Time for a new list!

So, for those of you who are keeping track, you can track previous lists in What I'm Thinking, and you'll always find the current List in the sidebar.

Most recently listed:

Naps I Love:

  • On the sofa under the afternoon light facing the window.
  • On the sofa under the afternoon light facing the back of the sofa.
  • On the grass under a tree in the warm afternoon.
  • The kind where a kitty is also napping on my shoulder or my thigh but is not digging their claws lovingly into my flesh. Because that hurts, kitty.
  • Back in bed in the morning after feeling like I’ve done enough for that morning and that a nap would be ideal.
  • On the little blue sofa in my office, door closed, blanket over my eyes.
  • On an airplane.
  • On a choo-choo train.
  • Just about anywhere in the rain.
  • In the passenger seat of a car during a cross-country road trip.
  • Stealth-like during a meeting whose subject is something in which I have absolutely no interest. Just kidding. I don’t like those kinds of naps. I usually don’t have a blanket.

A Recent List:

A few things I've recently heard that stuck:

  • “This is the story of how I began again,” Jennifer Casale
  • “Sometimes impossible situations take a little longer,” I don’t remember who said this. Do you?
  • “What we love others will love and we will show them how,” William Wordsworth
  • “The thing about the monarchy is the waste of a tightly bound narrative. It's redundant. Lack of genetic input keeps the story so so old, again: murder. Again: greed. Again: the exception to prove the rule.” –I dunno this one might have been me.
  • "Chant pray wail moan protest repeat," JP Howard
  • “The night has a thousand eyes,” Eleanor Roosevelt
  • "You had to be in the howl of it to taste it," Rickey delaurentiis
  • "But...we're NOT shocked, really. We knew what was gonna happen. [But we are considered unreliable witnesses]," Bettina Judd
  • "You might witness but you didn't tell or you were a snitch, you may have seen but you didn't see," Tai Freedom Ford
  • "I consider 'human' to be a very violent word: it never considered us. We were a surprise to the word human," Phillip Williams
  • “How Can you tell if your spirit is high or low? Do you ask somebody?” Kenan Banks
Past lists are worth keeping I figure. There is always much to which I'd like to return.

| Groceries |

It took three trips to Trader Joes to acquire the following:

  • corn
  • half & half
  • sweet potatoes
  • chicken (naturally)
  • grapes
  • grapefruit
  • lettuce (that dark shit)
  • apples
  • blueberries
  • yogurt
Note: I keep forgetting to get honey. I also forgot to get honey today. Sweetness encouraged in the future.
