I'm currently obsessed with The Morning Benders. Now that's an understatement.

I've been raving about Excuses for a few months now and have since moved to other tracks. I've had Wet Cement stuck in my head. I think it's going to stay there permanently until I find out what it's about. I'm so tempted to ask @ohchu.

The band just won more brownie points when I discovered they released a FREE album consist of covers. We all know I had covers. But I'm bias, dammit. They covered Cryin by Roy Orbison, The Cardigans.. AND The Ronettes. If you don't know by now, I love The Ronettes. Screw that, I adore any girl band from that era. I want to be in one, remember.

The Bedroom Covers:
1. Crying - Roy Orbison
2. Mother and Child Reunion - Paul Simon
3. Why Don't They Let Us Fall In Love? - The Ronettes
4. Lovefool - The Cardigans
5. I Won't Share You - The Smiths
6. He's A Rebel - The Crystals
7. Marie - Randy Newman
8. Fools Rush In - Johnny Mercer/Rube Bloom
9. Temptation Inside Your Heart - Velvet Underground
10. Dreams - Fleetwood Mac
11. Pull Up The Roots - Talking Heads
12. Caroline, No - Beach Boys remix (bonus track)
12.5 Why Don't They Let Us Fall In Love? (live daytrotter version!)

There is a reason why Kurt Halsey is one of my favourite artist. Poetry in art.

It doesn't help that he echoes my thoughts in some of his works. I personally can relate to the girl in glasses or the girl holding her cat. That other girl who's got earphones on. Her too.

When I get my own place, I'll make sure I'll hang his stuff.

How's work? I'm chugging through. First 'professional' meeting on Thursday. What should I wear?

I'm adjusting better than I thought I would. I'm still pretty wary, work-wise. Lady B is slowly unloading infinite amount of work. She was supposed to be away the whole week. But decided against it. Just my luck.

Third day tomorrow. Ready, set, go.

God, I love this guy. Why can't he be mine?

Interviewer: Is it true that sometimes you travel to tournaments in a private jet?
Ernests Gulbis: Yes, and I also have ten helicopters, a submarine and a spaceship.
Interviewer: What about when you were arrested for being with a prostitute in Stockholm?
Ernests Gulbis: It was great. When I meet a girl, I'm not the type to ask her what her profession is.

I fuckin want to have his babies. Period.

It's not official but I'm already burden with my 'new' work. Lady B literally transformed into a monster when she ordered me to get everything done in two hours. "I know you haven't officially move. But I need your help with blahblahblah. It's already 10am. I want everything by noon. Before lunch. It's urgent." I took one and a half. Was I proving a point? Perhaps. But I envision panic attacks and a possibility of high blood pressure. What did I get myself into?

It's too late to turn back. I don't quit anyway. I'm gonna stick it out like I always do. Here's the thing. I don't look like it. But I'm quite a rebel at heart. I love proving people wrong. I love to rattle folks unwittingly. Nothing in your face. It's just not my style. I'm hoping I'll last about three months. Or else I'm screwed. Unless there's Plan B. Which right now, is a blur.

The Doctor together with Amelia Pond saved my otherwise sucky Monday. I'm SO obsessed with Doctor Who right now. It's not even funny. I just wished more people watch the damn show.

I'm moving up.

It could get interesting.
