Updated, finally.

Since my last post was in August, here's the reason why. I've gone to the dark side.

Millions of Peaces...

...Peaches for me!

"The Presidents of the United States" was fun band. Reminds me of high school.

I haven't blogged in a while, but it's all good.

Bitchin.

Tired of moving.....

....and I haven't even done it yet. I'm so tired of packing and getting ready.

It makes me tired and my head hurt.

I just want to disappear for a while.

Almost everything is annoying me.

Blah.

Blast from the Past

The orange singing "Carmen" from "Sesame Street".



Super-duper!!!

I haven't seen this in years.

Or the man and clams. An old school ecology lesson.



How can you hate frogs?



Meet some animals....

Past lives

I'd like to think I've had a lot more adventures in my past lives than in this one.

I would have wanted to be a female ninja, who specialty is looking hot and using a wire to cut people heads off. (Hahah, just kidding but there is a x-box game of this persuasion).



Ok, either ninja, pirate, or samuraii. Those are my choices.



Here I am today, drunk at Foundation Lounge, right before IL came to get me.



I kinda look the same now, cause I'm bored at work.

Dreams

I haven't been "blogging" as appropriately much as should.

Huh?

Been having weird dreams, about death, lost friends, and being helpless.

Could be stress from finances and moving.

Can't wait to get it all done and go on vacation to Nantucket with IL.

Remember "Man at Arms" from "He-Man"? He was cool.

He-man's alter ego, Prince Adam, was definitely gay.

Jebus = Punk'd Hugh Jackman

By the way, YouTube is Jebus.

This clip is Jebus too.



I love Hugh Jackman.

EDPs, Buddy Holly glasses, scientific experiments concerning donuts, and taxidermy

Yesterday, my EDP (for those that don't know the terminology = exclusive dating partner) brought me as a "guest" to the Harvard Museum Natural History.

I love that place; it's full of dead animals. I'm completely fascinated by taxidermy.


This is not an example of what they do, but a squirrel in a canoe which is cool.





HMHM has some cool extinct animals, like dodos and golden toads. The golden toads of Coasta Rica where last seen in the 80's, much like my last bad perm. The dodo was killed off by man, like Stellar's Sea Cow and the New Zealand Moa. Belows are skeletons of the cow and moa. Moa was the largest flightless bird and the sea cow was similar to the manatee but much bigger and slower.



Anyways, maybe I should go into taxidermy, it may be my only chance to see some of the animals before they go extinct.

Some fucker in Harvard Yard made fun of my new glasses. I hope he falls off a cliff.
Though last night was an orange moon, I should have done some voodoo instead.

I've been purchasing donuts for my NEC stage crew and doing an experiment on sugar intake.

Very, very fascinating.

Bitches = sand fleas

Well, as a true American, I went to the Cape (for those that don't know the lingo = Cape Cod) for the July 4th long weekend.

To summarize:
Ate burgers at a sweet house near Brewster.
Went to watch a sunset. (*Believe it was Corporate Beach.*)
Too cloudy for sunset, but no sand fleas.
Instead of said sunset, had a photo shoot for a Christian rock band.
Went to a beach near Brewster.
Went kayaking with a mom.
Ate fried seafood ate beach previously mentioned for sunset.
Realized went to said sunset beach in college for marine invertebrates class at Woods Hole.
Got eaten up by sand fleas. (See below for more.)
Hung out (hanging out = sleeping) at a sweet house in Yarmouth.


I'll not fill you in with all the details.

Though Tuesday morning, as I was first waking up around 6:30am, I heard a crow outside. Aren't they bad omens? Do I believe in superstitions like that?

For those that have not had the privilege of sand fleas, here's one in a larval/pupal stage.



Turns out after their final stage of molting they become similar to gnats. And much more annoying.

They are VISCIOUS -- said sand fleas bit everyone all over their bodies. I keep finding more bites and they itch like the dickens.

I discoverd their scientific name is Bitches annoyinesous.

No, stop laughing, I'm serious.....

*sigh*

Didn't watch any fireworks except those I briefly saw while flipping through the tv channels. Yes, I'm lame but at least I didn't provide anyone with bad company.

