Personnel File


- Say hello to Art Dorks. (via sweetney)

- "We’re working. There’re high winds at sea. Giant sheets of ice are breaking on the hull and I can feel it shake through my knees. We’re surrounded by great mountains of rock. We’ve taken lovers. We’ve crossed the threshold. We desire the Unknown. We may already be lost." Hmm, okay. The Constantines Tournament of Hearts is out. I haven't heard it yet, but Shine a Light was one of my favorite albums of 2003.

- Powered by a handcrank and Magic Faerie Dust.

Around 7:45 PM last night, you would have found me curled up tightly in a ball on the (increasingly mud-and-decaying-leaf-caked) kitchen floor, laugh-crying so hard I couldn't breathe. I was eating a delicious granny smith apple, and looked across the room to the husband, who was watching me intently, copying my every move. But instead of eating an apple, he was eating a block of Colby Jack cheese, bigger than a newborn's head. He was eating it like an apple, big disgusting slimy yellow bites of cheese.

It was the grossest and funniest thing I have ever witnessed.

I may have to quit my job, or at least turn Brown Dog over to social services, complete with a dramatic and heart-wrenching Lifetime Network-y scene about how I love him but can’t take care of him, and will find him again some day. I will be back, brown dog!!!!!!! Remember me!!!!!!

* (Portland involves Rick. And Rick... well, Rick involves a number of things, as the N. is happy to tell you. Rick and the N. were roommates, once, but the two of us met Rick separately, and were friends with Rick separately; which is an unusual thing, for people like us to do the separate thing. Rick and I used to sit in the hallways of art buildings, laying on cold tiles at 3 AM; talking about life and what to do with it/about it. Rick used to dedicate Steely Dan songs to me at 3 AM, when he worked night shifts at a classic rock station. Rick had 23 majors before graduating, and a girlfriend who broke his heart. Rick works shady jobs, moving from city to city. We saw Rick at a diner two Sundays ago, we had brunch and the put him and his skateboard on a Greyhound, bound for the wild unknown.)
