walk a mile in my shoes

Doing puhlenty of nothing, unless u count reading magazines and eating granola as doing something. The clock keeps changing tho;time should stop when we arent doing anything. And speaking of clocks, have i mentioned that it hasnt been 4:20 around here in over 3 months? Small potatoes, but my potatoes. Where is that quote from anyway? Ah, who can remember the sources for all the quotes that pop up.
Dave Mahoney was a great one for using quotes and once when we were all hanging out, somebody, i cant remember who, got annoyed and said "you people r just non-sequitur after non-sequitur" and they left the room.
And speaking of leaving the room and quotes,  R and myself were hanging out at Hamburger Mary's south of Market when a bunch of guys at a table near us apparently annoyed one of their pals, who got up and left, kind of in a huff. And one of the guys at the table said to the others, "Well! SHE'S gone." R and I still use that quote. You'd be surprised how useful it is. And it's always funny too. Well, funny if u r into non-sequiturs i guess.
And how YOU doin'?

"Small potatoes, but my potatoes," is from a most excellent Sidney Lumet movie, "Just Tell Me What You Want" starring Alan King in a story loosely based on Steve Ross (the guy who built Time-Warner) and starring Ali McGraw and Myrna Loy in her last screen appearance. The screenplay was by the very talented Jay Presson Allen. She (The "Jay" stands for Jacqueline) was a real character and also wrote Marnie, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, The Verdict, and Prince of the City.

I believe the person who said "you people r just non-sequitur after non-sequitur" was actor Joe Barrett (now a well-known audiobook narrator).

We just watched Bonnie and Clyde again and kept thinking of Dave and the quotes he snatched from that one. I will try to pass the JB name on to Joe.
