Pixies & Porcelain

hugh's pixies poster
We went to a midnight show of the Pixies last night because my sweetheartdid the poster above! i love it so. It's so rare that I stay up till 2am these days that it felt exciting. And then I just felt tired and my feet hurt.

Staying up late also corresponds with my thus far 2 day cleanse from this book: You Are What You Eat! No caffeine/sugar/wheat/dairy/alcohol or any "nasties" as she calls them in her funny British way. Why am I doing this? Because I LOVE COFFEE too much. Between school and the restaurant job with the espresso machine staring me smack in the face, I was working my way up to a tizzy of lattes. I feel better now, but earlier today, before all the guzzling of ginger-gingseng-detox-green (opps, a bit of caffeine snuck in!) I had a throbbing head. I don't know if I'll make it tomorrow.

Maybe the headache was also induced by my terrific neon run to target! I am so excited-- I finally bought a new toilet seat:) Isn't that pathetic how excited I am?! Hugh and I both practically want to kiss the new porcelain seat because we are so happy. Who cares about the Pixies, this toilet seat is the bomb! Our old one was all pocky and decrepit and we were obsessing about how If We Only Could Get A New Toilet Seat Our Lives Will Be Perfect. Basically tonight for the next few hours, they are. More than anything, I think we're just proud that we were able to fix something, we're both (me more so) inept in the home improvement department.

Blissing out... maybe that Duchamp guy had something.

two things.
love the poster! really nice.
and i can completely relate to the coffee thing. i have done many a cleanse and felt better. i gave up the stuff for 4 months to see if it would help with pms and it made it worse {very rare i hear} so now i'm on the 2-3 cups in the AM and that is it gig. thinking of you because i know it's hard!! mav

Hey Mati, Thanks for the B-Day wishes. I'm excited for you about the new toilet seat, but I'm more excited about you joining our critique group. :)

That is a great poster. I am not sure I could give up my coffee (no more than 2 cups a day) and chocolate, although I am sure I would feel better

Well, this is interesting. I did a blog search for tea caffeine and found your site. When I get some time I'll come back and find out where tea caffeine appears and how it relates - if it even does. Take care - nice work.

Hi: I was looking for information on gold nugget hunting and can upon your site. I'm working on a site about Gold nuggets and looking for any good facts that I might be able to incorporate into my site to really provide an in-depth information source. After reading your Blog, I found it interesting, but, it wasn't what I was looking for. With that said, I must say I've enjoyed reading it. I bookmarked your blog for the future. Well I'm off again in search for gold nugget hunting info.
