time and time again...

...the words are messy and hard to read.

still moving. i can't believe how much stuff i have. where did it all come from? am i that much of a consumer whore? that's it, no more shopping for me! in addition to realizing how much shit i had, i also recognize that i used to be so much more interesting than i am now. i have this really cute rainbow teddy bear bracelet that i remember wearing oh so many years ago, but i can't remember where i got it. if someone knos, please tell me. also, where did i get this little plastic giraffe?

nip/tuck is alternating between a horribly written episode and an utterly engrossing one all thruout this season. what the fuck? i don't think there's a more uneven show on tv. just when i think, "oh good, they're back in their groove," they throw stupid shit into the story. "oh adrian *sniffle sniffle* you're adopted, that's why we can have sex." BULLSHIT! what the fuck kind of solution is that? that solves nothing! a mother still had sex with her son! (which was a truly disgusting revelation... but it was part of an utterly engrossing episode, so i LOVED it) anyways, this week was a great one. i like when christian gets a smack in the face from the bitch called life, and i hate bisexual rapists with creepy "mardi gras" masks. i really liked the cliffhanger last season about matt's real father, and i hope next week's will leave us with the same kind of question. had bobbolit not chopped up that poor j. lo wannabe a few weeks back, i would think that he would turn out to be the carver, but with the way this show is, it'll probably turn out to be... liz! *gasp* (by the way, where the fuck did she go?)

lost. only two episodes and i'm already hooked. (okay, i was hooked after the first one. damn you abrams and your stopping in the middle of a climax!) i don't kno anything about any of these people, and they release information bit by bit. kate beckinsale's a criminal? the brit rocker's a heroin addict (yeah, i didn't see that one coming *eyeroll*)? the koreans can't speak english AT ALL? okay, they were on a plane either from australia to the us or vice-versa (they crashed in the south pacific somewhere it looks like. ain't no islands like that in the atlantic), yet, for some reason, the koreans kno absolutely no english whatsoever (even tho daniel dae kim's korean is accented). i don't buy it. (but i do buy the fact that the koreans are serving food, sashimi no less. next thing you kno they'll be dry cleaning everyone's clothes to get those awful blood stains out) but then, there are stranger things going on than that, like... THE FUCKING POLAR BEAR! WHAT THE FUCK? anyways, i hope the koreans start speaking english soon or else put some subtitles up. not only would i like to kno what they're saying (i'm too lazy to ask my korean friends), but people who don't speak english usually die before the people who do speak english. with such a large cast, some of them are bound to be mauled to death by that giant invisible monster. or the weird backgammon guy. anyways, i expect this show will be fun to watch and is probably the first new show this season that i actually like.

which is not something i can say about csi: new york. what is this crap? i didn't kno it could get worse than miami. i thot zuiker was supposed to be overseeing this show. the crimes are relatively unbelievable and boring and so is most of the cast. how can you squander the acting skills of gary and melina (the toast of mayfair, fraulein sally bowles!), and the ho-o-o-otness of eddie, hill and carmine? i may give it another chance or two, but as of now, i'm giving them a big *pbbbt*.

alrite. i said last week that i hoped that none of the women of the apprentice make it to the end. i stick by that statement. are these women not the most horrible people ever? i either have to congratulate casting or call to have them all thrown into a volcano (perhaps one in vanuatu!). it's incredibly entertaining to watch all the infighting and delusions going on in apex, but the producers are not giving the women a fair chance at the job by putting together this team. anyways, before i get into all that, let's talk about mosaic. i have to say that while i was skeptical about raj at first, i think if any of the men should come in second to john, it should be him. also, it seems a little silly to me that they picked the pm randomly when one of them had restaurant experience. but even sillier than that was the notion that a hot waiter would change the minds of the queers who came in to eat. how homophobic could you get? okay, okay, it's not that silly. while i found it offensive, i can't help but admit that it would totally have worked on me. i was actually secretly hoping that john WOULD bend over and show us a li'l som'n som'n. back to the women. first off, why is jennifer such an idiot? "piaza"? "zaggit"? how could she have thot that she brot the team together when she was really just yelling at them the whole time? what was her problem with stacy? that she looked like she was 10? i just cannot believe she could not understand how to play this game (no, bill, this is a game. it's a competition with a prize at the end. what else could it possibly be?) you never ever bring people into the boardroom if they don't deserve to be there. did she not watch the last season? you need a good reason for people to be there besides the fact that you don't like them and dub them "havoc wreakers." mebbe trump tricked her by getting rid of stacie last week (okay, i must admit, there's hope for the other jennifer. she straight out called all the girls out about stacie's firing). it was so obvious that sandy should have been taken into the boardroom if jennifer had wanted to stay in the game. even if you liked the job that sandy did, she was the reason that you guys failed. and yet, even in the end, in the taxi ride, after both bill and carolyn tried to explain it to her multiple times, she still didn't get it. she was talking about how her friend sandy sold her out. wake up from whatever dream world you're living in already. glad she's gone, but half of me hopes that there'll still be lots of drama (and i do believe there will be... get off my designer dress!) as a side note, is it me, or is it becoming too obvious who's going to lose the tasks? last week, trump talked about saving money (the ladies went over budget) and this week, he talked about getting the respect of those who work for you (lunatic jennifer is talked about incessantly behind her back). hmmm... mebbe next week trump could just tell us which team loses and save us all some time.

