12:58 pm - drag queens and rabies
Henry got bit by a squirrel. I'm not even kidding. I think I've mentioned before how the squirrels around here are unusually friendly, because they get fed all the time. A few of them will actually take peanuts out of your hand. Well, Henry was walking to his car to go to work and one followed him down the sidewalk. He turned around to tell her he didn't have any food, and sort of bent down and offered his hands so she could see. First, she sniffed his finger. Then she bit it!! Then she stood up on her hind legs, saying, "That, sir, was a finger. I asked for a peanut." Apparently their eyes are on the side of their head so maybe she thought it was a peanut in front of her. Anyway, he had to use sick leave to go to the emergency room to get a tetanus shot, and now he's paranoid that he has rabies, even though squirrels never carry the disease. So now he thinks he's going to die. The health department won't give him the rabies vaccine because there's such a little chance he has it. The bite barely broke the skin. Anyway, it's hilarious. It'll make for a good never have I ever some day.

My mom's coming to visit tomorrow. Me and her parents. Family time! Yay. No, it'll me nice to see my mom. And get some free meals out of it. The other day a huge storm came through and knocked our power out for 24 hours. Candle light is fun. But we had absolutely no food in the house, and couldn't go grocery shopping cause the fridge wasn't cold. So we went to our Mexican restaurant. A win/win!

We're trying to grow cucumbers. And a few sunflowers. We'll see how that goes. Cause they're on our little porch, which only gets a couple of hours of sun in the afternoon. But so far they're doing good!

We went to the gay pride festivities this past weekend, and we had a blast. We went to the parade with a girl named Kristen, who Henry met on his trip to Europe. She's pretty much awesome, which makes me happy. We officially have one friend. The next day was the pride festival, where they blocked off a bunch of streets and had performances, gay booths filled with gay advertisements and gay products. Henry saw his first drag queen performance.

So, my new activity is reading every book ever written. For the past 2 years or so, I've read absolutely nothing but books about Buddhism (or texts for school). I kind of forgot the concept of reading for entertainment. So, I've been going to the county library which is right down the street, like every day. In the past 2 weeks I've read a book of short stories called Wilderness Tips by Margaret Atwood, Written on the Body by Jeanette Winterson, and two books by Augusten Burroughs, Dry and Magical Thinking. I recommend all of them, by the way. I pretty much read them cover to cover in one sitting and it's wonderful. It also means I have no life. Anybody have any more recommendations?

Only a few more days until Kelly comes! And THIEVERY!! And I'll be going back to Boone to get the rest of my shit. We don't have the money to do that, but, well, I need my shit. I can't wait to see Boone! Maybe there's a way we can stop and see Alysia on the way, that would be grand and much needed.
