The semester started…and it’s just kept going and going. I’ve been playing a little bit of catch-up in school since I was sick as well, so it’s been a little hectic. Anyways, I get in these modes where I’m all about productivity. Isaiah sometimes sings the “Better, faster, stronger…more productive” line from Radiohead…and from there he usually breaks into full song and dance, “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” by Daft Punk. It’s entertaining. Usually I get a nice little back-dance out of it…the alternative to the lap dance that allows me to continue working.
I had to break out of productivity mode. Ironically, I wasn’t getting anything done.
Isaiah came up with the brilliant idea to walk to downtown Denton last weekend, so we trekked the mile to the square. I cannot explain to you how culturally fascinating Denton is. It’s a musical hotbed and definitely worth diving into.
We spent the day browsing around Recycled Books, a comic store and got some frozen yogurt.
Isaiah and I got a chance to chat with his mom too…and eat some potato skins…seriously, how long has it been since you had potato skins? We are huge “How I Met Your Mother” fans as well…if you are too, you’ll remember…potato skins.
I’m fully aware of how pissed off I look in this photo…but Isaiah likes it…so I suppose I’m forcing it on you for that reason.
Anyways, after we walked about Denton, we decided that we need to get out more. We’ve become little worker-robots lately…between school, job hunting, freelance stuff, ctrlP and the blog, we haven’t done a whole lot of extracurricular shtuff.
If you don’t know who Sarah Jaffe is, you should certainly find out. She’s a Denton-made, indie heartbreaker. Her song “Clementine” is one of my favorites. She is breaking out in a DJ enterprise right now, and she threw, what turned into, a hipster-kid-dance-party at a badass venue out here.
They had $1 champagne…I know, random.
This is kind of a hodge-podge post, so I apologize for the erratic photos.
We could go on and on about our little munchkin cats. They’re unusually awesome. Don’t believe me? Our kitties, just being as cute as always. Biggie and Tupac are always cuddling next to each other and fighting like little ninjas.
Check out Tupac’s little Stretch Armstrong arms…
Isaiah and I had a mattress-in-the-living-room-on-the-floor-lazy-celebration week. And yes, Biggie hangs out like this every day, every time I sit.
Beyond that. We were freshly pressed on WordPress this week! If you’re not on WordPress, they put your post up on the front page with other selections. We were up for the entire weekend and our site got some wicked stats because of it! It was so exciting. I’m still a little wired.
Sorry for the lack of meat, this week has been a little crazy. In the meantime, enjoy the music.
