I had a job interview today with The Network and, while I was rather nervous during the first part with the HR manager, the second part with Mimi (I can't remember her exact title) went great. According to my friend who works there, she loved me. Here's hoping I get a callback.



We lost. Bad.

I played like ass.



Best Imitation of Myself

I feel like a quote out of context, withholding the rest, so I can be for you what you want to see. I've got the gestures and sounds, got the timing down. It's uncanny. Yeah, you'd think it was me. Do you think I should take a class to lose my southern accent? Did I make me up? Or make a face til it stuck? I do the best imitation of myself.

The "Problem With You" speech you gave me was fine. I liked the theories about my little stage. And I swore I was listening, but I started drifting around the part about me acting my age. And now if it's all the same, I've people to entertain. I can juggle one-handed, do some magic tricks, and the best imitation of myself.

Maybe I'm thinking myself in a hole, wondering who I am when I ought to know. Straighten up now, time to go fool somebody else. Fool somebody else.

Last night I was east with them and west within, trying to be for you what you want to see. But I can't help it. With you the good and bad comes through. Don't want you hanging out with no one but me. Now, if it's all the same, it comes from the same place. And if my mind's somewhere else, you won't be able to tell. I do the best imitation of myself. Yes, it's uncanny to see. You'd really think it was me. I do the best imitation of myself. The best imitation of myself.

You've Got Me Weak In The Knees

It's been a while since I've seen Jessica around here. At least a month, I think. I honestly don't remember the last time I hung out with her. But lately I feel like I've been seeing her face. A quick glance in this direction or that and I'd swear I see her face. She's not really there. She hasn't been around, but if I believe it hard enough, maybe she'll come around again.


The Stuff Movies Are Made Of

Allow me to set the scene for you. The 4th place team (us) is playing against the 2nd place team. The good guys have three less players on their bench. They're down 2-0 with only 4 minutes left in the third period. Then, their number one center (me) gets a pass from their number one scorer, and puts the puck in the net! 2-1, three minutes left. At two minutes left, the number one scorer manages to score a goal. 2-2! We finally manage to break our losing streak by tying the second place team. And I'm freaking exhausted.

Your Horoscope

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
The jury won't buy your story of demonic possession. Which is no big deal, because the demon just wanted your Milk Duds.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You do not subscribe to the sinful, heretical theory of evolution. You do, however, subscribe to Young & Chubby Bubble Bottom.

Gemini (May 21 - June 21)
Though it's been years, you haven't given up hope that the government will issue a formal apology for calling you a spoiled, self-centered brat.

Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
You won't accept the "Gaia" theory--the notion that the entire Earth is one huge organism--so long as the cacti are your friends and the ferns want you dead.

Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)
It's okay to tell a girl you like the way she walks, as long as you do it politely and she's not an amputee who uses those clip-on arm canes.

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)
Actually, your form of love is a crime, but, due to a loophole, you're not guilty.

Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 23)
It might be the absolute last straw, but at least it's on of those fun and colorful bendy-straws.

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 21)
You will soon experience a mystical transformation into a higher form of pure, ultimate consciousness, but you still won't be a "math person."

War will ravage the land, leaving cities in ashes and causing no stone to lay atop another, when you try to enforce your definition of classic rock.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Though you and the dedicated cop will have many things in common, such as a love of the hunt and a taste for danger, it can only end one way.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
You have the freedom to choose, and therefore have the potential to transcend your very nature through an act of will, but you will only choose extra cheese.

Pisces (Feb 19 - March 20)
By the time you finally learn to relax and/or live with yourself, your vacation and/or life will be almost over.


Big Ol' Update

This is going to take a while, so I'd suggest you go get a snack first.

A cut to save Friends Pages and the uninterestedCollapse )
By now, anyone reading this should already know that the first Atlanta Loliday was sort of a disaster, though I did get to meet a really cool chick (shout out to junklandbabette). As such, the Powers That Be felt it was necessary to hold another get together to make up for the first one sucking so bad (a most excellent decision, indeed). There was tea and scones and heart-shaped sandwiches and fun times had by all. If I owned a camera, I would have taken pictures, however, that was sadly not the case. I shall instead post one picture of myself here, and links to the posts of superhero miscy, the fantastic bunnyko, and the always wonderful missmeganmaude.