Moving dogs

I might have to move, cause of a change in the rent cost. "I should be practicing" might be saving my ass.

This is my FAVORITE commerical ever. I want a dog. Poor kitty, so unloved.

Holy Oceans, Batman! I can't spell.

The correct spelling and descriptions of the movie I'd like to see is: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.

I should learn how to spell Caribbean, as I was a marine biologist.


Do I have to wear a speedo?!

Also been looking up tattoos.
I like this one, but no one else does.



I should just stick with my Japanese themes ideas. I was thinking of my family crests, Ando (my obaasan/sobo = Japanese grandmother), or Akita, my mom's maiden name. Each family in Japan has a crest from feudal/samuraii time. I bought a book on it and have narrowed my families down. I will have to ask my mom for the exact one.

Oh well.

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum.


I'm kinda jonesin' for the Pirates of the Carribean sequal.

That's all I have to say.

Lots of hotness.

A birthday picture with lots of hotness.



I also saw a great French movie. Is that ironic?
It was "District B13", a random sci-fi movie with lots of fun action.

Set in the ghettos of Paris in 2010, an undercover cop and ex-con try to infiltrate a gang in order to defuse a neutron bomb. Starring Cyril Raffaelli and David Belle.

David Belle, oooo-laa-laa!
He does this great style called Parkour.

Long weekend

This Memorial Day, 3-day weekend seemed much longer. Maybe because I actually got stuff done and had fun!

I saw "X-Men 3" at 12:01 am on Friday. I went to dinner with a group of friends, to a Portuguese place called Atasca. The food was fantastic!

I hung out with my friend Corrie at Mt. Auburn Cemetery. One of my favorite places in Cambridge and everything was green and beautiful and I found a few cool headstones, I hadn't seen.

While Corrie did bird-watching, I did tombstone/flower watching. She saw about 20 species of birds, but I thought this flaming azalea was friggin' sweet.


Then for Memorial Day, slept in, then took a short ride to Plum Island, Newburyport, MA. Took a short walk and rescued a few crabs. IL provided company all weekend and the trip to the beach. :)



OOOOhhh, and fried clams at Bob Lobster.
Yum!

Birthday Calculator - May 26, 1978

Your date of conception was on or about 2 September 1977 which was a Friday. (Wrong, I was premature).
You were born on a Friday
under the astrological sign Gemini.
Your Life path number is 11.
**************************************
Life path number 11: 2 (11/2, 20/2)
The Life Path 2 suggests that you entered this plane with a spiritual quality in your makeup allowing you to be one of the peacemakers in society. Your strengths come from an ability to listen and absorb. You are a fixer, a mediator, and a very diplomatic type of person using persuasive skills rather than forcefulness to make your way in the world. When you embrace and exhibit the strenghth of your spiritual side, you are intuitive, avant-garde, idealistic, and visionary. These extremes make you interesting with much to offer society. You have the potential to be a deep-thinker, and no doubt interested in understanding many of life's mysteries and more intriguing facets.

If you are living with the positive attributes of the number 2 Life Path, you are apt to have the most delicate ability to be balanced and fair. You clearly see the full spectrum of viewpoints in any argument or situation, and because of this, people may seek you out to be a mediator. In this role you are able to settle disputes with the most unbiased flair. There is sincere concern for others; you think the best of people, and want the best for them. You are honest and open in thought, word and deed. You excel in any form of group activity where your expertise in handling and blending people can be used effectively. Manners and tact mark your way with others, and you are not one to dominate a group or situation. You are the master of compromise and of maintaining harmony in your environment. As the ultimate team member, you never demand praise or recognition.

In many ways, you are a creature of habit and routine, and you like your path and pattern well worn and familiar. Your ability to analyze and render accurate judgments is a wonderful natural trait you bring to the business world. You strive for complete accuracy and even perfection in your work. Perhaps you are not a leader, but you are a visionary and a very talented idea person.

