old apartment packed: 30% done
old apartment cleaned: negatory
rental truck secured: check
moving buddies to help: semi-check
excited to move to new digs: quadruple check

FAIRY TALE

Once upon a time there has a young PRO SKATER named BORIS. He was RAPIDLY BREAKDANCING in the SLUSHY forest when he met SCARY VINNY, a run-away GANGSTER from the BRIGHT Queen CONSUELO.

BORIS could see that SCARY VINNY was hungry so he reached into his TIN CAN and give him his DIRTY GUACAMOLE. SCARY VINNY was thankful for BORIS's GUACAMOLE, so he told BORIS a very SUNNY story about Queen CONSUELO's daughter AMELIA. How her mother, the BRIGHT Queen CONSUELO, kept her locked away in a SKYSCRAPER protected by a gigantic TIGER, because AMELIA was so ECSTATIC.

BORIS DUNKED. He vowed to SCARY VINNY the GANGSTER that he would save the ECSTATIC AMELIA. He would RUN the TIGER, and take AMELIA far away from her eveil mother, the BRIGHT Queen CONSUELO, and SPIN her.

Then, all of the sudden, there was a LOUD HURRICANE and SCARY VINNY the GANGSTER began to laugh. With a puff of smoke he turned into the gigantic TIGER from his story. BRIGHT Queen CONSUELO SMELLED out from behind a BOX and struck BORIS dead. In the far off SKYSCRAPER you could hear a AHHHH OOOGA.

THE END.

on the upswing

i'm feeling much better. i guess all i needed was some sleep...who am i kidding...lots of sleep. i was in bed all day yesterday. i didn't really get up and do anything until after 8 p.m. that's how sick i felt. but after that, i felt really good. so i went to see some rock. might not have been the best idea to recuperate, but it was the donnas, and i was on the guest list. i've been dying to see this show for 2 months. the show was amazing. i almost bought a donnas belt buckle. but it was too pricey.

anyway, whoever was checking id's at the black cat door. i have a special message for you. kiss my ass you jackass. [pardon my language trusty readers] i'm fed up with people with the "i'm too cool for you" and "i can be a jerk b/c i work the doors" attitudes you run into. grow up. i just want you to check my id, take my ticket, and let me rock like no one's ever rocked before. just another reason NOT to go back to the black cat. and i'm starting to lose places to see shows. damn.

sunday i'm going to see harry potter & the chamber of secrets. it will be as awesome as catching a snitch and winning a quidditch match. you betta recognize!

did anyone know about the other gyllenhaal? maggie gyllenhaal she's cute.

how fitting

i'm sick. been sick for 2 days. but at least i found my inner badass.

Slash
Find Your Inner Bad-Ass...

Hey there, Danger Boy! You're Slash! Thrash it, bash it, and sell it to the butcher in the store... You are the all-american bad boy, and as long as the band stays together, the world will know it soon enough...

sweet sunday

i'm not sure if i've mentioned this before, but i love the new vegan eatery in d.c.: sticky fingers bakery

i've eaten sweets all day. at 5 p.m. i hit a sugar wall and had to take a 2 hr nap.

also, here are 2 reasons why corey is the top dawg amongst labs:

reason 1: he loves people
reason 2: he does well with other dogs

[i want a dog...damnit]

like ali, "so pretty"

tonight i went with corey to see sigur ros at the lincoln theatre. i had never been there before. it's actually a pretty nice place. for some reason they even allowed us to bring sodas to our seats. i've never been to a non-movie theatre that did this. oh well. moving on...

the show was amazing. here is a run-down:

opener: sucked beyond belief. he was like an icelandic billy bragg minus the talent. i don't have to much respect for artists who play songs that i think i could even play. the thing is, he was playing such simple stuff and he still messed up. no stage presence, no nothing.

the real deal: sigur ros has never failed to blow me away. seeing them live is completely different than listening to their albums. sometimes their lp's can be so mellow, that you can be lulled to sleep. live, they take all of the mellow stuff, crank the volume 10 notches, and play some loud ass music. and it's a natural high. it's so intense. you are on the edge of your seat. the lead singer jon's voice is so pretty over top of it. you get your face rocked off but in the nicest possible way.

if you ever get a chance, GO SEE THEM. you won't be disappointed.
