Great Expectations

i read a lot while i was growing up, and while i was growing up i read a lot of science fiction .... this was the classical period, with the all-time great sci-fi writers: silverberg and sheckley; bradbury, pohl, and asimov; mathesson and heinlein; bester and bloch, on and on and on .... it was a wonderful time and a wonderful time to be reading forays into the future; i lived in a world that was fraught with possibility and promise while reading about worlds of promise and possibilities .....

it sucks being back, but it's nice to have one's absence noted ....

i've been away a long time; did you miss me?

i didn't and don't want to come back; what's to come back to? the mouldy cookie crumbs of civilization? a lunar and lunatic political landscape, one without atmosphere? i don't want to tell you where i was or what i was doing because i'd burst into tears and become incapacitated but .... the bicycling was great .... and there weren't any cars .....

Summer Daze

he heat wave broke a week ago, but it still smells like the foyer to the inferno, thanks to the more than eight hundred fires that started in a lightning storm .... a lightning storm? in california? i think of lightning as an east coast or midwest phenomenon, along with humidity and lightning bugs .... i didn't register the lightning storm, but something hit a tree down the street from me, setting it on fire, and i don't think it was osama yo mama ..... he's kicking back, with his dialysis machine, in the hyderabad hilton, driving room service crazy .....

dear diary:

it was really hot last week, with the temperature hitting and holding in the high 90s .... i'm not a happy hot weather person; maybe i got it out of my system, growing up in pakistan, where it rained two days a year, where water rationing had teeth, and i always marvelled at the refugee camps that stretched for endless miles across a flat and featureless plain, not a tree in sight forever and beyond, the people living in skin-covered half domes that must have been all of five feet high, and the temperature hitting 114 and up ......

barack obama is now the demoratic nominee .... yawn .... and bo diddley has died .....

i'm more affected by bo diddley's death than this denouement of the democratic diddle and piddle that's had the "media" going crazy over obama's pastors--but not the republicans' jew-hating-armageddon-loving-psychotic-delusional-fat-greasy-toupeed-suckers-of-satan's-cock-pastors; the headlines questioning obama's "patriotism" (no--gasp!--flag pin on his lapel!); opining that low bowling scores might make him an elitist, and .....

our sense of humor, of what's funny, has changed drastically in a few short decades; if you're familiar with richard pryor, you'll know what i'm talking about--you'll know that there was more to the making of humor, of creating laughter against a background of insight, than providing an internet link to youtube .... do you ever get tired of people forwarding you an endless stream of shit that's supposed to be funny?

Keeping Abreast of Things

it was really hot last week, the kind of heat you'd expect to find on the lowest level of the inferno, the level that's below child molesters, advertising executives, and oil company ceo's; the level that's below mass murderers, torturers; the level that's below republicans and .... oh .... ha ha .....

those are all republicans, aren't they?

Oh! Mama!

i took the boys to school this mother's day week .... their mother had commitments on the day the preschool observed mother's day, so i filled in .... not that there's anything unusual about my taking the boys to school; i've been doing it since they started their preschool last september ... did i tell you that one year of preschool, for one boy, costs more than my entire stanford undergraduate career? oh, it's likely that they're learning more at preschool than i did at stanford, but still ....
