Don't post on here very much. Wanted to let people know that I'm heading off on a road trip to drop off a friend in Austin. Will be driving through the Bay Area, LA, Arizona and maybe a stop somewhere in between there and our final destination. Leaving on Wednesday (assuming I can get myself together).

Mary's 70th birthday is August 12.

For those of you who do not watch my facebook or Twitter, I put up a video of my sister's kitten, Tofu, getting his head stuck in a glass. Just for a moment, but it's still cute.

|A Threatening Letter
I am going to shoot you in the fucking face. Your sinister spit knots up my hair long after I have washed away your nauseating mucus. Your suffocating shit reeks of menacing methane and let’s not even talk about what it’s done to my shoes. Catastrophic camelid, it’s war! And I’ve stained all my white flags with yellow bile Current Mood: scapegoating fury

Fuck My Cortisol Levels.
It was hilarious to me at 3am last night when there was yelling and glass breaking.

Gotta love mothers.
Her: You've gotten bigger.
Me: Yeah. I've gained 10 lbs.
Her: Oh? Is that all? Current Mood: inflated

Kenya is a sexist country, I figured so. What I didn't expect is that the visa paper work going to the consulate in Los Angeles would also be sexist.
One question asks for "Full names of Father/Husband/Wife (Next of Kin)"
The fill in sections ask for a first name, a middle name, and a last name, and then there is a section for "relationship."
The following asks, "Name of husband or wife in the case of married persons or father if unmarried"
There is a fillable section for first name, middle name, and a last name. Then it forces you to select from husband, wife, or father.
Nowhere does it ask for your mother's information. Being ornery, I filled in my mother's info for the first question and my father's for the second.

|Dear Housemate's Crazy Ex-girlfriend,
Ok. So you're fucking crazy. You stalked my housemate on our street on his way to work, at a bar where you know he does open mic, and outside his work.
Do not fucking come to my house!
I had wondered for a while why you hadn't showed up here before. I hope it was because you were fucking terrified of his housemates. You probably knew I'd shut the door in your face and I did. I guess drinking a lot and taking sleeping pills makes you brave. It also makes you puke up on my walkway and I end up having to hose it down while my overly accommodating roommate walks you home.
There is a walk in mental health clinic about 15 blocks away. You need to go there.
The Angry Housemate Current Mood: angry and sick

It's a lie that she's my gilfriend. It's the truth that I love her more than any other.

I'm leaving for New Zealand in 9 days. A lot of people I know and encounter are going to Burning Man. I haven't spent too much time thinking about Burning Man in months and months. It feels easier to tell people I'm not going to Burning Man because I'm going to New Zealand than to tell them it didn't really work out for me. If they had a good self-affirming time, it's difficult for them to hear I didn't share their love. It's more diplomatic but it's also easier because I don't have to talk about how my body is weak and I'm incapable of relating to almost everyone in the world. (Thank you to all the patient and interesting souls out there who can have relationships with me.)
I've been out of Portland so much in the past month that I've barely been able to see anyone. If you're free between tomorrow and the 29th, let me know. I'd like to see you.

How many of you use LinkedIn and for those of you who do, how many of your find it professionally useful? Current Mood: heatwave cranky
|Monday, July 27th, 2009|
As we do not get the pleasure of your services for most of the year, I feel that we should be exempted from the mandatory heat wave.
104 degrees. Current Mood: hot

I'm in Portland again. The trip to Santa Barbara was fabulous. I put up some pictures on facebook and will put up more on flickr at some point. Too exhausted now to do anything except play with the internet. Here is a video I took, sneaking up on some Black Skimmers.

|It's fucking nice
I'm still in Santa Barbara. Joy is working on GRE prep so I'm poking the internet because I'm too lazy to read right now. We went wine tasting and explored a charmingly cheesy Danish village called Solvang.
I would like to share with you this website shared with me by Kristin.
The Fucking Weather
Although, it would be more interesting if it had more features. I have yet to see it have an opinion about anything other than the weather.
Joy's dog won't stop farting.... Current Mood: sleepy

I'm unbelievably excited to have adventures surely involving glitter and sexy photographs with fabulous ladies in California starting next weekend. I'll be in Santa Barbara from July 18-26th.
Then I'm back in Portland for only a few days before I go back to Maryland for a couple weeks for a wedding and to see my parents. I'll be in MD from August 1-13th.
I was looking through my much neglected moleskine and saw a few really short poems that I wrote last summer. Most of them are embarassingly terrible of course, but there were a few that I thought were cute.
from 8/26 (probably during Burning Man)
A hula hoop,
a giddy way to dance-
few steps to learn
and a few feet of clearance. Current Mood: chipper

|goin' to california with an aching in my heart
I'll be in SoCal from July 18th to July 26th. Mostly I'll be in Santa Barbara, but there could be a bit of Irvine in the beginning of the week. Also, I make no promises to stay in one place. There are some wily, adventurous ladies in SoCal. Current Mood: mild sleep dep
