Friends, I have a terrible admission to make.

You see, I come...

I come from Circus folk.

Oh sure, it's just a little light juggling at first and then there you are, up on the high wire without a net.

Metaphor?  I never met a 4 I wasn't grateful for.

So this weekend I put aside my foolscap and don my fool's cap and visit my Aunty Mame with the Clown dots under her eyes.  At 9 am tomorrow I'm leaving the house-

And all 27 of us are piling in the Shriner's car and hitting the road-

That's right-

I mention this to point out that I have a meatspace presence which I occasionally prioritize.

Now what will you notice?  Nothing.  TDS/TCR is already done for this week with NO volunteers!


This is not a casual visit.  At 9 am Saturday I'm setting up the sound for the big Circus Parade where I revisit my sordid past as a DJ.  In between times I have Yeongam (with Qualifying) and 10 Playoff games.

All in addition to your usual amusements.

I will be accompanied by enchanting women.  I will dine in the best restaurants and drink the finest wine.  I will live life to the lees.

The long day wanes: the slow moon climbs: the deep
Moans round with many voices. Come, my friends,
'Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.

And then Monday you will have me again, rolling my rock.  Unless, of course, you help.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
