“Perfection Adjacent”

April 3, 2012


The Perfect Day

Lawd. Have. Mercy. It’s over. Thank you Margieville, for the incredible and succinct description of my statistically insignificant completion. I don’t know if I’ve squeaked by with a B- (you brilliant thing you!) but I have most likely passed. And right now, that is all that matters. Never before have I  let those words escape […]

Giving Thanks

November 24, 2011
