What's hot what's not

Editor's Note: I'm posting this at my blogspot page and on my myspace blog because I would like to tell everyone about what is hot and what is not, and since some of you read this and not that and visa versa you will get to read, if you so desire, this intimate look into the neurosis that is C. If you read both blogs then you are just going to have to chill, and find something cooler to do.

So I'm going to do something I used to do all the time on my merrychristmasladies page. Ok, ok, so not all the time, but on a semi regular basis. I'm going to do a what's hot and what's not list. This is a list of things that are currently hot with me, as in music I'm listening to constantly or food I'm eating or TV I'm watching. Check it out!

Hot things this week:

Getting an A on my Eng 448 midterm.
I don't really like to brag, but, actually I do. I love getting A's because for the most part I am a lame student and don't put much work into anything that I do, so when that lack of work is recognized with a good grade I feel AWESOME.

Belle And Sebastian
Ok, I know that I have talked about this band before, but hot damn. I can't get over how good they are. It's always so awesome to get back into something you were once really into but for one reason or another that obsession faded, like most obsessions do. Anyways I'm totally into the song on the album of the same name "The Boy With The Arab Strap" it's so freaking hot I could dance. That's how I know a song is hot hot hot, when it makes a lame-o dancer like me want to dance.

quitting smoking
Now this is something that is almost the kind of thing you don't want to mention because then you are bound to fail and have people make fun of you for not being successful, but I am on my way to being a non-smoker. I don't know how I really even became a smoker, seeing how I never even touched one of the cancer sticks to my lips until I was 19 (thanks e. wheeler) but nevertheless I have become slightly into cigarettes for some time now. I never reached the whole chain smoking thing, I mean, at most I probably would have like 5 cigarettes in one day, which is really nothing compared to the "pack or two a day" that those really cool smokers like John Wayne do. Anyways I had always kind of put this ceiling on my smoking, saying to myself, well, I will stop before I turn 25. Well folks, that is in April, so I thought I would get a jump start on that whole thing by trying to quit now. What better time than now to cut down on something that is slowly killing you, right? So that's hot, quitting smoking. Now if only I could manage to not think about smoking every single second of every single waking moment then I will be good.

Buying tickets to Maui
So it's confirmed in written in stone, I am going to Maui for spring break. This is awesome, because A. I've never been to Hawaii or any place even remotely tropical before and 2. Because I've never even left the continent before. Now I know that Hawaii isn't like another country or anything, but I have to travel over a large mass of water, or is it body of water? Anyways it is far far far from here. It's there. And that's cool. As much as I am afraid of flying to my certain death I think it will turn out to be really freaking awesome.

Ok, so lost was awesome this week. It was thrilling and when the counter got down to zero I about choked watching as those Egyptian glyphs flashed. The black and the red just looked so freaking menacing! It was freaking awesome. So now I wonder if anything happened because Locke got those numbers typed in late or if he got them in in the nick of time. That show is so awesome!

What's not hot this week

Dang I came up with so many things that were hot this week, what is not hot? Well...

Quitting smoking
Quitting smoking sucks. It's hard and not fun and I just want to smoke more now that I did before but I know it is good because I don't have a death wish and boy do I wish cigarettes were good for you like in that Woody Allen movie where he goes to the future and Diane Keaton is like, duh, they are good for you and if only huh? (Run on sentences rule!)

Oh boy I had a dousy yesterday. Migranes are these weird things, I'll try to explain in the case you have never had one. So it starts of with a head ache. Minor, and you are like hm, I think I'm starting to get a headache throughout my entire head, although right now its not that bad. Then it starts to get worse and worse, and within an hour or so your whole head is throbbing to the beat of pain and your neck hurts and your stomach says, hey I want to be in pain too, so it decides to make you feel so nauseous that you can't get up off your bed for fear of vomiting. Good stuff. Luckily I found some relieve in a bottle of aspirin and my migrane subsided within a few hours. Ugh. I imagine that is what dying feels like, and if so then you can count me out. Immortality is for me.

Ok, that's all I could come up with for my not hot list. Lame I know but I thought, why spread bile when I could spread smiles instead? Eh?


  1. You should buy the all new Belle & Sebastian graphic novel, Put The Book Back on the Shelf, available in finer comic book stores everywhere February 22nd! Trust me, my name's in it!


  2. Thanks for the heads up on that joe!

  3. YOU ARE FUCKING HILARIOUS! and, btw, it's e.bailey now, no longer e.wheeler. and i have photos of your first drag! ha ha! kudos on quitting, though; if it makes you feel any better, i'm starting a self-termed 'dry spell' come march 1st, also the day the IUD comes out (hmm what is SHE up to?).
    and, okay i'll say it, i'm bummed you're going to maui and not colorado. but it'll be beautiful and i can't wait to see photos!
