So, this is my life.

And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.

planning for the future

i was chatting with my good amigo manuel recently about plans after graduation, the job search, getting married, and other crazy things that seem so far away but are really just around the corner. during the conversation, manolo said something that shocked me, something i've thought about a lot since.

he said, "within two years bill and i plan to move to move to denver. we thought about new york, but... it'll be underwater someday." so matter-of-factly. so certainly. as if new york being flooded were as certain as the sun setting.

i couldn't help but wonder: should i consider global warming as i plan my own future? should i begin moving inland now? should i visit venice one last time, before it sinks completely? should i get a cool map-of-the-world tattoo on my back like that creepy little girl in Waterworld had?

i don't know about all that, but what i know for sure is, there are a few cities to which i will not be moving:
-new york
-miami
-dc


and to my dear friends in new york... um... maybe you can find your house on here? :-)



HAPPY EARTH DAY!

good point.

maybe in 20 years, you and your slutty friends won't have to trek all the way to fire island to lounge on the beach and stare at hunks.

Just kidding, we already are, just kidding just kidding just kidding...
