I hate most of the words chosen this year from the banned list. Does that mean people shouldn't say that an airplane bathroom is occupied?
I'm very upset "winning" did not make the list. I would have bet money it would have. I even said it here. I would have lost a lot of money.
When I was a teen "blowback" was slang for returning the favor of oral sex. So I can't hear the word used in any context without giggling. (yeah I'm immature)
A lot of the words chosen just didn't bother me.

Which leads me to another story I decided to try Jarlsberg cheese. I wanted to because Shirley likes it. I didn't like it. Well i ate it plain. It might taste different in a sandwich. I'm not big on Muse either.
I saw the commercial for Gwen's HL line at target. At first I thought it was a commercial for hamburgers. But then I heard the song "Harajuku Girls" play, and I thought "What a strange song to use to promote hamburgers"
Note to Gwen: If you ever do make a hamburger for a restaurant I'd buy one (I have a great name for it "A Little Something Refreshing")

For now just think of it as a "lost" comic.
I've only posted 2 comics so far anyway. Maybe when I have more time I'll make some more.

I think I just put together parts of episodes I had already seen.

Can you believe that they had no McRibs! The manager didn't order enough! That place is so poorly run good thing I'm not working there! RED FLAG!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't wait to move to another McDonalds that I hope is run better than this place!

I have a soft spot for late 90s emo music.
The funny thing about Dan's novel on Gossip Girl is how it upset his family so much. I hope I don't have that problem. Maybe I should focus on school stories. Like stories about absurd sandwiches or really horrible school assemblies.

This was strange since I had a dream about Keypers a month ago, and I don't think it was because I was spending too much time on the internet looking up vintage toys. It was cryptic.
I ready have an adult Tango and baby Taps and Pearl from childhood. Taps is Tango's baby.
I'm going to pretty her up!

Somebody is lying
This was too much of a hassle, and I was just a potential employee. Imagine what it would be like to work there?
I just told the person I don't want to work there. Let somebody else get duped! It won't be me. I hate to sound like a job snob here, but this one needs to get passed by. I'm might be stupid and desperate, but I'm not that stupid and desperate!

I had a job interview today, or so I thought.
I thought about all the bad job interviews I've done. Mistakes on my resume, not agreeing to relocate, not sucking up to my potential boss who obliviously wasn't paying attention to me and casually taking with other workers, not letting my potential employer keep my food handler card, not knowing what to do when children are running loose in a store, I gave a landline phone number, and I was really truly busy.
I could be the poster girl for bad interviews.
When I get there the person who is supposed to interview me is not there! Why scheule an interview with me and not even be there!? What the FUCKING BLOODY HELL!????
This one won't count since there actually never was one to begin with.

I wasn’t that picky as a kid about what I got. I didn’t care if I got things that weren’t candy like chips, pretzels, toys or pencils. I don’t like that ginger candy that comes in the red packaging. I’d get that a lot when I lived in a Chinese neighborhood. I remember one year my cousins Trick or Treated in my neighborhood and also complained about getting the ginger candy.
I remember when I was in 6th grade I wanted to pawn off my “bad” candy aka the candy I didn’t want. Two girls didn’t want the candy then they ganged up on me and poured the candy down my pants *shakes fist at them* They did it by the classroom door; the teacher came to the class and complained that there was a bunch of discarded candy by the door.
I was thinking about what happened to Dan in Gossip Girl by upsetting a lot of the people he knows by basing characters off them. I hope that doesn’t happen to me.

The people who thought it was really offensive must be really uptight or something. I wonder if Goth Talk was deemed offensive back in it's day?
I thought the J-Pop skit was pretty funny, but not as funny as The Spartan Cheerleader skits. I would like to see the J-Pop skit as a reoccurring skit; personally see a lot of potential if written well.

