"i didn't go to the moon, i went much farther, for time is the longest distance between two places. not long after i was fired for writing a poem on the lid of a shoe box... i left saint louis. i descended the steps of this fire escape for a last time, and followed, from then on, in my father's footsteps, attempting to find in motion what was already lost in space. i travelled around a great deal... the cities swept around me like dead leaves... leaves that were brightly colored but torn away from the branches. I was pursued by something... it came upon me unawares, taking me altogether by surprise. perhaps it was a firmiliar bit of music. perhaps it was only a transparent piece of glass. perhaps i am walking along a street at night in some strange city, before i have found companions. i pass the lighted window of a shop where perfume is sold. the window is filled with pieces of colored glass, tiny transparent bottles in delicate colors, like bits of a shattered rainbow. then all at once my sister touches my shoulder. i turn around and look into her eyes... oh laura, laura i tried to leave you behind me, but i am more faithful than i intended to be! i reach for a cigarette, i cross the street, i run into the movies or a bar, i buy a drink, i speak to the nearest stranger... anything to blow your candles out. for nowadays, the world is lit by lightning. blow out your candles laura. and so goodbye... " - tom, scene seven


Crazy, but that's how it goes.

I'm Peggy, and you are my friend. Maybe. Regardless, I'll give you a hug. I love hugs. And love. And friends. And TIP. Whee. I'm a music FREAK. I listen to any and everything, and in almost every entry I have a soundtrack to keep track of what I've been rocking out to. I like a lot of random things. I'm a very random and spontaneous person. I hate being controlled. I collect pins. At the moment, I have 321 of them, almost all bought by me. I'm about to go somewhere, so I'll probably get more. I'm very talkative. I like to ramble. Can you tell? I'm very crazy. I may have ADD. My mind skips around a lot, and my thought path is damn near uncomprehensible. I like big words. I keep all my change in a cleaned out pint of Dublin Mudslide that I bought in the Duke University Union store. I love TIP. Did I mention that? I like quotes. I like singing at the top of my lungs. I want your foam. Bathroom parties rock my socks. I like salsa. Salsa dancing more than the food. I'm a writer. Poetry is my friend mostly, except for when I have no inspiration. I like band T-shirts. I love shopping at Thrift Stores and the Target one dollar spot. I love Hot Topic, but I refuse to let you make fun of me for that. I also love the Loop. I am from the Loop, and I'm proud. I'm a HUGE movie buff. I like intellectual thrillers, and I love quoting them in my away messages. I like to leave an away message up all the time. GAIM is my friend. I talk to smarterchild. I love dancing. I like my lj better than my xanga. I don't really have a singular style. I can't wait to get my liscence. I love driving. Golf carts are fun. I leave room for Jesus, sometimes. I don't let eskimoes stand in my way or in my pants. I normally go for older guys. I've been in love many times. I don't take love lightly, but I fall easy. I feel other people's lyrics describe me better than my own words. I spend most of my time on lj and xanga and writing. I'm a loser like that. I'm loved anyway. I'm currently being stalked. I like guys who will cross dress for me. I will fall for you if you do something really sweet like mention me in your 4th year speech. I want to conquer the world. My iTunes currently has 6545 songs on it. I listen to every single one. When life sucks, I get a hammer or go outside and scream. I am a member of the OSURC. I own two pairs of aviator sunglasses. I wear them daily. Even at night. I am a liberal. I will ususally only sleep with democrats. I have a pin that says so. I am a pirate. I was born on a pirate ship. I saw Barenaked Ladies live. I love going to concerts. What's meant to be will find a way. I'm doing my part to piss off the radical right. Most of my closest friends live nowhere near me. I love taking risks. I meet lots of people on the internet. They are pretty cool. I've been in Vinegar's pants. I own 2 pairs of high top chucks and one pair of low top PF flyers. The chucks are hot pink and mint ice cream green, and the Flyers are bright teal. They make me think of Laura. My fenders don't exactly whip me into a verbal frenzy. If you've got them by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow. Some people say "If you use me, I'll set you free". I say "If you use me, I'll set you on fire". I am a trichotillomaniac. I'm working on getting over it. I am a proud Messingite. I act. I am a thespian, and I know it rhymes with lesbian. I am not a lesbian (sorry girls). I know I might as well face it, I'm addicted to love. I love Boy Meets World, and I miss So Weird and Bug Juice. I show poodles in Colorado. I want to go on Habitat for Humanity. I love driving in cars with Sasha. I chew on candy, gum, and guitar picks. I don't play guitar. I wish I did. I play flute. I've been to band camp. I like romantic movies and sexy rockers. I never have the same two shoelaces in one pair of shoes. All my poetry is free verse. Rawr. I recently attemped to play raquetball. I failed. I love getting henna. Annie Strauman does amazing henna. I watch Foamy and Teen Girl Squad. Ripping up phone books is theraputic for me. I am considering being a relationship/sex therapist or music journalist/critic. I'm a true romantic. I wish Shakespeare lived now so I could have wild sex with him. I want a phone shaped like a banana and a badge maker. I surf ebay, but never buy anything. I drink lots of coffee. I read insane amounts of chick lit and classic novels. I was intrigued by Dante's Inferno, and I'm working on Purgatory. I speak french. Ninjas and pirates don't get along. I am a Rocky Horror Picture Show Freak. I stay up really late. I love sporks. I was a Scavenger hunt captian. I can do the Time Warp. I'm kind of a Methodist. I like composition books better than notebooks. I eat peanut butter straight. I like to watch tv, but movies are better. I love nutella. Ukalaeles are really cool. Polka dots are awesome. I like the words awesome, amazing, smutty, and whoa. Penguins are pretty cool. That's it for now, but I'm sure more is coming.

You may know me as that girl form TIP who hugged and kissed everybody, you may know me as the cruise-licious gal from slutville who was way randy after yummy and illegal Minnesota boys, you may know me from school, you may know me simply from xanga or lj, and you may not know me at all. Anyway it goes, I love you.!

Leave room for Jesus.

Never let an eskimo stand in your way... or in your pants.

You're like a baby and I'm like a cat... when we are happy, we both get fat.

When you walk, carry two sacks, so if anyone asks you for a hand you can say, "Sorry, got these sacks."


Sometimes life is like a dream...then i look down and see that I just forgot to put on my pants.

I'm doing my part to piss off the radical right!

Which is worse.... screwing an intern or screwing the country?

there's lots of pretty, pretty ones...
that want to get you high...
but all pretty, pretty ones...
will leave you low, and blow your mind...

One question: Are there sheep?

"You know you cried the first time you heard 'Purple Rain'!"

Some people say 'if you use me, i'll set you free'... well, I say 'if you use me, I'll set you on fire.

Everything is funny as long as it is happening to somebody else.

Treat your mind like a bad neighborhood - don't go there alone.

Ten out of ten people die, so don't take life too seriously.

Some women hold up dresses that are so ugly and they always say the same thing: 'This looks much better on.' On what? On fire?

Sometimes there just aren't enough rocks.

I feel so agitated all the time, like a hamster, in search of a wheel.
