Elliptical Treadmill by Nordic Track -or- Agent of the Devil? I was undecided until my thighs started smoking. Next time I shall be merciless.
This weekend I'm finishing my surprise gifts for my friends in Sugarland. For Kristen & Kristian, I'm making wooden trinket boxes. For Jenn, I'm making a wooden box purse in the shape of a hardback novel, and the design for it is going to be "Story Of Your Bones", her first solo album. I'm going to make it look like a novel. Will post pictures when it's all done.
I had a nice conversation with my friend photol last night, mostly playing catch-up on what's happened since the last time we saw one another. It feels really good to be back in contact with him, I didn't realize how much I'd missed him until he began reposting in his journal recently. So welcome back to the fold, Elton John! I'm listening to some old favorite songs in your honor this morning, and I can't wait to meet Clara and give you both a hug.
I don't care what anyone says, The Replacements are one of the most highly underrated bands ever. Same with Concrete Blonde. I'll never be able to think of this band or hear this music without thinking about how excited he was the first time I mentioned being a longtime fan of The Replacements to him almost four years ago in the parking lot of the radio station before my shift. It was the same look he gave me the first time I played Jeff Buckley for him and you could tell in his eyes that his entire soul was on fire. I remember him telling me "How is it possible that I live and breathe music, but have never heard this before?"
