ducks. row. hello.

am alive! was busy at work today....

got my replacement treo today (YAY!) --- turns out i have to send back the broken one within 10 days or else i will be charged $349... gee, shall i keep the busted one just to look at? eh.... no.

then, i also got Phooka's license plates!!! woo! not saying the full thing, and it's not a vanity plate, but, the plate starts out SLY***

sly.... my little sly spy car! heh. love it (my favourite was when i had MAD 31F as my plate about 4 years ago... again, not a vanity plate, but at the time i was 31 and, well, female - which i still am)

had the car loan papers notarized this morning, so those Ts and Is are crossed and dotted... whew.

what else? what else? nada... just getting the treo set up properly again and all...

how was your day, pumpkin?

by the way, i said "rabbit, rabbit" first thing this morning... so it's extra lucky since it's my birth month (see wishlist)

if you haven't rabbit rabbited today, make sure you say "tibbar, tibbar" as the last thing before you fall asleep.

Tap tap.... Is this thing on?

testing out the new treo to see if I have things set up correctly...

RRE TREO REO SPEEDWAGON (ok, no speedwagon)

always nice to see the train - that you're supposed to be on - pull up and you happen to be behind 5 cars... one in front being a cop and, oh, the one behind you being another cop... no chance of pulling an Irish Job and driving up on the sidewalk...

anyway... am staying in the city tonight (party at STOUT NYC) so I will be mistaken for a Benny with my overnight bag when I take the train home tomorrow... may as well bring a 6pack with me.

saturday I have plans to get the haircut (trim. nothing crazyassed)

also, I have to go to comcast and pick up a DVR - yep... bringing my teevee addiction to a higher level with their version of tivo... verrrry excited about this... all for an extra $9.95/month (so worth it!)

so since I missed the 7:20am train, I have to take the RRE - during the wait I was able to put phooka's heinie license on... didn't have a philip's head, so didn't bother possibly stripping the front by slapping the plate on there...

so... really cute guy 2 rows in front of me... reading La Republica (or something)... ah, dang, he just layed down in the 3 seater (i find that rude... especially when I no longer have a good view of him)

it's the RRE, so, I will most likely run into Trip and "JB" when I get to long branch... yeah I am rambling, just feeling the new keys on this replacement treo...

apparently they upgraded the software on here to v. 1.11 and there's this little blue arrow that was never there before - so it freaked me the hell out and I was on the phone with the verizon data dude at 1am about that (apparently normal) and about the fact that there's a bug in this version where when you hit phone preferences, it does a soft reboot on the frigging product.

also need to see if I can now receive txt messages. it never really worked before.

okay. gonna go try to read my book or pass out (or neither.... there's a loud yappy pair of women who've been on since point pleasant. hard to think.

quote of the day on the RRE

crazy guy who got on at Asbury Park:

"all I need is a big butt and a smile, baby"

(turning to every woman he passes by)

"smile, baby, smile!"

In the loo

at Stout nyc. tipsy. chatting up 3 guys from wales on vacay who keep hiding their left hands... eh... blokes. do they think peewee and I are idiots?

"schweet.", schee schays wif a lischp.

just got word that we have summer hours. soooooo what's that mean? it means that every other week (starting today) i can leave at 1pm (barring all my layouts are cranked out....)

June 4, 2005

about thursday night.....

really quick - since it's bloody 3:15am - here are photos from thursday night...

it starts out with folks from work... then there're a few feet photos... then there's the photos of peewee and i with the welshmen (beginning with Platehead chewing on a plate)... then there's frances and, erm, peewee, what's denzel's stalker's name? ophelia? at that point the beers/stoli vanillas/ jamesons started kicking in... (well, that stuff started kicking in around the time of the photo of me, the welsh guy rob and my tongue.)

now to sleep. must get up, go get haircut (just trimmed) at 10. then pick up the tivo.

