I'm super bored right now and the weather sucks, so it's blogging time. There's no topic today, just some of my incoherent ramblings which you've all come to know and love, or dread. Either/or.

I've been strangely hyper over the last week, like a crackwhore who's also on copious amounts of speed. I feel like every time I move around one of those montage music themes should be playing. Wouldn't it be sweet if I had my own theme song? I wonder what it would it be (quiet, you!).

Here's what I've been up to lately while you've all been waiting for me to post. Sorry! I'll be more frequent in the future. You can also check out my guest post on Lynnorra's blog, Thoughts of a Randomista.


-I dyed my hair black. Not because I'm going through some weird emo/goth phase, but because my hair is naturally really close to that anyway, and my Jew-fro was getting so out of control that it was in full ejaculatory mode. So I FINALLY got a trim, and decided to go full Dark Side while I was there (wow, that was my first sci-fi reference in almost two days. I should have stretched first). I'm also thinking of maybe adding some cool-looking highlights. Any color ideas?

BTW, I go to SuperCuts, because I'm a cheap-ass.

-My phone drama is, seemingly, finally over. I got my new Blackberry Curve from FedEx a few days ago and I love it. I loogied on my Droid and shipped it back. Suck it, Verizon. I hate you with the fire of a thousand suns. You fail at life.

-I did two entire loads of laundry. Let me preface this by saying I'm fucking OBSESSED with doing laundry. I'll even go so far as to say that it sometimes puts me "in the mood," if you get what I'm saying. Sometimes I'll put a load in (haha... "put a load in") when I don't even need to. My dad is laundry retarded so I usually stick his clothes in with mine, which I don't mind at all because hey, more for me. The best part about laundry is taking it out of the dryer when it's all warm, and you get to put the clothes in your lap when you fold them. Everyone always gives me weird looks when I tell them this stuff, and I've often caught people giving me strange looks and backing away from me.

I love doing housework in general. I was never into it until I moved away from my parents and was forced to clean up after myself, and then I discovered that doing dishes and vacuuming and sweeping and all that stuff was the shit. Sometimes I get asked by my guy friends why I'm still single. It's probably because I'm such a freak.

-I've been going to the gym a lot, which is great for me because I've also been stuffing my face. I went with T to The Cheesecake Factory the other day and OH MY GOD. Have you ever had their shit? Their tuxedo cheesecake is UNBELIEVABLE. Here's how they make it, and also an enticing photo:

I heard that if you share it, all the calories go away.
Speaking of T, it took us an hour and a half to find her car after dinner last week. Of course we checked every floor of the parking garage except for the one we were actually on. It's pretty hilarious now, and at least we walked off the calories (lie), but by the time we actually found her car we had to stand there for a full minute and stare at it to make sure it wasn't a mirage. She's definitely going to hate me for posting this.

-San Diego ComicCon is going on right now and I'm broke and vehicle-less, so I have to resort to obsessively checking Internet updates and finding my future ex-husband somewhere else. There's always something that prevents me from going to ComicCon- once I actually bought my ticket to the one in New York and then my grandma called an hour later to remind me that Passover was that weekend. Dammit, obligatory family love.

This year there are new panels for It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Glee, Archer and Sons of Anarchy. I have no idea what they have to do with comics, but I would go to all of those. Next year I swear to God I will walk there.

Also: Futurama! Is anyone else happier than Roman Polanski at an unsupervised daycare that this show is back? Because it is even funnier than it was last time.

-Other stuff I've been nerdily juiced up for in the coming week: the baseball trade deadline, NFL training camp, Project Runway (just like a real girl!), and SHARK WEEK! If you don't know what Shark Week is, start planning what you want on your tombstone now, because you should no longer be on this Earth. Then tune into the Discovery Channel on August 1st, or come back and read my blog, because I'll be posting all about it since I am a gigantic loser. Bonus: this year it's hosted by Craig Ferguson.

God, I'm sad.
-While Internet surfing I found out that The Hold Steady has a recent tune entitled "Hurricane J." Not only is it really good, but like, 2/3 of the guys I've been with have names that start with J, and most of these experiences can, in fact, be compared to something that will knock the wind out of you and metaphorically punch you in the crotch. Was this written about my dating life? This is unofficially my new favorite song.

-The activity I've been filling up the most of my time with is, of course, job hunting. I've filled out applications at what feels like everywhere in this entire fucking city. This is new territory for me because I've never worked retail- I went from the hospitality business to an office job to the marketing world. I'm still going for full-time work, but I'm also looking for something to tide me over until I get there. More on this ordeal later.

So anyway, there's all the crap you really didn't need (or care) to know about how I've been filling up my time. I'll be back in full blogging mode after this weekend, and if you really can't hold out, check out some of the stuff on my blogroll. These a-holes are much more reliable than I am.

Awesome post - I think comic-con would be equally awesome and scary.

Also - in regards to your shark week stuff - I touched a very small shark yesterday at the zoo.

That Ain't Kosher said...

That sounds wrong. Haha. But it sucks that your zoo photos disappeared!

SBG said...

lol that you like doing housework. 86 looking for jobs. it sucks!

Hahaha you are hilarious. For some reason, I LOVE vacuuming. Hearing the little "click, click" of all the dirt being sucked up is so gratifying. Glad I'm not the only weirdo who likes cleaning.

I have to admit I know exactly what you're talking about in reference to the warm laundry in your lap. I've rolled around in it...not in a creepy way. Wait..I guess there's no other way than creepy right?

Mind you it gets to -40 in the winter where I work and rolling around in warm, fuzzy, outdoor fresh softener smelling, laundry is orgasmic.

I totally agree! We should all form a support group. If they made a perfume called "laundry smell" I would wreck that shit.
