believe it or not, my white trash roommate is strumming his guitar (sucking at it) singing (terribly sucking at that, too) racist songs he is making up about picking cotton. srsly? he is probably the number one reason i have zero faith in people. honestly, wtf?!?! can't. wait. to. move. outta. here.
I love how there are some songs by Mae that you can totally rock out to. This is such a song. Me, Dar, and Sarah were front and center during the show and if you were standing behind us I am pretty sure you saw a lot of Asian hair swishing about when the short spurts of head banging commenced at climaxes and cresendos of songs. Srsly, I was having way too much fun.
PS. Jacob Marshall is uberleet cute in this video on his damn orange drums. (Did I mention we took pictures with the band after the show? And that JM had his sweaty arm around my shoulder. hahahaha, too fun for a fangirl such as myself.)
“My bad man, I totally forgot I’m supposed to be at a staff briefing today. I was just so excited about seeing you it slipped my mind. I got Lina Fever and it blocked my brain from thinking.”—Carlos, on misisng lunch with me today. Bwahahahahaha, he really enjoys overly flattering me. IDK why, but it helps pass the time at work.
matty poo and jack's mannequin > houston's buzzfest
Tiff, you are a lucky lucky LUCKY little sister.
I just got invited to Buzzfest, which is the same day as the JM show at Stubb’s and I’m turning down:
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Boo, how (un)fortuitous that Buzzfest and MN+JM are on the same day… and Mother’s Day, to boot. Oh well, you all know where my loyalties lie.
[PS. Just FYI: unfortuitous is not a word because fortuitous is a happening by accident or chance regardless of fortunate or unfortunate consequences; although, culturally and in literature it has often been associated with happy or lucky accidents, thus my inclination to use the word unfortuitous despite it not being an actual, legit word.]
fuckkk, first US swine flu death. fuckkk. all hell is going to break lose now.
I really didn’t want anyone to die from this curable disease, but it looks like someone just did. A little kid, naturally. They tend to have super weak immune systems and are obviously vulnerable.
But I really don’t get what the big freakin deal is. All this WHO talk about the possibility of it being then next pandemic is just fearmongering paranoia. All that means is that Swine Flu doesn’t have a vaccination yet. It’s curable, just rest, get meds, and get well. Stop freaking out. It will cause mass hysteria for no reason. …oh, too late.
I mean, as a whole, people have bigger things to worry about. Heart disease is the number one killer in the US and most people don’t even know that they are suspectible to it. And breast cancer, how many women actually take precautions to check themselves regularly? Probably not as many as are freaking about swine flu right now. I just think it’s completely ridiculous to freak about this Swine Flu, could be pandemic, could be the next Spanish Flu blah blah blah. It’ll be okay, and if it’s not okay, we’ll deal with it then.
Kids are getting AIDS. AIDS! 80% of new US AIDs victims are less than 18 years old. WTF is that about?
Not to discount the severity of Swine Flu on the victims it ails, but I think the normal, random US citizen has bigger, more horrific things to be fearful of than some theoretically and possibily dangerous, not life-threatening flu.
But fuckkk, all hell is going to break lose now and I don’t know if I can handle seeing more shit about it on the Internet. Oh dear.
correction from my twitter: that's 20+ million texans. 3 out of 20+ million texans have the swine flu. that means everyone needs to calm the eff down already. did i mention that NO one in the US has died yet of swine flu? i will let you know when masks and wide spread panic is due. but don't hold your breath.

weekend, TBD - meeting with Sarah and her accomplished freelancer friend who is apparently willing to team up with me for a bit so I can take on his unwanted, smaller, less pay projects (perfect for a little self-starter like myself); this is great! I can’t wait to meet him and hang out with Sarah, she is pretty much uberleet (stole that word from Tiffer, it is sweet)
yes this is getting annoying! Everyone’s status on facebook:
studying all day…fml
in the library for the rest of the week…fml
3 papers to write…fml
try to write something more original people, this is getting old!
It’s so funny, how a couple of months ago I’d use fml in a text or on Twitter or whatever and people would ask, “what does “fml” mean?” Bwahahahaha and now it’s fucking taking over, naturally. Don’t fret too much everyone, it’ll be replaced soon with something even more trite and annoying! Oh, the joys of Internet lingo.
secured my first gig. consulting the project this week over coffee. knocking out a 2-3 page pdf marketing doc by the end of next week hopefully. man, shit is totally going to pile up on me. i just know it.
