it's awesome how certain smells and songs can really jigger your memory. there's a word for this, but i dont' feel like looking it up.

i'm listening to 'all things ordinary' here at work (it's by the anniversary) and it reminds me of new jersey, of driving from ventnor to ridgewood on the turnpike (160 miles of it, basically) and of casinos and fall and family. and that makes me think of fires in fireplaces and warmth and good times in a not-so-good environment.

'always your way' by my vitriol will always make me think of europe in the summer...of well engineered and clean german trains and ontarihos. and how i hate the word 'giver' used stupidly.

'surrounded' by chantel kreviazuk makes me think of college. of my senior year of rowan, trying to do well, and working out constantly and of bernadette and having no spare time and coming home at 10:30 at night and going straight to bed to wake up at 7 the next day and do it again.

'molly' by sponge makes me think of stage diving and one of the best concerts of my life. it makes me think of chicago and lost friends and my dad and lake michigan in the summer and driving jaguars and limos and utility vans and corvettes and learning stick shift and deciding to go to a concert the day of, and cajoling 3 people into going with me (who loved it, btw.)

in a lesser sense, 'in your eyes' makes me think of elaan, 'counting blue cars' makes me think of rutgers, and anything by fiona apple makes me think of kelly.

i love memory. i wish mine still worked well.
