Margaret Cho Hearts Little Britain


B and I were recently turned onto the hilarious BBC sketch comedy show Little Britain, which you must bump to the top of your queue if you haven't seen the show yet. Like Margaret Cho, I have picked up a few of their catchphrases, like 'I Want That One.' Read her post here.

Edited to say that while Margaret Cho hearts Little Britain, I heart Margaret Cho. Her blog is entertaining, but more than that her writing conveys an openness and honesty that I admire. heart heart heart ; )

Landing at Terrastock


Listening to Brocade, the latest (2005) album by Landing (HIGHLY recommended) in my grey ol cube takes me back to the wide open expanses of New Mexican desert. After touching down at the Albuquerque Sunport, B and I packed up our rental and hit I-25 north to Santa Fe. We navigated through rush hour traffic as the sun dipped to the western horizons, intensifying the redness of the rocks on either side of the highway. Outside, commuters careened at high speeds, while we grooved along, lost in the trance of Landing's metronomic riffs and squelchy drones that matched the luminosity of the crisp hues of the winter sunset surrounding us.

I'm excited to bliss out in those grooves again at Terrastock 6 next weekend. You bet I'll be in front of stage 2 at 2:45 p.m. on April 22nd!

Facing Bullies


My hero for the day is Harry Taylor. I admire his conviction to tell one of the biggest bullies today exactly what he thinks of his atrocious behavior. (I also love the reactions on the faces of the people sitting near him.)

But, the blue meanie wasn't fazed. According to him, it's not unconstitutional to spy on Americans. It's also okay to send people to their death in a senseless war. And, there's no such thing as global warming, and if you're a government scientist who says otherwise, you better watch out.

...And on a completely different note, I'd like to extend my thanks to everyone who made my flirty thirty such a fun (and extended!) celebration. 30 has been great so far!
