A meme and a question  

1. Make a list of 5 things you can see without getting up.

1) (Mostly empty) bucket of Red Vines
2) The Man Wall
3) Calculator
4) Stuffed Dalek

I think that's a good representation of the kind of person I am.

2. How do you style your hair?

Simple blowout for my bob.

3. What are you wearing now?

Blue cami, grey gardigan, white skirt, leather knee boots and pink striped socks.

4. What's your most favorite place to visit in the world?

I'm a New York City sorta girl.

Watermelon, raspberries, blackberries.

6. Pick a two word phrase to describe yourself

Reading Memoirs of a Dirty Old Man by Bukowski and Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman at a friend's request. 
Want to read Ender's Game.

8. What's the last thing you ate today?

Blueberries, grapes, and Goldfish. Katherine, Anne, Ugoezi and I share food during physics lab. :)

We Can Create by Maps. Highly recommended, if you're into sprouling, ecstatic electro and ethereal vocals. Good enough to pay for.

15. What is your favourite weather and why?

Wildly stormy or wildly sunny and windy. The former makes me elated, the later relaxed. I love everything except overcast days.

16. If you could play any musical instrument, which one would you play?

The cello.

17. Anything exciting as of late?

Nothing excited me much these days.

18. If you could do anything at all today, money and time not an issue, what would you do?

See my grandmother.

19. What was the last concert you went to?

I can't remember. :(
I am going to see Habib Koite Tomorrow though! :D

Anyone interested in going to some upcoming shows with me?

May 1: Yann Tierson with Asobi Seksu
May 6 and 7: Iron & Wine
May 9: The Shins

I've never been to an electro or hip hop concert before. Please come with me!

I'm down with that like Richard's lingering gaze on a pubescent boy.

Apparently, no one in the LOST fandom shares our wrongness.

Was thinking about The Fleet Foxes and The Shins as well. I'm not sure though.

Haha, really? The cello? Not the flute?

I find it strange that 15 has a "u" in "favourite", but 4 uses the American spelling.

The Shins seem like they would be cute live.

I need to go to more hardcore rock shows. Or go to at least one, and walk home with a bloody nose. That is my goal.

Flute is nice and all, but sometimes you need the touch of a woman smooth sound of bow on string.

There was a 14 year old girl at Cheeseboard playing jazzy tunes on flute. Amazing.

Perhaps someone added the last few questions?

Yeah, I didn't have a chance to visit the Warfield. It got late.

Are there any rock shows coming up?

Wow, performing at 14? She must be pretty good. Jazz on the flute sounds interesting.

I think I'll stick with the guitar for now, though. Not quite as smooth a sound as the cello, but a similarly smooth shape. ;)
