Is This Thing On?

Space, like time, engenders forgetfulness; but it does so by setting us bodily free from our surroundings and giving us back our primitive, unattached state.
— Thomas Mann

Well, hello there, internet.  How are you?

Yeah.  It’s been a while, I know.  But I’m not making any apologies or explanations.

Anyway, I thought you might like to see this t-shirt I recently bought for my niece (aka the Princess):


This is the only way I can get behind her whole princess obsession.  I don’t want her growing up internalizing all this Disney crap about how you’re supposed to sit around and wait for a man to come save you or make your life complete.  She loves those goddamned princesses, though.  I’m trying to do what I can.

So what else?  Oh yes.  If we’re Facebook friends, you probably know I recently went on a lovely vacation with David, since I went back on my word to have an internet-free vacation about 10 seconds after we set foot on the train in Chicago.  It was pretty awesome.  I will do some posts with pictures soon.  I think.  We did a LOT of stuff – it was the busiest vacation I’ve ever been on.  I did not, however, get engaged on that vacation.  I’m a little sad about that; I’d hoped he’d ask, but I’m trying to trust the universe on this one.  I know it’s in the cards, I just kind of want it to hurry up and happen already.

Am I the only one who thinks this year has FLOWN by?  I mean, Christ, it’s the middle of September already.  It feels like last week was Snowpocalypse 2010, and now it’s practically October.

While we were on vacation, I got a new cell phone – the Droid 2.  I love it so much.  It has changed my life.  No more dumb phones for me!

Tomorrow, we’re going to the Texans-Redskins game – a friend on FB was selling his tickets to this game, and it’s on the list, so . . . I’m excited, even though I really hate the Redskins.

Are you reading Rachel Wilkerson?  I can’t remember how I found her, but it was very recently, and I’m kind of digging her.  I’ve got at least one idea for a post inspired by something she’s written, so you’ll be hearing more about that in the weeks to come, I hope.

Anyway, as usual, even though I wasn’t writing, I was reading all of you who write, and thinking of those of you who don’t.  I hope you”re all well and happy!
