What a busy month! I like that.
Spent about 5 days in Atlanta, went to Indy for some wedding stuff, and some friends from NYC are coming into town today :) I want to take them to Piece Pizza, obviously. Haven't been there since Erica was in town, so I think it's time to go back.

I need to be better at updating, I've been slacking!
But I am off to get my oil changed...sexually. No, just kidding. Regular oil change.

Oh hey again!
Nashville is a no-go this weekend :( sad. But I'm only medium upset because the reason we're not going is that Amanda got a job - which is good news! It is the perfect job for her, and I know how badly she wanted it so I'm pretty happy ;) Now I can be a kept woman. Hahahahaha...right.

I AM going to Atlanta next weekend, though! This one is official because the plane ticket is bought. I'm going to help out my cousins at a trade show for their company. I will mostly just be wearing pajamas all weekend to promote, and setting up booths. And hanging out with my Cincinnati and Atlanta cousins :) Sounds like fun to me.

Today I saw a tiny desk on the sidewalk that someone was getting rid of, and I wanted it. It was in good condition and I thought it would fit in my car. Wrong. A guy saw me struggling, and he came over to help. He ended up getting a wrench from his apartment and taking it apart so it would fit in my car, how nice! While this was happening I saw someone I knew and she found the situation to be pretty funny. Then she told me that a week or so ago there were some awesome chairs that someone had put out down there and she snatched em up. Exquisite.

I'm eating a tasty bag of Gardetto's right now. Thinking of a poem that Lisa wrote, I'd like to share:

Oh, Gardetto's
I want you in my mouth
you have no idea
how bad I want to go down south
stop at every store on the way
I wish you knew
how much I love your shapes
brown ones, round ones
salty but so sweet
Oh, Gardetto's
if I could I would eat
every bag so tenderly
lick you, savor you
I want your flavors all over me
there’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
I see you with someone else
in their hands, touching their lips
I wouldn’t hesitate to give
even a small child a swift kick
because you belong to me
I want you all to myself
I’d smuggle every one of you off the shelf
smile as I run away
if I had you all for just one day
I’d take you to Gardetto Island
just being together, munching in silence
Oh, Gardetto's
you are perfect to me
I want to open you up, whisper softly
--that you are the only snack I’ll ever need

Gotta go

My dad's leaving for Singapore tomorrow - well technically today I suppose. In 12 hours. I've known about this for several months, but for some reason it didn't really register with me until today. Not sure how I feel about it yet. I'm surprised to find that a part of me is sad. I feel bad saying it like that, but it's just...weird. We have a weird relationship and he's not usually my favorite person to be around, but looking at this objectively I think it's a bit sad. I don't know.

I was thinking about going to Indianapolis and Nashville this week, but some things have changed and that might not end up happening. I'll find out tomorrow.

a time

Sometimes it is 1:00 a.m. and I am watching Moulin Rouge while cleaning my room. And also eating some greek pasta salad. and a bowl of chips. and maybe having a tootsie roll pop after those other things are gone. and then just maybe when all of those things are done i will go out into the street on this warm night to smoke a little cigarette.
