"We’re Americans, with a capital ‘A’, You know what that means? That means that our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world."

hola blogworld.

Soda.
I’m on day 31 of no soda and the only difference I can tell is that I’m tired in the afternoon and feel cheap at restaurants.

iTunes.
I’m currently trying to go through and rate all of my music in iTunes. This may not seem like a big deal to most, but when you’ve got almost 20,000 songs it becomes a bit of a task. So far i’ve got about 19% of my music rated. It has been fun going back and rediscovering some old tunes. In the past week alone I’ve gone back and listened to all of my Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Skindred, NIckel Creek and Pearl Jam. I’ve also discovered there is music on my iTunes that I don’t recall ever owning; Duran Duran, David Bowie (Labyrinth soundtrack), Neurosis, and James Taylor.

Toys.
I was in Target the other day and noticed that the aisles for toys, sporting goods and electronics were all right next to each other. I guess when you graduate from one to other they don’t want you to get lost.

Books.
Does anybody else read more than one book at a time? I’ll start like three books at once and rotate through depending on the day. Right now I’m reading Band of Brothers, Chasing Daylight, and Lead Like Jesus.

Yet another…
A few weeks back I was hanging out at the coffee shop by the office chillin with the baristas pretending to be working. Anyways, we got into a pretty cool discussion about church and after a while it ended up being just me and baristachica. The discussion turned to flirting after a little while, which is awkward enough, but still cool. So we’re talking, I crack a joke, she laughs and farts. Unfortunately she was sitting on a wooden chair which doesn’t exactly absorb sound. Needless to say she was pretty embarrassed, but I assured her she would fit in just fine with my family. Now every time I go in to chill everyone laughs and she gets red.

Happy 40th Birthday to:

Pualy Shore

Stripes.

My friend djliz got me hooked on the 365 Project this past year, and it’s been a blast. This year she started a new 365 project with ‘Stripes’ as the theme. At first I thought she meant the Bill Murray movie from back in the day. Fortunately she’s focused on finding stripes in everyday moments, and creating a sweet gallery in the process. check it out:

Camera.
I’d like to get a decent camera. Any suggestions?

Mi Hermana.

I always call her Shar. Back in the day when she was little it was Sharah, and over time it got shortened a little, and then when clueless came out it was cemented. Anyways, the other night i was chatting with her and accidently called her shat. I’m still laughing at that.

Supercuts.
Should just be called ‘cuts’.

Guitar Center.
Have you ever gone to a music store and asked to check out a guitar, only to have the employee start off on a five minute metal solo to show you ‘what the guitar can do’? Any time that happens to me, I ask them to join my band. If they seem interested I tell them i’m in an Spice Girls tribute band and we need a Sporty spice.

Clipboard.
Speaking of customer service, if you ever want to get the attention of store employees, walk around with a clipboard. Look around, and pretend like you’re taking notes.

Cap.
I finally found the Padres cap I was looking for:

next up is the 90’s astros cap.

Movies.
I wonder if this has happened to anyone else. All of your friends hype up a movie that you don’t see until months, maybe years later, then when you go to talk about the movie everyone looks at you like, “why are you talking about Sixth Sense”?

Indian Food.
Still not a fan.

Gold Stars.
Should be handed out at the office.

Army Surplus Store…
T Shirts are the most comfortable shirts I’ve ever owned. At $4 a pop they’re a really good investment if you’re in the need of some decent shirts. The fact that they are logo-free is also a plus.

  1. Mighty Mighty Bosstones- love them! Coffee Chick- SHUT UP! I would be so embarrassed. I didn’t know you lived in Seattle. I’ve always wanted to visit Seattle. Good post!
