they shot grandma!

Other memorable moments from Johnson’s career [as a funeral director]:
- At a summer military funeral at Fort Snelling, the widow passed out from the heat just as the honor guard fired their rifles in salute. Right on cue, a small child called out, “They shot grandma!”

commune dreams.

i just finished Drop City by TC Boyle and i think it's affecting my subconscious. last night i dreamed that i went to the Weezer commune in Minnesota (?) and hung out with Rivers all night. he was really fun and nice and called me "sweetie", but he was not a good kisser.

my personal heaven.

sitting on the back porch of the beach house on Pawley's Island, watching the sun meet the saltwater marsh, listening to the Big Chill soundtrack with one of my dearest friends.
