i swear to god i don't have a mustache
I want to blog, but I don't really have much to say right now, aside from the fact that I DO NOT HAVE A FREAKIN' MUSTACHE, STUPID CAMERA THAT MAKES MUSTACHES APPEAR FOR NO REASON. THAT IS A TRICK OF THE LIGHT.
That's the problem with going through a manic stage-- it's a lot like my brain throwing up. Once I'm done, there's nothing left.
I've been reading some great books. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Killer, which made me like history for the first time since Dr. Terry's AP US History class. The Percy Jackson series, which Dr. Krog loves to ridicule. The Mysterious Benedict Society. 13 Little Blue Envelopes. And I'm trying to get through Carrie Fischer's memoir, Wishful Drinking, but her prose style seems forced. Just like she was forced to wear her hair in cinnamon buns or lose the role of Princess Leia to a thinner actress. Hey-o!
The problem is that after reading so much middle grade and YA, books written for adults seem so stilted and overdone. I mean, Margaret Atwood is skillfully weaving together three heartbreaking stories into a work of poetic genius, and I'm like, CAN WE GO ON A MAGICAL QUEST NOW, PLEASE?
My daughter has decided she wants to be a cheerleader. Yay.
My son is stuck on six words: mama, dada, dog, bath, ball, CKCKCK. He busted his lip today when he threw my camera at the coffee table and it bounced back into his face. Karma's a b*tch, kid! Luckily, he was wearing his black KISS shirt, so the blood didn't stain.
Dr. Krog is currently playing Mass Effect 2 in my art studio surrounded by apple cores, banana peels, and the wrappers from post-Easter-sale Reese's eggs. He's wearing his black gi jacket and is crouching on an office chair like some sort of lurid golem. We watched the final episode of Venture Bros. season 3 last night, and I woke him up 3 times laughing.
I'm really lucky I found someone who will put up with me on a regular basis.
That's all I've got, really.
