riding in police cars with boys

Whoa nelly! New York. Just like i pictured it, skyscrapers and everything...

I can't believe the New York cops drove me around in their police van after my Fez show. We drove on the wrong side of the road at over 80 miles an hour just to make my heart beat faster and faster. I had just left Dana and Bill's place after cooking tacos for several thousand people. Only in America would New York cops drive you around the city in a police van at warp speed around lowly pedestrians and bicycle riders in the middle of czech intersections and yoga instructors. Thanks to all the folks who came to Dana and Bill's living room show. It was truly epic.

Who woulda thunk that the Cubbies and Red Sox would be competing in October baseball. Last night I went to Yankee Stadium and watched the Red Sox win game one of the American League Championship Series. Wow... What a game! It is like going back in time to visit Yankee Stadium. Hot dogs and beer and crazy fans screaming at each other. Talk about a rivalry. I love October and always get depressed when baseball ends.

My new record is selling like hotcakes at a Lion's Club breakfast. Some crazy guy is selling my used razor on Ebay and the leaves are changing color. The police officer in New York gave me a get out of jail free card after scaring the shit out of me. So I got that going for me. Which is nice.

Boston here I come.

Have a good one all, wish I could meet you, planned on it good food sayin hi and leaving sooner than I'd like, but too much homework and like a slight cold I think or not blinded by homework. Picture me there forgetting to drink or even eat just wondering where it all went wrong or not so wrong but how I'm supposed to get any homework done when I can't remember what my problem is...wondering how much better things could truly be and understanding that little by little it could be that way...if it's not already in some ways on some days...I've got so much to do it seems to me at least, so I'll be missing you all.
