Aw, hell, Horoscope Wednesday
TAURUS April 20-May 20 Protecting the things you love most is busy work because it tends to have a constantly changing agenda. You have to open your mouth and sing, sweet Taurus. This week it’s important to communicate your little heart out, even if the fool you’re supposed to be chatting with is you. (SFBG) You are the lord of all you survey! I swear to God! I’m almost...

Sorry, kids. Distracted much? Yes, yes I am. In other news, it was National Pie Day on Saturday and I MISSED OUT. If you know me, you know this brings me sorrow. Deep, deep sorrow. There will be rolling and pinching to make up for it.
Is it possible to feel sexual/sexy without feeling riled up? I am experiencing this right now. Listening to Mars Volta, but also lots of Fiona Apple, Metric, and Biggie. Oh, and I’m at work. Hell yes, all alone in the office. “Fast as You Can” is a super sexy song, though. Let the beast in? (…please?)
There’s a girl lost in me who wants to say I’m sorry. It...– “Ghosts”, Ladytron

“He began to be comforted by three things. One was a set of drawings of the 88 Buddhas of the Shikoku pilgrimage, whose outlines—robes, haloes, calm hands—he devoutly painted in. The carbonised, face-down Buddhas of his tanka found peace again. The second comfort was in “simple acts of kindness”. And the third was an image of his life as a baton, passed on every time anyone heard or read his...
Advice from the roomies: round one
Me: Look, man, I just feel really goddamn agitated. Augh.
Carlos: Don't you have a vibrator?
Me: What the hell, man? What does that mean?
Carlos: I dunno, won't that make you feel better? Help you sleep?
Me [advancing and roaring]: DOES IT ALWAYS MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER?
Carlos [dejected, pathetic voice]: ....not really.

Horoscope Wednesday walks on thin ice, yo
TAURUS April 20-May 20 When someone says, “Oh Taurus, that’s so you,” you want it to be for something awesome — not for being a stick-in-the-mud who gets so totally overwhelmed they act out. Cope better with your worrying ways so you don’t sabotage the support offered you. (SFBG) I don’t mean to sound melodramatic, and I certainly don’t want to encourage you...

Bernard Clayton? Your Cuban bread is GOING DOWN. 5-6 cups bread or all-purpose flour (I prefer Gold Medal Better for Bread) 2 packages dry yeast 1 tablespoon salt 2 tablespoons sugar 2 cups hot water (125F) Sesame or poppy seeds (optional, and I’ve never used them)
My brownies bring all the boys to the yard.
To be fair, I live with three. Cup chocolate, cup butter, sea salt. What could possibly be better? (Someone to help lick the batter?)

Daniella: By the way, the last time I did it, I told the guy no but he wanted to anyways. It was a homicide scene, we had to stop.
Me: Some fucking SVU shit, huh?
I feel nervous and jittery for no apparent reason...
Hopefully dancing will solve this. Except if I bail because I feel tired and lazy. Damn.

TAURUS April 20-May 20 Now is the time for you to boldly go where you have been meaning to go for some time but have been too scared to act. Focus on the corner of the puzzle you are working on and try not to get too distracted by the picture on the box. To do things right, you can only do one step at a time — so clarify the steps and get to it! (SFBG) “The common idea that success spoils...

Left my window open a crack last night and woke up a bit chilly and buried beneath black blankets. Rolled over and sang along to Neko Case on NPR’s archives and felt warm and rascally. She’ll make you wanna two-step, I tell you what.

The reason you stop stalking people on the internet is because you happen upon a pretty ugly picture over social networking sites of that one. That ex. And then you happen upon the picture that I’ll try and be better about? and not link to? because THAT makes me a good person? that is of a fucking teardrop tattoo held up to that face.

OH NO THEY DIDN'T! - This makes me nauseous →
In the bitter cold on Monday night, a man and woman picked apart a pyramid of clear trash bags, the discards of the HM clothing store that reigns in blazing plate-glass glory on 34th Street, just east of Sixth Avenue in Manhattan. At the back entrance on 35th Street, awaiting trash haulers, were bags of garments that appear to have never been worn. And to make sure that they never would be worn or...

TAURUS April 20-May 20 This is not the time to pick at scabs or rock any smoothly sailing boats. You may be in a warring mood, but pick your battles wisely this week. You just need to deal with your own moodiness a bit better. Cultivate a sense of humor, carve out some down time for yourself, or take it out on the dance floor — don’t stir shit up. (SFBG) Can you pull off a mid-course...

I wrote this in an ancient journal to approach 2009. Really good idea looking back and evaluating? Sure, if you’re a total masochist, like I am! Let’s see, let’s see.
