'nuther pedacito de la vida (casi) loca: I'm thinkin'...

...I do that. 'Bout nothin' special. Just stuff. Like, is it donuts? Or doughnuts? And why is it what it is? Why is English so confusing? Why can't I remember the rule for accents? Why does Spanish have accents? Did the Arabs do that to us too, after the pricks invented algebra? Occasionally I ponder the imponderable like, why are there Republicans?

I like chocolate.

I do. Really! Most people do. They, the ubiquitous and omnipotent they, have conducted studies that indicate chocolate is good for us, but not for dogs, and unlike Brussels sprouts makes us happy. Makes me happy.

musings from Juan, an erudite marihuano

...guy says, "I speak English, sorta." I nod. "An' Spanish, sorta," he continues. And I nod again. "Ghetto an' Cracker too," he goes on while grinning. And I'm thinking, why'd I look this fool up?
