the journey

May 31st, 2007 · No Comments

It’s about the journey, not the destination, right? I ended up staying in the big city an extra day so I could pick up medication for my mom’s dog. My mom lives in a village too small for even a gas station and three or four dogs there have foot cancer. Anyone who cares knows [...]

feminism, western civilization, stripping, and wage slavery

May 30th, 2007 · No Comments

You know what I hate? When people who call themselves feminists tell me that I’m degrading myself or messing myself up by being a stripper (“if only she knew what she’s doing to herself,” they whisper). After over a decade of dancing, I’ve got a pretty good idea of exactly what I’m doing, and I’m [...]

so lazy

May 29th, 2007 · No Comments

Today I’m going to be all lazy and self centered and just post a couple poems people have written about me. But wait, they’re interesting! This first one was written when I was sixteen and living in Arizona. The guy who wrote it later chased me around with a knife trying to kill me in [...]

chocolate dreams and this is why I'm me

May 28th, 2007 · No Comments

I spent most of yesterday pulling down an old raven cage (from when my mom used to do wildlife rehab) with my mom and my sister. You know, using the truck to pull it over and drag the big pieces out of the trees. Prying rotting wood apart with a crow bar, throwing it in [...]

this is what it's like when worlds collide

May 27th, 2007 · No Comments

I had the strangest experience yesterday: dinner with my mother and one of my dancer friends at the same time. By some weird twist of fate my friend the hard core hoe (that’s what she calls herself) and my mom started hanging out together this winter. This is extremely wierd. My mother considers herself to [...]

Bro loves it here

May 25th, 2007 · No Comments

I know I haven’t blogged much about Bro, but I’m sure I’ve mentioned how much he loves the ball? Seriously, the ball is his brain, he has the external kind. He can’t help it, he’s a Border Collie. Normally, when we meet people I’ll say, “don’t throw the ball if you don’t want to be [...]

I'm here…

May 24th, 2007 · No Comments

I’m here at my little sister’s house in the big city. It’s really a small town, but in the village we used to talk about it like it was LA or NYC. The way to instant popularity, when I was a kid, was to have a friend in the big city. We would play “how [...]

One of the most beautiful places on Earth.

May 22nd, 2007 · No Comments

Of course most places are beautiful, but some just call to your soul more, and this is one for me. Here’s a pic of the bus in the same place last year. And cookin’ dinner alongside the road. I’m so in love with this place. After dinner I played in the mud and howled at [...]

Van pics

May 22nd, 2007 · 18 Comments

Some people have wanted to see how the inside of my van is set up, so last night I attempted to take some pictures. It’s hard to get a picture of the whole van at once, ya know? Also it was dark, so I couldn’t really see in the view finder until after the picture [...]

I feel kinda skeevy about the pics I posted yesterday…

May 21st, 2007 · No Comments

I always see these tourists in cars taking pictures. I mean, they don’t even look at things, they just stay safely in their car, pause for long enough to snap a shot, and off they go again. You can see the camera starting to come up before they’ve even stopped. I love Alaska and I [...]
