I'm leavin' on a jet plane

Weekend was great, though I'll dish more on that later.

Inspired by the great harperwilla (and because I couldn't comment to her post), here are my lists of five things I'd want on a desert island, should I be stranded. I want to hear yours!


Liz Phair - whitechocolatespaceegg
Bare Naked Ladies - Gordon (though Stunt would be acceptable, too)
Poe - Haunted
Depeche Mode - Violator (though earlier ones would be good too)
Moulin Rouge Soundtrack


Sharon Shinn's Archangel series
C. S. Friedmann - In conquest born (though Coldfire series is lovely)
Piers Anthony - On a Pale Horse
Teresa Edgerton - Chronicles of Celydonn trilogy
Helen Fielding - Bridget Jones's Diary


The Princess Bride
The Matrix
Pretty Woman (must have some lighthearted romance on desert island)

Luxury items:
(assuming rain gear, fire starter, sharp intruments included in desert island package...)

TV with DVD player to watch above movies
Subscription to Scientific American
Smooshie the teddy bear
My lounge chair and umbrella
many loads of pens and paper
  • Current Mood

Weekend Update


Packed up from work early, yet later than I planned, and gathered zen_raven and RW to head out to the Tweeter Center to see the Barenaked Ladies in concert.
We got absolutely soaked walking from the car to the amphitheater, but by the time the guys were on stage, we didn't care at all. Plus, we'd found a good use for the break between the opening band and the headliner: it gives you time to buy concert shirts (with the amazing property of being expensive, but dry) and do the change-in-front-of-everyone dance.

BNL was, as always, absolutely amazing. I wish I could remember all of the songs they did, but the highlight of the concert is always their impromptu songs. They did an off-the-cuff rap deal, and made a version of the chicken dance that is actually good. I also have a new boyfriend: Ed Roberston, who you can see in the green here. He will be mine, oh yes, he will be mine.

(thinking back on it, they didn't play Yoko Ono, but the show was so good I didn't notice it.)

(no subject)

I must respectfully disagree with spooble and say that I do not think Warheads Sour Ooze Chews are the sour-est things out there.

I prefer the regular warheads candies for sour-power.

Oh, and spoobs, I found some warheads sour rips that will hopefully be heading your way, as soon as I find the motivation to write your address on this envelope and get to the post office. It'll happen sometime this year, I'm sure. :)
