Beautiful May [10 May 2011|06:22pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

Holy crap we are having some nice weather here in MD these last few days! Maggie and I planted a little flower bed, and I am super pysched. Rob (my brother) gave me a begonia for mother's day and it perked right up from the pot when I put it in the ground. Pics to come.

On the whole, it's a different Momo in this skin from the one this winter. Socializing up the wazoo, strengthening the bonds created from the loss. One friend pressed the reset button and is starting over in New Orleans. Another's making a positive step and moving into a group house to be close to his son. This gal's got a newfound sense of confidence... I had truths revealed about myself that I can rely on when I'm feeling low. Good things about the person I am - despite my flaws. For a champion self-boxer it's like learning an unbeatable move.

Bunch of parties coming up... but I'm keeping Memorial Day open since it will officially be Pool Time. My birthday is coming right up, too, and I feel like doing something ridiculous. Any ideas welcome.

I don't really feel like writing right now, but I would appreciate it if you read the links.

I have a song in my head that I can hear in bits and pieces, like I'm recalling a concert I've already been to. I just want to sit down and hear it all the way through so I can put it down on paper and start refining it. I hope this update is the incantation to draw it out of me.

Oh, you creative process, you.

There's some kind of hostage situation at the Discovery building.

In light of the court case in MD over whether the police have the right to privacy on public streets, here's what happens when you film the police in Sweden.

such is life [16 Jun 2010|09:06pm]
drafts of lj entries dancing like sugar plums in my head

Instead, here are my ideas on a playboy shoot for the Most Honorable Lady Gaga. I bet she subverts it into the unsexiest playboy spread ever:
  • Wearing a bikini made of senior citizen pubic hair, posed like an Eqyptian standing on a runway. Her sunglasses/headdress are reminiscent of leathery testicles
  • Covered in a latex bodysuit with a print of my little ponies in a toy aisle at a store
  • Surrounded by mannequin parts in a garbage truck (hat tip: carla)
My mother begins most phone conversations these days with, "I know you're not on facebook, so I wanted to tell you..."

I just happened to have bought a gallon of milk and three loaves of bread on Tuesday, so I'm feeling very smug. Traffic in this part of the county is absolutely nuts this fine Friday. My poor sister's been in the car for an hour and a half fighting her way to Laurel from Hyattsville. She was in Beltsville when she called. So glad I am not fighting my way to the store and at the store for french bread supplies.

Also... Hi, everybody! I am so lame about updating, but I voraciously read all of your posts a few times a day. I have not defected to facebook. In fact, I'm not even on there, for tin-foil-hat reasons mostly. Well, entirely.

Life in Farringtonia is wonderful and busy. The tree is up and we'll probably finish decorating during Snowmaggedon this weekend.

Maggie is stupendous. She's as sweet and fun as ever.

I am good. Work has just reared its fiery head and it looks like I am going to be crazy busy through June at a minimum. I'm actually relishing the challenge, and it should be fun.

A few picsCollapse )

WTF? They make marshmellow treat (aka rice krispy treat) flavored microwave popcorn. And the amazon reviewers like it.

Did we go back to the 1950s when I wasn't looking? I guess that Doritos has been pushing the limit with random flavors, but all their shit tastes the same.

Yay! [23 Jul 2009|02:52pm]
So something we've been developing for months is finally live.

Meet the Jackass Facebook App.

Branden made a fecal dynamics engine to handle the fluids.

The best prank by far is screen sabotage. :)

what [24 Jun 2009|02:41pm]
In case some of you all haven't been following it, the governor of South Carolina, Mark Sanford (a presidential hopeful) went missing. His wife told the press he was taking a much needed break.

Well, they couldn't get a hold of him as of yesterday, then suddenly Sanford's press dude is saying that his boss is hiking the Appalachian Trail. Well, it turns out the dude was in fucking Argentina because he was having an affair.

The whole thing is bizarre.

crazy people [08 Jun 2009|02:15pm]
I saw three accidents this morning dropping Maggie off at school. One occurred in real time right next to me at a light. Everyone was stopped, the lady just ran into the dude in front of her instead of slowing down. Next was a motorcycle vs. suburban, the motorcyclist laying in the street with ambulances. The suburban driver looked freaked out. Third was another fender bender. This one was over to the side causing problems.

I've been driving extra cautiously since apparently people around here are unable to handle the responsibility of their metal death machines. I am probably unhelped by a vivid dream of seeing one of my friends decapitated by an unstable veteran. Ugh.

reminiscing [04 Jun 2009|03:13pm]
I have always had this perverse fascination with personal ads. I even managed to do a project on them in a class in college. Back before there was craigslist (or at least a DC-specfic craigslist) I would call up dj_ango on Sunday afternoons and go through the "Missed Connections" section of the Washington Post. I'd go down the list and ask her things like, "Hey, were you on the red line two weeks ago wearing a blue shirt?" or "Were you a black woman in a mazda miata in Alexandria?" She would calmly answer, "Nope," and I would move on to the next one. I think I was the one to giggle first, generally.

That phrase is totally amusing to me. It reminds me of that Violins - Violence - Silence sign in Baltimore.

Pride and Prejudice and Momo [07 May 2009|07:17pm]
[ mood | giddy ]

I heard about Pride and Prejudice and Zombies on metafilter and thus read the review at the AV Club when it caught my eye. Seems interesting, at least. I had never read Pride and Prejudice which I saw as a serious lacking in my education, and I read Jane Eyre because I wanted to read The Wide Sargasso Sea. Oh, and I enjoyed Wicked well enough. I bought an old fashioned-looking version from the bookstore (with a register and all) and I finished it this morning.

My ThoughtsCollapse )
Been doing a shit ton of reading lately. I also read through Harry Potter again. David got us a subscription to the New Yorker for Christmas, and I love all the good reading there. I think I am going to tackle The Grapes of Wrath next.

Holy Crap! [26 Mar 2009|04:46pm]
A train just hit a bus at the intersection by my house!

According to the cop I talked to, "It's not too serious." I can't see the bus since it is on the other side of the train, but it looks like it is in one piece... like the corners of each thing touched or something.

We'll see if they will let me out to go get Maggie!
