jitterbug: (art - flying man)
randomly stumbled upon days with my father and cried for an hour.
jitterbug: (sheeep)
ian is sleeping with huxley at his feet. eloise is watching baby einstein's neighborhood animals. i'm about to make some coffee. perhaps we'll walk to panantico and pick up a few bagels.

the only words out of elly's mouth lately are -- "dooda" [this refers to the process of someone lifting her up so that she could touch a piece of artwork on the wall] and "no!" everything is no. no no no. if she wasn't cute, i'd put her up for adoption.

mmmmm, pasta sauce.

the yarn from the purewool coop is here.

the green/mauve/whitish one will soon become a longies/hat set.

later today eloise is getting dropped off at my parent's house. i have a 3:30 haircut appointment in mothereffin'williamsburg. while i'm somewhat ashamed to admit me that i go to the depth of hipster hell to cut my hair, lilypad is the only salon i know of that is affordable, consistent, and glam-free.

kristina's surprise birthday party is tonight. it appears she has no clue of what's coming. i'd probably loose my shit if anyone ever did this to me, kristina however, she will love it. when ian and i were in providence, we browsed through a seconds and oversells book store. it was there that i saw thrift store paintings and said to ian, "we have to get this for kristina!" we didn't, but once this party thing started taking shape, i kept thinking back and wishing i bought the book. i looked for it on-line and couldn't find a single new copy under $50. weeks after we came back, i called the store in providence to see if they still had it in stock. they did and i had it mailed to me for $28, shipping included. it's a perfect present for k.

in other random bits of info -- ian set up an an etsy shop. i think he's a brilliant artist but this is like selling umbrellas to a fish. actually that's a really bad analogy. it's nothing like that. i can't think of a better one though. it's like selling a pair of socks to a centipede? i've been try to convince him to have a neighborhood art"gallery" opening in our apartment.

speaking of our apartment, we got our lease renewal. first and foremost, they're raising our rent 6%. we are a rent controlled apartment in a coop building. the most they can raise us is 4.25%. i'll call them on monday, but we are done here regardless. we need to move out of this crazy building [and we need a second bedroom]. out by february 1st.

finally, chinese democracy. it's so over the top i can't help but like it. most entertaining review* -- reviewing chinese democracy is like reviewing a unicorn

*although i disagree with the final grade and would lower it down to a B.

jitterbug: (good lost)
accidentally, we walked 4 miles away from pier 11 where the ferry was leaving from and thus saved $46 between the 2 of us by catching a different ferry to liberty state park then sneaking onto the "official" one on our way back. somewhere along our 4 mile walk, my back gave out.

we got to the festival right around the time andrew bird's set started. and it was incredible. as much as i enjoy his studio albums, the live show far exceeds them. beautiful.

radiohead was everything i expected and more. despite debating on selling my body/soul for a sweatshirt, back pain spasms, and standing quite a distance from the stage, the 2 hour set flew by too quick. i desperately wanted to hear "just" and was shocked happy when they played it during the encore. ahhhhhhhhhhh!

words tend to fail me when it comes to describing sound, so i digress.
