What's on your perfect playlist for a cross-country road trip?
My country is very small. NVM, let's pretend this is a big country, and driving for five days is a normal thing to do:

Day One
1. Thin Air / Aunt Jessica - for the early morning
2. The Raincoats until lunchtime
3. '60s French girl-bands (Clothilde, L'idol des jaunes, etc) afterwards, if the weather is nice.
4. Yann Tiersen, if it is raining.
5. In the evening, First Aid Kit
6. Very, very late at night, I'll listen only to electronica.

Day Two
1. Lisa Ono in the morning
2. The Greatest Show on Earth / The Felice Brothers - when I'm passing through an old, small town
3. Sun Ra for lunch
4. Some songs for my companion and I to sing along to, in the afternoon. Both of us have to know them... The Smiths? Or maybe the whole of Nipper's Greatest Hits: 1901 - 1920. :)
5. When the sun is setting, one of the many wistful cosmic folky Doctor Who fanmixes I have...
6. Stopping by a train station at night, Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 2

Day Three
1. In the morning (today is less lazy than the previous mornings because there is a long way to drive before lunch): Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars!
2. Noontime - the sun is shining very meanly - the soundtrack of La Strada

I've just come back from the most horrifically boring party ever; my twin cousins are turning two today, and somehow that warrants a four-hour-long barbecue dinner despite the fact that the two of them will never remember anything. Watching adults turn, when confronted with babies, into idiots who sing off-key is neither amusing nor enlightening. MY RELATIVES ARE BORING BORING BORING and SAD.

On a much happier note (I'm very fond of this phrase):

1. I have a bag of dolly mixtures on my desk.
2. Tomorrow is Sunday. THERE IS NO SCHOOL ON SUNDAYS.
3. LEE PACE!!!!!

After a week of watching Pushing Daisies (thanks, Grace, for lending me the DVDs!), I have come to the slightly alarming conclusion that Lee Pace's attractiveness can at times equal/surpass (in my eyes) David Tennant's... OH DEAR. I am having FANDOM ISSUES. I find it really difficult to be deeply engrossed in more than one -verse at once...


His height is adorable. (I always fall for tall men! O:)
