Dodging the Man

I went out skateboarding the other night, but when I got to the park my kingpin broke. The kingpin, for all you neophytes out there, is the bolt that holds the truck hangers to the baseplate--trucks being the metal things that hold the wheels to the deck and allow you to turn. When my kingpin broke I was left high and dry, and I had to walk back to the house of my friend where the cat and I have been staying, this past while. It's probably just as well, since my foot has been sore all summer, and likely could use some more time to heal--not to mention my aging knees.

So I've been working as a custodian at my church for the week, replacing the regular custodian who is off running a marathon. I like mopping floors, sweeping and vacuuming. It's contemplative work, and my church has some really beautiful old stain glass windows. It's a tranquil environment. I might be well suited to working in a funeral parlor, now that I think about it. Wood, carpet, quiet and solemnity. Much better than the pasta factory. The temp agency is still trying to track me down to work more factory shifts, but so far I've evaded them.

The Evil Bob Dole is also trying to capture a Fakie Agent or two, in order to interrogate them and discover crucial details about the Fakiegrind Endtime Polka Party. So keep your eyes open, and don't take candy, CDs or chewing gum from any strangers.

I cannot stress enough that your security is one of our PRIMARY goals. Please avoid spinning, especially in front of mirrors, especially in the dark. Additionally, treat all fire hydrants with extreme caution. For fire control? More like, for Fires-Of-The-Lower-Blogosphere Control. We're certain they contain cameras and are part of E.B.D.'s intelligence network.

New information will be relayed to you as soon as it arises. Stay alert, stay safe.

P.S.: Hope the whole job thing works out alright.

Remember- the election is THIS Friday. All are welcome. Evil Bob Dole may support the complete destruction of the Earth, but he sure does love democracy!

Could that be because the two are implicitly related?
