Some people just ooze a sense of authority. | November 30, 1999

Simple pleasures. | November 25, 1999
My parents' dog sneezing every time she gets a whiff of my cigarette. Running into people I know at a random coffeehouse in St. Louis. Going grocery shopping with my dad. Getting really fuckin' high on my parents' front porch....

Greetings from St. Louis. | November 21, 1999
I'm sitting in the atrium of Crestwood Plaza, watching my parents play a medley of holiday tunes as part of the St. Charles After Hours Community Band. Ah, mom -- she always wants me to come see the band...

Its definition is, "An infatuation with a person based solely on the text that they write over the internet." This all came about because of a conversation with a new friend a few weeks ago. I was explaining to her...

The bathroom at work has a shower. | November 9, 1999
That's right, a fully-functioning stand-up shower. The bathroom at my temp job is designed for one person at a time, with a lock right on the front door. It looks like the bathroom from a rich person's home, almost like...

I'm thinking of Missouri today. | November 5, 1999
I'm thinking about riding my bike downtown on a warm summer night, the wheels of the ten-speed racing down the river road. You can literally feel the color green down there. It's caught in every breath, this overflow of chlorophyll....
