:: 13 going on 30

:: Friday, January 31 ::

i havent been writing anything of importance here. i mean. ive been posting quizzes and this day in history lists and quotes from idiot pop stars and crap nobody cares about. because i havent really known how to write about whats been going on. i havent even known how to speak. or how to feel really. about whats been going on.

but tonight. i gave it a try. so theres a new entry over at the journal.

and now im going downstairs. to sit on the couch and watch mister sterling. and feel sorry for myself for a bit. because yea. i think ive earned that.

on this day in history:

in 1933, adolf hitler became chancellor of germany.

in 1948, indian political and spiritual leader mahatma gandhi was murdered by a hindu extremist.

in 1972, thirteen roman catholic civil rights marchers were shot to death by british soldiers in northern ireland on what became known as 'bloody sunday.'

in 1981, an estimated two million new yorkers turned out for a ticker-tape parade honoring the freed american hostages from iran.

in 2002: defense secretary donald rumsfeld said the united states would watch closely to see what iraq, iran and north korea did next, a day after president bush singled them out as part of a dangerous 'axis of evil.' interim afghan leader hamid karzai visited the world trade center site and placed a wreath of yellow roses by a memorial wall as he surveyed the ruins of the september 11, 2001, terrorist attack.

thought it was interesting that many major things happened on this day.

(and i erased a few not-so-interesting ones)

oh no. not that kind of movie.

i have a serious love/hate relationship with the fact that i work weekends.

on the one hand, i get to cover some really cool stuff.

but on the other hand, i have to miss out on some really cool things id love to do.

i wanted to go to the DC rally last weekend. but i couldnt. i was working. and on february 15 there will be protests in new york and san francisco against the war on iraq. so.

so i thought id talk about it here. in case. you know. you dont work weekends. and you want to get out and get involved. there it is.

thought this was funny. was looking at the website for one of my very favorite bands ever. the pushstars. and while looking through the items for sale, i found this (labelled for the baby doll shirt for sale.) so its a quote for today. just because it made me laugh.

'sized for the petite lady or a large stuffed animal.'

im bringing my grandmother to the airport tomorrow. so she can fly her little self off to florida for whats left of the winter. to the family beach house in new smyrna beach. damn. i cant even tell you how badly i want to just dump my car in the parking lot and jet off with her.

to get away from this life for a while. to get away from this weather for a while.

presently: seven degrees and sinking fast. with no warmup in sight, says bob the weatherman. the five day forecast on tonights news had FRIGID written over each day in bold red letters. like having numbers like 5, 8 and 11 in the high temperatures column. and numbers that had minus marks in front of them in the low temperate column wasnt enough to tip us off. thanks.

man am i a crank today. not only has it seemed as though ive caught the cold that lasts forever. but i get a call from the other photographer at work yesterday. telling me that the camera is broken. again. first of all, our last one broke so often that nikon finally just gave up and sent us a new one over the summer. secondly, this one is brand new! we got it, yep, in the summer. and they had no loaners to send us. id really like to know what other newspapers do when one of the cameras needs to be sent in for service.

so ive been shooting events all morning with the coolpix. which. well. i might as well be trying to shoot pictures with a penguin for god sake. talk about a slow ass camera. and tonight i have to shoot two major college basketball games. with a film camera. a film camera that isnt mine and ive never used before. yea. im way excited about this. tomorrow is ice skating and feature hunting. grumble. i just want to go to bed.

crank crank.

i put a new photo up on the site tonight. its a photo i took at the last football game of the season this fall. its not exciting, but i like it. and as cute as that little dog in the santa suit was. santa is over. and i dont have many images on my computer here at home. so this will have to do for now.

i am working on the site, believe it or not. the bio is coming soon. and someday very soon. there will be more than one photograph to look at.

im sorry. but my quote of today. is just damn funny. the boy and i played trivial pursuit genus 5 last night. this was part of one of the questions. and i just had to share it.

'one false move, and she's charo' said by some l.a. producer of some kind. about jennifer lopez.

the boy brought the house down at the open mic last night. and won a prize at the end of the night. with the prize being a check for $25 that he isnt going to cash but is going to frame instead. dubbing it the first time he made money performing. for being chosen, by the judges, as one of the best three performers of the night.

go look at the pictures!!

im really quite proud.

yea boy.

tomorrow. we are off to cambridge. to land ourselves a mighty fine seat. for the joni mitchell tribute show. and cruise ourselves around harvard square for a day or two. too excited for that.

some nights. theres just nothing better.

than sitting in this second story window. watching the snow fall. the twenty inches or more thats expected. on top of the three feet we already have. from that christmas day storm.

and traffic is almost non-existant.

and john gorka plays low downstairs.

and hot chocolate. with marshmallows. swirls beside you.

and today was your moms first chemotherapy treatment. and it went really well. and you told her how much you love her. and how proud of her you are. and you couldnt believe how much she was smiling. through it all. and her nurse was so kind. so unbelievably.

and tomorrows a workday. but youre actually looking forward to it.

with possibly a little snowshoeing thrown in. and your boyfriends first show is tomorrow night. at that coffeehouse in town.

and its friday night. and. despite the chaos of the world swirling around you. or perhaps because of it. tonight. is nothing short of perfection.

1. learn french
2. get on a road to becoming a person that i like again. whatever it takes. (that involves a lot of things.)

yeah.

'sometimes i'm the only child. and yes, i have a brother.' was said by leesa. and i read it. just as i was thinking the same thing. because i just got off the phone with my mother. who was talking about my brother. like hes some kind of fucking saint because he returned her call. for the first time in weeks. so its the quote of today.

and theres a new. um. very emotion-filled, venting journal entry about it.
