  1. That is great. I will never forget the time your mom cleaned your whole framed poetry exhibit. Did your mom email this to you or write it all in a letter? k

  2. I call dibs on #49!

    Be careful with #38. It bites. Literally.

    btw, the microwave that I stole (which provided you with said "microwave box" of goods) ... it was totally not worth stealing it. By the time I drove from Alaska to Florida, it was completely obsolete. Next time I'm gonna steal a pencil sharpener or somethin' else obsolete proof.

  3. Are you for real? Did that microwave box really come from you? And you stole it? Hoho. This kind of thing reminds me just how long we've known each other. Camping in the keys, living under the stairs, listening to the Stooges while, urm, altered. Unforgettable stuff!

    Email me your mailing address and the Rimbaud book is yours.

  4. Hey K, is that Dr. K or not? My mom emailed this to me. I still have about 7 boxes of books in her garage. I imagine she wrote this all ona piece of paper then typed it into an email. Quite a lengthy process. I don't have the heart to tell her that all but a few of these books are keepers. She can put 'em in the attic!

    Funny is that this this pretty much touches on or sums up my main centers of interest over the last 25 years. I can safely say that if this list were all that remained of my "intellectual" (ahem) life, it would be a fair and accurate summation.

    And yeah, when she repackaged the poetry stuff in plastic to lose the weight of the glass! I was livid. Now I chuckle but not entirely without some (petty) lingering rancor!

    Any books you want, btw? Free for you and Gid only!

  6. It's a good list...she didn't happen to find my old vinyl did she?? I think I have a few records, including a Duran Duran picture disc in that garage!! Hope your mom is well.

  7. You should give her a call and find out. She'd be happy to be rid of it! Duran Duran! Emblem of my adolescence.

    Tell us, are you involved in rescuing wildlife from the Gulf? What's your view of things like.

    I'm gutted, as I'm sure The Gid is. He's a real Florida cracker, unlike us first-generation transplants....
