This is where I work now. Its a lot of fun. I went from working 2 days a wekk to 6 days a week, which is rough.. but I like both my jobs and I certainly don’t mind the extra moneys! yeah moneys!

no computer :(

So, last week my comptuer finally died.. it won’t even turn on. Its hard to update this without a computer but with Coco on her way to Italy I can abuse hers until my new one makes it here.. aprox sept 22 (gross).
I got a powerbook, graduation present from Mom and Dad I should be helping to pay for, but instead I got a new camera yesterday! Its not the 5D I need but the Canon Powershot S5 will have to do for now. It doesn’t seem too bad for a photoshoot and at $325, 8mp and a pretty decent chip it’ll tide me over.. it even has a hot shoe so I can get the connector and use it with my lights – yeah suckas! Though I still need to get a stupid SD card for it.. you probably won’t see too many pictures from it until after my trip 10/08/07. HELLS CANYON! WOOOOO!
OH YEAH! ALSO!
I’m a barista now!
Mark hooked me up with a coffee job down the street from where he works. It’s called Jupiter Outpost and it’s only got Cindy the lady who owns the place, Liz and I working there. I’ve only worked two days so far and know nothing about coffee, but I’m learning. Milk’s the hardest.. I’m starting to get it. Practice makes perfect. It’s just been so damn slow when I work in the afternoon that no one even orders drinks for me to practice on! WOOF! But yeah.. its the perfect 2-3 day super relaxed supplement to my nannying. Now if only I would try to get some jobs doing damn editorial work like I’m supposed to.

microchips!


Bob Barker should have added onto his great spay and nueter speech towards the end – get your effing cats and dogs microchipped! It’s only like $20 at just about any vet these days.. espcially in cats! They sneak get outdoors at any chance and yes you NEED to have the quick release collars – so all they need to do is get caught on something and your cat is effing lost! We found a cat the other night in the back alley who was obviously a fat old housecat that got out and no form of identification.

I had to deal with crazys on craigslist and eventually just let it go out back, but I wanted to bring it home. Get your damn pet microchipped.

Okay okay so I do need to update Roxie’s to Chicago but at least they’ll still be able to contact me.

King Of Kong

So this is my first post I’m making kind of drunk. Mark KC and PAIGE are playing with card in the other room. I suck at cards! Paige is moving here – AWESOME! She got a sweet job for a lawn and garden trade magazine. We had a good non-vegan brunch today in which I desecrated Bowen’s cinnamon rolls with non-vegan ingredients. But what i really want to talk about is the movie KING OF KONG! Holy crap this was a damn fine movie. I don’t want to give too much away but this guy yeah that motherfucker! Billy Mitchell! He’s a mother fucker! He’s a big asshole bully! In the video game world! Fucking Donkey Kong even has smartass pompous bullies. Like, he’s a real life bad guy! AND don’t look at this until after you’ve seen the movie but it’s a dumb followup. But see the movie ASAP because it was highly enjoyable. I’m going back to the real world. Or looking at knitting patterns. Whatever.

silly creature

If you walk to the south west corner or Melrose and Leavitt and go just a bit south, you may be lucky enough to come across this silly creature!

The pictures from my phone are awful but yes that is a mohawk and yes its tounge stays out of its mouth at all times. WOAH!
