we'll all have to move to california. or at least west philly.

grrrr. two and a half years now that i've lived in this city. still having trouble feeling like i'm much more sense of [being part of a] community than i was back when...

eh...don't even have the energy to 'plain about that now.

even, my roommate disappeared again - to maui for ten days. wish he wouldn't do that. so i'm all alone again. nobody to cook to or play music at besides myself.

haven't burned down the apartment yet, but not for lack of trying - i did manage to fill it with smoke by burning some ghee this evening. lesson learned, woks heat supafast, don't turn your back. opened all the windows and flapped the doors, but still had to go out for a walk and call alyssa and my mom and buy some tofu. (that was nice at least.)

dinner take two was less dramatic but more depressing. by the end it was so miserable it couldn't decide if it wanted to be curry or soup. tastes like misery. blech. and loneliness.

at least i don't have to worry about cleaning up the dishes/kitchen for anybody else but me.

(ultimately though, seems, whenever matthew goes away, the apartment gets even cleaner.)

the policy that i'm basically not required to accomplish anything else during my (three-day) work-week gettin' necessary.

oscar report: leo wins - leo gets a ridiculous amount of love. 2nd place: abigail breslin. saw keith urban for a split-second, sitting next to his wifey. dntel in car ad. aberfeldy in coke ad. ("summer's gone") makes me think that dr. pepper totally missed out on being ahead of the indie-rock soda-commercial curve when they turned dow amanset's custom jingle. not to mention "warm panda cola."

who puts me in the magic position?
