twenty-one minutes of twenty-one grams

i spent the night at wearymoon's friday night, along with another guest who cooked us up some kinda crazy but good quesadilla. oh, and her sweet but bitey basset hound puppy, gracey. we didn't get there till really late and we put in the movie 21 grams and as i suspected, we all fell asleep almost right away. i went out in the hot hot humid day to fetch us all some iced mochas from portland brew when i woke the next, um, afternoon.
i want a puppy. i want to have the time to spend with a puppy. i don't want to clean up much puppy poo though. i want a friend to take care of the puppy when i go away. i want hardwood floors in my apartment, like the ones i discovered some residents in my complex have. i want new clothes but don't want to shop. i want to lose weight but don't want to exercise. i want my teeth to stop shifting but don't want to brave an orthodontist visit. i want it not ever to be as hot outside as it was saturday yet i am talking with a friend about going to the keys. i am full of paradox.
i just went into the bathroom at the office this afternoon and there was some spilled hand lotion on the sink and for some reason it freaked me out and i had to hold like three papertowels between my hand and the lotion i was wiping up. it was just a few drips of lotion on a fairly clean bathroom sink. i hope i'm not becoming a germ-a-phobe like ashley judd. it was about more the visibly sliminess of the lotion, i think.
i was fascinated to learn about:
the black widow
i didn't know there was a big celebrity presence in women's professional pool. i am so not an expert on pool or billiards... so take this question with a grain of salt (and tequila and a slice of lime if you're so inclined), but doesn't it seem strange that the pool players are divided by gender? anyhow, i went to the association's website and found out there are lots of stars with corporate sponsors! and nicknames like:
the striking viking,
the irish invader
the texas belle
do these sound a bit like wrestling names to you?
