Sing Sing Sing


Me lookin' hot. This is a pic I sent to my Grandma of me all dressed up to go swing dancing a couple weekends ago. My grandma grew up in the swing era so she loves that I go once in a while. Since she is in NY and could't actually see me off, we sent her this pic. I like the pic so I decided to share it with all of you.

Marvin the Paranoid Android

DON'T PANIC

Can I just say how excited I am for the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy movie coming out in May. I'm a big fan of the books and from what I've read about it, the movie is going to be grand. Douglas Adams himself did most of the screenplay. It's not going to follow the plot of the books exactly, but that's to be expected to a point. I mean, the tv show didn't follow the books which didn't follow the radio show which was how it all started. And Alan Rickman (think professor Snape/Dr Lazaurus) could not be more perfect for the voice of Marvin. The only thing I don't like of the pre-release crap I've seen is Marvin himself. He's played by Willow in a costume (fine) but he's ROUND!! Marvin is supposed to be rather square and boxy. He ought to have a bucket head so that Zaphod and Ford etc can call him "bucket head." Besides, circles are funny and Marvin is not funny (ok, he's hillarious), he's depressed and cynical and crabby.

Another Random Thought

Whenever life gets you down, mrs brown, and things are hard or tough, and people are stupid obnoxious or daft and you feel that you've had quite enough....
Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving and revolving at 900 miles an hour, that's orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power...
_Galaxy Song by Eric Idle

Full Moon

Last night I had an adventure. I went snowshoeing by moonlight with my cynical-ex-boyfriend, Todd. It's amazing how much easier it is to breathe outside of the dredge that is filling the Salt Lake valley- once we got out of the smog, it was really a very clear night. If you (whoever reads this) have never experienced snow in the moonlight, it is something both beautiful and eerie. It sparkles purple and everything is heavily silent. I highly recommend it.

Stairway to Heaven

The other night I was evesdropping (people have interesting conversations and the guy was talking really loud) on a conversation about a chick who makes coffins for a living. How morbid. I think if I, for some bizzare reason, did that I would have to invent an entire character to go with it. I would become someone eccentric and odd. I would wear only blue (not black because that would be too obvious). I would never quite look people in the eye when I talked to them, I'd stare at their left ear or something instead. I would speak very softly and and not very often and what I would say would be really abstract and metaphorical. People would be totally creeped out by me but they would then think to themselves: "Well she makes coffins, that has to effect a person after a while. Poor girl, she's too young and pretty to be this crazy."

Everybody's Working for the Weekend

My weekend was wasted doing inventory at the toy store that is my place of employment. Saturday I was there from 8 to 8 counting little Schleich animals and books and bouncey balls. Today I was there from 8 to 3:30 countingn more books and then some more books and then videos. It was a blast, let me tell you. The best part is that I didn't get to spend any time with my peeps because I had to, you know, sleep when I wasn't at work. Sat night I did go to dinner with a couple friends but I was home by 11. Does this mean I'm getting old and responsible? Not bloody likely.

Second Star on the Right

So today, I saw Jessica Brownlee... Wait, I should change her name to protect the innoccent or something... I mean I saw Jennifer Bennet. Yeah, didn't talk to her or anything, not sure what I would have said. For those who don't know (most people) "Jennifer" was a very good friend of mine up from seventh grade until our Jr(ish) year of high school. Turns out though that she is a backstabbing, cold-hearted, self-serving, bitch. She fucked me over a few times before I decided that I would be so much better off without her. And since I haven't seen hide nor hair of her in over a year, I'm much happier. Anyway, I saw her in Subway. She was way ahead of me in line and I easily avoided her by staring at the menu as she walked past. This way I only had to experience the cold air of evil that hangs around her person for a few seconds. If I had talked to her, it would have suffocated me. It sounds like I'm holding a grudge, doesn't it? That's really not the case. I am at peace with myself and rarely spend a second thinking about her as it releases too much negative energy into my system. I just state things the way the are. Jessica... oh, I mean Jennifer is the worst person I have ever known. I aspire to be completely unlike her, she's my inspiration or something like that.

Moonbeams

I read an article the other day about lying and the internet. Apparently they're related. The jist of the article (I didn't really pay attention actually so I'm making this part up) is that using the internet makes it so you can't tell if someone is lying. The article also gave tips on how to tell if someone is lying. I can remember 2. One was that if they give a lot of details, it's probably a lie, the other was something to do with pronouns. So if I say to you "Cassie can't come to the gala you are throwing just for her, she has to experience the euphoria that the winter moon creates when his reflected photons shine on the craggy rocks of the mountain." It's obviously a lie because I used pronouns (her, she, his) and details. I also refferred to myself in the third person which is a bad sign in any case. Another big clue that the statement is dishonest: no one (as far as I know) is throwing a gala for me. I wouldn't expect anyone to really but if you have nothing better to do, I guess I could pull myself away from the moonlit rocks.

Shoot the Moon

So this is my blog. I've never done this before but I think I have just the right sort of personality for it. I'm not sure what to do with it, I'm thinking that I'll just add stuff when I think of it. Random thoughts, just like the title says. I guess the best place to start would be my personal motto of sorts: Everyone Knows Apples are Red. I'm rediculously smitten with that little phrase. I like it because it doesn't immediately make sense but it also is a great thought to live by. It kinda communicates the thought that what "everyone knows" is not necessarily true and that one should take everything with a grain of salt. Or at least that's how I interpret it. If anyone looks at this, I would love your thoughts on the subject.
