Darling, you've become positively optimistic!

The revolution will not be televised. Especially not if you're in the Middle East, North Africa, or parts of Asia and trying to watch it on youtube.

damn, j mullan, you really are a whore.

I made a joke about the token black guy at a party, and he was one of the housemates. I rule. His girlfriend suggested that we call him "token" for the rest of the party. I demurred.

Re: frosty freezers

That's so weird! When I was at Body Worlds on Saturday, a teenaged kid a few people up in the line from me passed out while we were looking at... Oh, I can't remember. Bones, maybe. SciMuseum security was right there, and helped the guy up, but he fainted again about 15 feet up. And don't be too hard on the guys with her, most guys do not know how to catch someone who falls without warning.

Mar 24, 2006 @ 16:20:43

Re: media's masking

I still can't believe you didn't blog about the protest besides to complain about the lack of media coverage. So much more happened there than your readers know. You and me and everyone with a blog are the new media.

But think of all the amazing things that happened. Talking to Zimmerman and learning about the chicken foot (for those who weren't there: chicken foot is representative of the semaphore symbols for N and D, representing nuclear disarmament. isn't it funny how much more complicated protest symbols used to be?). Seeing the anti anti war protesters driving home as we were walking down Nicollet? You totally had a moment with them, where you each acknowledged each other as having just as much right to have your opinions as them. It reminded me of when you told that story about watching two people argue about politics (I'm short on the details, but maybe one of them was a New Yorker and one was from Boston?) and a few minutes later they were sharing pats and jokes, and you were encouraged by seeing two diametrically opposed people get along in this divisive national climate. There were also the crazy hobos (who doesn't like a crazy hobo story? you'd have to be made of STONE!) and the black guy who was like "The iraq war is bullshit. I feel you guys. It's bullshit!" (he was my favorite, for the record)

It is SO WEIRD that you are making movies because I have been fantasizing about making an online news broadcast with my friend Joe Cusack as anchor (because he is Va-Voom Hott and our ratings would skyrocket, and also because he is just a few credits short of a journalism degree).

Re: a passing parley

I beg to differ. I, for one, have much better teeth than almost everyone I've met here so far.

And, I'm not lonely anymore. This 18-year-old from Australia moved into my room at the hostel yesterday. She left her country for the first time only to discover that her best friend, with whom she was supposed to stay, became a cokehead over the past few months and didn't want to have anything to do with her. Now the girl needs to find a place to work and a place to live and is depressed and lonely and feeling abandoned. And you know how I like a project.

Yesterday we went to Camden town and a 40+ man with a mohawk complimented me on my shoes. He was also hawking Doc Martens (which my shoes were), but I think it still counts.

How is a double decker bus (right hand drive) even possible in Whittier? (also, I was telling my new scottish friends about whittier but the one guy heard "wittier" and it made me laugh. URL?)

Heh, I still haven't internalized how people drive on the left side of the road here, and I saw a bus going down the street last night and my first thought was, "Weird. Why is that bus going so fast in reverse?"

On the hurricane note: I read a really creepy blogpage with an ad that says, "I'm so tired of meeting liberals at the bar!" and the slogan of the dating service is "sweethearts, not bleeding hearts". The list of places to learn about the hurricane and how to help is pretty astounding, too. You can check it out at michellemalkin (dot) com. (I didn't type the URL because trackbacks scare me)

Re: co-opting the co-op

When I realized my CDs were gone, the first thing I thought was, "This is Zach's fault somehow." And it so is. You're bad luck. Still, though, I don't want to admit how they got in. I gave a friend a ride and forgot to lock the door (my mind was totally somewhere else yesterday), which I've done probably dozens of times, so it was just by chance that it happened yesterday. I totally feel like an idiot for thinking that I was tired of all my musics and wanted new stuff, though.

sith is right; the smoking was just adding insult to injury. It still reeks in my car. Pout.

NO IPODS!! I'm not a yuppy yet.

and sith: My email address is in my xopl.com profile, and has been since March.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh SNAP!

Re: co-opting the co-op

Well, that's one hell of a coincidence, because we were playing that song just as you were writing this entry. I can't take the credit, though, Peter picked it out.

Man, I was having a great day until I came back from the fair (where I was <i>volunteering</i>. Where is my good karma?) and discovered that some jackasses broke into my car, smoked cigarettes (gross, winstons) with the windows up and stole all my CDs.

I bought cleaning supplies at the store today.

Oh, sith. My life is hardly boring enough for me to concern myself with making snarky comments about you or anyone else. And Zach doesn't even read it anymore, so he's out, too. Paranoia does not become you.

Re: particular problems

If I get an idea and I don't have the time or resources to blog about it, I make a note of it and write about it later. It's why I carry a notepad with me everywhere. And you did it, too, the night of the science theory slam.