On the negative side of the 2, nervous energy is a trait often observed in the 2. Because of this, you may be seen as an extremist who is sometimes the zealot in expressing likes and dislikes. Nervous tension can bring the normally easygoing 2 into a state of emotional outrage, which to those around you, may seem so out of character. Indeed, the 2 can sometimes become oversensitive. In some instances, the strength of the 2 can also become its weakness. You may find it hard to decide what to do at times. Twos often struggle against indecisiveness. Making decisions and getting your life in gear, so to speak, may be a challenge. There is a tendency for the many 2s to harbor feelings of uneasiness, and dissatisfaction with accomplishments and personal progress in life. The biggest obstacle and difficulty you may face is that of passivity and a state of apathy and lethargy. The negative 2 can be very pessimistic. When this sets in to any degree, you are able to accomplishes very little. If living on the negative side of the 2, you may lack common sense, and you are quite often unable to distinguish between fantasy and reality.

Even the more positive individuals with the 2 Life Path will prefer a more amiable and less competitive environment, often shunning the business world. You can best serve society in endeavors utilizing your skills of counseling and guidance. Much of your idealism is people oriented and quite humanitarian in nature. You expect a great deal of yourself.

What your name means...Numerology.

You entered: Marie Minako von Kampen
There are 20 letters in your name.
Those 20 letters total to 94
There are 9 vowels and 11 consonants in your name.

Your number is: 4

The characteristics of #4 are: A foundation, order, service, struggle against limits, steady growth.

The expression or destiny for #4:
Order, service, and management are the cornerstones of the number 4 Expression. Your destiny is to express wonderful organization skills with your ever practical, down-to-earth approach. You are the kind of person who is always willing to work those long, hard hours to push a project through to completion. A patience with detail allows you to become expert in fields such as building, engineering, and all forms of craftsmanship. Your abilities to write and teach may lean toward the more technical and detailed. In the arts, music will likely be your choice. Artistic talents may also appear in such fields as horiculture and floral arrangement, as well. Many skilled physicians and especially surgeons have the 4 Expression.

The positive attitudes of the 4 Expression yield responsibility; you are one who no doubt, fulfills obligations, and is highly systematic and orderly. You are serious and sincere, honest and faithful. It is your role to help and you are required to do a good job at everything you undertake.

If there is too much 4 energies present in your makeup, you may express some of the negative attitudes of the number 4. The obligations that you face may tend to create frustration and feelings of limitation or restriction. You may sometimes find yourself nursing negative attitudes in this regard and these can keep you in a rather low mood. Avoid becoming too rigid, stubborn, dogmatic, and fixed in your opinions. You may have a tendency to develop and hold very strong likes and dislikes, and some of these may border on the classification of prejudice. The negative side of 4 often produces dominant and bossy individuals who use disciplinarian to an excess. These tendencies must be avoided. Finally, like nearly all with 4 Expression, you must keep your eye on the big picture and not get overly wrapped up in detail and routine.

Your Soul Urge number is: 7

A Soul Urge number of 7 means:
With a number 7 Soul Urge you are very fond of reading, and retreating to periods of being alone and away from the disruptions of the outer world. You like to dream and develop you idealistic understandings, to study and analyze, to gain knowledge and wisdom. You may be too laid back and withdrawn to really succeed in the business world, and you will be much more comfortable in circumstances that are tolerant of your reserve, your analytical approach, and your desire to use your mind rather than your physical being.

You are very timid around people that you don't know very well, so much so at times that casual conversation and social situations can be strained. You tend to repress your emotions to the extend that some people have a good bit of difficult understanding you. You tend to be very selective with friends and you don't easily adapt to new environments or to new people very quickly.

The negative traits of the 7 include becoming too much the introvert and isolated from others.

Your Inner Dream number is: 6

An Inner Dream number of 6 means:
You dream of guiding and fostering the perfect family in the perfect home. You crave the devotion from offspring and a loving spouse. You picture yourself in the center of a successful domestic unit.

Year of the Horse, 1978


As my birthday looms above me, I've been delving into my astrological something-or-others. My Chinese zodiac is the Year of the Horse, and in 1978 it was the Year of the Earth Horse. Does any of this sound like it fits me?