June 5, 2005

nice day for a walk.

was supposed to play spring meadow today with carol... yesterday she called me to say cancel the teetime, she'd gotten tickets to the shop-rite lpga classic -- it's down near atlantic city. am bringing my camera.

today is absolutely gorgeous out (perfect to play golf.) she'd just gotten a king cobra 460sz men's driver. man, when we were at the range yesterday she let me hit with it and woooooooo doggie.... that is a sweet club. i want one.

shop-rite lpga tourney day

had fun. am sunburnt. am tired as sin because i was up til 4:30am yapping with a friend of mine... then woke up at 9 to head to the tourney with carol.

i am going to pass out now... in the meantime, go look at the photos i snagged (on the sly.... illllleeegally.)

towards the end of them are the davies, inkster and annika pics... annika's bodyguard, or hired thug, saw me snap a photo and ran over and said in a growly tone "put the camera away"

what? no "please"? bite me. i was rooting for inkster or davies.

sure, i get growled at, but did this guy get thrown out for being half nekkid and wearing disgusting patches on his back? no.

as the crowe flies....

hey - last night i saw Cinderella Man... i reeeeally liked it a lot. go see it.

thank you. that is all. go.

June 6, 2005

eh... as the crowe flings...

well, apparently russell saw the box office intake from this weekend

(mr. crowe, russell, russ, rusty-boy... please note that i said i liked the damned movie...)

live from the Green tea salon on 36th

at the moment I am sitting here in the massage chair getting a pedicure... nice little lunchtime treat for the feet. the fingernails are next (i figure that since my favourite "stalker" mike sent me a claddagh ring on friday - THANK YOU! - I should make the rest of my hands appear presentable.)

anyway, right now my toes are being filed... it's that horrid balance between tickling and pain.

okay so, i've been a half-hearted anorexic for 3 hours now. had a starbucks iced coffee with nonfat milk and splenda. am thinking about getting another... or fruit. let's just say that ol' GC here needs to lose the extra 12 pounds she's gained over the past month (no. not a typo.)

anyway, good lord, now they're taking those weird cuticle clippers to my tootsies.... one false tickle flinch and my piggies are done for... I can't wait for the leg massage.

yeah I am being rude by typing on here, but not for nothing, we can't understand each other anyway when speaking... and I didn't bring my book. (dont even attempt to post 'GC you're a racist in' the comments.)

ah now the sloughing massage thang is..... wait wait where'd she go..... oh got a fresh pumice stone yeowch....

about to drop the treo in the footwater. gonna post this now.

oi! watch those flipping noises!~

oh god bless whoever created the header and sub-head for this story.

fatty fatty two by four (sung. not just screamed)

okay, so i am sucking down my triple venti iced non-fat latte (with 1 packet of splenda) and for breakfast, i've purchased 2 bananas from the street fruit vendor dude (i have to get more fruit there. 2 bananas = 50 cents! i could lose weight AND save some cash on my banana/latte diet... okay, so the frigging iced coffee was effing $4.29, but whatever.)

anyway, again, i was up til 3:15am on msn messenger chatting away with my friend/client over on the west coast... think they'll notice if i pass out underneath my desk today? (of course, i just wrote him an email saying the same thing - so i am really original here... am running on fumes and shots of caffeine.)

anyway, ol' gc here's gotta shed some pounds and right quick.

oh, a huuuuuge thank you to mike for sending me those kick ass golf sandals!!!! thank you... and my perfectly pedicured feet thank you, pumpkin!

goodbye, mrs. robinson

Code red & a call for help

7:51am out of long branch. am sitting behind this red headed fella (RHF) who has the most glorious auburn coloured hair.

I saw him & sat behind him. of course, now I have some crazy lady talking non-stop on the phone behind me (chain calling) ugh.

what I need a little help with from you folks tonight is figuring out how to code and set up a form (to collect email addresses/names/phone numbers then have it sent to a database or emailed (sort of like how comments are with my blog. but I didn't write that code. and I am dog tired again... but if anyone knows this stuff, please email me ( gigglechick AT gmail DOT com )

thanks. need to crank a small project out by tonight and I am running on 7 hours sleep (since friday)

Riding the rails with my soulmate??

well I am standing outside the train at hazlet station right now.

hazlet? GC, you don't normally take the train from hazlet.... what's up?!?!

no, poppets, I don't. but I hopped on the 6:26pm outta penn station nyc thinking it'd be a relatively uneventful trip. and it was....

until....... (insert suspense music) The Announcement.

