today feels weird. one, i didn't have to get up early. as some of you may know, i'm only working casually lately. but friday, i dedicate to job hunting. partly because most job applications have to be in either on a friday or monday. and partly because i have to get up early on fridays anyways, because it's garbage day. so it works out well. however, since this is good friday, no garbage day. i tried to sleep in but it didn't really work. i did lounge in bed for a bit watching 'cold case files' on a&e (remember when a&e, actually meant arts and entertainment?).
a couple of years back on good friday, i was watching 'green acres'. as one does on good friday. now tv, the religious tv station used to run two hours of 'family entertainment' from 4-6. leave it beaver, green acres and i can't remember what else. they had hosts who would always tie jesus into whatever the show was about.. ie if beaver had only accept the lord jesus christ, ward wouldn't have had to punish him. or something like that. anyways, 'green acres' ended and the two chicks that hosted came back. and i swear, one of them said. "it's good friday. it is the day we celebrate the death of jesus, " and then she paused. for a long time. finally she continued and went on about the resurrection of christ. i couldn't stop laughing. i couldn't stop thinking yay! jesus is dead! where is my party hat?
ok, allison, i'm at my computer, my stomach feels ok and i'm going to try the gum out now. wow, it smells like chocolate syrup. it really does. i've unwrapped the piece and it has that weird white powder on it like you find on the bubble gum that comes with hockey cards. or does all bubble gum have that? when i'm not working, i don't chew gum all that much but when i am, i chew it like a fiend. but never bubble gum. i like the intense flavours. oh, but i digress. i can't get over how much it smells like chocolate syrup. however, it does not taste like chocolate syrup. it tastes all powdery. oh, wait, that's the powder. hmmm, it doesn't have a huge intense kick of chocolate, but every so often, you get a taste of it. it does not however, taste evil and make me spit it out. i think it tastes more chocolaty the more you blow bubbles. and it's definitely more of a fake chocolate taste. i think i will bring this tomorrow and make my friend chew a piece. she will probably throw up. good times.
it's friday, time for random top ten. i'm curious about this week. i'm going on a little road trip tomorrow (destination unknown!) and as always, i'm in charge of the tunes. i was cleaning out the mp3 player yesterday in preparation and right now, i don't have a lot of songs on it.
as i prepare my player, i'm trying to remember a bunch of stuff. no kate bush. go easy on the rap. not too much new stuff. this is all for the co-pilot. for me, i have to remember, watch the lengths of the songs (eight minute songs tend to drive me crazy in a car). watch the feedback. not too much electronica. make sure some new stuff gets on.
so let's see what we have today.
1. morning glory - oasis
2. i'm your man - nick cave
3. gamila (the night is beautiful) - emad sayyeh
4. get in line - juliana hatfield
5. magic bus - the who
6. a song for the lovers - richard ashcroft
7. gong gong - sportsguitar
8. live forever - oasis
9. i'd do anything - simple plan
10. oh! chicago - yahoos
ps. i find the gum rather unfulfillingly. my stomach thinks it is getting chocolate but alas, nothing. now i am hungry. ok, i was hungry before, but now i'm really hungry.
new nook - There has been a great deal of hiatusing going on around these parts lately. The new hammock is an especially delicious place to read away those hot summe...
