Me and my friend the Fox hanging out on the shores of Lake Huron.
When I cracked open my fortune cookie and saw this message, I thought ‘Yeah, I dunno…a hundred steps still sounds like kind of a lot to me…?’
But then I googled ‘how many steps are in a mile’ and apparently the answer is 2,000.
So, yeah, I guess there is something to be said for friendship.
Thanks for the reminder, Fortune Cookie!
So my friend Duck here is rocking a new pair of earphones. Check ‘em out:
They’re little ducks!
I think that is just great.
Look at these dudes with their happy little smiling faces:
They are just having a good time! Life is great!
You guys! The nicest thing just happened to me. I work with this girl named Lolita (great name, right?) and today as I was leaving our building to go and grab some lunch, Lolita was returning from a walk. She saw me turn into the stairwell, noticed that I didn’t have an umbrella with me (it’s another dismal day), and caught up with me in order to lend me hers. Isn’t that awesome? I don’t even know her that well, but she went out of her way to help me out.
The best part was that her umbrella is one of those fancy ones with a heavy carved wooden handle, the kind that is really sturdy and doesn’t get turned inside-out by the wind. Just carrying it around made me feel more dignified. When the rain stopped I used the umbrella as a walking cane which felt very 19th-century-sophisticated-country-gentleman, and I imagined myself tramping across the moors of my estate surveying the land, with my trusty pack of foxhounds at my heels.*
*Obviously my entire notion of the English countryside comes from Jane Austen novels.
Anyway, this thoughtful gesture on the part of my colleague really helped to brighten up a rainy day!
Ugh. It is really gross out today — cold, rainy, and windy. Just miserable.
But…it’s the perfect day for a nice, warm, comforting bath!
As they say, every cloud has a silver lining.
Some of the topics we’re covering in Young Drivers are…kind of amazing.
Not to say that it’s ever a laughing matter to have a bat flying around in your car, but I am quite amused by the wording of the suggestions for handling such an occurrence.
Oh, man. You guys, I just love seeing shows at Massey Hall so much. The sound is great, and it’s a really pretty venue. In the past couple of years I’ve seen Sonic Youth, Monsters of Folk, Pixies, and Jane’s Addiction there. Last night was Death Cab for Cutie. It was an awesome show. I saw them last summer at the Molson Amphitheatre when they were touring behind their (excellent) record, Codes and Keys. Last night they played a bunch of older stuff, and had an orchestra on stage with them. I love it when rock bands incorporate strings into their songs, so I was totally all over it.
There are few things in life that make me happier than music. Seeing live shows is one of the best things in the world.
Here’s a song I’ve been listening to on repeat for the past couple of days:
As for the video, I really like that dog statue sitting next to him. Awesome. But the fringed jean shorts on the one girl are kind of aggressive. I dunno. I feel like fringed clothing in general is really hard to pull off, unless you are someone like Dennis Hopper, or Talitha Getty. Y’know what I mean?
Um…is this not the best invention you have ever heard of?