The Year of the Horse
The Horse gleefully gallops into his year, promising his reign to be one of reckless, carefree and romantic abandon. We all gain self-confidence and bravado, and will find ourselves doing the mad, adventurous things we always dreamed of doing, happily finding that the risks we take to be more rewarding than we imagined. The fast pace of the year is one where industry and economics will advance, and entrepreneurs will shine most brightly.

The Horse Personality
Black Beauty
Happy and Light hearted
Exudes sex Appeal
Vivacious
Energetic
Adventurous
Fun-loving
Independent and Non-conformist
Engaging and Charming
Honest and Straightforward
Hard-working
Considerate and Kind-hearted

Dark Horse
Indiscreet
Fiery Temper
Proud
Impulsive
Stubborn
Self-Centered
A Playboy / Playgirl
Restless, Bores Easily
Blunt


The Earth Horse: 1918, 1978
“The Cautious Horse”
It is a rare thing to find a horse who can settle down, but the Earth Horse will prove the punters wrong and even learn to cooperate with authority when necessary. This congenial chap is less decisive though, hedging his bets and considering all sides before acting. Still, he possesses the business acumen of the Horse, and can bring about a new lease of life to any sagging venture.


Prospects for the Horse in different years

Lucky years for Horse are the years of the Rabbit, the Horse, the Monkey and Dog.

Happy events, prosperity and achievements are in the spotlight, and the recognition of these will bring him much joy.

The years of the Dragon, the Goat, the Rooster, the Tiger and the Ox are fairly mixed – smooth in some ways, seemingly difficult in others. Nevertheless, obstacles presented during these times are never as bad as they seem, and will blow over quicker than the Horse predicts.

Trying times come in the years of the Rat, the Snake, and the Pig. Misfortunes and complications to his plans are likely, and any major decisions in business or love, should be left for now. These are years where the Horse must be cautious and persevering.

For your own interests go to Chinese Astrology.

Why I kinda like being half-asian.

Top 10 Reasons why being half-Japanese is good! (Ok, reasons why I think it's cool.)

10. Lost of cultural exploration and adventures.

9. Anime.

8. Japanese food.

7. There's enough of us to make a new race, but instead we just diversify (and conquer).

6. We have very diverse looks. Ok, so maybe not but I needed another reason.

5. Depending on the rest of your heritage, you can fill in "Other" on all types of applications, or "Asian", it's up to your mood. I personally like to alternate.

4. Interesting names: Marie Minako von Kampen, Nokuthula Ngwenyama, Apolo Anton Ohno, Andrew Kohji Taylor.

3. You tend to tend to instantly bond with other half-Japanese, ok, so not always.

2. You're usually hot. For example, Doug Robb of "Hoobastank" and Devon Aoki.


1. That eternal question, "Are you half-asian?"

Yaddah, yaddah...

This is randomly funny and put me in a good mood.



Thanks to Married to the Sea.

Need a blue sky holiday...having a bad day...

Where is the moment when needed the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue skies fade to grey
They tell me your passion's gone away
And I don't need no carryin' on

You stand in the *light just to hit a new low
You're faking a smile with the coffee to go
You tell me your life's been way off line
You're falling to pieces everytime
And I don't need no carryin' on

Cause you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Well you need a blue sky holiday
The point is they laugh at what you say
And I don't need no carryin' on

You had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day

(Oh.. Holiday..)

Sometimes the system goes on the blink
And the whole thing turns out wrong
You might not make it back and you know
That you could be well oh that strong
And I'm not wrong

(yeah...)

So where is the passion when you need it the most
Oh you and I
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

Cause you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
You've seen what you like
And how does it feel for one more time
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Starting my week off right....

So the schedule back stage looks like it has been tie-dyed cause I managed to spill my red gator-ade all over it...it is sooooooo a Monday.

I found out "I should be practicing" is a closet "Highlander" fan like myself, and lent him my dvds of all 6 seasons. I am not going to see him for at least 2 months.

