ALL THE NEWS FIT TO PRINT
First of all I finished another book and half way thru another one...Read Case of Lies by Perri O'Shaughnessy, and if I thought the other book was loaded down on facts about dna, this one is stuffed to the fucking gills with info on math,the Riemann Hypthesis, Cramers model, Sarnak, Wiles, and Bump. It is like a foreign language...There were pages and pages of shit on shit.....I could give a roaring rats ass....Peri O'Shaughnessy is a writing team of two sisters and usually I love their books, and this one was a good book but there was more info on calculus that I ever ever ever wanted to know...I didn't like math when I was a kid, and like it even less now...so reading about it in a mystery book was enough to make me want to stab someone in the eye with a sharp #2 pencil. Fuckme till x+y = 69.
Reading Iron Orchard by Stuart Woods and half way through it and not one damn math reference...thank the Goddess. I really like this one....okay..now to the haps in West.
Good news ....the trade days activities will not be lost to West, even though we lost the space(supposed to have been bought by Dollar General, but Robert(long time friend, and old drinking buddy) who is the manager of the Dollar General said they didn't buy it..so wtf???? anyhow we will have the trade days somewhere.

The Wayward Sons are playing At Mynar's Bar. This bar has been open for ever...I used to go in there and play domino's and drink beer with the old farts..I was about 40 and skinny with big tits and I could beat them all the time cause they were so busy looking at my tits....now that I think of it... I may not have been near as good at pool as I thought, they were probably just looking at my tits too.......damn....
