here is the view of LA from my house
kieran took the picture

i'm on the outs with "blogging"
and keeping up with the blogs that i have liked 
since the summer between sophomore and junior year
i click on them and scroll down and think

i meet so many people during the day
hot dad tug boat captains who respond "yeeeep" to all my questions
a woman born without an opposable thumb (!)
longshoremen galore, aka longy's
hairdresser turned longy upon the sudden death of her husband at age 40
over-eager 44 year-old bachelors who want to lend me the book they're reading
bitter teenagers, shy teenagers, funny, outgoing teenagers
stylish grandmas, deaf grandpas
moms who go to work and have two kids under two years old
rad self-proclaimed "hot 55 year old" surfer who said:
 "i don't got a lot of friends out there"
and of course, my precious precious zoe, i love that little girl so much, wow

i have been spending less and less time on my computer
no time for that when you have a real job 
and when you get home you're tired and hungry
and just want to sit at the kitchen table and talk and laugh
or not because sometimes i get home and i am a huge crabapple
last thing that's on my mind is formulating some tra-la-la blog post
about nothing in particular or substantial
kind of like this one