This "Happy Kitty" costume is pretty cheap. It's only the dress, and I think the leg warmers. It doesn't even include the hat! It's sold separately! I'd buy the hat and the bag by itself. They are cute. That mannequin kinda creeps me out.
Disclaimer: The pictures I used on this entry are not watermarked and I forgot where I got them. The one with all the Hello Kitty costumes I got from a newspaper.

He writes in "OAKLAND RAIDERS", just like that in all caps. Not "Al Davis death" or anything like that. As I sit there looking at what he put into Google I'm thinking "your lack of skills amazes me" He doesn't even know about the news tab in firefox. @.@ The one at the top of the page when you search. Or that the news section can be divided into categories; like sports. He still doesn't bother to read a whole website and just reads the summary. He still has trouble with double clicking.
And he had to watch all the different tributes on the different channels. I think I saw the CBS2/KCAL9 one at least 3 times. I could practically say it verbatim.
He wants to check my resume again! Why? I'm satisfied with it. At least it better than when he was just take copies of my resume to random people to evaluate it without me being there, or telling the person before they evaluate it that I have no work experience. Then he'll bring it back to me with something like "INCLUDE ALL WORK HISTORY!!!!!!!!!" written on it. What work history?
Friday, October 7, 2011
I'm not stupid I know rejection when I see it.
Here's why I thought my odds at getting the job were slim at best: no experience (although in that ad they said that was not a problem), I was the last person called back (AKA bottom of the barrel).
The main reason I really wanted that job was to show financial aid about proof of employment or unemployment if it didn't work out.
I was told to call back in 2 weeks if it doesn't work out with the other people, but I'm not holding my breath.
I'm so sick of my dad telling me I gotta finish college. How? Pay for it with the money from the job I don't have, or with the financial aid I got rejected from? I just want to finish up to shut him up.

