Avoiding everything. What I thought was hives….
and then thought was poison ivy….
turned out to be a staph infection.
The entire right side of my face, my nose, my forearms, my thighs, and my stomach are covered in a red horrible rash.

- Dire Straits, “Romeo and Juliet”
- Bob Dylan, “It’s Alright Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)”
- Queen and David Bowie, “Under Pressure”
- Gram Parsons, “Wild Horses”
- Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, “Learning to Fly”
- Fleet Foxes, “Helplessness Blues”
- Traveling Wilburys, “Handle With Care”
- Vigilantes of Love, “Blister Soul”
- Blind Faith, “Can’t Find My Way Home”
#2-6, 8-10 are favorites because my father loved them, and taught them to me, and they are things we shared and loved together. I can’t say much more than that.
1 is my all-time favorite because I relate to it on basically every level. Same with 7.
I want to write you a beautiful missive, but I am completely knackered, so you just get this: listen to those. By those particular artists. It’ll change your life.
I know what I said. I know. But you guys all know that I am nothing if not a sucker for being needed so: I spent the last week shadowing my injured mother, and today we went to the hospital again.
@lindenashby: Twerk, twerking.. That’s all I heard about a few weeks ago. I had no idea what it was.. I thought.. uhmm… tweeting at work? Not quite.
Not dead yet!

I had a little bit of hesitation going with Blurb originally because I had read some not-so-great reviews. But honestly, this blew my mind away. It looks like it could be belong at Barnes & Noble (specifically talking about quality). The colours are vibrant, details pop, the cut of each page was exactly how I specified. I was worried about subtle things showing up, like image textures or submission credits, but it all seems to be in perfect order. The only cons are results of my decisions to go with cheaper options, like the matte cover showing fingerprints or the pages being a little thin.
I know it’s a little bit on the pricey side because I’m not going with a mass producer. To help with that, if you enter 2014BOOKS at checkout, you’ll get 15% off your total. This offer is expires April 30th, 2014 so get on that quick!
