Watched TV with my mom earlier and saw this guy being interviewed. We drooled together over the Oreo pie and pumpkin cupcakes on display. All I gotta say, is thank GOD his business isn’t in California. My mom has a sweet tooth. I just like to taste things….umm. We’d have to live outside.
Moral of the story: do not let your imagination run amok. It will imprison you and keep you inert…. and possibly manifest as a city-destroying robot. P.S. Be sure to buy on iTunes!
In a Word
In acknowledgement of Father’s Day, here are a few photos of my Papa and I, and my own memories: I was always in his space. :) At least that time, I was aided by the quick inspiration of my mother, who thought it would be a cute way to wake him up. My middle sister is sleeping farther down. I almost didn’t live to have this picture taken. There was a nectarine-sized hole in the...
Heads up, music nerds!
Have you ever heard of Abandoned Pools? Oliver The Penguin? Glacier Hiking? No? Shame on you! Where have you been for the last decade? Never mind, it’s alright — now you can make up for lost time and expose yourself to some awesome music. Tommy Walter (aka Abandoned Pools and collaborator extraordinaire) is playing Spaceland on June 15th...
Today is/would’ve been my father’s birthday. He lives/lies in a wall, largely undecorated by flowers or flags. He’s rarely visited, because his family doesn’t like to acknowledge his absence. His remains wait for those of his widow, who won’t see him for at least 2 more decades. I might see him… or his wall, really, later today. Or not. I’m too old to...
CARY BROTHERS IS JUST ONE GUY...: 2010 SUMMER TOUR... →
If you’re not familiar with the music of Cary Brothers, here’s a few things you should know: 1. Cary Brothers is one person, not a band; an awesome guy who writes and plays heartfelt indie rock. 2. “Under Control” is an album you should not be without. (Feel more than free to pick up “Who You Are” as well.) 3. All tickets are reasonably priced and these are...
Yeah, that's not a baby bump....
Co-worker: You know, a guy just told me "Congratulations. When are you due?" Third time this week. Damn it. Can't people just be big anymore?
Co-worker: That kinda hurt my feelings. He tried to make up for it by saying "Oh, well. Just keep being you."
Me: You should be happy. You just earned his permission to be fat.
Yep. Trying not to look like this for the rest of my life. Dealing with feelings and facing problems directly hasn’t been a forte in my life. I’m learning to make healthier choices and think before indulging. Even if decadence is “only” finishing all the food on my plate when I’m already full, I have to make better decisions about my body. It’s the only one...
Photo: My father’s U.S. Army ring and my high school ring. I’m not a touchy person; ask me a direct question, and I’ll answer honestly without reserve. There aren’t many things in a conversation about family that bother me…. except my least favorite subject. “What are you mixed with?” *waves* Hi, maybe we haven’t been properly introduced. I am...
