beetle juice

just got back from my junk walk..
where i narrowly missed getting squashed by a silver beetle.
um...yeah....the car kind.

the weird thing is (and don't tell chuck or my mom),
i almost got a rush from it.
and as if that wasn't enough to fruck with my mind, kate bush's 'pull out the pin' was playing on my ipod at the time- lyrics here.

i think i'll refrain from using the chop saw today..

and they always say accidents tend to happen less than 3 miles from home. well, this near accident only happened a block from home...which leads me to believe i was 'dying' to get home! har har..

"Hey coach, I don't think we survived that crash"
I heard about the accidents within 3 miles of home, that's why we moved.

Re: "Hey coach, I don't think we survived that crash"
It's one of my favorite quotes from Beetlejuice, when the football team crashes and don't know they're dead until they ask to use the bathroom.

rock and roll death
nothing like a dramatic and unusual death g.
when you feel that feeling, sit down away from the road.

Did you have that iPod set to eleven again?
Sheesh, how many times do I have to tell you? ;-)

You be careful of yourself, you are a big art star in Portland! No chop saws!
Jul. 14th, 2006 03:28 am (UTC)
hee heeeeeee.
well then, i'll just have to wear my coke bottle thick safety goggles and michelin man jump suit to prevent any possible chop saw mishaps.....

now THAT'S an ARTSTAR.....oh yeah, baby....lookin' goooooooooood. ;D

beerded clams
Beware, the Silver Bullet--nothing to do with too many beers. Damn marketers got a hold on it all. A protracted engagement. In an elliptical, 'round about way, Big Brother is a watchin'. I see why you've taken to all lower-case. It's a good thing.

Re: beerded clams
yah..i abandoned capital letters sometime in the late 90's....reserving them only for official letters-resumes, and the like. i figured if e.e. cummings did it, why can't i? ;D and it saves me the trouble of reaching for that damn 'shift' key!

And you thought ART was safe.
Jul. 14th, 2006 04:08 pm (UTC)
heh....i'd be MUCH safer up in the air with you...and i suppose i could collect all the used up sporks and napkins and make SOMEthing out of it?
