I sing a song of shoes

I have discovered an alarming trend of my online life: I document when I wear out my shoes.

Here’s: The Sandals Which I Killt Wif My Walking from last August. And Old Shoe from 2004. I made a header out of that one.

And in that spirit, here’s the latest in the line of dead soldiers:

This shoe is done.

Getting Lost at Mardis Gras

Tuesday was Mardis Gras, and my Mom reminded me of the time I got lost in the crowds there. I had not remembered how old I was. Here’s the exchange:

Joe, Remember when you got lost att Mardi Gras?  What a scare that was.  We almost lost you twice in crowds.

I replied:

I do remember! That was a fun day. I was 12, right? Or 11?

I can’t seem to remember now.

The word is this:

You were 11 Joe and when I finally found you, you were having so much fun catching doubloons and beads.  You had a big smile on your face when I finally found you.  You made the best of the situation.

As I recall, I pretty much terrified them with that stunt:  here’s some musings on New Orleans which includes someof those rememberances: Robot Fighter, 1982:

I remember Mardi Gras. I remember getting lost at Mardis Gras. We had come over from Gretna to watch Parades. Maybe Bacchus or one of the other Crewes. We came over the bridge, and we were not really nearby home. I got lost. Apparently my parents were frantic, and trying to get the National Guardsmen to find me. Or were they Marines? Anyway, they were huge men in uniform.

Me? I watched the parade. I didn’t worry too much about finding my parents. I wonder if I felt I didn’t need to? Probably I knew that things would be fine, even if the streets were packed with thousands of people. Eventually the parade would end and I’d find my parents.

It’s funny, I think I’m at a stage in the blog where I’m in danger of repeating remembrances. The brilliant thing about the tools available is I can instantly look for whatever I want to on my site by doing a query like “mardis gras site:artlung.com

That’s really all I wanted to say about that.


Lent is here. What’s Lent?

And there are several possibilities floating around on tables.Stay tuned, I might even write about some of them.


On other notes, I bought Head First Object-Oriented Analysis and Design recently, and I need to take the time and get into it some more.

And it’s raining.

Commute time, y’all.
