Goals for the New Year.....

Tue, 01/05/2010 - 09:01 -- Birdie

1) SLEEP. My Dr. says that I can't have coffee after noon and I can't watch movies in bed if I want to deal with my insomnia problems. Using the computer after a certain hour is also not a good idea. Lack of sleep over the years is linked with Alzheimer's- he didn't tell me that, I read it somewhere- but knowing that is good motivation to do what he says.

2) RELATIONSHIPS. My goal is to NOT GET DISTRACTED, once again.

3) ART, WRITING, MUSIC......

As long as I'm still awake..... The Mighty Boosh.

If you're a FOTC fan, you might just dig these guys- actually came about before Flight of the Conchords.

A good friend recently turned me onto them. This is the first 1/3 of the 1st episode of the 1st season. If you'd like a little novel humor in your life and you have a minute and you appreciate British humor......or you need a good distraction or cheering up.

Just a minor vent.

Sun, 01/03/2010 - 15:06 -- Birdie

Just a tad fed up right now.
I should not have spent so much time just now on the fucking computer I have other things to do which will bring me much more pleasure and joy in this life vs. torture.
A certain someone's existence reoccurred to me today and I just wanna forget about him and his ridiculously attractive face.

My son has adopted a Jason Schwartzman persona since watching The Fantastic Mr. Fox

Thu, 12/31/2009 - 09:40 -- Birdie

It's been going on for a month now- it's very cute and hilarious, if a tad disturbing. He is really really good at doing the exact same voice- he even says to people now- "You know why I can fit through there? BECAUSE I'M LITTLE." "I don't have a bandit hat so I modified this tube sock." (You look good) "Yeah, yeah, I know." He IS little! He's 4, dammit! I have a mini-Pookie/Jason Schwartzman now! Aaahhh! He has the same expressions as the animated fox son when he says things in that voice too. My kid blows my mind. Just had to share.

She would have dropped everything and come to pick me up in the middle of a blizzard in Kansas if I had made the call.

We sit on the bus
cow fields waving by
cruel jokes by the girls
brushing my long brown hair
her hairbrush feels so good! on my scalp
creamy white spikes running down
feeling her breath on my back
feeling like sisters.

Queer and looking to travel?

Mon, 12/28/2009 - 16:27 -- Birdie

I'm psyched to find this- being bi and mainly having been with men, I haven't had to deal with the stress of dealing with homophobia when traveling (especially with a child) for the most part. However, times are a changin' lately for me, so I was relieved to find this resource. Social anxiety was part of the reason that I became more men centered after briefly having a girlfriend at age 21. Even in my fairly liberal part of the world, I was horrified at the homophobia I encountered when we were outside of our apts. together. It really, really sucked. Homophobia is incredibly hurtful.

My pitch for Alfie Kohn's book Unconditional Parenting.

Mon, 12/21/2009 - 17:57 -- Birdie

I am a fan of Alfie Kohn's book Unconditional Parenting. He also write books about the issues that he has with our current educational system. I'm not sure if I agree with him about getting rid of grades completely, although I think he makes some well-argued points as well as adding an intelligent yet alternative perspective. He makes some great points about the way that we look at our children and how that effects them in the long term vs. the short term.