so wednesday was the first day of the autumn quarter. first days are always fun because you get a new pool of people in (some) of your classes and new people are great. on my way to and from class, i counted at LEAST thirty fags. they sure are everywhere these days.

in my first class, it was basically the typical mix of asians (predominantly chinese people looking for that padding for their gpa... no they cannot take it out of genuine interest; don't be ridiculous) and creepy white people. while he was kinda creepy, there was one guy who had nice hair. blond and blue (i think, i didn't really pay that much attention to anything that wasn't his hair. how lily is that?). he resembled bradley cooper with more of a beard (and eyes that aren't in two different latitudes). this coupled with his hair made him one to watch in this class. didn't look queer (except for the hair. it really was nice), and he's not exceptionally hot, but one to watch nonetheless (you grab at what you can get in these classes). his name? no fucking clue. i think it started with a j? prof took attendance on wed. and thurs. however, forgive me for not giving a fuck who these freaks are but i wasn't listening. oops, was that too harsh? mhmhmhmhmhm...

in my other class of the day (let me tell you, i LOVE having only two classes a day most days), again, asians and creepy white people, tho i must say they were less creepy than the ones in the morning class. one particular guy of interest (again, blond and blue. what is it with the blond and blues these days? i used to be such a brown and brown person) was some guy whose last name was... ford, i think? there's a good 75 chance he's a queer. here's the breakdown: mannerisms and speech, not queer; hair, clothes, general look, slightly-homely-female-friend-who-is-not-a-girlfriend-but-looks-like-she-wants-to-be (i.e. faghag, type 2a), and, here's the kicker, he crossed his legs like a mo, queer. usually mannerisms is the easiest way to tell (god knos that's why they all DO it. no one REALLY talks and walks like that). these days, look is tricky. it used to be all straight guys couldn't dress. damn you queer eye for making it okay for the hets to look good. the thing that really tips the scale toward a fag decision was the cross of the legs. very few straight men like to cross their legs like that in this country, because supposedly their genitals are simply too big for it (yeah, i believe you), but the queers do it, yes they do. anyways, i've only had the class once, so much more research must still be done, but that's one to watch. on a side note, there's a big asian (prob chinese) queen in that same class. he doesn't dress particularly well and he needs to do something about that facial hair and the hair on his head, but it's painfully obvious he's gay. he started speaking and that, as they say, was that. i'll have to keep an eye on him because he's potential competition (ha ha ha ha...)

on thursday, i had my third class, and surprise! asians and creepy white people! well, there were exceptions. there were actually quite a few hot girls in this class. i had no idea what they were doing in this class, but one of them went to china and loved it (WHY!?) and the others were all history majors who needed to take a non-western hist. class. ohhh... there was one guy who was kinda cute, but nothing special (brown and brown, i think) because 1) he was wearing a sports jersey, ew in so many ways, and 2) he was a SOPHOMORE. *shudder* 19! 1985? *mmbt* i just puked in my mouth, i'm so disgusted with myself. he seemed like a nice guy tho who still had some of that frosh idealism in him and that's always very awww. anyways, there were a few people in this class that i kno i've taken a class with them before, but for the life of me, i can't remember which ones. they were all chinese majors, so that's not a surprise, but it kinda bothers me my memory is so bad these days. i think i need to stop taking all those drugs. the prof in this class had written several textbooks (none of which we're using for the class, go figure) but her chinese pronunciation was really subpar. especially compared to the other two profs. we were talking about chinese pronunciation for pinyin (for instance, q is pronounced "ch", x is "sh", c is "ts" and so on), and when i pointed out that when an a is followed by an n, it's different than when it's followed by an ng, she didn't seem to agree with me (please, woman! you're messing with my first language here! plus it's something that was confirmed when i took linguistics). i'm a little disappointed, cuz i don't like it when my profs lose credibility like that. granted, she's a history prof and not a language one, but still, it doesn't make me happy.

moving is a bitch from hell

one day i'll have enuf money to pay someone else to move for me. i do not want to be involved with it at all.

on wednesday, there was the puyallup fair, and guess who was there? none other than real world danny. how adorable is he? i mean, really.

was joey not totally gay this week? he threw a party so that he could talk to a hottie in his apartment complex. that's something _i_ would do. i mean, really.

when i spoke of survivor a couple weeks ago, i forgot to mention brady the FBI AGENT and of course... jeff. the real reason i come back to this show season after season. this week's show was great, except i can't tell the women apart (the same problem i'm having with the apprentice. how about some more diverse casting?). please, producers, start telling what TYPE of people they are. if you don't tell me that one's a slut and the other one's a born-again christian mother of six, then i'll never figure it out. chop chop! of course, it was obvious dolly (the super cute sheep farmer. see how that works?) was the one to go. once they got back from the challenge and immediately focused on dolly's indecision and wavering back and forth, you already knew she was outta there. plus, there was that revealing moment when pre-law chatterbox bitch with the ugly bikini talked to the "older women" about voting dolly out. i think it's cruel they make you wait a whole week to see the repurcussions of the oust. i wanna see some claws! next week, both tribes have to go to tribal council (i only wish it would mean that the episode was twice as long), and that means drama. ehehehe...

the apprentice was borderline disgusting. okay, it wasn't, but i felt bad for stacie. she didn't lose this task for apex, even tho the producers tried to show jennifer (that idiot!) making disapproving eye-rolls at stacie for picking up the 800 cases of toothpaste a little too late in the day. it was all maria's fault and she blamed everyone else but herself. did you see her jet out of the boardroom to get the rest of the women back? "this is our chance to get rid of stacie while i save my ass from getting kicked out." that bitch! then we saw as all of the women ganged up on stacie, painting her as a mpd psycho out to get the girls. whatever. stacie wasn't going to win, but she shouldn't have been booted this week. i hope maria falls off one of donald's 10000-story buildings. as of now, i hope none of the women make it to the end.

when i watched the csi premiere, it surprised me how much i actually missed csi and the cast. the whole cast, not just george and eric. the show is addicting. more more more!

manhunt. one of my favorite words in the english language. where have you been all my life? not only can i not wait for this show, but i would sacrifice goats for it. i hope they'll run around with current models like julien (those cheekbones!), tyson (those eyebrows!), both img clients, as well as jason, james, brad, tyrone, doug, shaun, dayton, jon, russell, chad, oh there are just too many! only eight episodes...? ;_;

ghost in the shell 2, the visuals were absolutely breathtaking. the story was good, but really, how many times have we been here before?

yay, school starts on wednesday...

the emmys and everything else

oooh kay... angels in america got as many as they could get, garry shandling was pretty funny, and sopranos took the best drama FINALLY. plus, i'm a sucker for huge gatherings of famous and famously beautiful people, so of course... loved it.

the best part of award shows, i think, is not the people that the camera is focused upon, but that really cute guy in the back. there's always a really cute guy in the back, somebody's boyfriend or husband or aspiring actor/model seat-filler or something. if you're reading this and you have access to the seating chart, GIVE IT TO ME. i kno, huh? how can i be a stalker if i don't even have the awards show seating charts? i'm shamed.

i agree with chris rock. who the fuck is elaine stritch?

all the stars were looking good. jenn and brad, sarah and matthew, seth, ryan and marissa...

i wonder what phantom planet thought of the awards show version of "california"?

i'm so stupid. how did i not kno that joely richardson was british? her mom's british, her dad's british, she was born in london... i guess her american accent was just too convincing. well, it's always been a little weird, but i thot that was just the way she talked. i mean, next to julian mcmahon's attempt, it's nearly unnoticeable.

you kno, if taye diggs' and matthew fox's shows don't work out this fall, i have the perfect solution that includes BOTH of them. boys, call me.

go michael imperioli and drea de matteo. speaking of drea de matteo, what's with all the weird cuts? they happen every year and i'm beginning to think they're a secret tradition. yay, drea won, now let's cut to her new co-star matt lebanc, WHO HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH HER SOPRANOS WIN. granted, we saw enuf of the "family" thruout the evening, but was someone at nbc secretly working in the control room? plus, someone mention homos? let's cut to sean hayes! is he even gay (>_>)? someone mention latinos? cut to antonio banderas! is he even latino? isn't he from spain?

i'm kinda sad that they couldn't give justin, ben and patrick emmys as well, tho if any one of them deserved it, it was jeffrey wright. that's not purple, mary. that color up there is mauve.

a widely-watched awards show is the perfect time to advertise your new fall schedule. thus, i'm all ready to watch lost (from the guy who did alias and felicity) and desperate housewives. is this really abc? why am i going to watch lost? good question. matthew, ian, dominic, and josh. plus, daniel dae kim and some korean woman. i support hot guys and asians. and that other show? only this. he was in that smallville episode with shawn ashmore. the ONE smallville episode i ever caught. anyways, the shows could suck, but at least they'll look good doing it.

