Harry Potter (the latest one) "I love magic!"
Truly, Madly, Deeply--Alan Rickman not being Snape
My Life Without Me--tres touchant, nice music too
Ray--this man was a PIMP (also great music)
Pulp Fiction (on the big screen)--hadn't seen it in forever and so good to see not stoned. I *got* it a lot more!
The music is awesome, love the banana slug t-shirt John Travolta wears, love his strut, love all of Samuel L. Jackson's lines, Amanda Plummer, Eric Stoltz, Maria de Meideros (blueberry pancakes chick). I could go on and on.

Want to see Harry Potter again!, Wedding Crashers, Capote, Narnia

Subject:Karaoke again
Mood: awake

At the Galaxy:

Did America by Neil Diamond with Michael, who is a true karaoke rockstar.
Was going to do Faith with Sarah but some bastard did it before us and we were at the end of the queue anyway and then Sarah left...so that was a bust!
Also did It's Hard to Be Humble without ever really hearing it. That sucked...at least I wasn't alone. :)

Another one to do next time:

If I Can't Have You by Yvonne Elliman (from Saturday Night Fever soundtrack)--a great song and it's only 3 minutes!

Saw Peak Oil tonight--a movie everyone should see

Saw Gimme Shelter at Clinton Street last night--a movie that not everyone necessarily has to see but a good one. Features Mick Jagger in all his fucking gorgeous glory.

Songs I have sung at karaoke:

Feel Like Makin' Love--Bad Company
Cold as Ice--Foreigner
Patience--Guns 'N Roses
You've Got to Hide Your Love Away--Beatles

Songs I would like to sing:

Rod Stewart--anything as long as I'm wearing the wig and I somewhat know the words
Make It With You--Bread
Amie-Pure Prairie League (Listen to Goin' South)
Take it to the Limit--Eagles

I'm thinking about dyeing my hair for my upcoming birthday--RED...
or just buying a wig and wearing it for that day. I'm very excited. A wig would be a more economical and less-risky endeavor.

Subject:My Color
Mood: calm

you are yellow

Your dominant hues are red and green, so you're definately not afraid to get in and stir things up. You have no time for most people's concerns, you'd rather analyze with your head than be held back by some random "gut feeling".

Your saturation level is very high - you are all about getting things done. The world may think you work too hard but you have a lot to show for it, and it keeps you going. You shouldn't be afraid to lead people, because if you're doing it, it'll be done right.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

Mood: chipper

First of all, let me say that I love boxing the moments of my (seemingly) unending life into tidy little pieces of information, labeled with bouncy faces describing my emotions. Sweet.

I'm eating Mike and Ike Original Fruits candies, finishing off the box and drinking a Bud Light. Life it good. I worked 8 hours today and then did 3 hours of ESL volunteering, came home, ate a nice pasta dinner, cooked by Tony, and now I have the house to myself. I feel more relaxed than the last time I wrote, although shoulders feel a bit tense. Massage? anyone? anyone?

