150 days. typing for the sake of typing while it is quiet.
ba-ba. nap. coffee. chat with filip. another ba-ba. cold chilin. hanging with neighbor and her greyhound. nap. transcribe. ba-ba. nap. blog.
i would like a really decadent desert biscuit right now.
then, meet with another mama in a bit. possibly a quick breverage with brandyn. delicious dinner of italian sausages and more brussel sprouts following. then, possibly more transcribing. afterwards, a movie maybe, or more reading, whatever, accompanied by a dogfish 90 minute ipa. very later, welcoming my visiting cousin josh and his friend for the weekend. in between, more ba-bas, bumbo, laughing, desmond dekker (O's favorite), a few uh-guhs and possibly more naps.
that amounts to a pretty good day, i think.
i just finished reading a couple books brandyn lent me: twilight of the superheroes, deborah eisenberg and nobody belongs here more than you, miranda july. fantastic. well, miranda july was good albiet awkward and uncomfortable. deborah eisenberg was great. so good. i love reading a book from an author i've never read and getting so pumped about it that i want to read everything that person has ever written right NOW. although, i'm not doing that. i'm moving onto tolstoy. quite the opposite. sheesh. but i need this right now. learning all this transcribing stuff and actually making words and grammar my job now, i realize, yet again, how important it is to constantly read. i like being re-excited about it. O's kind of into it, too. until he falls asleep.
what do yall do when you have a persona non grata? just curious.
yesterday ruled, so hard. milo & owen. owen's first friend of his own age. this is something special.
after hangin with laura and milo through the afternoon, i finished a small bit of work, hung out with cesar and swung by the helliges for a little bit of catching up. E is porkin out! looking good. the whole family is looking good. i'm really, so glad they are in my life. i'm really so glad all yall are in my life. this past year, all these changes have brought so many amazing people into my life whereas we might have never crossed paths otherwise. those are the things worthwhile. seriously. imma senda showt owt to my shawty brandyn, da vetranos, mah girl hiedi and tuesday - yer blessed, nikko gurl you crazy, angie- my boo, dee- where would i be wit out you?, smoot- one word: doubleheat. i don't know what that just was, but i entertained myself, at least. you know what i mean. just keepin in mind what is the most important, thats all.
so, my cousin, josh, and a friend of his are staying with us this weekend. i'm pretty pumped. i've been naggin this kid to visit chicago forever. art school is callin his name. he's a perfect fit, i'm excited to show him around. this is good.
just got a letter in the mail from my grandma gladys. made my day!
ok. i think four is probably a good time to retire my relaxin pants for the day. i don't want to. but i got too. this is gettin ridiculous.
