*yawn*

man, i'm so tired. i don't know why... i had a killer headache last night. i've never had a headache that bad... it was so bad, i got nauseated. that has NEVER happened before. i thought i was going to ralph. gross.... i guess i played video games too long... well, it wasn't THAT long. maybe 6.5 hours, but i guess it was too long for me...

but, paper mario is fun! if you have gamecube, you have to get it, if you don't have it yet. i'm stuck now, though. damn it. it's cool, you can turn into a paper airplane and glide places from certain platforms, you can slip through cracks and such and i don't have these two abilities yet, but you can roll up into a tube and you can turn into a paper boat from special docks. it's kinda cool... :) anyway, yeah. it's fun.

i did my duty and sent in my absentee ballot on saturday. kerry/edwards in '04! check out this article by hunter s. thompson. good read.. if you like thompson.

watched the day after tomorrow last night. holy god. that movie was SOOOO bad, it was comical. i think i burst out laughing no less than 7 times during the course of the movie... of course, i watched the whole thing. i couldn't help it! it was just so goddamned funny... bad dialogue, holey plot... the special effects were okay... but, i was pretty unimpressed.

i think the actors did the best they could with the cheesey lines they were given... i like jake gyllenhaal, but mostly because i liked donnie darko. yeah, all in all, the movie pretty much just sucked ass... if you're in the mood to watch a crappy ass movie, then by all means, go for it. i would suggest against it, though. i mean, it's bad.

i did way more this weekend then i planned to. i was going to do nothing, but i ended up cooking a lot... it was fun, though. i like to cook. it's fun and all... i'm just not exactly a gourmet chef or anything... poor steve, always my guinea pig. went to this grocery store called wholesome choice. it was kinda cool. lots of fresh ingredients and ethnic foods. they've got this deli in there that smells fabulous. i have to go there sometime and try it out. it was a tad too crowded for my taste, but at least i know where to go for those hard to find ingredients...

OH! at the store, when i was in the checkout line, this little asian boy was sitting in the cart. he was probably 2ish/3ish. well, old enough to talk. and he kept on pointing at me. i couldn't figure out why, but i just smiled at him and kinda ignored him as best as i could.

his mom: what, honey?
boy: *pointing at me* she looks like mommy...
mom: she does? *and the woman looks at me*
*the woman is UGLY, i'm trying not to be offended*
boy: *acting all shy like little boys do* prettier
mom: mommy's prettier?
boy: NO. *points at me* prettier.

i just looked away. i was mortified. i was embarrassed for the mom... god! kids are such brats! i didn't know what to do. i pretended like i heard nothing and got really interested in the stuff in my cart. people always get so happy about how kids are so honest and upfront. who the fuck cares? i just think they're just fucking embarrassing. but that's just me.

blah, blah, blah. i'm babbling because i don't want to work. but i have to because the boss is in. and it's the last week of the month... blah. i don't want to work :( my right wrist and right hand are worse today than ever. i seriously think i may have a problem. stupid ergonomics bastard people! i can't really use my thumb to pick things up... well, i can use it, but i can't use any pressure, so that makes it hard to actually pick things up or lift anything. typing's still okay... i guess that's all that matters. *sigh* i can't really write with a pen or a pencil, but who uses those anymore, anyway, right?

When my mom came to visit me from Korea (she's not Korean, but she's lived over there for 10 years), she couldn't find any of her favorite foods ... like fresh anchovies over here. Does the store you went to have them? We went to some store off the 55, Matsumoto's?? And they didn't have them, so she ended up getting dried sardines. Gross. When she comes back to visit again I want to know where to go. Any suggestions?

good god. fresh anchovies? that's just nasty. heh.

i really don't know. i haven't looked for them... maybe you could try the korean market over on red hill and walnut.

if not, there are bigger korean markets in garden grove. if all else fails, there's always koreatown in LA, if you really want to make that trek.

and why does she live in korea, anyway???

LOL. I know. I concur on the ick factor of anchovies. When she told me that she wanted them I was like, "Are you serious??" This was back in February ... which means she'll likely come to visit in a few months. When she comes back I'll have to go over to that market on Red Hill. Good idea.

She moved over there 10 years ago to teach English to college age students. And, she's never learned Korean and is very sensitive about that question. LOL.

P.S. You should visit my blog ... something exciting/scary happened over the weekend. (Yes, I'm comment whoring.)

Girl, you are hilarious. Umm, thank you for your discretion. But it would have been funny if you had put that on there, in a shocking sort of way.

Thanks for the congrats. :)

I used to have a gamecube but i found that Nintendo, which is the best producer of games for the GC, only makes kid stuff. Sometimes i want more than simple games :)

Good lord, my friends and I were so obnoxious when we went to see The Day After Tomorrow (yes, I actually saw it in the theater *bowing head in embarrassment*). We were laughing out loud at all the cheesy lines and plot twists (wolves? on a russian sea vessel? in ten feet of water?). Last weekend I actually talked a woman out of renting that movie and convinced her to rent Wonderland instead. Just doing my civil duty. No need for thanks.
