Bands that make me exceedingly angry on cranky Tuesday mornings.

1) Oasis
2) Nada Surf
3) Archers of Loaf

This list will no doubt only grow as I continue to do menial tasks while listening to what appears to be the worst of the 90s flashback hour on preferred radio station at work KEXP. Incidentally, my music collection has a strong bias towards the 90s, so I am not opposed to the decade by any means.

Uh oh, boyfriend, watch out.

I just learned that pre-teen crush Jose Canseco is now playing minor league baseball in Long Beach. I admit that I find the current version of Jose far less attractive, and steroids are probably the least sexy of all drugs. You are probably safe, boyfriend. But, I must say, I didn't even know you were alive in 1988, and I sure can't say the same for Mr. MVP.

2 weeks 2 days

Until Bill and I begin our great trek westward. Ahoy.

I purchased luggage online over the weekend. I thought it was lame when others received luggage for graduation, holidays, etc from aged relatives. Now I realize that it was not lame, only cheaper than buying it yourself.

Tell me, is there anything more gratifying than clicking "track shipment" a thousand times a day? My luggage has begun its journey in The City of Industry, CA, an (industrial) suburb of Los Angeles, which is, incidentally, where my credit card bills go. So, basically, it was like shopping at a neighborhood store.

The Roommate Tells All: Part 1--Breakfast

I read a magazine article that had advice on what to do if your roommate blogs about what you eat for breakfast. I will now blog about what my roommates eat for breakfast, and see if my roommates know what to do.

Bill: Bill seems only willing to eat bananas, bagels, green apples, and left-over pizza. This means that sometimes he eats no breakfast. I don't understand it.
Julie: Julie primarily eats cereal and whatever fruit is in the bowl. Sometimes, however, I catch her putting a variety of random food items on bread, toasted or otherwise, but never in a sandwich-like assemblage. I have seen her put honey, bananas, peanut butter, aldi- brand nutella, eggs, cheese, lunch meat, and imitation butter products in all sorts of incredibly odd combinations.

Phrase that makes my nose wrinkle: fruit cup.
