well, she said she’s got a big test to study for or something

dude, i thought it was for your daughter, not your girlfriend...but hey- we all cant be perfect!  nellyfurtado (10k image)So i was supposed to go out with Morgan (w/ boy) and Becca and Emily tonight. Morgan had asked for us all to go out for dinner cos we hadn’t seen each other in a long while. First Emily calls a few hours ago saying she cant make dinner but will come for dessert. Fine. It sucks, but she’s still coming. Then I just got an IM from Becca saying Morgan cant make it cos she has a test to study for tomorrow or something. Wonderful. It’s times like these that make me realize why i dont have many friends. They are always there to dissapoint you. It would have been nice to see Becca cos I havent seen her in ages. Like since she went to Peru to see Paula. And her father just had a bone marrow transplant and I want to hear how he is doing. But Becca had already made some other plans with a friend. Whatever. I guess it’s more time for me to work on my own shit. So now I am just sitting here working on shit. Yeah, I am a little peeved. Perhaps I am a bit oversensative right now, cos I am working too hard at work these days with little fun in my life (outside of the fun stuff with Emily). I guess I just expect way too much out of people. As I should. Eh. And perhaps I just miss Becca too. But I just got off the phone with Emily. I am just gonna wait for her to get here and they’ll we’ll catch dinner. I asked Buddy to come too, cos we’ve not hung out in a while (he said today), but he has a hot date. Yes!!

my friend my friend he’s got a knife

mat: hey, what’s the deal with nelly furtado tickets?
Mike: sold out
Mike: we dont have anything to do with them
mat: guestlisting for any of us or totally not our gig?
Mike: hot995 probably can do something
Mike: totally not our gig
mat: thanks!
Mike: yup!

Tomorrow Mike is picking me and Emily up at 7.30am to hit the metro to get to Union Station at 8.30am for our train ride to the Ski Resort. Emily and myself so deserve this mini vacation. I just cant wait to take pictures on the long 7-hour train ride and catch up with some reading. Yes! And since my boss didnt file the paperwork for my day off, I am actually getting paid again to go! Ha! Ok, so maybe I’ll hold off looking for another job for a bit.

KAREN! I LOOOVVVE YOU!

smug chugga Things I’ve learned:

1. walk fast and carry a Big stick. Or, a Big stack of papers. This is an impressive thing to do and either gives you the appearance of a harried secretary running an urgent errand for a Big cheese.
2. never settle for anything less than what you would have settled for yesterday.
3. Romanian: Good day/Good morning/hello, etc. = Buna Demenata (BOO-na dee-men-YAT-sa)
4. I still like Bass loafers
5. …and Bass beer

6. Milan is day
Mainly said
Inlaid yams
Dismal any i
Island may i?

I am in the midst of remembering how fun anagrams are.

7. Your first name has made you a friendly, approachable, and generous person. Generally you are good-natured, though at times you can be blunt and sarcastic. As you are naturally talkative, you find it easy to meet and make friends with many people. This name inclines you to be sympathetic and generous to those in difficult or unfortunate circumstances. You can be firm, positive, and independent in your own ideas and in reaching your own decisions, yet when it comes to taking action or following things through to completion, you often need encouragement. You respond quickly to kind words or any appreciation shown you. There are artistic, creative abilities in this name that you could express through music or singing, or, in a practical way, through sewing or interior decorating. You enjoy freedom from monotony and are stimulated by unexpected opportunities for meeting people, entertaining, or pursuing activities of a carefree nature. In your work, you find it difficult to be neat and orderly. You rarely plan things ahead of time, or follow a routine. Emotion and feeling, the desire to be carefree, friendly, and happy, are the driving forces in your being, rather than shrewdness, ambition, and material success. You could experience headaches, or problems with your teeth, ears, eyes, or sinuses. Health weaknesses relative to the functioning of the liver could appear.

Also:

8. The mostly lovely internet is pissing me off righteously today, and being intensely unlovely
9. tonight I am going home, doing laundry, cleaning. I hope that my book on figure drawing from half.com is waiting for me. I still have yet to here from Midway Rentals regarding a rental car for June. Fuck is my favorite word today. I love Jason Kottke’s online font Silkscreen.
10. I think I shall bake muffins tonight.
11. My brother was crying.
12. I wish I had a secret awaiting me
13. Is Malcolm in the Middle on tonight?
14. Sig bought the book ‘The Culture Vulture,’ which is such an excllenet book, everyone should own it.
15. CHRISTOPHER KREIG WILL YOU GO TO PROM WITH ME????? TLF. TLA. LYLABBM’ (love you like a brother but MORE!)
16. Nahtzee! Like Yahtzee!
17. I want my nickname to be Colosuss.
18. What’s the downlow on Nashville Pussy? Anyone still into it?
19. QUEENSRYCHE.

There was a group of guys that went to my alma mater that lived in a house who’s mascot was a goat. Anyways, I stole this picture off of their site. Yes, they still have a website for their college group house even though they are pushing 30. Dude, ET is getting SNOOKERED!

No Amigos, my friend. No Amigos.

In other worlds, I hope all my little O-Mers are doing well. ‘Tis been a long time since any sort of get-up-together. Due? Yes.
