Mini Blogs

so there has been lots of stuff that i wanted to blog but haven't so i'm going to give you a short blizzard of all the things i can think of

-Dan Ruined my life
i spent all of my days off watching House that dan sent me and i will probably spend alot of any future days off doing the same. if any one asks why i don't have a carrer dan is who i will blame
(don't worry i still love you, PS if you could send Season 2 of Grey's Anatomy my roommates will love you forever and i will send you books of your desiring)

-Trivial Pursuit on the roof

This is me loosing (Becky would be so disapointed) also if anyone would like to get us a less obsolete version of Trivial Pursuit that would be amazing also perhaps the game Apples to Apples

-I Leave for London in less then a month
and many of you will be recieving e-mails/myspace mesages/IM/Phone calls requesting updated addresses for postcards and i will be asking you to come up with a mission for me to accomplish while i am in either london or edignfabourioefg (prefrably ones that require me to talk to hot british boys, make an ass of my self, and ones that i can upload photo evidence of while still in the UK) but more on this in up coming missives

-Reason's why it will be very dificult to become a Vegitarian
1-Sushi (espicaly eating sushi with amy)
3-Tacos (bad greesy ones)
4-Turky/Rost Beef sammiches
5-I don't know how to cook enugh Vegitibles/ or like to eat enugh Vegitibles

-Resons that i will NEVER be able to be a Vegan
1-Omletts (see sushi)
2-Cheese ( mack n', Grilled, etc.)
3-Ice Creme
4-Alfredo sauce
5-It just takes too much damn effort to figure out what has "animal by-products" in it

ok thats it for now i will come up with more stuff later. right now i need to sleep and read more of my book club book Oh The Glory of it All

London Calling

yea i titled this blog that, you will see why that is about as tacky as it gets in aproxamatly 4.5 seconds.

so, today, i just booked a flight to london.

just in case you missed that i will write it again.

so, today, i just booked a flight to london.

yep thats right i'm going to visit the lovley island that gave bloody and contemptious birth to this nation. but more importantly i am going to see amy for the first time in months. and i'm going to see her perform her show. (Between) and just generaly have a realy exciting life on my vacation from bookstore hell.

so if anyone has any sugestions for amazing stuff to do in london or edingrburhgroioahg. (edinburgh) you should send those along and if anyone will be in either of those locations or other places in the nearby area during the span of time between 14 August and 25 August we should meet up.

so after that great news next blog will be the much belated "The Greenie: or There and Back Again" detailing the not entirly unintresting trip home i just had.

(Especialy You Amy)

I Got Drunk and Became a Vegitarian and and Optimist.

so, mike G was bartending at this "intresting" Bar on third and 13th so i decide to check it out and run in to a bunch of Hof kids. Meridith and Britwane(SP?) and watched a wierd combination of people including a bunch of frat nerds discussing with his realy boy-ish looking girlfriend where to go on vacation. there were also a bunch of japanese ladies who had just come from a birthday party and one of htem instantly passed out on the couch next to ours.
not long after Mikey got released from the bar me Mer and Brit decide to head out. i say good bye to mike and Taylor, the queen of Hof's indi scene who i used to dislike and now that i have actualy had the opertunity to talk with her i actualy enjoy. so i decided to go up to Union square and do some food shopping before i head home. Trader Joe's is still open so i start wandering around. food shopping drunk is a little fun, i noticed i picked out things a little randomly but i also for some reason decided while at TJ's to become a vegitiarian. and so none of the purchaces i made tonight involved the death of an animal. i still have a bunch of cans of tuna here and some frozen fish but i think i might make an effort to become a veg. its and idea i agree with and support and just haven't had the motivation to try to realy do. i don't know how long i will last, i will definitly miss alot of things but i'm going to try.
and the notriously chatty TJ's cahiers was an intresting expeariance as i was not realy in a condition to pay attention. but i was definitly in a good mood about the whole experiance and was very enthused whe he suggested a rock show that was occuring this weekend. of course i can't remember what the name of the club he said was. but just the gesture made me quite uplifted about people in general. a feeling that i'm sure will disapate tomorow when i have to talk to them again.
got home and drank some more on the roof. then some cloves and other leafy substances and now i'm happy and giggly and sleepy.

