time for a TEIL-BOOM tribute

who has better cousins than me? no one. don't even try to step!

the one whose name i forgot died

i found one of my three hermit crabs dead this morning. when i went to bed last night i checked on all three of them. they were totally all there playing around! however, i do have to admit, that i did see my original hermit crab, Phoenix, sitting right next to the little sick one when i turned the lights out. and that was somewhat unusual.

so, my brother had this theory that Phoenix was killing the other crabs that i was bringing home to be his friends. i was trying to prove my brother wrong because the two newer ones i got have been alive for a while. but, perhaps Phoenix was just waiting for this little one to be alone and away from his buddy... and then he attacked. i'd bettter go check on the remaining guy, Rocky.

koala joke

A koala is sitting up in a gum tree smoking a joint when a little lizard walks past and looks up and says "Hey Koala! What are you doing?"

The koala says: "Smoking a joint, come up and have some."

So the little lizard climbs up and sits next to the koala and they have a few joints. After a while the little lizard says his mouth is 'dry' and is going to get a drink from the river.

But the little lizard is so stoned that he leans too far over and falls into the river. A crocodile sees this and swims over to the little lizard and helps him to the side, then asks the little lizard: "What's the matter with you?"

The little lizard explains to the crocodile that he was sitting smoking a joint with the koala in the tree, got too stoned and then fell into the river while taking a drink. The crocodile says he has to check this out and walks into the rain forest, finds the tree where the koala is sitting finishing a joint, and he looks up and says: "Hey you!"

So the koala looks down at him and says: "Shiiiiiiiiiiit dude ... how much water did you drink?!!"

Word of the day - Wednesday

so, today's word is FLAKE. this word is NOT meant for any one person in particular today... i SWEAR! it's just a general mention of the concept and really meant for everyone, all of you, you know who you are, that just happen to be flaking right now. everyone has completely valid reasons for flaking of course... school, work, needing to clean, commuting struggles, dying their hair, whatever... and that is totally fine.

it's just that the stars have aligned in such a way that EVERYONE (super close friends along with some not-so-close friends even) have been flaking on me. i don't blame any of you individually and i'm not really that upset. you didn't know everyone else was flaking on me too! it's ok. a girl's allowed to bitch every now and again.

how many times in one day can a person say "it's ok, things come up, i totally understand. don't worry about it." well, i have officially decided that 4 times in 24 hours is my maximum.

and after reviewing the true definition of flake, i am reminded yet again how much slang i use every day that i don't even realize is slang.

darn san diego... it sets this standard where other regional language puts a harsh on my mellow!

it's over... well, season two that is

so, season two of the best show ever ended today. i actually didn't start crying until about an hour and twenty minutes into it... which is good for me. but let me tell you, it was probably a good thing i was watching alone because by the end i was crying so hard i was making little noises. oh shit, i just told on myself! why do i always do that?

Word of the day - Monday

ok, fine, so if something is about to fall off the edge of the table, i guess you could say it's precarious!

furniture move

i forgot to post last weekend about my furniture move! every once and a while i channel the energy of my step-mom who loves to move furniture around spontaneously (usually she does it in the middle of the night), and i woke up in the morning with an urge, a vision, of a new arrangement! you like?

WARNING: don't lick your cell phone

i had an intimate moment with my cell phone tonight. i was talking on it while eating a burrito for dinner and the phone leaped! it landed right into a pile of guacamole. i yelled into the phone, "i have to call you back, there was a phone incident," and then i proceeded to lick the guac off my phone ever so gently... until it ZAPPED me and VIBRATED! yikes!

ok, so, mental note... use a wet paper towel to clean off your cell phone, not your tounge.

for people who love t-shirts, like me!

my friend Julian told me about a cool t-shirt website called threadless. there are some sweet original t-shirts on there. the image below is one example that i loved. i just may have to order one...

i hate it when they tell you it will snow and then it doesn't

What happens when you predict snow but don't get any?

There was a female news anchor that, the day after it was supposed to have snowed and didn't, turned to the weatherman and asked:

"So Bob, where's that 8 inches you promised me last night?" Not only did HE have to leave the set, but half the crew did too because they were laughing so hard!

how many times can someone call AAA in 24 hours?

well, it depends on how successful you are at rolling your car down the hill and trying to pop the clutch after visiting puppies and kitties.

highlight of the evening

so after a successful women's chorus concert in the afternoon, dinner at Umbria downtown with friends, drinks and arm wrestling at Zeitgeist, you would think my "highlight of the night" would have happened already. however, i definitely think it happened when the muni steps wouldn't lower and dave and i had to jump out of the open doors on west portal avenue just to get off the train!

Quote of the night - Cinco de Mayo!

"Sorry, I was distracted. Oh, what, was it my shirt?"

Happy birthday Twan!

I just learned that it's Twan's birthday! YAY! Here are a couple of silly pics of him from his recent bay area visit... always doing what he knows best! :)

may this tree bring peaceful feelings to you

some people have been known to call this tree the "perfect tree". what do you think? it does in fact look pretty darn perfect.

Today is Advising Day!

Why an advising day you ask? one might think it is to honor advisors, such as myself, however that is not what advising day is.

i happen to think that "every day is advising day" but SFSU likes to make one special day each semester where classes are cancelled and students are expected to come to campus solely for advising. ultimately, however, most students interpret this day as an extra day off for things such as sleeping in or sailing.

it can be good at night too.

hahahaha... get your minds out of the gutter. i went to the Morningwood concert tonight at Slims. it was AWESOME! you should check out some of their music if you haven't already.

the lead singer is this crazy girl who sings a song called "take off your clothes". i had heard rumors that she brought an audience member up on stage and made them strip... and it was true! lucky me, tonight she picked a guy.

Happy May 1st AND...

Happy Birthday to our favorite captain John!
