Got home early...

February 3rd, 2007 (12:39 am)

Short but lucrative night at work--walked at 10:30 PM...
Been here trying to catch up, have had two Tecate and am making some pasta...
That I plan to carry into my room and eat while watching SCRUBS.

Then Sleep.
Then do it again tomorrow.

Have Sunday off...Am thinking I will go to Molly Ivan's funeral.
It's at 2 PM, streets should be clear.
I'm not sure if I can decide if it is triumphant
or not
to be buried in Texas, on SuperBowlSunday?

From what I have read in the last few days...
I believe Molly would find this all very amusing.

I really did not know who she was...
Maybe that is why I want to go
to hear people who knew her
talk about her, celebrate her life.

I feel quite the fool for having missed out.
Several Friends from out of State sent me emails regarding her death,
and how much I must.......

Yes. I think it would be good for me.

A strange thing to do, attend a funeral to help find oneself again, ones joy?
But I think it may be just the sort of experience
I need.

I'm sorry to have missed out on her for so long,
But like most of my Heroes...she left her mark in print, and that is not
so easily
lost.

Ah...I think my pasta is done.
Time for jammies and pesto and a little JD
before I hit the land of Nod.
