Long day at work, my stomach is still upset. Ernie fed me some Pepcid. Talked to my sister. One scan down. She fell in the bathroom today. I wish I was there. I talked to my mother. She drove me absolutely insane but she didn’t sound all that great so I feel a little guilty. Don’t even ASK me about our conversations about cat litter. I got off the phone and was feeling rather WOUND UP. Ernie told me that he thought I was stuck between stations just like the The Hold Steady song.
I think he’s right. Forgot to buy a present for tomorrow’s birthday party when we bought one on Saturday. Christ, we forgot to even rsvp for the party. Leo’s building structures for his science fair this Thursday. He buttoned his little denim shirt wrong today and when I pointed it out this morning he said he didn’t care and defiantly wore it buttoned wrong all day. I do love that guy.
Ernie’s getting a chicken in the oven to roast. I let the boys eat macaroni and cheese with a side of ice cream for dinner. I’m going to cook some orzo and throw in some artichoke hearts and whatever else looks good. I think we’ll start a Gilmore Girls when we get dinner cooking. I think I’ll go to bed early. My neighbor Dave lent me The Devil in the White CIty….kind of brings me back to a different time in my life when I was obsessed with Chicago architecture and history. I think I am stuck between stations.

I just wanted you to know that I am a huge Gilmore Girls fan also. I hated it when they went off the air. Thank God for DVD’s.
This may seem weird considering the circumstances you’re in, but have you ever thought about liminality? Look it up on google. This is what I studied in college, pretty much. I studied anthropology, religious process, rites of passage and how people make meaning. Some anthropologists explore the weird limbo area in the middle of transformations — when people are between stations or between different social identities.
You have many intense relationships, and many people you know are going through intense growing and healing phases. You yourself have had to adjust and grow in order to meet the changing dynamics in a heartfelt way.
Anyway… there’s more to say, but maybe you could look up that concept and let me know if it sounds interesting to you.
Okay, so this is the most random comment ever, but thank-you for watching the Gilmore Girls non-stop. I too own/part-own every season, but I feel weirdly awkward about admitting I love a wb/cw/whatever show. It was such a great show. I was bummed that the creator’s sitcom didn’t make it this season.
