i hope everyone had a nice holiday with at least one of the following:
a) family they love to be around
b) friends they love to be around
c) cool present of any sort, even if it was a chat with someone from category a or b over some mulled wine or something
e) good food!
ok. so i am at my parents house and i am trying to figure out ‘what do i need from here in my nyc apt?’, and the answer is soooo obviously NOTHING, bc my nyc apt is SMALL and i have EVERYTHING i could need, EVER, and even then SOME.
but looking i am. old journals? raw food cookbooks? or maybe some of these things: (just kidding; these things will promptly be removed from the box in my closet and thrown out with the xmas trash.)
a record made by some guys from a nieghboring town who i thought were so cool bc they were in a ‘punk rock band’. highlights included a track entitled ‘He Died on the Lawn (of Cake and Heroin)’ with the lyrical wonder lines of “I’ll hang up and call you right back again/Can you drive me to the bar?/ It’s only 2.2 miles from here/ …. / I’m not afraid (x47). ”
or maybe i should bring the business cards my friends and i all traded from the jobs we landed out of college. waitt….. no one is still at any of those jobs…
OR theres always that litery journal from Temple where i published a poem. (which may rightfully be called ;the worst thing i have ever, ever!, typed in my life. very cringeworthy)
runner-up options: -shoebox upon shoebox of photos from jr high, high school, college, and some post college. quite a few are drunken, unrememorable nights. almost all feature an ugly outfit/ person i think id rather forget/ red eyes. or people i have actually forgotten.
-exboyfriend’s music/ art/ letters/ cards/ notes/ gifts/ etc
-books by james joyce and thomas pynchon i think i will suddenly, one day, be smart enough to understand
-cd cases!!! (i wish i didnt care about the enviroment and could just add to landfills like all the proper americans do!)
-and this tops it all: omg i found a package of two glowsticks!!!!!!! i am soo surprised no one from my age group has developed a weird dieases from swallowing one of those. no, from even having putting them in their mouths!!!
goodnight. happy holidays, lovelys.
