this summer i mostly read memoirs by women.
The Folded Clock - Heidi Julavits
The Odd Woman and the City - Vivian Gornick
Feelings are Facts - Yvonne Ranier
Talk - Linda Rosenkrantz
(not technically a memoir but a real life recounting if you will)
now it's fall.

- listening to Cate Le Bon at nearly all hours
full credit to Trouble for playing this song, the lure that drew me in.
- the World Cup final is tomorrow
i'll spare you my soccer analysis and simply say that i am simultaneously elated that Germany made it and so ready for the tournament to be done. i need my life back.
- i just finished reading Telex From Cuba by Rachel Kushner
i want to read everything she writes. now i'd like to re-watch Memories of Underdevelopment and think about Cuba some more.
- we still haven't bought a couch

my new (but long desired) Jesse Kamm tote.
my un-styled bookshelf containing measuring tape, sunglasses, regular glasses, cell phone, lip balm, ipod (my one sort of tech concession because i cannot handle people talking on their phones on the bus), tinted lip balm (from Fat & the Moon), beat up notebook, broken in hi-tops, wooden pocket mirror that i've had since high school, tissue box, geode, volunteer name tag, ribbon that accompanied a present that i feel bad getting rid of, hanging planter that needs hanging, and books.
our pistachio ice cream colored walls.
