R.I.P Stu’s Car


Stu had told me that his car had gotten scrunched by a lady in Troy. She was trying to parallel park and didn’t know the difference between Reverse and Drive. She also, apparently, wasn’t too swift with the breaks.

Stu’s car went to the shop and never returned. It was too far gone.

I had three years of memories with this car; in fact, I knew things were going well with dating Stu when he said, generously, “Feel free to drive my car, I never use it.” That never happens!

I drove that car. We had adventures. When I was freelancing full-time, that car took me out, away, anywhere but here. I discovered precious places in that car. Went to towns like Montreal, Montague, Providence, New York, an abandoned pig farm in central Massachusetts, a bed and breakfast in New Hampshire, a girl’s camp in Maine, Philadelphia for one of the last Sleater-Kinney shows ever.

I will miss you, car! Thanks for protecting me and providing me tunes and letting me cry and think and love and live just a little bit more in the moment.

Out to lunch


This blog, as it is, isn’t really a priority at the moment.

It’s too bad in some ways, because I get a heck of a lot of hits from Gilmore Girls fans, and living in New York, away from New England, in a state of New England-stalgia, I’ve been thinking a bit about the show, what it means to me, what I’ve learned from it, stuff like that. But I haven’t been thinking about it that much. Enough for a blog post, certainly.

I wanted at one point to list everything I wrote this year, which is as good a biography as any, but I wasn’t that interested.

I like the new year and all the symbolism that comes with it. I had an excellent holiday break. I have found the secret to a grand New Year’s Eve; go to a bed and breakfast with the person you love and dare each other to go outside into the hot tub in subfreezing weather.

I guess the best way to describe how I’m feeling right now, and this can certainly be applied to this website, is transitional.

I’m on the hustle and bustle. I’m going outside.
