:: Music: Love Songs - Ernie and Rebecca

Matt has not found himself favored by the crew, and therefore will not be chosen to take part in crew activities. Sigh, he's one of my best friends, so I was rooting for him. Alas, his shyness got in the way of having fun. It's ok. I'll probably ask him to hang out with us anyway.

If I see him anymore, I'll probably go crazy, or my PRP partner in crime will kill me. It's really not my fault that he lives on the next block. This is just odd...

:: Music: Skid Row - Slave to the Grind

Laugh, if you must, at my choice of music, but I watched a Gilmore Girls ep that I'd taped, and Sebastian Bach KILLS!

I let Cat hear this song I wrote. I played it on piano and sang, then I tried it guitar, b/c I'm a fruit cup. Apparently it sounds like a political pop-punk song. Gosh darn!

Yesterday L-Sa and I hung out with Matt, to see whether he'd be crew or not. We rented a movie, then walked to my house to watch it. He's so shy that it's kind of funny. Maybe it's b/c he says L-Sa looks "ok" ;) After that, we played Texas Hold'em. Too bad we didn't play for money, b/c I'd have cleaned 'em out.

Went running w/Justin. I forgot my inhaler, and we were running up a pretty steep hill. Asthma overtook me, and I hate being a wimp, but I couldn't get enough air into my lungs. I was all woozy and everything was spinning. Ugh, it sucked so bad.

:: Music: Bad Religion - God's Love

Nearly 4 hours of recording and all we have to show for it is a few strains of a heavily distorted cover of "Cherry, Cherry" by Neil Diamond. I never got to sing b/c they couldn't mix it right. The hand claps and cymbals were a quarter beat off due to lag time, so that had to be fixed. In the end, what did I contribute to the recording session? A few "the beat's still off"s and a guitar tuner. Next time I'll suggest that we cover an Intro5pect song so I can play keyboard and do gang vox.

If you take the beat out of techno music, it kind of sounds like Enya. *shrugs*

I had one hour of sleep, but I guess it was worth it, even if I do look lit. I'm at work, but nobody has really looked too carefully at my eyes, so it's all good ;)

:: Music: Hagfish - Happiness

So I'm in Washington, using my aunt's laptop, and I just registered for classes. 15 units, and hoping to add another class during open reg. Should be another busy, fun-filled semester.

I purchased 5 books at Elliott Bay Bookstore in Seattle. They are all Chuck Palahniuk novels, and they are all AUTOGRAPHED! The only novel not autographed there was Choke, and I already have it, so of course I didn't get it. I nearly died when I saw the rest of 'em. I had a huge grin on my face the whole day. Wait. It's still there ;D

:: Music: Kenny Chesney - She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy

This song is so awful that it's awesome.

I'm leaving for Seattle tomorrow evening. I'll be back on Wednesday. No idea what we're gonna do, but I hope it has something to do with drinking Seattle's Best coffee.

Cole: So I heard all your friends are getting boyfriends. Why are you single?
Kris: Um... b/c I'm a total loser?

Secret of Mana sucks, but it also kills. Louisa and I named our characters Milo and Cactus b/c we're just so cool like that. Riiiight... ;)

2022: russ is dumb
2022: it's not even funny
2022: you should date a nerdy nice guy
333: i don't like nerdy nice guys
2022: but nerdy nice guys are husband material
2022: it's just a fact
2022: nice guys finish last
333: i don't like that
333: i want someone who's a hooligan, but who's also kinda sweet, but manly, not metrosexual
2022: lol
2022: metrosexual is awesome!
2022: it means that he's enough of a girl for both of you
333: oh gross

you might think i'm trashy, a little too hardcore, but in my neck of the woods, i'm just the girl next door
Louisa alleges that I smell good. Yes, "good" in italics! Whoop!

