Riding Past, Sinking In

POSTED BY LauraFries.com IN About Me, Travels

Joe’s Coffee, ATLANTA, Georgia, April 20, 2009 My interests have changed in recent months; my time here in front of this screen limited to short bursts of productivity, never self-reflection. But still I should update, shouldn’t I – because the posts up on here reflect a me that was. So here, a post written during [...]

Giving Myself the Slip

POSTED BY LauraFries.com IN About Me, Atlanta, DC, Uncategorized

Image not available

It’s a tiny piece of paper; a scrap from a time of Texas bills, transmogrified into packing material two years ago. A slip that snuck, across state lines, a tiny cling; now resting on the floor of my car. I’ve moved too much, and in the last one, ended up apart from my things, in [...]

Blurred Vision, Seeing Clearly

POSTED BY LauraFries.com IN About Me, DC, Portugal, Travels

Searching for something else, I found this piece, which I believe was deleted from my blog in the mysterious blog purge of depressed laid-off posts. It republishes today, almost a year later, in a year without things. WASHINGTON, D.C., August 18, 2007 The unemployed know this – how the days can creep by, you, reading [...]

Where is Fries?

ATLANTA, Georgia, May 2, 2008 Yeah, I’ve been hearing that a lot recently. What can I say? Sometimes things have to really bottom out before they rebuild – and I’m in that process. I’m on the way up for a change.

An Unplanned October

POSTED BY LauraFries.com IN About Me, Atlanta

Image not available

ATLANTA, Georgia, November 10, 2007 I drove in at night; four Red Bulls strong, through Virginia and the Carolinas, and the deep dank dark that was northern Georgia at three in the morning. I came from D.C. – a city that wouldn’t miss me – back to Atlanta, a city that had. I stayed with [...]

Delta Burke, I am

POSTED BY LauraFries.com IN About Me

ATLANTA, Georgia, November 4, 2007 Halloween day, 4 p.m. Value Village, Atlanta’s premium thrift store offering on Moreland Ave., for a quick look around to see if I could find a better dress for my cheapo Corpse Bride throw-together costume. But what to my wandering eyes should appear than this monstrosity of a red sweater [...]

Eye Fatigue, So Eye Got Glasses

POSTED BY LauraFries.com IN About Me, DC

Image not available

WASHINGTON, DC, July 19, 2007 My eyeballs hurt. My sockets are weary. I stare at my computer so long that my vision develops mirage spots … swervy spots that look like moisture evaporating off hot concrete. Sometimes, I get so I can’t read … the lines run together. On the metro, my eyes hurt; reading [...]

A Elegância na Praia

POSTED BY LauraFries.com IN About Me

Image not available

It’s true that I haven’t updated in a long, long time. It’s been a long, long month – dive bar Jello shots in Portland, fried bologna sandwiches at Daytona 400 in Florida, draft beers in Vegas, quesadillas in Phoenix, bagels in DC. It’s been a rough month; too much coffee, white bread, sugar; not enough [...]
