While others’ Revenge of the Sixth probably involves hangovers from Cinco de Mayo, mine involves not having slept in over 24 hours.
I watched three episodes of “House” this morning/afternoon while working out with my 2- and 5-lb hand weights, and my 2.5-lb ankle weights, and even used my imitation Thighmaster for my upper arms [...]
I have two external hard drives. On one, there is basically a history of my time since I began using the internet, continuing until I got divorced. On the other is my history since then. The first one is substantially more full, but only because there’s much more music on it, and so much less [...]
HEAR YE, HEAR YE: Another piece of neologism straight from my mind and into your vocabulary! (See: “Wasband.”)
“Boobaliciousness” – A word describing the state of being in which one is either in possession of a very large pair of boobs, or a spectacular (no matter the size) pair of boobs. A nominalization of the [...]
I’ve always had awesome teeth growing up. The occlusal surface of my molars is such that I’ve had two fillings, but they were both “your teeth are wrinkly, and we’re doing this to make the surface less dynamic, which will prevent cavities in these teeth later on,” so I’ve never actually had a cavity. [...]
I’m currently on 10/500 hydrocodone/acetaminophen (Lortab) for menstrual pain. My prescription is 60 pills per month, and I often don’t go through all of them, but end up with a little less than half left over when my period is finished. Basically, I take around 4 per day for 7 or 8 days (the max [...]
I went to the doctor, and I’m back on a pretty ridiculous dose of lortab due to the fact that my periods have suddenly decided to last for two weeks, cramping all the while.
In slightly-hilarious news, while speaking with my doctor about the issue, I said, “You know, as soon as I have [...]
Several days ago, my babysitting charge (Bean is her nickname, so she will henceforth be known by that moniker here and elsewhere) apparently got into the cat food and proceeded to eat it like popcorn. I wasn’t there, so I’m not sure what happened, only that she apparently ate enough to screw her stomach up [...]
Those white shadows on my face
they show the empty space
where once I had a smile.
The sun, it burns a hole
into my little soul
and now I need to rest a while.
“Hello,” you say, “it’s nice to see you,
what’s it been, over a week?
You want a cup of [...]
If there was ever any doubt where I would end up in five years, I hope that it’s been laid to rest once the news had reached your ears. You never thought I’d make it, not without you by my side, but when I took that leap of faith I had to let it ride.
Learning to play the guitar, finally.
The Schecter Diamond Series electric to the left is courtesy of Domino (a high school nickname I can’t stop using), my accompanist, who loaned it to me so that I could practice on a guitar without so much force needed to hold down the strings. The Washburn Lyon [...]
