Dear Weather Distribution Center:

OMG 75 today and 83 on Wednesday? I guess we never really do get spring here. Sometimes I forget that. Come to think of it, we got April in March (what with the Big Rain) and so...does that mean March got lost in the mail? Did we skip May? Are we in June already? Just please god don't make it cold as fuck this summer, okay? Last summer was horrible and if it happens again I will cry.


the farwing, who got no sleep because she's a total nitwit and also needs to put up curtains to keep out the light now that it's, you know, light out.

Also: I totally need to get, like, pruning shears so that I can prune the tree branches that are growing into my window. I mean, it's a really cute tree, and the branches are skinny but...growing into my window is a slight problem. I suppose I should ask S first, as it is her tree and all.

Also also: my new vintage Fluevog angels are so much narrower than my "current" angles. It is amazing: people actually used to make shoes narrow enough for my feet. I have yet another thing to add to my list of Frivolous Uses For Time Travel: buy shoes. (I will take a picture so you guys can see how narrow these shoes are in comparison. So crazy.)

I am planning to wear the new vintage boots next Friday because I will be stopping by the Fluevog store and I want to show them off. Plus, I will then gaze lovingly at my gold layaway angels. (I swear I didn't used to have such a shoe problem.)

And just because I'm thinking of it, a list of Things It Would Be Good To Have:

a whisk
pruning shears
a smaller, finer sieve
a set of tiny screw drivers like the folks in IT have-- my screw driver lust is unhealthy, I know

Dear Internets:

I am addicted to you. I think we should spend some time apart. But...that requires will power. Fuck.


I went to a Dropkick Murphys concert last night with [livejournal.com profile] doma and it was fun. We had gone to a bar with [livejouranl.com profile] twitch124 beforehand but we only had one drink each. Unlike everyone else on the green line last night. It was Public Transportation Theatre indeed. It went something like this:

Very Cheerful Very Drunk Guy to the entire train: "Are you having fun?"
farwing: "Of course! What's to prevent us?"
VCVDG: "Let me give you a high five for that answer!"
farwing: "Sure!"

VCVDG: "I'm from New Hampshire! We hang from subway polls like this!"
farwing: "Do you have different gravity in New Hampshire?"
VCVDG: "Yes! Because we don't have taxes!"
farwing: "Oh, is that what holds us down here?!"

VCVDG: "Are you really going to the Dropkick Murphys concert too?"
farwing: "Yes. Really."

His much more sober friend was all "yeah, he's kind of more sober than usual right now." which was...worrying. But at least he had a friend along.

The Dropkick Murphys concert was where all the drunks in Boston were headed last night, dontchaknow. And then we sold our extra tickets to drunk people outside the venue. One guy to whom we sold a ticket insisted I call him my Cousin Brian. Although I am half Irish, I do not actually have a cousin Brian. In fact....I don't think I am related to anyone named Brian.

Not My Cousin Brian: "Can I buy you a drink?"
farwing: "No, thank you. We are as un-sober as we wish to be."

Also: I am not used to being the tall one in my concert-going group. There were some assholes who insisted on sexydancing (with lots of elbows and a plastic cup of beer) right in our space. I had to glare holes at them a lot. doma was very good at sticking her elbows out defensively. There was also a guy behind us who was doing his fair share of glaring at them as well, which was nice.

Coming home from the T last night was...wet. Umbrellas are pretty much useless in Boston, but a nice long trench coat would be quite helpful, I think.

Yargh it is my sister Lou's birthday on Wednesday (yes, St. Patrick's Day) and I should really get a birthday package ready for her. Also remember to call her on the day. I'm probably not the worst sister ever, right? Just the flakiest.

People of Cambridge-

It is December 3rd and it is 65 degrees, sunny, and gorgeous out there. Why are so many of you wearing coats? I mean, I brought my sweatshirt (because it's Massachusetts and it might just decided to snow) but I didn't actually put it on.

bewilderedly yours,

You guys! I took the train to Central, went to Four Burgers (because I was contemplating homicide of perfectly nice folks), ate my yummy burger, and then walked back to Kendall. Such a lovely day out! I walk fast and so by the time I got back to work I was a little too warm.

Dear Red Line--

I actually like you very much. I was running late anyway, and this way I had an excuse: Late on Account of Train Delays. I'm not actually too fussed, there was only one breakfast for me to deploy, and I figure I can put up with train delays in exchange for not being required to have a license, let alone a car. So consider this a letter of encouragement. Everyone else is probably sending you hate mail.

(Also, I ran into [livejournal.com profile] bercilakslady and got to chat with her which was good.)

Dear bigots of Maine:

Ugh. Way to let the rest of New England (well, except for Rhode Island) down.


(P.S. Seriously, you're making me like New Hampshire. WTF.)

Murder by Death = awesome. Kind of a combo of big band and southern rock and...other stuff? I dunno...I had heard of them but had never heard them. Lead singer has an awesome voice. Would see again.

The Gaslight Anthem = still awesome. Also:

Dear Brian Fallon:

You always look like you are having all the fun and that makes me enjoy your concerts even more. (You were grinning so hard tonight it was pretty darn adorable.) Keep it up!

musical love and enthusiasm,

yeah...I'm gonna go to bed now.

Dear Weather Controlling Morons:

No, this is November. Don't you double check the labels on the months before you put them in the weather machine? Obviously not, you slackers. I want to speak to your supervisor. Bring me back my beautiful October and nobody gets hurt.

Happy Birthday to the incomparable and amazing Ms. [livejournal.com profile] mobledqueen!!!


Dear Split Enz:

Thank you for being such wacky/awesome/perfect get-my-butt-moving-in-the-morning music.


Dear Friday:

I love you. Even if I did wake up at 4:22 in the morning freezing cold and with cramps. I have a space heater and...who needs sleep, really?

somewhat exhausted love,

Dear Autumn:

Stay forever and never leave me again. Summer and Winter and Spring can go hang.

your biggest fan,

So...L'shanah tovah to all those that know what that means! I'll be going off to Lexington tonight through tomorrow for services with my parents and little brother. Be good and/or have fun!

Dear Massachusetts Drivers-

Now would be the time to turn on your goatfucking headlights.

(See how some of your fellow drivers have their lights on? It's probably just because they have newer models that make the headlights come on with the engine, so it's not like they are any better than you in a moral sense, but OMG it is DARK and CLOUDY out. TURN ON YOUR HEADLIGHTS!!!!!
