A beautiful day to be bloated.

The birds are chirping, the sun is starting to peak out behind the clouds and I'm gassy as all hell.

Oh well, this soon will pass (get it??? - pass gas??? I am too funny).

Today I get to weigh in, go to the gym (cycling class was all filled up but hopefully there will be some no shows)... then I'm off to a script read through (my friend is making a movie)... and then my massage.

Did I tell you all that I'm crampy too?? I'm sure you wanted to know.

I better head out. I don't want to be late.

Friday/Payday - Yay!

so... last night's episode of Lost was really good... I had to stay up and watch it so that means that tonight I will be going to bed at 8pm... maybe I'll have a last chance workout too...

Isn't it always the shortest weeks that take the longest to get here? I think so...

I can't wait until 5:00pm.

If you couldn't tell I was a bit perturbed in my last post... People just make me cranky sometimes....

If I had a throwdown with the person who made me cranky I would win in a heartbeat.

I started late in my post this morning so I better go...

All you micro-managers out there - STOP! Someone is going to go postal on you! Don't say I didn't warn you....

People need to get a life.

Certain people need to worry more about their own crap than mine.... If I were breaking the rules I could understand them worrying - but I'm not, so get a life!

I know, what goes around comes around... I hope it comes around threefold! - And gives them a bad rash with welts and blisters.

excess overhang...

Last night as I was looking in the mirror during my body sculpting class I realized that I have a serious case of formerly fat girl extra skin overhang. That's the little lumpy roll of excess skin that doesn't shrink back when you lose weight. It may tighten up over time, but for now it's all hanging loose in between the band of my sports bra and the waistband of my pants... sort of like my tummy's very own double chin.

I know you are enjoying that visual.

Things are going along as they normally do... my lower back is a bit tight but I have a massage appointment on Saturday... my eyebrows are getting waxed tomorrow... it will be payday.... things could be much worse.

I am going to cross my fingers and hope that the weather clears up soon... I really want to get my legs exposed and work on my leg-tan...

I don't know what to do....

I'm not in the mood to work today. I don't want to get dressed and I don't want to be friendly. But I will, because I have to.

I suppose I should look at the bright side. Only a month until I get to go to camp - that will do me good.

Yesterday I had lunch with my friends Tia and Julie. Julie is on her way home from Bejing. She's been there the past five months learning Mandarin. I tried to convince her to move to Seattle. She asked me the other day why I didn't mention that Seattle was so enchanting. I guess I never thought of it as enchanting... if you've always lived someplace it's hard to forget the real beauty of the place. I guess it is nice, the water, the green-ness, the mountains - I suppose enchanting fits.

Last night I took a walk. I don't take nearly as many walks as I used to - maybe I should start taking more. Work on those legs in another manner...

I can do it!

I can get up and go to the dentist this morning. I can control what I put in my mouth today. I can learn how to love myself just the way I am!

I just need to give myself a little pep talk every once in a while.

I've decided I really don't like having to work for a living. At least working in a non-art related field...

Maybe I should go back and get my masters degree in museum studies or visual and critical studies... no, I've spent enough money as it is...

I just think that I should be doing more sometimes... If I could find a part time job that pays what a full time job does that would be ideal. Then I could have some spare time to work on art.

Who am I kidding, I'll just keep trudging along doing what I'm doing.

I updated jeneratorrunning with my results from the Beat the Bridge Run.... not photos though. I was looking at some of my earlier posts from races and it does appear that my thighs are shaping up nicely. That's something I can get excited about.

Only a little over a week and then we'll have high speed internet - I am very excited. My momma purchased an imac. It is beautiful, but she can't get on the internet yet because there is no jack to plug in a phone line without a modem (you see? dial up is so archaic!). Well, she can watch dvd's and listen to CD's on it which is nice. It makes me a bit jealous. The screen is so big! I need to find a benefactor.

Hello Monday.

It's nice to have a day off... especially since I went out last night and stayed out a little longer than I should have.

However, I did get to see Footloose again after many years so it was worth it.

Yesterday turned out to be pretty nice. I went to Greenlake and bought myself a new pair of running shoes so I should be all ready for the Race for the Cure in a few weeks.

Today my mother and I are going to go computer shopping. She's going to buy an iMac. It's going to be so exciting. Yay! On the fourth we're getting high speed internet! Everything is just swell around here.

