my thoughts on baby
written by: dreadrockstar
its been a long year.
i have a hard time believing its august already
meaning my birthday is in another month.
i remember telling people how i was sure to be back on the island by my next bday. mission accomplished. maybe the only thing i said i was gonna do and actually did.
if all else fails, at least i accomplished one thing in my life.
not quite what i had imagined...
dreams of halloween are railings,
feet sticking through, a special sliding-down-to-the-ground
drunk, but with it. a chair, leaning over toward me,
pivoting so your rough elbows are overextended,
which in my sleep has no texture,
only the transmission of you
after the suspense, my leaning too, you said
what i had been worrying - what now?
that was last...

Recently, I asked my friends little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day. Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, “If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?” She replied… “I’d give food and houses to all the homeless people.” Her...

Hello readers :-)!
I have an unusual request for you. Unusual because well....most of you aren't in my local area.
As you know, I'm an intern at a local domestic violence shelter. We're in need of some donations.
With the holidays coming up, they're needing donations of new and unwrapped toys, among other things. We also need normal every day things/household items/cleaning...

Things I wish people told me...
I have had quite a few friends lately ask me what it was like to be pregnant, what actual childbirth was like and what it's like taking care of a newborn. It takes me a little while to answer because I want to give them the most honest answer I can. I read all the books, watched all the videos and creeped the internet for hours, but when it comes down to it, it's nothing like I ever...
Carl--the Lap Junkie
written by: Tehachap
When the next door neighbor moved in just a year ago, they had four cats. Each of the cats had a special name, but I only got to know Carl and Bob. Half of the cats were indoor cats and you never saw them. The other half were a mixture of indoor and outdoor and one in particular, Carl, was one of the "ins and outs" and was hunter extraordinaire. Several months ago, Carl...

I didn't dream about you last night. After all of the dreams about our conversations, about you, the weird metaphorical dreams about your death, this one was about the rest of us- your friends, your grandparents, your sister, trying to sort out your death. Stringing together our memories of you, keeping odd tokens to honor you in our lives, trying to figure out what went wrong...
