Time For a Shout Out...

This guy...

Photobucket

It's easy to take for granted this little man... who can spew scalding hot water within minutes of turning a knob on the very coldest of L.A. mornings...but I like to say a little... "thanks Mr. Water Heater..." every time i get to wake up to his glorious warmth...

Now if we could just work out the whole freezing toilet seat situation...

Another Airport Story...

So I was all ready for airport security...no guns...check...no liquids...check...it came time for me to go through the "metal detector".
I hate this part...i always feel like if it finds some metal I'll get zapped or something.
It reminds me of when Atreyu goes through the Southern Oracle and you wait with bated breath to see if his heart is pure enough that the Sphinxes don't open their eyes and zap him.

I think about that every time I go through airport security.

Anyway...I'm pretty sure I am completely metal less and I walk through...but i guess I walked a little funny...I think I almost ran through out of irrational fear. The security guy on the other end wasn't having it, and said....
"I need you to turn around... go back through... and this time...walk normal."

I had failed.

I went back to the beginning. At least I was being given a second chance.
But I was stumped...which one was "normal"? I can do a limp, I can walk like a gorilla, I can show you an old lady with a cane...but for the life of me i couldn't remember "normal"...the pressure was definitely on.
I gathered all the knowledge I could as to how "normal" people walk... and I went through again... this time...in slow motion...and...on tiptoe.
The security guy shook his head...but knowing I was a lost cause told me i could grab my bag and move on.

My Favorite Quote of the Day...That I Said...

Upon meeting some new people...

"Hi...it's nice to meet you.........sorry...it'll take a minute or two for me to come out of my shell...then you're really gonna miss that shell..."

A Wonderful Birthday...

You know what would be really funny... to throw a party on someone's birthday and invite them without alluding to the fact that it's their birthday... then when they arrive tell them it's an intervention for them and have the guests be really concerned... then when the guest of honor is real down in the dumps and ashamed have evryoine say "Just kidding...Suprise Happy Birthday!" They'll be so relieved that they don't have a problem that they will have a wonderful birthday!

Don't be Schmeil!...

What if the word "late" was changed to the word "schmeil"...???

"I'm sorry I'm so schmeil, I couldn't find my keys."...
"I'm running a little bit schmeil, but will get there soon."...
"Don't be schmeil!"...
"My period is schmeil...sure hope I'm not pregnant."

I think the world would feel just a tiny bit lighter...

Traffic School...

so i've been taking online traffic school lately...you know... just to brush up (and to get a red light photo ticket off my record) and i've been noticing some pretty funny stuff...
Here is an exact questions i was asked in order to move onto the course three...
True or False?...

1. When you encounter someone driving the wrong way on a one way street, you should block their path with your car in order to protect other drivers on the road.

A. True

B. False

By the way... the correct answer is False. I really hope you got that.


Here's another driving tidbit to remember...

"Use your horn to warn others of your presence or of an impending situation. DO NOT use your horn to express your emotions (i.e. anger, rage, disappointment)."

HONK HONK!! "I'm sooo Dissapointed in you!!" Hahaha.

And my personal favorite quote in course one...

"Backing up against the flow of traffic is foolishly risky."
"foolishly risky"...that's sooo cute!

I'm Confused...

I'm confused. Whenever the millenium was brought up in the 1980's and 90's... there was always talk of shiny futuristic metallic clothes... Here we are almost a decade in... NO metallic clothes what so ever... I guesss we really misjudged that.

"Spare a Quarter"...

As if we need any more proof that costs are rising...but there's a homeless guy in my neighbor hood who has been asking for change the same way for as long as i've lived in LA... I call him "Spare a quarter" guy... he always says the same thing with the same toothless grin... "Spare a quarter?"... yesterday outside of Trader Joes... even HIS costs are going up as he said to me... "Spare a dollar?"!

You are incorrect... riding around in the motorized shopping cart which is typically reserved for the elderly and disabled is LEGAL... taking photographs of your friends having a jovial time in a Ralph's shopping center is ILLEGAL...go figure...

No gum...?

Have you ever been to Target and just bought 1 item...? betcha you haven't...In fact I recently asked my local Target checker if he has ever seen this.... he said...
"Just one item...with no gum....?"I said..."just 1 item with no gum...no magazine... no last minute impulse buy of a $7.99 Titanic DVD...1 item...you ever see this?"... He said no.

My Slightly Evil Thought For the Day...

Favorite Movie "Quote"...

Ok... i know it's kinda long to be a Quote Unquote "Quote"... but I love this quote...go ahead... read it in your best Brooklyn accent...

