another police incident in my ‘hood.

get me out of here.

in the middle of a long day of drudgery yesterday (moving stuff into storage,) i popped into the local thrift store for some mental relief.  again – found more house related items:

c’mon.  it’s GOT to be some sort of omen, right?  maybe i’m supposed to move to sweden and live in a cottage on the water and do swedish massage.  lord knows i love the design there.  there would be that little problem of not knowing the language, though.

capped my evening off with one of these.  a strawberry mojito.  had my first one ever the other night after meeting a friend for a bite to eat and a refreshing summer beverage at olio.  i’d never even heard of a strawberry mojito before , but i was feeling adventurous.  i always have fun there, but indulge me for a moment…what is it with me and PEOPLE?  i will never understand people.  not much of a crowd at the bar when we met there (it was past the dinner hour.)  we chose to sit at the far corner.

the one girl left, the couple moved to a table to eat dinner, and once again, lori and i cleared out a bar like nobody’s bidness.  the bar is completely empty now when in walks a couple.  and where do they choose to sit in completely empty bar with, oh, i dunno, a dozen seats from which to choose?DSCF0653

DSCF0654honest to goodness, it’s unnerving and uncomfortable.  no buffer zone.  this is the sort of thing that usually happens to me at the movie theater (see here and here.) 

whatever.  i managed to make a “boundary” of sorts using my eyeglasses case and bulky set of keys in between me and the girl.   apparently my laws-of-attraction quality was in overdrive yet again.  of course it’s always in stall mode when a single, good-looking man with a personality comes around.  wait….does that EVER happen?  is there even such a thing?  at this point i don’t even CARE about the good-looking.  give me single with a personality.  i say, “no such thing.”
