more where that came from

go look up that song title on itunes - it's by the miss dolly parton. i saw it on a target commercial. if you don't tap your feet and smile while you listen, you are a cold hearted bastard. really.
and i don't even like country music.

another recent favorite is the new tv on the radio album (dear science).
it is a goosebump inducing journey through all 16 or so songs...every one of them special in their own way.
buy (don't steal!) it now if you know what's good for you. (interesting fact: the lead singer is in the new movie "rachel getting married" - and you know that the role he plays is EXACTLY who he is in real life - and that makes me love the band even more!)

in other news, i spent some money today (around $50), but it was on food. meg came by for dinner for fiesta night (and SNL thursday weekend update watching). tomorrow i am trying my hand at asian. i SUCK at cooking that genre of food, but i'm determined to get better. tomorrow's menu: orange beef and scallion stir-fry with brown rice. i got the recipe from a great cookbook rebecca anne gave me for my birthday last year - i'll let you know how it goes!

and i've been thinking a lot about cheese fries lately. pasquale says east coasters don't get the "cheese fry phenomenon". that information disturbed me so greatly that i actually looked at ticket prices to go back to chicago so i can have portillo's, and then quickly realized what an a-hole i was. i can wait until christmas, damnit! i think.

(ps - KEV, COME HOME!)
(pps - gina is in labor - everybody think good thoughts for her and greg and the baby!!!!)