Beyond that (and I know this is easier said than done), you should blog for yourself only. I know I nag you to update sometimes, but you needn't feel obligated to write just because your readers want you to. We tell you what we want, and then you figure out what you want. (sith will disagree)

Re: nugatory noodlings

Damn, I knew putting an arrow in would cut off my story like that, and I did it anyway. the parenthetical had an arrow pointing to the part in quotes and said, "direct quote"

Lots of people called with requests and happy thoughts for Kelsey's and my little birdy, so that was nice. I totally felt like it was a Peter Pan "I do believe in fairies!" kind of thing. I hope it was enough.... The poor guy's leg was hanging limply from one side and I could see a pretty deep gash from Enki's mouth.

Aug 11, 2005 @ 19:37:46

Re: nugatory noodlings

Okay, A: you should link to the story about your Chirpy JR.


My roommate's cat caught a bird today (i take back everything i ever said about him being too stupid to catch animals). There was a window open downstairs and a bird flew in, and my other roommate Kelsey came home to Enki (that's the cat) with the bird hanging out of his mouth.

Luckily for the bird, Enki IS too stupid to keep a bird in his mouth while "playing" with Kelsey. The bird flew away so it was caught between the lower pane of an open window and the upper pane, while the cats stood in the sill and batted at it.

Kelsey and I banished the cats to their owner's room, and then tried as best we could to get the bird out without injuring it further. At one point, it looked right at me and chirped very loudly, as if to say, "I clearly can't do this on my own, you'll have to help me out of here. Hey, watch the wings." It was the only time he chirped.

We closed the window all the way and the bird refused refuge in the small box I had ready, and flew up on top of the pantry shelves. I climbed up and tried to grab it, but it flew away again. Kelsey contributed a startled shriek and then watched me run around after it (i'm the man in this relationship).

It flew into the dining room (we have a rather large place), and was too exhausted to move anymore, so I picked it up and put it in the box.

Remembering that Zach had taken a wild bird somewhere, and knowing that I'd read his postcard update, but not remembering the name of the place, I phoned him, then emailed, then texted. Obsessive? Yes. But the poor little bird was in shock and it needed to be somewhere better than here quick. I kill cacti. Kelsey and I googled it and found the place just as Zach called back.

I drove us, and Kelsey yelled at me every time I took a curve too fast while cooing at the bird. "There you go, buddy.... We're gonna take you to the doctor and make you better! ...Aww, Christy, he looked at me! We have to give it a name." We couldn't agree on its gender (i thought male), so we didn't actually pick a name. Chirpy JR to the second power, while extremely lame, might be the best we got.

We brought it in and I gave too small a donation (hey, i'm not making corporate pay yet), and the woman thanked us for bringing it in and gave me a magnet for my trouble.

Then, while dj-ing today, I asked for lots of bird-themed requests, and even got suckered into playing Ween (i had some dude call me and say, "what IS this? this is f-in terrible!"

Re: castigative couch and the k

I told A-bomb that I'd sub for the MLC guys if they can't do a show one weekend. I'll let you know when that happens and maybe you'll join me again. Oh, yeah, and I'm awesome, but I'll explain why later. Although you should already know that.

Call me a wuss again and see what happens, Zach, I dare ya.

I think the waitress was hotter than Uma, personally. Uma's face looks a little funny, but waitress-girl didn't have the asymmetry so her face looks more pleasant. And she had more junk in the trunk, which I approve of. I kept accidentally staring at her boobs... What am I, a 14-year-old boy?

A blog entry search feature would be nice. And 74, you fell prey to a similar folly as me. Beware the POSTDATA warning!

And OR0SL, ALL ABOUT HANSON. Zach showed me his shrine once.

Aug 1, 2005 @ 22:58:38

Re: unbothersome badinage

If you're nervous about talking to a girl, play it off by asking her questions about herself. Most girls prefer a boy who will listen to a boy who can talk, and that way you can hedge your bets a bit and find out if she's someone who would interest you before you have to try to interest her in you.

That said, the first thing you should say to a girl you want to talk to is this: "Hi, I'm sith, what's your name?" and not "this is my first time", etc (most online forums will teach you that n00bs are not treated very nicely, especially those who announce it in an effort to win pity) If she's nice, then continue with finding out about her. If she's not very receptive, wish her a good day and exit at your earliest opportunity. Don't blame yourself; she might have a boyfriend, she might be having a bad day, or she might just be a little nervous about talking to a strange boy. And even if she is abrasive because she doesn't want to talk to you, the next girl might really want to talk to you, and you'll sabotage yourself by dwelling on what you may or may not have done wrong. Oh, and just because she's nice doesn't mean she's interested, find out common interests before trying to get a number. I know it sounds complicated, but it gets easier. Sorry I don't know of some magic fairy dust or a special cologne.