"No, there's more! You see? When the left tire mark goes up on the curb and the right tire mark stays flat and even? Well, the '64 Skylark had a solid rear axle, so when the left tire would go up on the curb, the right tire would tilt out and ride along its edge. But that didn't happen here. The tire mark stayed flat and even. This car had an independent rear suspension. Now, in the '60's, there were only two other cars made in America that had positraction, and independent rear suspension, and enough power to make these marks. One was the Corvette, which could never be confused with the Buick Skylark. The other had the same body length, height, width, weight, wheel base, and wheel track as the '64 Skylark, and that was the 1963 Pontiac Tempest. "

Cute Problem...

You know those websites like ask.com... well i found this guys question and just loved the idea of this man sitting down at his computer with this little problem...

"one day i passed a bakery store in a mall (which i visit frequently so i passed that bakery so many times) and i noticed that they've changed the name from 'bread story' to 'bread tales'. so when i met up with some friends and i told them (rather enthusiastically) that the bakery had changed its name. and they all looked at me like 'why are you telling us that?' or 'is that important?' is it not something you usually tell people? i have problems figuring out what to say sometimes so i figured i might say something that i saw earlier that day but it seemed like people don't like it."

It's such a cute problem...

2 Curlers...

My big sister and I are three years apart... when we were growing up she was kinda mean... i look back and think that I am a stronger person today because of how difficult she made my childhood at every possible turn....and i would thank her.
That doesn't keep me from blogging about the suffering she caused me 17 years later...
Please see a letter that i wrote to her asking a very simple favor...
(Celeste, May I please borrow 2 curlers just 2 curlers, that's right just just 2 curlers. I will give them back on 3-16-91. If they are not on your desk by 3:00 then I will owe you $5.00. Please consider it! Thanks, Nicolette P.S. you are absolutly right...just 2 curlers!)
then she said...
(That doesn't make any sense. Why would you give me $5.00 if the curlers weren't on my desk)
Photobucket
She then asked me to give her some reasons why she should let me borrow 2 curlers... see below...
(1. because I am your cute sister.
2. you have about 13 and i have 3.
3. because you love me
4. and because I am giving you stickers! by the way I am running out.)
Photobucket

No. I never received the curlers... in case you are wondering.

Same Same...?

One of my favorite things in the world doesn't have a name... it's when you hear a word and see the object itself at the same time... for instance you're in your car jammin out to Ace of Base "I Saw the Sign"... when as soon as she says the word "sign" you happen to look up and see a sign! or... you're jamming out to Dean Martin's "Thats Amore" and right when he says the word "moon" you happen to turn a corner and there it is... the moon...! it makes me feel like everything is perfect even just for an instant... but the crazy thing is... it doesn't have a name... deja vu gets a name why not this? I think it should be called "same same"... ?I don't know... do you have a better idea?...

Crazy Tim...

The Movies are an extremely awesome local Silverlake band... The lead singer, Tim... is "kinda crazy" (that would be a direct quote from everyone that has ever met him).
Last night at the rock show he kicked off his shoes and emptied his pockets on the stage...

Photobucket

The keys, wallet, phone, and gum wrapper make sense... but is that a Jenga piece next to the lighter? and if so, why is Time carrying random jenga pieces in his pockets to the rock show??? crazy Tim....

The Secret Continued...

Lunch is served. It's tostadas. Very interesting thing... before I decided that I was going to experiment with "Secreting" my lunch today... I was actually hoping for tostadas... then when I made the firm descision to utilize the powers of "The Secret"... i got greedy with the idea of pizza. Thus... "The Secret" does work with whatever you "Secret" FIRST...once you shift your thinking... the forces of "The Secret" dissapate into a dark abyss of secrets...I think.

The Secret...

It is currently 11:12 am... I'm at work waiting for lunch to be served. I have been using "The Secret" all morning to be served pizza....I will let you know if it works as soon as lunch is served.
Let's see if this whole "Secret" thing works once and for all!

Sunset Chardonnay...

Had people over for a "Sunset Chardonnay" on Saturday. Thought this would be a nice grown up party... we would have an elegant glass of Chardonnay on the patio as the sun goes down...maybe talk tannins and current events... nibble on cheese... retire early...

Well.....after the guests left at 4am, I woke up to this pation table...

I don't know about you, but I don't even see any Chardonnay... but I do see binoculars, a wine glass rimmed in mayonaise, and at least 7 empty espressos.

Oh where the night took us.... Neil Diamond sing-a-longs... Jenga towers with String Cheese... rounds of "Row Row Row your Boat"... drawings of burn victims reuniting with their interracial family...dancing at the Akbar... and then there were the casulaties... such as a sprained ankle.

Good times everyone!

Firm Handshake The Clown (he'll greet your guests with a very firm handshake)

Uncomfortably Large Bulge in His Pants The Clown (adult parties only)

Dead Pan The Clown (your guests will have a blast trying to get HIM to laugh!)

