1) Why doesn’t my husband love basketball more and hockey less? “More basketball, less hockey,” says L. Hell yes to that.
3) When will I learn that the house won’t pack itself?
7) That’s all.
“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.” –Helen Keller

Goodbye to Molly in Haiti. Rest in peace, sweetie. Her blog is really touching — I started reading through her archives. University of Portland grad who arrived in Haiti last June. (Thanks, C, for the link.) Then i realized that all of the sweet kids in those photos are most likely gone, too, and that did me in.
peace, Haiti. so sorry about… everything.
Little hockey player to Hockey God at the rink, checking out his new skates:
“Did you get those for Christmas?”
“Yes! My wife bought them for me!”
My husband is pretty easy to keep happy.
listen up. i’m alive, leaving for work soon. took a couple days off to rest. my sweet mother-in-law (one of two, both sweet, yes, i’m lucky, lucky girl) is here for long weekend. when did i realize it was a 3-day weekend? last night at 4:30. no kidding. hahahahaHA! what a dope.
i am still sore, moving around a little slower than my usual ZIP-ZIP GOTTA GO SPOCKY! self. You know. Life. It comes at you fast, just like the commercial says.
do you read So the Fish Said? here is her list of books for 2009. this week i’m reading “Literacy with Attitude,” the Michael Pollan book about plant sex, more stuff by the “Wicked” author and… a bunch of kid books, per usual.
miss you, miss you, more later. hope life is good in eastern Canada, Texas, England, Morocco, Happy Rock, the South Side, or wherever you happen to be.
peace & love to Haiti, i’m lighting my candles. it’s not much but it’s all i’ve got. that and this little blog. (private note to U.S. government, Stop Katrina’ing things, how about? Just sayin’.)

This showed up in my e-mail, and I must say… I kinda like it.
I very lovely and kind person. But.
With the lacks and weaknesses,
as well as all normal people…
It is attractive, charming, clever, talented and brought up!
It is self-sufficient, independent and arrogant.
It is harmonous, perfectly I look, with taste I put on…
And now in essence!
I simply woman to whom it is possible to talk about different things,
listening to noise of a wind and singing of birds…