And also, don't get down if you don't get a date the first, or even the fifth, time. Salesmen only make their sales 5% of the time, and it's a little crass, but that's a lot of male-female interaction: selling yourself. And the ones who win every time aren't the kind of guy you want to be, anyway.

This has been the christymonster's tutorial on how to meet women.

Re: flummoxed lummox

Zach, you should write an entry so I'm not forced to blog for you.

The road under the railroad bridge by my house was totally washed out in the rain today. There was a car that was stuck right in the deepest part; the water was 3 inches above the line of the door. It was the first time I'd ever seen that here, maybe anywhere.

I considered trying to get my minivan through the shallower part of it to turn onto my street, but seeing the family standing in halfway-up-the-shin water dissuaded me. YAY FLASH FLOOD!

Jul 24, 2005 @ 23:25:33

Re: flummoxed lummox

Thanks sith. Don't worry, I'll never go away forever. What would you do without me? You'd be bored silly, that's what!

Oh, and thanks for the couch offer (although isn't it really a loveseat??), but I'll be fine, surely, as long as I don't ever drive down that street again. Sucks, though, it's my favorite way to get to the gross-ery store.

Oh, and St Paul's probably too far for my vinnie-man's ailing transmission. That sentence sounds funnier than I meant it to be.

Jul 24, 2005 @ 22:04:15

Re: flummoxed lummox

I have a real problem with writing off-topic things, but I wanted to announce that I was an eyewitness to gang violence just blocks away from my house today. The getaway SUV chased after me for several blocks to intimidate me out of calling the authorities.

On an unrelated note, is anyone in Minneapolis looking for a roommate, oh, tomorrow?

Re: billy baxter's benevolence

I should also say that I'm speaking as a girl who dated an older man at the age of 19 (he was 29). He enjoyed my youthful spirit for a while, then ditched me when I wasn't mature enough for him. It hurt to be regarded disdainfully as immature even though I was only immature in reference to him (and that's arguable, besides), not to myself. That's perspective I didn't have at that age.

All that said, xz is right. Youthfulness is appealing, and 23 is still too young to be so serious about all this. If age is all that's stopping you, go for it.

pamelaNeko: that was gross, but I still laughed.

Jul 5, 2005 @ 01:27:27

Re: self-sustained suffering

Sigh... Talking down to the ladies just makes the ones who aren't worth it love you. However, having a sense of self-worth is appealing to the girls who would rather not deal with insecurity bullshit, etc etc. You don't have to be an asshole to show you like who you are as a person.

Jul 1, 2005 @ 17:12:37

Re: billy baxter's benevolence

On the age difference thing, I know it's kind of a different thing for girls, but I can tell the maturity difference in boys who are even only a year younger. It's certainly possible to meet someone who is very mature for their age; it is also quite rare. And as a girl who was once 19, there is a HUGE difference between 19 and 23. And there's a big difference between those who are in school and those who are graduated. It's a good idea to be open-minded, but I think the hesitation is warranted.

Re: billy baxter's benevolence

Well, sith, I will be an undergrad for only another 5 weeks, so your offer is wasted on me.

I think the important part about Zach's pseudo-man-whorism is that while he appears to check out every girl who walks past him, he rarely talks to any of them. Only dumb girls think their boyfriend doesn't look.

Jun 30, 2005 @ 08:37:00

Re: billy baxter's benevolence

I always regret it if I wake up before my alarm and sleep through it anyway, too. The hospital stuff was interesting. I've only been twice (once to visit a friend), and I definitely didn't do anything exciting. When I was an MRI labrat, though, the researchers regularly told me that I was really good at staying very, very still. I want to put that on my resume.

I despise Sterb's, but if I go there, I either drink PBR or Shiner Bock. Kelsey doesn't like SB very much.

I don't know what Ookie Cookie is.

I laughed at "convenience me". I had to read it three times.

You could see a capybara, maybe, if you went to the Amazon. They were my favorite animal because I liked the name, and then I saw them on a nature show and discovered that they're just like guinea pigs, only the size of a pig. I saw one get eaten from the inside out by piranhas. HAT! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capybara

There were lots of parrots at the Pride festival this weekend. No girls who looked like a darker version of Kirsten Dunst, though.

PS. That plot line with the man and amnesiac son bugged the hell out of me, always. I liked FFIII (or 6, depending on your nation of preference/level of geekdom) because you could resolve every one of those, and there were at least 3.

I remember that episode, but I won't share what I'd wish for because you'd break it by saying how she'd fuck it up.

Also, I never took it as how the genie tried to fuck shit up for the sake of fucking it up. I figured she was telling the wisher that sometimes when you wish for something, what you end up getting is counter to what you want on the most basic level.

