Lazy Sunday

January 14, 2001

after we said goodbye, i took a walk, but i didn’t get very far. i wandered aimlessly around the neighborhood, wishing i had pockets in my sweater. it’s a nice feeling, sometimes, wandering through the sea of people spilling over the sidewalks. but tonight it was a little too cold and crowded, and i would have rather been back in my apartment, sitting on the carpet, talking and listening and laughing. i love the laughing.

“what’s two and a half hours between friends?”

not enough, i thought.


i don’t even know why i left in the first place; after hanging up the phone, i just put on my shoes and walked out the door. i made a big circle around the neighborhood until i realized i had nowhere to go. back home, i made some soup and sat in the middle of the still-empty living room, listening to dusty trails and flipping through a magazine i’ve already read.

it’s just me, here, now. a pile of new CDs, a bag of grape licorice and voices still ringing in my ear. (grape licorice? nobody eats grape licorice. who eats grape licorice? i guess i do, now. it grows on you.)

lazy sunday, how i love you. i think soon i will go to sleep.


  • 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.
