Things I know

I can be remarkably chipper even when the song running through my head is Johnny Cash’s apocalyptic-sad cover of “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails.

Crime fiction is rarely all that interesting to me. True crime, too. I’m reading a novel that kind of combines the two, American Tabloid by James Ellroy, the L.A. Confidential author. I know now I’m not really in the mood to read about an almost all-amoral cast of crooked characters whose actions lead to the Bay of Pigs debacle, but it takes a lot to get me to give up on a book, so I’ll keep going. (Interestingly enough, I actually like the film of L.A. Confidential quite a lot, so maybe a different part of my brain was able to process the movie…)

For one person, it seems I generate massive amounts of dirty dishes.

It’s neat that I get to go past an actual submarine on my commute, and that I work at OHSU’s hilltop campus, which reminds me of Starfleet Headquarters on the hills northwest of the Golden Gate.

Oh, I know more. But I won’t write about it yet…

    I think I should wait until I have something better to brag about.

    I think it's okay to talk about your life, if you have something you want to share, even if you are doing well.

    I've been serving myself to watch this one day.
