because i feel like being grrry....

random post, it's late and i've had an odd day.

might not teach skating again after this week...kinda not ready for that really. raaarr1

also not in the mood for complete sentences...who needs them anyways..same with capitals...down with capital letters! they just slow you down.

and while i'm at it-a big f-u to grammar.

sorry, don't ask...

recent disscussions on writing and the formation of our writing group, have made me remember how much i used to express my self with words. i'd lost that. i'd like to get it back

i don't write much on this blog because i kinda don't like sharing my inner voice with people. i've been trying too hard to refine it somehow but it's just not working for me. so screw that, back to being something else? sure that's what we'll call it.

well then, i'm gonna try to sleep so that i can wake up at a reasonable hour and finish my report cards before the concert i'm going to tomorow. i'll probably be much happier after tomorow cause right now, feeling a little icky. yeah dancing! yeah peter hook! yeah new order and british synth! hopefully...

For you tomato haters

Neil Gaiman's blog has an interesting post about a movie website that was unjustly suing him for linking to their site. Apparently he didn't even link to the site, his only conection was that a different site had linked to a picture of him holding a demonic tomato. Neil's rant about the absurdity of him being sued is quite amusing and definately worth reading.

The site that did have a link to this movie website however is also quite amusing. I quite enjoyed shooting the tomatoes in the shooting game they have despite the fact that i really have nothing against tomatoes. In fact i really don't understand why people don't like tomatoes so much. They're good for you and they taste good. I dated a guy who really violently hated tomatoes. His reasoning(which was not really reasoning) was that they are filthy seed bags. WOW, that explains a lot more about him then why he doesn't like them. My experience with him and his hatred for the fruit have made me wonder about the link between food tastes and other personality traits.

My ex was some kind of type A personality. No offense to other people i know who hate tomatoes but most people i've met who don't like them are pretty uptight or crazy. My ex's friend told him that his hatred for tomatoes was misogynistic because tomatoes are basically ovaries, which seems valid if you knew the guy and had heard his rants about the "demonic fruit". I have not heard a good explanation for the hatred. i can understand not liking the slimyness of the seeds or the taste even, but i've yet to hear a decent reasoning for outright hatred of a fruit. Seriously now, what have tomatoes done to you? Really....now bananas ....that's a whole other issue.

Vegas Baby!

As promised I took lots of pictures. Including one of me with a drink from Quarks. My waiter's name was Lazarus. The drink is Called a Borg Sphere, it tasted sort of like apple but mostly like vodka. This place was great. We had some appy's that were decent and got to see an alien wondering around the place randomly for photo ops. I chose to ignore him. This was on my second day of the trip after I had already spent the day at the bar and beverage convention.

The convention was everything I expected it to be. Lot's of free booze, some free food samples, lots of T&A and lots of drunk morons whom I managed to avoid pretty easily. I got to pretend to be in the industry and had my badged scanned a few times. The best was the guy from Vamp, this drink brand from Transylvania. They have pink vodka, wine and an energy drink that tastes like cherry. Lot's of cool drinks were drunk by me who managed to actually survive the day without being hit on or feel sick. That doesn't mean I didn't get leered at or almost feel sick though.

I spent lost of time walking the strip with my dad. Saw most of the big hotels. Walked inside a few of them. Saw the volcanoe erupt, watched the lions at MGM, did a little bit of gambling but i was pretty uncomfortable with that so i stuck to the lower priced slot machines.

So much more to say about the trip but I'm not in the right place for it today. I'll try to say more later. My pics are on the flicker site if you want to see more.
