I could cry. I spent the past 40 minutes writing some nice weepy ruminations on turning 30 and my damn extra sensitive mighty mouse made me lose it. Guess it just wasn't meant to be. Which is a shame really. It was about the laundromat, my love for Janell and how she relates God's love in real ways, the amazing meal she cooked this evening, David George and skyping through weird times, missing my estranged friends, Bob Dylan and how I feel like I've yet to learn a thing in life, my workmates and how they made my day with simple Chinese food, how I've felt the love so much in the past few days and knowing that I'm only going to feel it so much more as I get closer to and past Wednesday... so much good stuff lost.

Realized that some people never listen to themselves talk and wouldn't know irony if it tied them down and gave them an extensive, multi-year lesson series on the basics of the subject and how you can spot it in your life and in the lives of everyone who's ever walked the face of the Earth?
Felt pride in the fact that my Mom is living proof that you can teach a middle aged dog lover many new tricks?
