The 7am Survey
1. Who has your whole heart?

8. Did you meet anyone new today?
No, but it's only 7:25am right now.
9. Have you ever been on the radio?
Does a podcast count? Does working for an internet radio station count?
10.What did you drink today?
Water. But since it's not even 7:30am yet, I'll go with yesterday: I drank water, coffee, Diet Coke, & beer.
11. Do you like honey?
I like the Mariah Carey song "Honey," rumored to be her code word for something naughty and featuring P. Diddy back when he was still Puff Daddy.

My toe, I think?

17.How many letters are there in your last name?
18. When did you go swimming last?
Ummm, July, maybe?

36. Who was the last person you rode in a car with?
37. When was the last time you were so high you threw up?
Why would you make yourself high enough to throw up? That's not really fun.
38. What are you doing tonight?
Maybe seeing a movie, then maybe going to an open bar with Amanda, then recording MetroBuzz. Or maybe that order will switch around, depending on whether or not I can get a guarantee that recording won't take the normal 6 hours of my life that it shouldn't be doing.

45. Do you miss anyone?
All the time.
46. Do you get scared easily?
Depends on what type of scared. Not really of stuff like scary movies or bugs or the dark or trying new things. I've found that when you conquer one fear, another one just pops up to take its place. That's kinda disturbing to me.

Like a sailor, but I'm working on it.
48. Are you scared of the dark?
Not at all.
49. Who was the last person in your bed?

That it's coming and it's not bad if it's different than you always thought it would be. And that everything will be okay in the end.

Caesar doesn’t have the slightest idea what’s really going on.
"Maturity is a bitter disappointment for which no remedy exists, unless laughter can be said to remedy anything.”This has been both a good week & a crappy week, but when I saw this on Wednesday, it made me laugh:
Laugh while you can kids, you never know when you won't be allowed to anymore.

That Time I Didn't See Mos Def Followed By That Time I Saw The New Pornographers
At least it was sponsored by Southern Comfort, so the entire night was open bar and only of SoCo, Jack Daniel's, and Budweiser Select. So that was fun to entertain/feed into my feelings of self-pity for a little while til my rational side kicked in and reminded me that walking down Delancey really late at night, drunk and alone, was definitely one of the DUMBEST things that I could do, so I cut myself off at like 10:30pm before I could even get a good buzz.
Last night, Amanda & I skipped out on this Women's In Music event at the Chelsea Hotel in order to head to the Apple store in Soho to see The New Pornographers. It was fun but the acoustics from where we were standing weren't so great, so it was hard to hear the vocals at points. However, I must say that Neko Case is really pretty in person (at least I think so), even if her hair isn't quite as red as it is in all the promo pictures, haha.
Here's the setlist:
1. All of the Things That Go To Make Heaven and Earth
2. Use It
3. All the Old Showstoppers
5. My Rights Versus Yours
6. Adventures in Solitude
7. The Laws Have Changed
9. Don’t Bring Me Down (ELO cover)
Encore: Bleeding Heart Show
I took a video of them singing "My Rights Versus Yours," but it's not the best of quality. Pictures and the video are also posted on Starked NY (can you tell that I'm trying to get as many page hits as possible on it nowadays. I realized the mo' hits, the mo' money, the mo' I have for plane tickets to North Carolina, so support a lovesick gal and freaking refresh that shit every hour on the hour. I don't really care for writing about celebs much anymore but $$$$$ & xoxo is a helluva motivation.)

East Village Reunion
Julia likes to stare at my chest.
What's up, asshole?
Group photos are fun.
Random pic that looked like a cross between Ronald Reagan and Satan.

Of North Carolina, Moby & Reunions
So I was in North Carolina last week, from Tuesday, November 27 - Sunday, December 2. Luckily, I had a relatively smooth airport experience both ways. I'm a rockstar for getting a week and a half off from work. *Pats self on the back.* Got lots of Christmas shopping done before I left, which is gooooood.
Waaaaaaay too early on Saturday morning at the Iceplex. Like 7am too early. Like you can see the dark circles under our eyes too early.

The opportunities are endless...
North Carolina was awesome last week. More on that later/tomorrow, but check out Jay's brand new blog cause he beat me to it (ah, not paying attention in class). He also totally copied me, loser ;)