Mike let me paint his nails black. Sweet! We played DDR + Karaoke Revolution. We both sang Hoobastank's "Crawling in the Dark" (yeah, the songs sucked) and I killed him by about a thousand points. ;)

These past few days have been marked with so much Nina that I thought she would have gotten sick of me by now. Not the case, apparently, as she invited me to shoot hoops with her at MHS. A pre-teen boy threw our ball down the hill. I chased after it while Nina picked a fight with him. Keep in mind that she's 5'3 and less than 100 lbs. I could hear her shouting from the bottom of the hill. *shrugs* We should have just stolen his skateboard.

L-Sa and Nina trapped me in a car with nothing but country music. I think I like it now. Oh my!

your lips taste of poison
We used to be French class buddies. We used to talk about BSB, the only thing we've ever really had in common. *shrugs* Irene's always been way cooler than I, or at least she was "popular", whereas I was the freakish "smart girl" with a chip on her shoulder. After months of silence, we finally contacted each other, and the results are somwhat appalling...

pixiekiss16: what kind of music u into now..
SweeTzK333: same as before... a mix of everything
SweeTzK333: i don't really like all that new music
pixiekiss16: what new music?
SweeTzK333: except the new Bad Religion and Descendents albums have been pretty good
pixiekiss16: i see thats cooooooll.
SweeTzK333: i'm not into Avril Lavigne, Dashboard Confessional, Simple Plan, and all that supposed alterna-punk crap that's on mtv now
pixiekiss16: the dashboard guy is fucking hot
SweeTzK333: i remember i saw him, like, four years ago
SweeTzK333: and my friend fell asleep

disco + dragons // bagels and bedheads
I love being a hooligan. I love causing trouble. Fortunately, I don't act like it.

I'm through with THAT guy. It wasn't worth it to begin with.

Justin likes John Mayer. He wouldn't let me paint his nails this morning when he was over here. Totally not cool. Vendetta? Yes!

xxpun kangEL86XX: oh. my. goodness.
HYPER GiRL K 333: hmmm?
xxpun kangEL86XX: doug is like, "you know you're the man when a dozen other xangas are doing the survey you just did"

xxpun kangEL86XX: okay, like, 12 hours
xxpun kangEL86XX: before him
HYPER GiRL K 333: eugenia took it off of mine
HYPER GiRL K 333: so maybe he saw hers?
HYPER GiRL K 333: *shrugs* doesn't matter
HYPER GiRL K 333: i'm not a popularity queen/whore anyway ;)
xxpun kangEL86XX: but SHE gave you credit
xxpun kangEL86XX: it's not popularity queen/whore, it's more like, HE'S WRONG
HYPER GiRL K 333: *shrugs*
HYPER GiRL K 333: he can't possibly be right all the time
xxpun kangEL86XX: ahhh, but he thinks he is
xxpun kangEL86XX: anyway, i'm a stubborn taurus, what do i know :-P
HYPER GiRL K 333: well, i'm not gonna get all up in his shiz and be like, "hey, yeah i KNOW the feeling. thanx for swiping it from me, even though i stole it from nina." ;)
xxpun kangEL86XX: LOL
xxpun kangEL86XX: that'd shock the shit outtah his pants
HYPER GiRL K 333: it would also make me the super bitch ;)
xxpun kangEL86XX: which would be super funny!

xxpun kangEL86XX: see, if i get it for Jon, it's like, killing two birds w/ one stone 'cuz i can watch it too... on my laptop ;-)

gonna raise hell
There's a rut, and I'm definitely stuck in it.

Yesterday/this morning was awesome. Too bad Teresa only gets 2 days here and has to go back to Davis tonight. I thought it was gonna be boring b/c we were supposed to bake, but then, with KriTerLou, it's never quite an ordinary day. We baked, went to Max's for the ultimate sugar coma, got called bikers by some dude in a suit, then went back to my place. They decided to sleep over. We didn't sleep much, though, as Cor finally got the Freaks & Geeks season 1 DVD set and I got them hooked. We watched 10 episodes. Seriously. That show should never have been cancelled. It's the funniest, most real portrayal of high school kids. It's true that almost anything that's halfway decent goes on the air, it's cancelled.

