Guess who got to go see Dora’s Pirate Adventure live last night? Oh yes, it was me. Kitten and I went, met up with C-Rex and her mom, and we had a wonderful time. And yes, I was singing along to the songs. It was a blast.


in your face.

  • I swear I saw Tim Meadows (from SNL) on a bicycle this morning.
  • I haven’t had any coffee this morning.
  • I sang along to Bryan Adams on the Spirit soundtrack this morning (I had kids in the car).
  • I watched James Lipton interview Angelina Jolie on Inside the Actor’s Studio yesterday and it just made me like her even more. She seems like a genuinely good, albeit slightly jaded, person.
  • I took my fifteen-year-old brother out for a driving lesson yesterday. We almost hit a jogger.
  • I alternated between watching The Shawshank Redemption and Apollo 13 Saturday evening.
  • Manny and I drank some whiskey and watched Dig! on Friday evening.
  • I love the Dandy Warhols.
  • possibly the weirdest thing said to me this week.

    “Now, did I hear right that you’re interning at the Bloomington Historical Society?”
    Coworker who doesn’t know me very well and picks up on strange rumours.

    My response?
    “No, actually, you heard completely wrong, but that sounds like fun.”


    sixteen, clumsy, and shy.

    It’s less than a month until the new Morrissey album is released. Buy it for me and I’ll love you and it will look like this.

    I had a lovely weekend, despite the torrential, relentless precipitation we’ve had for nearly a week. Manny and I stayed indoors Friday evening. We watched Happy Accidents and then went to get Chinese. During our Chinese, we watched The Terminator. I had never seen it before, and it wasn’t bad, in my opinion. Then we had the season finale of Battlestar Galactica, which I loved and Manny hated.

    Saturday we hung out and watched Monty Python. I got my hair cut, went tanning, and then watched IU lose to Ohio State by one point. Not that I care much about basketball, but it’s easy to get caught up in the hoopla. Manny and I had planned to go out and get smashed later that evening, which is exactly what we did. I made my face up all pretty-like, and we dressed alike. Not intentionally, but sometimes we do that because a) black looks good and b) we’re a highly compatible duo. We went to the Lion and closed the damn thing down.

    Yay for the weekend! Now I’m very sleepy. I’m going to blame it on the rain.


    i was late to work this morning.

    Because Kitten couldn’t stop playing with the earthworms in the parking lot of our apartment. It rained last night and they were crawling everywhere. She was delighted. “Here wormie! Come here, little wormie!” she called to them as she clapped her hands at them. She tried to touch one and recoiled in horror, as did the worm. “He’s so cute!” she cried.

    Then I felt really bad as we drove away, knowing that I was probably running over some of her new friends.
