Current mood: tired
Music: Stereolab, Transient Random Noise Bursts With Announcements
ront stoop of my apartment, day after Thanksgiving, 11/25/05
[As I was arriving home, my eccentric neighbor Ellie was just leaving her building.]

Ellie: [waves at me]
Me: Oh, hey, how ya doing?
Ellie: Good. How 'bout you?
Me: Good!
Ellie & me: [awkward pause while I hunt for something else to say.]
Ellie: Thank you!
Me: [pause] uh... you're welcome!
Ellie: Thanksgiving, and all.

Fun Fact:

Eric McFadden sang "These Are The People In My Neighborhood" to me on the corner of Fulton and Divisadero. Right on.

Nowadays seems like I have those pauses with a lot more than just my casual acquaintances.

Well, anyway, at least Ellie had a creative solution.
