Tad’s Mood Today

Daughter and I were talking today, and decided on some names you should never give girl-children:

Mary-Catheter
Bivalva
Scrofulette
Gorgonzola
Flatuleen
Scabby-Anne
Buttafuoca
and
“Whiskers”

Separating myself from the politics of the thing for a moment, the Ryan choice makes the Republican party seem, at a symbolic level, to be choosing to appear as white, male, and don’t-tax-the-wealthy as they could possibly be. That seems to be banking a lot on the pro-rich, anti-black-president vote.

From Rick Cuevas: “video (thanks to Mark Bracewell) from 4 august backyard Tiki Party…. featuring Tad Williams et al. Psycho Killer, cover by SAVAGE ROGER 4 Aug.2012 at the Tiki Party… filmed by Mark Bracewell…”

Tad’s Mood Today

Just in case you were thinking about sleeping tonight.

Donkey in a park

Idiot chihuahuas, at least those who live at my house, bark so hard at strangers sometimes that the effort makes them bounce backward on four stiff legs, like a wind-up toy.

And I for one am darn grateful.

I have returned. Had a lovely few days in New York doing lots of useful work and hanging out with dear people, sandwiched by the dreadful Wonder Bread of a couple of tough travel days. And my luggage is still not with me. But it’s only dirty clothes and they’ll deliver it, so I’m not exactly dwelling morbidly on the situation. Anyway, thanks and love to my New York darlings, human and otherwise, and hello, Facebook friends. You’ll believe a man can fly!

Tad’s Mood Today

Off to the airport. I may not get a chance to post for a few days — very busy trip. If not, remember me as I was, huge, tanned, heroic, and extremely sensible. Remember?

Had a lovely night at a lovely party with lovely friends. Only complaint: my friends and I were playing music so I hardly got any chance to catch up with folks. Still, great time. Thanks, Teresa! A fab shindig. You are the Tiki Queen.

Again, as I’m getting ready to go on a trip, and doing a zillion other things, and getting ready to go to a party tomorrow and see a bunch of people I like and love (but only briefly, because it’ll be a big, busy party) I feel that my major failing in life is scheduling.

Okay, that was a terrible sentence, but — and this is is no joke — I remember feeling that I was really desperately far behind on everything one day back in 1993, a sort of crisis of the soul, and I’ve certainly never caught up since.

I do not foresee a good ending to this situation. I will have to forego sleep for the next twenty-five years of my life just to break even.

Buttermilk the dwarf Nigerian goat may be kind of a nightmare to hang around with if you’re another goat, but you have to admire her skillz.
