dignified and old

Well, that made my heart stop for a second. Yeah, everyone's making fun of this (with some justification -- check out the deeply freaky photo business website) but still, distant echoes down the corridor of time, or however it goes.

(Also, tell people -- for whatever reason: desperate for coerced conversation filler at the bus stop, moments of unguarded weakness, I'd say drunkenness but that excuse disappeared for me on April 1 2002 -- anyway, tell anyone, anywhere, that you're writing a novel set in Seattle and they will assume three things --

1) It's about Microsoft
2) it's about Kurt Cobain
3) it's about yuppies

Bonus: "Isn't there already a television show about that?")
