I got an invite to a friend's birthday party. Her husband suggested - in the invitation - that an iPhone might make a good gift. Really? Really?? I can't even afford an app right now, much less the whole friggin' phone.
And finally - Why have people abandoned the adverb? Where has the "-ly" suffix gone? Don't people know you can't "live adventurous" or "talk soft" or "dance bad"? I hate it. It makes me crazy. And then I scream at the people on the TV. And they can't hear me. Sigh

Last night's film was Waltz with Bashir - an amazing piece of animation from an Israeli filmmaker recounting his experiences in Lebanon. It's bad-ass and you should watch it! And totally not bad watching the dub version - not as annoying since it's animated and they got actors with great accents so it seems "right".
On to the HORROR - oh yeah, horror movies - love them!! If you do too then I've got some good ones for ya: Let the Right One In is a Swedish vampire movie that presents a totally new take on the genre. I looooved it - very cool! And then we have Martyrs - a French horror film that is truly the most disturbing thing I've seen in awhile. This movie is NOT for the faint of heart, however, if you love dark, dark stuff you'll love this one too.
So - there you have it - three great foreign films to add to your Netflix account - go - expand your mind and enjoy!
Oh yeah - the millinery triumph? Ok - well, I went to Corn-Dog-O-Rama - East Atlanta's annual festival celebrating the greatest food-on-a-stick of them all - and while there I spied this gentleman, who had created a hat out of a watermelon and two corndogs - what a perfect summer fashion statement - if you’re CRAZY! Sir, I salute you and your hat - God Bless America!

Recently I made a photo collage of other places I frequent when it's dark out:Ok - well - now you know.

My life is a train wreck, a hot mess, an unnatural disaster. Sometimes. And so, you know, that's how I'm gonna write it out. Just like it happens.
If blood and sex and drugs and cursing upset you, then should probably stop reading now and never return to this page. Just sayin'.

Impressions of a Southern Spring with Furry Foreground
Monday, April 6, 2009
My name is Alex and I live in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S. of A. Actually, my full name is Alexandra, but nobody calls me that. I've had several last names, and even more nicknames. I've lived in Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, Hawaii and Australia. I have been a brunette, a dirty blond, a platinum blond, a redhead and now - black, black, black, as the darkest night. Like my soul. BWAHAHAHAHA. Ok. Sorry.
I like cheese, Chuck Palahniuk novels, nice eyelashes, vodka, laughing and making people laugh, the Ramones, low-rider cars, art galleries, shiny things, mixed martial arts, bad reality TV, red wine, traveling, hair dye, Coen Brothers movies, clean sheets, good conversation, vampires, mangoes, vinyl, extreme glamour, pistachio ice cream, real tits, and freestyle moto/bmx.....plus lots of other things, but that's a pretty good representation.
