sometimes i should refrain from some conversations with customers. for instance:

customer, mid 50's, heavier-set, wearing an old emerald downs t-shirt: "as arnold said, 'i'll be back."

me: "alright. we'll be here. and as arnold said, 'hasta la vista, baby.'"

he then gave me an awkward glance and left. woops.

under pressure.

remember when i exponentially increased my queue for library books the other evening? i currently have 3 books waiting for me at the library ready to be picked up. if you don't see me for a while, it is because i am trying to fit all of my readings in before my books are due. see ya.

best friends.

you know you are best friends when she says to you:

..."yeah, she is totally rad AND she has a boyfriend. so, there's still hope for you."

thanks ang. i am glad that you haven't given up on me yet. lovelovelove. only 55 days!!!!

you hit an all new level of cool when you spend your evening browsing the online local library catalog and expand you book queue. hella cool.

mexican coke.

tonight i had a delightful dinner at serious pie with brooke. she ordered a mexican coke, and i couldn't help but think about how refreshing it looked, especially in this summer heat.

yesterday i was in the sun just for a few hours at golden gardens with these guys and it was so refreshing to be around such great company. and though we had a relaxing afternoon, they exuded quite a bit of energy on stage. see?

needless to say, though doomsday is always our conversation of choice, being around fellow midwesterners and beyond is always quite refreshing. just like mexican coke.

last year i made it into the Seattle PI twice for very different reasons. as a result, i made it a goal to make it in the paper 3 times. instead, i have decided to refine my goal. make it on the news 3 times in 2010. technically, i have achieved this (apparently camping 12 hours for a phone makes your crazy enough to be on television). i appeared on many early morning news broadcasts (both while i was awake, and sleeping). i was also interviewed for a radio station. i plan on lumping those together, since i'd rather not make life easier for myself...

today i will have achieved number 2. danny scored some VIP tickets to a taping of new day. hopefully the bachelor will have a rose for me at the end...

ps. have you seen hans' new website ( it has been getting attention everywhere (i.e. it's nice that,, etc.)! leave it to hans to one-up me and get interviewed by an australian radio station...way to go...seriously...way. to. go.
