Little did I realize it was his birthday yesterday. Ironically I did watch the Bukowski Tapes too. I had a rumonade but it was for myself. But had I know I would have toasted to him.
I wasn't aware it was his birthday, but instead of the Bukowski Tapes, last night I watched ... Henry & June. Wrong writer Guess that makes me a traitor. I did read from PULP, so maybe I can be forgiven.

No, wait a minute, I worked on a story about Bukowski, for BUK SCENE 2 (hopefully, if the editors don't bounce it), so I did spend some time thinking about Bukowski.

Here in Arnhem,
we are drinking a few glasses (bottles) of red wine to honor Buk,
although Ponder is treating a painful knee bursitis. No need to say that he is not following the doctor's recommendation. Well, it's party time for Hank, what the hell could be wrong with that?

I was curious as to who Hank shared his birthday with (Ted Hughes is one btw), and came across this...

'Juliette Kayyem Government 16-Aug-1969 Counterterrorism wonk'

What the hell is a 'wonk'?
It sounds like something Peter Sellers would have said in the Pink Panther films.

Sorry, I digress...

Belated Happy Birthday old (dead) man!

The dictionary spits out dweeb, nerd, grind, swot. That's a wonk. The best in the classroom who has no friends.
What the hell am I doing here? I'm not even a native speaker.

Happy birthday, Buk!
I'm going camping today. Hope I don't get lost in the woods like that story in Women.
I'll drink a few for the old man.
