they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

notes to self and other observations.

when on hold with t-mobile, don't expect to enjoy the wait. because they need to change the volume and selection of their 'hold" music. badly.

just because a film gets a nod from sundance doesn't mean it's good. so, don't watch "dreamland." enough said.

sometimes, unlike being on hold with a cell phone company, the wait is worth it. take the new addition to the nelson, for example. it's amazing. architcturally brilliant and simple and sleek. sure, it's a strange marriage next to the pillared nelson, but it says something so real about art and life and society. totally worth an 8-year wait.

listening to an album once isn't enough. Cassadaga by bright eyes didn't impress the first go-round. but now, it's a favorite.

shiraz makes their paninis in the morning. so don't request anything special - like no mayonnaise. there is nothing they can do about that.

on another shiraz note, what the heck is with the "art" adorning the walls. i'm all for freedom and self expression, but i do have taste. shiraz, do you?

and finally, opting to run at the gym on a hot, humid day sounds like a good choice. until the gym has a relative humidity level of 98 percent and smells like, well, uh, you can guess what it smells like. you would think a large chain of gyms would have success with ventilation and air conditioning. well, you'd be wrong.

    Yeah, not the one I'm thinking you go to. We hit it at 5 a.m. and it's hot and humid in there then, too. However, it doesn't smell at that hour, so consider that for future reference. :)

    The ladies' room is where I go to cool off. Blech.

    They've only ever had issues with their ventilation there, though. However, they have started playing alternative music in the a.m. instead of really bad, heavy-based rap music which makes me a happy girl!

    Again, this only applies if you're going to the place I think you're going. :)

    Isn't Dreamland about the pornstar John Holmes?

    Awesome.

    i don't think that's what dreamland is about. although, i only made it through 30 minutes of it before i turned it off.

    and, faith, probably same place you're thinking of - but perhaps a different location.

    Ohhh. I didn't know there were TWO smelly ones in the area. God, this morning it was unbearable hot in the one by my house. With it being as sticky as it is outside today, it really sucked, and that was at 5 a.m.! I can only imagine how crappy it would be to hit it after work instead of before. Bleh!

    I hit the ol behemoth Lifetime Fitness out south and it's crazy clean ... and intimidatingly vast.

    Oh, and on a completely unrelated note, why do we have to get within 10 ft. of the giant rock and dirt-bearing trucks to be able to read the sign that says "stay back 300 ft., not responsible for damage". Does that even make sense? not to mention ... a football field back? seriously? okay. I'm done.
