Today I received a combination Toaster / Toaster Oven for Father's Day. Last year I got a PS3. Some would think this was a downgrade, but I make a lot of toast, and my old toaster was possesed by the tortured spirit of an evil Canadian Witch Doctor.

Anyway, on the side of the box it gives instructions in English and Spanish for how to...

When I was driving once,
I saw this painted on a bridge...

"I don't want the world. I just want your half."

Track from the mix CD made for my daughter (5 months old)

WALTZING MATILDA

Once a jolly swagman camped by the billabong
Under the shade of a coolabah tree
And he sang as he sat and waited while his billy boiled
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?

Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?
And he sang as he sat...

THE RAINBOW CONNECTION

Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side?

Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
And rainbows have nothing to hide.

So we've been told and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see.

Someday we'll find...

SLOOP JOHN B

We come on the sloop John B
My grandfather and me
Around nassau town we did roam

Drinking all night
Got into a fight
Well I feel so broke up
I want to go home

So hoist up the John B's sail
See how the mainsail sets
Call for the...

NEW SOUL

I'm a new soul
I came to this strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit
about how to give and take

But since I came here,
felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making
every possible mistake

La, la, la, lah
La la la la la la lah...

Track 20 from the mix CD made for my daughter (5 months old)

SNOOPY VS. THE RED BARON

After the turn of the century,
In the clear blue skies over Germany,
Came a roar and a thunder man had never heard,
Like the screaming sound of a big war bird.

Up in the sky, a man in a plane
Baron von Richthofen was his name...

I walked into the kitchen. Thanks to the heat wave, the power had been out all afternoon. Kiki sat in the corner, naked, reading a copy of John Fante's "Ask The Dust", a gallon jug of water that was usually kept in the fridge between her legs.

"What?" She asked as I looked at her. "It's hot in here!"

I should never have switched from Scotch to Martinis.
