Johnny Depp Film?
No coffee: no chest pain. No alcohol: no chest pain.

No alcohol? No fucking alcohol!

Yes, I've been thinking about that myself. I drifted through a number of years after my mildly rowdy youth where I would drink with friends, but never when I was at home alone. Drinking when you're alone can lead to trouble. My two drinks an evening have been "good for the heart" and, um, comforting. I guess we'll see how it goes.

But enough of that. They say the car will be ready in a couple of weeks. The trailer hitch has to be shipped in from Ohio. Why do I need a trailer hitch when I will probably never use it? When I don't own a trailer, don't want a trailer and probably won't even rent a trailer? I say in for a penny, in for a pound. If you're going to spend the bucks on a new box, why sweat a few days wait to get it wrapped up in the right ribbons and the bows? Get the whole package. Get the electric Cuban cigar trimmer if it tickles your fancy, so what if you don't smoke? (There are no electric cigar trimmers going into my Element.) Get the fog lights. There's fog in San Francisco. (Honest.) Get the..., well, you understand.

You talked for five years about not buying a car, let's not spend five years talking about actually buying one. What's been happening otherwise?

I watched Johnny Darko over the weekend on DVD. I don't know if it was the "director's cut" I learned was released recently. I had no idea as I was watching when the movie was made and thought, seeing how young Johnny Depp looked (he plays a kid in high school), if it wasn't one of his earlier films. Seems it was made just before 9-11 and never, for whatever reason, released to the theaters. A weird little flick, but interesting. How can you not go see a new Johnny Depp film?

A note on “Johnny Darko”.
