Subject:haiku_piano
Security:Public
Mood: calm
Music:Ben Folds

keys, white, cold, pounding,
to fill sentimental memories
of a piano.

heart felt melodies,
grace air and mind,
an instrumental haven.

eyes closed, ears
uplifted mind calm
far from home.

note: ok so i'm listening to Ben Folds-rockin' the suburbs which i just bought today and am enjoying thorougly. his music is so unbelieveably inspirational that i just had to write!

Subject:bee sting.
Security:Public
Mood: chipper

i am fantastic! i have every bit of my christmas shopping done and wrapped. woo hoo! and the best part is i am really happy with all of the presents i've bought, and all of them were shopped for stress free!

for years now i've questioned the materialisticness of christmas and have finally found an answer.

it's not about the fact that they are material possessions, it's the fact that people are giving (yay!) and i am perfectly happy, no matter how materialistic it is, with a holiday that promotes giving. because giving promotes selflesness, and that promotes happiness. yay for happiness.


on another note i got stung by a bee yesterday, it was my first time to ever have been stung. i have to say the benedryl works wonders...especially on my brain. hah!

Subject:i miss stolen cd's
Security:Public
Mood: cheerful
Music:lou reed and the velvet underground

i miss my cd's so much it's unbelieveable. i went to waterloo yesterday, a local record store, and found myself having to start all over again. it was so sad gazing over all the ablums and realizing that i used to have most of them. but it's thinking maybe this is a good thing, no more burned cd's, no more cd's bought at corporate places.

this time i'm going it right!

so i bought "with the beatles," "post"-bjork, and "chronicles"- lou reed and the velvet underground. i think i chose well to begin my collection again, all good music with variety. i believe next time i will by "august and everything after"-counting crows, and "either/or"-elliot smith. sigh. i'm beginning to feel good about this whole thing.

maybe sometimes things were ment to happen.

Subject:400 cd's stolen
Security:Public
Mood: depressed
Music:none. i only have one cd left. and it's christmas music.

i can't believe it. someone actually stole every one of my cd's. 400+ of them. if only they would have looked at them before they stole them. i can just see them now pronouncing the "j" in "bjork" and wondering who the hell she is. i can see them looking at radiohead and thinking "aren't they the guys who did creep?" those idiots. i can see them seeing elliot smith, and being so ignorant that they wouldn't know who he is, or that he died. i can see them taking one look at louie armstrong and thinking "he's the guy who won all them races in france" idiot. and maybe worst of all, they won't understand that my copy of yellow submarine with "hey bull dog" is out of print and i am a huge beatles fan. i could kill them. my music mean so much to me. so many cd's, all bought at a local record store so i could support local business (therefore expensive), all given careful consideration, so many of them foreign (like my japanese punk that isn't even in print anymore), so many european records i got last summer that aren't sold here. i can't ever get them back except by buying them again.....but 400x20.00....that's so much money. they will never love that music like i do, in fact...i bet it's somewhere in a ditch wishing it were back in my hands.

so goodbye to the beatles, bjork, radiohead, counting crows, louis armstrong, frank sinatra, gabin, ella fitzgerald, elliot smith, cat power, ween, lou reed and the velvet underground, nico, royal tennenbaums soundtrack, lord of the rings, harry potter, all of my classical music, st. germaine, elvis at sun studio, fiona apple, tori amos, esquivel, the ramones, the sex pistols, the strokes, hot hot heat, billie holiday, buddy holly, the ravonettes, the dandy warhols, buena vista social club, janis joplin, stevie ray vaughn, ray charles, fugees, lauren hill, jimi hendrix, the byrds, bob dylan, the rolling stones, the doors, jefforson airplane, a million 80's records, all three forest gump soundtracks, beck, modest mouse, rufus wainright, and so many more i can't even listen them because i can't see through my damn tears. i am a sentimental kind of gal i guess.

Subject:dirty girl brand
Security:Public
Mood: chipper

i bought some lovely lotion with glitter in it made by "dirty girl." i was ultra excited to see that the lotion is whipped....or so they said. i expected the texture to be like whipped cream, delicately spreading across my skin. well...i dont' know what this whipped business is about but it sure seems like normal lotion to me. don't get me wrong, i still love the lotion, i'm just a little disappointed. but yay! i have pretty lotion!

Music:elliot smith- bottle up and explode

who would have thought scholarships would be this weird? for most of them, to recieve any money you have to have had a distant relative who died in world war 1, who's brother was a doctor, who's mother was a goldfish breeder with green eyes who like the color pink. grr.
