gertie

sunday afternoon

may get my butt out of the house in a little bit. may not. we shall see.

youssou n'dour last night was really good. transporting, even. eventually even most of the mezzanine was dancing. so glad shmizla (pretty much) drug me there.

earlier in the day she'd seen a bumpersticker:

IF YOU CAN READ THIS, THANK A TEACHER
IF YOU CAN READ THIS IN ENGLISH, THANK A VETERAN


or was it "A SOLDIER"? either way, an accomplishment in pithy ign'ance. simultaneously stupid on multiple levels.

later i came up with this (variation on a theme) idea for a bumpersticker:

        FREE YOUR ASS AND
   YOUR MIND WILL FOLLOW


or is it more an idea for a religion?

i wonder whether "lord love a duck" comes from a particular concept in theology.
