Current Mood


Listening to Interpol's Evil on repeat.
You can hear it for yourself for a free download of the single here.
Doing some thinking that I want to put off but not sure if I should.
How much can you trust your gut?


On another note...have you heard of Radioblog? Its a blog addition that you can add to your site where you can feature streaming music in its entirety. Visiters can see your music selection and listen live on the internet. If you visit you can search any song, artist, album and pull up a list of radioblogs that contain'em. I like it because you can sample entire songs @ work, the library, etc. PLUS you can then choose to buy it from iTunes versus being limited to only hearing 30sec clips of songs.
Search these songs:

1. MIA - Galang
2. Bloc Party - Banquet
- Like Eating Glass
3. The Cult - She Sells Sanctuary

I think all these songs would be great to drive to.


I love my baby niece to pieces.
She knows how to work it.
Exhibit A: Off


Exhibit B: On

Work it.
Love it.
Own it.

She's got my 'tude. :)
I lurv it!

My epic quest to Atlanta has reached its end:
One girl.
One guy.
One bigass Chevy Trailblazer.
1260 miles.

A weekend getaway fueled by an itch to escape work and IKEA fetishes, we plotted our point of attack, struck, and came away victorious and flushed w/ memories.
Here are some anecdotes, photos and recaps.

Scene: Pitchblack night on Florida Turnpike.
Cindy, in driver seat. Nick, passenger seat.
Cindy: I wonder if there are any other headlight options other then daytime running lights?
(fiddles w/ steering wheel knobs, headlights turn off, roadview turns pitchblack. SUV at 80mph)
(turns knob again, headlights appear)
Nick: Whew.
Cindy: I wonder, what I do if I turn the switch this way?
(headlights turn off. Road view turns pitchblack)
(turns knob again, headlights appear)
Nick: Don't do that again.

Scene: Flashing blue and red lights fill up SUV's interior
Nick (wakens up from nap): Cindy, what have you done?
Cop: Ma'm, can I have your license, title, and insurance card?

After dropping dead for 2 hrs at hotel, we stopped at IKEA.
Notice the slightly delirious smile on my face.

IKEA's cafeteria.

SUV is fully loaded.

Swanhouse in Buckhead

This was the third of a series of bad Oriental signs I saw posted around town.
1st) Chin-Chin's Chinese Takeout
2nd) Mama Fu's Chinese Buffet
3rd) Miso Happy

Swanky looking noodlehouse called, what else, Noodles. Don't let the decor fool you, this place was pretty affordable. 2 thumbs up! Asian run also, unlike Miso Happy (see above).

My Sassy Girl

Classic boy-meets-girl, boy-becomes-indentured-boyfriend-to-psycho-girl, girl-abuses-boy, etc. and they fall happily in love. Ro-man-tic.

Korean cinema displaying dysfunctional asian romance at its best, gotta love it.
Excerpt from a scene:

The Girl: You know why the sky is blue?
Kyun-woo: Because the reflection from the sunshine causes...
The Girl: Wrong! It's to make me happy. I wanted it to be blue, so it's blue. You know why fire is hot? It's all for me. I wanted it to be hot, so it's hot. You know why we have four seasons here in Korea?
Kyun-woo: For you?
The Girl: Correct.
