03 July 2005

filled with explosions and banjo music or at least a lot of yee hawing going on outside. What's up with you?
i'm debating on using flickr space to show doodles of my "metachat superhero trading card" doodles or becoming drunk according to the dictates of the jingoism around me

I'm drinking cheap wine (which is dee-licious, by the way) and listening to the kids outside fire off premature bottle rockets. I am intermittently playing with Ultra Fractal and bemoaning my complete lack of artistic talent. I am trying to decide whether I should shave my legs tonight, shave them in the morning, or just say "screw it" and wear pants tomorrow.

Oh, and Intervention is on A&E and it's the creepy video game addict episode so I'm set for the next hour.

I just got finished ripping the last of my CDs into iTunes. It was long and excruciating, but now that I have nothing to accomplish, I'm kind of bored.

Also, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong's tribute to Porgy and Bess is liable to cause a black hole of awesome right now.

should i ever figure out my torrent problems, we should set up seed times

invitapriore: A bit of honesty. I have never listened to the Porgy and Bess soundtrack although I am fairly sure I'd enjoy it. I have an album of the Broadway cast recording downstairs just sitting in storage. I really should dig it out.

I'm cleaning the house and blasting Ray Lamontagne.

Yeah, it's enjoyable. I only recently discovered it, on the recommendation of someone who knows much more about this stuff than I do, and I'm pretty glad.

I'm plumb exhausted. I wound up driving all over the place trying to find an old-fashioned charcoal grill, and of course, all that's available in my area are "propane and propane accessorries", overpriced, wheeless(!) merch and flimsy pieces of crap that would inspire anyone to weep with rage.

Thankfully, however, there are the internets. But the summer ritual of the Searing of the Harvest will have to wait until the post 4th of July sales.

Just back from the weekend trip to Toronto -- all the traffic leaving the cap from July 1st so relatively clear roads going the other way. Rental car garage closed so in a parking space to be picked up before 8am and returned on the way to work. Relaxing at home, putting off unpacking.

half the people i know have done the enviromental swap this weekend: major city to minor, country to town and visa versa, whether for weddings or running away for a break, and all before the bank holiday.

Greek themed evening. Smashed a plate for luck, drank retsina, feta cheese salad. Danced, had my photo taken through a bottle of ouzo. Drizzled honey over yogurt. Nothing to do with 07/04, but that's what I did and it was fantastic.
