fitzcarraldo is the zeitgeist

my dad told me about how he spend the entire day moving some pipe that had caused the house to floodin its malfunction

"it was great i was all in the mud wading around with my hands in the mud. i was like one of those people under the boat in fitzcarraldo!"
"thats so awesome, i wish my life was like that. was some crazy german was yelling at you while you were lying there dead? oh wait, that is my life!"
"it was so bad, you know how when youre down there it really smells? oh wait you dont. good bye"

in other days news, we have really really sentitive speakerphones. sometimes ill answer mine and the music wil be on in the background. john called today and i was listening to phish and it was crowd noise and he said "wtf? do you just play a soundtrack of people cheering for you while you work all day?!" i am very into this idea.

and lastly i told liz about how sometimes i get in this mood where i manically lov everyone and then i cant go to bed because im too happy about humanity. she offerred to make me a happy jar to put by my bed at night that i can put my happy in to go to sleep.