If you don't know what "Highlander" is about there are 3 movies and a tv series. Basically, dudes (and a few chicks) with swords....and lightning...and maybe kilts...and Roger Daltry from "The Who"...and Miss Alabama who slept with Bill Clinton...and the lead singer of "Fine Young Cannibals" (what a great name!)...and the guy who played Krycek on "The X-Files"...and Joan Jett....yes, THE JOAN JETT!

Here's Conner and Duncan MaCleod, don't really know about the proper capitalization of the clan name. Whatever.



Let Geekiness abide...



This is Krycek...he was cute until he was a bag guy...


Anyways, other than that, I saw "MI:3" -- twice. Can't get enough of JRM. Then "Poisidon", and "Thank you for smoking". A entertaining movie weekend...but the big one was...seeing the "X-Men 3" preview 4 times!!!! Yes. I am happy.

We get better with age...

So I saw, "Lucky Number Slevin" last night. It was great! I recommend it for a fun movie. Bruce Willis rocked. He just keeps getting better, even if he is almost the same character everytime. Josh Hartnett and Lucy Liu were also good and nice on the eyes.

I was bored at work as I usually am, and actually investigated "Mission Impossible: 3". The chick from "Felicity" is in it with straight hair. A hottie named Maggie Q, half Polish/Irish and Vietnamese.



I've felt crappy and tired since this past weekend. I think I've got some kind of bug, it seems to be making its rounds. I'm just glad I don't have allergies on top of it.

Married to the Sea, I enjoy because I am a marine biologist, and it has absolutely nothing to do with it. :) Just funny, like this.



or this...



Ahhhhhhh...I feel this is a well-rounded blog.

The end.

Just keep getting younger and how to show that you're not interested.

Yeah, so my "hotness" seems to be getting more popular and younger.

22-24? Tuba player, leaves me a love note backstage and proposes marriage on my MySpace account.

23, Hot spy who speaks Russian.

21, Formerly religous pianist makes "eye contact" with me, but I don't notice.

18-19, Freshman or sophomore girl asks my friend, Who was that hot girl you came into the store with you?

Notice the trend of people getting younger?

Also, I spend a lot of time with "I should be practicing", and "no" not that kind of time. People get the wrong idea that we're together, even the X asks if we're dating.

I am interfering with his "hotness", so I need to wear a shirt that he suggested said "lesbian". I came up with a better one, "love men, but not Bush". It can be taken anyway you want. And by anyway you want, I mean.....

Weirdos from my childhood...

It is a given that everyone in my kindergarten class was a weirdo. I mean, come on, we were at a Baptist school.

Do you remember Slim-Good-Body? If you think about it now, it is kind a creepy. He ran around in a spandex the whole show.


How about Marty Stouffer? Dude was great, had his own show, took in lot so baby animals and stuff.


What about the Yip-yip monsters from Sesame Street?


Oh, vacation, I need you.

Rest in peace, Bob Ross.

Where's George dot com?

Where a $10 bill I had was from...

Kinda cool, huh?

Had a 21 year old make dreamy eyes at me, but the best part was that I wasn't even paying attention. But luckily my friend Ferol was and laughed her butt off.

Ahhh.....men.

"Beyond the Fuck-it..."

This refers to the point during whatever you're doing, that you realize you don't care anymore, so you just let loose. Thie gem comes from the big BZ. So right now I'm having a little "BTFI".

I'm at this point in my life.

I FINALLY get paid tomorrow, thank God for a steady job. This has been the longest 2 weeks of my like. The major downside of being a freelance is that that you're never really sure when/where the next paycheck is coming from.

"I should be practicing" have provide me with nurishment this past week, and I owe him some food starting Friday. Mmmmm, Indian food! Yum. Speaking of hungry, I could go for some cashews right now.

Still considering ideas for some tattoos. I'm pretty sure I figured out which crests are from my mom's and grandmom's family, but I have to ask my mom to verify. Which means she might figure out that I'm planning to get a tattoo. Oh well. I'm almost 30, she can deal with it, plus she can tell me, "I told you so", in a couple of years.

Is it wrong to hate people? I don't think people realize how strong that word is, but I feel I may be coming to hate someone. I don't like the feeling.

