It's so interesting to see what I prayed for. What I asked for. How I talked about God and myself. Then they quickly moved to wine-fueled scramblings about… Continue reading new chapter? hell, a whole new book.
Work has been more awesome than usual lately. It might have something to do with the fact that I'm not in grad school anymore.

After running some errands today, I decided I wanted a Dairy Queen Blizzard. Okay, who am I kidding? I had brought along coupons I've been saving for DQ. The whole point of this excursion was to get a Blizzard. Driving through town, towards DQ, I saw a hitchhiker. And I thought to myself, Self, you… Continue reading lethal poison for the system.

A couple things from the girl on Vicodin*... I first saw this short film in Sydney... at the Banff Film Festival. It was so incredible for me to watch it, to be there. Sydney was rough.
