Album Covers - the Game

For those of you who don't know, there's this new game on the internets.

1 - Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “Random Article”
or click

The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to “Random quotations”
or click
The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photoshop/MS Paint or similar to put it all together.

5 - Share with all your friends!

I finally got around to doing it and here's mine. It came together so perfectly, I felt the sheer emo / post-punk - ness of it all. I think I need a sweater.

We'll be touring with Weezer and Death Cab and { insert nerdy math-rock band name here }

Where's your album cover at?


ED. Note: Photo credit goes to Flickr user ConfusedVision. Follow the links to her actual website. There's some cool stuff to be seen. Or just enjoy the Chuck Bass-iness of her subject in my photo. Yes - there's more!!!!

♥Valentine's Day♥...Huzzah!

♥Valentines Day♥. Definitley not a day I will forget any time soon. Honestly I can't remember the last guy that took me out on February 14th so how could I pass up such a charming offer from such a charming man?

The original plan was to stay in and watch movies. Everyone that I spoke with had a fantastic time as they stayed at home with a loved one. He asked if I wanted to go out. I said, "Sure it'll be fun."

So here we are. Valentines Night. I'm looking cute. He's looking oh so handsome. My ladies and gays are hot as ever. We are ready to do this! So, being the responsible person that I am, I ask my escort to make sure I don't drink. Why? Well because I had no sleep last night and I wanted to be safe. 1st spot we hit is the Masquerade.

The venue isn't packed...yet. We all know that Afterlife can get out of control and it's well on its way. Unfortunately we must be on our way to our next spot. We get to the car. I look around me and I pull out into the empty lot in front....SCREECH...thud! I look at my date and quickly realize the back end of my car is at an incline... OMG.....I drove off the retaining wall! My first thought is "crap" my second thought is " the back tires better be on the ground or else we are stuck!" So, instead of hopping out and assessing the damage, my dumb ass puts on the gas. ....SCREEEECH...thud! I look at my date again with a "Ok we're down and not stuck" look. I slowly pull forward and hear the most god awful sound... crap! Before I can react, he's out of the car checking things out. What's the damage? Broken tail pipe. It's dragging on the ground. I'm in shock...well, it's more embarrassment than shock...I can't believe I just drove off of a wall!... I stare at him while as he attempts to remove the newly created nuisance. Breathe...calm down... I look around and see wall, wall, trees, cars....crap, are we stuck?! I wander away looking...praying for an opening... Aha! We can fit through there for sure. My date has abandoned trying to remove the tailpipe (good job on securing that thing Saturn!) and joins me in looking for a way out. Through here! Yeah?..I'll guide you... I manage to squeeze through and we decide the best thing to do is go to the Kroger across the street...we'll duct tape this puppy up!

So. Here we are. Valentines Night. Driving infront of a packed club. Dragging a tail pipe.

There's something dragging on your car!

....I wave.. Yeah thanks, I know!

Hey! Your car has something dragging on it!

Yeah I know...thank you.

Gestures at me

I give a thumbs up and an ok...

Finally we get to Kroger. Get out, duct tape and jimmy rig this thing up.... success!

Well, needless to say that event certainly put a cloud on things...I tried to shake it off but I still felt like an idiot for doing what I did. We make it to Sloppy and to El Bar but sadly not to Broke & Boujee because I am crashing. Please, I know you really want to go but I'm emotionally and physically drained....can we go home? Sure babe. Whatever you want.

So the evening ends with us at home watching an animation classic....the original plan. What more can a girl ask for? Good company and a good movie. All is right with the world in my eyes

Love. Luck. Lollipops



Ohhh I love spending my afternoons on Craigslist

This is very disturbing....I stummbled across this under Casual Encounters personal ads on Craigslist....
Now don't get me wrong - there are MANY crazy postings but this one might just take the cake.
Check it out and see if you throw up in your mouth like I did...

Grocery List

Okay, so at work tonight, for some reason one of the Mexican cooks pulled a grocery list out of the trash that someone had thrown away and wanted an explanation what/why some of the things were on the list.  So here goes:

*Grocery List*
Sugar, Pizza, Fries, Lettuce, Paper Bags, Magic Markers, KY, Whipped Cream, Rat Poison, Eggplant, Water Balloons, Cucumbers, Flea Collar, Steel Reserve 211, Bean-o, Tic-Tacs, Razors, Choke Collar, Anal Beads (OMGWTF?!?!?)

Don't ask me why he pulled it out of the trash, but it must have been interesting looking to him.  He speaks almost perfect English but I'm sure that "Choke Collar" and "Anal Beads" are not too familiar with him - unless he's a homosexual.  I showed him the Rosary beads one of the other Mexicans was wearing and tried to explain what my thoughts were on that, even though I have never (and gladly) had any experiences with that sort of thing.  
I just thought I would share with you.

I Can't Believe It's Not Gutter!

I totally wasn't planning on bowling last night. I was planning on drinking some beers and cheering on the I Can't Believe It's Not Gutter team when I get a text from Jonathan asking me to step in for him tonight. At first I was a little upset because I wanted to talk to him about "Operation Cornification" and gauge how it went down in order to start properly planning Phase 2. I quickly got over it though. Then came the phone call from Jonathan. I guess he was trying to lock me into bowling for him. I wasn't really thinking about it. You know, bowling - no big deal. Until I remembered that I was wearing a skirt. Onisha was saying it shouldn't be a big deal. Yeah, no big deal.
So, we were up against a team named 3 Strikers and a G. One of those 3 strikers has had 2 close encounters with a perfect 300 game. No pressure. None whatsoever. Riiiiiiiiiight...
I started off fairly horribly - 3 gutterballs in a row. Ouch! No biggie, right? Solution: More beer. I guess I'm one of those bowlers who gets "better" as they drink more.
A couple of frames into the first (of 3 games), Tom commented on my technique. I was leaning forward TOO much and looked like I was going to fall over. Of course I laughed it off and tried to remain cool and collected. Well, Tom's little dream came true and I FELL. ZebrasOMGZebras!!!! I'm not sure if I flashed anyone in the process either. And naturally, it became the running joke. Hey, at least I was a good sport about it! (It was the beer). Now my knees hurt. :(
I did have fun though. We lasted 3 games. We lost 3 games but the exciting part was in the 3rd game which contained the favourite: Beer Frame. It's technically supposed to last 1 frame but we kept the scores tied for about 4 frames until finally, 3 Strikers and a G got thirsty and bought us a pitcher (even though I think we lost).
And it kept getting better. Afterwards, Tom and I took a visit to another establishment down the street: Pink Pony. We threw some dollar bills on stage and called it a night.
Alls I can say is that Jonathan AND Onisha missed out on some hilarious-ness. But I bet if Oni had bowled in place of me, we would have won.

LOLZebras Attack!

What's up with the Z at the end of LOL (lolz) or at the beginning of OMG (zomg)??
Urban Dictionary says this about LOLZ - which me and Onisha always wrote LOLZebra because it never made sense. And, apparently, we were right on track. It also says this about ZOMG - which I (will start) writing OMGZebra. But in "Internet Speak", it would read OMGZ. Would that imply that I'm trying to say Oh My Gods, Zebras? Because that would make me Polytheistic here in the Bible Belt. Who knows. But if you read it out loud - in the way of Luh Mao - it reads like Ohm-Jizz, which could be Ohm Jizz my pants.
That's almost up there with, "Hey baby, wanna check out my stimulus package?"

I'm just sayin'...
