Wherein I type a list of things I want to accomplish in 2009

In 2009 I want to...

- Be more social
- Begin drinking alcohol again
- Start a pop night in Montreal, then pass it off to someone who actually has the time to hold a pop night
- Use my day planner so forgetting appointments will be kept to a minimum
- Go to more shows (at least 2 a month)
- Lose the 10 pounds I gained from working in Laval
- Learn a new song on the guitar
- Decorate my bedroom
- Buy art

These aren't resolutions, just what I want to do. Maybe I will end up doing these things, maybe I won't. Ha.

Belle and Sebastian video

This video is adorable. The guy prepares for college by going to a "hip" clothing store and asking the sales clerk for the same outfit Bob Dylan wears on the Blonde on Blonde album cover.

- Friends

Here's what I've been up to lately:

- Taking photos of my dolls
- Selling stuff on eBay and using the money to buy stuff on eBay and Etsy
- Going to the post office
- Putting outfits together on
- I'm so bored, I've even been on facebook a little
- Having phone interviews with potential employers
- Watching the Rachel Zoe Project and Stylista
- Chatting with Gavin, Kevin, and Canada (I have no 'in-person' friends)
- I found some ginger snaps. Close, very close.
- Making lists
- Cleaning my apartment, and messing it up again
- Read the demise of "Opus" (I miss that little penguin)
- Listening to records, and some Peel Sessions on CD (The Wedding Present is quite wonderful)
- Chatted with me mum and dad
- Grooming the cats
- Staying up late, but waking up at a reasonable hour each day
- Reading about the world, close enough to watching it go by

I'm back from NYC. Tired. Bored. I don't like being back. Montrealers, for the most part, are pretentious as fuck. I'm tired of snotty people and their sense of entitlement.

I found the building where I want to live. It's across the narrow street from the Cake Shop on Ludlow.
