  • Last night the Universe sent me stoned and two hours late to the wrong theater in the wrong borough. I pouted at a party that I wasn't invited to, I just burst in. Room full of unfamiliar faces, I knew I should have checked before somehow. Mercury facing backwards for another two weeks. Irrelevant, but I was wearing a really cute outfit and smelled really good wearing voodoo oil, I'd been burning prosperity herbs all night. I felt really great and wanted to see my friends perform. The Universe sent me out as if for practice, then reminded me that I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I trudged through ice and snow and meditated on the positive aspects of the season. I called my old homegirl Cotton and we gabbed for a bit about being in touch with our old friend Antlers.
  • Reading Burroughs' The Wild Boys I could have saved myself so much time if someone had given it to me as a kid.
  • Back home in bed ate havlah and watched "Capote". I've said this before but I think Catherine Keener should star in everything ever.
  • The Universe gave me a hint and I listened to it and it's too cold.
  • Ice cream
  • Sodas
  • Making you a mix CD with the songs as messages
  • You love the way it feels to suck on my lips
  • But you know you won't get the chance again
