i don't normally post my writing here, but this is short and a dead-end and i suppose i just felt like offering it up. i don't think i like it. i don't feel it has much zest.

of all the little, unfinished things i wrote in the past 3 years, only one sentence that i found had any sort of promise, and that single sentence was all that was written.


even that needed work.



it's summer and all kinds of beautiful things are happening.

hangover headache.




i'm so antsy but i don't want to do anything but lay in bed. i ache for nothing! the collision of so much and so little.

i believe i've come to an agreement with the spider in my bathroom. he won't rear his little brown..head and crawl about while i'm in there, i won't throw him in the sink. he won't build webs on whatever personal items i leave out (most recently it was the mouthwash bottle), and i won't rudely knock his dinner (filet a fly carcass) out of the web so he has to go get it off the floor. it's a nice arrangement.

driving home from work with don mclean's "american pie" (thankfully) barely audible, my father reminded me of how my first driving lesson involved a lack of power steering fluid, running over a curb uptown and blowing a tire. it's decidedly much funnier to him now than it was then.


i turn twenty in 29 days.

judging by the garbage left on the side of the road, i've come to the conclusion that there are nightly parties being had that involve drinking, smoking, combos pretzel snacks, arby's horsey sauce, and condoms (mostly smoking and horsey sauce). i may not be invited but i plan to catch the guests one of these nights!


photographs from this afternoon at a later date if they come out all right.

a night spent mending torn lace bras and wondering why i constantly type "photonucket.com" and get really fucking frustrated about it like it's not my fault. i've never been more of a nervous bundle of energy than i was today, hoarse-voiced and panicky. coffee before my shift is potentially a bad idea.

what's up with these betty crocker microwave cakes? i'm impressed. water and cake mix and a little over a minute! better than the easy bake oven i never had.

three hours, a spoon and a knife, two burnt fingers, begging & pleading, nine specialists and six diagnoses later, there is still a large chunk of blueberry bagel trapped on the bottom of my toaster.


it doesn't look like it's going to make it out unscorched, but i'm holding out hope.
