After cleaning up the monstrous beast known as my room I sat down on the floor next to my bed. It came to me then as I looked over my books, My collection of backpacks, and the art on the wall. I must have been born to a troupe of traveling Librarians. Obviously they were part of a larger circus and while leaving Montebello, California they left me on the doorstep of my mothers house.
I'll have to ask around the next tim e a circus comes to town.
I took today and tomorrow off to make my way up to Seattle to meet an author, only I don't have the money to actually go.
My small vacation will be spent making breakfast foods and reading "Villa Incognito" by Tom Robbins, and then "The Gum Thief" by Douglas Coupland.
Also, Tobias would like me to inform all of you that his stare down with the dog (Django) is far from over, I can tell you that from my first row seat this is the truth. yesterday Django and Tobias both sat on opposite sides of their baby gate in an attempt to lose eye contact and tease each other, they both fell asleep and forced me to tip toe around them every time i wanted to leave my room.
I have no idea why, but i love this photo i stumbled on...
