I am a patient boy
I wait, I wait, I wait, I wait
My time, the water down a drain
Everybody's moving, everybody's moving
Everybody's moving, moving, moving, moving
Please don't leave me to remain
In the waiting room
I don't want the news
I'm not a part of it
I don't want the news
I have no use of it
Sitting outside of town
Everybody's always down -- tonight
Because they can't get up
Come on and get up
Come on and get up
But I don't sit idly by
I'm planning a big suprise
I'm gonna fight
For what I want to be
And I won't make the same mistakes -- cos I know
Because I know how much time that wastes -- and function
Function is the key
In the waiting room



function indeed .........(lyrical credit to Fugazi and the last pic...strange eh?)
See ya'll in a week or so

wires crossed (and spontaneous hijack)

back when i was serving time in TX, as in living there, guys typically referred to their 'nads as huevos. it's a euphemism. for some reason (oddly) the word cajones wasn't widely used. perhaps they were confused, or just as likely i was confused - you know, being a yankee and all.

anyway, from time to time i see references to bike camping where guys don't want to use panniers and so they substitute a backpack. guess it's referred to as "bikepacking", but to me that just translates as "wrong". it puts a lot of pressure on the crotch when riding, especially on impact. something a guy might be concerned with. when i ride offroad, the only thing on my back is a small hydration pack that doesn't drag on the shoulders or weigh down on the crotch.

sorry to hijack the thread, but i couldn't resist reminiscing about a recent camping trip on catalina island. that's me and double-a, and our friend "death valley steve" all bundled up in sun protection...

From one of the munchkin's Dr Seuss books...although I would argue that waiting for the fish to bite misses the point...

You can get so confused
that you'll start in to race
down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace
and grind on for miles across weirdish wild space,
headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.
The Waiting Place...

...for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go
or a bus to come, or a plane to go
or the mail to come, or the rain to go
or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
or waiting around for a Yes or a No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake
or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting.

NO!
That's not for you!

Somehow you'll escape
all that waiting and staying.
You'll find the bright places
where Boom Bands are playing.

Sorry, but it's cOjones, and at least around here they're the same as huevos--agree it sounds like it should be female (after all, it means "eggs"), but the terms were always used interchangeably, by people more conversant in Espanol/Spanglish than I.

I'll get off my soapbox now.
