thursday, 11

I was so delighted to see the other day that someone else noticed, and sent a message to The Commercial Appeal, about an establishment on Highway 64 by the name of Galleria Kidney. A friend and I passed that place not long ago and were intrigued as well. I wanted to stop in to see if they also carried livers, thinking of trading mine in, but figured I would be met with the same wor ried stare I encountered when I drove my last car onto a lot to trade it in, with no breaks, a horrible grinding noise, and a collapsed convertible ragtop rendered that way by my trying to park underneath the cab of an 18-wheeler truck. Don t even ask. What s even better than Galleria Kidney, however, is an establishment just a few minutes east, also on Highway 64. It s a little cinderblock building, and the sign reads, simply, Two Blondes with a Dream. There s no other signage that actually lets you know what kind of busi ness this is. I figured maybe two blondes simply had a dream, told each other about it, and thought it would be a good idea to start a support group for other blondes who have dreams. Nah, just kidding. I have nothing against blondes. And speaking of blondes, I saw a great television commercial the other day for a new L Oral product called Endless Platinum. Endless Platinum in Memphis could be great news for a lot of club-going men here and the reason for divorce for many frustrated wives whose husbands habitually work late. And speaking of frustration, my fellow cult mem bers and I have been very upset lately with syndicated health columnist Dr. Peter Gott, who seems to have a penchant for answering really strange medical questions. He did have a pretty good one not too long ago about some bowel problems and advised the writer to schedule certain times for evacuations, but for the most part he has been quite dull of late. He did come through Mon day for a writer whose husband s testicles had tripled their normal size after a vasectomy and whose doctor indicated there was nothing wrong. Nothing wrong? Come again. The poor guy is walking around with testicles roughly the size of small honeydew melons and nothing is wrong? That s enough to drive someone nuts. Dr. Gott set her straight and suggested that a sinificant permanent increase in testicular size means the services of a specialist are in order. Thank you. Maybe the guy can find a Galleria Testicle somewhere and get that little -- well, big -- problem taken care of and keep us all posted. In the meantime, here s a brief look at some of what s going on around town this week. Today is, of course, the anniversary of the September 11th attacks, and there are some spe cial services being held. They are listed in the following pages under a special heading. Tonight, The Reigning Sound and The Rogers Sisters are at the Hi-Tone. And Andy Grooms Living Room is at the Glass Onion.

    I've been trying not to write much about Donald Trump because the idiot is getting way too much publicity, but I figured not many people pay attention to me, so I'm not adding to the media frenzy that much when I state that I really do think he might be the Antichrist.
