Vacation Day 4 (of 4)

by chinwhat at 7:53 a.m.
I woke up early (7) thanks to this funny dream I had. It was about the Hamas and Fatah. Instead of explaining it and it not sounding all that great, you'll just have to trust me that it was hilarious... well, as hilarious as a dream about the Hamas/Fatah conflict can be.

Unfortunately for myself, my neck is also killing me which means i can't get back to sleep. I'm going downtown today and i'm probably going to try to find a spot where I can take a nap. Unfortunately, I can't think of too many potential places. i'm thinking the new HT0 beach if they still have the Muskoka chairs - which they didn't the last time i went through. Or maybe on the subway. Thanks to Google and the Interweb, some people suggested a couple of libraries. I think I might have to try that!

...and I'll really need a nap since I played Rainbow6 till 2am last night. Stupid XBox kept freezing on me. At one point I got the "rings of death" again and appropriately shat my pants. I think it'll eventually crap out. Maybe this time I'll get one of the *new* XBoxes with the HDMI output, but I won't hold my breath...

Claire Danes is on the cover of this weeks EyeWeekly. For some strange reason, I've always found her attractive (for a white girl). Why? I have no fucking idea. >shrugs<

There's a sale on "Sunday's Official Morning Cereal" Turboz (pronounced "tur-bawz") at PriceChopper. It goes for the low low price of $2.49 (or something like that). Sure, it's $2.49 more expensive than the price Al got them for, but still, they're on sale...

RushHour3 comes out today and I really want to see it even though it kinda looks like shit.

Guess who's coming to clean my room and guess who I'm going shopping with? Yup, that's right! Talib Kweli is here Aug 30 and Com is here Sept 24!

I saw this ad in the local fish wrap:

No, I don't really think I'll be going to see Benny Hinn. I'm just putting this out there. But I think it'd be real kick ass to see him... well, kick ass! Fucking up heathens until they become believers! ...on second thought, maybe I should go... what with the whole "'Let's take a fake picture of theLast Supper' except it'll be us" debacle and what not...

I have a theory that no one really reads Out of Office notices. I mean, folks will note the dates and who the alternate contact is, but that's it. But then again, I guess nobody really puts anything interesting in their OoO's. Here's what I put for mine:

Please contact HelpDesk.IT.TRO for the week of August 7 - 10 as I will be away from the office. I will be polishing up on my nunchaku skills, bow hunting skills and computer hacking skills.

Vacation Day 2 (of 4) Part 2

Night Edition

Cathy's mom, TitaElenita, came back from the Philippines earlier this week. I asked her to get me a straight razor for shaving. Why? I have no real reason other than it looks pretty cool. I mean, it seems so... so... gentleman-ly! (plus its cheaper than buying razor blade refills! And good for the environment!) Back in the day, I remember getting a little clean up at the barber shop Frank&Jimmy's and thinking "wow, this is sooooo kewl!!!"

Anywho, as I was saying, TitaElenita came back from the Philippines this week and she got me not one, but two straight razors! (and a banig. Thanks! Or as fobs would say, "salamat!") One's a traditional one, good weight on it. (the black one) The other has a little compartment where you replace the actual blade. Its really light, but felt cheaper.

When Cathy gave them to me, she reminded me that I needed to disinfect them first. Good thing she mentioned that! Unfortunately, I was all out of Barbersal (what the hell is that crap anyways? And how come I never see anything inside that jar of blue water??? Maybe its just there for show...) so i decide to throw the razor into a pot with some water and turn the stove on high. I let it boil as I took a quick shower. The last time I shaved was Thursday, last week. (yes, i realize i can't grow facial hair. Im sure my Indian and Greek brothers can grow what I had in two hours!)

I lather up with some shaving gel and decide to go with the white handle first since the other blade is still hot. I really took my time (hey, i don't want a bloody face do i? I mean, i people use these to slit throats!) and it wasn't easy! Frig, i nicked myself A LOT! I think I even have a long scratch under my jawline. Once I kinda finished my left side, i switch razors so i can start on the right... the only problem is that the black handled straight razor wasn't sharp enough. D'oh! Back to the white handle! After about 15 minutes or so, i'm pretty much done...

