Good Vibes Needed!


On Monday, my Dad will be auditioning for a bass player gig with a national act.
One hell of a birthday gift if he becomes a rock star of sorts, eh? ;)

five years later




five years later my heart still aches.
i close my eyes and see the plumes of smoke billlowing through the air.
debris falls from the sky like dusty rain.
five years later my hands still shake.
chaos sirens confusion anger
their anguished cries are fading
yet i still hear them.
feel their pain.
my pain.
our pain.
five years later.

The Short List

1) I think I'm getting another ear infection...that's what I get for going in the pool. Yuck.

2) My stupid boss chose to ignore my availability for not one, but two days in a row. This means that not only was I stuck closing last night and this evening, I had to cancel on my friend even though I committed to babysitting for her kids when she was still pregnant with the younger of the two!

It all makes me feel like busting up a Starbucks. (Mike Doughty like what?)

3) I'm cancelling my birthday this year, as in not having a celebratory gathering. No one cared last year, and it seems equally unimportant to anyone else but me this time around as well. I'll throw myself a one person fondue party. At least I know I'll show up.

4) School went well this week, but I'm still down a textbook. The shipping info hasn't been updated for five days now and I have no idea when the book is getting here. Googling for the poems that I need to write about is getting kind of old. Emailing the place I bought it from twice hasn't solved anything! Arrrgggghhh.

5) I don't know what to have for lunch today, but I know i have to drop several banana nut loaves off at the soup kitchen.
