Stands With A Fist!

I am so ready for this week to be over with. It’s been chock full of crankiness, with added heaps of anxiety. Not just for me but for most everyone I know. To add to the ugh yesterday I found out one of my favorite places in St. Paul, the Minnesota Museum of American Art, [...]

Sand In Your Swimsuit

Managed to turn my cranky dial down for today but I’m still all about being home and staying cozy. Sadly this meant skipping the gym after work, but I’m hoping to make up for it tomorrow night. Complete with post-workout swimming and/or hot tubbing. For now, sorting out what to make for dinner and whether [...]

Insert Disturbing Dreams Here

Last night I paid $49 for inconclusive news at the vet. Today nothing much is going well and I’m irritable and uncomfortable and looking forward to unconsciousness. Until then I am waiting for my son to be returned to me, and extremely anxious about it…as the day has seen a lot of freezing rain, temperatures [...]

All Blown Up, Like a Ghetto Blaster

Thanks to flickr’s epmd I’ll be participating in some Mix Tape madness with other flickrites:
I’ve decided to do a Mixtape with 20 Different Flickr People. If you want in send me a Flickr Mail and I’ll send you the details. 20 People 15 Songs Each 1 USB Drive. I send you the “tape” and the [...]

Desires of the Mind

Sometimes I feel downright primal. This weekend’s focus was on basic needs. Eating, sleeping, cleaning the house, washing laundry, and, most importantly, restocking the groceries. I blame the below-freezing weather for kicking me into survival mode. But it was oddly satisfying, knowing that I’d provided for my son. Silly considering I’ve been doing so for [...]

Dirty Old Town

Recently I bought a Play-Doh party pack tube, for distribution at the boy’s birthday party. A few mini containers were left over. I discovered the chunk of Play-Doh inside is just the right size for my dinky little hands to use as a stress ball while working. Relaxing, yes, but this leaves me smelling of [...]

Unjust Guilt Monkey Torment

I like to think I’m pretty on top of things, but somehow I totally missed this rumor…that there will - allegedly - be an Apple Store opening near my house. On St. Paul’s Grand Avenue specifically in early 2009. Next year is shaping up to be all kinds of awesome. Speaking of, I’m planning to [...]

Beyond Measure

I’ve consumed more political coverage in the last couple of days than I have in the last few years. From bloggers and blogger friends, The Stranger, The New York Times, The Guardian, Michael Moore, Daily Kos, Wonkette, and so much more. I am elated and hopeful but overloaded. My brain can’t chew off any more [...]

Seize Your Someday

It should go without saying, but c’mon now folks, if you are eligible and haven’t already, get out there and vote.
I showed up around 7:55am and had voted by 8:00am. Absolutely no waiting whatsoever, which makes me kinda sad. This was my third presidential election there. The primaries are even more pitiful. It’s always a [...]

Duct Tape Tourniquets

I love so many writers but lately A. Lee Martinez is a favorite (even if I’d misplaced his name in my brain for a bit I still remembered and loved his books). Stumbling upon his blog the other day seemed fortuitous, right at the beginning of NaNoWriMo. Reading his recent post on power creep had [...]
