I've been sort of wondering what was up with fiona apple, seeing as how she hasn't come out with an album in quite some time. via catherine's pita.

these little (live!) bonsai plant keychains are super-neat. from the ever-intriguing boing boing, which also linked to a fabulous t-shirt, "the blog" - done in the style of fifties horror film posters (Inane! Rambling! Rarely Updated!) - although I were really to wear it I'd feel like I was turning into the comic book store guy from the simpsons.

Although my transformation from linguistics to american studies is fast complete, I still enjoy the occasional informative online reading, like the language log, which I saw after reading this article in the economist about corpus linguistics and using google to research it. Coincidentally I'm going to a party next weekend where I will rubbing elbows with a corpus/compuatational linguistics crowd, mainly from my old job back in the giddy new economy days. the economist article, btw, I originally found at the morning news.

oh, and my new york photos are up on flickr. most of them didn't turn out, but there are some nice ones of me and my boyfriend. the frog pictures are pretty blurry so I only put up one or two.

This week's (January 17, 2005) New Yorker has a profile anime film director hayao miyazaki, who made such classics as my neighbor totoro and spirited away. The profile itself isn't available online, but there is an interview with the writer margaret talbot. Anyway, the profile is very interesting and worth a read.

I have some old links that I've forgotten about - including interesting weblog the insufficient homosexual, link from la.comfidential, which sometimes has popups but is a good read.

kottke.org links to a site discussing a camera that was sent through the mail with instructions requesting postal employees to take pictures with it.

Sunday, January 02, 2005 :::

Had a good new year's, chilling in the marais and then heading to the banks of the seine to watch the fireworks and drink champagne. and then discovered that the front desk guy at my hotel also decided to take a little time off and so I was locked out. he came back after a while and a night of wandering the streets of paris was thankfully averted. Said goodbye to my friends and have some time to myself for a couple of days - although I didn't do too much yesterday since it was new years' day and everything was closed. plus I had gotten food poisoning which kind of put a damper on my activities. took it easy today although I did go to the musee d'orsay - it was free day, unbeknownst to me but knownst to a lot of other people judging from the crowds. Had lunch in a very parisian brasserie and gave thanks for my returning appetite.

btw, I'm taking pictures which I plan on posting when I get back home.
