Life To-Do List 4/27/09


I'm kinda anal in that I love to make lists and organize things. There's a lot of things I want to accomplish in the next couple months (hopefully) and I figured making a list of them may help motivate me. I'll cross things off as I finish them.
  • buy a fish-eye camera
  • get a new job in the city
  • visit my father and friends in Cecil County
  • go through all my clothes and shoes and donate what I'm not wearing
  • plan the Harper's Ferry trip
  • try to swear less.....i realized I do this way too much
  • save some money.....somehow
  • go on an unplanned, impromptu weekend camping trip
  • beach day trip
  • DC day trip (zoo, museums, etc)

These things don't seem to add up very well. Trips require money, which I am ridiculously short on right now. This moves finding a new job in the city up in importance.

I <3 L

Random IM convo between a friend and myself about a guy she's seeing.................

L: but i dunno
i guess i feel like everything is so right that he must be ok with me being a weirdo

L: he also likes dogs
says hi to his neighbors
and picks up litter in his neighborhood
so i guess he's kind of a keeper

me: hahahahahaha thats priceless

L: he's like "you can litter but not in my neighborhood!" as he picks up a can of what I was sure was sparks, but was just store brand orangesoda

me: what a cutie

L: yeah well
he's a hairy guy
it evens out

Boyfriend Requirements (some flexible, some not)

So during my 23 years thus far I've compiled a pretty good mental list of the things I want in a partner. Some of these are serious and some are just funny (though if they do all apply to someone you know hook a sister up). I'll add to this periodically so I apologize if it gets to be a little lengthy.

My Perfect Man:
  • absolutely hilarious (bonus points if he can laugh at himself)
  • honest
  • does a mean Louie Armstrong impression (as I would like to think I do)
  • does other great impersonations
  • impeccable memory for song lyrics and movie quotes
  • has his own hobbies and interests different from my own (aka an individual)
  • has a last name that either sounds like or rhymes with a vegetable
  • is lazy, but still ambitious (most people don't want this but I'm super lazy and need someone to be lazy with)
  • taller than me (superficial, I know, but I just feel safe and like it when a guy is bigger than me)
  • loves music (musically talented earns bonus points)
  • slightly romantic (little things like random texts, surprise visits, etc)
  • can grow a full beard and does so at least once a year (I like manly men what can I say?)
  • takes charge sometimes
  • likes cats and dogs
  • has nice hair (and by that i mean if you are balding to the point where you only have hair right on top of your ears and none on top....please shave that shit...i prefer no hair to horribly balding)
  • doesn't have a man sweater.....some hair is ok, a sweater is not for me
  • good travel companion
  • likes to snuggle
  • willing and excited to be my cooking guinea pig
Like I said, I'll keep adding to this as I think of things. I just love making lists and figured this topic was definitely worthy.

Jack Shit Sunday

"A memory is what is left when something happens and does not completely unhappen."
— Edward de Bono

Word of the day: braingasm - "n. An intense rush of intellectual fervor or excitement in response to a stimulus such as recognizing a literary allusion in "The Simpsons" or finally understanding how to do that advanced calculus problem or even just anything really cool. Usually accompanied by inability to formulate actual words and an intense enthusiasm about the subject that induced the braingasm. " (via Urbandictionary.com)

And heres a site that posts daily braingasms. My favorite one so far is the Count from Sesame Street singing a ridiculous song where.....yea...you just gotta watch it.

Incubus "Echo"

"There's something about the look in your eyes
Something I noticed when the light was just right
It reminded me twice that I was alive
And it reminded me that you're so worth the fight

My biggest fear will be the rescue of me
Strange how it turns out that way, yeah

Could you show me dear...
Something I've not seen?
Something infinitely interesting
Could you show me dear...
Something I've not seen?
Something infinitely interesting

Theres something about the way you move
I see your mouth in slow motion when you sing
More subtle than something someone contrives
Your movements echo that I have seen the real thing

Your biggest fear will be the rescue of you
Strange how it turns out that way, yeah

Could you show me dear...
Something I've not seen?
Something infinitely interesting
Could you show me dear...
Something I've not seen?
Something infinitely interesting"

......amazing song <3

Cardboard Love

How F'n Adorable is This??

" my mobile phone quit as i tried to let my wife know that i was caught in traffic and would be late for our anniversary dinner. i wrote a message on my laptop, asking other motorists to call her, printed it on a portable inkjet, and taped it to my rear windshield. when i finally arrived home, my wife gave me the longest kiss ever. 'i really think you love me,' she said. 'at least 70 people called me and told me so.' "

Kiss me in the rain

There's nothing better in the whole world.

(On a related note: I forgot what an awesome movie The Notebook is. I may end up watching it here soon.)

Insomnia vs. Narcolepsy and Randomness

Currently listening to: "My Immortal"-Evanescence

So, my sleeping has becoming ridiculously out of whack again here lately. I go in cycles it seems. For like 3-4 days I'm wide and I mean WIDE awake (rapid, racing thoughts are usually the culprit). Then I crash and am ridiculously tired for about the same period of time. I'm really hoping to get this whole thing worked out before summer gets into full swing because I'm planning on being super busy this year. Comments/suggestions are completely welcome and appreciated regarding this dilemma.

Quote I'm loving today:
"When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the hell, leap."
-Cynthia Heimel (via littlemiss)

Image I'm loving today:click here. How cute is that?

And check this video out if you hate Kanye West half as much as I do. It's great.

Movie Review: Zack and Miri Make a Porno
I don't even know where to begin with this one. Two words come to mind: filthy and hilarious. If you have a weak stomach, don't appreciate potty humor, or are easily offended this movie is not for you. I loved it personally (minus one part I could have gone without seeing, not going to spoil that for everyone else though). I was flabbergasted on numerous occasions and spent a good majority of the night with my hand over my mouth and eyes open wide in shock. But, despite the alarming nature of the film, Seth Rogan and Elizabeth Banks have some amazing on-screen chemistry. Their banter was probably one of my favorite parts of the movie. I think I remember saying, "This is the most sickeningly-sweet and utterly-disgusting movie at the same time." Yep....that sums it up well.
