"jacket pockets like second-hand bookshops"

"and hair the result of an encounter with a ghost in a wind tunnel."

i'm not exactly sure what all that means, other than it's some britishy person complaining abt another britishy person's personal style.  i bet if british people rapped, it would sound like that.  but we all know that only ex-british colonials do the u.k. rapping.  anyway, this is what happens when i procrastinate and click on weird yahoo news links re: fashion.  i don't think i'd mind jacket pockets like second-hand bookshops tho -- sounds kind of like a shabby poet out for some kind of grand adventure.

been running around like a maniac lately with turning in grant apps, putting midterm together, lecturing, grading papers, working on paper proposals for mla next year, and blah.  i feel like my head's not all together.  scattered and rushed and probably forgetting something really big.

it felt like early spring today with spotty sunshine and huge blustery winds that kept threatening to upend my floaty sundress.  listened to some lonesome crowded west and got in the mood for road trips and weddings and adventures.  i caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan't wait for some SPRING and some hot humid midwestern summertime!  i don't even love the midwest, you know, but GOD DAMN if i don't want some heat up in this bitch.  i'm gonna lose it if i can't put sandals on soon.  this morning, i painted my toe nails hot pink in anticipation.
