nail chips 2


my nails cannot survive my guitar, yet i find myself falling ever-deep in love with nail polish. next i think i'd like to try a nice, sunny yellow! i need to start learning how to play with a pick...

right now i'm at the swallow cafe in brooklyn (formerly archive cafe.) it's practically empty. i'm sure the saner people of our fair borough are crammed shoulder-to-shoulder in a grocery store, preparing for the big hurricane ...they're certainly not on a computer in a coffee shop, enjoying their garlic cream cheese bagel.

i went to food bazaar earlier in the day... yeah. that wasn't happening. there weren't even any free baskets or carts. i'm hoping it clears out a little later, so we can stock up on canned goods galore.


actually, i'm thinking this is gonna be a good time for me to catch up on my reading AND my guitar playing. hope everyone out there is staying safe if you're in the path of irene. otherwise, enjoy your weekend!



  1. I'm looking forward to catching up on my reading, too! Hope you can procure some canned foods and whatnot.... we're on a quest for D batteries for our flashlights - all the stores around here sold out! And gosh, bottled water went fast. Stay safe!


  2. I think yellow is a cool option for nail varnish ;)!

    And keep yourself safe, please! ;)

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Heey! I love the new header! ;) Hope you're having a fun weekend!

  4. thank you! i've been laboring over it all day, thinking it would be a good distraction from irene... but no irene...

  5. Haha, that's why I started playing guitar with a pick! Because I would break my nails too often!

  6. i've been trying to do the pick thing for years, and the habit just won't take root. plus i feel like an acoustic being played with a pick can sound annoying and the act itself cumbersome. maybe it'll be easier with an electric though...


thank you for taking the time to leave a comment :) i appreciate your thoughts.
