Everything is shimmering today. Some sort of self contained energy that I can't release. The physical manifestation is a tingling sensation, as if my nerve endings are being constantly stimulated. It's incredibly unsettling. If only I could harness it...

Things I know: Pt 1
-At some point karma is going to bite me in the ass for blatantly ignoring requests for change on the streets.

Note to spangers (and other offenders):
Please abstain from calling me ma'am. I'd be more apt to at least acknowledge you, if you didn't make me feel old and matronly.

-I like to peruse the Missed Connections section of Craigslist hoping that some mundane moment of my life touched someone in a meaningful way. Also, for the potential flattery of capturing someones attention to the extent that they would blindly search for me on the internet. Thus far the results are rather disheartening.

-I played tourist today. I will miss the water.

Here and Back Again
Its amazing how much ones demeanor can change after giant life decisions are made. I made one, albeit not currently the right one: move to Seattle, work in a coffee shop, get over yourself. The getting over did not happen. It was more of a go through the motions, hole up inside yourself sort of thing. After two explosions, also known as nervous breakdowns, in two weeks the game is up. July 21st 2008, I will be boarding a train, destination Denver, CO. Its time to come home.

while it is mere blocks from Colfax, the corner distinction is of little significance--
I ended up in the same location twice in the last three days. The corner of Race and 17th Avenue. It is prime imbibing territory one must simply choose a vice.

Someday I will have photographic evidence of the glory of the Thin Man aka "The Jesus Bar" TM. Until then, please go try the infused vodka for yourself and get the full 'religious' experience.

A guy drove to the coffee shop today, only to walk in, take a straw, and walk right back out.

The world seems more manageable in shades of gray. I'd like to start wearing shades 24/7...

I have this crazy idea that I will look out on my porch and you'll be standing there. Sometimes I fool myself into watching for you. I still have the text message from when that happened; almost a year ago.

Current Mood: melancholy

I think our resident rabbit may have turned into dinner.
Upon arriving home from work today I saw a pair of foxes standing in a yard a few houses down. They then crossed the street and started walking down the sidewalk together... Odd.

I just had the strangest dream.

I ended up in a gymnastics vaulting competition with a bunch of the voice majors. I kept telling my parents I wasn't going to vault but I got prepared anywhere, wearing this long sleeved white dress. I was announced as a 'no show' and was very confused. After the competition was over two girls I didn't know were called to the podium because they had been skipped completely. The judge told them and Ms. Manring, who was apparently in charge, that they could not participate because their grades weren't good enough. I had tagged along to find out why I never went on either and Ms. Manring, who had seen me upon arrival, told me she had forgotten but deemed it necessary to show me the score sheet because Kristina Topolski had won, with a 485 out of 500. I went back to tell Kelsey why I hadn't vaulted and ran into Will Ecker...

That was the end.

I am in the middle-of-nowhere Utah without cell service but with internet.

I have hiked 14 miles in the past three days (with my mother.)

I am sore.

It is time to go home.

Yestereve I encountered a ladybug with an excessive number of spots, the most I've ever seen, in fact. I tried to take photographic evidence but it just looked like a blurry red spot.

I had a hydroplaning adventure a couple days ago. I dislike spontaneous monsoons.

Addendum: On said adventure I also encountered a car twin. Unfortunately it was deformed by a very large Mary Kay sticker. I guess I do drive a Mazda...

--There may be a rather frightening and rather awful picture of me floating around on the internet. Think Sybill Trelawney + sleep deprivation.

--After surveying my 16 year old brother, to determine his condom stock, a certain roommate of mine waltzed into the bathroom, while I was showering, to present the same question to me. He would not leave until said protection was acquired...ultimately filched from an unknown person's reserves.

--Note: Stayin' Alive might be the world's best 'car grooving' tune, especially whilst trying to stay awake at 5 am driving back from the airport (after not sleeping because of Harry Potter nerdiness.)

Two things:

1. My total in cash sales today equaled exactly $42.

2. If I never have to hear the phrase "manhood plan" again I will be a happy camper. There was a knighting ceremony at the church after service today...enough said.

Current Mood: amused

I am far too tired to articulate anything further
Incurred by the brilliance of Regina Spektor:

TJ is essentially Samson...shearing his locks may be the means to an end

I am avoiding theory like the plague. So says my facebook status and myself. Counterpoint is awful.

Up next: a random assortment of points that are in no way connected

My Favorite Color:
There's something mysterious about this color purple. I'm drawn to it in the same way I am to black roses. I used to be at the other end of the spectrum with a goldenrod color. Very bright, very cheerful, very Walking on Sunshine aka me in high school. Something changed...

I went to the Wildlife Sanctuary yesterday after eating lunch at Glenmere. Walking around there was like being at home. I miss the mountains.

Being Old:
I want to be the lady I saw in the King Soopers parking lot today. She had to be 70-80 years old but she had the most fantastic hair I have ever seen. The very front, closest to her forehead, was white, the middle was dyed a burgundy color and the back, at the nape of her neck, was blond. I tried to sneak a picture but was unsuccessful.

PS-Upon spell checking the above entry I realized that I had been spelling things in British English the entire time. Odd.

Current Mood: tired

M(en) I(n) P(laid), Chair Racing and Lack of Sleep
I looked like a glam rocker. I drank Cherry Coke and sketched as everyone around me became progressively intoxicated. The party was claustrophobic but amazing: doorknobs, progressive statements, a very large eye and some hungry, hungry hippos marked walls and spaces. Our own art gallery--the only charge, a couple dollars for pitch.

Then the cops showed up...four police[persons] for a more than run of the mill college party. But really, four cops, in Greeley, breaking up a party? Don't you have anything better to do?

Thad, Kelsey and I decided a walk was an excellent course of action for the time being. A walk turned into a pow wow at the amphitheater, the obtainment of tulips and breaking into Frasier Hall.

Frasier held a wealth of diversions: we raced chairs down the ramps, chronicled our adventures, Thad climbed a tree but we mostly talked, got to know each other a little bit better and had a fantastic time of it.

4 am rolled around, finally motivating us to leave the chairs we had become permanently affixed to, and after a brief stint at 7-11, for hot chocolate and the recitation of an over-sized Mother's Day card, we reluctantly ended the night on account of need for shut eye.

An hour and a half later, I again awoke to begrudgingly make coffee drinks for church people.

Current Mood: cheerful

Just rediscovered this:

It has become my new favorite toy. Though it assumes Dvorak looks only 74% like himself... Odd.

I don't want to go home.

Or rather, I don't want to go back to my rented room in a house I share with two people I barely know. Thus here I sit.

The Music Library: place of haven for lonely souls or individuals.

I chopped off all my hair.

I am single.

I spent nearly 10 hours on my feet today.

I danced to 70's music while driving.

I'd like to go for a walk but it is dark.

Hi my name is Danielle. I am not an alcoholic but I do have a lot of problems.
