Stepford Wives

Beth and I went to see the new version of the Stepford Wives. I expected the same film as the original, with a few updates. But it had a different spin - actually kind of funny. Nothing spectacular, but fun to watch.

Afterwards we went to the Pink for a drink. Nobody was there yet, but it was nice to sit on the patio. You e-peeps need to get out earlier.

Keeping In Touch

Last night I ran into some old grad student friends that were in town. It was so good to see them. I'm really glad that I became friends with Renee, Lara, and Taylor. And it's so cool that we still talk even after they've all moved to other places - even if it's just once a year.

RSS

I downloaded SharpReader and subscribed to the e-strip rss link. It's super easy and really good for reading journals at work. You can go from journal to journal quickly, and it's not as obvious that you're doing non-work-related things.

Voluntary Mind Control

I wonder if relying on the boys to tell me what to read could lead to being brainwashed. Sounds like Paul's cup of tea. Maybe I've fallen into his manipulative trap.

Thursday Fun

We went to Thursday at the Square and then to Prespa for a bit. I got to meet another epeep in person. I like it when the virtual world meets the real world - especially when there are drinks, really good pizza, and cheesecake involved. Thanks Zack.

Bowie

SATURDAY, MAY 22:
Voicemail message. "Hi Rachel, I have an extra ticket to see David Bowie on Tuesday. The seats are in ROW G."

Hmm.. Let me think about this for a nanosecond.

SEVERAL NIGHTS IN THE EARLY 1980s:
I stare at the giant poster of a man with two different eye colors. Downstairs my teenage brother blares Bowie on my parents' stereo.

Those nights forever instilled a love for Bowie in my heart(and I suspect my sister's). The Laughing Gnome still reminds me of being a little girl with a big brother who always enjoyed having a good chuckle.

TUESDAY, MAY 25:
His voice resonated through Shea's like nothing I've ever heard live. For 2 hours he played a set that included songs from the seventies through the present. My favorite hightlight - when Gail Ann Dorsey put a whole new spin on the Freddy Mercury vocals in Under Pressure.

Definitely a night to remember.
