03: upper Mission Valley bikeride - I ride the winds to the east and fight them with the Trolley.
04: not a morality play - If this was a late-90s morality play, then the black guy we had over tonight would have been a picture of subtlety and coolness.
05: Jenna the German Girl and David Lynch - She sees 'Wild at Heart' and thinks it's 'weird'.
06: imperfect vacation - I try to relax at home without my girlfriend, but then the phone starts ringing.

23: early evening ending - The night concludes early with passionate sex.
24: not liking House Music - It's Eric the Defense Engineer's favourite music.
25: Italian artist guy - .
26: painting to the Cardigans - It's not much like sweating to the oldies.
