"My pockets full of dust, my mouth filled with cool stone, the pale moon opens the earth to its bones..."
Have you all heard the latest Bruce CD? It is amazing. But hopefully that goes without saying.
I am really liking having short hair. It is short-short, like above my chin short. And it is all layery and fun, and it feels SO much better and lighter. And more like me. Yay. Today I went to the candy store that is by the sock store because I needed my daily chocolate fix, and the two girls working took one look at me and exclaimed with delight, "Oh my gosh! You cut your hair!"
Nope, I don't spend too much time buying chocolate. Can you tell?
I'm slowly unpacking, but I still have a long way to go. I'd rather practice, or hang out with Amber, or do just about anything else... last night Amber and I made Tator Tot Casserole, and it was sooooo good. My sister-face sent me a beautiful text message yesterday: "There are three things in life that are certain: death, taxes, and tator-tot casserole." I couldn't have said it better myself. Although I do have to put in a complaint that Amber put ketchup on hers. Grrrrrr... us pez's have serious issues with the amount of ketchup that is used in this world. Oh well, I'll work through it, and over time, I'll probably be able to forgive Amber. Probably. Maybe.
I had a really disturbing dream last night. World War III broke out, and it was the end of the world. Really. The world was one big battlefield, and I was with mom, Katie, and Scotty and we were all trying to protect eachother, but there were shots coming from everywhere, and as far as you could see it was just one big field because all of the trees had been burned down. And it was night-time and the only light was from all of the fires that had been set. And people were getting shot and screaming and it was so realistic. It really was.
Anyways, on that happy note...
I was reading through my Blue Lake journal. Here is my entry from a year ago from today:
"9:47 PM! At this time tomorrow, I'll be getting my campers ready for lights out! Oh my gosh! Must go... so nervous!"
I can't believe that was only a year ago... Life is a funny funny thing.
