Details are overrated

I refer to my X as Cosmo because after 13 years he told me I wasn’t “cosmopolitan” enough, which was a shock because I didn’t know I was cosmopolitan at all. In fact no one had ever used the word cosmopolitan in a conversation with me so I wasn’t sure that was even socially acceptable.

I like letters, words & language and books, paper and pens.

I dabble with calligraphy and italic writing. I could sit for hours practicing letter forms and copying quotations. I liked ampersands and lower case g’s.  I also make Ukrainian eggs called pysanky.

I often get interested in something like Italy, jazz or herbs and read everything I can about it. I have people fooled into thinking I am smart because I wear glasses and carry books around.

Sometimes I think about munching on my cats’ perfect paws and about how they might taste like cupcakes. At that point my cats usually leave the room in disgust.

I like to bake. I like to sit with a cup of coffee and a piece of pie and say “Damn good cup coffee…and hot!” like they did on Twin Peaks. I like to make  random references to books, TV shows and movies, don’t I Aragorn?

It reminds me of something one of my ex boyfriends would have said. While wearing his $400 t-shirt and anti-poverty bracelet.

    I’m so glad you stopped by and left me a comment, so I could come over and see what you’ve written. You are one acerbically funny gal, and I like that! And I totally agree with you about the & symbol, lower case g’s, and serifs! You rock, glad to meet ‘cha!

    I love it when people quote my favorite TV show of all time!

    I always wanted to plan a trip to Snoqualmie Falls, WA where the opening credit exteriors for TWIN PEAKS were shot. I hear there is a real Double R Diner where you can get damn fine coffee…hot, too…and cherry pie that is to die for.
