Shout Out

Last night I went to a show at some friends' house. I was hesitant to go because, well, I wanted stay home and watch something pseudo-science fictiony on TV. In the end, I went. And I'm glad I did. Even though I've seen the band a thousand times (give or take a few hundred) they were great. Let's hear it for Forest World.

Funny Face

Right now I'm watching Funny Face while I study for my photo-history exam. It's totally appropriate, seeing as it is loosely based on Richard Avedon. I love this movie, I really do...Except for one thing. The movie was made in 1957....which means Fred Astaire was 58, and Audrey Hepburn was 28...Not to mention that dear Fred looks every bit his age and then some. Yikes.

That's the number of engaged couples I know.

Last night I had a dream about T.J. Clark.
We were in a museum that had just spent
$3 million on an abstract painting. The painting was purple, yellow, and orange and absolutely hideous, with no theory to even support it. Anyway, we talked about it for a long time. Thanks, T.J. You're the greatest.

They're almost like apples, but weirder.

Pear is my favorite flavor jelly bean.

When I get home from work tonight,
I will probably make a pear pie
(but with real pears, not with jelly beans).

Whenever it's Real.

A good friend of mine absolutely adores the band Pavement.
I've listened to them in passing and it's always been enjoyable,
but never enough to really sell me on them completely.
The other day I was perusing the Youtubes, and I found a video of them.
Playing Spit on a Stranger.
Until that moment, I had only ever heard the Nickel Creek cover...
don't get me wrong, I love that cover,
but the Pavement original is surprisingly fantastic.

Also, I bought this cd (white flag) yesterday. So Good.

Not Okay

Sometimes people who come in to work smile at me too much. I mean like, it's way inappropriate.


Today I bought trail mix from the vending machine, and it gave me two bags. As if that wasn't good enough, I think one of the bags had way more M&Ms than usual. (Although the second bag has a lot of peanuts).

Also, I'll be home in less than a month. Get excited.
