the neighbourhood seen

solved problems; pen and ink on paper (page from an old math text book).

Took Oona for an earlier-than-usual walk this morning, just to exorcise some sillies and get some missing milk (Daddy needs his cereal). We made a big loop out of it. About two blocks away I noticed that someone had (very helpfully) amended a stop sign; underneath where it says "STOP", it also now says "Hammertime".

The milk we found at our local Mac's. When we went in, I noticed that the manager was training a new employee. Then I remembered that this same store was robbed at knife-point last week.

I bought 2%. It helps me maintain my girlish figure.

There's some kind of 'green' store opening up in our neighbourhood, the kind of everything-green store where everything is good for you and environmentally friendly and crafted by unexploited pygmy cripples with rain-washed bamboo and nails made out of kisses. C was all excited when she heard this and thinks it will do a booming trade. I don't. My own evidence comes solely from the fact that, while looking at the window displays from across the street, I almost tripped over the curled, bloated corpse of a dead raccoon.

    peple like the idea of shopping "green" but when the amount at the til is three times what you would normally pay, reconcilling a philosophical belief system and the bankbook don't alway even out.

  2. That line "nails made out of kisses" will be lodged in my head for a long time.

    I really could stop for some hammertime. I find that life was more fun back in those hammer days. I'd probably shop green if there was some M.C. Hammer muzac in the background.

  4. At the "green" stores here everything is imported from California. Very "eco" of them. Or "echo," as they say here.
