Rabbit rabbit, baby. It's month 10! Oh my. What to do? At the other end of this month, we can dress up and go begging for candy. What fun it is to ride and sing! I'm under attack. I hope my immune system can fight back. What the hell is that all about? It's hard not to think of death when one hits a certain age. Until then, life seems to be eternal. It's not fun to think of your own mortality. I'm a mortal. I've been here for nine months so far this year. Three more to go, dude.

"LHM," said the man, "and I don't mean Left Handed Mary."

"Then, what do you mean?" asked his coworker.

"Lard, have Merry!" was the reply.

It's one of those LHM days. It will all be okay. I promise. It always is. I will be back here tomorrow to write another 100 words. That is, if the good Lard is willing.

I'm in the mood for Chipotle. What is it about that place? I think they have crack as one of the magic ingredients. It's just too good. Broke the law.

I want you should have a good day. Okay, thanks.

The tide is high but I'm holding on. The king tide is threatening to bury us all under a wave of water. It's going to happen. "They" originally said 40 to 50 years from now. Then "they" changed to 30 years from now. And now, with the king tide, we think it's happening right now. Some will die by fire and some by water. That's a deep thought, eh? Things can only get better. It will all be all right. I'll be back tomorrow, if Gd wills it to be so. That's the way I like it. Uh huh, dude.

A mass shooting every day. That's the way of the world. Ooh baby, it's a wild world. I'll always remember you like a child, girl. Time to hit the Starbucks, I need some java, Joe! Let it snow. Uh oh, people were complaining about the heat. Now come the complaints about the cold. That's the way I like it, uh huh. So, what else is new? There's a new world odor. I can smell it. And then there's Maude. That uncompromising, enterprising, anything but. What are the rest of the lyrics? My mind just went on vacation. The memory gone.

Catchup, soup, puree, don't get left behind. I always so don't get right behind. Are you cracking me to pieces? Yes, that's the way of the world. What's the crack? That's a good one. Where do you go, my lovely? I want something with lemon. I have an urge. I'm feeling very citrus. How did that happen? I adore the scent of orange blossoms. They're que rico, eh? It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Won't you be my neighbor? Another 100 words vomited onto the Internet. That's a wrap. Over and out, I'm gone. Have a good one, dude.

Obscure reference here and then an explanation. That's how to do the 100 words right. There's really no right nor wrong. It's just a matter of coming to this empty box and filling it with 100 words. No more, no less. I do it day after day. It's a routine that I find a certain comfort in performing. I'm performing an exercise. The is a social exercise, don't you know. That's why the east coast is drowning while the west coast burns. That's the way of the world. It's always the same. The more things change, the more they're same.

You'd think that I'd go back and read an entry after I'm done creating it. But no, it's just there for posterity, stuck on a page on the Internet as long as it's being served. Are you being served? Would you like fries with that? Will there be anything else? What are you doing this weekend? Who wants to know? Want to piece of me? Are there any more questions? That's enough of that, man. It's time to get some coffee. That's a good idea. Who dreamed up that concoction? It works. That's for sure. It's bitter and sweet, eh?

Once upon a time, there was a boy who thought it would be nice to go outside and do something beautiful. Make beautiful things. Observe beautiful things. Do it all. Have it all. There's a reason for the season. It's to be beautiful. Are you beautiful? Don't hate me because I'm beautiful. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Won't you be my neighbor? You're a thing of beauty and a joy to behold. There's a lot of love here. Can you feel it? The burn and the beauty of the beholder. That's a sentence with no meaning. Words, darling.

It's Friday! Gotta get down on Friday. Party! Dude. That's what it's all about. Today's a shrimp day. I'm loving on the shrimps. And we haven't eaten them for awhile. So we're going to eat the cockroaches of the ocean. Why are they so darn delicious? It's the way we are conditioned. If you stop and think about it, they're really gross. Any time we eat another being, it's murder. Meat is murder. Pass the hamburg. It's okay. I don't mind eating it if it's all ground up! Just give me a juicy cheeseburger. That's the way, uh huh, yeah.

OMG, I just found out that flickr will upload your entire photo library! That's just cray. They want to host it in the cloud so once it's there you will pay to keep it. Too bad I'm not that dependent on the cloud. I love that things are out there and supposedly safe. It's a great idea. Where are these hard drives located? Probably in Taiwan or made in Japan. China would be a good guess. I'm in a mood and it's Saturday and I'm supposed to be in a good mood. Maybe a mother's little helper will do it.

