Walking commentary (Possibly too much info, but I'll accept that and go on)

You know, when I talk to myself, I make sure I'm doing it by myself.

A few minutes ago I was in the bathroom when a guy came in, commenting on the bathroom and our sudden heat wave and such, and kept this up as he left, with me obviously in there too.

And one day last week I was walking on the OHSU-VA skybridge (there's that bridge again) and a guy was doing the same thing: he whipped out his camera to photograph some panel damage on the side of OHSU, saying conversationally to himself "I'm gonna take this picture and send it to the Oregonian. They can spend 50 million dollars on a tram but they can't fix that." I thought "Yeah, I really respect the opinion of someone talking to himself that loudly..."
