let my memory be the reason

work today was such a mess...
and we had a company wide meeting - means all of us "crammed" into one office...
of course, there's only... 15 of us left in the entire place.

mcrough came by last night for a bit - originally he was supposed to be my ride home, but my truck (yay~) is back!
so he stopped by and we lounged about for a bit before he had to head back to work
then beanakin came by for a bit... we caught a frog, that I named mortimer (or I would have, if beanakin had supplied me with toad's real name)... I put him in one of my old hamster cages... but the beast didn't want to be caged.
he kept hopping into the sides... so I finally gave in and let him back out.
I think a cat ate him, though. so I'm sad.
rip mr toad

lus & I are supposed to be having dinner... but he's still not called.
he's got 'till 19 and then I'm calling him

his life's ambition

::: posted by tinafish at 8:40 PM :::

speaking of lemmings

so I had a pretty awesome weekend...
I already told you about my wonderful vomit-filled saturday...
and monday during the day sarah, my sis, and I went to see x3...
what have I not mentioned?

my brother was in town this weekend...
he saw a pic of me & him on my drawers by my bed...
and now he thinks I like him.

beanakin & I hung out last night... the fucker is about through with god of war.
sitting there watching him play it really emphasizes exactly how bad my jumping skills are.
but we all knew they were bad already, I guess.
we also played a bit of xmen legends (the first one)... and we're roaming about doing I dunno what...
when suddenly the floor drops out from underneath us...
okokok we jumped off a cliff
/me blushes
and he doesn't have a memory card! and instead of the game saying "restart from last checkpoint" it said "load game" but we couldn't!
(I was quite devastated, I assure you)

I talked to BoB for a while earlier, as well as both slave & lus.
think lus & I are gonna hang out tomorrow for dinner... we're both leaning towards dinner at the pour house, but I wouldn't mind that one little buffet place with the banana pudding. it feels like I don't see him anymore, and really I don't - not near as often as I used to, anyway.
and I'd not talked to slave in about a month.... it's nice (and kind of annoying) to realize I did miss him.
I hadn't realized how much my friends mean to me.

sarah & mcrough agst me & beanakin.
and beanakin & I went from having a 100+ pt lead...
to losing!

and this second game we've been playing... omg...
it's been really close...
235 to 240
(game's to 250)
I scored 5 points...
then mcrough didn't score...
and then beanakin whipped out a 6 for 10 points
and we won!

lay my hands on heaven and the sun and the moon and the stars

I'm sure you know what myspace is.
and I'm sure you know I have a video folder... full of - videos.
well I was checking my site stats ('cause I do that periodically) and I noticed someone was linking to my salad fingres vid.
I go to the myspace page... it's some chick I don't know... and some d00d I don't know left her a comment linking to my vid.
I decided to redirect swf's to a rather... gross... image... of a man with a bottle in his bum.
and that really is the highlight of my day.

I'm supposed to get together with mcrough this evening... we're gonna do the whole meet&greet then head out for a movie.
I dunno... he seems nice enough...
and I talked to him on the phone for a bit yesterday evening (while playing dominoes - I beat berto by 100 pts, btw) and that was fun.
we have an absurd amt of things in common, though. and while that's super awesome I don't especially want to hang out with a yes-man, ya know? not that he's not being honest... just so far the only real difference btwn us (aside from age & gender - and really we're only a few months apart) is that I hate cheesecake.
we had this conv earlier... usually I say something like "may I ask you a personal question?" before I bring up religion, but I didn't. and it turned into another thing we have in common. well, not the beliefs themselves, but our approach to the idea.
and I'm really afraid he won't like me. I see a lot of myself in him... like he's who I'd be if I was a guy... does that make any sense? and I'm afraid he won't think I'm good enough? ok now that bit doesn't make sense at all.
gawd. I've got to stop fussing about this.

I'm still coughing. not nearly as bad, though.
and I'm still carless, and I do believe it's going to kill me.
I'm out of cough drops and I can't go buy any...
javi-er's supposedly gonna skip work to give me a ride.
and I've got these cookies - they're just sugar cookies with chocolate chips... kinda gross.

won't you be my passing legal pad?

ok so you know how I never finished god of war?
well, I finished it last night.
not alone, mind you... oh no. my jumping skills are no where near what they'd need to be for me to finish the game on my own.

