Social Networking Takes a Turn For The Better

The only true currency in this bankrupt world... is what you share with someone else when you're uncool.

Lester Bangs

Found an old friend on MySpace! Erin was my best friend in my younger years - Junior high through the first part of high school. A few months before my 16th birthday I moved to Seattle to live with my dad. Unfortunately this is not a great age to make a big move, because the tendency is definitely not to stay in touch with your good friends. Lucky for us, over 10 years later, we're back in touch!

In hindsight, Erin and I were probably the un-coolest people I knew at the time. I don't mean this to be down on myself, and certainly not Erin, but was pretty bad. You should have seen the hair styles.

The great thing about our friendship is that I didn't realize we weren't cool when I was around Erin. When I was at school, I was very very aware of this fact, but when we were hanging out, we were just having fun, and trends, etc, didn't matter much.

Erin is getting married next week! I'm really excited to go to the wedding, and even more excited to see my old friend. I have to admit though, it's going to be a little bit strange. I remember planning our weddings when we were young. For some reason neither of us remember much about Erin's nuptials, but my wedding was going to be held at her house, my colors were going to be green and ivory, and I was planning to marry her brother.

She recently confided to me that her wedding colors are going to be green and ivory. I had it first, people - Don't you forget that.

I guess I could always go with purple and red....

Jacked In

I'm starting to get tired of all of the invites everyone is sending me for various networking, friend-making-finding, time-wasting websites. Seriously, People. I have a blog, a flickr account, and a myspace page. I'm very content, so please leave me the crap alone. Jeeez.


Ahem. Apparently Flickr is taking a bit of a vacation. Slightly inconvenient, but we'll be fine. Check back later for that link...or go to one of my older posts with an image and click on that to see my photos.

The Truth is Out There

Ever found out that what you believed to be true about yourself, your entire life, is completely false? Traumatized much?

Nick and I were having a conversation recently about social security numbers and what the numbers mean. He was saying that the first 3 digits are based on geography - which I shot down, based on the fact that I was born in Oregon, and a mutual friend of ours, also born in Oregon, has a completely different set of first three digits. To settle this once and for all, I looked it up in Wikipedia, and found out that Nick was right. The first 3 digits of your "sosh" are based on geography. Wikipedia, being completely thorough and all, had an actual chart that went over each sequence of numbers and what state they originate from. Apparently my social security number was acquired in, are you ready for this?, KANSAS. Jeez.

I grew up in the midwest...this is not a surprise to me or anyone else I know. Or, it seems, to the guy at Macy's who sold me a mattress. (during the course of conversation, he says, "you're not originally from here, are you?" I get that a lot.) Regardless of the fact that the Kansas part is not a surprise, my social security number being from there is!

Not the end of the world, not even a big deal, at all...but really strange to find out you were wrong all along, despite how small the findings.

I'm Not Depressed, My Bed is Just Really Comfortable

I bought a new bed this last weekend, and it effing rocks! Seriously, you don't even know. It's so so so so comfortable that I never want to get out of it. If I didn't have so much damn laundry to do last night, I probably would have sat in my bed all evening and just basked in it's glory. I don't want to get out of it in the morning, and I think about it all day at work. When I get home, I want to sit in it and order delivery. Then I want to eat dinner while sitting on it.

It's a queen sized quilted plush top. Not only is this the most comfortable bed EVER, but I also got the hottest deal on the planet. Seriously...this deal nearly rocked my face off. I went to many places last weekend, including Macy's, which was having a sale. The salesman showed me a few sets that were waaaaay out of my price range, and then after I set him straight, several in my price range. The final set he showed me was a floor model that they had on clearance because the model had been discontinued. The original price was $1709. The final price, the price that I paid for this mattress set, I'm not even kidding here, was $499.50.

Wanna come over and look at it?

Thoughts on the new template? Too busy?

Morning Chat

Text message conversation which took place at 730am:

Nick: Good morning sleepy face! I love you! Don't forget to get up!
Me: I'm already on the bus!
Nick: Whoa! Who are you???
Me: I'm "Get To Work On Time Girl". My superpower is fastest shower west of the Mississippi.

Don't Judge Me - We Both Know You Were Thinking The Same Thing

The Communist Pagan in me was very tempted to steal flowers from the entrance of the office park that I work in today.

Happy May Day, everyone!
