a desert of snow

being an oasis in rushville means than can overcharge-- like more than eight bucks for a salad (without meat). and i guess they figure if they plow the snow in the parking lot when no one is looking, they can get even more money.

stuck inside of valentine with the memphis blues again.

i am up in valentine. waited all day for the snow to start falling. and then it just kept going and going and going. for those outside of the know, valentine is a beautiful town on the niobrara river. it is the romantic capital of our fair state. the street signs have hearts. they have special feb 14 events. someone paints hearts on their sidewalks.

it took a bit, but i got the ice up to see one of them.

you're gonna go far.

so i could be doing any number of work-related tasks, but instead... well, i am putting it off.

ate a real nice steak, followed up by a stick and some booze in the smoking room at the arrow hotel in downtown broken bow. was no buck-fifty per diem (bronson?), but not a bad night. this is the calm before the storm for tuesday's election day.

tell me all the things i long to hear

yeah yeah yeah. so mike had a baby. i have seen babies. but this, this is something i have not seen. an aunt gave the baby boy a stuffed dog. lucy, a beagle, seems to like the stuffed lab more than the baby. she really goes to town on the poor thing.

one litre. two horns. three friends.

you wanna know what makes beer better? a viking helmet. and a fire. and a couple good friends.

i spent the week in the east coast. mostly bs-ing and drinking some good beer. but when you see danish, one litre and 2.99 all in the same package, you gotta get one. i won't say it was the best beer i drank last week, but pound-for-pound (at least in britain), it was one of the best of the week.

oh, and you don't pour it into glasses. you hand that sucker around the fire. and take pictures.

his puke matches his shirt

seriously, this is a sign you may need to make some changes in your life... drink a little less. maybe work on getting some new friends. get a job and buy a real shirt.

this guy really was puking when i walked by and i did not shoot it. but i had a hunch it was just round one. here is round two... at the start of the second quarter of the husker football game in ames. nice way to celebrate a touchdown.
