Hurry up and get here

Still Breathing is my movie find of the day. Strongly recommended. If anyone reading this ever repeats that I am enough of a romantic to be moved by this film, I'll vehemently deny it. This conversation never happened. But it was good and spoke to me uniquely in a few ways.

Shaved after my morning shower to rediscover my face. It appears I'm still here. Punctuated my day off with visits to a couple of my favorite places: morning reading and writing at my beloved Victrola, and a lunchtime grinder from Zootie's Cafe ("Zooty-zoot-zoot!"). Been doing a few of the itty bitty annoying things that I've needed to get out of the way for some time, such as follow-up phone calls important to the health of my iBook and Twentieth Anniversary Mac. May get out the shovel and plow through some of my procrastinated finances later today. And I may not.

I'd like to have a big houseplant here, some kind of tree-y thing. Also should get a bar table one of these days (I've procrastinated over two years for the right one). I can just never pick these things out.

For no discernable reason, I'm sensing another player may come to the table soon. And she might just be on my side. I just don't know who she is yet. Not a thing, just a sense that she is (this predated my viewing of Still Breathing by a few hours, but it's probably one of the reasons I was taken by it). I've given up trying to understand.

Tea sounds good right now.

I also just watched a movie with The Cosmos Brought Them Together type themes running through it.... I remember this Still Breathing and I remember being enchanted by it- but I also always feel cheated by a romance story about people that hardly know eachother. I know, of course that the idea is that they were connected at the soul, but I'm the kind of girl who is moved by "childhood sweetheart" stories. But then I have deep issues of mistrust.

heh. :)
Anyway. I don't mean to be contrary.

What is a bar table?
Point well taken. :)

A bar table is a table at which you can sit with bar stools. I bought two cool barstools at a yard sale two years ago, but haven't yet found a table to go with them. Since I have a small kitchen, this would theoretically be where I would eat. Instead, I eat out and on the couch. But I'd still like a cool bar table. I'd feel more settled somehow (instead of having two stools sitting in the corner).

Re:

Ya... stools are kinda sad without something to lean on while sitting on one.
If you see something cool (I'm thinking glass and metal), let me know.

Re:

heh... I'll let you know. Although I don't make it much to places with furniture.

The Korean market near me has a really cool coffee table, but it's extremely low to the ground and would probably be exactly the opposite of what you're looking for.

ha... but ya- I'll keep my eyes peeled. (figuratively speaking)
Yay for listening to John Mayer! I have nothing more substantive to say...sorry. :)
