If it’s true, I’m so happy for them! Holly is the only one of the three girlfriends who seems to genuinely be in love with Hugh. She has said on The Girls Next Door numerous times that she wants to have kids with him before 30. She’s 27. (He’s almost 81.)
Yay for Holly! Hope that Bridget and Kendra get a nice severance package before the mansion door hits them in the bunny tail on the way out.
Boooooring. The only one I care about is mint chocolate chunk, which I’ve been able to get at scoop shops for years. Happy to be able to get it pre-packed, but it’s not a new flavor. Congrats to Stephen Colbert for getting his own flavor, though!
Depending on what I’m doing my handwriting changes drastically. Following are examples of different styles of writing I have. Click on any image to enlarge. The only doctored one is the grocery list, from which I removed Hay’s real name. The rest are not identifying in any way, but you’re welcome to read every single line of every single page image and see for yourself.
Live meeting notes (from a live webcast I “attended” yesterday; the inspiration for this post):
Study notes (from a C++ class I took back in 2002):
Homework notes (same C++ class):
Grocery list (from a few years ago — no more kitten chow for the girls):
Take-out order for me and Hay:
Brainstorming (with myself) notes:
Live presentation (from a conference at MIT in 2003):
(Please note that LDAP + Kerberos + OS X has come a long way in 4+ years so none of that information is particularly relevant anymore. Like you care.)
In case it’s not obvious, I keep all my notes. I’m guessing if my handwriting were to be analyzed it would say: crazy, sociopath, psycho, schizophrenic, and a host of other buzz words to do with general unfitfulness. Take-out order is my favorite.
The more thoughtful I am about the subject the better my penmanship becomes. Hay makes me do all the holiday cards because he thinks my handwriting is pretty. I’m flattered and ungrateful at the very same time!
Question: How come you never post about American Idol anymore? Answer: Because this season is crap. Okay, let me qualify: All the guys are crap. A bunch of the women are good, but it’s all been done before. We know Lakisha will be voted off by mistake and that will leave someone who shouldn’t win to win. The only entertaining thing so far has been that Lakisha tries to dress like Aretha Franklin but ends up looking like a lady of the night. (Sorry, but that outfit last week said “I charge $20.”)
Question: What do you think about the Antonella Barba scandal? Answer: (This one’s for Jen.) That girl does not deserve to be on the show. (Dan, I know you disagree.) Her naughty pictures are inconsequential. The only thing carrying her through so far is VotefortheWorst.com. She will receive no more of my blog time.
Question: Will you ever be reviewing the Idol performances??? Answer: For now, please go see Dan at Steel Kaleidoscpes, Rickey.org, and MJ’s Idol blog. All three do incredible reviews of the performances, and I always find myself being able to articulate my thoughts through their analyses. When we get to top 12 I will likely be much more chatty about the performances. I don’t have much to say about people in which I am not yet invested, if that makes any sense.
Question: Do you think Paula is drunk? Answer: I think she is crazy, but her hair was really pretty last night!
I do normally chew with my mouth closed, because I was raised properly in that one respect, but I think I may have just inhaled an entire snack bag of Lay’s salt & vinegar chips without bothering to chew. NUM. In case you were wondering what Poppy’s all-time favorite chip flavor is, you just found out. The brand of chip is inconsequential, just keep the vinegar coming to me.
Conversely, I’m not so keen on the Godiva dark chocolate coffee drink. Believe it or not (I don’t), it’s too sweet. These words come from a woman who adds 3-4 teaspoons of sugar to 8 oz of coffee. I guess I don’t like Belgian chocolate mixed with coffee, because my tongue loves the sweet Starbucks equivalent which is made with American-made Ghirardelli, I believe. Don’t get me wrong, I loooooove Belgian chocolates, especially when I’m standing in Belgium at the time, but I think they’re complex enough without adding a coffee element to distract from their unique flavor. Anyone else have a comment about this? I assure you I don’t prefer American chocolate over chocolates of the world, considering my favorite chocolates are Cadbury (made in England, not the Hershey kind) and Lindt.
As I’ve mentioned before, I love Paperlilies. I can’t help it, she’s just amazing to me. I have been figuring out this whole Stickam thing and added her as one of my friends at which time I checked out her video section. She has a great video inspired by Endlessjoe (her staring contest opponent) about 50 things she has done in her lifetime. I can’t embed it, but here’s a link to the page.
That one vlog-of-sorts makes her a completely real person to me rather than the celebrity she had been before. I think I’m totally going to steal the idea and post my own 50 things video in the next few weeks. If I do I’ll let you all know so you can stare at me while I tell you all the things I’ve done in my life that are worth telling.
