i am an enthusiast of squirrels i love them they make me so happy i even have a few pictures of painted squirrels from a box of russian chocolates on my kitchen wall the squirrel on this box is making himself a coffee using an old samovar am i spelling that right which is odd because the lightning reflexes and charming twitchiness of these little fellas has always made me wonder where they got their coffee and where i might get some so that i could be as agile and free

All my dreams were american last night I dove into the mississipi to save a kid's pair of slippers grasping the support beam of a radio tower to haul myself out where a nice man warned me about the current there were also many open roads and dinner visit to a family that seemed rather indifferent to my presence
america why you so poem like?

Tuesday July the 17th.

Hello everyone. I am wondering why the maple tree outside my window is of the only type of tree that seems plagued with this horrible disease which sucks the moisture from the leaves. On top of that I read an article saying that  the honey bees in the united states are all being kept alive in specialized environments. There are virtually no natural honeybees left. Einstein once said, after the bees are gone humans have approximately 3 years to live. Who knows? Species die out, that is part of nature, and there are a lot of kinds of bee, but... but.... Anyway, for now I will continue to stare at the ailing maple tree and think of my home and native land. Over, but not done.

I lost my voice the other day and it never came back. I remember that for a while there, in the early stages of my voice’s absence, I had been joking how it would be a nice break for everyone. I thought I’d write everything down on post-it notes when I left the house, a mute about town with a pen and post-it notes. I suppose when I turned thirty-two, there really was nothing left to say anymore. All the snow melted that same day and with that came the debris of a sleeping winter. It’s all in what was under the snow that spoke of a neglect or maybe even had it’s own response, some time later, to a purpose or even some seeming display of discard. All the snow melted and with that came new discoveries soiled and turning to thaw again. All the snow melted and what was left were flyers, dog feces, bottle caps, cigarette ends, old parking tickets, plastic bags, tin cans, old clothes, cardboard boxes, window washer containers, socks, report cards, used condoms, house keys, door stoppers, wedding rings, cassette tapes, eye glasses, empty syringes, coat hangers and wax paper cups stained with syrup, salt, oil and dirt. The receding snow revealed a caked on mud that coated a landfill that would hold a lonely dialogue with itself, brown and heavy, reflecting here and there from broken ice and small wind tapped pools. That day had this incredible blinding light that exhaled a breath, and it wasn’t a small breath. It was a breath that resonated like a note and it was a resounding note that everyone and everything could hear and it was loud. All the snow melted that day and with that came the debris of infant strollers, parked cars, train stations, recreation centres, highway overpasses, wedding receptions, food fairs, fancy dress parties and passing conversations. It also seemed to expose a new fever amid the echoes of laughter and voices and you could hear it all under your feet as the remaining snow compacted tight and the thin sheets of ice above the pavement shattered into tiny fragments. A bright, wet, half-warm meeting that would try and transform the dirt and debris, the diapers, the sticks, the stones and the bones into some kind of assembly, some kind of sea coral, too long exposed to the sun. The remainder was all water-logged from the plastic bags filled with leaves from the previous autumn to the corners of drywall and disregarded hair clippings. The remainder was exposed all soiled and damp like a burial ground eroding close to a shore somewhere. The remainder were post-it notes.

February 1 2007 I like movies about super-heroes, bank heists, those struggling with faith and/or playing G_d. Or films about politicians with something to lose, child prodigies, reclusive musical geniuses, the CIA, IRA, FLQ, PLO, BMO, PTA, SOS but not films about yuppie couples having trite revelations about the differences between men and women, or films in which too many of the characters have codenames or nicknames like snake, gadget, tinker, ace, goose or spike (please consider love of super-hero films and exception to this rule). Huge aversion to non-Scottish actors doing Scottish accents (esp. if strictly for comedy). You see everyone thinks cause they've seen a couple oatmeal commercials they can do a good Aberdeen or whatnot. Not the case. K

January 30th 2007 A big thanks to dad telling me sometimes he wishes he could get drunk but he has no interest after dinner. Explaining an addiction to cigarettes to someone who has never smoked is bound to make one feel like a dipshit. if there are any addiction stories out there- anyone send it. you can get all bent out of shape bent out of shape bent out of shape for sure wanna see. over K

Last night 4 people killed in rain storm panic during fireworks display on the streets beside the Duna. 2 were crushed by a tree, 1 vanished in the river. trams stopped running because of flooded streets and fallen trees. Istenem! It was also a national holiday,  Horrorshow.

