And You Used to be So Sweet I Heard You Say

Here is a picture of two corn cribs, in case you're not from a farm state and didn't know what they looked like.

Tonight I went to my friend A.'s house and and visited with her and my other friend G. It's St Patrick's Day, on a Saturday and I didn't drink one drop of alcohol. How odd. I think this post would be way more entertaining for you and embarrassing for me, if I had.

It's late and I'm tired, so this will be mercifully short. You know how lately things have been breaking down in my life, and people keep fixing them for free and another friend offered to try and help me out with Cubs tickets? Do you think all of that is because I live in Iowa and people here are just that nice, or do you think I was really fucking awesome in another life, and I'm finally getting my karmic props?

The last time I heard of George he was sweeping the streets as part of a community service order.
I have seen him sing live in a small piano bar and he was surprisingly good

that is too funny. I laugh and shake my head when someone does something for me because I find myself thinking "why, what did I do for them?" and then I realize, there are good people out there and good friends who will help out merely for that reason, because they care. I like the corn cribs. My college was set in the middle of corn fields in the midwest and it was awesome.

I think it's because you're pretty fucking awesome in this life and people like to do things for people they like.
The pic appeals to me, probably 'cause I live in East Bumfuck farm country. ;-)

I think your just really fucking awesome in this life. And yes you live in Iowa - that helps.
by the way I didn't even see anyone in green yesterday - nice! (stayed in with a feverish 6 year old so hermitizing probably helped me avoid St. Pats)

Les Quinn,

He does have a nice voice, he just needs to get off the smack.

Stepping Over the Junk,

I think you're right. There are just really nice people in my town and that's probably why I still live in Iowa.

Where did you go to college?


Thanks. That's so nice of you to say.

Corn cribs kick ass, don't they?


Thanks. I think I owe you most of all and you don't even live in Iowa right now.

I'm sorry your boy is sick, but I'm glad you didn't have to witness any wearin' o' the green.

I grew up in a farm state. That picture reminds me of driving to Grandma and Grandpa's house.

I'm sure it's both. I love it when people are just so darned nice.

I hope that's a good memory.


Me too. It still always amazes me.