The only thing that could make life better is if I had a teaching job, a tan and my right knee magically worked well. (someday I'll show you all my scars so you can see what I'm talking about)...

Besides shopping for computers, I will be attending the Slide Crawl tonight and maybe going to the mall to look at shoes. Ahhhhh, Nirvana!

Sunday, May 25, 2008

It's about time...

You were probably wondering where I was.

It's hard to keep up with things when you are involved with an almost-two year old.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! I sure hope everyone is having a good time and not getting too intoxicated or sunburned. That would be a bad thing.

I have had a bit too much cycling today but that's about it. Yesterday was a bit slow at Crawl Space, but what do you expect? It's a holiday weekend! I did manage to watch the movie Knocked Up while I was there. I give it a B. It is what it is.

Tomorrow night is the Slide Crawl... there's been a change of the artist lineup... Susan Robb has canceled but we have Eli Hansen instead. It should be a good time and everyone should come.

This afternoon I have to deliver some contraband items to my father (shampoo and windex)... as you probably guessed it's not really contraband, I just wanted it to sound more interesting than it was.

That's about it.

Saturday, May 24, 2008

I'm a cranky old woman.

I realize that sometimes I can come off as a bit cranky. I went to the MFA opening last night. It was alright... nothing too earth shattering though (in my opinion). When someone asked my opinion about the show I wasn't very positive - and now I feel kind of bad... maybe I just need to go back and look at it when there's not so many people around.

I am going to be sitting at Crawl Space today so all of you should come see the show and me! I think this will be a good opportunity to work on things. I always say that and end up not doing them...

My niece Katie is spending the night with us tonight. It should be interesting. It's going to be the first time she's been away from home.

I am cranky this morning... Not overly cranky but just cranky enough. Hopefully I will snap out of it soon.

Friday, May 23, 2008

The hairs on my chin.

I hate to say it but my chin hair seems to be growing faster than normal. Maybe I've hit peri-menopause? Maybe I'm just more anal about grooming.

Well, I didn't go to see the studio last night - something suddenly came up... okay it wasn't suddenly - something just came up. However, that did free me up to go to the gym and watch So You Think You Can Dance. I must say - as reality type talent shows go that is one of my favorite.

NEWS FLASH! As I got home from the gym last night my mother was talking to some guy in the house... IT WAS COMCAST! I will have high speed internet soon enough! Not to mention we will have On Demand and who knows - maybe I'll be able to record programs!

Oh, I am in love! With Comcast!

Okay, back to my life... Hopefully today will not be long and painful at work. People are bound to be antsy because of the three day weekend. Tonight I am going to the MFA show opening at the Henry Art Gallery for the UW Students and tomorrow I might possibly be sitting at Crawl Space.

My blog is boring... who wants to read about this crap? (okay - I was having a bit of self-doubt there...). Maybe it was my other personality speaking...

Thursday, May 22, 2008

Artificial knees.

I don't have lack of sleep to blame for the lame-ness of this post this morning. I did have a few dreams last night in the 8 hours of slumber (yes, I was in bed at 9:30)... first off in the dream world, one of the partners complimented me on how well I paged people, then I was walking down Lake City Way through a bunch of cross-dressers and into the a hair salon to see if I could get a manicure.

I think I had an "I'm almost going to have sex dream" too. Not one where you're actually having it, but you know you WILL have it. I suppose that's what happens when you aren't getting lucky with the boys...

okay, I should get off that subject because I want this to be a family friendly blog.

My supervisor is off work today and tomorrow. I told her not to worry - she said we were doing "Okay" not a "good job" but that's alright... I know I can handle the responsibility. I'll try not to get any paper cuts or dry hands from handling all that paper. I'll stock up on lotion.

Today I am going to lunch with my lovely assistant Kristen. We are going to Sazerac. I've never been there. Tonight I am looking at studio space - I might actually find someplace to make work.

Oh the excitement!

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

Is it Friday yet?

I was so in the mood to sleep in this morning. I think I could sleep for another five hours and It would feel great!

I do have the three day weekend to look forward to though...

I did find my results for the beat the bridge run. I think I ran it in 53.4 something... that's including my time with the bridge being up... maybe if I had trained I would have done better... there's always next time.

I signed up for the race for the cure... maybe I'll improve my time with that.