"ATTENTION PASSENGERS ATTENTION PASSENGERS WE'VE JUST BEEN INFORMED (insert heavy exasperated sigh here) TRAIN AHEAD OF US IS (insert vocal bothered equivalent of quotation marks made with hands) HAVING DIFFICULTY(end verbal hand quote) AND EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE (insert exasperated inflection) ALREADY AT THE NEXT STATION IN MIDDLETOWN, HAVE TO - FOR SOME REASON - REVERSE AND COME BACK TO HAZLET. AND (insert higher pitched angry inflection) THEN THEIR PASSENGERS ARE GOING TO GET OFF (insert heavy sigh) BUT THAT'S NOT ALL. YOU SEE (insert verbal equivalent of italics here) THEY'RE PASSENGERS (end oral italics) ARE GOING TO HAVE TO CROSS OVER TO OUR TRAIN AND WE'RE GOING TO WAIT FOR THEM TO BOARD. SO WE'RE LEAVING THE DOORS OPEN. YOU CAN GO OUTSIDE, SMOKE A CIGARETTE, STRETCH YOUR LEGS... DO WHATCHA GOTTA DO"

so some of us went outside. then the other train gets closer.... the conductor signals for us to get on... we do. they close the doors.

the conductor speaks :

"LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, WE AREN'T WAITING FOR THEM (insert sigh) WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT ALL ABOUT? YA' GOT ME."

yes. verbatim. I swear. I have to find this conductor and see if he's married. I think I am smitten with his attitude.

yahooooo! (down undah)

here's the banner ad that Yahoo Australia and NZ ran

notice anything interesting about that?

besides the obvious "one of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn't belong"

(it's flash, so make sure you have that)

see about a month ago, Yahoo Australia/NZ contacted me and asked me if they could use my logo in their "create your own my.yahoo" campaign... suuuuure said i, and handed over the image... (i think it's because gigglechick.com is ranked #32 popular on the web according to yahoo. and still #3 in the entertainment & arts > humor & satire section... i still have no idea why, so if anyone is out there saying "what the hell's this site doing on there, step behind me in the queue.)

no idea if more banners/ads/etc were produced down there - but it's freaky that my logo is on the same banner as the onion and the smoking gun

June 10, 2005

the other white meat...

so yeah, it's late. once again am up in the middle of the night yapping online...i wasn't feeling too swell today (technically thursday) so i stayed home from work... slept a lot.

and then i received an "anonymous" fed ex...

what could this be? i mean, over the past week i've received a claddagh ring, a big ol' bottle of iced green tea perfume, golf sandals, springsteen's devils and dust cd, a book on swearing effectively, the book High Fidelity and now this....

the thing is, i know who the people are who sent me the other stuff this past week... one's on the east coast here (mike) and the other's in germany (neil)

but, now there's this... sent from the west... but via memphis...

6 (yes. SIX) glorious pounds of Corky's BBQ Pulled Pork (complete with 2 bottles of bbq sauce)

oh sweet heavens to mergatroid - that's some fiiiiiiiiine pulled pork shoulder there.

so, eh, PorkBoy(s)... i thank you, from the bottom of my tummy.

dead

dog tired.

swinging a dead cat

sitting home tonight - resting after the past week and lack of sleep... actually am sitting here coding this freelance thing --- trying to wrap my head around some cgi stuff - alas, i think i need coffee (haven't had caffeine all day - just pulled pork sammiches.)

so i took the train down from cathy's this morning (actually the 12:07pm.) wasn't looking too horrid, but could've been better... when changing at long branch i hear "erin." nah, no one i know is on this train it's bloody 1:30pm on a saturday.

"erin!"

i turn... it's TrainBoy! i haven't seen him in, like, two weeks... fancy running into him on the saturday train.

then i hop in my car at 'squan... put the top down (the car top, thanks - no need to frighten small children otherwise) and just take a drive down near the beach.

so i am near the corner of first and main, near the Osprey (bar for those "not in the know") and i was about to turn right when i see a cute guy looking at me and squinting and then both of us realized "hey, it's you."

yeah. the RHB was out walking. so i pulled over and chatted for like 3 min. - nope, didn't offer him a ride (in the car, folks. dirty gutterminds) - wanted to, but didn't - hadn't seen him since i think the belmar parade... whatever...

and then i came home and watched the belmont stakes (woooo! afleet alex!)

i have a slight headache and am really trying to figure out this cgi/form crap.

help.

okay i figured out the code on my own all is swell and the site is done (will ask them if its cool if i post it over the next day or so...)

anyway- it's late. i'm tired. been on the phone and now feel sore throaty. can't tell if it's from lack of sleep or laughing and yapping a lot.

and go say hi to kate... it's her 35th birthday.... - you'll always be older than me, right kate? ;P

theindustryroom.com --- go. now.

