Sudden Crave For Ramen

Hmm... why does this song sound so familiar?



Wait a minute...



YOU RAPED MY CHILDHOOD, SNSD!

Quick, I need something to un-depress me!



Ahh, that's better.

I'm Jack Bauer



How do they get away with this stuff? I love you Japan, but you had me at "hentai."

...

Diana and I bought Disneyland passes on a whim, with no planning whatsoever.* We've gone three times in three weeks, all on weekdays. It was packed EVERY SINGLE TIME. Don't you people have stuff to do? Like work? Or taking care of your kids?**

We still haven't been to California Adventure though.

...

It's absolutely hilarious that on the same day that Diana received a very significant raise in her salary, I lost my job. Granted, it was a long time coming and I wasn't surprised at all. They told me they would contact me if they had something available at a different location. Now I can fully concentrate on my studies.

Right after I beat Diana's score in Bejeweled.



*That's the way we seem to operate 95% of the time.
**Yes, I'm impervious to hypocrisy.



oh I'm so clever, I'm so clever, I'm so clever

Don't Mess With Demons

The strangest little thing happened tonight, right after we got home from watching PARANORMAL ACTIVITY (great movie, BTW).

While Diana was turning on the A/C and closing the windows (it gets hot up here on the 4th floor) in the living room, I went in to our bedroom -- turned on the lights, closed the patio door, then took off my glasses and laid it on top of the dresser. That's when I realized that my MP3 player was on. Its display screen was brightly lit, like it had just been turned on (the screen goes black after awhile to save battery life, even if the music is still playing). The thing is, it's pretty difficult to turn the player on and off. It doesn't use a button, it has this sliding thing on its side that you have to hold down for about 3 seconds to power it on or off. So there's almost no way it could've accidentally turned on by itself, even if something were to hit it.

I guess it doesn't sound too scary now that I've typed it out, but I gotta say, Diana FREAKED OUT when I told her, especially because we had just watched a movie about this sort of thing.

Now she's going to watch PETER PAN on DVD to clear up her head before she tries to fall asleep.

I think I'll join her.

6.what's happened to this blog, once a magnificent creature bursting with life, fun anecdotes about movies, music, and pop culture, now consisting of posts about movie nights and Youtube clips.




I've been meaning to resurrect this puppy for several months now, yet I had no work to show for it. Until now, bitches.



"Oh how clever. He complains about Youtube clips then immediately posts another one." You think that's clever? It's called "he's out of ideas."

Wait, where was I? I really need to get this ADD thing sorted out. If I would just remember to write this down or get it tattooed to remind my... OOH LOOK A KITTEH!



To quote Andy's future wife (sorry Sharon): "Oops I did it again."

I'm really getting sidetracked here. What the hell was I going to write about? Think, dammit. Stop getting high off dried mangoes (ZOMG DELISH) and think!

...

How can I ever write a screenplay when I can't even write a single coherent post on my pathetic blog?

...

My all-sugar diet isn't going so well. It's going straight to my medulla oblongata.

...

Okay, let's start nice and easy. Let's get updated on what's happened since my last significant and meaningful post. Baby steps.

(fell asleep going through old posts; I think I got to October of 2008 before my eyelids gave up)

Screw the old stuff, let's just talk about what's been happening lately.

marriage: Got tied to ball and chains back in August. Sorry, ladies. Actually, I think the guys were more upset. Pictures are up on Facebook because putting them on here is just redundant hard redundant.

job: My hours at HP (which were already low to begin with) got severely cut sometime in the summer due to number of reasons. Coincidentally, they all sound like "recession." I've been looking for another job, but in case you haven't heard - "recession." So I've decided to study and get myself certified by Microsoft (MCDST) so my resume would look a little less crappy.

school: Because the wedding was so close to the start of the fall semester, I missed the first week of school, and wasn't able to add the classes I wanted. So in bitter defeat, I've been playing WoW I've decided to study and get myself certified by Microsoft (MCDST) so my resume would look a little less crappy. Whoa, was that a glitch in the matrix?

church: Roy is leaving because ha hates us. Can't really blame him. Not everyone appreciates BATTLESTAR GALACTICA like he does. (except me) All joshing aside, I appreciate everything he's done for our EM and wish him luck in grad school and his future endeavors. I hope the new pastor isn't a cylon.

fantasy basketball: New season is about to begin pretty soon, and we just had our rookie/trash draft last night. I didn't pick up anyone I really wanted, and my team is still looking mildly horrendous. As long as I can beat David, I won't cry myself to sleep.

That'll do for now. I gotta keep my (two) readers wanting more. Let's hope my next real post isn't in 2010.

Movie Night #26


  • Synopsis: As the Korean peninsula falls into the hands of Japanese imperialists and countless Koreans seek refuge in the vast wilderness of Manchuria, a determined thief, a coldblooded hitman, and a mysterious bounty hunter all vie for an elusive map that could lead them to buried treasure from the Qing Dynasty. (from fandango.com)
  • What happened to Movie Night #25? That was last month. What, were you not invited?
  • A Korean western? Really? I guess Americans should stop making martial arts flicks, then.*
  • When: 10/10, 8:30PM.


*They really should, actually. Did you know that there's a remake of THE KARATE KID in the works? And it's called KUNG FU KID, stars Jackie Chan in the Mr. Miyagi role (renamed Mr. Han) and Will Smith's little boy as the titular (lol) kid? Kill me now.
