So last night Liz and I were watching the NJ v PHI and OTT v PIT games.
We had a couple of epiphanies:

  1. Jesse Winchester (of the Ottawa Senators) must be one of the Winchester brothers from Supernatural -- in disguise, on a hunt, because --

  2. Matt Cullen (clearly part of Twilight's Cullen vampire clan) is ALSO on the Ottawa Senators.


Someone should write this crack fic. Just sayin'.

That is all.

ETA: I just realized, when Liz asked if Cullen had those striking blue eyes (which I don't know), but that Cullen clearly became a hockey player because it's always played at indoor arenas so he'll never have to worry about sparkling in the sun! LOLZ! (This is going too far now, really.)

Someone send me some YouTube videos or something interesting PLEEEEEAAAASE!

I'm feeling super restless at work and although I'm still working, all I want to do is write something (but can't concentrate enough to write fic and don't have anything enough to say for a journal entry) or look at videos on youtube.

Also, I bought Slings & Arrows online and I'm pretty sure it's the package that USPS attempted to deliver on Tuesday. But of course the post office closes way earlier than I can actually get there, so I have to wait til Saturday to try to go pick it up. ARGH.

ETA1: This is kind of awesome!
Turning Central Park into an Interactive Board Game!
I'm totally going to this. April 30th & May 1st, 10a-6p.

ETA2: Have been watching Trainspotting-related vids on YouTube. Including deleted scenes, which, SOMEHOW, I'd never seen before! <3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOIZsiIPUOM

Girls together: "What are you two talking about?!"
Guys together: "Nothing. Fitba. (LOL, that's football for those of you who don't speak Scots accents.) What are you talking about?"
Girls together: "Shopping."

So the new roomie moved in last night. Mark came in from work with the rest of his stuff around midnight. Judy was already sleeping, so we finished up with signing the sublease contract and rent things and then we kinda sat around chatting for like an hour and a half. So at least it's not weird superawkward silence or anything. He seems to be a cool guy, he does sound mixing/recording stuff so I'm kind of hoping I'll get to hear some cool new music I don't yet know about, maybe get some exposure to some interesting local bands (even though he's kinda into, you know, indie rock).

He's not a huge fan of hockey, but he grew up in Syracuse and knows enough about the Sabres to miss Drury! <3 So until further notice, he's cool in my book.

It helps that he's cute, too. =D

In other news, I am extremely pleased that it's Friday. I'm beginning to be torn over the fact that it's so pretty and warm outside and I want to go out... but there's a Rangers game tonight. I think I will compromise by getting out at Roosevelt and walking home from there. Which, really isn't even a mile away, so I feel like it's an insignificant distance, but it will satisfy some of the urge to be outside.

I'm often quite grateful that my place gets a lot of nice light. One of the many things I like about it! So I shall be opening windows and curtains... and I think I should probably change the curtains in my room to the sheer summery ones very soon!

I was talking with Shoobs and another coworker today and Shoobs said something about a place that has good margaritas and an outdoor park area -- which reminded me of last summer at Coney Island and drinking yummy beers at the outside bar on the sand. IT WAS SO NICE. WHO WANTS TO GO TO CONEY ISLAND THIS WEEKEND? I could be persuaded to forgo the NYR game on Saturday night in order to do this!



And, as a side note, I'm almost determined to like Drive-By Truckers and Lucero because. FIC. HOT. YES. (omg thank you [livejournal.com profile] sionnain.) \o/

I'm halfway there with DBT.

today is the perfect day for an umbrella.

I often forgo umbrellas in even pouring rain, so this is not an idle comment.

I downloaded a Mad Libs app for my iPhone (the free version has only 4 "stories") and played with my mom on Saturday while I was in the hospital with her and my father. She was filling in the words, and you can sort of glean her mood from some of the words that were used to fill in the blanks...

For #4, Liz arrived at the hospital after just having taken a final for her class about Politics in South Africa.

Also note - I'm the one who was obsessed with the drip bags...

Hilarity ensues... )

I'm apparently in a movie-watching mood recently. Some movies I'd like to see (again):

  • Se7en
  • Less Than Zero
  • Cool World
  • The Breakfast Club
  • The Man Who Fell to Earth (never seen this one before)


Note: Check out the industrial-influenced album Outside (1997) by DB.

I just had this odd feeling of déjà vu and nostalgia brought on by the wafting scent of someone's meatloaf or roastbeef or something. And yet, the memory it dislodged had nothing to do with food. It was just me, sitting at my desk at work, feeling as if I had just started and that everything was new and I was kind of pretty darn nervous.

How that feeling is related to that scent, I don't know.


So in other news, I am unexpectedly and annoyingly free this weekend. The Electric Zoo thing is not going to work out as it's more than I can really justify spending at the moment. So I'm looking for other, cheaper things to do over this three-day weekend where everyone and their mother is apparently having way more fun than I will.

I'm scheduling something for myself on Monday, so that, at the very least -- if I end up lazing about like a bump on a log on Saturday and Sunday -- I'll at least have done one interesting thing. I'm going to get some cultcha in me. By visiting the MOMA to see this:

The Erotic Object: Surrealist Sculpture from the Collection

There's an 11:30am lecture/gallery talk for it that I'd really like to attend. Does anyone know if the admission price covers the lecture, or if that's additional?

