Barren Illusion
"If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal- that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself. The greatest gains and values are farthest from being appreciated. We easily come to doubt if they exist. We soon forget them. They are the highest reality. Perhaps the facts most astounding and most real are never communicated by man to man. The true harvest of my daily life is somewhat as intangible and indescribable as the tints of morning or evening. It is a little star-dust caught, a segment of the rainbow which I have clutched." - Henry David Thoreau

You are winna, ha-ha-ha

Dear Lily Lee:

Recently, you completed an online survey for Allure.

You may recall that we promised to award fifty respondents who completed the survey with a special prize.

We're pleased to let you know that you are the winner of a cosmetic bag valued at $15!

*Please allow up to 12 weeks for fulfillment from Allure.

Rick McIntosh
Mediamark Interactive
On behalf of Allure

I don't remember the last time I won anything. Oh wait, I remember: last year in MACY*S while I was on line to get the autographs of the Veronica Mars cast, they were giving away America's Next Top Model DVDs if you answered a Veronica Mars/pop culture question correctly, and I named all the members of the Backstreet Boys into a microphone and the whole floor heard me and I "won." TEAM CYCLE ONE, BITCHES!

Too bad I still have a giant stick of unsalted Danish butter and four sticks of King Kullen butter. (Why the hell do I have so much butter? It's not like I use it daily in my food or on my skin.) BUT I MADE MY OWN BUTTER!

(That's me!)

Is Jack Bauer the new Chuck Norris?
lunes, 16 de enero, 2006
I like 24. I haven't seen all the episodes, but it's pretty easy to get into it even if I start watching in the middle of an episode. I know the gist of what happened each season. Why am I so excited for this particular day, though?? Return of Elisha Cuthbert? Re-emergence of C. Thomas Howell??? Kiefer-love reaching uncharted territory????

As for the first half of the "premiere event":
Oh. No. They. Didn't.

Top Thirty Jack Bauer Facts

1. If you wake up in the morning, it's because Jack Bauer spared your life.
2. Jack Bauer killed 93 people in just 4 days time. Wait, that is a real fact.
3. Jack Bauer's favorite color is severe terror alert red. His second favorite color is violet, but just because it sounds like violent.
4. Upon hearing that he was played by Kiefer Sutherland, Jack Bauer killed Sutherland. Jack Bauer gets played by no man. *dies of laughter*
5. Children don't believe in Santa anymore because they know Jack Bauer killed him. The few people that believe in Santa know that Jack Bauer is torturing him.
6. If Jack Bauer was in a room with Hitler, Stalin, and Nina Meyers, and he had a gun with 2 bullets, he'd shoot Nina twice.
7. Jack Bauer was never addicted to heroin. Heroin was addicted to Jack Bauer.
8. Don't ask what Jack Bauer would do for a Klondike bar...you don't wanna know...
9. Jack Bauer's gun is actually a water pistol, but the water shoots out in the form of bullets. Why? Because the gun is being held by Jack fucking Bauer.
10. Jack Bauer doesn't miss. If he didn't hit you it's because he was shooting at another terrorist twelve miles away.
11. If Jack says "I just want to talk to him/her" and that him/her is you... well amigo, you're fucked.
12. If you get 7 stars on your wanted level on Grand Theft Auto, Jack Bauer comes after you. You don't want to get 7 stars.
13. Jack Bauer once forgot where he put his keys. He then spent the next half-hour torturing himself until he gave up the location of the keys.
14. 1.6 billion Chinese are angry with Jack Bauer. Sounds like a fair fight.
15. Jack Bauer does not sleep. The only rest he needs is what he gets when he's knocked out or temporarily killed.
16. When you open a can of whoop-ass, Jack Bauer jumps out.
17. Jack Bauer's family threw him a surprise birthday party when he was a child. Once.
18. While being ‘put under’ in the hospital, Jack Bauer can count backwards from 100 every time. This annoys the doctors.
19. David Spade always says 'yes' to Jack Bauer when he wants to redeem his credit card miles.
20. If Jack Bauer had been on Oceanic 815 there would no Lost.
21. Jack Bauer literally died for his country, and lived to tell about it.
22. Jack Bauer has no problem following orders, unless you tell him to do something he doesn't want to.
23. Everytime Jack Bauer yells "NOW!" at the end of a sentence, a terrorist dies.
24. As a child, Jack Bauer's first words were "There's no time!"
25. Jack Bauer can sneeze with his eyes open.
26. Guns dont kill people, Jack Bauer kills people.
27. Jack Bauer shouldn't be compared to Jesus. Jack rose from the dead not once, but twice.
28. When life gave Jack Bauer lemons, he used them to kill terrorists. Jack Bauer fucking hates lemonade.
29. Jack Bauer hates casual conversation. He prefers bullets.
30. Killing Jack Bauer doesn't make him dead. It just makes him angry.

Entertainment Weekly has repeatedly over the years sent me renewal notices to "lock in" my guaranteed low renewal rates, which comes out to seventy-nine cents an issue for fifty-six issues. However, I am currently under their "plan" for forty issues at a time for $20, which comes out to fifty cents each. Does EW take me for a fool? Do they think I can't solve math equations? Why save 77.42857143% when I am currently saving 85.71428571% ?? Does Bea Arthur have to choke a bitch?

Autumn in Central Park

As you can see in the photo, the cracked concrete symbolizes the fissures of my heart.

Also, who knew the top hits for the search word "fissures" all relate to the anus? (I had always thought, scientifically, it only dealt with geology. Silly me!)

Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him...

A super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

There is nothing on and I'm semi-watching One Tree Hill. I had vowed to myself I would never watch it, but maybe I was being unfair? After all I had only seen seconds of it here and there. I thought, it might not make me want to rip my eyeballs out. So, I'm gonna kill myself now.

I hate the new year, because it means spring is coming soon. EW, SPRING!!

OMG, three consecutive days blogging here! A record! Winter holiday spoils me.

Naw, yo, Les, mah feed wazn't always dere. I was planning to set it up back in the summer, but I decided to hold it off until I finished my main page, which I'm still doing now, actually, so I suck. Anyway, I thought, when I was still putting finishing touches before Christmas, "Whatever, RSS feeds are awesome," so I put it up. I know it's broken, but it's not really something I can hack into and fix. I use Bloglines and it works there, so... I thought it would be no problem.
