I watched The Devil Wears Prada last night. Apparently I’m not the first girl to fall into a job in the Administrative Arts. Too bad my job doesn’t come with a closet full of couture that I can pick through at my leisure. Also too bad that a size six is now a size fourteen. Wait, does that make the reverse true? A size fourteen is a size six. Yes, sounds like logic to me. (What are the implications for Caprica!Six? Discuss amongst yourselves…)
I can’t believe I forgot to mention I’m going to see THE DRESDEN DOLLS!!!!!!! I got tickets for the end of July in San Francisco! I haven’t been to a concert in so long—in fact I could probably list them on two hands—Alanis Morissette, Bush, No Doubt (all three with The Pink Fairy), 311, A Perfect Circle, and Unwritten Law. Anyway, I love Amanda Palmer’s lyrics. She sprinkles the F-word liberally (Shhh! Don’t tell my mom!) like Liz Phair (Used to? I haven’t listened to her latest) and talks about S-E-X. If you can’t be dirty in music, then where can you?
I’m no Rachel Ray. I hosted a couple of friends for a Fourth of July barbeque. I can’t do everything in 30 minutes and I suck at being bubbly and making up cute acronyms. My annoying neighbors partied from noon until 9 PM. One of their guests showed off her prominent plumbers’ crack and I had an interesting vantage point from my balcony. When the obnoxious neighbors came up to introduce themselves to me on my patio I asked myself, What Would Starbuck Do? The only answer I could come up with was to punch my neighbors. Against my better judgment, I ran the other way and boiled inwardly.
I think that’s it on the randomness front. I’m off. Damn, I forgot to wear my trusty cardigan. Now I won’t have the desired effect of my cape blowing briskly as I fly off to solve Some Great Payroll Problem…
