Happy (FREE) Birthday to ME!

For those of you that don't know yet, my 25th birthday will be next Thursday, April 7th. Earlier this week I got a nice e-mail from the people at Zentra.

(click the title of this post for their site)

It is a club in downtown Chicago and they want to give me a free birthday party. YAY ME! Included is a table reservation for 15+, free champagne, free shots for me all night, and free drinks for everyone in the party from 9-10. The party is set for Friday, April 8th, 2005 at 9pm. So, if you are in Chicago that weekend and would like to come, e-mail me mcmillin@gmail.com before Wednesday to get on the list. I can't guarantee anything about the club as I have not been there before. But, if nothing else, it's free drinks for an hour...and we can always hit the better clubs on Halsted after that. :)

We're Going Down!

So, last Saturday morning there was a plane crash near the Purdue University Airport. From news reports I learned that the plane was owned by Lafayette Aviation. I happen to have a good friend and ex-room mate that worked there, so I gave her a call. Turns out I knew the pilot. We had a brief (one night) fling a few years ago that I had almost forgotten about until Mollie reminded me. Rumors are running rampant, but the general concensus is that it most likely wasn't an accident. Anyway, you are now up to date for the actual story.

I went with Lynn to get haircuts on Monday night and decided to go to Where Else? for quarter beer night with some friends. It sounds only slightly worse than it actually is, but you can buy a case of beer for $10 (including tip). So we're standing around playing cards and Lynn and I start talking about Dustin (the kid that died) when she (drunkenly) belts out, "Well, you're the one that fucked him!" Evidently our conversation was interesting enough for the girl behind us to comment to me, "EEWWWW, you fucked that dead guy?" To which I responded, "Well, he wasn't dead at the time, so I was OK with it." She thinks for a minute and says, "Yeah, but he's dead now, that's so gross." All I could come back with was, "Are you dead yet? 'Cause I am really through with you."

(I know, not the best come back...but she was a dumb bitch and I was inebriated...it was the best I could do.)

P.S. I do not, actually, think it is gross at all. He looked better in a Speedo than anyone else I have seen in real life.

Don't Be That Guy...

I've been meaning to blog about this for a while and something in my last post reminded me about it.
'One of those people that watches those kinds of movies.'
I learned a very good life lesson from a very bad movie. I hope at least some of you have seen PCU with Jeremy Piven. If you remember, there is a scene where Gutter is going to a concert and Droz sees him wearing the bands T-shirt. In a moment that changed my life Droz says, "What's this? You're gonna wear the shirt of the band you're gonna go see? Don't be that guy!"

I have spent the last 11 years of my life making decisions based on that line...Do I wanna be THAT GUY? Almost always the answer is no. Should I have another drink? No, I don't wanna be THAT GUY that throws up in the bathroom at the bar. Should I flirt with this man-whore in the bar? No, I don't wanna be THAT GUY that gets some in the bathroom at the bar. OK, I am both of those guys...but sometimes it works.

Should I drink tonight when I have to work tomorrow at 1. Yeah, I can be THAT GUY, I am ok with that. Should I buy a round of drinks I can't really afford when a cute guy comes up to the table. Yeah, I wanna be THAT GUY, and he'll at least thank me, and we could hit it off. Should I eat a big breakfast and then go shopping at Field's with my friends? No, I don't wanna be THAT GUY...I'll leave that up to Ami. (by the way, did we ever figure out what died in your ass?)

So, it's not a perfect science, but a good guideline. Next time you need to make a decision, just ask yourself, "Do you wanna be THAT GUY?

(by the way THAT GUY should be pronounced in all italic CAPS.)

Spontaneous Combustion is Real...

...and it's about to happen to me. I feel like I am getting much better after a low this morning, but now I am getting a fever. That doesn't give me confidence that I will be in tip-top shape for work at 10 in the morning. I've not known fevers to signal the end of an illness.

I get a second chance to watch American Idol tonight since they screwed up the voting last night. I dug my way out of my self-imposed coma for just long enough to hear 2 performers last night. I know I wasn't looking pretty, but they both sounded BAD!

