time and stuff [07 May 2010|02:17pm]
wow. it's been a while. almost forgot about this account. where's the time gone?

this year and stuff [22 Jul 2009|02:35pm]
i am uncharacteristically super-excited about comic-con this year. i'm not sure why. but it is tempered by the fact that it will be the third year in a row that the con has sold out. i miss the days when the con was just a nerd fest. but now there's also a healthy mix of douche bags as well. it's gone a bit too hollywood. but still, it's great fun.

question and stuff [06 Jul 2009|01:34pm]
[ mood | curious ]

so, comic con '09 is just around the corner. i believe this is the 5th year i'll be attending. the annual trek started out with me going with my good friend from high school. but three years ago he opted not to go, and that relatively new tradition ended pretty quickly. it was then my intention to make the drive itself as part of the ritual. but with soaring gas prices last year, i ended up flying. so, this year i am planning to implement a new tradition; one that has little chance of changing over the years to come. i've decided that i would bring along a dvd and watch it the night before my return trip home. the only question is, which movie should i bring? should i go the complete nerd route and just bring along "the dark knight"? that's a 2.5-hour-long movie, though. and i can't imagine it'll have that much replay value after (what would be) my second viewing. for some reason i'm really leaning towards "the three amigos". i have no idea why. but it's definitely something i've already seen over and over. once yearly doesn't sound like it'll be too difficult then. you guys have any suggestions?

good-bye 2007. you were a pretty awesome year.


meet the parents and stuff [20 Dec 2007|04:22pm]
[ mood | calm ]

my future in-law's are here. it's weird having them around, but i quite like them. it's nice having a family presence for a change.

the first time i met them was last year when they flew out (from PA) for the holidays. i only saw them for a couple of hours on maybe two occassions. this year, i've seen them everyday for the past week because they're staying with us.

i think the old me would have been uncomfortable. i prefer the new me.


...and we're off! and stuff [22 Oct 2007|07:33pm]
[ mood | happy ]

so l. and i are engaged. yay! had to wait to tell my parents before i let you guys know. we'll be married some time this coming summer. cool beans.

bugs and stuff [20 Oct 2007|09:26am]
this is why the media sucks...

i work in a clinic once a week. over the last two years we've had maybe two or three patients who have had MRSA. prescribe a course of treatment, and it goes away. simple, right?

...now put this bacteria in the hands of the media, and suddenly it's called a "superbug", a term created by the press.

i'm not saying it's not a dangerous bug. but just wish the media didn't use buzzwords and dumb things down all the time.

hi! and stuff [19 Oct 2007|11:40pm]

1 out of a million and stuff [16 Aug 2007|09:18am]
[ mood | confused ]

one of the reasons i love my gf is that we both agree that some people just aren't funny. for instance: ricky gervais. this guy has not made me laugh once. what is laughable is his career. i just don't get him. to me, he's not any different from mr. bean or benny hill. maybe it's because they're all from across the pond, and i'm an obtuse american.

how i disappear and stuff [07 Aug 2007|03:41pm]
two weeks ago, l. and i went to southern california for vacation. we first stopped in los angeles to see some of her friends. the next day i went to the comic con, and l. went to the san diego zoo. on the way home the day after, we stopped and visited r. and k. (yay!). anyway, the con wasn't as fun this year. not as many people dressed up, and there were not a lot of movies being hyped (or maybe there just weren't any hype-worthy movies). click here for some pics.


so there's a pile of newspapers in front of our neighbor's door. there was an ikea catalog sitting there for the better part of two weeks that l. wanted to steal. but i convinced her not to because doing that would make us just as bad as the other tennants in this building (one of the major reasons we are moving in couple of months). anywho, i came home today to find that someone had stolen the catalog from this neighbor. i can't wait to get out of here.


in the past two months i've collected:

idiot and stuff [19 Jul 2007|03:18pm]
in honor of this article, i am coining a new word: "suxmijovi".

suxmijovi (adj.) - something that is bad, poor, pathetic, weak, awful, vomit-inducing, constipation-causing. example: jon bon jovi suxmijovi.

apparently avril lavigne is being sued over her single "girlfriend" which allegedly rips off the rubinoos' "i want to be your boyfriend".

i'm not avril fan, but this is totally bogus for the following reasons: 1) no one from avril's generation has ever heard of the rubinoos. trust me. hell, i've never heard of them before this article. 2) the two songs (whose choruses are under contention) are nothing alike. is it like apples and oranges? no. more like lemons and limes. or man and monkey. you can see similarities, but they're different enough. quite frankly, the only thing they have in common is that they both suck. 3) if you're telling me that there's some proprietary issues over using certain chords in certain progressions, you better file suit against every band on the planet. and if using the words "hey" and "you" constitutes plagiarism, merriam-webster should be suing your asses.


friday was my gf's birthday. i made her dinner (pork chops with potatoes & mushrooms), and saturday we went hiking at pt. reyes. it was an 8-mile hike over mostly flat terrain. but boy did it kill us afterwards. good times, though.

xx and xy and stuff [29 Jun 2007|10:34am]

confession time:

i told my gf recently that i have no desire to have any guy friends. i do have a couple and thank god for that because they really compliment aspects of my life that i don't ordinarily share with anyone else (i.e., playing music, comicbooks, etc.). but i hate meeting guys. i fear -- i dread -- being trapped in a typical male conversation about cars, sports, video games, and (ta-da!) women. hey, i love women. but i don't like talking about them. at least not in the way that most guys talk about them. it makes me uncomfortable. i feel like steve carell from 40-year-old virgin. i find it infinitely easier hanging out with girls. whenever i go to a party, invariably i would end up hanging out with the ladies while the men sit outside smoking cigars talking about torque or whatever. i prefer talking about cooking, celebrity gossip, animals, and (ta-da!) men. it's always fun to see a woman's pov re: their beau. in fact, you learn a lot about what not to do wink wink. (and here is my disclaimer: i am not purposely pigeon-holing certain types of conversations with specific sexes. but from my experience, this has been the case.) oftentimes conversations do drift towards cars and sports. but in those instances we generally share the same opinion: who cares? for those of you who know me, i have no compunction of being perceived as "effeminate" or even gay. in fact, sometimes i wish i was gay. in a way it would make things easier. the trouble i find is that most girls are suspicious of men who try to make their acquaintance. so no matter how platonic my motives, i am always met with a certain level of caution. which i understand, but still it is sad. and no i don't have any fantasies as being treated as one of the girls and being invited into dressing rooms as they try out lingerie. ok, maybe one or two. but i'd be just as happy baking cookies with you.
