I bake vegan sweets professionally and write on Vegansaurus for kicks! Sometimes I even recipe-test for VegNews magazine and cookbook authors. The most elegant person in sweatpants you know.
The Cure - Let’s Go To Bed
"My ego’s like my stomach
It keeps shitting what I feed it”
can I just say:
This is the first time I’ve been more than a decade older than at least half, if not more, of my coworkers
I was 23 when More Adventurous came out and I bought the CD in the record store because I really liked the Rilo Kiley songs I’d downloaded from like Napster or Limewire, with Jenny Lewis! FROM The Wizard! Mostly I listened to Bright Eyes and Elliott Smith and Ryan Adams, PJ Harvey, Nick Cave and Cat Power, but I did think Jenny had the voice of an angel, much like Kim Deal. Anyway, LOVED MORE ADVENTUROUS.
When I was 15 I stared at the ceilings, and listened to Tragic Kingdom on repeat because it was 1996. I watched Jenny Lewis in Foxfire when that played on HBO (but I was watching for Angelina Jolie). Saw Pleasantville in the theater.
I don’t feel old, but okay, sometimes when reading reviews about the new Jenny Lewis album, I do. It’s this “you were my hero when I was 15” thing, and I just get shocked at how much I was not a teenager when I heard this song. (This is not the version available on iTunes, a huge disappointment!)
And also I felt a little old when I yelled out “OH MY GOD YOU GUYS, I WAS IN COLLEGE WHEN THE FIRST HARRY POTTER MOVIE CAME OUT”, because a coworker mentioned they were in first grade.
