a quick post to help me procrastinate

i am so over packing that i want to vomit geyser style. do you see how i'm living? it's an effing pigstye.



enough with the bile. here's something funny. well, kinda'. this morning i purchased a salad, a diet soda and a bag of cat litter at larry's/metro and i thought to myself "only tampons, chocolate and a face mask could make this more stereotypical."

i considered picking up some "just for men" hair dye to even the score but the line moved too fast.

what else? i've discovered that don knotts movies calm me down. those and "desperately seeking susan". i don't exactly know what it means when you find madonna soothing but i now own the "susan" dvd.

also, the book thief wasn't bad, i'm addicted to rice cakes (specifically and inexplicably the ones that taste like burnt toast) and i cannot stop watching this. the fireworks get me every time.

that is all. back to packing.

shit eating grins

i came across this while i was packing this afternoon.



from the cleveland daily banner circa 2000.

i'm talkin' 'bout flea market

leff and i went to the punk rock flea market today.



it helped make this be even further imprinted upon my grey matter.

um, don't click that last link unless you want the most ridiculous song in the world stuck in your head. you've been warned.

the reasons i have been (and will continue to be) absent

hey, peeps!





i thought i'd drop by real quick like and explain a few of these "rl things" that are keeping me away. the big deal this week has been my inability to move. like, my legs and torso. yeah, i threw my back out again. super happy fun times esp when you consider that...

we're moving. like, the whole of casa rakkaleff and not just our legs and torsos.

hang on, don't freak out! we're staying in seattle. in fact, we're staying in the same building but are, like the jeffersons, movin' on up to the top floor where there's more room and a semblance of a view.

so what does this mean? you guessed it! posting will continue to be sporadic at best until maybe the middle of april. i'll still be doing the daily thing at suspect and fugitive but they won't be the big projects that i'd hoped to have started by now. sigh...

now...do any of you have any spare boxes laying around?

i'll be taking a short break but first an update!

there's a lot going on in rl right now that needs my attention so i'll be away from this blog for a while. (a week? maybe longer? i'm not sure. sorry.)

i'll still be posting daily at suspect and fugitive though so you'll be able to see more things like this hostess pie filling during gpiss downtime.



anyway, before i live in meatspace for a while, let me get you up to speed. on friday n and i caught the george legrady lecture at spl.



seattle residents will more than likely be familiar with his "making the invisible visible" installation at the main library.

tech people, be sure to check out the data about the project on his site (sorry, no direct link.). it's really interesting stuff.

how about some library atmosphere?





hellla ghosts, batman!



leff got us zipcar last week!



we used it for the first time on sunday for a quick trip to target




(here's a video of the cartscalator, katty kat.)

and the northgate taco truck.



damn but driving (ok, being copilot) is nice. i'd never own a car again but zipcar is an incredibly convenient option to have.

right, time to get back to the real world. (true story!) (ed aside: why can i not find the opening credits to "the real world" (san fran??) where that one guy sings "truuue stor-ray" all nasal like. interwebs, you have disappointed me.)
