      Thank you my friend! Happy you enjoy it: I like the name of your site, as I’m playing with memory myself these days. It’s a funny thing. Thanks for the note and stopping by. Best, Bill

    I await the service representative with the hoodie on my porch. Perhaps he/she/it can explain why pink and why lightsabre.

      Not sure if this translates, but have you ever sat around with friends drinking wine and conspiring on hypothetical punk band names? That explains this, that’s all I have. No Joy Division, nothing so stark. Thanks for asking Joy, Bill

        Yes I have, and yes that makes perfect sense now. I only wish I could remember some of the band names my friends and I came up with over the years (I think we get bonus points for actually jamming in the basement after such discussions; nobody should have ever given me a mic). But I can’t remember, sadly. Did I mention that drinking was involved? Ah, that might explain it. Glad you remembered yours.

        Ha, well I’m glad you get it then, Joy, the drinking adds a special polish to things. Bill

    Oy! This isn’t my father’s About page! (apologies to Oldsmobile) And how apropos, that I’m reading this after having read your Jan 27 post on Orwell and 1984.
    Now I know what this blogsite will be about, I’ll tarry no further in taking my leap of fate. Onward through the slog! (Er… Onward through the _blog_!)
