Wife getting me another pair of athletic shoes. I was just about to show my age and call them sneakers. At least I didn’t call them gumshoes
Downed the complimentary triple espresso at the auto dealer. Now I can express three times as much in 140 characters.
Another morning, another round of hiding/deleting stuff other people put on my Facebook timeline. It’s only for stuff I choose to put there.
Saw "The Last Word" on DVD. It was OK, but Shirley MacLaine, at age 83, is still bewitching. No mean feat.

RIP Shelley Berman. WashPost obit headline (”acted alongside Larry David”) feels random. Also did topical improv alongside Nichols & May.
This morning, I’ve tried Starbucks’ free Wi-Fi & McDonald’s free Wi-Fi. Honestly, I can’t tell the difference! #tastetest

Silicon Valley funded think tanks. They need to keep policymakers focused on economic drivers of innovation. Current POTUS is clueless there
This morning on social media: every artist everybody really REALLY gets into is a genius. All others are seriously overrated or pure crap.
