Enduring philosophies and favorite quotes

Where do you want to go? was his response. I don’t know, Alice answered. Then, said the cat, it doesn’t matter.


Playlist pieces

so tonight, when i left here, all i said was “goodbye” and thats alright. no “i’ll see you later”. i’ve been trying my whole life.
And if its an eye for an eye, why cant i get this right? i’m too slow to go fast, i’m too nervous to do that. so i run, run away.. why should i….


I lay in an open fire…
watch me go back out before the storm

Anonymous seed paper

slated in consumed at 4:39 pm

For Green Week at work, they gave us nicely printed cards on seed paper (paper with seeds embedded in it) that we’re encouraged to plant at home. But no indication as to what kind of plants will grow out of these seeds. My conscience says “Yay! Plant seeds! Green is good!” My sense says, “I don’t want random and strange weeds or plant-strangling/man-eating shrubs at my house!”

Boo iTunes, yay The Weepies

slated in consumed at 10:21 pm

New Weepies album Hideaway arrived! Looking forward to listening to it.

It’s weird getting CDs (even cool autographed album covers), because I’m just going to burn it to my computer so that I can actually listen to it and access it anytime/put it on my mp3 player, etc..

Get Hideaway

*update: This really is an adorable (puppy huggable cute) album.
btw, Joshua Radin, Mandy Moore, Schuyler Fisk are in the credits. So is “Theo, who was closely involved with every aspect of this recording, from start to finish.”

The Caps vs. Flyers game

slated in consumed at 7:20 pm

Went to my first hocky game ever..
I don’t think I’ve ever watched a serious chunk of hockey even on TV before.

My general expectations of impressions going in were all on base — it’s a pretty engaging, well-paced, high-contact game at which I cringe, gasp, and frequently want to scold the big men for being mean to each other.

Ingrid Michaelson at Lisner

slated in consumed at 10:05 am

Saw Ingrid Michaelson in concert the other day. Have to say, she comes across much better live than she does on her album tracks. On stage she has lots of personality, she’s very funny and friendly, and much more energy comes through her voice and the instruments/general sound than was captured in the album production. I like her songs a whole lot more now than before the concert.

A rosé by another name is not the same rosé

a: What’s the difference between these two rosés?

Waiter: Well, they’re both rosés so they’re going to be really similar.

a: ….

Waiter: One comes in a half bottle, the other one comes in a full bottle (as was clearly marked on the menu). But they’re both pretty much the same wine.

Xobni : MS Outlook inbox control, search, happiness

slated in consumed at 5:27 pm

Playing with Xobni for the first time.

A little mesmerized… Can’t give a real review yet, but I will say it is very fast, fluid, and pretty!

Much appreciation to John for the invite. I did get a direct invite from Xobni shortly thereafter, but still — thank you for the Xobni invite, John!

*update: okay, a couple of issues:

  • I should be able to keep several “tabs” open to jump back and forth between. Instead, the tabs seem to operate on breadcrumb hierarchy, in which you can go back/up, but then can’t go forward/down anymore because going back/up removes everything in front/below.
  • I should probably be able to pop-out search results, and/or have multiple and customizable columns to better organize my search results. That being said, search is fast. Happily so.

The Weepies - Hideaway (new album)
Preordered The Weepies’

the whole point of a raincoat

why does J.Crew hate hoods?

J.Crew Hoodless Raincoat

Dear J.Crew,
you know (to the sadness of my wallet) that I love you.. but what the HECK is the point of a raincoat withOUT a hood!?

It doesn’t even make sense!

Pillage the Village

Speaking of things that are grey rather than pure "good"....

slated in consumed at 9:14 pm

There’s a game on Kongregate called Pillage the Village.

I’m a bit disconcerted by how addicting it apparently is to meanly murder and steal from cheeky and spunky little villagers. And it probably doesn’t say the best of things about me that I am frustrated about being unable to make practical use of the fires and wooden posts propped about the scene…
