boob alert

it is my opinion that somethings
shouldn't happen to nice boobies.
my boobies aren't the best boobies in the world,
but they are nice. the mammogram machine. not nice.
boobies don't fold.
i found it difficult and uncomfortable to
stand facing one direction while
my boobie was forced to play twister with
a machine whose sole purpose is taking pictures
while squashing said nice boobie.
i was told my boobies are dense.
not dense meaning dumb and i realize
dumb people are often called boobs,
but my boobies are quite intelligent as boobies go i think.
for instance they know instinctively
when i am attracted to someone and
get perky kind of a go for it thumbs up..
only with nipple action.
i was told that with dense(not dumb)
boobie tissue a more accurate test would be a sonogram.
then the bastard man sends the order for a mammogram.
now if a sonogram will do the same thing
without the squishing it would seem that
that would be the main form of testing.
if men had to stick their willies into
a machine that twisted and smashed,
someone would come up with a better fucking test.
i feel for the flat-chested.
i was one of them before having children.
the things that machine could do to flat-chested women
....i shudder to think.
i took an extra mammo-wipe because..well it's funny.
now that i am over forty i get to have one of these every couple years!

i googled myself

it's me and karen g!!!!


ever have a dream so vivid and real
that you wake up pissed
and the more you think about the more pissed you get
then you pick up the phone
call the offending dream wrecker
and go the fuck off!!!?

so when that happens.....
is chocolate or flowers the appropriate apology?
and exactly how long does it take for them to stop thinking you insane.
and if you do a flower chocolate combo will that make it better?
damn my vivid dreams
and creative mind
and quick trigger cell phone dialing finger.....
did i mention the bass ale????

Road Rage

so my 6 year old son has the best sense of humor in the world.
i know most mom's think their children are the cutest, smartest, most talented and most beautiful children in the world.
it just happens to be true in my case.
so i am merging into highway traffic doing at least 50 when it comes to a sudden halt before the end of the merging ramp. i curse. i am trying to get in the left lane and these bastards won't let over and i say,"damn bastards, let me over!"
a truck pretends not to see me and i have to lay on the horn. i believe i called him an asshole.
my son says,"mom, maybe this movie should be restricted."
i look in the back seat where there are at least 4 movies, the whole dvd in the car thing.
"what movie?"
"this one."
"which one?"
i am craning my neck to see which movie and trying to change lanes at the same time and i see that he is pointing around the car.
"which movie?"
"the one we are in, because you're cussing!"
he's hilarious...i heart him!

the stars say...part of my horoscope for today

Keep in mind that nothing around you is very stable so you can't really rely on other people to ground you at this time. Instead you need to shut the rest of the world out for a moment and focus. Close your eyes for a minute and get centered. Calm your mind and let go of your responsibilities for the time being.

You breezed in to my life
Took my breath away
Stole my heart,
Scrambled my senses
Made me feel new
Wrapped up in you
I fear nothing
I fear everything
I fear you

This feeling is not real
And I don’t trust it
I’ve never been here before
I don’t trust my instincts
I’ve been here before
Vulnerable and self destructive
I believe everything
I believe nothing
I believe you’ll turn your back

Trying to hold on to something
That squirms from your touch
Is never a good thing
I’ve been here before
I’ve never been here before
Words leave my lips
And I look for the speaker
To explain why I should be exposed
I am afraid of nothing
I am afraid of everything
I am afraid of you

You breezed in to my life
Left me cold
Took my breath away
Choked me with regrets
Stole my heart
This empty vessel condemned
And unworthy
Scrambled my senses
Made the impossible seem real
Made me feel new
Left me feeling old
Used and unwanted
Wrapped up in you
I suffocate myself
The realization that you can not
Lose what you’ve never had
Brings me to my knees
Struggling for breath
As I beg heartbreak
Not to come near
Dreams get stuck
On the broken edges of reality
And can be used against you
Or taken away
On a breeze

a work in progress

Sharp edges slicing through timelines
Wrapped in barbed wire
Placed in capsules
Never meant to be opened
Locked away
Rusty keys
Fist gripped
Like angry words
There’ve been times
When I’ve held my tongue
Denied my voice
Spared others
A regurgitation of heartache
Messy and filled to the brim with anguish
My past
A gag reel exposing soft parts
Weaknesses that long to be protected
The lighting is bad here
My imperfections look better in low light
Flashes of what was etch stitches of pain on the present
These images of you tattooed on my eyelids haunt my dreams
I try to rid myself of memories of you
This persistence depiction
Of me splayed while you hack me to pieces
With my dreams
Disorganize my thoughts
Mugging me
Leaping forward
At moments to divest me of my peace
When I am vulnerable
These thoughts of you
Our past
Amplify the present
And this present
The on without you
Is bad enough
Without reverb

