I dog-sat this weekend! Dave went away and I got to take care of his dog Caine. Caine is little and red and the best of all possible dogs in this the best of all possible worlds. He's a miniature pinscher and he's almost completely quiet, unless you're Nick Brown or Neil or Mitch, and start punching me, in which case he jumps up and yells a lot, because Caine is a gentleman and he is PROTECTING me. He's very sweet. I love him. He's only a little bigger than my cat. They didn't like each other. They followed each other around the apartment suspiciously. They would stare at each other for a long time, not moving, until I had to travel between them for some reason, like to go get my hairbrush, in which case Caine would use me as a screen, and run up to Henry behind my legs and then jump out at the end, and chase him under the bed.

The first night, I was going to sleep with Caine out in the apartment, and Henry locked in my room with me; but Caine scratched and whined at the door and Henry sat up straight on the end of the bed staring at the door. "This will not do," I thought, so I switched them. Caine went to sleep at my feet and Henry may have been staring from the living room, but I'll bet he got bored and went to sleep, eventually. The second night, I left the dog with Jeff, who is friendlier than a cat.

On Friday night I went to Jeff's house to hang out and watch basketball and play games. I fell asleep on the couch. On Saturday night I went to Mitch's house to hang out and play video games. I fell asleep on the couch.

Saturday morning I woke up to walk the dog, and peeked in the laundry center -- it was empty! I never even ATTEMPT to do laundry on the weekends, because I assume that it's all busy and crowded, but this weekend it wasn't! Perhaps because of the drizzle! I got three loads done, hooray me. Three or four left to go.

Man, this rain, though. Ugh, so cold and wet. Go away.

On Saturday me and Jeff saw Bowling for Columbine, which was a very scary movie. Good, too. I ate a lot of popcorn. And Jeff got some Jujyfruits, and the kid at the snack counter thanked him for calling them Jujyfruit and not Juicy Fruit, which, as we all know, is gum. At the time I assumed that Jeff got them because the Jujyfruit episode of Seinfeld was on the other day, but I just now realized that I watched that at home by myself, possibly even on TBS (man, there are like eight thousand different channels that play syndicated Friends and Seinfeld, I'll tell you what), so he probaby didn't see it recently. So that makes it a coincidence, only there is no such thing as a coincidence.

My mouth hurts, because I ate too many Shock-Tarts this weekend. And then I brushed my teeth, like I do, and it involves brushing my tongue briefly, and my tongue started bleeding! I'm not sure that there's much I can do to help the healing process, besides eating a lot of ice cream.

And so the new drafter is 19 and gorgeous. She's thin and cute and thin and her hair is this gorgeous purpley red, but not in a gross way. And I look like crap again, like I do every day. I may start making an attempt to look good at work again, I think I actually feel a little better about my job when I look better at it, as silly as that is. And on December 21st I have a hair appointment and I'm going to use this new-fangled hair dye, this new technology, it has negative ions in it which bond to the positive ions in your hair, or the other way around, and you can't get it out, not even if you want to, except in the first two weeks, but after that, it's in, baby. Modern technology! Also I'm trying to grow it sort of long again, just so that I can chop it off and have it be a drastic change. I love change.

Wow. let me know how the hair dye turns out - the gothmakeuptips kids would go nuts for it!

Hm, this new girl at your office sounds very interesting. Does she have a Livejournal? I'd like to replace you with her on my Friends list, if at all possible.
Nov. 18th, 2002 08:06 am (UTC)
Sigh. I'll find out for you, I guess.
Nov. 18th, 2002 08:10 am (UTC)
Thanks. Also, could you please give her all the presents I've ever sent you? I'd appreciate it.

Aw, c'mon, Jon, now you're just being mean.

Pssh, I bet the new Washu won't be riding my ass like this.

Remember how I said I was gonna cut my hair? I was totally gonna do it, I was so sick of it, because I've been working out six days a week which means I have to wash it six days a week and I was tried of it being wet and nappy all the time, but then we went out to eat with Hayley and her mom and her TOTALLY HOTT STEP DAD, and he said that I shouldn't cut it because it was very pretty, and I went SWOON, so now I can't cut it, because I want the TOTALLY HOT STEP DAD to think I'm pretty.

i was just thinking about your crazy ion hair dye yesterday. what would happen if, within the first two weeks, you went into a room with one of those ionizing air purifiers? those babies spew out massive amounts of negative ions all day long. would all the dirt & dander & pollutants from the room be attracted to your hair or repelled by it? would the dye fly out of your hair & into the ionizer's filter? whenever you deal with new technology you have to think about compatibility issues like this.

So it has come to this.

Ions in our hair. May the gods forgive us.

Dude, did you see Roger and Me? Because I liked it better, even though I liked Bowling for Columbine.

Also, I met Mr. Moore twice. He's awesome. I told him he was "the cat's meyow", for real, and it was so embaressing. I don't know why I did it, it just popped out.

No, I haven't! This was my first Michael Moore movie, though of course I'm familiar with who he is and what he does. I like his style, a lot. He manages to avoid coming off as obnoxious, which I think is hard to do, considering all the people he pisses off and all the questions he asks that people don't want him to ask.

Oh man, rent Roger and Me TODAY. You'll love it.

Isn't that the movie that Manning and Tami scoured South Jersey in search of? I'll try to get someone to order it from Netflix . . .

I'm not exactly sure how you managed to make your tongue bleed, but I can't imagine that was a very comfortable healing process.

Meant to tell you a lot of times that I liked your new hair cut. That was back when it was new of course (caught a peak via your webcam).

I would like to see you after this new fangled hair experiment, so post pix plz.

Don't be like that, love. As far as young birds go, you're dead sexy.

Awww, thanks, sweetie.

Coincidentally enough, I spent some part of last night trying to make this icon wink, but Fireworks is . . . different, from what I'm used to. It kept wanting to draw vectors for me when vectors were certainly not necessary. But I will conquer it tonight, this I promise.

Also, thanks, buddy. And you don't have to feel bad for bustin' my stones, I can take it. ;)
