pork chops and applesauce

The trip to NYC fell through, but I'm not all that broken up about it. I think I'm stressed out about the new job, as the honeymoon period is over and it's time to get lots of shit done. I'm at the point where I don't know what kind of workload to expect, and don't yet know if I'm doing enough, so I'm doing it all. You know what I mean?

Anyhow...Cyndi Lauper will perform at the 9:30 club tomorrow night, but I'm debating wether or not to go. I've been burnt out by Friday a lot lately (see above) and am reluctant to make any sort of commitments this weekend, just because I don't feel like it! Perhaps I need one of those weekends. Just Jimbo. Don't anybody be givin' me shit for not doing this or that or not going here or there.

Went out to the International House of Husbands (Duplex Diner) last night with Mitzhi Jean MacWhorigan last night for some good gossip and food. We totally trashed all of you, especially you rude-ass delinquents in New York City. Jeezus get over yourselves! Since I had shaved my cho-cha earlier, I was not a wildebeest. gnu. wildenstein. I keep hearing that he's coming to town in January. Up for some NWN, Geek? Considering that weekend's events, I think you'll be a busy boy. Anyway, I love the pork chops, mashed potatoes and applsauce entree at Duplex, and Alex the cute waiter too, with whom I flirted and showered with compliments. Anhow, this woofy beartrap was there, but I didn't feel justified flirting as I had just bashed gay Republicans earlier that day and I haven't been looking very bearish myself lately anyway.

CivIII CONQUESTS is on sale for a mere $10!!! I managed to snag it just in time for the holidays.

After several long, dry months, I seem to be getting lots of IMs from new people and messages via bigmuscle, Friendster and such sites. It can't be my pics, cuz I've been using the same 'ol tired ones for a long time now. I love making theories, and I'm thinking it's two things: a.) people are stressed out this time of year and it's making them horny; and b.) all the holiday messages we get thru the media tells us that this is the most wonderful time of the year and that you have to be with family so therefore if you're not with family or with a loved one you must in fact be unloved and sub-human. Thus, this makes perfectly normal single people feel lonely and they tend to reach out more this time of year. Which makes me dislike this time of year even more if my theory is correct, as it's a time of year that makes single people feel bad.

You, "shaved your cho-cha..." I can't begin to tell you what I kick I got out of that sentence. Thank you!

Theory B is right on the mark. As a single person, the holidays make me feel "unloved and sub-human." Yea for the holidays.

I'm with Charles; that's why I've often had issues with the holidays. I'm with Ed, too. You shaved your chocha?! Awwright!

Mitzhi also mentions shaving her 'chochi' in today's entry. However, I mentioned it first to friends on Sunday...Gurl and Woodchuck and Jon can vouch for that.

next time you have peas try applesauce on em - preferrably the cinomonned-up kind - awesome
(and it does double duty of sticking your peas together so they don't roll around your plate!)

That's just plain wierd. I will not mix my peas in with my applesauce.

Try it dude - it really mixes quite well - the textures, the flavors, the contrast of the warm and the cold... and those damn peas don't roll around your plate! It's really quite good - and I can definitely think of weirder things to put in yer mouth LOL