On a higher note, I really want to be a ridiculous Bond girl.

Check this out "I should be practicing", Anne Akiko Meyers another easy on the eyes halvsie.

"Goddamn you half-Japanese girls..."

WEEZER LYRICS

"El Scorcho"

Goddamn you half-Japanese girls
Do it to me every time
Oh, the redhead said you shred the cello
And I'm jello, baby
But you won't talk, won't look, won't think of me
I'm the epitome of public enemy
Why you wanna go and do me like that?
Come down on the street and dance with me

I'm a lot like you so please, hello, I'm here, I'm waiting
I think I'd be good for you and you'd be good for me

I asked you to go to the Green Day concert
You said you never heard of them (how cool is that)
How cool is that?
So I went to your room and read your diary:
Watching Grunge leg drop New-Jack through a presstable...
And then my heart stopped:
Listening to Cio-Cio San, fall in love all over again.

I'm a lot like you so please, hello, I'm here, I'm waiting
I think I'd be good for you and you'd be good for me

How stupid is it? I can't talk about it
I gotta sing about it and make a record of my heart
How stupid is it? Won't you gimme a minute
Just come up to me
And say hello to my heart
How stupid is it? For all I know you want me too
And maybe you just don't know what to do
Or maybe you're scared to say: 'I'm falling for you'

I wish I could get my head out of the sand
Cos I think we'd make a good team
And you would keep my fingernails clean
But that's just a stupid dream that I won't realize
Cos I can't even look in your eyes without shaking, and I ain't faking
I'll bring home the turkey if you bring home the bacon

I'm a lot like you so please, hello, I'm here, I'm waiting
I think I'd be good for you and you'd be good for me

I'm a lot like you
I'm a lot like you
I'm a lot like you
And I'm waiting
I think I'd be good for you and you'd be good for me

Wow.

"Spring ahead" royally screwed me.

I worked from 4pm to midnight yesterday, and was so wound up, that I could not sleep.
I ended up staying up until I had to get ready for work. (I was in at 7am.) It wasn't that bad since I lost an hour. Woo-hoo.

Nice though...saw the sunrise for the first time in a long time. It was so beautiful.
Maybe it's going to be a good day.

Flip-flops, Crossword Puzzles, and Sudoku


So, it is supposed to hit a high of around 72 degress today!!! I am soooooo excited. In honor, I did my toenails and broke out the dusty flip-flops. My feets won't fail me now!

I've been doing the crossword puzzle every morning with Means, then we let Erica do most of it. Means and I have our days of genious. I finished most of it on Wednesday. Means was brilliant on Thursday, and I've done almost all of the bottom half today.

Haven't quite figured out the Sudoku thing. I know how it works, but have yet to finish a puzzle with out scribbling over most of it. Maybe I'll try todays.

Cash flow is short until next payday, but at least I've got a date tonight, and you can believe he's paying. Actually he offered, so I'm flattered. But he did take my job.

Blah, blah, blah, and blah.

Indian Food and a Bad Morning

No, I don't have morning sickness or anything silly like that. (Whew.)
I got to work way early -- like 7:15am early. Spilled my ice coffee all over the office, before I was even able to take a sip. I then cut my knuckle in Brown Hall, and bled all over the set-up (poor, poor wind section). I even got my call connected to Hell...yes, that "Hell". Who new extension 1184 at my job, takes you right to Satan's voice mail. I sure as hell didn't.

Oh yeah, the point of my bad morning mentions is that I'm not in a bad mood at all. Go figure. I guess sucking coffee out of a carpet makes sure you still get caffine in your system. (Just kidding about the sucking thing, the coffee that is.)

Well, I'm almost finished knitting a scarf and armwarmers and Mumz's panta. What should I find for my next project.

I gave the guy shit who took my job at Haaaavaaad. I'm glad he got it but I was a little miffed. I am more miffed at the ex, who continues to put me in a bad mood.
But Haaavaaad is distracting me in a good way.

The Indian food reference is to that I really, really want Indian food. Or maybe I should learn how to make it.

