you and me not kissing is a tragedy on par with the loss of atlantis, and about as real.
Dear Miss Manners:
Is it necessary to buy my fiancée an engagement ring?
No. Nowadays it isn't even necessary to marry her. We do everything by the dictates of the heart these days, which accounts for the astounding divorce rate.

rebekah, do you know how difficult it is to see you kiss in my rearview mirror? Or to add seeing you and him snuggle to my associations with you and that couch? This orbit is very very cold.

Good luck, bat.

between losing sQ, losing Mr. Johnson, and risking losing Rebekah I could cry. When you're driving with the wind in your face, tears are awfully cold.

THE CRICKET CAGE
There is a cricket
in my bed, rubbing
her feet together. She
says, "this is no
this is my nature. That
is why I rub
my feet together."
But I know, she
knows she's lying.
I can see it
in her cricket eyes, feel
the quaking in her
exoskeleton. I am
hypnotized by the movement
of her antenae. And I
her emperor, am poised
above her in my royal yellow
robe embroidered with
scarlet-eyed dragons, flavoring
my kisses with black pearls
until I hear her
rub her feet together again.
clichés for a new millenium:
floats your boat
melts your chocolate
turns you on
lights your fire
drains your pool
mows your lawn
sinks your battleship
fills your sausage
bangs your head
loves thy neighbor
salts your margarita
touches your monkey
rolls your dice
-milks your cow
-makes you happy
thinking about staying at Mike's with Rebekah last year: sharing a bed, a shower. It felt very grownup, somehow. If r breaks up with d, how am i going to be able to not try to woo her?

How could Gordon get so much religion so quickly? From being the epitome of hedonism and philosophy and a dumb grin to hardcore fundamentalism. What can do that to a guy?
there are many things I need to learn in this world. For example, to stop parking under trees (my car
seems to be a birdshit magnet) Lots of other of the things have to do with romance.
how/why does r deal with people who don't deal well with other people?
scared+compared- why do so many of my friends have such an easier time with romance?
