Because shitty?

The wheels of justice and my part in keeping them greased [ick]

 So, yes, jury duty yesterday.  They care not a whit that I had a two-week-old child (have I mentioned her, btw?) nor that I was going to Washington this coming week - "the cases don't usually last more than a day..." - so there I was in the -5 degrees yesterday, ready to keep American Justice moving apace.  As it happened, my mYsTeRiOuS WoRkPlAcE was closed for weather, so I wasn't missing any work.  Then, this being D_____, the defendant failed to show and all 50 souls in the jury pool were turned loose!  Which meant that I got to put away the clean clothes that had been sitting on the dryer for about 9 days.  JUSTICE IS SERVED!

An auntie brought this by for that "Miss Havisham on Sunset Blvd" feel.

Can I pull off this look?

Kids: worth it!

Sitting around with a two and a half week old baby can lead to lightly binge-watching Bored to Death, which we would not have done otherwise.

Also: a perfect example of a show that guys will like and women will tolerate.  If you were looking for one!

Well, yes

Some dopes

Street energy

Also, I may have mentioned this years ago,

but how come there's no "monolith" alarm clock?   No time on face, just gives the screech when it's time to get up.  That there's a beach house - on the moon!

Like you,

I often find myself thinking I should listen to Diamond Dogs more:

A thing I will tell my daughter

"Bibi," I will say, as she is all a-dandle on my knee, "if Thom Yorke put this record out, everyone would wig out and Radiohead wouldn't be as awful as they are.  Remember this...[whispers] remember this..."
