+ There seem to be a couple big fans on my f-list, so I figured I'd ask... In my time, I've heard maybe three Decemberists songs in their entirety. I didn't care for The Soldiering Life
but I really, really like Red Right Ankle
and Here I Dreamt I Was An Architect
. So, as much as that tells you anything, can you rec me some other songs by them to check out?
+ I can't find my cellphone charger, so I haven't turned it on in ages, but I managed to get it working long enough yesterday to check messages, and besides a couple messages from my parents, there were two messages from my friend Liz.
Message 1: Hello! I'm just calling to wish you a happy holiday! I thought it would be better if I called than sending you an e-card written in Arabic that I didn't understand. So I hope that you are celebrating by reading some nice sports porn or some such thing....
Message 2: See once you get me started calling, it's really hard to get me to stop. It's Liz, it is...Friday night? Whatever. I'm all by myself at the Arundel Mills Muvico Egyptian whatever? The Jillian's movie theatre. I'm going to see Capote by myself. I'm figuring I'm probably gonna be the only one in the theatre. ...You know how at the Muvico you buy your ticket and there's the little space where you walk and then you go to the ushers? So, right above the door to get into the place where they take your ticket, is a huge poster for The Gay Cowboy Movie. And I really - it warms my heart and I wanted to tell somebody about it and I figured that you would appreciate it, so I'm telling you. I hope that it warms your heart as much as it warms mine. I don't know if it's because Jarhead is opening this weekend so they want to get the Jake Gyllenhaal crowd? But anyway, prime advertising position. And there is a gigantic floor display for RENT right behind it....
Liz, I know I don't tell you near enough, but I love you a million Swedish fish ^_~
+ And speaking of messages from my friends, I came back from being away from my comp, to find [Bad username or site: johnnybvo / @ livejournal.com]
gripping about having been scarred for life when he stumbled across Duck Tales
slash. (Don't ask me, I have no idea.) The content of which he felt the need to SHARE WITH ME and so I am now scarred for life. Because, clearly, that's what friends are for :-P
+ Tackling big projects on my plate has proven completely and totally unpossible. Going with clearing off the little stuff (cleaning my room, doing laundry, dropping off mail) and then maybe, MAYBE I'll be in the right place to get some honest work done.
