books: a modest bestiary

My alarms go off at 5:15a and 6:05a in the morning and I’m usually woken up by the middle of an international story on NPR or if I hit the snooze button, The Writer’s Almanac.

birthday: gauntlet? thrown!

I suppose this is a technical win, since it’s wishing me a happy birthday and not an early happy birthday, but it’s still a win. Thanks karona! Are the rest of you going to let her get away with that?...

time: like a clock of the heart

Yeah, I don’t buy that for a second. Justin sent me a message on Saturday to let me know he’d snagged me a ticket to see Sandra Bernhard. Sorta for my birthday, sorta because he knew I’d want to see...

Southern Drunkitality!

My birthday present from Serge arrived yesterday and I thought it would be rude if I didn’t open it right away! He’d shown me the product page for the Firefly flavored vodka before, but I figured I’d have to wait...
