Shine, Shine, Shine

This is what I dreamed about last night:
  • Orcs
  • Ammonite fossils
  • Giant aquariums
 Rather interesting.

Tonight I am working wax into my newborn dreads, making myself smell like a goddamn hippie, and drinking a fancy bottle of wine that my work gave me for being awesome (!). I start training to be a server next week and I'm really excited; hopefully it will mean oodles more cash.
My camera is on hiatus right now or else I would post pictures of my teensy kale sprouts that have come up in just two days. Four of them already! I planted carrots and New Zealand spinach too, but I have never grown either of those before, so it remains to be seen how they will fare.
Learning lots of new songs lately. This one is next on my list, though my sister recommended it to me ages ago...

DeVotchKa - Strizzalo

Also Opa Tsupa! (Which is absurdly difficult.)

Ah yes...I am also a little homesick, for certain people, and for the ocean and the rolling fog of the hills. I am really looking forward to getting to visit again in December, or earlier, if I am lucky.

The music that comes out of Austin makes me drool and sends shivers up my spine. Last week I think I saw three or four shows in a row that were just fucking fantastic, and on all of those nights there were three other bands playing shows that I would have loved to have gone to. Not enough hours in the day, I say! Adam and I have been house-sitting for Tom Bombadil (Ralph White) and Goldberry (Amy Annelle) this last week and it has been magical as always. Spent the last two days at the Springs, fucking awesome, and now there is a big thunderstorm blowing in. I love this city.

My sweetie pie Seamus!

Lots of lazy days here lately. It finally hit 100 and MY. GOD. is it hot. I think the humidity has also risen so the heat index is at like 108 or 110 and it definitely feels it. Lots of staying inside in the air conditioning. I want to go swimming but it's too much to even bike down there in the heat these days!
