What the hell is in asparagus?
So I went out for sushi last night. Jamie, Kennedy (like the President), her ex?-boyfriend, and I. Dollar sushi night at Ko·Fusion means a variety of 10 different sushi, and it changes every week. So last night they had some nutty ones, and I don't mean they had almonds in them. There was a chicken one, which was kinda OK. There was a mango one, which was awful, and there was this super spicy one, with a stalk of asparagus in it. This piece of asparagus couldn't have been longer then 1-1/2 inches. It was tiny is my point. Then after downing five glasses of water (I'm off caffeine, so no more soda with dinner), I had to pee.

So we all know that after eating asparagus your pee smells funny. But seriously...1-1/2 inches is not that much asparagus. Yet, it still smelled really funny! I thought you had to eat a bunch of it. Apparently not. I kinda remember this movie from the 80's where these nerds are sitting around eating different amounts of asparagus to figure out how much you have to eat to make it smell funny. They shoulda just asked me, the answer is 1-1/2 inches.
So sushi was fun. It's a good Monday night activity and its only like 10 bucks. So if you are trying to "casually" bump into me to "catch-up", try Monday nights at Ko·Fusion, or Tuesday nights at Boltini.
Do NOT waste your time
I watched a movie last night. It was called Zodiac. You should NOT waste your time and see this movie. Not only is the ending disappointing...its LONG.

Ah fuck it, I'm gonna spoil it.
They don't even catch the guy. It takes 20 years and they don't even catch the guy. Thankfully it only took 2 hours and 40 minutes of my life away. I can't imagine what it was like for the people in the movie who wasted twenty-fucking-years trying to catch this guy and didn't even do it. I would be pulling my hair out over that one.
I mean, it WAS based off a real case, so I guess I should not have expected everything to be tied up all neat and tidy, but for fucks sake, maybe you should have picked a different serial killer to make a movie about. PLUS there is this point in the movie where the killer sends a letter to the police asking who will play him in the movie they make about this. Didn't we just play into his fucked up little game? Give him the recognition he so wanted? Whatever...don't waste your time. I did, and with all the time I wish I could get back in life...those 2 hours and 40 minutes are at the top.
It was a complete waste of time.
The Squeak Has Claws
...and she uses them. The other day (and by the other day, I mean a week ago) Judd threw "The Squeak" on me, and like any good kitten, her reaction was to claw the shit out of what ever she landed on. I had nine little puncture wounds on my chest, and one scratch mark. The scratch mark is just now getting close to healing.

The other thing she uses those claws for is to climb....on me. You should see the damage to my back! It looks like I'm into SM or some shit, but it's just that darn cat climbing around my shoulders.
Nobody loves you Squeak...and you have NO personality!
What a weekend
First and foremost, my congratulations go out to the cast and crew of CUTC's Beauty and the Beast. Really a stellar performance. The sets were some of the best I have seen, and the actors were actually quite good. All this and it's from volunteers. That's what surprised me most...these cats didn't get paid one cent. They just loved what they do, from building the sets, to the marketing, and even the actual actors. Great job all of you.

Secondly...the basement is getting cleaner and cleaner (along with the rest of the house). I hauled crap out of there that was there when I moved in 7 years ago! I hauled things out of there that were Drew's. Also I finally got around to getting all the light bulbs in there. Which sounds like a simple task and it was, but it took me like, 3 years to do it. If you ask me, with all the time Judd spends down there I would have figured he would have just spent the 3 bucks on the bulbs by now, but whatever :)
New desk. It's this flat top executive looking thing. All white and sleek with just gorgeous clean lines. Looks really nice with all my Apple stuff on it. It was a chore getting it together, but with a little help, I'm a happy camper.
Next up, ant killer in the yard (I seem to have acquired a small colony in the back corner of my yard, killing weeds, and fertilizing.
I have a line on a five person hot tub. Like the real deal, not a jacuzzi like before, and not a build your own like before that. No no. This might actually happen. Apparently a friend of a friend is trying to get rid of one, and if it's still there, its coming home with me like a cheap floozy at Boltini. Oh and Flach, I don't want to hear any I told you so's.
Who does this kitty remind you of?

Beer, meat, and music
Yep, me and the roomies just got done with an impromptu stoop. Beer, meat and veggies were consumed, music played, and random guests showed up. To top it all off...Molly is gonna go whip us up a peach/rhubarb cobbler for letting her stay here over the weekend. Totally unnecessary, but hey....free cobbler.

