I feel learning to do the Charleston-Lindy Hop hybrid would turn my life around.

Goddamn Facebook  
Quitting Facebook is challenging when I can't outright delete my account (because I'm the administrator for a local non-profit's Facebook page) and it's pure habit to check the page without actually wanting to check the page. I feel Google+ is really not taking up any slack either, because it's pretty much just me and NPR posting. I have 20-something friends in my circles, too, which is crazy given the silence. Anyway, I still loathe Facebook and fully intend to stick this out.

Pick up the nearest book to you.
Turn to page 45.
The first sentence describes your sex life in 2012.

After playing some Italian songs, Miss Bingley varied the charm by a lively Scotch air; and soon afterwards Mr. Darcy, drawing near Elizabeth, said to her --

'Do not you feel a great inclination, Miss Bennet, to seize such an opportunity of dancing a reel?'

The Lady with the Plans  
I think the greatest thing I accomplished yesterday was deciding to move my seldom used makeup from the bathroom to my bedroom. I suspect this will make it more frequently used, if only to experiment with drawing different Bowie/Firefly inspired lightning bolts on my face.

While ideal for religious fundamentalists with class (a number I imagine to be relatively small), I think Prigmore would not be a great surname to have. Apologies to any saucy, tartly, and uninhibited Prigmores out there.

Music: 9 and 10 News (they use the term "news" loosely)

This is Why We Fight  
I just finished thwarting Rylie, who has been an unbearable asshat with his temper-tantrum derived case of pica. I am feeling extremely smug, especially because he woke me up this morning with biting and the threat of chewing my fitbit base's cord. He's also been after my laptop power cord lately. He's adorable, but he's a total asshole.

I should really start updating Rylie & Liz again.

On a completely different and subject referential note, I saw The Decemberists in concert on Wednesday! The show was completely amazing, despite the swimmer's itch that apparently abounds in Green Lake, at Interlochen Center for the Arts.

Kresge Auditorium is amazing. It's open air, so the lake is visible from most of the seats. I'm sure it's the perfect place for summer, because a nice breeze can blow through, too. Finally, the most appealing thing to me, it's a smaller venue (WELL, smaller than The Palace of Auburn Hills, which I freaking hate.) I would definitely go to a concert there again.

Both bands played great sets (The Head and the Heart opened). I hardly noticed I missed some of my favourite songs ("The Engine Driver," "Sons and Daughers," "Annan Water") because I had such a great time. Colin Meloy is not only a singer, but apparently he's a comedian. We were regaled with tales of trespassing and using private property (a trampoline). We even heard the worst song Colin Meloy ever wrote, "Dracula's Daughter." I haven't been to very many concerts, but even if I had, I'm sure this would have topped my concert experience list. All of the band members were very entertaining, and the show's theatrics were fantastically fun. I would definitely go to another Decemberists concert. If I had the money, I would go to ALL of The Decemberists' concerts.

I have so many pictures of The Decemberists playing, and even two videos. They are all awful quality, because I only used my phone. Still, I'll tell everybody when I upload them, because then I'll share them with interested people.