collateral. good movie. you've probably already seen it. vanity fair. entertaining and beautifully shot, but i was expecting barry lyndon. the one thing barry lyndon didn't have in it: thomas sturridge. i kno, i kno, 1986. does that make me a pedo? if so then FUCK YOU FOR JUDGING ME. who do you think you are? i remember him from that nbc production of gulliver's travels. he played lemuel's son. "oh that was HIM?"

amazing race. GOD DAMN WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET RID OF COLIN AND CHRISTIE? my ox is broken. apprentice. best... boardroom... EVER. i hated that ass and i'm glad he's gone. not that the asian girl or black girl were competent at all, but at least they weren't overly-confident goofy-looking motherfuckers. yes, i mean bradford. survivor. VANUATU! it's fun to say, everyone say it with me. VANUATU! i cannot believe the men lost the first challenge AGAIN. and furthermore, i cannot believe that THEY VOTED OUT BROOK! are they fucking STUPID. you don't vote out your most capable members at the beginning of the game! you're shooting yourselves in the FOOT. if the old men keep voting out the younger guys, not only will my beloved john be gone, but they'll lose challenges. don't ever underestimate the women, you stupid fucks! plus, one of the guys was talking about how women get along and men scheme against each other? WHAT FUCKING PLANET IS HE FROM? are all the men gay or something? hmmm... now that would be an interesting survivor. let's all ponder that now.

and FINALLY, friday nite, pacific place, top floor. how fun is it to watch gay boys running around like little kids? i remember being drugged and not bitter. those were good times, huh? *sigh* anyways, they were as cute as new books. mmm...

the hot boys of the past week

i think this week was a particularly good week for hot boys, what with all the new shows premiering. but before we get to that, how about some real people.

the waiter at the district on a fine labor day monday was a looker. tall, medium build, short brown hair, nice smile. what more could one want? perhaps the hottie that moved in to the apartment directly above mine. if i described him, you'd think he and the waiter were the same person... oh, wait! no... couldn't be. i've only seen him twice (both this week, once on tuesday and the other, why, just yesterday) and very very briefly, but woo-ee, i hope i run into him more often. with a name like harrison, who could resist? (side note, i THINK i heard sex the other day. there was a very rhythmic squeaking of a bed coming from up there, and i don't think he was doing jumping jacks on it. whatever he really was doing, i don't care. i can imagine whatever i want.) i'm sure there were others, but they weren't special enuf for me to remember... or i just have a bad memory.

not really real per se, but some of those french kicks boys might be worth your time. saw them opening for keane and was drunk enuf to have enjoyed their set, not to mention their tite jeans.

on tuesday, we watched zach braff freak out (adorably) on scrubs and godel brandon, of brandon and nicole, take off his shirt (sizzlingly) on the amazing race. i kno, i kno, brandon's a fucking dumbass and what's with the hair?, but it's not like _i'm_ the one who's planning to marry him.

finally watched queer eye uk. hi, julian. hi, dane. that's all.

thursday brot the mediocrely-scripted hijinks of joey, but alas, where are the hot guys? i hope phoebe visits and brings mike, and rachel stops by with brad... (oh, whoops, i think i'm getting mixed up...) the real sweet ass popped up in the apprentice. uhm... hi, john. nice to meet you. is it that the rest of the guys were so bleh-to-ugly or that he was truly a stud? again, don't care. i'm rooting for him to win, despite the fact that he's a little bitchy in the boardroom. actually, that made him cuter, strangely enuf... speaking of bitchy, i'm so glad they show cutie will on big brother every week in the jury house. it's like a refreshing blast of sticky, wet... is it just me that wants to see a sequel to bb5 called "will and drew"?

today, jack & bobby, matt long, lick him all over. i'm calling dibs, RITE NOW.

survivor premieres next week. john k., a self-proclaimed artist living as a mechanical bull operator in la after being a model in ny. hmmm... artist... model... mechanical bull... yeah. i'll be watching. btw, when does that taye diggs show happen? i'm glad upn got my letter, but i sent it like 5 years ago.

what's up with nbc sucking so much? las vegas? LAX!? MEDICAL INVESTIGATION!?! are you kidding me? 5 josh duhamels, 4 blair underwoods and 16 christopher gorhams would not make me want to watch that crap.

okay, i'm done.

it smells like shit outside of my apartment, and i don't kno why. i'm not talking about just something that's stinky. it actually smells like the neighborhood took a collective invisible shit on the sidewalks. it disgusts me to come and go from my apartment, and i can't open the windows without smelling it. if this is what chemical warfare is like, then i surrender.
