Starbucks?

Our neighborhood Starbucks is gone. I don’t drink coffee but it was our go-to Craigslist sales transaction meeting place. I don’t know what the new thing is. I hope quarantine ends someday so that we can find out.

Kiss My Ass, Fascists

Call it a dry run for the General Election in November. I just delivered my mail in ballot for tomorrow’s Massachusetts Primary Election to Methuen City Hall. I’ll do it again in just over two months. Kiss my ass, trump, you nazi stooge you.

The Long Way Home

For the second day in a row I did some car vocals. Last night I wrote up lyrics for five more songs, all while watching The Bruins let game two slip away. I thought they were going to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat as Tampa Bay completely outplayed them, but no such luck. The Lightning took it in overtime.

So I had five more songs ready for bad singing and I drove to the movie theater again and cranked ’em out. There were no weird spectator moments like yesterday, but I did manage to wrap it up quickly (simply by choosing to not add harmony parts to one of the songs) so I decided to take the long way home.

This used to be the high school. Now it’s city hall. We have a nice, gigantic, city hall.
I asked the barrel to move. It ignored me. I yelled at it. It continued to ignore me.

Power Outage

The thunderstorm that tore through town today took out a bunch of trees and power lines and for the first time in the 10 years since we moved here we have an extended power outage.

So we are sitting outside in the muggy evening air and it’s kinda wonderful.

Oh, and I filled the bird feeders for the first time in a week. Just thought you should know.

The Stir Crazy Files – Episode 39: Monkey

I grew up in Tewksbury, Massachusetts.  Tewksbury, MA to us locals.

I just saw a post on BookFayce that is a screen shot of what looks like a reverse 911 text message stating that there is a monkey on the loose in Tewksbury.

A monkey.

Running amok (I assume) in my former town.

I am so fucking jealous I can’t even tell you.  I want a monkey to come to my house now.  Why should Tewksbury get all the monkeys?  Why can’t Methuen get a monkey too?  We get turkeys and deer and groundhogs and foxes and (once, I think) bobcats and (maybe) coyotes and hawks and eagles.  I want monkeys too!

I WANT AN EFFING MONKEY!!!!