I got an email from a person I know (Linda) giving me an update on the one thing that I really can't talk about. It turns out that I won't be able to talk about it for at least another month or two... I'm been thinking it's been about a year since I haven't been able to talk about it.. so it's almost like it didn't really happen. But it did.

I think I'm ready for a vacation with a cute Italian boyfriend. Or an Italian vacation with a cute boyfriend... or just a vacation.

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

The lower half

of my body is not working too well this morning. I should have taken the day off from the gym last night but I didn't. I will take this evening off and let my knee, thighs, calves and ankles heal a little bit. The lower back ain't so hot either.

This morning I am going to the dentist to have a few fillings done. Oh goody!

Okay, back to me...(I supposed I never really strayed off the subject of myself..) I was trying to look up my results for the beat the bridge run but I can't find myself. When I type in my bib number it comes up with some 28 year old woman... I tried emailing the timing place but the email bounced back as undeliverable. That sucks. I want to know how I did... even with the four plus minutes I stood waiting at the bridge.

I've been contemplating finding a studio to make work in. My friend Tim is looking to share his studio and I'm tempted... there are too many reasons to find to not make work though... I have to think about it... I'm more interested in finding a cute running skirt than I am in finding a studio.

Okay, this just in - Katie Holmes is going to Broadway... it's sad really. I met someone in school who had worked on Dawson's Creek and she said that she wasn't the brightest bulb (if you know what I mean)... I bet she has thin thighs though.

Monday, May 19, 2008

Word on the street is...

that I looked "supercute" on the news... that's a relief. Too bad I didn't manage to impress any cute boys while I was stuck waiting for the bridge to go up and down... Oh well, they say the best laid plans (something something something...).

My legs feel like they are jello this morning - not as bad as I think they could be, but not so good either. Someone did tell me yesterday that I had nice legs.... that's nice.

I've been wearing my fit flops too so maybe that's helping as well.

Today - what is going on... work, cycling, looking cute... I think that's about it.

Maybe I will contemplate getting a running skirt... I like skirts and I sort of like running. Sort of... there were some people wearing them with more interesting looking legs than mine so I think I could pull one off.

Now I just have to find the next race to sign up for.

Sunday, May 18, 2008

maybe I should have trained more...

I have to run five miles this morning and I'm not sure I can do it... oh, I know I can do it - but it won't be pretty.

Last night I ended up helping wash dishes so I didn't make it to the opening at Crawl Space (which kind of sucks - but mom trumps opening)...

I'm not quite awake here - maybe you can tell... I just end up staring at the screen and zoning out. Maybe once I get moving I'll wake up.

Back to running - I didn't even have time yesterday to pick out a cute running outfit... oh well, if I get stuck behind the bridge people will just have to deal with me how I am...Naturally beautiful and tired looking.

Okay, I zoned out again... better get going.

Saturday, May 17, 2008

It's all about Saturday... and me.

I woke up disoriented this morning. I couldn't figure out if it was a weekday or the weekend... let's just say I'm glad I figured it out.

Not much time to post anything this morning because I need to get off to the old weigh in... then it's time for coffee and then the gym. I ended up not going to mop the gallery last night. I'm going to do it this morning after class.

Oh yes, I talked to a boy yesterday (sort of...). It's good to get out of your comfort zone every once in a while.

It's supposed to be nice again today - my self tanner worked out pretty well. Soon enough I'll have toned and tan legs!

I would have to say that the high point yesterday was finding the Whole Foods down on Westlake and 9th Avenue... Lot's of construction workers go there for lunch. I may have found my new place to hang out...

Okay everyone, remember your spf 30!

Friday, May 16, 2008

Hello pasty leggs...

get out the sunglasses! I just might bare my legs today and I don't want to blind anyone. Don't say I didn't warn you.

It's supposed to get into the mid 80's today - it will be just right.

I think I may have to start wearing my fit flops in order to get a good foot tan... my feet are naturally beautiful (with all their imperfections) and they look even better with a tan.

Sunday I am going to attempt to run in the beat the bridge run. I am hoping that the cycling classes will have paid off at least a bit when it comes to my endurance. I have to dig out the new microphone and figure out an outfit to wear... oh the excitement is building.

Tonight I am going to mop the gallery (I know, it sounds like fun but it has to be done)...

Work should be quiet today a few people will be out and that means I can get a bunch of filing done.

Hmmmm... maybe I should get going and put on some tan in a can (okay - really it's in a tube)...

Thursday, May 15, 2008

I think I'm alright...