Oh, another thing...Has anyone else seen 'Swept Away'? The one with Madonna? Am I the only one that likes it? I saw it last night and actually enjoyed it. Madonna acts horribly, as usual...but I think I would like to see the original now. And everyone should watch 'Elephant' by Gus Van Sant. Don't worry if you don't get it...just watch it, it'll make you feel like 'one of those people that watches those kinds of movies'. And, it's only 80 minutes long...you can do it.

WOOHOO and Loop de Loop

I am DayQuil'ed, NighQuil'ed and Zinc'ed beyond an inch of my life. It might be all the medication, but Donny Darko might be the best movie ever. I cried once, and laughed once...That's pretty good in my book. Nothing else exciting right now. I get to take more medicine in 1 hour and 8 minutes...I can hardly wait.

But, I don't wanna go to school, Mommy!

Mommy's not here to care. Unless she got a heaven telegram that I am sick, Mommy doesn't give a shit.
Dear Kim STOP Your baby boy is sick STOP He thinks his head is going to 'splode and he will die STOP
I am horribly, horribly sick and I not only think my head is gonna 'splode and kill me, I would be OK with it. I have to go return a DVD first, and get some medicine, then I can die.

Watch out kids, the Inferno is HOT this week.

Wow, I knew Beth was a bitch, but Tonya is caRAYzay...she was crazy in Chicago, too, though. I love a good girl fight, but I would mess a bitch up if she messed with my shit. The rest of the episode was fairly boring...except the badasses won another $10,000. 3rd mission in a row.

Nothing else new and exciting tonight, but stop by and visit my new blog-friend. Adam was my first stranger comment on my blog and he is a really cool kid from Arizona. (well, it's warm in AZ, I am the cool one at 39 degrees.)

Have a good night kids...unless I come across something worthwhile, I am signing off for the evening.

Survey Finds First Amendment Is Being Left Behind in U.S. High Schools

Click above for the press release.

Does everyone else find this as scary as I do? Even though I live in a 'red state' I went to a fairly well-rounded school with a good curriculum. Makes me wonder what other places are teaching their kids in Social Studies classes. A few things I find particularly disturbing:

  • Almost 75% of students take their right to freedom of speech for granted.
  • 75% think burning the flag is illegal.
  • 1/2 (!) think that the government can censor the internet.
  • and most disturbing of all: 1/3 think that the 1st amendment goes too far in the rights it guarantees.

Wow, goes too far...I haven't heard that one before. I am only 25 (yes, I admit it.) but how far removed am I from the high school students of today? When I was in school we studied the First Amendment like it was going out of style (which, it evidently is) and were taught to use it to its fullest extent. I can't even think of anything else to say...BUT! if I could, I would be free to write it. Get it? Huh? Huh? Yeah...Freedom of Speech:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

A few quotes to inspire you today to say whatever the fuck you want:

  • "Restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us." -- Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas
  • "We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is afraid of its people." -- John F. Kennedy
  • "Free speech, exercised both individually and through a free press, is a necessity in any country where people are themselves free." -- Theodore Roosevelt
  • "If the fires of freedom and civil liberties burn low in other lands, they must be made brighter in our own. If in other lands the press and books and literature of all kinds are censored, we must redouble our efforts here to keep them free." -- Franklin Delano Roosevelt
  • "There is no more fundamental axiom of American freedom than the familiar statement: In a free country we punish men for crimes they commit, but never for the opinions they have." -- Harry Truman
  • "America did not invent human rights. In a very real sense...human rights invented America." -- Jimmy Carter

ok, i got a little carried away with the quiz thing...just look at the pretty pictures.

A cup of Joe

So, I call my friend Joe today, because I have been a bad friend and not talked to him since his birthday in January, basically. Lynn and I are planning to spend my birthday weekend in Chicago at Joe's and I thought it would be nice to let him know. I met Joe about 2 1/2 years ago when he started dating one of my friends after another and I started informing him that all my friends were asses. So 2 years ago on St Patty's day I called him up and asked him out...not out in a date way, but out in the way that one gay alcoholic asks another to come be co-dependant drinking buddies for the evening. I did, however have an ENORMOUS crush on Joe*. So we went to Chumley's for beer (not even green beer, what gives?) and stayed till closing, then headed to Hunter's Pub Down Under (down under a bank downtown) where we met up with a guy I had known for a couple years and his friends. Let me be perfectly honest, this was not a friend, just a guy I had known. Well, the end of the night comes and I think Joe is going to come back to my place downtown to crash, and he says he is going to stay and hang out with other guy. Come to find out, he hadn't stopped dating my friends, he just stopped telling me about it, lol...

