today is day one of miss kendra minus cervical collar. and may i say ouch. thank you.
in other news, i was inadvertantly tagged for three memes today. so i have done them all, but deleted any repetetive questions. this is how i will practice my "better blogging." you know, the kind without misery and relentless hatred for the world as a whole.
jenla demanded an avatar of ugly. while i was tempted to show them she who is known only as the beast, i figured maybe i should try anew. so i did.
that's a whole lot of ugly.
then monkeygurrrl hit me with:
two names you go by
1. miss kendra
2. she of magnificent light and beauty
two parts of your heritage
two things that scare you
1. growing up to be crazy or drunk on a permanent basis. i’ve already screwed that up a little.
2. flavor flav’s grill
two things you are wearing right now.
1. red cardigan with sparklie buttons
2. bettie shoes. and yes, i do think four inch heels are totally work appropriate.
two of your favorite bands or musical artists (*right* now – subject to change in the next 5 minutes)
1. rolling stones
2. rachel yamagata
two things you want in a relationship:
1. bad things happen to me a lot.

and by way of tinapopo, spinning girl, and some lovely others...
[A is for age:]
25. that’s halfway to fifty. i’m almost dead. seriously.
[B is for booze of choice]
vodka or coconut rum in crystal light. only because morphine, while a liquid, tastes like doo.
[C is for career]
i have no career. i have a job. a crap one. other than that, i have recently found myself knitting, sewing, and stimulating the genitals of tiny kittens.
[D is for your dog's name:]
worldwide pickles! zeke mcpickles! pickles-san! el pickleso! nipples!
[E is for essential items you use everyday:]
diet coke, contacts or glasses, clothes (maybe), crack cocaine, sarcasm, mortar to strengthen the wall surrounding my cold dead heart.
[F is for favorite song at the moment:]
i honestly don’t know, but “paint it black” is stuck in my head.
[G is for favorite games:]
the one with the safe word
[H is for hometown:]
i have no hometown. i moved quite often. my parents live on the the north shore of massachusetts.
[I is for instruments you play:]
i used to play the piano...some saxophone, some guitar. mostly people. i play them like fiddlesticks. or jacks, if jaks wasn’t the worst game ever.
[J is for jam or jelly you like]
welch’s grape. sometimes. and i would totally like strawberry if someone picked out all the seeds.
[K is for kids?:]
two, pickles-san, and julius boon. that’s right. he has a first name now. he told me when i was all sloppy on vicodin and i totally believe him. i have to- he had a knife.
[L is for last kiss?:]
on the shoulder this morning, as Boy leaves for work whilst i lay sleeping.
[M is for most admired trait:]
i’m tall? does this mean the trait i have or the trait i admire? because i admire the ability to use one’s left shoulder.
[N is for name of your crush:]
julius boon, suckas! he’s mad hot.
[O is for overnight hospital stays:]
i got lead poisoning as a kid and was in an oxygen tent. this could explain a lot of things. also, i once got my head cracked open with a tire chain. cuz i’m a brawler.
[P is for phobias:]
spiders. this is not to be used against me at anytime, for fear of retaliation. so don't forget boon has a knife.
[Q is for quotes you like:]
this could take all day. sometime i will make a post of clever words other people like to use because i am neurotic (a little) and i collect them like the little jewels of discarded celebrity chewing gum that is later sold on ebay. except words have less value on ebay. in the mean time, this is what came to mind:
by the time you swear you're his,
shivering and sighing,
and he vows his passion is
infinite, undying -
lady, make a note of this:
one of you is lying.
[R is for biggest regret:]
i don’t really have any. not asking for more vicodin?
[S is for sweets of your choice:]
animal crackers, tofutti cuties, the meaty insides of Boy’s mouth (good with merlot)
[T is for time you wake up:]
6:45 to walk pickles
[U is for underwear:]
yes! hurrah! i am wearing some today! it must be a holiday. they are black boyshorts.
[V is for vegetables you love:]
green beans, broccoli, cucumbers, green peppers, asparagus, squash (all colors and types), brussel sprouts, fiddleheads, zucchini, onion, tomato (fruit!) etcetera
[W is for worst habit:]
lazy. too lazy to tell you how lazy.
[X is for x-rays you've had:]
teeth, skull, neck, shoulder, chest, finger, knee, ankle, foot. i am accident prone.
[Y is for yummy food you make:]
gumbo, lasagna, chicken pot pie, shepherd’s pie, chicken marsala, chicken picatta, meatballs, banana bread, oatmeal cookies. you name it, i will make it. regular and faux-vegan style.
[Z is for zodiac sign:]
libra. this seems inherently wrong, as i am the prototype for extreme when it comes to feelings, thoughts and personal behaviors, although i am remarkably balanced, impartial and diplomatic when it comes to the lives of others. this dichotomy further proves my extremeness, as well as my tendency to overanalyze and use big words when ever possible.
