It's supposed to hurt to punch. Raw knuckles, etc. Would I need a boxing glove?

You know, Buffy for me is the type of show that I have no interest in whatsoever anymore. I loved it growing up (well, up to season 3 really, though I do think Hush from season 4 is brilliant), but I have zero interest in re-watching it. Part of it is that to me the memory went sour because Whedon ruined both it and Angel past the first couple of seasons. The other part is that I have a real distaste for Whedon and his ego. He fancies himself a lot of things he isn't (his stuff isn't as clever as he thinks; his dialogue is easily recognizable and I mean that in a pretentious, self-consciously "clever", cringe-worthy, clunky, had-to-be-written-by-Whedon sort of way; he laughably thinks he's a feminist) and his shows are hideously overrated, especially considering how many have actually been any good. He just loves to cram angst down viewers' throats because as he put it, he gives people what they need and not what they want. Well, I don't want your shows, you egotistical twit.

I never knew that about Whedon. I believe it, though.

I still like Dr. Horrible.
Ninja, he came up with that godawful Dollhouse concept and yet the dude thinks he's for feminism.
Who knew pine nuts made your mouth taste bitter for days after consumption? I thought I was dying of cancer and did a Google search. I've never had pine nuts, but I had a pasta dish on Tuesday with it.

The take away? Google is your friend, people! And pine nuts are the debbil (for some people). Go ahead, look it up!

It turns out she's been tasting the same thing and chalked it up to some new iron supplements. Now she knows. Gross. I'm not sure I ever want to try a pine nut again. This feeling is awful. It lasted about 4 days.

There is a mosquito in this house that is of course feasting on me and that I've yet to even see. Two nights in a row now I've heard the awful sound of it flying around me in the dark and yet no sighting of him during the day.

I don't know much of his work (thank goodness, I'm guessing). Was Dollhouse a horror?

What's a mosquitero?

I am not into the vampire/zombie stuff, though I love me a good ghost story.

Medussa, you just brought back memories of waking up and seeing those bloodsuckers all over the mosquitero, just sitting there wishing. I was covered in scabs as a kid thanks to mosquitoes.

Ninja, it's a mosquito net, which you put up over a bed like a tent so they can't get in.

Last time I went to the DR, I had to go through a routine of locking the bathroom door and killing every single mosquito before I could shower. There were usually at least five, and more likely ten.

As for Dollhouse, people tried to defend it, mostly because a lot of people don't want to admit that Whedon isn't god and that everything he touches doesn't turn to gold. It sucked.
Well, posting now to say I took the seasonal job after waiting a couple of days for a reply from other jobs. Good thing since I never got a response. I start on the 15th of May. I am a bit annoyed that the ad said the housing would be a single occupancy room and what happened? I received an email from another person who was hired that we're going to be roommates! Argh! Ah well.
Anywho, I'm trying to come up with my list of things to take. I already reloaded on hair products of course!
I am trying to recall which books I've always wanted to read but haven't yet, because I can see myself reading by the beach on my time off. I haven't read much of James Baldwin, so there's one I've always wanted to read but haven't. Maybe also Ellison's Invisible Man. Maybe some Eudora Welty. Also want to try Es'Kia Mphahlele's In Corner B. Italo Calvino is another I like.
Got any suggestions? Should I give East of Eden a try?
Saria, congratulations!! I can't wait to hear how your adventure goes. How exciting!!

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
Thanks, spring. I figure I could do worse than working by the beach for four months. Pics will be provided.

Try Travels with Charlie. It's fun.
Yay for Saria! Yes please keep us all posted as to your adventures! You are going to Maine, right?

I trust your fine literary taste, ninja.

Summer reading makes me think of Lolita since I read it throughout the trip to Peru for my brother's wedding. Plus he takes her on a road trip during the summer. I love Lolita!

TRBL, Sunset Beach right here in NY. Yep, it has a soap opera name.

Hey! Maybe you could make a tv novella with that title while you're there.

And congrats!!

I'd have to change it to something like Playa del Sol since Sunset Beach doesn't translate as neatly into Spanish.
I think I prefer to fancy an Agatha Christie Evil Under the Sun type of mystery.

Thanks, Phoenix!
I got all excited, then boom! Let down. I was reading saria's post about her summer job-saw the question about Maine and for some reason I got all excited about her being in Maine. Not sure why. Then reading on - no Maine.

One good reason to only maintain a small circle of friends is that three out of four murders are committed by people who know the victim. ~George Carlin~

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~
Oh my WORD!! Why are you such IDIOTS!!!! You do this for a living, but the reason you're no good at it is because you simply do not care about helping anyone. If you did you would have told us last WEEK we could schedule our move online. Do you have any idea how your carelessness has impacted our life?? Of course you don't, because you just do. not. care.

Thanks for nothing.

Why am I so nervous about my date tomorrow? I'm nearly 30 and I thought I be over this crap by now
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