I spent the evening with beanakin, and I made a startling discovery.
(and yeah.... I know this is dumb... and I probably already should have known this, but in my defense I don't eat tater tots often)
tater tots are bits of potatoes clumped together.
now I know what you're thinking... and yes, I've always known it's not just a clever name... but I always thought they were mashed potatoes clumped together, not.... chunks of potatoes clumped together.

anyhow... we had tater tot casserole for dinner...
played some tmnt, then some tekken, then some mkda, and then a lot of god of war.
I still haven't gotten past those stupid ugly big green dogs.... well, on normal mode.
on easy we finished it up. we got past all these crazy jumping things... well, really, he'd get past 'em. I'd try a couple of times and fall to my death. then he'd take over and get us to the next checkpoint.
I love watching people play that game. like... really I think sometimes I like watching it being played more than I like playing it.
before we knew it the sun was up and the clock read 0600. it's super awesome to hang out with someone else who prefers nights; for once in the last 2 or 3 years I wasn't the one just coming alive when the other person's starting to fade off.

so I got to bed ~ 07 or so... and my dad shows up at 0830 to take my truck to the shop...
so now I'm relying on hitchhiking for the rest of the week.
and my tongue feels weird. not numb, really... just... I dunno... the top half is like.. super sensitive or something... and the bottom half isn't... and I think I scraped the roof of my mouth with a cough drop last night.
and my tongue is super red. like... bright red from the cough drops. and I think it's gonna stay that way for a while.

oh and the collector's edition of the boondock saints is out now.
I want it.

the paper ninjas are coming

due to the obscene amt of cough drops I've been... consuming... my tongue is this wicked shade of red.

I really should clean my room.
I need to do my dishes... sweep & mop... throw my garbage... buy a router... move the extra monitors out of the way... make my bed... omfg there's a zillion things I need to do.
am I going to?
but right this moment I think I'm gonna head over to beanakin's for some tmnt.

and you know, skype is awesome.
except I hate how people I don't know call.

I've got lots of stuff I'd like to talk about, but I can't really think of anything to say.
does that ever happen to you?
it happens to me all the time.
/me shrug

I'm still coughing... and I think I'm gonna try to see my doc tomorrow.
this is gonna be tricky, since I think my truck's going to be in the shop starting tomorrow... for the rest of the week, I think.
irbyface has offered (really I think I kinda guilted him into offering, but still) to be my cabbie, but I'm not sure if that'll extend to early morning doctor visits.

I've still not gotten an email acct set up w/ sbc...
I really need to do that.
I guess when it comes down to it I could just call them...
but you know how uncomfortable I get when talking to people I don't know.
I think, if I've still not borrowed a pc from anyone, I'm gonna call sbc tomorrow.

I've met some pretty interesting fellas lately...
I'm not sure if I mentioned it or not, but I've mostly decided I'd like an SO again.
so I've been out a few times... met this pretty awesome guy named beanakin... he's got this bumper sticker that says "porn: it's cheaper than dating"
and I met a guy through tooter, who is decidely un-like anyone I thought I'd ever meet through tooter. lol - says he's not really friends with tooter, so much as someone he just chats with when bored at work. and mcrough (yes, I've christened him mcrough... sounded good in my head, I guess) is super cool too - particularly his aversion to wrestling rabid bears.
I also had my first official date with irbyface. he's got a macbook pro, and that thing is super awesome. that alone raises his sexxxy factor by at least 3 levels.... haha... he's fun, though.
and there's nazifab, whom I've grown to love... but I don't see anything good coming from that... I mean, it's cool that he lives out in bfe, but I dunno. he reminds me a lot of my friend scaggs... and I've not yet decided if that's good or bad.
I guess when it comes down to it I'm still not entirely sure I wanna get committed to anyone... guess that I even chose to use "committed" shows what I think of rltnships...
/me sigh

sarah lent me a couple of movies last week, so I watched lost in translation & eternal sunshine of the spotless mind last night...
lost in translation... was... well... depressing? I mean... it reminded me a lot... of... stuff.
I dunno... I can't tell if I like it or not... guess I'll let you know if I ever figure it out.
and eternal sunshine is still as wonderful as evAR~ seriously I love that movie & have been wanting to see it again for so long.
now that, gentle reader, is ~the~ love story.
and I do wish I was more like her... I never can tell if someone's like... interested in me... and it'd be fun to just assume someone is.
well, untill I turned out to be completely wrong.

