The caulk gun I purchased was some cheap piece of crap that managed to get itself bent into an unusuable condition when I loaded the silicone canister and attempted to start to use it. I suppose it's just as well since I didn't have any of the trash cleaned out of the cracks and would have needed to do that first.
Let's try this.
Vinnie didn't take up a bag of old bread with him to the door as usual, not since he started waiting outside the back door these last few days. It has been four times in the last two weeks, but it felt like it was twice as often. He didn't want to so much as acknowledge the man sitting silently in wait. It depressed him, to see how he would sit there now; thin, pale, unkempt, twitchy. This is what has become of the child who everyone he knew treated with extraordinary kindness in light of his unstated condition. The only common thread from then to now were still the eyes, which were always to the ground, which were always away. The last few times Vinnie gave him some of the garbage, he leaned over the hunched figure as he noisly consumed the bread in ravenous mouthfuls. He looked at his face to see signs of anything - to see if there was suffering he couldn't speak, shame he couldn't hide, gratitude that he couldn't state. There was nothing of the sort on Wolf's face. His brain wouldn't have allowed anything like that to be conveyed, even if he did harbor those kinds of feelings. The lone thought which still remained was The Focus on The Search. Vinnie had no idea about any of this and was merely apprehensive to have him around. He didn't want feeding him to turn into a habit. This is why he stood still and released a deep sigh of exasperation when he slowly pushed the door open and peered around it to see Wolf sitting on the ground, leaning against the fence on the opposite side of the alley.
"Danny... you gotta listen to me some time, you gotta hear me. You're hungry, but I'm not your Dad. I'm not family. You can't rely on me to do this every time. What if you come here and I got nothing to throw away? Then what?"
Wolf responded by turning his head towards Vinnie and anchoring his palms to the ground so that he could bring his legs inward to stand. He walked across the alley without looking up and came to a stop at the base of the stoop upon which Vinnie stood. Vinnie winced and squinted his eyes in response to Wolf's pungent odor.
"Christ, kid, can't they wash you at the fucking church or something? Where do you fucking sleep? Outside?"
Wolf remained silent and motionless in the same spot. Vinnie rubbed his hands over his eyes and cheeks in exasperation.
"Shi.. fuggin sh... hold on, dammit."
He stepped back into the store and quickly retrieved a bag of expired Italian style loaves, then returned to the door. Wolf didn't move an inch, as if he were trying to emulate a statue. He held the bag of bread out to him.
"Here. This's gotta stop, Danny. You hear? This's gotta stop happening." He snatched the bag and pulled one loaf from it, then let the bag drop to his feet as he used both hands to compress the food into his salivating mouth.
Extra Mode. The Usual.
Among songs which I flushed for having placed recently were Smoke, Thanatos, Dawn The Next Endeavour, and You Were The One. I debated playing through Dawn for a bit but having played it twice just recently eventually convinced me to move on. Another big last measure death with Wow Wow 70s, though at least I can blame a bad Random on it this time.Code:EX% & Rank EX.p/f pg.gr.gd.bd.pr combo nc onc %+ date go beyond @ 29.48 E 1082.F 343.366.532.214.729 0067 2012-06-14T01:58:45:854Z 0018- 0002+ programmed life @ 51.59 C 1713.F 617.479.350.66.292 0110 1660 1291 028.58 2012-06-14T02:03:06:422Z 01.00+ 0030+ 3+24+11+17-81- 0047+ 2012-04-24T01:09:15:152Z scar in the earth @ 61.44 B 1535.F 567.401.181.33.166 0187 1249 0831 050.30 2012-06-14T02:07:33:001Z 06.20+ 0155+ 117+79-26-14-8- 0034- 2012-04-15T02:04:04:296Z beatonic nation @ 46.16 C 2119.F 764.591.475.200.703 0071 2012-06-14T02:11:45:777Z 0123- 0005- wow wow 70s @ 74.92 A 1025.F 408.209.50.1.28 0139 0684 0644 006.21 2012-06-14T02:14:58:508Z 04.33+ 0031+ 35+39-20-1-2+ 0275- 2012-03-25T04:20:39:254Z 凛として咲く花の如く @ 58.99 B 2145.F 807.531.290.53.289 0119 2012-06-14T02:19:31:180Z 0151- 0001- electric super hwy @ 60.74 B 1831.F 696.4184.108.40.206 0143 1507 0942 059.97 2012-06-14T02:23:46:738Z 05.30+ 0160+ 78+4+10-22-84- 0030+ 2012-04-25T02:19:51:185Z dancenow @ 38.06 D 1540.F 529.482.529.137.601 0065 2023 1315 053.84 2012-06-14T02:28:24:669Z 02.97+ 0120+ 58+4+25-34-37- 0059- 2012-05-22T01:20:12:473Z the detonator @ 49.54 C 2068.F 750.568.448.105.549 0172 2012-06-14T02:32:50:965Z 0069- 0004- on the tube @ 60.17 B 1621.F 617.3220.127.116.11 0451 2012-06-14T02:36:56:567Z 0025- 0131+ invasion @ 45.15 C 1082.F 356.370.256.65.263 0135 2012-06-14T02:39:35:136Z 0088- 0076- pretty punisher @ 68.42 A 1374.F 520.318.104.22.168 0223 1004 0748 034.22 2012-06-14T02:42:37:978Z 03.04+ 0061+ 42+23-19-5-5- 0039+ 2012-05-10T01:06:24:250Z look to the sky @ 50.02 C 1951.F 690.571.440.86.374 0099 1950 0948 105.69 2012-06-14T02:46:54:525Z 00.85+ 0033+ 20+7-30+28-22- 0031+ 2012-05-04T23:16:08:131Z quell @ 36.50 D 1391.F 463.465.515.137.575 0128 2012-06-14T02:51:43:363Z 0017- 0004- ユミル @ 47.07 D 1512.F 489.534.628.284.940 0079 2012-06-14T02:56:49:988Z 0094- 0020+ tomorrow perfume @ 51.49 C 1516.F 541.434.333.49.215 0136 2012-06-14T03:01:14:858Z 0048- 0013-
