like the lil devils we are, you stole my heart when you stole my white smarties. i attacked you in retaliation — friends ever since.

not so long ago, you taught me about young love and jealousy.
i’m happy you found someone who seems to appreciate your never-ending loyalty.

blacked the f*** out.

i’ve come a long way in the past 10 years. i’ve graduated high school and college. i’ve broken up and fallen down and picked up the pieces. i’ve adopted a cat.

but i still heart britney spears. i don’t care what anyone says. i don’t care about her personal issues. all i care about is her upbeat, silly, dance pop music that i can sing my lil head off to whenever i need a pick-me-up — and “blackout,” her latest album out today, looks like it’ll provide me with just that.

I’m not gonna write out a long music review (i’ve never been very good at that). i’m not even going to recommend anyone buys it. i just want to put this out there — her die-hard fans will buy her album no matter what. and 10 years later, die-hard fan, i still am.

you always brighten my day from thousands of miles away — even when i don’t want it brightened. i miss your charisma and sparkling personality.

“where are you going?” she asks.
“home,” i say, wide-eyed and frazzled.
“yes, but where’s that?” she persists.
i stare blankly before realizing she’s asking in the most literal terms.

thank god. i haven’t known where home is for years.

it’s been three years since i dressed like you for halloween, my triplet. we’re both still copy editing, hanging with journas and randomly meowing.

becoming fanatic

in a previous life, i posted about how obsessed i was with jimmy eat world’s “futures.” well, i’ve since grown out of that obsession — and fallen head over heels in love with the band’s new album, “chase this light.” BUY THIS ALBUM. And if not, at least listen to a few of the songs and humor me. I highly recommend “Dizzy” and “Gotta Be Somebody’s Blues.” (FYI, it doesn’t look like this album is up on Last.fm yet, so you just may have to buy it…)

they’re coming to the area in november. i must see them. (roommate, are you reading this??)

unlikely friends, yet tiny hands and smug monkeys have more in common than you’d think. thanks for always making me laugh until i cry.
