Things have been more quiet than not lately. A little more stress-free. Kind of surprising I guess, having just started a new job at The Fire, but it’s the nicest job I could ask for right now. Feels so good to do something so hands-on. My fingers are rough & scratched from grouting mosaics and cutting glass, and I like it. I’ve been running a bit more & temps are supposed to be in the 30s & pretty sunny for the next 10 days so that means lots more running. The bills are paid, Sam’s birthday party is on Saturday, the Olympics are fun, I’ve been silencing my phone at night & sleeping a regular schedule, cooking at home a lot, you know… just all-around good and mellow. Emily & Matt close on their house tomorrow, so that’s super exciting. I wonder if I’ll ever own a house? Seems like the chores of older-home ownership can be quite daunting & that’s not too appealing to me… but at the same time, I’m a single girl in my mid-twenties. No husband or kids, I don’t have a career that’s keeping me in one place, I don’t even have a dog that needs a yard. Not to say that I don’t want those things (ok, not so much the binding career), but that’s just not me right now. I like to joke around & say, “marriage? kids? house? it would take quite the guy to change my mind…” & I’m ok with that.

Well, Blucifer & I are off to bed. Wanna catch up with some reading but… [yawn]. I’ve been reading EXPECT RESISTANCE: a field manual & THE SITUATIONIST INTERNATIONAL: a user’s guide, and I can’t imagine that the similarities are strictly coincidental… the red type, the same reference material, the similarities in titles…

Back in the day when I thought the world should be ruled by subculture (maybe I still believe that), I was really into CrimethInc (maybe I still am). I hadn’t really looked at their stuff lately but I was given a couple posters a few weeks ago that were put out by the Workers’ Collective & there they were… back on the map in my brain. They’ve got some good tools/books/magazines/posters/stickers that maybe you should check out (free pdf downloads of posters & literature).

Happy Wednesday, all… I’m exhausted!

I’ve been reading some really random, perfect things lately & thought I’d share:

“Memory is a marvel, quick as a monkey and just as silly, and it’s all we’ve got – we live by distorted memory rather than verifiable truth. Memory is feeling, not fact, ghosts and fears that haunt us, floating desires and falsifying dreams more powerful and more compelling than hard reality will ever be” [bill ayers]

“…sometimes she seemed invisible like peace.” [graham greene]

“Wouldn’t we all do better not trying to understand, accepting the fact that no human being will ever understand another, not a wife a husband, a lover a mistress, nor a parent a child? Perhaps that’s why men have invented god – a being capable of understanding….” [graham greene]

“your life is your life

be on the watch.

there are ways out.

there is light somewhere.

it may not be much light but

it beats the


be on the watch.

the gods will offer you
