Dusting Off My Keyboard - Finally a New Post
My absence leaves this mirrored hall empty with echoes of dust motes wafting silently, softly, their reflections multiplying in the glamor glaze of window panes and the checkered floor almost looks as if it's covered with snow. Not much has happened. Here is a good video of the Rock of Ages cast. I have weird lines on my wrist from sleeping on it the wrong way, little red creases, weaving in and out of my skin. I wonder if they resemble the age wrinkles that I will someday develop on my face, around the corners of my eyes, little tiny permanent laugh lines. In the face of fear, I'm just going to laugh. My horoscope today seemed particularly apt, as it said, "Why are you fearing emotional upheaval when all you're going to have is an awful lot of fun?" I will take your advice, staunch 'scope, and if you turn out to have misled me, you will taste my wrath. But let's hope things all go well, on this upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. With that in mind, here are 10 things I am thankful for: 1. Family/friends/my house etc. 2. Constantine's voice 3. That HAIR is going on Broadway in 2009 4. Birds chirping outside of my window in the morning 5. Old school cd players 6. That I finally have a little bit of free time (that isn't technically free, but I'm going to pretend it is) 7. My mini-heater 8. Marshmallows 9. My Hungarian cousin (Andris) who always faithfully writes me e-mails even when I take weeks to write back to him. 10. Belief & Absolute Certainty And now, I must shower, and then bake apple pie, and then head to class, and then meet with Jo, and then give her a b-day present, and then get on the M60 bus to LaGuardia Airport. And then... mystery. I'm just a dust mote floating alongside the snow.
