Consumables #3

The Enchantress of Florence, by Salman Rushdie
This is one of those bastards that takes like 100 pages to really get you into it (which is almost a third of the way through), then it gets cooking. Which is annoying, Sal Bass.

Golden Globes:
Sophia Loren can really rock those rich old lady glasses, can't she?

Disco: Spinning the Story
A non-depressing movie about the 70s! I didn't know they made those!

Weeks and weeks ago, Hopscotch, who is a pregnant lady herself, posted a link to that Garfunkel and Oates song on her blog. For some reason, that song did not really stick in my head at the time. Also, this week I heard "Business Time" by Flight of the Conchords on the radio. For some reason, these two songs have created a weird remix in my mind, so that every time I am in need of a song to sing to myself, I mix up "Effin' son of a gun..." with "It's business. Business time." How am I doing this??

I had never heard "Pregnant Women Are Smug," and oh my hell I laughed so hard. "You're just giving birth nowww ... you're not Mother Earth nowww!"

She was rockin' those glasses. I hope they catch on with the pre-senior citizen set.
