Dialect of a Skirt
by Erica Miriam Fabri The young girl wanted a new voice. After all, people got new things every day. A new hip, a new nose, a new set of suspenders. She adored the consonants that landed like wooden shoes. She loved the type of L-sounds that made a mouth drool from the back of the tongue to the front. She practiced her new voice into seashells, tin cans, caves....

RT @nicoleisbetter Map of Human Sexuality. So cool! Enlarge it. Good luck getting anything done for the next 20 min. http://bit.ly/b4Z6OF
I can already smell the theatre popcorn! RT @DanKrokos Watched the Harry Potter trailer again. HARDCORE chills followed by drooling.
This morning’s moment of zen: the hiss of the gas burner and the warm whoosh of flame that follows.

Libras - What Have you Lost Lately?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): What have you lost in recent months, Libra? This week begins a phase when you will have the potential to not exactly recover it, but rather to re-create it on a higher level. Maybe a dream that seemed to unravel was simply undergoing a reconfiguration, and now you’re primed to give it a new and better form of expression. Maybe a relationship that went astray was...
Cat puke! By the front door! That I didn’t see, stepped in, and then tracked through entire apartment! *GAG*
140 characters isn’t enough to list all the things I’d rather be doing than shopping for a bathing suit.
Found the perfect bikini at Victorias Secret. Solid black, flattering cut. Still, I’m glad I only have to do this once every year or so.
I don’t understand why everyone gets so excited about ice cream cake. It’s really not that good.
Really? Movers at 8:45 in the morning? I guess I’ll be getting up now…

Am now in love with this ‘69 convertible Beetle. Come on Universe, do me a solid. http://tweetphoto.com/29053381
It’s really nice to visit the doctor when you’re not going for a problem or a PAP smear. What, TMI?
OMFG WHO’S LEAVING A TRAIL OF BLOOD IN THE HALLWAY oh wait I cut my ankle shaving.
Awesome. RT @DanKrokos I tried Woodford Reserve bourbon last night. It was so good I’m just standing here thinking about it.

About to put a hurtin on some Ethiopian food at Queen of Sheba. But not before I put a hurtin on my wine, of course.
Vacation days? Officially approved. Now just have to figure out what I’m going to do!

Nothing classier than standing around in your underwear eating Taco Bell.

Not everyone at work wants to see your baby.
I have this nagging feeling that I dreamed about my elementary school last night, which of course is really only interesting to me, but I can’t quite pull the details into focus. This is the most frustrating - and universal - part about dreams. How they deposit just enough information to confuse you. “Did I dream it or am I having a spontaneous memory?”
Just made arrangements for myself and @nastephen for our first Bourbon Excursion on My Old Kentucky Dinner Train. http://lou.ly/bl
I’ll be honest. Having a real hard time concentrating on my writing when I know there’s a king-sized package of Reeses Cups in the fridge.
Ann Lamott - Imperfect Birds
Can you talk about the meaning of the title? What does it mean to be an “imperfect bird”? It’s from the poem by Rumi, that …each of us must enter the nest made by the other imperfect bird. If we want to have human connection, we have to enter other people’s ragtag lives — which is, of course, a nightmare, but which also makes us grow and stretch, and get...

I’m stitching up a hole in my sweater while a pot of stew simmers on the stove. Shit at least I don’t drive a minivan. #domesticbliss
Ugh, lady, holding those two buttons at the same time does not make the elevator “go express.”
Sometimes I read things I’ve written and I think “holy shit I wrote that?” and other times I’m like “holy shit I wrote that?”
Next time I take someone to Immediate Care, remind me to bring my iPod.
There really needs to be an annex for the healthy people at the immediate care center. Where’s my SARS mask?
RT @thesecretdaily: It is by giving that you make room to receive even more. @ralphmarston
Hahaha! RT @5tevenw: I think the freezer deserves a light too
*Brat alert* I’m genuinely pissed that I’m not at @Bonnaroo this year, and it’s my own stupid fault.
