So I saw this guy sitting on some steps the other day, and I was like, “Huh. Wonder what he’s doing?”

And then I realized what it was–he was doing nothing!

I totally want to try that someday. It looks awesome!

American Junkie



Tom Hansen

P.S. Tom Hansen’s making a rare public appearance tonight at Pilot Books for the release of American Junkie, an excellent, honest, and captivating book. 7pm, for those in Seattle that can make it. I’ll be there!

Here’s what American Junkie is about in Star Wars language: There is no mysterious “Force” in the galaxy (yet Darth Vader is still around, and just as deadly). This book is Luke’s journey toward facing Vader, anyway, without the Force. Or a lightsaber. Also, Luke doesn’t whine all the time.

That would make more sense to me.

One Thing I Learned from Star Wars

If you go into a cave, and Darth Vader comes out of the darkness, it’s okay to slice Darth’s head off, because it’s probably just a clone of you dressed up as Darth, and your clone sucks at sword fighting, so–easily done.

Someone at the dry cleaner was bored and had a sense of humor.

Does this make it dry humor?

The following is based on events that occurred on May 21.

I’m in the car with the sweetheart. We haven’t seen each other in over two months and there’s absolutely no weirdness.

“So,” I say, “is it really foggy or is all that pollution?”

“Pollution,” she says.

Even so, it’s quite pretty.
