gordonshumway I had no idea that it required soap and showers to achieve this scent. (The more you know and stuff). 14h

gordonshumway "You're going to kill me," the guy at the Volvo Service Department said as we walked across the parking lot. "The only loaner car we have right now is a 2002 sedan with 200,000 mil—"
"AND A CASSETTE PLAYER!"
"Yes...um, yes, it has a cassette player."
"THEN GIVE ME THE KEYS, JOSH. WE'RE ALL GOOD HERE."

gordonshumway 1) "That's not cool" was the best thing I could think of to say when I had to squeeze past this girl who was writing her name on the wall of Sacré-Cœur. 2) "I think it is" was the best response she could think of. 3) Scolding a 20-something for graffiti means I have fast forwarded through the rest of my 30s and am now 87 years old. 4) But really, take a picture or 10, buy a postcard, do anything other than write your own stupid name on the wall of a 140 year old church. 5) Or on the wall of any historic monument. 6) I'm pretty sure her name was Paris and she was from New Jersey. 7) I'm trying not to let either of those things make me hate her even more. 8) All of you covet my windbreaker right now. 9) And my Clash pin. 10) No, I have never been cool either. Carry on. 2w

gordonshumway This time tomorrow, I will probably be crammed into the one economy class seat without a working headphone jack, sitting beside a shrieking infant and a man who will start clipping his toenails somewhere over Greenland... and I cannot wait. 3w

gordonshumway Apparently the waters of Lake Minnetonka flow all the way to Statesville, NC. Made a 90 mile round trip to see this Prince mural before the city paints over it, which was time and unleaded gasoline well-spent. (Also, driving from my garage to Prince's motorcycle was exactly the length of the Purple Rain album). 3w