I need to get out my LISA. J/K that was the only Apple product I ever used, and I used it in school. And then I thought about the Super Bowl and the wondrous ads. "Because 1984 won't be like 1984."
I feel like watching some Eureka Seven.
I wrote this on a PC which might possibly be riddled with viruses.
Tuesday, October 4, 2011
I'm not embarrassed of both my parents; just my dad. Although he has given me a wealth of materiel to write about.
Redheads will be extinct soon, so will the white blond haired blue eyed male. My dad is an endangered species. This is true I saw it on a reputable news program. Maybe I should put him on exhibit like in that Twilight Zone episode.
What Kurt told Rachel was a variation of the “whole lot of middle” speech. I still hope this isn't a Kurt-centric season like the last one was. He's been the focus in 2 of the 3 season 3 episodes. There were a few other references to season 1. Like the Asian vampires.
Giving Mike Chang some character development was nice.
I guess the new plotline will be dueling glee clubs within the same school? That's what it looked like in the previews.
As I was watching that show on prohibition in the US I was thinking "I'm glad I don't have to take notes on this right now". Too bad that is one of the non-marketable skills I'm good at.
Monday, October 3, 2011
Plus my mom was making me stay up all week. If I'm sleep deprived I'm more likely to get sick.
It's a pretty bad timing.
Sunday, October 2, 2011
Here are all the benefits I see:
My dad won't be so nosy about my mail
I don't have to worry about his crabby cycles/fits
I can get an decent internet connection (a higher priority to me than to my parents)
I can buy the food I like and want (no more having to eat nasty fish patties)
Friday, September 30, 2011
I was gonna have my dad drive me, but he was already super crabby and I didn't want to deal with it. It's the same as usual.
Dad: If you don't let me drive you. You're gonna fail and get lost! Don't complain about it!
Me: Fine! (thinking) I already had to endure a job fair with you yesterday.
The place wasn't too hard to find. The biggest problem was that I had to get up really early. I hadn't slept in for days. I did sorta get lost. (But I wasn't going to tell my dad) The map lied it looked closer on the map then it was in real life. Even though the map estimated it was 1/11th of a mile.
When I finally got there. I was still early. But listening to music on headphones in really frowned upon. I learned that at a job fair. :(
Here's how I interpreted it. They really needed another person for back up, and my application was at the bottom of the barrel. It made me think about my questionable membership in the Honor Society and how they needed me to help garden.
Who knew being unemployed and sitting on your ass watching UTB would pay off? Obviously the guy had really no idea what was being shown on the channel, but he works so, he's not sitting on his ass watching the channel. I mostly watch food shows anyway.
I was trying to figure out who this place was catering to. The Japanese? According to the guy the Japanese population spread out, and don't really live in the area. So they are catering to Korean and Chinese tastes since they are use to that type of food. I guess more so than a western taste. I have an idea for the place buy some ad time on UTB or in the local Japanese publications. But I didn't say that.
It was funny when he asked about anime. Since I put it on my resume because of that template I found on the web. If the resume did work I can't believe it did. Especially since it was "bad".
I'll know by Friday if I have the job or not.
Thursday, September 29, 2011
This one guy was trying to boost his cred or look like an everyman or something. Saying about how he went to the different schools in the district as a child/teen. And that he went to my former high school. He wanted people in attendance to applaud it. Because according to him "it's the best school around". Huh? :/ My old high school sucks they are not good. I wasn't proud that I went there. I would not applaud it. He also said he hangs out with his mom on the weekends who happens to still live in the neighborhood. TMI dude do I really need to know? As this was happening I was thinking "Blog in a bag! Slam dunk! This stuff writes itself."
It reminded me of when I was a junior in high school and my art class had to give a presentation about our projects. One of the principals or vice or co-principal (I forget which the administration at my high school was weird and never really cohesive) This person was no higher than a principal. Gave a speech for the art project presentation. I didn't see the need of it. It was just a presentation we did in the classroom. It wasn't an assembly or awards ceremony or anything.
Maybe they are members of Toastmasters or something. (When I was a freshman in college I thought Toastmasters had to do with toasted bread.)
I finally got my resume evaluated. With my input..sorta. Like always my dad kept talking over me. His bad advice was to use a bunch of stuff I did in 8th grade. He wanted me to put a club in high school I got kicked out of? He wanted me to make a resume like a writer. I'm not sure how that would work. I'm looking for entry level jobs. Non-writing jobs. I'll look for those after I get some degree.He didn't even want me to list that I went to high school and have a diploma. Of course I'm supposed to that is the highest level of education I completed. Sure I went to college, but I didn't graduate.
I was told to tailor my resume to every different position I'm applying to. That is way too complicated. I'll just sort of tweak it like I wouldn't send a food themed resume to an office job.
When I asked about providing a photo the lady gave me a WTH face. Even though I said "What if a really ugly person wants a job?" She told me since I'm not looking for modeling or acting jobs most places that require a photo are not legit. Well maybe a restaurant wants a really cute girl to cook burgers or something.
I personally think that too many non-job awards on a resume will make it look bloated. I was also told to get rid of hobbies. I only included that because I found it on a resume template.
My dad got mad because he didn't know what linkedin is. Why did he get mad when I said I wasn't going to do all the changes I was told to. It's my resume. I'm the one who's going to be using it.
The thing was mostly a bust. Most of what was there was agencies. I don't trust them. A lot of them just want your info. There were also a few MLMs scattered about. They didn't even have a map or diagram for all the places that were represented there. I shouldn't expect much since it was held in my old district.
He thought I had never been to a job fair before? What the fuck!? I've been to plenty at all the different colleges I went to.
And of course I got in trouble because my dad wandered off and couldn't find me. I hate when that happens! He blames it on me!
What the hell is a "dignitary senator" anyway? That title sounds made up. I even put it in Google with no explanation of the title. If you know what it is please leave a comment in the comments section.

