i got a ride to work today from scott magnuson, director of the information office for the minnesota state senate. it's a long story. but the end of the story is that it's 8:02 and i'm at my desk, now aren't i?
i have to drive around all day and the heat index is predicted to reach 100. blech. i'm such a minnesotan.

sometimes i feel like i'm just brimming with love. so much it almost hurts. and sometimes what i want more than anything is to finally feel safe enough to pour it all out onto someone with complete abandon. but i wonder if i'll always be too cautious. i wish i could explain it better...

i have some of my most intelligent thoughts while performing the most mundane of tasks.
i also am more efficient at the most mundane of tasks when my mind is occupied with my most intelligent thoughts.
micah, you'd be proud. i've been sealing envelopes by counts of seven.
1. put envelope on table
2. pull tape
3. rip tape
4. fold down envelope flap
5. stick tape
6. envelope in hand
7. envelope on stack
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, blog entry, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7........

hormones can make you crazy. crazy angry, crazy sad, crazy stupid. but the crabbier and crazier i get, the nicer people are to me. and that is astounding.
some days i recognize how much growing up i have yet to do.
but dang it, i really wanted that walk in closet.

my life looks just about perfect on paper. and there's nothing tangible i could complain about, really. i'm in a good mood, well rested, was invited out for lunch with two of my "everyday" friends and one candidate for the position. then i worked (well... was AT work) for a few hours and now i'm going to buy some bread and make myself a sandwich, which sounds wonderful. however, something seems awry. what exactly it is i would be hard pressed to put my finger on. (if someone could please pick apart that sentence and critique it on the grounds of its excessive passivity and prepositional ending, i would appreciate it.) i like modest mouse.
i'm choosing between two houses. one has a garage, a ping pong table, two bathrooms and a spotless, though unfinished, basement. the other is absolutely gorgeous and has a kitchen to die for, a mini loft upstairs, a back deck and a basketball hoop. basketball or pingpong? neighborhood with walmart or co-op? garage or location? anal landlady who lives down the street or laid back camping man who only owns one property? how to choose i know not. and something is most definitely awry, but i don't think i mind much.

i have things to say. i bought new sunglasses. they are plastic and round. and i'm wearing a big red ring that cost 25 cents. i found a house i want to live in, but it's too expensive. i think we might live there anyway. lately, i've been sleeping until noon. i think it's just my body's terror of the impending rest of my life. starts on monday. set the timer on the coffee machine for 6:30. oof. (how would you spell that sound?). i should take the GRE's. maybe when i start getting bored of my job. i wonder how long that will take. i bought new earrings today. they are cool. my friend said that they are very "me." i think that means that i'm cool, too.
i like abby and lisa more than most people probably like anyone.
when you fall in love, really in love, i don't think you ever completely fall out of it.
garbage pickup costs $75 every three months. at the house i want, their twelve month average for gas and electric is $143.
i have about the cutest kitten that has ever lived. sometimes our older cat tries to bite her in the throat. i think she's jealous.
i'm going to go have a wild berry popsicle. because it's summer and i have bangs and new sunglasses.
and that's pretty much what i've been thinking about recently.
ps. oh, and that i think it's nice that God made flowers smell good as well as look pretty when we would have liked them if they were either one or the other. showing off a little, maybe...
