"Where else would you go when you have an ax to grind?"

Saturday, May 05, 2007

It has been a beautiful week in Tokyo. Warm, sunny, clear skies - great weather all week. A month ago we booked a site for a barbecue today for our family and about 30 other people as it is the last day of the Golden Week holidays, which are sort of the Japanese version of spring break. We have to pay for the site and you can't cancel, so sure enough, I woke up to thunder this morning. When I looked out the window it was, to quote Ken Kesey, "like a cow pissing on a flat rock" -- So think of me doing my Gene Kelly while you're all warm and dry today.

Personally, I blame George Bush and Dick Cheney. I'm not sure how, but I'm sure its their fault.

Ken Kesey. What a great reference. Have you read the Electric Acid Kool Aid Test? The descriptions of Neal Cassady alone make it worthwhile. I think of him, crazed on speed, tapping the steering wheel and living scant moments in the future, everytime I drive. I don't tell my wife this.

I meant to write Electric Kool Aid Acid Test. But I didn't.

I didn't just read it, David, I based my late teens and early 20s on it.
