aruba, jamaica, ooh i wanna take ya

Looks like the spam is back. Excellent.

On the chick list Liv has related that she has gotten a bunch of the people who stole her and Tim's stuff (I almost accidentally wrote "crap"-how rude!) arrested and now the police have advised her to stay out of Oak Park!!! That fucking sucks. And they didn't get hardly any stuff back. Someone should organize a benefit show. And that someone is Charles.

How was Lyme Regis?

Kickball Katy has issued a press release:

so tonight, the Sacramento Midtown Mob Squad will be playing the Denver Kickball Coalition.those crazy nuts bought a van and are on a nation wide kickball tour. two days ago was Salt Lake City. today, they'll feel the Sacramento heat.so, if you feel like advertising, that'd be awesome. if you want to show up, that'd beeven better. 21st and C. 6pm.we'll likely go drinking afterwards.

It's nice to be invited, but I'm going to the new Moroccan place tonight for Anna's bday, so I can't attend.

Speaking of Anna, she's the one who told me about the Sub Shack's new life. New owner, now they serve breakfast. I have to check this out. Supposedly the new guy is going to keep the old recipes, but just add stuff to the menu. This could be the best of all possible worlds (that is a weird expression now that I write it), because I've known for a while that the owner wanted to retire and I've lived in fear that it would become a Starbucks or something and the patio would be lost. So if he keeps the turkey sandwich the same but has extended hours, and if (dare to dream) the breakfasts are good it's almost like someone said "heckasac, how would you like me to change the Sub Shack so that it can become perfect". I'll try to go this weekend.

I don't have the patience to reformat these lyrics right now, but I wanted to print the lyrics to Kokomo, because I heard it on my way to work this morning and it was driving me nuts that there's a part that sounds like Mike Love (dick) is saying, "I want to make blah blah blah rotten steak" and I KNEW that couldn't be right. Turns out he's saying (and the Bananas already know this) To martinique, that monserrat mystique.


Aruba, jamaica ooo I wanna take you
Bermuda, bahama come on pretty mama
Key largo, montego baby why don’t we goJamaica
Off the florida keys
There’s a place called kokomo
That’s where you wanna go to get away from it all
Bodies in the sand
Tropical drink melting in your hand
We’ll be falling in love
To the rhythm of a steel drum band
Down in kokomo
Aruba, jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To bermuda, bahama come on pretty mama
Key largo, montego baby why don’t we go
Ooo I wanna take you down to kokomo
We’ll get there fast
And then we’ll take it slow
That’s where we wanna go
Way down to kokomo
To martinique, that monserrat mystique
We’ll put out to sea
And we’ll perfect our chemistry
By and by we’ll defy a little bit of gravity
Afternoon delight
Cocktails and moonlit nights
That dreamy look in your eye
Give me a tropical contact high
Way down in kokomo
Aruba, jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To bermuda, bahama come on pretty mama
Key largo, montego baby why don’t we go
Ooo I wanna take you down to kokomo
We’ll get there fast
And then we’ll take it slow
That’s where we wanna go
Way down to kokomo
Port au prince
I wanna catch a glimpse
Everybody knows
A little place like kokomo
Now if you wanna go
And get away from it all
Go down to kokomo
Aruba, jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To bermuda, bahama come on pretty mama
Key largo, montego baby why don’t we go
Ooo I wanna take you down to kokomo
We’ll get there fast
And then we’ll take it slow
That’s where we wanna go
Way down to kokomo
Aruba, jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To bermuda, bahama come on pretty mamaKey largo, montego baby why don’t we go
Ooo I wanna take you down to kokomo

you'd be surprised how many people will couples dance to this song when you sing it at karaoke. it kind of makes delivering it with gumption a little harder.

Lyme Regis was fun. We got Liv drunk enough to nearly forget her troubles and Lance and T-man had a foot race up P St. Lance won. The competition between them hasn't ended. There is talk of a triathalon of basketball, arm wrestling and sprinting at some point. There may even be a beard growing contest in the future.

I think Joey D. bought his smoke for the smoke machine on sale. Pretty stinky.

And, this one is for the nerd band lurking around here. http://www.dimensionsintime.com/

And in other news, This just in.

"it's done. It's official.

As of 2:30 this afternoon, Al and I have have signed the lease agreement to the 2 story building at 2315 K Street. [edit: 23rd St & K Street]

We have found the future new home for the True Love, part/chapter/version 2.

It's going to be months and months before we get open. From now until whenever, we have much planning, renovating, permit-getting and quite a bit of manual labor (digging, hauling, painting, planting) to do.

Anyone out there a planner? Architect? Plumber? Electrician? Local politician? We need some help :)

We now have an old C2-zoned house that we need to turn into a funky, vibrant, night-time coffeehouse.

Who's in?

For more information, check out the True Love Coffeehouse 2 blog at:

Thanks for all your support, thoughts and prayers!

glad to know that my prayers worked. i was beginning to wonder. now i can switch to praying for great harm to befall all my enemies and for little baby jessica to be safely delivered from that well.

how does the spam know how to type the word correctly? i can barely do it.

Dang, this is the center of entertainment knowledge sharing. Just to let people know, the Four Eyes blog and website are back up. So when Beckler goes all euro, we will be making fun of her and erasing it before she gets back.

Now I have Kokomo in my head.

A comic book store with a focus on Doctor Who? Looks like Becky isn't the only one who has had her prayers answered. Still, I give the store three months.

Al Jardine, one of the founding members of the Beach Boys, will be at the Borders Books in Folsom on September 9th. He wrote a children's book called Sloop John B: A Pirates Tale, which also includes an accompanying sing-along CD. Maybe he'll do a solo version of Kokomo!

Heckasac is the new undietacos!

Please tell me I'm better than that! I prefer to think that I'm the online version of Anna Karenina. Only better.

How about the online version of Anna Kournikova?

Heckasac you are as timeless and classic as Friendster...JK JK!!! No really, as I've noted before, you are like a lady Hard Harry.

beckler,
Mike R. Mike karaoke'd Kokomo last Friday night! Hearing him sing that was almost as good as him singing "I want it that way" by Backstreet Boyz.
