it's cold outside. i know because i walked home last night, and i plan to walk to homer's in a few minutes. thankfully there doesn't appear to be any wind. when it gets cold like this, i know more people will congregate at homer's for warmth and hot drinks. hopefully you will be one of them. cheers.

"i'll meet you at homer's" must be something that is said ALOT between friends, because it happens all the time. one of those times it was kinda cold outside, so i was surprised to see two opposite types of footwear. one of the women had just come from getting a pedicure, and the other one (paige) was dressed for the weather. they could have been felix and oscar.

the ss edmund fitzgerald was a freighter that became the stuff of legend after it sank on this day in 1975. if it hadn't been for gordon lightfoot's song, and the radio stations that played it, i wouldn't know its story. gordon lightfoot wrote other songs i never heard because they were eclipsed by his hits. i had to dig to find this.

today is hermann rorschach's birthday. he was a swiss freudian psychiatrist best known for creating the inkblot test aka the rorshach test to examine personality characteristics. kinda makes me wonder what diagnosis he would make for baristas who create this stuff on a daily basis.

friday night at homer's means LIVE MUSIC! and tonight it's coming from james thomas. if you're wondering what kind of music he plays, check out the mp3's on his website. he also lists Butch Walker, Starfield, Leeland, Feeder, Switchfoot, Guster, and Elliott Smith for a few influences.

this pic was found recently at homer's. the only thing on the back is the number 43. this guy looks familiar but no one knows who it is. do you? is it you? any information that unlocks this mystery will result in a free drink, or at least extra punches on a free drink card. we now pass the burden of identification on to you, dear reader.

one of our regular patrons (and his wife) brought a trick or treater during the midday shift yesterday. i recognized the costume from a video game: toad from mario bros. apparently toad is a citizen of the mushroom kingdom, and a loyal attendant to princess peach. i forgot to ask the dog's name.
