Afternoon Malaise

I wanna book that'll make me drunk ...

I'm getting back into the Tragically Hip again, courtesy of my Launch station. I'm listening to "An Inch An Hour" and really remembering what an amazing lyricist Gordon Downie is.

No struggletown no bemused Trudeau no solitary walks through vacant lots in moonglow ...

And now my station has moved on to the Human League's "(Keep Feeling) Fascination."

Heewig: keep feeling fascination, teem
Teem: *feels*
Heewig: *bass solo*
Teem: and says
Teem: will suffer

So it's my obligatory 15-minute afternoon break at work - I didn't take a 15-minute break this morning, so if I run a little long on this, that is why. It's all above board.

Weekend recap: Saturday I did everything I said I was ambivalent about doing. That is, shopping. And I can't list all of my purchases because some of the recipients of those purchases read this site ("Hi Mom!"). But I did restock on the Harry and David Skinny Moose Munch, so I am a happy camper.

The clerk girl at Harry and David just could not shut up about my hair, too. I handed her my debit card, which masquerades as a Visa card in its spare time, and she said, "You changed your hair." Because a photo of me is on the card, and it was taken about 18 months ago. And yes, I have changed my hair since then.

So I said: "Highlights."

And she said, "WOW, REALLY? Your hair looks so good with those highlights it's very pretty and everyone I talk to says that they have highlights and they're so much better than overall color"

Then I said: "They are."

And then she said, "WOW, you know, did you get your highlights done recently because I've heard that you don't have to get them done very much if you don't want to and they still look okay because yours look GREAT."

And then I said: "It's been about seven months, yeah."

Then SHE said, "I want to grow mine out because my natural color isn't very different than my other color and then I want to get my hair cut and then get highlights."

So I said: "Cool!"

And then I left.

I went into L'Occitane and was decidedly unimpressed by everything and thought just about everything smelled like rotting flesh. So ... didn't buy anything there.

I did buy painted naked people playing cards at MAC. They're super cool. I might have to take photos of them and post them here. Then I'll be a purveyor of porn!

Edit: Duh. I forgot to recap Sunday.

So on Sunday I had an allergy attack and felt bluh and did laundry and ate lots of stuff and then my computer gorked out and I watched television until hitting the sack at 9.

The Tragically Hip...aren't they an American Hip Hop band?

I think so. I think they do that song "Move, Bitch, Get Out the Way."
