near the front of the bus, a deaf and blind man sat and, with the help of another bus patron such as myself, he was trying to get to a destination somewhere in fife. someone had dropped off this man at a bus stop to get to a storage unit. he had the name written on a piece of paper, but no one had ever heard of it. after a call to 411, someone found something with a similar name. after speaking to the business, they discovered that something was amiss, due to the fact that there was no storage units at said business.

every time the bus stopped, which he obviously felt, he reached out his hand to the man on the bus who was helping him, expecting it to be his stop. that man grabbed the deaf and blind man's hand every time to let him know, "no, not yet." the helping man, however, reached his stop, and got off. but still, every time that bus stopped, the deaf and blind man reached his weathered, wrinkly hand out for someone who wasn't there. i thought about that hand. it looked cold, and, oddly, it looked wise. it looked like that hand could tell more stories than the man himself. i wanted to go up and help the man, but the front of the bus was full; standing room only. so i figured "oh, someone will help him. there's a couple of people still up there who knew his situation." but no one helped him. every time he reached out, there wasn't a soul there to grab it.

we drove through fife, obviously far past his destination, if it was in fact even there. we drove all the way to the transit center on commerce street. a few stops prior, the bus driver had phoned pierce transit to let them know of the man, who was need of "special assistance." the driver directed him off the bus when we got there, and handed him off to two pierce transit staff.

i sit here wondering what ever happened to that man. did he ever reach his destination? did he just give up and go home? who would just drop him off and leave him? more importantly, i wonder how one can be so trusting to the point where they depend on total strangers for help? i imagine it's a hit and miss thing. i'm thinking about the amount of times on the bus that he reached out and no one grabbed his hand to help compared to the times someone, one person, did. i wish i could i have been closer to him, to grab his hand, to let him know someone cared and someone was there to help.

i had a job interview today. i got asked back for a second interview on friday. not too shabby. once again, a job that i don't want to do, but this one i won't mind so much. much better pay and benefits. i'm confused though because the office might not be dupont, but in oregon? about 45 minutes south of Portland. at least that's where the chick who's going to interview me is coming from. i've heard contradicting things, so we'll see.

In the music news today:

Ol' Dirty Bastard aka ODB aka Big Baby Jesus died at 35 years old. Cause of death, still to be determined.


Death Cab for Cutie signed to Atlantic Records. Read about it here. I don't know how I feel about that quite yet. According to Ben, the only change being made is: "Next to the picture of Barsuk holding a 7”, there will be the letter “A” on both the spine and back of our upcoming albums." But I think we've all heard similar comments from other bands in similar situations.

random thoughts.

i love the kickstand. i love it even more when every day for the past week i've run into mario and those kids. i think tonight was the first night in the past week that i didn't run into them. but i did go earlier than normal.

aaron sprinkle covering the cure = pure delight. i've been listening to a lot of him lately. probably because i saw him live and it inspired me to listen to more of it.

i am a schmuck. people should deal with it and move on.

i need to shave my beard. or trim it. or something. it's getting burly.

death cab is tomorrow night. yay for that. yay for free tickets.

i am skipping out on a day and a half of work this week. on top of that, veteran's day is thursday, so no work that day either.

my car should be getting fixed this week. pluses: i have a car. no more bus. no more walking. no more mooching rides. i can have a "normal" social life. minuses: it'll be a "birthday gift" from my dad. there's other things i'd rather get for my birthday than a new alternator. i don't really have money for insurance. gas money.

hmph, that is all.
