news from the guacamole festival

Today I worked on a poetry thing for a while–it required that I go to the office supply store and make some copies–it’s a poetry chain, and it’s kind of complicated to explain, but the poems that are passed along are evaluated by other participants and can end up included in a zine. Yesterday I […]

plagiarism #42

When I was in high school, I plagiarized a paper for Driver’s Ed. I feel most guilty for the way it must have made my teacher feel. Now that I’ve been a teacher, I know how it hurts when your student tries to trick you. “It was a long time ago,” Erik said. “It was,” […]

Today Erik went to San Francisco to attend a protest having to do with Burma. This was his first ever solo trip to the city, and he wore red and protested with other Buddhists in front of the Chinese consulate. Now he’s shopping in Japantown and will have lunch at our favorite Indian place in […]

tomatoes

Erik rearranged the livingroom furniture while I was at my volunteer job, and it takes some getting used to, but I think I like it. I have a slightly different view out the window from my computer. He just took apart the broken boxspring and got it all into the dumpster. It’s one less thing […]

Kitty problem

Last night Kitty woke us up like usual to go out, and then I heard the neighbors having a conversation downstairs–this was 2:30 in the morning. Erik went back to sleep, but I was feeling paranoid that the neighbors’ conversation was about us and Kitty, upset about how Kitty wakes them up. I imagined them […]

malfunction

Something really weird happened with Word. I lost my right scroll bar. What should I do? Erik uses the gmail word processor. Maybe I could find a freeware word processor that meets my needs. But so many people require, for example, sending a resume as an attachment, and I would assume that Word is the […]

fetish, carrots

The best thing that happened today was seeing my friend A for tea. She gave me two presents: a book and a little fetish. She said someone gave it to her, and she’s passing it along. This is one of my favorite kinds of gifts. This evening when I made Erik’s fried rice, I put […]
