aquatic, the life

"you know you're no work of art, still you manage to get to me..."

today my co-worker and i thwarted a shoplifting attempt. my hands always start shaking when i suspect someone of it. i hate hate hate hate feeling like that, but there's really nothing i can do about it. i was right today and that kid will not be coming back to my store.

when i got home, i ate dinner [from honolulu restaurant], asked why my packages from rocket racer: placed 5 jan 03 AND polyvinyl: placed 28 dec 03, have not arrived yet, and then proceeded to watch 10 entire episodes of the state here [thanks to michael tonydanza for the link]. my all-time fave episode, 'eating muppets' was still funny, but honestly, not as funny as i'd remembered it. ahh, how the mind plays tricks. ahh, how yr mom turns tricks.

peter called me at midnight and i haven't talked to that boy in ages, so we talked for a nice long while. it's always nice playing catch up. he told me something very exciting tonight, which will become public knowledge as soon as i know that he is for real. related, but still sort of random - tell me what you think of the inflatable men [mp3s on the website] in comment form.

btw, i am still curious as to who wrote "but you're the female version of me" a few entries ago --> if not terence, then who?

"it could've been noble, but it started out fast. they say that kind of thing will never last..."



honestly, there is nothing better than coming home to a package filled with the above polyvinyl goodness. i had NO idea that the cd-single was CLEAR on the outside. seriously, that is like the hottest way cd singles can come. i was just buying it 'cos i am a dork and try to be a completist when it comes to my favorite bands! on the polyvinyl site, they call this single, the 1955 single a cdep, but i think that's almost false advertising, since it's only two songs. anyhow, gush gush, the new rainer maria album, long knives drawn, is fucking brilliant. a lot of people are saying that they're scared to hear caithlin really SING, but honestly, she sounds just as good USING her vocal chords as she does when she abuses them screaming! this song gives me chills. anyhow, this totally made my night and now i don't need to leave the house. plans to finish evan's mixtape have yet again been overtaken by a new album, however. oops! tomorrow, before mpPA, i swear. as for now, i have a night of making out with music planned.

sha-sha-sha-shaw society/gurlees/whoever: check my shows list and tell me if you'd like to [AND CAN] make any of those road trips to faraway places to see r|m with OWEN [or any of the other weekend road trips i have scheduled].

everyone had better be at mpPA [they are OPENING for parker and lily @ the black cat] tomorrow night, thursday night. get there early, so you can buy me drinks. i'll probably need them in all honesty.
