I’m so very excited that springtime seems to slowly be returning. This winter was rather horrid for me in a few different ways, so I’m quite glad to leave it behind & am definitely looking forward to spring weather, walks in the woods, warm rainstorms, sundresses, etc.
She was one half of The Vaselines, one of my favorite bands ever. They’re wonderful & Sunny Moon is, too. It’s slower and sweeter than The Vaselines’ work & is lovely throughout. She covers Leonard Cohen’s “You Know Who I Am” (from Songs From a Room) and it’s so pretty. It’s a lovely, lovely song, one of his best, and I’m usually not a fan of Cohen covers (because they rarely do the songs justice), but this one is excellent and I’m very glad that it’s on the album. You can download it here: tinyurl.com/pgnbpc. (& The subject line comes from the song.) Gorgeous album!
I’ve had this necklace for a couple of months, but I’ve neglected to post the photo until now. It’s from here & I love it to bits. It’s kind of silly, I know, but I’ve always wanted a name necklace.
- A few things that I’m enjoying lately:
♥ Watching The Prisoner. I never seem to tire of it & can watch the same episodes multiple times without getting bored. I love it & was also happy to recently see a re-run of of the episode of The Simpsons that was an homage to The Prisoner & that guest-starred Patrick McGoohan:
& I also recently ordered this poster from Ebay:
Wonderful! I love having it up in my living room.
♥ Diet Dr. Pepper. It’s my current addictive diet soda of choice.
♥ This Rimmel lipgloss. It’s lovely & I go through it really quickly.
♥ Watching the Space Shuttle launch on Monday was amazing and exciting. I get such a sense of almost vertiginous wonder and awe at such things. Really, really beautiful.
♥ I’m very much enjoying reading both Higher Superstition and Fashionable Nonsense. I’ve been meaning to read them for a long time, and am very glad that I’ve finally gotten around to it. I’m terribly frustrated with and don’t know where I fit into my academic field anymore, and am so very glad to have books like this to remind me that I’m not alone in the frustrations I feel about a variety of things. When I’ve finished them, I’ll post about them and about the topic in general.
♥ Thunderstorms! & I’m going to go watch one right now. Very comforting.
More soon! Thanks for reading & commenting. ♥
