Last week at about this time I was dancing with some chick named Diane at the Bulgarian house of foriegn music, or whatever the place was called. She knew who I was but I didn't realize I'd seen her before until I'd left the club. I couldn't figure out who she was, but one of you guys would have to know, so I need some help. The girl was about 5'6" with straight blonde hair and a really big mouth. I've been racking my brain all week and still don't have a clue about where she could be from. I'm thinking Sage or RPI, but really, I'm freakin stumped. Thoughts?

This is the best one yet. We also have some news from E! I was at Wal*Mart today and I noticed that they were selling some Olsen Twins beauty appliances . . . those girls are really hiring the right people to do their marketing.

I get back to my computer this morning, and someone has left this message on my computer regarding my resume:Someone: Ok, so I am looking at your resumeWhat do you guys think?
Someone: And dude, you cannot mix "dean's list" with "fantasy sports leagues"
Someone: It's just not cricket, baby
Someone: If they want to know about your personal life, they'll ask you
Someone: But a fantasy sports league doesn't so much make you look cool
Someone: And everyone donates blood

Damn. Are the Olsen twins going to come after me now? If you're listening Ashley or Mary Kate, I welcome all legal action wholeheartedly.
The Rensselaer OT hoax was by far the most flattering of all the articles, for sure. I mean, I gave them both 1600s on their SATs and admitted them to a world-class program at a nationally accredited school. Other people insinuated that they were going to the University of Ohio at Dayton for their business school. The University of Ohio at Dayton for their BUSINESS SCHOOL. I mean, come on, what's more believable: that they both got 1600s or they're going to University of Ohio because of its BUSINESS school. Well . . . OK . . . but I digress.
You're usually supposed to digress to something; at least back to your original point, but I gots nothin.

OK, find this song and listen to it:Kings of Convenience, Royksopp Remix - "I Don't Know What I Can Save You From"It was on Six Feet Under in Brenda's house for a second. I thought it was a great use of the song since it reflected their relationship at the time.
I sound like a freakin' camgirl.
Download the song. You'll love it.

Is this a compliment or something else? I can't decide:Mary : Anyway, on Meet My Folks, they had ex-boyfriends come on
Mary : And they were all saying mean stuff
Mary : So I figured, out of all my ex-boyfriends, you would probably be the only one who would go on the show . . .
Mary : So don't embarrass me.

I received this letter today. I don't give to enough good causes, so I'm adding one to the list. In reading this, it touched me when I started thinking of the days, months, and years of time that her mother and father stayed by her side in the hospital waiting room, giving their dying daughter all their support. It seems like a simple wish that the rest of the families that fight alongside their loved ones should grieve in a more forgiving atmosphere.
Here is that letter:For some of you, this may seem like it's coming out of the blue since I haven't spoken to you in a while. Many others already know about the situation and probably don't need to be asked. To keep a long story short, my ex-girlfriend from college passed away last weekend (1/11/03). She just turned 27 and recently lost her battle with leukemia after almost four years.
One of her last wishes was to fully renovate the family waiting room in the bone marrow transplant wing of the hospital where she received treatment, since it could really use it. Her family has set up a fund in her name to achieve this goal. The favor I wanted to ask of everyone would be to make a small donation to this fund. Now, I am not going to dictate how much everyone should give, nor do I need to know whether or not you make a contribution. Please take it upon yourself and make a contribution as you see fit. I am merely just trying to reach out to as many people as possible. I realize that many of you never had the good fortune to have met her, but I know that she and her family would greatly appreciate whatever gesture you would be able to make.
Should you choose to contribute, you may make the check out to THE JULIE FREZON MEMORIAL FUND and direct it to the following address:RE: JULIE FREZON MEMORIAL FUNDIf you are interested, this is her obituary.

She had so many great qualities. During her battle, she never wanted sympathy, and she'd ignore you if you ever tried to give her any. She never wanted to be the center of attention - she was so selfless. Again, whatever you can give would be greatly appreciated.

New Poll! When I was making this one, I was sitting at my computer trying to sing the each of the songs in a Biz Markie voice . . . I got to "I made it th-" in Like A Virgin before I cracked up due to the fact that A) I couldn't do a Biz Markie voice and 2) Just thinking of Biz Markie singing Like A Virgin should be enough to make anyone laugh. I'm not voting on this one; I can't decide if any one of them has any more comedic value than another.