okay - so the site that i've been working on (freelance) is now up and live...

tir_banner.jpg

go, check it out, if you know of anyone that performs stand-up, send them the link, forward it, talk it up, the guys that run this (it's not a blog, but it's a showcase/seminar site for stand-up comics) are really swell eggs and i am totally backing this site up...

check out TheIndustryRoom.com now!!

and if you are interested in it, and perform stand-up or want to know more about the "industry", get on their mailing list (i promise you won't get spammed by any crazy outside sites other than the sporadic emails the industry room might send)

(let me know what you think - i went for clean, simple, straightforward. it's mainly about the showcase/seminars....)

go check it out. give me feedback... (i think the contacts page is a bit wonky on some browsers so i will have to tweak that.)

June 15, 2005

in for a rough day

well, i haven't slept. was on the phone with the U.A.*click*M. ™ for 232 minutes... so, i'll hop in the shower, try to attempt to remain upright and not slip/fall/break neck

who the hell am i kidding? i can't type right now. will attempt to make train and sleep for 2 hours.

so tired.

wait! Stop!

I caught the 6:55am train!! so early! I could've stayed on til newark then switched but I figured I would hop off at long branch and catch the 7:41out of there (otherwise i'd have to do the up & down stair action in newark. and right now I am laaaaazy)

so I pop off the train and follow a bunch of people on the train across the platform, sit down, good seat, then feel the train moving...... BACK TOWARDS MANASQUAN! - not what I wanted.

now am on the 7:44 out of elberon (what is the 7:20 out of squan) and guess what?

I now have to do the up & down stair action in newark to get my connecting train.

*snarl*

Whole lotta shakin' going on

am tired and surly right now...sitting on the 5:57pm train home.. and what do I have next to me?

a leg shaker/tapper.

I feel like i've spent a quarter on one of those magic fingers beds.... except he might be getting a magic fist to his head in a minute

okay gonna attempt to sleep.

a comment on comments.

i've closed the comments on the previous post because - while i am sympathetic to a person's issues, come on... i was talking about some idiot on the train next to me - silliness - and it turned into a forum on someone being raped...

whether true or not, it's not the forum for doing so. if need be, email me if you want to chat about that, but please don't start turning certain posts into "something different" by commenting like that.

because i mentioned rape in this post - yes, i can understand if you want to post about that here... but, just realize, that while i tend to bitch and all that on here, i am still trying to do that in a humourous way...

and no. not about to do rape jokes... so if anyone attempts to post anything like that, you will be banned.

there. that said.

GOOD MORNING!!!!

WHO WANTS TO BE A GOOD STALKER?

coffee/red bull friday

was talking with U.A.Click into the wee hours of the night again... ya' ever just not get enough of talking with someone?

so am on the 7:50am outta long branch... woke up at 6:58 and was out of the house at 7:04.... pretty me. and I forgot I have to have my photo taken for work today (no worries, i've looked much worse before... hopefully I will be able to airbrush the image :)

i've got some crazy woman in front of me singing "it's a hard knock life" from Annie (off-key. that's why I mention it)

summer hours today.... 1pm am out

(guy clipping toenails to my left on the train..... whyyyyyyy? put your effing shoes on because we're almost in the station)

Benny friday #3 - the 2:07pm

summer hours, got out at 1...headed over, got manicure, eyebrow/lip wax

(yes, so right now I am sitting on the train sporting big red welts around my eyes and mouth.... sexxxy.)

did the clear nail stuff again... yeh. interesting, eh?

nice that I had my claddagh off during manicure, then after hand massage the technician tried to put it on my left hand (i wear it on the right) so I shook my head. she taps my left ring finger, *tsks* and says "christmas cake?"

she frigging called me christmas cake... (if you don't understand, google it.)

me and my wax welts and freshly varnished nails high-tailed it outta there after all was done.

now am sitting near 3 chatty bimbo bennys who are showing each other the whore tops they bought and are all wearing the same gold flip-flops (yes. gold.)

Waiting for Yetmann

okay so I was just about to write a scathing post without a silver lining... but this now has a glimmer of silver.

I was on the parkway going north to exit 105 so I could catch the train in long branch.

a big builder's pick-up cuts me off to exit as well.

wtf?

