sometimes i get snappy. for no reason. somedays my fuse is too short and my patience runs thin. for no reason. i blame it on my surroundings: it’s too hot. i’m tired. i’m hungry. i’m thirsty. nothing is going right. my uterus hurts. etc. etc. etc. i speak quickly and without thinking. unfortunately my words cut. nothing personal. but enough to wound others for a minute or...

i have to figure out how to navigate this site full of treasures ASAP!
There’s something so captivating to me about life in a little town in the South. All of these feelings come alive whenever I watch movies about growing up down there (The War, Hounddog, Fried Green Tomatoes) and I feel a sense of nostalgia for a life I’ve never known. There’s something so gritty and real about the people down there. Everybody seems to have such a raw sexuality...
a couple years ago i happened upon the best find ever. i was walking down the street when i stumbled across a brand new book of “forever” stamps. as i stooped down to pick them up, i couldn’t help but feel that this was just a dream and once i woke up i would be disappointed. but alas, ‘twas no dream. i really had found an unused brand new book of stamps that would always...
when i die, i would like a funeral with music (aka. a jazz funeral)
last night's dream.
another dream to add to the bizarre category occurred in my subconscious last night. i was at an event of some sort…or maybe it was a mall? whatever the case, i was seated on a bench somewhere hanging out with friends when these two girls came up to me and one of them asked to borrow my phone. right before i handed it to her i thought “what if she steals it?” sure enough she...

In the early hours of the morning my grandfather passed away today. He was 86 years old and I would say that he lived a good life. He fought in WWII and was still receiving honors up until the day he died. He raised two great men and had a wife whose number one priority was always looking after him. He traveled around the world with the U.S. Geological Survey and when he retired from that, he...
history lesson of the day. →
In honor of the 5th day of the 5th month of 2010, I figured I should learn more about the celebration of our neighbor (and by neighbor I mean the colorful country that is Mexico). And now for the question of the day: If France had won at the Battle of Puebla, would Arizona’s Immigration Law sb1070 even exist?
