Do you ever see a building and know it was something else before? I just drove past a former Wawa, and I knew it was a Wawa, by the faux stone face and shape of the roof, and shitty parking lot.

At a deep level, changes in a language are threatening because they signal widespread changes in social mores. At a level closer to the surface they are exasperating. We learn certain rules of grammar and usage in school, and when they are challenged it is as though we are also being challenged. Our native language is like a second skin, so much a part of us we resist the idea that it is constantly changing, constantly being renewed. Though we know intellectually that the English we speak today and the English of Shakespeare’s time are very different, we tend to think of them as the same—static rather than dynamic.

Tiny house

Filed under: more like dream house

I tell myself that I’ll know when it’s right
that there will be someone new
and when he gives me his hand,
I will finally relax mine
from the fist I’ve been holding it in
since October

but I know myself better than this
I am vicious
and in my nightmares,
he walks away with bite marks
and blood dripping from his fingers

March 24th 1989: Exxon Valdez oil spill

On this day in 1989, hundreds of thousands of barrels of crude oil were spilled into Prince William Sound in Alaska by the Exxon Valdez oil tanker after it ran aground. Between 11 and 32 million gallons of oil were spilled, creating one of the worst human-caused environmental disasters in history. The cleanup operation was especially difficult due to the Sound’s remote location which was only accessible by air or by boat. The spill damaged the local habitat, covering 1,300 miles of coastline and 11,000 square miles of ocean. It was the largest ever oil spill in American waters until the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Whilst the cleanup operation was completed, it is believed that the oil will continue to have a negative effect on the area for many years.

I was born on this day, nine hours after this, and I have a lot of thoughts about that.

I’m working on it.
