On a much happier note, here are some things I'm looking forward to this week:
I'm wet with anticipation. Or maybe that's just the tears.
The worst part? It done be good, ya'll!!! Sure, all the songs sound EXACTLY the same (f'real, at one point I had to check cause I was all "didn't I already listen to this song?") but the melodies are actually really great and you have to admit that Jessica has a great voice. Plus, she really tones down her whole "oh yeah, ung, la la awhooooo hoo" pop thing that she does with her voice that drives me insane. The cd doesn't come out for two more weeks but if you're a fan of country...or even just good albums...I dunno...I might just say check it out...and now I'm hating myself for recommending a Jessica Simpson album AND a country album. WHO AM I ANYWAY?....uh oh....I feel a song coming on....
Am I my resume?
That is a picture of a person I don't know...what does he want from me? What should I try to be? So many faces all around and here I goooooo I need.....this job....dear God, I need...this show....a 5, 6, 7, 8!!!Okay. I have to seriously get to work. I just found out that the girl who's position I'm taking over hasn't done her reconciliation reports since FEBRUARY!! So that's a fun eight days of work for me....looking forward to a low-key weekend and perhaps some video gaming and Gossip Girling.
I bought an iPhone, ya'll!!! It wasn't cheap but it sure is pretty and SO COOL!! I'm happy to finally have a grown up phone after the free pieces of crap I would get every year. Did I mention it's so pretty?
Friday night the boys and I went to see a double feature: The House Bunny and Hamlet 2. The House Bunny was everything you'd think it would be. Funny, silly, and completely vapid.
Hamlet 2, on the other hand, was a bit of a disappointment. And by 'disappointment' I mean it completely blew. It had a lot of the right elements and some really great cast members (Catherine Keener, Amy Pohler, David Arquette. Actually, scratch that last one) but as a whole it did not work at all. It left us all with a funny taste in our mouths and not a good funny. More like a "okay, what kind of sushi was that" sort of funny. After the movie BFF, Beaux and I decided to go out for "one drink" which of course turned into "six beers and three Jaeger shots."
Saturday I woke up and went to the gym which ended up being a very short trip as the tv's were broken and my Ipod was dead. I'm sorry but it's nearly impossible to work out without some kind of noise around you. I was the only one at the gym too so it's even like I had anything pretty to look at. After the gym BFF and I grabbed some lunch, the previously mentioned iPhone, and went to hang out at Barnes and Nobles. We then made evening plans. What started out as a mini hang out with Bridge turned into a Wii night at Anthony's. Wii!!!!!!!
It was SO. MUCH. FUN. Kaka Kido,
Matt, Bridget, Andrea, Rachel, Page Six, Scott D and Ravey were all there for the majority of the night and JamieJamie Moore, Husband, and Scott Evans joined us later. It was awesome to have all my favorite people in one room--I'm a lucky boy.
Due to the fact that I drank heavily and really got in to the Wii punching game...my right arm, shoulder, and back are KILLING me today. As in it hurts to lift my arm. Between that and my finger, and I'm a walking bag of 'ouch' today.
After a late night and an even later sleeping in, I went over to Husband's house to play a little Mario Kart. We discovered his X-Men game around 4pm and next thing I know it's 11:30 pm and I'm heading home. 11:30!!!!! I haven't played video games that long in....I don't know how long! It has been since my cats chewed through the Playstation cords, that's for sure.
At any rate, we had a fantastic time and still had fun even after Scott D decided to just walk off the cliff. Twice. In a row. And the second time he was Rogue which is doubly lame because Rogue can fly and she wouldn't have died if she had walked off a cliff, she just would have flown back up and saved herself. We almost voted him off the team, but decided against it. He's too pretty to do that.
For some reason it took me a very long time to fall asleep last night. Like, 3:30 am hard time to fall asleep. It was not okay. But I'm here, and I have a fake smile on my face, and it's a half day on Friday and that makes everything okay!!
Homegirl knows where its at. Ya'll know I love me some Zuma. Or at least I did until Josh Moon accidentally deleted it from my computer.
Happy Birthday to Tori Amos.
There are some artists that come along and completely change the way you look at music and the world in general. Tori is one of those for me. A lot of people don't "get" her style of music but she's something of a fine wine--an acquired taste if you will.
