best pairs skating choreography ever would be...

If the guy threw the girl into the stands where someone caught her, threw her back, and the guy caught her again. Add a triple-something in there and you totally win the gold.

So I've made a decision about my future. I'm not gonna say what, in case it comes to nothing, but it made me read my MFA thesis again, and holy God. I can't imagine anyone reading that thing and not thinking the author was both genius and madwoman. Like, I should be on some major meds.

In any event...
a month and a half, 14 books. I think we know why I don't have a boyfriend.

Culver City

I've been to Culver City before, but not like today where it was the destination. And, much to my surprise, it's not a terrible place. I gazed lustily at Sony and just really enjoyed Washington Blvd. Stopped at Surfas, which seems to have developed fully-formed out of a chef's head, and got my mom a gift and a delicious biscuit at the cafe. Then a Valentine's pseudo-whoopie pie at Essential Chocolate Desserts. Amazing. Then I went to the Culver City Westfield mall and watched some strange people in retro orange and white gym outfits demonstrate an exercise device that attached to your door. I thought it was called Core Door, but I can't find it online. Anyhow.

I LOVE Sherman Oaks, but if I ever had to work Sony (and I would give all my fingernails to do so), I could handle the move.

Got a new roommate with the same name as me, except it's spelled differently. In fact, it's spelled more bizarrely than my way. Does that make me the normal one? Perhaps...

Feb. 1

Ten books down. Boo-yah!

Granted, none of them have been massive tomes or even the books I expected to finish, but I am wending my way through the Canongate Myth series, so that makes me happy.

I expect this month to read more of the Canongate Myth books, A House in Bali, Evia, T.C. Boyle's The Women, and hopefully The City and the City. Perhaps some others.

Also, Russell Brand wears boots with heels and is very, very skinny. And I think his favorite adjective is "pleasant"--he even used it to describe his fiancee.

That is all.
In summing up, I wish I had some kind of affirmative message to leave you with. I don't. Would you take two negative messages?
