wrapping my brain around SXSW.

I just made an embarrassingly large amount of spaghetti and then I ate it all.
Also, my cat keeps on peeing on my roommates' towels and blankets. Why! Lol.
anddd, I am drinking champagne vodka right now and it is y-u-m-m-y.

There's been tons of talk for SXSW lately. Both of my places of employment are hosting events so I'm quite excited. :)

Here are some of the things I am super excited for:

American Apparel Flea Market:
3/19-3/21 11am - 8pm
American Youthworks Building, 4th & San Jacinto

Expect merchandise starting at $1, unique samples, and vintage pieces, yay! You just might
see me there ringing you up so be sure to say hi. Also, live DJ sets, music by Viva Radio, and ICE CREAM!!! sweet.

IFC Crossroads Party: The Decemberists and Gomez

Details on the flyer.
It's FREE and it's OPEN BAR, but you have to get your ticket at Waterloo.
I love both these bands so I really want to go, fo sho!

I still have no idea what Dead Prez song you're talking about. I want a youtube video, or else I think you're making up songs!
