"Broken heart, huh?"
"Does it show?"
"Listen, when you've been tickling the ivories for as long as I have, you see a broken heart for every drop of rain, a shattered dream for every falling star..."
--Rowlf and Kermit, The Muppet Movie
run away with me
and then what
be with me
And our kisses were like chewing dynamite.
I turn the set back on and close my eyes. "I want to understand you," a woman is saying to The Fugitive. "You will in time," The Fugitive tells her. "May I use your car?"
--Jay Gummerman, "We Find Ourselves in Moontown"
It's very hard to get your head and heart to work together in life. In my case, they're not even friendly.

Read a Dan Savage article about a widely ignored study that gay men have larger dicks on average, possibly relating to neonatal hormone levels. Well, my some accounts my dad was well hung, I'm not particularly, so maybe it follows?

Family reunion picnic Saturday, at Scott + Beth's. Before we left my mom + aunt stopped by to see the apartment; it was odd how feverent Mo was about cleaning beforehand. The biggest revelation from that visit was that my dad was actually a shade under six feet tall.
The picnic itself was probably the best one yet: the generation after me (It's funny how I'm such a 'tweener) is finally old enough to be interesting to talk to. Adam is going to WPI in the fall, in computer science, so we had much to talk about.
Called up Kyle Parrish- had a good meandering chat, plus we'll be meeting Wednesday.
Life is a search for the truth; and there is no truth
This is exactly how the World Wide Web works: the HTML files are the pithy description on the paper tape, and your Web browser is Ronald Reagan. The same is true of Graphical User Interfaces in general.

Playing with the Wind Ensemble at Tufts Commencement, then 4 or 5 of us went off to play at the Dental School Graduation. We were waiting for one person, so the director John showed us how easy it was to fake regal sounding fanfares. (And much much later I found out his wife miscarried that day.)
"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."
"When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. And that's my religion."
"I'm taking care of you
Taking good care of you
For, once, I was very little, too
Now I take care of you."
My basic rule of life is, "Do unto others as you would [have others] do unto you." It's not Christian, it's global. It's a simple rule, and in most situations it tells you what you should do. If you ever wonder, "What should I do?" and you ask yourself that question--"What would I want somebody else to do?"--suddenly you know the right answer.
What is (or was) on the inside of a bellybutton? Just some connection to the bloodstream?
"You were thinkin' too much. I mean, he's there, he's hittin' ya, ya can't *think* about this, Joey, it takes too long."
"I thought you said it was a mental game."
"In a sense, yes. But primarily, no. Primarily, you gotta hit the guy."
--Ethan Coen, "Destiny"
