In the year 2000, there were about 796,518 full time, sworn police officers scattered across 17,784 agencies. The US Census estimates that the US population was 281,421,906 at that point. That's 0.28% I wonder how that stacks up against other nations.
I went to see the Cramps. Greatest thing of my life, but Spuds was there. When I got home, I just cried for an hour.

Wow, John Peel died. He introduced a lot of rad British bands in the 80s. Many of his shows featuring live performances are on CD. Good stuff.
God, Clerks is on IFC again. I think I've seen this more than Blade Runner now.

Someone bring me a #2 from Roberto's. Don't forget the salsa verde and the horchata.

During the rains, I found a microwave in the dumpster. I was taking the trash out and noticed several couches and a futon frame. I thought of grabbing the futon frame but I wasn't wearing shoes and it had already been buried a little. Next to that was the microwave. It wasn't that dirty, just a little cooking mess that came off easily. Some mail had been shoved inside, like a hurried packing job. I wonder if the person that left it just didn't have time to grab it or forgot it or what. I found the exact model on Walmart's site for $30.
It’s been such a strange week. I keep having sharp depressive attacks that morph into maudlin moods. At least the weather has finally turned. The first day of the rain, as I was waiting on Pecos and Flamingo for the bus, I heard the PA at the gas station/car wash across the street playing “About the Weather”. The gray clouds and strong wind made me ache for redwoods and deer, or maybe a raccoon or squirrel as well.

Useless fact of the day: I10 streches 2,460.34 miles from Los Angeles, CA to Jacksonville, FL.
Skinny Puppy fucking ruled. I'm so lucky to have seen these shows this year.

Banks suck. My debit card got locked for fraud investigation somehow (like there are tons of random purchases or something, all I have are withdrawals from Cheers!) My roommate got a phone message but forgot to tell me so when I tried to get money when I was out drinking the atm machine barfed my card up. So I called the bank and got it taken care of, or so I thought. The next day it happened again! Only this time, I was hanging out with a women I met on Fucknuggets.

Sorry, no updates. I haven't been doing that much. I did get my tickets to Skinny Puppy (the two-for-one thing at House of Blues again) so time to find a date.

Insert bad joke here.
