What's Behind Door Number 3?

A neeeeeeeeew joooooob!!

I'm very excited. I have just accepted (as of this past Tuesday) a new job!! I can't wait! I will have to commute to St. Paul with the masses, but it'll be worth it. Extremely worth it.

Yesterday I turned in my resignation at my current employer. The wheels of change are turning, and I like it! I realized that I had never actually quit a job before. All my previous jobs were with the understanding that I would be leaving at the end of the summer, or when I graduated from school. My first job, gave me a lot of my employment firsts. I asked for raises, I received my first Christmas bonuses, I had to settle an office dispute, I received a promotion, I moved departments within a company, and I quit. Well, I guess I had asked for a raise once before back in middle school for babysitting... but I never received a W2 for that.

Despite all my firsts, I had to use all self restraint from dancing down the halls and yelling "see ya' sucka's!". However no one can predict what might happen on my final day. ;-)

My Space or No Space

I'm talking to yet another friend who is obsessed with myspace. What is all the hype about this site? I've tried to "check it out", and I'm overwhelmed and feel completely computer illiterate. So tonight I figured if I just signed up with the darn online cult that I could figure it out that way.

So, after I'm done filling out my age, height, weight, favorite color, mother's maiden name, father's first pet, my worst grade, shoe size, and the color of my
pantaloons, I finally come to the exciting clickable "sign me up" box. Whew! It's about time! My fingers have been typed down to the nubs and my eyes are now blind from the glow of the screen.

I click the stupid box, and what do I see? The data you have entered indicates you are not eligible to register on myspace.
What the *$&%?!?! How can I not be eligible to register? Did my nail polish color offend them? Did they not like the name I chose for my unborn child? What could I have filled in on that form that would possibly deem me ineligible?

Stupid myspace.

Locks Of Love Or Terrible Tresses?

Today's the day. I'm spending a small fortune on my stick straight hair, to make it curly. I'm terrified. It could be disastrous. I could be left like Sexy Cleopatra from Goldmember, and without a penny to my name. Hopefully it will turn out like this: You know, only without the red...

But I figure if Sandra Oh can do it, darn it! so can I!

The Truffle Shuffle

I just had the best 2 hours of my life!! I went to go see Goonies on the UltraScreen. They're showing one "old" movie a month on one day at one time. Last month it was Indiana Jones, and this month it was Goonies!!!

This movie was one of my favorite movies when I was a kid. Oh, who am I kidding? It's still one of my favorite movies. I hadn't seen Goonies in probably 10 years. What a dark time that was. Tonight the black cloud was lifted. I had 114 minutes of pure enjoyment.

It's funny how you remember certain things about the movie when you watched it as a kid, and then when you finally see it again, it's like a whole new movie. I was not the biggest Goonies fan in the audience, and I'm for sure not the biggest fan in the world, but some people are.... and those people post in Wikipedia. The write about the Truffle Shuffle. Oh yes, the Truffle Shuffle.
So to leave you as I blissfully slumber (it was an 8 o'clock start time! Far to late for this bag of bones!), I will leave with you with some quotes from Goonies.

the Fratellis are interrogating Chunk]
Francis Fratelli: Tell us everything! Everything!
Chunk: Everything. OK! I'll talk! In third grade, I cheated on my history exam. In fourth grade, I stole my uncle Max's toupee and I glued it on my face when I was Moses in my Hebrew School play. In fifth grade, I knocked my sister Edie down the stairs and I blamed it on the dog... When my mom sent me to the summer camp for fat kids and then they served lunch I got nuts and I pigged out and they kicked me out... But the worst thing I ever done - I mixed a pot of fake puke at home and then I went to this movie theater, hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony and then, t-t-then, I made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa - and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. I never felt so bad in my entire life.
Jake Fratelli: I'm beginning to like this kid, Ma!
Mama Fratelli: [tired of Chunk's stalling] Hit puree!


Brandon Walsh: I'm gonna hit you so hard that when you wake up your clothes will be out of style!


Chunk: [Data comes flying into the house knocking over everyone and Chunk grabs the statue of Michaelangelo's David] Hey! I bet you guys think I was going to drop it huh? But you wouldn't expect that from good ol Chunk [Places the statue on the table and it falls off]
Brandon Walsh: You Idiot!
Mikey: Oh my god! [runs over and picks up the statue]
Chunk: Look look! It's not broken. It's perfect! Ha ha!
Mikey: [sees that the statue's penis has broken off] Oh my GOD! That's my mom's most favorite piece! [tries to put it back on]
Chunk: Oh my god.
Mouth: You wouldn't be here if it wasn't.
Mikey: Shut up Mouth!
Brandon Walsh: Shut up Mouth.

Sloth : Hey, you guys!

Votes For All!

I'm at Vocal Essence rehearsal making the typical last minute phone call to my mom.

"You want to come to the Christmas concert?"

"Of course. What are the dates?"

"Um, December, but I gotta know right now ma, I have to go, and it's due today."

"But your dad's out of town, and I don't know if he'll be in.."

"Ma, I'll just get you 4 tickets, I gotta go. Oh, but did you vote?"

"No, but I still might, because all the good ones are left."

"It's kind of late, you only have like 20 minutes left."

"Well, I might later, because that Mario is so cute."

"Mom! Are you talking about voting for Dancing With The Stars? I meant the election!"

"Oh yeah, already went. Mario's on."


Hahaha, that's my mom. I love her.

Who Will Buy This Beautiful Morning

What a beautiful morning! (And I say this without even a glance outside.) But the various clips running through my head from Oliver, Oklahoma, and Annie Get Your Gun, tell me it's a great day. It's just a great morning, because I got to sleep in!! You don't know what a change that is for me. To actually be able to have time to sleep?!?! Impossible you say! You've never seen a chicken with their head cut off sleep in? Well folks, today is your lucky day! I have officially slept in, and it's grand. Ah,the simple pleasures in life.

I'm Back In Business

How could it be, that I've gone without posting for so long?

I've missed you all, my dear, dear friends... or random people who apparently get led here by way of an image search for Depends. In any case, I'm back, and ready to rock.

I finally have internet in my home, as of today. So many sites have been blocked at work, I felt like I was in a cold dark abyss without a hint of light. Or it could have just been because I've been swamped at work, and I work in a little cube inside a bomb shelter with only one window....

In any case, now that I have a connection to the outside world other than my trek to and from work, rehearsal, and performances, I can blog at will. And blog I will!
