A Quote

I couldn't let time go by without bringing this to you. It's from an online comic I like, and it also sums up how I feel about my roomates. All in one neat little package. Exciting, huh?

"Up until now, I've been polite. If you say anything else - word one- I will kill myself. And when my tainted spirit finds its destination, I will topple the master of that dark place. From my black throne, I will lash together a machine of bone and blood, and fueled by my hatred for you, this fear engine will bore a hole between this world and that one. When it begins, you will hear the sound of children screaming-as though from a great distance. A smoking orb of nothing will grow above your bed, and from it will emerge a thousand starving crows. As I slip through the widening maw in my new form, you will catch only a glimpse of my radiance before you are incinerated. Then as tears of bubbling pitch stream down my face, my dark work will begin. I will open one of my six mouths, and I will sing the song that ends the Earth."

DixieChickaversary 2 Electric Boogaloo

Ha! You thought I was done with this, didn't you? Well, you were wrong, as you were in everything in your life. It's my birthday, again, and as such, it is my Dixiechickeversary, an official anniversary according the list of anniversarys. As my seventh Dixiechickaversary, I believe I'm on the leather anniversary, so keep those cow lamps coming. Anyway, I've decided to repost this post. Hope you don't remember it so it will seem new to you. Speaking of which, you can preorder the Dixie Chicks new album; Taking the Long Way, which will be in stores by the end of the month. So, check it out!!!! As always thanks for all the birthday wishes and I hope to celebrate at least 80 more.

Well, today is my birthday, but it is also something else, something more. It is also the day that I was created anew and bathed in the glow (like the phoenix rising out of the fire) of Dixie Chickdom. It was six years ago today, that my mom gave me the CD FLY as a birthday present. I remember the day well, because, well, I don't know why I remember it so well. But my parents had rented a truck, for some reason that I can't identify, and had driven to the army base to visit my brother. I think it was Fort Jackson, or maybe that one in Fayetteville, I can't remember. So, anyway, they had been gone all morning and I was thinking that I would get or do anything for my birthday, because they wouldn't get back in time. So, when they pull up I'm pretty depressed, but I go out to the truck and my mom starts handing me presents. First, I got a portable cd player, and it was a nice one too, with a car kit and everything. It's the one that was later lost by Ms. Ann Clark at Zeb Vance High school. Side note here, all the years that I went to Vance, and I never knew who he was, then the other day I found out he was the either first, or longest running governor of North Carolina. You learn something new every day, I guess. Anyway, back to the point. So, my mom gives me a couple of CD's and one of them was Fly. I really didn't want it, because I was really into oldies music at the time, and I was at that point, where I was like, 'oh it's country? Then I don't want it!' But my mom had heard 'Goodbye Earl', and she liked it, and she thought I might like it as well. Now that I think about it, if it weren't for my mom, I never would have gotten into the Chicks. But, I took the CD, and it probably took a couple of weeks for me to listen to it. But once I did.... Oh, once I did, I never looked back. The stirring vocals of Natalie Maines, the heart pounding tenacity of Emily Robison, and the down home, terrific fiddling of Martie Maguire (at the time Seidel), it was terrific. I didn't think that I'd ever hear anything half as good, and then I listened to Wide Open Spaces, and they blew me away again. As I've gotten older, so has thier sound, which has always changed, and yet always stayed the same. Through ups and downs, sunshine and rain, I will continue to be a fan, because of what drew me in, a kid whose favorite singer was Bobby Darin. That sound, that talent, and that music. Thank you Chicks, for making this day more than just my birthday, thanks for making it a really great day to remember.

A Conversation

Harley and I are talking about how funny we are:

Harley (H): Yeah, funny things are always coming out of my mouth.
Me (Matches.): Yeah, and funny things are always going into your mouth! Ba-Zing!
H: (quizzical look)
Me: Like, I dunno, like penises or something. (pause) Maybe if they were shaped funny. (pause) Like a Z or something. (pause) Well, not funny ha-ha, just funny weird.


H: Yeah, that's not going on a t-shirt.

Another Conversation

I was half asleep and my phone rang:

Me: Hello?
Person on the other end(POTOE): Yeah, hey, what's going on?
Me: Nothing. (still sleepy)
POTOE: Nothing? What are you doing?
Me: Sleeping.

POTOE: Sleeping? (laughingly) You're asleep?
Me: Yeah, I was tired. (laughingly)


Me: Who is this?
POTOE: Who is this? Sarah?
Me: Nope.
POTOE: Oh, sorry about that, wrong number.

*We hang up*
Is it sad that our conversations have gotten so generic?

Follow the child's cry.....You know the way

I felt like it had been a minute since I just wrote something on here your your digestion. Well, my birthday is coming up, and that means that my DixieChickeversary is coming up too, so that'll be a lovely thing to celebrate. On top of that Easter is right around the corner, and either I'll be sitting at home with no ham, swimming, or I'll be sitting at home, with a ham, and my family, and swimming. Either way I'm going swimming. Brendan Fraser was on Ellen, looking as hot as ever and I was talking with my friend Ingrid on the phone, and I was watching him and not really talking to her and I after every sentence that I said about him I would mention that I wanted to have his babies. So it'd go something like this: "Man, Brendan is looking good, I'm gonna have his babies. OR Mmmm, don't throw that ball like that, I'll have your babies. OR Don't ever been cute and funny, I'll have your babies. OR He's so down to Earth. I'll have his babies." Granted, somebody else is already having his babies. But, he's got plenty of babies left in him. It's just a testament to my devotion to him, because I'll wait for him. I always wonder what would happen if Brendan Fraser ever actually came to my blog (yeah, right) or the Dixie Chicks, or heaven forbid, Michelle Yeoh. Firstly, they'd be freaked out, yeah, that goes without saying. Then, I think, if they weren't too freaked out to stop reading, they would see that I'm fully aware of how weird I am, and not freaky at all. At least I hope not. My biggest celebrity related fear is that I'll meet Brendan, or the Chicks, or Shelly, and then I'll freak them out because I know a little too much about them, or I obsess too much, or I'll start to cry or something. So, I have to keep a cool head about everything, or they'll never want to spend time with me ever. And that would suck pretty hard. So, in conclusion, which I think I'm getting to right about now, I'm obsessive, but not in a weird way, and I think that if I ever do meet them, I'll be pretty cool about it and then we can hang out in real life and I'll go to their houses and stuff and they'll call me when they have problems because that's just how tight we'll be. Well, either that, or they're going to have to use the jaws of life to separate me from Brendan's leg. You know, one or the other.

News 2 Use

I just took action to protect our nation's most imperiled wildlife and wild lands along our borders. Won't you do the same?

Take action at:


If some in Congress have their way, a wall would be constructed along the U.S.-Mexican border, stretching hundreds of miles from California, all the way to Texas. The wall would be most devastating to our nation's most spectacular wildlife and hundreds of species of birds which depend upon protected public lands along U.S. borderlands.

You can help stop this by contacting your U.S. Senators and urge them not to include a 700-mile wall along the southern border with Mexico in the Border Security bill.


Thanks for your help!
