A blonde walks in to a pawn shop. She looks around for a while and then approaches the clerk. ''I would like to buy that TV over there.''
The clerk says ''I am sorry lady we don't serve blondes here.''
The blonde leaves in a huff. The next day she returns wearing a brunette wig. ''I would like to purchase that TV over there.''
Again the clerk says ''Lady I told you yesterday we do not serve blondes here.''
Now the blonde is furious. The next day she dresses like a man (a suit, tie, mustache, etc.).
She approaches the clerk and says in a deep voice, ''I would like to purchase the TV over there!''
The clerk says ''Lady I told you twice already we do not sell to blondes here!''
She says to the clerk ''How can you tell? Yesterday I wore a wig, today I am dressed like a man, how can you tell it is me??''
He laughs and says, ''Because that's a microwave!!!!''

Mundane Journeys through an Amazing World
begins with Interstate 80. Not the most engaging topic, I know, but when you think about it, I-80 runs all the way across the North American continent linking San Francisco and New York. It's not just a ribbon of asphalt, it's a portal to far away, almost magical places.
My visits to major cities like Tokyo, London and Washington DC have been business affairs. I haven't rode a lot of roller coasters or ridden in open air buses, but I have visited with senators, bought yams from the back of a truck and barely escaped complete embarrassment when I was introduced to Matt Wiener in Vegas.
As I wrote the book I realized that over the years exotic, distant places have become more like the mundane places I've called home. But, as it turns out, there really aren't any mundane places, only mundane ways of looking at things.

the world... nutty.
