I never was much of a fan of Saturday nights spent alone at home. I know, I know.. Im twenty five years old and thats old enough to not care about ‘date night’ spent in solidarity. Still there is a small twitch somewhere behind my eyeballs every time. So after making the conscious decision to make light of unattractive situations, I started to wipe out my cupboards. Then… SALUT-TOI !!! I came across a couple of those mini bottles of kahlua that sometimes come attached to 26ers of stoli. It appears I had stashed a few away (Probably in the midst of a martini stupor.) behind a bag of macaroni. My evening has since taken a turn for the brighter side. Sipping hot coffee strong with kahlua, smoking out my window, just me and Sophie B. Hawkins. Damn, I wish I was her lover.
Three of my favorite things since comming to the island have been: 1.urban wildlife, 2. documentaries, and 3. love ballads from the nineties. Ive crossed paths with all three today.
1. I was getting into the tanning bed earlier when I felt something tickle my foot. There it was… the biggest brown motherfucking spider I have ever seen. EVER SEEN! Huge…. like half the palm of my hand and Im not kidding. OH SICK! I stomped it promptly. Then a couple of filthy raccoons made their presence known outside my house. This morning while I was waiting for the bus I saw a crow attack another crow to get this food or something off the road. Then while the crows were fighting a squirrel darted out and took the food for himself. Im not sure if the crows noticed or not.
2. I rented the new princess Diana documentary tonight. Havent watched it yet. Not sure why I rented it either. I never really liked Diana. Kinda a camera hound wasnt she? And I always kinda resented the weeks upon months of news coverage of her death totally overshadowing Mother Teresa’s passing.
3. Just made a new playlist today. This wont compare to Diandra’s, but its what Ive been rocking all night.
