nailpolish

a bed made of audrey hepburns.

my faith in frankie by mike carey, marc hempel, & sonny liew.

what a strange little book this is. cute, but very strange. the main character is totally on the make for dudes; i mean, she's prowling, & is sexually aggressive-- & lo, woah & behold, that isn't a bad thing! yeah, yeah, if you pay attention to the writer, it isn't a big surprise. & if you pay attention to what it says on the spine- vertigo- it isn't a shocker either. it is packaged pretty much the same as any minx book, though, which is where i got tripped up. anyhow, i am glad! teenagers should be reading about sex. besides that, it sort of has a god-for-one idea that would have been right at home in a lucifer comic; makes me wonder if this was a b-plot from said comic that never saw the light. there were a few moments i didn't think should be there (guy whipping it out at the end; threat of rape, really? come on now.) & i didn't think the ending actually had enough build up, enough guns in the first act, so to speak, but over-all, i think mike carey really has a knack for books meant to be marketed to teenage girls: see also the re-gifters. i should also mention that the kindly ones style are really gets me.

now i've got to go try to make an appointment to get the computer fixed.

i hate when jenny goes out of town.

prince & sinead o'connor are lying to you. it is not nearly that exciting to be "single"! the lyrics should be more like "since you've been gone i can watch tv in the dark," which...wait, what? nothing compares 2 u is actually a sad song? then it isn't sad enough! okay, i'm not really broken up. just fucking bored. crashing on the couch & drinking wine isn't fun by yourself. oh, okay, maybe it is. stop interrupting me & ruining my point! there is a new bar around the corner from me, "the dram shop" that i sort of want to check out, but i haven't quite gotten to the point where going to a bar by myself is the option of choice. lets see, since mike's game was canceled today (right? canceled! when i need it most!) all i've done is...make dumplings, & go to the gym. at the gym basically all i did was sit on the elliptical machine watching blade: trinity. which i own, but have never seen. i got it for jenny for a surprise holiday one year; she really likes ryan reynolds, & so i didn't ever discover that blade 3 is actually kind of decent. i thought she just had the hots for that guy (she does). anyhow. so now i'm done with that, & the computer screen is stupid. i hate looking at you, dork-face! i did have a couple of strokes of genius today, things for my upcoming game. tuck those away. aces up my sleeves. you know how we do.
