It's been nearly four months since my last post, and that one was about dying. Whatta downer. Somewhat pathetically, I'm breaking my blogging abstinence with a little easy listening for your (read: Blair's) enjoyment:
Who knew Bruce Willis would have such a soft, pleasant-sounding voice? I've had a crush on the Bald One for as long as I can remember. I'm probably one of ten people alive who loved loved LOVED The Fifth Element and will watch it whenever it's on TV. Now that I've heard him sing, I find him that much more attractive.

Lately, in the past year or so with the passing of my father-in-law Daniel, I've been struck with very still moments of clarity/confusion. I'll be reading something for a class under the stairs in the library or lying in bed with Pete's arm wrapped around my body or running on a long dirt trail somewhere, and I'll have an overwhelming sense that nothing around me feels real. The library is warm, Pete's arm is heavy, the dirt is soft, but I don't know what any of that means.

"A liberated woman is one who has sex before marriage and a job after."
"It is more rewarding to watch money change the world than watch it accumulate."
"Some of us are becoming the men we wanted to marry."
"The authority of any governing institution must stop at its citizen's skin."
"The first problem for all of us, men and women, is not to learn, but to unlearn."
