there is no line

o.k, i'm going to share something with you to show you how shameless i really am.

i'm sitting at alexander's (local watering hole favoured by the archaeologists) last night, with d. and c.p., discussing the finer points of world issues and sipping on my baileys when a sudden craving grips me. being the obnoxious person that i am, i voice it.
i vant pickles, i vant them bad."
our server overhears. "would you like me to bring you some?"
me: "what?! no, no, it's o.k., i was just joking"
o.s.: "it's no problem at all. i'll bring you a little side plate"
me: "no, really, don't trouble yourself!"
o.s.: "i'll be right back with them"
me: cover my face with my hands and whimper softly, reflecting on my status as the resident weirdo.

of course, she brought them and they were yummy and i forgot all about my shame.
but seriously.

i wonder though...what if i asked for vegetarian spicy italian sausages next time? and some dijon mustard?

begin the countdown

it's not that i'm actually excited about the holiday itself, but the family have already started theirs. so, me too:-D
my mother told me she's already bought me a gift but after careful consideration returned it because it wasn't "quite perfect". so now i'm not getting anything;-D
ah, mothers.
sometimes i wonder how much like her i'll end up being.

"Od nowa deszcz, panowie, migocace luski
na grzbiet katedry, oblaza ulice i ruch uliczny
przechodzi do krwi. A mury, mury wlasnie
odslaniaja dziasla i zrzuca siodma skore

miasto czterdziestu bankow, widac doskonale
z poprzednich sezonow niearyjskie sklepy,
jeszcze burmistrzowa przeglada sie w witrynie.
I niearyjskie bezwstydne sklepowe wydaja drobne,

prawie niewidoczne, i dworzec wciaz wlada
jezykami siedmiu demonow, ogniem, para, sadza,
a corka maszynisty puszcza do mnie oko,
az marszczy sie skora w niepublicznych miejscach.

I chociaz znowu deszcz, panowie, jest
przeciez szansa na cieple mieszkanko."

Tomasz Rozycki, 2000.

dzisiaj pakowalam ksiazki zeby zabrac z powrotem do rodzicow. wpadl mi w oko tom od ojca. nie wiadomo dlaczego skojarzyl mi sie z toba, f.;-)

from the diary of an old woman 2

weather cooperation: -18, so nil.
still sore from sweet boy, the therapist. i mean, the massage. whole self cracking loudly but in better spirits.
the historical archy contingent (plus extras) leaving for chacmool conference in calgary tomorrow. they are driving en masse so they can better group hyperventilate on the way there.

i can still see the democrats' gleeful little faces from tuesday. what's it gonna be called when they'll have a demo government and we -- con?

how i suprise myself sometimes

my last night's dream was about how apples came to be fruits of sin.
someone's been reading too much weird crap before bed...
