All you tweakers with your hands out... [Jun. 17th, 2005|06:22 pm]
Lindsey Kuper

In it's-a-small-world-after-all news, my roomie meterbridge is out of town at a wedding at which purebugbeauty is DJing. So, J-J, if the music's good, which I have no doubt it will be, you have Rosemary to thank. And zerbie's out of town visiting her mom, so holy apartment all to myself.

I haven't gone running for over two weeks now, and strangely enough, I'm losing weight. I guess it's that I'm back to the whole eat-meals-and-don't-eat-snacks thing, which sort of stopped being feasible when I was running so much, but now I find that I don't feel like eating so much between meals; now I seem able to sustain myself for hours and hours on Diet Coke and Kurt Vonnegut, Juicy Fruit gum and "Palmcorder Yajna". Yeah. My Mountain Goats bender continues. This is not an ordinary thing. High school, waiting for everyone to leave the house, then standing between the speakers in the living room, eyes closed, arms stretched out, soaking up "Porcelina" as loud as I could take it: that's what this is like. College, sneaking to Sebring-Lewis late at night to play "For the Win" on the piano, again and again, for hours: that's what this is like. I got my dad We Shall All Be Healed for Father's Day. (I think Sunset Tree is a better record, but, well, it strikes me as sort of an inappropriate gift.) The first song reminds me of the first song on one of my favorite albums, Anodyne by Uncle Tupelo -- not so much in the way it sounds, but in how it makes me feel. I know he'll like it.

Ha! See, my head was telling me so, too, but it's actually been a while since I heard the Tupelo, so I wasn't sure if I was comparing it to the actual song or just the version I was hearing in my head. It's always safe to go with the "feel" comparison. :p

Inappropriate doesn't begin to describe giving a parent The Sunset Tree.

Haven't had any spare cash. I've listened to some of it online.

I'm spinning All Hail West Texas a lot lately.

Yup. Especially when it's Father's Day and it's your dad.

I was hanging out with sarahtomic last night and she was telling me how she had All Hail West Texas and how a bunch of the vegan co-op kids were also fans and I'm just sitting there thinking, "I missed out on this much for this long?!"

I know, you told me that!

Argh, I still haven't mailed the CD. I suck. Maybe I'll just wait until I see them next weekend.

Dad sent me a nice thank-you email. In Spanish.

He also said he was looking forward to seeing us y Miguel y Jaime por el fin de semana proxima. I have to write him back and explain that it's just going to be you guys and not us guys this time.

Dad rocks.

Hold off for now. It might not even be us guys. Not sure yet.

I know that don't-run-lose-weight thing. I hurt my back last week and couldn't jog for about 6 days and dropped a bunch of weight...


Maybe this rest thing I've heard so much about is a good thing, after all???



(PS-I'll take you up on your offer to help me with the stylesheet! Thanks!)
