It means "Do you remember..."

I was reminded that today is the anniversary of Hüsker Dü's first show in 1979.

"Could You Be The One"

"Celebrated Summer"

Here they are on "Good Company," a ridiculous local daytime talk show. The married hosts, "Steve & Sharon," play themselves on TV in Fargo.

He comes back with THAT?!

The thing about neglecting the blog for so long is then there's pressure to come up with something good. Surely something must have happened of interest. The illogic is that you can save up 60+ posts of daily mundanity and turn them into one awesome asskicker.

Well, no. Because the most interesting thing I can think of is how I slipped on a banana peel in February. T'was more of a skid, not a slip or olde-tyme pratfall, but still, WTF. How does that happen
a. in the middle of winter
b. on a sidewalk in a midwestern college town
c. in 2008
d. to an actual person?

Not much else to report. The house will be paid off in two months. The glee at seeing just four figures remaining on a mortgage statement is beyond comprehension.

There's also a potentially Very Cool Thing that I don't want to jinx. It'll be resolved a week from Sunday, either way.
