Yuletide uploading is broken? The internets are conspiring against me today.
Best poetry stumble I've gotten in weeks: Kite by Rives. I loved the tone of this, silly/sweet but still full of emotion.
( Not new, but not posted here yetCollapse )
And something I wrote last month on election night, but never went back to polish, so it's pretty rough still.

Well, I'll be even more absent than usual for the next couple of months. The family's moving, mom and sis are going to be living at mom's fiancées house, while I'm looking for a place of my own. I'll be staying with them until I do, and there's no internet connection there at all right now, so there's a good chance I'm going to be offline until after the new year.
So until then, bye to everyone I haven't had a chance to say goodbye to, and I'll see you when I get back online.

Life updates. Stuff like that.:
I somehow managed to rip one of my earrings out last saturday. The screen door chain was unhooked and I backed into it, not realizing I'd tangled it in my peircing. I bumped something else, and when I moved to catch it, I turned and ripped my earring out the side of my ear.
The antithesis of fun.
I'd been drinking, so it didn't hurt _too_ much, but it bled like crazy all over my shirt. It's pretty gross right now, all scabbed over, so I've been taking a kind of perverse pleasure out of showing that to people. Plus the ring in my cartiledge came out at the same time, but fortunately, that one merely came apart rather than ripping through. That would have really sucked.
Other news... I just did a rough count on the poetry transcription, and I've still got over 100 left before I get out of the high school section, and about the same amount of stuff between then and now. My quantity started slowing down in late '97, fortunately. These days I only really write when I'm feeling particularly inspired about something, and when I have a reasonably original idea. The hardest part is momentum. It was easy back in the day to pund out four or five during a 45 min study hall, because I was doing so much of it; now when I write maybe one or two a month, it's harder to get back into the rhythm. I'll do a couple in a week all of a sudden, then run out of new ideas and not pick up my pen for three months, and then it's hard to get back into that mind-set.
But here's a poem for my fans. Well, fan. *waves* You know who you are.
