Everything from “Change me” to “Turn off that damn Raffi record!”

There is something coming for me. It’s really exciting – it’s coming via FedEx. This is all new to me, but you can go to their website and punch in a tracking code and find out where the parcel is.

So, wow – it’s been to good old Memphis, home of Elvis and the ancient Greeks, then temporarily anchored down in Anchorage, Alaska — and now it’s stuck at customs at Incheon. As far as I know, no one’s written any songs about Incheon.
I don’t know if FedEx is a good company or not, but I am obsessed with the arrow in its logo. I visit the website just to look at the logo.

More things should be trackable like this. I would sign a thing at the supermarket saying I will buy a bottle of milk next Friday, so they could put a virtual label ‘for yak sox’ on a bottle.

We didn’t feed animals at the zoo or then later see a movie too, but yesterday was the Perfect Day – the one that I spent with my new bestest friend, Jin.
At one point we were walking along, holding hands, talking — and the street is busy busy as always and there’s this older guy standing to the side who smiles and says to me, “How’s it going mate, alright?” with the kind of voice/accent and look that he could’ve come straight out of the Collingwood cheersquad stand.
Because of the crowds and everything it was the kind of situation where, by the time I had turned around to take a second look he was gone.

Anyway, for some crazy reason I told Jin about this site, and unlike pretty much every other flesh and blood individual who I feel comfortable enough to tell, she actually reads it, (Hi!) and went so far as to check out all the links down the leftside. She asked me about the banana-phone Flash animation. I know, I know, in hindsight it’s not that great. I think the say the F-word too much – to a point where it’s a script weakness.
