Realizations of the Day
After a long day that started with my 8am class, proceeded up I-10 and back, and ended at Safeway, I reached the following conclusions:
• I don't mind passenging
• Realism can represent the apex of abstraction
• IKEA is almost more fun when you aren't there to spend money
• Oriental rugs really are one of a kind
• It makes more sense to park off Mill Avenue
• We aren't the only people who have trouble getting people to turn out for talks
• An appreciative small audience surpasses a disengaged large audience
• ASU is both less blonde and more diverse than U of A
• A house is still a house, no matter how tastefully appointed
• Finding Derek Jarman's Jubilee can be a challenge
• The whipped cream on a mocha is the best part
• I do make better time when I'm at the wheel
• My former office mate is a superb conversation partner
• Promiscuous documenting of one's sexploits is not the same thing as promiscuity
• Second nature is harder to describe than first nature
• I could watch citizens of the Weimar Republic board trains for hours
• Hot wings and hip hop are a perfect match for ESPN News with the sound turned off
• Melodrama is in the eye of the beholder
• The season of Cadbury creme eggs and Thin Mints is finally upon us
It was a good day, all in all, even though I missed my family, not least its ever-so-cute feline newcomer.

oooooooooooooooooooh Cadbury eggs. They are so easily forgotten after Easter, but so welcome when they reappear!

I had two last night. Decadent. And a Thin Mint earlier.

I wonder what they'd be like if you ate them like hardboiled eggs. You know, on those egg platforms and with a spoon...

Once I had all three kinds (chocolate, caramel, and cream) in one sitting. Then I realized it was time to actually do something.

on the abstracted real

This post made me very happy in this visceral stylistic sort of way. Even if I did want to make faces and flash eyes and say You be nice to blondes now, you hear! :)

But I know you know it's just because of all those SoCal-Tucson transplants, lugging peroxide in matched luggage. But explaining that would have screwed up your lovely sense of rhythm.

Promiscuous recounting made me shout (inside my head) grad school! grad school! To a great many others above, all I offered was a simple, satisfied assent.

Re: on the abstracted real

No, you're not that kind of blonde, for better not worse.

Grad school indeed. My companion and I were thinking of home movies and photos, along with creative writing assignments, but hey. . . :-)

Re: on the abstracted real

I'm afraid I'm a promiscuous recounter. But then I'm also a blonde. Hmm!

Re: on the abstracted real

You say promiscuous like it's a bad thing... :)

Well...

But a little recounting keeps me in the blonde-zone I never do inhabit, intrigues me in the right dose, you know.

Re: on the abstracted real

UC grads can never be too blonde or too promiscuous in their documenting!

WWJE: what would Jesus eat

I think what you meant to say with your "the season of Cadbury creme eggs..is upon us" is that it is almost the end of Lent...and, hence, almost the time to celebrate our savior's glorious sacrifice. (though, I doubt Jesus was chompin' down on any candy when he was in the Garden of Gethsemane.)

I am going to recommend some Lent police look into your Cadbury Creme Egg behavior...these candies, by the way, are revolting.

I look forward not to the CREME egg, but those Cadbury chocolate eggs with a thin candy shell. Perhaps if you had mentioned these candies...or even those special Easter Whoppers...but the Creme Egg. That's blasphemy.

Re: WWJE: what would Jesus eat

Creme eggs blasphemy???? You must be a believer in the anti-creme-egg heresy!

Re: WWJE: what would Jesus eat

Indeed. I have seen many a Creme Egg burned at the stake...with a smile on my face!

Re: WWJE: what would Jesus eat

But I remember those 70s commercials for the creme eggs with the clucking rabbits!

(I like the other kind too, though. They smell sublime.)

Re: WWJE: what would Jesus eat

you know, those clucking rabbits freaked me out. I was really into bunnies when I was a kid...I didn't so much like chickens. So the combo didn't work for me...

BUT, fine, I'll tolerate these Creme Eggs...I'm glad they exist to make Other People happy.
