In other news...

Works still sucks! I had to go in early today, but I was still scheduled to work my normal 9 hours. The owner came in about an hour before my scheduled time to leave. He made me stay an extra hour. Does anyone know how to get their hands on elephant tranquilizers or a tazer?

There was a weird couple in the store yesterday that smelled of dried pee...eeeeewww! They were waiting for a gift-basket to be made while I was tasting wines with the daughter of the owners of Ladera Winery in Napa. It was a little difficult to properly smell the wines with the smell of urine wafting over...

I was flipping through channels tonight and caught Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, and Ally Sheedy accepting a special award on the MTV Movie Awards for The Breakfast Club. Molly looked great. I guess my crush on her has hit 20-year mark. I just LOVE redheads. Especially those that can apply lipstick with their boobs. Can you believe that The Breakfast Club is 20 years old?!?!?

The Detroit mayoral race and debates are getting ugly. Read this or this.

Vanilla Ice, Tommy Tutone, The Knack, Haddaway, and The Motels are trying to re-ignite their careers on NBC's Hit Me Baby One More Time. Much luck to The Motels. The rest? Not so much. I just hope that Vanilla Ice ignites him self and there's no one there to put out the fire. Now please excuse me as I must be "rollin' in my 5.0, ragtop down so my hair can blow..." ...NOT!!! Mr. Van Winkle can kiss my grits.

I'm kind of excited as I ordered a digital camera through my Dell account. It should be here in a few days. Hopefully I'll figure out how to use it and I'll be able to post some pictures soon. I also ordered a 512MB flash/memory/whatever card to go with it so I can take lots of pictures. I'll try to take some good pictures "Up North" in July. I still have half a roll of "old school" film to use up on my "old school" camera. I have some pictures of the restaurant's Christmas party that I still have to develop. I just haven't had anything to take a picture of since. I took my camera to Florida, but there was nothing there worth taking pictures of. I could have taken some poolside pictures, but that may have been construed as "creepy"...because it would have been "creepy". I'm getting the digital camera largely because of the trip to Switzerland I want to take in the fall. I hope that I can go. One of my kick-ass landlords (who is a kick-ass flight attendant) recommended that I wait until mid-September for the ticket costs to go WAY DOWN. I love the idea of saving about 75% of the cost of the current ticket prices available on Orbitz for October...but I just worry that it's cutting it too close and I may not be able to go at all. The tickets may sell out. I don't know what to do...

The Pistons game is on behind me and San Antonio is winning in the 4th quarter. I guess I hope the Pistons win. I don't mind the Pistons so much as they're sort of underdogs (although they did win last year).

I think I'll go to Glen's store tomorrow and pick up the extremely awesome first season of Degrassi Junior High on DVD. Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High were two of the best shows ever produced. The writing was daring as it covered a lot of taboo subjects (abortion, AIDS, abuse, condoms, sex, homosexuality, suicide, drugs, alcohol, etc.). It predates My So-Called Life (which was very good, mind you). It may be slightly tamer in presentation, but the subject matter was usually a little more daring. It was a Canadian show, you know. Degrassi is just another reason to love Canada. It was the first time I ever saw a goth guy on TV (Claude). Claude killed himself. I've never seen a goth kid kill himself on American TV...and this was in 1990. Most Americans didn't know what "goth" was in 1990. I graduated high school in 1990 and the timing was just about right. I have two major reasons for loving Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High, Spike and Caitlin. More pics here and here. Spike rocked my world...she was cute and she wore Pogues T-shirts...

Holy crap WUMD people! Look at what I found on the Degrassi site...look carefully. To those of you who are not WUMD people, this is a guy we knew. Holy crap! Are you wiping your guinea? (Sorry, inside joke.)

Random poll- What's your favorite preserve/jam/jelly/marmalade?

That'll do for now...

Jam or preserves. Hate marmalade.

The first picture remind's me of Mr. Tact's line:
"Which one of you is Jay's sister?"
