I am your Slice of Life

Thursday, June 30th, 2005

Marci had a cool idea…well, actually, it was John Waters’ cool idea, but I learned about it from Marci. The concept is to just photograph slice-of-life stuff from around your house. No artful composition, no tasteful lighting. Just stuff, in it’s real setting. Show your results. Here are mine:

That is So Gay

Wednesday, June 29th, 2005

The other day, Loup and I were chatting about how marketers are finally catching on to the ‘Gay Demographic’, and how similar in many ways the childfree demographic is to the gay demographic. Here’s my proof. I’m so gay, this ad has been sitting on my desk for a week, waiting for me to find […]

Hot! In a Good Way

Wednesday, June 29th, 2005

Been updating the Hotties Gallery a little. Now you may peruse new pics of Newbie Hottie Cillian Murphy, Boromir’s Lil’ Brother Hottie David Wenham, and one new Diego wallpaper because, well, you can never have too many of those.

Still Sharp

Tuesday, June 28th, 2005

Joe Jackson songs always remind me of Johnnie; they both have that edgy, whip-smart, 80′s man thing going. Anyway, in Say Anything Lloyd once said, “I’m looking for a dare-to-be-great opportunity.” John Cusack has been daring to be great for many years now. And I love him for it! Here’s to you, JC.

Hot! In a Bad Way.

Monday, June 27th, 2005

Such was my weekend. Sweltery, sticky, sweaty, nasty. Can’t sleep because it’s too hot. Turn on the AC, then can’t sleep because it sounds like someone is idling a tractor in my bedroom. And the humidity makes my face break out like a 13-yr olds. Blargh. We had plans to finally fix up our ugly, […]

You Can Quote Me on That

Sunday, June 26th, 2005

That Damn Loup and her post about movie quotes made it so that I couldn’t get a damned thing done on Thursday! All I could do was sit around and try to think of what my favorite movie quotes are. Heh. I was surprised at how many I came up with…so many, in fact, that […]

Only Good Neighbors Move

Friday, June 24th, 2005

You all know that my house is flanked on one side by The Crack House, and the Frat House on the other. Behind me, there’s an older lady named Ann who I’ve seen maybe twice and who’s never said a word to me. That’s cool with me. Behind her lives another older lady named Carol, […]

Loup Steps Up to the Mic

Thursday, June 23rd, 2005

And asks me these interview questions. I’ll try not to jump around on the couch and act like a mental case. 1. ) What do you think of podcasting? Would you ever create your own? Podcasting is all well and good, but I personally would rather read than listen, so I hope they don’t replace […]

Pass the CrackTV Pipe

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2005

Finally! The next installment of DALLAS DVDs is hitting the shelves on August 9. Can’t wait! I need a serious Ewing fix. But damn Netflix doesn’t have it listed yet…gaah! This upcoming season is so great, though, I may be tempted to just buy it. It contains the collosal “Who Shot JR?” episode, and some […]

Wherefore Art Thou, Mayo?

Tuesday, June 21st, 2005

Has anybody seen my mayo? French’s “Gourmayo” comes in a lot of good flavors, but my favorite is the Chipotle. (The Wasabi is also very nice.) But lately I can’t find it at my local area monopolistic grocery chain. They have all the other flavors, but no Chipotle. What gives? It’s still on French’s website, […]

Holy Guano, Batman!

Monday, June 20th, 2005

Well, we finally got around to seeing Batman Begins. I’d wanted to try to see it in IMAX up in Toronto, but BW didn’t want to shell out the $$ for it. Since he’s the Bat-freak, I figured it was his call. Anyway, I have no idea what to write, as my feelings about this […]

Basil, Belated

Saturday, June 18th, 2005

Speaking of hottie Englishmen with big noses…. I forgot about Basil Rathbone’s birthday while I was in Toronto! I feel so bad. This post should have been on June 13. Sorry, Basil-babe. It won’t happen again. Suave. Smart. Sword-wielding. Happy Birthday to hottie Basil Rathbone! Basil is best known for two things: playing Sherlock Holmes […]

Suck it up, Frogboy!

Saturday, June 18th, 2005

Back from Canada. I’ll have the rest of my pics up next week sometime after I get them organized. Meanwhile, today it’s time to get busy celebrating WATERLOO DAY. On this very date in 1815, my historical hottie the Duke of Wellington whupped Napoleon’s fascist, megalomaniac, smelly French ass at the battle of Waterloo! Huzzah! […]

A Little Cult’cha

Thursday, June 16th, 2005

Picture of yesterday So it was sorta rainy yesterday and we decided to do indoor activities. We went to the Royal Ontario Museum and then the Art Gallery of Ontario. Both of them are in the middle of construction/expansion projects that are going to make them look really ugly when all is said and done. […]

Another day, another pic

Tuesday, June 14th, 2005

Picture of the day: Yeah, we went to the Toronto Zoo today. Damn, was it huge! We must have walked 25 miles today in the sweltering Canadian heat. (Seriously, it got up to 95 today. So although the zoo was really, really nice, at times it felt a bit like the Bataan Death March.) I […]

My Friend Feta

Monday, June 13th, 2005

Picture of the day… My lunch. On the right, stuffed grape leaves in a scrumptious sauce. On the left, “feta fries.” Thinly sliced potatoes, fried until light and crispy, topped with lovely feta cheese, then stuck under a broiler a bit until the cheese is all melty and the potato chips are even crispier and […]

Good News…

Sunday, June 12th, 2005

and Bad News… From our trip. The bad news is, last night at around 11:30, Rachel went into the bathroom in our suite and locked the door as just an unthinking reflex action, but the lock was broken and she got locked in and we couldn’t get her out! We had to call the front […]

Canada Welcomes You

Saturday, June 11th, 2005

The three things that, if you see them, you know you’re in Canada: 3. Shopper’s Drug Mart 2. The Beer Store 1. Tim Horton’s Yes, here we are in the land of the free and the home of the donut. The trip was uneventful, but I found out that net access in the hotel ISN’T […]

Sharing is Caring

Thursday, June 9th, 2005

And to show just how much I care, I’m going to share with you my new favorite websites: Go Fug Yourself Hysterically funny celebrity-dissing site that picks on the ugliest of celeb fashion atrocities and shows no mercy. It’s petty, it’s mean-spirited, it’s shallow, and that is why it rules. Defamer Very well-informed gossip site […]

Countdown to Canada

Wednesday, June 8th, 2005

On Saturday morning, BW and I leave for 6 days in beautiful Toronto, CAN! I am so stoked! Yeah, I was just there in Sept., but I dont’ care. For me it’s easier to get all psyched up about a trip to someplace I’ve been to (and liked), because you know what cool things you […]
