err….procrastinating… you know

Your Birthdate: August 17
Your birth on the 17th day of the month suggests that you are very lucky financially, because this date indicates a solid business sense.

Although you are probably very honest and ethical, this birthday enables you to be shrewd and successful in the world of business and commercial enterprise.

You have excellent organizational, managerial, and administrative capabilities enabling you to handle large projects and significant amounts of money with relative ease.

You are ambitious and highly goal-oriented, although you may be better at starting projects than you are at finishing them.

A sensitivity in your nature, often repressed below the surface of awareness, makes it hard to give or receive affection.

What Does Your Birth Date Mean?

Your Kissing Purity Score: 29% Pure

You’re not one to kiss and tell…

But word is, you kiss pretty well.


You Are a Fool

You Are a Fool
For Eric Only

you are a fool to consider me beautiful
-Billy Collins, Nightclub

I stood you up.
Flowers and smiles
entered my mind
when you did.
So I stood you up.

You, aspiring poet,
could not neglect
the Laureate’s talk
(how could you?)
so you went alone.

You went alone,
hoped I would show,
late, or call.
When you checked
email, it was there,
patient, the message:

I felt things change between us (at least on my end)

I stood you up,
despite connection
and potential.
Ache was too close,
still, and I had not
told you, and you
could not know.

I called you,
from Paris, to thank
you for the birthday
letter, and I am glad
you did not answer.

I am glad, the ache
is too close, and I
stood you up.

Abandoned Spirit

Sawdust hovers in atmosphere
moist rich and heavy
flamed by sliced sun rays

A spirit slides through, stirs
the silt of sawdust and dustbunnies
into vortices swirling, following
to a separate room

Cataracted windows black light
the star’s beams from lemon
to mango to deep pomegranate
that clings to swirling dust
like silt at the bottom
of the ocean.


I know, these two posts below this are annoying. They’ll rotate off soon enough, I just don’t know how to FTP into blogspot. If anyone knows, drop me a line.
Just trying to index things so they’re easy to find.
(one of my pet peeves is people not understanding the differences between there, their, and they’re)

Despite what the illustrious Dooce says, eventually I am going to write about my job, and the last one, and the one before that. I just got a great laugh outa her blog.

Thought I Might Mention

I received The Time-Traveler’s Wife as one of my presents on Wednesday, and I’ve totally doven into it. Unlike Lightness of Being the naration in this novel is non-existant. The whole story is narrated by the two main characters. I’m very impressed with it so far, and I’ll post more as I get further along.
