it wasn't good enough, i wanted love

After fighting it off for a few days, I finally gave in and admitted that Bush is pretty much all I really want to listen to right now. Josh's taste in music is infectious; he's been listening to a lot of Bush lately because he was rereading Ender's Game and has a sci-fi story that he'll never write down brewing in his mind. So after going from Science of Things in his car to Razorblade Suitcase and Golden State in his smoking room, hearing him talk about how he associates the song "Float" (which is amazing, by the way, and I've listened to it like fifteen times over the past three or four days) with a sci-fi short story he read in high school, BAM, I'm addicted. I haven't listened to one band so much in a week since that one week where Queens of the Stone Age clicked for me and I racked up 80 plays for them on alone.

The short story, by the way, is "The Cold Equations" by Tom Godwin. He couldn't remember the title or author, I ran the premise past a friend of mine who's like a dictionary of sci-fi, he identified it, and I found it online and printed it out for Josh. I'll give it to him when I see him on Sunday.

Mom's in Chicago this weekend for a Montessori convention, so Lili is coming to stay with me. She always gets so excited to stay at the apartment and I feel lame because there's not a whole hell of a lot for a ten year old girl to do here. So we watch a lot of movies and take the bus downtown Holland and make coffee and play Skip-Bo and I make food she likes. I went shopping for the occasion; I don't keep a ton of food in the apartment because I'm more of a grazer than a meal-eater these days. So I got stuff to make tacos and spaghetti, which has the added benefit of killing some time rather than just making sandwiches.

I just talked to Paul on the phone for a while. Talking to him always brightens up my day.
