Another day, another totally random post

I am back at work after my four day weekend and not at all happy about it. Don't you all feel sorry for me? I didn't think so.

First of all, I feel I have to come clean and admit that the only reason I have the remarkably clear skin and small pores that the aesthetician so admired is that I have promised my first born child to my dermatologist in exchange for magical potions that cleared up the adult acne that had been hounding me for the last several years. Also I feel I should mention that while the aesthetician noted my clear skin and small pores, she also pointed out to me that my hair looked like shit and that I really ought to try to do something about it. She was one of those tough-love spa technicians. She did not tell me that my thighs are too flabby to be seen in public, but she did tell me in detail about the time a big and burly professional football player came in to have his armpits waxed. She also told all the failings and foibles of the spa owner, because, you know, that's what I was there for. She had this habit of laughing at everything I said (clearly, since I am really just that funny) and then waiting 10 seconds or so and laughing about it again. Not sure what that was about, I think either it was overkill sucking up to the client or else she laughed the first time to be polite and then laughed the second time when she got the joke. All in all, too chatty but very nice and she made me all pretty and glowy and nice, so I guess we are even.

I was going to do this whole post about how life is like the Showcase Showdown on Price is Right, but the metaphor kinda fell apart while I was drying my hair this morning and so I gave it up. However, I would like to give all of you the opportunity to step in and take over where I have so clearly failed. If anyone has any brilliant ideas about how life is like the Showcase Showdown on Price is Right please let me know, although if you do have ideas I will probably steal them because I am really dedicated to this idea and want to make it work.

Finally, I watched Gosford Park this weekend. I was not that impressed by Clive's performance. I'm going to give him another chance, but if he doesn't shape up I might have to trade him in on a newer model.

Clive looks good in the previews for the new movie Closer. Of course, maybe that's just because he spends some time yelling at Julia Roberts, and I'm not a huge Julia Roberts fan. Or it could be that he was someone OTHER than Jude Law (Vanity Fair? Had previews for 3 Jude Law movies. THREE!). But, I think that might be a good one to check out.

Don't you love it when they complement the criticize in the same paragraph? Like my boss--"Jeff your a great asset to the company, could you try and do some work now and then?" Jeez all they do is pick pick pick!

I used the wrong your. It should have been You're, sorry!

Sounds like you had a perfect day! Mcdonalds and snickers for lunch...Mmmmm.

Ok, I'm going to take a crack at this "Showcase Showdown as a metaphor for life" thing.

See, life is like The Showcase Showdown on The Price is Right because, so often, we have the choice of choosing between the safer, but not as exciting, option (i.e. the boring showcases of furniture and organs and other crap like that) and passing on it for the chance at a possibility of a much more exciting option (i.e. trips, car/boat/rv combo). However, we just end up getting screwed in the end, because we overbid and were aiming too high. And all we get, in the end, is a nice parting gift pack of Rice-a-Roni, Metamucil and Swiffer Wipes.


I can't participate in the Showcase Showdown essay thing -- mainly because I want to beat the living tar out of the person who wins and brings their whole damn family up to sit in the minivan... it drives me mad....

I think life is like Plinko actually.

Suggestion for new PCB ... Marton Csokas or Karl Urban .. they are dreamy.

Loup, she can't have Karl Urban- he's SO mine :)

Really? I really liked Clive in "Gosford Park."

Also, I have gone to the salon for non-face-related things and had the lady ask me what I wash my face with and suggest things to reduce my acne. (This is in the days of my heaviest acne, which still wasn't bad enough to leave scars, but clearly was noticeable.)

So, I'll admit I wanted to kick you a little for having the clear skin and tiny pores. But I, too, have sold my soul for clear skin, in the form of prescription topical ointments that I cannot pronounce but that I want to marry.

So, what are these magic potions. I suffer *sniff* from bouts of adult acne but maddingly I am developing wrinkles underneath the spots. Is this fair I ask? NO!
