This picture shows you everything you need to roast your own coffee: green coffee beans, a popcorn popper, wooden spoon, timer, notebook, and the newest dwell in case you have time to read. I pretty much just stared at the beans jumping around in the popper, though. Those beans cooling in the colander are the result of my first attempt. I am far from a coffee connoisseur, but I read somewhere about how you can buy green coffee really cheap and it keeps longer than roasted coffee, and it sounded fun. Haven't tasted it yet, but it smells like coffee, so I'm optimistic.

What's going on? This weekend, the little brother is marrying a real sweetheart of a babe. I was trying to find a poem to read during the ceremony but we couldn't find one that fit, so they asked me to play and sing Daniel Johnston's "True Love Will Find You in the End." Such a cute song for a wedding, I think. I bet all crying babies will stop and listen while I play.

Not much else is going on, the way it should be. I put up a hammock on the sleeping porch off of our bedroom and it's a super cool place to read. I'm also looking forward to the Saturday of the Pitchfork music festival.

Anyway, keep making the most of your summer.

At our friends' wedding last september they wanted me to read a poem as well. At first they were thinking Berman, although he's not really wedding material. They decided on Billy Collins' poem, "Love." It was oddly appropriate. Daniel Johnston is a good one too.

I looked through some Billy Collins books but that one didn't occur to me. I have to go look it up now.

My oldest brother is getting married next June... there's something about being the youngest sibling and watching everyone's lives changing, and suddenly realizing that you're going through that same process, albeit five years behind. Next year, when I'm sitting at graduation, it will feel so surreal because it's like, "Wait. I'm not supposed to be a graduate. Will and Mark are the graduates."

It's a really strange feeling.

Since when is Daniel Johnston so chic for weddings? A friend of mine got married two weekends ago--and their first dance was to "Go". I think it might have been the Sparklehorse/Flaming Lips cover--but STILL...

Oh well, "True Love..." is a better pick for a wedding. Good luck.
