So...I've sat here for five minutes trying to figure out what I should post about today. There's nothing new going on.
Eh...I got some CDs from the library, one of which was The Shins's Wincing the Night Away, and, honestly...I don't get it. Maybe I haven't given it enough time to grow on me, but I've heard such great things from so many different people about it that I was really disappointed. It's a little too...whiny...too precious...too...formless? The songs are more like amorphous clouds of music and words than SONGS. And when I can't find form in a song, it makes me sort of want it to be over, like, NOW.
I emailed my brother in Iraq this morning. I haven't heard from him in a few months, and I'm hoping he's okay. I'm sure he's fine. We got a long time without talking even when he's in the states. But last I heard his wife hadn't heard from him and my mom hadn't heard from him in a while. Hrm.
*deleted* I just started telling you guys about the lead that turned out to be an automotive job again. Wow. I really AM boring right now.
Blah. Sorry for the lack of meat and potatoes. Maybe you can caption this photo:
