I guess with this storm about to hit NYC, it's not a bad moment to come down with a cold.

Today's agenda:
1. Go to the mall; exchange Christmas gifts for sweaters that actually fit
2. Go to the gym; run
3. Stay inside; it's actually colder than Antarctica out there
4. Eggnog

I'm fascinated by the melody and orchestration of these two lines:

"What purpose does beauty even serve these days? / What purpose does beauty even serve these days / besides a little titillation?"

("Britney Spears," from "You Us We All" by Shara Worden and Andrew Ondrecjak)


I understand the sentiment, but the finger snapping is a bit exuberant.

@sanspoint Srsly, why hasn't this happened, yet?

(Not that we won't all say we're going and then flake out because the MTA is running badly and it's cold and possibly snowing outside and also we were just really tired from that thing yesterday.)

This place is so nice, and it's full of so many nice people

I think I'll start putting glitter in the blue part of my hair for the Christmas and New Years season.
