Witness the wondrous power of the slogan generator from The Surrealist.


Not even my t-shirt.

More like an Eight.


How chirpy!


And so is your mom.


Sounds like a band… The Electric Seven.


Amen.


And a day without sunshine is like… night.


Do you have a Seven?

And Now…

… A meme that I shamelessly stole from Maxie.

The perfect outfit: Holey jeans, long t-shirt, lightweight hoodie, flipflops, toe ring.

The perfect meal: Pad Thai

The perfect hangover cure: Don’t drink in the first place.

The perfect road trip: Portland.

The perfect facial feature: Eyes.

The perfect drink: Coffee from Stumptown Coffee Co.

The perfect song: Um… Lately I love “Another Believer” by Rufus Wainwright (from Meet the Robinsons… RENT THIS MOVIE. IT IS GREAT).

The perfect sign of affection: A hug, but it has to be a good one. Not one of those limp, weenie ones. Like, wrap me up and squeeze.

The perfect afternoon: Good food and a movie, followed by a nap.

The perfect vacation: I don’t know… I haven’t been anywhere, so really anything is fine by me.

The perfect invention: The bed. I love me a good bed.

The perfect type of wedding: Big and boisterous, but really simple and low-key. Just a whole lotta people watchin’ me get hitched, eating a lot of food and hanging out.

The perfect album: JJ Heller’s “The Pretty and The Plain.”

The perfect accent: Irish, like Jonathan Rhys Myers. Be still my heart.

The perfect date: I’ve only been on two… It would be nice if the next one was actually romantic instead of just a friend date.

The perfect weather: 65-70, no humidity, lots of wind. Slightly overcast.

The perfect party: Just a bunch of people at my house, eating food and maybe watching a movie or some Lost or something.

The perfect sport: The one that I don’t have to play.

The perfect thing to say: There is no perfect thing to say that could make its way out of my clumsy lips.

The perfect day of the week: Saturday.



iTunes game.

So, Emily started this thing… you open iTunes and put it on shuffle.
Then you write a poem using the first audible line of each song.
Here’s mine:

I never had it; I never wanted it
Take a long drive with me
Someday when I’m awfully low
Dear charming kite,do lightly bite

Throwing off the fetters; working on my smile
Before we were on our way
In this dry and weary land
Turn your eyes from all this way

It’s all a waste of time again
‘Cause it’s a bittersweet symphony
This is how it works
It’s a wonder I can walk on painted avenues

Hello, darkness, my old friend
Early in the evening, just about suppertime
The distant country
Gee, but it’s great to be back home

Won’t you come along with me?
I believe in freedom; I believe in truth
Hello to the world
How long will I wait?

Every kind of love, or at least my kind of love
Golden bars of sunlight
If you ever get close to a human
Who can say where the road goes?