Remember a unicorn without a horn is a horse. Unless it talks then it might be Mister Ed. If it's a pony with no horn or wings it might be Sweet Stuff. She is good at solving riddles. I always thought pegasi and unicorns were different races of horse. Which reminds me: buy a Sweet Stuff pony. (when I have the money) She doesn't look a lot like her animated counterpart.
Why does my dad want to work on my resume with me now? He never cared before or knew that I made one.
I really hope the Conrad Murray case doesn't get blown out of proportion like the OJ case was. The OJ case led to the cancellation of a lot of tv shows because people were just watching the case.
I watched another Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills episode. The preppy guy kind of reminds me of Chandler a little. At least they don't wear their colors you know like the nerdy guy only wears yellow clothes because the outfit he fights in is yellow. I'm trying to figure out how many sets are used in the show. So far I've seen; Drew's yard, the coffee bar, the lockers, the place where they transform, the place where the bad guy is, and where they fight.
Subgatory is a funny show. I reminds me of the 2 years I lived in a place like that. It was a little different since people drove vans back then instead. (it was the early 90s) It was funny when the girl passed by the glee club practicing, and there was a guy in a wheelchair and a cheerleader.

I've been trying to make a facebook page for my comic, but it's not going very well. I mean making the facebook page. I have a deviantart and twitter for it though. They are pretty sparse though. I might just delete the facebook page. Update: facebook page pending deletion. It's in the 14 day waiting period.
I watched all of the episode of Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills. I watched the first episode, and took some notes. After watching it the show reminds me more of Photon than Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad. It's got a bunch of loud music and slow motion scenes for no reason. At least Dic didn't waste the money on the rights to popular music of the time like they did with Photon. But when Dic made Photon they were a relatively new company. I think if I would have saw this as a kid I might have questioned the production values. It did come out when was 10. Is Drew (the blond girl) supposed to be adventurous or rebellious she was wearing a leather-like vest. The show did mix it up a bit by having an AA nerd character. He's like a mix of Billy from Power Rangers and Urkel. Dic also mixed it up a bit with SSSS by having Syd (a female) be the smart one. That was one of the things I liked about SSSS. It was the same thing with Gadget in the Rescue Rangers. I like to relate to the brainy girl character if the main group is of mixed gender. Except for Recess. I liked Gus the best. But not when the group is of the same gender like the Winx Club. Tecna is not my favorite one; it's Stella. The preppy boy is funny. He reminds me of a bit of Niles Crane, Calvin from Ghostwriter, and a character from California Dreams. The coffee bar they meet at is supposed to be like the juice bar from Power Rangers. Then I was thinking did they copy Friends? I think it is more of a coincidence since both shows premiered in the same year. The outfits they wear are totally Power Ranger knockoffs. They have a little bit of pro wrestler or American Gladiators mixed in. The masks totally are a Power Ranger knockoff with the silver lips and all. they have similar weapons. One of them has an axe and one has a lance. I don't think the show is a pure Power Rangers knockoff I think there is a little Saved by the Bell mixed in there and maybe a little bit of Photon.
I also watched a whole episode of Mona the Vampire. I still don't get this show, and I don't like it. I heard that she solves cases. I thought it was going to be like Miss Mallard which I really liked. I think Mona has supernatural powers or something like that. In the episode I saw she imprisoned a vampire in a comic book. It's funny because she calls her diary a "vampire diary". What is up with her vampire hair? I do like the theme song.
I was hoping to rewatch the Wonderful World of Oz, but I don't think that will be possible. I'll still try and record Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills. That is too much of a train wreck of a show not to watch.
Here are my colored in Benard comics. I colored them in with the crayon brush in Paint. I use to color my Benard comics in by hand with crayon. I showed the contrast between the pink and the blue bear.
Glee was ok I really liked when Will confronted Quinn,and told her to grow up. I could take a lesson from Glee. PS if anybody wants to use me in a campaign video feel free to contact me. But why was Kurt twirling daggers? It reminded me of the Ninja Turtles.
Monday, September 26, 2011
I tried to watch this cartoon called Mona the Vampire. I don't get it. Is she a kid pretending to be a vampire or a real one? I fell asleep during it. Maybe I can watch it tomorrow.
I recorded Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters From Beverly Hills. I tried to watch it, but my mom was bothering me while I was trying to watch, so maybe I'll watch it tomorrow. I watched the theme song. That's as far as I got. From what I saw it reminds me of Photon. By the pure cheesiness of it. This was made in 1994? It looks like it was made in 1987. At least Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad had the Gridman footage to fall back on which made it a lot more like Power Rangers than this show. I really hoped that UTB would have subbed Gridman. It sounded interesting. Some of the plot lines of the episodes were very similar to the ones from the US series. Here's a SSSS fun fact the exterior shot of the high school that Sam and his friends go to is a shot of Toll Junior High in Glendale California. I know because I use to go to Mark Keppel elementary which is like across the street from Toll. But when I tell people I went to Mark Keppel they think I went to the high school instead. The high school is in Alhambra.
I attempted I draw some Benard pictures just to get a feel of drawing him again. It was hard for me to replicate the crudeness. I drew the first comics before I took formal art classes. I even tried to outline one of the drawings in blue because I use to outline my Benard comics in dark blue pen because I had a lot more dark blue pens laying around than black ones.
They got a little smudged. I used gel pens. I'll post colored versions I did in paint later.
Saturday, September 24, 2011
The problem with Benard was that it was too abstract. The comic dealt with things like relevant Halloween costumes, Benard's family and other stuff. I didn't make too many Benard comics. About less than 5. The 2 I remember making was his introductory comic and Halloween. I was really close to the Halloween one I thought it was really funny.
Back when I was in 8th grade there was an announcement that the school paper was looking for a cartoonist. I bought some of my best work to show the teacher in charge of it. One of the drawings I brought was of Minnie Mouse, and the teacher said they couldn't use it because that is a copyrighted character. The teacher didn't think the Benard comic was funny. She wanted a comic that dealt with school issues.
I tried to make it work, but it was hard. Benard is preschool aged or maybe he was in Kindergarten? He was no where near junior high age. He did have an older bother who was about 10, but the comic focused on Benard.
Originally the was pink, but I changed his color to blue, so people reading it wouldn't think he was a girl. He did wear a bowtie. He had a girlfriend named Bernia. I forget how it was spelled. I even wrote a song about Benard it was set to the tune of the English Beat's "Mirror in the Bathroom". It was pretty dumb. I wrote around the time I was getting into 2 tone ska.
Here is a drawing of Benard.

