. This lamp looks like a lot of fun to make.
. Rather excited about Dear Mr. Potter,!
. I've had a Last.fm VIP subscription for a few months now. Last.fm gave it to me as a promotional gift since I was one of the first users to use their updated iPhone app. So, for the last few months I've been enjoying commercial free music, I can use Last.fm on my mobile devices (ie: iPhone, iPod.), and I get access to more in-depth charts and features. Well, my subscription runs out in about a month, and I have to decide whether I can live with the downgrade, or whether I'm willing to dish out three dollars a month to have the VIP perks I've been getting these past few months for free. I'm more and more feeling like it's worth the three dollars. Thoughts?
. Last night's Good Friday church service was beautiful. I love walking around the cathedral by candlelight, especially when I can see the reflections of the whole congregations candles in the glass of our community building. It's absolutely gorgeous. A sort of somber beauty, but beauty nonetheless.
. I've yet to start on an Easter basket this year. I did them for the family the last two years, and somehow it's fallen by the wayside this year. I'm hoping there are some stores still open this evening so I can speed shop and put together a basket for the family for tomorrow.
. Icelandic music makes me swoon.
. I've started reading a Japanese comic I was a fan of a few years ago again. Honey and Clover, I always loved the soft colors in the covers (see the photo above), and how lovely Umino's characters were, both in the illustrations and in the story. I stopped reading manga a few years ago, but always missed this series. I think the last one I had read was volume six, and I was never able to find any of the newer volumes, but I was at the library the other day and they had volumes seven through ten. I have some light reading for the next few days now. If you like sweet stories and comics (and don't mind reading right to left) I suggest you pick up the first volume of Honey and Clover. It's lovely.
There's also a live-action Japanese drama out there... I remember watching a few episodes online at one point.
. I'm not at the RRT tonight... and as much as I'd have loved to have gone it's nice to spend Easter Saturday with my family, and I know I made someone super happy by selling them my ticket :)
. I have this yearning to do a thoughts-from-places esque video blog and upload it to my vimeo. Any thoughts? Tips? I have no idea where to begin.
. Hope you all have a wonderful Easter/Passover/regular weekend!
