At the St. Louis zoo this weekend, it was packed. And with people of varying ages and socio-economic backgrounds. Of all the thousands of people there, I was among the few under 40 who didn't have a tattoo. When asked why I don't have a tattoo, I usually explain that that I wanted a way to express my individuality and make me unique. I get odd looks sometimes, because that's why most people do get tattoos. The funny thing is, by doing so, they become the majority, and just like everyone else. Funny how that works.

Picked up Alien Resurrection today.

Grilled perfect salmon for dinner, and had a marvelous Kansan Spatelese with it. I hate questions such as, "If you were stranded on a desert island and could only have one [fill in the blank] for the rest of your life, what would it be?" I hate these because I am such a diverse person, and I know whatever I chose I would eventually become disenchanted with over time. Unlike most people however, I have had enough variety in some things, that I know exactly what I would choose in some catagories.

Havana Monticristo Cigar
Plizner Urquell
a Rhienhessen Spatlese

Picked up two cars from the Cartoon Network's Hot Wheels Acceleracers series, both from Team 'Metal Maniacs' the Hollowback and Rivited:

SWEET! Confirmation at 2228 hours that my Bear McCreary autographed soundtrack is ON IT'S WAY!!! Critics have called his last one (Season One) a score, and this one, an album. Apparently its much richer in depth than his last one. My review of the preview tracks can be found here. I await with eager anticipation.

I am sorry there was so much riff raff at the St. Louis Zoo. You should try the Fort worth Zoo.

I'm sure there's no riff raff there!

That so rocks dude. I gave Tony my turntable so he could throw down a beat.

I love the comment about not having a tattoo. I will use that in the future as I too, have opted to keep my glorious naked body unmarked...:-)

Re: Tattoo

Now, I'm not going to go so far as to say my naked body is, "glorious" (hasn't been, really since I left the Air Force) but I think I would view any mark upon it as an imperfection. Just my personal view, about me. I don't look down upon people who choose to get, for example, the Maker's Mark logo tattooed on them for the right reasons.

Superladies, they're always trying to tell you their secret identity. Think it'll strengthen the relationship, or something like that. I say: girl, I don't want to know about your mild-mannered alter ego. You say that you're a... Ultra Mega Lightning Babe or something like that, that's all right with me. I'm good. I'm good.

Only one of each?

Glad you're getting the scores you've been wanting.

Hopefully, the next four days will be much easier. You need to catch up on sleep - you'll want to be well rested for Friday night!!!!! :)

Ah...Movie Night, of course! Office Space here we come. It will change your perception of work for the rest of your life. It's liberating!

It would be nice to see you on a Friday Night sometime again Carly. Between you and Babs my Friday night choices have grown smaller...I can only handle so much of the Zone!!!

Actually, I haven't gone there in a while...:-)

Oh, and the above comment was from Chris in case it wasn't obvious...:-)

Re: hmmmm

Might I suggest you create a free livejournal account simply for the ease of responding to posts and an avatar? That's the only reason I have so many; not to post on them, but to reply. Everyone's doing it...

Ok, I guess. Darn it. I wanted to be lazy for as long as possible and now I've been called on it...Here goes. :-)

Re: hmmmm

I justed looked at this again and it seems whiney wich makes me want to choke myself. Sorry, I should have made it more obvious that it was in jest. Anyhoo, maybe we could all do a movie night sometime. I vote for Carla to host it...Ha!

Re: hmmmm

We get in trouble all the time for inflections which are not passed on through the written word. The answer of course is to overcompensate - which again can sometimes backfire. I am most often accused of being abrasive when I'm trying to illustrate absurdity by being absurd but it really isn't a perfect forum.

Re: hmmmm

I was in the United Kingdom stationed at Royal Air Force Alconbury attached to the Joint Analysis Center in 1992 when my father sent me Rush Linbaugh's first book. That's when I first heard that phrase. You were six years old.

Explain to me again exactly how the fuck that's your line?

Re: hmmmm

I would love for everyone to get together at my house for a movie night.....I've been wanting to introduce the Howton's to everyone for a long,long,long time.
If only we could find someone to babysit the two kids!

Dude, I don't really exist. I'm a figment of her overactive imagination! She created this account so her two personalities could chat with each other.

Re: Woo Hoo

Excellent! Would you sir, like me to create you an avatar perchance???
chrisbarrett77 at 2006-06-07 16:44 (UTC) (Link)

Re: Woo Hoo

I'm going to play around on my pooter and see if I can come up with something fun. If I feel uninspired by my creation, then I will take you up on your offer. Thanks!

Re: Woo Hoo

Excellent - I love it!

Awesome line! I've always thought to myself, "How is that tattoo going to look when Im 75?" The answer is usually negative, and I remain unmarked.

You are wise beyond your years.

schpydurx at 2006-06-08 17:18 (UTC) (Link)
but you won't be able to see it when you're 75, so what's the difference if you grandkids who are waiting on you to die do?
