anyone know of any indie record/cd shops on the east end? meaning riverhead, north fork, south fork?
April 19 is record shop day. i want to make a story of it.
also, i see zine fests being held all over the place. how about on long island?

so guess who's using another sick day and heading back to the dr tomorrow? that's right. that would be me. this time, i'm going to demand meds.
not only am i still sick, but i feel worse. i still have a fever, my ears ache so much and i can't stop coughing, even when i take freaking nyquil. i slept from about 4 pm until 9:30. lame lame lame. i'm also going to have to cancel my plans for tomorrow night.
Here's the awesome mix I made for Brandie. The only productive thing I did all day. It's a bit Rilo Kiley heavy, but the VU cover is essential, and she doesn't know any older RK stuff, so I figured I'd put two other songs on there. She'll appreciate it. And Jon and I discussed the mix all day. We've decided I am a younger, female, lesbian version of him. It's actually kind of scary.
Murder City Devils - Alcohol
Rilo Kiley - Papillon
Stars - Today Will Be Better, I Swear
Ryan Adams - To Be Young
Okkervil River - The Latest Toughs
Geraldine Fibbers - House is Falling
Taken By Trees - Lost and Found
Beirut - Postcards from Italy
St. Vincent - Apocalypse Song
Deb Talan - Vincent
Calexico - Alone Again Or (Love cover)
Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (I went for the fairly obvious one)
Rilo Kiley - Science vs. Romance
Trashed on Fiction - Safety Net (awesome song by an awesome LI band)
Vampire Weekend - Mansard Roof
Violent Femmes - American Music
Throwing Muses - Bright Yellow Gun
Hold Steady - Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? (Dylan cover)
Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers - Roadrunner (another fairly obvious route, but who cares?)
Cold War Kids - We Used to Vacation
Rilo Kiley - After Hours (Velvet Underground cover)

|anyone up for a road trip?
i'd like something long-ish, but i'll take what i can get. i'd have to plan it around work and i'd kind of like our trip to be not so planned and more important than the destination. any takers? any ideas? i should probably ask dawn, but i'd like to do something different. i take all my trips with her.

|good movie streak
last night i saw juno and it was awesome. not only that, but the soundtrack is amazing, including songs by belle and sebastian, velvet underground (which we all know is one of my favorite bands ever in the whole entire fucking world), the kinks and cat power. and half of the soundtrack was original songs written and performed by kimya dawson of the moldy peaches. even more awesome.
this makes a fantastic good movie streak i'm on. i have loved the last four movies i saw, which is amazing.
first i saw i'm not there, a crazy, trippy, pseudo-bob dylan biopic, where he was played by six people and represented by six different characters, none of whom were actually called bob dylan.
then the golden compass. another very good movie. and since harry potter is over, i needed a good children's fantasy type thing (i want to read it soon as well...)
dawn and i saw walk hard and that movie was so freaking funny. i loved all the people in it. so many good people made random, small appearances and i loved all the music it referenced.
finally, juno last night.
not only were these movies awesome. but i want the soundtracks to three of them (everything but the golden compass). and i never want soundtracks. so this is quite an amazing feat.
hopefully the streak will continue when i see sweeney todd.

|on a break
tis the official word. we are on a break. i told her i didn't know if i thought we would work out and i'm not sure if i want to be with her.
i am a terrible girlfriend, at least with her. we are terrible together.
as expected, i miss her. i think we can be ok.
this is why i never know what is going on.
i had a fun night though. went to a couple of shows and i left in the middle of the last one. i was so tired, but had to walk home... ok bed for me in a second

|ickiness and other things
i was so sick yesterday i actually had to leave work a couple of hours early, and felt like a tool for doing so.
i had plans for a late lunch with danielle. i was starving when i went in, had a couple of small things, some oatmeal and a clementine. and my stomach was so sick. but i thought it was because i was hungry.
we went to panera, i ordered food and couldn't touch any of it my stomach was so sick. and it got worse when we went back to the office. any slight movement made me sick. i got a bad headache and chills. so i went home. and it was a good thing i did.
then i slept for four hours straight and woke up starving. i stupidly decided to seek out vegan pizza, thinking, "hey, i feel awesome now."
when getting directions to the vegan pizza place, i stupidly put in the wrong city (cambridge rather than allston). i got tremendously lost. nearly wound up on 93 heading into boston. freaked out a little bit. eventually, found my way back the way i came from and went home.
and it was a good thing i didn't get the pizza because after eating some soup when i got home, my stomach was so icky again.
then i watched the office and sleeeeept.
now i feel amazing and i think i'm going to see the bob dylan movie. and i still want my damn vegan pizza.
i think my roommate got annoyed yesterday. she said rent is due this weekend. i said ok cool and asked about when she paid utilities and asked her to refresh my mind again what utilities we paid for. the last one she said was phone. so i said, "well, i don't plan on using the phone here. i only use my cell phone." and she seemed annoyed by that. but really, i have been here three weeks. i have not touched her phone once. it took me a few days to realize it was in her study and she never changed the outgoing message to include me, so why would she think i planned on using the phone ever. craziness.
so this weekend is bob dylan movie, maybe out with people tonight, mall tomorrow and some random play tomorrow night.
i'm only working mon and tues this week. i'm going to florida to see my parents. this is why i need to head to the mall, to christmas shop.
i also need to call up my auto insurance people and complain. they gave me an estimate and when my dec. bill came in the mail my policy was about $400 more, with no explanation? and they had said i would pay about $120 a month and they were asking for $240? and even if i divided the new price of the policy they gave me, it would only come out to about $140 a month. so i need to bitch some people out.
i also need a new lens for my brake light. and an oil change. and to have someone check out the squealing of my belts.

