3:00 AM: CD Mambo

i feel like my cds have been sneaking behind the high school to make out in between classes. surfing around, i discovered that nick cave had dated p.j. harvey for a while, and that when they'd broken up he'd written the boatman's call. at the same time, p.j. had written to bring you my love, which some people say shows a very strong nick cave influence. i have both those albums! i hadn't realized they were connected, yet both are among my favorites. to bring you my love especially, because i remember trent reznor mentioned once that it was his favorite album for a while. and of course i have all his stuff. ok, cds, break it up!

2:48 AM: I Love Bookz

sometimes things get a little out of control. first one thing and then another happens, and suddenly you have all these books sitting around your room that you have half-baked intentions to read, or finish reading:

The Concubine's Tattoo by Laura Joh Rowland
The Edible Woman by Margaret Atwood
London's Perfect Scoundrel by Suzanne Enoch
The Dream of the Red Chambers Volume One: The Story of the Stone by Cao Xueqin
The Chan's Great Continent by Jonathan D. Spence
Wobegon Boy by Garrison Keillor
Guns, Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond (i got most of the way through though, mmkay?!)

and, most important:

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

argh! too much obligation!

2:29 AM: P.S.

p.s. i am back from illinois. the information collected there was inconclusive, but, so far...

midwesterners seem grim, chicago seems grim because it is all flat, californians dress rumpled and sexy, chicagoans dress well-groomed and slightly conservative-- it looks hot until you realize that they are probably not comparable to well-groomed and slightly conservative angelenos, and i really really like l.a.
