I thought it was blank, but inside, randomly sprinkled, I found little drawings and stories about interesting things that I saw back in 2005. In between the flash on my camera and the weird sheen on the paper, I can't seem to capture them.
But I thought they should be shared with the world.
Today at my favorite sushi restaurant, I left one piece of sushi on my plate next to the miso soup. When Johnny picked it up, he asked me if there was a problem with the food, since I'd never left sushi behind before.
I answered, "No, I just didn't want the soup to be lonely."
And then I figured I should rethink portion sizes.
Today I saw a grandmother point to an orangutan
and say to a young child on a leash,
"Look at that orange goriller."
She was standing in front of a sign reading
I weep for the youth of tomorrow.
Driving to work isn't so bad when you're behind a Beetle
with an "I <3 My Weiner" bumper sticker.
Today I saw a skeletal tree dissolve into smoke.
At least I think I did.
It was like I'd missed Moses by 5 minutes.
And thus concludes the dream in which Andy Kim, the coward,
stole my rutabagas and took off in his biplane
without giving me a ride, leaving me to grieve
in my red and green replacement oompah loompah costume.
It was a weird dream.
Today I saw a honeybear party.
I am woman enough to wear pink, dammit.
Today I realized that I like things
in the following order:
1. Selecting items to purchase online.
2. Receiving purchases in the mail.
3. Owning stuff.
I need to work on that.
Ad in Creative Loafing:
...is that supposed to be a test?
Today they replaced two light bulbs over my cube.
I had no idea until that moment that I was sitting in the dark.
I have to get out of here.
I AM A NINJA.
Pretty poignant, eh?
Life's better now, even if I'm not living in a public park with deer in the backyard.
