For numerous reasons, I am shutting this livejournal down. It has been a fun run, but it is not so close to my heart, and I am a little tired of writing about work. But you know, I can never stop writing, so if you want, read me here. It's a blog where all I talk about is reading. And writing. And mostly zines, actually. Totally boring for most of you, I imagine, but maybe some of you will find it interesting.

Anyway, one thing I won't stop is checking in on my LJ friends and using the zine_scene community. So. There's that.

Adios, amigos.

Four pieces of advice from the AAA guy who came to change my flat tire this morning after I hit a curb, which ricocheted me into another curb and the side of a building, which in turn slashed up my front tire and possibly threw off my alignment (all before my first cup of coffee!):

1. Drive slower in the morning.
2. Every time you get your oil changed, ask them to put air in your spare.
3. On a temporary tire, drive no more than 50 (mph) for 50 (miles--not feet--which is what I thought he meant originally.)
4. There's no reason to freak out. It's just a flat tire.

I am accidentally on purpose killing this blog. You will have to read me somewhere else if you want to keep reading me, and I will give you that somewhere else soon, soon.

Also, I threw my back out. It sucks a lot. Does anyone know of a good chiropractor/exercises to get my spine back into alignment? It's really freaking me out.

Today was a hard day at work. One that required some bitchy comments and slammed phones and a few apologies. Tomorrow will be better.

There are quite a few changes on the horizon here, some I can talk about others I can't. For now I will keep quiet, but you know. They're a-comin'.

Also, I am sick.

So for the past two months, it has been HELL to get anywhere on the Red Line (aka WHERE I LIVE) on the weekends. Hell as in you wait for forty minutes for a train, or you wait 15 minutes for a train, get on, go one stop, and get dumped at the next platform (which is always swarming with people) to wait for another 20 minutes for another train. Next weekend was supposed to be the last weekend that we were to brace ourselves for delays, but today, Metro announced they'll be suspending track work for the next four weekends in a row. Which is great. Except for the fact that I'm going to be OUT OF TOWN FOR THE NEXT FOUR WEEKENDS.

Bah!

I used to really hate Woody Allen movies. Like, I really hated them. I avoided them at all costs, I did not understand how anyone could find them funny or him attractive, and I thought he was overly obsessed with sex, to a very unflattering degree.

And then I saw Manhattan. And then Annie Hall. And since then I cannot. get. enough. of Woody Allen. It is nuts.

Here's a list of things I have grown to love about his films:
1. They are hilarious.
2. They are smart.
3. They tend to be short (~90 minutes).
4. They are touching.
5. They explore relationships in a very real, and not romanticized way.
6. Nothing is perfect.
7. They capture geniune insecurities, interactions, and dialogue.

Oh. Love.

These days all I can really do is ride my bike around, complain about my sore legs, and listen to Bon Iver's For Emma, Forever Ago over and over and over.

There are three things I want to say.

1. I LOVE that it is 7 and still light outside. & I am SO READY for the spring.
2. Writing stories is like birthing a child. Sometimes they come out really easily and quick, and other times it feels like you're in your 25th hour of labor, doing your best to push the damn thing out already. The story I am writing this week is one in the latter category.
3. I love my bike. I love it. I do.

I'm going to buy a bike tonight!

It is a cheap, cheap bike, but that's all I really need to get me to and from work (1 mile).

Conversation with my dad about the bike:

Me: Do you think it will fit in my car?'
Dad: No. If you had a wrench you could take off the front tire, and then it would fit.
Me: I don't have a wrench. You really don't think it will fit?
Dad: No, but if you had a wre-
Me: But I DON'T HAVE a wrench.
Dad: ... Well. Do you have a pair of pliers?
Me: I have a screwdriver and a hammer.
Dad: Well, what you really need is a wrench.

AH! OKAY! (I bought a wrench.)
