As no one here seemed to know who the hell Patty Hearst is (or at least on saturday night they didn't), I have added a second costume to the repertoire:

Yeah, this is going to be entirely too easy. Pictures coming um...sometime after Wednesday.

I'm bored, when can we start drinking? Where is my art director? Here's a meme:

"These are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing's users (as of today). As usual, bold what you have read, italicize those you started but couldn't finish, and strike through what you couldn't stand. Add an asterisk to those you've read more than once. Underline those on your to-read list."

I'm not sure what "unread" means, maybe it means hey, I can't read this book it's too thick, or maybe it means why the hell would I ever read this book. I'm thinking it means both, otherwise why would "Wicked" be on there. Isn't that chick lit?

There's really no way around the look you're going to get when the dentist asks "have you been flossing". There's no way around it, I floss every day and I still get the look. (The floss isn't working anymore, I'm going to have to step it up a notch.) I have my first cavity, I'm going to have my first filling in a few weeks. The dentists here are cold and to-the-point, I'm used to the sort that are my parents' friends. The kind that I grew up carpooling with. There's something to be said for growing up in a town where everyone knows everyone, something very calming to be said for that, is all I'm saying.

I have so much to do before my art director leaves on Friday. He's going to work in Pittsburgh, I'm going to have to find a new art director. Or maybe I should go work in Pittsburgh, too. I've never been there. Yet another sight unseen. Like Honolulu, or Prague. I'm halfway through a script that's never going to be finished.

I can't stop listening to Andrew Bird. This is fantastic stuff, you guys.

Four Score and Seven Beers Ago...

One of my favorite things about Halloween is how the costume shops have managed to sexify every single women's costume ever. I was just in one to pick up my hearst-machinegun and I think my favorite one was "Sexy Bee". Anyways, a great idea for next year (note to self) is: Sexy Civil War Re-enactors. Yeah, we thought of that after the fact.

What's your favorite over-sexified women's halloween costume?

I finally meadered down to the fashion show mall and purchased an ipod, a nano, a mint-green nano ipod that I named "the rural juror". Because I am a little obsessed. Now I just need I guess an itrip, even though the static on those things in the las vegas area is ridiculous.

Isn't "the fashion show mall" the dumbest name for anything ever? I think so.

Everyone had car issues this week. Erin had a small oil fire under hers, and my art director was in an accident but he's ok. And by "everyone" I mean "two people". I just watched the aqua teen movie, which was funny but would have been funnier if I had, ya know, been on painkillers. But I guess that could be said of anything. I love that Tina Fey had one line at the very end, the only female voice in the entire movie. Oh hey, last night I saw Rilo Kiley at the Joint, here are a few pictures. (note how me and J.Lew have the exact same hair):

Are you guys listening to "In Rainbows"? Cause this is good stuff.

No, I'm not going to upload it, go the site and get the download you cheap bastards. This ain't no communist state.*

*it kind of is, a little.

Oh and also, this is probably my favorite thing that's been on a Family Guy episode since god knows when:

Oh hello, it's monday. Cue the monkey posters that say I HATE MONDAYS. But really! I have so much work to do here at work! I had one of those weekends where all the dramatic action happened after I left the scene. Like some serious shit. The combination of anger and stupidity is the worst cocktail ever, and it sure does floweth freely. Anyways. ANYWAYS. Here's some pictures that have nothing to do with the aforementioned anything:

Saturday night we did this bachelorette thing for a friend of mine, I took some pictures. Actually, I took a lot of pictures but I'm only going to post the somewhat interesting ones here.

This dude was trying out a move that one of my friends recognized FROM THAT MYSTERY SHOW ABOUT PICKING UP WOMEN. So hilarious. This town = douchebaggery central.

Here's a bonus picture of my office window:
