What Day Is It?

I despair for this neighborhood. Everyone's constantly and brazenly drunk except for the schoolchildren - and even they drink alone in their rooms. I want to move to a different neighborhood, a neighborhood that is simple, benign, flowing with a kind of human milk. Specifically, I'm thinking of the Amish with their quilts and their poliomyelitis and their refusal to golf. Is that what I want for myself? Maybe, but do the quilts have to be so colorful? I can't sleep under a quilt that has more that five colors - it keeps me awake.

Oh yeah? And what's wrong with brazen drunkenness? Huh? Huh?

Nothing. In fact, I'm drunk right now.

Buy yourself a car and move to Maple Grove -- they have a Joe's Crab Shack there.

What would keep you awake sleeping under an Amish quilt would be the price.

If you drink enough, the colors won't be so disturbing. The spinning room will take over that function.

While there is a famous mathematical puzzle describing the minimum number of colors required to make a map, I don't think 5 is too many colors for a quilt. And to make a map do what, you ask? Heck, if it has less than 5 colors I think you could shame it into doing most anything, poor low-self-esteem-4-or-less-color map that it would be.
