I think I may have the worst luck with cars ever. So I am pulling up to the Junior League building with a wealth of cookbooks in theback of my car that I need to unload. As I attempt to turn my car off and remove the key the remote portion of my key comes out but not the actual key. I am standing there going WTF Mate? Could this day get any worse? After several attempts to fanigal it out or to have it start my car…I freak out and call my parents. Because that is what I do….don ‘t judge. At which point my Dad says “I thought we talked about getting AAA” which I have not done yet because I am lazy. Of course when he gets there he manages to get it started (you would think that the whole moving it to neutral and back to park would work, but no, it’s locking and unlocking the doors, something I did not think of). Off to the Nissan Dealership I go, it’s a faulty key. They get me a new one no harm no foul other than the hour and half of my life wasted waiting for them to program the new key. Oh and the fact that when I get home the remote doesn’t actually work…..back to the dealership I go to waste another hour of my life in an uncomfortable chair. At least I had a book in my over-sized giant I call my purse.

Leaving is not enough; you must
stay gone. train your heart
like a dog. change the locks
even on the house he’s never
visited. you lucky, lucky girl.
you have an apartment
just your size. a bathtub
full of tea. a heart the size
of Arizona, but not nearly
so arid. don’t wish away
your cracked past, your
crooked toes, your problems
are papier mache puppets
you made or bought because the vendor
at the market was so compelling you just
had to have them. you had to have him.
and you did. and now you pull down
the bridge between your houses,
you make him call before
he visits, you take a lover
for granted, you take
a lover who looks at you
like maybe you are magic. make
the first bottle you consume
in this place a relic. place it
on whatever altar you fashion
with a knife and five cranberries.
don’t lose too much weight.
stupid girls are always trying
to disappear as REVENGE. and you
are not stupid. you loved a man
with more hands than a parade
of beggars, and here you stand. heart
like a four-poster bed. heart like a canvas.
heart leaking something so strong
they can smell it in the street.

1. THE MLB Post Season…Twins Please do me a favor and beat the tigers today and make all my dreams come true.
2. All the amazing pumpkin flavored things that seem to pop up.
3. Breast Cancer Awareness and all the Pink products that come out. What can I say I am a sucker for pink?
4. Halloween Decorations. They just make me happy and remind me of college when my roommate used to make it look like Halloween had thrown up in our house. Those were the days.
5. And last but not least the way fall smells and feels. You can't beat the crisp feeling it has.
