Winter Follies

The other night Amanda and I were looking through this book (I can't mention the title because it is a christmas present). We decided that the best way to read it was to act the part. So we played dress up. We put on our best furs, jewels, baubles, and heels and snuggled back in bed to finish our reading. We took polaroids of our outfits and then John came over and made pasta. Feeling luxurious and under the influence we wrote letters to our friends, some close and some estranged. And then Amanda gave me kewt bangs. All in all a lovely evening.

Sunday night was delightful as well. Ross and I attended the annual Bongo christmas party. You had to bring a gift for a child so we set out and found a stuffed tiger whom we quickly grew attached to. There was a man drawing caricatures there and after a few shots we decided to have ours done. I asked the man if he could draw a Jon Waters moustache on Ross and when he flipped the finished product around to show us we looked more like Frito Bandito and Kathy Lee Gifford than our actual selves. We tried to steal the tiger back but Santa had already bagged him up to take to the children.

<--NOT us.

After that we headed to Amanda Lees for family game night. We could only stay for a moment before the boy grew cranky and it was time to head back to Franklin.

Christmas is quickly approaching. Have you had luck in turning all those dollar bills into Christmas presents?
Tim McGraw is running for Governor?
Who keeps choosing these awful girls for the cover of NYLON?


Playing catch up

I have no excuse.
This week has been slow and painful and I have done nothing but roam around the house, miss my boyfriend and occasionally go to work.

It's snowing outside and I am not happy. Because snow generally means ice which generally means that I cannot leave my house. I am terrible at driving in these conditions. Thanks to the lack of traditional "christmas" weather in Tennessee, I have only had to attempt it twice so far.

1. High School: Pulled out of my driveway and ended up facing the neighbors house behind me. In their front yard.

2. 3 years ago (I think): Heading home from Franklin. Drove 10mph down 65. Had to detour by the airport. Slid and almost dropped off the onramp trying to avoid the slew of oncoming vehicles.

Granted on both of these occasions I had a rear-wheel drive car with low pro tires that aren't even that safe for normal conditions. Now I have a nice german automobile with all-wheel drive. Still not looking forward to dying.

I hate cold weather. hatehatehatehatehate cold weather. New York is different. Yes, It's frigid. But New York also has Public Transportation so I don't have to risk my life operating a moving vehicle in it's " winter wonderland."

Went to see the Cool Kids last night. Pretty good. I hoped I would have bypassed Matt & Kim but I didn't have the times right. I can honestly say that I am not a fan. I mean, I get it. The music is cute. You can dance to it. The lyrics ( from what I could hear) are kitchy and someone can relate it to their life. But as I stated to my friend last night who wondered why I stood there scowling during the set:
"I'm not one to hate on anyone's art, more power to them..but personally if you gave me the option of listening to a Matt & Kim record all the way through or eating raw cow tounge, I would have to choose the latter."

My view on the situation is this: If I (who hasn't the slightest inch of musical talent) can make the music that you are playing on stage right now then you aren't really a musician. It's people like that (and Fergie) who continue to poison what people percieve as good music. They ruin the tastes of our generation and ruin the spirits of those who spend their lives studying composition to keep the spirit of those who actually gave a damn (like mozart) alive.

These are all just personal opinions.


Put your dino jammies on

The new Kindercastle Cd, In a tizzy, is now for sale. I highly recommend putting it on your christmas list ;)

Straight from the baby's mouth:
"In a world full of indifference, Kindercastle offers a sense of innocence. Almost everybody has it inside of them, and this music creates a window that allows one to peer inside their personal childlike state. It seems as if these two young artists are not creating their music, but emerging from it."



Hits close to home

New comics from xkcd are like christmas presents. If this ever turns out to be true, consider me Ted Turner.