It's Thursday. Although I can see the weekend in the distance there's still two days until it gets here and I'm not sure I can wait.

The body hurts....

On a purely trivial matter, I was glad to see Whitney become America's Next Top Model last night. It's time a realistic sized woman won this thing... In real life she's probably skinny and you wouldn't even realize she's known as "full figured" in her business.

Tonight the season finale of the Office is on and then Lost. I must say that I haven't been doing my television watching duties that well recently... I guess that's what happens when you start having a life.

I think that's about it today... I think I'll take a day off from the gym today. My knee is beginning to feel strange and I need to keep it in shape for Sundays run... That reminds me that I still need new shoes... and a boyfriend.

Wednesday, May 14, 2008

RIP Bob.

Robert Rauschenberg died yesterday. Here is an article about him.

Things have settled down surrounding the blog. I think maybe too much was made of it... now, if I were soliciting dates or running a prostitution ring with it I could understand the concern, but there's not anything exciting going on here.

Next Subject...
I'm not 100 percent sure but I think my thighs are getting littler since I started taking the cycling class. I measured them the other day - I just need to find my notes where I recorded their size earlier in the year.

Next Subject...
Property ownership... I've been thinking about the idea of buying property. I have the desire to own a piece of land... is it feasible? Am I out of my mind? Can I commit to that sort of endeavor? I'm mulling it over... Maybe when I sell enough artwork I can buy something... or just move to Italy. Maybe I could buy something in Italy?

I guess that's enough today... I think I might take the bus to the gym when I get off work and then walk home after cycling... that way I can do body sculpting, core and cycling. Look out skinny jeans...

Tuesday, May 13, 2008

We're headed for a scorcher...

It is reported that it will be in the 70's and 80's towards the end of the week. You know what that means. Self tanner weather. I am going to do an extra special job of shaving my legs and apply that magic lotion to bring out the glow in my pasty white legs... then I'll be able to wear all my cute skirts.

Now if I could just manage to walk in cute pointy-toed shoes without falling down that would make life perfect.

My father managed to lose his wallet in my car on Saturday... I'm going to return it tonight. Maybe I'll walk around Greenlake when I'm done - a different sort of thigh firming exercise.

Not much more to say this morning... I'm off to download my Death Cab for Cutie album on iTunes...

Monday, May 12, 2008

Gold Pointy Shoes of Death.

Well, I fell on the way into work this morning. I have got to get some different soles put on these shoes...

I don't think death is a fair trade-off for cute feet.

More muscles I forgot I had...

Saturday I did the body sculpting class and then cycling. I'm not sure if I was working harder than normal or if I'm just a wimp, but my body is still sore... this time it's the backside and the shoulders. Thank goodness I had that massage scheduled so I don't think I'm suffering as much as I could be.

I wouldn't really call it suffering though... I intentionally put myself through it.

Have I told you all that when I'm in the middle of my cycling class and don't think I can take any more I pretend that I am a contestant on Survivor and I am in an endurance challenge. I try to hold out the longest so I can take home the cash prize. In this case there is no prize (except a firmer leg and thigh area). It seems to give me the extra push I need. I also think about other areas that will benefit from this activity but I can't talk about them here... because of my younger readers.

Yesterday I spent quite a bit of time at Northgate, I didn't really do any serious retail therapy, but I did run into my friend Bill and we did some Mall Walking (yes - I am what you would call a mall walker)... I don't do it as much as I used to but I still do it. It was hard dodging all those people filing in and out of See's Candy. Hmmmm. Candy.

On this weeks agenda is an opening at Crawl Space on Saturday and training for the Beat the Bridge run on Sunday. I'll have to find my fancy new microphone to record myself when I'm running. I may also have to get a new outfit to run in... I have to look cute because if I get caught behind the bridge, I might run into my future husband while I'm waiting for the bridge to go back down.

I should probably get going now... I had dreams last night that I had my own apartment... maybe that's a premonition. I'm sure my mother would like to push me out of this nest...

Sunday, May 11, 2008

It's not you, It's me... seriously.

Why do I think anyone would be interested in this blog? It's all about me, my insecurities, my obsessions, my feet....

Karolina once told me that all my artwork was trying to say "look at me!". I was surprised and sort of hurt by that statement but she was right. At the time I didn't really see it but it was there. It's like this blog... my tiny attempt to say "look at me" on a global (and free) scale. Am I really that interesting? I don't know... I'm just normal (in a weird sort of way)...

