stray cat

(no subject)

Many amazing things on Saturday night.

As I was driving south to meet up with the birthday boy, I realized that I had forgotten to brush my teeth. And I had just eaten a double quarter pounder with onions. I started stressing about it; considered driving back home. Then I remembered I had a brand-new toothbrush still in the car from the last visit to the dentist.

I was listening to music and singing along. I thought it would be cool if we ended up at a bar doing karaoke because I was in the mood to sing. We went to Leilani Lanes because some of the partygoers had reserved a couple of lanes for Rock 'n' Roll Bowling. It just so happened that there were too many participants and the lanes were sold out for the night. So I go into the lounge and find karaoke. Not just any karaoke, but really good karaoke. You can judge a karaoke night by the size of the track list binder. And these binders were 1 1/2 inch binders. I sang Epic by Faith No More and Lola by The Kinks.

After many beers and a few hours we were at a different bar discussing what we should do next. I mentioned that all I wanted to do right now is get some grub. Not five minutes later a pizza delivery guy came into the bar. Somebody had ordered 5 pizzas and left before they arrived. So the delivery guy was selling the pizzas at clearance prices.

I had been carrying around my toothbrush in my breast pocket the entire evening; the bristles poking out of the top. It is now my good luck toothbrush

It was a magical evening. It was as if all I had to do was envision what I wanted and it appeared.

I think I'm sophisticated
cuz I'm living my life like a good homosapien
But all around me everybody's multiplying
and they're walking round like flies man
So I'm no better than the animals sitting in their cages
in the zoo man
Cuz compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees
I am an ape man
I think I'm so educated and I'm so civilized
cuz I'm a strict vegetarian
But with the over-population and inflation and starvation
and the crazy politicians
I don't feel safe in this world no more
I don't want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore and make like an ape man

I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man, I'm an ape man.
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voodoo man
I'm an ape man

Cuz compared to the sun that sits in the sky
Compared to the clouds as they roll by
Compared to the bugs and the spiders and flies
I am an ape man
In man's evolution he has created the cities and
the motor traffic rumble, but give me half a chance
and I'd be taking off my clothes and living in the jungle
Cuz the only time that I feel at ease
Is swinging up and down in a coconut tree
Oh what a life of luxury to be like an ape man


I look out my window, but I can't see the sky
cuz the air pollution is fuckin up my eyes
I want to get out of this city alive
And make like an ape man
Come and love me, be my ape man girl
And we'll be so happy in my ape man world


I'll be your Tarzan, you'll be my Jane
I'll keep you warm and you'll keep me sane
and we'll sit in the trees and eat bananas all day
Just like an ape man


I don't feel safe in this world no more
I don't want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore
And make like an ape man.


There are changes every day.
Night is turning into day.
When the blue sky turns to gray
clouds will hide the sun away.
Rain will make the daisies grow.
Rainbows may appear, you know.
