i'm lurking on sunshine

seriously though.
is there a difference between Walking and Lurking?
some would argue that a Lurk is a specific kind of Walk but i thinks it's all about appearances, because when you get right down to it, Lurking is just Walking with a hint of assumed negativity.
Walking is what healthy people do after supper.
Lurking is what child molestors do after supper.
big difference? no. if you didn't know that Child Molestor Steve was a child molestor, you'd just think he was going for a healthy after supper Walk like everyone else.
but because you know him and because he happens to be Walking by the elementary school, he is now seen as Lurking.
which is apparently what bad guys do instead of Walking.
somewhere down the line Lurking got a nasty stigma of wrongdoing attached to it.
maybe if we started using the word in more positive ways we could turn this around.
some people Walk to raise money for disease research.
Walk for the Cure, they call it.
why not call it Lurk for the Cure?
you'd be doing the same thing.
the disease you're raising money to cure might even be an incurable disease, like Herpes or The Summertime Blues. (in fact, Herpes is a known cause of The Summertime Blues, making it Double Incurable.)
i'm getting off subject here.
i think i'll take a break and Lurk downtown for some coffee.
maybe call Denise, see if she wants to go for a nice, brisk Lurk along the waterfront.

Feb 25th, at the venue known as the "attic" theres a show, I, can in good faith, recommend.

even if yo dont dig the rocka/psychobilly all that much, the gutter demons are a sure ticket.
