Summer has been treating us well. Lots of sunshine-y, bird-chirpy mornings, and the easy pace of a college town without students. Dean and I have been waiting until dusk to venture out when the Georgia heat is just right and you can see pops of fireflies. I’m working two jobs now, one at the public library which I love, and one as a typist which I only dislike ‘cos I’m lousy at it. Currently, we’re all about the World Cup, looking for secondhand furniture, and, ya know, enjoying all this time we get to spend together.
Early morning Wizzywig and tea while Dean sleeps in|Estate sale purchases- take a spin in our dentist assistant chair!|Breakfast on the floor before we got a table|Picked up some new titles at Bizarro-Wuxtry- all excellent
Snowpiercer at Ciné- the bonkers and marvelous action movie of my dreams!|Finished Donna Tartt’s The Little Friend- a beautiful, gloomy read for summer|Got a mint condition blue velvet sofa from Vic’s Vintage- before this, we sat on our sleeping bags|4th of July sparklers in the parking lot
AthFest! Elf Power covering ‘Needles in the Camel’s Eye’ and Kishi Bashi looping and layering. In between sets, we stopped into Mini Gallery where we met Missy Kulik and her partner (gah, realized too late I didn’t get his name). Missy and I have a couple of the same friends so that was pretty neat. We have to stop in and buy some zines from her soon. :)
And we went into Atlanta to see Damon Albarn and The Heavy Seas where I just about died of happiness. Friendly crowd, low-key set. Mostly new solo album songs, some Good, the Bad & The Queen, Gorillaz, and the Blur b-side ‘All Your Life’- all perfect. Afterwards, Dean and I went out for a very late dinner at R. Thomas Deluxe Grill. The food is delicious and I love that the owner takes care of geriatric parrots. They seemed content and well-cared for.
