    When I contemplate current world affairs, I can't help feeling like my brain is dancing towards oblivion.

    It will be a long, bumpy ride in an oversold coach compartment. I am in the seat next to you and have ordered the new sequel to Kubrick's classic, "Dr. Strangehair (How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Boob)". Want to watch it with me?

    How to Start Worrying and Stop Living [obviously not Norman Vincent Peale's book] might be a good recommendation for someone who started a thread about hating oneself.

    I will bring the Stolichnaya and hope the San Diego Bageler is not on board and destroying the WC.

    A good thing about living in California is that NFL football starts at ten in the morning on Sundays.

    Last night I dreamed that I was on a Maui beach and a naked Lucie Šafářová ran up to me, and whispered into my ear that someone is trying to kill me and I must come to Brno with her to be safe. It was a very strange dream.

    I had too many pints of Guinness at a pub last night, and mentioned to a friend that I met Noel and Liam Gallagher at the Viper room at a birthday party for Kate Moss. Kate was off her **** on something and had far away eyes, Johnny Depp was very direct and nice, Liam was high on cocaine, and Noel was polite. My friend said Oasis was a crap band, and I argued their first two albums were very good. What is the legacy of Oasis?

    I am very concerned that North Korea is going to do something very dangerous and crazy.

    Must call in fellow brewski enthusiast @meltphace 6 for a review of my new discovery at the package store.

    Got a bit frustrated with the local hops distributor to abruptly stop stocking my fallback 4-pack pint cans of Mother's Milk Yuengling Traditional Amber Lager so I walked over to the liquor store and found a nice alternative buy...a 6-pack of .5liter cans of Heninger HB premium lager for $2 off ($6.99). I'm having the first as I poast and it is quite tasty!

    Ever had it???

    Never even heard of this brewery until now. I'll try to find it next time I'm in Germany.

    Zum Wohl!

    On topic: it's a three hours train ride from Basel to Frankfurt am Main. Been there, done that.

    Nostradamus predicted, “Tomorrow, at sunrise, I shall no longer be here.”

    Of course, he got it right this time.

    Haha, Nostradamus and Magellan must be having a great time together drinking wine. As for TTW's very own--I don't know--he must be roaming around his alma mater [standing beside his Ford Mustang] in CA.;)

    Yeah I might give that a read at some point. I remember working nights for about 3 years, I used to read so much, and I think I kind of burnt myself out on it, but since I switched to working days back in June, I'm feeling the desire to find a decent book after it's been a while.

    These past 24 hours I've been given a stolen tablet I'm giving to my girlfriend, lost my jacket with my headphones, and have been working like a mofo for a pittance.

    I miss my old job.

    You were given a stolen tablet that you are giving to your girlfriend? This seems like a bad idea from an ethical view, and also because it is easily traceable and could present her with legal problems.

    I dreamed I was in a desolate part of San Francisco, with a few warehouses, vacant lots, and a Russian restaurant. The restaurant's door was locked, so I sat on a bench outside and waited for it to open.

    There were many dangerous-looking people around, and as I became concerned about my safety, Maria Kirilenko came out of the restaurant. She sat next to me and said, "The restaurant is closed today. It's dangerous here, so let's have lunch at the Fairmont." A limo pulled up, we got in, and took seats next to each other.

    This is when you received a sharp Danish elbow blow to your side and you were booted to the couch for the remainder of the night by mrs mikeb. Her parting words were, "We'll talk about your 'Maria' moaning in the morning!"

    I just turned my computer on and was gobsmacked by the image showed on it. Would love to visit that place one day. I found the name of the place by using image search. Puente Nuevo, Ronda, Spain. I just remembered I saw a documentary about it on TV last year. Very friendly local people there. They have a folk music group that go around the town entertaining people.

    I use to have lucid dreams fairly often, especially when traveling, and with jet lag. A common dream was one where I was observing a city street, usually in Russia or Scandinavia, and often from a century ago. I wondered how my mind could be conjuring these images and would sometimes decide to fly to another part of town. I was dreaming, yet I was awake.
