My favorite shape: the circle. Circles are one of the most structurally sound shapes known to man. Circles are also intriguing as symbols of perfection, and their geometry can reveal much about nature’s design. Speaking personally, the only tattoo I want is a circle—exactingly proportioned in a thin black line, drawn on my right bicep, parallel to the collarbone. Let me lead you along on one of my imperfect circular journeys, starting one autumn evening last…
- go to Buzzed Bee (Buzzed Bee!)
- meet first girl
- get the girl
- go to the Porn Palace
- get a job and a place
- lose girl
- get a girl
- get a new place
- quit the job
- visit the Porn Palace for an event
- run into first girl again
Where do you think all of this is leading?
- get a new job
That’s right! I worry too much. And, although the job I got offered (the same job I start tomorrow) isn’t the best, isn’t ideal, in other words isn’t perfect, I’m quite tired of being spun about by different employers all around town and feeling like I’m running in… circles.
Incidentally—and I say this with no little amount of ironic, synchronistically-recognized cosmic amusement—the next Buzzed Bee is tomorrow evening.

Congrats! Whew! That was a long painful ride…
P.S. have you heard about this? http://www.carnavalsf.com?
Whats the point of seeing the first girl again?
I changed the words to be more clear. I just ran into her there and it was the first time in a long time. We didn’t, you know, “meet” each other. That’s one of the benefits of cheating.
Billy, circles are awesome, but please please please don’t get one as a tattoo. Do you want to look like trash?
I hate to say this, but…
You are such a yam.
Yeah, uh huh. So which one of these 30 definitions were you shooting for? Thou revealest thyself. You should’ve heard by now that slang is totally stoops. Tattoos aren’t embarrassing, stupid tattoos are embarrassing. Just like stupid people.
Oh darling, you know us better than that. The urban dictionary isn’t going to tell you what we mean. And by the way, don’t be surprised by my prejudice against tattoos, I’ve always had it.
