    im not tempted by anything 

    if theres one thing i can do its say no.

    cant say no to blogging though. love it, need it, will have it forever.

    i have some friends whose lives are exploding right now and it makes me jealous.

    not because they are doing things that i yearn to do – hell any of us can do anything. what im jealous of are the stories they could tell if they wanted to.

    for example i will never be a 25 year old young woman totally reevaluating her place.

    and by reevaluating i mean going out on a dates with two guys on the same night.


    i often ask, why dont these people write down these tales? do they think this is how theyre going to be growing their whole life?

    as idealistic as i am, i know that we go through growth spurts. we bloom, someone is attracted to that, we get captured, and we settle until the next dramatic thing happens and we bloom again.

    yes we are flowers and we should take pictures of ourselves all the time, but particularly when we are at our most glorious.

    if for no other reason, so that when we are down, which is an inevitability, we can look back and say, yes thats what im capable of, let me get up off the ground and rock again.

    nothing in heres true right? 


    dont ever go to insanely beautiful central france with your friends to see one of them get married in a gorgeous dual ceremony

    in the summer in a part of the country where the cows are white

    and all the pictures show up in black n white cuz the colors would melt ur eyes

    until they turned to yeses and exes

    im melting into this picture because its reminding me that anythings possible

    so close your eyes n floor it.

    true story told at that dinner table right before the camera flashed.

    the brides family has always lorded over the vacation town where the wedding took place

    mayors or governors or whatever they call the person who is supposed to look out for the cute little burg.

    one day the nazis marched into town. “who runs this place,” they asked a farmer and the farmer pointed to the castle whose front lawn the above photo was taken on.

    but a funny thing happened about six months before the nazis came to town. the bride’s family was voted out of office. in a fluke the people for no particular reason felt it was a time for a change and the new leaders moved into the castle.

    and the nazis took the people out of the castle and they led them to the barn and they burned down the barn.

    when france was free again there was a new vote in town and the brides family was voted back in.

    the moral of the story: pay off the farmers.

  3. im listening to deathmachine 

    and thinking about you

    the secret blog is rolling along pretty well and the super secret blog has stalled

    but the busblog is what you love and if you are here right now as jay z says i appreciate it. like woah.

    what i may do is take a little census of you who made it to the end of the busblog as we know it because im afraid things are gonna change when the beginning of the new thing comes.

    you who are here now are the real ones. the next ones will be the bandwaggoners, who are fine, but without you, what few there are now, you have helped me sputter across the finish line.

    so many dont finish. but then again, so many dont try.

    today i was at the gym, pushing myself harder than ever before.

    i am not jay cutler. i dont stop on the precipice of the super bowl.

    on the hallowed frozen effed up turf of soldier field.

    against the green bay packers.

    with children watching!

    i used to be so pro jay cutler. i may have been the last one.

    but secretly thats my problem, even with idiots and asswipes i back them all when no one else will. i squint so hard to find the good in people, but does it pay off in the end?

    only sometimes.

    now wrote a song for everyone is on. mavis staples with jeff tweedy.

    do you know what i want to be when i grow up?

    things id never expect.

  7. today is miss minnesota’s birthday 

    shes 25

    shes no longer under the thumb of the billionaire.

    but sadly shes no longer blogging regularly.

    heres the thing. theres not that many interesting people per capita.

    so when you see there someone interesting, who can actually express themselves, its nice.

    when they stop expressing themselves, its not so nice.

    either way i hope she has a happy birthday rooting for da bears.

    its also channel 2 meteorologist jackie johnsons birthday

    shes almost as interesting as lindsay

    go bears
