It's O.J. Simpson

I guess I understand why people I met in Boston always treated me like a lunatic when they learned that I left this place. Then they REALLY treated me like lunatic when I began acting like one. lol.

I worked with a bartender in Boston who was about 40. He very plainly told me once that San Diego was soul-less. We were both being hard on this town, so I wasn’t offended. But I was taken back by soul-less. I thought there was truth to it.
On the way to work yesterday. I'm usually not up for the sunrise. No surprise there, eh?

Soulless...hmmm. I used to think of it as an LA lite. The botox, the phoniness, the materialism, but to a much lesser extent.

It's a big military town as well. Lots of Marines and Navy. People come and go. They sell their motorcycles on craigslist when they get deployed.

I don't know how to end this post other than to say that I'm tired. You probably are too. So let's just end it here. Tell you what, why don't you "draw" yourself a nice hot bath, wrap a hot towel around yourself and make yourself a bowl of soup? Okay? It's been a long week. It's Friday, time to unwind. No point in reading this most inane San Diego blog pictorial bullshit.
