watching the first few episodes of six feet under is such a treat! we didn't have HBO the first time around. while they re-ran the first season a few months ago, it was on wednesday nights and we could never keep it straight. we ended up missing those firstfewimportantepisodes. this time, sundays nights are back and i couldn't be happier - what a great show! seeing the humble beginnings of this program is quite a thrill, as so much has tied together throughout it's two short seasons.
basically, i can't wait for season three! although it will be quite a long wait.....
it's nice to read refreshing articles that give women hope - like this from the first choice: "There is a reality disconnect between what we see in magazines and on TV -- the perfect skin stretched tautly over fat-free bones and what actual living human females look like." nicely said. and, check out that kelly osbourne article, she's one helluva kid!
also, on the plan for this weekend - check out the rolling thunder tour in chicago. however, i'm a bit disappointed that michael moore seems to have dropped off the schedule - that's fairly shitty, as he was one of the main reasons i'd like to attend.
started off the weekend with a short tour of members' night at the field museum. then, saw a friends' band play up at north beach. this was pretty interesting, as it is not the typical establishment i frequent. a little bit too close to the god-awful club zone near weed st. but, i'll be back next week to ridicule the patrons some more.
i had some friends in town on saturday for the neocon trade fair, so we met up downtown and went for some nice italian at bice. i had a really interesting pasta dish, and we were given a free round of drinks due to the slow service. there was a private party upstairs, so the regular diners were sitting for awhile, but the staff took care of us, and slightly lagged at the end wrapping up the bill. i hightailed it outside for some fresh air and a smoke - such a nice evening!
