I was at Target today working, and they were giving me crap. My co-worker thinks one of the other employees was hitting on me (she totally wasn't), and she's been telling people about how funny she thinks it is. Well, anyway, my immediate superior comes up to me, and he's patting me on the back, and he's razzing me, and he says, "C'mon, playa! What's up? I didn't know you had such game." And I respond, (in my most faux-cocky badazz ebonics...which is extremely bad) "Sheeeeeeeeeeeet! I got so much game, they be callin' me Milton Bradley!" Such peals of laughter have never been heard at Target before, and possibly never again! :)

I think I made the situation worse, but I had one of my rare funny moments, and I had to do it!!

I have to get up early! Gotta go. OH! Song of the day...two songs today, because it's a holiday.

1) Black No. 1 by Type O Negative. Such fake goth vampiric metal goodness is most appropriate for Halloween. Plus, I am still scarred from being forced to see the Playgirl pictorial of Peter Steele. :( And, having just now read the Wikipedia entry, good old Peter has converted to Christianity. OK, right there, either the world is soon to end, or Wikipedia is wrong. That's gotta be misinformation!

2) Stutter by Elastica. After having chose my birthday band to enter Rock Block, I found the cd in my collection. Oh my God, I forgot about these lovely ladies! (OK, the drummer's a dude, but he contributes nothing but drums and puke noises) If no one else takes them by next September, they're in! This is an awesome song. I love Elastica. I totally miss them. The Menace was such a bad album. If you want to hear good Elastica, stick with the self-titled first album. Oh! So nice!

Things I Learned From the People's Choice Awards 2018

27-VIII-2007 or Where Is My Mind?

Waaaaaaaaaay out in the water see it swimming I think I'm not going to get this R5 card in the recent auction, but I can't help putting all my R$ into it! Hopefully everyone will put the big money into The Who, and I will steal it, but... :( I am woefully lacking in R$. Go »

13-X-2006 or Yeah, yeah, yeah I know what day it is.
