Got home at 1am last night, got the kid to gymnastics 20 minutes after we woke up, wife's off delivering babies, and Google Play Music decided I needed to hear this song for the first time in 20 years:

I'm very much not enjoying Los Angeles this year but I was given the keys to a 2006 E55 AMG last night because my friends are desperately trying to talk me out of a fried-egg-headlight Porsche 911 (they're cheap at the moment). So, it turns out, are 2006 E55 AMGs.

Tonight I have a flight. Tomorrow I get up at 5am. The last 48 hours in Los Angeles included the following on the bike path:

(1) attempted arson

(1) homeless woman peeing on the sidewalk who, upon seeing me noticing her, shimmied her boobs at me

(1) dude in a folding office chair under a streetlamp shooting up heroin on a Sunday night

(2) open-air drug deals

(1) night heron

(1) incongruous Brandt's Cormorant

Last night we had a massive infestation of mosquitoes. The frogs were so loud they were audible over the gun shots and home-made fireworks. It is boring out here; reading your adventures on the bike make me like living in the boring just a bit more.

Cultivate the boring.

My sister came up; that clusterfuck was such chaos I literally left my bag at home. I'm over this shit.

Gonna have to fedex myself my laptop. Until then, at least the bourbon is free and I have a Ken Follett book.

I have Neuromancer on my bookshelf. I keep meaning to read it but keep putting it off because I don't think I'll like it. What are your thoughts on it?

Considering how you've lost your shit for like five months running over Deep Space Nine, I'd say skip it.

If you hadn't lost your shit for like five months running over Deep Space Nine, I'd say this:

Oh, I haven't been shitting on it that long. More like a month. ;)

I think I'll pass it up for the moment. I'll hold onto it though, just in case.

You're damn Skippy you're gonna hold onto it, because it was a gift to us from your friend and I haven't read it yet.
