I just learned about someone who truly believes in remote viewers. Like, those folks that use thier psychic powers to spy on folks from afar. Im pretty sure this kids bullies were probably remote viewers - cause, cameras? Thats SO unlikely.

Ok I can see his point.

Ok I can see his point. Christina Hendricks must be superwoman to carry those boobs around all day. That shit would knock me over in bout two seconds.

” Look, I like big tits as much as the next guy, but this is a little intimidating, man. If this chick ever got naked in front of me, I’d be like a retarded kid looking at an algebra problem or a offensive lineman getting called for a false start. ” That would be Dave of I Don’t Like You In That Wayreferring to this picture. Freakin’ hilarious.

Come on skinny love, what happened here?

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

Saturday is my 28th birthday. That’s right, I’m now a mere two years from the big 3-0. I have gone through a couple of very short ‘what am I doing with my life’ periods in the past couple of weeks, but aside from the aforementioned dubious taste in men, I think I’m actually doing pretty well.  Therefore, my birthday is going to be a full week of celebration.  That’s right, an entire week – I personally am glad I was born and I believe my friends are too. And if they’re not, they better pretend.

Wednesday (i.e. today): Started invoking the ‘birthday princess rule’.  For those of you who aren’t familiar, the rule goes like this: I’m right and I get whatever I want. Simple, easy to follow. Also, had happy hour with some of my darling girls from my old place of work.

Mm hmm. I dont actually have one of these, but if I did Id put it on now and take it off next Tuesday.

Mm hmm. I don't actually have one of these, but if I did I'd put it on now and take it off next Tuesday.

Thursday: Dinner with friends from my new place of work.

Friday: Lunch with slightly less good friends from my new place of work.  There’s actually a story here, but it makes me sound bratty and as the birthday princess it’s my right to not tell it.  Although I kind want to…. ok, I’ll tell it.  First it was me and my good buddy. Then it was me and my good buddy and someone I didn’t know very well but who seems cool and likes sushi, which was our meal of choice.  Then it was those two and a guy on my team.  Then that guy opened his mouth and now there are like TEN people and one of them’s birthday is actually Friday!!! So not fair. He’s gonna steal my thunder. Unless of course I bring my birthday princess tiara.

Also, cutting out of work early (shhh, don’t tell) and then having a geniune old school sleepover. That’s right, my best friend since I was 12 and my newest darlin’ friend are coming over and there will be movies, manicures, champagne cocktails, and likely pillow fights in our underwear. No axe murderers though. I’m the birthday princess and I won’t allow it.

Ok, these are (obviously) Playboy bunnies. At least I think they are. I would have posted a pic of us but my friends didnt dig the idea of being photographed semi-nude. Neither did their husbands.

Saturday: Indoor skydiving with mom!!

Sunday: Brunch with father and father’s girlfriend. Champagne brunch. Bottomless champagne brunch. Yeah, that’s how I roll. She’s a psychologist prone to asking me questions that make me slightly uncomfortable, but champagne is going to make that quite a bit easier.  Picture this: “Emma, how do you feel about being 28 and single?” Me: “Well, ya know, it’s better this way cause nobody cares if I have indiscriminate sex with strangers. I can’t be tied down, man”.  

*I don’t actually have indiscriminate sex with strangers, just fyi. And now that I think about it, she’s big in the Boulder feminist community. She may congratulate me if I actually said that.

Monday: Open but I’m sure as hell gonna find something to fill in here…. OH! Lunch with Les! See, she’s a gov’t employee so she doesn’t have to work. Lucky. Aside from the ‘government worker’ part, of course.

Tuesday…. is this starting to seem a little ridiculous? Well, if I can push it this far I will. Otherwise, I’ll fold on Monday. Still, not a bad run.

Now would be when I’m going to talk about gifts, right? However, I have something very specific that I want to talk about on the gift front, and it definitely deserves a post all it’s own. Next time, folks. In the meantime, happy birthday to me. For my own personal gift, I’m going to get myself either an espresso machine or the Bon Iver album For Emma, Forever Ago. As far I as I know I never met the songwriter, but a girl can dream.

Kinda love it. Maybe not the most practical, but pretty is important too, right?

Things that would suck:
♠Being an aspiring actress and getting a lead role in a movie, only to discover after the movie is released that it inadvertantly offends a major religion that you personally have no problem with.
♣Sending a mass email to friends and family telling them about some interesting development in your life, but accidentally mistyping one address and it going to a local DJ, who proceeds to read your email on the radio and mock you.
♥Becoming a werewolf.
♦Falling in love with someone rich and getting married and purchasing a nice big house and a new car then discovering he’s actually a polygamist, then getting sued by his other wives for your house and car.
♠Confronting a friend of yours who you think is a compulsive gambler, telling her you know what she’s going through because you were there too, and then finding out that she’s actually a necrophiliac and thinks thats what you were talking about.
♣Accidentally kicking your phone while in the throes of passion and speed dialing your parents.This, in case anyone is wondering, is the only one that has happened to me and it was his parents, not mine. You know, his mom never warmed up to me….

Things that would be awesome:
♥Going on a diet and finding out that when your friends said you had a pretty face they weren’t lying, and becoming a famous model because of your gorgeous bone structure.
♦Going to the Humane Society and adopting an adorable puppy, then getting in the car with her and having her say ‘hi! thank you so much for taking me outta there, we’re going to have so much to talk about! but now, I have to pee’.
♠Getting arrested and tried for something you had nothing to do with, then being found innocent and getting two hundred thousand dollars for your pain and suffering and having lots of hilarious jail stories to tell for the rest of your life.
♣Being George Clooney’s bartender.
♥Being a werewolf and coming to terms with it, then falling in love and finding out your new boyfriend is also a werewolf and is completely up for some crazy werewolf lovemaking.
♦Struggling with your hypochondria and taking one last visit to your doc before going cold turkey, then finding out that you have a mysterious illness that is totally curable and will now be named after you, then being invited on many many talk shows to discuss the aforementioned illness.

Normal things that make me happy:
Vacation.
Strawberries and foxes.
White paint.
Robert B. Parker.
Recommendations.
Monkey slippers.

Well do you want to fall apart? I can't stop if you can't start

The Format are breaking up.
Is it just me, or does the fact that you will never hear a new song from your favorite band feel a little like knowing you won’t get to kiss the man you love ever again? Or finding out that you’re allergic to your favorite food?  Or hearing from your best friend that she’s joining the peace corps somewhere there are no phones?

this SUCKS.
