Listening to: She Wants Revenge - Sister
It's about balance. You take the good with the bad....


Yesterday? It was official... I'd lost my monthly buspass. Fuck.
But, the ticket-taker at the metro was away from his station and had left the turnstiles unlocked.
Green-light! Yay.

Today? Big rain, glare-ice and übersloppiness causing traffic hideousness. Entitled, self-important car-people opt to shove-in and flood the public-transit with their airs and charming personalities. Elbows in the back and incensed huffs all the way to the Metro.
But then I witness courtesy as a young man offered his arms to an elderly lady trying to make her way across a slippery street.

The balance isn't quite redressed, but as long as the teeter is tottering there's promise.

Wise words, kind words.
I always knew that you were one of the Good Ones.

ehhh.. okay. The Monks may have written it first but that doesn't change that you're one of the Good Ones.

Darth Vader? He'd never have committed that thought to memory, I just know it!

$63.00 CAD whuch, in AUD is $71.7504. Not the end of the world, really - until you stop to calculate that in beers. That's when it gets tragic and grown men start to cry. ;-)

Sounds like Toronto when I visited. Rainy...no sunshine. Not horribly cold, but not balmy. Just...yucky.

I demand that you bring yourself and the wifey to St. Louis when it's beautiful (going to be in the 60s soon) so I can show you hip places like University City (where Nelly grew up, ya know?) and the Botanical Gardens...and so I can pick your brain and snuggle the stuffing out of you.

xoxo.

I don't know this Nelly, but I'd be wanting to meet Dani.

Heh...just a famous rap star. Has quite an influence on the folks out here. Not a huge biggie.