Today could be your lucky day. It's a day to buy plants and plant them. The community garden awaits! I heard a story on NPR and they said there have been one billion Twitter users but only 300 million have stayed. Only? I tweet. Do you? I love the twitters. I like everything Internet. I never figured out how to monetize the stupid thing. Oh well, these are the breaks. If you like to talk for hours, just go ahead. And if you like to bring me flowers, just go ahead. Just don't be a gigantic douche bag, okay? Sweet!

Another Monday, oy. Mondays are bad when you're working. When you don't work, they be just like any other day. But there's a certain cruelty about having to go back to work after having two glorious days to do whatever. I'm sort of glad that I'm only working four days and only five hours of those days. I couldn't work full time. I'm not cut out for it. I have to awfulize about any old thing. It's in my nature. This weekend I was thinking about getting something done. I told my boss as soon as I got to work.

Eight days a week, I love you. Why drink Bud Dry? I don't know, because it's there? What's for dinner? We'll be eating a bird again. I want to be vegan. Is that so wrong? Or at least vegetarian, that's not a bad idea. There's just not enough love in the world. One is too many and 1000 is not enough. I'm there again. One minute, BRB. That's the mantra for the next end of the year. Here comes that end of the year slide. It's your turn. One hour before we go to the next level. It's on. That's.

Papa was a rolling stone. Actually, he listened to country music to make us crazy. It worked. We read the Rolling Stone magazine. Wasn't it a newspaper back then? Everything old is new again. I'm so far behind. The hurrier I go, the behinder I get. Hurrier is a word, but behinder isn't. Go know. That's a good one. See you in heaven. Where do all dogs go? The same place as cats; isn't that the truth? I can write 100 words exactly. No more, no less. That's easy. It's making sense of them that's difficult. I'm having a problem.

Halfway through the month and at the end we will have a holiday. Why couldn't the witch have babies? Because her husband had a Hollow Ween. I'm dancing as fast as I can.

Did you know that 17 is the most commonly chosen number between 1 and 20. If you tell folks to pick a number randomly between 1 and 20, the majority will choose number 17. It's a statistical fact. Go figure. Now you know. You can carry on. That was such a relief. I'm glad you told me. I had no idea. Now I can go forward. Go know. That's disgusting! I've had enough of that for now, missy.

Oh well, this is a reminder to appreciate people no matter what because someday they will be gone and you will only have the memory to appreciate. I appreciate all the good things around me.

Soon it will be Halloween. I haven't given one minute of thought to the way I will dress October 31. Every year, I walk along Lincoln Road with the sister of HRS. She is now officially my SIL. Oh yeah, our one year anniversary is coming up! Go figure. We went to NYC a year ago and got ourselves hitched after living together nearly 35 years without the benefit of a legal recognition. Finally, in the beginning of the 21st century, we were recognized. It was such a big deal! We were married by an African American woman. Go know!

Is it hump day if you only have one more day of your work week? Not really. I don't have a hump day because I only work four days and, of those four days, I only work part time. I'm working five hours a day four days a week. It's more than enough! Plus, I'm making so little that I don't care when things get done. The urgency is gone. It took a lot to kill that feeling but once I realized that the people around me couldn't really care much about getting the agenda moved along, it was easy.

Food is a good subject. Why do we eat the same things over and over and over? And why do certain things make us salivate no matter how many times we have eaten them in the past? I'm averse to animal flesh but I still consume it. I should have been a vegan, but it's too late. I got my awareness very late in life and by then I had already eaten many different animals. I'm sorry for eating them. That's the way I was raised. And I love me some ground cow. That's my favorite way to eat animals.

These 100 words a day are wearing me out. I think I have to quit. I have been doing this for a few years and it's helped me. At first, it was very helpful and now it's just an exercise that makes me write 100 words at a time. There's another website where I've been writing for more than 1000 days and that's called 750 words dot com. There I have to write 750 words every day. If I don't write them during the 24 hours that comprise one day, I lose the chance and it's gone forever. Not here.

Once in awhile, it wouldn't kill you to . . . Those were some famous words. I can hear Mom saying them right now. I think even Dad would mouth them once in awhile. Those were the days, my friend. And now, I say the same things that Mom and Dad used to say. That's the way of the world. You know it's true.

We have to buy an organic bird. Or maybe this is the year we only eat vegetables and pardon the bird. Or maybe we go with fish. How about a nice roast?
