Sometimes I think I adopted the only cat without exceptional reflexes and balance. I grew up with a few cats in my home and all were capable of navigating the house without incident, save one unfortunate broken leg which we’ve always suspected came from a push and not a fall (I’m looking at you, sister!). Isn’t it a requirement that cats always land on their feet and know...

nzle: 1. I woke up last Friday feeling terrible, and realized after an hour of laying in bed and glaring at the walls, unable to get up (and, it must be said, shouting angrily at a not unsympathetic but slightly impatient Jarrett about just how terrible I felt) that I hadn’t been alone — really alone,… This is everything.

I’m really contemplating adding “watch a marathon” to my life list. Not RUN a marathon but WATCH one. I don’t think I need to point out all the things that are wrong with this. I know I should be ashamed of my lack of ambition but I just think it would be really fun and exciting to cheer for runners as they pass. For now I’m not going to examine why I’m...

Mess, party of 1.
I reblogged the universe tonight. I haven’t been on Tumblr in a long long time. Good to know people are still posting videos of animals doing ridiculously adorable things, reblogging emo quotes and uploading photos of their breakfast. Speaking of people photographing their meals, somehow this always makes me feel like these people have their shit together. Not only did they have time...

Discomfort = Early to Rise
Sometimes, when I’m worried I won’t wake up on time, I sleep on my couch. No big deal.
Amendment to previous post: I am sunburned and happy but also a little hurty and pinchy.

Today an adult patron, probably in her 40’s, came into the Children’s Room at the library looking for easy readers. I assumed they were for a child but then she told me they were for her because she can’t read or write and she’s learning. I really admired that woman’s honesty. She didn’t have to tell me and it can’t be easy going through your life...

Nothing better than the sweet relief of changing out of a dress after a day of feeling awkward and man-ish. My ultimate life goal is to one day wear a dress and not feel like a complete and utter mess.
Maybe I should be embarrassed about this but I’m going to go ahead and put it out there anyway. Since I’ve returned from Ireland I’ve been spending a great deal of time watching former ABC Family show “Wildfire” on Netflix instant streaming. We got like 3 channels in most of our B&Bs and for some reason this and Everwood were always on in the morning with no...
The plant by the parking lot side door of my building smells like funerals and death. It smells like despair in general. Every time I put my key in the door it says, “Welcome home. Breathe in my sadness.”
