seriously, though.

I can't think of anything interesting to post. I've just been watching my stories, lounging about, playing with my hair, that sort of thing. I do have to leave for class in ten minutes, which means I should probably put some form of pants on. Today is the first sunny day we've had all week. Kurt is coming up to visit me tomorrow, all day long, and Friday night we're making fettuccine and watching Wet Hot American Summer. Saturday is a house show, chez lui, and my good friend kelsi, aka jammypants is playing. One of my favorite things to listen to to cheer me up, ever. I like how she makes music. I know this entry is a big xangaey with the narrative of my uneventful life but that's all I've got right now.

also, i kind of want a new screen name. any suggestions? i was thinking ashley the kid but several people have told me how stupid that is.

I don't know most of these songs.

Here’s how it works:
Open your iTunes/etc. library.
Press shuffle.
Press play.
For each question, type the song that plays. One song per question–new question, new song.
No Cheating!

Song of Myself; 6

A child said What is the grass? fetching it to me with full hands
How could I answer the child? I do not know what it is any more than he.

I guess it must be the flag of my disposition, out of hopeful green stuff woven.
