in the ears: Zoe Keating - Tetrishead
That little bitch went to Peru without me. I do talk to her on AIM on occasion, but she has a little difficulty because she's not used to speaking in English much and her keyboard is full of mystery keys which may well doom the entire world if she uses them. However, during our last conversation, after I pressed her for details, she was able to inform me of at least a couple of bits of Peruvian knowledge, which I have mostly paraphrased here for your viewing pleasure.
1. It's very hot in the day and very cold at night, but nobody really heats or cools anything.
2. Learning Quechua sucks. It uses ten million suffixes and weird consonant sounds from the back of the throat that do not want to exist.
3. Taxi drivers are wannabe racecar drivers and are usually trying to run over pedestrians. They are crazy and make her very afraid.
4. You do not have to keep cheese in the refrigerator.
I haven't seen her since June and won't see her again until December. I owe that little wanker a Seva shirt, too.
Love you, Kate. Get yourself a damn LJ account so you can read this.
In other news, Dune has consumed my brain. Why oh why can't I have my very own stillsuit?
