the election is 6 days away. get ready to vote. it's amazing that some people are still undecided. coz if you don't know who you are voting for yet, hmm, i don't even know what to say.

i just tried looking for another job and it was a little disconcerting. being a store manager definitely has some perks and a WHOLE LOTTA FAULTS.

"People call these things imperfections, but they're not, aw, that's the good stuff. And then we get to choose who we let in to our weird little worlds. You're not perfect, sport. And let me save you the suspense. This girl you met, she isn't perfect either. But the question is: whether or not you're perfect for each other. That's the whole deal. That's what intimacy is all about. Now you can know everything in the world, sport, but the only way you're findin' out that one is by givin' it a shot."

i can't believe it's november. sweet november.

so halloween was eventful. after getting off work at 10:30, i went to the d.city house for some ghoulish times. bennifer, lycergic (?) spaceman, blondish older lady with gold purse, and kill bill characters were all in the hizzy. i was rockin' the baumer. and one person recognized me. yes. i'd like to point out that k. and j. didn't dress up like they were supposed to. real nice (a.k.a. bogus).

last night i went to see kill bill with eagle-eye alison yersopretty. i must have been too tired to see the dots. pretty good fight scenes. lots of blood. people spoke the truth. not my favorite tarantino film. oh well.

today i spent two hours walking/taking pictures in georgetown. i'm going to philly on friday to eat lunch with my friend keltie, then take more pictures. saturday, i'll be in richmond for my friend emily's birthday party. yes, more pictures. oh i'm dedicated to taking pictures. i also filled out an application for pratt. and then answered the question "are you a widow?"

looks like i'm going to chicago from nov. 24th (mon.)-nov. 30th (sat.) yay! yay!

ready to leave [30 Oct 2003|09:58pm]
does anyone know of a good place to get a TOY HAWK? not tony hawk..although that would be a good addition to any costume. but a toy hawk would kick ass. oh yes. the kickass.

goal for november: take 60 quality slides. i have to send 20 each to the grad schools. kind of intense. the pressure. oh yes. i live for it.

lomo camera coming from russia. in the mail. at least that's what the russian said. i only paid $1 [out of the $90] for that joint. selling cd's is the greatest.

one day southwest will hook up the good deals again. they pop up and down again. but this time i'll be ready. i'm going to spend thanksgiving in chicago with leigh madflowr, erin, and maybe alison yersopretty. plus i desperately need to get out of virginia. i'm realizing what leigh was going through in her "i need to get the fuck out of d.c." mode. i'm there too. [leigh just called me from the b&s show in chicago---yay!]

as my friend kristy said, "when you grow balls, you get responsibilities". damn, so true.

i'm over them [30 Oct 2003|05:00pm]
on tuesday i went to see belle & sebastian. and it's the last time i will see them live again. ever. dear catastrophe letdown. although they played some songs i love, most of their set was blah blah blah blah. the scots were chatty about nothing in particular. dear catastrophe shutup. the crowd wanted to play belle & sebastian-name that tune, the new sensation. "i can name that tune in NO notes." plus the crowd seemed bored. not emo-bored. just bored. and someone yelled freebird. stuart won't play freebird. sorry, no dear catastrophe freebird.

the band went on after 9:45. i looked at my watch at 10:30. i was getting bored. and leaning on FOOD FOOD wasn't helping. maybe too much scrape. they only played one song for the encore. i don't even remember what the encore was b/c i was already walking out the door. I KNOW A SHOW IS BAD WHEN I FEEL CHEATED AND I DIDN'T EVEN PAY FOR IT.

[ mood | busy ]

tonight was inventory at our dupont circle store. it only took 4 hours. and that's double the pay. so i'm psyched.

today was busy with errands. but i made $40 trading in 10 cd's. and that will go to my new lomo camera that is coming from russia. that is once i add $50 and pay for it through ebay. i can't wait.

i decided to finally commit my energy to photography. i'm cancelling cable and using that money for photo gear. domain. and everything else i can think of. this might be the start of something good.

some nyc pics were developed. i need to buy a domain so i can present them. hmm. chop chop alex. scans don't grow on trees.

i also figured out i need to break out of my shell. this terminally shy bullshit has to go. the end. i'm done.

oh yeah. i'm probably going to chicago for thanksgiving. yay! i just have to run it by my mom first. she might be pissed i'm not here for thanksgiving. and i don't want the silent treatment. ooooooooooooooh no.

uhm...how? what? please let me know [25 Oct 2003|10:59pm]
the florida marlins win the world series. what? wow. how did that happen? i'm glad i'm not in nyc tonight. b/c i would have to deal with some angry yankees fans. congrats marlins.

at my college reunion, a friend asked me "are you going to your high school reunion next year?" my answer: "fuck no."

i still need to see kill bill. if anyone wants to go, let me know? maybe sometime midweek.

my friend corey is going to design a website for my photography. maybe i should start thiking like a photographer. one who wants to share his pictures. i just have to come up with a name. and i'm bad with names. so a thinking cap must go on. if anyone thinks of a good name, please please please let me know.

i must try and read "dude, where is my country." i'm such a slacky mcslackerson when it comes to reading. a case of A.D.D. will do that to you.

