Not sure why

Maybe its stress, or hormones, but for some reason, the Alicia Keyes portion of this song keeps making me cry....

New tricks

For the last two days I have woken up to find Hairy Mon asleep on the top of my kitchen cabinets. I am not very happy about this new development.


Started my new job today...further emphasizing my cat person mentality...aside from a few exceptions. Now we wonder onto Halloween costumes. Do you think Lion tamer makes sense if I bring Cash around with me? And how exactly do I implement that?



What part of "I have the flu" don't you mofos understand?!?! Think of it as like, I actually work IN your office....if I had the flu, would I be there that day?!?! NO! So, just because I work from home, does NOT mean I feel like being woken up from my fever sleep every two hours to find something for you! Grrrrr......The phone, it's going off!


John Krasinski

As if I didn't have a big enough crush on him from The Office? "Away We Go" did nothing to help sweet.
Got inexplicably harassed by a supposed "multi-millionaire" at the bar tonight. One who just wouldn't take no for an answer. He was giant and sweaty and very drunk. A supposed "engineer" at The Met. My first time out in almost two weeks...and it was not a great welcome back! Very grateful for the giant Danish man whose always at my side! He stepped it up tonight, and I was definitely appreciative!


I want...



What are the "leading department stores" that apparently sell such crappy makeup that $5 drugstore finds are so much better?

We have an extremely rare occurrence brewing over here (no, not the ladybugs). My jade plant actually might bloom this year! This phenomenon is so very rare in really old plants, and unheard of in those as young as mine! But just a few days ago I noticed the telltale buds emerging. There's only about three clusters so far...but it's very exciting!

They're coming to get us!

Ladybugs have swarmed my house. It's like something out of a horror film! They're crawling all over my windows and doors, the balcony is covered in about a thousand of them and they're coming in through the opening around the door. I feel like things are crawling on me and I just collected 15 in a jar.
Ladybugs in a singular instance...not so bad. This? Gah!
Don't know why this makes me smile...but it does!


Antgone Rising

Now the long blade of the sun, laying level east to west, touches with glory Thebes of the Seven Gates
Now, imagine 18 year old Musical Theater background Lindsay, in her first college theatrical experience...wearing homemade moccasins, a gunny sack and breath constricting mask, banging a walking stick and having the time of her life!


Every little thing is gonna be alright

Just read this post tonight, and should I ever be in that same life pattern, I TOTALLY want to have the exact same exchange with my own little girl!

God that's GORGEOUS!

So, I finished Into Thin Air, and am officially obsessed! Not with the climb itself, but with the height, the atmosphere, the photos, the stories.

Next on the shelf? The Oedipus Cycle. Time to get back to my Sophoclean roots!
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the center cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned

William Butler Yeats

First snowfall of the season tonight?
Sounds like a wonderful night in my newly redesigned apartment with Red wine, chilli and Grey's Anatomy. Hopefully a much better end to an otherwise bleak day.

RIP NanNan

Its been an emotional few days. But now I have a project to keep me occupied...redoing my entire apartment to make room for all the "new" stuff I got. Details to come on what's up for grabs...


Oh GOD! Yes Please!

Following some of my friends' posts who are moms makes me confused. Were there all these things like play groups and toddler music classes and "my gyms" when I was little? So far as I can remember there were the neighborhood kids, bike riding, swing sets, and eventual nursery school. Did I miss out on some sort of socialization prep? That could kind of explain a lot.....


Huckleberry Point

Had an a-MAZ-ing time hiking this afternoon with the girls!! Felt so much better outside, in the cold air. Found an awesome camping spot. Worked my legs and my lungs, and forgot about all the stress and sadness.
Thanks so much to Rob for the tip!


Guess its just been a Kelly Clarkson kinda day!
Remember all those things we wanted?
Now all those memories they're haunted.
Cause we were always meant to say goodbye.


Tomorrow at 3

I finally finally FINALLY have a real live job interview tomorrow. Not a freelance part-time unstable gig. An actual full time/salary/benefits responsibility. Ahhhh! Time to break out the business wear again!




My friend is a 911 operator, he just got this call in:

911 whats your emergency: Yes, the weed man stole my phone.
ME: The who? The WEED man?
Caller: Yes, you know the guy thats sells marijuana, he's white.
Me: Are you serious? The weed man stole your phone?
Caller: yes, can you send an officer?


Stereo flashback

Umphrey's McGhee...Mountain Jam 2008..."Ether really IS the best drug for Vegas"

Really People? Really?

So after a long night of restless sleep and a dream that lasted all night long...I awoke at 6:15 to the sounds of a car engine refusing to turn over. The driver was relentless though! For the next hour and a half he tried and tried and tried...finally gave up.