My dad wants me to go to the mall and ask who is hiring. He is up to something I can feel it. I sound like Shawn Spencer. LOL XD ^-^
Maybe I should try and solve crimes instead. Too bad I don't have a grounded best friend anymore who drives a compact car. She drove a Ford. I need to buy some Mitchum and a pineapple.
Why does my dad get mad when I say places need retail experience? It's not like I can magically get some without being hired anywhere, and get a job. Stupid!
The last Price is Right clips of the week were Drew's first show, and the first playing of Any Number with Bob.
The end of All My Children was dumb. It was too Sopranos for me.
Thursday, September 22, 2011
I had this really strange Glee dream. It really made no sense at all. I hate when I have dreams that really make no sense. But it wasn't anything surreal though.
X Factor got bad ratings. I though it would have been bigger in the US. I hate all the sob stories, just get to the singing. I fell the US version is like the spiritual successor of American Idol or at least it wanted to be. Or maybe present itself as the antithesis? I think it's funny that they have the rival sponsors. AI: AT&T, Coke and Ford. XF: Verzion, Pepsi, and Chevrolet.
Maybe I'll go back to watching survivor I haven't decided.
Community was great it reminded me of something similar that happened to me. The writers must know me or something. It was funny when Abed was saddened by the ending of the British version of cougar Town. Which made me think I would not want to see an American version of Keeping Up Appearances. I'd hate to think what American Rose would be like. Elizabeth would probably be some loudmouthed lady. (Elizabeth is quite reserved) If anybody were to remake it keep the flower themed names for the sisters.
I'm having a hard time getting use to the absence of Michael Scott in The Office.
I can't get into the new Prime Suspect. It moves way too fast. I hate Jane's hat. It bothers me. There was a joke about Scotland yard. The cases are too short they are 1 episode long. It moves too fast. They use of too much American music in the scenes for no reason. The first case is different some children saw a killing there was no George and the sex dungeon. They did keep the charity boxing event, but they cut out the girly standup comedy by the men. I wish they would have kept the part about her dad recording the wrong program. She doesn't smoke.
But I have strange preferences in tv shows.
Wednesday, September 21, 2011
My dad had a hard time finding it luckily I remembered what the logo looked like from watching their commercials on UTB.
After I finished filling out my application I checked to see if there was any interesting Japanese literature. Like free publications. But there weren't any I guess there weren't because it's close to the end of the month.
On The Price is Right they showed some Drew clips to mix it up. I was getting bored of seeing the same old classic clips they showed on the 25th anniversary episode. Most of the memorable moments would likely include Bob since he hosted the show a lot longer.

