Winamp 5?! Boy, have I been out of the loop. I remember when Winamp 3 was all controversial and shiny. Just gotta delete about ten gigs of mp3s to free up some space (I'm down to my last 200 meg, heh), and check the little bugger out. _

Guess I'm working tonight after all. No bar for me. But weekends are easy -- no getting people up. And money is good. And the weekend guy keeps the T.V. down pretty low, compared to the other two. I'll wear my new gangsta pants. _

Two books I think I'm gonna have to buy pretty soon:

Street of Crocodiles, by Bruno Schultz

The Life and Opinions of the Tomcat Murr . . . together with a fragmentary Biography of Kapellmeister Johannes Kreisler on Random Sheets of Waste Paper, by E. T. A. Hoffmann

Hopefully Shakespeare & Co. will be able to order 'em. I tried to order Alberchtsberger's concerto for Mandora and Jew's Harp from Rockin' Rudy's a while back, and they said they couldn't get it, so I might have to go through the internet for it. I do try to do my duty as an upstanding consumer and all, but sometimes it just don't work, y'know? _

My mom wants to find some good restaurants in Prague. She's been looking through tourist guides and things, but I don't want to see her duped into paying lots of money for mediocre food just 'cause a place finagled itself a high rating. Anyone know anyplace reputable, or where I might go to find one? _

A hazard of listening to The Lyre of Orpheus and Leonard Cohen in quick succession: it causes one to strut down the street singing,

"Geraint no cure, Geraint no cure, Geraint no cure for love...!" _

Well, my best shirt's too small,
but my worst one fits just right
You know my best shirt's too small,
but oh my worst one fits just right
I don't know which one to wear now
'Cause either way I look a fright. _

Today I saw a $10,000 reward poster for a man who murdered three people in Ravalli county. He was wearing a top hat and a leather duster.

Tonight I saw a boy swinging flaming weights on the ends of long chords. He called them poi, and told me they were kevlar wicks dipped in kerosene. He was very good at it -- intricate patterns, blinding quick. It was wonderful to see the snow come down onto the fire.

I also saw four or five thick icicles all braided together by a fence. I guess they had dripped off some sort of many-pronged plant. I desperately wanted to break them, 'cause I feel like half the satisfaction in icicles is the breaking... but I didn't. _

My bottle of EZ-Cheez sits right next to my bottle of contact lens solution on a high shelf in my room. I'm so glad I don't live in a wacky screwball comedy. _

Now that I'm all blazing through the net like a Mauritanian luger, I've decided to go out and exploit some free hookups for that sweet sweet music. I've spent the morning trawling a place called Peoplesound. It's got lots of classical stuff, some of it rare, and pretty much all of it decent. Oh, and free. Free! I love this. Damn yes I do. _
