I was just reminded of a week, many years ago now, when the North/East was covered in snowstorms.. And what was just a few days turned into a few days more.. And I can remember and reason a lot of things about that that week, but mostly I just remember how wonderful it was.
P.S. I can’t remember the name of the darling fellow who broke the news over the phone that the flight was canceled.. but I think in that moment I loved him.
Baby, it’s cold outside.
(12°F this morning/evening in 2009)
J: You walk fast for a girl with little legs. (says the woman who’s probably six feet tall)
me: I had to learn to keep from being trampled in middle school.
me: … It wasn’t funny at the time…
About half a decade ago, I went to a Matchbox Twenty/Lifehouse/Everclear concert. Seems like another lifetime; a different stage, different actors.
When I was a kid (~elementary school..), I collected stickers, pens/pencils, notebooks, marbles, books, music (cassettes, then CDs).
I collect journals(calendar and simple ruled), domain names, post-it note tabs, books, downloadable software, AVIs of TV eps, music, mp3s.
Awesome night. really.
maybe in some ways good that I didn’t have my ID so couldn’t really enter the club to stay out much longer… also rather regretful…
but…. an awesome night really, still, really.
I asked my dad if he could name any of the songs I listen to, since it occurred to me that I could certainly name some of his artists and songs but I wasn’t so sure what he would come up with for me…
He answered, “well, you like the Kookaburra song.”
Hm. That is true. I do like the Kookaburra song.
