The South Texas Germ Warfare Standard Deviation (Where CanI Get A Surrogate Brain?) Biological Flu Blues By Jolie Blond I'd gotten to feeling sophisticated, secure in myself, smug, and then I learned humility when brought down by a bug. The bug has got a hold of me, the doctors cannot kill it. My brain won't work, my nose won't stop, my throat burns like a cheap, worn skillet. I tried my mom's herbology, I starved and stuffed and pilled it. When whiskey failed to do its stuff, I hot tub tried to cook it out distillate. As strong and wise and educated as I had gotten to be, I couldn't even defend myself from this tiny viral flea. So if you're feeling superior to the day's circumstantial turns, just remember all your best laid plans can be altered by a germ.

Prose about a helium party balloon that lands in a vacant lot. Distributed by Tubemogul. Blue Balloon by Jolie Blond 10/07/01 Blue Balloon, hovering two feet over a brownish, overgrown vacant lot, like an off-color scarecrow, like an airhead sentinel guarding weeds. From where have you come, blue balloon? Did you escape the small, stubby fingers of a child, breaking her young heart? Did you tear loose from a grand opening, floating away from your brothers and sisters unnoticed? Were you carelessly anchored or did you struggle? Or maybe you're a terrorist weapon, anthrax spores mixed with your helium. I saw you last night, blue balloon bobbing and poking your plastic head a foot above the weeds. Did you have a message for me? For someone like me? This morning I came out to visit you and you were dead . . .or sleeping . . . lying in the dirt amid the weeds shrunken half last night's size, immobile. I never knew you, blue balloon. I know you flew. I know you soared to great heights before you landed in the abandoned lot where all manner of abandoned others landed; broken stuff, unwanted stuff, unuseablle stuff: worn tires and broken pots and candy bar wrappers . . . but you flew there, blue balloon. I'll give you that.
