Tori Amos has a new CD coming out on September 8 - Native Invader. She pre-released three songs from it. One of them in particular is very good (Up the Creek) and the other two are good too. This is a relief to me, because her last CD was kind of bland.

I'm reading a great book called Standard Deviation by Katherine Heiny. Very funny, lots of New York moments. Quirky, recognizable characters. In fact, it reminds me of The Accidental Tourist (without the sad parts). The Accidental Tourist is one of my favorite books.
I feel a little sad. Our fish died. Zoe is relatively unbothered and just wants to get a new one tomorrow.

I like the absence of rules.
I was reading a friend's blog and she used "dog leg" as a verb. I looked it up and it means to bend sharply, like a dog's hind leg.

Today I went to a restaurant that I've been to a million times, and ordered something different. It's nice to step out of your comfort zone sometimes. I got a tofu eggplant stir fry, which barely had any eggplant, but lots of other vegetables. And it came with a nice sauce and white rice. On the drinks menu, there was Justin Cucumberlake (but it was way too early for gin). A blackboard on the wall said, Chering is Caring.

Our fish is thriving. His name is Chase now, so he won't have gender identity issues. I was worried about him initially; he was floating listlessly the day we got him. But after I cleaned his tank, he perked right up. It's a nice small fishbowl, so it's fairly easy to clean.
