Today I was at a shopping center, pulling away from my bank, and I saw this guy who looked like Donny May crossing the parking lot with a couple of kids.

Dammit, Donny. Go haunt someone YOU cared about.

My favorite poet died last week. Play this loud.

So a while ago I gave Nana a little book. My father gave it back to me last week. She'd written in the front, and there are a few notes in pencil here and there inside it.

So what the hell do I do with it?
honeymonster: (Wolfwood)
So, yeah. Nana passed away last night.

On Wednesday, there was a call that said Nana was in the hospital again and probably wouldn't make it the next 24 hours.

Ever since then, my father's been wandering around waiting for his mother to die.

Still no computer to use on my own. Actually, most of it is here, but no-one will help me get it out of the damned box.

I may have mentioned that my grandmother's house is to be sold. Most of it had been picked over when I got to look around for stuff I wanted that did not involve books. That's pretty much okay with me, though--the whole thing is somehow more creepy because she's still alive.

Anyway, I picked out a set of glasses that are both pretty and tacky. I really love these things. In spite of my tendency to drop things, I want to use them every day in my own place.. someday.

I also got some kitchen stuff--pots and a few utensils, plus a sifter. Never had a sifter. Also in the kitchen, cookbooks and loose recipes. There was just a stack in one cupboard, plus two small card files and one big card file.

My cousin Dierdre is getting all the fancy dishes and stuff.

I also got the set of junior encyclopedias from 1949. I really love old reference books and am not sure why.

The most important things all fit in one box: pictures and letters. Found old pictures, including tiny black and white polaroids, of my father and his brothers. Even one of HIS father, who died when he was 16.

Found photos of Steve and me when we were little, plus letters from our mother. I wouldn't have found the letters if I hadn't decided to go through one last envelope of greeting cards.

Steve and I were adorable. I will share some photos if I can, later.

Love you.

If I do not see more pained entries about the death of Kurt Vonnegut than I did when the fucking Wendy's guy died, I will lose all faith in humanity as a whole.

Yesterday, our last frog died. She was a very old frog.. two years as a tadpole and 9 1/2 as a frog.

We were joking that, since she always jumped whenever somebody put their fingers over her tank, she was a zombie frog craving brains.

Rona's father died this morning. He was recovering from an operation to install a pacemaker, and his heart stopped.

Monday, one of our last two frogs, Spot, escaped from the tank. She was found under the pastry table yesterday afternoon, dusty and stiff.

Oh well, at least she died doing what she wanted. She was an old frog.

Monty the ball python died tonight. We don't know how it happened.

We all loved the little guy, but my father is really devastated.

Sidney Greensnake died tonight.

Fucking petstores.

This shit never makes any sense to me. I can sort of understand trying to kill someone you have a political grudge against, but random strangers? These people might have even supported your cause, you don't know. The entire idea is pointless.

Okay, that's all I can say about that. Nothing is going to help, but screw it.

Today after the library we went to the pet store where I met four very nice cats living in cages. I wished I could rescue them.. as usual.

And I found this in one of the books I bought at the library:
I would have unfolded the whole thing to scan it, but it's stuck together and I didn't want to rip it more.

[Edit:] Oh, and I also finally got some toothpaste that doesn't taste like peppermint's ass. I no longer fear tooth-brushing time.

Couple people have posted that Mitch Hedberg died. This bums me out because he was pretty funny. I liked the way he delivered jokes, and his job on "That 70s Show" years back was funny too.

I heard his newer stuff wasn't as good, but I still thought he was great.