My phone is finally fixed! It took them long enough!
I was working with that dismantled dress and trying to do something with it. When I tried to use it as a clown collar it looked like something from Pagliacci or a bib. I can't decide.
Glee was good. I'm still soured from season 2. It's official Sam is gone. Too bad Lauren quit the club too. I liked her badass-ness. I really wanted her to sing "Skintight" by The Donnas. Rebellious Quinn is funny. "We Got the Beat" brought back thought of mandatory high school "rallies". (At least math class was shorter on those days.) My high school marching band use to play that song. They also use to play the USC fight song. Go fig. *shrugs*. When Blane was singing Tom Jones my mom wanted to know if she heard Tom Jones. I wanted to Carlton dance. My favorite part had to be when Rachel and Kurt went to the mixer, and they realized those people were better than them. Then it made me think about the mediocre and crude "Benard" comics I use to make in junior high. I should bring those back. The crudeness in the art work has a childlike quality to it. I think I drew it when I was 11 or 12. Kurt for senior president? I hope this isn't Mary Sued out! pre-rebellious Quinn would have made a good candidate. From what I got from the episode grade wise was: Brittany, Santana, Finn, Kurt, Rachel, Quinn, and Mercedes seniors. Tina and Artie juniors.
The New Girl isn't that good. I kept feeling like I was watching a bad impersonation of Liz Lemon. Liz is believable. Jess is not, and been around a few awkward people in my life. I'm giving it one more chance. Other people are comparing her to Liz Lemon, so it's not just me.
I thought the September 11th joke in Raising Hope was a bit distasteful. I liked the part when the family seemed to recall different tv very well. Sounds like something I could do. Especially when they referenced Family Guy because that's what I was thinking.

I bought some red skirts at the dollar store for a costume. They fit little kids, but I can alter them. I might need more though to accommodate my girth.
I stained my hand by accidentally touching one of those balls that have fake blood inside them. The ones they usually sell around Halloween. Whatever they use for fake blood stains your hands.
When I called the bakery to ask about the specifics of the position. The bakery told me they filled the position. There is no need to go. Now I can stay home and watch The Office.
I was disappointed that there wasn't much of a tribute the the 40th season of The Price is Right. There were only 2 old clips with Bob. One from the first episode he hosted and the debut of Pinko. But no footage of the disco ball.
I just hope Garbage is not covering "Poker Face" "Love You Like a Love Song" "Baby"
I dismantled an old dress. A really old dress from when I was a kid. It yellowed, but I think I can do something with it. ;)

Jane lynch was a good host but not as good as Conan was when he hosted it. People say she is funnier than Lucille Ball, but I don't see it. I think Conan is funnier than Jane Lynch.
I think Modern Family is the Frasier of this decade.
Saturday, September 17, 2011
Which got me thinking when did the tradition of "spirit week" start? The traditions of dressing up and stuff like that. I asked my parents and they had no recollection of it. Just a football game, a dance and a court. (They collectively went to high school from about 1965-1975. They aren't the same age either.) Was it like the 80s? Because I remember my neighbor had a float frame the garage. Her and other high schoolers would come to her house and build it. This would have been circa 1987.
If anybody has any insight on this please leave a comment. Thanks.