Anyway, that didn't last and Joe and I became platonically exclusive. Every Sunday night we would curl up on my couch and watch Queer as Folk and drink. The most that ever came of it was a few drunken nights of making out at parties...although we did get named "The Sleepytime Twins" because we tended to go to an after-hours party, find the nearest sofa and promptly fall asleep on each other. We would sneak into the bathroom at parties and lock the door so people thought we were getting the business...but we were usually talking about all the other people at the party. I only knew Joe a few months before he moved to Chicago, but in that time, I met Ami, his (soon to be my) friend. Joe and I went to the Neon Cactus in the Levee and he said his friend Ami was going to be there. So, she shows up and Joe proceeds to leave us alone for the next 20 minutes while he is in the bathroom. This is just enough time for me to realize that Ami is a pompous bitch that I can not stand**. Ami and I slowly warm up to each other and when he moves he tells her that I can take his place as her gay friend. Because, yes, Joe and I are so very similar you could hardly tell us apart, ahem...sorry, that's a lie. Anyway, after Joe leaves Ami and I soon find out we share a fondness for the drink and start to go out on the weekends, then on Wednesdays, Thursdays (of course), Mondays (if we're not too busy), Tuesdays (it's pint night). It got so bad we were invited to the employees Christmas party at Chumley's because we were there so much. By this point we were inseperable, and moved in together, first in her 1 bedroom apt, then to a lovely 2 bedroom unit. Then she left me, too...to South Carolina.

Anyway, the point of this story was supposed to be that Joe was asleep when I called and hardly coherent, so I don't know if he is cool with us staying at his place that weekend.

* SO over that, lol.
**From later conversations with Ami I learned these feelings were mutual, I came across as a 'horrible bastard'.

Only those of you that went to HHS will care, but the barn was burned down. Seems like those new kids can't protect it from West Side as well as our classes did. Kind of a sad day. :(

William Henry Harrison High School

WOW! Demi Moore looks really good for her age.

So, I decided to stay in tonight. Good thing, or I would have missed the Kutchmoore on SNL. Here are some thoughts/comments/questions that come to mind while watching.
  • New catch phrase: "It's really sweeping the Denver area."
  • Kutcher looks hot in white boxer-briefs pretending to be Mr. Britney. 'Federline: Man Panties for Wiggers.'
  • Why is there not a show called 'Gays in Space'? (Can I go to Planet Alpha Hunktari for vaycay?)
  • Where can I find myself one of them there nudity piles?
  • Here's a little stream of thought for you: Gwen Stefani is singing : her clothing line/album is called L.A.M.B. : my friend Beth used to do the l.a.m.b.l.a.m.b dance. Here's a little tutorial: Stand up straight, Shake boobs (Look At My Boobs), Lean slightly forward, Shake Butt (Look At My Butt). It's really quite easy and can be adapted to almost any tempo.
  • I (heart) Tina Fey & Amy Poehler.
  • Tina Fey is hot.
  • I forgot SNL is 90 minutes long.
  • Seth Meyers is hot.
  • I don't like the 'SNL Sneak Peeks' during the commercials. If you need to remind me what I am watching, cut some of the ads.
  • Gwen Stefani is wearing fantastic shoes. The basketball jersey dress was a questionable choice.
  • The last 30 minutes of SNL is not funny.
  • BTW - I think they showed an exterior shot of the Purdue University Memorial Union in a sketch on MadTV. So, that's kinda cool...

On a completely random note...Is Indian a race? What about people from Pakistan, Nepal, etc? Would they be offended by that? Should I say 'people originating from the Indian subcontinent'? That awfully clumsy to say.

I am not your FUCKING MOMMY!

So, went to see The Ring 2 last night. I should have known when the theatre wasn't even 1/2 full on opening night that it couldn't be that great. Without any details, let me just say, it wasn't as good as I thought/expected/wanted it to be.