Hmm, maybe I should make a day of it and go to the Museum of Sex.

Would anyone like to come along?

also, that blue pencil from aqueduct racetrack is older than my 21-year old sister.

and yes, two of my baby teeth are still in there, wrapped in gauze.

So after several years of having the same layout, I went and changed the color scheme, wording and default icon on a (sorta-)whim last night around 3am.

Obviously, this "whim" was influenced by the fact that I'm changing the name of my LJ and certain references no longer really accurately apply. This wasn't the Biggest Change EVAR or anything. I mean, I really like the Flexisquares layout best of all available layouts, and truthfully I don't want to spend an unreasonable amount of time coming up with something on my own. Therefore, change in colors, icon, and terminology -- and it's all like new!

YAY LAZINESS!

I started around 2:30/3am and I got so wrapped up that when I looked at the clock a few minutes later, it was 4:30! WTF! I truly felt like I was back in college days - fandom, websites, coding... fun times!

I'd also like to overhaul my website. Which mostly sits there doing nothing anyway.

And now I've run out of steam. I think I started writing this with more of a point. But it's gone now.




Also, if I ever "find religion", please shoot me.

Have to give credit to this excellent phishing email. None of the grammar is incorrect, though it still doesn't have the right flow... and yeah, English may be a germanic language, but we don't Capitalize Every Other Word Here.

Furniture that Will Give You Nightmares

I absolutely LOVE this stuff. Especially the puking desk and chair. And the rocking chairs. And the crime scene coffee table. And the froggie desk. OMG. THEY'RE SO AWESOME!

So my friend Raquel was going to go with me on a road trip this weekend. We'd finally agreed on where to go --

  • pick up a rental car in Philly [Sat/2hrs]
  • drive to Mill Run, PA, (where there's a 1.5 mile grounds tour at Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater) [Sat/5hrs]
  • drive to Pittsburgh to stay for the night [Sat/1hr]
  • drive to Erie, PA to stay for the night [Sun/2hrs]
  • drive back to Philly to return the car [Mon/7hrs]
  • bus back to NYC [Mon/2hrs]


I'm terribly disappointed, but she had to cancel as she's looking for an apartment right now and the place she and her roommate thought they had secured, fell through. =(

So now it's all up in the air again. I really wanted to take advantage of the fact that the 3-day weekend coincided with my birthday weekend -- to do something. Something different.

Still, I know that I'll have fun at Vic's BBQ on Saturday. And then I plan to do some driving over Sunday/Monday. I've been thinking about Balticon in Baltimore for the one day. See what it's like.

Or maybe I should just go get a tattoo or piercing? This could be a better use of the funds I would have spent.

Boo. I hate being this indecisive.

Also, I feel like mostly I'm just feeling SUPER-restless in contrast to the last several months of doing stuff every single weekend. ARGH FRUSTRATION.

Men who feel strong in the justice of their cause, or confident in their powers, do not waste breath in childish boasts of their own superiority and querulous depreciation of their antagonists.

-- James Russell Lowell, "The Pickens-and-Stealin's Rebellion", The Atlantic, June 1861


So true. So true.


In other news, I'm still sleepy as hell. WTF? I had 7 hours of sleep on Wednesday night and -- jeeeeezus -- a whole freaking 8 hours of sleep last night! And I'm still sleepy! I think I'm off my rhythm. Maybe I have to stay up late tonight, sleep in tomorrow, and then get back on my 6 hours a night routine.

But in other news, Majel Barrett Roddenberry died yesterday.

How sad. As a coworker said, it's the end of an era...

HOCKEY WEEK AT MODELL'S

Modell's Sporting Goods has your gift waiting during "Devils Hockey Week" at Modell's. Now through December 14, purchase $50 or more in hockey apparel or equipment at a participating Modell's Sporting Good Store and receive a pair of Devils tickets! Offer ends Sunday, December 14, or while supplies last. See store for promotional details.

Is this only at NJ Modell's?! I should go buy some hockey apparel. $50 for a pair of Devils tickets would be pretty cool.

Watched the Rangers vs. Chicago game. ! Even better because Cube and I chatted throughout! Entertaining. They won 4-2, and are now at 3-0 in the regular season. They haven't gone 3-0 since the 1989-90 season. SWEET CAROLINE! BAH BAH BAHHHH! =D Need to do that more!

Went dancing in Astoria industrial club. Music was pretty good early on, some parts were boring (as expected), but overall better music than Contempt. Fewer people, which was not so good and slightly lame/boring. =( But, SO CLOSE! Freaking 15-minute train ride from my house, which is OMG awesome!

Link joined me at around 1:30am, which made it not boring anymore. =D

I'd bought a bottle of water while waiting at a 24hr Dunkin' Donuts at the corner near the N train. Only drank half of it and on the way back to the club I put it down on a stack of construction materials.

Got some shots of tequila. Nice bartender. After dancing for an hour or so and then coming back toward the bar, the bartender lifted the tequila. When I said I didn't have enough to buy another shot, he poured one for me -- on him. <3 I found out his name is Percy. ^^;

Walked Link to the N train and we talked for like 45 minutes before finally saying goodnight. On my walk back over to the R train I passed by that stack of construction materials and picked up my water bottle. Hahahaha. Finished it up on my way home.

All in all, an UNwasted night. I always feel so accomplished when I get home at 5am. =D
