Very slow day. I've been under the weather what with allergies, and as such I've spent most of the day hidden away in my room or cleaning up the basement. Also, I'm sure I've forgotten to invite a bunch of people to my confirmation, so I'll give my readers the benefit of the doubt that I'd want them there, and say that it's at 11:00am at St. James' Cathedral in Chicago on May 17th. Hope to see you there, and if you can't make it keep me in your prayers. Tunes: "Look What Happened", Less Than Jake; "Bye Bye Love", The Cars; "Pre-Ex-Girlfriend", Five Iron Frenzy.

Between the ripped jeans, violently green hair, and spiked bracelets, most people glanced at her and quickly looked away, or stared openly. Either way, she was remembered as no more than a stereotype by the people walking by, slapped with a label and shunted to a corner of their memory. Sitting on a bench in the Botanical Gardens, she quietly pitied the aloof ones and ignored the gawkers. Digging around in her backpack, she digs out a notebook and pencil. Flipping through the pages, she finds a blank one and leans over it intently, the pencil tip scratching the page in light, fast strokes. An hour passes, unnoticed as she concentrates on the task at hand. The daylight slowly starts to fade and just as she is adding the finishing touches, a guard says, more harshly than is necessary, "Hey, you! Come on, we're closing up." Smiling broadly, she gets up. "Thanks," She says, tears out the page, and hands it to the guard. "Have a nice day," She tosses over her shoulder, as she makes her way to the parking lot. The guard, slightly taken aback, looks down at the page. It's a a rough sketch of a single flower, surrounded by dark and ominous shadows that loom maliciously. The flower itself is beautiful, and while a few of its petals litter the ground around it, it stands tall and firm, even in the face of the unknown horrors that encircle it. Shaking his head, the guard makes as if to toss the page into the trash, before thinking twice, folding it, and putting it in his pocket before walking away. She pulls into her driveway, parks, and walks up to the door of her house, when somehing by her feet catches her eye. Bending down, she picks up a white flower petal, rubs it gently between her fingers, and smiles. Tunes: "You Get Me", Michelle Branch; "Stuck In A Moment", U2; "Give Up The Grudge", Gob.