it has been a long couple of days.
we slammed against knoxville last night.
it was great!
i love knoxville, they are incredible people.
we were supposed to stay but i had ex-husband drama.
and suddenly remembered why i was so fond a the running him over with my care daydream. i knew i would be tired but my goddess, my thought was an understatement. i do not recommend being up for more than 24 hours and making a turn around trip to anywhere. i was so hyped on rock star and coffee that when i finally went to bed, my skin was tingling. remember that cartoon with the therapist where he was drawn to look like he was jittery? i felt like that looked. i was ok on the drive until i dropped off the last passengers. my peripheral vision was beyond blurry and oncoming traffic seem slowed and close. was very relieved to make it home.
i slept until 6pm.
i have never slept that long.
the end

i lied.
i feel drained.
the only good things in my life right now are my kids and my writing. even though my writing of late has bee sporadic and crap.
being miserable is not something i do well.
i have to go find some happy, hell at this point i'll even take the band-aid kind.
i've been trying to be more honest about my feelings with the people i care about.
it makes me feel vulnerable.
i don't like feeling vulnerable.
so i won't do it anymore, besides, it changes nothing.
i'm still ignored.
still re translated.
still lonely no matter how many people are around.
and still unhappy.
the only difference communicating my feelings has made id that more people know how i feel....and it doesn't matter because they really don't care about me.

it has been a little over a year since the flaming fan of death incident.
last night i had vivid dreams of the fire stepping on the flaming melted plastic and metal over and over again.
then the hot flashes kicked in. not sure if they were authentic or dream induced but i had twinges all night. i found myself limping this morning.
right now there is an ache that's not really there.
phantom pains.....strange wondering if it will be one of those injuries that flairs to warn me of something ahead.

for those who don't know but want to, in October 2005 at about 2-3 in the am the box fan in my daughter's bedroom catches on fire. they yell out FIRE!!! i stagger into the room and pick up the flaming fan. the flames go for my face, as i am duck walking it to the bathroom to put out in the tub, and i realize my hair is loose. i step backwards and my foot lands in a puddle of melted plastic and metal. i get the fan in the tub, put it out. fling open windows and go back to sleep. later the burn has turned into something else well it's still a burn but it's really bad, 3rd degree. i try to go to work. i am retarded. i end up at the emergency room, and leave with crutches and one of those funky boot shoes that make everything you wear look bad. the shoe lasted two days.the burn several months.

The coolest flyer ever!

Last Night

what a great way to kick off a new year in spoken word.
the event was amazing!
i got to release my inner pirate in front of clergy and two of them want me to do spoken word sermons at their church. wtf
katz and i began the evening having a conversation with a priest.
we were talking shit to each other and he was trying to edit his poem so as not to offend the preachers. the priest walked by, we put on our good little poets faces and the priest pulled out a cigarette. we both wore faces of ...huuuuuuu
i lit him up.
katz asked if he could say what he wanted to say and if the priest would tell him if it was offensive.
the priest was like," that's the shit some people need to hear."
our jaws are dropped and there might have been drool.
he gives us a mini sermon where we find out he's queer and god made him the way he is and he wasn't going to let the bullshit of the church stop him from being a preacher.
we jawed for a minute then katz and i were called to begin.
i opened, bad idea.
i have never had standing o's while still performing. the priest sitting up front was glowing so and digging every word.
kats won he cursed way more than me and people up on their feet throughout.
after, the priest walks up to me and say, " i had no idea who i was talking to, you are fucking incredible! you are saying all the things that need to be said. i started my church because i got tired of hearing all the bullshit. would you be interested in doing a sermon at my church. my congregation would love you."
i asked if the sermon was like an open mic.
i think I'm going to do it.
i said this year i wanted to try new things.
this i think definitely qualifies!

January 2, 2007
A rush of optimism and enthusiasm could propel you into a more positive frame of mind, Theresa, and while in this state of mind you could accomplish wonders. Your circumstances in life could be totally turned upside down; a change in residence is possible, as is a change in your working circumstances. Don't cling to the banks, flow with the tide. Success and good fortune are on the way - as long as you let it happen!


rough beginning
day two of the new year
i joined an online dating thing
not sure what that means
plans i was making have to change

very upsetting


change has to happen differently
i just have to figure it out
if it looks like what i have now
i will have to flee
