Extracting Sunbeams Out Of Cucumbers

The windows are open. It’s been weird hearing birdsong and barking dogs again (and bickering neighbors). I love airing the house out but we seem to have skipped through early Spring and taken a nosedive right into Summer. 80+ degrees? Insanity! The last couple of days the little man and I were outside in t-shirts, shorts and sandals. It was wonderful. The downside? We’ve both been besieged by seasonal allergies. He was so miserable yesterday that he crawled into bed for an extended nap. The boy isn’t a napper. Unless he feels like crap. Tomorrow we’re supposed to snap back into more seasonable wet and windy weather. I hope that means the allergies are put on hold as well.
On the random tip:

  • Arcade Fire Cancel Rest of Euro Tour” - Win Butler needs to rest up and get well before the Chicago show(s) in May.
  • I vaguely recall dreaming about an imaginary plant that needed watering. What the heck does that mean?
  • Earlier last night, when I was standing in the kitchen making dinner and washing dishes, I was delighted to hear an acquaintance on In the Loop’s Are You Your Job? episode.
Revans and Marty

Bonus: I posted a photo the other day of a sound board. This prompted a contact to link to info about Pixar’s upcoming short film, Lifted, which was inspired by similar equipment. Neat.
Plus: As predicted, I was able to find the Wayne Coyne (aka the sexiest man alive) Tonight Show clip on YouTube, but watching it reminded me why I dislike broadcast television. It was so very brief. Thankfully there was an extended behind-the-scenes version up as well, for those of us who, uh, rock alternatively.
And: The Ministry of Unkown Science’s Kung Fu Fuck You. Genius.

    It was bizarre and hot this morning here in Chicago, then I swear to God, it dropped about 15 degrees on my lunch break. Thankfully, I work with all post-menopausal women, so I have several extra layers just hanging out around the office to throw on.

    Arcade Fire better beef up before Chicago. That’s alls I’m sayin’.

  2. stubhub.comHeehee. And now it’s supposed to freaking snow here on Monday. So 80+ degrees one Monday, winter wonderland the following. Sigh.

    And I’m with you on the Arcade Fire tip. Though if it all falls apart, I’ll still come down to Chicago, dammit. Also? I don’t think of myself as a greedy person - but I could have purchased two extra tickets, and then sold them. They’re going for astronomical prices around the web. The most ridiculous? $975!