and now, of course, my ffx update:
thank god for turn based fighting; my battle with yunalesca was quite literally an hour long... I had to take an ice cream break! and I swear I used about 20 pheonix downs and about 35 holy waters... but I did take her down. and on the first try too~ I'm really glad I was roaming about trying to get yuna to learn 'full cure,' otherwise I'd have never stolen so many holy waters or phoenix downs.
what else?
I got all the aeons, and I got both the uh... upgrades for yuna's ultimate weapon, so that's super awesome. double ap, no damage cap, and 1 mp for all spells! I'm pretty stoked about that. I also got lulu's ultimate weapon, but for one of her upgrades I've gotta dodge 200 lightning bolts in a row. so far I've made it to... 17.
I also started playing blitzball... how I hate it... and yet, if I hadn't lost every. single. game. I'm sure I'd love it.
I also spent about 3 hours roaming about looking for a place to stick auron's rusty sword (wow that sounds bad, doesn't it?) before I finally found the right statue [to stick it in - haha]... I was/am super stoked about that, and it's definetly the highlight of my weekend.
and back to blitzball - I'm not sure why wakka isn't playing, ya know? I mean, he's a fucking blitzball player - his weapons are blitzballs... but beanakin lent me his ffx strategy guide and I've just now learned you can recruit him! last night I also went back to the boat and learned the 'jecht shot'... so hopefully my blitzball game will improve sometime soon.
and I totally cheated and used the strategy guide to find rikku's ultimate weapon, but mostly that was 'cause I was trying to find the statue for auron's ultimate weapon. and I brought the guide with me to work, to read up on it while I'm here.
oh wow. I'm such a nerd.

/me cough cough
ugh. another weekend. another illness.
/me cough
my throat's sore.
/me cough cough cough
and I can't stop coughing.

saturday I hung out with nazifab & shea... and I did hurl obscenities at both of them.
we played some soul cal... and I got beaten every time I played.
we didn't get around to playing tekken, so I'm just gonna go with me-sucking-at-soul-calibur instead of the always unattractive me-sucking-at-fighting-games-in-general.
and I made them sit through a bit of eddie izzard - they're just kids and didn't get hardly any of the references...
and what else?

sunday evening javi-er came by wanting chicken fried steak.
so I showered & we headed to the pour house.
turns out the kitchen's closed on sundays...
we'd invited irbyface & lus... irby didn't show, but lus did.
I tried to buy lus a happy graduation shot, but he's sobered up.
so I toasted him by myself.
his bday's this weekend... I've gotta think of something cool to get him.

I talked to the ever popular sam rol ken last night...
using skype. it was kinda weird to hear him after all these years... not at all how I remember him sounding... he's got a pretty sexxxy voice.
and I can say that with no worries because we discussed last night how he never reads my blog.
seriously though he does sound a lot older... and not as... country?... as I remember him sounding.

and now for an ffx update.
I got yojimbo last night all by myself.
and let me tell you.... I spent ~ 250,000 gil to get that fella to join my party... and apparently you hafta pay him to participate in battles!
not only do you hafta summon him, but you hafta pay him gil to attack whoever you're fighting! and you don't get to pick what he attacks with! you just pay him and he chooses based on how much you pay!
I think I'm gonna stick with bahemut for now.
... since I have no money to see what yojimbo's attacks are... I spent all my money befriending him...

my quintessential

so I couldn't sleep last night
laid in bed for a few hours and then my alarm went off
I rolled out of bed, and slammed my foot into tina's and javier's tree climbing center block "brick", which I just happen to keep by my bed.
great start, eh?

