Alright, y'all, let's get physical positive!

clean drinking water.
my cutest ever puppy.
Joni Mitchell [times A MILLION].
Gigantic coffee mugs.
my rain boots
my new suede knee-high boots [they are SO AWESOME, y'all, I can't even believe they're mine].
action-packed movies [GIMME THE SPLOSIONS!!].
quiet tea times.
people that hold the elevator for you when your hands are full of flu vaccine.
people that care about other people.
lovely music.
pink post-its.
the letter "L"; language, longitude, lull, lariat, lollipop, left, lucid, loquacious, love, love, love.

iSight is a hell of a drug.

I made this, using iMovie. 338 stills, set to .1 second each.

It was a lot of fun! After an happy accident whilst opening a single one, every picture in my Photobooth album flashed across the screen. I thought they looked neat and decided to put them together into a collage.

Music is "People's Playground Version A" by Vampire's Sound Incorporation. If you can get your hands on their album "Vampyros Lesbos - Sexadelic Dance Party" I highly recommend it.

Poetry: Bit, Bag, and Game.

Bit, Bag, and Game.

I want a job that I can move around
push and pull barrels
tear walls down or hang signs up

I want to fix wood planks to steel rails
flex my muscles a bit
wear jeans and get messy

I want sun and air
maybe concrete and metal
but definitely crouching down and dirt on the seat of my pants

I want to learn while I am doing.
Come home with mud on my neck and a dusty bandana.
Give me a hammer, tell me what to pound.

10 Extremely Compelling Reasons for SPX Attendance

10 Reasons you should attend the Small Press Expo on Saturday, September 11th and Sunday, September 12th.:

1: You will be supporting independent artists. [This is, I feel, the most important point, because art is extremely important to me.]

2: You will have a chance to buy neat swag that's not available elsewhere.

3: You will be able to meet COMPLETELY AWESOME PEOPLE who make amazing things for you to read and view.

4: I will be volunteering there on Saturday, from 1pm to 5pm. I don't know what I'll be doing yet, but you better believe I will be doing it ENTHUSIASTICALLY. Watch my twitter on Saturday for details, cos I am going to tweet my little heart out. Also keep an eye on #SPX2010, cos I have a feeling it will be jumping.

5: Bethesda is quite pretty, actually, and the hotel is GORGEOUS.

6: It’s only $10 for a single day pass, and only $15 for both. This is an Outrageous Deal, y’all.

7: It’s easy to get to, wot with a Metro stop across the street, not to mention tons of parking in several garages nearby.

8: There is a Chocolate Fountain, y’all. I am not even making this up.


10: Proceeds benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

If all this doesn’t make you want to go SO BAD, then you might be a robot and incapable of persuasion. If this is the case, can we be BFF? I’ve always wanted a robot BFF.

Melancholy Thursday.

Do you ever have one of those days, when your hair is perfect and your dress is fierce and Gwen Stefani is playing on the soundtrack of your life? You float down hallways and people are just lucky to be looking at you?

Yeah, today is not one of those days.

I'm down. I'm angry about this priest. I am nervous about Earl.

I am sad , I am so so sad about James Lee.

I need something. A sabbatical. I want to get away from my life for a while, but I have to work every day.

It's not a Happy Things Thursday, and I'm sorry.

But, it could be Okay. I've got my iPod, and some oatmeal. I can make this work. I think it's time for a new tattoo.
