finally- there is some snow down here in quakertown

it may have been camelot for jack and jacqueline
but on the che guevara highway filling up with gasoline
fidel castro’s brother spies a rich lady who’s crying
over luxury’s disappointment
so he walks over and he’s trying
to sympathise with her but he thinks that he should warn her
that the third world is just around the corner

in the soviet union a scientist is blinded
by the resumption of nuclear testing and he is reminded
that dr robert oppenheimer’s optimism fell
at the first hurdle

in the cheese pavilion and the only noise i hear
is the sound of someone stacking chairs
and mopping up spilt beer
and someone asking questions and basking in the light
of the fifteen fame filled minutes of the fanzine writer

mixing pop and politics he asks me what the use is
i offer him embarrassment and my usual excuses
while looking down the corridor
out to where the van is waiting
i’m looking for the great leap forwards

jumble sales are organised and pamphlets have been posted
even after closing time there’s still parties to be hosted
you can be active with the activists
or sleep in with the sleepers
while you’re waiting for the great leap forwards

one leap forward, two leaps back
will politics get me the sack?

here comes the future and you can’t run from it
if you’ve got a blacklist i want to be on it

it’s a mighty long way down rock ’n roll
from top of the pops to drawing the dole

if no one seems to understand
start your own revolution and cut out the middleman

in a perfect world we’d all sing in tune
but this is reality so give me some room

so join the struggle while you may
the revolution is just a t-shirt away
waiting for the great leap forwards

happy Christmas all.

not much happening here. finally i found someone who is more able it the mac world than myself. surely i am not amazing, only just recently switching from pc, but she is, and cute to boot. let's see... something gross happened at the gym. i was lifting a heavier weight than usual, and i needed a spotter. levi natrually whimped out on my that day, so i asked the nearest guy who didn't seem like it was his first time at the gym. sadly, i picked the sweatiest guy there. he thankfully wiped off his face, but as i got to the end of my set, one drop of sweat hit me squarley (or circularly since it was a drop) between the eyes. gross.

about time for a new job too. i am looking like no one's business. i am tried of working where i am, it is not that great. plus- i am worth more.

You seriously just made my night. I hope you find a new job soon, so you can rid yourself of your uncomfortable situation. YIKES. Glad you are happy about the snow...someone has to be! Oh, thanks for all the links!

that doesn't sound like fun at all, dude.

you can always move out here if you want. we've got an open couch.

yes, ever happy about the snow. anytime for those links.

you are right lucas- however, since i sleep on the floor, any chance you guys have a spare one of those?
