Has anyone seen the BMW commercial with the weimaraner??
It's bugging me I cannot find out any information on it. I think it could be a William Wegman dog, but I'm not sure. If it's not it sure is a copy cat of his work on things like Sesame Street and whatnot.

My life feels kind of dull and boring right now so I'm going to talk about something that is in the near future and exciting too me (the most exciting thing is going to Seattle, but since that is not until August, I'll write about that later).

Camp Westminster.

I will be going on a three day camping trip that will allow me to canoe, sail, and generally relax in a place that is fun and peaceful. I'm staying in the Wakeya which is basically four walls, a roof, and a door. No running water or bathrooms, we are trooping a quarter of a mile for showers and such. This may sound like a bad time for some, but for me, I NEED this.

I think the most exciting part is being away from everything, clearing my mind, and not having to worry about a thing.

In the wee hours of the morning, have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror?

If so, have you ever thought everything looked just fine and then while in the bathroom at your work in the afternoon notice that your white shirt isn’t as thick as you thought, and your black bra is visible through the fabric?
Am I alone here?

If not, WHO ARE YOU? Never mind, I know who you are, you are those people in my class that make me GAG because of your bad body odor and your yellow teeth.

On the bright side, At least I’ll only be considered slutty and not smelly.

"And then Tom slapped me right across the face because I uttered the words "meme" and "blog" out loud and also because I wasn't paying attention. He shouted at me, in his little leprechaun voice, "I WANT THE TRUTH!" And I had to tell him he probably couldn't handle the truth but that he did have me at hello. Cruise was not amused, let me tell you. He may have two, soon to be three, sham marriages under his belt, but that little man does not play."

-From the mouth of "The Hot Librarian"

It made my day.

When the day is done
Down to earth then sinks the sun
Along with everything that was lost and won
When the day is done

When the day is done
Hope so much your race will be all run
Then you find you jumped the gun
Have to go back where you began
When the day is done

Warning: Nekkid Bottoms will appear as you scroll!*

*I didn't feel the need to blur them, because I don't know of any small children who come to my blog and I don't think anyone would be really offended by nekkid protesters.




Here is... well.. I'm not suppose to tell you anymore. I didn't realize that I couldn't... The thought never occurred to me. I was informed otherwise, but isn't a beautiful building?! :)(Someone is so going to google me and I'm going to be in such deep S***)I should learn something from The Hot Librarian.

Next is a list of clues (X marks the spot?):

The picture was taken from this building:


Which is the Smith Building, the most famous typewriter created was the Smith Typewriter.

The people in the building DEFINITELY DO NOT dress like this:


This seems to be something they only do in Canada....

And last but not least, it is absolutely NO WHERE NEAR this landmark:



Happy guessing!

Your IQ Is 125

Your Logical Intelligence is Exceptional
Your Verbal Intelligence is Genius
Your Mathematical Intelligence is Exceptional
Your General Knowledge is Exceptional



But I really got the link here.

Kind of sad.. only one Genius.. I told Nishant a long time ago that I took an IQ test and it only reached 120 (I'm glad in 4 years it raised a whole 5 points)... He took one and it reached MENSA Level... obviously we know who is the smarter of the two of us.

I think it would be interesting for me to take the real one now after 4 years of learning subject matter.

From "Trivial Matters"

1. Volume of Books(owned) and Music(stolen)?
Volume of books owned… that’s a tough one, I either do the library or I buy the ones I really want to read. If they go on the “really want to read” list and afterwards on the “really want to keep” list then I have them still. If they get put on the “Not as good as I thought” list, then I usually sell them so that someone else can maybe enjoy them more. So in my time I have owned or possessed thousands of books, but today I only own maybe 40 or so.

Music stolen… Well, funny story with that too… I had 8,000 stolen songs and a virus and then I had a new hard drive. After the new hard drive I had 1,000 songs, then a virus, saved the hard drive, saved my 999 songs, reformatted the hard drive, vowed to never download again. So I have 999 songs, but about 9,000 over years.

2. Last book/Cd I bought ?
The last book I bought was “The Body Farm” by Patricia Cornwell. It wasn’t the best book I’ve ever read, but it wasn’t bad either. It will probably get sold, but right now it is being borrowed by someone so I can’t sell it.

The last CD I bought was Nora Jones, but that was for someone else, but then that person bought me Madeleine Peyroux recently, so I would say my most recent CD is Madeleine Peyroux, which is absolutely fabulous, and I’m going to go listen to it as soon as I get done writing this.

3. Books/Songs That Mean a Lot to Me.
It’s funny, the book that means the most to me is regarded ordinary in India (I have the inside information from Nishant’s family) and is virtually unknown in the US of A except for those really in tune with their world as a whole (not as in their world America). So to have read “The God of Small Things” here (and enjoyed it), you would have to be someone who understood cultures of other countries and not have been afraid of them, and to have read it in India it seems you agree with a political view and not an idea. To me “The God of Small Things” by Arundhati Roy touches me someplace I never knew I had. Americans (generally speaking) do not care about a complete stranger on the street, or the way the dew falls on a spider’s web, or understand how tradition sometimes is more important than a cause, or how sometimes you have to be hard in life so that you can be soft when it counts. I, as an American, was taught to run from the strangers, to tear down the spider’s web, to laugh at my mother, and to be completely independent and cut off from everyone but myself. Only now in my early twenties have I realized that I have the freedom to make my own choices no matter how hard they are, that it is my choice in the end and no one can tell me differently. That is why I love this book. I think though in India, Arundhati Roy is regarded as about as highly as Newt Gingrich is regarded here. I’m not sure, I’d like to find out though…
Other books, “The Fountainhead” by Ayn Rand, "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck, and maybe “To Dance with Kings” by someone who I forget at the moment… I just remember the vivid storytelling of it.

Music... well... I can’t say there is any one particular song. Lots of music has influenced me and changed me, but I could not pin it on one particular song that means more to me than others. My favorite song though is Etta James “At Last”

I am in Seattle.
I love it here.
They have called for rain everyday I am here and so far, it hasn't rained once.

So odd.

For those of you who are curious about Amazon.com here is a little info about the company.

Amazon.com expanded so fast that they didn't have time to build a building to house there overflow, so they rented out a hospital that had moved.

Amazon.com is located on Beacon Hill in Seattle, which has to be one of the biggest hills I've ever seen.

It looks like a fortress in the sky. As you drive towards it, it looms up over you in its 20 story height and it's impressive orange-red color.

It is simply breath taking...


(I'll have a picture soon.)

Today I got a hit from someone who was searching for "Ass cheeks in skirt."

Read between the lines
What's fucked up and everything's
alright
Check my vital signs
To know I'm still alive and I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone



My long gone roommate, just announced today that a new subleaser will move in with us.... Today.

My still roommate is upset, I'm getting upset now because I didn't realize that my long gone roommate doesn't even know this person and that the person is moving in TODAY.
And now no one cares about Ethics and Morals, and I'm doing the same now.

Wish me luck tonight.
