    ashley doesnt like it 

    when i talk about politics. shes not the only one.

    she wrote in and said that if she took a picture of she and her sister in catholic girl skirts would i just shut up and write about her.

    i said, bribery and flattery will get you everywhere.

    she enclosed the following picture and told me that i am the sexiest man she’s ever known.

    ::sigh:: if only she loved me for my mind.

    ashley is finishing up her summer vacation in las vegas this weekend. the family took a quick trip to sunny palm springs followed by a spur of the moment excursion to the happiest place on earth and then back to vegas for more heat. ashley loves it hot. i do too.

    this weekend her daddy’s gonna buy her a car, which is going to be an interesting situation because that means that she will probably be making more trips up to see me than what has been the norm.

    in my quest to help her find boys her own age, i have suggested that she really shouldnt be calling and emailing and hanging with me as much as she does but she just calls me stupid and tells me how much she misses me.

    recently Hef emailed me and told me that he has the same troubles with his girfriends which is why he’s up to 6 of the blonde bombshells currently.

    “gotta take the good with the bad,” he told me, “plod on the best that you can, dude.”

    i like it when older guys say “dude.” it sounds so funny.

    there is an old budhist line that goes: what you resist, persists.

    this is the first time ive ever pushed a girl away who would have nothing of it.

    i cant say it’s terrible.

    whats also pretty neat is when people borrow from my style. recently ive seen annessa talk to her blog, kool keith interview several of his personalities simultaneously, as well as various others who take pics from reuters and write around them.

    imitation pleases me.

    pretty much my whole experience of blogging has been quite a happy little journey of suprising discoveries.

    people write in and try to narc on others who are “biting” my style, but i think its fine. humans are animals who grow by mimicking. i dont wear my influences on my sleeve, i plaster them right across my chest: bukowski, e.e., sukenick, royko, layne, welch, vaine, jd salinger, spin, maxim, the man show, howard stern.

    after a while ones own personality will come through.

    maybe next week will be the week that mine will finally make it here.

    lets hope it has been worth the wait.
