so much for my morning sun

New construction across the street. It took about two hours to put on the upper floors.

obama's speech

That Britney Spears has paid some dues lately. I think America is ready for her take on "Strange Fruit."

happy st. patty's

saturday night, 12:47am, slipper room

Whitney brought a tumbler full of maraschino cherries from the bar. It had been years since I’d eaten one and the taste brought back the Jockey Club and Albuquerque. I was bussing tables and hanging out with a girl named Lesa and between the rushes we’d have nothing to do but sit and eat maraschinos. There’s the old salacious line about a girl being able to tie a knot in a cherry stem with her tongue and Lesa could actually do it. But then I tried with a couple of the stems from Whitney’s tumbler and it was completely impossible. I felt like I’d been had.

jersey roadtrip/burying the lede

The highlight of the ride was watching a pregnant Yumee assaulting the van of the asshole delivery driver who blocked us in.

ask an odeon waiter part 2

AE reports that during the Macbeth run, Patrick Stewart has been pretty much a regular at Odeon. Mr. Stewart is friendly, courteous, and a good tipper. (This in contrast to AE's stories of the worst customer ever.) I find it somehow a reassurance of the world's order that Picard is a good sort. AE was kind enough to indulge a fetish by giving me one of Picard's tabs and the actual waiter scratch sheet that went with it. This will be up on eBay next week.
