accidental flares of love burst through the atmosphere


(that's where my head is, in case you were wondering)

Here is a list of things that I need to do:
- Save about $2,000 so I can move into a one bedroom apartment here in LA at some point late this year or next year without having to freak out about paying for security deposits and setup fees and an undoubtedly higher rent
- Take Bella to the vet to make sure that piece of ribbon she ate a while ago (of course it had to be the kind with wire in the edges) isn't wrapped around her intestines or something
- Find a flight to Buffalo for my birthday that's less than $500. PS: my birthday falls on Labor Day weekend, sooooooooooooooooo...
- New glasses

Everything I need to do costs hundreds of dollars.

I could freelance...and I am freelancing, but I've taken on a ridiculous amount of free projects. So much so, in fact, that I don't have any time to handle more than the single paid project I have going on right now. So I guess that's out. This means I will have to resort to my "backup plan" (aka my dream come true) and track down David Duchovny so we can elope somewhere and he can then pay for my moving expenses. I hope he doesn't expect me to move in with him after we get married. I am so UNINTERESTED in that idea.

All I know for certain after this weekend is that my friends are worth their weight in gold, and Tom Waits is a lyrical genius.

I’m the hat on the bed
I’m the coffee instead
The fish or cut bait
I’m the detective up late
I’m the blood on the floor
The thunder and the roar
The boat that won’t sink
I just won’t sleep a wink
You’re the same kind of bad as me
