"The notion that such persons are gay of heart and carefree is curiously untrue. They lead, as a matter of fact, an existence of jumpiness and apprehension. They sit on the edge of the chair of Literature. In the house of Life they have the feeling that they have never taken off their overcoats."
- James Thurber, My Life and Hard Times

True confessions

I think maybe I'll do a true confession post once a week.

One of mine is to be like this chick, down to the melodrama.

I want to walk like her and talk like her and do my makeup and hair and clothes like her. Problem is, if I did, I wouldn't look like her at all.

I'd look like the whore of Babylon.

Come and whisper in my ear, what's your deepest desire?

Dang, if I'd know you liked the Motels, I could've hooked you up with tickets to their last show.

The whore of Babylon. You slay me. If I could look, talk, and walk like anyone, I think it would have to be, um, well, me. I kind of like being me and everyone else is taken.