I think my work tells stories about myself that are possibly too hard to write or talk about.... the way a musician sings to tell stories...

Okay, enough reflection. I'm off shopping. I am going to celebrate my mother by making myself happy... you know, happy daughter, happy family.

I may look at new running shoes for the beat he bridge run next week. In cycling class yesterday I got a compliment from the instructor... maybe all this work will improve the running considering I'm not in training....

Saturday, May 10, 2008

Weclome to my exciting life.

It consists of a few things.

Eating, sleeping, art-making(sometimes), blogging and working.

That's about it.... you won't find anything too interesting here.

Maybe I can get myself into some trouble and cause a scandal! No, that's not my style... as the description of my blog says - I'm just an almost middle-aged woman trying to get lucky. In life that is.

And what I said yesterday about being stimulated, I only meant that in the purest of ways... seriously.

Okay now, I guess this is over. The post that is - I've got to go gear myself up for another weigh in.

Friday, May 09, 2008


Someone at work googled me...

And I don't mean Google in the way I use the term in my artwork... (some of you will know what I'm talking about). Someone actually spent a bit of time here at the Rant...

I wonder if this person will actually tell me they're looking at the blog... If they dig deep enough they might find out all the dirt on me - like my obsession with rotisserie chicken and my desire to find the cutest pair of shoes that doesn't hurt my feet.

Speaking of shoes, I fell down on the way to work yesterday and skinned the top of my foot. I also hurt my cute gold pointy-toed shoes...

I may have to make a date with my chiropractor being that I landed pretty hard on my left side and my body is a bit sore (or is that because of my desire to attain a firm mid-section?)... I don't exactly know, but I do know I hurt.

Next subject... I got my economic stimulus check deposited in the bank today... I'm going to stimulate the economy by getting a massage tomorrow and then putting the rest in savings. I enjoy being stimulated... hmmmmm.... yes I do.

Thursday, May 08, 2008

Slow synapses.

Once again I am exhibiting symptoms of being old (or just being overextended)... I really did not want to get up this morning... finally I got out of bed and hooked up the laptop... I was going along trying to check my stats for the blog and couldn't figure out why it was taking so long. Well, my connection failed and it took me a good five minutes to figure out that it was down.

It's going to be a good day - I can tell.

My body survived abs and cycling for now... the story may change by tomorrow morning.

Today I am having lunch with some friends from my old place of employment. I haven't seen them for at least 3 years... they work down in the Portland and Vancouver area. I like seeing people I haven't seen for a while.


Michael (TCBFC) and his wife are going to have a baby! That's good news.... but it just reminds me that my eggs are shriveling up and being expelled while I type... it's like the big timer on Days of Our Lives... slowing emptying into the abyss. Oh well, at least I'll have firm thighs.

Wednesday, May 07, 2008

I don't understand it?

I don't understand a lot of things.... why do I have such a hard time getting out there and meeting people, why do I have such a hard time waking up in the morning sometimes? Why do birds suddenly appear (no, wait that's a Carpenters song...).

NO rhyme or reason to this post this morning I guess.... I did make an appointment to get a massage this Saturday... hopefully it will help my achy neck and shoulders...

This evening I'm planning on taking the abs from hell class and cycling as well. We'll see if I can walk tomorrow.

On the art front, I am going to distribute postcards today for the next show at Crawl Space.... it's called Landmark and features the work of Jenene Nagy and Eroyn
Franklin... it opens on the 17th.

I guess that's it for this morning... I know you're waiting for more but there is none.

Tuesday, May 06, 2008

Is it Friday yet?

Yesterday at work both the receptionist and the backup were gone. I only had to sit up at the desk for the afternoon, but you probably know by now it's not my favorite thing to do.

I'd rather rather walk over a bunch of hot coals into a swimming pool filled with cat pee than answer the phones for the rest of my life. I don't mind answering the phones, I just don't like being tied to one spot. It puts a cramp in my style...

Well, here's a status update for the breakdown of my body... my neck is now very stiff... I think it's a result of using my shoulders the other day and overcompensating with my neck (or something like that). I may have to make a date with the Chiropractor soon.

Tonight I have an appointment to get my hair fixed... I must say I will take the trade-off of beautiful hair for pushing papers around for 8 hours a day. I actually didn't have to deal with all those icky roots this time (they are camouflaged very well).

