Semi-dramatic weather over UW (Day 4), originally uploaded by laurenipsum.

With the time change, the sun is way low on the horizon, getting close to setting, when I am leaving work.

We are the challengers of the unknown

If I could write, this is what I would write about: A sunny morning with the mountain out and Seattle misty and shining across the water; Neko Case challenging the unknown in my ears; a gull swooping and riding the wind in front of the boat.

Pour éclairer tes yeux de rêve

Dogs are snoring, and so is G. I am up late (but not that late) because Ten Things I Hate About You is on, and because I had a cup of coffee at about 3:30, and because my Friday night bourbon is accompanying me. (Julia Stiles has amazing hair in this movie.) I have an [...]

if only i could get the i-don’t-want-to-do-my-reading gods to listen.

(song: “outro (with bees),” neko case)

if you don’t know where you are, you might be lost

in direct opposition to ‘most everyone else ever, as far as i can tell, i am pleased that it appears to have decided not to snow, at least today. on the other hand, i was kind of excited about the idea of a snow day, so i’m declaring sunday to be Snow Day even if [...]

waits another week to fall apart

last night as i walked home from john & laura’s house, it was cold and windy and the air smelled like a wood stove. it was comforting and wintry and i was happy.
it was also winter on saturday night as i stood outside the art museum in the middle of the night in the rain. [...]
