Today’s totally shallow thought

April 25, 2008

Maybe it just all comes down to the shoes you’re wearing because I feel effing tremendous. And to think, all this time I thought that it was much more spiritual than this.

If you like pina coladas

April 20, 2008

So I’m screwing around on today, just checking out the possibilities and asked the computer to choose only 100% matches for me. I’m what he wants, and he’s what I want.

On page two (which was infinitely easier to find than the first time four years ago), I found:


And yes, he says he’s divorced.

So apparently, we’re divorced. I didn’t realize it, but hey, it’s just a piece of paper so there you have it.

My girlfriend said I should wink at him.

I didn’t feel like it.

Oh, I did. Four years ago. I suppose the lesson is that profiles and attraction to a photo won’t tell you how a relationship will go, how it will end. Parts of it were lovely while it lasted. For those parts I am truly, truly grateful.


Today’s random thought

April 20, 2008

I’m sitting in the coffee shop listening to a woman talk about just taking off for Jamaica — deciding that she needed to get out — didn’t tell anyone — didn’t ask a friend to go — just went.

It’s alluring.

This Stella most definitely needs to get her grove back.



My life

April 19, 2008

Picture me with a soup spoon in hand, kneeling in front of a gopher hole, scooping out enough dirt to make a path into the hole, unscrewing a bottle of Lysol (undiluted) and pouring it in said hole. Rinse. Repeat.

My life. In a nutshell.
