I could've sworn I had updated sometime between now (end of August) and the time of my last post (end of July), but apparently I was very wrong.

I can only suppose that the reason for this long period incommunicado is the fact that the intervening days between then and now haven't seen much in the way of interesting occurrences. For the most...

Hey Cute One... How's your winter? Taking in lots of NHL? I'm such a fair weather fan... I'm a bit ashamed of the amount of interest I've lost in the Avs this year. It's just hard to go from having a team of mostly all all-stars to having a team of mostly 18 year olds. eeek
belllla:
I'm such a child. I can't forgive Theodore for Paris Hilton. And I know this makes me the weirdest Avs fan alive... but... I don't really dig Sakic. I know what you're thinking... "This girl knows nothing about hockey." But I promise you... that isn't it. I don't know why... I imagine I'm probably holding a grudge because we could've kept Peter with what we're paying Joe? And since Peter is always sooo healthy and doing sooo well with the Flyers... Lecroix should really start listening to me more... don't you think? tongue [/BLATANTSARCASM]

Remind me to show you my picture with Chris Drury someday. wink

So how are you holding up in that NY winter? From what I've heard, we've gotten more snow than you all have!! I'm over it. whatever

Are you still in school?

Hey, again.

Yesterday was the first Awkward Family Reunion I've ever experienced, and it wasn't as terrible as I expected. It took place in the Southern area of Erie county, where the tractors outnumber the people.

In the interest of being social and enjoying the nice weather (Quoth one of my uncles: "It's nice you decided to come out! I didn't...

ok, not enough people active in the UpstateSGNY Group for my liking so i'm going around letting people know that there are new members to the group who would feel more welcome if they actually got a few "welcomes."

also, i'm trying to get a darien lake event around for end of aug/beginning of sept possibly. check out the thread in the group for more info and let me know what you think.

I would have loved to splash around in the puddles with you! Being a grown up child is one of my favorite parts of my life. blush

I love rainy days. SO much. My AIM Away lately has been a Prince quote about just that. Damn! I really need to play in some puddles today. tongue

"VICES: Inappropriately joking around with people..." <-- I'm so guilty of the same... it's really not cute.

Wow- two blog entires unseparated by a fortnight; what is the world coming to?

My time as a coffee flunky has begun, and I suppose there's something impressive about my moving on to Liberal Arts Student Graduate School* before completing my undergrad degree. The store seems like a decent place, so I have high hopes at the moment.

The past few days have been...

For those of you that didn't hear the trumpet fanfare, I suppose it warrants mentioning that "I'm going to write another blog entry, now."

I'm going to post some pictures, because seeing Odyne put works up in her blog reminded me that I've been maintaining the silly charade that I'm going to post art for far too long; and really...

This weekend was a busy one, and I'm dead tired.

It follows, then, that being awake and soaking in the rays of the improvised tanning-booth that is my laptop at 4 A.M. is the most therapeutic use of my time.

This weekend was The Allentown Art Festival, and I hung around the tents treating them more as outdoor exhibits than actual places of...

I'm updating to the cacophonous orchestra of the low grumbling of an air-conditioner who's been forced into working overtime, a few birds outside my window, and a live recording of Radiohead's "Fake Plastic Trees" from their most recent concert in Boston.

I love that song.

The few songs off their next album that they've been teasing at their various live performances...

I have a t-shirt which says "Geeks Are Hot."

This time of year is one of relaxation and -- in my hometown of Buffalo -- biting your tongue when temperatures get too high, as you know that Old Man Winter is a bitter meteorological geriatric who would gladly deluge this humble city with the dread substance known as "snow" with little provocation.

Still, that fact didn't prevent me from trying to rouse the Sultan-of-Sleet with...

I just had to come in and say hello and thank you for all of your wonderful contributions to the threads (especially the music boards) smile

I'm not sure, exactly, what had suddenly rendered me epiphanically paralyzed a little while ago. Well, I know what; the why, however, is a total mystery.

Hey, an explanation!

I'm entering my senior year of college, and I'm absolutely terrified about that fact. This feeling (since passed) definitely has shades of the summer before my senior year of high school, which -- as...

This week has been the pinnacle of "uneventful".

I'm glad that people are beginning to unctuously flow back in from their respective schools- the distraction from the bitter reality of remaining without a job has been much appreciated.

Last night was well spent, though it definitely hammered-home the incontrovertible fact that I suck at Mario Kart. I'm terrible at most video games, but...

I am notoriously bad at Mario Kart. Famously bad, even. That said, I love that game like few others.

No doubt. Looking for the highest in cinematic experiences with anything from Marvel is just plain silly. I liked it. It had its flaws, but oh well.

So.

Summer has begun, and I now spend every day in an absolute vacuum of productivity. That's not to say I haven't been doing some reading, some art, and some vapid Internet usage here and there; it'd be a shame, though, if this stuff were to lose its luster, because I've got a good 4 months to go.

I can't...

totally random recommendation of the day:

if you liked "Ichi...", go rent Three Extremes
ninjatoes:
its 3 short vignettes by 3 different asian directors. its visually stunning, though its really not very graphic like a lot of movies of the genre (it'll still make your toes curl though)

So, I have a job interview today! That fact presented the wonderful opportunity for me to realize my cache of clothes suitable for interviews is pretty small. Always a positive.

I'm still reeling from my tremendous loss at "Dream-Phone" a few nights ago. I was positive -- certain! -- that my secret admirer was Matt; it was Alan. Once I heard the horrendously digitized voice lovingly...
