Topics of Interest
Tomato Juice--According to a stewardess from MIA-CUN, no one EVER orders a tomato juice, and she was surprised I did. In fact, people are more likely to order a bloody mary mix sans vodka than just plain old tomato. Then, from ATL-SFO, I sat in the front and ordered a bright red tomato juice, and in a couple of minutes watched not only the guy seated next to me, but six other adjacent passengers m,imic my order. Sheep/riot mentality on airplanes--and why does everyone cry at the movie(also known as Reese Witherspoon Syndrome)?

When Blogs Collide--a list given to me by M. Huntsman to aid in my writers block--
Top 5 All-Time Things Miranda Could Do To Demonstrate To Herself That She Is Not "Blocked" So Much As She Is Spending Her Energies Inventing New & Dramatic Aspects Of Said Blocking:
1) read Freakonomics - it's full of deft supposition, which miranda's mind takes to
2) write a Sex Scene - just a scene, a snapshot. challenge yourself to not stop in the middle and masturbate
3) contribute to an intimate-perspective essay series (to be developed by mark) loosely titled "Tits and/or Ass"
4) contemplate the notion that personification gets oversold. make a list of people you are acquainted with who are distinct characters, either in temperament or physicality. for each, write a short profile that either a)animalifies or b) objectifies the subject
5) write mark naughty limericks.

...and there was also a joke told to me by N. Mathisen. Call me and I'll tell it to you. Fellow bloggers are a tremendous resource.

Words/Phrases
"RUMORED MANIA"--spurned by the new Doughty album, I had to find a suitable one of my own. This one seemed oddly fitting ("oh, you're that Miranda?").

"Monkey Shine!"--an oldie but a goodie, brought back by Bobby Scheppy.

"...and under the auspices of sex and flight, moving and timelines, there was a sole revelation--home is where my cellphone is." --cut from On Your Naked Neck, from Apr 05. Special thanks to Jaxon for the inspiration.

Looked at the artists you like...I think you should check out my band, El Pus... Kinda along the lines of Soul Coughing, Mike Doughty. Sorta. Kinda. A little more (and how do I know you'll hate this word?) "pop". Why am I writing this? Who am I? Long story... Anyway, check it out. http://www.elpus.com
