There’s a dog outside–it sounds like it’s in the Dairy Queen parking lot–that’s been yipping and barking for hours now. At first I thought a Dairy Queen visitor had left their dog in the car, but it’s been too long for that now, and I’m confused. This morning I went for a walk at the… Read More »

doris zine blog
Probably my favorite zine in the world is called Doris. It’s made by someone named Cindy. Something wonderful happened, which is that Cindy started a blog. Here it is, if you want to read it. http://doriszineblog.blogspot.com/ I just read everything there.
Saturday when I drove to choir practice in my truck, the check engine light was on. But today when I ran errands, the check engine light wasn’t on.
Berkeley and San Francisco
Today we went to Berkeley and San Francisco. We went to Long Haul Infoshop, where I donated about 40 zines to their zine library. We ate delicious food at a Thai temple for lunch and delicious Indian-Pak food in the Tenderloin for dinner. We rode the BART. It was really good to get out of… Read More »

The left hand works the bellows, and the right hand plays the keyboard. P says I’m working too hard, so next time I’m going… Read More »
three media consumptions
I watched Gigantic: A Tale of Two Johns, which is a documentary about one of my favorite bands, They Might Be Giants. I found it inspiring. It made me feel like there are more possibilities in the world for me, a badly-needed feeling. I’ve also listened to two new CDs lately (new to me)–Unplugged by… Read More »
the weekend was good
Erik scored SAT for 10 hours on Saturday. Sunday the system was down in the evening. I had a good weekend doing my usual activities at my place of worship. Also, Saturday was karma yoga day, the annual work day at the center. I was senior sitting and did some cleaning in the bookstore. Glass… Read More »