on my way out the door I stopped by my fridge (like I always do) to make a sandwhich to take with me to work.
2 slices of bread - put the turkey & the cheese on one slice, then squeeze mayo out onto the second slice.
in the process of closing the mayo bottle...
I drop the mayo covered slice on the floor.
so my little door entrance mat thingy got mayo all over it, plus some on me.
change into sweats & throw my mat out into the back yard.

get to work...
forget my name, lost the 'w' key, and forgot how to spell 'ping' within the first half of my shift.
adrian came by to do something... says "nice dent" to me.
I'm like "wtf?"
half an hour before my shift is up I remember him saying that...
and yeah. someone hit my truck.
I think the driver's side bed panel's gonna need to be replaced.
but I mostly just laughed... 'cause I mean, I totally wouldn't have noticed it if he hadn't said anything.

so I get home from work...
kind of a bad day so far, ya know?
decide maybe gardening would make me feel better....
there's a little ant community (really rather large, imo) right where I decided to plant my roses.

I will teach fear

I finally heard back from nazifab today... I was almost afraid he didn't like me at all after meeting me irl...
I try not to really fuss for at least a week after meeting up with someone...
but we'd talked so much so often that it felt like it'd been a lot longer than just a couple of days.
he's a good kid, and I totally wanna play tekken & soul cal with him.
isn't that horrible of me? I'm gonna make the guy drive in from bfe just so I can hurl obscenities at him while we game.

speaking of gaming.. I was totally thinking me & javi-er were supposed to game, watch the boondock saints, and have tacos tomorrow.
but nope. still no resurrection of taco friday.
and lus is graduating sometime soon... but I'm not exactly sure when.... that makes me a horrible friend, doesn't it.

what I need is a nickname

but I can't seem to think of one.
and I mean... I nickname pretty much everyone.
let's see...
he drinks a lot, but I wouldn't wanna call him a drunk...
oi~. here's a nifty idea.
I could call him what his friends call him.
and there we go - he shall be known as nazifab here too.

so monday evening I met up with nazifab and a couple of his friends at copper...
we played some air hockey (I do believe it was a self-fulfilling prophecy) and a few games of pool.
I did horrible at air hockey - I was still kinda sick and everything was super lagged for me... I think he let me win, or at least he was trying to... I don't remember which one of us won.
we teamed up to play pool.... he & I won all 4 games.... sheer luck, imo.
I also saw a couple of the guys I work with there... lol... worth mentioning since they didn't show up to work yesterday.
after dinner & a few games we went to the theatre... decided on watching an american haunting.... we were about an hour early so we played some pinball (it seems tinseltown's got the elvis pinball machine now) and then sat on my tailgate for a bit of a smoke break.
the movie wasn't bad... 'till the end....

after the movie I went up to the hospital.
showed up with some tomatoes and just hung around up there for a few hours.
it was nice. I hadn't really done that since before adrian & I split up.
then I went home and played ffx for a couple of hours.
I promise I spent about an hour roaming around the calm lands looking for an ogre. I had at least 4 of all the other fiends, but that ogre was just avoiding me! when I was finally just giving up and decided to continue on he showed up.
so I finally captured them all, saved, and then decided to fight the hybrid... and got killed.
and I'm not sure what's going on, but I want to play halo. like... I want to play halo right this moment.
so I guess when I get home this afternoon I'll put that on instead of ffx.

javi-er and I were supposed to go to the park last night... but due to "miscommunication" he never showed up.
so I sat in the backyard for a few while... and then fell asleep on the couch. again.
/me sigh
my back hurts.

crazy little flip

I talked to r00 last night... that d00d is so awesome, ya know?
I feel really lucky to know him and have him as an active part of my life.
I dunno... he's always so upbeat about stuff... well, maybe not upbeat... but... I dunno. makes me feel better?
ok I'm sorry I know I'm not making much sense... in my defense I just ate an entire bag of carrots and I'm ~really~ wishing I hadn't.
like I was saying...
I talked to r00 last night.
I'd put in for some time off to go back home... requested from this wednesday to next wednesday off...
as luck would have it r00's in the states right now, and it would've been awesome to get to hang out with him.
unfortunately, since we're so short staffed, I didn't get the time off.
it hits me sometimes... that I've only ever met up with him irl... maybe... 3 times, I think. it just seems weird sometimes, to sit down and say that... I mean, I talk to him online mostly every day.
and I do consider him one of my closest friends.
isn't that cool?
I mean... I dunno.
I just think he's super awesome. totally... un-judging. um... like... ya know?

