Everyone is pregnant. Seriously, if you are a friend of mine, you should pee on a stick immediately because you are probably pregnant. Maybe it is just my age. This is probably going to start happening more and more as I get older. Still, each year it astounds me. I have no less than three friends who are pregnant, one friend who is almost pregnant, and now my favorite blogger is pregnant! I wonder if the human animal is very fertile in early fall in order to have spring/summer babies, when the weather is better and food is more plentiful. It really seems like that’s the case with all of these.



In 4,000 years when they dig up my grave, I want them to find me like this, in the arms of my love. I mean, the circumstances seem tragic. Obviously their children are with them. They were probably victims of a violent attack, and that part I can do without. The eternal rest thing though, that’s something I can get behind.

okay, I get it, people are definately raising hell on this campus

The following is a message from Washington State University:

Four males attempted to abduct a another male by trying to force him into a nearby vehicle. The victim was able to break free and escape.

The victim filed a report with police indicating that at approximately 1 AM on the early morning of Nov. 11th four males tried to push him towards a white vehicle. The incident occurred in the alley between Colorado and Campus Streets, most likely in the 400 block. The case is under investigation by the Pullman Police Department.

Anyone having information about this incident should call the Pullman Police Department at 509-334-0802 or the WSU Police Department at 509-335-8548.

Today is a terrible day for prank calls. This afternoon someone called me. It sounded like it could be a friend who accidentally dialed my phone number from inside their jacket pocket or something. There were muffled voices. Then someone said, "So, are we going to kill that guy tonight? I have all of the weapons," then phone prank-style giggling. I hung up puzzled, but then realized what a terrible day it was for a prank.

Tonight, an apocryphal sunset.

I teach yoga and meditation tonight, but I have all of this nervous energy. I have no idea how I’m going to be soothing.

But for now, these guys:
