Mmm Ice Cream

As I sit here eating ice cream, I thought I'd say hi.

Not too much happening this weekend other than dodging Japanese homework and being mostly car-less. (in the shop till tomorrow but borrowing other cars) I missed Japanese all last week, (2 classes) Im so dead.

Last nite went to go see Meet the Fockers. It was mostly amusing (mostly because I had a few drinks before I went) but honestly a crappy movie. An easy formula to tell if a sequel is good or not is 'Would this be a good movie if the first one (or 8, whatever) didnt exist?' Fockers is a no. Casting was good and it was entertaining, but a movies in trouble when it has to refer to its preqel for jokes...

I also discovered something wonderful. You see, I love music, but I completely refuse to be one of those people (idiots) that puts 'now listening to _____' on the blog, beacuse I know 99% of normal people dont care. (Then again do 'normal' people read blogs?)

Anyway, Audioscrobbler has given me a solution and oh-so-much-more. Not only will it tell you what I've listened to lately, but also my favorite stuff overall. It also has streaming radio based on what I like to listen to AND I can surf others listings and listen to THEIR favorite music, helping me find new artists and such. My Music is now linked on the side of this blog. So feel free to look/listen to it.

Note their poor server is mostly horribly overloaded, so you may have to refresh once or twice in awhile. Its still worth it.

In website news, I fixed the major stumbling block of the new blog layout this week (check the Test Blog link at the right) But still have to tweak the sizes and colors and such. Ive also been working on learning php/mysql for the website. Once I figure this out Ill be able to add to the site much easier and better, but its somewhat infuriating to learn two things that intertwine at once, because if something goes wrong Im not sure which. (although I seem to have an easier time with php)

Anyway, before this becomes another HUGE post...

Be an artist. This is so cool. Heres my butchering of an online friends work (I did the end) Then she butchered mine (should be obvious) And I even used it to put a smile on a friends face. (and no, I cant draw)

My new superpower!!

Lets see, since windows doesnt like connecting to my cellphone (softwares fault) no pics, so heres the summary. :P

Spent all weekend with Jeannine, think we're a bit sick of eachother. (At least she is of me)

Fri- went to see Hitch (google it yourself) great movie. I almost never buy movie DVDs, this one I'm buying. Jeannine spent a solid 5 mins laughing herself to tears because a fat guy fell down at the very end (not a spoiler dont worry) which I found quite funny except the fact I had a large rootbeer to unload so it hurt to laugh.

Sat- Off in the limo for someones birthday I didnt know. Jeannine invited me and was the only one there I knew. Still was pretty darn fun, and everyone was really nice, except the limo driver was annoying has hell. He was treating us like teenagers going to winter formal rather than adults. (Btw he should be proscecuted because I swear he stole Norm McDonnalds voice...) Most of the time was spent in the limo since it was pouring rain. (Now 4th ranniest season on record for Los Angeles, was 7th as of Thursday. The whole state is sliding off into the ocean.) Still, being in a limo isnt really something to complain about.

Apparently at some point durring the night I was doing squats or something, because my legs hurt like hell till today. It was also eventful in that I finally got to talk to a Japanese person that found me on ICQ. (yes, at 3am when I got home...)

Sun- Hangover not withstanding... THE RETURN OF PROSPECTORS! I love that bar. Jeannines cousin Marie moved out of the area so we hadnt been there since, but because of the long weeked she came back. Wasnt overly exciting, I've definately had better nights there, but its still Prospectors damnit. Prob wont be going back there anytime soon either... so I stole a pint glass with their logo. *hides*

Mon- was day of recovery (apparently 1 of 2) for what turned out to be a two day hangover. (3 if you count Sunday) It wasnt that I was in pain, but.....

I have a new superpower!!!

Apparently, no matter how late I go to bed, no matter how much I drink, eat, excercize, etc... I'm wide awake at 7:45am. I'm actually really glad for this, except for the fact I went to bed at 3 friday, 4:30 saturday and 5 sunday. Even last nite I was up till 3 sleepless.... so..

Tue- (today) hasnt been too exciting. Took a couple naps and other than that the most exciting thing is the pizza from Chicago we recieved today, love that stuff, cooking it now ^_^

And yes the blog is still naked.

In the mistaken assumption people actually read this thing, I need help on The test blog. Its looking very much like I want it to, but the comments page is just WRECKED. I have no idea why. I dont know how to read bloggers itempage tags.

Even if you cant fix it, I'm interested in what you think of it. I wanted something different and non-linear. Comment here to let me know. ^^
Help wanted!

Woa, life got exciting!

Wow I may have to start posting here more often, this is gonna be another long one.

Saturday nite, my brother calls my mom and says hes commin by in an hour to move out... o.O, er ok... nice notice Frank.
Freaked my mom out, and was just weird, but thats just how he is...

Valentines day!
Hate this holliday. Always single. So I think of things to entertain myself.
This time I outdid myself...

Had to go into my client, and decided to play quite a prank on the receptionist.
She has a long-time boyfriend. So I knew I was safe doing this. (we get along but not THAT well..)
So I grab an empty ringbox.....
Now I was gonna just leave it empty, but that wasnt good enough.
So I wrote a note.
"{her name withheld},
I cant resist.
(messing with you)
I just wanted to see
(the look on your face)
I know you have other (real) Valentines, but I am
Folded up the note and put it in the ringbox.

The point was to see her face when I handed it to her. I expected shock and fear, but she had a look of pure horror on her face. (that I guess put me in my place lol) I was trying to do it straight-faced, but I had to smile to soften it.
Once she read the note she busted up laughing, I had guessed right that she had a good enough sense of humor to enjoy it.

Today she tells me her boyfriend wants to talk to me LOL, turns out he needs computer help ^^ (she did tell him, he made fun of her)

But ya, after a long boring lul, life is speeding up. This Friday might be hittin the bars in a limo for Jeannines friends birthday, and Sunday I'm DEFINATELY goin back to PROSPECTORS!! (a bar I love)

Stay tuned...

Well no, not realy, I wouldnt do that to you. But the blog is.

Couldnt stand that layout anymore, it just HAD to die.
So i gave it a nice naked look, and it inspired me to actually work on a real layout.

got real ambitious on this so I had a lot of trouble. Spent the better part of the last 2 days on it.

The probs I have left are the comments page is totally messed up, and the stupid blogger bar likes to print itself out doubleize for no reason whatsoever.

Anyway, its on the test blog, you can see im going for something a little different ^^

If you care to, leave comments on how it looks for you, with the browser you use and your resolution. Im testing in IE and Firefox, but im at 1280x1024.

The Test Blog

dealing with the gov sucks part 1 of ?

So when I got in my little accident I decided that maybe I should start wondering where the heck my renewed drivers liscence is. It had been about 60 days which it turns out is the time to start wondering.

So I call the ever so friendly and efficient DMV about when I was going to get it in the mail. Amazingly, the menu system was one of the best Ive dealt with recently and I got to a human after about 2 minutes of menu and 2 minutes on hold.

The woman was nice and helpful, she told me that I havent gotten my drivers liscence because the DMV had intergrated with the national social security database, and my Social Security numbers dont match. I would need to come in with a social security card to get my liscence.

So a couple questions came to my mind. I asked her if they were ever going to notify me of this or if I was understood to be psychic. She said yes, but Sacremento (our lovely dirtbowl state capital) had a 8-10 week 'backup' on sending out the notices. (Seriously how hard is that, I bet they dont even have to lick a stamp.)

She was nice tho, so the question I didnt ask was: If your're not going to send me my liscence, WHY did you cash the check? But really, its government, if someone sends them a check theyre DAMN well gonna cash it.

So the problem is: I dont HAVE a SS card, it burned in my fire like 12 yrs ago. So first I gotta get that. Leading me to the lovely 'Ziggaraut' federal building.

!!if windows would talk to my phone there would be a picture here!!

No parking in the front entrance, (later i found out there was in the back) so I and several others at least (Seemed most going in or out) had to park across the street at the Walmart, but thats ok, I like to walk.

Thru the metal detector I go. Pass, didnt even have to take off belt or shoes or anything. Then I walk up to the room I'm gonna have to sit in and he tells me if I have a phone I have to shut it off. So I do, but he quickly changes his tune and tells me I have to put it in my car. (turns out its because its a camera phone)

I protested, telling him I was all the way across the street and could he or the other security gaurd hold it. Nope, thats too inteligent, back to my car I went. Dumped off my palm too to prevent further retardedness. (missed that palm later while waiting)

Finally get to the window. Dont get the exceedingly attractive girl, get the guy instead. He takes my name and tells me to wait. 45 pointless minutes later my name is called (by the same guy.. my luck sucks) and Im done in 30 seconds.

So glad to be out of there.

Getting home I called my seemingly long lost friend Jeannine who invited me to lunch with Lydia (whos name I still am not sure how to spell and am beginning to care less and less) and had fun, being outdoors restored me.

Of course, whenever this card finally comes in the mail, I get to repeat the process at the dmv, I bet thatll be even MORE fun...

I have very descriminating tastes.

When I go to hit a car, I cant just hit any car. Today I hit a MERCEDES SUV.
To be honest, theres almost no damage to her hulking behemoth. Afterall, it was my car that slid allong her back corner basically just chipping some paint off her while caving in my entire wheel well.

She was nice about it, and to be honest kinda hot, but probably one of those well pampered MV MLFs.

Did I mention the mercedes was brand new?

go me
