Don't Let's Start

Whoops. Along with a big stack of books - I'm currently reading Jon Stewart & friends' America: The Book and Tenessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and loving both so far - I swiped a few DVDs from the library yesterday, and I made the mistake of turning on Gigantic (A Tale of Two Johns). As a movie, it's not the best I've ever seen, but as a huge They Might Be Giants fan, I don't care.

It's a documentary about the band They Might Be Giants, but not one of those documentaries that's informative or insightful or dramatic, or anything else of that nature. It's composed of fans praising the band and John Flansburgh and John Linnell being witty and charming, with footage of music videos and live performances frequently spliced into the mix. The whole thing is a big, fluffy, pleasant reminder that this is a great band. In addition to a fun movie, the DVD is also packed with so many bonus features. Like, too many. I haven't made it through everything yet. All I know is that I started watching a few performances by the band, and then it was suddenly the middle of the night and I hadn't had dinner.

I've also been having bike problems over the past few days (woohoo!), so I need to be ready to leave for work a little earlier than usual in the morning in case I have to walk. Basically, what I'm getting at is that my ongoing library chatter will be postponed for at least another day.

Nicole, my earlier prophesy has been fulfilled!

Nicole. You. Me. Is that it?

Does this post have enough contextual clues to make sense?
