Hot-lanta my ass.

Even with the humidity over the weekend, it was better weather than what I came back home to last night in LA.

What is worse: a muzak version of a song that you hold dear to your heart or a gawd-awful cover version that creates an urge to puke?

NetFlix:
Grosse Pointe - disc 2
The Office - 2 discs, original version

DVR:
Scott Baio is 45 . . . and Single - so much better than you would think it would be.
Rock of Love with Bret Michaels - must ask Heather what the hell she ever saw in him.
NY77: The Coolest Year - VH1 doc on New York during the year of 1977.
What's Your Trip - Don't ask, I have no idea why I taped it.
Ebert & Roper - taped for Daniel as he is currently without due to being in the middle of a move.
Indie Sex: Censored
Indie Sex: Taboos
Indie Sex: Teens
Indie Sex: Extremes
-The above 4 Indie Sex specials ran on IFC.

What am I doing? Sitting among various itineraries for upcoming travel, trying to avoid looking at the stack of magazines that I should read, and waiting for the towels to dry.

I could be multi-tasking: watching Scott while sorting through itineraries while towels dry, for example. Instead, I am sitting here posting. Why? It is called procrastination. I am attempting to get better at it.

It is good to set new goals for yourself, right?

Shopping sucks. I had two days of it. My head still hurts from it all. The most I can say is that I am happy it is over.

Some things I learned shopping:

1. Cheerful people in malls bug me.
2. It isn't polite to randomly spray people as you walk by perfume counters.
3. Too many people are wandering around for no reason other than to walk slowly in a straight line that causes a traffic jam.
4a. While it is OK to let your children run around like animals, it is not OK for people that they run into to ask that you watch them.
4b. It is also not OK for the person who has asked you to watch your children twice to inform you that she will go to the store staff if it happens again. If this happens, you are allowed to call her a "bitch."
5. Whenever I actually find something that I absolutely love that is not a book or music, they will not have my size. Worse, it will likely be "last season," meaning that there is no hope of finding it at another store in the chain.

The most important thing that I learned is actually something that I already knew, but was reaffirmed for me:

Just because they make it in your size does not mean that you should wear it.

I will post. I do have things to say for once, it is just a matter of finding the time and energy to do so.

I have How I Met Your Mother on as background noise while doing bills when I hear the Replacements. As I have yet to unpack the CDs (which I have no idea if they work) so it took a minute to realize that the supervisor of the show placed Skyway in a scene taking place at a wedding reception.

I don't know about you, but there is nothing like hearing a song that I love in an unexpected place.

First Sun to remake 'Suspiria'
Original screens in Cannes
By ADAM DAWTREY
CANNES -- New Italian production outfit First Sun has acquired the rights to remake Dario Argento's classic 1977 horror movie "Suspiria" as an English-language film.

The original is screening Friday at Cannes to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its release.

First Sun has been founded by director Luca Guadagnino ("Melissa P."), fashion designer Silvia Venturini Fendi and producers Carlo Antonelli, Marco Morabito and Massimilano Violante. The company says it will develop films with an international scope, inspired by the golden age of Italian filmmaking.

" 'Suspiria' has a unique style that we want to reinvent for today's generation," Guadagnino said. "We intend to create a concept that will encompass cinema, videogames, fashion and music and that revives the original for those who did not experience it. The Gothic resurgence is very strong around the world at the moment ... and we feel that a new version of 'Suspiria' will fit very well."

Hot dang!

Phone & DSL are now up and running. It only took a good 3 hours to fix the problem.

I’m getting a crown! That’s right – all the (cup)cakes have caught up to me. However, before getting my crown on my molar, my dentist wants to do a localized gum treatment. Oh yeah, happy days are here for me! The best news of all? It will be about what I’ve saved toward a down payment on a car.

Life is grand! Pass the chocolate.

At what point am I going to be able to feel 100%? I was kicked in the ass by the flu a few weeks ago and still have not completely gotten rid of the cough. In fact, the sore throat still comes around every once in a while to remind me who won the big germ battle of April '07. I'm still taking evening cold medicine when it feels necessary (in other words, when I am waking up coughing). I'm getting more sleep than ever, but still feel tired.

