(no subject)

i went to my first passover seder last night at aviva's parents house. & did jenny look like she could eat the izod alligator in one bite with her sexy librarian uniform? did i look as sharp as the prick of sleeping beauty's spindle? oh yes, oh yes. so it was nice seeing rifka & benji- benji was mostly my dogg all night, coatching me what to eat & when to drink & cueing me on when to fake being able to sing hebrew. kira was there as well, though she was unnaturally cold, considering that everyone else was so hot. the two irritants on the evening were aviva's friend bree (first thing she said to jenny was "oh, you look older!" but since i was told to be polite company, i couldn't bite back) & also leigh, who showed up as a surprise (& did leigh accomplish being more annoying? i'm not sure. she did mention jenny's ex-boyfriend, but maybe it actually was conversational? i don't know, maybe some people have better taste than to ask about him in front of me, you know? jenny aquitted herself so gracefully.) anyhow, it was alot of fun, but i am sure looking forward to less busy days.

mad props to illscientist for this link about homeless children who know the truth of what is up in heaven. a solid five (5) star reccomendation.

the bad that won't come out.

this place makes me feel so neighborhood. coming out of the laundry room to go outside, someone tells me "its cold out there, better take a jacket!" walking home from the pizza place, a lady asks me "is the pizza there any good?" switching the laundry from the washer to the drier the boy in the elevator holds it for me, even though he has to go all the way up to the top floor. its all really comforting & affirming. which makes the butterfly knife in my pocket feel happy. i mean, i've been all secret-apocolypse today. it is the little things that bring the stunning conclusion ever closer. every minute we are sixty (60) seconds closer to the end of the world. & jenny talks about getting me a marionette from europe. the men with m-16s guarding the tunnels all look at me with green computer text roiling acrosss their irises. the government is brain washing its soldiers with st. john of patmos' book of revelations.
