I had my first school-related dream since we left for vacation last night. There was a little bit of everything: conferences with parents, insolent behavior, grade haggling. I wonder what brought it on?

I wore cute shoes tonight but now my feet are paying the price. We tried to go to the opening of the new, very un-Athens club but the line was packed with weird goth-looking kids and middle aged men in linen pants so we junked it.
So much for Friday night...

Definitely not ready for kids
Big Gray and I went to see the new Harry Potter this afternoon and it was all I could do to not kick the backs of those kids' chairs and tell them to shut the hell up.

Bunnies are on the loose again, and reciprocity failure has pictures now!

That is the name of my favorite ViS song, performed expertly by the band themselves last night at the 40 Watt. In a few I'll have pictures on my fotolog for you to see. They also do an unbelievable cover of You Got Lucky with PowerKompany rocking the twangy organ melody on her viola and DansLaw nailing those Tom Petty vocals. I sat a the bar drinking Tom Collins and watching 8trakgorilla fall head over heels in love with Ms. Comrade. Later he bought us all drinks and the deal was sealed, at least for me. That, and every time she got up to go to the bathroom he leaned in to tell me how awesome she is. "I can't stop thinking about her," he says and I swoon because she's my best friend and deserves it. By the end of the night I think they were holding hands.

Beautiful losers
Is Famous Blue Raincoat the saddest song ever written? The sky outside got suddenly dark as the first slow strums of the song began and as if on cue so did the tears.

I think it's a Pavlovian response.

Does anyone remember the show "Today's Special?" The one with the display dummy that comes to life and they dance around. I think there was a mouse or something, too.

It's summertime and I'm all gimlets and Pimm's Cups. Today's Special: wake up 11:30. Blog. That is as far as I've gotten so far.

Look, He Checks Up On Me
After a perfect weekend in Seaside, FL, I was not thrilled to realize I caught my mother's cold. I rarely get sick; so, even colds have the ability to make my whole world collapse.

I was expecting a visit this evening from the new man in my life. Of course, I had hoped he would bring soup, kleenex, or anything thoughtful--but never expected it. He bypassed those pedestrian items and brought lasagna with fresh vegetables, insisting that I use them in a salad to get healthy! Not only was it vegan (doesn't really matter to me), it was also homeade! Yum's the word! Then we watched VH1's Most Metal Moments. The Norway death metal scene...fascinating. The benefits of dating someone within your town never stop astounding me.

Undeniable proof
Everyone was always a little skeptical when I told them that my friend JK went to school with someone named this, but now you see the truth!

A letter to Gus Van Zant and other movie marathon related items
Dear Gus,
You may no longer rest on your Good Will Hunting laurels, even if Ms. Comrade does consider it the best movie of all time. Elephant was not only boring, but contrived. I admire your efforts and even the concept, but I want my money and my two hours back.

Dear Ryan Gosling,
After suffering through Murder by Numbers on HBO I thought I could never care for you, but after watching The Believer last night I have changed my mind.

Dear Johnny Knoxville,
I want my name tatooed on your ass.

Tomorrow marks the end of my first week of summer vacation. 8 more to go and I'm already bored.

My friend SS is moving tomorrow. WTF? I think I need to get out of town for a few days as a result.

Colonial House...what's up?
This weekend Big Gray is off to D and M's wedding in Raleigh. Attending will also be our friend S from NYC. S is maybe the happiest, coolest guy I know. He uses the phrase "what's up?" in ways I find hilarious. If he has a meal he likes its "Black beans and rice...what's up?"
Hears a song he likes "Big Star...what's up?"
It's a sign of endearment and I love it. Because of Chaz's emergency surgery this week I'm unable to make the trip up there. Anyway, congrats D and eM!

I watched Colonial House again today. What's up?