NOTICE: To the 8 random muthafuckas that were texting each other throughout the entire movie, please listen. I know your life is probably so busy and important that it's hard for you to take 2 hours of your time to be unconnected to the world. I thank you for not talking on your phones during the movie. BUT! maybe you could have sat in the back so the light from your phone was not SO distracting, or maybe you could have turned the sound off so i didn't hear 2 of you going *bing* every 2 minutes, or maybe you should have not come to the movie, since you obviously could not spare the attention from the obvious life or death situation that you were talking about. I would hate to think that it was not important, your conversation. I would hate to think that you are that disrespectful. I would hate...you.

OK, over that, thanks for listening.

Anyway, after the movie, we went to Jake's Roadhouse for some drinks and ran into acquaintances that invited us to their table. They were an eclectic group. Chris-sober, white. DJ-sober-asian. Marshall-craptastically drunk, black. Andre-completely off his ass, russian. Andre's kinda cute and we bonded about vodka. It's amazing how long you can talk about vodka...about 20 minutes. He seems like a great guy and told me I should come over to his place to hang out sometime. Everything was going great until, at about the same time, I mentioned an ex-boyfriend and he mentioned a current girlfriend...damn it all.

Oh well, not a bad night altogether. Stayed at Lynn's house and we spent pretty much all morning and afternoon curled up on the couch watching VH1. About 5:00 I realized I was hungry and decided to come home. And now...nothing...blah.

Maybe something interesting will happen tonight. I hope so, cause this was one boring ass entry. Sorry, kids...not every day is a winner.

Chicken Salad on Who?

Click above...

Stop by and welcome Ami to the world of blog. We're on the phone last night when she finally gets clued in to the fact that I have a blog. She first had no idea what a blog was, and then started reading mine. 10 minutes later, she wants to start one. (imagine the whine: "I waaant one!")

So with a semi-helping hand from me (mostly me saying, "It's your blog, name it your own damn self.") she is started. So, we have a new neighbor, and if I ever figure out how to put a links tab on this page, you will see some more of my friends.

--I haven't watched much of American Idol this year, but I have caught glimpses of Mario Vazquez on the tele lately. (I didn't know they would let Justin Guarini back on if he just changed his name.) Turns out, he is already on a released album, which a super-no-no. No one would have known, but it was re-released this week, OOPS!

So, I like this new show Jake in Progress...I saw the preview on Sunday. Well, when does ABC decide to air it. On Thursdays of course, when I have to work until 9:30-10 every week. Guess that's one more show I will never again see. I'm over it.

I need a haircut desperately. It has gone from the ideal 2 inch length to the unmanageable 4 inches. It's such an ordeal for me to get a haircut, I have to find the perfect picture of what I want. Then I have to take the pic to Leeann and tell her how I want it changed so it will actually work with my hair. I actually thought about letting my hair grow out a couple days ago. But, then I would just be a faggot with long hair. (No, by the way, you are NOT allowed to use that word...just me) I pride myself in good hair, it's just so much work.

On the personal hygiene front: my store just started carrying a new men's skin care line. Anthony: Logistics for Men is a nature based skin care line. Most of the products are made with natural ingredients with a little fragrance thrown in. I don't usually use scented products, but my friend Ninja Camarillo hooked me up with free samples that I promised to use and report back today. They average only $15 per product and there are great package deals, too. You can get it at any May Company store near you.

Wow, sorry for the infomercial. (By the way, go rent 'Girls Will Be Girls' just so you can use the word 'specimercial' in real life.)

I thought nice guys were supposed to finish last?

I have just learned some new info about the Inferno II airing on MTV right now. A very reliable source *wink wink* has let me know that, unfortunately, the Good Guys win the challege and the extra $150,000. Mike, Jamie, Landon, and Darrell are the team members left at the end. My source also revealed that Beth (from Los Angeles cast) gets mad and storms off the show. AWESOME!

Just Click Here...Quick

It will only hurt for a minute, although, the nausea tends to last.

I am just sitting here wasting some time on my day off. Went to Purdue to have lunch with some old co-workers. (chick-a-dee-china) Then rented Alfie and came home. Lynn is going to pick me up after she gets off work and we are going to watch Alfie and Sky Captain. (I heart Jude Law)

I don't think I have written about this yet, so I will now. A friend of mine that has moved away was dating a guy in her new city. I didn't like him, but that's because I wish a life of horrible single-ness on all those I meet. Anyway, after date 3 (maybe 4) things got a little more involved...and things were proceeding towards the unnatural act of hetero sex. He wouldn't put on a condom!! He just wouldn't do it...so she wouldn't do it...they didn't do it. That's all well and good, but I worry about 2 things.

