best christmas present ever

Last night I received the best christmas present ever from Hannah Reader. She made it for me.

It is my boo buddy.

I took this picture looking right at him.

I had to set the camera up and turn my back to take this picture.

This is the best present ever. It is one of a kind. I am the only one with this perfect boo pillow.

If you are having trouble remembering what this boo buddy is from, it is from the best video game ever: Super Mario World.

Don’t mess with a boo buddy.

quickie from phone

currently at home for the holidays.

Will be back in los angeles tomorrow night, but it is snowing right now so I hope it stops soon.

Typing is slow on an iPhone.

Me and Jaxon did the GP bar tour. Oh man. Finally had some hamms and played a ton of pool.

Excited to get home, see someone.

Until then………

Wonders: The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get

When you sleep
I will creep into your thoughts
like a bad debt that you can’t pay
take the easy way and give in

I love this song from “Vauxhall and I,” an album that I wasn’t immediately fond of. Now it is my favorite Morrissey solo album (do I need to use “solo” when I say it’s a Morrissey album, or is that reduntant?). A four hour math homework session in Eugene with this album on repeat really made it grow on me, and it sort of defined my summer.

It reminds me of how hot it was, and laying on the lawn, and living in awesome, awesome chaos.

Anyway, “The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Gethas an awesome guitar hook (reminiscent of Strangeways era Smiths) and the typical Moz wit. Why, this could be the most charming song about stalking and infatuation of all time!

The tongue-in-cheek creepiness of the song is great, and I was really disappointed that he didn’t play it at the concert.

However – I have noticed that they do have this at karaoke bars sometimes. It is totally my next song!

lion heads

end of year 2007

ain’t what it’s cracked up to be

Ahh.. I’m home. To clarify.

End of the year should be relaxing and less stressful than the rest of the year, right?

WRONG! It should be stressful! And I don’t even get stressed out. But I am. Place of employment is insane right now and I feel myself getting super stressed out. Now, I sort of pride myself in being pretty easy going about work things, and I only freaked out one time in college (when I was writing a 100 page paper, so can you blame me?).

But oh man, I don’t know if it’s because I have some personal things on my mind lately, or because all the pressure from a lot of people at work, or what. But it is a real relief to get home lately.

So there is that short post, explained. Salut!

I’m ready to go around the world. The following post is a story about my ride home last night, and it contains a lot of motorcycle talk.

Maybe you’ll find it interesting? The story, plus more is after the jump.

Sportos on my doorstep

I’m at work, with 3 hours of sleep.

I’m delirious.


I’m going up to Oregon on Sunday to to do the holiday thing. This means the usual: Christmas Eve day relaxation, contemplating shaving for church that evening, then madness all day next.

I’m excited for the madness, as I miss my family.

I’m coming back to L.A. for New Years, but who knows what is going on for that?

And who knows whats going to happen after the year turns to 2008.

Not Dick Clark.

I made the greatest GBV/Robert Pollard mix ever. I just need to tweak ONE song at the end.

I’m tired of sitting in front of a computer all day.

I’m reading Jupiter’s Travels and it is the most incredible book ever. I’m reading it pretty slowly, wich is a first for me. I usually blow through books I’m really into over a weekend.

And finally – big things are happening.

P.S. I just received a handwritten card from some company in Canada wishing me Happy Holidays and giving me a Starbucks gift card. Bizarre. I don’t know any of these people on the card, or the company. And I don’t drink Starbucks.
