a lil' vacation at beth's

When I got here Jason was packing his stuff. She took him to an undisclosed location a few hours south of the city, and was going to meet me at a Georgetown bar called the nine-pound hammer, around 2200hrs.

They told me the best Mexican food restaurant in the neighborhood and Jason said I could just ride his bike and not have to drive. They headed out at about 1800hrs and I retired upstairs to play EV : Nova before I left.

The Mexican food restaurant? Nice lady, good guacamole. Soggy Chili Rellenos though. I ate until I was stuffed to the gills and almost finished the combo. I put Jason's too-tight bike shoes back on, and proceeded to the hammer.

A pool game and a couple of drinks and 2230hrs. No Beth. Sweet lonely Georgetown...I headed home. The hammer is about the only mellow place in Georgetown.

Beth called me on the way home. Dear girl, she was just heading home now and lost one of her contact lenses. Poor thing, had to put up with Jason's antidisestablishmentarianism for the last few months; I bet she's still sad to see him go. Hope she gets home okay with a missing contact.

Had fun but missn'my girl.

shaving cream

Shaving Cream, by Benny Bell (mp3, 2.6MB)

I have a sad story to tell you.
It may hurt your feelings a bit.
last night, when I walked in my bathroom,
I stepped in a pile of...
Shaving cream, be nice and clean!
Shave every day, and you'll always look keen.

I think I'll break up with my girlfriend.
Her antics are queer, I'll admit.
Each time I say "Darling, I love you,"
She tells me that I'm full of...
Shaving cream, be nice and clean!
Shave every day, and you'll always look keen.

A baby fell out of the window.
You'd think that her head would be split.
But good luck was with her that morning.
She fell in a barrel of...
Shaving cream, be nice and clean!
Shave every day, and you'll always look keen.

When I was in France with the Army,
One day I looked into my kit.
I thought I would find me a sandwich,
But the darn thing was loaded with...
Shaving cream, be nice and clean!
Shave every day, and you'll always look keen.

And now, folks, my story is ended.
I think it is time I should quit.
If any of you feel offended,
Stick your head in a barrel of...
Shaving cream, be nice and clean!
Shave every day, and you'll always look keen.

more business of business

For those who don't live with me and are curious how the whole business thing is going, it seems to be going rather well. If everyone who had contacted us in the past 2 weeks about our services were to say they wanted to hire us, then we'd probably have to either turn some work down or hire someone.

It's cool. But it's still the interim phase where I'm going to have to work my ass off a little before there's actual cash flow resulting from all this interest. But damn, I think we're rollin' like a real business. I have a feeling that our first year of business might end up being profitable.
