I'm all over the place trying to clean for my mom's stay. The cleaning has been swell, given that the second floor of our apartment is like a sweltering jungle. I need to get a mini-air condish for that STAT. I digress. Mother and I have some fun plans, and she's excited to hang with my girlfriends and be a "cool mom." She's very interested in the fact that I eat tofu and hummus, and therefore I plan on showing her the organic Brooklyn way. Ha. She gets in tonight and then I'll probably cook her some tofu and vegetables and we'll settle in for a good chick flick.
Tomorrow morning my mom and a couple of my girlfriends are venturing to Long Island for a covert mission...that may or may not involve something white. (!!!) Then probably Baby Mama.
In other news, I can't believe it's almost the end of April. What?! I'm excited for May, though - Bamboozle, friends in town, Motion City's WEEK in New York, Tegan&Sara concierto, my brother's college graduation and PARTY, and some quality Jesse time, of course!
Let's do a report on my non-internet media intake: I'm reading Edith Wharton's The Age of Innocence, which is excellent. It's one of those classics (first book written by a woman to win the Pulitzer Prize) that I always wanted to read, but never got around to. Also, I had to read Wharton's Ethan Frome in high school and I hated it. I should probably give it another try. I'm listening to Damone. I'm so making a post about this band, though I know very little about them, and that's okay. They rock and my next muxtape will surely include a song off their last album. And finally, I'm watching: television has fully returned, though apparently ALL ON ONE NIGHT. Srsly? Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy, 30 Rock, The Office, and LOST? I skipped Grey's, but everything else was pretty stellar.
Also in May...it's almost summer. Which means my inner nerd emerges as the comic book-based movies roll out. Iron Man...Hulk...(cross-cameos!!) and...AND...
Yes, Christian, you are! You are!
YOU ARE BATMAN.
