The One About Living With The Boy: Super Bowl Edition

February 3, 2013


It’s 4:25 p.m. the day of the Super Bowl, and we’re about to have some friends over for the game. The veggie platter is made, pizzas ordered, onion dip mixed, the frozen T.G.I. Friday snacks in the freezer just in case we run out of food or I really want a jalapeƱo popper. The apartment […]

The One About Living With The Boy.

January 15, 2013


So we decided our same-area-code-otherwise-long-distance relationship was a total drag on our gas mileage. Where I worked/lived was 45 minutes from where he lived which was 30 minutes from where he worked which was 40 minutes from where I lived (follow that triangle?). We also decided we might kinda sorta really want to be roommates. […]

When houses get robbed and then trees fall on them.

September 10, 2012


On Saturday, the girl in the apartment below me got robbed. She’d had friends over the night before and as they were loading up their cars the next day, two guys had snuck in the apartment. When the cars pulled away, we believe the two guys thought everybody had left, when really, my neighbor had […]

Sunday sharing.

“Had my dream again where I’m making love, and the Olympic judges are watching. I’d nailed the compulsories, so this is it, the finals. I got a 9.8 from the Canadians, a perfect 10 from the Americans, and my mother, disguised as an East German judge, gave me a 5.6. Must have been the dismount.” […]

Living vicariously. I heard that a lot from everyone when I was in Europe, and it made me smile. You were living vicariously as “we all” talked to strangers, didn’t fall off castles, got woken up by strange men in hostels by the rub of an arm (and we were on the top bunk), and […]

“…Love people, all over. Begin at the beginning, find the end. Remember everything, forget it. Go on, and on…“ - Robert Creeley, “Things to Do in Tokyo” Selected Poems 1945 – 2005, p. 178 I don’t know why I love that – just a small part of a 3-page poem that, if not entirely applicable, […]

Simply Having a Wonderful, (Versatile?) Christmas Time

December 21, 2011


While I was in Europe, I wrote a lot but read very little. I got behind in responding to comments and questions, and I am still catching up. I wasn’t following a single other blog – I’m working on it. That said, it’s about time I responded to one fun thing. In the past three […]

Coming Home (Part Two)

December 18, 2011


I need a bumper sticker that says “When you can’t sleep, blog.” It’s 6a.m. Sunday in California and there is no reason I should be awake. Up at 2:30, 4:30, 5:30 for good… so here we go. E-mail subscribers, I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s post where I managed to use “hear” instead of “here,” “their” […]

Halfway There… And what have we learned.

October 15, 2011


It’s 6:30p.m. in Berlin. I’m at a little pizza place looking out at a major intersection. It’s one of those intersections where underneath, just down a flight of stairs, you find an entire city, complete with a hairdresser, bar, pawn shop, McDonald’s and certified Apple reseller. I like taking the underground route across these intersections […]
