Oh God my ankle itches SO. BAD.

Man, I guess a mosque-queet-toe got into my bedroom last night, because I got a bunch of itchy red bumps this morning. My ankles, my elbows, my shoulders, oh my. I can't complain, though, I've only had two (2) or so bites so far this summer. This is mostly because I haven't been doing summer things. This is partly due to the weather. One day this weekend I heard on the radio that the Delaware valley was on its fifteenth day of rainfall in a row. The record is sixteen.

I actually don't mind too much, though. I'm inside almost all the time anyway. Putting in good hours! Piling up good income! Back for the first time on that old "time is money" kick!

Yesterday I really wanted some sushi so I called Mitch up because I knew he would tell me to order some because I was going to anyway and he did and so I did. I only ate half of it. Is it okay to eat the other half tonight? Yes, right?

I can't get over how much I like sushi. I'll admit it, I began to eat it at first to be hip. All the cool kids liked sushi, and it seemed like fun. But MAN is it good. I mean, it's raw meat! You're allowed to eat raw meat! And this is considered acceptable! This is heaven, people, heaven! Cows come next, yes, yes?

I haven't tried unagi yet, though. I tried it once, before I liked sushi, and I really really really didn't like it and I keep saying I should give it another shot now that I like sushi, but man, unagi. UUUUUU. Nagi. Ewnagi.

I can't open my balcony door! Isn't that exciting? I'm so excited about this, it's like a concrete, you-can-touch-it example of how ridiculously humid and ridiculous this weather is. I can't even budge it. Mitch was over the other day and so I had him try and he couldn't budge it either. I let the cat out via a window yesterday. I guess I won't be doing any grilling for a while. I keep thinking that it's a fire hazard, but I guess it isn't. (The balcony door being unopenable, I mean. I'm fully aware that using a charcoal grill on my balcony is a fire hazard.) I do like to be able to sit out on my balcony, though. Oh well, it's boviously too humid out there to be any fun.

I watch Adult Swim all the damn time these days. Did you see that promo last night? That Brak did? That totally bashed Home Movies? What was up with that? He said something about how the ratings have sucked for the past two weeks at 11pm because people don't like Home Movies, they like Futurama. I mean sure, then he said that Home Movies was a good show and people should watch it and everything, which I totally agree with, and yes, I like Futurama too and I missed it and am glad that it will be back (I've seen pretty much every Home Movies, but I think there are a bunch of Futuramas I haven't seen), but man, he used that evil word "sucked"! And then said something like "don't worry, the sucky two weeks are over and Futurama will be back starting Monday" and man, that's just disrespectful.

I'm also excited for FLCL tonight. I like how -- and I know very little about anime, so this could be wrong, but it's the impression that I'm getting -- "FLCL" seems to be like "YHWH" in that you can t'row whichever vowels you like in there. Like I say, that might be wrong, but it seems that way, and I like saying "foolee coolee" and "fie lee cai lee" and stuff, so I'm going to pretend that's definitely how it is. I really like that show, it's weird and it's weird and it's VERY adult-oriented, which is cool, because I get pretty much all of my anime from Cartoon Network, so even though I'm aware that adult themes are not unusual in anime, they are to me, I'm just a humble Tenchi girl. So this is neat. Also the music is great, I think they said the group was called the Pillows? It's a shame there are only six (6) episodes. They're showing the series twice in a row. I wish -- and I understand why they don't do this, I'm probably the only person who'd want it that way -- I actually wish they'd show each episode twice in a row. That way, if you miss one you can just catch it the next night, OR if you were really confused, you get to watch it over again and pay more attention, before you see the next episode. That would be great. But what do I know.

One more word about stupid Adult Swim before I go home: I really like the promos. The cards, whatever. At first they were great. Then it looked like they were going to repeat them every week, and that was lame. Now, they seem to be making new ones every day (I could be wrong, but I think so). I really like them, and I totally get the feeling like I'm just hanging out with the guys who write them, and that's always the best result you can hope for, I think.

Okay, that's it. Now home for Extreme Laundry Day and then sushi and then Adult Swim. GOOD NIGHT EVERYBODY!

In the beginning, they were quoting Elvis Costello every Monday. That endeared them to me immediately.

Quoting Elvis Costello...? Geeze, I think they've got our houses bugged. It's the only way they can be so cool.

Awww, I'm sorry insect-looking dog! I didn't mean it! You're not stupid, everybody must like ewnagi, it's in like half the freaking maki on the menu (which is frustrating). But man, it even LOOKS gross and ew nasty ewnagi! More like uNASTY!!

So what's the verdict on day-old sushi? Will I die?

Your nonplussed-ness is certainly justifiable, of course, but I will venture that nobody should really take anything Brak says too seriously.

1) nice TMBG reference. "Not back on it, still on it."

2) ME TOO SUSHI. hel-lo, fatty tuna! I'm going to be a fatty Meister by the time it's done.

3) I still have no address at which to send you thank-you for your A.MAZING package. this saddens me.

dear cool & slutty.
man, unagi is 100% my favorite piece of sushi.

the ones i won't give a second chance to? uni, mostly. a little bit i avoid the roe, but i think thats pretty much because i have decided i don't like it. i don't think i've ever had tobiko though! i like flying fish eggs.

Unagi?
Doesn't that have something to do with kung fu?

Oh man! Major faux pas! BOYS ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO ADMIT TO WATCHING 'FRIENDS'. Hell, even *I* didn't!

FLCL is apparently something the folks form Gainax Studios do to relax. I've only seen like 10 minutes of one episode but I dug it a lot.

i hope you have time on your hands
this link right here will take you to a pretty long interview with Mike Lazzo, one of the people responsible for Adult Swim and pretty much everything on Cartoon Network. i think the guy who did the interview comes off like a complete tool, but the info from Lazzo is really neat. he talks about those title cards, Home Movies, and your favorite Adult Swim shows on DVD.

enjoy.

ps- i didn't mean to use the word "pretty" twice in one sentance. my bad.
