an assignment @ 09:22 pm

location: the library
mood: bookish
music: books on tape

I am making a mix CD of songs that reference books for a swap. Here is my playlist so far:

1. Wrapped up in Books by Belle and Sebastian
2. Song for Myla Goldberg by the Decemberists
3. Hirsute Potter by the Sour Grapes
4. Nancy Drew by Tuscadero
5. Books Written for Girls by Camera Obscura
6. Julie of the Wolves by Kaia
7. Open Book by Cake
8. Jean Paul Sartre by the Crabs
9. something by Harry and the Potters (currently: "We Save Ron's Life, part 8")
10. Mesopotamia by the B-52s (sort of a stretch, but it says "I should read a book.")

I didn't think I'd be able to think of so many, but I need some more. I expect each of you to think of at least one song that references books in some way.

Get to work.

+ Katy loaned me the first season of Veronica Mars and I'm pretty into it so far. But do you have any idea how many HIPAA violations she just committed?
+ I got an order for 6 pads from a woman who says that they make her look forward to her period.
+ This weekend, my mom and Katy and I are going to buy pumpkins from the people from Little People Big World.
+ I was the first person to get my copy of the new Lemony Snicket book from the library.
+Plans for my Christmas party are coming along swimmingly.

I hate writing cover letters.

I feel like I'm in school, procrastinating on the internet while writing a paper.

Tonight I discovered that my clever invention of nachos with French fries instead of chips has already been invented, when I ordered it at the Triple Nickel on Belmont. They called them Irish Nachos. The guacamole was nast.

I said to Katy, "Those people at the bar had burgers that looked pretty good. I think I'll get a gardenburger next time we come here." She said, "I don't think there's going to be a next time."

mood: calm calm
music: Japanese pop

It's been a very good day so far.

First I went to the dentist, and despite the two cavities and the lecture about smoking, my teeth are very clean and shiny now and I love it.

On the way to the dentist, I got a call from my crush. If only I had a scanner, I would attach a link to the ATC that I made that's about getting a call from your crush.

Then I mailed a large, glittery Valentine to Greig Means.

Then I went to the Knittn Kitten and Touchstone Coffeehouse with Deb and Gillian. We did mind puzzles.

Then I came home to find: an invitation to Theresa's scholarship dinner and TWO packages! One is a dance mix CD from a girl in Japan and the other is a bag of goodies and a CD from a girl in Canada who already made me a CD for a swap, but then I wrote her a letter thanking her, so she made me another CD!

Also, I've been reading "Liquor" by Poppy Z Brite, which is good, although completely gay-sex-free. And it's even about a man-couple! Where's the Poppy Z Brite I loved in high school?

I'm listening to the Japanese dance music right now. Gillian and Theresa are turning green with envy.

mark your calendars @ 11:19 pm

mood: excited excited

I am thinking that my Christmas party will be on December 16th. This is a Saturday. I'm going to send an evite. If you don't think I have your email address and want to come, you should give it to me. Also if you want to come to my spin-the-bottle party, which I'm thinking will be mid-October? The 7th or the 14th? Is someone else having a party one of those nights? I have to consult with Patrick before I decide for sure, but that's my tentative plan.

Washington @ 10:21 am

location: home
mood: calm calm
music: the Crabs

This weekend I went to 6 places in the state of Washington. They were:

1. Seattle to see my friend Cait, which was short but awesome. I saw her super-cute apartment, which does not really have a bathroom door, then we went to brunch at a fancy restaurant. I had pancakes.

2. Spanaway to visit my nephews and sister-in-law. Caleb (age 3.5) likes to start all of his sentences with "because," which is cute, but sort of confusing. He doesn't really understand cause-and-effect. Bryce (age 1.5) seemed afraid of me, and kept waving at my car and saying "bye!" I think it was a hint. I also held the new kitten, Casey, who I wanted to hate because she was the instant replacement for Bella, but who can hate a kitten? She was so sweet and tiny. Caleb said, "A car ran over Bella. Was it your car?" I said, "It certainly was not my car!"

3. The Tacoma Mall, where I purchased a totally sweet pair of pants that are dry-clean-only. I'm wearing them right now.

4. Also in Tacoma, I went to a slumber party at my former co-worker Erin's house, which was fun. She made a Dutch Baby for breakfast, which was very exciting, and I can't wait to go to Violet's and recreate the experience. We also walked on the water's edge and Kimber found a teeny dead crab. I wanted him to take it home and feed it to his cats, but he declined.

(I know that both 3 and 4 took place in Tacoma, but on opposite sides of town. Also, they were totally different experiences, so I'm counting them separately.)

5. Olympia, where Gillian and I toured Robbe's rad house. He has so many plans for the yard and painting and turning the attic into an awesome bedroom.

6. The Vancouver Mall, where I purchased 2 more pairs of pants and 2 shirts. I was a shopaholic. Maybe I'll wear one of my new shirts with my new pants to work today, since I sure can't wear the Cheeto-covered white tank top I'm wearing now.

After I returned to my home state, I watched the series finale of Six Feet Under with Alison and Staci and I almost started crying.
