going to the mountain and we're gonna get married

So, I may be broke and I may be really tired, but I just saw beautiful fall leaves and got to feel the crisp air of autumn!

One of my good girlfriends from highschool, Robyn, now lives in Boone and got married there this past weekend. I drove with another girlfriend from highschool, Kristen. We stopped in Hilton Head Is., SC on the way up to visit my friend Steve and his mom. The weather was a cool 60 degrees and a bit overcast.

Afterwords, we headed to Boone, which is just fantastic. Lovely and small and so picturesque. Like a little Colorado town nestled in the Appalachian mountains. We spent a day with the bride and groom to be at their house, then moved over to the resort where the wedding was going to be held. The wedding was completely fall themed and gorgeous. I took a ton of pictures of a hike that we went on the day before the wedding and of the wedding itself.

The rest of the pictures can be seen here:

Take your s*** and go home

This definitely warrants being typed in all caps - I AM SO SICK OF THESE SPAM COMMENTS!!!!!! Last week, I had my car broken into. I imagine that it was kids because nothing was stolen, just everything in the car was thrown all over my car. Just trashed because it could be. Nothing was even broken, but the irritation was still very real. That's how I feel about this spam. They just break into your personal space and leave their crap lying around. I can't wait till some sort of legislation is passed 10 years from now that will stop this sort of thing sort of.


you blog, i blog, everybody blogs

I followed the bunny trail and found this site with a very accurate listing of popular musicians (including Radiohead, Rivers Cuomo, Tv on the Radio, Belle and Sebastian and more) who blog. The list contains links to their respective blogs.

One of my favorite things I've found so far is a picture the Thom York posted of his blackboard that is "filling up with ideas". My next favorite album is sitting on a blackboard somewhere in England.
