casey and jo jo - crazy (ya I went there.)

Today it dawned on me that, out of all the songs in the world, I always choose the ones that I don't know the lyrics to when singing in the shower.

made my day

The other day I was at work (retail one) and a family with two little kids came in. I love when parents bring their children into the store because I just chat with them, and no one can really say, "Uh Rakhee, please stop charming that kid and help this woman find an overpriced t-shirt that matches her skin tone."
You'd just sound like the grinch, yah know?

So anyways this kid was looking in the mirror practicing his Taekwondo
, and I said, "Hey, you in Taekwondo?"
"Yeah I was in it too, but when I was younger, not anymore."
"What belt did you get up to?"
"I think I was at blue belt, I did it for a while. What belt are you?"
"Yellow belt! And I have a stripe!"
"Wow that's really good, what do you do for your exam? Have you seen anyone
kick through a plank of wood yet?
" (when I was younger, this feat haunted me)
"Nope, but I have to do front kick, side kick, back kick and ass kick"
"Sorry what? Which kick?"
"Ass kick"
At this point, his father laughing, interjects, "He's not so great with pronouncing that last one, bud its axe kick"
"YEAH that what I said, ass kick!"

first one in four years

Thursday evening, around 11:00pm, I decided to quickly check my email before hitting the sack. I turned on my computer and waited. And waited. It was taking longer than usual for Mr. HP to get going. The internet took ages to load, and I was about to turn the computer off and call it a night, when I was greeted by a spyware program that popped up. It told me that I had a million infections on my computer and I began to cringe knowing this pop up was a virus.

I tried to run my actual spyware and virus checker, hoping I could delete this virus myself (ha-ha), but quickly realized it wasn't going to work. As I closed boxes and tabs, trying to turn off the computer, I saw that my background desktop picture had changed. No longer was there a picture of a pretty yellow windowsill with flowers and vines draping out that I had taken in Cuba. No, it had been replaced by a blue background of 010101010010101010010101010100101's (that's computer language I presume) and a nice little message that said:


I was shocked that this virus has gone so far -gotten so personal-as to tell me to warn my children and wife. Despite not having a wife or children, I felt like I was being watched and immediately snapped the laptop shut.

why excessive twittering bothers me.

Have you ever been to a music concert where the person next to you takes a million pics on their point n shoot camera and then proceeds to go through the pics and delete the ones that don't work? And after they've done that, they continue to take pics? I have.

And I say, sure, take a couple pics. Thats normal I guess. You want to hold on to a memory, or share with the world where you were and what exciting things you are doing, connect with people, or maybe make them jealous. Its a facebook thing. But jeez louise, don't do it to the point where you are so consumed with snapping shots that you forget to actually enjoy the music.

Excessive tweeters remind me of these camera happy people. Instead of enjoying life, they are more concerned with documenting every moment of it for the cyber abyss, and for what reason, I do not know.

I don't know why everyone wants a Kindel for Christmas. What about REAL books. I hope those never go out of style. Real books mean something. You can write notes in them, highlight them, fold pages. They smell wonderful...and you know how far you've gotten in the book. Whenever I'm reading a really good book and I can see that there are only a few pages left till its over, I get exciting.. I wonder what will happen next, how it will end...I read quickly, eager to know what is coming, but after a page, slow down because I don't want the book to end! YOU don't get that with an E-book.

Thursday's day off

I look around my room and wonder where I should start my massive clean up.
Clothes on the floor?
Dresser with hair clips, earrings, necklaces and other miscellaneous crap?
Desk with papers, receipts, envelopes and art supplies but no art?
Maybe that box full of junk from my move back home in the summer...yes I still haven't gotten around to finding a place for it.
Finally I decide, its best to start off on a positive note. I go downstairs, grab a bowl of jello, click channel 100 and settle on the episode of Glee I missed on Tuesday. Hopefully today will be a productive day...

In other news - my play is ending this Saturday. Not sure what I will do now without it... Its been the only thing keeping me together this past couple months! Yikes
