Obsession…(Ikea)

In obsession on April 22, 2008 at 23:13

I have fond memories of the ball room in the Ikea closest to the house where i grew up in PA ( which apparently is no longer there). I remember the 3 white Billy bookcases that my parents got me for my newly panted room. They are now located in my old room in delaware.. tattered and very worn, but still functional. I make a point of going to the Ikea in every city i live in. When i moved to seattle i ended up spending nearly $800 on a complete Ikea room. I loved it. Ikea is my friend. I had the realization the other day that the original Ikea is only a ferry ride away in Sweden. But i have no plans to rush there. I am afraid that it will either be way too much Ikea to handle, or just a big disapointment. So i will just imagine the Swedish Ikea themepark in my head and stick to the off shore shops.

( this trip to ikea i left with only one bag for laundry, one house plant and pot, 2 stuffed animals for the kids i watch, and one thermos €23.47)

Obsession… (Rust)

I find that i am more likely to absently run my finger along a rusty fence than a new and shiny one. I catch myself gazing at bits of rusty rebar trying to think of an excuse to take it home. I went on a small hike today. I saw beautiful things, and i bought home a rusty nail i found laying on the ground.

Obsession… (Stalking)

I like to people watch. I silently observe the world around me. I’m never hidden, yet somehow no one ever notices me.

(Photo of Thor taken in 2005 by me.. i was drunk)

In 2005 i lived in paris. That was the year i started drinking. It was also the year i was obsessed with a danish bartender named Thor.

Minulla on …

In finland on April 16, 2008 at 23:32

Kun minä olin nuori olin isän näköinen, mutta nyt enemmän äidin näköinen. Minulla on kaksi ruskeaa silmää, ja valtavat silmäpussit. Minulla on monoia pisamia kasvoissa. Ja kun minä hymyilen, minulla on pikku hymykuoppa. Minulla on kaksi suurta ryppyistä kättä, ja sairaan isot jalkaterät. Minulla on pieni tatuointi selässä. Minä en ole pitkä, enkä lyhyt. Minä en ole vanha enkä nuori, mutta olen enemmän nuori kuin vanha.

When i was young i looked like my dad, but now i look more like my mother. I have 2 brown eyes, with huge bags under them. I have a lot of freckles on my face. And when i smile, i have tiny dimples. I have 2 big wrinkled hands, and freakishly large feet. I have a small tattoo on my back. I am neither short, nor tall. I am neither old nor young, but i am more young than old.
