Working on a very small piece for Idol. I'm over the prompt, over that band, that lyric, the strange and compelling dichotomy of so many of Iron&Wine's songs. What are they doing now? What happened to our little neofolk wave on these shores? Anyway, yes, a small piece because my brain box is filled to overflowing with Wedding. So close now! Putting the final spit and polish on the thing and that's exciting. I'm on a crash nerve diet and that's okay, as long as I get enough protein. I'm really happy/relieved to have used the wedding as an excuse to take off this pesky post-meno 15 pounds. I feel like myself again. My clothes fit again, my joints don't hurt, my gut is calm, and no more headaches from over-indulging in sugar. Plus now I have those older woman yoga arms, all bicep and sinew and jutting shoulder ball and I kind of like that.
Found a new-to-me writer and I'm really into her! Sarah Moss. I read Ghost Wall but am going to pick up a few more titles after the holidays. In real book format. I don't care for the e-reader, at all. Has anyone read this slim story? Thoughts, I haz 'em.
Most know my love for movies about dancers and last night I scored big with Birds of Paradise. Again, would LOVE to discuss. I think the reviewers are getting it wrong for the most part. It was lovely and hurty and omg the dancing! There is one scene, amongst so many, that will just haunt me forever, so so so gorgeous.
Nikon is hosting an all-day event tomorrow to launch the new Z!!!! OMG!!!! You guys! I cannot wait to get this into my grabby greedy hands. I'm going to buy one of the Z lenses and an adapter. I have so much Nikon glass. But I've talked myself out of the D6 and into mirrorless. Exciting!
Little known fact - Warren Ellis is the most beautiful man in rock and roll.