The Shania Twain song was "Any Man of Mine." (insert evil laughter here)

The can't-stop-laughing bit was surely due, in part, to how I kept trying to say, "right, so, this dot-com documentary" 4 or 5 times. And the fact that it was really funny that you couldn't stop laughing.

Oh, poor sith. I know better than to take anything you say (at least here) seriously. Besides, it was all worth it to see you squirming in recollection of all the comments you've made to me since January.

"What I'm saying is, I'd like you to get drunk and make out with me." Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Oh, I'm being cruel. I introduced myself because I figured giggling at you for no apparent reason through the duration of the elevator ride would be more cruel. Perhaps I should have laughed on the inside, though, because now you've been outed as (gasp!) a human being with (gasp! gasp!) feelings. How will you live with yourself?

In short, think nothing of it. Contract killers are hard to come by anyway these days. Nobody can compete with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

Re: completely recockulous

Well, not you specifically, obviously. Substitute all (but the first) instances of "you" with "one". (smartass)

My point was: maybe deja vu is an indication that the person is good for you, not because there is some big cosmic importance in the relationship, but because that person makes you forget about the transience and hardships that life is about most of the time, or less cynically, they remind you how great life can be, even if it only happens sometimes.

Re: completely recockulous

I always forgot to tell you this:

I read a few months ago that when you have deja vu, it's because you're living completely in the present, instead of worrying about the past or the future.

Re: to the winch, wench

It's funny how your perception of a movie can change in 10 years. I liked it, although I did have help ;)

Man, that's so weird that you ran into Nate. When I got there, I thought to myself that I was sure to run into one of you.

Goddamn, you discussed MY hatred for Dave Matthews? Am I forgetting conversations again? I certainly do hate Dave Matthews, but I definitely don't remember talking about it with either of you.

Oh, if you were there, I was in the group with the guy who was cheering and laughing and singing along through the entire movie. Stupid roommates and their stupid friends.

Zach, I need a decoder ring for ALL of your comments, not just the ones that are written in 0s and 1s.

Re: pestiferous programming

I've had a similar issue. It was while I was using UNIX machines more often than I do now, and I could just do CTRL+C to change the case. But in Microsoft world, that command is "copy."

But, now that you've brought it up, I've discovered that I can make Microsoft do Title caps for me, which has always been the bane of my lazy fingers' existence. Also, hyphenation.

I enjoyed the line, "assrapingly stupid" by the way.

It's beautiful. I'm glad it worked out.

Also, tori is the proper plural of torus, but only an english professor, a know-it-all mathematician, or a latin scholar would correct you on it.

Re: lord of the bling

Respiratory droplets... that's disgusting. Pneumonic plague, though, is neat. When I was younger, I used to be obsessed with this show called "University Hospital" and they had an episode where some dude flew in from Bombay and he had The Plague, which caused high drama as all the student doctors had to be quarantined inside the hospital and then, inexplicably, the power went out. After studying bubonic/pneumonic plague, though, I found out that they'd gotten their plagues mixed up, as the infected showed symptoms of both. Shouldn't expect too much from a UPN show, anyway.

Re: not for sith's

I had a dream that my roommates and I accidentally had a party. That is, we all invited 6 people over the same night, and everyone ended up just hanging out. And then an hour later, everyone else left at the exact same time. Yours is scarier.

Re: voluble in valkenvania

Oh, and I didn't go to the impound lot with Zach, because he would have found it if I had (I've never been towed, I just have a good sense of direction). I went with my roommate who left the house 10 minutes later than me that day and watched the tow truck disappear around the corner with her car on the back.

Feb 23, 2005 @ 08:59:55

Re: voluble in valkenvania

I didn't see any drug dealers OR any hoods. Well, there were a couple, but they were on their best behaviour and didn't try to budge.

There was a little black kid behind us in line with his mother, and every couple of minutes he would start to tell a story that made him laugh so hard he couldn't tell the story to anyone else.

Right behind him was a mom (with her fake-tanned, highlighted hair daughter) who just HAD to be from Edina, and she complained about the whole process through the entirety of the line. At the end, she told the little boy to be good to his momma AND to get good grades in school.

Re: extirpate and expatriate

Um, no, I've been saying smoove for a long time (I think I got it from a movie... I can't remember which one it was). I hope we can agree to share the word; I would hate to have to tear you to shreds in court. Somehow, I don't think you'd be nearly as cute after being schooled by Judge Judy.

Also, I'm bitter because sith is funnier than me. Although I suppose berating isn't ever as funny as hooker murder.

Re: six solid inches

Snow rules! I drove to MOA to see a movie, and then when we got there, we found out that the late movies had been cancelled because of the weather. Then we spun out on the ramp to North 77. I don't think I would have survived the trip if there had been any more than 5 cars on the road all night. Bumper cars are the coolest. The Aunt Jemima story made me laugh.
