That Other Guy

Jazz Hands!

Kate and I both performed at the Salon of Shame last Tuesday. I sang a song I wrote in 11th grade for a girl I had a crush on. I did sing this song to the girl in question, and she thought it was nice, but claims she didn’t realize it was about her.

Loneliness is a state of mind
Where you can’t see nothing ‘Cause your heart is blind
And all it is that I can see
Is the way that sometimes she smiles at me

In that smile is there a longin’
Does she wish to someone else she was belongin’
Does she wish she was here with me?
Does she know that I can set her free?

Sometimes I wonder if she really knows
And I wish that there was more that I could show
But I have to keep it all inside
Cause you are with… that other guy

Salon of Shame

January 9, 2008

Last night Kate and I became the first married couple to read at the Salon of Shame, a literary event where people expunge the demons and dorkiness of their childhoods by reading from their diaries.

I read selections from 1984, 6th grade, about a doomed software development project that was supposed to be a gift for my sister’s birthday; about “Lasers & Lords”, a Dungeons & Dragons-style game I was creating; and about trying to impress the mother of my current crush to show that I’d “make good boyfriend material”.

Kate read some pieces about a crush she had in her early teenage years. Her reading was hilarious. The mind of a 15-year-old girl is a scary place to be.

Not only are the Salon of Shame events fun events to attend (and participate in), but I feel like I’m learning invaluable insights for when Ruby hits her awkward goth/swoon phase.

Some pictures from the event can be found here:

Goodbye, My Little Furry Friend

So few got to know you; even fewer understood you. And now, you are gone… forever?

Overlapping Worlds

November 20, 2007

As I was walking towards my building this morning, a woman asked me if I knew where the DSHS was (DSHS = Department of Social and Health Services).  I didn’t.

Rumor has it there are lots of social services in this area, but I don’t know where any of them are.

However, I know the locations of at least three cookware shops within a few blocks of here.

A Poem I Inadvertently Wrote Over IM

November 19, 2007

Steve says (3:23 PM):

you yelled right after my browser crashed, taking down pandora with it
there was a nice bit of silence
filled with your grief
but usually the music drowns out whatever you’re doing
