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.

"You are what you think about all day long."



I've been a royal ass this past week and a half. Mostly my fault, or basically all my fault. I've been stressed for various reasons, some of which I shouldn't be but am. Plus, March is my hump month. This time of year, I get cranky for sun, heat, flip-flops, men in shorts, and hoochies in minis. (Ok, kidding about the hoochies, or is it hooches?) Unfortunately, my cat (I've been completely ignoring him) and my coworkers have been taking the brunt of it.

I only hope they are better people than I, and do not hate me completely. I know at least one person does.

The title of this entry comes from the fortune cookie that I got at dinner on Monday night. I thought it was very fitting. Being stressed out and feeling like shit, made me a shitty person. I'm not sure where I get that from, but my Momma is very outspoken and my Pop can be cranky. A "super" combination of both, did I get. (Now, I'm turning into Yoda.)

On a lighter side, I've offered everyone on stage crew a Marie knit object. I've got requests for armwarmers, a sweater dress, and embroidered leather pants. Gee, can you guess who asked for those?

I've been in a better mood in general, after a pep talk from a friend late Monday night, lots of communication with my Rosatia, seeing Mikey, dinner and buzz with my dear lawyer friend, and actually "I Should Be Practicing" coming back into town. Can you believe that I just said I need people? I'm just not the tough cookie I used to be in highschool, when I hid in the ladies room, instead of eating lunch. Considering I am just a well-adjusted, lovable, fine individual, can you imagine me hiding in a stall for the entire year of 11th grade? High school was rough.

I also have plans next week to do some single's things and hang out with more friends. I think my bad mood wasn't help out all by being alone.

This place has fantastic farm raised organic yarn. Ok, so not such a good sentence, but can you imagine yarn grazing in a field? Maybe not, but they are Alchemy Yarns, a great name and a great website. I would recommend giving them some web traffic.

Oh, the fortune cookie, also gave me the Chinese for "April"; which isn't coming soon enough. My lucky numbers were: 7,12,35,46,18,6.

The pictures in this entry are an illustration for a video game I played in highschool. I know it is kind of silly, but it was always so beautiful to me. Someplace, that I wished exhisted. It is helping with my craving for green, sun, and magic.




Both pictures of a Tree of Mana, and red ibis birds.

Gizoogle and Whiny Boys

My newly translated blog:

http://sites.gizoogle.com/index2.php?url=http%3A%2F%2Fmarievonkampen.blogspot.com%2F

Thanks to "I Should Be Practicing" for making me feel better.

I love James Blunt, by the way. He's very original, and perfect break-up/crying music.

I purchased the "Happy Hooker" by the chick that did the Stich n' Bitch books. I haven't even started reading it, but it looks "hot".

Anyways, since it is March, I think I should finally get around to my New Year's resolutions. The ones I haven't started are: exercising regularly, eating healthier, being a superb person.

I only exercise, whilst moving pianos, and I don't even do that well. I had for breaky today, roasted-unsalted almonds and Special K with berries (no milk, I don't do white milk, only on occasion chocolate).

As far as being a superb person, I'm at the fantastic level right now, so I'm about 5000 points from being superb. I think I need to seel about 500 more boxes of World's Finest Chocolates, and I'll have enough points to be superb. I can then work on getting to the next level --

SuperFrigginChocoHotTastic!!!

Yesterday, Saturday, I actually had the day off. So I planned on calling my parents, doing laundry, and maybe sleep - alot.

I've been drinking a lot of Cola and alchohol recently, but I know it is probably not so good for me, but I'm having a great time.

My newest animal obsession is the kiwi bird of New Zealand. Which by the way must be the most fantastic place on earth. I used to think Oz was until theY had David Hasselhof as a national spokeman for Pepsi. *UGH*

I *May* Have Lost My Mind


These are pretty flowers in a crappy arrangement that I did.

I've been really tense and stressed-out this week. I'm not sure why. It comes and goes and my eye even twitches occasionally, which has never happened before.

I think I really need some time off from this whole music business. I've had trouble sleeping or sleeping too much. Headaches out the wahzoo. Just feeling "blah" all around.

That's all I have to say.

Oh, and that I cried at work this past week. A long story, but let's just say I was quite embarrased.

Grimey Tympanyes

From Heather's Universe, on Sunday, February 26, 2006, Timpanies....

In response to her tirade, I find that Grimesey has the BEST timpanies, by far.

They're sooo sexy and hot and they move like a dream. They are by far the MOST superior timpanies ever. They are so smooth.

That is all I have to say.
