I feel just like Stu Sutcliffe

This one took me by complete surprise.



I received this in the mail today all the way from Hamburg Germany.
It's from the current incarnation of a club that the Beatles used to play sometime around 1960-62.
What a way to brighten up a dark and dreary day.
Thank you Sandra!!!

I'm sorry, but in this pic Jonnie looks like the kind of guy who might have taken Goober's place at Wally's Filling Station after Goober moved to Mt. Pilot to become assistant manager of the new Sunoco station.

To make up for the bogus Peanuts quiz ...

You are:
Schroeder
Wishy-Washy: 53%, Mental: 50%, Physical: 28%
A prodigy from his very first appearance, Schroeder idolises Beethoven and spends most of his free time at the keyboard of his piano. He plays backstop for Charlie Brown's baseball team, but his heart belongs to classical music. The best way to get rid of annoying distractions is to yank the piano out from under them.



You scored higher than 51% on wishywashystuff
You scored higher than 20% on brainstuff
You scored higher than 6% on physicalstuff

Take the Peanuts Character test.

Bam a lam

I just received an email from AmyJo asking me to post this song for Sandra.
Black Betty by Nick Cave and the Seeds

Since all the cool bloggers HATE quizzes ...

Pppermint Patty
You are Peppermint Patty! Peppermint Patty is a pro
on the baseball diamond, but in the classroom
she's a D-minus all the way. Bold, brash and
tomboyish, what she lacks in common sense she
makes up for in sincerity. She's the only one
who calls Charlie Brown "Chuck."
Oblivious to much that goes on around her, for
a long time she seemed unaware that "the
funny-looking kid who plays shortstop" was
a beagle. She has trouble staying awake in
class; most of her waking hours in the
schoolroom are spent analyzing the probability
patterns of true-false tests.


Which of the Peanuts Characters Are You?

Thanks!

One of many things I'm thankful for is this found scrap of 99 Cent Store wrapping paper :


I think they wrap glassware with it or something. I found a stack of it at the checkout counter and grabbed a sheet while my order was being entered into the cash register.

And 2 episodes of The Apprentice will be airing tonight!

Cookie the Kitty

My niece bought her new kitten up for Thanksgiving.

T'is a pity she's a whore-ible cook.

Thankful!?
Pssh.

Well here's some things in case you're writing a book.

Nintendo, Metroid, Modest Mouse
Not having to work on that damn house
Gorillaz, Hellboy, Star Wars and Weevil
The screen adapation of Resident Evil
Pink ties, Hulk, and friends that don't suck
When Thrasher's Dan Heatley got hit with a puck
the cold, old shirts, pictures and books
The fact that Rosa's obsessed with her looks
The things I learn in boz's blog
nuclear boobs and Benny the dog
Saw and it's sequel, and Fatboy Slim
I can't believe Jonnie took pictures of him
I sometimes want to inquire
to the fee that's required
to get in on Sandra's Black Bettie Cult.
The fact that my place is never a mess.
The doctor that studies AmyJo's PMS.
Erin, the ending to Carlito's Way
Belle's crush on me that exists to this day.
Poker and Pepsi, the great Jim Carrey
How Dvl's silence makes her so scary.
The thing's that he shows me
it shows that he knows me.
Markin' my path till the day that I'm gone...

gratitude ingratitude

So the Indians saved the pilgrims from starving and everyone gave thanks. Not much later in the great scheme, people got kind of greedy--not those pilgrims, and not those indians, but you know how the story goes, westward expansion, death marches, genocide, casinos.

So anyway this morning I am trying to do the old fashioned kindergarten thing of listing what I am grateful for (somehow my childhood lists always turned seamlessly into christmas lists, itemized, for santa to find--they were less about what I was thankful for and more about what I would be thankful for if my mom would just buy it for me. I doubt I have changed all that much.) and also thinking about what I have taken for granted, crapped on, trampled and left on the reservation.

gratitude/ingratitude list

non-romantic love.
fair health.
living parents who are healthy and (relatively) sane.
living grandparents (ditto) .
sisters (ditto and more)
standardized tests
a paycheck (however small)
the weather around here
shoe leather
being child and pet free
and I'd like to thank all the little people who made this possible--the ones who make my coffee and my clothes and my meals and give me parking tickets and volunteer at their local animal shelters and allow me to live like a fucking princess, when you think about it, when you think about it I barely have to lift a finger for myself except to feed things into machines or to buy things or to pump gas that is conveniently located on every corner, etc etc into infinity.


And of course a couple things that I am unmitigatedly grateful for, always and forever:

Otis Redding and
dogs

And to all the turkeys, jive and otherwise, who drown in the rain and let me gnaw their flesh once a year.

But Santa, if you're reading this, I'd really like a bicycle this year.

From one Jive Ass Turkey to another.

NO, I just said he "sounds" like he's twelve.

I'm so sorry, I've been "missing" lately.
I feel bad, really, I do.

I was in a pretty bad car accident recently, and that kinda kept out of the game. But I promise, I'll be out of this funk and blogging like there's NO TOMORROW.
That's right, I'll write on this here internet like I assume that time will randomly stop and the world will end.

So I'm guessing there'll be alot of:

HOLY SHIT WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE BECAUSE TIME IS GOING TO STOP AND FOR SOME REASON TIME IS AN ESSENTIAL INGREDIENT IN OUR LIVING.
Then exclaimation points, like so:

!!!!!!!

and some numbers because I can't hold down the shift key long enough to express my panic.
Like so:

!!!!1111!!!1!

So look out for exclaimation points and time ending and panic and shit.
It'll be awesome.

Art Work

Jonnie really looks scared.



Not my actual bed because it hasn't been delivered yet, but the night stand, lamp, and rug are almost identical to what is already in my bedroom.

Tis almost the season

Would anyone like a Xmas Mix CD?
It might even include dvl singing Santa Baby.

Snow pics for rosa posa posa

It's just a light dusting and it will probably be gone by afternoon, but this is what I saw when I took out the trash this morning.







If you squint you can see the infamous 1003 under the porchlight in the last picture.

Kahlo Doll-O!

Look what's for sale at L.A.'s Olvera street market -


Frida Kahlo Doll.
[ Click to view larger image ]

It would be a great gift for boz, but it didn't have a price tag, and I don't speak Spanish very bueno. The surrounding dolls were priced in the $190.00 range, but that is because Olvera street vendors like to barter.

Lots of other good Frida Kahlo products for sale there - prints, post cards, shrines, candles - I got boz the cheapest item possible though, since my first paycheck will not arrive until Nov. 25

Stormtrooper Watch

I just took a whirlwind trip down to Florida.
Why?
Because I'm awesome.

But that's not WHY-WHY.
Here's why-why.
I went to Florida, drove 12 hours STRAIGHT to Florida so that I could...
Go to Savannah, Georgia.
(yeah, I know)

Okay the story starts a long time ago with me trying to go to college. Film college. Art college. Collage College. I tried and tested, filmed and wrote, mailed and received for a year straight. Then one day their answer comes, "You're accepted, bitch."
I was elated.
Then something happened and I still don't know what. I didn't go. That would make two years in which I did nothing productive but write. Two YEARS. When I was 8 I did not look forward to spending 2 years doing nothing when I was supposed to be in college getting an Awesome in Film.

So in a year's time a friend of mine decided he wanted to come with me to college and pursue a degree in Sound Design so that he could become a music producer some day. We heard that the college (Savannah College of Art and Design) was having a SCADday (I know it sounds like a charity effort for those that have contracted the deadly disease). SCADday is where you take a full tour of the facilities and ask any and all questions about your intended major. So basically the trip was for the day of SCAD, however my friend's older brother lives in Florida and we stopped in to say "Hi."

Yeah. Stopped in.
280 miles for a stop in.
Fuck stop ins.

Anyway, that was my last 4 days.
That's where I've been.
It's been 2 days and I've only had 4 hours of sleep.
If you add all that up.
4+4+2+8+365(2)+280+1
You get a headache.
...and SCAD simplex type 2.

Sunday Haiku

The autumn wind howls
The leaves whirl like dervishes
It's time for a change

Now with 10% more goodlooking-ness

A little while back i was lucky enough to get a free makeover thingy at my local clinique counter. It was totally extravagent and not the sort of thing that i would usually go for, but it was free after i had bought a bucket load of skin supplies so i went along to be pampered for an hour. The results were.. interesting after i took off the majority of the orange bronzer that left me looking like an oompa loompa sex worker i took a picture of me striking a very vain looking pose and while it makes me giggle it doesnt make me wanna hurl. which is a nice change.

Weekend Update

People have really been busy around here lately so I thought I'd give a brief update on what is going on with the various members.
Belle is still with her father.
AmyJo is working a lot of overtime, commuting three hours a day, taking part in the PMS sleep clinic, and expecting a visit from her father this weekend.
Sandra had minor surgery this past week and is walking around Hamburg with a plastic bag taped around her leg.
Jonnie has found a temporary full time job working in the stock room of a publishing company, at least I think it's a publishing company, so I guess we'll have to come up with a new nickname for him now because Rebel Leady Boy just doesn't work.
Rosa is in <3 with some bloke with mosquito bites.
Thedexter is ummmmm, thedexter is ummmmm, thedexter is ummmmm, at least I think he is.
Dvl is questioning my toughness over on buzznet.
And me, I'm just my usual omnipotent self.

Sandra's surgery

Sandra is having what she calls minor surgery on Tuesday and I was going to post a funny surgery pic, but the only funny surgery pics I could find were of men, and since her surgery isn't a sex change (or is it???) I didn't think they would be appropriate, but if you can find a suitable funny surgery pic please post it because I'm sure that Sandra would appreciate it.

Crazy-Go-Nuts

Last night I met a girl who, upon hearing that I can use the internet, said, 'Hey you should be Myspace friends with my teddy bear.' So, um, I accepted internet friendship with her bear. However, I got to thinking...

What kind of woman says 'befriend an internet profile for my bear' instead of 'become friends with me'? And how does sex work with her? Does the my-bear-first thing always apply? 'Oh you hot stud I sure want your body but first you have to put your wang in this stuffed bear wearing a cowboy hat.'

And while you're thinking 'Why would I do that?' you know what that bitch is doing? Making a hat made out of waffles because that bitch be crazy.

I'm glad RW...BS girls aren't like that.
I mean, what kind of crazy person gives a stuffed animal a blog?
Sheesh.
