a good mail day

read dan's lj entry about an old pimp he met on the damen bus yesterday here. no, seriously, read it.

i just ate a bowl of reese's puffs, a handful of jelly belly jelly beans and i am about to conquer the other half of this grapefruit. last night i made dinner again for myself the 'mates. we're talking a full past the brim pot full of pasta and i sauteed portabello mushrooms, spinach and added these and artichokes to premade garlic marinara.

yesterday was a super package day! i got my wrist cuff from charlie grassfire (a minor thread and a sheet music pin with the word "sing-ing" that i lusted over and then RECEIVED! if only it were always that easy! i got my order from polyvinyl for the 'the enemies ep' by headlights and The Association of Utopian Hologram Swallowers split 7". i haven't listened to the latter yet, but the former is splendid and has been playing over and over. it truly is great. the reason i was drawn to it was that in a few reviews it had said ex-maserati. i believe now that it was touring member tristan who reviews were calling a former member. anyways, the headlights ep is truly are amazing. you know i am picky with female vocals, but erin fein's vox reminds me elizabeth elmore on slow songs. read this review of the ep. i am very much looking forward to seeing them to see if it translates as well live! i'm intrigued that they are playing the pontiac cafe and plan to attend that as well as the subterranean show. i love that both of the venues a short bike or bus ride away!

Monday, August 29
Chicago, IL @ Pontiac Cafe
Headlights w/ Via Audio

Friday, Sep. 16
Chicago, IL @ Subterranean
Headlights w/ Mono, Bellini

the other great package i received was the make-out party magnets i had made by april byobuttons that stella in_spite_of_all designed. they are flippin' sweet! i think that i will be selling them for $2.00 (including postage) for a set of the three designs (an embracing boy/boy, girl/girl, and girl/boy).

last night i followed through and designed the template for my idea for the october sampler. it is a good feeling accomplishing something and i've been doing a lot of that lately. go leigh!

Current Mood: bouncy
Current Music: headlights - centuries

Re: magnets

surely! i will be taking photos of them. last night i was just so determined to finish the design for my october sampler contribution that i didn't get a chance to take photos of them. THEY ARE SO CUTE! omg, i just love stella's work and april made them look SO NICE as magnets! yeah, diver city house can have a few sets. hee. :)

re: dinner! next time i'm there for an extended weekend, i will SO come cook dinner. i actually really like cooking for large groups of people so next m-op maybe i will come over far earlier and cook a large dinner. i am loving being able to cook since we have a huge kitchen with COUNTER SPACE. hearts!

dear leigh,

i am forgoing grocery-purchasing to rent a car for 2 days to see jump little children tomorrow & friday (i have to write about their shows for plan b!). do you need a ride to the airport on saturday morning? because i can (and will) take you, if so, as i will have a sporty little kia or something and ample time on my hands (don't have to have the rental back in MKE until 5 on sat. afternoon). let me know!

also, awesome pgh restaurant i forgot the name of until now: ZEN GARDEN. oh so delicious.

love.

my flight is really quite early:

Flight 676
Depart Chicago Midway(MDW) at 08:15 AM and
arrive in Pittsburgh(PIT) at 10:50 AM

i was hoping to get to the airport by 7:00 AM so we would have to leave at like 6:30 to get to midway. yes, that would totally work. i wonder how i can get you keys to come let yourself in after the jump show? my spare keys are missing in action somewhere, so i'll have to get paul's. blargh!

i will ask natalia about it. much of what we love doing is EATING so i figure we'll go out to eat a bunch. i heart my natalia!

6:30 would be no problem. i can sleep anytime, and would rather drive you instead of having you worry about the subway.. unless the subway would be easier? i don't know. i also have no bloody idea how to get to midway. i feel like it might be a path littered with tolls, but as long as we get some quarters we should be good, yeah? hopefully it's not complicated, and then i can just hop right back on the freeway & kick it back to mke. i won't be drinking at the jump show so i don't have to worry about waking up four hours after i go to sleep with a crazy hangover. :)

yay for pittsburgh! and natalia! and eating!

suh-weet! i think, if you are game, i would love to do it. i will print out maps and whatnot. if i do take the L, i will have to leave my house at about 5 in order to assure i get there an hour ahead of time because i will have to take the blue line and transfer to ummm...i can't remember which line to get there (it's not a straight shoot on the blue line like o'hare). yarg! you are welcome to come back to the apartment to sleep more or hang with danelle and still get back to mke by 5pm. anyways, let me know, yo.

holy crap! that took forever and day to get to you! combined with the fact that it took forever and day for me to send it to you, that's a whole lotta time! so sorry about that, dear. i'll be much quicker, next time.

i'm really glad you liked the button. i try to save the really good ones for the folks i know will love them!
