mindlessly thwacked what must have been a mosquito as it made a bloody mess on my pristine white wall. thank goodness for those magic erasers which ive only employed since moving here. the are, well, magic. i dont know what theyre made from but if its aborted fetuses id say its still worth it.
finally some catholic content. the daily lunchtime/recess shriekfest at the catholic school nextdoor can be trying especially for someone who has in the past week complained of squeaky doors and faucets. (on cue the neighbors door squeaks) i get it you are having fun, not inquisition level fun (see, i brought it back) but the only thing bloody is my spiking blood pressure and what im liable to do about it. want me to deconstruct that pun for you? theres a iron maiden spikey torture joke in there too but who was the time?
and just like that, lunch is over. ceasefire in play til 3pm.
its that time of year again. yes, you guessed it, im saying goodbye to my oldest still in use t-shirt. the oldest t-shirt in my collection is, of course, my 1977 giorgio chinaglia soccer camp t-shirt in a sky blue but this one is nearly as special as it is the last of the first batch of american apparel t-shirts i bought from an old jewish-owned t-shirt wholesaler storefront formerly on grand st just east of orchard. thats right. you know the one. schmedricks or something. think it was 2005 or so and they were about $7 bucks a pop versus $18 in the american apparel store a half mile away or so on houston. fuck you, perv guy! i won! you all know who i am talking about. but this is also an extra special occasion as it marks the first time i bought ordinary t-shirts in bulk (hanes undershirts notwithstanding) which i am surprised their has been no holiday to comemmorate. but the beastie boys just got that corner of ludlow & rivington named after them so i probably have another six years or so before my time arrives. the campaign begins forthwidth! i will have to admit it outlasted its other brethern by being my least favorite color option and sat for years unused on the shelf along with the violet j crew t-shirts and the itchy northface one. although years later we grew close, it might have even become my favorite of the bunch primarily because i have forgotten the rest. not true, navy & black & umber or especially you, kelly green. ill never forget you. never. so pour one at for ash brown, it might not actually be that color but im too lazy to get up and match it at the moment.... because i am so broken up at losing a friend, nay, my best friend.

There was a big migrating flock or part of a flock of Robins up in the trees around here at sunset today.
Space x satellites. Seen locally shortly after sunset in the NW sky, a string of southbound lights briefly and then they disappeared. Took a google and found this.
Guess I'm going to have to rethink that whole bucket list thing.
