Magic Ticket

There was something blue on the floor of a diner I ate at the other day. I usually don't pick shit up off of diner floors but I liked the color blue of this thing so I picked it up. Flipped it over and it was a ticket. A ticket to "Admit One Adult" to the Circus that was coming to town. Now c'mon, if that's not fate I don't know what is. Plus, you don't understand, my fiancée loves the circus. So double fate on you, sucka. Couple weeks later I took her to see it. Not a fancypants Cirque Du Soleil circus, mind you, and not a carnival - a circus. A blow-through-town circus. But a real ace one. Boy, it was like sorcery. Like a dream. I can't get the image out of my head of the aging Ring Master with his back turned to me, a giant embroidered tiger crawling over his shoulder and down to the tails of his worn cutaway coat, gloved hand stretching eerily through the machine-made fog toward the next act. The image keeps crashing into me, popping like a blown light bulb.

I am enjoying your blog and your sense of humor, but don't believe this latest entry fits. Not trying to be mean, just suggesting that you have ANOTHER blog for these seemingly random entries.

Keep up the great humor.

You lucked out, my friend. Usually when fate sends someone to a carnival or circus, they don't come back, not sane anyway. :)

Cheers to your good fortune! Did the circus have a midway?

Spectacular imagary; I could hear the music and feel the wind of whirling trapeeze. Plus I was once attacked by a embroidered tiger, so that made it all the more real to me

So you don't usually pick up shit of the diner floor unless you like it's color? Admit it. You ALWAYS pick up shit off the diner floor. Unless it's the check.

Hmmm, sounds like some stoned hippy hi-jacked your blog for a few hours. Only kidding.

Hm, you might be on to something, Jacob. ;-)

Just kidding, Jay! Love your blog.

Hi Jay,

love your blogsite, and I'm sure he means no offense (and I'm sorry Tim), but my site is even more all over the place and it's supposed to be a spiritual journey (!) Unfortunately I keep hopping on and off the path, too, via alcoholism, naturism, IKEA, before getting back to God! And I hazard a guess that building an extension - well, practically a new house ! - is much the same thing! Keep up the good work, Jay and Tim is right, keep up the great humour.

Take Care

I really liked your use of words. I am a new blogger and I hope that my writings become as vibrant as yours. Great sense of humor..which is something I believe the world is lacking.

First I want to say thanks for checking out my blog and linking to it. I've just recently started doing this and have started to read The Last Nail. Great humor, however, the last entry makes me wonder...were mushrooms on the menu? Keep up the great post.

Your post is, TOO, on the subject! Lightbulbs blow all the time in house projects. Post whatever you want; it is your blog, and I'll visit regularly.

I just placed my own blog and I was checking out the suggested blogs. Yours was the first one. Very interesting. I find it fate as well since I see that your blog has MS in huge letters and my blog is actually an offshoot from my online magazine which is a magazine for people with physical disabilities. Perhaps fate? Hmmm...

sorcery like a dream....

sorcery is the making of dreams and mind control. IMO its the use of drugs to confabulate dreams and altered states, wasn't that a movie? Yes. ((smile))
on the other hand brainwashing is the removal of repressed memories to clean out the cobwebs and can be very painful.
