per ol Doctor Freud…and no, i’m not throwing in the other memorable phrase “Arbeit Macht Frei”…in this case it refers to next week’s deadline…great image…of filing one’s US taxes to those Nazi’s known as the IRS…’don’t make enough to pay anything but you still gotta jump thru their hoops or risk their undying wrath(and not grapes). Do I file on Friday the 13th?
a 4-way meeting of the Mikes tonight at O’lot…Tallon, the X-Man, Donley and moi…thank you, Senor Crisman for the freebie cocktail…he’s celebrating(or was)the relatively easy/rapid closing on the real estate purchase of a little pied a terre in SLO..San Luis Opisbo or am I thinking of the other SLO in so-cal? ‘am i thinking is the question, always…sorta like my foolish conclusion that Brielle Miel’s art exhibition was last night at Angies…wrong, rum-breath…it’s really really this Friday the 13th at Angies…per Brielle and confirmed 2X today….
Sierra Harding on the patio and looking like the young Ingrid Bergman in the classic “For
Whom The Bell Tolls’…at least, the X-Man and i thought/think so..the Man from Austin who shalt not be named within has a classic Land Rover for sale…a ’69 model in totally great/refurbished condition…$14K…kinda cream/cafe au lait color..original factory color..phone # is on the window..
and no, Rich N…that quote of a rabid reader a few days ago was verbatim…after some disturbing conversations this morning with a long time Antigueno, i’m reminded that it used to be that 10% of the US population was considered to be mentally ill…now? 1 outa 5 and the prescription drugs kill more than blow/smack or any other combination of such…is it any wonder that a similar proportion of gringos here are included in those stats? look around…you can usually find ‘em on the benches in the park…afternoons, mostly..
ah, the legal beagles are rubbing their hands, yet again: 4th calle, ground zero for the latest in ’sue you, sue me and your ass goes away(or $$)for ‘defamation of charactor’…people..listen up here: I’ve known lawyers, worked for lawyers and they are the only winners…they get paid to listen to you whine and at every turn, they’re drinking expensive wine on your dime..this is not Perry Mason time…i don’t know what Gaute attorneys charge per hour but in San Francisco a decent price was $500 an hour…I charged $275 as an expert witness…mea culpa, yet again..
it looks like Pizza Mia on 4th ave isn’t closing, altho the newly opened American Diner a few doors up ought to…there’s a new pizza outlet next to La Casaca on the plaza..Ileona or ? yep..another pizza joint, filling a need for yet another insane idea..’been told that La Casaca’s fruit platter(yogurt, honey and granola for 25q)is a killer dish…if one were so inclined, tell me..
