DC Diaries: The aftermath | Stars of Leo

Helllllooooooooooooo!!

I am back home now. Friday was a really terrible day. I developed a full blown cold and I've been rushing through all stages of it throughout the weekend.

Friday it was general mal-being, fever, head aches, stuffiness, runny nose. Saturday was that fake-feeling-better day, and I had adopted the sexy sick voice. Sunday (today) it was coughing, which I believe is the final stage of the cold, and I am spending all day on my couch watching sappy movies and hoping to be better by tomorrow. The photo below was the view I enjoyed most of the weekend.


Tylenol is my best friend. Kleenex is my lover.

Today I've already watched Diary of a Mad Black Woman, and City of Angels. It maybe about time to whip out a book, probably. My favorite part of the day was finding out from Brendan that the new M. Ward album has a song named Stars of Leo.



I was born on the first day of December
That means the beginning of the end
Between the last in the line of an emotional time
And the patriarchal rash in the wind

And I'm overwhelmed at the range of emotion
I can ride in some high, lonesome sound
I get so low I need a little pick-me-up
I get so high I need a bring-me-down
I get so high I need a bring-me-down

And when I'm high above the sea of love
With the stars of Leo shining
Well, that's a long way to fall into the blue
But it's just a matter of time until I do, yeah

But now I'm under the ground in New York City
I miss the water from the wells back home
And that's exactly what the papers said would happen
If I keep boarding crowded subways alone
So I tried to surround myself with real love
You know, the kind that make them wheels go 'round
I get so low I need a little pick-me-up
I get so high I need a bring-me-down

Like when I'm high above that sea of love
With the stars of Leo shining
Well, that's the hardest way to fall into the blue
But it's just a matter of time until I do, yeah

Like when I'm high above the sea of love
With the stars of Leo shining...

City of Angels is a horrible movie, but I'm glad you're feeling better. I also saw a store called "House of Leo" in NYC while walking to Google this week. I wanted to take a picture of it, but the weather was grey and cloudy and I thought I'd take it another day when it was sunnier, but then forgot. Now I have a reason to return...
