Almost there...

Last night I became an official Goat, and I have the pin to prove it. I am now an official Goat Hill Morris Dancer. What's more, I'm also a squirrel. The team is so small this yeat that squire duties have been divided between 3 people, and I took on the job of contact to the outside world. So if anyone wants Goat Hill Morris to show up somewhere, they arrange it through me. Anyway, in the process of division, they decided that the title of squire didn't quite work anymore, so now there are three squirrels. I'm getting a whole totem full of animals and all I really wanted to do was to learn how to dance!

In related news, Sherman joined the team last night. I picked him up from the Daly City BART station in something of a Comedy of Errors since traffic on 280 was patently awful last night. Sherman was riding the shuttle from his office, and consequently got to read his new book, "Bowling Alone". It's all about the demise of community life in America. Interesting topic, and one I'm quite fond of reading about, so I'll be forced to pick up a copy of it after I finish reading the one I'm reading called "Extraordinary Groups". It's a study of various communities in America: The Oneida Community, the Gypsies, the Father Divine Movement, the Mormons, the Jehovah's Witnesses, etc. Fascinating stuff. For better or worse, my book is a library book. It's so good though that I'm just going to have to buy it. Dang it. I thought borrowing from the library might be a way to get my reading done with less expense. Hah!
