VI : Fat Tuesday

Posted in City Guides, Hats, The Great Chef Drought Of 08 on March 29, 2008 by jiiiiim

The Amateur often considers taking in some high culture, shortly before breaking down in a coughing and/or laughing fit and going to somewhere cheap, and today it appears his reallocated kids meal card paid dividends, for on the reverse…

V : Suburban Warfare

Posted in Clowns, Diary, Skateboards on March 24, 2008 by jiiiiim

The Amateur was pleased to find in his shreddies, once he had finished choking on it, a free gift containing the new mission. He was only slightly peeved that this took the place of the token he needed three more of to get a skateboard, so compromised and ordered the additional remote bomb.

The Professional does not brag of his accomplishments, for him the job itself is joy enough. Not joy, satisfaction, that the job is done and the wheels are turning as they should. There is no room for involvement, for emotion, for carnivals. Unfortunately The Professional retired some time ago. I’m The Amateur, and I just bought his answer machine. But there are benefits.
