Farah, Oh Farah

Farah, oh Farah, how you are loved.
Everyday they come in large numbers,
From the far off unknown lands of Yahoo, Google and MSNsearch.
They yearn for a glimpse of you Farah.

Farah, oh Farah, how lovely you are.
Your layered, sometimes multicolored hair is envied.
They long for a wiff of its Panteen Pro-V scent.
“Mimi” is the new “Rachel.”

Farah, oh Farah, Je t’adore!
Alas, you elusive like a leaf in the wind.
You linger above me, but always out of reach.
You must remain but a picture on the television.

What More Can I Do To Myself?

At some point this week/weekend I stubbed my big toe on my left foot. I don’t recall what I did this on though, but it’s sore. I restubbed it this weekend.

I sliced my finger open on a heavy duty packaging staple opening a box.

I stepped on a ball of twine as I was taking stuff to the basement, twisting my right ankle. For a moment I was afraid I broke it as it went sideways. It’s sore now too.


I Need Ohh La La La La

Heads up! If you have an iPod or iTunes, the free download of the week is Goldfraps “Ohh La La.” I took a chance on it and love it! It has an 80s electro-pop feel to it.


Dog Pens

Does anyone have any experience with these type of dog pens? They can be used indoor and outdoor, I would be purchasing it for outside. I do not have a fenced in yard, so I have to walk my little monsters. They love being outside, but I can’t leave them out on their own. I was considering getting one of these and either some pannel extensions, or just buying two of them and joining them. Thought I’d ask if anyone had experiences with them. First I’m going to just try ground stakes and heavy duty leashes to see if they will put up with being outside without me. At my mom’s house the yard is so big and fenced in that they are fine, here and leashed up or penned in they might not like it as much.


Do I Need To Get A Life?

I saw this on some other blogs and decided to participate. If you’ve seen over 70 of these movies then apparently you need to get a life. This one is going to be hard, because I can say some of these movies were on the TV at the time but I actually wasn’t paying attention (either someone else was watching and I was doing something or it was background noise). I guess if I honestly can’t describe the plot and characters enough I’ll not count it. I’m sure I have seen way more than 70 in the end anyways.

And here we go . . .

Xbox Live

I don’t have much to talk about today, sorry. I’ve been really busy with work and it looks like I’ll be spending a weekend in working. Anyways, if anyone out there is on Xbox Live here is my gamer card.

Also, don’t forget to mail me or respond if you have Nintendo DS, we can trade friend codes on there too.


Silent Hill: The Movie

Head over to and check out the website for the movie Silent Hill, based on the popular video game series. While your there check out the trailer. CREEPY! The trailer follows the first game of the series. In fact half of the trailer is like the opening sequence of the first game with the main character being changed from a mother to a father.

This videogame series is one of the most disturbing games EVER. If they can do a good job with the movie then it should be one excellent horror film. Unfortunately translating video games to movies never seems to work all that well.


Real World: Key West

This is Svetlana from MTV’s upcoming “Real World: Key West.” She’s 19 years old, Russian, and a pre-med student at Temple University. Hey that’s my school! Since I haven’t been on campus much lately I can’t say I’ve seen her walking around. However I think that’s so cool that someome from my school is on Real World! I stopped watching it a looooong time ago, only tuning in a bit for the Philly season. I may have to tune in just to see this cast because of the connection to my school.


Two Mostly Uneventful Night

Last night was pretty uneventful. Went to dinner at a local Irish pub. The food was good, the pub was WAY too smoky. Left wreaking like an ashtray (I hate that!) Then we went back to “the swingers club.” Okay it isn’t a swingers club, but after our incident the weekend before it will be forever thought of as that.

The club was PACKED! I had never seen it so packed. Everyone and anyone was there. I even ran into a friend from school I hadn’t seen in over a year. I always end up running into her at obscure clubs. The crowd was also a much younger crowd than I had seen before, so the music was geared towards them at the beginning of the evening (dreaded hip hop stuff). Fortunately the music changed later on.

The swinging couple did come back, which made me giggle. The woman even remembered my name and waved! I was sober this night so looked at them a little better. The wife reminded me a whole lot of one of my cousins when she was younger. Freaky! The husband was a giant, I didn’t realize how he towered over everything the night before. Anyways it was so packed they didn’t come over and we just sorta waved. Maybe I’ll see them next Friday and it will be less crowded.

The only eventful part of the night was when J’s platonic friend decided he didn’t want to be just friends anymore. Oh dear!

Tonight I went out with Em, her friends and sister. It was fun, but I was pooped from the night before and seem to have a stomach bug. It wasn’t a late night. I’m about to go to bed and watch “Saw 2” (probably not the best thing to watch with an already upset stomach!)


A Swinging Good Time

So tomorrow night I’m going out to celebrate my friend J’s birthday. I’m meeting her and her friends at an Irish Pub in Philly for dinner and drinks, but from there it’s open. She’s told me her goal is to go dancing. I said I’m there, which she already knew. Even though I told her about the Sadam and Gamorah club, she thought it was hysterical and we do like the music there. I have a feeling I’m going to be back amongst the swingers, and J can be a bad influence on me if we get hit on! No I am obviously not going to go swinging, but there is a chance we will lead them on or grill them about exactly what it is they do (and want to do with us). Maybe this weekend I’ll have something funny to post. Then again it could turn out to be a harmless night.
