HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LAUREN!
While I was on my way home from my friend Michelle's birthday party tonight, I heard Nirvana's version of "The Man Who Sold the World" on the radio. Nirvana played it on MTV Unplugged, and that recording is my favorite Nirvana album. Anyway, it's one of my favorite cover songs of all time. David Bowie wrote a great song, but I think Nirvana's execution was superb.
I have two friends with upcoming birthdays, and because I can't just walk out to my parents' garage and grab one of my mom's handcrafted greeting cards, I had to settle for the selection at Target. I went there after work today thinking, "Okay, I'm gonna go in, walk in, walk out, and come home."
In the last week, I've tried some things I'd never done before:
I loved Lindsey's post called "Why Leezy Lindsey?" Sometimes I browse to that post and leave it there, so that I can listen to "Leezy Lindsey" over and over again. And it reminds me of songs with my name in them. Well, with a name like Sara, you can bet there's a lot. These are the three I like best, though:
I've joked about it a lot, but it seems that Google really will take over the world. We've seen the company grow from its humble but promising beginnings in the late 90's. We've seen it produce the best search engine the world has ever known, and we've seen it build arguably the best interactive map on the Web. And now, behold:
Yesterday I visited Woodruff Library at Emory with my friend Rose. We both had fun discovering a new place. We lazily perused the library museum and tried not to make too much noise. I kept my eyes open for perfect study spots. The periodical reading room is a dream-come-true, and there are several inviting nooks. We lounged around on this funky chair thing on the basement floor, and after a while, we walked back to the car and headed home.
So, Lindsey "tagged" me. I'm not exactly sure how that term came to be used in the blogging world or who was the first person to use it, but it seems like a fun idea. What I have to do is list five things you may not know about me. I'm not going to say they're things you definitely don't know about me, though, because you just might. I'm pretty much an open book. But let's see if I can "shock" you. :)
I spent the night at my parents' house last night, so in order to get to work on time today, I had to leave their house at about 6:15. Of course I didn't actually leave until 6:30, but I wouldn't be me if I wasn't running late.
