Unattached In Time

We survived snowmageddon today but it wasn’t pretty. Well, all right, the snow itself is pretty but the long slog home sure wasn’t. Especially the parts that had me cursing like a sailor (and being reprimanded for it by my nine year old son). I’m just not a big fan of two-hour white-knuckle commutes. Quite [...]

Old Enough to Know Better

Yesterday I did a grown up thing and had my taxes done. When I found out how much my refund would be my brain did back flips and considered some not-so-grown-up expenditures. Like splurging on more camera gear, or flying myself to the ATP festival in England (they’ve redesigned their site, btw) or at least [...]

A Constellation of Moments

I nailed that last item on my Saturday To Do list. I did, in fact, stay out ALL NIGHT LONG. Finally went to bed at 5am this morning. The rest of the mind-numbing entertainment coma wasn’t entirely to plan. Skipped the gym, didn’t go to a movie or to the art openings, but did spend [...]

A Constant Mind-Numbing Entertainment Coma

This Saturday my son has his monthly overnight with my awesome ex, which is great, but they’re starting the party early. A little after lunch. Which leaves me about 24 hours free from active parenting duty. 24 hours I’m not entirely prepared for. In fact, I had been looking forward to seeing the animated Azur [...]

Breathing Fumes and Having Visions

We’ve made it to mid-week. Congratulations! Unfortunately my brain is unable to arrange information in anything other than bullet points.

Not the latest breaking news, but I just found out about something troubling close to home. Rudies Coffee House on West Seventh burned down last month. Arson is suspected. Super shitty. Sounds like the owners [...]

Vibrations In The Air

Lately I’ve had some good times - two stellar evenings out on the town, lunch with a fun bunch of friends at The Wienery, and getting caught up on my stories (Battlestar Galactica, Burn Notice, Heroes, Life) . But it’s not all fun and games. Financial woes are getting the better of me. I’ve been [...]

Overcome By The Command

Sometimes it’s hard to override the hard-wiring and resist impulses, but it can be done (I just have to keep reminding myself of it). Unless you happen to be a skin job I guess. A new Battlestar Galactica episode - “No Exit” (sounds ominous!) tonight.
High Fives for this Friday the 13th:

Some could consider this a [...]

Loving Takes This Course

It’s staring me straight in the face so I have to say something about it. Yep, Valentine’s Day is this Saturday. And just last week I broke up with a man I had fallen deeply in love with. But it had to happen. And I am coping. The last few days I’ve been listening to [...]

Prevailing Is Underrated

There will be no happy Hollywood endings for me. Over the years I’ve made my peace with this. But occasionally I catch myself striving for more, only to be bitchslapped back to reality. Life is hard. Me and mine? We struggle. We toil. We do what we can to get by. Hopefully that allows us [...]

Trouble In Their Dreams Again

The little man sleeps soundly, for the most part. But when something is troubling him the old Morrow genes kick in, presenting themselves in the form of sleepwalking and sleeptalking. His most recent stressor? The trailer for the Coraline movie, of all things. I was surprised by how thoroughly it spooked him (guess he didn’t [...]
