  • Michelle commented on the post, obsolete 8 years, 1 month ago

    it was never really going to be a useful project anyway. We knew the idea had already been used, but we really wanted to make a robot dinosaur to rival all of the others. It wasn’t until it started working that we’d wished we had made a better plan in the first place–what started as […]

  • Michelle commented on the post, motel 8 years, 8 months ago

    it was grimy and dirty and all I could think looking around it was this was hardly the place to be meeting someone. I knew what it would look like when she walked in, too. The guy behind the counter could barely contain his leer when he handed me my key. I know what he […]

  • Michelle commented on the post, involved 8 years, 8 months ago

    Ice cream had never seemed so suspicious, but I knew they were up to no good. It hadn’t been long since the last time they tried to pull some trick, and I knew they were involved in something suspicious.

    it rose higher and higher, as mist does. Floating above the crowd and blocking out the little light left in the sky.

  • Michelle commented on the post, rustling 8 years, 9 months ago

    I could hear it from the other room. The noise was quiet, but harsh, scratching across the floor like the wake of a Dickens’s ghost.

  • Michelle commented on the post, fallen 8 years, 9 months ago

    I’ve fallen out of bed, and that is exactly how I figure this day is going to go. Too early, unanticipated, and just a little painful (but not painful enough to complain about, just dull ache sort of painful). It’s not an optimistic start, but oh well.

  • Michelle commented on the post, common 8 years, 10 months ago

    It’s regular, normal, boring even. If you don’t believe me, you should see it for yourself. Nothing extraordinary about it, nothing worth going to see twice. It’s simply dull.

  • Michelle commented on the post, salute 8 years, 10 months ago

    He was military, that much was for certain. Despite the lack of uniform, you could see it in the way he held himself, shoulders back and chest forward, arm curved and ever ready for a potential salute.

  • Michelle commented on the post, without 8 years, 11 months ago

    Without sleep, I feel my eyes growing tired.
    Without a darkness, I know I can’t sleep.
    Without blinds, I can’t get darkness.
    Without money I can’t get blinds.
    Without a job, I can’t get money.
    When I’m tired, it’s hard to get a job.
    I am forever without.

  • Michelle commented on the post, wash 8 years, 11 months ago

    how hilarious. The word would be wash, while the highly inconvenient man installs a towlebar in our bathroom. I wish he wasn’t here. I wish that i had the house to myself…well, not really to myself, but you get the idea. GRRRRR.

  • Michelle commented on the post, remark 8 years, 11 months ago

    “I’m just saying,” he leaned against the doorway, “you should really consider maybe going to the gym more often.”

    “Why?” I looked in the mirror at my skinny arms, “…okay.”

  • Michelle commented on the post, suit 8 years, 11 months ago

    it didn’t suit her. The bright yellow dress was too tight in the wrong places, too loose in others. It was perfect, as far as I was concerned. I can’t lie, the image of her there, looking far less than adorable simply made my day. I am a bitter girl

  • Michelle commented on the post, spine 8 years, 11 months ago

    spine. Ha! he had no spine. There she was, sitting across the room, awkwardly glancing over, CLEARLY encouraging him to come talk to her and still he sat there, soda in hand, staring at the table.

  • Michelle commented on the post, starlight 8 years, 11 months ago

    it was bright out….i could hardly believe how bright, considering it was 1 am, but oh…the stars there were nothing like the stars back home. It’s amazing how much ambient light can ruin the night sky. I had never realized how many stars there really were until that night.
