i just can't seem to remember

sometimes i get these moments where a light bulb goes off over my head and i think, that would be a perfect blog post or poem or short story or whatever and i should really write this down but it's just such a perfectly awesome idea that there is no way it will ever leave my head until it is written down in all of its literary perfection so i'll just wait until later so i diminish it with bullet points. because my internal dialogue is usually one big run-on sentence. and speaking of dialogue, i'm never sure whether it's just dialog or with the ue. is one british? i write it with the ue but i've been told i'm being pretentious when i do. anyway, sometimes i get an idea and then i completely forget it later. and all i'm left with is, i know it came to me when i was thinking how bad a decision it was to wear a black shirt when all of my grandma's cat hair shows up clearly on it. did it have to do with cat hair? or black shirts? or cats who wear black shirts when they lose their hair? and then i'm stuck with a blog post that is not perfectly genius because i have the memory of someone with really bad memory.

but that's life. or so i've been told.

i've made a decision to wear necklaces more often because i have some really pretty ones but go through long phases when i don't wear any. in the spirit of random announcements, the liar next door had a bad day yesterday because he missed something that he didn't know about and then got yelled at for not being there. poor liar.

today we took one of my grandma's cats to the vet because she's having trouble breathing. then we went out to breakfast. then we went to a museum and drove by yale because none of us felt like walking through it after spending hours in the museum. now my grandma is taking a nap (she was up most of the night with her cat) and then we are going out for dinner with her friends. i am making a conscious effort not to think about the rapidly approaching semester every two minutes.

    1. we had a great time, and yes it was. it seemed smaller than i remembered it but still really cool. they added a whole section about how much food people are eating and getting fat. did you know that eating a medium sized popcorn at the movies is like eating four hamburgers and twelve pats of butter?

  2. I always write it "dialogue." And also, how is it that when you put on a black shirt, take the time to lint roll it, and avoid all animals like they're the plague, you still find yourself covered in hair when you exit the house? I'll never understand...

    1. right? black shirts are the absolute worst lint/hair magnets i have ever seen. and it can't just be that things show up on them more. they really do just collect hair from across the room.
