The Other Side of Mt. Heart Attack

Liars played a show in Lawrence, KS last night. I wasn’t there. All day I was home, in a haze, stuck in limbo between sleep and wakefulness. Having the power randomly go out at our house? Didn’t help matters. But the little man and I did make it to a friend’s birthday party, and hung out with people we adore. And Friday night we had dinner with other friends at Midori’s Floating World Cafe. Just look at this giant plate of vegan sushi. Yum. Today? I’m going to try to get things done. Bills, cleaning, errand-running, paperwork finishing. Yes, the glamorous life.

Five good things:

  • The Young @ Heart Chorus = happy making.
  • I’ve been hearing the buzz for a while now, and I’ve finally been swayed. I am on board the Robyn train. The video for Handle Me is what did it for me. Zentai suits? Check. Oversized teddy bear humping? Check. Gotta love crazy Swedish pop stars. Konichiwa bitches!
  • I enjoy the idea of a Drunken Spelling Bee at the 331 Club. Too bad I don’t qualify. Anyone attend?
  • My RSS feeds seem to be fixed now, but I’m not entirely relieved. The redirect is set up from the old to the new, but I still had to unsubscribe in NetNewsWire and resubscribe before it worked again. Hmmm. I’ve also set up a new feed with FeedBurner. Any feedback is welcome.
  • I’m a sucker for post-apocalyptic action flicks, so yeah, I plan to see Doomsday.
Be Your Own Pet

Bonus: Cupcake Saturday returns next weekend (on the 9th). Until then, read about the couple behind Letterbox, the place that hosts our weekly ritual.
Plus: I’d love to caucus on Tuesday night, but would need a babysitter. There should be onsite childcare, provided by folks ineligible to caucus…like responsible 17 year-olds or something.
And: Writers’ strike progress? I didn’t watch much teevee anyhow, and most of it I watched online. Seems like that’s where the sticking point is (with internet residuals). But I do miss my Heroes.

    Doomsday looks interesting. I plan on calling it Mad Max IV: Mad Maxine.
