Hiya LJ. So day 13 !!! Not really feeling too bad. If you thinking of quitting smoking the only advice I have so far is that week one sucks like nothing should ever suck and week two.... less so.

I've been mr. procrastination man for a few weeks on a little something somebody somewhere is paying my boss for me to do so I'm going to have to knuckle under and get bizzy with the fizzy on this one starting today.

So pals - o - buddies, I remember day one of lj land I put my actual birthdate on the bio page. Day two I changed it to the year 00. This weekend I changed it back to '62 and did some big-ass list of things-about-me that includes the cold statement of age. I gotta tell ya, as much as a whole bunch of people calling me an old fart would prol'y bug me, I just completely stopped aging when I hit 30. I actually blurted out 30 when asked my age last year and I was being sincere... Zebra delivered some woopass on my shoulder that snapped me out of my idiotic stupor enough to realize my proper age.

Any ways, the point here is that - regardless of the cliche - you are as old as you feel. The trick is to make sure there are plenty of young people around to feel! (hahahahahaha) just kidding. I think I was - deep psychological reality coming up - older in spirit before I fell in love with Garbage (the band). My taste in music has so completely expanded since then and my heart is younger for the experience.

Music not only sooths the savage beast, it makes the bastard feel a tad more vital.

that's a wrap.

Just a note on a new friend. I went to the stats page for lj the other night and dropped in on a couple of people that had brand-spanking-new journals to say "hey" and "welcome" etc. (going for the Mr. Congeniality award...) Well I found Stellah this way... she's on my friend list so if I get too flattering and she reads it she'll think I'm stranger that I normally am, but she's pretty dam cool. She is a designer from (where else) web land and provided me with a link to some of her work (a Thailand tourist site that I can't find the link for right now due to LJ server load!!!) ... wow! But besides the outstanding design stuff, she wins my heart 'cause she knows the value of dancing till dawn.

ps. have I mentioned how addicted I am to LJ lately?

Ok, what's up with Lloyd Robertson (CTV News Anchor) - if your at all familiar with this guys features, you gotta admit that they (ctv) must have killed him off and subbed in a not yet fully formed clone for the election night coverage... holy crap!

So, does anybody besides me watch Ally Needs-a-burger-McBeal? It's my favorite "dis" tv show... you know, sit there trashing all the characters... 'cept they added whats his name Robert Downey Jr. and people have you seen this.. no prol'y not, cause far as I can tell nobody watches this show. The point is, last week he was wearing a serious RED dress shirt with a red tie and it looked great!!! He pulled off an ORANGE (yes I said orange) sweater tonight. (ok, he did not actually "pull" it anywhere... he managed to get away with wearing an orange sweater...) To me, this is great. I rebelled and stopped doing corporate dress code ages ago (before my piss ant home town - the nations capital!! - wised up) but mostly 'cause the clothes looked like some kind of a bad dream where everybody looks the same... When I have to dress, I wear great ties - lots of colour ... whatever... but a RED SHIRT... cool.

ok, I'm done.

For my friend Junebugg...
an ally update
The televised chronical of the improbably thin, goofy and otherwise unrealistic - the ally mcbeal show - was a typcial lead up to christmas effor to get deep.
There was some plot development... bones-girl and the drug lord (robby downey - was arrested again today on drug and weapons offences!!!) were getting pre christmas and he fess'es up to having a 7 year old son. He sings his brat pack coke addict heart out in this episode and I was impressed. Lets see, the son: Larry is divorced from lady B, but has a son with lady A. As the lettering would indicate, lady A came first (well actually he did -hahaha) and had the baby boy that he has not seen since the boy was 3. Now he's all depressed 'bout christmas.

Elain is all pissed - holiday blues - about everyone having relationships, so she sings in the bar. John (biskit boy) is looking to get a little long term nookie from the vestile virgin (Kimmy - that chick from square pegs that - suprise suprise - played a prude on that show) so when she says she always fall for boys that can sing... he lies and says he used to do a rock band gig in collage. Well we are treated to him doing the leather dude from Village People as a rock & roll singer in the bar. In anticipation of him sucking really very badly at this, Fish convinces Ling and Nel to play bar sluts and ask everybody to please act like they love the biskits show. They need'nt have.. he was hilarious and did not suck.
Thankfully, Rene, the woman with the largest stuck out breasts on all of evening prime time television, did not sing tonight... but she was practically the only one to not sing.
Best line: Mark (the guy that dated the hermaphrodite) in the unisex prior to Elaine sing'en tells her she's a tab bit desperate with the 'song to attract dates' deal. She says dig's him about his girlfriend with a "shlong" and then "I haven't had a boyfriend in 7 years, I am desperate."
Mark likes Elaines performance. He approaches her desk next day and asks her if she got a date out of her efforts... She says "no". He says "want one?" She regards him with that man-eater stare of hers and says "Well sure". So he says "Ummm... listen, I gotta ask, do ... uh" She pipes up "No, I haven't got a penis"
They tried to get us to be all mushy... didn't happen.
