Mushroom, Mushroom

The sun is shining, my stereo is singing and life is maple-sweet.

Before I get into this short entry, I’m going to go out on a limb and predict that Silversun Pickups will soon be one of my favourite bands. After hearing two songs I feel like I’m experiencing the best of mid-90s bands like Smashing Pumpkins and Limblifter afresh. It’s good.

Since my last entry sharing bits about my life, I’ve worked, battled off a cold with orange juice and tea, and spent portions of my days off over at Gwen’s place. Gwen’s terribly marvelous, beautiful and endlessly fun to make out with, so I seldom want to leave there. As you can see in the photo above, she’s stolen my mala, though.

What else have I been up to lately? I’ve been eating a lot of mushrooms. For the past 11 days I’ve had some mushrooms with at least one meal of the day. I’m getting hooked on the blissful fungi, and I’m not minding it. I just hope I don’t OD on them and end up disliking mushrooms.

This week I watched Firefly a couple times with Gwen. I’ve fallen in love with the show, and it may very well be my favourite series now. The dialogue is brilliant and the mix of western and sci-fi reminds me of my favourite cartoon from when I was a kid, Galaxy Rangers. How’d I take so long to discover it?

This past week marked the first year anniversary of starting work with the hotel I’m currently employed at. It’s hard to believe all the changes and events that have taken place in the past 12 months. I feel much more lucid because of my Practice, which I have to say is the biggest change. But comparing last July to this one, I can’t help but see parallels and be reminded that part of any year seems to be the most transformative and eventful for me.

Happy belated Firefox Day!
