This winter seems endless...


Feels like I need to hibernate just a bit longer. Plans for the evening: laundry, cooking a big batch of pepper steak, and (hopefully) watching Notes on a Scandal on DVD.

Can't wait to see the temps hit 50, and maybe take the dog for a walk...

I should blog more...

But I've actually been writing like mad for the last week or so. Severe anxiety sends me right to the poetry journal, usually. Lots of persona stuff, because it's fun to contemplate being someone else, especially when I'm feeling blah.

Perhaps I am writing too many persona poems, but it's good therapy.

A few delays with a website project, which is a tad frustrating. I like being able to cross stuff off my to-do list.

I also like being able to work from home, but I think it's making me a little batty.

Waking up from the funk...

I hope! It's February, and I've been a tad morose since X-mas. Today, things seem a bit brighter. (even without the sun!)

Three acceptances (for eight poems total) last week, which is pretty awesome! (More about that later.)

I even feel up to working on my own personal website (which has been nothing more than a non-functional home page graphic for over a year now.) I've redesigned it about four times, but just never felt satisfied. (thus, I never uploaded the damn thing.) I'm starting over (again) with something simple, but hopefully still professional looking (kind of!). I hope to have it up by sometime next month...we'll see...

I'd also like to try writing more prose stuff. It might be fun to do something different, eh?

I think the weather is starting to get to me...I'm looking forward to spring! I'm tired of wearing wool sweaters every day. Enough already!

It's even too crappy to take Harley for a walk. Slushy. I always come home with wet jeans' legs.

I am seriously tired of winter.


I bundled up and went out in the sleet/snowstorm to see Atonement yesterday.

Brilliant. The cinematography just blew me away. Well worth going to see on the big screen!

Check it out:

I am too nice:

I often avoid saying "fuck" when really, no other word describes so many things, so well.


I avoid conflict whenever possible, often to my own detriment.


I really do want a tattoo, but I keep wimpin' out.


In my next life, I'd like to be a total badass.
