April 2008

I ran into Jenny at the grocery store and she was wearing her jeans inside out (she had been painting), and while I was talking to her Doug and Adam walked by and waved. Nick bought a new bicycle with a corduroy seat. I saw a man riding a bicycle and carrying a black lab in the front basket, and it was standing up.

Brigid started her own line of pyjamas. Tony has quit the same job as least 6 times, and has had at least 2 going away functions, from the same department. Kate once bought me a pair of pyjamas. Much later, the knee ripped and now there is a patch on the knee.

Albert copied Jana’s handwriting and used it in some of his music videos. Jana doesn’t know Albert, but she saw the video and she said that it was weird to see her own handwriting saying things she herself had not thought. Charlie handwrites the character “g” the old-fashioned way, with two ovals, a connector, and a little stem on the top oval.

Mary the volunteer empties the pencil sharpener in my office every week. She told me that some pencil sharpeners can explode, if too full of shavings.

I found a contact lens under the couch.

Shaw is having a batchelor’s party, but he didn’t know anything about planning one, so he had to look it up on wikipedia. Ryan played me a version of Bohemian Rhapsody, as interpreted by Mario Paint. Tom is on tour and he stayed at a house in the south where the tenants had adopted a red fox. Mike has a coatamundi for a pet, which is a South American raccoon.

I hit the wrong button on my printer and now the display reads in a language that I don’t even recognize. Emily did something to her phone and now when you call her, it plays classical music instead of ringing. She doesn’t know how to fix it. Nick once again signed off an email with a musical note, but he doesn’t know how he does it. It just mysteriously appears.

When Fritz was younger, he attended 12 summer camps in one summer. Patti’s friend is pretending he is gay with his tennis partner so that he can get “life partner” benefits at the gym.

I saw a chair nailed to the side of a house, 15 feet off the ground. I tried to take a photograph, but the sun was in an unfortunate position, and then the person inside the house started staring at me. Leeann is plotting an indoor garden with 6 kinds of peppers.

Molly sent me a picture of a goat’s pupil (which is rectangular, in case you were unaware). Megha is arranging for an interview of a guy who lives in New Mexico and runs a museum dedicated to Black Holes. Jim has a thing for scenes in movies where the characters in that movie are actually watching a movie themselves.

There is something beeping in the house, but I cannot find it.

    I think Michael may have exaggerated. I actually was born at summer camp, though it was kept quiet.

    Goat’s pupils are rectangular?
    I love the ping pong poster.

    I may be your Mom but I love that ping pong poster too. I hope I can get a family rate price. By the way, I kept the pencil sharpener from my classroom when I retired.
