Underwear Ninja comes with Space Suit
to blog or not to blog, which is the path a true underwear ninja must take? whichever path it be, it will surely be a rough-hewn one. argyle, possibly.

ah, grande ole saturday again
so i didn't work last night and tonight i work at 8pm. being that, i had gotten plenty of rest and had lots of free time. wowie zowie free time!
i decided to go to central park and take pictures of the autumn trees. here's the scene: its cold out. a very nippy afternoon with clear skies. there is a saxophonist under one of the bridges in central park, like a troll, invisible. the trees are brown and yellow and orange and red, and some are dead. i didn't take pics of those ones.
an old lady saw me taking pictures and she waddles slowly up to me and says "taking pictures? you damn scum!" and she continues waddling away indecipherably about me.
my picture-taking expedition took me to the other side of central park and up about 10 blocks.
i wonder how many french people are still in france. i think they're all here. i'd say a typical day has at least 3 encounters with people speaking fluent french around me; central park today was chock full of them. i mean, they have a huge middle-eastern immigration problem and then there's the deal with all those riots nowadays. so are there actually french people living in france now or did they all migrate to NYC?
i'm really psyched about seeing "wicked" on broadway. about a month ago i was staring at a billboard for about 20-30 minutes and i really started appreciating the design. i went home and tried to get a poster online, but they don't make posters the way i want them. they only have ones with flying monkeys on it. apparently i want the "old" one without the monkies and is out-of-print. so i acquiesced to download all the music. listening to it first i thought, "man this is over-synthesized." then i started piecing the storty together; listening more closely to the words. once i learned the words and the story, i really appreciated it musically. now i can't think of any other music during the day. i hum it to myself and everything. its embarrassing. so now i really want to see it. i just have to find someone to see it with, preferrably a girl but i wouldn't mind if i saw it with alex.
anyway, back in central park, i'm trying to get back where i was and i got lost and went to a little concession stand. i got a grilled cheese sandwich. it was stale. it was also $3.50. what in the world business do they have charging $3.50 for a kraft single laying between 2 small pieces of toast? i asked how to get out. he said "walk in any direction and keep going until you get out". smartass.... oh well, i guess i wasn't specific enough.
