05.30.09 Carter-Gaul Wedding

So I couldn't figure out why all night I've been trying to decide to post this. If anyone else would like my burry pictures, because I really do. And then I realized I just like it because it reminds me of a scene from A Softer World. I think I'm just tryin to get Joey Comeau to marry me again.

Take one:
Take two:
My camera takes much better black and white pictures. Or perhaps I just don't have an eye for color.

New Socks

New Socks
by Bob Shea
Dear Bob Shea,
Please marry me.
I'm at a loss for words to describe New Socks. It is the best book I've read in years? It's written in a way that makes me think it might be about myself? Here, I'll give you some text...
OH NO! Someone stole our copy of New Socks! I'l have to get back to you on that!

Even though it looks like a delicious chocolate river, it does not taste like one.
Don't worry, I checked.

So, I was walking through the grocery the other night, late late at night. I love to grocery shop after 11 when no one is around. I can wander my way around slowly, sing along with Michael Buble, and eyeball the Keebler display of Spock and Kirk.

So as I wander along I realize that I have become that crazy lady shopping in her pajamas in the middle of the night, singing with the soft rock and getting all worked up trying to decide if she would rather marry Kirk or Spock (Spock!), while squeezing the tube of sausage just because it's fun. I am the crazy lady that scared me in college.

But then, while I'm standing at dead stop pondering this in the middle of the dairy section, a lady walked by tap dancing with only her right foot. Left step, Right ba-dum-shuffle-click, left step, right ba-dum-shuffle-click. This was in flip-flops, mind you. And only the right foot.

So I feel somewhat better knowing I am not in fact the craziest lady

in Kroger.

So I lack the ability to read in depth the way everyone else seems too, and I'm pretty sure I just get the meaning I want out of things, not their intended... whatever.

But I read this the other day, and while it's very interesting in and of itself, one part in particular struck me as being very in tune with my way of thinking.

"For 30 years, Denmark has topped international happiness surveys. But Danes are hardly a sanguine bunch. Ask an American how it’s going, and you will usually hear “Really good.” Ask a Dane, and you will hear “Det kunne være værre (It could be worse).” “Danes have consistently low (and indubitably realistic) expectations for the year to come,” a team of Danish scholars concluded. “Year after year they are pleasantly surprised to find that not everything is getting more rotten in the state of Denmark.”"

If you expect only the worst, its only going to get better.

Plus, it mentions my grandma.
(ok well not really her, but still..)
