Why, Neil? - thursday, october 23, 2014 - 10:14
I would like to know why the song "Love on the Rocks" by Neil Diamond is stuck in my head. I have not heard it anywhere, to my knowledge. It just hatched, earwig-like, in my brain.
"Waaaaalgreeeeeeens! - monday, march 17, 2014 - 11:49
A trip into Walgreens is a trip into horrible music and stellar savings. Two for one dental floss and a Debbie Gibson song stuck in my head were today's bargains.

I can't believe you're gone. Rest in Peace, sweet kitty.
Molly - wednesday, june 12, 2013 - 15:42
New kitty in the household. This one is my husband's fault. He convinced me to keep her after I rescued her from the park. She had an abscessed jaw from a fight. She was a kitty I fed once a week since December. Nice kitty. We had a cordial relationship. Now, she's livin' in my house, meowing at me for food. Obviously, I'm in lurve.
let's talk about it - monday, august 13, 2012 - 10:57
Ennui. I used to really dig that word. Used it all the time. I even had Webster's definition nerdily memorized: a feeling of weariness and dissatisfaction: boredom
Some things never change. Could be the ennui tide rolls in and out in the chemical tide of my brain. Hold on. Bad metaphor. High tide is supposed to be good, right? But then that would give me higher levels of ennui, which is bad. Isn't it? Oh shit. Back to the drawing board.
hit - wednesday, november 30, 2011 - 11:47
Anyone want to go in on a hit on Maroon 5 for writing the song "Move Like Jaggar"? I forgot my iPod at the gym Monday night, and that piece of excrement has been lodged in my skull ever since. I figure $5000 should do it.
Thanks for your attention.
These lyrics, stuck in my head for no good reason - friday, april 15, 2011 - 09:01
That's life, that's what all the people say.
You're riding high in April,
Shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune,
When I'm back on top, back on top in June.
i've been skimmed - monday, february 28, 2011 - 15:39
Dear Scuz-Buckets of Vallejo,
Not that you care, but you ripped me off on my goddamn birthday. I don't know how you got my account number, probably from the Union 76 where I bought gas last week. I hate you and I have cursed you with a gypsy curse a la the novel "Thinner" by Stephen King. Enjoy, fuckers!
Yours in vengeance,
Hey Ted - monday, november 08, 2010 - 11:16
After "fixing" my boyfriend's hair by brushing it across his forehead:
Me: Your hair looks like Ted Koppel.
Him: ... (commences tickle torture)
Me: Do you know who Ted Koppel is?
Me: ... (commences hysterical laughter)
shhhh - wednesday, november 03, 2010 - 13:55
It's hard to tell the person you work with who's watching the Giants festivities to please turn down her computer, when that person is your boss.
pre-op fasting - tuesday, september 07, 2010 - 08:55
...is hard to explain to a cat. Every time I get up from the computer, there she is with her tiny, bird-like mew looking at me with a combination of worry and disgust: "Did you just f*()%# forget my breakfast or are we out of food?"
Note to Cleo: you were a worthy adversary in the battle of "get into your carrier, dammit."
new roommates - thursday, august 05, 2010 - 08:49
Two new kitties! No names yet. Boy (black) is 6 and the girl is 8. They were a bonded pair I got from the SPCA in Oakland. They're both mellow and friendly.
Still miss Flannery but this helps.
ETA: Named 'em -- Murphy and Cleo (as in Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile).
dumb and weird - wednesday, may 26, 2010 - 15:45
Dreamed I was getting a makeover and photo shoot, courtesy of the people at America's Next Top Model. It wasn't for the show, just a free makeover. As one might expect, girls who wanted to apply for ANTM were there, but so were..."older" women who just wanted a free makeover. I never got called in. An old lady with GRAY hair went in for her turn, but they just kept telling me they'd be right with me.
Notes to self:
1. Get over your fear of rejection
2. Stop watching ANTM.

Life, recycled - monday, december 14, 2009 - 16:20
My love life and the movie "Groundhog Day" have frightening similarities.
strange observations - wednesday, october 28, 2009 - 11:53
-- my cat's canned food was reformulated. now it contains rice. wtf? since when do cats like rice?
-- people i love sure have a funny way of showing they love me: changing the plans from one day to the next. more "tilt-a-whirl" than relationship.
-- working from home has its good points: you don't have to comb your hair. its bad points: there's no pleasure in fooling around on the internet.
autumnal beverages - tuesday, october 13, 2009 - 13:09
having a Pumpkin Spice latte from Peet's. Much more spicey than pumpkin but OK. Also, they have a tea there called Russian Caravan! Too bad it smells like petting zoo.
all 9s - thursday, september 10, 2009 - 09:12
Nothing unusual happened to me yesterday, except seeing two parrots fly over Embarcadero Center: squawking loudly, bein' all green and free. They must have been doing some shopping before heading back to Telegraph Hill.
that's not to say - sunday, august 23, 2009 - 11:20
Staring at iTunes' visualizer, three songs and counting
tiny glowing beings swimming in and out, morphing colors, kaleidoscope-like, leaving the imprint on my retinas when I look away
this would be a good thing to do stoned, though I see, it's not necessary; that's not to say I'd turn down a toke, if a friend offered me one.
