tori, 59th street bridge song (feelin' groovy)
sometimes it's nice not to have a roommate; there is no one to hear you gasp ridiculously loudly upon discovering, for example, certain live tori amos cover songs.
yays! (it's up at collecting bees
if you're interested. which i assume you are.)
at cb there is a thread right now called "best days ever" where we're just talking about random awesome days we've had. here is what i posted!
- In London I picked up Paul Simon's album Rhythm of the Saints at a secondhand shop for pretty cheap, and I put it on my iPod and listened to it for really the first time while I was walking around Regent's Park, which is really, really beautiful. I just walked around and listened to it (I really love the album) and smiled a lot.
- Also in London, one day my friend and I went to Kew Gardens to see the Chihuly glass exhibit, and it was beautiful and we walked around and revelled in the beauty and startled a peacock and visited a giant badger hole and wondered about a vaguely castle-like building in the distance and laughed at Victorian Britons.
- Last summer at camp, the last day we were there, it was just the staff doing cleanup sorts of stuff, and one of my best friends and I hiked up to this place called Pine Haven, which is basically just a little fire circle in the midst of a bunch of, well, pine trees. It was very beautiful and then later that night we had our staff banquet and last campfire and we all sang and cried.
- Two(?) years ago I visited my friend Kait for a week and we went into New York City almost every day, which was all very cool for me because I'd only really ever been there for about a day before. The days kind of blur together but there was one when we saw both a matinee of Movin' Out and then the evening show of Avenue Q, and another where we saw the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Rent (and I met Scary Spice and was so excited!) and we were basically ridiculous and... yes, those were a good series of days.
- I've had a lot of good days on family vacations. One that still stands out even though I was maybe 8 or 9... we were in the Great Smoky Mountains national Park, and we got up early for a sunrise hayride thing, and it was beautiful and we saw an old cemetary and my brother and I were junior rangers. This may have been the same day we saw an old working mill or maybe it wasn't, but that was cool too.
- My sixteenth birthday was pretty amazing. As dorky as this sounds, Megan and I and our families were in San Francisco and we saw Rent and went out to dinner with Curtis Cregan, which we thought was impossibly cool, and met up with my friend Keith who I'd known on the internet for a few years but had never met in person.
I'm kind of a dork, it would seem!
