Gymmen er ferdig
svett er ben og arm
kaster av meg klæa før je ær i garderoben
går i dusjen - vatne er varnt når je æ varm.

Vi står å skravle litt
"siste gymtimen iår"
...vatne i bassenget er aldri så varmt...
å je har enda itte bade nakjin i år.

Men Lars Gunnar jobba å
han er itte mindre sliten
dusjen hass er itte kall den hell
han ser mot bassenget, mæ smil i øua
sien: "Ska vi ta et bad, ell?"
Ingen protestere, nei
Snart er det flere i bassenget
Ingen treng å spørja meg.

"Dæ va gått" sa alle sammen
når vi påklædde att sto
det var kaldt å godt å nervøst
tenk om noen plutsli slo
opp ei ta alle døren
lærern ell kanskje jenten
vi svømte nakjne i bassenget
en god følelse - vi alle kjenten.

Men dætta var inne
Tenk på stranda:
Mæ bris som puste.
Mæ sol som slikke.
Mæ flere lærere å jenter.

What the hell?
I admit it. I am addicted to this Blog and Blogging in general. I check it more than i should and I am constantly thinking about what to post later. I also check our hit count meter more than a man should and I am amazed at how many people come to us based on the search "Skinny Dipping Pics." Is it a summer thing? Is it because they know how much I love to skinny dip?

Well, tomorrow I promise to include some actual "Skinny Dipping Pics." We must live up to our potential.

i'm on a week-long break/vacation/whateveryouwannacallit right now, but thought i'd throw this out there really quick...

i was at this bar last night on Haight Street called the Toronado (my new favorite bar in San Francisco), sort of a mirco-brew beer bar kind of place. i took a look-see in the juke box and what was there but 'It's The Black-Eyed Snakes.' i dropped a 5-spot in and played the whole album.

it's a small, small world.

I'm Canada baby.

You're Canada!

People make fun of you a lot, but they're stupid because you've got a much better life than they do. In fact, they're probably just jealous. You believe in crazy things like human rights and health care and not dying in the streets, and you end up securing these rights for yourself and others. If it weren't for your weird affection for ice hockey, you'd be the perfect person.

Gobble Gobble, Moo.
We did it. LumpyG, Ca-chee and I did it. We went to Gigli and thank god for good friends to share such a horrible movie. We were lucky to be the only folks in the theatre so our running commentary did not annoy anyone.

On the positive side Growlers are legal in Minnesota now and the 20 minute J. Lo yoga scene will have your sides splitting with laughter.

Go to this movie. You will regret it but then we can laugh about it for years.

*Oh, I made a video a while back for the Black-eyed Snakes and you can see it here.

Getting Gigli with it
I would post something here, but I have been through enough.

I wanna see Gigli.

I don't know why. I don't like Ben Affleck so much nor do I give a cat's ass about J. Lo but I want to go see Gigli. Who's in?

I am free tomorrow night and Friday night unless my father comes to town. I'll bring the pocket pals.

just a perfect day
Ah, the weather capped it off and made it a Perfect Duluth Day indeed. Started with a house party last night in West Duluth, with a friend’s band up from Chapel Hill Eyes to Space. They couldn’t get a regular gig because it was Boozefest weekend and… they weren’t a blues band, oh well bad timing. The house party was a riot however. Then today got to show off the city to a buncha southerners who all agreed they wanted to move here (of course this is not February so it’s easy to tempt people this time of year). Finally the weather was perfect for a few hours of playing in the surf at park point, nice big waves and the water wasn’t cold at all.

New Black-Eyed Site

Just a quick note to say that the new Black-Eyed Snakes site is nearly done. If any of you "wordy" types can scan it looking for dangling participals or fragmented malipropisms that's be great! Email me with Mistakes, Content or Random Vicious Diatribe.

Cabin Rules.
Things I like about cabin weekends.

1. Jumping off the dock at a full run. Please check the water depth before you jump.

2. Skinny dipping.

3. Getting up early and making the first pot of coffee. I did not do this but I was the 4th up and enjoyed that first pot.

4. Having dinner at 11PM with candlelight and the sound of Loons.

5. Falling asleep to the sound of laughter and beer bottles being opened.

6. Sneaking away to the quiet part of the island and listening to the wind.

7. Naps.

8. Reading the last 10 issues of Cabin Life.

9. Hiding the evidence.

10. Packing up, the final swim and the long drive home on back roads.
