You’re a punk rock mommy! DIY is probably your motto, because you’re a punk mama at heart. Your [future] kids are getting your independent spirit and guts, and learning to solve problems themselves. You love it when they show their independence, even when it’s breaking your heart.
Well, he didn’t ask me in person, but sure enough I received a “please donate your hard earned money to the John Kerry campaign fund” letter in the mail the other day. Now, after seeing the VH1 Bush v. Kerry bling off, it really puts it in perspective for me.
John Kerry is a fairly wealthy guy – what’s his net worth? Somewhere around the $100 million mark? Now, he’s married to one of the wealthiest women in the world, Teresa Heinz-Kerry, her net worth pulling in at somewhere around $1 billion…my average yearly income is let’s say it’s a fraction of that and he’s asking me to donate to his campaign fund? I’m already voting for the man – now he wants my money too?
Me just being jaded…I think it’s still the designer’s block
Well – today isn’t such a bad day – barring the fact that I’ve been having some super weird dreams lately. Yes, dreams that even I think are weird and maybe they’re what’s contributing to my designer’s block today. I woke up pumped and ready to work on my current project, but about 5 minutes in I became antsy and my mind started drifting to all the projects I want to do for myself (i.e. hacking up this blog so it shows up properly in IE – I’m still teetering on that one though) – finishing cssgoddess, redesigning buniek, design a header for a friend, and another idea I can’t wait to get started on. I can bring myself back to the task at hand easily enough, but now I’ve run into a wall – the designer’s block wall…
Yes, it seems I have a bunch of stuff on my plate and I am trying to balance it – somedays are harder than others, but for the most part I enjoy it so it makes it all alright. I just wanted to get a blog or two in there since someone has been riding me about it. Now, I’m gonna play my flute. For some odd reason, that usually helps to get my creative juices flowing again when the well seems to run dry – hmmm….
How awesome is this? ThinkGeek :: HTTPanties
Now I can show the men (and occassionally women) trying to get into my panties how I really feel…they currently only have two codes though:
But, I personally think some of the other error codes could come in handy too
On another note, in my quest through mindless stuff on the ‘net, I came across the Dilbert House Project…now while the creators are saying some of these things are “impractical” I beg to differ on at least one of them…
The drive up window for the pizza delivery boy, fedex driver, etc. – now, I personally know that I would sooo love to have that feature. No opening the door, not making sure the kitty doesn’t try to escape (not that she actually would), no having those uncomfortable moments when looking for you rwallet, etc…
Just my 2 cents…
Granted, MTV is no longer on the list of my favorite music channels cuz they only have about 10% music, about 5% half way plausible shows, and about 85% crap, but all that aside, I think they’ve actually come up with something good…
Video Mods – the idea is to combine video games with music videos , two things I enjoy, but what really did it for me was “Gossip Folks” by Missy Elliot.
The mod was complete with background dancers and snow-boarding – granted, the animated characters looked nothing like their real life counterparts and I don’t think Missy or Ludacris ever snow-boarded a day in their lives, but that’s besides the point…
The cogs in my head started turning…but then…a dancing yeti – yes….the legendary furry snow beast was bustin’ a groove with two skeletons and that’s when I knew I had to figure out how these video mods work!
Frankly, I don’t care too much for 3D graphics (unless I’m not the one creating it) – but now I’m curious..I would so love to make a nifty little 3D video mod – but one step at a time…guess I need to dust off 3DS Max (thank you ****) and the accompanying manual…gosh I hope I didn’t uninstall it…eh
It seems my kitty kat (spoiled as she may be) likes to talk back…she knows when she’s doing something wrong, she knows 10 minutes ahead of time when she’s about to do something wrong…but when I tell her “no” – it’s like she’s trying to negotiate her way into being able to do it…
Little Tiger: “Mrrrow”
Little Tiger: “Mrow Mrow”
Little Tiger: (in her pouty whiney kitty voice) “Mew”
She’s lucky she’s cute…
Well, I don’t really know what got slipped into my coffee this morning, but when 3:45pm rolled around I had a minor power surge which shut off everything…
my computer as I was working on a website template, my t.v. which was sporting fuse’s “warped week” and all my lights…
funny thing, I didn’t even get mad and just as I was about to reach down and turn my computer back on…it dawned on me – I’d been working since 7:30am this morning…what in the world was I thinking! FREE DAY!!!!
Well, needless to say, the stereo went on and I decided dancing around my house listening to Killber Bees by The Stills in a Little Mermaid beachtowl was a bomb diggity way to spend my Friday afternoon…
Some of you may be wondering how I’m managing to blog right now – you know, cuz the computer’s off…I call it super awesome Jedi computer control powers
“I’m not drunk, I just can’t feel my legs.”
Disclaimer: this only happened once, on my 21st b-day due to someone I know challenging me while I was already drunk to drink an entire bottle of something (???) by myself in 10 minutes knowing darn well I wouldn’t refuse a challenge which made me even drunker…since that day, I have not been drunk, ever, ever, ever again…
Ha “un-named” person, now you can no longer tease me about this – now the entire world knows…pretty slick huh?
You may notice a lot of “rock” bands on this list – I think I’m going through a phase
1. Getting Away With Murder – Papa Roach
I never really cared too much for Papa Roach…well, that is until I heard this song for the second time – I guess they’re not so bad after all
2. Silver and Cold – AFI
This band is starting to grow on me – well not literally – but I have found myself listening to a few of their songs and actually liking it – go ‘head
3. So Cold – Breaking Benjamin
Uh yea…weird what I thought when I actually saw the video…but that’ll be left for another post on another day.
4. Somebody Told Me – The Killers
“Somebody told me that you had a boyfriend that looks like a girlfriend that I had in February of last year…”
Oh yea, you know I like this song
5. Vitamin R (Leading Us Along) – Chevelle
Chevelle? Isn’t that a car made by Chevy? Oh, yep…it is…prolly why www.chevelle.com was already taken by a car parts dealer and they had to fall back to www.chevelleinc.com – at least they rank #1 on Google for “chevelle” – but I gotta admit, they do make good music
6. Breaking the Habit – Linkin Park
Of course something by Linkin Park was going to make it on the list – that’s to be expected.
7. Goodies – Ciara ft. Peetie Pablo
I think I like this song cuz it’s something you can choreograph a dance to, which I’ve already done…I have to say it though, Ciara is a lovely girl and all – but her face looks funky throughout this video – what’s up with all that funny lip stuff? I also want to know where she finds those low rise jeans that don’t show crack – I have yet to find a pair…
8. Broken – Seether ft. Amy Lee
aaaaaah, I just love this song…I swear, it reminds me of something, can’t put my finger on it though – but I do have to sign along
9. A Decade Under the Influence – Taking Back Sunday
when I first heard it this song, my initial reaction was “huh?” – but after listening to it a few times, I can’t help but watch my foot tap and head bop to the beat – I’ve even caught myself singing the chorus a few times…freaky
10. Just Like You – Three Days Grace
Just because I love the guitarist’s mohawk…it’s not like the normal pointy ones (it’s all fun and games ’til someone loses an eye) but it looks like someone took a pair of scissors to it and made the points blunt…pretty cool
Just took another quiz over at quizilla and it appears that I am Bettie Page…go figure