I see the guy is on his cell phone. whatever. then when we have to merge a little further up, I am in the left lane and the troll tries swerving into my lane...

so I gave him my best snarl (we wound up stopped at a light.)

he rolls down his window (still on phone) and hollers:

"hey you're pretty cute I want two sugars and cream in my coffee oh and your car would look great wrapped around my bumper"

oh. no. he. dint. mmmmm hmmm he dit.

the onslaught of obscenities is released from my interior. then I see the name and number of the builder... yetmann builders.

as we pull away - him swerving and chasing me - I call. get the answering machine... I proceed to leave a few 'choice' words for the to listen to over and over....

I make it to the train station - the truck stayed on rt 36.

when I get to the station I decide to call again. a man answers. he's the owner. rich yetmann.

I tell him what transpired and he says "in MY truck with MY name on it. I apologize... " then asked for a plate #. I told him I was too busy trying to get away from him... buuuuut.... I do know the guy had a beard and was heavyset and had gotten off the parkway at 105 and was on 36...

and he said "well that certainly narrows it down and this will be handled... if you have any other run-ins, call"

and so earlier I was going to post the number and release my minions, erm, I mean readers on them, but it seems as if it might just be this fat arsed slob that works for the company and NOT the company's fault.

nobody but nobody threatens my phooka.

Taking care of the big organ

bought some new pots and potions last night... going to try to keep the skin looking decent.

bought Dove Firming Lotion - promises firmer skin in 2 weeks. yeah I know it's most likely a crock, but i'll try it and post my review of it here... I like the smell and it does (the seaweed extract) has some sort of tightening aspect to it from what it feels like day 1.

then I bought the oil of olay beauty vitamins. hopefully these won't kill me (bloody horse pills)

so we'll see. in the meantime traffic snarled on the way to the train and i'm now on the riff-raff express.


*****FYI - UPDATE.***** I FEEL FINE. I AM NOT WORRIED ABOUT AGING. I AM NOT USING PREPARATION H. I DO NOT HAVE WRINKLES AND AM NOT WORRIED ABOUT WRINKLES. I MERELY STATED FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY THAT I BOUGHT DOVE SKIN FIRMING CRAP AND OIL OF OLAY VITAMINS. NO, I AM NOT TRYING ASSCREAM ON MY FACE. I ALREADY HAVE TEATREE OIL. I AM NOT LOOKING FOR MAGIC ELIXIRS - I WAS IN THE FRIGGING DRUGSTORE LAST NIGHT AND HAD SOME IMPULSE BUYS.

new legacy

hey hey all - well, today as i was driving up to north jersey there were a ton of jackasses on the road and some schmuck almost killed me and my mini...

what flashed through my head (besides the obvious family, loved ones, friends bit) was "oh my god. my last post on my site was a crappy meme that describes me as frigging Jar-Jar"

had to go up north today because my friend cathy's dad passed away last week and today was the funeral. sad. very.

what a beautiful day though... it was 90 degrees. once again i was up until about 4am talking on the phone... (gigglemom is none too pleased that i am "up late talking" - but hey, i am bloody 35. not 12 and i can do what i damned well please. thanks.)

i just finished watching "In Good Company" - wow, i really liked this film... anyone else see it?

i have to work on a freelance site tonight... have to wrap my noggin around reorganizing and redesigning the existing site that is up there and figure out the best way to streamline it... seriously, anything will be an improvement, but...

what else? oh! my cousin kerry is supposed to be arriving home tonight (if any of you remember, she moved last july to Marathon, Florida...) -- i am so happy! she'll be here for about a month... yay!!! hoping tomorrow we'll go hang at the Union Landing patio bar in the afternoon (i have some cleaning to do in the morning and i also wanted to go to the driving range with my friend Carol, but i haven't been to the UL yet at all this season... it's funny not going with Kerry, so i haven't gone)

well, must start fiddling with the look and feel and architecture of the site that i have to do...

at least my site won't be left with the Jar-Jar legacy now.

June 27, 2005

I NEED YOUR EYES AND COMMENTS

totally skipped posting yesterday. last night my cousin kerry and I headed down to the union landing and had mojitos (and I ate 3 dozen shrimp - yum!)

right now am on the RRE trying to write some new bits for my set that I have to perform...

HELP ME. GO THROUGH MY ARCHIVES (ON THE LEFT) AND FIND WHAT YOU THINK ARE MY MOST HUMOROUS STORIES, GROWLFESTS, RANTS, ETC AND COMMENT HERE WITH THEM.

