I just renewed this godamn domain for two years, I’d better start using it, right?

Life is busy. Good. So good. But so busy. I leave in two days for a week in NOLA with some of the people I love best. I have not packed a single thing. I’m blowing off freelance (and sleep) to write this.

There’s stuff to talk about, but I’m not going to. It’s not important and I’m tired, ya’ll.

My amazingly wonderful, and way too good to me, boyfriend bought me a gift certificate for a massage today. That small act of generosity totally erased the last week and a half of pure hell work has been. He is so fucking adorable sometimes.

I am SO FUCKING EXCITED to see my Nola in a few days. We haven’t talked much lately just because life has been so busy. Three Man is coming down too. This will not suck. I have earned this vacation and I am so giddy to be able to show the Scotsman the place I love best. I am even more excited about the prospect of helping to rehab/clean pelicans while we’re there. A is talking to a contact at the Whole Foods down there to hopefully get us hooked up with someone so we can volunteer while we’re there. AWESOME. Yeah, I practice what I preach. Big, patchouli stinkin’, re-usable tote carryin’, SIGG swillin’ hippie. Right here. I have never been happier with who I am than the person I am right now.

Sometimes the world and people make me sad. Every day something breaks my heart, but I’d rather have that part of me and hold on to my compassion and humanity than be one of these lazy super consumers who is destroying our planet. I care, motherfuckers. And if you’re here…well you probably do too. So…I’m hugging you. In my head. Maybe in real life if I happen to see one of you local folks.

I am totally incoherent and all over the place. I blame lack of sleep/caffeine. Time for freelance and then BED. xoxo

A rare request:

25 06 2010

It’s the Scotsman’s birthday soon…like as we’re driving home from New Orleans soon…


As with most men, he is of the “I want it so I am going to buy it” school of thought. That and he likes expensive toys. I wouldn’t even know where to start in the guitar department. He wants to buy Mom’s fiance’s Jeep. I can’t somehow sneakily do that because the transmission is shot and it’s not really road worthy. I know nothing about guns or guitars. This is hard.

So what’s a girl to do? A nice dinner and night out in the Big Sleazy? He mentioned possibly wanting a digital camera. But when I brought that up he didn’t seem too into it. Wifey suggested the Bourbon Trail. That would be great, but it’s so hard for us to get out of town with what’s going on with his mom.

So help. Please. I want to make this birthday special.

The ocean breathes salty

24 06 2010

Last night I dreamt I was at my step-grandparent’s cottage. A place I grew up going to and love with all my heart. But it was different. It was on the ocean or a much bigger lake. A lot of my college guy friends were there. I particularly remember Clark. We were drinking and hanging out in the front yard. Then it was the next morning. Knuckles was there. So were Totoro and Dinga. We were cleaning up after Dinga’s graduation party. I started freaking out because it was Monday and I was supposed to drive home. I went to use the bathroom before I left. There was a large sliding glass door that looked out on the water. The waves were really rough. They kept coming closer and closer to the house and getting choppier and higher until they were hitting the glass of the door. I just stood there and watched and then I opened the door.

Analyze that.

Do you ever get the feeling that something is coming? Intuition? I know I’m crazy superstitious…and just a little plain crazy…but I have this feeling…premonition? Read the rest of this entry »

Put your right hand on my heart

22 06 2010

I need a new car. I’ve almost been hit (one time it was sort of my fault but mostly it was the guy being an asshole) three times in the past 24 hours. I don’t know if my car is too little, the color blends in with the rainy weather or what. But I am scared. The woman that almost merged into me this morning was putting on her mascara instead of looking to see if there was anyone in the left lane. Fucking Ohio drivers. Read the rest of this entry »

Fuck this week

18 06 2010

I’m so tired. Sooo tired. Poprocks is here. Savannah’s birthday party is tomorrow. Pool time with Wifey is scheduled. These are all things I would normally be ecstatic about. Not to mention Jason Isbell tonight and USA vs Slovenia. So why am I so blah? Read the rest of this entry »

I think I might explode.

There is no way to just ease into this one. I am angry. I am frustrated. I am over a lot of people. I. Am. Done. Read the rest of this entry »