Hmmm... I'm feeling crampy - great, just what I need. PMS to the tenth power.

Monday, May 05, 2008

coming to you live from a bus!

I happened to get on a 522 this morning that is equipped with wifi so I am coming to you live on my way to work.

Right now we are riding along Lake City Way (We're really close to Dick's Drive In Right now).

Hopefully we won't have any abrupt stops so my laptop won't go crashing into the aisle.

I'm sitting in the back and a gentleman just sat next to me (he smells a bit like an ashtray - but that's alright.)

I like the idea of being able to blog on a bus... maybe I should just ride the routes and do postings on public transportation.

I guess that's going to be it for now... since I've got the free wifi I am going to update my iTunes...

(my laptop almost fell off my lap there.... I better go.).

You know you're getting old when...

You know you're getting old when you can't stay up past 11 p.m. without it ruining your life.

The brain is moving a bit slower than normal this morning. I'm not sure if I can come up with anything witty to say.

Yesterday was slow at the gallery, even so, I didn't get any of the work done that I wanted to... when I got home I just vegged out on the sofa for the rest of the evening.

I did almost nothing this weekend and I kind of liked it.

Maybe I should do nothing more often.

Sunday, May 04, 2008

Even more sore??!?

Yesterday I decided to partake in a Body Sculpt class. It's description is as follows - Strength training with light weights and bands for lean muscle mass. It should say 30 minutes of work to remind you of the muscles you forgot you had.

Those muscles would be triceps, deltoids, glutes and quadriceps.

I think I will survive but it may take a day (or two). I think I might take a day off from the gym.

I am going to be sitting at the gallery today so you should all stop by and see Tony's show while you can.

I'll take some photos today and try to post them next week.

I think I should get off my strained glutes and get ready for the day.

Saturday, May 03, 2008

Break out the big underwear.

It's official. I had to put on big underwear today. My underwear is a barometer to my weight. When I start getting too big my underwear rolls down and gets caught under my roll of excess skin/belly fat and makes it very uncomfortable to live.

You might have noticed that I used the word underwear here as opposed to panties. I dislike the word panties with a passion. Panties go on pork chops or rack of lamb... that's it.

and who in their right mind wears a matching bra and "panties" set? Only runway models that I know of.... Real women wear underwear.


What to do?

I'm not really in the mood to do anything today.

I'd like to sleep.

I'm kind of cranky.

My body still hurts.

I have to weigh in and I'm not dreading it exactly but I'm not looking forward to it. I need some motivation to get back on track.

Maybe it's the pms talking here...

Friday, May 02, 2008


I thought I was sore yesterday but I was wrong. It feels like an elephant sat on my chest for five hours...

Last night I went to First Thursday and ran into two of my friends from the UW. I haven't seen them in a long time. It's nice to see people you haven't seen in a while... Trina and Stephanie studied in Rome with me back in the day. They are both painters.

Well, it's Friday and the sun is shining (sort of)... maybe something exciting will happen today...

While I was flying home on Monday I thought about blogging about the following things.

People who make out on airplanes (there was a couple across the aisle from me)...
People who disregard the instructions of the flight crew (using those electronic devices and going to the restroom while the fasten seatbelt sign is on)...
and, my chicken-ness.

Maybe someday I will blog about them.

Here is what Regina Hackett said about Tony Weather's show at Crawl Space.

Thursday, May 01, 2008

I forgot that I have abs...

Last night I went to the gym and took a "Core Strength" class and then did cycling.

I feel like I've been hit by a truck. Seriously, I had to roll myself out of bed. My obliques are barking. I suppose this is a good thing though... in addition to having firm thighs by summer, I'll have a four pack! (I'm starting small)...

My butt hurts from sitting on the saddle of the bike...

I had some weird dreams last night... I do remember there being snacks involved (cake) and sitting in a car listening to the radio... an invitation to ride a motorcycle and that's about it... one of those vague dreams... Chuck McGifford was involved (I attended elementary and middle school with him... possibly high school as well but I don't recall). It was strange, but not that strange.

tonight I am meeting up with my friend Tia (the jewelry maker) and we're going to first Thursday... Also, my friend Jenna is dressing up like a 40 foot tall cake and dancing on Harbor Steps so that should be interesting as well...

I guess I should pack it up now... I think it might take a little longer than normal to get ready since I can't really move.