and i have work tomrow at 845

PS me and the roomies (+ Cassie) all brushing our teeth together

There is a Posability

Look at the Time

so as im sure you notice by the little time indicator it is quite early (if my blog is not set up to post the time of entries it is curently 4:19AM)

i worked till midnight and i have to be at work at 8:45 and when i got home from work i wanted to finish reading the book i had borrowed from work (mostly because it was a teen fiction novel and i didn't wan't it to take me more then a day to read it) so i decided to just not sleep at all. this is probably not a good idea but whatever.

also none of my roomates are home, again. and i havent seen jack in like a week. i think before i went to heaton's wedding.
i am also sunburnt wich is more anoying then i thought it would be. and will probably only result in more freckles and not the pale reducing effects i was aiming for.

i'm schedualing my Vacation time. i have two weeks, which just seems strange but i could definitly use it. so if anyone has any intresting ideas on where i should go(keep in mind i am very close to broke) feel free to sugest them. also if anyone would like to come visit me you should let me know. i'm aming for the two weeks begining on August 10 (as that is when Erin returns to Beacon before she moves to Iowa) if any one would like to schedaul some greenie vacation time let me know soon. i have to take my vaca before august 31st. so you realy don't have many options.

My Rage, at Least it Keeps Me Thin

today when i got home from work i was starving. and it wasn't because i ate two slices of pizza on my break, or that i ate just before leaving for work, or that i actualy had a real breakfast this morning, a home made omlet (which reminded me of you amy)
and it wasn't because i spent most of my day, much like any other day, walking around in increasingly pointless cirlcles (though that probably did have something to do with it)

i was starving because of the amout of energy my body burns up in varying levels of rage.

Most days it takes about 10-25 seconds after ariving at work before i start to get annoyed and by the time i'm down stairs where i work i'm usaly already at the point where my coworkers notice my fury. it's usualy due to the people who love to make sudden stops in the middle of high traffic areas right at the front of the store when i am trying to punch in or get to the escalator. though there are the times when it is people who suddenly make a compleat 180 and walk face first into me and then look at me like i just smacked them in the face.

so a list of the things that inraged me today (in no particular order)

-My usless coworker. he wasn't even there today but just the fact that i had to work with him for the last two nights in a row and his Uslessness tends to seep into days he isn't even there.

-Kids with lists of summer reading who obvioulsy don't read normaly. evidenced by "which of these books is the shortest?" or "Do you have 1978 by some guy named Orwin"

-The kids who send there non-english speaking parents to get their books for them, only providing a small scrap of paper with an indecifrable collection of words that may (but usaly don't) add up to a real book and author and combination. now i have no problem with the non-english speaking parents, but if you know that your parents don't speak well wouldn't it make more sence for you to come in and get your books as you both know what you want (assumably) and can comunicate that much more effectivly. if you are going to send parents who don't have that strong of a communication skill in english then give them either the orriginal school list or a god damn ISBN number

-Teenagers who take the sex book to back corners and giggle about them. first of all why do this in groups of like five? second of all if you haven't heard about the internet and how to get porn from it you are an idiot and probably shouldn't procreat.

-Basicly teenagers in general. the ones who don't anoy me are usaly the ones that i find attractive and constantly have to remind my self that they are too young

-The hot guy who refused to flirt back with me after i descoverd that he likes my favoret book and wasn't 16

-The mothers of kids with lists. who insist on taking everybook on their childs list and then deciding (usaly for the child who is trying not to think about how much of an emotional scar this event will have on them in the future) which ones their child will read. and the ones who feel the need to buy every review book for what ever test their child is takeing even if that child isn't takeing that test untill the end of the next school year.

-Medical books and all persons, publishers, customres, authors associated with them. nothing is more anoying then a doctor who assumes he knows more then you trying to tell you how to find his book for him when all he has are the words "Medical" and "Diagnosis" for a title and no author or publisher. you may be able to do a bovine heart valve graft but leave the book finding up to me jackass.


ok i'm going to stop there because i need to go to bed and i think i have burnt out most of my rage for the day
tomorow i make a triuphant return to the island for the wedding of Heaton and Elise
