fireflies on parade, or, why i can never manage my summers

too many plans, y'all. too many plans. when summer hits, i just can't contain my desires and then i'm all scattered and dissatisfied for three months. i'm determined to be more realistic this summer, and more organized. tho i have yet to actually DO this organizin, i'm convinced that a huge, soon to be purchased dry erase board will help me get my act together. i don't want to meet another august with a list of un-met goals and half-finished craft projects. i think i'll post a realistic version of summer goals soon, to keep my ass in check.

i have been a busy little critter tho! i knew june would be a sort of frightful messy month. had the friend reunion/arizona trip at the beginning of the month, then a weekend visit with aev in my old illinois haunts (what a trip that was! i do miss that town. we ate and drank and ran into ex-boyfriends, and went to a porch party, bought inexpensive yet stylish jewelry, watched reruns of 30 rock until 4 in the morning, and strolled the streets of normal, illinois. action packed, for sure.). i also got checked off on all my derby skillz and started scrimmaging with the team which is hard and exhausting and awesome and i find myself thinking about roller skates as i fall asleep at night. and jamming. one day i'll be a jammer, you guys. i've also had too much wine at half-off wine night, glutted myself on the glory that is true blood season two, seen a mess of fireflies, eaten enchiladas and awesome homemade rice at raven's, run innumerable errands, and found a local store that sells coconut water.

and i'm also still dithering with the same chapter i've been dithering with for ages. so, first order of business is to get it sent off by this sunday, the 20th. it must happen. i must quit dithering. i may need therapy.

and then it's off to berkeley for my onlyest brother's wedding! i think this will be a memorable event, for reals. now i just gotta get some ducks in a row before next thursday and then i will explode into july like banzai motherfuckin ball of energy and light.
