Dear one,

It's the same ole same ole really. I just wanted to make sure i slept solid and long. That whereever I went in my sleep made me ready for the morning and for work. We hope for the day that the cat situation will finally resolve itself in a bunch of tenuous times that I have to meet in order to safely take the cat to the heart of my soul- LA. We hope the booking agent gets back to me or that the one guy who speaks english answers when i call out of impatience or that my coworker has mercy and helps me book a flight to seoul and finds that place to take my cat in the meantime. It's all a bit much though. Hanging in the gap and ready to grapple my way to the otherside - tired of shouting out and down about which line to take so i can reach the top safely. Tired. That's all. I'm not fighting for my life or anything.

And i persist on doing things. Spending too much money on too many lattes and shaved ice desserts. I got my hair cut and thinned for the summer which is crazy that i did that anyway. I saw that silly john cusak movie called the raven. It was almost something but it fell short. I was still entertained as i snacked on too much popcorn and tried this squid snack my fellow dragon S loves to get. She's the one who dragged me to the stylist and i appreciated her assistance that we were just going to get it done. I got bitten like 6 times by mosquitos last night. I really do need to get a net.

What else. I got perfume on stick. And a face mask. I set two butterflies free from windows they insisted they could magically fly through. I saw an art installation on the faraway west side of the island. I got a crick in my neck because of stress and sleeping on it wrong. I debate making dinner for myself. The more practical side of myself will probably lose. I think I should just go the beach now. Part of me resists the rest. But i think i should go.

and you give us no pictures of the hair. also a self-portrait or two of the nail-biting over the cat would pull us fully into the scene.

Tell the tale about the bobtail cat, please.

Where are the comments by Kurt? That's why I come to this blog!

wait! how long have you been reading this blog and more importantly welcome back?! kurt broke up with us a long time ago...so we're sorry to disappoint but this has been a barren kurtdesert for sometime now. we at pen and m were totally bummed and left as most dumpees? are with that feeling of what did i do, and why didn't it work out. and we see theKurt posting on other blogs- his wit and sarcasm still a gem/jem and a light amidst tons of irrelevant internet data- and while that pains us, it fills us with a warm nostalgia and joy that theKurt is still out there, alive and hopefully happy. Godspeed to you in your search for theKurt. we will try to be less substandard in the future should you decide to return but theKurt was one in a million so i can't promise such commentary gracing this blog again- a rare light, a delicate flower- gone to never be again.

pen said...

oh my. should we sentence ourselves to blogging every day of august?

m said...

we really should. i mean remember when we hit that low that one time and we (me) were all freaked out and what not- and it's like this time i didn't even notice that we hit an even lower low then we thought previously possible... it's like the newest low would be to go a month without writing to each other at all. and i'm sort of disturbed. like maybe we wouldn't even notice? (shudder)

omg...complacency? that is a terrifying suggestion.