In a recent string of e-mails about our Survivor friend, we recount ye olde fraternity life:DJ stumbles into his room to find a BOMed Burn comatose on his couch.Credit GFunk
"Silly fuzzy Burn" he muttered to himself as he slipped into his cave for three drunken hours of sleep before climbing Everest the very next day . . . barefoot.
A little while later, DJ is awakened by the sounds of running water in his cave. A water leak perhaps? Nay. 'Twas the fuzzy Burn relieving himself 'out the window' behind the headwall of DJ's cave - which would have been a great idea, if he had actually opened the window.

OK, this is the second link in a row that I'm posting from the new Geisha site that I added to the list of my daily visits; now it's your turn. Go there every day to see all the hilariousness that the Eastern world has to offer (and pick up a copy of Shaolin Soccer while you're at it).

My good friend J. Smith has alerted me to the many faces of Hagan. Those of you who have been lucky enough to experience one of the many iterations of Hagan must have a favorite Hagan moment; so which one is it? Could it be . . .An aspiring artist comissioned by the Australian Government?Well?

Yesterday, my 25 year-old roomate asked me how to peel an orange.

I think the funniest thing about Saturday night was the role of Burberry in my altercations.
After a quick stop to pick up a ticket, I met my friend Tami in Adams Morgan since he was slated to relocate to New York City today and I surely was not going to miss a night on the town on the eve of his last day in D.C. I met him at about 1:15 at The Brass Monkey and the place was packed to the point of agony. It started getting more comfortable as people filtered out to attend their after-hours functions, and I started talking to a Russian-Polish-English girl named Kate. Kate noticed a scarf on some girl's neck and said to me, "Is it just me or is that scarf advertising the fact that she has no personal sense of style?"
OF COURSE, I agreed and started commenting on how pervasive Burberry was; that added to the fact that it was probably a knock-off. As I was saying this, a marine that had talked to Kate at a different bar earlier walked up beside me and pointed at the scarf and said loudly "THAT girl? Is THAT the girl you're talking about?" Almost immediately, the marine's wife was there demanding that he stop his childishness.
"He listens to me," she said, "Stop this and let's go, NOW."
"Go ahead, listen to her," I said, "I don't need to start with you. Besides, I'm just playin' with ya."
That was it. He pushed me against the bar and was grabbed and escorted away by bouncers, his marine friends trailing. It was a few minutes to closing time, and we were heading out when a member of the corps (the corps, and the corps) came back inside and accused me of calling his wife a whore, which I regretfully refuted as I pushed past to go outside.
As soon as Kate and I were out of the bar, we were separated, and I was the center of attention. Some people were telling me to go, marines were telling me that they'd avenge the whore wife comment, and people were trying to keep a some other bald, drunk marine away from me since he seemed to want to hit me, and succeeded in that endeavor twice. They were nice, soft, mommy punches, so I was fine with the fact that I didn't get any good whacks in on him when he decided he'd finished his job and had away with himself.
As I was trying to sort things out with the marine with the whore of a wife, the guy who hit me came back and started pushing the other marines away and defending me! Tami made me apologize for something I never said in the interest of putting the whole thing to bed, and then tried to lure the bald guy along with us into a back alley by offering him a slice of pizza. We never got him to come with us.
That's it. What did I learn? That you can't gauge a whole division of the military by the performance of a select few of it's most classless individuals after they've been drinking. But you have to admit, when you go to a bar and a bunch of hotheaded marines are out lying to their friends in order to rile them up and start something with a civilian, you can't help but think that some of the lives our country puts out there in the name of freedom are expendable.
It's a sad state of affairs when someone even thinks this, much less has the stugots to write it in a public forum. If this guy was a GE employee, would I have said something about how GE integrity and values only go so far? No, but the employees of General Electric aren't the stewards of American values; values that I trust our armed services to uphold, and were not emulated by the few and the proud that I met last night.

Have you ever heard the saying that, "If you don't have a favorite child then you don't know them well enough?" Now that you have, I think that that quote is applicable to a situation that I recently found myself in. I was spending quite a bit of time in a certain place and was blind to the rest of my options. I didn't know what kind of amenities these other locations could provide to me, I didn't know what kind of comfort and peace they offered, until I branched out and found my true place in life:
The stall to the right.
The fat guy's shoes were under the door of my stall, so I left to wait the guy out, ventured back in and tired something different. And you know what? I've never been happier. This one's got better lighting, the TP isn't locked into one of those spin-retardant ovular roll things, there's a shelf to put your drink in, and if you're drinking out of a regular coffee cup, there's a hole in the shelf to set it in! They thought of EVERYTHING! I thought I had it all figured out before, but I was sorely mistaken when I realized that I didn't know my bathroom well enough.
My advice to you is to get to know your bathroom. You'll thank me for it.
