Our weekend starts on Wednesday.

It's Friday! Yay! After work today I'll be heading to Worcester with Keanu in tow to meet up with my family, who are picking up Jesse at the Boston airport. Yeah! Reunion! It's only been five days, and we talk everyday all the time,'s like your best friend is gone after months of looking to your side and seeing him stand right there next to you.

Last night, Erica and Eko started their adventure to Connecticut for the weekend, and Keanu and I hung out eating dinner, packing, and snuggling on the couch. Also, we watched this amazing movie, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, which I had wanted to see when it first came out, but never did. I absolutely loved it. It's a true story about a man with Locked-In Syndrome - where a person is totally cognizant of everything going on, but he's paralyzed head-to-toe. He learned to communicate via the only thing he could move - his left eyelid. And he wrote a book. That's all you need to know; go watch it. Has anybody else seen it?

And now, I give you my Friday Playlist. Apparently Damone came out with an album last December, and I did not know. Probably because it was self-released...but I bought it last night and I've been listening. It's okay so far - there are a couple of awesome songs, though different. The first song, which I think is the "single," is quite boresville and should not have been chosen to open an album. Those are just my two cents, though.

This City - The Matches
Distorting a Code - Spinnerette
For You To Notice - Dashboard Confessional (MTV2 Unplugged version)
One Fine Day - The Chiffons
Conquer Me - Damone (kind of Cure-like, current fave song on the album)
Lovefool - The Cardigans (YUP, I listened to this today)
Chinese - Lily Allen
Perfect & True - Ryan Adams
Head On - Pixies
El Scorcho - Weezer

Have a great weekend!


  1. I LOVE "Lovefool". Everytime I hear it, it always takes me back to the nineties, for some reason to a holiday I went on to Belgium with my family. Odd...

  2. Oh I love Diving Bell, have you read the book? It's a very quick read but incredibly moving.
