What is the use of a book, without pictures or conversations?

Well I don't have much new to report today. I hope you like the title, it's from Alice in Wonderland. I also considered:
I wonder if I've been changed in the night? Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is 'Who in the world am I?' Ah, that's the great puzzle!
Reeling and Writhing, of course, to begin with, and then the different branches of arithmetic -- Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision.
But I thought they were too long. How great is Alice in Wonderland? I read the book while I was "fixing" it at Book Repair, great. I've seen the movie many times, great. So, I started exercising again...running and some weight room drills. Let me say, my legs are killing me. I think my quad muscles must have atrophied...for real. For like a weak I struggled walking. It was like the muscles in my legs were so sore I had to waddle, and then I couldn't remember how to walk normal. Terrible. But now it's better.

Well, I'm really covering the festival scene this season with both Coachella and now Exit Festival (yes in Serbia, that's right, and at a fortress). Here are the rumored performers for Exit, artists written in bold letters are confirmed:

Daft Punk, Klaxons, Radiohead, Justice, Thievery Corporation, Moby, The Ting Tings, MGMT, Hot Chip, Faithless, The Killers, Madness, The Arctic Monkeys, Kraftwerk.

I cannot tell you how much I hope Radiohead plays. I am not being melodramatic when I say they changed my life. I started listening to them during some very formative years (ie 12-present), and music was/is a big part of my life.

OH! I've got something: After two days without internet, and a lifetime without cable we now have both. Seriously though it's ridiculous, there are so many channels to watch and I can never decide on one thing, let alone agree on one thing with someone else. How does everyone do it? Good thing I work at 6:30 in the morning otherwise I really think I would watch TV all night, how does one not with Law and Order, Project Runway, and the Animal Planet/Discovery ALWAYS on?

holy crap kimberly. if you get to see Radiohead in Serbia I think I may be so jealous it would be a sin. But I think it is an OK sin b/c that is something everyone should covet and desire in their life. You are my hero for being so cool.
