I’ve decided to blog again, but in a format that fits me. Shorter, and less pressure to wow you with entire paragraphs. Please check out my new blog at theeviltwin.tumblr.com. I will keep these blog archives active.
I have not abandoned wordpress completely, check out my other blog The Dairi Burger.
1. A college professor, who I was never really that close with. I’m weirded out. Does he really need to see my daily status updates about my ibs?
2. Someone from high school who I barely talked to then. Why the hell would I want to see pics of their bachelorette party in Atlantic City?
3. Someone I don’t know who perhaps knows me from reading my blog. Ok, it’s flattering, but since I have ognored it three times and they keep persisting, doncha think they could at least tell me who they are?
4. My neighbors. I kind of want to remain a mystery to them.
5. The executive director of my department at work. Uh, great to see he’s down with the young people, but do I really need the person who signs my paycheck to see the hundreds of pics of my cat?
I’m not sure what to think of American Virgin, a comic that I heard was really good. It seemed a little over the top for me. Although a good discussion of sexuality and religion. No doubt the drawing is awesome, but the dialogue is a little over the top. You know you’ve become a comic geek when you find some drawn characters very attractive. Zoinks!
Well, good news and bad news. The bad news is that I’ll have to take another lil hiatus; not like I’ve been posting a ton anyway. I imagine I’ll be back to regular posts in September.
The good news? I got a promotion at work. The job is totally different than the one I am currently doing, which several of you know that I was growing to resent. Now I’ll be mostly managing information and processes instead of people. The best part? I no longer am required to live where I work. That means I now have to find an apartment in the most expensive area of the country. It’s going to be a blast. But, at least I can live like a fucking adult.
I watched the first episode and thought I would hate it. The character of Hank Moody was a depressed, woman-hating asshole. However, as I watched it, I realized he was awesome. The writing is good, although not much happens, and the daughter is mega-annoying. Evan Handler and whoever plays his wife are pretty fantastic as well. Evan Handler’s talents were totally wasted in Sex and the City. I was totally into it right until the end when they pulled the biggest cliche EVER and it totally lost my respect.
Oh, and David Duchovny? DM!
So I’ve been watching the Travel Channel and expecially Passport to Great Weekends. It’s kind of dumb, I admit, but I do like the concept- experiencing a whole city in one weekend. And the ever-so-perky Samantha Brown usually does stuff that’s unique and not totally touristy.
She’s like Rachael Ray and Jessica Wakefield’s illegitamite love child. She struts around screaming “I’m so adorable” and flirts shamelessly with every guy she meets in every town. ANd they make it seem like she just happens to meet all the cool people in the city and they want to hang out with her. Um, perhaps it’s because she has a camera crew with her? And there always has to be a shopping-fashion montage with her modeling clothes. Ugh. But I like it anyway.
I finally feel like I can look forward to the Fourth of July. Usually whatever I do I don’t enjoy or I never really have good plans. I don’t even particularly like acknowledging the holiday, but luckily I am doing fabulous things. One is seeing Tron at the Castro theater, and for my brother’s sake, I am going to try to understand it. That night, a midnight showing of Showgirls with a pre-show by Peaches Christ. Finally, I have found an outlet for people who love (hate) that movie as much as I do. Bonus: Marty and Penny from the film will appear! Should I dress up like Nomi?
