Arg. Back pain.
Feels like someone has been kicking on my kidneys.
I had this once before, coupla years ago, and Aden massaged it out by moving her hands down my spine.
"Wow. No pain whatsover."
"You just needed to be touched."
McClint: that is the funniest thing i've seen in a long time
JPennant: Maybe Ive been in Cali too long, but twin gospel mimes doesnt seem weird to me
McClint: oh yeah you've been brainwashed
JPennant: Oh my god! My mind has been opened!
JPennant: Did I lose my mind too?
McClint: i think so
JPennant: Oh ok.
JPennant: As long as I know what happened to it

Marah came upon my site and found that she had questions. Considering that Ive been writing online since 1997, there seems to be a lot of backstory that needs to be explained now.
How MUCH of a backstory, I didnt realize until she asked.
are you jamaican? were you born there?
how'd you get to new york? what's the geeky
thing that you'll never do again? what do
you do now? when IS your birthday anyway?
Answering that made me think about doing a FAQ for the site...
JPennant: Someone suggested I write a FAQ for my site.
george: It's not a bad idea.
george: Not everyone who visits
george: will have the time to go back through your material and gain that vital context.
JPennant: thats true. Plus, Ive had the site since 1996? 1997? and the blog since 2000
JPennant: What would you wanna know?
george: Probably some of the same stuff that's in this. http://www.mdcbowen.org/cobb/archives/004356.html
JPennant: Hrm. Ok.
george: Something that offered a sense of what you've done and where you've been so far.
george: But really, how you do it is up to you. Whatever common questions you get are probably the best lead-ins.
Ok, so does anybidy else have questions they'd like me to answer?

It's gonna be a full load this semester. But better now, than later.
My first time in college I wanted to take everything. Now, Im following the advice of my professors back then:
"Get what you need, and get the hell out."
Yes indeed. Because they shoulda added:
"For you have a life to live."
from the Hawaiian Drive Inn on Mission.
Eh, not so great.
At least the Musubi was fresh ..
JPennant: well, I had me a teriyaki mixed plate from a hawaiian place in the mission
JPennant: kinda crappy
mars: you have to come to hawaii for stuff like that. sheesh
JPennant: yeah. im counting on it
Today was such a day.
Not too many years ago, I'd tremble at the approach of change.
Then I learned to embrace it. With trepidation.
Now, I feel like Im surfing a wave.
