funk soul brother right about now

Tonight is the Grad School Prom, which boasts a buffet, an open bar and cakes. The boy and I will be attending.

I am hoping that the prom will erupt into a frenzy of synchronized dance. Similar to the "Oh my God we all know the dance to this song" sequence found in She's All That.

a special thanks to fark for pointing this one out. please note step 20

penndot does not like me

My friend Jen stayed on my couch last night and had the pleasure of waking up at 7am to what she deemed "a symphony of construction."

To the left of my apartment building is a major road which has been blocked off into two lanes. At this site, the construction workers like to back their trucks up a lot so that they make that horrible beeping noise. I can now match the pitch of a truck backing up.

To the right of my apartment building is another construction site where the workers like to dig a big hole every Friday. They start digging the hole around 7am and by 5pm they cover the hole up again. They freaking love digging holes on Fridays. I haven't actually seen them put anything in the hole or take anything out of it. They just like to do it. And lucky for me, the big hole makes it impossible to get my car out of the parking lot and escape.

Next to the big hole is the renovation of a house. Those construction dudes just like to hammer things. I don't mind them as much. I just hate it when they play Foghat.

Generally I wouldn't mind the construction, but I'm fucking tired people. I'm exhausted. and a bit hungover.. and they keep backing their trucks up... and digging... and hammering... and using that big saw thing

In today's episode of 90210, David Silver was filming a music video and Donna saves the day by starring in it!

I was having a fairly boring/bland day, but then I saw Tori Spelling gyrating in fishnets. The day is now, officially, awesome.

the little song that goes with the video is definitely stuck in my head.

yes yes yes YES!!

pocket symphony

The new Air album Pocket Symphony is good. It's really good. I was just listening to it in my car, and it is an excellent night driving album. I am also finding it to be a good studying album, and I bet it will be a good sleepytime album as well. The possibilities are endless.

Air will be in
Philly on May 8
DC on May 9
NYC May 10

I may have to attend one of these dates. Although I'm not really sure what the live act would be like. I've never seen them. I imagine it might get boring. Has anyone seen them live? Tell me what to do.

fake plastic love.

there's this whole concept of
deserving more
needing more
a plateau of inadequacy

punishment that goes both ways
arguing for a truth that
be a lie

expiration dates
spoiled milk
throw it or keep it
freeze time before it curdles

setting the bar for the future
it's not black and white
if gray didn't exist,
we'd all die of broken hearts

I definitely have a thing for Kal Penn and really want to see the move The Namesake. However, it isn't playing ANYWHERE near here. pittsburgh theaters are lacking in decent movies.

but i guess i'll just put in harold and kumar, make kal penn my screen saver and call it a day.

kids say the darndest things

today my father told me a hilarious story from my childhood.

let me preface this by saying that i spent a great deal of my childhood hanging out with my grandfather. my grandfather, my papou, was a great man. he had a ridiculous sense of humor that both my brother and i inherited. he also hated cats.

apparently i once told my first grade teacher that my papou liked to bury cats in the backyard up to their heads, and then mow the lawn. my parents got a call from the school that day.

of course, my papou never did this. but he did make jokes about it. and clearly, i was not aware that people actually liked cats.

random musing brought on by insomnia

my old roommate and i used to have a perpetual debate on what our lives would be if we were really good looking. oftentimes we'd come home from the bar and drunkenly debate this topic until one of us eventually passed out. my argument was that our lives would be infinitely better, while she was convinced that our lives would be "boring" because everything would "come so easily."

what always struck me about my old roommate was her worldview. things were either "boring" or "fun." there was nothing in between. even in our never ending argument regarding what life would be like as a hot chick, she still saw things as either "fun" or "boring". this worldview eventually ended our friendship, as law school made me "boring."

boring or not, i still wish i was Giselle

dear myspace,

i think that you might possibly be the devil. i check you compulsively and can't really stop. i feel all warm and fuzzy inside when i get comments and sometimes find your "message" feature easier than email. there's a lot about you that i like, myspace. but sometimes you suck. sometimes i regret logging in and browsing. and sometimes i find things that i really don't want to know about. your features bring out the stalker in people. (and not just the stalker in me, but the general stalker in everyone.) i appreciate your enjoyable features, but perhaps we should take some time away from each other. some space might be good.
