"Evil Bee" by Menomena
The lines “oh to be a machine, oh to be wanted - to be useful” always pop in my head every now and again. I’m surprised this my first time posting about this song.
Friend and Foe remains my favourite Menomena album, with Moms coming in a very close second.
"Don’t Swallow the Cap" The National
I’ve said it before, this band is home for me. Whenever things are overwhelming or I get that feeling in the pit of my stomach…that feeling that things are just a little off kilter, but I can’t figure out how/why ; I turn to them.
It’s incredibly cold now….makes me a bit sad. But I took the Rock Monster, who turns 2 next month, for a run through the park and it was amazing. Started thinking of my summer. Here’s how it went:
-Started Culinary School, which has been fucking awesome and quite possibly the best decision I have ever made. It’s a lot of work, especially combined with a full-time job, but so worth it.
-I got a promotion at my current job. Lots o’ work, Lots o’ stress. What’s that saying about mo’ money??
- I started cruising for …. I havent dated in like 5 years and this summer I met some really great people. It was a nice little boost to my confidence and just plain fun.
-Dated and ending things with someone, amicably. The amicably thing is the most important thing. In the past break ups were done out of anger for being fucked over. In this case, we fizzled out, I refused to settle and things ended without anyone being called scum…Progress!!!!
-I am currently talking with a very nice Swiss man whom I enjoy. He’s coming back to NYC next week and I cannot wait!!!!
- I lost 14.7 lbs!!!! Holy shit!!!!! So I started running and doing boot camp classes and fell in love with both. I can run for longer and it just makes me feel good, being able to do things I wasn’t able to before. I enjoy lifting weights and doing burpees, sprinting and frog jumps are pretty fun too.
It was a pretty good summer….seriously hoping for a good end to the year… We shall see!!! <3
