Kissed my boyfriend, Teppie this morning and felt nauseous. I think it might have been all the chocolate cookies I ate last night combined with the film of sardines coating his lips.

Our friend, a respected pothead claims the newest Arcade Fire well lives up to all its hype. His lovely girlfriend, Gigi, who hates pot, recommended us to Lily Allen.

Last week, I was quite disturbed to discover that of the 100 most important novels listed in the New York Times I've only read 12. Of the guardian list I've read 15. This disturbed me because I have a degree in English although some of the books on the very Brit centric list are oddly obscure titles. I'm now reading Tolstoy's Anna Karenina.
