A note from Sandy Chan

This bizarre and potentially disturbing stream-of-consciousness to do list was found near Piedmont Avenue in Oakland:


Much of it is hard to construe, but here is my best attempt at a transcript:

glue traps - Indian meal moth traps -

bring in closed files
file that by self

Roe anal - 10 x undead
lax repeat? - used up lots -
Brenda/Kim/Mothra bun -
metal teeth

clearer -
the list
Mel Piedmont

Wallace Lan
- called 911

cancer softie
heart attack

go to toilet

Ok...I pretty much lost it when I read "my sexuality is crying." I've gotta stop coming here while I'm at work....

i think the line:

Wallace Lan
- called 911

is what gets me . . . that sh*t is wierd, tho.

Personally, I like reading down the crazed ramblings only to find the quaint bear cub sniffing a flower while a butterfly flutters around its head. Reminds me of the scene in Werner Herzog's MY BEST FIEND in which oft-angry Klaus Kinski smiles at the screen as a butterfly lands on him, gracefully juxtaposing insanity and beauty in much the same way as this note.

I'm in love with "My sexuality is crying."
I've started using it as my signature for work-related e-mail:
"Let me know if you need anything else.
My sexuality is crying,
Mike Mc"

I think it is actually "file drabby self" - but I might just be projecting.

Also, 10x undead makes MY sexuality cry.

My first read is "fire drabby self". Brilliant.
