Snarkland’s Question of the Week

Which is more important– the actual experience, or the memory that remains of the experience after it is over? Interesting question. You can’t have the memory if you don’t have the experience. But does that make the memory more important? I don’t know. Then again, if you had […]

Monday Madness

1. Name 1 comedy movie you’ve seen.There’s Something About Mary . . . why this is the one I think of, I do not know. 2. Name 2 black and white films you remember seeing.Seen lots of black and white, movies were better back in the day when […]

Another SNA Epidsode

Sunday Night Anxiety, again. Can’t sleep. Went to bed. Rolled around for two hours. Listened to the boy on the other side of the wall mumble in his sleep for awhile. Said fuck it and got up. *SIGH* Why do I do this? There’s no need for it. […]

Cold Case

Do you ever watch it? It rips my heart out every episode. Slays me. Makes me weep. “. . . I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, […]

Go On Take the Money & Run

It’s funny how certain songs take you certain places. In the same way that AC/DC’s Problem Child always reminds me of Bradley Hogan, Sheryl Crowe’s All I Wanna Do takes me to Uncle Terry’s club. Reminds me of Darren mostly. Darren and Uncle Terry and me, the Barnettville […]

To Halloween or Not to Halloween

Beautiful friggin’ day here! Finally! Blue skies. Sunshine. I’m going out to get some sinus meds. I need antibiotics, I know, have appointment with the doc for next time I go home. I could go to the emergency room here, but I’d rather suffer the pain at this […]

Saturday Six #81

1. What is a bigger pet peeve for you: someone trying to talk on a cell phone during a movie, a baby crying in a restaurant, a dog barking on your street, or music played loud enough to rattle windows. Definitely the cell phone. I dislike them under […]

The Last Summer

It was the ultimate loner summer of insomnia, deja vu, anxiety, two boyfriends, a PEI vacation, the lady in black and a beauty pageant. The summer following my high school graduation I lived alone in my parents house while they summered with the Coughlan clan at the camp. […]

Hair Again

Yesterday I bought hats. Hats again. Has it been a month since I bought the last three hats? I think not. What is up with this sudden hat fetish? I keep buying ’em, though I’ve yet to wear any out in public. Yesterday’s hats are really cute though, […]

Rude Awakening #14

Things got a little rowdy in the house last night — many kids, much drinking, at least one dog, a wrestling match, bass rattling window panes — thankfully only until about midnight when the clan departed for another party or bar. Then 4 a.m. — CRASH! right by […]
