so, i am pretty stoked i was able to contribute another pep talk for other allison’s noexno project this year. head over and check it out if you haven’t already! if you want to dig into the archives, you can also check out my pep talk from 2012. so vintage now.
a played a lot of dress up last month.
october kicked off with richard’s “fantasy birthday party” (think “nerdy” not “dirty”), which pretty much turned into a game of thrones party.
i went as king robert. being pillow-fat was weird. that sword was awesome.
the next evening i severely injured myself. i’d say “long story,” but it’s actually a short story: i jumped over a hedge and fractured my foot.
this meant the remaining october dress up featured a cast and crutches, which came in handy for my next get-up: kerri strug from the 1996 olympics.
i then went not once, but twice, as the tooth fairy:
and rounded things out a little more traditionally as holly golightly for my final dress up of the month:
only two of these outfits were for halloween activities. i’m glad i have friends who like any excuse for a costume party.
full of hearts and rainbows. because i successfully transferred my domain name from my blogger account to my wordpress one. welcome to the new connectconnectconnect.com! now, to test if it works directly with rss.
and, despite the aforementioned “internet godess” skills, keep your fingers crossed it will work as smoothly for my other url (so far, no good, but i’m still basking in the goddess-ness of one successful transfer).
i have a tendency to listen to songs on repeat. i’m not talking a few times a day, or even a set of songs over and over. i am talking about one song, on repeat, for eight hours while i’m at work, for the course of a run, while i’m falling asleep at night.
i hear it, it gets in my head, and i don’t get tired of it. it goes on loop repetitively, until my neighbors and friends want to tear their hair out (i’m guessing, on the latter).
here are some of the songs that have received the top honor of being consistently on repeat:
summertime sadness (mk lee foss cold blooded remix) – lana del rey
this is my current repeated jam.
i feel better – hot chip
house sparrow – xiu xiu
there are multiple xiu xiu songs that have gone on the ol’ repeat, but this one has the most plays on my itunes currently, so it earned the honorary xiu xiu spot in this list.
another radio song – okkervil river
little pills – tech n9ne featuring k.a.b.o.s.h.
