dreaming a reality



If I was to listen to one Calexico album, which one would you recommend?

Please advise.

meme out of boredom

Blame bdu for this.

If your life was a movie, what would the soundtrack be?

So, here's how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don't lie (I swear I adhered to this)

South First Fridays

This is happening downtown tomorrow. If anyone goes, gimme a ping.

It's been a month since I last posted and I can't really think of anything very exciting to share with all of you. I just scarfed down some of the best (vegetarian) enchiladas but, for today, my excitement pretty much stops there.

Work is getting better, or rather I'm getting more comfortable but I'm still pretty stressed out because there's so much to learn and so much to do.

A sullen, overworked Jessica.

Play catch-up.Collapse )

I still have to post photos of Cancun, eep.

Jun. 25th, 2008

I am testing out this ping.fm stuffs. How does everyone else like it?

oh hai

Internet fatigue isn't really a fatigue. It has turned into a full blown "I don't give a shit; I'm too busy." However, I recently started using Plurk and I'm not sure what the appeal is yet. It's like Twitter, but has the ability to have mini chatrooms and to gain karma points. The more you use it, the more points you get. I like level-ing, so we'll see how long it'll be before I get bored.

Oh, Cancun. Nothing of note to report. The wedding was on the beach and on the nicest day we had there (it was overcast on other days). I decided to test myself and failed. Snorkeling sounded like a good idea; I had never gone before and it was practically free at the resort. The bobbing of the boat made me feel pretty queasy and once I was in the water, I just got thrashed around from the waves.

I tried to Keep Things Under Control, but finally gave in and vomited while I was bopping around the water. No one saw me, I think, and I just kept swimming. Some other woman threw up over the side of the boat on the ride back, so I felt slightly better about my spewing.

Oh, I did see a nurse shark (about 4 or 5 feet in length), a turtle, and a barracuda. Others saw a sting ray, but I was probably busy trying not vom.

I, of course, have a million photos to share, so if you're too lazy to go look at my Flickr yourself, I'll be posting my favorites later. I'll also do a private post on how I feel about my job.
I've been at my new job for about 3 weeks and, so far, I'm liking it. The whole 8 to 5 thing is killing me a little bit, because I often go to sleep around 2 in the morning. What is the new job? I handle the legal stuffs and things at a debt collection agency.

Oh, and I have a new car as well! No pictures of my bright blue Honda Fit, but I'm sure you guys know how to use Google.

I think my lust for the internet is finally fading; after 13 years of constant, grueling obsession, I'm no longer shackled to my laptop. It's so strange, and I often feel like I'm cheating on the internet with real life. I suppose my priorities have changed and the whole waking up thing really cramps my style. I pretty much go to work, clean, do laundry, sleep, and eat dinner with Eric.

I still Flickr and read my LJ friend page, but beyond that I don't do much else. I am thinking of quitting Twitter or, at the very least, cutting down my list of people I follow to people I actually see once a week. This is all so confusing, much like puberty. All these questions are popping up. How will I know what's going if I don't read my feeds? How many internet memes will pass me by? How will I know about new cool (web 2.0) things before the masses?

Now for a photo dump.

I've had a paid account for a very long time. Today it expired and I'm not even sure what I'm missing out on, except the ability to post polls (which I do like). Oh internet, it's been such a long time...

Super busy with the new job. I'll hopefully post more informative posts soon about that and life in general, but I need to get back to work.

Hmm, to pay or not to pay.

I still read my friends page!

feet on the ground

Three songs are stuck in my head today: Talking Head's "This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)," Pet Shop Boys' "Love Comes Quickly," and Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams." I am remedying the situation by listening them to repeat until I feel satiated.

I finally stole photos off Chris' camera to post to Flickr. Lots and lots of post processing when it comes to pictures taken on a point and shoot; I think I went a little hogwild with the curves, but I've always been one for lots of contrast in my photos.

Photos!Collapse )

Now, I go off to suffer from my allergies.
