say it

the long and short of it is that i have been seeing a lot of movies, am generally very boring, and have been inspired to go raw by the unlikeliest of sources: my father.
well, not totally. but the literature has been ordered and i am suddenly inspired to trek to stone barns. nevermind the vitamix.

work has been generally difficult. my attitude might be to blame but attitude is everything.

ho hum.

what a shit week.

simultaneous boredom mixing with a feeling of being totally overwhelmed.

must remember to thank lucky stars once in awhile but.... regardless. everything feels really ugly, sweaty, on sale, and stinky. and i have unresolved anger towards too many things. for example: our icelandic hosts. reason: $300, endless emails.

never got around to painting the radiator covers or repositioning the curtains. typical.

saw wall-e.

trying hard to rid myself of all my foolish catch phrases and also to treat my left knee and right hip with more respect. dear future self, you will be with both wheelchair and walker sooner than you think.

this is a stupid entry.

a black bike

Every once in awhile I geek out.

Today I declare that my life greatly improved all thanks to newly acquired material possessions. I SAID IT.

I'll also take this moment to bask in the glory of the possessions I already own. And I mostly mean my clothes. Because I am entirely shallow. And other things like air conditioning.

Work is done for the week and that is also a very good thing. We just came from watching our dog walker (et al) perform improv. Some of it definitely "blew my mind". And that, by the way, is supposedly a very Nadia phrase. Which I am not entirely proud of.

Other than that, Gordy and I have many terrific plans in store for I-D 08 but it's likely going to rain all weekend as it's been known to do THIS ENTIRE SUMMER. We will all grow amphibious in the wake of global warming.

< 3 'traz.

I have been feeling a little bit sad that I have been so quiet on here. The realities of my situation are that I was all these things: busy, uninspired, without photos, too much to say, too little to say, and a broken Safari. And Safari is the only thing that will do!

Since my last communications, the huz has returned. He is now very professional. But last week we unexpectedly flew to Michigan to attend funeral services of what is now my grandfather in law. If nothing else, I think my fear of death related gatherings has subsided a little bit. Mainly because 8 hours of solid chit chat around a dead body (god rest his soul!) will do that to a person. It was a romantic funeral, as strange as it sounds because he was 90something years old with a wife who still loved him and cried that he was gone. After 70 years of marriage. Beautiful!

Additionally, there have been many more hot days, the renegade craft fair, the rain, the dog bowl, the anniversaries (seven years together and one year legal marriage), a birthday for my beloved, many blockbuster films, newly purchased air conditioning and... so on.

This weekend: the Fourth of July and all the compromises that always come with that.

Creativity at an absolute standstill. I blame the heat. And the fact I am still without fabric. A wife who weeps.
