Pumpkin Kutter

I have some screen caps from the old pumpkin kutter commercial. Which is also circa 1988. I begged my parents to buy me one. That thing didn't work. A kitchen knife cut better than that thing. Even if it was for children to use. As the commercial says: "It's great for kids' because it doesn't have any sharp edges." And it rusted few years later. Here is a link to an older version of the commercial. It appears to be from the early to mid 80s. I don't recall seeing it on tv back in the day. Last year I posted screen caps from the Pumpkin Light commercial.

The Price is Right had a funny 1970s theme episode. Drew had a "porn stache" and he was wearing platform shoes. Was that a nod at the show being brought back in the 1970s? At least they used some old music ques. All the audiences' and I guess cast members' costumes were provided by Party City. It would have been funny if Drew had worn one of those old 70s style suits Bob wore with the wide lapels. (which was the style at the time) At least there was not a tank top incident. I wonder what an 80s themed show would look like? I would hope the models wouldn't wear like tutus or something like that. It would be really funny if they wore pantsuits with really big shoulder pads.

I didn't do much this year and I didn't get to put my 90s girl costume to good use. Oh well.

I gotta stop watching those Psych marathons on Ion. I had a strange Psych dream. Somebody was killing senior citizens on a women's basketball team. They were leaving strange notes that were written in algebraic equations. Shawn and I could not figure them out, but Gus could. After the women were murdered the murder would leave a homemade rag doll as a calling card. In the dream I was some kind of stuffed animal expert and Juliet needed my help.Lassiter was trigger happy as always.

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

No McRibs!? WTF!?

Ok so that place I went to where the manager wasn't there was a McDonalds.

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!

Why can't I learn?

I found a Denver mint penny, a lucky Denver mint. (don't say you didn't see it coming) When I was younger I interpreted that the song was about somebody being better than you, and you just have to accept it. I'm not really sure what the song is about? Does anybody know? I mean like a story from the band or something. Not what those people posted on songmeanings. I was gonna screencap the video, but I decided not to.

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.

It's a Keyper

I found a treasure in the garage a Keyper! A baby one. Baby Poke.

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!

Cover Your Lying Ass

When I call back the place on Friday. I was too busy to do it on Thursday. The person who was supposed to interview me "claims" they were there. Either that person was lying or the other employees were. Current employees don't want a strange threatening new person coming in. (not that I look threatening)

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!

Your worst inhibition's tend to psych you out in the end

The title is from the Psych theme song, but the entry has nothing to do with Psych.

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.

Candy Pants

I saw a segment on the news about saving money for Halloween. Most of the stuff they said is the same stuff I say like buy only accessories to make a costume with regular clothes like buying devil accessories to go with red clothes. To buy Halloween things at the dollar store. One of the things they said was really stupid. They said to buy you candy on Halloween day, and to get any kind. According to them the kids don’t care about the candy. Huh?! When did kids not care about candy on Halloween? Kids always complain about what they get. Especially if the candy is not name brand. I hated getting cheap candy. Like those strawberry candies or Tomy candy. They said it didn’t matter if you didn’t even like the candy you bought. I might buy candy I don’t like if I knew somebody else I knew liked it. I don’t like Butterfingers, but I would buy a bag of them and give them to my dad. So if it was leftover I could give it to him. I want good leftover candy I would eat.

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.

Shockingly Real!

J-Pop America Fun Time Now was a great skit! It reminded me of people I've met. Actually there was a real similar local tv show I saw like this. The connection was uncanny. It reminded me of some people I took Japanese class with. I should post those old blogs in the archives. They referenced Candy Candy which is a real anime title. I've never seen it, but I know it's real. Plus one of the characters was dressed in a sailor fuku (uniform). It was Sailor Moon looking (red bow, blue skirt, red shoes)

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.

Hello "Sexy" Kitty!

I think my slutty Hello Kitty costume idea was used. It was mentioned in this blog. (please notify me if the pictures are not to be used. In that other blog)

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.

Commitment to Lack of Technology Skills

Al Davis died and of course my dad was sad about it. I think my dad wanted me to leave the house for some reason. Possible for him to mourn?

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?

I Can Smell Rejection from a Mile Away

I didn't get the job, but I thought I wasn't since I didn't get a call by Wednesday

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.

For him to Poop on!

Conan was on Fallon. I thought he was blacklisted by NBC as a whole? Like Conan doesn't exist to them. He picked up the Triumph puppet. His old studio wasn't Fallon's, but the one used for Dr. Oz.

Since Steve Jobs died the hipsters are sad. I should wear a really tacky outfit to commemorate his death. Damn I don't have any printed scarves or loafers.

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.

I'm just a Sucker with no Self Esteem

Emma’s parents reminded me of my blond obsessed grandma. Preserving the red. Parental stress can drive any child to a “quirk”. I know when my dad pissed me off I do my quirk. It reminded me of this old self esteem quiz that I read in a magazine back when I was in high school that said you had low self esteem if you are embarrassed of your parents. Stupid magazine quiz! Look at this girl she exudes self esteem!

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.

I'm sick! I'm so upset! I think it's because I rode the bus on Friday and I haven't ridden the bus in a while, so I haven't built up a "bus immunity". I wonder how easy it is to get sick while riding the bus? Somebody should to a study on that.

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.

All By Myself

I really want to move away from my parents. It's a tier 2 level on my bucket list. I thought about it all by myself. I sound like a little kid who is trying to sound grown up or something. I'm off to put an oversized coat and some oversized high heels. I don't want any other family members meddling in this. This is between me and my parents, and they are cool with it. As a reward I'm going to buy myself a Sky Rocket pony, and a Lime Chiffon doll.

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)
