'the adventures of a thirty-ish university graduate' or, alternately and perhaps much more aptly: 'as mad as a barking fox'

no matter what you say, no matter what you do

i find myself falling in love with words.

veracity is a good one. it rolls off my tongue like sweet brown sugar and cinnamon folded in the layers of a sticky bun. i'm also parital to depth, the way the p and the th play off of each other, balancing like an egg on a spoon during a picnic race on a hot july afternoon. and then there's lithium which is poised and sharp, like good old cheese, wrapped in butcher's paper and consumed after midnight with a bottle of merlot to the backdrop of heat leaching from sun-soaked pavement.

spicy, scoundrel, doom, wheat, and grant are also particular favourites.

the hard consonants and soft rounded vowles play off of each other, giving, taking, complimenting, enhancing, completing.

i think it's quite sexy.
