Stream of unconsciousness

About to be a groomsman at one of my best friends' weddings today. And, on an unrelated note, have an incredible craving for a doughnut.
The Zen philosopher Basho once wrote, 'A flute with no holes, is not a flute. And a donut with no hole, is a danish'. Funny guy.
Dreams over the last couple of days: 1. I was singing Prince's "Kiss" onstage, and was doing a damn decent falsetto if I may say so myself. (This was related, methinks, to reading an article about people who can't stop singing along to music.) 2. I was lying on a mattress on the floor, and there was a huge amount of water coming in through a gaping hole in the wall, and in order to avoid drowning I got up and moved to the bed, but the water kept rising, and I had to swim to the door.



I have a craving for jam-filled donuts that hasn't been fulfilled by the ones from Dunkin' Donuts across the Causeway. Do you know where to get them here? Yes, I'm spelling it as donuts; am lazy when I feel like it :)


Actually a donut without a hole is called a Berliner lol, full of raspberry jam and indundates your mouth when you bit into them, freshly baked from a bakery in Switzerland, closest thing to a donut in that country.


e - I have a craving for regular doughnuts, and I still don't know where to get a good one of those, let alone the jam-filled ones.

anon - Eddie Izzard had a whole bit in his standup routine on how JFK's "Ich bin ein Berliner" line confused all the listening Germans. I quote:

Lucky he didn't do a tour of Germany, eh? "I am a Hamburger, a Frankfurter, and a donut." But the people in Berlin must've gone,

"What did he say?"

"He said he was a donut!"

"I thought he said he was a donut too!"

"So what does that mean?"

"It's a slang! It's American! He's a donut! He's a fucking donut. Fucking donut, a fucking donut, a fucking donut. He's a fucking donut. I think that's what it must mean.”


You know, I think reservist has made you funnier. :)


Thanks mis_nomer!
