That Was a Longer Hiatus Than I'd Hoped

Hopefully I won't have such a long gap between posts anymore. I don't know what got into me. Maybe it was that I have lots of projects that I'm trying to work on, and it's been a pain in my tuchus to get them off the ground. Maybe it's that I am lazy. Maybe...who cares. I'm writing now.

This Saturday, I helped my mom pack up her garage for her upcoming move. I found lots of kid-Monica gems, and discovered I had quite the passion for creative writing. I'm careful not to imply that I had any sort of talent for creative writing, but if having passion means that I wrote like a motherfucker, then, yes. Passion I had.

Here's a sample. In honor of fashion week...

Ok, this one is my new favorite! I love that you call mannequins "fake people" and your cutting edge reasoning for why stores have "the same fashion." keep them coming. you could have a whole blog about just this...

i loved your descriptions, and i marvel at how how you were kind of conservative back then! or was it because you were just 7???
