Common Sense

According to John Reis,
One issue in philosophy of mind
Is how separate strands of experience
End up being combined.

Snoozing to the News

I don’t want to be impeached.
I don’t want to be impeared .
I wouldn’t mind being immangoed,
If some of those can be spared.

Orlando Might Have Been A Better Choice

I went to Minneapolis
In search of Minnie Mouse.
My efforts were quite hapless
And I failed to find her house.

She’s the Quiet Type

When you’re barking at the Moon,
Expect no answer soon.

Not That Marathon

I've been idly pondering what my main autumn marathon should be this year, and I was thinking about the Des Plaines River Trail marathon, which gets abbreviated as DPR Trail Marathon, and I googled DPR marathon, and I was wondering why the heck I was seeing ads for a marathon in PYONGYANG, wherever THAT was...

Oh, it's the capital of North Korea. And the search engine saw DPR and thought maybe I had in mind the DPRK - Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Yipes. They have a marathon in April.

Well, I've never been to that country.

I shall continue that trend.
I plan to not attend.

Weekend in the Twin Cities

I'm guessing I doubled or tripled my lifetime "driving over the Mississippi" tally.

Saw the art museum, which is worth a visit, particularly for all the Asian art they have out, including some rooms that give you a sense of what the architecture ends up feeling like on the inside.

Yes, it was colder than Chicago. It's about 400 miles northwest of here, so that figures.

I didn't see any really bad parts of town. I like the alliteration of "mean streets of Minneapolis," but I kept finding nice streets. Which I think goes along with the typical Chicagoan impression that Minneapolis is a more wholesome.

The Mississipi starts as a trickle
Flowing out of Lake Itasca.
But it's already at St. Paul.
So how is that, I ask ya?
