Geez, Rev ... you an insomniac or one of those horrid morning people???

Both lately. I liked it better when I was just one of horrid morning people though.

On the bright side there was a man on my TV teaching the history of Canada before 1939. Today he was talking about how women came into the work force and the origins of the steno pool. If you can't sleep to that, then you can't sleep at all.

The least you could do is say morning back. It's the polite Canadian thing to do.

Alice Cooper revisited?

It was ugly. I had to shoot pool with Mrs. Rev's co-workers but they'd placed some sort of misguided moratorium on gambling. You can't smoke in pool halls anymore either, so we all ended up huddled outside in the cold comparing beer bellies. How sick and twisted is that? Alice never had nightmare's like this.

So I woke up this morning feeling a little...off. Now it's morning again. 3:30 and I'm wondering if I should give up and call myself Linda or crawl into bed and pretend to be normal while surreptitiously watching college professors mumble about Greek myths.

To take a wild shot at quoting Ray Davies from raw memory..."Might as well stand and face it, Life is soooooo complicated."

Has anybody got Muswell Hillbillies on CD? I love that album....

Hmmm.... Alice may not have had nightmares like that then...but now, I think it might be a different story. He played a casino here not to long ago. Mind you the casinos (on the reserves) allow smoking.

I prefer the Band actually:

Life is a carnival
believe it or not
life is carnival
at two bits a shot.

Sort of a reap what you sew, kinda thing happening there. Still both quotes could be said to have a similar philosophy.

Hey... did you rub your belly when people walked in & out saying...

" AAAHHHH!!!... Ice cold beer."

Just a thought.

'kay, I've decided to call myself Linda. The coffee is on. I know a lot of you were wondering who the F*** Linda was. I know a lot of you just got a little more confused. It happens.

Oh...that Band. Yeah, I prefer them too. I have an inkling you knew that though.

No. We *****d me out as "Buddha for quarter" though. Nobody would give anything until the girl with big boobies stood beside me, then they rubbed so much my belly hair got knots. I felt bad for her because she seemed not to get the joke. I did like her boobies though...they were large. Also, people gave money to whatever the hell the official cause was.

Was her name Linda? :P

...Maybe she got it but was ignoring it. I doubt it, but it is a possibility.

Hmmm... Knotting Hairbellies..wasn't that a band with Harrison, Dylan, Petty, Orbison and occaisionally Lynne. Maybe that's why people were giving you cash. They thought you were famous...or an impersonater. On a good night you do kinda look like Jeff Lynne. perhaps they thought you were Tom Petme. Although you don't look like him. Were you wearing sunglasses?....oh nevermind we won't go there. :P

Was it the Princess you were at? Or did you head out to the old St. V. ? is that still set up with tables? Inquiring minds want to know.

Who knows what might have happened if I had not come along and broken you two crazy folks apart (physically). It is a good thing, a very good thing. But..g'night cuz you are keeping Peapod awake.

I have no idea. She had big boobies, I was drinking beer, names just didn't matter to us. I'm still a pig...er...man...you know.

No, I'm pretty sure she was stupid. Actually, that's been confirmed by her co-worker.

You just did go there. I'm not sure what they thought, but this next bit might explain...

It was a poolhall in a stripmall on Regent. It's called the Starlight, presumably named after the Drive-in that was there sometime before I moved to Winnipeg. 97% of Mrs. Rev's co-workers are Transcona-ites. They like to drink a lot and vote for Bill Blaikie. So do I. It's wall to wall leftist red-necks.

Hey, I knew a transvesite that crossed over to the other side, he who was she went by the name of linda. :P

Did anybody ever write a bad song about he/she in the 70's?

I have to tawdle off and do some work now. I'm still wondering if anybody has copy of Muswell Hillbillies on CD though....

I'm thinking of Ray Materick,Canadian Country Singer,who had a song about Linda putting the coffee on

Ah the Starlight Drive in...they finally did something with that land. Hmmm. I thought it was still standing after you moved to Winnipeg. Maybe not I know they had torn it down before you and Mrs. Rev moved to Pink Flamingo ville. Hmmm... all those pink flamingoes...all those union leftists....Do ya think that's where the term Pinko came from? Just musing.

Five Man Electric Band had a song titled Melinda. John Prine has one with Lydia in it. If you wanna go way back there was a song for the "lindy", which was a dance.

Ding, ding, ding...give that man a kewpie doll. I didn't think the reference was all that obscure, that song was in heavy rotation on AM radio for at least a year.

I'm not sure if it's exactly where the drive-in was. It's in that little strip mall across from Kildonan Place. Since I neveer went to the Starlight Drive-in, it's kind of hard for me to know exactly where it was.

Nah...It was further East... where Regent splits off to Pandora.That sounds like the center that was called Crossroads or is it just where the back road Kildonan Place dumps out there?
