one word petrosian: check

not the bouncy kind
rubber caterwauling all
up and down
the street
wall your street
with paper
and sing hi-de hi-de
hi-de ho,
ms minnie:
if it's 64
squares you're wanting,
then wall
is just the place,
leona and her cats
bernie and his
cast of thousands
bobby checkmating
the whole shebang
dontcha think?
last last time,
get out with
the list. we do
it all: were
we five and diming
at the checkerboard
square, or were we
the ones in the
hen house
singin the blues?

this has nothing to do with your post, but I don't know how else to get in touch with you. considering our interest in spiders, here's a story you're gonna love: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/23/arts/design/23spiders.html?_r=1&ref=arts

Richard: Awesome story, amigo. I love the names: "golden orbs," Mr. Peers and Mr. Godley. Gorgeous gossamer. Thanks for passing it along.

Well, Bro. Murat, this is check and mate! I don't know how you expect to play on 3D with mirrors in the background. Makes me all Boris Spastic to your Bobby. Of course, standing in the 104 degree sun all dressed in black at high noon today probably didn't help... but our protest went very well. I was third mourner behind the casket with a sign "premeditated murder". We didn't have a good old New Oreleans jazz band, but we did have a piper in a kilt leading the procession playing "Amazing Grace". And for some reason, there was a Japanese film company there doing a documentary. 11 other media outlets, too. My Lit Crit prof said it was the best protest he's been to. :)

Google-news'd up word and pictures of y'all's protest. Seems we must have shipped our drought weather your way; we're having wonderfully shivery and rainy fall weather right now. Piper sounds great, certainly stirs the blood. Loved the casket and corpse for the CA Master Plan. So far, I can't pick you out in any of the pictures I found.

After the procession, I was in the background making sure the piper got paid and that the hearse and bus didn't get towed. There is a You Tube video up that flashes past me so fast, it's hard to tell that it's me. If you saw a picture of all the protesters standing up behind the casket, I was over to the left without a sign by then. (I am also wearing dark sun glasses.)

loved the poem, loved the picture, curious as hell about the protest LOL

never visit here without surprises. Oh and loved the silky spider story too!

I am also a sucker for bagpipes. Nothing like a man in a kilt...

Ms D: These comments certainly were a podge of hodge, weren't they? You've got Richard and his gorgeous orbs and Teresa out protesting the drastic cuts in the California university systems budgets. And a poem about whooz and whatz.

For D: great bagpipe music. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhJPezskT8Y

Murat: in the LA times photo, if you click it big, I'm in the black skirt behind the woman in the black and white print dress. My head is turned to the right, my hair is up, and I'm in shades...
