her: what do you want for supper?
me: i don't know. what do you want?
her: i don't know.

...long silence...

her: do you like popcorn?
me: yes.

we tried out the dance-electronica section of on-demand videos during supper. it was a weird list to choose from. we listened to cut copy and daft punk, which were the best options available, but wouldn't have been my first picks for an introduction to dance music.

lxy, Friday, 28 November 2008 23:26 (eleven years ago) link

two weeks pass...

i was talking to my mom about a clothing catalog i used to look at called "girlfriends" which had cute stuff for teenagers so she looked online but couldn't find their website so i looked and instead came across some lesbian stuff that made me blush and i said NEVERMIND NEVERMIND NEVERMIND and then she told my dad and then my dad said he couldn't talk to me because he had to go look it up for himself.

lxy, Sunday, 14 December 2008 06:22 (ten years ago) link

I have a little conundrum about Carrie. She says she can’t afford to buy anyone presents (because she went and bought a big-ass horse trailer)

evening with my aunt (and uncle)

lxy, Monday, 29 December 2008 06:59 (ten years ago) link

i love her (and him)

lxy, Monday, 29 December 2008 06:59 (ten years ago) link

when i was little (<6) they came to visit, and my sister and i were displaced so they could sleep in our room. when they left i was really sad. but in the wastebasket there was a tissue my aunt had used to blot her lipstick. also it smelled like her perfume.

i intended to cherish it because it was a little bit of her that remained behind, but for some reason my sister derided me and crumpled it up.

lxy, Monday, 29 December 2008 07:04 (ten years ago) link

she still smells the same xoxox ::::))))

lxy, Monday, 29 December 2008 07:04 (ten years ago) link

also i had a madcrazy crush on my uncle because he was so handsome and nice.

lxy, Monday, 29 December 2008 07:08 (ten years ago) link

biological uncle?

jergins, Monday, 29 December 2008 07:09 (ten years ago) link

aw hey it doesn't matter when you're so little it's mostly just "I want to sit next to UNCLE CHRIS," but no, not a blood relation.

lxy, Monday, 29 December 2008 07:15 (ten years ago) link

sweet stories, thank you

jergins, Monday, 29 December 2008 07:28 (ten years ago) link

tehresa, Monday, 29 December 2008 14:43 (ten years ago) link

oh yeah and:

she told how she never remembers which kind of scotch she likes best but her son does, so he gives her a bottle every birthday, acting like it'll last her till her next birthday. then she did her signature "yeah right" scoff-laugh and we lolled a lot.

<3<3 she had 2 johnny walker black on the rocks. <3<3

lxy, Tuesday, 30 December 2008 02:02 (ten years ago) link

i don't think she is any more, but she was once an inveterate secret smoker.

(information received from her daughter, also a secret smoker)

lxy, Tuesday, 30 December 2008 02:04 (ten years ago) link

they sound <3 but not very successful at being secretive.

estela, Tuesday, 30 December 2008 02:06 (ten years ago) link

well, they are also both inveterate talkers

lxy, Tuesday, 30 December 2008 04:53 (ten years ago) link

that doesn't run in your family, does it?

jergins, Tuesday, 30 December 2008 06:05 (ten years ago) link

my dad, on voicemail:

jergins, Monday, 16 February 2009 02:51 (ten years ago) link

one of the valentine trinkets my dad bought was a rainbow-heart.

i'm sure he has no idea whatsoever.

lxy, Friday, 20 February 2009 04:23 (ten years ago) link

i'm gonna send it to tehresa since she was a fan of the heart drawer.

lxy, Friday, 20 February 2009 04:24 (ten years ago) link

lxy, Thursday, 21 May 2009 20:06 (ten years ago) link

lxy, Friday, 22 May 2009 00:01 (ten years ago) link

it's kinda fucked up to be able to hear my mom talking to people (neighbor, sister) about me

lxy, Friday, 22 May 2009 00:55 (ten years ago) link

we watched the mariners game --they lost-- then i fell asleep during a live performance of romeo and juliet by the nyc ballet at lincoln center. leslie stahl interviewed the correographer, petet martins, during the intermission; she was really stupid, her questions were terrible. the guy was impatient with her but she was too dumb to notice.

lxy, Friday, 22 May 2009 18:30 (ten years ago) link

she kicked my ass at some facebook word game. we set it up on two computers and hollered GO and off she went

seven months pass...

funny memory: at the gathering before my grandmother's funeral, in the midst of the somber murmers and quiet conversations, my mother burst out happily and loudly, "IT'S DOODLE!"

"doodle" was the nickname of one of my mom's girlhood friends, who had shown up unannounced because she had seen my grandmother's obituary. she and my mom hadn't seen one another for maybe 40 years.

it makes me laugh every time i think of it. IT'S DOODLE!