  • There are still guys out there that have sex without condoms.
  • There are still girls out there that have sex without condoms.
(These are both assumptions. I assume he has had sex and I assume it was with a woman and I assume his aversion to condoms is not a new issue.)

Wake up people. I saw a commercial today on TV...'We have found the weapon of mass destruction: World AIDS.'

I am just rambling now and i can...know why?


Boys Clothes??? Girl's Clothes??? Click Here...

This is fucked up. I won't rant...

If you know me, you can already imagine what I would say about this article. I won't bore you by actually writing it.

Uckadoo...and I mean that...

If you believe everything you read on Page 6 (and you do, right?) Bruce Willis needs to realize that Demi might be able to get the naughty she needs from someone 1/2 her age...but he can not. I, personally, will not allow it. Beyond that, it's a little ishy to know that the Lohan has 'La Bella Vista' (The Beautiful View) tagged on her ass. After seeing sex tapes of Paris and the Durst and just imagining that tattoo...I know far too much about the private parts of celebs that are at the low end of my Love-List.

On another note, The Donald has scrapped plans that would make his new Chicago building the tallest in the country. Even after all the redesigns, it's not an oh-so-attractive building...If you're going to build an ugly building you mat as well make it the tallest ugly building. Just me, I guess

So, I come home from work today, and promptly fell asleep around 4 and didn't wake up till 9. Probably explained by the fact that I didn't go to bed until 4 last night when I realized I had to be at work at 7. Anyway, that has nothing to do with anything...EXCEPT...when I woke up someone had e-mailed me this link that i LOVE! Give it a try, it takes a minute to load...It is technically work safe, but there is sound you have to hear with it.

Oh, if your floating alone out there in cyberspace, Friendster Me. It's fun, I swear.

I wish I had something more important or exciting to say, but it's been fairly boring...

I did hit Holly over the head with a shoe box today for reminding me that I am going to be 25 in less than a month. This is a bit of a sore spot for me seeing as how I wanted to be in Chicago by 25. (Although my actual goal was 28, I got ambitious.) But, I think there is a new plan now. Aggressively save money until Tiffany's wedding in August and move immediately after. That gives me a good 6 months to save the (est) $2,500 I want to move with. A little quick math...
  • 24 weeks
  • $2,500
  • ~$104/week

I think if I can stick to actually saving $100/week, I can do it. Although that doesn't take into account the Wedding...I think it's doable...

Is doable a word? Let's see www.dictionary.com has to say about that.

I don't think it should be a word...it looks stupid.

Wow, I guess I have rambled on quite a while, and what you, dear reader, do not know is it has taken me about 2 hours to write this because I am so ADD today.

Anyway, I am going to sign off for now.

I'm Deep...

Diamonds are two things a boyfriend isn't: Forever and Your Best Friend...buy diamonds.

Tomorrow, Tomorrow...

OK, actually it was yesterday, yesterday. Went over to Brittnie's house last night after work to watch Annie. (Yes, like Annie) She was supposed to watch it and write a response about the political/social/financial atmosphere of the time. (I am embellishing from what she actually said.) We started the movie at 7...which means we had to stop an hour in to watch American Idol...and then watch Summerland...and then watch Dan on RW/RR Inferno II. and then something else or whatever. And we spent about an hour playing "Sit, Down, Stay" with her dog Warren. Not really a very fun game unless you are drunk or high, I think. Conclusion: Brittnie and I are both ADD and could not accomplish anything unless our very lives depended on it. Needless to say, we did not finish the movie, even though I did make her stay up about an housr later than she wanted to and we could have...but, you know, sometimes things just don't happen.

I proceeded to get rather drunk and sleep on her couch. At one point I saw one of her roommates in the kitchen, but I was only awake for about 4.3 seconds, so I didn't say hi. Brittnie didn't wake up till about 12:30 and drove me home. I left vodka at her house...AGAIN. So, I am at home now doing nothing, nothing, nothing.

