If You See Me, You’ll See that Nothing’s Broken

Current mood: impatient

There's an emptiness inside her
And she'd do anything to fill it in
And though it's red blood bleeding from her now
It's more like cold blue ice in her heart
She feels like kicking out all the windows
And setting fire to this life
~ "Grey Street" by DMB

I am obsessed with the SkyMall catalog! Every time I fly, it sits there in the little seat pocket, beckoning me. "Girl Genius, take a look at all the great gadgets you don't actually NEED – but would use for the mere novelty of it . . . just one glance." And I always look. ALWAYS! I flip through the pages, examining each item and reading the mini descriptions. While I understand that dispensing paper towels with the wave of a hand is not necessary – it would be pretty cool when guests came over.

And why wouldn't I want a pen that makes James Bond jealous? While it doesn't shoot lasers or contain a jet pack, it does allow you to store 1,000 mp3s and record digitally anything you need – discretely, with NO flashing led light. The list goes on and on. I am telling you – the SkyMall catalog contains something that you have always wanted; but never knew existed.

Recently, I ordered a high-tech alarm clock from the catalog – but I won't be able to try it out until I get back to Omi-ha-ha!

While at the airport the other day, I did buy a disposable battery charger for my iPod. It was pretty cheap – and it will provide 16 hours of iPod entertainment if my battery goes dead. Pretty handy if you ask me. I really should get one for my cell phone as well, since I am the absolute worst at remembering to charge my cell phone. I don't know why I have such an issue with keeping it plugged in while not in use.

Okay – well I am sleepy and really need to take an Ephedrine. I don't know why I am so tired – as I am sleeping well out here and enjoying every minute with "So Sassy". Tonight, we get to put up shelves. It should be an evening of constructive design!

PERSONAL NOTE: You are not nearly half as cool as you want to believe you are. Still, I like knowing you.
