More Thoughts In No Particular Order

Holy crap it's been A MONTH since I blogged.

My car insurance is now $75 a month. Sure is nice to have all those tickets gone from my record. (Also note: I obviously haven't gotten any MORE. Whew.)

I am dating SO FREAKING MUCH. I barely have time to do anything else. I love it, and I'm learning a lot about myself.

And other people, of course.

Things I have learned about love:

You can really like someone as a person, and you can really like them as a lover, but sometimes that's not enough. If you can't--or won't--be vulnerable with each other, that is not a relationship.

Things I have learned about myself:

I need my dates to be articulate motormouths.

And I need them to have something going on in their lives. They need to be ABOUT something.

(Cafe Presse is playing Roy Orbison and it makes me smile on the inside.)

Questions for the universe:

Is there a service that will send cards for you? I need that.

How many cracking noises in a windshield is too many?

Is there an extended-life battery made for the HTC Incredible?

How can I move AGAIN? Roomamte and I JUST moved, feels like. We are still moving IN. We just got things rearranged. And now we have to move again. But for a good cause.

I'll hang on to that happy thought.

Thoughts In No Particular Order

My second cousin is in a music video being played on MTV!

My friend Athena is funny. Her Facebook status: "Life as we know it canceled due to snow."

A Korean that I support for work will just call me over and over again until he reaches me on the phone. This is frustrating. Paradoxically, it makes me less inclined to call him back, which I know is childish and beneath me.


I have three weddings to attend this year. That is more than than I have attended in the last three years combined. I'm

When I got in my car this morning to drive to work, the windshield was making horrible crackling sounds. Being that it was out in the 21 degree weather last night, and it's very old, I re-parked it immediately and am working from home. I'm a little scared.

Possibly way too late, I now possess a garage parking spot for my apartment. Well, maybe it will come in useful for my motorcycle.

Which I haven't ridden in MONTHS.

This is partially because I didn't fit in my leathers for awhile. I'm working on fixing that.

Also, it's now too bloody cold.

Also, I kind of want to sell it, but of course it's the wrong season.

And, due to my complete spazziness with the title, it's hard to sell.


New topic: I am officially, but OFFICIALLY, out of debt.

Which I want to change, obviously, by buying a new motorcycle. Perhaps I will attempt to save up for that, first.

Especially since Roommate and I just got the BEST NEWS EVER: WE GOT MOVED UP TO A TWO BEDROOM!

But we'll pay slightly more rent. And we'll need to buy a COUCH. And MORE FURNITURE, YAY! So. Perhaps I should really get to selling that motorcycle.

But then what will I put in my parking spot?

Brief Fascination

...with songs that involve morning sequences.

"Get Up In The Morning", by Chiddy Bang (which majorly samples...)

"Israelites", by Desmond Dekker

"That's Why I", by Dirty (Warning: video is really bad.)

"Goin Back To Cali", by Notorious BIG (That recorded conversation between Diddy and Big at the start of the song is a conversation that the Roommate and I have just about every morning.)

It makes mornings look fun. Which they are, when they're happening to OTHER people.
