not that i didn't already know, but the fact that i have the best boyfriend in the world was reaffirmed this afternoon, as he visited my at work and gave me 2 CDs. The first one had "Citizen's Band" by SFA on it. I know it shouldn't mean much, but it totally does.
if anyone wants me to e-mail it to them or something, let me know, as i'm feeling generous and willing to, "share the wealth," as they say...
the second disc contained a mix of Porcupine Tree songs and it's quite ace.
My day hath been made. I'm so easily impressed, I know.
There honestly hasn't been a whole lot going on, between my part-time job and ONE class... I got a $25 raise at the Slice which was pretty tits, considering I have 2 assignments this month. So, I'll be getting $75 an article, if (and it usually does) run in all 3 zones. that was a nice surprise since i haven't contributed since early March and was pretty sure they had forgotten about me.
I'm also eagerly awaiting for the latest issue of Hyperactive to come out, as I have not one, but two pieces in there... We'll see... I've yet to see the final copies of either, but judging by the democratic editing process, I don't think my ideas were too violated. It would be a relief, honestly. They're both small pieces, so to see them in their intended form would be awethome. it has yet to happen, between the Scribe and the Slice. I think the only piece I've written that I was satisfied with was the Eyes Caught Fire piece. And that's rather sad, considering the number of articles I've written in the past 2.5 years. ANYWHO. Heh... It's funny [to me] how I'm taking these pieces of "work" so seriously... One piece has a Peter North reference and the other just disses on middle-aged white jam rock. But... still... Just don't fuck up my shit, man.
hmm... Operation: iPod Upload is still underway. such a grueling process. but it must be done... and it must be done before we leave for vacation.
Also, really digging the Futureheads. Yeah.
Falling in love is also quite cool.
Speaking of love, wings are happening tonight. I finally healed from the damage incurred at WingFest 2000 and have been able to eat various flavors of wings without feeling like i'm gonna hurl every time. "thanks for all of your support. it's been a long haul, but in the end, God held out a hand, and we were able to pull through in that last quarter."
that's not a real quote per se, but i imagine it's been said by some sweaty beefcake, in some locker room, at the end of some super bowl game, some year.
even though i told my boss i'd stay through the summer, i think i'm gonna start poking around elsewhere anyway. which, with my luck, ultimately means nothing remotely interesting will be available and i'll end up stuck there until August, as planned. i'm just sick of seeing the same damn faces everyday. and i've never really liked my boss, or my coworkers, except Heather cos she's pretty sweet. a few more months shouldn't matter, but, oi.
Still looking forward to Trail of Dead and Spoon AND Dave Attell... More so than graduating, actually. Rocking out with your cock out always wins in the end, whatcanisay?
that's about it, really. May is bound to be probably one of the busiest months ever. and anyone who wants a grad announcement should e-mail me their address. E-mail within 5 minutes of reading this post and receive a free naked photo!
Lastly, oh snap, Mother's Day is coming up. And my mom has such expensive taste. Sigh.
