Obscure band plug o' the day: Cibo Matto. Two Tokyo girls done good. Pleasingly eclectic style, though their first album is all about food.
The last time I talked to my mother on the phone, she accused me of saying the word "problematic" upwards of ten times. hmph! Well, I certainly hope my vocabulary hasn't become... annoying.

I'm ordering a Lord Dunsany novel. And the Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook, written with paranoid freaks like me in mind.

Me and my healthy paranoia- together forever.

I'm still trying to figure out what kind of person I want to be, what kind of life I want to live. I don't really know... I lack purpose.

It's hard to find girls who have the right mix of qualities I'm looking for... I need intelligence, assertiveness, sensitivity, kindness, honesty, good taste, love of music, and physical attractiveness. A good sense of humor and a dash of ambition are important, too.

Oh, and Chuck's marrying a Chinese dude.
I don't understand it either.
my mom says you are kinky,
