i'm frustrated from this painting who's genius,
and my own satisfaction,
remain just outside my scope.
so i'm leaving it for tonight..

i downloaded the first five minutes of blade:trinity..just to see my friend paul die.
he's the guy who says "there is something below us!" and then he gets his head ripped off.

ben and i discovered this kitchy, tiny, veggie burrito place. supper.
then i made him watch the sex and the city episode where big moves to napa.
t minus 11 days.

i have pennies in piles of ten all over my coffee table.

conan o'brian is the funniest mind alive.

still only april and tonight was the first buddies, beer and beach night of the season
it was soo beautiful
walked down to vera's burger shack
and then to this rad part of the beach
where we stayed until the tide threatened our comfort levels
one of our girls is a crazy pastry chef brought crazy desert
and a relaxed, ocean beach night was had.

for this single gal
..including grocery shopping.
rescue me.

man i'm full.
i walked somewhere around half way home today after work
bought the new p:ano cd
da da da da
then it started POURING somewhere around burrard and broadway
and umbrellaless julie decides
oh no i'm not
so she bought a hot dog and a pop and plopped down on a step to wait it out
i kept walking up to granville
and decided to just make this whole eating on the go thing
my supper
and subsequently bought a crepe as well
man i'm full.

here are some cd's that i want
haiku d'etat*
new folk implosion*
(*these two with direct thanks to joel loewen)
pedro: hard to find a friend
ari da silva..i think?
the sea and cake: whatever album michelle was playing in her car that jarret gave her because he didn't like it.

i try and do this and this and this
and all jesus says is
just tell me you're broken
trying to draw something profound and perfect
all i feel is
god save me
i'm falling apart..

i sit here at my desk with thoughts that make me want to cry/giveup/goaway/get stubborn/fight the shit.. its all jumbled and emotional..
somewhere in the back of my mind
is this huge blanket and pillow and the love calling me to come on back
ok i say
thank you
its your arms
its your love
its your unrelentlesness
a tribute to damn funny. sorry you're gone.

-I would imagine that if you could understand morse code, a tap dancer would drive you crazy

-I opened up a container of yogurt, and under the lid it said "Please Try Again" because they were having a contest I was unaware of. But I thought I might have opened the yogurt wrong, or maybe Yoplait was trying to inspire me. 'C'mon, Mitchell, don't give up. Please try again. A message of inspiration from your friends at Yoplait. Fruit on the bottom, hope on top.'

-The Kit Kat candy bar has the name "Kit Kat" imprinted in the chocolate. That robs you of chocolate. Kit Kat has come up with a clever chocolate saving technique. I'm gonna go down to the Kit Kat factory, and say "Hey, you owe me some letters."

-I don't have a girlfriend. I just know this lady who'd be really mad if she heard me say that.

-If you had a friend who was a tightrope walker, and you were walking down a sidewalk, and he fell, that would be completely unacceptable.

hey kids
now y'all know that i'm not a huge fan of the christian music scene
but in totall support of some rad musician friends
i say go HERE
and vote for an amazing band
called in medias res
they really are stunning artists
after a longish day at work
made me absolultly piss myself laughing.
its worth downloading quicktime for if you don't have it.

drinking wine and eating s+v chips. class.
ben is leaving soon. for pretty much ever.

amos lee: arms of a woman
the district sleeps tonight: postal service
death cab for cutie: lack of color
my new low cd:the great destroyer. (i went and saw them with pedro the lion on saturday. it was the best pedro show i've seen. delicious) and i totally swiped that photo from whereever on the web. its not even from the show. i'm orrible)
aaaaand sufjan.
