In Corona Del Mar with the family...

If you want to continue having faith in your vaccum cleaner, I would advise you not to go over your carpet with one of those sticky lint rollers. I think I used 7 sheets of it and went over 75% of the carpet in my place. Disgusting!

I'm playing fetch with the cat right now. I throw the cork, he runs after it, and then he immediately brings it back to me and drops it next to my legs. I think he did it something like 30 times in a row. My DOG has never played fetch like this in all of his ten years.

So, the first day of school was fine. I came home before 5 pm, and I will have no problem finishing everything that I want to do before tomorrow. Amazing!

I've been having dreams about school supplies and ways they could be labeled and organized in my classroom. ugh.

Evidently I take showers with my cat. He is visiting, and last night he decided to gingerly climb into the shower while it was running, like three times.

He also played with my Ipod today while I was at work. I came home and it was in a different room, and out of its case.

Crazy cat.

The Happiest Potties on Earth

Tommorow I'm going to Disneyland!

I haven't been there since I went off to college 6 years ago, which feels like a very long time. I actually had a Disneyland pass for two years in high school. And it was 94 dollars for a year pass!! (SoCal residents only, and it had blackout days when you couldn't go- mostly weekends in the summer and holidays)

The equivalent of the pass I used to get seems like it is $149, and a one day, single park ticket is a whopping $59.

Mmm, Capitalismland. I should see if that website I used to go to about the best Disneyland bathrooms is still up. I think I remember two of the sorta-hidden, cleaner, emptier ones. One is below the restaurant on the lake by Tom Sawyer's Island, and the other is in a building in the New Orleans-type area. I think.

Oh, horray! "The Happiest Potties on Earth: The Restrooms of Disneyland" still exists!

Wow.... Today I tried to listen to country music on KZLA 93.9 out of LA, and it wasn't there. I read online that it suddenly changed into "rhythmic adult contemporary" as of Thursday morning, leaving Orange County/Los Angeles without a country station.


Stupid AND ridiculous. Like we didn't have enough "danceable hit songs from the 1970s to the present day" playing in Los Angeles already...

Yay, someone else who plays Gnarls Barkley, Beyonce, and The Black Eyed Peas.

I'm home in beautiful southern California right now, where the weather is always awesome.

I went to the Sawdust Festival last night, where I purchased that ring you see. It really is a great festival. My mom bought a ring from the same guy who made mine, over 30 years ago. I would still have that ring but I lost the damn thing my freshman year of college. Oh sad day....

Here is Tony sniffing the camera. His location at the time of the photo? Inside a damp bathtub. We also have a picture of him sticking his paw into the toilet water. For some reason, this silly cat seems to LIKE water.

I KNEW it was them! A stinking dent in the door of my car, and I hadn't parked next to anyone besides in my apartment complex carport in days.

No sign of neighbor's car. They work long hours or something. I go to the office, tell them I am 99.9% sure that my neighbors hit my car. They agree to ask them.

Today I go to the office and they tell me that the neighbors said it wasn't them. Also, they can't tell me what apartment has that spot. Also, they technically shouldn't have even asked the neighbors about it because they aren't involved with "personal matters."

So.... I started thinking that maybe - just maybe - I could have been wrong.

I went outside a half hour ago because I noticed their car was in their spot. What a surprise! A bunch of missing paint on the edge of their door that is the exact same height as the dent in my door.

Stupid people. How could you deny it when the evidence is just sitting there??

Tomorrow, when it is light, I will take photos. And tell my apartment complex people that they damn sure better tell me whose spot that is. (Or else I'll have to get all passive agressive on them.)

Uh... so, there is this movie coming out called Snakes on a Plane, and evidently the plot is that there are snakes, on a plane. The soundtrack includes the creatively named "Snakes on a Plane," by Cobra Starship.

I said something about the man who sells flowers and uh... seems eccentric... in my neighborhood in this post. I mentioned that I needed to take a picture of him, but now I don't! Because he was in the newspaper! Ta da! Man throwing flowers wildly into the air, with My Size Barbie hairdo busts on top of his car. According to the article, he's been doing this, on the same street, for over ten years.

I went to the Ice Capades today, and a gay time was had by all. (Especially by the guy in rolled up cargo pants with black footless leggings underneath, wearing two anklets. And one was pink.)

No more ads!

Dude! Why did no one tell me that my blog was suddenly causing pop up ads?? There were none when I look at in Safari, so I had no idea.

They should be gone now. I figured out that it was my stats counter, which was recently changed to a new pro-ad buisness model. I figured out how to edit the code from this site, comment number 7. Please let me know if pop-ups appear again for some reason.

I wonder how long I will be able to get away with presenting my college ID to get student admission to the movies...

Anyways, Little Miss Sunshine was great! I reccomend it. The ending was so funny that I cried laughing. The last part of the movie was filmed in Ventura, not "Redondo Beach" as they pretended it was.

On a final note, I'd like to say that my cat's favorite toy is a wine cork.

Things and stuff etc.

1. I want to go see Little Miss Sunshine.
2. Cats That Look Like Hitler. Dot com.

Dude, Tim Allen is all fat now.
