Spring nights: so pleasant and swoony, you make everything more than bearable, one might say, quite wonderful.

remembered songs.

Sunday, April 26, 2009

I woke up this morning with this song in my head. It stayed there all afternoon and it was driving me nuts and I wanted to know what it was. I had heard it only in Maggie's car and I didn't want to bug her so I kept guessing what it was through internet searches and some serious memory searching and it was like finding a needle in a haystack. So I called her and she instantly knew what it was and told me and I have been listening to it non stop for an hour now and I feel so satisfied, I sing to it and everything. Maggie has been my low fi shazam. But god isn't it so satisfying when you have a song in your head and you don't know what it is and when you find out what it is?

In other Ellen news I got a hair trim today and during the hair cut I let out some sighs (they weren't rude I swear) because I was just tired and honestly, it was kind of hard to talk to the hairdresser because she was ESL and she was only half listening and understanding me. She told me that I shouldn't be sighing because I am so young and I shouldn't be so tired and then later asked me if I go to a temple or have a religion. I said no and she said, well maybe you should so that my soul would be at peace. I said that my soul was already at peace.

I always kind of dread going to a hairdresser because I have to make conversation. Somehow thought it kind of always ends up being a funny conversation (at least to me), one time this 17 year old high school girl was cutting my hair and we were just talking about the ins and outs of what it's like to be a hairdresser. And I asked her if people come in with greasy hair, and she's like yeah, and I honestly don't know what compelled me to say this, maybe it was because I felt like she was being pretty open and genuine with me (ha), but I said, "Do you secretly judge them?" and it was insanely awkward after that and she kind of let out this weird laugh and looked at her middle-aged coworker and was like, "Uh did you hear that?"

Ah god! my 14 year old/21 year old self is pretty won over by this and can't wait to see it.

Another week of April:

Leftovers of Maggie's project:

A really cheap Chinese restaurant in Chinatown. I had the szechuan halibut over rice, it was very bony but 5 dollars and huge.

printing (finally):

I made this soup and had a really simple baguette sandwich with it, just ham, butter, and brie. It made me pretty happy. French people totally knows what's up with food.

And in spirit of 420:

Oh mom.

lots of thing to do and say.

Another week of April:

A girl with a nice bag with nice type and nice sentences:

A girl who makes hustlin' sound not hustlin (in a good way):

Lykke Li @ NTBR Part 4 - "Hustlin'" from Drew Innis on Vimeo.

And I'm a girl who's craving really good fried chicken.

April so far:

Spring makes you feel so new and less angry at everything and swoony.

And slightly cheesy as well.

A really satisfying feeling:
When you lost a sneeze, and regained it 5 seconds later. Or when you know when a sneeze is coming and and you feel and define every moment leading up to and ending in it.
