I have this homenode [] of little consequence on Perl Monks [] that you probably have no interest in whatsoever.

I also have some modules [] on CPAN [] some of which are marginally [] more [] useful [] than others.

I Don't Want A Pickle

[ #37563 ]

Once upon a time there was a marine base. And it was decommissioned. And there was some discussion over what to do with the space left by the decommissioned marine base. Some people wanted an airport, some people wanted a park. There was a vote. And the park people won.

And Arlo Guthrie played while a big orange balloon went up and down. And everyone who "thought that guy was dead"[1] got to hear Alice's Restaurant (for free!), and lots of other songs and stories, and it was funny, and entertaining, and a wonderful time was had by all. But we didn't get there early enough to get passes for the Orange Balloon :-(

So a few weeks later, we went back earlier to get passes, rode the Orange Balloon, and listened to some more music (a "Wartime Radio Revue", which was cool, but not Arlo Guthrie... :-), and a wonderful time was had by all (again) :-)

[1] I called my wife Friday morning when I heard on the radio about the show:

  • Me: "Hey, Arlo Guthrie is playing tomorrow night"
  • Her: "Isn't he dead?"

The first thing he said onstage was "I bet some of you heard about this and said "I thought that guy was dead..."
