all i want for xmas…

is a 10-minute shoulder massage. ok, maybe 15. my shoulders hurt. i don’t think it’s too much to ask for. but i know it’s not going to happen. today there were some good things. i went to best buy, and it looked like there was no line at all, which seemed a little odd...

“lifestyler”

i met a man who is a self-proclaimed “lifestyler.” have you ever heard this term? you probably have. i hadn’t, but i like it. he takes people fly fishing in montana. sounds like an excellent lifestyle to me. i assume this “lifestyler” lifestyle...

what weekend?

it’s the st. ANDREWS fife and drum corps, fyi. maybe it’s pipe and drum corps. st. ANDREWS, though. i started my day by waking up at eight and going to the gym and running on the treadmill YET AGAIN. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? WHY CAN’T I JUST RELAX AND SLEEP LATE AND...

endorphin rush

yeah, it can be effective, but how do i get it to last all day? this morning i got on that treadmill and i said i’m REALLY REALLY REALLY only going to do this for 15 minutes, because i’m TIRED, and my CALVES HURT. but when 15 minutes rolled around, i figured i might...

attitude and expectation

my attitude right now isn’t so great. as i knew i would, i got up at nine this morning, even though i stayed out very, very, very late. i saw the movie “the family stone” with sarah jessica parker, and it wasn’t anything like i thought it would be. i’d...

getting dark on friday, while i get brighter…

actually, it’s ALREADY dark outside. and i’m already brighter. my hair, that is. i stopped by amy’s salon to say hi, and she did my hair. she promises that it’s going to be PERFECT. so i’m pretty excited about that. perfect hair. right now i have a towel wrapped...

soon to be friday…

whew. each day i keep doing too many different things. but tonight was the LAST NIGHT OF CLASS for 2005, which is a very good thing. it wasn’t really a class, it was mostly a party, which was a great way to end the semester. ok, so i told kurt about the people dancing...

bovine beef injection?

that’s definitely not what it is. whatever it may be, i wonder who’s had one? and why? why does somebody need some bovine parts injected into them? especially if it’s so bad that if you have it, they won’t let you give blood? i bought some xmas gifts today. rather...

late tuesday night…

…and i feel like the week has been going on for years. too many things packed into one day. yesterday i did many different things, many different places. i gave blood in the afternon, at 3:30, but i had to read about 15 more pages of the play for class which...

p.s. OLD NEWS

i have just been informed that this baby has been around a while, that she was named apple at least a year ago, maybe longer. somehow, SOMEHOW, i must try to be more current with current things that are CONSTANTLY HAPPENING ALL AROUND ME. somehow. i guess if i was...

lingerie, plus apple is a GIRL

jerri told me about that, gwyneth paltrow’s child, a girl, not a boy. she didn’t actually TELL me that, she e-mailed me. not much better that she’s a girl named apple than a boy. don’t name your children fruit, that’s all i’m saying. how’s that minneapolis weather,...

MR. HEATMISER!

i’m in bed now, i took an antihistamine which will hopefully make my nose stop running, as i continue to try to avoid this damn cold that wants to take over AGAIN, plus the drug should make me very sleepy and i’ll theoretically (but only in theory, of course, doubtful...

BIG BAD VOODOO DADDY!!!

they were OUTSTANDING. better even than i thought they’d be. i’m going to look them up and see where else they’ll be playing. i bought their xmas cd, and a cool, vintage-looking poster that i had them all sign. and a t-shirt. i never buy stuff at concerts, and...

dropping a shoe…

i haven’t lost any shoes at all today. yet ANOTHER good thing! tonight i’m going to see big bad voodoo daddies at the sangamon auditorium. i’m pretty sure they’ll be really good. yet ANOTHER good thing. gee, the good things just keep piling up… yep. good things....

boots

ok, that’s one thing to be happy about today – MY BOOTS! i put them on and walked out in the snow and my feet stayed warm and toasty and dry. i love my boots. i have to carry my shoes around, and knowing me, there’s a good chance i’m going to drop one someplace...

WIDE AWAKE at five a.m.

i haven’t written on here in the middle of the night for a long time. that’s not to say i haven’t been awake in the middle (i guess it’s closer now to the end) of the night in a while, but i’ve been lying here so long and my brain, instead of settling down, is way way...

SNOW SNOW SNOW SNOW SNOW….

lots and lots and LOTS of snow. i was driving home at about 2:30 this afternoon, and it appeared that the snow plows had better things to do with their time besides PLOWING THE SNOW. 5th street was merely a suggestion of a street, a snowy path that i crept along. this...

i found the hotel

so not only do i know the name of the great little town, i finally found the hotel i stayed in. my bags are packed! i’m leaving, on a jet plane, don’t know when i’ll be back again… cayucos shoreline inn they have an internet special with rooms at only $79/night....

wednesday night

i’m going to try to think positive thoughts. no bitter complaining about the fact that it’s supposed to be TWO DEGREES tonight, that there’s supposed to be THREE TO SIX INCHES of snow starting at dawn. nope, going to accentuate the positive, eliminate the...

sitting here, trapped by my addiction…

whew. very very busy day. there are TWO “sex & the citys” on right now. AT THE SAME TIME. crazy. i’m watching one that i’ve already seen, so when i have the REAL UNCUT VERSION, i’ll get to see the one i haven’t seen before real and uncut. right now...

tuesday afternoon

i have a small amount of free time in between things right now, so i’m sitting here at amy’s salon, typing and eating little chocolates. i brought her some xmas chocolates, since i come over here and eat her little chocolates every day, and she then left me a message...

MULTI-TASKING BLACK EYED PEAS

i’m suddenly running out of time. just in general. i got home from class and did some schoolwork-type stuff which really just involved e-mailing papers to class that i’d already written, but suddenly it’s 10:30 and i just wanted to WATCH SEX & THE CITY, and i...

saturday morning

randy just called, his mother said there’s supposed to be lots and lots of snow this afternoon. i refuse to believe it. not going to happen. i may or may not leave my bedroom today. just depends. snow or no snow. ok then, leaping toward april...

BETTING RESULT IN!

i’m referring to the post yesterday (RIGHT NOW IT’S REALLY FRIDAY DECEMBER SECOND, BUT BY THE TIME IT’S POSTED IT WILL SAY DECEMBER THIRD, WHICH IS WRONG) about anybody at all responding to my comment about putting flyers up at workplaces. i assumed that nobody would...

photos

i wish i had some photos to put up here. i really like my new hat, maybe i’ll get somebody to take my picture in it so you can see it. it goes down kind of far in the front, and practically covers my face, but amy (who know everything, did i mention that?) said that a...

one more thing on the first day of december

i have a new addiction, and it is “sex & the city.” this is a more satisfying addiction than my previous and long-ago (relatively speaking) addiction to the soap opera “all my children,” because that addiction was more about this weird...

SCISSORS FOUND!!!

my brother david sent me an e-mail, which he does about once every three years or so (but that’s ok because i do see him a lot because he lives right here in spfld; what about the REST OF YOU who i never hear from? but i’ve come to accept that in my life and i’ve...
