Every good boy does fine

October 29, 2002

mostly, really, it’s just hormones coupled with nerves and a lack of patience. by this time next week, i expect i will have calmed down considerably. i’ll be able to focus on perfecting the hot toddy, finding the perfect brown boots and planning my uk holiday.

i know it’s fall because when i leave the office, it’s pitch black. when i wake up in the morning, my nose feels like it’s going to explode. my bedroom is chilly and i skate around my hardwood floors in socks.

i finally changed the lightbulbs in my bedroom. that’s one of those sentences that might sound really cryptic and horribly mysterious — or perhaps like a play on the concepts of dark and light — but it actually has no significance whatsoever. i just forgot how bright it gets.


  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