Sigh, Teresa won't be back until the end of July, which means KriTerLou won't be in action for a long time. Oh well. It's always fun being dorky with the people I love. ;) I got half an hour of sleep, and I'll be going to work looking like I'm lit. It's the true spirit of the freaks ;)

HARRY POTTER RULES!!! ...yeah, Cor bought advance tix for me and L-Sa yesterday. We went at the 12:30pm showing at Century 20 in Daly City. It was good - way better than the 2nd movie.

Afterwards, we went to my place. I painted her nails. Why? Well, her boyfriend is coming to 'illbrae on Monday, but apparently he's more girly than us, so we have to make an effort to appear more feminine. Sigh. There is nothing to do in SM County. We should just hang out in Berkeley or SF.

Ugh, JEPET tomorrow. Let's see if I can write well enough to pass the stupid thing...

"If you're gonna throw your life away for a boy, he'd better have a motorcycle!" L-Sa and I agree:
SweeTzK333: *smiles* he's buff ;)
chanlsky2022: omg
chanlsky2022: that reminds me of red dragon
SweeTzK333: but it's a nice tattoo... gotta admit that.. ;)
chanlsky2022: *drools* sweetness
chanlsky2022: dude, he looks so hot, he's so buff!!
SweeTzK333: *grins* unfortunately, he's a huffer...
SweeTzK333: rawr, he has a motorcycle...
chanlsky2022: MOTORCYCLE!
chanlsky2022: there so cool!!
SweeTzK333: gee, i'd make out with him... maybe... just for a ride on his motorcycle...
chanlsky2022: nah, you don't have to make out with him
chanlsky2022: he'll be happy to give you a ride since you'd have to grab onto him during the ride
SweeTzK333: mmm yeah... motorcycle... *drool*
SweeTzK333: motorcycle and buff... too bad he's a crackhead
chanlsky2022: just because he like to shove things up his nose doesn't mean nothing

Now would probably be a good time to puke into my dang gardenburger. Cutesy couples make me sick.

Maybe we really DO belong together. Scary thought.

Jason Kwan rented "Six String Samurai". Cor's never letting Jason pick a movie ever again. Apparently he watched it before. I dunno, though. It was actually pretty hilarious, and I learned that Death melts. Jason Park thought it was funny, too. Maybe Cor just has bad taste ;)

Jason Park's new car = *thumbs up* He drives like a maniac, but hey... niiiice car.

...and on Sunday night, I went out with Cor and Angela, and we realized once again why we always run to SF instead of hanging out in the SM area. It's sad when the bar a couple blocks from your house closes at 9:30pm. Luckily, Mike called, and he was parked outside my house with his new car. Yes, another new Toyota... sigh...

:: Music: Voetsek - Walk the Plank

Let the squealing commence. I just checked my grades (b/c y'know that's all I do until they're finally all in) and I got an A in microecon! I was expecting a B+, so that means I must have kicked some serious butt on the final. Squeal. Excited!

I just got back from work, and I have to work again tonight, and this whole weekend. Ok. Now I'm back to my normal, upset little self. ;)

I'm listening to the Disturbing the Peace comp... bay area bands. I've gotta say... I love Voetsek... "estrogen fueled hardcore". Good stuff.

No more throwing people in jail
and leaving them to rot
while the system makes a profit
and quotas met by cops
end the war on drugs
end the war on the people
Walk the plank

One more week and this will all be over. Thank goodness.

I'm angry. People are ignorant.

*shrugs* You know what's good? I finally found some radio that I like. PunkRadioCast got really lame, but New Disorder radio is my savior. Yep. All the New Disorder bands and the good bands that they distro. It makes me smile. I just heard Pirx the Pilot and American Steel. And I think I really like The Budgets.
