A few things.
First, I have been playing Pokémon obsessively for the past two days. Pokémon Blue, to be exact. And I use an emulator. So here is the website for those of you who may be bored and unfortunate enough not to own a Gameboy or any Pokémon games.
Someone (mega-cough) left an Arizona Peach Tea can tab on my front porch on Easter. I now wear it proudly with my old one and yes, I can distinguish between the two.
Easter, by the by, was hellish. Everyone was fighting and I got pied in the face and my great-aunt cried for her beloved slice of lemon meringue pie or some shit like that. My family is nuts.
I actually have a twenty-three second clip of a high-speed chase in my cousin’s basement. I can’t upload it places, though. Ugh.
Also, my Tamagotchi family is growing up to be cute (for once in their miserable lives).
Here is the song that I have decided would fit so nicely on a sountrack. Like the soundtrack to my life. I think it would be on a walk before something really intense. You could see it, couldn’t you? When it breaks down, something intense is going down. Like a drug deal or passionate eyes. On YouTube, I saw a pretty neat dance routine to this song, but I wanted them to breakdance at the mood shift. They stayed graceful throughout, though. Not bad, but not what I would have done.

Here’s the dance clip. Someone commented, “I never pictured someone dancing to this.” But I did. Every time I hear it, I feel like frolicking for serious. I feel like grabbing the nearest person’s hand and dancing.
And also, for old time’s sake, I shall present you three of my favourite Rilo Kiley songs. I am in a real Rilo Kiley mood lately. Not even Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins. Just Rilo Kiley, plain and simple. I am fairly certain, right now, that The Execution of All Things is my favourite album. I don’t know, actually. That’s probably a lie. It’s so close.
“Capturing Moods” is uplifting and beautiful and patient. “Paint’s Peeling” is quite different–slightly unhappy and unsure. “Pictures of Success” is a favourite, though, from Take-Offs and Landings. “Mexico can fucking wait.”
Maybe tomorrow I’ll do something different. Maybe.
