Today's Lesson

Library Etiquette.

Vaguely Sad.

Must be June Gloom.

3 Days to San Francisco!

That'll fix everything.

Something Awful

Yeah, or maybe he just leaves pubey little beard hairs in your comb.



It's Friday, Phil is on his way to Italy, and we're drinking.

For Morgan.

Sunflower seeds

Recently I have been tucking a few sunflower seeds into my cheek while working. I cannot think of another snacking item that is so socially divisive as these seeds. They constantly require one to noisily spit small bits of wood from one's mouth, and contain so much sodium as to make one's face bloated and unseemly, so that in just a matter of days one bears resemblance to a George Washington who's gone a round in the ring with Tyson. Particularly if one wears a baldiwig and silk knickers, as I do.

No one enjoys my new habit of eating sunflower seeds.

I like sunflower seeds, too.

I also love to salt this dish!


I like Graham Kerr, personally.

The Lofty Heights of LA

There are a lot of lofts in LA.

I am replete with leftover foodstuffs.

Why are portion sizes so big?

Back to School?!

Yes, it's true.

I am an intern with Phil Hettema and Associates.

No thanks to Dick Lamberski, who told me I was a pain in the ass. But that he loved me anyway.

He doesn't know me from Adam.

No More Deadwood!

Sigh...another season over.

And another year-long wait.

New Dogblog!

He makes a greased-up otter look like a manatee's fat, cough-syrup-addicted momma in steel-belted army boots.

God I love dogs.

Dog School Graduation

Here's the latest graduation pic.

Yeah - it's cute.


Secret no more...

Welcome to Saraya Aqaba.

Wednesday and Gin Don't Mix

Enough said.

It's a rough morning.

Sad Wiener Chewing Gum

I want this!

And the Angry Scotsman gum, too.

Doggs here is my advice for the week.

New Ray's Place.

Don't miss the Hungary question.


Chris gets her tattoo tomorrow!

I have it on my desk RIGHT NOW.

It looks pretty good on my ankle, too.

Tattoos - Passe'?

Who'd a thunk it?

You do that Voodoo...

Today's dilemma...

How do I describe what I do at work? I'm having a hell of a time putting it into writing.

Friday, May 13, 2005

Don't Look at fat people! They know what you're up to.

Ah, Achewood.

The fiddle thing is funny too - so look at it, MORGAN.

Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

Woo hoo! It's Friday - we've made it through another week.

And tonight - DODGER GAME!

Dodger dogs and beer for all!

Octopus Tee Update

Vic has pointed out that I seem to have a recent obsession with the cephalopod.

So, to go along with that - an update on my t-shirt.

They start shipping 24 May. (I prefer the European style of date-writing of late)

So far away...but just in time for San Francisco!

Watch out, world - here I come - with CEPHALOPODS!

Stern Religious Comics

I love those dinosaurs.

And no, I'm not working.

Bed bugs threaten to put bite on U.S. hotel industry

Oh yuck.

Makes me want to avoid hotels.

New Dogblog!

What's up dogs. What is up.

Ah, Spring

And another dog school class is over - advanced class number 3 for those who are counting. And the last one for awhile. It's time to enjoy spring and not spend one night a week in class that takes 3 hours round-trip.

It's going to be 80 degrees all weekend. I'm so happy - no more rain!! I hope.

Okay, enough babble.

Off to troll teh intarweb.

Divorcee of the Week

Mena Suvari.

Tuesday, May 10, 2005


My case for lying down on the job.

This is why I have such crazy dreams.

Best Line Today (so far)

I don’t remember what Joey Bishop’s version sounded like – probably played entirely by second violins.

From The Bleat - where else?

It's in reference to the opening credits of Ocean's Eleven.

Dinosaur Comics - clothing!

My octopus shirt is being made this week!

Oh, I can't wait for it to arrive!!!

From Today's Bleat.

We tried Sea Monkeys the other day, but they didn’t come to life. Just as well. I would have been tempted to put some in the Ant Farm to see if the ants would fight the brine shrimp, or perhaps cross-breed in some unholy experiment that would create socially-organized amphibious insects.

How I wish Lileks had actually done this.

Another Monday

Gene and Chris are sailing the high seas this week...that makes for lonely times on AIM. This means I might have to actually *gasp* - WORK?!?!?

Oh wait - no it doesn't - I have a whole pile of new magazines to read. And a billion stupid things to do for my internship, which is really starting to chap my ass. But I just have to suck it up and deal if I'm ever going to get that piece of paper.

All to be a librarian...it had better be worth it.

However, if Saraya really moves ahead, I'm not going anywhere for the next three years. I'll be damned if I don't see this project finished while I still work here. Of course, it'll probably take that long to get my MLS. So, it should all work out perfectly - 'should' being the operative word in that sentence.

In other news, Morgan and I went to see Crash yesterday. Fine piece of cinema, it was. I laughed, I cried - some people in the theatre screamed. No plot, full of the worst of the racial/ethnic stereotypes. And based in our town, the City of Angels.

Highly recommended.

Morgan and I had a lovely day together - they are few and far between, unfortunately...and I can't wait for when every weekend is like that. Then we'll totally be sick of each other, probably. I'll just send him off to shoot guns with Gene.

SHAG and Disney's 50th Anniversary

Oh my God!

I want it all.

Follow-up to yesterday's Health Fact

What is regular sex?

Wednesday, May 04, 2005

Today's Health Fact

A healthy couple in their mid-20s having regular sex have about a one-in-four chance of conceiving in a given month.



This is what I want to do right now.

So Sleepy

Weather makes me tired - and the prospect of rain does nothing to help.

Nap time!

Quote of the Day

When actress Diane Farr's engagement went bad, she sent out "un-announcement cards" with a simple message: "Single. Picked the wrong guy. Gave him the wrong finger. Thanks for your support."

Yeah, I'm working hard today.

Marc Horowitz - National Dinner Tour

Contemporary Art? Or just a guy in search of a free dinner?

Interesting concept, either way.

Calif. Seeks Leads in Freeway Shootings

Open season on the freeway!

Do bullets go bad?

I need to watch L.A. Story.

Disneyland celebration includes podcast


Runaway Bride

So...do you feel bad for her, or is she a criminal?

I love the fact she went to Vegas...at least she ran away right.

And for the record, I think she just cracked.

I Am Woman!

As in the only one.

I am reigning queen of the office until Thursday - craziness ensues. I have a new friend in NYC named Vinnie - oddly appropriate. He calls me 'Corny'...I let him because he's moving our model on Friday. Or his goons are, as the case may be.



I can't wait for the first of June...
