mabfan: Cafe Observer or Crazy Waiter?

In a meme he did recently, kradical said that I reminded him of the song "Calliandra Shade" by Ian Anderson. Having never heard of this song, I searched for its lyrics on line and found them at http://www.j-tull.com/news/rupisdance.cfm#calliandra.

(The original post has gotten a lot of comments; you can find the thread with kradical's answers to me at http://www.livejournal.com/users/kradical/199065.html?thread=961177&style=mine#t990361.)

The song appears to be about a man sitting in a cafe on a lazy afternoon and observing the world around him. I'm hoping that kradical picked that song because I remind him of that guy, but knowing Keith as I do, I'm now wondering if he thinks of me as one of the crazy waiters... :-)
