lazy post.

I couldn't remember the name of this song, but my 'roommate' happens to be a information professional and managed to track down the very song I meant with only the following description: 'I don't remember the name of it, but I think it was in a macintosh ad and she has a jewish name... i think she is Israeli. Do you know which song I mean?'

In the interest of proper credit, I have nothing to do with this video other than admiring it. I found it on youtube. The singer is Yael Naim, she is in fact israeli, and this song did show up on teevee selling various apple products. Steve Jobs himself picked it out. I always thought he was a robot with an apple designed friendly chip installed.

boxes and resolutions.

The kindest words ever said about me were "Some people talk about thinking outside the box. Pamplemousse doesn't even know that there is a box."

This year, after having my life turned upside down and all around, I am resolving to stay out of boxes, even the pink ones and the green ones and the blue ones and the yellow ones... that all look just the same, even though I went to summer camp, and then to the University were I could have come out all the same, but didn't.

I mostly have my habit of being contrary and my disdain of most authority to thank for this.

Perhaps you want to have the same clever resolution. You can steal it from me and I don't mind, since I just stole half the lyrics from Malvina Reynolds anyway.
