I was organizing my playlists (oh, Creatize Zen Vision M, how can I live without you, should I accidentally drop you on the ground?) and finally added the Hedwig soundtrack. That movie is full of awesome.  And John Cameron Mitchell looks better in dresses than me.

Remember sniglets?  Do you have any favorites?  Have you ever made up your own word?  (Now's as good a time as any.)

I remember "accribitz."  A friend (Su! You instigator) actually used it in her final BA paper in Econ.  She would have gotten away with it, if it weren't for the fact that her TA was a non-native English speaker.  He asked her, in his deliciously thick Swedish (norwegian?) accent "What is this 'accribitz'?  I am sorry, my english is not very good and my dictionary does not have this word."   DAMMIT!

My very own sniglet is "jackassery."  It never fails to crack up my best friend.

Take a photo of a tchotchke or souvenir from your travels.

This is a creepy looking dutch milkmaid kitchen magnet.  Ok, it was from my Mom, but it was the best one from my bunch of cheap, cheesy, awful kitchen magnets.

Dear Mr. Tourist:

Did you leave your brain at home?  Is common sense one of the banned carryon items?  No?  So, now I'm assuming they don't have escalators in your hometown.  How else could I explain your actions; for not only did you insist on standing on the left, even after a few requests to move to the right so that others may walk down, but you decided to stand and stop at the end of the escalator, scratching your head.  I know, it must be very hard for you to

1) know your left from your right, and

2) move aside so commuters wouldn't run smack into your large, sweaty back

3) know which train you need to take

But, please.  Do us a favor?  Get the hell out of the way.  You can go be clueless on the platforms, away from the escalators.  It was like something out of a cartoon, what with commutters running into each other, arms windmilling as we tried not to fall over since your very large bulk INSISTED on just standing there as though there was noone else behind you. 

Plus, you smell.  Use some fucking deodorant, you rube.

30 is the new 21

A friend celebrated her 30th bday this past weekend, and so we threw her a little party.  Welcome to the new age bracket, Su!  Rock out, Army Girl! 

It was mad fun, and rowdy, and hot (temperature wise, that is.  The AC conked out on saturday), and we ate massive amounts of deliciousness.  My best friend and I made camoflauge cupcakes and stuck little army men in them.  We hung paratroopers on my chandelier and used camo pattern plates and napkins.   Let's not even get into the whole food thing: we had enough for an army.  *badump-ching!*

Happy birthday, darling – here's to many more years of food, friendship, fun and hot army boys.  And remember, what happens in the army, STAYS in the army.

QotD: My First Car

Tell us a little something about your first car.  Do you have any photos you can share? 
Submitted by tamara.

I had a used Nissan hatchback that had over 100,000 miles on it.  I LOVED that car so much, even though 1) sometimes it would conk out in the highway.  2) the locks would freeze up at the mention of "snow," which mean I'd bring a large cup of water and some de-icer to open the hatchback and have my sister crawl through and open the doors for us 3)  it wouldn't start on some days.

How well do you know your next-door neighbors?

I don't know them at all.  I live in a building where most of the residents have lived here for 20 or more years. All I know is that my next door neighbor smokes indoors. A LOT.  And unfortunately, the smell seeps through the walls of my bedroom.  YUCK.
