Mirrors and hipsters at the end of History

'Finished chapter four of Disorderly Notions this afternoon, whilst sitting in The Bridgehead, watching the kids playing, the women go by in their summer dresses, and one hipster -- who was old enough to know better -- damage some other person's bike (he snapped of the mirror while stumbling), then commit the cardinal sin of locking his bike to someone else's while he went about his business. PoMo narcissism at the end of history? Who knows. A while later, a young woman with off-the-shelf, dirty blond hair stooped to pick-up the mirror from behind her car. Good Samaritan? Almost. She ended-up taking the mirror with her into her SUV; she had no way of associating the mirror with the bike, I suppose.

We currently have a French couple "couch-surfing" in the office/guest-room just down the hall. They seem pleasant, though I haven't had occasion to speak with them much, asides from helping them figure-out the thermostat. We seem to be getting a lot of French couch-surfers.