My dad got a job! Maybe the good luck will rub off on me. Order was somewhat restored. He got a graveyard shift which reminded me of Everybody Hates Chris. Because that's what Julius the dad works.
I don't know why he got mad at me if I asked if he was a 1099er AKA independent contractor. Jobs that aren't 1099s are really hard to find.
Thursday, September 15, 2011
I was thinking of 30 Rock and here are some job dealbreakers to me.
Scheduling open in person interviews and posting an ad for it the day before.
Telling people it's not a 1099 (independent contractor) when it is.
Having to use your own stuff to do the job, and not getting paid for it.
Asking for 3 photos or more for a non acting or modeling job.
Not getting paid for mileage for a job that requires constant driving.
A high turnover rate.
That's a job dealbreaker!
Wednesday, September 14, 2011
I didn't really like "Up All Night" the baby in that show is really cute. The only funny parts to me was when the dad was explaining hockey to the baby and when he bought the wrong cheese.
I fell asleep during "Free Agents".

I plunked down another $3.50 on Glee merchandise. I bought the notebook on sale for half price, but why does the store have to stock the Glee school supplies next to the Glee DVDs?
I bought a pack of WWE trading cards for $1, but for some reason they smell like perfume or something. The bag didn't smell, but it did when I opened them. The cards I got were; CM Punk, Eve, John Morrison and Nikolai Volkoff.
They didn't call back for the Halloween store :( I guess being a Halloween contributor on yahoo answers doesn't count as "experience" or "qualifications".
Sunday, September 11, 2011
I got up to see what was on the tv. I couldn't stop watching it. It was addicting. I didn't know if there was school or not. When I called the attendance office I couldn't get anyone who spoke English. I went to school anyway.
When I got there I was asking around to see if anybody else knew what happened. My friend didn't know. When I went to school I was asking around about WWII and Pearl Harbor. I asked a few of my favorite former teachers if they knew what was going on. But everybody was too young to remember it. In first period we watched the news. Somebody in the class (not the teacher) insisted we watched Good Day LA. After first period I went to check on a different friend. In second period the teacher said she was aware what was going on, but we should work on our pots. (it was a ceramics class) In 3rd period we watched more footage. I procrastinated, so I needed to take my SATs soon. I was trying to fill out the form in class. Other people were telling me not to do it because all the planes were grounded and it would never make it to the place on time. This one guy in my class who was a conspiracy theorist said that America attacked itself. That guy was weird, and believed The Martix was real. He was a blowhard who had the answer for everything. I'm glad I don't see that guy anymore. I wonder why he was so popular? My French teacher didn't seem to care about it. At lunch I wasn't hungry, and I didn't feel like eating. I thought I should be nice to people. I was upset there wasn't a tv in my 6th period class. I asked the teacher what he thought about it, and how he'd rate it on a historical scale. I said I thought George W. was asking his dad for advice. Back then I use to confuse Gaddaffi with Bin Laden.
I wanted to watch Sailor Moon S on Kids' WB. I was sort of upset that I couldn't watch Sailor Moon. There was really nothing on, so I just watched old Saved by the Bell episodes. It was like the only thing on that wasn't coverage. It was the episode when Screech invents a pimple cream. I think I also watched some Sailor Moon videos.
Listening to the radio was strange. They were mostly playing Moby songs; like "Natural Blues". They said they weren't going to play songs like "Fuck Authority" by Pennywise. Loveline did a good job of covering it; like they did with Columbine.
Everything just felt dream-like.

