We're just following ancient history. If I strip for you will you strip for me?

They're playing basketball again. It's 1am. There are no lights on in the playground. I'd have broken a finger, or gotten a ball to the face by now if I was out there. Can kids see in the dark now? Last night they had a dog with them that would not stop yapping the whole time. Cheerleader.
Happy birthday Hailey, Eileen, Gina, Joe, and, since it's after midnight, Cindy. Sent Eileen a card. Hope she didn't move.
Saturday night, after working the all metal tribute to Michael Jackson, I went by Megan's bar to catch up with her a bit. The DJ played "Strip" by Adam Ant. She was playing a lot of 80s stuff. I don't know the last time I heard that song, but it reminded me of the night, probably 1984, when a plan was enacted to order a pizza from Towne Pizza, go pick it up, then pick up Rachael and Anu, who were across the street from Towne at Anu's place, and take them home with me. We hung out in my basement, ate pizza, and watched Adam Ant on Saturday Night Live. He played "Strip." I think Rachael just ate the pepperoni she picked off the pizza. I kept an eye on them from my front door while they went back to Anu's place. She lived just up the block.

I've had a terrible time with retail establishments the past few weeks. Dell computers has a completely incompetent customer service department. Once I'm done with the current series of "where is my shit" emails, and they're done sending me the same form letter in response over and over, I will never deal with them again. B&H Photo has made it so that you have to wait in even more lines than before, causing me to give up and walk out empty handed the other day. The other place that totally screwed me I'm not gonna mention until I'm sure their check clears. From now on, I buy everything from Amazon. (Even though the post office opens every package with an Amazon logo on it to see if it's something worth stealing.) So, yeah, that's where I stand right now. Pretty much hating everything. Keep your distance. Can't wait to see what happens with tomorrow's planned trip to Lowe's.
