drunk girls

don't always have the patience of saints.
i want it nowwwwwww.

drinking on beaches, skinny dipping at 3 in the morning,
frigid canadian waters.
the way the sun sets in the summer
sun dogs, dueling rainbows.
driveway star gazing.
peach flavoured.
the hair grows like the hair grows. (faster please)
falsetto. fucking and falsetto. not again...
piles of things. why always piles?
countdown to lists and count downs.
iceland, i love you.
everything will change, oooh oooh.
la la la <3
among other things.

i don't really know what you're waiting for.

the tallest man on earth...

the cutest girl in a rain storm.

we ain't seen the sun in years, my friend.
what do you think this is? 49° 15' 0" North, 123° 8' 0" West? wrong.
wrong, wrong, wrong.

4 dollars can buy you all the memories you never made, places you've never been and people you've never known. it's the creation behind the faces of strangers, buildings and cars that counts. how many souls have you stolen? running counts mean nothing, it's final.

this out of tune piano is begging to be sung to, a warble and a whisper and clean, soft fingers. i want to play you, touch you, soft to start yet harder still. to drown out the drone of the television with a major and minor chord and damper pedal. i wish you were closer to me, you echo too much in the emptiness of the living room.

my chai tea keeps me locked to this chair, but soon i must venture out into the world and rain.
lists have been written and destiny has been handed to me.
it's grocery day.

wait up

being marginally employed has perks and downfalls.

one of the perks is an unimaginable amount of free time. one of the downfalls is an unimaginable amount of free time. another is a lack of consistent income. oddly enough, i'm having more of an issue with the free time. i spent time at work today even though i wasn't working simply because i a) and nothing better to do and b) actually really enjoy being there.

i'm learning how to sew this month. i'm also trying to get band stuff organized and trying to figure out ways to make cd sleeves. i found a few things on the internet that would be real fun to make for our EP and since i have this abundance of time, i really hope to get myself to the reuse centre and dig around for cool looking things we can craft.

i'm honestly so excited about band potential right now. i think we're at the right amount of dedication to finally get ourselves in gear. i've been thinking about this lack of work thing all wrong. i have 3 weeks to get my shit in gear. in this time before training, i hope to

1) get a trip to ikea going so i can cure my storage issues. my closet is a disaster that needs to be remedied.
2) sew myself an article of clothing. from scratch. this will be huge
3) do all my own alterations on dresses and shirts that are begging for fix me ups.
4) do another all out purge in my room, i need to get rid of some of my stuff.
5) make "proto-types" for EPs.
6) finish recopying all my lyrics/poems/song ideas that are shoved into binders from scraps of papers and notebooks so that i look like i have some sense of control over my intellectual property.

no more bored! i have tons to do and more often than not, it requires insane amounts of creativity. i'm so excited about my creative life i can barely think about sleep. again.
