I've Been a Bad, Bad Girl... err... Blogger

(Does anyone else think the name of Fiona Apple's new album is ridiculous? I'm not even sure it would fit inside a tweet. The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do. I still can't remember it without looking it up. One of my friends was kind enough to share it with me and, well, upon my initial listen, I found it to be strange as fuck. Maybe it will grow on me. I mean, I did derive some enjoyment from the lyric "I'm a hot knife, he's a pat of butter." I think, mostly, I'm just not hip enough to "get it." Alas.)

So, um, hi. How are you? Your hair looks nice. Have you lost weight? You've totally lost weight, haven't you. No? Well you look fabulous.

I've been pretty MIA around these parts. I know it's everyone's biggest pet peeve when a blogger apologizes for being gone. Like anyone should be so narcissistic as to think that anyone cares. Well, whatever. I consider you guys my friends (at least, those of you who I've had interactions with. Those of you who lurk... come out of the shadows and say hi!) So, uh, sorry for being gone. I've been a bit overwhelmed with life. As you may recall, I volunteer-coach softball in the summer, and it seems to have taken over my existence. I'm also juggling the busy season at work, family obligations, social obligations, attempting to train for a 5K, and the fact that all of my creative endeavors (including this blog) have been pushed to the back burner. It kills me to not have time to write. (As I think I said in my last post. Which I don't even remember. Because it was a small eternity ago.)


Anyway, this post is really just going to serve the purpose of me blowing the cobwebs off of this proverbial popsicle stand, because I've got all sorts of things to discuss. For example, Vegas, finally. And after this weekend, I will be able to tell you about my first 5K experience. And then, if you're lucky, I'll start randomly hitting post on all the things in my drafts folder and you won't have any idea what the fuck is going on because some of those are three to four months old.

Hold on to your hats, everyone.

Exhibit A, re: hats.

Exhibit B, re: hats.

I've learned something about myself over the past year or so. And that thing is this: I really enjoy wearing awesome/ridiculous/awesomely ridiculous hats.

How have you been? What are your views on hats? Or the new Fiona Apple album? Or life in general?

I love that you're back! Yay!

And I like hats. And blogs. And you!

chimes said...

Also ... I must see this new album.

And fucking hit post dammit. Who cares. I put shit out there allll the time that isn't spectacular, but it's stuff that I like and I wrote, and I hit publish. Plus, I know that only you, Steph and a handful of my blends read my blog anyway.

I love the title of this, and the hats.

I remember the old Fiona Apple album that everyone just shortened to "When The Pawn," but the entire thing was a prose poem aka jumble of words that I actually memorized and still remember because I'm that fucking cool... and by cool I mean lame.

I have no idea about this new album. I'll have to listen to it.

HI WELCOME BACK! I did miss you. I'm sorry you're swamped and everything, and I hope you have time for writing again soon - whether it's here or in a journal or whatever.

Good luck at the 5K this weekend and can't wait to see all the random drafted posts.

Happy Friday, pretty lady!

YAY, I love our fedora pictures! :) I haven't listened to the new Fiona Apple album, I'm not sure if I want to. haha! ;)

Damn, Lauren beat me to pointing out that this new album's title is a lot shorter than that of her second album. But i went to the trouble of looking it up, so here it is anyway: "When the Pawn Hits the Conflicts He Thinks Like a King What He Knows Throws the Blows When He Goes to the Fight and He'll Win the Whole Thing 'Fore He Enters the Ring There's No Body to Batter When Your Mind Is Your Might So When You Go Solo, You Hold Your Own Hand and Remember That Depth Is the Greatest of Heights and If You Know Where You Stand, Then You Know Where to Land and If You Fall It Won't Matter, Cuz You'll Know That You're Right"


Yeah, i don't find the new album enjoyable at all. I will always love Tidal and she's had a few good tracks since then, but i feel like now she's making music that's extremely expressive and unique but not very fun to listen to.

My favorite thing about going to In N Out with you was when I asked for a hat and you were all "WAIT - THERE'S HATS?!?!?" and your eyes got all big and beautiful and excited like it was Christmas, only better because HATS!
