11:55 pm: ok, if I were to say "More than Words" - you've surely heard the song - would you automatically think it's a song about sex?

I was chatting with a friend about karaoke songs, and he made some comment about its message being 'dirty enough to be right on' and my first thought was, dirty? what?

More than words, is all you have to do to make it real, then you wouldn't have to say, that you love me, coz I'd already know....

I never made that leap, not quite, in thinking that's what they were saying. It's love if you fuck me, baby. And now another little bit of the innocent me has died.

09:18 pm: newspaper
It really is interesting in an odd, disjointed kind of way to read the newspaper in the procrastinating manner that I tend to. I have a huge stack of old sunday washington post sections and I take a couple at a time and leave them in my car, and then every day I try to grab one to read on the metro as I go in to work. They range from christmas articles to recent ones, and it's fun to notice the progression in things you wouldn't necessarily have paid attention to previously.

there was an article in the march 4th post about how colleges find it hard to get in touch with students when emergencies are happening, even though ironically there are more means of communication than ever (but people don't always check email, no one has land lines anymore, cell numbers change or aren't given out, etc). And it cited the example of how Virginia Tech struggled to inform its huge student body about the gunman loose on the campus. Finally realized this was in reference to some guy they were trying to catch at the beginning of the fall semester - - I actually remembered that once I read it, vaguely remember calling C. to find out what was going on, I think his classes were cancelled but otherwise everying was ok. But how weird to read about that now.

generally, on the ride home, i read the Express for that day to balance things out and catch up on the current times. i saw this tiny blurb in it about the call girl scandal and it mentioned that a top state department official had abrutly resigned in the wake of it, and they finally mentioned it was Tobias!! Craaaazy. He said he only ordered legal services like 'massages', lol. But then it was amusing to see the March 4th Post report that they had... oh, i think just arrested the woman leading the call girl ring, and she was considering selling the list of all her patrons to raise money for her legal defense.

And now i'm giggling because I looked up "call girl scandal" on google real quick to see if that list has gotten out yet (how crazy will that be, boy) and ever-helpful google came up with this side link for me:

the poet who wrote one of my favorite poems ("Poem (for EMA)"), i just discovered she teaches at VT. how random.

now, instead of going to bed, i'm looking for more of her poetry...


most faces are made up
before the public is faced
whether male female or child
it's always so appropriate
doncha know
to put a little mascara
around the eyes

we make up fantasies to face life
we need to believe
we are good on the job
or at least in the bed

we make up lies
to impress people
who are making up lies
to impress us
and if either took all
the make up off
life would not be
worth living

we make up excuses
to say i'm sorry –that-
forgive me –because-
and after all didn't i tell you

and i make up with you
because you aren't strong
enough to reach out
to say
come home i need you

04:38 am: signing statements
Bush, for example, said he'd disregard a requirement that the director of the
Federal Emergency Management Agency must have at least five years experience and "demonstrated ability in and knowledge of emergency management and homeland security."

His rationale was that it "rules out a large portion of those persons best qualified by experience and knowledge to fill the office."


seriously? seriously??? what the hell other type of experience and knowledge besides that of emergency management would render people best qualified to head the Federal Emergency Management agency??

(valuable Arabian horse work, anyone?)

What sort of key are you and what do you unlock?

You're a spare house key under the mat. Few people know you're there, but those who do recognize your worth, especially when they get themselves in trouble. You might want to be a little more noticable, but not everyone should know you're there.
