me to jr: will you marry me?
jr to me: yes.
me to jr: tomorrow?
jr to me: sure, but it'd need to be before noon.
also: an explanation of how this katrina program feels
"it's like a chicken trying to hatch out of the egg it's trying to lay"
indeed. today's looking better. tonight: christmas tree!?!?!

last night i cooked like a wild woman. this morning i brought enough food to work to last for a week's worth of lunches.
unfortunately, i didn't have time to eat any of it.
going home now, through the freezing rain.

some thoughts on heft:
if i weighed 15-20 pounds less, not only would i be ugly and unhealthy, i would also likely have broken teeth due to being tossed around by high winds this morning. i barely made it as it is.
if i weighed 50-75 pounds more, i would be ugly and unhealthy, but i would have been very safe this morning from aforementioned high winds, not to mention better insulated.
leaves and papers are blown about. cars and trucks are not. i am slightly more similar to leaves and paper and my walk to work (on stupidly chosen stiletto boots) was rather frightening.

sometimes i think things. and sometimes then i think "i hope i have pms, because if i don't, i need major help."
yesterday was a grand celebration of autumn. football. a fire crackling in the fireplace. hot bowls of chili for a houseful of appreciative boys, with all the fixings and big hunks of bread. pumpkin pie with a dollop of whipped cream. sweaters and scarves.
and today, dang it all, it's winter.

thank you, veterans, for the day off. i spent it doing nothing important, but believe it or not, i actually thought of you this morning and appreciated what you have gone through for me to have a cushy state job that pays me even when i don't work. i don't deserve it in the slightest.
feeling okay. also: some guy i met six years ago and don't remember called my parents' house looking for me. weird.

on massage therapists:
it is strange to be in a small, dimly lit room, mostly naked, with someone you don't know slowly rubbing nice smelling lotion into your back. somehow the fact that money changes hands through the funnel of insurance makes it okay.
i bet that there are sometimes very attractive people that come for massages and the therapist enjoys touching them. i bet there are six times as many people who are icky and the therapist is slightly repulsed by having to touch them.
i firmly believe in the power of human touch.
admittedly, i am becoming more of a yuppie every day.
also: i don't think that requiring that one parent of a fetus tell the other parent of the fetus that they're planning on terminating it makes the first parent any less of a person. it simply allows both parties credit for what they have created. the liberal argument on this issue seems full of holes to me.
today will be busy.

i catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and am pleased with what i've accomplished with my appearance today. so i put off getting ready for bed much longer than necessary and feel a little sad that these pretty hours are wasted with no one to appreciate them.

the sun warms the dirt
brings life and makes the world green
the trees grow tall and strong
with water that feeds them
falling from the sky like magic
and fruit forms
dripping firm and ripe from proud branches
like jewels on a kings finger
and i pick one
food straight from the earth
and eat it
and it pleases me
and brings me what i need
and believe that
there must be a God
