lets be honest

we tried our best with lorne, but that little dollar store plant was infested with some sort of gnat, and chloe ate it (the plant, not the gnat). jack ate it too. tried to dig it up once as well.

today when we went to the dollar store, they had new plants. bigger, healthier, watered within the last week, Fresh. so i got three. two snake plants with the straight up spiky leaves, one is dark green, the other is lighter green with yellow racing stripes on each leaf. those got my stone collection.

the third went into my favortite record bowl, i have to remember how i made it. it was round, the wrinkles had been pressed to the vinyl completely. anywho . . . it got another plant. i have no idea what it is, all i know is that it has dark leaves so it should be happy in my indirect light. to keep with the hip theme, this one is off center in its draining dish and sits on marble gems with big iridescent marbles piled in the saucer. it also has a scattering of glow in the dark rocks in the dirt to make it interesting at night.

so, here, of course, are pictures (of course) of our three new babies, collectively known as the lornettes.

long ago a friend of mine downloaded and burned every episode of farscape, save the movie ending.

they never worked before. i just found a codec pack that made them all work. i'm so in love with myself.

what does it say

i feel the same joy in bono's voice and words when listening to "vertigo" that i used to (still do, actually) listening to "out of control", plus a specil little tingle at the "no on gets hurt" bit.

i've always loved him. he is the only man i can ever imagine being with that isn't doc. i can't help it, though i'll admitt i don't try too hard.

another stupid question

how does the used from amazon work? will i be contacted separately about shipping? i have to have these two CDs that will cost me $2.74, so i'm not concerned with the postage . . . they are worth my blood.

finding a song from one each of the records in question just made me all the more desperate, and i finally found them used. since they are both way out of print, and only one was put in CD, new is expensive or impossible. i had both records, i suspect my mom took them long ago, she was a real music nazi and both bands talk a lot about love and lust. then i got the cassettes and literally wore them out listening to them in my boom box next to me in the front seat of my 71 dodge dart. i would drive around pittsburgh getting intentionally lost and just singing and being happy. both of the songs i found have put me in perma grin status, i must own them. and soon i will.

oh, and the CDs are (and you will be able to hear an audible groan from kam316):

Then Jerico - First (The Sound of Music)
Cause and Effect - Another Minute

then jerico . . . i'll be able to say more once my tepid memory is restored with hearing the CD. cause and effect were a depeche mode sound-alike band, and seem to be in the R&B category now, though i haven' t heard anything past their third record)

now i'm asking people in england to look at an 80s con for posters for me. i am sick. maybe i'll just paint pink polka dots on everything like my cool friend down the street coral did in high school. i've got the total 80s haircut. my fashion has always been deplorable, i'm about up to the 80s now. give me black capri tights with lace at the bottom!!! i want neon green mesh, dammit!!

doc is afraid. very very very afraid.

six songs i'm digging

this is a tell and tag thing, i tell then tag then the tagged tell.

i'm telling, that is at least half. we'll see about the tagging when i'm done.

1. the motive - then jerico
2. farewell to arms - cause and effect
3. alison moyet - where hides sleep
4. belouis some - imagination
5. adam ant - desperate but not serious
6. nik kershaw - the riddle

this is the tag part, so . . . tag, you're it.
