When I was in high school, I used to write up a list of things that were going on in my life on my birthday, along with my favorite things at the time, friends, etc. I've decided to start doing it again, as I haven't for at least 17 years or so. I recently discovered one such list in the garage in an old shoe box that I've been keeping old notes and such in. It's a little frightening, as many of the same things I was dealing with as a 21-year old are the same things I'm dealing with now. Have I grown at all??? It's a little disheartening.

April 16, 2007, 37 years old.

Favorite Bands: The Wood Brothers, Morphine, Kasabian, Alejandro Escovedo, Malcolm Middleton, Concrete Blonde (old stuff), Mute Math.

Favorite Clothes: jeans, black short-sleeved v-neck jonny collar shirt, wicked socks, black Keens, black leather jacket.

Favorite Foods: Indian food, Thai food, marinated flank steak (I have the BEST recipe!), peanut butter cups, grapefruit.

Currently Reading: erotic horror short story compilations, e.e. cummings, other poetry.

Movie Last Seen in the Theater: Meet the Robinsons

Favorite Do-ings:

You know what? It doesn't matter. Nothing really changes. The core of who I am is no different now after 16 years--I've just learned to deal with it a little bit better.

I'm in a bit of a funk today.

I just came across this poem, and I thought I would share:

Risk
by: Anais Nin

And then the day came,
when the risk
to remain tight
in a bud
was more painful
than the risk
it took
to Blossom.

The sling, she is off for good! The shoulder, she is sore from being used again! The brain, she is rejoicing in the lack of sling!

I finally got to see Secretary a couple of nights ago, and I must say, that was REALLY good. Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader were incredible in their roles, and I really like how their relationship changes over the course of the movie. Their interpersonal dynamic was entirely credible to me. And I will never look at a red Sharpie the same way again!

I found the soundtrack to be wonderful, too. Not overwhelming--perfectly supportive.

I'm so excited! I submitted a story and a couple of poems to Literotica.com, and they were approved and posted!!! Without any requests from an editor for changes! Yippie! If you're interested, they are under the i.d. catherinewheel, and the story is called Round One. 3rr has already read the story, and it was partly his reaction that encouraged me to submit it. Yay!

So, we're on week 2 with the sling for the right arm. It is not fun. It's actually worse than the cast was, because you can still easily screw up your arm while it's in a sling. Casts are armor protection. It's also much more tempting to do things you're not supposed to when it's just a sling. Two and a half more weeks. Crikey.

was not taken! Though I slept little, my brain imagining ghost bites and crawling critters, I stayed in our bed all night and was NOT bitten! Fair readers, the battle may finally be won. Let's hope there's no resurgence. I'd forgotten how good that mattress feels...
