    (I shall now be appending “and despair” to my tweets the way one used to add “in bed” or “with a goat.” Or perhaps I’ll just use all three. “You will have a tumultuous future. In bed. With a goat. And despair.”)

    [Fishes about in wallet. Plucks out slips of paper saved from recent lunches in Chinese restaurants.]

    The time is right to make a new friend in bed with a goat — and despair.

    Everything will now come your way in bed with a goat — and despair.

    It’s the dash of bitters that add the hint of despair, Joel. That and Wisconsin.

    While there’s still an hour or more of light, I may just cross the border into Wisconsin and drive up to Dickeyville. And despair.

    I would like to have Dickeyville as an address. Also, I’m reminded of Merlin in Boorman’s “Excalibur.” If not a direct quote, “Look into the eye of the dragon and despair.” I hoped to find a link to a clip, what I found was a link to the Prelude to Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde. Part of the soundtrack of Excalibur and more recently to Von Trier’s “Melancholia.”

    Look into the eye of Von Trier. In bed. With a goat. And despair.
