*02.14.02 consider the anableps

pleasant discoveries: flipping around in the car today yielded the magnetic fields' "book of love". on the radio, hey hey! then john cale covering "heartbreak hotel" and nico doing "my funny valentine". it was KUSF, i think. only comes in for about five blocks, but geez. i must park there sometime.

and crabs! thai devil crabs! who can live in a ten gallon tank and don't need live food and won't fear the cats! they even had an aggressive - keep away from small children sticker on their tank at the pet store: now they live here. one has been building a mound of river pebbles all afternoon while the other waves him on. i have identified the sound as a handful of mardi gras beads dragged across bones. perfect for valentine's day.