Not sure what the weekend holds but if all goes as planned I'll be the owner of an IPhone come Monday!!
Even a fish might be scary
So why is it, every time I tell a person that I own two cats
They always say "Ew!! Gross! I hate cats! I can't believe you own cats! You're so disgusting! I"ll never be able to fall in love with you because you own cats! I'm allergic!" It feels like everyone says they're allergic to cats, yet every time they hang around cats, they're magically not anymore. And of course if someone says they own a dog, everyone around them says "oh wow! You have a dog?! How cool! How cute! You're so much more attractive right now!!"
Yeah, that dog's sooooooo cute!!!! Adorable, in fact. I've seen all kinds of ugly dogs but have I ever seen an ugly cat?
Mmm......nope. And look--I'm not hating on dogs. I love dogs. My family has had three of them and our current one is the shit. I even consider myself more of a dog person than a cat person. I'm simply hating on the reaction that I get every time I tell someone I have cats. Oh--I'm sorry that I saved two innocent creatures from certain death. Excuse me for doing what I can to better two adorable creatures' lives!
I got Carrie and Mr. Big back in the summer of 2006. I had just gone through a big breakup and thought that I needed something that would love me unconditionally. I knew that a dog would be too big of a responsibility for me to handle on my own so I started looking for cats. The minute I saw Carrie I knew she was the one for me...in a completely shallow "oh she's so pretty" sense. At first I wasn't too keen on the idea of having two kittens but once I heard their story I couldn't resist. According to Julie (the women who gave them to me), her sister was about to leave from her trailer park in Arizona to visit her. She noticed, underneath a trailer and in 116 degree heat, two newborn kittens. Apparently Mr. Big, at the time she found her, was two hours from death. This woman's sister drove to Utah with the kittens because she knew that Julie had cats and was an animal lover. Julie nursed them back to health (apparently they both could fit in tea cups when she first got them) but due to the fact that she already had four cats (four!! Eek!) she was unable to keep them. I mentioned to her that I only wanted one but Julie did not want to separate them and I understood as they had already been through a lot. Julie took care of all the spaying and declawing for me and gave me food, litter box, water, toys, treats, the works--it was a huge help as I don't think I realized just how much a financial burden pets can be. Two years later....here we are. So there you have it--the story of how Mr. Big and Carrie came to be. Yet ONE MORE story about my cats.
Oh, and for those of you who say that cats are gross because they "shit in the house and then you have to clean it up," guess what else shits in the house?
I'm not kidding ya'll--it was crazy!! I kept staring at him to see if I was drunk and seeing things but nope, T-Rex arms. Only in New York...and possibly Mesopotamia.
While staring at T-Rex man, we stopped at 23rd street and a group of young guys in uniform got on. Young guys in uniform!!!! Upon looking closer, I noticed they were from the New York Police Academy. Which got me thinking....
..how AMAZING were the Police Academy videos when you were a kid? I remember liking #5 the best. As excited as I was to see the Police Academy boys, something tells me I would have been more excited to see Sgt. Tackleberry, or Sgt. Hightower, or the black guy that makes voices with his mouth. Or the guy who played Punky Brewster's dad. Side note: Did you know there were seven Police Academy movies (oddly enough, Police Academy 6 was the 7th in the series...how does that work?) and in 1997 there was a Police Academy tv series?! Who knew people cared enough about that show after 1987!!
After cutting my pinkie toe on the corner of the Subway stairs (that was fun...) I was distracted while walking on 9th Avenue by an...interesting T-Shirt. It was in the style of the shirts you used to see in '96 and '97 where big thugs would have pictures of dead rap stars (ie. Tupac) spray painted on the shirt with some sort of message. Well last night was no exception. It was a big thug with the spray painted shirt but this shirt threw me off.....because it had Bernie Mac on it. I'm not saying that Bernie Mac wasn't a great comedian but is he really that...famous or important to be put on a t shirt? It was also amusing because it said a LOT in a tiny space. I have done my interpretation of it for you here:
That last one took me SO LONG to figure out. Lol. I was like, "what? The floating baby head? What's wrong about this?" Pictures are courtesy of failblog.org, a hilarious website. Happy Friday bitches!!!
