Going up the wide open sidewalk Hilary thought about how many times she had defeated the building and how many times the building had won. Champion swivel doors: 1, Hilary: 0. Even the bacteria on the brass on the doors had won. The security guard wasn't sure that he could let Hilary in.

In a dream that morning she had trudged up the square square stairs and fell asleep on the edge [name deleted]'s fictional bed. Now any time [name deleted] talked there was a halo effect of the mint comforter cover to deal with. Hilary glared bravely at her reflection in the elevator doors, not knowing who might be standing there when the doors opened.

Sometimes I Worry

Sometimes when [name deleted] is the last person I spoke to before going to sleep and is the first person I'm going to see now that I'm up, I worry that [name deleted] and I might be spending too much time together.

At least it doesn't seem to me like we are, or ever do, but I think that there might be applicable social rule. Now you don't see me rushing to look up that rule.

Let's Just Say

Let's just say that there appear to be no unwanted toppings on the pizza, although I seem be allergic to condiments.

I'm feeling better this morning due to the magic of drano. Last night my bathtub water was at tsunami level, staying in place on surface tension alone. Now surface of the tub is gleaming with a coat of mild skin irritants.


Wouldn't it be hilarious if I renamed this blog "the petri dish?".

Because I hate it when people get all Dr. Phil about not letting their problems define them. I mean, the spirit of not letting problems define you is right on point, but I just don't want to be the thousanth person to go:

I'm not letting this setback define me!

You know, like I think I'm saying something new and snappy? And then my friends would go:

Yeah, be strong.

No matter what happens, I do not have to talk like Dr. Phil. It's boring.
