easter confession

I love Jesus. I don't believe he ever existed, but I love him anyway.

uhhh, thanks?

The guy who sold me beer at Freddie's today carded me, and when he looked at my I.D.he said "good job!"

What for?

"Well," he says, "I have to check everybody who looks under 27... And I'm pretty sure that was more than 27..."

Maybe 34 is more old-seeming than I realized...?

bus stop

Remember how I used to post a thousand posts about "dragging myself to the bus everyday?" Well, now I can post all my most important thoughts and feelings from that very bus stop while I wait for the number 14 to come and get me.

Today I'm just noticing the spring air.

de ja books

Last night I dreamed I was looking at my favorite shelf of books: the unsorted fiction shelf at the Hawthorne Powell's. When people bring books in to sell to Powell's, the books get dumped temporarily on a particular shelf and that's my favorite place to browse.

So I dreamed I was looking at that shelf and came across an anthology of obscure, Eastern European authors. I hadn't actually heard of these authors, but the book looked compelling enough so I bought it.

Today, walking to Freddie's for supplies, I stopped into Powell's to test the dream out for signs of reality. I did not find an anthology of obscure authors (unless you count the collection of PG Wodehouse I picked up for Mera), but I did have a weird experience.

Nearly all the books on the shelf were books I had owned in the past, books I'd read in college or two years ago, books I'd lost or loaned and forgotten or sold to Powell's myself at some point.

It kind of made my head swim a little and I wondered if I should buy some of them back, if I was being given a weird opportunity to reclaim or relive something.

In the end I didn't. But it was something to think about.


So maybe I'll start posting lots of short but sweet little blackberry posts now that I've got the technology...

Short but sweet might be a challenge for me but I'll see what I can do. I like challenges... Most of the time...

new toy

Now that I have a blackberry I can blog while I'm walking the dog and stuff. Do you think the dog will notice?
