I was happy, since I spent the bartime w/ single ladies and someone played "Fuck You" on the jukebox

i was solo but i went to a queer experimental film screening that was pretty cool. the bus ride back was amazing, this big singalong (like, seriously almost half the bus) broke out - "rolling in the deep" followed by "gin and juice" followed by erykah's "on and on" (!). so LA was my valentine yesterday.

i also COMPLETELY UNINTENTIONALLY HONEST wore a red shirt yesterday

I had a fairly exasperating workday and then crashed out at home by myself.

went out to dinner monday night - not intentionally for v day, just cause we hadn't in a while.

last night we just watched a movie and did some schoolwork, but oddly enough valentine's day seems so much less important in a relationship than it did when i wasn't in one.

shrug.

sidenote - lou and also rev, i guess - have you heard l31f's new Seajunky tape? the first half was up on soundcloud and it's really good. Mostly beats, iirc.

yes! and there's a second part i might like even better, but it wasn't up for very long.

I've never celebrated Valentine's Day. Last night I drank wine and got my rocks off regarding Dave Gahan's crotch sheathed in tighty-whiteys in Depeche Mode 101.

this should count as community service or something

"got my rocks off" means "I wrote about it."

I guess procrastinating with writing now qualifies as "edging"

Rev/lou - is the 'second' part the Treehugger Side B of the cassette, or that random 'Ice' track that was 14 minutes long that is like the 'extra' part of Side A?

Somewhere between Fergie and Jesus (Alex in Montreal), Wednesday, 15 February 2012 22:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

it was the "Ice" that I heard.

tabes weren't you threatening to come east in Feb?

and Rev, you in NY in 3 weeks or so?

Literal Facepalms (Dr Morbius), Thursday, 16 February 2012 18:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

No, the NYC trip fell through. :(

The Reverend, Thursday, 16 February 2012 19:18 (2 years ago) Permalink

stevie, that haircut is really good, but kind of 4-5 seasons ago, imho. also, i dunno, maybe it's my DIY snobbery, but do you REALLY need to go to a barber to have the sides of your head shaved? that just strikes me as lazy.

morbz, as far as NYC trip, i'm taking two classes right now, doing some construction work, writing a bunch, and....in other words, no. i actually don't plan on coming east anytime soon, tbh.

ok... I'm looking at my lingering debt from last summer in Calif and thinking I might not go anywhere this year. (At least til the Democratic convention.)

bummer, Rev. I hope to get back to the PacNW in the next couple years.

Oh yeah, that place is good. Haven't been there for dinner in a long time, but they do an excellent brunch.

jaymc, Thursday, 16 February 2012 21:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah it was cool! we kind of just skimmed this big list of restaurants listed on open table that had prix fixe menus for v day and was the one that best fit in terms of location, food, price, ability to get reservation etc

their brunch looked dope tho just looking at the regular menu tho

I've been thinking that recently how I love Andersonville, Uptown, Rogers Park, etc. but the commutes are too long to the Loop. Especially from A-ville. But I miss the neighborhoodiness and the "grit" I guess.

I like that area too!

That remarkably horrible Shit Chicagoans Say video said something like "Go to Andersonville? What? And dodge all the lesbians??" which really annoyed me b/c: 1. That's not how fucking jokes work and 2. "Andersonville = lesbians" hasn't been true since before I moved here in 2004.
