Life at an Intersection

Chicago Phoenix, indemnity bonds, journaling, really really really want a zigazig ah, travel, books, travel books, relationships, values. It is hard to pinpoint precisely, but I'd say about 82% of what you read here is true. The rest is fictional nonfiction.

Roll On


I got my work wife Sofia a Snuggie for her birthday last week. She enjoyed the joke.

How do you like the new page updates? I know that the colors and layout of this blog have been gouge-your-eyes-out ugly for a long time, so I spent a little time doing some research and fiddling around this last weekend, and here's what I came up with. Hope it is a little easier to look at and a little more enjoyable, too.

Speaking of eyes, my new glasses shipped yesterday! I can't wait. I bought a new old coat at Urban Outfitters this past weekend, too. It is a really cool refurbished Sears cordoroy coat with big lapels and roomy front pockets and fuzzy lining. It looks like the kind of coat I've seen my Grandpa wearing in old black and white photos, so I imagine that it was his once upon a time, and I've just acquired it for the family once again.

In slightly more unsettling news, I've developed a couple of weird little tics in the last few weeks. Let me tell you about them so that you can make fun of me more effectively and accurately. I've started making this little kapow explosion sound (like when the coyote falls off the cliff while chasing the roadrunner) when something doesn't go well or I mess something up or there is confusion or negativity. Also, I've taken to rolling my eyes. I do it on the bus when someone is an idiot. I do it several times a day when one of my coworkers says ignorant, stupid, or obnoxious things. I do it constantly when watching the oh-so predictable plot twists of The L Word.

I'm really craving a Blizzard from Dairy Queen tonight. That would be nice.

I like the new layout and colors. But the old colors did not make me want to gouge out my eyes. I like the picture at the top.

There is a DQ within walking distance of my house. I thought about going for a blizzard today but I didn't. If you were here we could go get one.

Words That I'm Living By - 5/2/2010

Time, as I've known it
Doesn't take much time to pass by me
Minutes into days, turn into months
Turn into years, they hurry by me
But still I love to see the sun go down
And the world go around

Dreams full of promises
Hopes for the future, I've had many
Dreams I can't remember now
Hopes that I've forgotten,
faded memories
But still I love to see the sun go down
And the world go around

And I love to see the morning
as it steals across the sky
I love to remember and
I love to wonder why
And I hope that I'm around
so I can be there when I die
When I'm gone

I hope that you will think of me
In moments when you're happy and you're smiling
That the thought will comfort you
On cold and cloudy days
if you are crying
And that you'll love to see
the sun go down
And the world go around
And around and around
