Searching for the Source...

this. photo. is. killing. me. :) and so i share it with you. :)

dorky newscasters

I swear to god the local newscaster person just said,

"and rob will be here to tell us how in just a day we abruptly went from summer weather to fall!!"

it's november 25th. i doubt there is anything drastic about switching into fall by now.

mar: have you guys heard about "turducken"?
bret: what is it?
mar: it's a chicken stuffed into a duck stuffed into a turkey and served on thanksgiving. that? that is disgusting.
bret: sounds fowl.

sigh, that bret. always ready for the pun-liners.

each day begins anew

, originally uploaded by JanXVI.

this photo gets me in the gut. in the heart. in my hopes.

i'm a sucker for mornings because they are a brand new start on a daily basis. this photo, with the spider web, reminds me that in every hardship there is a dawning.

thank god for that. thank god for that.

photo by jan in belgium. one of the most gifted photographers on flickr. he certainly does not post enough.

i had a great window seat and sometimes a reflection

me on the train, heading south and looking at the beautiful pacific. life is good.

day in the life: 6:45 am & heather's train pulls away

this'll be me (well, inside the train) in an hour. i haven't taken the train in about ten years, and this one meanders along the coast all the way to SoCal, so am looking forward to it.

i'm pulling my other posts. not because they don't ring true for me but because i'm not sure i expressed myself correctly. befuddlement often leads to befuddled writing.

and apropos of nothing really at all, just sitting here drinking my coffee and thinking holy hot damn, me? i make a mean cup of coffee. seriously.

from now on when people ask me what i like to cook, i'm gonna tell them coffee. :)

dilo june 2005: short skirt and a looooooong jacket

i got carded today. genuine real-deal bonafide carded. at the grocery story. for a bottle of wine. she asked for my ID at the very end of the transaction and i thought it was for my card.

"really?" i asked. "my id?" cuz if you have a store card they already have your identification.

"for the wine," she said and my tone totally changed cuz this was no pity carding. no sympathy carding. she was really asking and really asking me to pull out that damn id already.

i think i hopped in place a couple of times cuz i was so excited as i fished out my drivers license.

"oh!" she said when she saw my year of birth, but i did not care.

igotcarded igotcarded igotcarded igotcarded.

the thing is is, i know i don't look 21. but they gotta card you if you look under 30 and baby thatisgoodenoughforme!

the other thing is is, i actually dolook over thirty. however, i think my personality is hovering somewhere over age five (or is it fourteen) and that aura can confuse checkers.

and lemme tell you, i love every last confused one of them. dearly. with passion.
