still magic

It's been nearly two weeks since I made the move to 2640, and just as you promised it proves to be a magical little place to live.



I've been resisting the Twitter craze, but this is exactly the kind of thing Twitter was invented for. Man oh man I am definitely going to be completely addicted to checking his updates. He simply records things his 73-year-old dad says, such as:

"Your mother made a batch of meatballs last night. Some are for you, some are for me, but more are for me. Remember that. More. Me."

"Your brother brought his baby over this morning. He told me it could stand. It couldn't stand for shit. Just sat there. Big let down."


Merry Christmas

Thanks for the Christmas present; once I figured out Juliette Lewis was not in fact Cat Power I loved the show. And Chrissie Hynde (lead singer for the Pretenders) is a new favorite persona of mine.

Crazy Juliette Lewis:

Hardcore Chrissie Hynde:

mariachi on the mountain

Before I headed down from the mountains to live in the city, I went on a weekend camping trip with my brother, sister in-law, and her brother. Definite highlight of the trip was the fact that a full mariachi band was camping in the spot adjacent to ours (accordion and all.) It was pretty incredible, and so unbelievably appropriate for a McCleary camp out.
