well look at that... how'd it get to be so late?

I had my hair cut tonight... my mom cuts my hair, so I was at my moms house. (go figure).

Two things:

~ my dad was showing me his mini disk thing... playing it into speakers... with the cartridge mini cd that is burned r/w in the thing and plays hours of music. He pops a cd in the pc and plugs this thing in an it's ripped right to the minidisk.  It's cool... it sounds nice... but is it any good? It seemed huge considering the heft some mp3 players are sporting...

~ I was sitting getting the cut... watching sound-off football on the t.v. (sound off as per item one above!) and saw two things that are totally brand new to me... What the hell was that countdown thing all about during a "Challenge!"... cool. It was Dallas playing somebody... never ever saw that before... when did that start that... all dueling head video on the jumbo tron with a countdown clock and "challenge" all blazing. Holy side show batman...  and AND what was with the (maybe I was getting this wrong) FORTY YARD penalty for a pass interference?  wtf? What happens if you commit a foul? Is it like an eighty yard penalty?
(I have to be getting this wrong... sound-off football is fraught with potential for missunderstanding... but but ... )

oh, and I got a hair cut...
way short...
and the stuff she cut off...
it was all gray...
like with a wee bit of dark stuff. 
wowzers.

alrighti... ni ni...

This is me and my totally goofy family... "hey guys... sit still for a second" sounds exactly the same (it seems) as "hey guys... make goofy faces". :D hahaha...

So remember when I had that root canal done? Yeah... heir Doktor Mengela and his "we should replace that amalgam with lovely white...." The beginning of the end muchachos... gah!!! First the root gets infected when he changes the filling... then the tooth shatters when he's doing the root canal... and then he theoretically fixed the tooth when he filled it all in... I didn't believe him and I fucking blew off him and his punk ass dental clinic... may they all get bad teeth... So after seeing new dentist Mc.Groovy... and being setup this snap dragon bite guard thing (NTI... cool beans... I recommend it if you have grinding problems) and various assessments of the "root canal tooth"... it comes down to this; I am going to hire some angry italians and have them break my old dentists legs...

ar ar ar...
ok, not really. But it does look like I have to have that tooth CHIPPED AWAY from my head... My jaw drilled into... an "implant" made and installed... and then have a "crown" made to go on that implant. There will be many pain killers in my near future... What an absolute fucking drag!!!

Now... just to move on properly... I'm in a great mood otherwise!!! Because the new gig is going to be fun - creative, politically charged, high profile work - and I love that ch-ch-ch-chit! :D (cha cha cha)

wearing
~ black ftls
~ dk green dress pants... no cuff! :D
~ screaming white dress shirt and another (gasp) tie...
~ tommy sweater... cold again. :)
planning
~ well it's noon now... so half the "planning" is old news...
~ up early... zap the kids ready as best I can and get out...
~ dentist at 8:00...
~ new client gig at 9:30 ... from then till now...
~ time sheet day... and review feedback on backup doc finished yesterday. :D
~ tonight? try again with fedora... never got the time last night.
wishing
~ I had something to eat... I'm lunchless!!! ack... maybe a smoke? hahahaha... nah! :D (still going strong).
~ to send some hugs n'stuff to arlyn.... I hope things get way better soon sugar.!!!
~ that wrldtravlr2 gets what's she hoping for ... and that it does "go around!!"
~ that my very sweet friend, canuckgirl... would read a few of my recipes... :D
~ and that monkey finds the Wednesday he wants...

You know what really burns my ass about the hockey strike... I mean... I promise it's not because I don't get to watch hockey... or that a bunch of supremely overpaid hockey players have to suffer with all their cash cruising around europe or playing in lesser hockey leagues... and for sure it's not that the idiot owners... the ones who make problems and expect other people to clean them up... No dude... I'M REALLY KINDA BURNED that the thousands upon thousands of service workers... low income earners to start with... that work in the hockey venues... are all so totally helpless and royally fucked by this strike. Fucking hockey... they should be ashamed.

ps. hi... missed ya this morning... I hope your day is going ok. :D

Yea... so when coworkers totally act like gits...
I reach for my head phones and mutter, under my breath...
"white people!" and remember a scene from the Woopie G movie "burglar" with Bob Goldthwait and I smile.

So coworker dude... "Look... you're a white people so stop with that comment!"
Me: "um... no. But thanks for sharing..."
Dude: "what? are you a native?"
Me: "look... you know how a child of a mixed marriage is called mulatto?"
Dude: "oh... yeah..." (starts to look a bit meek about calling me on this...)
Me: "Yeah, well my great grandfather was italian... so I'm a gelato."

White people... sheesh.

Oh please... no, I'm half irish and half hungarian...
