handle with care
there are too many things to say right now. too many things, but not in that kooky julianne moore/roller girl, 'i never want to leave this room,' type of way. more like, 'i woke up this early to do this one bullshit thing and i still have like eight million other things left to do and i'm being taken out of my comfortable zone.' type of too many things. well, lets be honest, anytime, i'm taken out of my comfortable zone, even if its for something i want to do, i'm going to hate whatever it is, i'm doing. if i could, i'd just live in a bubble where i'd be able to do absolutely nothing except for watching "tyra"(she's this generation's oprah) and maybe getting a burritto, but, even then, thats pushing it a little too much. not to mention, the holiday stress level is at an all time high; the phantom eye twitch is creeping back up again.
yet, thats not even where i want to begin, i saw this thing on the daily show about a congressional hearing on inicident material on cable television and basically, its a couple of house wives and some old dudes saying that cable tv is bad, but here's the thing, correct if i'm wrong, but isn't cable a pay service? its not required by law to have cable in your house, you know, you can hack it with rabbit ears and what not in order to watch your stories. so, why does congress assume that these loud mouths with nothing better to do with their time, represent the american public at large? just cause 20 people mail out a 100 letters apiece fo the fcc complaining about the content on an episode of mtv's "next," that means that we're all upset at the content of the show and believe there should be heavier restrictions on cables? bitch please. sure, i'll complain about the show, "next," but its only because there's rarely any hot chicks on it and it just makes me yarn for the salad days of mtv's dating shows, (does anyone remember "dismissed" as well as laugther?). thats the problem and you know, how lazy are these people? i know on my remote control that there are parental control functions, so if there's something objectionable on a channel, it can be blocked out. midwestern housewives should not have the power and ablitiy to fuck up my viewing habbits just cause they're offended by "nip/tuck." be offended that it seems like a show that'd be too hard for a new viewer to jump into it.
the thing about my legal experince, was that, it wasn't anything really to write home about. it was boring and tedious, but for what it was, it went by rather quickly, i was there at 9am and i was sent home by noon, which oddly was a bit disapointing. for as much as i didn't want to serve, i, at least, wanted to be questioned as a perspective juror, and i didn't even get that. i was warned about being careful with my words during that process, so i wouldn't be placed in contempt by the judge, but, i didn't even get to have that moment to flirt with danger and fear, then again, when and why would i ever flirt with danger? and i didn't even get to experince the hellacious nature of the juror room because they were throwing a christmast party inside it.
like the worst thing that happened during the whole day was that i sneezed and you know how sometimes when you sneeze, nothing comes out of your nose and then there are the other times, when you get snot out of your nose. okay, so i sneezed while waiting in a court room and it probably was the first time i sneezed in a few days, and of course, snot came out and all over my hands and of course, i had nothing to wipe them on, but my jeans. yes, people, i'm a dirtbag, a real dirt bag, none of the cisco alder bullshit. the situation didn't lend its self to me running out of the room, holding up a pair of dirty hands all the while climbing over a group of people who hate being there as much as you do.
there's the sorta jokey nature in which everybody carries themselves with in court. i thought this was a serious manner, but the judge and the jurors are dropping one liners like every five minutes. although, this one guy who had yet to recieve his letter of excuse for the court had the best joke. 'does this mean i have to go to work now?' for as much as a joke as it was, i think the guy was actually being honest about the whole thing. also, when the lawyers are making their speeches to the jury pool, i felt compelled to clap at the end of each statement; you know, i just finished like three weeks of power point presentations in class and it just had the vibe of a power point presentation.
the legal system works, if you're some goofy guy wearing a bloc party t-shirt to court, if you're dressed nicely, then you're shit out of luck.
the legal system experince sorta help me come to this one train out of thought, then i went to the bank, it only reenforced it. um, my new thing, is girls dressed in pants like from the limited or express or banana republic, but you know, the work trouser. maybe, i like them because thats the closet i actually want to get to real work, but quite frankly, there's just something about a girl in a nice sweater, some killer pants and nice heels. maybe its the reaction against the ripped jeans and flip flops look, but at the same time, you're sorta wonder what the girls in their work gear look like in jeans and flip flops, even a pop in on a causal day can't provide a clue as to how they'd look in regular clothes. so ladies, just go everywhere like you just came from work; it'll be killer.
seriously, one of these days, me and mark from hella awful are going to post on our collaborative year end list. we're actually going to do a meeting about it. well, not really, it'll be about other projects, but never the less, the subject will be adressed.
so, we've all heard the jenny lewis solo album by now, correct? or at least the song with ben gibbard and conor obsert on it, right? okay, after listening to that song, i finally realized and i feel like a complete and utter idoit for it, but conor obsert is a horrible singer. why have i been duped for all these years? the guy doesn't sing as much as he just talks the song; if anything, he's been ripping off that guy who did that 'jackie is a stupid drunk' song from the stern show. then again, i should've known when obsert sounds an awfull lot like durst. but seriously, lets boycott obsert in '06 cause the dude is hypocricket cause he talks songs about how you shouldn't wear designer jeans, but the dude rocks diseals.
