glimmers of glass



every now and then, i remember that i really, really like philip glass. then i go on a listening rampage. (what reminded me today was mental_floss.)

the reason i ever listened to him in the first place was because i had a job which compelled my formally-trained-in-classical-music boss to repeatedly talked about how she couldn’t stand him. never having heard of him prior, i was intrigued twofold: 1, because i was curious to know why my boss despised him so and 2, because, contradictory to that, every description i had read of him sounded fascinating to my weird, avant-garde-ly inclined mind.

so i listened. and i loved.

everything is yellow

but not my pee. promise.
this is the bathroom at my favorite starbucks–on third & market in sf.
i like to go there in the mornings before internship. all the employees are super-friendly. this alone already makes you want to tip them but in case for some reason you didn’t, they further encourage you to do so by making a sort of polling system out of the tip jars. at each register there are 2 different boxes in which to place your tip. each box is labelled along some sort of theme so, with your tip, you can vote for which you think is the better option. for example, last wednesday i had to choose between “scrabble” and “clue” which was the toughest decision i have had to make in a long time.
