-took a little break to revive a linguistics project, in which i totally debunk the universal grammar theory in favor of my own: that the best model for human language is a good traffic jam...read it and weep. i devised it while cutting across the lawn in front of the pulliam clock-tower, combing my hair, taking in the peace of the japanese garden to my left, as i get down past the coal center, and the weeds climbing through the fence at the library construction parking. the minutes i save cutting across the lawn all go into my sandwich- though this term, i may have a couple extra (minutes, not sandwiches)...
-wrote a small play, monster of kanifloria, based on a fable, well loved at quaker meeting, and hopefully to be performed there. was invited to write plays for the unitarians, and might take them up on it. now there's a market, if you just talk playwriting biz. thousands of liberal/radical denominations, with christmas-play traditions, but eager to branch out...
-made a small all-cardboard mater (the toothy tow-truck in the movie cars)....this little feller has a real tow-rope, rearview mirror ears, turning wheels, etc. had to make him because we already had a cardboard dinocopter, and had to put something in it. got to get these on film. the 5-yr-old is hocking for a fillmore's geodesic dome...trying to figure out how to make that out of cardboard...
