Five for May 28th:
Jane. Sitting up without falling over, eating toast and strawberries (with the aid of her new upper front teeth), and jumping around like crazy in her swing are all things she is doing now. Also, I can literally do anything and it will make her laugh.
Tuesday tunes. Sebadoh, Descendents, Fugazi, Operation Ivy, Built to Spill, Sonic Youth.
Columbia. Great time hanging out with old friends and seeing their respective kids for the first time. It’s a weird feeling being a bunch of parents, hanging out in this place we used to hang out when none of use were parents. The drive there was a harrowing one- we had to stop twice due to the pummeling rain being too much for my wipers to keep up with.
Cool stuff. Impromptu Sunday trip to the zoo and turtle park, skate session with Andy at the Y, sandwiches and lattes at Ragtag, new season of Grosso’s Loveletters, four day workweek, March/April eBay watch.
Arrested Development. Well, I didn’t have high hopes for it and it’s pretty much living up to that- the non-linear storyline annoys the crap out of me, it’s trying to pack too much into each episode, and Portia de Rossi is now a plastic surgery disaster. The whole thing is weird. I will say, the Tobias episode was great, and I laughed out loud several times, so maybe there’s still hope.
