EVERYDAY GOLDEN

Rolling

So we’ve signed the lease and have our keys, but I guess we still can’t move in till wed, because they are going to do some touch up work in the apt.

We are also supposed to get a puppy tomorrow. Since J and I super lame, we ‘ve already picked out names for a dog we don’t yet have-

Male- Louie

Female- Layla

We are dog hungry! Ha, that makes us sound barbaric:)

Its J’s b’day tomorrow, so other than the dog, I got him

a beanie from old navy :http://www.oldnavy.com/asp/Product.asp?wdid=10050&wpid=264094

and a book titled

Memoirs of a Primate-http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000062UJ0/qid=1102712075/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/104-1818978-2785562?v=glance&s=books

Watched Dogtown and Z boys again last night. Such a bad ass movie. Made me want to relive my rockstar fantasy again. J says he is completely grown out of wanting to be a rock star. Now he just wants to be responsible and stable.

Lesson to self Be careful what you ask for.

I am definitely not ready for stability and yuppie coupledom yet, but I have to accept reality for what it is. I am super yuppie with a boring life.

Will get out of it…I promise

Family Christmas

Two new acquisitions for the week

Julia Alavarez – Something to Declare

Ann Patchett – The Patron Saint of Liars

ANTM Update: I can’t believe they eliminated Norelle. The girl left a lot to be desired in the brains department, but I thought she photgraphed well and was genuinely nice and naive unlike Miss Eva and the rest. Can’t wait for next week.

Early Christmas in Richmond

Additional Christmas present- Leather Jacket….purr!

On a quest to be a waitress. Idea spurned by J, back to being broke.

Thanksgiving Week

Okay so, the housing situation is under a major renovation. Big changes ahead….I have an impeding sense of gloom. Yeah yeah yeah…change is supposed to be good but I’m still a little nervous about this overhaul. Anyway more on that later, when things actually start to happen

So Imade a thanksgiving feast for J and me this thanksgiving. This is the first thanksgiving where i actually made a turkey roast and everything. A lot of things came from the box but, J isn’t overly fussy and traditional is so boring anyway. Here is my

This is what I’ve been the last couple of days:

Lady Lazarus

I have done it again.

One year in every ten

I manage it—–

A sort of walking miracle,

y skin Bright as a Nazi lampshade,

My right foot

A paperweight,

My featureless, fine

Jew linen.

Peel off the napkin

O my enemy.

Do I terrify?——-

The nose, the eye pits, the full set of teeth?

The sour breath

Will vanish in a day.

Soon, soon the flesh

The grave cave ate will be

At home on me

And I a smiling woman.

I am only thirty.

And like the cat I have nine times to die

This is Number Three.

What a trash

To annihilate each decade

What a million filaments.

The Peanut-crunching crowd

Shoves in to see

Them unwrap me hand and foot ——

The big strip tease.

Gentleman , ladies

These are my hands

My knees.

I may be skin and bone,

Nevertheless, I am the same, identical woman.

The first time it happened I was ten.

It was an accident.

The second time I meant

To last it out and not come back at all.

I rocked shut

As a seashell.

They had to call and call

And pick the worms off me like sticky pearls.

Dying

Is an art, like everything else.

I do it exceptionally well.

I do it so it feels like hell.

I do it so it feels real.

I guess you could say I’ve a call.

It’s easy enough to do it in a cell.

It’s easy enough to do it and stay put.

It’s the theatrical

Comeback in broad day

To the same place, the same face, the same brute

Amused shout:

‘A miracle!’

That knocks me out.

There is a charge

For the eyeing my scars, there is a charge

For the hearing of my heart—

It really goes.

And there is a charge, a very large charge

For a word or a touch

Or a bit of blood

Or a piece of my hair on my clothes.

So, so, Herr Doktor.

So, Herr Enemy.

I am your opus,

I am your valuable,

The pure gold baby

That melts to a shriek.

I turn and burn.

Do not think I underestimate your great concern.

Ash, ash—

You poke and stir.

Flesh, bone, there is nothing there—-

A cake of soap,

A wedding ring,

A gold filling.

Herr God, Herr Lucifer

Beware

Beware.

Out of the ash

I rise with my red hair

And I eat men like air.

Polar Express

So…All the reviewers were right , Polar Express sucks. Even being stoned out of my mind couldn’t help the movie. Tom Hanks was everywhere , which was creepy. It was one long monologue of him talking to himself basically.

The animation was stiff and robotic and the character’s eyes stared back at you just a little longer that it needed to, giving the impression, they were out to get me.

Cheesy Music! Cheesier story line! But worth watching if you are going to have a whole theater to yourself with two of your good friends , while completely fried.

I bet the ride is going to be way cool though! That is if they can convince the amusement parks the movie was a hit.

Ho Hum

So it looks like everything is going fine for the moment. After a little bit of turbulence around the end of the month, it seems like everything has settled in nicely. The job is getting a little better too, since I have 3 clients and have actually managed to generate a small bit of extra money. J is still the main breadwinner.

Will go see my parents in richmond on saturday, could be fun;) Also I am going to an indian thing on friday w/out J. Am expanding my wings.

Mostly though, I ‘ve just been in the mood to go back to spoilt suburbanite princess, especially now that its the holiday season and there all sorts of delicious goodies around.

Must have’s for this week-
