baltimore vs. northampton vs. self promotion

I have figured out the definitive difference between Baltimore and Northampton, which comes in the form of two opposing bagel prosciutto sandwiches. Northampton's bagel prosciutto sandwich comes with sliced green apples and sharp cheddar and dijon mustard and is on a wheat bagel. Baltimore's comes with cream cheese and tomatoes and is on a seasame bagel that somehow tastes like an onion bagel. Also the two visions of prosciutto are a little different: Northampton's is very thin and lean, while Baltimore's is thick and marbled. I don't even need to tell you about where to eat these bagels, the crowd in these eating places, or the streets outside, because simply telling you about these bagels tells you all that other stuff. These differences represent themselves without value judgments.

And speaking of Baltimore, PGP is doing a $5 Book of the Month January special on All Good. There are only a few January days left, so go spend a little bagel money there if you're not hungry right now.

Woodstar. Kill a yuppie and order it and run away and maybe kill another yuppie while you leave.

I just came here to say I've been thinking "Turn at the bridge you make -" When you lie down? With your body? Either way, thank you.

Hi Teapot! Thanks for coming by! At the risk of totally ruining something by geeking out: I like the phrase "Turn right at the bridge you make by lying there" because it's got two of my favorite Englishly ambiguous words in it: right and lying. I like to imagine the phrase means both lying there with your body and lying like not telling the truth, and turning right like direction and turning right like turning away from wrong. Or even I guess "turn as soon as you get to." Also it's funny because it's impossible to turn anywhere over a bridge if the bridge is made out of yourself. So yeah, geeking out over an insane amount of polysemy. That's me. Thanks for coming to the reading and this here blogger blog. =)
