Woke with cold toes and a cold nose. Those nights get chilly in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. I thawed myself out with the help of Big S� heater unit, got the fingers working again and got back out on I-94 out to Minneapolis. I came in hot, passing up St. Paul and right into Minne. I cruised to Ryno�s, unloaded some gear and shot the shit a bit catching each other up on all thing pertinent.

Lunch was had at the Ideal Diner. It never changes.

Feels good to be in Minneapolis. I really dig it here. Reminds me of my school days here…as I pass up MCAD and old apartments and records stores and alley shortcuts. I have so many good memories from my time here. I look forward to making more.

It�s chilly, a brisk 50 degrees out. That�s how I like it.

I spent the better part of the day catching up on emails and projects. Turns out Ryno has an apartment complex next to him that offers free wireless to its tenants. I�ve managed to get a connection every couple hours, just long enough to check the email or read the headlines. Love that wireless action, goddamn.

My absentee ballot showed up in Michigan, and well, my Kerry vote will be heading back to Oregon soon enough. Every vote counts, let’s get that farce out of the White House once and for all.

Listen up all u buttkissers of draplin and his little stickers and booklets and indierock innuendos—listen up—coming soon the story of the term “porch”—how it was invented—what it means and what i went through with Draplin living in the same apt in alaska. Just ask draplin’s mom who said my last entry on aaron’s chafe was the best thing she had written on this site ever!
