Right now I'm thinking...
a) I want to own so many books they can be arranged by rainbow.
b) I love people with quirks and I wish more people could develop some, or at least, one. It would make them so much more interesting.
c) I want to develop a taxidermy collection. I currently have an antelope head, but it's wooden so it doesn't count.
d) Stacy asked me to paint reindeers on her wardrobe but I said I thought zebras would look better.
e) I knitted for hours last night when I should have been doing work but I don't really feel guilty.
f) I made myself a cranberry turkey sandwich for dinner last night and lunch just now, but thought it didn't taste as good as it should be because I had nobody to share it with.
g) I have an intense crush on Jason Schwartzman and I chuckle to myself on the bus when I watch him hosting Cribs as Louis XVI in Versailles on my ipod.
h) I regret not taking up French language classes when I first entered university.
i) I realize I have never shared much personal details on this blog. I guess I'm quite a private person.
j) I am insanely proud of the fact that I do not own an account on any social networking website (i.e. facebook, myspace, etc.).
k) There is constantly a conversation going on in my head and I was surprised when I found out that that is not the case with other people.
l) My most recent obsession is with rooftops. I'll look at pictures of rooftops and gaze at them wistfully for a long time.
m) My other obsession is with wallpapers.
n) I really ought to go back and work on my essays right now.
I've been bopping and hopping around, with Vampire Weekend's A-Punk blaring away, on the laptop and in my head. It's been playin', playin', playing.
And here, they play for La Blogotheque
Anyway, one of the reason I'm really liking the band is how they pay homage to Wes Anderson, from the futura font on their covers to the videos. Some reviewers have likened them to an aural take on an Anderson film. I'd say I agree.
As an aside, these La Blogotheque videos always fill me with this most wondrous mix of love and envy. Paris is truly beautiful I have to say, it's almost as much a character in the videos as the musicians and the songs they play. Just that opening sequence where the guy strides across the screen, atop the low crumbling brick wall giving us a glimpse of the roofscape, harmonica in hand, filled me with a most painful sort of yearning. Oh well...
