i had the urge to listen to bjork's 'debut' tonight and it was such a good thing ... i realized that this is one of the most influential albums of my life and i am so grateful for that (i hadn't listened to it in a long time, it was a nice homecoming) 

it's a genius album and i think it's crucial to my general well being (or my identity or something) that when i was 13 (14 maybe... like late freshman, early sophomore year) ... a young woman ... i listened to it over and over and over again ... i know all the words to every song

it was difficult to pick one song to include in this post (i sincerely encourage you, dear reader, to lie on your bed and listen to the entire album) ... but this beautiful masterpiece won out (and this is a great video for it- look at that yellow dress! 90s glamour! (i srsly love it, not joking) and her face! and bare feet! heart heart heart)

also- i don't think i will ever be satisfied until i find my venus as a boy  (oh bjork, the way you roll an egg over your face! wow, this video is good ... i never saw it back in the day b/c there wasn't internet yet ... those sparkles at the end!)

and i lied, said i'd pick one song, but i've already posted two and here's one more, i can't not include it ... it takes courage to enjoy it, big time sensuality ... (my heart still reaching out in anticipation, at 13, at 33) ... (and wow, another incredible video)

a few things:

i just found out about dark shadows tonight and i can't believe it, i'm so excited... michelle fucking pfeiffer, i love her... wish i could go see it with certain people that i miss and love

when i googled dark shadows just now i accidentally googled dark angels and i ended up watching this

tonight i watched the season finale of parks and rec and it was fantastic (i was a little concerned with how heavy-handed ron was being but then when he said "i've had 15 whiskeys tonight" or something like that it made it all ok)... we couldn't believe the news about the nbc cancellations, but maybe it's for the best, things don't stay good forever... these shows will go out with a bang

i really really enjoyed the last 30rock, the queen of jordan one, it was pretty brilliant

i really am happy with my haircut and this new stylist i found... she complemented my hair color and i was like "even with all the greys?" and she was like, "that's what i meant, it's coming in nicely"... i love her

amy poehler for president!

the real president openly supports gay marriage, yay! (seriously- yay!)

the thing about having no curtains- besides feeling weird about going into the kitchen in my underwear- is that, when i'm taking pictures of myself in my living room, people walking by could totally see me

this saturday i will pick up my new (old) bike, i'm really happy about that

tgif tomorrow, guys!

i really kinda do think this is a good picture of me

the upcoming weekend holds for me: gnocchi, hanging out at my friend's house who lives in the country and has a goat, a party, productivity, a "new" bike, A PET EXPO, late night productivity, an annual meeting, PERFECT WEATHER, watering plants and feeding fish- and definitely seems to be calling for a sunday matinee of dark shadows

(shoot, i just realized it's not quite the weekend yet)

peace and love,

ps- i have a friend who is moving to vermont and selling all her shit and i just bought the most darling blonde double-decker end table from her

pps- i have fish now, it's a long story, but they are pretty awesome, somehow totally worth having another thing to take care of
got a good haircut today, and it's wicked good for a half-pony

i'm really glad nick offerman reminded me that i am beautiful and to stop looking in the mirror b/c i was picking at my face a little today and i have a red spot on my chin and i've been breaking out a lot lately and i might be feeling kinda bad about myself but i'm not... i have my outfit all picked out for tomorrow and it's really cute... ok, to bed!
