I was just being lazy/ busy and haven't written anything. That and most of my online time has been spent on www.polyvore.com . It's just amazing, a great way for me to feed my fashion obsession without obtaining any large amounts of credit. Here's some of my "sets"....
I LOVE it! Well, I've got to concentrate on painting my toenails, headin into the city tomorrow and going out with newly single Nick (long story including domestic violence and a whole loada drama). Peace!

The last few days have been kinda busy, so I haven't really found myself with time to blog. Thursday, I went into the city, and it was a shitshow . Pretty much 15 mins after we got to the club, Nick and Chris were fighting. We ended up leaving, things keep escalating, and the next thing I know Nicks going to the police. They didn't do anything, as I'm sure the NYPD has better things to do than mediate a gay couples fight. It's pretty funny in retrospect. Nick was real pissed so he came back to TR with me. Yesterday we went to go check out these nearby cranberry bogs. It was kinda cool, but we ended up with ticks even though we all used bug spray. Also, it isn't cranberry season yet, so the bog part wasn't really red. Anyway, today is ungodly hot. I got a cheapy above ground pool for the backyard, but I won't get it until Tuesday. Sucks. Kent, Nick and I have been just sitting around all day in the AC. I really wanna go see the Strangers. It looks scarry, and actually got good reviews. Well, I'm hot and bored and want to get some lunch, I just kinda felt like updating, even though I'm 99.9% positive that not a single person reads this. If I'm wrong, hit me up. Anyway, stay cool.

What? Tornados in NJ? Apparently so. I'm on tornado watch today. It's pretty cloudy, and a little bit windy, but I have yet to have my roof sucked off. I feel just a little ripped off.
Something completely unrelated... I saw a disturbing commercial today. At first watch, it blew my mind. I still always think of songs like "Who's got the crack" or "Steak for Chicken" when I hear the Moldy Peaches, not kids on water slides. As if the whole Juno thing wasn't bad enough. Seriously, why is it that all my favorite bands are in commercials? Of Montreal, Justice, Chromeo, The Apples In Stereo, Cat Power and the list goes on. I found this article on the subject. While I do think commercials in some ways increase expose, I myself having downloaded tons of songs after hearing them in Apple ads or other random commercials. What I don't agree with is re - writing the lyrics. I understand that they're trying to make a buck, but as a true fan I can't help but cringe when I hear jingles like "Let's go Outback tonight". In this particular case, I find I don't even enjoy listening to the original song anymore, which used to be a sunny - day favorite. Since this Moldy Peaches tune was already ruined by Juno, I guess I don't have anything to fear. I should just be thankful that the music in commercials in something that I actually like.
Anyway, I'm off to the city tomorrow, but I'm less than excited. It's supposed to be rainy and crappy. I think I might take the bus or make Kent drive. I just don't wanna deal with like the Parkway and Turnpike and traffic and gas and all that bull. I got a bike to simplify, and there's always busses and trains. I want to trade my rabbit in for a hybrid, but it's not financially responsible on my part. If I wait a few years, hybrids will probably be more prevalent, and cheaper!
