"yeah you're great, you're just part of this lifetime of dreaming
that extends to the heart of this long summer feeling
all the history of wars i invent in my head
little lou, ugly jack, prophet john

what a waste, i could've been your lover. what a waste, i could've been your friend. "
little lou, ugly jack, prophet john - belle and sebatian featuring norah jones.

wonderful. feeling pretty introspective today. like the mood of this song. lyrics are beautiful.

shake me down

it smells like snow. little too warm out for that though... probably more bone chilling rain. on a more exciting note just took a listen to some new stuff from cage the elephant. i didn't recognize them at first - slightly different direction from their last album? can't put a finger on what but something just feels different, and i really like it. the new album is coming out in january and i simply cannot wait to hear more.

shake me down:
band is giving away a different song, 20 24, on their website.

things that made me happy this weekend

1. i'm blowing up dee's spot. she made a wonderful dinner friday night for pom wonderful. i don't think she wrote about this yet BUT LOOK AT THESE BROWNIES! it's an amazing chocolateness, topped with homemade pomegranate ice cream, homemade pomegranate delicious sauce (so-so-so good!), and pomegranate seeds! think she's going to post the recipe later this week.

2. it was seventy degrees out on saturday! how awesome is that?

3. i went to see the baby of the family swim in her college swim meet this weekend. our parents came and my mother handed me a tupper-ware of MOM MADE vegetable soup. i ate it all before i took a picture though.
