Well, I was drinkin' last night with a biker...

Comes a time
when the blind man takes your hand
says, "Don't you see?"
got to make it somehow,
on the dreams you still believe
Don't give it up
you've got an empty cup
only love can fill
only love can fill.
--Robert Hunter

I'm kinda lost right now. I got off work tonight (now technically last night) at 9:00 pm after working the usual 12 hour shift. Working on Saturday? No big whoop. A nice Saturday night, yes: some Guinness, some R&R. Watched a movie -- Up The Creek with Tim Matheson. Lame but sometimes funny. Now it's 3 in the morning and I'd really like to start catching some Zzzzzzz's... but I ain't tired. And I even ran before work. That should've ensured I'd be ready to crash after work. Nope. I ran, I rested, I worked, I played, I rested, I slept ... that's what the order should be. Instead it's more like...

I ran, I rested, I worked, I played, I rested, I muttered...

from this meme is called: Unconscious MutteringsUnconscious Mutterings

a free association game -- I say... and you think ... ?

1. Questioning ::Police ... interrogation, GUILTY until proven Innocent... in the United States it's supposed to be the other way around... but sadly it's actually not that way at all... they'll say you're innocent until convicted but in reality you must prove your innocence. Where did America go wrong? Well, at least we still have a legal system that is more fair than half the countries in the world. Could be worse -- we could be like China or Iran.
2. Immunity ::from prosecution
3. Online dating ::What is: something people use to find a mate. I'll take 18th Century Architecture for a thousand, Alex.
4. Calcium ::milk
5. Dressing ::salad
6. Bucket ::Hell In a ... song by the Grateful Dead,
lyrics by John Barlow, music by Bob Weir,

7. Stain ::Monica Lewinsky
8. Advanced ::not beginner

10. Self-medication ::Jack Daniels

Hell In A Bucket -- 6/26/94

Sam Boyd Silver Bowl
Las Vegas, Nevada

Of all the Helena Bucket choices on youtube (only two of which are by the GD,) this one I just happened to be at!

As I remember -- June was WAY too freakin' warm for the Dead in the desert. Much better when La$ Vega$ shows were in April or May. Ideally they shoulda had 'em in like March which they did with Phoenix shows a time or two. No matter what the temperature, the kids they danced and shook their bones and a good time was had by all.

It is such a shame that we are required to prove our innocence rather than have them prove our guilt. Unfortunately it's not always possible to prove your innocence...

Nice mutterings and thanks for the taco seasoning tip!
