Work has proved to be fairly draining today and my thoughts move like someone has emptied the entire contents of a honey jar in my head.....oh well, this is a far better replacement

    I enjoyed your writing in the previous post. I had to comment on the quote here though. My brother had put that quote in his high school yearbook (he was a drunk at a very early age), but he attributed the quote to Opus in the comic strip Outland (by the creator of Doonesbury). I just did some searching on the internet to find the source of the quote, and I found out that it is often mistakenly attributed to Tom Waits, and that the original author of the quote is a doctor from Atalanta, Georgia, USA (also a songwriter) named Dr. Randy Hanzlick. I have too much free time on my hands, obviously. Here is where I got that info: http://www.chiasmus.com/typesofchiasmus/phonetic.shtml

    Thanks for the correction. Will make the necessary adjustments.....when I saw who the quote had been attributed to, it did seem to not quite fit Tom Waits, so I guess I know why now.
    Thanks again

    Oops, now I have to correct myself. The comic strip I was referring to was actually Bloom County, not Doonesbury.
