giant GABUNZA 50% sale at work

and the next person who
comes in and shouts out
"gabunza!" in a horrible
and insulting asian accent
will get a swift headbutt
to their throat, courtesy
of yours truly. my only
request that that person
be tall, because i can't
crouch or squat and THEN
headbutt. i need to be
standing upright.

also, gabunza is a term
the owner came up with.
i think it means something
zen-like. like the sale
is so huge that you can't
even see it. its everywhere.
huge, like fog. ...
in other words, i have no
idea what it means.


and with major sales
in bookstores, you
invariably get the "well
i normally wouldn't buy
this for $4.99, but for
$2.50, i'm more than
willing to broaden my
knowledge of maine's
highway infrastructure",
and the old ladies
who seemingly seem content
with throwing their
S.S money at me for
partially damaged, and
non-refundable goods.

i love you,
carl

    AN OPEN LETTER TO
    KENTUCKY HEAT, PHD


    to kentucky heat, three on
    the doorstep, the thin of
    a ranch slept t'the right,
    aye drunk! a rented room
    all alone, saddle mattress
    I developed from cashy
    lady, she was ideal, via
    flapping flags, goodbye
    goldenrods, and rigors,
    and dry towns, goodbye.

tomorrow night: screen printing
madness. cd covers. hardcore
octopus! black! like if winslow
homer was commissioned to
do metal records.

apt. temp: 85


    its the price i pay for
    having heat included
    in the rent. sure i lose

    i'm saving, i can buy
    new plants and lbs.


breaks over,
back to work.

akuma no uta / slalom knocks

    currently painting to | boris


thought about giving you my
accu-weather forcast. didn't.
instead i will say that my sarcasm
has risen sharply due to the
impending 36 inches of snow.
everytime someone asks me
"how much snow we gettin?"
i kick the exaggerated total
up a few. and since ias just
asked, i'm going with the bold
prediction, of 48 inches.

if i had a tv, i'd be all up
in giant slalom's face.
i am a sucker for human
intrest stories. especially
the ones that typically
manifest in the giant
slalom circles.

SUPER SIZE IT

instead of restaurants with bathrooms,
there should be bathrooms with
restaurants. sure nine out of the ten
times you use the bathroom you
probably were not hungry. but
think about that one time. and
how great it would've been to
look to your left, and saw some
sandwiches or a deli spread.

stopping of the presses

"i'm still waiting for the day
when they call a meeting just
for the sole purpose of
watching [name deleted]'s
head explode.... it'll be like
going to a gallagher show."

not to toot my own horn,
but sometimes my killing
of two birds with one stone
crack me up. in this case,
i get to blow off work
steam, by doubling it w/
the inevitable gallagher
knock. i don't even care
if i'm spelling his name
wrong.
