Nothing too special over the weekend.  Just making note that Town Hall’s jukebox is as collective as the patrons.  Someone played “Redneck Woman”.  It’s a great pop country song, but after living in Indiana, your threshold for that shit grows very thin.  You learn to hate perfectly good songs like “Before He Cheats” before you even give them a chance.  So, I was happy to hear some syrupy glossy Gretchen Wilson single in the mix, rather than listen to the twenty-two minute squealing bologna of the Velvet Underground.

DOUBLE WHAMMY TODAY.

First, I had a conversation years back with a special lady friend about the inability for women to grow facial hair.  She expressed her disappointment.  “Why would a God discriminate against women like that?  It’s not fair at all.” 

She paused and added, “I think it’d be awesome to have a beard.”

The second drawing has been floating around the apartment since the Pride parade came through and destroyed my neighborhood.  And for the following week you could see glitter, confetti, and feathers all over the sidewalk, as if a gay H-Bomb exploded at Roscoe and Halsted.
