Summerteeth is one of my all time favorite albums and "Shot in the Arm" is probably the best song on it. It's catchy as hell, but that last line "What you once were isn't what you want to be any more" really speaks volumes. The ashtray says you were up all night When you went … Continue reading Inspiration Playlist, Volume 2, Track 9: “Shot in the Arm”
10/27/98 Inspired by my drunkenness not what I drank, more like the way you looked at me my toothy grin reflecting the beating of my heart And you: in your semi-conscious state told me I must be a movie star I just laughed and took another sip I am filled by the taste of your … Continue reading Bad Poetry Friday
In today's entries I declare my love of Carmen Sandiego, how I miss steak and beef jerky and how I can't wait to have kids. Only one of these is still true. Can you guess which one? April 14 1995
This next song on the playlist is a departure from last week's, but it's still pretty awesome. How can any mix not have Tom Waits in it? That would be a crime. Right?

In which we jump ahead six months and I tell you my whole life story in the span of three minutes. April 14 1995
If you haven't listened to Lykke Li, you're seriously missing out. This Sweedish singer-songwriter is wicked adorable and her songs are catchy. This Lykke Li classic from 2008 is actually dedicated to my writing bff who had a pretty rough week and who could probably use an extra dose of inspiration. Hell, I think after … Continue reading Inspiration Playlist Volume 2, Track 7 “I’m Good, I’m Gone”
I Didn't Think So c1993 Would you still hold me if I was thin? Would you still love me if I died my hair? Would you still call if I changed my voice? Would you still look at me if my eyes were blue? Would you still want me if I was popular? Would you … Continue reading Bad Poetry Friday
Confession: Up until last week, I'd never read S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders. I know that it's on practically every other high school summer reading list, but it never was on mine. I was too busy not reading Lord of the Flies and Sir Garwin and Jane Austen. But awhile back on a road trip with Husband and Waffle, we listened … Continue reading “Stay Gold, Ponyboy”
Better late than never! As always the boy drama is high and one of today's entries involves a boy "skeeting" on me. So gross.
