Custom Box

Today I went to CarToys and it truly was "a better way to go." I have a camera phone now. It is a replacement phone since my other one up and croaked. Jordan and Tony, the gentlemen who helped me today, were really funny. I said to the guy next to me, "This place is fun. These people are funny." "That's a good way of describing it," he said. His name was Jeremy. I think that I could have made friends there. Gabe was nice, too. He sat in this chair looking amused and lazy. He didn't want to install a "custom box"--whatever that is. His boss, Tony, said, "Go in there and do something for that ten fifty-eight an hour I pay you." He did. He got right up and walked into the shop, I think to install the "custom box." I really like that phrase: "custom box." Maybe that'll be the name of my next album. It could be ANYTHING. I didn't make any friends at CarToys, but I certainly didn't make any enemies. Not that I know of, anyway. I thought: I wouldn't mind working at Downtown CarToys. Nick even got to walk to the bank to make a deposit. He went just because he felt like taking a walk.

I got lunch at the Detour Cafe today. I read my cell phone user's guide there. I skateboarded there and back. It's so nice out today. That's why Nick wanted to take his walk. I think that Nick and I have a lot in common. First, he works at Downtown CarToys, and I wouldn't mind working at Downtown CarToys. Second, he wanted to take a walk today; I boarded down to the Detour for lunch because it was so nice out. Third, he was wearing a belt: I almost always wear a belt.

I have taken two (2) photos so far: my cats. It (my new phone) still doesn't know who it is yet. I hope that it soon will. I'm reading "The Portrait of a Lady" by Henry James. I relate well to the protagonist, Isabel. I don't have to work tonight so I think I'll drink. I've decided that a DVD festival is about to happen: Stuvie< and Ruby Starr. I'm trying, on the whole, not to be too obsessive.
