what the song says

I’ve had “Edge of Desire” from JM’s new album, Battle Studies, on repeat in my car for the past week. Sometimes I get hooked on a song and won’t let it go. This one in particular makes me all melancholy and wistful weird. It’s tortured, longing, desperate. It speaks to me for various personal reasons I won’t go into. It reminds me of something from my past that I can’t forget … Continue reading what the song says

getting on with my bloggy bad self

I’m compiling a list of things that “They” don’t tell you about before you have kids of your own. The latest addition is that all members of the household will never be healthy at the same time ever again. We are constantly sick up in here. Sam is still trying to get over her latest crud and now The Accountant is really sick. In the … Continue reading getting on with my bloggy bad self

Hi blog. Missed you. Been busy. Don’t expect much from this post, I’m just here to let you know I’m still around. Took Sam to the ‘rents house for the weekend and had a great visit. She is finally starting to “get” that she has uber cool grandparents and and even cooler uncle. Who, by the way, rocked the pulpit on Sunday with his sermon. … Continue reading uhhh

it’s 7:27 pm

So early and yet, I’m already contemplating bed. Doubtful I’ll go but I am contemplating anyway. Someone is rapid firing some type of firearm somewhere in the vicinity. Nice. I don’t get it. I want to teach English in another country. Always thought that would be cool. You can blame a Lonely Planet tweet on putting that idea in my head tonight. They even tell me … Continue reading it’s 7:27 pm
