K: I only skimmed so far. I was impressed at the detail. I'll read in
full later (after work deadline).
b1: i need you to mention it on foodisworse. for G purposes, make sure
to use the word SONIC in the title and in the link.
K: It will be my next post.
b1: good boy. when i searched on SONIC this AM, i saw a new G thing,
where down my search page it said something like "friends in your social
network have this to say about SONIC."
it's weird, because we definitely talk through email and IM. and we're
probably connected on orkut, although i haven't been on there in years.
but i'm not on FB and we're not connected through G space, or whatever
the hell they call(ed) it.
K: Yeah, I hate that. Because I'm not very social.
b1: it seems to me like you talk to and like everyone.

campsite from Minnesota, complete with dusty flea-ridden furniture (no
one seemed to be staying in those cabins), a kind of hippie
entertainment village with stores that sold crystals and tie dye (Laurie
Anderson was working the counter at the one store I wandered into), and
they had the first Days Inn at sea on this boat, which I guess was

K: That is impressive.
A few nights ago I dreamed I was turning around in a handicapped parking
space. A woman yelled at me.
That's the only dream I remember for several months.
b1: i had a dream that i'd had a super-realistic dream where i pulled
