parker, i hardly know her ....

[phone wakes me at 12:18 p.m.]
jcrew: CAN YOU GET A TICKET FOR EXPIRED TABS IF YOU'RE PARKED ON THE STREET?!
[jcrew's ... um, exhuberence in the morning always, um ... stuns me. i can't screech until at least 6 p.m., but it isn't even convincing until after 10 p.m. she manages to have her blood pressure measure on the richter scale before i've celebrated my first void of the morning.
me: yes. yes, you can get a ticket for expired tabs if you're parked on the street.
jcrew: SON OF A BITCH!
me: yeah. i gotta go.

chuck: she's from proctor. why doesn't she park on the lawn?
me: easy, west duluth ...

note that most people don't consider 12:18 p.m. to be "morning."

Thanks. Still feel like birdgoop.

I just d'led the 1st season of Veronica. Loved the 1st 3 I watched. I guess I'm late to the party. Too late? Maybe not.

After all, I did save Jericho. Singlehandedly. I'll see what I can do about Veronica. Loves me some Kristin Bell ever since Spartan.

Ahhh...so you're "that friend" too, huh? I'm the one people call for random information...why? I haven't quite figured that out yet.

actually, tickets are within my knowledge base, as i owe the city of duluth well-more than the price of a pretty decent week-long trip.

I've been blessed with my share of tickets from expired tags. But it's just so damn hard to get to the courthouse in the month or two or three that they give you to update. Especially when you have to put on pants.
