busy busy bee

things here have been busy...

new housemate moved in this week, a friend of my sister's who's finishing up with school. she's very nice. tonight we discovered that the cable in her room doesn't work. must add 'call cable company' to my to do list.

been working entirely too much. have had headache for 4 days. had my reveiw today, boss said nice things. was hard to not burst out laughing during interview, since boss is talking about me having a promotion by christmas. funny since he doesn't know i am quitting. !!!

(i wouldn't want a promotion anyway, too much hassle, only $1 per hour more than i am already making. what a rip.)

saw tuvan throat singers last weekend. was AMAZING. highly reccomended, even if you're not a fan of 'world music'. have to go pick up tickets for bobby mcferrin and ladysmith black mambazo, too.

watched too much tv... premeire week was good, am loving friends, ed, west wing, Miss match (good new show).

was going to do the friday 5 for the hell of it, but hey! no q's this week. i guess on that note, i'll crawl to bed. still exhausted even after a 3 hour nap this afternoon. *sigh* can't wait to quit. can't wait can't wait can't wait.

A Simple Prayer

Lord, make me an insturment of your peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow love
Where there is injury... pardon.
Where there is doubt... faith.
Where there is despair... hope.
Where there is darness...light.
Where theere is sadness... joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may
not so much seek
To be consoled, as to console.
To be understood, as to understand,
To be loved, as to love,

For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.


-St. Francis

john mayer

i don't want a governator!

the thought that arnold schwarzenegger might be our next govenor scares me.

it should scare you too.

if it doesn't, read this: 50 Reasons Not to Vote for Arnie, from the santa cruz metro. well, read it regardless... not only is it informative, it's funny! ;-)

and be sure that you're registered to vote by september 22! and then actually GO VOTE!

proof that MTV isn't totally worthless

john mayer's new CD doesn't come out for 2 more days, but i've been listening to it all day today, in it's entirety, thanks to MTV.

you can't tell by my writing, but right now i'm nearly hyperventilating, i'm so excited.

ok, not really hyperventilating, but i'm still SO STOKED (as my 9th grade science teacher used to say!).

i really like all the tracks... i may end up liking some even more than i do right now, but i won't know until i see the lyrics... great lyrics can make even the most beautiful music better.

anyway, go take a listen yourself!

john mayer - heavier things

i reccommend homelife, clarity, and daughters. take a look at the video while you're there too... my friend danny is in it! ;-)

so, so sad.

currently, it is 10:45 pm here in santa cruz california. it's saturday night, i don't have to work tomorrow, and right now i have big, big plans.

i'm going to turn off my computer, my stereo and my tv and... go to sleep.

by the way, did i mention that it's 10:45 on a SATURDAY?

this is just depressing.

i mean, i've never been a party girl, and i'm more likely to say up late making mixes or talking to my friends on IM, but to be tired enough (after a day of doing virtually nothing) to go to bed at 10:45 on a saturday? *sigh*. i think i'm getting old.

goals for my day off tomorrow:
- balance my checkbook.
- take out the garbage.
- do a few loads of laundry.
- get a life.

i know it might be wrong...

Stacy's Mom by Fountains of Wayne is the catchiest fucking thing i've heard in AGES.

and it's catchy in a good way, not that 'i want to tear my hair out because it's stuck in my head' way.

so.... tired....

i hate labor day because it's the end of the summer, but i love it because fun things always happen on 3 day weekends!

i spent my free time this year at the church retreat, which was great. a carnival, a variety show, scary men in grass skirts going by the names of ugg and other ugg (no kidding!) and the best part of camp... prank wars! the girls started off by removing the door to the boys cabin and hiding it. plans to t.p. the boys cabin were ruined by a locked door and , and then the boys struck back by removing all the mattresses from the beds in our cabin and placing them in our bathroom. our attempt to string their cabin was foiled (and we were almost done, too!!) and by then the weekend was over. we've got some great tricks up our sleeves for next year though! ;-)

i was up really late both nights, so i was going to go to sleep early tonight, but then i just happened to see a commercial saying that they're premeiring john mayer's new video tonight at 11. guess i'm going to bed at 11 now. *sigh*. i never get enough sleep!
