So, my new car is amazing. This is the first new car of my lifetime and I think it's wonderful. I've become quite attached to my XM radio. I don't know what I'm going to do at the end of my 3 month trial period. Do I give it up and listen to my ipod? do I subscribe. *le sigh*

life is just so difficult. :)

Ooo Secret Vespers did a tribute to A Softer World

nifty o!
*I guess really it's OUR house*

ahh I love webcomics.

I've also forgotten to mention 55 word stories from bird and moon

this one is a guest story and it's still great.

Ashes to Ashes

I watched the flames hungrily devour the structure, walls collapsing in helplessness, beams disintegrating, furnishings screaming their protest. Charred ruins, embers, then ashes. The coldness of reduction. Life incinerated to nothingness.

I do not know why I set fire to my house. To forget the past, maybe. But I did not. And I have not.

I had a list yesterday and I have completely forgotten what was on it. I'm sure there were some amazing things running through my brain, but alas I let them slip away.

we needed a break from wednesdays didn't we.

~books I've read recently~
recently as in the last couple of days. WEE!
>I was told there'd be cake - Sloane Crosley
>Still life with chickens - Catherine Goldhammer
>Grimms' Fairy Tales - Grimm Brothers
deeply disturbing tales let me tell you. I read of more violence in those tales than I've watched on TV in a month of Sundays. Dismemberment, murder, cannibalism, disfigurement, death, destruction, mayhem... it's all in there.

~recent additions to my song collection~
>One of those days - Joshua Radin
>Sweet about me - Gabriella Cilmi
>Angels on the moon - Thriving Ivory

~recent web comic discovery~
>Secret Vespers
>latest bunny favorite Whailing

A co-worker just brought in her nieces collection of Littlest Pet Shop pets. they are so completely adorable that I wish I were 9 and could collect them without feeling as though I had a dirty secret. For some reason I'm attracted to cute, tiny (inanimate) things. like these espresso cups. I've started a collection of espresso cups. I can get away with that without looking like a freak. heh.

~books I need to finish reading~
>Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach
>Children of Hurin by Tolkien
>Overcoat by Nikolai Gogol

have you ever had someone in your life who has an impact on you despite them being a complete asshole?


I have a few. They complicate my life to the inth degree and make me wish I could just punch them in the face. I am not very good at expressing my feeling via the webbernets. especially when they are ones of pure unadulterated rage and I can't be angry with a relatively faceless individual. Faceless because even though we're friends it's only via the internet and therefore not really "real".


n-e-who. happiness all 'round.

that is my brand new baby complete with XM radio, which I am quickly becoming addicted to. I find myself sitting in the car, after I've arrived at my destination, just listening until the end of the current song. XM is amazing.

This year started off rather crappy, but is well on it's way to being quite brilliant. I am excited about all that is to come.

>I got to ride in a police car yesterday.
I'd say I used my many secret skills to land this deliciousness, but it was just a simple ride from my job to my car. Nothing really "special" about it. heh.
>XM has an indie station
>I have a new thermostat in my house which means the heat actually works

~New favorite songs~
>Wicked Way by Ben Taylor check it out on songza
>Cape Canaveral By Conor Oberst
>Come Around by Rhett Miller
>Mr. Rock & Roll by Amy MacDonald
>Wie Weit by Apocalyptica

I was trying to remember a company that apparently sells uber-cool clothes and I finally asked my co-worker today.

It's called H&M - unfortunately you can only shop online at various UK locations.

n-e-who, that is all for today.

^thank you Natalie Dee
having made it through 2 days of over excitement I'm still not coming down off the high. I simply cannot wait for my new car to arrive and as waiting has never really been my specialty I want the car NOW! Go figure that the 'rents do you a favor, buy you a car -- and then take an entire flippin' month to deliver it to your doorstep.

What the heck!

~recent discoveries~
>Disk Grunt doodles
>he also sells his stuff on Etsy
>Isabel's Rose
>especially this one which seems to me to be the perfect gift for Valentines day.

~resolutions I didn't make~

>lose weight
>give up coffee
>save money
>world peace

I did however watch the fire works downtown - stay up late - check out time square for the dropping of the ball... and I also got to see The Ting Tings in concert. "that's not my name"

The new year isn't so bad after all. I thought it was going to be horrid after my car took a dive, but it's looking up from here.

'tis a happy day for me. I am a bundle of nerves, bouncing off the walls, deliriously happy gal today. While I did not get the EXACT car of my dreams. I am the proud owner of a 2008 Chevy Cobalt and I am thrilled. THRILLED!

~plus points for car~

>4 door
>ipod adapter
>free three month trial of XM radio WOO!
>the price -- blissfully happy about that as well
>it's silver. I'll be styling.
