Mister with a lady friend at SF Gay Day. I cant call it 'pride', i dont like 'pride'.
Other words that r hard for me to say: "asshole", and "panties". I'm not sure i've ever even said the word "panties", unless it was to say "Dont get your panties in a bunch."
No tour or shows or anything...2busy eating all the donuts that were sposed to be for company.

I hope u havent seen this yet. Pretty sure it's not cgi.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy looking for funny pix of why i'm 2busy but cant find any after looking for about an hour jeez if u only knew how long i spend on some of these blog entries.
R gave a brilliant talk to a packed house at the Sunnyvale Library last night. Kate, the librarian told me before the talk that she was "so excited to meet a celebrity" and afterwards she pronounced Rich "phenomenal". As usual, he got quite a few laffs and as usual, he didnt hear them, i always tell him afterwards what happened.
One huge laff was for his comment that it was a "miracle" that Microsoft won a lawsuit over their use of 'Word'. And when he brought up a shot of the first iPod and said "remember this?", that got another huge laff. All the laffs were egghead laffs like that, it was pretty cute what this crowd thought was funny.
U go Rich, u little brainiac u.

I like covers, my own, other people's, but...not exactly sure how i feel about this one.
Found it here, where i check in regularly 2look4 Kurt Gottschalk.
I think i had bad dreams last night after watching I Am Legend. Not like i am a Will Smith fan or anything, but his character has a German shepherd sidekick. Ask me about the time i scared some gangbangers with 'my' GS.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy kisskissbangbang.

It was this: While driving on the Golden Gate Bridge i saw several monks in their saffron robes standing on the pedestrian walkway holding up iPads to take pix of the view and each other. I wish Steve could have seen this sight, it was kind of powerful with the 3 iconic images happening all at once. The monks were smiling and their saffron robes were flapping in the wind. It was a sunny day and the sky was bright blue.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy hallucinating.

In the relaxing final asana during yoga practice today I moved ever so slightly and felt like i was falling off my mat, down down down like the falling figure in the opening Mad Men credits. I even heard the bass line from the theme song.
And speaking of falling thru the cracks, has ANYBODY ever heard of Velvett Fogg, ever? Probably Craig Leon has something 2 say about them. U can mention the most obscure band to him and he'll have a wacky story to tell about them. "Oh, yeah, I made a record with them in a basement somewhere. After their hit single, they pooled all their royalty money and bought a snail farm."
And speaking of wacky, this guy i know wants 2 open a foodtruck. Here's your #1 menu item, bro.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy with post-yoga stretches.

This was the view from 3 of the suites at the former headquarters of MY NON TOUR DIARY.
Day and night, looking south all along the Pacific Coast Hwy toward Pedro Point was a treat.
Let's get in the car and head that way now.
Keep going past Pacifica to Half Moon Bay. The green field u just looked at is a huge pumpkin patch in the fall. It's a pretty exciting image, punkins up above the sea like that.
U can get a dynamite organic vegetarian lunch at Chez Shea then bike off the calories on a path that goes for a few miles along the beach.
Ok, did that, time to head back and do all the dumb stuff i gotta do.
And how YOU doin'?

1/2 hour bike ride to Mill Valley, lock bike near the library, walk up the Dipsea steps and on up Panoramic Hwy to 4 Corners. Walk back down, a 1.5 hr. round trip walk. Trip walk, what's that? Dont know but i like it. Came thisclose to a little deer, I could have reached out and touched it. Can never remember.. when sharing space with wildlife, r u supposed to back away, or dont turn your back? And do we look at them, or make no eye contact at all?
A man was jogging down the steps but stopped to pick up a worm. He deposited it eversogently into the greenery and said "I save worms."
1/2 hr. bike ride back. And how YOU doin'?

No tour or shows or anything...2busy putting finishing touches on artwork for completed cover project.
