My brother is amazing. I had always considered myself better at representational drawing than him (whereas he kicks my ass at 3D stuff), but this has made me reconsider my position. I saw him wearing that sweatshirt and I asked him where he got it, thinking it was a show or something. He said he made it. With a fine-tip Sharpie. Jeez. Trees for me are incredibly hard to draw, and he made it look effortless.

My mom and I cleaned my sister's room. She's notorious for making food and eating it into her room, and then hiding her dishes. For whatever reason, she'll hide them in her dresser or garbage bags instead of just bringing them back downstairs. This is what my mother and I found:

Note the moldy food that's been there God knows how long. Note the 15 teaspoons. Note the 3 sharp knives. Note the FONDUE FORK (why??).

I got the following CDs over break:

  • Fox Confessor Brings the Flood by Neko Case
  • The Swimming Hour by Andrew Bird's Bowl of Fire
  • Thrills by Andrew Bird's Bowl of Fire
  • Viva La Woman by Cibo Matto
  • How It Ends by DeVotchKa
  • Mouthfuls by the Fruit Bats
  • Rabbit Fur Coat by Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins
  • Legs to Make Us Longer by Kaki King
  • The Greatest by Cat Power

And in the loose ends department:

  • I ended up getting the Junior Award for outstanding acheivement, according to the letter I received. I get $50. I hope to find out who nominated me and what the hell they were smoking at the time.
  • I got referred to yet another doctor, this one a specialist in surgery around the vocal cords.
  • I spent all day Thursday and then Friday morning speed walking around Chicago, and the following evening I was so incredibly sore.
  • I have a paper due in exactly 24 hours, and I still need to watch the two films (although I've seen one once before).