Am I alone in the universe?

Do you believe in soul mates? I've spent a better part of my time in Boston, debating this issue.

My current view is "no". As I stare at the pipe cleaner animals of backstage Jordan Hall, I wonder, "As a half-Japanese, ridiculously long armed, freakishly tall gal, is there hope for me?"

Maybe.

Anyways, enough waxing poetic. I worked most of the weekend, and most of that was on Sunday.

I got up at 6am, left by 7am, and was at Sanders by 8:15am, my call time was 8:30am.
I worked 2 shows, and didn't leave until almost midnight. I only officially worked until 11pm, but got caught up talking until then.

I'm still tired so this is all you're going to get.

"Cute guys are an illusion created by the government to make sure women don't succeed."

This is my theory on cute guys in the world. It is all an illusion. Off I go be a superpowered nun. Flight and breathing under water is my style.

"V" for von Kampen

Yes, my lame reference is to the fact that I saw "V for Vendetta". I expected it to be crap, which means I actually enjoyed the movie. The only thing was I kept expecting "V" to take in his "Matrix" voice and ask for "Mr. Anderson". I'm kinda curious about the comic book now.

You scored as Mermaid. Mermaid: Mermaids are also known as Sirens. These creatures were beautiful women who tricked sailors into becoming completely entranced by their haunting voices and found death soon after. Not all stories of Mermaids are about gentle loving sea people. They are mystical, magical, and extremely dangerous. They have a way about them that brings anyone they are around to seem enchanted. They are very mysterious creatures and to meet one... Would mean certain Death. Let the song of the Sea fill your soul, for you are a Mermaid.

Forgive me Father for I have sinned, it has been 10 days since my last blog entry.

According to Blogger, my last entry was on March 10th, today is March 20th. So as long as my math serves me well, then that's 10 days.

To be honest I don't remember much over the past week and a half.

I did see "Match Point" which was f*#%@'n FANTASTIC! My new Irish crush (sounds like a soda) is Jonathan Rhys Meyers. You know how I love my crazies, and doesn't he look crazy in these pictures?





He'll be my crush until the next movie I see, then whatever.

I had a good work weekend. I got told by one group that they were very happy to have me there at their shows. The other was that I was described as "high caliber", while I was being referred to a job. So that was nice. (Too bad nice, doesn't mean more money always. I could use it. I guess I just have to work on Plan B to get into Symphony.) Plan B involves no morals whatsoever, so it's good that mine have been beaten out of me.

I went out for St. Patty's day with a few friends, it involved drinking, dancing, and checking out hot chicks and guys. I'm trained to look for both.

Did some random internet searching. My name in Hawaiian is "Malia". Kinda cool huh?

I'm doing research on getting a tattoo. I'm looking to get some on my wrists. One idea is to get the Japanese feudal/samurai crests of my gran's maiden name and my mom's maiden name. I've been doing a lot of online searches for information. I guess every family in Japan that was involved in feudal wars or samurai battle had a family crest. There are hundreds of them.

My other tataus (Oceanic term for them), I'd like to do is something with my pop's side. I'm having a harder time finding family crest information. So I'll just keep researching.

I found out that the job at Harvard went to a friend, so I'm not so upset about him getting it. I'll even take him out for a congratulatory drink. Cause I'm such a big person, I mean come on, I'm friends with my ex.

I've been making pipe cleaner creatures, so there is a high possibility that I've reverted back to kindergarten age. Which is fine, cause I had tons of guys all over me then. Oh well. We all have our times of hotness, mine was when I was too young to appreciate it.

Other randomness includes, PetCo. has a new commercial out with a doxie. He as a favorite toy name Bobo, that he takes everywhere. It gets disgusting and his owner throws it away and then takes him to PetCo. to get another one.

I've watched "Serenity" several times this week and want to get my hands on the newest Miyazaki movie.

I decided last night, that if I was a nun with superpowers, that I would be able to fly and breathe underwater. Also I plan on, in the future, discovering a semi-giant land squid and making its scientific name "Butt-face".

Hehehe, you love it.