I really hope Dan doesn't get kicked off the Inferno. He is pretty much the only reason I would watch it. But he is up against Mike "The Miz" for the Inferno unless he wins the next competition. Not that I don't have faith in my boy...but, it's Mike. I have a bad feeling about this.

That's all for now. I am off today, so there might be another post coming...you never know.

Hey, Kids...how's everything out there in the real world? I just woke up at 12:30 in the afternoon...and I am HAPPY about it! I have had to be at work at 7 & 8 for the past 3 days and it was about to kill me. We were starting our biggest spring shoe sale (Shoe Spectacular...and it is) and had to prepare...can I just say we rang up $27,000 in shoes (1/3 of which were free) in 5 hours. It's days like that that make you love commission. Though, the paycheck yesterday is what makes you hate commission, because since we were reserving shoes for this sale no one actually bought anything last week. $170 does not go as far as it used to. (Especially when you go to Hollywood Video in your pajamas at 9:00 and buy 3 movies for $30)

Oh, and about that. Just a friendly reminder: just because you've been awake since 5:00 am and feel like it is the middle of the night, people will still stare at you strangely when you walk into the video store at 9 in the evening wearing Valentine's Day PJ pants and flip flops.

On another note...I think I am addicted..to buying DVDs. I never bought DVDs until about 4 months ago. and in the past 3 weeks I have bought:

  • Camp
  • Girls Will Be Girls
  • Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
  • Angels in America (disk 1)
  • Identity
  • A Mighty Wind
  • Intolerable Cruelty
  • Die Mommie Die!
  • Cabin Fever
  • A Home at the End of the World
  • Garden State
  • Chicago
  • Napoleon Dynamite

And I rented a few, too. Most notably I (HEART) Huckabees.

Movie night at my place anyone?

Anyway, I have to be at work at 2...so I should probably go get wet. I hope everyone is doing well, and I will post more regularly now that Shoe Shittacular is underway.

One last thing...Women can be real bitches when you tell them that shoes are buy one get one free. REAL BITCHES!

Here's a hint...

  • For anyone ever in West Lafayette, do not expect to get drunk at Brother's (formerly Boiler Room). I am not entirely sure what I was drinking, but I know I spent $40 and did not get a buzz on Saturday night. There is something seriously wrong when you buy a drink at 2:35am and at 2:45am are getting in line for another because that one went down like water. We started the night at Jake's. Great drinks, cheap drinks, lovely-overly-alcoholic drinks. Well, that was fine, but Brittnie and her sister were going to Brother's. Well, it IS her birthday...so we finished our drinks and headed across the street. At this point I am at a 1.2 on a scale of 0-10 drunkeness. YAY, Brother's, we're finally here. (we are now standing approximately 50 yards north of our previous location.) drink, chat, bathroom, chat, drink, chat, smoke, chat, drink, chat, weird guy in a hat buys me a drink, no chat, smoke...let's go dancing. No one dances at Brother's until after 2. I have fallen to a .7 on the scale. Let's go to Where Else?. Get in, coats checked. We are now 5 yards east of our last location. (This sounds like a word problem from 8th grade now.) We finally make it onto the dance floor and the first people I see are:
  • Bertha...approximately 300 pounds in a satin tank top.
  • John Boy...approximately more white than I am and wearing a lot of fake "bling".
  • The Wierdo Twins...approximately creepy because they are dancing behind the 2 girls I am with, but not dancing with them. Just hovering and gyrating in their direction.

One drink is not enough, I start stealing out of Lynn's straw. Still not enough. As I walk back to the bar I pass an ex co-worker. We'll call him Hottie McHottHott.

I have previously run into Hottie at the bars and proceeded to touch him in an innappropriate manner that he seemed to enjoy, but he was there with a girl. Tonight, same girl...he sees me, HUGE GRIN...everyone is now convinced he is gay and in love with me.

So, Where Else? is not happening. Back to Brother's. Why not a different bar? Because for the first time in 4 years I am out for someone's 21st birthday and they snuck under-agers in. They are now afraid to leave the bar.

So, it is now about 2:00. I have spent over $60. I am at a 1.5 on the scale. BUT! I am having fun now. we take the dance floor...we OWN the dance floor.

*CLICK* lights on...night over...sucks

ooh, tack on the cab...$10


But, I have to say I heart 'I Heart Huckabees' and I heart Bonnie.
