but I did come up with some good stuff. Like this:

“You didn’t have to be so ruthless.” I glared at her and she reveled in her incredulity.

That’s kind of how we worked, hot and cold, vapor and ice; I could never match her heat and she couldn’t melt me down so we could coalesce as pure water. She was the...

This is April. National Poetry Month. I'm horrendously behind on my 30 in 30 challenge - that would be 30 poems, and kind, any length, in 30 days. I've got five or so so far. I'll try my best to make up the difference by the 30th, and post it here and on the poetry group boards.

Has anyone seen the new Ford "The Switch" ad campaign? I use Hulu and they run these two Ford ads all the time: this one white woman is a former BMW owner who switched the some big minivan thing, she has a young child, a husband, her FATHER in the ad traded in his Lexus for the same car, and she's fucking PREGNANT.

I need to get a new browser. I'll probably use Chrome. Something seems to have infested my Firefox, but it isn't causing any problems for Safari, and I hear Chrome is really fast. Also, I have an interesting personal problem: Passover starts Monday night, but I work at a Catholic school, and their vacation starts on Holy Thursday, which is April 17 for...

So, a few things happened:

1 - My ping-pong employment seems to have ended; I'm working in a Catholic school charming little nine-tear-old brat who has (MAJOR) focusing issues. I'm doing my job and, as usual, killing it!

2 - My money situation is STARTING to even out; I still have rent issues right now, but I'm fixing things up.

3 - Getting the ball...