Spits When He Talks The Clown (great for a pool party!)

Chain Smoker The Clown (you provide the cigarettes and watch him smoke one right after another!)

Dresses For The Opposite Season The Clown (shorts in the winter, sweater in the summer... this guy is crazy!)

Fly Is Always Down The Clown (you just try telling him ... he'll act like he only speaks french! Joker!!)

R.C.'s Birthday...

R.c's Birthday was one of the funnest nights I've had in a long time.... Havok was wreaked!!! We started at his house at 3pm and drank our share of champagne, jager, tequilla, beer, and of course... ESPRESSO!! Then we gathered our whistles and began our "Whistle Stop Tour".
The rules are simple...
1. we stop at every bar from Los Feliz to Silverlake
2. we only stay for ONE drink/shot
3. we blow our whistles loudly and often
4. we wreak havok on our way to the bars
5. we wreak havok in the bars
6. we do our best not to be arrested
7. we talk about how much we love R.C as often as possible

The videos below were taken with a small camera and i apologize for the poor lighting and quality. But enjoy...nonetheless...
These first two are walking down Sunset Blvd. after 5 or 6 bars...
video
videoThis was at the end of the night... R.C. was D-runk!
videoThis is kinda hard to see... at the Akbar dancing... if you squint you can see Mathew and Nathan
video

This was in the beginning of the day when we were still having somewhat normal convos...

"Frooga Looga Jegga Boppin" ... as seen below....

An Italian Joke...

A little Italian boy enters the confessional.
"Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose girl."
The priest asks, "Is that you, little Joey Pagano?"
"Yes, Father, it is."
"And who was the girl you were with?"
"I can't tell you, Father, I don't want to ruin her reputation."
"Well, Joey, I'm sure to find out her name sooner or later so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Minetti?"
"I cannot say."
"Was it Teresa Mazzarelli?"
"I'll never tell."
"Was it Nina Capelli?"
"I'm sorry, but I cannot name her."
"Was it Cathy Piriano?"
"My lips are sealed."
"Was it Rosa DiAngelo, then?"
"Please, Father, I cannot tell you."
The priest sighs in frustration. "You're very tight lipped, and I admire that. But you've sinned and have to atone. You cannot be an altar boy now for 4 months. Now you go and behave yourself."
Joey walks back to his pew, and his friend Franco slides over and whispers, "What'd you get?" "Four months vacation and five good leads!"

Wink...

I have a problem with winking...it's almost a tick...a habit... i wink when the bus boy takes away my dirty dish, when the man sells me a magazine, whenever someone helps me in anyway... it's kinda my way of saying "thank you".
Yesterday i found the worst possible place and time to wink at a stranger. I was going through security at LAX airport (you may see where this is going)...as i waited in a long line, i watched the security guy taking ids... he was serious...i mean this guy was thorough... he had a kind of light he would shine on the ids to see if they were fake and he was asking a lot of questions... i began to become nervous because i had lost my California drivers license (which happens all of the time... it's just a matter of wearing that outfit again) so i had brought my old Arizona drivers license which i got when i was 16 and doesn't expire until 2044!... nobody believes it because of the distant expiration and the faded picture that no longer resembles my mature features... i finally get up to the guy and he's not having it..."do you have a passport?" "not on me" "any other form of id?" "uhhhh....nope". He takes this big red stamp and slams it against my boarding pass and asks me to step aside. Finally a bunch of security start striping me down...patting me down and one man grabs my id and boarding pass and goes over to a computer. I ask one of the security "is everything ok?" she tells me i am a code 2 security risk... I say "oh, that's good?" Finally i get my clothes and purse back and the man walks up with my boarding pass and id... he hands it to me and says "please proceed to gate 80".... this is when i say thank you.........and wink at him.

What I ate Today...

Woke up at 9am and had a double espresso with a sugar stick, then I had a BLT around 10am... shortly following I had two potato tacos with salsa verde and spanish rice... then a chicken salad sandwhich. At about 3pm I was hungry... so I had potato salad with bacon crumbles, cheese ravioli with roasted atrichokes and bow tie pasta salad with red and yellow bell peppers and marinated yellow, green, and red tomatoes... I drank a coke and a vitamin water... for "lunch dessert" I consumed peach cobbler and a chocolate chip cookie...
When I get off work I look forward to preparing a pizza, having chips and salsa and some refreshing white wine...
Think I'll skip dessert...

Happy Birthday...

I wrote a song that can be sung to friends and enemies alike. It's called "Happy Birthday". This is how it goes...
"Happy Birthday"
(sung to the tune of "Happy Birthday")
Happy Birthday...nobody likes you
Happy Birthday...nobody likes you
Happy Birthday...nobody likes you
Happy Birthday...nobody likes you.
