FIGHTING FIRE WITH FIRE

This journal is access-only.

In it, I talk about: law school, work, politics, knitting, things I've read on the internet, things I wish I hadn't read on the internet, my friends, why my life makes me angry, and my adventures in home renovation. You're welcome to subscribe to me on that basis and I'll give you access in return (and probably subscribe as well). But I don't really interact with people very much.

If you're here because I've subscribed to your journal out of the blue: hi! You're more than welcome to subscribe in return.

Songs About Boys

... I may well have a wide definition of "pop". Hope you like it!

Wellington has been pulling out all the stops lately; we've had a staggeringly good run this past month. Today has been no different: warm, sunny, blue-skied and lush green vegetation everywhere. There are flowers in the garden - half a dozen colours of poppy and two kinds of lavendar and assorted marigolds and daisies, plus the alstroemeria outside my window. I made peanut-butter cupcakes and decorated them with geranium flowers, a deep red.

Have five songs I'm listening to a lot at the moment:
Tiny Dancer (Hold Me Closer) by Ironic feat. Chipmunk and Elton John
Lah-Di-Dah by Jake Thackray
Diamond Rings by Chipmunk feat. Emeli Sande
Shut Up, American Boy by Estelle feat. Kanye West (remix by the Hood)
Girls by the Beastie Boys

(Of these, the one you should definitely get is Lah-Di-Dah: it's technically mid-60s satire, but it's one of the sweetest songs about love I've ever heard.)

I'm off to read a novel about a 17 year old girl who goes to live by herself in a cabin in the woods and raises rabbits and gardens and is happy, more or less, with the solitary life she has chosen for herself.

Last night was Fangirl Friday at the Oaks, and it was heaps of fun; also, I drank a rather lovely riesling which I'm going to have to track down. Tonight I'm probably going to make myself a cocktail or two, and settle down to read sprawling fantasy fiction in bed.
