we are family (etc. etc.)

my sister was in town over the weekend.





thursday trill and i went to see "shutter" at the ritz -- an american remake of the thai horror flick from 2004, it was good, but a little glossy. friday we watched the original on VCD and agreed it was better. lots of screaming going on at casa del milla.

hung out with my sister and the nieces and nephews on saturday -- we rented a mazda miata from phillycarshare.org and zoomed around with the top down. it sure was fun, but don't expect to travel with anything more than say a pair of gloves. there's no room in that car for anything other than people (there's plenty of room for tall people though, which was very nice).

then trillian and i went to see august wilson's "the piano lesson" at the arden theater on sunday. it was a nice theater, i hadn't been before. the play was incredible -- three hours, not a one of them dull. so many lines, especially for Kes Khemnu who charged through the play with nonstop mile-a-minute monologues, a wonderful performance -- guns and ghosts and whiskey. we had a swell time. it's always a swell time when trillian's around.

"Amanda, I'm in love"

I had the Dresden Dolls song "Delilah" stuck in my head this morning because [exciting news still not ready for prime time] -- I'd never really listened to the words until, I'm sad to admit, like, oh, last Thursday. And I was like "sweet barking cheese, that's a beautiful song." I was pretty cowed by what a beautiful song it was. Really. Previously I'd figured it was about a car trip or a hair cut, but it's not.

Did I mention I was impressed?

Anyway, so back to today when I thought, "Dang, I should listen to that song." So I looked for it on youtube and what do I see?

Milla's house!

how cool. It starts off with a shot in my friend Karen's attic and ends up with a great Kelly Davidson photo that I wish I'd taken.



It's such a great song.