Also, over here a month ago some construction workers found a 100 kg unexploded soviet bomb from World War II in the renovation site of one of the train stations. Things we leave behind from troubled times.

Apologies, been a while since my last transmission.

My Uncle Ray always says –mind how you go, even if you are just stepping out to the newsagent.

Sean and I always say „Safe Home” when parting company after drinks. Part from a couple of times he always seems to offer me cab fare(even if I’m on my bike), and though I think I decline almost %100 of the time, I appreciate this a great deal.

Jenn Goodwin always says „Look Alive!” to me, and I often respond with: „They’re in the trees!”. This always makes me laugh. We worked on a dance piece together once, and that came out of it somehow.

I’ve noticed that my friend Heather Lash often closes her more serious correspondences with „as ever,”. This indicates a solidity of character that I admire greatly.

I have become fond of closing with „until, ”. It leaves something out there for later I guess.

When Sam and I go our separate ways, for some reason it is always orange.

„So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish” should be on Douglas Adams’ gravestone if it isn’t already.

Bye now,

Don’t take any wooden nickels…

I am reading a book right now called "Manchester United Ruined My Life".

Thing about english football fans is that no matter where in the world they be, they will be louder and more passionate than anyone else in the room. Even when the team loses they will still chant as if their team had shut the other out. I think I both admire and am intimidated by their solidarity. Their singing voices are usually terrible but at least they know the words. Oh yeah and like Rooney stepped on that guy's crotch on purpose... Whatev!

so tourist offices play an important role for visitors and serve kind of like a one stop clearing house for general information and bookings for accommodation and activities. nearly every city and town- even the tiniest places- have its own tourist office and it's most often conveniently located near the train station, docks, starbucks or town centre. many offices run their own excursions or have close ties with local companies who fill that void. offices in smaller towns may be open only during peak summer months, while in cities they're open year round but with shorter hours in the off-season. for general brochures and books on travel, contact 694 7075, 1087 rue st jean, PQ ... s.

it seemed to me that you could fool just about anybody with the right amount of paint and compliments and perfume. i held up my right hand with a pocket dictaphone and recorded silence or noise and had everyone believe it was detroit or baghdad or vancouver or warsaw because ultimately the sounds of the streets don't really change that much. s.

Had a dream last night where I went to the video store. The guy who operates the video store said that I could browse around. But after a while I realise that the guests (a lot of grubby-cool Queen West types) for his dinner party are all starting to wake up in different corners of the room, but I’m still there, and I wasn’t invited. So, umm. Then when I was awake recalling the events to myself I wondered: Am I remembering this correctly? Why were the guests sleeping there prior to the party? Why were there no videos in that video store? I was just looking at the guys stuff, his tee-shirts, and knick-knacks.

Long distance run = 14th out of 16. Not bad, better in the pool though. Blacked out on the football pitch the other day. It was that innocent game boys play where one guy breathes really really fast bent over, and then when he comes back up another kid puts his hands around his neck and then the kid who breathed really really fast passes out right there. When you wake up your biting your tongue kinda, and you see these pretty little specks of light. Really really pretty specks of light.

Terribly dizzy this morning. Last night rent-a-cops found our hide-away spot. Nasty. Going back to school with heavy conscience. Fell asleep on blackboard during math class last week too. LeVay not impressed, time in the hall for discipline. Fit in? Not likely. I hate winter coats.
