A geeky girl living in the big city, making her way, the only way she knows how... no wait, that's The Dukes of Hazzard. Who am I again? Oh yeah, a pop culture obsessed writer, publishing person, and occasional nerd. And I'm getting married. I talk about that, too.

Out of touch, Out of touch, Out of toooooooouch

So Doyce and I went to see Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist this evening (go see it! Read the book, too!) and as I stayed through the credits, as is my wont, I saw only two band names I recognized in a HUGE list of music that appears in the film (not counting the composer, who did incidental music and a song or two, and also did the tunes for Rushmore). Two names! And one of them was the Spice Girls!

So I have to ask -- am I completely out of touch in terms of contemporary music, or is this movie, which is about the underground rock scene, supposed to make me feel old and out-of-it?

I think I'm in a Slump

Not a housing slump or a market slump, at least not personally, thank god, just a sort of non-specific activity slump. I was so excited to find a Nia class out here when I moved, but the 9am time is killing me -- if I'm out of bed already, I'm working, and if I'm just getting out of bed -- well, I just don't move that quickly in the mornings. I think I need to just drive my boxed bike to the bike store and ask them to reassemble it. Each time I think we're going to do it, it doesn't get done.

And I'm out here in beautiful Colorado, bike trails all around, and I haven't been on my bike in months. Unacceptable!

I need to make time for myself during the work day, I think, and take my lunch break at the gym, swimming or something. Something. Anything.

Else how am I going to be fit enough to tromp around NYC next month in heels?