Last night I was playing door man for a private party. Nothing really of note happened, except when a gentleman (and I use the term loosely) wanted to walk down the ally. Now I had been expressly told by the head of the party to not let anyone walk or bike down the ally. So I informed the gentleman that they had a special permit and until 9:00 this was NOT a public ally. He requested to see said permit, and this is where the Elite of Champaign managed to be ass holes, and make me look like one as well in one fell swoop. So I run off to find the head of the party and tell her that there is an issue, and the proof of the permit has been requested. Well all of a sudden the elitist attitude disappeared and she says "Does he just want to walk through....oh this is so stupid...really? He wants to see the permit? Oh, just let him walk through."
Saturday, August 11, 2007
So now, I have to walk back to the guy and inform him that through the graces of the lady of the ally, he can now walk down the sacred path. Needless to say, he was totally understanding, and did NOT mutter something under his breath as he walked past...not.
Oh and one more thing, I have decided to paint my kitchen a sage green color, and change the flooring to a black and white check. Any suggestions for other rooms? I need ideas.
Non note-worthy news
I have a bunch of small things that don't really make good news, but maybe if I put them all together, it will be an interesting read?

- My brother is in town this week, last night we hung out at Stanage, shot the shit and drank beers on the stoop. I wish it was not so wet outside, so my receiver would not overload and we could have listened to tunes, but it will dehumidify here in a bit and it will fix itself
- Judd has this lady caller these days. She came over last night and he wouldn't let her in the house to meet us (as in they talked at the door for a second and then both went out). I guess he doesn't trust Eddie and I to behave around is friend.
- Came across Megan Coblentz-soon-to-be-Kelly's wedding website. Feel free to visit and leave her a message...you know I did ;)
- Door County Jamie called after bingo the other night. Looks like she will be back in town at some point and wants to go get sushi.
- Who's gonna be in town the 16th-19th? Beauty and the Beast is playing at the Virgina Theater, and I want to go. My friends are the producer and the director, and a friend of a friend is playing Belle.

Did it go ok? I'd venture a no. The place ended up packed, and everyone had a pretty good time. I think it could have gone better, I was basically just doing the things Greg does. I think the audience had more fun than I think they did. So after all was said and done, I made 70 bucks, for drinking and calling numbers. And I was gonna be there anyways, so I guess it was nice to be paid to be there, rather than paying to be there. Oh...and then at the end of the night, I go up to close out my tab, and its all taken care of, thanks Robbie :)

Oh, and what was the best part of the evening? Putting my mom in the cage for not listening to me when I asked her what a glory hole was, and then getting the real answer from Rob.
Oh well...I'll get em next week.
Ellie never hated me
So I went to a going away party last night. Robb threw a little going away party for two of his employees, and Cole invited me to go with him. Cole is off to California to become a lawyer and Ellie is off to DC to study art history.
Tuesday, August 07, 2007
In the past I had been told that Ellie HATED me, so I almost didn't go. And not like a seething hatred, can't be in the same room as me, hate, but like a mild disgust and would bring the party down hate. But it WAS Cole's last night, and while everyone always makes that promise that they will stay in touch and visit and all that, it's never true. So I took my last opportunity to hang out and went.
Turns out Ellie never hated me. While she does have a chip in her shoulder against men in general (her words...not mine), she does not specifically hate me. Glad I figured that out during her last 12 hours in Champaign :)
Perhaps that whole conversation was my needy side coming out. I had kinda been getting it from all angles that day and pissing people off left and right. I think by the end of the day, I counted nine people who were mad, hurt, pissed off, or never wanted to see me again. And being the glutton for punishment, I just had to ask her if she really hated me, to make it a nice round 10. Thankfully it didn't happen.

O 69, the dirtiest number in bingo
Are YOU going to be in Champaign sometime in the next 2 weeks? Were you thinking about coming down, but didn't have a good enough reason? Now you have one. For the next two weeks on Tuesdays, at 7:00 be at Boltini...running Bingo. That's right. I'll be calling numbers, reading lesbian erotica, and commenting on YOUR dirty cha cha hole.

I guess Marv will be out of commission for the next 2 weeks due to CUTC's Beauty and the Beast opening, so he needed a replacement. Someone who can keep the kids interested and coming back while he is away.
It's a lot of responsibility, and I would be lying if I said I wasn't scared to get up in front of all those people and try and be funny...but I'm gonna do it, and I'm gonna give it my best shot.
I think even my parents are gonna come out and enjoy my antics one of these nights, so make sure you say hi to them too if you show up. I can't guarantee a good time, but I think it will at least be kinda fun ;)
