Car Stuff Coming Out My Ears

Today I feel a little bit like I've been beaten up. Visited my car. Pretty sure it will never drive again. It doesn't even power up. All I do is talk to insurance agents, and get told about x-rays and gap insurance. I hate driving every time I get into the rental car. I look at everyone driving and I SEE them looking at their phones, and talking on their phones, and picking stuff up off the floor of their cars, and looking into the seats next to them, and I just want to scream. I'm a screamer…See More

Bad Day

It's like when someone does a number on your car by whizzing through a stop sign at 40 mph, and you're pretty sure the insurance adjuster's going to say the thing is totaled (and it's not anywhere near paid off yet)--then, baby, you are up the creek.So, I am up the creek with a sore neck but at least I'm not dead and thank heavens the kids were not in the car.I really wish people would be more fucking careful. See More

Plagiarism is for Scumbags

Well, I'm a poet who rarely reads poetry, but when I hear poets talk about plagiarism, I can't believe people have the audacity to actually do that. Perhaps an unknown writer would use another unknown writer's work thinking they'd never get caught. Or it's possible that a well-known writer could plagiarize an unknown author's work. Either way, it would be completely abhorrent and reprehensible--but I suppose it actually does happen. There seems to be no limit to how creepy some people can be.…See More

New Addictions to Add to the Heap

Now, instead of coming home and sitting on the couch and watching Glee for six hours while eating a five pound bar of Trader Joe's 72% chocolate, I decided to do one of the following:a.) Cast aside all the weirdness of my life and just be normal. Just SIT, without EATING everything in sight all the damn time.b.) Find out what bourbon was. It's actually whiskey. You can cook with it. Peach cobbler.c.) Take a cold shower, followed by a hot shower, followed by a cold shower, followed by nail…See More

Crazy Shootings all the Time

We've got enough crazy people running around this country without flooding the land with guns. I wonder what happened to this kid Dylan Roof to make him turn out the way he did? Everybody says racist parents happened to him, but I haven't heard what these racist parents have to say about it. All I know is that he changed schools a lot. I changed schools a lot as a kid, too, but I never wanted to murder anyone. We should make potential gun owners take routine personality tests and meet certain…See More

Moments Later

Here's an example of how a day goes for me:At the crack of dawn, alarm clock blares some kind of music. I don't even know what it is. If it's news, I only half hear.  -- I make somebody's lunch (es). Feed cat. Stand stupidly.Then I do a ton of chores.Then....................................I go to work.................and work, and work .................................................and work ..........................................and work, and work-work-work-work-work.    Until lunch when…See More

Joan of Arc

Got this audiobook by Kimberly Cutter called Maid. It has wonderfully lush descriptions of 15c life. And--I thought maybe it was a big sacrifice that J. remained virginal--but it was only until she was nineteen-when--ouch--she got burned at the stake. She was busy with leading an army, with visions, etc. She didn't know what she was missing. She only occasionally envies married life. She had no ears or eyes for anything but God. Who would believe a peasant girl capable of leading armies to…See More

Waiting to Hear about the Gay Marriage Issue

Yesterday at a bar some guy who looked like a skinny Grizzly Adams sketched me in profile. It wasn't bad but the kids said it made me look:a.) like a frickin' slutb.) older than I actually amc.) like a supreme court justice on crackd.) like a vacuum cleaner with eyese.) very cosmopolitanf.) like I was impatient to find out if all the gays can get married everywhere or whatJune 15th is coming soon!

And what to do?!

I want to go running, and start an oil painting, and clean up a little, and write and read. And and and and and!

Hi Phoebe,

LOL! Maybe my NEXT mansion will be in Beverly Hills. :) My mom worked all over -- Warrington, Doylestown... Bristol? I think she had some sort of training (as a caseworker) in Perkasie. Ah, PA... Don't ask me why. But, the old Pennsauken Mart and Cherry Hill mall (NJ) just leaped into my head. Get out!!
