Friday Fragments

Short and sweet, like an Asian hooker

  • Plinky is now Rank 8 and now gets random messages from strangers when wandering around towns.

  • It's kind of like being a famous rock star, but without the ho's and fresh fruit backstage.

  • The funny part about my #163 standing in last week's tally isn't that I actually made it to 163, it's that there were 162 people with even less of a life than me.

  • By the end of the grueling weekend, our team had won 43 games and lost 30.

  • After each day, I was not thinking clearly and unable to type complete sentences.

  • It was kind of like being drunk but without any alcohol.

  • I never get drunk -- the only time I've ever been drunk without full memory of the night was (aptly) on my 21st birthday.

  • True to BU form, that instance occurred in the privacy of my apartment where apparently I annoyed the snot out of Anna by trying to teach her how to play Super Mario Kart every five minutes.

  • Super Mario Kart is still the greatest multiplayer racing game ever made. Just because all the later sequels were in 3D doesn't make them better.

  • I always picked Koopa as a driver.

  • To this day I've never driven a manual transmission.

  • In sixth grade, my friend, Daniel, had his birthday party at a go-kart raceway and the owner said I was too short to drive. I cried.

  • I didn't actually bawl, but I certainly teared up.

  • When I was a little boy, I was playing with one of those floor mops with the metal piece that squeezes out the sponge. I mauled my pinky in it.

  • My dad got frustrated while dressing the wound and told me to stop crying because crying never fixes anything.

  • I stopped crying immediately and have only every cried a handful of times since then.

  • The Daniel in the crying anecdote is the same Daniel whose birthday was on June 21. I've only seen him once since sixth grade, but we correspond every now and again.

  • The Liz who has the same birthday as Daniel is from college, and I haven't seen her since the Gator Bowl in 2002 where I had the flu and transformed a motel bed into large sea sponge of sweat.

  • I think she moved to Nashville to do vocal things. It's a shame that she had such a beautiful voice but got migraines every time she sang.

  • Migraines can eat me.

  • Female voices I can listen to for a long time without irritation: Nina Persson (both young and old) , Natalie Imbruglia , Alizeé , early Gwen Stefani, Kylie Minogue, and Shaznay Lewis .

  • I used to include Dido in that list, but I no longer find her voice interesting. It's just kind of "there" like Katie Melua's.

  • I like the staticity that her voice brings to her tunes though -- it really works .

  • I would have more samples, but making clips is a pain in the ass, and Fridays are not about pains in the asses, unless you are an on-call hemorrhoid surgeon for the weekend.

  • I am not in the above profession, but my weekend will involve some old farts.

  • This weekend I am shopping for colours with Anna (for the newly lit bedroom), having my parents over for dinner, and going to a barbeque at Kathy and Chris's to see their kittens and celebrate their joint 30 year birthdays.

  • Old farts.

  • Speaking of old farts, Nikki Giraldi Homoroc's birthday is on Saturday and Susannah Rosenberg's is on Sunday. Happy Birthday!

  • Have a great weekend!
