- Youre a great host.
Youre a tedious parasite.

- Admiring Masterpieces
- Carlos dragged me to the Museum of Modern [sic] Art, and Im glad he did. I didnt like the exhibit, but I did appreciate a docents remark.
Stop talking! the guide shouted, These masterpieces arent going to admire themselves!
Im sure theres more one should know about art, but I cant think what it might be at the moment.

- Still No Cure for Right-handedness
- I read that Karl Merk, a German farmer, is the first person in the world to receive a double arm transplant. Thats what the story said, but it was actually two single arms, not a double arm.
The report was also disappointing in that the doctors attached the right and left arms to Merks right and left side, respectively. Had they done it the other way around, Edgar Biemer and Christoph Hoehnke might have gone down as the the surgeons who developed a cure for right-handedness.

- Making Stuff Up and Writing It Down
- Herbert asked me what I put in this notebook on days when nothing happened. I explained that I make up the name of a fictitious friend then cite some event that never happened. Making stuff up and writing it down.
Ah, like today then? asked Herbert.
Exactly like today, I agreed.

- Why My Head Doesnt Explode
- Wilma asked me if I was worried after reading a new study suggesting that alcohol shrinks the brain. I explained that not only was I aware of the phenomenon, but I welcomed it. Since I lead such a rich life, my brain is constantly expanding. Were it not for the occasional tipple, my head would explode.

- Mediocre Circular Photographs
- I saw some mediocre photographs today, but they werent as mediocre as they might have been since they were circular instead of the usual rectangle. Ive been thinking about this phenomenon, and am considering cropping some of my less successful work to a variety of different geometric formats.

- You Could Be One of Them
- I received a press release from McBride Fine Art extolling the virtues of Mona Breedes photographs. Her work wasnt very interesting, but the last sentence in the press release was.
There is not more to be known, but you could be one of them.
Now thats something to think about, although Im not sure what.
