it seems to be spring

how the fuck did i live 23 years on this planet without having heard of tegan and sara? i feel like i've been deprived of something important my whole life. i literally can't stop listening. most new music you listen to once or twice, and then you put it down for awhile lest you get sick of it. but i've had the albums "if it was you" and "so jealous" on repeat for the last FIVE DAYS and i'm still not sick of it.

in other music news, fiona is coming through on july 3rd... fuck if i'm going to miss that!

oh, and the yeah yeah yeahs show on tuesday was a fucking blast. it was a little out of hand for awhile there, but it seems like no one got hurt (ok, i got a little bruise on one arm) and everyone had fun. i left my camera in the car unfortunately (or fortunately, because with that crowd it might have "disappeared") so i don't have any pics. let it be said, though, that karen o is one of the best performers on the planet, and i have to know how she can scream for so long without losing her voice. maybe it's just a lot of practice. or maybe she's an alien. yes, that must be it.


wagh. i keep writing posts and then deleting them, for some unknown reason. the words just don't want to form right now. not much is going on, anyway, in the tangible universe. just a lot of cerebral activity this weekend. i think i need some zazen.


i AM the coolest.



i should be going to bed, but instead i'm blogging and having another handful of white chocolate chips ohhh man these are good. plus i don't have to get to class until 9:00 tomorrow. today my invert zoology class took a field trip to edmonds, where we hung out on the public docks in between all the rich people's boats, and laid down on the dock and stuck our heads over the edge so we could see the critters living underneath.

my favorite invertebrate phylum is echinodermata.

it was awesome to see all the little spineless critters hanging around... this starfish was one of the biggest we saw, but the tiny ones didn't photograph quite so well.

it's really hard to take an in-focus photo of things that are underwater.

other than field trips and such, things are going awesomely well right now. i think i'm going to boston in june, which i'm totally stoked about. after much deliberation, this afternoon i bought one of these (in silver) - it should be here at the end of the week - and a helmet to match. it comes "some assembly required" but after reading through the directions on the website it looked more like an hour's worth of work than a job for a licensed mechanic, so i decided to just go for it. i'm pretty excited - i've been wanting a scooter for a long time, and the price was reasonable.

anyway, now it is bedtime.

news flash.

tom delay is basically fucked. dick cheney is up to his elbows in this plame game. bush authorized the leak of classified information to judy miller. massachussetts passed legislation requiring (and providing for) all citizens to have health insurance. they're building a brand new abortion clinic on tribal lands in south dakota.


liek woah.

what the frack?

why did i just say frack?

i just finished up season 2 of BSG. um... what? what the frack do those cylons think they're doing? how will i survive the Galactica-free months to come? and will i actually start watching this show on fracking friday nights, when it's on? sigh.
