We got it, you want it! CD collection (indie, rock, jazz, reggae, more) - hundreds to choose from! Vintage and contemporary men's and women's clothes (majority small sizes), music gear, furniture, comic books, books, collectibles, knick knacks and all kinds of other stuff. And did we say, CDs!

Sunday: 10 - 3

Come over. Hang out. Should be sunny...

Now that is odd... [Nov. 8th, 2007|03:08 pm]

They hired a developer at work who has my last name. In my entire life, I have never met anyone with my last name that I was not related to. And those are small numbers. I come from a relatively small family. My grandfather was adopted, and there is not a whole lot of family history there. Is it a bizarre coincidence that I finally have run into another Graven - at the place I work, very far from where I was born and raised - or is it a long lost family member I have never met? Weird.

In other news...Cleveland is cold. I have seen some snowflakes buzz around, but nothing that sticks. My grandma's state makes me sad and leaves me with an empty spot that was my childhood. I see her for short periods but really have done nothing but work ridiculous amounts and eat ice cream since I've arrived. I have not had the time to do what I hoped I would accomplish by getting away. Essentially, empty my mind and see where that took me. My mind is still entirely too full...and I am still entirely too messy. But the ice cream is yummy.

But, a petite bit of retail therapy and some girl time today with my aunt and cousin were helpful. Tonight I am visiting with my other cousin and his sons - for the love. They are intense boys...that should kick my ass in yet another way.

The Irony, part II [Dec. 1st, 2006|12:14 pm]

[Current Location |home with the kitties]
[mood |grr]

Today I attempted to go to work since I have "that" meeting to run every Friday. I handed off the speaking to someone with a voice, as mine is now completely gone. It was quite entertaining for all watching me try to answer questions with my hands and have to write my thoughts down on paper for others to speak. I came in thinking that my boss would have issue with me being out again today - it is a big event day with all kinds of new things to train. Ironically, he basically told me to get the hell out - in a caring way of course ;)

So, I went to the doctor and have officially been diagnosed with laryngitis (sp?). I have never had it before, and I never realized how hard it is to get things done when you can't speak. After my appt. I went to Whole Foods so I could get some feel good snacks. Why is it that people always want to engage you in coversation at the worst times? And of course I'd run in to an old friend I haven't seen in a while.

My throat hurts really bad, and the jury is still out as to whether or not I have strep on top of it all. I guess I'll find that out on Monday. Talk about being hit by a bus. And, it's looking like my trip to Portland tomorrow will have to be postponed, which sucks cuz I was really looking forward to seeing some old friends. That, and I've already bought a train ticket, and I don't know what the exchange policy.

Damn damn damn.

[music |in reality, none]

So, the smart folks at In Touch magazine recently ran an item titled "Yikes! Jumpsuits Are Back!" complete with photos of Tori Spelling, Carmen Electra, and some other chick. First off, Yikes? Whatever bitches! Secondly, WHERE THE FUCK HAVE YOU BEEN? Jumpsuits have ALWAYS been back.

And on a side note...I just realized (courtesy of a friend) that I had my headphones on, but there was nothing playing...OMG. TGIF.

Oh, and Vive la France.

Edit: Need I say more?

[music |Amadou & Mariam]

Last night I went to see Amadou & Mariam at the Showbox. OMG, it was fucking fantastic. After catching a bit of them at Coachella, I've been hooked. Last night's show was one of those events where I was reminded how awesome the power of music can be. I was lifted out of my daily doldrums and negativity and into a euphoric state where everything was perfect. I didn't stop dancing...the whole place was dancing. Everyone was smiling and happy. People were considerate of each other's space, and the whole thing was beautiful. The band was having the time of their lives playing. It was truly inspiring. Pure heartfelt music for pure pleasure. All I can say is, wow.

High Dive Tonight [Jun. 15th, 2006|11:38 am]
Gravy
Last night I was lucky enough to be invited over to a friend's place for a traditional Japanese spread complete with the most delicious Saki I've ever had. The food was prepared by 3 of the cutest Japanese boys who are in visiting from Yokohama. They were so much fun. They have been spending their time touring around, record shopping, and performing with their band and doing DJ sets here and there (they DJ'd at the Bad Juju on Monday). Tonight they will be performing at the High Dive in Fremont. If you're in the hood, stop in. DJ Macky Ramone will be spinning the classics - punk and '60s. Should be a good time with some real nice folks.
