Of passing amusement:
- Everybody, giggle with me now: Nimrod orogeny! Hee hee hee hee hee.
- Eco-art experiment? Or overly abundant faith in that axiom about trash and treasure?
SUNDAY June 25th – YIPPEE! Somebody almost took the futon today! It was rolled up and moved from the curb over to the edge of the sidewalk. Looks like it was just too heavy, what with the water and drool and urine and oil. So it’s still available, simply seething with friendly earthworms, snails, slugs, and perhaps a salamander or two. Experience Oakland’s sub-sidewalk ecology, with layers of fauna and flora which you might never have known would grow in a dark, dirty, wet places. So the value of your futon is enhanced by a slice of urban ecology!
- I was sauteeing a portobello mushroom cap for dinner (mushroom + bell pepper + sharp goat cheese = sammich!); it was gills-down in the pan when I decided to smush it down a little with my spatula and lo and behold, it made fart noises! Farty-sounding enough to bring my housemate into the kitchen, wondering if I was going to die. Hee hee.