|oh it is nearly the weekend
work is going well? it's hard to tell. everyone is still very nice and very cool/fun. i've been doing actual things this week. from what i've heard, i'm not supposed to be doing actual things yet. i assume it's because the girl who has been working on the account i will be splitting with her eventually has been going insane. she's pretty awesome though. probably my favorite person so far. or one of them, at least.
this weekend should be fun. a movie, a night out, a random play?, and i am hoping vegan pizza and/or the mall. though i think the latter two could be on my own. i can't finish unpacking until i get a dresser though.
i go to li, and i'm sad and miss it. but i come back and i love it here. insane. i randomly drove around the town near my job when i went to whole foods today. i always like to just drive and do nothing. and i just love new england towns. i remembered why i love to be up here. as much as i love cambridge/somerville/etc, i love quaint, artsy, new england towns. sigh it makes me happy... i could see myself living in woodstock one day (ok, not really woodstock)
so i'm heading to bed in a few. that's it. i have nothing else to say. i guess i'm kind of tired.
|tonight was fun
i went to a couple of shows with nicole. we had a good time. i made some plans for saturday night, possibly for sunday. that's good because i would get bored.
maybe going to a movie with danielle? who knows... i'd also like to get to some christmas shopping and a mechanic to try to fix my brakelight.
but alas. tomorrow is only thursday.
work was good today. i actually did things rather than sit and watch and wait and be kinda bored. i really like a bunch of the people i work with, so far, of course.
that's it. i'm going to finish watching the simpsons and go to bed.

i left my leftovers in ny. sad.
i'm just not feeling good about a few things right now. but we'll see how it goes. i tend to be paranoid and neurotic for no reason.
chocolate soy milk is amazing with peanut butter and jelly.
i'm actually considering going to bed. so tired. for no reason. it was such a low key weekend, which was nice.
my kitties are crazy cute.
|Tuesday, November 20th, 2007|
dawn hasn't even called me back all night.
but i talked to damien! and j-ro!
i'm happy here i think. my first day was decent. didn't suck, didn't completely rock. i had thai food. ok bed now. so much going on.

|boston is fun
i had fun tonight. took danielle to a gay bar. her friend nicole came. no one talked to any of the cute girls pointed out. i'[m just glad i live close enough to hang out with danielle!
tomorrow i'm going to get drinks and go to a show with danielle's friend then meet up with danielle. nothing insane. but still fun. and i'll finish my unpacking.

|my kitties are adorable
i just had the realization that i wish they could speak to me.
i'm starting an online writing group. anyone interested?
|Wednesday, November 14th, 2007|
|all i have to do is write in livejournal
i'm feeling a bit lame, i suppose, but that will pass, i think
so my internet is working. it was magical. after deleting some driver i needed, accidentally, danielle came back with the driver i needed burned to a disk. 5 minutes later, i was online. yay danielle!
i have no cable but at least i can download degrassi!
kitties are not so happy, but getting better. they are hiding mostly in my empty closet. this hinders my unpacking because that will be my storage closet. but right now it's a kitty home, so i feel guilty putting anything in there.
they're scared of anything that isn't my bedroom. i close my bedroom door and they leave the closet. i open the door, they run hiding. it's hilarious, sweet and a pain in the ass at the same time.
tonight i saw a pretty good show at a bar that was about a 10-minute walk in Porter Sq. Danielle and my roommate didn't show up (though I didn't think Danielle really would and I'm sure my roommate was just running late) So I left at 11 because I felt silly being there alone. But I had a couple of rum and cokes and I'm a bit tipsy. I haven't drank in... a while.
Anyway, tomorrow insurance, bank, car registration. Friday is Grasshopper and lesbian bar. Saturday is a show I kind of want to go to and I'm toying with whether or not I'm sad going to it alone. I should spend the time with my kitties probably.
People in Boston should hang out with me (I'm aware I have like 3 people on here who live in Boston and one of them is Danielle) and people who don't live in Boston should come visit me.
don't have my internet working yet but i hopped on my roommate's comp for a few (she gave her permission, of course, but i won't take advantage...)
i've been alternately cranky, happy and productive.
i miss dawn. i miss long island. i've had moments where i say, "what the heck is wrong with me? i need to go back to li right away." i'm worried about dawn. her cysty thingie is bigger than any organ in her abdomen. surgery is a definite. it's just a matter of when. and i'm being stupid and selfish and got upset and kind of mad, sort of at her, that she might not visit me until january. that was my fault, i admit. i just want her to visit. i really miss her.
i found my way to a few places yesterday, making me happy. and i'm a 5 minute walk to davis sq, which is pretty awesome.
trying to take care of tons of things. dmv and insurance stuff is a pain in the ass. i actually have to look up the name of the dude who sold me my car, which is why i even touched peg's computer.
i got lost trying to find the watertown dmv today and drove around harvard sq in circles several times. luckily, danielle picked up her phone and helped. she'll be by later to help with my computer.
oh, and i already locked myself out of my apartment. because i'm awesome.
tonight i'm going to a show down the road. tomorrow will be wholly productive (today was productive as well, i got my license and started with insurance junk) friday is grasshopper and lesbian bar with danielle. then who knows about the weekend.
i have so much to do i haven't even had time to be nervous about my new job...

|more about my love of degrassi
the cw is freaking awesome because every sunday they air two ours of degrassi the next generation. and today it was great because they ran the "jay and silent bob do degrassi" episodes.
today i bought the science of sleep. i loved that movie.
|Thursday, November 1st, 2007|
she's been gone for nearly 3 hours. her phone rang when i called at first. now it's off. i don't know what to think. it's too late to call anyone. though i did already call people way later than i should have. i just want to know she's ok.