Subject:Don't Believe Everything You Think
Mood: hopeful

So here I am. I wanted to call a friend but the friend I really want to call lives back East where it's now almost 11pm so I won't do that. I'm still trying to transition down (that sounds weird) from the work day. I did Session 2, Week 1 of Marathon Training today. Cool people and a good workout. I'm still in my workout clothes, in fact, which feels good for some reason. It's a reminder, I guess. But but but the reason I'm writing is because I'm feeling a little hyper and anxious, like I can't calm down, a little panicked. I'm trying to take deep breaths. This pretty much happens to me every day when I come home from work. It takes me a long time to relax. I go through my whole day and think about what I did wrong and then think of possible things that I COULD have done wrong, and finally, things that I could have left undone or fires that will be burning in the building, caused by me, by the time I return tomorrow morning. I think if it were up to me, I would stay at work 24/7 so I could always be in control and know what was going on. Is that what this anxiety comes down to? Is it a control thing? I think it's a perfectionism thing, really. I've actually gotten a lot better. I rationalize through the whole thing by telling myself that it's just a job, that I'm allowed to make mistakes, that even if I made a mistake, it would be OK, that even if I made a BIG mistake, it would still be OK. The worst that could happen is I would get fired and then in that case, that would be OK too, I guess. I think what's harder for me to accept, though, is making a mistake and then having to go back there and LIVE through it. I almost would rather get fired than have to deal with whatever I'd done. Man! Doesn't this make you wonder how I make it through one fucking day? I do too. I feel my shoulders getting totally tense thinking about all this, but I feel myself relaxing and decompressing at the same time. A bath would be sweet right now, but I can't because of the nipples. It will be 2 months soon and then maybe Jesse will say I'm safe. They've healed pretty quickly. I'm glad I did them. Now I feel like I'm writing just for the possibility that someone will read this. I feel like I'm showing off now. Who cares? OK, let's just get back to the pity party, shall we? It might be over...I think it is. More deep breaths. I'm going to read the Food Pages. That always makes me feel good. One more thing, the problem with my being anxious and reactive is that when big things actually happen, things that need my concentration and attention, I'm totally not equipped to deal, in fact, I'm worn out completely. I must conserve my strength for true disasters. I think of a bumper sticker I saw on a near-by van (that I think people sleep in): Don't believe everything you think. Good Advice.

Romantic movie! You probably won't star in a porno
anytime soon. You seem to be really into the
whole "love" thing...romantic sex
with perfumed sheets and candles all over the
place. You're probably a hopeless romantic. You
value sex and respect your partner too much to
do anything like porn. AWWWWWW! <3

What kind of porno would you star in?

Subject:up late and loving it
Mood: energetic

So I'm finally updating this thing. I'm so glad to be back in Portland after going home to San Pedro. Things are rolling with pdx.edu and I have my job at Penitrode again. I like Tony's bread a lot and I've been loving spending time with Annie and Dodge, coming up with crazy art ideas and being one half of the double D team w/Dodge and modeling and practicing French with Annie. I think I've created a WONDERFUL life for myself here (Andy Dick reference). I took my first Excel class and loved it. It's so easy and cool and cute. Yea! And the class was free. I'm really excited about going back to school because I'll be back in that cushy student world again with health centers and free public transportation, fresh new books, gym, student events, all the perks. I just love it all. See how I'm going overboard already? :) I think it will be good and it's hard to believe that it's now for my masters degree. That is so cool. God I sound like a big gushing idiot. I also want to volunteer and eventually dj on kpsu. That is one of the things on my major list of things to do before I die: be a dj. I have already learned how to parallel park (quite well I might add). I still want to learn how to iron properly (! I am a true housewife!), drive stick shift, go to Japan, learn to speak German, and have a baby. Those are the major life goals for right now. I have been thinking about the name Simone for a girl but pronounced how they do in Germany which is tsimona. A boy will be William for Tony's dad. What else? I found an old letter today from my Aunt Dottie and Uncle Seymour, talking about how my family is originally from Yussi, Russia and Galatzia, Romania. I want to look those places up and go there someday. I hope they're not little villages that were totally destroyed by pogroms.

I have to start working on my plans for Passover. Both sides of the family are planning to come up, as well as Bubbe. I think it will be so fun. OK, so long.

Subject:Chocolate Santa Candies

Here I am again. I was thinking of a lot of things I could write earlier but they're all gone now. I was wishing I had access to a computer 24/7 so I could write down EVERYTHING I think of but then nah...
See how I'm extreme?
Other thoughts about all of this: who is the this meant for? Me? Friends? Complete strangers? The uncertainty of this both attracts me and bothers me. See, I'm so self-conscious that I'm going to spend my whole time thinking about what other people are thinking and analyzing myself. Whew! I guess I'll get over that. I just need to get this all out of my system. I keep wondering who the fuck is reading this, if anyone!

Subject:one more thing
Mood: satisfied

I just had to say that being unemployed is difficult because you don't have any real structure in your life that you get from a regular job. This live journal thing could be really good for me because it makes me feel in control! I just changed all my settings and it was so fun and satisfying. Wow!
