Seize the Fish

July 19, 2011


This weekend has not been so fun. Friday was my husband’s birthday, which was the good thing. The bad thing was that there was an opportunity so close for us that I could taste it. I figured that all that was (really) left in the decision process was just to stop and get the celebratory […]

I love you to the sun and back.

January 9, 2008


Usually coming home from work doesn’t stress me. Although, if the correct sequence of events happen, plus traffic… It can make for an angry evening. Tonight was unfortunately one of those nights. I left the house almost the point of raising my voice. Somehow my sister still finds me tolerable at times like these. “Oh weird, look at that car! Oh weird. Ew. Ew ew ew.” “That is weird. I wonder what kind of car it is.” “I know, I’m not sure if I’ve ever–I’m trying to think if I’ve seen it before.” “I’m trying really hard to come up with a comeback for that car and I’m […]

A morning for the exploding!

Heart as foggy as the night.

Yep, it’s 3am again. Tonight I’m not out to make some profound point or to poeticize what’s around me. This time it’s just me talking. In fact I don’t think I’ll edit this too much beyond the point of removing some of my excessive commas. I don’t even know where to start this time. Today […]

Let’s get the riot on, shall we?

July 27, 2007


I had to say my point before I forgot what it was. Sleeping is secondary, especially because my logic/emotions might be different in the morning, and also because I don’t just want to forget about it. Why should I? Sleep is like a hand that turns down the heat on the burners inside the mind. […]

Okay? So you have your coffee?

Why are you back in the kitchen? Some might say I don’t give people enough credit. On the other hand, I think people tend to give themselves too much credit.
