Oh, heavens, I’m full. Like, even my stretchy pants are struggling. This morning I had brunch at a local breakfast joint here in Novato called Marvin’s. That was a couple of hours ago, and I’m still beyond stuffed. I think I even ate the plate when I finished what was on it — two eggs Benedict topped with spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes and avocados (no Hollandaise sauce for me, please) and a big helping of hash browns. All washed down with about four cups of coffee (WHEE!). If you’re ever in the neighborhood, swing by Marvin’s for breakfast or brunch if you can. The food is delish!
How’s it going today? Tabs is soaking up a little sunshine by the window. I can tell he wants to go for a walk outside, but my allergies have put me on self-imposed house arrest. I think I’ll stick to writing, surfing the web and updating my running music list instead.
I haven’t updated it in months. I know for sure I’m adding a few tunes from the soundtrack to Once. Have you seen it? It’s an Irish film about two friends, one a struggling street musician, and the other a woman he meets one night during one of his performances. SO touching, soulful and bittersweet. Their relationship really got to me, and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since.
Also going on the list — a few songs from a British band called The Go! Team. Their stuff has a lot of kick to it. It’s peppy, with a good dose of hip-hop, kinda like Gnarls Barkley meets Cibo Matto.
If you like their sound and live in the Bay Area, they’re playing at The Mezzanine next Wednesday, April 20 in SF. I bet they’d be a lot of fun to see live.
What are you up to now? Can you come say hi in the open thread?
A little about the open threadâ€¦
If youâ€™re new to the open thread, here it is in a nutshell:
It’s just a post where we leave comments for each other and talk about whatever’s on our minds — music, food, beauty (of course!), TV shows, pets, whatever! Stop by if/when you can.
Can’t wait to see you inside!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Just so I can say there was something makeup related in this post, NARS summer 2011 is now online. WOOT!
