Why am I up so early?  
For some reason my body decided to wake up at 9:30 am on a Saturday. This is not on. However, I have a zillion things to do today, so I guess it's just as well. I need to:

  • Get the oil changed in my car
  • Go to clothes store and check out shorts
  • Go grocery shopping
  • Call my friend in Florida to see whether or not I'll get to see her while down there
  • Call Mark
  • Start going through all the clothes that are sitting in piles around my room and decide to chuck them or store them neatly
  • Hopefully catch Alex to discuss some RS stuff I keep forgetting about

  • I think that's enough for one day.

    Randomly, I have seen a Chicago bus that is BRIGHT PEPTO-BISMOL PINK. It also has many pictures of Reese Witherspoon on it - it is done up for Legally Blonde 2. This bus made me think of both altricial and queerasjohn. Also, am I the only one who thinks that Reese looks like Barbie come to life in those ads? The long blonde hair, the pink business suit, the little hat... it's a bit frightening, really.

    Also, I totally put my foot in my mouth last night. I am posting this because a) it's good to laugh at oneself and b) as a form of penance. I was on the phone with Mark as I drove home last night, regaling him with the tale of a man who'd hit on me as I left work the night before. I got to the end of the story and said, "Why do I only attract freaks?" and as soon as the words were out of my mouth I realized what I'd said. GOOD GRIEF I'M A MORON. I apologized profusely and Mark mostly laughed at me - I think he understands that I didn't mean him - I meant these random guys online and occasionally in real life who say the strangest things. But you must admit that it was not my best moment. I am such a t00b.

    Okay, off to do five million things...

    Man, do I need new icons or what?
    I feel: rushedrushed

    Your faux pas was cute. Heh. But you're right about one things, there are a lot of freaks out there.

    I suppose it was kinda cute - could've been much worse.

    Oh hey! Any word on my scarf? I haven't thought about it in ages...

    Re: Hee...
    I sent you an email about the scarf.

    I once said to my last boyfriend "Why is it I attract losers?"

    He just looked at me and then I said, "Especially you!"

    He just laughed. Of course, he was not a loser and we're still the best of friends, but I figure if I was gonna dig myself in, I may as well go all the way down. ;)

    Vicki: You are standing on my last nervehermorrine on June 28th, 2003 07:32 pm (UTC)
    Ugh. I have nothing against pink, but that shade is rather... revolting.
    Bizarrabizarra on June 28th, 2003 08:00 pm (UTC)
    LOL especially on Buses. :-) And my grandmother's bathroom. Her bathroom is that Bismol pink. Imagine going into that room early in the morning and turning on the light! LOL Wakes you up REALLY QUICK!

    The freak beacon burns brightly
    nah, u didnt stick ur foot in it at all. I often say that I have a "freak beacon"...and if they(my friends or boyfriend) take it wrong...maybe they're hiding something. If they laugh, they're usually fine and confident they're not included in that population. Besides, from what you've written, Mark seems very sharp and probably thinks you walk on water anyway :P
    You two are cute in a cavity causing way that can only be compared to picklepuss and kari. :)
    My freak beacon theory (i think you can relate to this): for some reason i have a bright flashing neon sign above my head that says "Freaks apply within" and this is something that ONLY the freaks can see. Sadly i have no idea how to get rid of it-i would throw a cover over it, or bust the light, or even remove it, but alas...it burns brightly for freaks everywhere. And they ask the nastiest, rudest, most personal questions-completely inappropriate.
    I think being polite tends to get me in even more trouble..i try to be polite-(shooing them away nicely or saying i have a boyfriend/husband/girlfriend-whatever i think will work but wont be offensive), and this only seems to encourage the bad behavior. Although, if you get tired of polite and start trying to be more assertive in your disdain for their advances, they end up going PSYCHO!!! At which point i A)find a cop, B)phone a friend, C)RUN!

    Anyway, now i have started saying that i just got parolled and would love someone i can settle down with or i look them straight in the eye and say "Your parents must be so proud of the mouth you've got on you, i bet they cry themselves to sleep everynight. You sleep alone honey, and it is definitely NOT by CHOICE" I have found this an effective method at crushing them and their oversized psyho ego.
    (if they ask what you were incarcerated for say "well, my lawyer said self defense, but my boyfriend deserved everything he got"
    I guarantee the guy will turn chalk white and piss himself...AND he'll leave the area.QUICKLY. :) I'm SO evil. mwu ha ha ha ha!!!

    well, i gotta hit the hay, but i hope you're doing well, sorry it's been a while since i said "hi"! *hugs*
    Take care...and remember to have some frozen drinks for me whilst in Florida!
