she’s going down! i heard him scream through the radio. sad, and so glad i wasn’t the one on sonar duty. how much money had been spent to rehabilitate this whale, and now it dove for the deepest trench about in […]
science class drags everyday because all we ever do is read and write. i thought that was what language arts class was for, not this. please, let me blow something up. that would be a great science class!
the complete disregard she emotes as she walks through the room sends shivers through me. how can someone be so completely absorbed with never a thought to the rest of the world? what kind of life is that?
She needs a better alibi than her brother because he sells her out every time. Just like me and Facebook.
‘What did you do today?’
‘Worked on finance.’
‘You sure were on Facebook a lot.’
Did you know that the first real exotic bird I saw in Alaska was a swan? Well, two of them anyhow. In a little pond on the way to Denali Park. That was a CRAZY 24 hours landing in Anchorage and then driving […]
another earring i find on the floor. this makes 6, i think. i put it back on my desk with the others and wonder, how do they get off the desk? do they jump? do they push each other ala king of the mountain? […]

if his feet would stick, he would climb the walls. already he has been redirected from the table, the chairs, the couch, the counter. i look outside at the snow berm by the house and know some winter i will have […]

Just in time, the chief pulled up in his squad car. “What is this I hear about police brutality?” he said and proceeded to pummel his rookie.
my epic fail of the day was writing about an epic fail because i’m sure no one else on this site wrote those words together for the minute. but what can i say? it is automatic, just like the way i said EPIC in a […]

A festival of poop! The baby loves sweet potatoes, peas, bananas, applesauce, and any other thing that mixes together into a fragrant festival in her drawers. It’s a party every time, and I wish others were invited.
the function of f over x is b squared, isn’t it? (i know. it isn’t.)
who wants to be squared? better to be spherical, well-rounded in all the right ways. then you can also roll with it, no matter which direction the push comes from.
