Because actual updates are still beyond me

** **
Stop falling, you rain.
Stripey blue socks with no shoes
and you don't mix well.
Goat cheese for each meal,
with apples and stale baguette,
make a happy Meg.

This job is a game,
Pretend to be smarter, yes,
but be a monkey.
My trolley lurches,
small girl sings nonsense to me,
birthday balloon bobs.
He's a carpenter,
not a help desk guy, he says.
Don't tell his day job.
Grad school apps loom big
but there are movies to watch
and boyfriend to hug.
Not NaNoWriMo,
These words will decide my life.
No wonder they freeze.
Reading Naked Ape
Like watching football, I curse
the stupid ideas.
When brunch takes all day,
and migraine pills clench my teeth,
my Sunday is gone.
I can't remember
When last I called my parents.
No guilt, just a void.
Coworkers tease me:
Am I from New York because
I wear only black?
Left S.F. days back.
Didn't leave my heart, but I
left my best friend there.
Counting syllables
Makes me forget what I say,
I'm more free this way.
Form follows function?
Not in a haiku, my friend,
form counts out my words.
Doot doo doo de doo
Tra la la la tra la la
I've no sense of time,
I may cave and buy a watch.
I am yuppie scum.
When was the last time
I read a damned newspaper?
I almost miss news.
I'm so sorry I
haven't been in touch with you.
Which you? All of you.

*trying to interpret*
sad that I'm not doing nanowrimo? I'm not being helpful?
I'm planning on trying to write more, but big book is beyond my brain. I will be as helpful as possible with grad school stuffs. :o)

Your haiku turn the
mundane into the sublime.
Don't LJ-cut them.

I would not want them cluttering up people's pages, nor would I want to stare at them all. In case you can't tell, I am all about avoidance.

The best thing about
posting haiku is replies
can be haiku too.

The best friend gets all
sniffly, whines and paws at the
blank computer screen.

:) Your haikus are lovely. I'm especially fond of "These words will decide my life. No wonder they freeze."
As well as the yodeling, of course. :)

I don't know that they're capable of being called lovely, just a convenient way to suppress and distill all the one-third-of-an-entry things in my head. We should phoninate sometime soon. Tell Becca to update too, damnit.

[identity profile] 2003-11-11 02:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Phoninator! Indeed. Sometime this weekend?
I don't think Becca has updated her LJ in a bajillion year. I keep telling her to read things on my LJ and she's like "aah! too much work! No time for LJ!"
I'll tell her. :)

I think they're lovely. :)

[identity profile] 2003-11-12 07:29 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, this weekend sounds lovely for phonination.

Maybe I'll email her and tell her too. Got to re-meet her and remember how cool she is and then she disappeared off of LJ. Damnation!

I think you're lovely. *gigggleblushshufflerun*

i think the cliche of all new yorkers wearing only black is a little silly, but you know, nobody will ever tease you or even comment if that is all you wear here.

[identity profile] 2003-11-12 07:31 am (UTC)(link)
I sadly live up to the cliche for the most part. I don't when I'm not at work but all my shirts have always been black and I used to wear red, grey, green and blue pants (or striped) but all my work pants are black or black with pinstripes. Everyone comments on it here.
Somehow, though, I can't imagine you in all lback. patterned skirts and pale tops.

[identity profile] 2003-11-12 10:51 am (UTC)(link)
hehe! last time you were imagining me in paint-covered cords :)

today in fact i'm wearing black dressy boots, black dress pants, and a black pinstripe button-down (with fun drawstrings along the sleeves that tie in bows at the end). my work wardrobe contains a fair amount of black because it's just so easy! i also have pale tops, but no patterned skirts (that i wear to work, anyway).

i really want a good pair of red pants.

[identity profile] 2003-11-12 11:50 am (UTC)(link)
I don't think you'd wear paint-covered cords to work. I always assumed you'd be a skirts-to-work person. Then again I also wish I'd be a skirt person so it may just be habit.
Hearing what you're wearing is creepily like those Internet type-by flirtations. Only nicer. I always admire those shirts with the pulls, but I know I would tear my shirt to pieces fidgeting. I'm wearing all black again today. I went on a three day kick a few weeks ago of no black (except for shoes because all my shoes are black) - it was fun but much harder to conceptualize, I had to keep in mind that I had to wear the red shirt with the grey pants because tomorrow I'd have to wear green trousers and the red shirt wouldn't go, I had to iron a button down or two, and I caved and wore ties too. Far far too complicated for early morning dressing.

I have 3 pairs of red pants - fleece, velvet and corduroy. =)

You're making me crave
OJ something awful. I
hope you feel better.

You're making Brandeis
sound less good than it used to
Please bolster my dreams.

Take better care of
yourself, I like you and you've
sounded down lately.

Mmm, goat cheese with apple and baguette would make a happy Erin too.

[identity profile] 2003-11-12 08:02 am (UTC)(link)
I highly recommend eating such things for lunch - goat cheese and apples from farmer's market, yesterday's bread on sale from local bakery. Cheap and tasty and fresh. You have got farmer's markets in Jersey, right?? =)

[identity profile] 2003-11-12 12:43 pm (UTC)(link)
Of course we do :P Not particularly close to me, many more down by [ profile] squidia's, but we do. And i'm still working on the apples we picked, so there's no shortage in that department. Perhaps i will have to eat that for lunch tomorrow. I'm generally lazy and just bring dinner leftovers or peanut butter & jelly sandwiches with one of the many apples, but i do yearn for a change sometimes.
