pimpin' you thoughts [summer 2003]
jueves, enero 31, 2002
so i wake up this morning around 10ish to turn on the channel 4 news. first story that i see is that limp bizkit is holding a tryout, at rockville's guitar center, for their vacant lead guitar position. the next news segment was the traffic report. here is a summary:
traffic guy: well for all those going to limp bizkit today, it's my way or the highway.
doreen gentzler: isn't that a limp bizkit song?
traffic guy: not sure, that's what they tell me.
doreen gentzler: i've got a list of songs here, you are so hip.
what is happening to the news? it was completely gross. thoroughly disgusted, i trudged to fresh fields to get some food. what was playing there? mariah carey's "someday". my ears were piercing from her attempts at the high notes.hello, we have a disgruntled lex in aisle six. i checked out in a hurry. grr.
happy belated blog day to scott. here's to another 6.

a case of the sniffles
i'm feeling better during the day. but when i wake up i have a nagging cough, stuffy nose, and a headache. definitely going to the doctor tomorrow to check it out.
congrats to scott and kim for the new addition to their family: a feline named regan.
there is a nice daily jack pic on corey's blog. check it out. dog + snow = fun for all involved.
i'd like to also note that there are several sickos coming to my website....i found out that people have gotten to my site by searching "olsen twins pornography". eww, eww, eww.
also, my site was the 39th search for veggie sex thumbs. one question: what the hell is a veggie sex thumb?
lastly, the news: people are actually doing reasearch on coked-up monkeys

he's gonna tear the roof of this motha
looks like litclique has his own blog. bout time. coolio.
been away, wasting away
haven't been blogging much recently b/c
1) i have flu-like symptoms which have kept me bedridden
2) work shmerk
4) no internet at home (egad!) yes. it's true. the phone lines in my apartment are messed up and verizon said it would cost me $90 to get it fixed. a-holes.
once i shake off this ill feelin', i'll have free time to play. i'm dropping my web design class b/c it completely sucks. the teacher talked really slow, so i finished the project she wanted us to do in the first 30 minutes of class. the next 2 hours were spent perfecting my a-game in free cell, solitaire, and hearts.
i'd like to point out right now that award shows are bogus. it's just for the higher ups. it just seems like certain people (like tom hanks) just has to show up to the golden globes and he'd get a trophy. i mean, if he had starred in joe dirt he still would have gotten best actor or something like that. it's bogus. dick clark is bogus. don't get me started. don't even get me started.

"i hit the deck"
my weekend was pretty mellow. seems to be the trend these days. i hung out with my sister, bro-in-law, and niece last night. my 2 yr old niece is pretty funny. when i ask her "hey jasmine, do you want juice or water?" she says "oooooo-kaaaay". uhm, yeah, that wasn't a yes or no question. kids are the cutest.
can't say i love mondays too much. not that it's my usual start of the work week, since i work every weekend, but it's still no fun. maybe it's just that it feels like what the bangles talked about in their song "manic monday"...although sunday isn't my fun-day either. hmm. okay, i know why i don't like mondays. b/c i have to trek out 30 min. to an office just to do busy work. and lately i don't really like it. plus i have to go through the idle, i-don't-really-care chatter, like "hey what did you do this weekend?" i shouldn't complain. no one has come up to me yet saying "hey, seems like someone's got a case of the mondays"
i'm in pretty good spirits though. classes start tomorrow. woo-hoo. i'm ready to learn.
i checked out cnnsi today and this was one of the stories from yesterday: bush faints at white house during ravens victory. here is today's follow-up story [via: mlyttle]
i get to play whatever cd's i want and it's fun to find new and interesting ones. here are a few:
langley music school project, innocence & despair. bizarre recordings of jr. high schoolers singing 70's hits. as my co-worker said, "it will make you laugh and cry"
manu chao, proxima estacion: esperanza. this guy sings in french and spanish. makes you feel like going to the caribbean, taking it easy on the beach while drinking margaritas.
nick lowe, the convincer. old swooner with very mellow voice. soothing.
i am sam soundtrack. beatles covers by modern day artists. starts out good, ends rough rough rough.
the royal tenenbaums soundtrack. typical m. mothersbaugh instrumentals intertwined with mellow hits (nico, nick drake, elliott smith) and rockers (the clash, ramones).

29 days and forgetting
i keep forgetting that the 2002 olympics: salt lake city will kick off feb. 8th. maybe it's because they were more exciting when i was younger.

i thought i was done for the day
checked out the morning news which brought me to these interesting stories:
Taken on the Road: American Mile Markers
Matt Frondorf is going to drive from the Statue of Liberty to the Golden Gate Bridge and at each mile, he is going to take a picture. For anyone counting that is 3304 pics.
did you know?
In good society, large diamonds are called "fuck-you stones."
lastly, mullethead dolls
rodeo's doughnuts, moppy's deeznuts
this weekend was pretty eventful for me. i usually just work and sleep.
on saturday, i went with corey, kristy, gretchen, and rodeorob to the mcmoppersons house to eat some really good food (salad, fennel/leek soup, and a pasta salad with pine nuts). mmm. me want more. kristy brought a yummy dessert too: brownies topped with melted peppermint patties on top. my tummy was happy. we all lost some brain cells and laughed til our stomachs hurt. post meal, we played a rousing (and for my team) winning game of cranium. then we watched eyeball eddie. pretty damn good short film. [read laze's review]
the best part of the night. as my christmas gifts i received the aforementioned eyeball eddie on dvd from ryan, and the piece de resistance--a black hat that says luscious (in gold writing) from huyen.
i couldn't stop smiling the whole way home.
happy birthday john!
last night i went over to my friend beta & jared's apt. to hang out with john, thornco, and m.diz. we ate some birthday cake. talked about roadkill and vomit stories. you know. usual stuff.
tonight we are going to ben's chili bowl to celebrate jg's birthday.
