go on, girl, getcha wobble on

With a tip o’ the lid to [cream] for the idea, my “current” list. I lack her mad formatting skillz, as well as the motivation to figure it out, so I apologize for how craptacular this looks.


*No Touch Monkey! by Ayun Halliday
*Superstud, or How I Became a 24-Year-Old Virgin by Paul Feig (the funniest damn book I've read in forever; it must be read by chronic masturbators and geeky adolescents of all ages)
*Swamp Thing: Reunion by Alan Moore


"Soldier in a Box" by Hot Hot Heat
"Samson" by Regina Spektor
"Angel of Love" by CHAM (I’m so glad I found my Perfect Blue soundtrack; this track is essential for any hardcore J-pop fan)

To Buy List

*G's birthday present
*Shaving cream
*More black shirts (because I can never have enough black shirts)
*Black flats

Happy Things

*I have a massage tonight
*Three birthday celebrations in one week = lots and lots of dessert. Sweet, sweet dessert.
*G’s nephews gave me (unprompted) hugs when they left on Saturday

Not-So-Happy Things

*How the ever-lovin’ fuck am I going to be 35?
*Still worried about my brother
*Sad for my friend B, who just had a miscarriage
*My room is dusty and messy, and needs to be cleaned forthwith, but...
*...It’s too damn hot out
*My computer is acting up
*My iPod is acting up too, so I had to take my old, clunky Discman on my morning walk. Christ, I might as well have carried a gramophone on my fucking shoulder.


*Black shirt
*Black ruffly skirt with white floral print
*High-heeled mary janes
*White gold and diamond ring
*Miss Marisa perfume
