|10:40 pm - I'm sick of the web|
I'm sick of being online. I'm sick of being a web producer. I'm sick of looking at monitors. I'm sick of blogs and trying to learn WordPress. I'm sick of social networking. I'm not sick of Twitter because I never bothered sickening myself with it, although I'm sick of people talking about Twitter. I'm sick of code that I only half understand. I'm sick of this shit getting even MORE complicated as it's supposed to simplify data entry. I'm sick of having no control over content and layout. I'm totally sick of feeling old and stupid and incapable of keeping up with 'Web 3.0.' I'm sick of Content Management Systems. I'm sick of analytics. I'm sick of everyone who thinks this shit is great.
All it takes is a major power outage to bring this non-world out of existence.
Or maybe I just need an eye exam.

|03:55 pm - Hide Your Lips If You've Been Bad!!!|
Lately I have been collecting images of people in the news. Mostly men. Mostly accused of something. And they all seem to have a reflexive need to hide their lips:
and the best lip-hider of them all:
Try hiding your lips for a moment. Do you feel guilty? Do you feel caught? Do you feel exposed? You neither? What is IN THOSE LIPS????

|04:07 pm - my current anxiety attacks|
being around people at work
talking to people at work about work
being at work.
at least the anxiety attacks keep me from being depressed at work about work.

|07:11 pm - Living With Snot|
It is a disturbing fact of my life that every single pocket of every jacket I own possesses at least one crumpled and well-used tissue. They dry out and I end up re-using them. Some of them has been in underutilized clothing pockets for months. I'd say they bring back memories, but it's always the same one: endless clear liquid emanating from my nostrils. And the paranoia of NEVER having a tissue, a napkin, a paper towel handy. Early on, I learned the Grandma move of shoving a couple of tissues up my sweater sleeve in case of a pocket-free environment. It doesn't work to shove them in my purse; they get decimated in the wallet/hair brush/car key shuffle.
Noses run in my family.

One: "Well THAT was an odd moment."
Two: "That is a very strange brain."
One: "What makes her say such odd things?"
Two: "I suspect she's very bored and uses our reactions for her own entertainment."
One: "She should try to harness that energy."
Two: "I suspect she doesn't know how."

|10:00 pm - He won! And I'm so scared...|
PLEASE, CRAZY PEOPLE!!! Don't kill him! This is the closest I've been to happy in years. But don't kill him for my sake. Wouldn't it be amazing if we just let one of the so-called 'good guys' live long enough to see if maybe he can change things for the better? Ok, call ME crazy, I don't care. I haven't had much opportunity to feel like I love this country lately. But today, I did. It was some sort of weird proof that, for whatever reason, this country can only go so far in one insane direction before righting its course. Hell, we might go the OTHER insane direction too, but we REALLY fucked up for a while. I don't envy anyone who is going to try to clean up the Augean Stables that is currently the White House. Pulling all the O's off the keyboards is the last of the incoming regime's problems...

|09:48 pm - "What's the difference between a pit bull and a soccer mom? Lipstick."|
But more importantly, what are the similarities? To me, the most glaringly obvious one is that they both have big hanging titties resulting from having too many puppies...

|02:38 pm - Things that irritate me about cilantro...|
1. It's hard to wash.
2. I can never decide what to do with the stems.
3. Once you rinse it, it stays wet.
4. It sticks to everything, rather like those stupid labels on fruit
5. When I chop it, the little bits fly everywhere, and it's on the counter, on the floor, on the sides of the sink, on my hands, in my hair.
6. When I clean up after making whatever has cilantro in it, it's STILL all over the place.
7. I'm not sure I like the flavor, but I miss it if I don't have it.
8. Its seeds are called coriander, and I don't know what to do with them.
9. Using cilantro is 'cool.'
10. There's always too much left over still in the fridge when you're done.

|06:45 pm - words to be remembered by...|
Nixon is remembered for 'I am not a crook.'
Carter is remembered for 'lusting in my heart.'
Reagan is remembered for 'we begin bombing in five minutes.'
Bush is remembered for 'wouldn't be prudent.' (via Dana Carvey)
Clinton is remembered for 'I did not have sex with that woman.'
and W. Bush? I think I have it: 'Remember the rug.'
