a little bit of service and repair

Comments: 0 - Date: February 24th, 2008 - Categories: Things I Say

well, between the jetlag, this cold i picked up on the plane, and the lack of any real, hard deadlines, motivation is nigh on impossible. my only hope: the magic elixir that is the hot toddy. well, as an apartment, we’re turning out a lot of homemade soup, and that doesn’t hurt either.

but, with all the de-toxing and general health-ification that’s been going in the apartment in my absence, i have to wonder if i shouldn’t be using this down time to do some general lifestyle maintenance. so, in addition to getting a dresser and rug for my bedroom, i’m gonna focus on stocking up the kitchen with thriftiness and health in mind, and make sure i keep a clean, organized work space in my room.

“doesn’t take much time for plans to go astray/ and chase another ghost of a chance./ they say deep down inside, lie properties of a healing kind,/ if so it’d better come around soon/ and do a little bit of service and repair…/ doesn’t take much time for plans to change/ and offer up another chance/ at sowing the dream better suited for both soul and soil.” – calexico

late to the game

i hope to be living proof that it is never too late to start listening to (unordered excerpt of much longer list):

  • mogwai
  • beta band
  • tom waits
  • frank zappa
  • aimee mann
  • that side project of your favorite band that you never got around to following up on

as far as i can tell, southern california is the mecca of personalized license plates. these two tied as my number-one-favorite:

  • “cptalst” on a new fancy german convertable
  • “mdlfe cx” on a very, very yellow souped-up pickup truck

i guess that they know the “it’s funny because it’s true” cliche is now, well, cliche. and, apparently, they are ok with that.
