south coast plaza can still suck my dick

"the ink of a scholar is worth a thousand times more than the blood of a martyr"

-"american terrorist", lupe fiasco

told you i was crushin on this kid. i'm just sitting here waiting for wen'l to get home. we had lunch today, at our usual payday place. i hit the mall afterward and did some shopping. one of our best friends is expecting her first baby. we were all on pins and needles for a couple weeks in re this baby, and that's all i'm sayin. when we heard that all was indeed well, it was a huge relief. so i hit the baby gap and picked up the wee princess some kewl baby togs.

you all know, or should by now, that i'm not going to bear any progeny. i am a little concerned having a (sure to be) adorable little one in such close proximity is going to make me baby hungry. wen'l and i are supposed to visit this subject when i turn 40. i do know if it turns out i'm jonesing that we're going to adopt.

if a 34 yr old gets to go thru the drama this friend has been thru lately, i'm sure my 38+ yr old ova are probably far too broken to be messing with.

who knows tho... maybe being auntie joolz will be sufficient.


well, i'm learning how to have a green thumb. i've got just about everything ripped out of the flower beds in the front yard. i'm going to plant some herbs in one section. basil, thyme, oregano, some chives where there's a little shade. i'm going to incorporate rosemary plants into the rest of the landscaping. they grow great here year round, and the smell is great. they're drought-tolerant, which is a must for me. also going to plant a bunch of lavender. same reasons. and today at the behemoth megacorp home center, wen'l spotted some salvia. it's sage people. comes with all kinds of pretty colored flowers, and the leaves go in your thanksgiving stuffing.

i need to come up with something that's got white blooms on it and i'll be all set.

the dirt's in good shape. full of worms. worm poop is great fertilizer.

when the desire to have a green thumb happen? i think it's i'm trying to reconnect with my mom. i've been very angry at her, and it finally hit me that it's not getting me anywhere. she always had the nicest yard on the block, back in the day. even after she got sick the first time. i think it's what put her back together. getting all sweaty in the yard with dirt all over me, it hit me. it's very meditative. i've tried knitting, and for me, this is better.

food & liquor

see.. i got this philosophy right
i think the world, and everything in it
is made up of a mix of two things
you got your good, y'know,
and your bad
you got your food,
and your liquor

"intro", lupe fiasco

i'm crushing musically on that kid. i've long had a soft spot for intelligent rap music. click on the title of this post to visit his home on the web.
