On and on and on and on

My subject line is from "don't stop believing'" cuz we saw Journey last night, with Foreigner and Night Ranger. If you're my Facebook friend, there's a picture. Jeff made it his profile pic. We say (maybe just I say, come to think of it), that we're partying like it's 1991. Sometimes it's like the 80s never ended. (yeah, right. Tell that to Jani Lane).

I keep reading lists of "ages that are too old" for certain things. I can't comment, as right now I am craving black fur boots a la Snooki from Jersey Shore. However, I plan to rock mine with skinny jeans & a hoodie, not a minidress or shorts. Totally mature, as we said in the 80s.

trolling arund online on day two of a three-day weekend which kinda feels like four, cuz i counted last night, and i stayed up really late.

trolling online and finding references to clueless and the craft, i wish that i wasn't so addicted to reality TV that somehow my DVR is full during the summer lull.

Trace's List of Guilty Pleasure Movies Not Counting the Aforementioned (cuz, duh, squared)

  1. Cruel Intentions
  2. Marie Antoinette
  3. Crazy/Beautiful
  4. Mad Love
  5. Almost Famous
  6. Uptown Girls
  7. Material Girls
  8. Lost in Translation
  9. Thirteen
  10. Muriel's Wedding

Disclaimer: I know a few are great movies by everyone's standards, and that it's a bit sacreligious to include them on this list. however, this is my blog. also, again, i don't know if these are recs, per se, b/c while i love my taste, maybe twelve-year-old-girl-circa-seveneightnineties (tm jacob twop xoxo) is not for everyone!!

this weather is not at all good for my hair

I re-discovered this blog again, inspired by Francesca Lia Block (but isn't everything?)

She encouraged writers to get their names "out there", and also, to...write. Which I don't do enough of these for the daily Facebook sharing about what I'm eating or watching.

She was at Cambridge Public Library yesterday. The husband came w/me cuz he's a sweetie.

The Teen Room librarian introduced her, and she got choked up talking about how much the book meant to her, and I totally understood.

FLB is really pretty and so thin (in the pic we took I am wearing this voluminous white top & I look enormous.) She wanted to read from Frenzy but she didn't have a copy of the book with her, and an audience member offered up her Kindle, and FLB needed help working it at first. so cute!

She answered about a million questions, and we got to stand in line and get something signed. I brought Dangerous Angels, b/c it's the quintessential FLB. i was regretting not listening to the husband and bringing Frenzy because she would've held *my* book & read from it! He went downstairs for a bit but then came back up b/c he was thinking I might have liked a picture.

I told her that my favorite book of hers was Girl Goddess #9 but that I didn't have a copy because I keep buying it and giving it away, that my girlfriends will say something, & I'll be like, "you have to read this!" she said that was nice.

but I am a dork. I'm like, "there's a lot in there that women need to" um, at least I wasn't like "omg I love you!" like I did w/Tori Amos,

Happy New Year

I'm not sure this is the best time for me to resume this blog, as, save for a walk to Dunkin' Donuts (where coffee has gone up to $2.22...that's double the cents, people! Not cool!) I have basically been in this house for forty-eight hours.I've watched two movies, Kids Are All Right & Date Night, drank half a bottle of Veuve Cliquot and probably around two glasses of Barefoot Chardonnay, and watched Snooki drop five feet in a glass ball on New Year's Eve.My biggest accomplishment has been straightening out my shoes.

back in the atmosphere

yesterday i watched this movie delirious and steve buscemi was in it, and this dude that i saw play kurt cobain once, and maybe he was on dawson's creek, and the chick looked so familiar, so i watched the credits cuz i didn't have time to go on IMDB and really, who needs those kinds of questions tormenting them at three in the morning?

turns out it was alison lohman who was in white oleander which is a great movie, and also this show from like ten years ago called pasadena which never came out on DVD, to my dismay.

fuzzy pink blanket

home sick today and boy-child is not at all happy, what w/having Mom harshing on winter break!

i'm a complete & total geek. not only did i buy a farscape comic (it was for the husband i *swear*) but this morning i'm looking for the toaster (said husband is a minimalist & often hides appliances on me) & i'm like, "frakking toaster..."

which is a battlestar galactica reference.

i should get out more.

platinum lightning

walking in the suburbs is very awkward. it's not like the city where there's like, a throng of people all spilling amoeba-like onto the pavement (in a less gory way, obviously). there will inevitably be a person who pretty much matches your stride and speed, and you'll kind of have this really slow uncomfortable foot race in which you're passing and saying "excuse me" a lot. unless you're me, and you march to your own drummer, in which case you end up in the gutter and your shoes are much worse for the wear.