nyc: a wrapup [25 Oct 2003|09:32am]
nyc was amazing.
left at 9:30 a.m.
had a good wingperson
ate some dried mango, drank some fizz.
sang some "shoop"
got there at 2. parking was murder.
i think i saw e. houston, delancey, and chrystie a million times.
finally found parking.
squeezed in.
missed teany. but played moby regardless.
took pictures. not as many as i would have liked. what is my problem? no eye?
grand central. quite grand. quite central.
saw my friend lydie. she works at a cute bookstore. on a corner.
ate at yaffa. amazing carrot dressing. but the rest can yaffa block your arteries. or something. still good though.
jason collett wants to be the next ryan adams. or something of that sort. still o.k. he was tipsy.
the stars put on a good show. the dude singer had some weird facial expressions. and some questionable views. and he talked british for some reason.
broken social scene were amazing. they put on a really good set. emily haines [from metric] sang some songs too. it was maggie's birthday. she never looked so young.
left nyc at 11 something.
listened to david cross. what a funny dude.
got back at 3:45 or something. at that point i was hallucinating.
the company was good. i wouldn't want to take a trip like that with anyone else.

"will someone please call the surgeon"... [21 Oct 2003|05:19am]
....who can crack my brain and repair insomnia. seriously this is fucked. it's 5:30. i mean. seriously.

dcfc wrapup:

the show was good. not "oh my fucking lord i can't believe i'm only seeing them once" amazing, but more like "oh i'm glad that i caught them coming through" good. the sound wasn't the greatest and the setlist was all over the place. they even covered the cure. i would have rather heard "complicated". the best part was the bass player who seemed to always want to rock out. i think that's why they put him in the middle. he had a lot of energy. the crowd was an interesting bunch. there were these 3 dudes to the right of the stage who were dancing in sync (not nsync) to most of the songs. and they seemed to sing along too. so maybe for better reference i'll call them the death cab for cutie dancers. they were extremely entertaining. also, for some reason the right side was super rambunctious. in the beginning someone kept yelling "you look like a giant". then they were just screaming "courtney {something or another}." weird. that's the kind of night it was.

and for the 3 who yelled "freebird", southern rock is dead. let it stay dead.

{thanks for the coke & cookies, you know who you are...no namedropping anymore..no credit where credit is due..ha!}

fuck. i need more sleep. really. where's the pills?

new roommate [19 Oct 2003|10:06pm]
so jp is coming. i will have a new roommate on tuesday. it will be weird. coz i'm used to living alone. but he's paying some of the rent. so that will help me out.

i can't figure out if when i visit chicago and new york, whether to apply to jobs for kicks. or at least see the grad schools. i guess that makes sense.

probably check out teany and candle cafe in nyc. at least one of the two. has anyone been to either?

played boggle with some peeps last night. fun times when boggle is involved.

now i have to think about writing music blurbs for work. blargh.

thank you brain. 3:45 a.m. check. [18 Oct 2003|03:45am]
the problem when you wind a ball this tight, it REALLY becomes hard to unwind. and if i think about what i can't stop thinking about, i'll think my brain off. my brain will actually walk off my body and say "LATER DUDE, I'M OUTTA HERE. IT'S A LITTLE TOO INTENSE UP IN THIS JOINT, AND I'M READY TO PARTY"

take my brain to make sense of all this mess......gaaaaah!

[added sidenote: this proves i should be making more money.]

street cred [17 Oct 2003|11:57pm]
i have to give credit where credit is due. lance armstrong signed almost 1200 books in 1 hour. only 1 hour. that's almost 20 books per minute. he signs faster than he bikes. damn. so credit where credit is due. there you have it.

the event went well. the store did well. i'd like to point out that my mom called me at the store at 11 p.m. to ensure me that she got the clay aiken cd at target. oh mom!!!

tomorrow will be mellow yellow. i'm going to the diver city house to play boggle with shannon symptom, karen modernlove, maybe alexis, maybe bob chules. yo chules, will you be around?

i missed fire theft tonight. too exhausted. too late fixin' register errors. possible write up again. i'm going for 10!!!!!!!!!!!! why stop now?

i might try and go to chicago in november to visit ms. leigh madflowr. we'll see. who knows. maybe i'll see if i can drag a peep/some peeps with me too. i just gotta get away. kind of like the calgon commercial.

i hope alison yersopretty is surviving with her mother and recovering from her sickness. i hope dan's immediatetongue84 and leslie's _protocol 21 are rockin' their worlds.

+++++++++++++ [16 Oct 2003|01:33pm]
it's getting harder to for me to get motivated to get out of bed. i'd rather sleep more and more. rip van winkle-itis, yes please.

work is blowing. school is boring. but at least i have a positive outlook on everything else. i'm going to some amazing shows this month. road trips. and eating cake later today with leslie _protocol and dan immediatetongue

i'm also aiming to win.

and i'm going to make a mix cd for my friend melissa in florida. i've owed her that mix for 1 year. and another one for my friend allison. which i have not owed her, but still want to make. she needs new music and who am i not to provide it.

i have to get my teachers to sign the "drop class" form. blah. it will be liberating.

dcfc and bss next week. i can hardly wait.
