I love being all alone, all by myself shut in my office clacking away on my computer or reading a dirty book. I sometimes wonder, if I ever got locked up for carnal knowledge of a way too young armadillo, if solitary confinement would be as awesome as it sounds. It's not because I generally don't like people. I do like people, in very small amounts, but always try to leave room for dessert. All kidding aside, for a few sentences, my main reason for the love of solitude; there's no distractions or sidetracks from things that my mind insists must get done in a timely fashion. Whenever other folks are nearby, my focus turns to entertaining , or keeping an eye on them to make sure they don't try to pilfer my grandma's ashes...to step on a kilo of cocaine with. That reminds me. Today is the anniversary of the Stones releasing their last great album (they've had good records since) 1978's Some Girls. Plus good ol "slide on this" Ronnie Wood was by then an official member of the greatest rock 'n' roll band ever. So of course I'll have ya'll listen to my favorite Keef song from that disc.
