Another incentive to come to the show on Friday: Among the merchandise for sale will be squid hats with built-in tentacle-scarves, or tentascarves. Available in Medium (my head), Large, (Ben’s head), and Bigfoot – OK, Extra-Large (the head of a dear friend of mine who plays the viola).

Custom squid hat orders will be taken – just send the circumference of your head just above your eyebrows and $20 to my Paypal account. Testimonials will follow.

I believe there may be some kind of “Haikus for Cthulhu” contest announced soon – I will announce details as they arise.

Until then, be patient.

But if you live in the Toronto area and are free tonight, you can see my legs in real life!

I’m playing a set of cabaret/lounge stuff at the Tranzac tonight at 7:30…just me singing and playing the piano.  Come listen and have a beer!

It passed unnoticed.  I forgot entirely.  It was on July 27, 2008 that I started this blog.  I’m not going to go all sentimental and write “What I’ve learned from blogging” or anything like that, but I thought I should note it nevertheless.

So I will invent a self-indulgent blog meme.

Search the following words on your blog:
– plural
– pride
– goo
– basset hound
– excellent

Pick one random sentence from one of the posts dredged up by the keywords, and link it back to the original post.

Then you should tag people, but I probably won’t do that.

Here we go:

Plural:

…when you try a creepy line on a woman and she turns you down, it isn’t necessarily because she’s a cold-hearted bitch… (link)

Pride:

He doesn’t understand birthdays, of course, and has celebrated his mainly by sleeping through it… (link)

Goo:

…taking peoples’ booze away in this situation is just asking for revolution… (link)

Basset Hound:

Tags which actively decrease blog traffic: aww, criticism, jesus, lazy, meta, opera –
market research is *EVERYTHING*. (link)

Excellent:

…if they do strike…moonshine may be the only way…(link)

OK, enough, enough.  If anyone is still reading this, let me be mushy for a moment and thank you for allowing me to become part of your brain for just a little while.  It’s been fun.  Not that I’m stopping or anything – I plan on continuing to blog until telepathy evolves.

Onwards.

I just posted this to Facebook as well.  I discovered the source of the mysterious noise my bike was making last night.  The seatpost has been bisected!

I can't believe I rode it like this.

I can't believe I rode it like this.

So now I do not have a functioning bicycle.  Here’s the problem:

– I  need a bike for work.
– But I don’t have any money to buy a new one.
– But without one I can’t work* or make money, so I need to buy a bike.
– But I don’t have any money….etc., etc., etc.

I’m hoping one of my Facebook friends will have a bike they’re not using/know someone who does, so I can at least borrow one until I get the funds together to buy a new one. If you happen to live in the Greater Toronto Area and have a bicycle you don’t need right now, please please please get in touch with me and I will be more than happy to ride it for you.  As long as you’re not very tall – I’m only 5’2″, so it has to be a short adult’s/tall child’s bike.

Or…well, there is that “Donate” button in the sidebar…

I have absolutely no clue how this happened.  Seriously, the damn bike is only a year and a bit old.  Honestly.

*OK, so I CAN work without a bike.  It is within the realms of the possible.  But it’s not easy to do my teaching rounds on foot, and the TTC doesn’t penetrate well into the areas I go to.  And I need to start postering for more students, and it’s very hard to do efficiently without a bike.