My biggest nick would be right where my mole is (you can see a little blood). Overall, the shave was pretty crappy. It was REALLY hard to figure out how to shave my chin area. Also, its not as close as with the regular disposable razors. I guess I just need practice and tips from the good ol' Interweb. I'll give it a few more goes at it to see what happens. Hopefully I won't need any toilet paper to sop up any blood!

Morning Edition

My job in TeamID is to 1) move and 2) drive folks to the airport. Is that why I feel cheated for not driving Dr.T to the airport at 5:30 this morning? Fuck, whatever. I already had an early morning airport run on Saturday when i had to bring ai and NicoleMiller at 5 on Sat when they went to ChiTown... btw, have we ever had this many TeamID members not together? George has defected to BC, Chris is there right now for his wedding. Dr.T just left for there as well by coincidence. ai is StatesSide, Alison is-who-the-fuck-knows...

Since i woke up early this morning, 7amish. - why the fuck can't i sleep in? - I decide to hit up my friendly neighbourhood Honda dealership to take care of some car shit. They treat you real good there. A copy of RollingStone w/GnR on the cover, free coffee and a Lindtt chocolate personally delivered by the oldest gay guy ever. He was so flaming! Very nice and courteous, but flaming!

The service was pretty fast, so fast in fact, i didn't even get my DS on. Speaking of DS, who has my Tetris!?!?? I need to practice! Getting beat by 23 year old girl coworker 6-0 is not a good look. And it wasn't even a close 6-0. She just flat out DE-STROYED me! Where's my Tetris!? Revenge is a dish best served cold... four lines at a time!

Vacation Day 1 (of 4) Part 3

by chinwhat at 11:41 p.m.
I don't know when the last time anyone in TeamID did something really "spontaneous," but today would have to count as being spontaneous-esque. Today, Cathy messaged me and suggested lunch. "Sure!" i says. Somehow, I get Dr.T to come out with us too. Cathy wanted to go to the Buddhist Temple, but the Good Doctor quickly flashed his veto card and opted to go to CasinoNiagara. Funny thing is that we ended up with the on-again off-again on-again trip to B-Lo for some random shopping. Things to note:

- Cathy is a snob. She is also "ma arte"

- Cathy hates me.

- I found a new challenge for Jon & Al. Johnny Rockets' Rocket Triple

- I met my future (ex)wife. Her name is Tara. How do I know that her name's Tara and she'll be my future (ex) wife? Her vanity license plate is "Tara M" with the 'M' standing for "Maningas" (duh!) and she loves shopping. Just like me!

- She was even nice enough to take a picture of herself on the iPhone for me at the Apple store

- But why will she be my "ex" wife? Well, I'm supposed to marry TitaTess' daughter Keisha when she turns 18. Don't worry TitaTess, once Keisha's legal, i'll divorce Tara. Count down to conscent: less than one year!

EDIT: just to clarify, I'm not related in any way (yet) to TitaTess. TitaTess is my friends aunt. Okay Cindy? Geez!

Nothing beats that clean feeling of taking a shower...
Nothing beats that dirty feeling of REALLY rocking out in Guitar Hero right after...

Lynard Skynyrd's got nothing on THIS Free Bird!

(good thing I'm home alone!)
EDIT: damn, my thighs are so pasty! Hahahaha

Vacation Day 1 (of 4) Part 1

by chinwhat at 9:54 a.m.
It's Tuesday morning and i've been kinda bothered by one thing: over the last couple of weeks, I've been having trouble creating a Simpsons avatar. This morning, I spent over an hour on the Simpsons movie site creating these two. I used the "Simpsonize yourself" option on the BurgerKing link (top picture) which is alright cuz i get to actually have a mole. But i like the glasses of the bottom avatar - which i made from the main Simpsons page. What do you think? >sigh< Maybe I'll give it another go.

Only if they had more options like the Wii. (the version on Al's Wii is way better)
