I meant to show you this a while back...

It's the watch I got for 330 Coke Rewards! Remember? Pretty snazzy, don't you think?

I'm in Queens and getting ready to take on tomorrow. I'm sleepy having filled up on brick oven pizza. My co-worker, D, and I road the bus to Forest Hills and spent a happy few hours wandering through the shops. We did find some post cards for our other co-worker, who has a quest to find the world's worst post cards:
I also found an Obama button, which I'm not 100% sure came from campaign central, but, hey, I can't get my hands on anything with his name on it for love nor money, so I'll take what I can get.
Besides, the back has a real, honest to God safety pin, so you know it's pure:
Well, kids, I'm off to bed. I'm going to finish reading this wacky book called The Matchmaker of Perigord, which has such delightful phrasings as:
Picking up the fork, the barber selected a piece of plump sausage for his first mouthful. But, as he went to spear it, he suddenly stopped and stared blankly for several minutes. Then, very slowly, he put down the empty fork. As he sat back, a warm fat tear slid down his corow's-feet, shot over a tiny scar, rattled over his stubble and came to an abrupt halt at the bottom of his chin where it hung quivering.
Lovely, isn't it?
In closing, I leave you with a kiss goodnight and a horse's patoot:

And, heck, how about a giraffe's patoot to seal the deal?

Peace out and more tomorrow!


  1. There is no shortage of "Jackalope" post cards out here in the west. Want me to send you some?

  2. You have all the adventures while I toil away here at home. I hope you are having fun and have lots of good stories to tell.

    I hope that is the only horse's ass you meet on this trip.


  3. Dude, you're not procrastinating...I haven't found the postcard yet for our coworker. Still looking, but I've got plenty of fodder to choose from. Greetings from Philly!

  4. I dunno-- I've seen far, FAR worse postcards than those. You may have to go to a special collection online for THAT. Either that, or a flea market.

    Travel on home safe, and keep us posted re: the adventures!!

  5. Are you still there just shopping your way through or what?

  6. SD: I'd love one!

    Doc: It was the only one...

    Ergo: More's coming!

    Dale: I'm done shopping and I have a grand post coming...

    CP: New York without you is like a day without sunshine. It will never be the same again.
