aquatic, the life

"we wasted most of winter feeling that we should stay inside instead..."

the guild league - jet set...go! (cd-s)
the guild league - private transport
darren hanlon - hiccups (cdep)
lucksmiths, the - t-shirt weather (cdep)
lucksmiths, the - midweek midmorning (cd-s)
salteens, the - let go of your bad days!

as you can see, i received my order from candle records earlier in the day. i actually had a really nice post together all about it and lj had to go and eat it. bad lj, bad! this morning my mom woke me up at 8:30 in the morning, to watch my grandmother [who is here, btw!] while she went and picked up shadow from the vet's (she was spayed on monday)! anyways, after groggily waking up after very little sleep [i had a nice talk with jeremiah on the phone the night before], i come to find out that i really could have slept in until 9:00, as planned, since my mom couldn't pick shadow up until after 10:00am. way to go, mom! anyhow, i got to see shadow come into the house, with an elizabethean collar on and it was absolutely amazing. i burst out laughing, because she looked absolutely pathetic in it [poor little puppy]. anyways, she proceeded to RUN AROUND LIKE A CRAZY DOG and kept slipping on the hardwood floor. i so just typed hardwoof floor, which is really appropriate. anyhow, it was a sight. she has to wear the collar for 7-10 days. i can say right now that there is NO WAY this is going to be successful, as my parents spoil her ROTTEN! watching her in the yard is very similar to watching an ostrich stick its' head under the ground, it's totally surreal.

after shadow shennanigans, i went to mason, where i walked past the lake, where the geese were walking across it, instead of swimming. oh god. i wish i had my camera handy, but i'd left it at home. GAR! anyways, i met with my partner about this presentation that is due either thursday today or thursday next week. anyways, we worked things out and i headed home [listening to 'a hundred days off' which i quite like]. i took a nap on the couch and then came up here with the good intentions of starting my paper. my intentions were shot to hell when my mom told me i had packages and i listened to everything!

dear lucksmiths,

brantastic and i had a lengthy discussion this afternoon about how you quite possibly are the key to world peace. that whole "we are the world thing" from the 80's didn't really work, did it? but hand claps and singalongs and songs about holding hands and great word puns? what the world needs now is you. do something and quick.

love,

leigh + brandi

aquatic, the life

"my dreams are tied to you my girl but you know that by now..."

last night i had a dream that the sha-sha-sha-shaw society went on a crazy long road trip to see the prom. when we arrived in the town, it was in the middle of nowhere, yet this town was packed with people who were there to see the baseball game, that apparently the prom were playing before. i remember walking past people in the aisles, because i said i'd meet the girls down there. then the show started, so i just sat down in an empty seat and then i remember seeing shelly walk by me blurry-eyed with tears and i grabbed her arm and asked the ppl next to me to move down a seat. so she sat down and said that this show was nothing like she'd expected. and then we talked a bit more while they were playing [which is something i really DO NOT EVER DO] and the woman sitting to my left taps me and asks if we're going to talk for the entire show. anyways, i remember after the show trying to find james mendenhall and seeing him and not believing that who i saw was in fact james, because he looked all ghetto fabulous. i rounded up the sha-sha-sha-shaw society and we prepared to leave, but we walked past a multiple scaffold, and i asked a man if they still hanged people there and they said 'yes' and then my alarm clock woke me up. errr.

and now i'm listening to the guild league again in preparation for the paper that i MUST do today now that snow is covering northern virginia and maryland bits. wow, for a second there i got really excited because i thought i heard the kettle whistling and i was thinking [oh gosh, i can make hot chocolate], but then i realised it was a part of track 04. balham rise. btw, any lucksmiths fan who likes their entire body of work should realllllllly go purchase the guild league's stuff, because it's TALI from the lucksmiths, and his songs are oh so sweet. i am going to put the kettle on, but in the mean time...
