fighting off winter

27 10 2010

I am not a winter person.  One might assume that a person who spent 95% of their life in Arizona may not be a winter person, and one would be correct.  I need sunlight and warmth to be a shiny happy person.  One might also assume that a person who needs sunlight and warmth to maintain smiles is a fucking idiot for moving from Arizona to Maryland, and one would be correct in that assumption as well.

impatience can be a virtue

26 10 2010

I have heard from more than one person that I am very impatient.  I am not here to argue that point, because it’s true that I do not like to wait or be delayed in any of my endeavors.  But I think that overall, impatience isn’t such a shit quality to have.  My impatience really comes from the fact that I take a LONG time to decide what I want, and when I do decide, I want it immediately.  My brain must think that since I spent a lot of time deciding, any additional time waiting to get the item is a waste.

it’s about my kids and i can’t think of a title

22 10 2010

At first this is going to sound like I’m complaining about my kids.  I’m not.  Well, not completely.  Just give it a minute.

apropos of nothing

My kids are trying to kill me this month.  It’s getting cold and has been rainy, which severely inhibits the amount of time they can spend outdoors.  Also, I am still suffering from (or recovering from, not sure) what is apparently The Great Endless Mystery Illness of 2010.  Also, midterms.  Also, my car catching on fire.  So their insane amounts of energy, which is now locked indoors for the winter, plus my stressed mind and body, are making for some frustrating family times.

so i woke up this morning to find i wrote this whole post while i was sleeping??? omgwtfshit.

17 10 2010

The past few weeks, I have been suffering a wicked case of sleep-texting.  More accurately: my friends have been suffering through a wicked bout of me sleep-texting.   I feel bad for my friends who I’m likely waking from a dead sleep at 2am just for them to look at their phone and see a not-at-all-important text declaring how much I love them or want to squish their face or how delicious chunky peanut butter is on apple slices.  I have no recollection of my nighttime communications and when morning comes and I look at my phone, I am mildly (to thoroughly, depending) mortified at the things my subconscious feels the need to share with my nearest and dearest or in one case, my history professor:

the debil’s holiday

14 10 2010

Halloween is quickly approaching.  I mean, I think it is.  I am not entirely sure when exactly Halloween is because I haven’t observed Halloween since I was six.

My dad was in a phase for ummm, ten years or so where Halloween was The Debil’s Holiday.  We were the house at the end of the cul-de-sac that had a sign up on the door.  And it wasn’t even a polite, ambiguous sign that said “No candy here! Move along! Goodnight!”  No, this sign was some serious shitRead the rest of this entry »

there’s a good chance i’m overthinking this

13 10 2010

I would really like your opinion on something, Dear Reader.  It’s not really a big issue, but I am very interested in people’s (possibly different) takes on it.  Also I’ve been out of the game for eight years and need some help.  Also also:  I am socially awkward in general.  Backstory first, question to follow.

a playlist for my kids

12 10 2010

This is part of the 30 Days of Truthiness thingy that is going around the interwebz.  I am not doing it in order, because I already feel lame for doing it at all as everyone is right now and readers are probably bored of seeing it but hey, there is nothing going on in my day-to-day life worth writing about, and I figure this is better than a diatribe on my midterms.

(Day 24 ) Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs.  Read the rest of this entry »
