Au Revoir

Well, it's my last day of work. They day that's been pushed back at least 3 or 4 times. They threw me a going away party including cake and a card where my friends in the office put little inside jokes. I like the people, the work is alright-but i'm going to miss a steady paycheck the most. Either i have to start churning out a lot more Ebay sales or another job best pop up real soon.

It's true

There will come a time in your life when you will become infatuated with a single soul. For this person you'd do anything and not think twice about it, but when asked why ... you have no answer. You'll try your whole life to understand how a single person can affect you as much as they do, but you'll never find out. And no matter how badly you hate it or how badly it hurts ... you'll love this person without regret, for the rest of your life.


i'm kind of convinced this girl looks like a love child of amy and i. anyone agree?

Cough Cough

Ah, sick again. Though i'm pretty much sick 365 days a year with crappy allergies, i have (for the 2nd time in a month) horrible nose running, cough, and congestion. At least this christmas it will be tissues and cough syrup instead of holding my head over a trash can 15 times in one day like last year.

In other news, tonight is the 10th annual Christmas Eve Eve party where Janice, Adam, Myself and others will drink Diana Punch, film a Golden Girls video, and annoy my parents with our loudness. YAY!

For Sale

I put some of my stuff up on Ebay!

The City that Reeds

I just saw the "Girls of Dundalk Calender" and it's probably as trashy as you'd expect. If i thought the Men of Mt. Vernon were a bit under par for calender boys-these girls are far under par for centerfolds. They're the trashy, unattractive women you'd find in-well Dundalk. And these are the ones who WON the audition? Did no one know of the contest?
Hurry and get yours soon!

Thank goodness for the Ottobar Flea Market this weekend and not just because of the liquor filled flea piƱata. I sold some stuff! Ya, there were some 1 dollar yard-saleish items, but most importantly-i sold 4 Le Rat shirts!

Maybe Good, Maybe Bad

Steve and I headed to Brewer's Art last night for my first tasting of a Festivus before going to the Ottobar to see H20. Knowing how late Ottobar shows run, I figured we'd be good just chilling at Brewers and going over around 11:30. Well we rolled up as they're playing about their 10th song but we got in free! I was quite dissapointed though, I would have preferred spending $12 to see a lot more songs...but it was still a kickass show.
And I can't regret being at Brewer's Art-a place where Nakia hit on someone for Hilary's sake. We also went to Central after the show and Steve had to remind me of my drunken events such as trying to touch a huge black girl's ass, throwing some bricks around, and calling a group of guys "black jackets." Steve also had some tasks-like asking a man for a cigarette (who pleasantly placed it in between Steve's lips.) Ahh....good times.

"Dating Sucks"

Toward the end of this book, i've been finding more and more humorous (and experienced) sections. This is my favorite passage so far in a chapter discussing the 'sexual revulsion.' Currently she's talking about 'physical shortcomings':

"There's another inherent problem with a Johnson that's anything but Magic, and this one tends to be quite embarassing. Since this guy's hot dog can't quite fill your bun, he pumps a lot of air inside of you while you're having sex, which comes out of you afterward as one large vaginal fart. You lie there mortified, when he's the one that should be embarrassed since he has a dick the size of an o.b. tampon."

Thanks Ray

Le Rat

After 2 attempts at publicly selling my clothes this weekend, i came to a few conclusions.

I started making clothes because i saw things i wanted but couldn't afford. Or I had ideas of garments that i never saw in clothing stores. So after years at doing this for my own good, i decided a fashion show might be cool to show off the stuff i made. Then another fashion show, then another fashion show-and at this point I was making clothes that i thought looked cool on people, would look cool on stage, and sometimes just pumping out clothes to have more than 3 models at the show. Well, now i've gotten used to making more and more clothes and really enjoy it, so i'm doing more than just 1 shirt a month-in fact, i've made at least 6 or 7 things in the past month, and not all for my own good. I don't consider myself an artist by any means, but i'm understanding how much it sucks to create and share your work but nobody really cares about it but you! Le Rat is unique but kind of "dressed up"-not stuff people would want to wear on a daily basis. I decided to take a stab at making some wearable, "punk rock" clothes, that i figured people might be more into. I search ebay everyday for one of a kind, handmade, DIY items, and they seem to sell well and have a good market.

Ebay hasn't given me loads of money, so i decided to go another route-bring the clothes to the people, literally! I attended an arts and crafts show where i thought all the vendors would appreciate each other. Well, the only one interested was some junky lady who'd have to "save up" 20 dollars. Last night, i went to local punk rock show, where there were a good amount of girls who cut up shirts, sewed zebra print strips on things, put patches and studs everywhere-and i thought hey, these girls will totally dig my stuff! But, here are my conclusions:

1. Apparently buying one of a kind items isn't trendy-especially at a show setting. Though it seems like the perfectly fitting scene for such items, these kids like Hot Topic as much as everyone else
2. There's a really awkward feeling when you walk up to a merch table. Sure, some bands and sellers can be snobby and mean, but most of the time the people behind the tables are just happy to talk and really interested in everyone at the show. I really wish people didn't feel awkward and were comfortable taking 20 minutes to look at all the stuff displayed
3. I don't and never will plan on making things just so people will buy them. I like to make what i would wear and what i have ideas for. If people don't want it, i guess i'll just deal with that.

"I'm not paid enough for that"

I almost caught myself saying "if she expects me to find all these duplicates-i won't" but i stopped myself. I get paid to work here-it's my job. I may not get paid as well as the real employees, get paid vacation, and I may have to sit and answer phones by myself for hours while everyone else attends the catered holiday party, but it's my job, and i will do what i'm told.
I was at JoAnn's the other night and completely annoyed at this employed woman, who in front of 10 customers, was complaining that her boss asked her to shove a cart full of boxes to the back. She yelled, "They don't pay me enough for that!" Well what, miss, do they pay you for? To stand around, cut material, and complain about life? To make it seem like your life is worth much more than the rest of us? Or how about when I go to the McDonalds to order a value meal, or even just a cone-it's such a chore and hassle for the workers to get my money and extend their arm out of the window to my car. What is so horrible about working? And if they hate it, why don't they quit and find something they like to do? The world is ruled by money, and money is earned by working, so to all those people-get over it!

New Yoawk

I wasted my blogging time and enery to post on MY Space about last weekend's New York trip. But aside from the crazy pictures and people, drunken nights, and glorious window shopping, I came back from the weekend truly happy. Perhaps it's the holiday spirit that's got to me, or seeing Adam and laughing 24-7, or seeing my old apartment and remembering good memories.
Whatever the case, I've come to the conclusion that I'm quite content with my current situation. So I don't attend school anymore, play in ensembles, or party/hang out with my best friends-I work at a stress free job, have no deadlines, and finally get to be on my own. I don't have 10 best friends here, but I have Hilary and Robert and know more punk kids to go to shows with than I ever have. I'm going to sell my clothes publicly, I've got no strings attached to anything, and although this has all been true for the past 6 months, it's just hit me that perhaps things aren't so bad afterall.
Then again, it could just be the good old holiday season.
