Fully Baked

Sunday, 3 minutes to 9pm. Batman and Stacey are laying down watching X-Men, which we realized tonight came out 16 years ago. Batman wasn’t even born then, he was just a twinkle in his mama’s eye. Lester was more of a steady and heavy pulse of light…but still very much not born yet. Lester is…

Airtime

I’m currently typing this while 30,000 feet in the air on an aeroplane. Yes. It is amazing. Internet and T.V. all available for purchase on a giant metal tube rocketing through the air hundreds of miles per hour.  And somehow, I still get annoyed when they don’t work perfectly, or when I can’t watch reruns…

Lady of the Cake

History

I’m writing from my kitchen again.  I think it’s because I feel most comfortable here. I was raised in and around kitchens all my life. Some of my best thinking is done in kitchens and kitchens happen to be where food comes from, which…I happen to love. Lester is behind me on the couch (Judging…

Front and Bacteria

Wednesday 10 after 7 in the morning. Lester is sitting on the guest bed watching me write at the computer while Batman wanders aimlessly around the apartment meowing to god only knows what. (Lester has already dealt with all the ghosts so I’m not sure what Batman’s after) I’m having coffee, listening to a little…