This strain that is going around (I call it that due to a few others I know of who have had the exact same time frame as I have) really is a pain in the ass.

Well crap.

Gilmore Girls may be canceled, but I will always have the memory of Sebastian Bach singing Hollaback Girl in my heart.

Yep, the title says it all. So far I have discovered the following:

-My boss has no idea where things are in the office.
-There is little on TV that keeps my interest (apart from airings of The OC and 90210 on SoapNet).
-Shia LeBeouf seems a bit full of himself.
-People still use fax machines, and enter the wrong numbers on redial. I know this from my experience yesterday.
-Avril's song is quite obnoxious.
-Theraflu (taken to relieve my sore ass throat) does not work as well as hot tea in terms of enabling me to speak.
-Tyra's show is bad. Really, really bad. Bad enough for me to start watching on a regular basis.

When I look over at your golden face I cannot help but feel as though you know what awaits you. I do sincerely apologize for the fate that you will soon meet. I just wish that I could give you the respect of somehow giving a time frame of your impending hearing problem, alas . . . I cannot. You see, it is due to willpower that you have not had your ears eaten by me yet, a strength that I was unaware that I possessed. Still, we both know the inevitable will happen. I will begin with your ears and then work my way down.

I do make this promise though: I will love every bite of you the way that I did your little yellow chick friends that I had earlier in the day. Oh, that sweet spongy feeling of sugar coated-marshmallow in my mouth.

Easter. Why must you come only once a year?

I am a geek

I saw the actress who plays Sookie on The Gilmore Girls at the market this morning. I was able to not only contain my excitement, but also resisted stopping her to ask if there will be another season.

A wrong number woke me from a deep sleep last week, a rude awakening made worse by the fact that Let The Music Play was blaring in my head to the point that I thought that a neighbor may have been playing it.

The only explanation I could come up with is that Shannon’s song was somehow part of whatever it was that I was dreaming. Unfortunately, I cannot remember anything of the dream other than Let The Music Play. Also unfortunate is that I had that damn song in my head for a few days after the wake up call.

Friggin’ wrong numbers.

I spoke to my cousin Ricky (Rick to others, always Ricky to me) this evening during my drive home from work, mostly about how his wife is doing as she is due with their first child. In our conversation, I mentioned that I really liked the middle name, Cole, that they had selected for their son. That is when Ricky told me that originally he was pushing for James, but Cheryl (his wife) refused.

He did feel better when a friend of his pointed out the fact that although he wouldn't have "Rick James," he would be able to say that he has "Little Richard."

Just my luck. The relatives with my sense of humor are on the East Coast.

Seriously now, why on earth did Olivia Newton-John just make an appearance on this damn Grease: You're The One That I Want? Did they make a donation to a charity in her name? Did they promise her a snowglobe or something? Protection from a street gang dressed in baseball uniforms? Did they slip her some cash?


edit: Why am I watching this crap? There is no answer other than my wasting time waiting for the new episode of Cold Case to begin at 9. I knew that I shouldn't have watched that Annie Leibovitz documentary earlier in the day.

No matter that it has been years since I've heard the song, I still know all the words to West End Girls.

I'm unsure if I should be proud of this fact or not.

One of my relatives left "Merry Christmas" and "Happy New Year" messages on my machine. Am I to return them? There was no request that I do so, just them identifying themselves and the greeting. It would be one thing if there was a "call me to catch up," but there isn't, which is why I am wondering if I need to return the calls.

Please note that my parents did talk to this relative, and mentioned that we were out for Christmas (other side of my family than the one that called), and that I was out of town for New Years. Also note that I really do not have anything to say to them other than . . . OK, I have nothing at all to say except the usual conversation starters. After that? Nada.

It doesn't matter that your end made me cry in the book. Nor that I cried during the cartoon. Hell, it also doesn't matter that I had tears streaming down my face when I saw the film version on Christmas morning.

I will still squash you. It does not matter what word you figure out how to put in your web. I will squash you.