Making Bread

I used to be pretty unconcerned and laissez-faire about how people make bread. But then I saw a video that changed my outlook forever. I present to you the only acceptable way to make bread.


Upcoming Movies

Robin Williams is doing a movie with John Travolta about two old men suddenly getting custody of a pair of 7-year-old twins. Hillarity ensues.

Keanu Reeves is doing a remake of the 1951 sci-fi flick "The Day The Earth Stood Still."

Kate Winslet is doing a compute ranimated version of Shakespeare's most famous romance, but this time it's between warring factions of indoor and outdoor gnomes. It's going to be called "Gnomeo and Juliet."

Jim Carrey is working on "A Christmas Carol." He'll be playing the part of Ebenezer Scrooge, as well as all three ghosts of Christmas Past/Present/Future.

Carrey is also doing a movie based on Robert Ripley's "Believe It Or Not."

As for action movies, Matt Damon is slated to do another Jason Bourne movie coming out in 2010. No title for it just yet, though.

In the Why The Heck Are They Making A Sequel category, Owen Wilson is filming "A Night At The Museum 2" with Ben Stiller.

Jack Black's got a movie coming out next year entitled "Year One." He and Michael Cera play two hunter-gatherers that have been kicked out of their village, so they wander around prehistoric earth. Hank Azaria, of The Simpsons fame, plays Abraham.

Will Ferrell seems to finally be done with stupid sports movies and John C. Reilly comedies. He's working on "Land Of The Lost."

Some things just make a weird sort of sense. Like Christopher Walken playing Ozzy Osbourne in a movie about Motley Crue. Val Kilmer is likely to play David Lee Roth, as well. Look for "The Dirt" in 2009.

Kevin Smith is doing what he does best. He's writing, directing, and acting in "Red State," a horror movie about a group of misfits who encounter extreme fundamentalism in middle America.

George Clooney is doing an animated childrens movie based on author Roald Dahl's "Fantastic Mr. Fox." Clooney plays the titular Mr. Fox, and Cate Blanchett plays his wife.

Proving the old addage that the last movie in a series is the one that doesn't make any money, Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, and the rest of the Toy Story gang are making a third movie. The kid they belonged to in the first movie is now college age, and Woody and Buzz are dropped off in a day-care center. Look for John Ratzenberger to reprise his roll as a piggy bank and Joan Cusack to play a yodelling cowgirl.

Willem Dafoe is set to be in a vampire movie with Salma Hayek. John C. Reilly will also be in the flick. Look for "Cirque Du Freak" later this year.

Because large men wearing frilly outfits is always funny, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is staring in a movie called "Tooth Fairy."

Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, and Laurence Fishburne are starring in a war drama movie coming out in 2009 called "The Last Full Measure."

Besides working on "Sin City 2," Devon Aoki is working on a comedy called "Rozencrantz and Guildenstern Are Undead." Look for this movie based off staging a weird version of "Hamlet" later this year.

As if he hadn't beaten himself up enough, Jackie Chan has a new movie coming out called "Xin Su shi jian" (that's "The Shinjuku Incident" for those of us that don't speak Chinese). I don't know much about this one, but it's got Jackie Chan in it, so it's going to be good.

Taking some time off from being a badass in real life, Samuel L. Jackson is spending a little time being a badass in front of the camera in "The Spirit" as the villian the Octopus. Can't wait.

Angelina Jolie (*squee*) is going to be in a film adaptation of "Atlas Shrugged" next year, and an unnamed Muppets movie after that.

Brad Pitt somehow got convinced that filming an autoerotic masturbatory piece was a good idea, so look for him to play not only himself, but the titular character in the film "Chad Schmitt" sometime in 2010.

Johnny Depp (*squee again*) is doing what he does best. "Dark Shadows," set for 2010 is a gothic-horror tale centering on the life of vampire Barnabas Collins (Depp) and his run-ins with various monsters, witches, werewolves, and ghosts.
