I am not much of a swimmer.
I do. I even mucked around having a pool, for a while.
Pools are a lot of work...
The shore is, well, the shore.
And frankly swimming seems kinda dull and exercise-like...
So, from here on out, I am just gonna ride big, damned sharks.
That is how I do it.

Yeah, Ohio, we are headed your way.
By we, I mean KVC and me, and the dog in case we need any snarling viciousness along the way...
There is no plan that I know of...
I am a dude, though.
There are probably all kinds of plans that I am oblivious to.
We will probably go to the same seven places that people always go...
Probably go to the park on Sunday?
Anyway, if I see you there, cool.
If I miss you, well, we probably haven't said two words to each other in ten years. It will be like nothing has changed...

It is a known factor of manhood that men carry pocket knives...
I usually do.
Usually something more weaponesque than this.
But this here was one, of many, that my grandfather carried.
Been in my pocket for over a month...
It feels good, though I am left with little reason to pull it out, day to day.
It is bigger than most versions I have from the man.
The big, coarse, burnt bone handle feels good, as I fumble for keys.
Get a pocket knife.
Cut an apple with it, in a park while the sun beats down...
Be fucking real.
Do real shit...
Do the sort of things that require a pocket knife.

My planet conquering baboonbots are totally going to blow some minds, when I take over the world...
It is all in the little details, with this sort of work, you know.
Sure, giant explosions get peoples attention...
But it is when you come face to helmeted cyborg/baboon hybrid, with terrifying technology dedicated to your own very personal destruction...
That is when you will realize how serious I am with the world domination bit.
You are gonna shit your pants...

The marketing team for Dr Pepper had folks out in the streets of NY last week, giving away free beverages and t-shirts using the classic I <3 NY graphic - but with NY replaced wit DP...
And I fucking missed that?
Seriously, nobody at the beverage company raised a hand to say "maybe we shouldn't go with the DP bit...many people are going to think something other than Doctor Pepper, when they read DP..."

It is tourist season...
Here in Philly, that means packs of good hearted, God fearing, American heartland families in matching shirts and Asians by the bus load.
Neither group quite grasps the fact that, in spite of the whole "brotherly love" bullshit line, you are as likely to get mugged at gun point as to see the Liberty Bell in this city.
And that the southside should have signs like these posted...
