no rhyme or reason

#1 - waking up to the news about ann richards really sucked. she was a kick ass ground breaking broad. all i can think about is the guy who ran through austin naked after she lost the election to george w. with "we miss ann already" painted on his chest and back. the cops wouldn't arrest him. i wonder what he's doing today.
#2 - i miss teena.
#3 - i am seriously obsessed with hedgehogs. i blame it on cute overload. and then cute overload linked to this blog. when i discovered that numo and family live in chicago i seriously contemplated how i could make them be our friends so that we could meet numo.
#4 - people are really dumb sometimes.
#5 - i can't decide if this is kind of cool or the most ridiculous thing i've ever seen. i mean, who wouldn't want to live like a hobbit.
#6 - i'm in love with my new shoes. cutest. ever.
#7 - i love zombies. i love people who love zombies too.
#8 - i find the idea of a grey gardens musical entirely ridiculous. but strangely appealing.
#9 - i am entirely overwhelmed by the amount of pixie roll / shana says work i need to do.   
#10 - i can't wait for fall tv to start in earnest.

friday's random ten (thoughts)

#1 - i LOVE blueprint magazine. its beautifully designed. wonderful illustrations. and it contains info i may actually use. i am seriously contemplating a subscription.

#2 - i am already experiencing 9/11 fatigue. and i know its only going to get worse.

#3 - i am definitely experiencing katrina fatigue. the spike lee was about my limit. and then when we were in nola we went to see hurricane on the bayou at the imax. it broke my heart. again. and i realized i'm done. i will go to nola. i will volunteer. i will send money when i can. but i cannot deal with any more of the media coverage. i just can't.

#4 - work is crazy. but i'm not hating it. its nice.

#5 - could isaac mizrahi rock any harder? could this sweater that i purchased yesterday be ANY cuter? well, it could be, if it was a better pic. the roses are sort of an ode to suerat and pointillism.


#6 - and speaking of cute, i am so enamoured with this oh-so-fabulous and oh-so-adorable artist who i've bought a few pieces from on etsy. i was also given a few pieces of her art for my b-day. her blog has become a regular haunt of mine and i just can't get enough of those damn hedgehogs. she is cute overload incarnate.

#7 - i hate this whole survivor race thing. as if dividing the teams into men and women wasn't bad enough last season. it leaves me feeling rather icky. i can't decide if i can even bring myself to watch.

# 8 - i am DYING to see the illusionist. and idlewild. and little miss sunshine. a movie sounds like a really good idea this weekend. and ice cream. a movie and ice cream.

#9 - i'm in a really girly "i love shawn <sigh>" period. he was just so kind and supportive all of august when i was supercranky and getting ready for my show. he made sure i was fed. he didn't scream and yell at me when i was screaming and yelling at him and probably deserved it. and he bullied a bunch of people into coming to my show. plus, he's cute. i'm mean look at him.


#10 - i've been really lax about working out/chores/adult crap. things kind of fell apart when i was getting ready for my show. the fines are being reinstated on sunday. oy.
