"Wow! Something to think about . . ."--Michèle
"I love the taste and feel of words on my tongue and in my head. I love it when they come out when I am writing with feeling and I come “out of it” to read what I have written and I can’t believe that I have written what is on the screen or paper. It is a passion, a deep feeling of love for writing and the written word. I am only half way following my calling half way. I needed this kick in the butt, thank you very much."--Shelli
"This is beautiful ... I am twisting and turning but I’m afraid that my student loan payment has tasted more of my writing efforts than I have."--Tammi
Now that a new hard drive is installed I have to reload OS X Tiger and get back to the business of designing a magazine.
One woman tells a guy: "Yeah, when I used to do illegal drugs I used to really look down on people who didn't. That was so immature--don't you know. Now I'm into herbal teas."
One woman says to second woman: "I am like so not into teaching any more. I used to be like into the teaching thing but I've beyond that now. You know what I'm saying?"
A man at a table behind me throws a newspaper on a table and says: "I wish someone would just kill [name withheld]."
|You Are Dr. Bunsen Honeydew|
- You take the title "mad scientist" to the extreme--with very scary things coming out of your lab.
- And you've invented some pretty cool things, from a banana sharpener to a robot politician.
- But while you're busy turning gold into cottage cheese, you need to watch out for poor little Beaker!
- "Oh, that's very naughty, Beaker! Now you eat these paper clips this minute."

One African-American woman trying to get the attention of second African-American woman who is on a cell phone and moves away from the first woman: "I hate blacks trying to act white."

One woman says to second woman: "I'm so stressed I smoked two packs today."
A young woman says into her cell phone: "No, he's Irish and speaks English."

"There is something eerie about the little note of trivia at the end that I can’t put my finger on but I like it. I also like the clean, concise language as well."
"Normally I’m not a fan of Haiku, but I like this a great deal."
Over the Rhine offered some of their new songs which will be featured on their upcoming album. One song has been spinning around my cranium all night. Karin introduced the song with a dedication to Juicy. Linford had invited Juicy to tour with OtR, but Juicy initially declined because he "retired" and didn't want to leave his wife and family for a tour. After a series of conversations, Juicy said he wouldn't go unless they went deep. "I'm not touring unless you're ready to go deep," he said.
I don't know the title but the lyrics go something like this: I'm not going to waste your time on a song you don't need.
I needed their songs last night.
