time is me and I should know
relax the world will spin beside itself and suck you in
I change the landscape as I pass
I don't need these orbits in my life
I don't need this circular design
I've lost my mind
it's been too long since the last show - see for yourself ;-)

as a fan of don delillo, it's nice to see salon recognize him as having a brilliant career. this item is more for my own personal pleasure, as i need to read it at a later date. once again, i'm back working on-site and my time spent browsing is severely limited.

i'm going to see ani difranco tonight with one of my old housemates from urbana. i tried to get a ticket earlier this week, but it had sold out. her sister couldn't make it - worked out nicely for me. i haven't seen ani since may '99, and i'm excited to hear lots of new material.

what is art? a cleaner at a london gallery mistook an installation by damien hirst as a pile of rubbish and cleared it away - oops! luckily the artist found this act "hilariously funny" and no one has lost a job over the mishap.
page six reports that woody harrelson is traveling around in a converted 1977 Chicago Transit bus that runs on hemp fuel! the bus is called the "mothership" - and when woody is not using it for his personal transportation, you can find it on the SOL tour.

check out my roommate j3s' latest project: fuckcorporategroceries.net - an attempt to stay away from corporate grocery stores, but even more so, a way to support our local neighborhood shops at the same time!
i'm back in the office for a day or two - it's so nice to be back in familiar, comfortable surroundings! as i'm working through a long list of favorite bookmarks, i came across the latest get crafty installment of "real women in real homes", and, it's ariel!
check out the forest loft, even though it is not her current dwelling, it still made me happy to see it again ;-)

another weekend full of good times. last night, went for dinner at the vegetarian express gourmet, a vegan restaurant down near my parents place. i brought a little crew with me, and it went over very well. especially, atom, the only vegan in the bunch. nice to find a restaurant full of good food one can eat without no hesitations.
on to the big news: as we speak, "return to armitage 4" is in the making ;-) yes, that's right, tonight is the latest in a series of parties at the apartment. the last one was back in june, much too long ago. we've all been busy, we're celebrating many birthdays, so the time is ripe! however, all my roomies are sleeping, and we've got much to do before night falls, so i better get movin'...

i practice jedi, and you? [thanks to murph for keeping me in the loop]
spent my wonderful day off yesterday at six flags great america. it was a beautiful day, but 2 hours consisted of waiting in line for the latest ride, déjà vu. it was crazy! fun ride, but 2 hours was a bit much. i'm glad i waited, rollercoasters are meant for that long wait, hearing the screams, excitement building, all that jazz.

another exciting fall weekend in chicago - actually, we just turned our heat on for the first time! yesterday was lovely, a whole lot of sun & a little bit of chill; went to a local pug parade, as my brother has a pug & now my entire family can't get enough of them. it was great, pugs all over the place, and with all the excitement, you didn't hear any barking. those dogs are pretty well mannered, although some can be quite a handful ;-)
