You are what you love, not what loves you back...
I've been listening to my new Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins CD (thanks, Michael!) nonstop for about a week now. "You Are What You Love" is my favorite (she's an amazing songwriter: "This is no great illusion/When I'm with you I'm looking for a ghost/Or invisible reasons/To fall out of love and run screaming from our home...").

Besides Rabbit Fur Coat, here's my What I Love That Doesn't Love Me Back list for today:
*Deborah Harry (I get to go see Blondie in June...thanks, MK!) won't give me the time of day.
* Laurie Notaro makes me laugh until I cry, but she doesn't even know I'm alive.
* My LPs don't snuggle with me on the couch, so I think they're destined for Accessory Land.
* Two words from my lips that can make any of my friends run from the room screaming: Seth McFarlane.
* Heavy strings, tuned low and played hard, always remind me that I never had a chance to meet Stevie Ray Vaughn (because if I had, he would have loved soon as I was legal).
* I have so much literary love for this journal that I check the shelves at B&N every time I'm there, even though it only comes out 4x a year. It's the literary equivalent of riding my bike by the house of the boy I have a crush on even when he's at his dad's house for the summer.

And you know I love you too, right? Even if you don't love me back, I'm just going to love and love and not care if you even glance in my direction. I know you're out there, barely paying attention, thinking about someone else and wondering how to let me down gently.


  1. I got nothing for love for ya honey!

  2. KLo, because I'm all in a sentimental place right now I'll tell you a few of the reasons I love you.

    I love you for being the person I knew I was going to latch on to in a new job I knew I was going to hate.

    I love that we could stand in piles of bird shit and still have the funniest and brightest conversations of my day.

    I love that even when I pissed you off so royally you eyeballs would nearly pop out of your head you could still make me laugh.

    I love that even if I didn't want to do something you could make me because I thought it might make you laugh.

    You had me at bitch, bitch.

  3. Ha. I love Charlie's sentimental side.

    Here's why I love you: Because if I didn't, I'd hate myself, too.

  4. Thanks for melting my cold, cold heart into a little puddle on the floor. Charlie, I knew from the day I helped you pick out a leisure suit at Granny's Goodies that you were the person I would most want to cut fourth period with.

  5. I love Rilo Kiley and Jenny Lewis! Also, I would never let you down gently. :)

  6. "You Are What You Love".
    I heard that song last week for the first time on an episode of "Ghost Whisperer" called "The Vanishing".
    I had to get it. Thanks for providing me with the name of the song and the artist.