los tigres del norte (DF & I often joke that King, a tekken character that wears a jaguar mask, is a bandmember)
Los Tigres del Norte

the ever popular bobby pulido
Bobby Pulido

tooter's favorite - la tropa f
La Tropa F

la mafia (though itunes doesn't have our favorite song - un millón de rosas)
La Mafia

gary hobbs (my brother, in true mexican fashion, toured with this guy)
Gary Hobbs

intocable (the name means 'untouchable' which caused quite a fuss when 2 of the members died in a car accident)

incidently, today is also no pants day... which I think is kinda fun.

hush puppy with a lisp

whenever I have nightmares, the sexxxy brit is usually the first person I turn to.
I'll roll over, pull up a chat window, and bitch about my dream.
and I had this horrible nightmare last night...
slept about an hour then woke up freaking out...
something about milkdud... milkdud's sister... some random person named tidus... and ethernet cables everywhere were turning into snakes!
the goo on the inside of the cables was really the venom of those snakes...
and if you screamed they got inside your mouth and could control you...
I dunno... I was freaking out... think maybe it wasn't cold enough in my room?
so I stumble out of bed over to the couch, in a desperate attempt to wake up enough to go back to sleep and dream about something else...
anyhow... I plop down on the couch and raise the lighting on my monitor.
and rob was online.

see, the thing is, the little brit's on holiday in thailand.
it was so awesome to talk to him, though - to hear about his trip and all...
and fuss about my dream.
after about 20 mins I was good (or I thought I was, anyway) to head back to bed, and he went back to enjoying his vacation.
I love that kid.

if only I had a robe and wizard hat

sarah & I went to the pour house tonight, to celebrated her 5 year anniversary... of being at the same job.
seriously though, we did go out, and I had an awesome time!
think the only bad part was when we took a shot of tequila (it would seem tuesdays are $3 cuervo) and um... I mostly gagged. and it gave me goosebumps.
don't think I'll be trying that again.
not dressed, anyway.
other than that it was great fun, as hitting the pour house with good company always is.
the size of the parking lot's been greatly reduced, due to the construction of... that freeway that'll be coming through lubbock... I think it's gonna be called the marsha sharp freeway, but I can't be sure (think the last time I watched the news was... over a year ago, and I seem to remember someone pitching a fit about it being named that... but I'm not sure how all that turned out).
anyhow, parking is reduced to just a few (5 to 10, maybe a few more) spots on either side of the building, and uncovered parking spaces in a nearby apartment complex.
sarah & I totally thought the bar would be dead, not only because it's a weekday, the awful construction zone, but now also the diminished parking area.
but really... think the place was more packed tonight than the last time I went in on a saturday.

after closing we went back to sarah's to watch garden state.
now, that movie's been in my queue for at least 6 months, but it's still nowhere near being seen.
omg! I had no idea what an awesome movie it is!
I'm seriously considering buying it - or at least moving it up in my queue and getting my sis to watch it with me...
and I should totally go to bed since I hafta get up in 4 hours to go to work...
wish me luck!

but you're still alive

so I think it's kinda funny, that not a week after I decided to... block out both my david & BoB... I see my david in real life.
just really, I mean, I've not seen him since we split up.
/me shaking head

I miss the weekend.
got to sleep in 'till 6pm yesterday...
had starbucks ice cream for brkfst
while playing ffx for about 10 hours.
only to sleep an hour before heading into work this morning.
I hate working days - have I ever mentioned that before?
dunno, but just to be safe (and for good measure)~
oh how I hate working days.

and now a psa:
the sbc yahoo dsl install disk is shit.
seriously - it totally froze up halfway through the install...
none of the buttons loaded up and it stopped responding
it froze literally the screen after the one where I signed up for a username & password.
so if this happens to you, just log into the freaking modem and set it up yourself.
