+ manic.
i've been feeling so manic as of late. if i can get to bed by 10:30, i'll be happy. my bright jangly plastic nerves will thank me for it. and my raw-numb synapses.

+ owen.
this weekend i had the distinct pleasure of meeting owen gulledge, meaghan and craig's 2 week old son (as of monday!). he's sooooo adorable! *gushgushgush* i kept wanting to ask, "so... when do you have to return him?" it's so unreal that one of my friends has a child. and will continue to have a child. will always have this child. we'll have a girlfriend sweatshop weekend in july where we will witness the wonders of the "pump & dump." and a girlfriend sweatshop weekend in 5 years where we will witness classroom macaroni fridge art and sippy cups (is 5 too old for sippy cups?!). i am in awe of meaghan's body. she's a domestic goddess super woman who had a 6 hr natural childbirth.

+ suck it off.
oh, i can't quite remember this story exactly! ...but suffice it to say that meaghan confused this phrase with "finish it off" when talking to her dad (i believe in reference to a drink with a straw). i am probably going to start using this phrase a lot more.
in reference to an unfinished drink: "are you done with that? can i suck it off?"

+ john jacob.
amazingly enough, i was able to see john TWICE in one weekend, where i had not seen him in, quite possibly, 3 years. it was so nice to see him and hear about his travels and life and pictures of the ukraine. and hear that he had been to see the museum of croatian naive art in zagreb. i am intensely jealous as naive art is so stark and beautiful.

+ i have a work cell phone. o.o

+ and am getting a fancy 4 gb thumb drive

+ and have the option of having an external hard drive.

+ in addition to my 24 inch lcd monitor.

+ (techies get first dibs!)



from madge, i have learned to use google reader to keep my plethora of blogs in order.

should you wish, here i shall keep items that have intrigued me. a running blog of blogs. a meta-blog. a list of items i shall tuck away and possibly never look at again.

today is a lovely, rainy, florida at-home kind of day. with tea and a book and ibprofen and a kidney massage. naps. and movies. and cats.

in reality, it is an at-work day. at work at 7:30 am. though with delicious coffee (with real creamer, not powdered) and slightly stale animal crackers. a day of monotonous item deletions. and then class. and home at 9:00 pm.

i have been so tired lately! ugh. what a downer.




mayhaps a little low.

had to run to wal-mart (eck) for toothpaste - we were woefully short. peppermint-y fresh!

driving down to ft myers to visit family tomorrow. i should... probably get some sleep.


and i feel crampy.

kidneys! massage thine.selves!


in absentia


away i've been, quite. i've been busy and lazy and full of thoughts i can't seem to set down in straight lines and lists. and i do love lists. i shall be righted. sooner rather than later. i hope.

i'm also hoping to get back into crafting and doing some artistic things. soon. partly because gfss may have a site installation at transitions art gallery (in july, eek!!) and partly because i think we're going to apply to get into the renegade craft fair! this actually gives my heart a little thrill, indeed, a trill. it's expensive, but even if we don't get in, we're planning on going and celebrating jen's birthday (on the 13th).

and i can finally make it to the shedd aquarium!

so that's where i am. work, school, drift. find sleep and bathe. and to right myself.