PLEASE.

see I keep thinking I haven't written anything for my set in like, 2 years, but technically I write almost every day (while they aren't all "gems", it's still the thought process.)

SO PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOUR FAVOURITE STORY OF MINE IS (IF YOU CAN COME UP WITH MORE THAN ONE, THAT'D BE SWEET. DONT BE AFRAID TO GO WAAAAYYYY BACK IN THE ARCHIVES.)

thank you. that's my time, folks.

Should I?

am very close to using my old set because it used to work. I got laughs on every bit. and I got too comfortable using it and didn't "try" to write new stuff... okay technically I did write new stuff, it's just the fact that I was afraid to use the new material.

so right now I am toying with the idea of using the old stuff because it's a solid 7 minutes... and only cathy would have seen that set before.

but a good part of me wants to add some new stuff which would mean, oh, I dunno... sucking it up and heading to an open mic. I have material, I just don't want to flop. is that too much to ask?

anyway... see the previous post because I still need your help

stupid treo.

so i've been using the headset on my treo all week (just bought it last wednesday)

anyway. I just tried to make a call without the headset and the ear/hearing part of the actual frigging phone isn't working. I am going to have to have them send me an effing replacement again. this is ridiculous.

A letter from the editor

not for nothing - I appreciate the omments saying that folks love my site, don't get me wrong.... but...

why does it seem like inane comments are posted every 23-28 days... it's like some people can tell I am PMSing and know that asking what bloody day it is will get my goat.

to explain my site: it's a blog (aka web log) like millions of others.

this is basically my online personal journal. my thoughts. my days. my site.

there's nothing really "to get". it just is a diary. online.

yes I welcome comments. but I reserve the right to delete any that I don't want on my site. I reserve the right to ban people who abuse the comments or who are just jackasses in general.

if you so choose to trash my site, you had better damned well have your own site that has the comment capability... otherwise, guess what? your comment? deleted.

that said. sit back. read the site. click around. read the archives that date back to 2000.

enjoy.... but don't be an ass.

seeing eye girl

So I drove into the city for work today - am supposed to go see Cowboy Mouth on the rocksoff boat - odds are I won't be going - have had tix for a couple of months, but, part of me isn't in the mood

Phooka nearly was killed by a crazy 90 year old in a yamikuh driving a beat up old boat of car on 10th ave� had a few choice words for him as I veered away�

After lunch, walking back from the office with the girls - on 37th between 7th and broadway - my arm was grabbed by a blind Japanese man� he asked me to walk him a few blocks. What could I do? Push him away and scream? No. so I did. I told him I'd walk him to wherever he was going on 34th between 7th and 8th - but he said he didn't want to make me late for work and get fired, so he was adamant about me letting him "free" at 35th and 7th --- so I made sure he had someone else leading him�

I am a magnet for things like that, aren't i?

congrats are in order!

snazzy kat is having a kitten!!!

Are those floods you're wearing?

sweet heavens to mergatroid. it was/is pouring (buckets, cats, dogs, torrential, arrrgh) this morning...

I drove half an hour north to long branch to catch the 7:51 and was early... except there was flooding!

norwood ave. - flooded. at LEAST 2 FEET! (photos tonight)

about 8 vans, cars, suvs were stuck in the water. I saw it and made a u-ie to bypass and try for higher ground to get to the station (keep in mind, it doesn't help to be less than a mile from the Atlantic, which was already swelling)

so I wound up going down eight (yes, 8!) different roads... to no avail. all were flooded. and I wasn't chancing Phooka drowning... already made him go into the city yesterday and get run down by Crazy Schlomo.

so I decided to trek up to another station... Little Silver. the land of one of the first of the daunting, massive parking lots..... and it was permit parking. I saw a cop, drove over to him. he said to park in the metered spots... then he said "just an fyi, the meters with yellow flags are broken so no money needs to go in them"

then he winked.

I winked back and smiled since he let me in on this conspiracy.

so it's in the wayyyyy back of the parking lot, which will be scary and rapey later tonight (hopefully less on the rape side since it's little silver)

anyway... since I missed the 7:51 out of long branch, the train I am now on out of little silver is the 8:24 out of long branch, which just so happens to be the 7:50 outta 'squan... which just so happens to be the RRE (which, dear confused new readers, stands for the Riff-Raff Express)

did I mention I have no idea where my umbrella is?