I used my best Sailor Moon stationary to write a letter to my dead friend who was alive at the time. She said her stationary was more conservative. I had bought the stationary many years ago. (I think in 8th grade) My dad convinced me to buy it at a Hot Topic store.
I should watch the old video I made recording the episodes for nostalgic purposes.
The episodes they showed were:
Crystal Clear Again
Hello Sailor Mini Moon
People Who Need People

I was engrossed my first week of my senior year of high school. With people and their crazy hair styles. Liking and disliking who I had classes with. Struggling with math from the beginning. A computer class I didn't sign up for that my friend had, and we would joke around in. My frustration with ceramics class, and working with clay. I like to draw. People who recognized me, and I thought they didn't. I felt like the chansey in the Pokemon episode "Ignorance is Blissey". Feeling shy in my English class even though my friend was in the class.
I remember Blink-182 had a concert scheduled for the next day.

The girl standing next to me was dressed in the hippie trend. She had fringe boots that reminded me of the ones Peter wore on The Monkees tv show. She also had a matching fringe vest. Love beads would have looked nice. You dig?
I stupidly forgot my pen. I had to borrow one from the hippie dressed girl. I did bring a clip board which I was instructed to. So I said she could used my clip board in exchange for the pen. And she did.
It took such a long time! Two and a half hours long! It reminded me of the celebrity signings I went to. Except there was no reward of meeting a celebrity at the end of the line. I was so tempted to call for a pizza to deliver to me at the line. (Somebody did this when I went to Golden Apple) They were taking people in 2 by 2. And there was a huge line!
I took a seat and sat in a strange position not because I was nervous, but because my back was sore.
There were 2 managers. The first guy did not speak properly. He kept saying "ax" for "ask". The other guy looked like a rockabilly version of Jim Halpert/John Krasinski. The rockabilly guy had distinctive tattoos. Some of anime characters, but I won't name the specific characters or series. I was going to mention it in the interview, but I wasn't sure.
My "qualifications" were that I'm one of the top contributor to yahoo answers Halloween section. Plus the address I use on my resume is the one I use for yahoo answers. I make sure not to write anything too silly or offensive. For some reason they liked that especially "Rockabilly Jim" :P I do like to help and get my jollies on there. My other one was that I love Halloween.
I'm going to use opposite logic this time and say I hope "I don't get it", so that I will. The chances are slim though. They are interviewing today and tomorrow. They are giving preference to people with retail experience. I probably have no chance in hell. *cue Vince's music*.
I'm upset that the paint already wore off my Maneki Neko. One of the eyes rubbed off. I quickly repaired it by drawing it back in with a ball point pen. @o@

I finally bought a Maneki Neko. I asked the worker about every single one, and what they meant. The guide on the display was on Japanese. I don't read Japanese that well. Here is what I wrote in my phone for notes, so I would know which one to buy. "Right paw gold or calico holding coin". The are so many different kinds they sort of remind me of Catholic saint statues. Black is good luck in general. Which is the opposite view of black cats in western culture. Green is for exams. I accidentally picked up the gold one which is for job promotion. The blue one is for good health. I wanted the one that beckons cash. I have wanted to get one of these for a while. Perhaps I'll buy more.
Does anybody know what the writing on the cat says?

I don't want to sound like those "fashion experts" or anything, I noticed that when there are concerts people come in strange outfits like they are just going to a concert, and not a concert after a baseball game. This isn't a club! What if there was baseball game fashion police for all the games? Wouldn't that be funny/weird?
Later on there were some rowdy seat hoppers. Which reminded me of a Seinfeld monologue about seat hopping adults who pretend there is a problem with the ticket. Which I can't seem to find online for some reason. I forget which episode it's from; possibly "The Letter"? It was funny when some of them didn't know that they stopped serving beer at the 7th inning.
This concert was also sponsored by Power 106.
I'm happy that the telethon has been cut down in hours. I don't have to watch some lame acts like puppets. It was kind of mean how they booted out Jerry though.
