Gas at $1.30 and rising
Notice that the price of gas is missing on this sign? That's because it is not built to allow you to put up a number over ninety-nine cents on there. It's like Y2K all over again.
I had some great dreams last night but they faded too quickly for me this morning... like an old memory. I need to run to the keyboard first thing and pedantically type out what the dream imagination feeds me. Otherwise I do a bad job reinventing the dream with the few renegade images left to me and botch what was cool about it. Maybe the power of a dream on the mind, like an old memory, is that you want to try to recover it a little. good jokes do that, and good stories. is it a physiological thing that they do? Is it a brain-chemical feedback thing that makes us love them -- so much that we try to 'reconstruct' them, and end up crudely building false memories as monuments to lost thought?
