Wow, so early in the week and already a winner for the "You SUCK!" award.

I went to goodwill to donate some items when this relatively young looking forty year old lady pulled into the lot, nearly running me over. Then she got out of her ride and dragged someone else's endtables across the jaggy concrete to make room for her car. Way to depreciate! Then, in a huff, she used the Lex to noisly push the tables out of the way so she could park. Geebs! Then she had the nerve to get out and put two small boxes (5" cubed) on top of the tables. That's it. Shoot, I woulda helped move those tables for you. All that drama, wrecking perfectly good furniture for some family in need.

Lady, you suck.

Siggraph Snapshot: Bizcard ninja.


Storytime @ Lackluster Video

It's Sat. night at the video store, and some couple was next to us the entire time, with the woman reading the whole damn innane dvd box copy to her dullard boyfriend. Several times. Several dvd's. Annoying! I am not a fan of people doing this over the cellphone to friends waiting at home, but at least there's good a reason: they aren't there to read it. Grrrrr. Chrissake, make the lazy-ass read it himself.

(Course I they already lost points w/ me when he grunted "Butterfly Effect. Great movie".)

Gave myself a haircut last night.

Self-haircuts are a very zen experience for me. It starts with frustration, then the release of taking the scissors in hand and letting it rip, then the inevitable "holy heck I've got five hairstyles going on at once" look, little snips to try and balance everything else out, then the final edward scissorhands, "this is how you accidentally commit suicide by cutting yer jugluar" flurry, THEN peace. Your right arm feels like stone, your head feels like clouds. "It's just hair, it doesn't matter, it'll grow back." Ahhhhhoooohhhmm.

On a side note, have you seen Japanese hairstyle magazines? Nearly identical snow white skin, tea colored hair. 18 year olds trying to look 12, all with this shocked expression as if they are in mortal terror that their stylish brown hair is not The Right Brown Hair. It's very pod-people frightening. Page after page of pixies.

I'm driving along-- again-- and spy this pimped out crossover vehicle. You know, like the matrix; the vibe; my next car, the mazda3 (cuz I'm too cheap to pimp); not-your-mama's-station-wagon. Then I pull up on the car and HOLY CRAP it's a herse! A 2004 cadillac hearse rolling on chrome. Yes, it's come to that. Car trends = jellybean --> toasters (scion) --> station wagons --> herses. Talk about going out in style, playa.

On another note, check the sidebar for other choice bloggage. Especially peep skullwell, cuz stop motion LIVES, and not just at Aardman.

I'm driving along and I see this tall guy in a trucker hat and a hawaiian shirt. Interesting fashion choice, hipster circa 2003, I check him out anyway...and he's an old dude. "Old" like "skinny Santa in the summer months" old. Not being ageist. I'm more criting we youngins-- when did dressing like a retired Grandpa in Boca become "trendy"?
