Who's Your Boyfriend?

well. right now mine's Adam Green.


he's wonderfully erratic, semi depressed and quite witty (aren't all the singer songwriters i write about?). I got his Gemstones cd like a weekish ago or something and i adore him... i've meant to listen to him for such a long time because he's apparently like best friends with the Strokes (i heard a fab moretti reference in a song...) but i've only now just found his cd, and i am ever so greatful.

if you want to see what else i'm listening to... i've cleverly started using my last.fm again.... here's my weekly top









blahblahblah. anywhoo, i didn't really find too many after chrismtas sale items which was kind of a bummer. i spent more money on books, which is not so much a bummer. currently i am about 30 pages into each of the following books:




Wondeful Tonight is a bit slower than I thought it would be, I wish it was a memior instead of a full on biography, because quite frankly i don't really care about Pattie Boyd's childhood. i want to get to the rock and roll years.
Atonement is really really good (obviously, i guess that's why they made it a movie...), so far my favourite of the three. I love the characters already, I haven't seen the movie yet, and I don't plan on it until after I read the book becaues books are always better anyway.
Victoria Beckham's book is pretty much just a refresher course on her personal style incase you've not been keeping up with People or Us or what have you lately. But i really like vicbeck, obviously. She always looks classy... so i guess reading her book can't hurt. plus she made a 'little black gucci dress' allusion, which i quite appreciated.

and finally.. isn't it totallly crazy that it's swimsuit season already?! i got my victoria's secret swim catalog in the mail the other day and i was amazed. nothing new has happened in a year with swimsuits apparently... but i do really like these from urban outfitters, i'm pretty sure theyre exactly the same as the ones i liked last year... leftovers?




also.. i saw walk hard. the only thing i have to say about it is don't waste $7. superlame. so i made up for it by seeing Juno three times. WIZARD. i've become a juno quoting fiend. no one understands haha. and i promise i really will try and write more, i just forget, and get bored and lazy and uninspired in these winter days haha.


PPS...PSS? i don't know i never learned. GO READ PLAIN JAYNE's NEWEST POST because it rocks the house.

hello!

i ran across your blog today while reading pistolwhipped's.

i wanted to say that i thoroughly enjoy what i've seen so far and it creeps me out a little that we are so incredibly similar.

which probably creeps you out because you have no idea who i am, but trust me, we're a lot alike.

keep up the excellent work in reading my mind and putting it on the internet so i can read about things i am really interested in.

Those bathing suits are too cute! Its a little early for me to even think about it, who knows how much could change in a couple of months.

I want to see Atonement, but maybe I should read the book.

I really want a retro swimsuit! I finally saw Juno, it was everything I hoped for! Just perfect. And afterward I had to go listen to Belle & Sebastian for a long time.
