I’m working an overnight job all weekend long and suddenly I’m paranoid that my purple hair will leave stains on their pillowcases.

I should have washed my hair maybe?

Last night I told the story of how I thought I was a lesbian for a few days when the Hanson song Mmmbop came out. I saw the music video on VH1 before school and was extremely attracted to the one who played the piano, the one with long hair, the one named Taylor. I thought about her all day long! I knew they were all siblings, but made up a story about how the other two were brothers in a band with their cute sister who had long hair who played the piano. What a rad girl! Maybe I also wanted to be her? She was starting to define my very early sexual identity as not completely straight. I even started to talk to my mom about it. But then I found out Taylor was a actually a boy. I was a little disappointed. And the crush was over.

When I was little I wrote a letter to Shel Silverstein and got a letter back from his people that he was away on travels but that he appreciated me liking his poems and drawings. In the letter was a signed photograph. I kept in for a long time in my very important stuff drawer of my childhood room. Back then very important stuff meant anything that came in the mail addressed to me personally, so there were birthday cards from my grandma and great aunts in there too. I wish I still had that drawer. I wish that my important stuff drawer now consisted of things more meaningful than proof of car insurance and credit card agreements.

Tonight I read the missing piece as a bedtime story while I was working.

I still think Shel Silverstein was so brilliant.

Now I’m thinking I need to doodle more often, to travel more too. Oh, and maybe not be scared to reach out to people that I think are brilliant. And read everything I can find by these brilliant people.

Keeping up with the K’s at planned parenthood

Pretty lame that all 23 of us waiting for our free/low cost medical appointments are forced to listen to this rich couple on TV decide whether of not they should put a helicopter landing pad in their backyard.

Out of all the kids I babysit for

The kid who plays the most video games is also the best reader.

Two big things I never wanted to happen while babysitting happened today.

1. I perioded through my underwear while wearing a dress.

2. I was asked by a first grader if I believe in God.

The first one was actually the easiest to deal with.

Luckily no one else was home so I rinsed them in the sink and went commando while they were in the dryer. The baby woke up though so I strapped him onto me in a baby wrap and he fell back asleep while I awkwardly paced around the dryer hoping they’d be done before his moms came home.

The god thing left me rambling about how Mother Earth is a thing too and how I sorta believe in feeling a faith but that I get my faith from yoga instead of church, to which the kid I confused simply says: I don’t believe in him. Because I believe in dinosaurs and people who believe in God don’t believe in dinosaurs. I’d rather believe in dinosaurs.
