what a weekend to be had

Great weekend as always.
Update:

+did nothing

+played lots of tennis

+ate lots of good food (hot cheetos, lindt's wafer milk chocolate, ramen + gyozas, home cooked lemon chicken with wild rice at beau's house)

+ i am glad i didn't decide against going to purple's, this hip happening wine bar in downtown seattle near pike's. It was so classy and sophiscated in there i felt out of place, as a broke hobbo uw college student. but i didn't have to pay to drink a mere 30 bottle of wine (crazy!). i cant believe how expensive it is to have to pay 58 dollars for a saint emilion's red wine. i only had to pay 5 euros when i was in france!! it was a fun night with a personable group of friends. I met lots of new people. I drank so much wine, and prior to going, i warmed my stomach with a nice toasty glass of rose, a light fruit red wine at gavin's house. some cheese and bread as well. Yummy! I had so much fun at purple's. just slightly buzzed in a grandiose room of light candleligths and filled with laughters.

+again, on my slightly drunken fested night, i managed to wake up at the crack of dawn while everybody is passed out or nursing their hangovers. how do i ever manage to pull this off i don't know!!!

+oh, gavin, me and some of his friends also went to purple dots after purple's (note the reoccuring theme). I only had a milk ice tea and i had a feeling that was about to do me in, as i felt my stomach merely gurgling, twisting in all kinds of ways and i knew it was about time to stop my liquid consumption for the evening or morning for that matter. i couldn't believe how many people were there at 2 in the morning! its like an asian IHOP.

+SO, i am trying to figure out my graduation presents as my parents and relatives are so gentily letting me choose. I have no idea. they thought of jewerlry, expensive handbags, but none of them striked a cord with me. i played with the idea of getting a blackberry but thats stupid. but i think i know what i finally want for the grandiose present that i so well deserved after 18 years of schooling. A 15 inch 2.33 ghz MACPRO! holla! Its so shchazzzbamming. And a NYC trip this summer. My best friend michelle got accepted to ROchester institute of technology for grad school and i believe she is flying into nyc before heading to seattle, so we might take a trip together and i will shop it out, and also visit the great apple the way it is meant to be seen!!!! this is my second time to NYC but i didn't really do much on my first trip...so nyc here i come!!!

jolie holland, a gem

there is nothing i want to do more right now than listen to jolie holland.
did i mention she is exquisite? her "old fashioned morphine" and "amen", "faded coat of blue" and poor girls blues" are my favorites. her album is great! i love her lyrics, her voice...
she is a blues, acoustic, guitar, neo folk singer who hails from texas. http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:avfwxq90ldke~T00
one of her albums include escondia. she is also part of the music group be The Be Good Tanyas.

Mad tom of bedlam:

For to see Mad Tom of Bedlam,
Ten thousand miles I've travelled.
Mad Maudlin goes on dirty toes,
For to save her shoes from gravel

Chorus

Still I sing bonney boys, Bonney mad boys,
Bedlam boys are bonney,
For they all go bare, and they live by the air,
And they want no drink nor money.

I went down to Satan's Kitchen
For to get me food one morning
And there I got souls piping hot
All on the spit a-turning

There I took up a cauldron
Where boiled ten thousand harlots
Though full of flame I drank the same
To the health of all such varlets

My staff has murdered giants
My bag a long knife carries
To cut mince pies from children's thighs,
And feed them to the faeries

The spirits white as lightening
Will on my travels guide me
The stars would shake and the moon would quake
Whenever they espied me

And when that I'll be murdering
The man in the moon to a powder
His staff I'll break and his dog I'll shake
And there'll howl no demon louder

For to see Mad Tom of Bedlam,
Ten thousand miles I've travelled.
Mad Maudlin goes on dirty toes,
For to save her shoes from gravel

the hottest day of spring

and what do i decide to do? stay inside! well it's not by choice. I had to go home and not strip naked on the quad as much as i love to. if its 78 degrees now, can you imagine how hot it will be in the summer! kawabunga! anyways i am not that jealous to all those who get to be baked on the beach, by poolside or in the infamous quad, because i get to listen to good music at home, and write my resume for applying jobs late july. I am looking forward to things, such as new office episode that i promise i won't miss this time (unable to download from itunes because of lack of hardrive space), shear genius tmr. although for some reason i am affected by my friends departure, i have many things to look foward to. its just, they won't be here, part of my life here in the states. its a part of life where people move on and do their own thing. part of it makes me sad. part of it comforts me. of course i am happy for them too. i am just dealing with my own distresses, among many other distresses that's overcoming me now. today the sun is out, and hotter than ever. i've hit my own milestone where i realized i am changing my agendas and my attitude on life. for better or for worst :)

nevermind

i revert back to my hommage to pugs. i think i want one when i move out. no, i am getting one when i move out. (!!)

i woke up early this morning in attempts to "study" for my midterm. and i am avoiding studying for my midterm and praying that the test will go okay. but really how do you study films? teehee. my last midterm of my academic life! ah! my method has always been to wing it. i mean if you pay attention in class, take notes and do all the readings then naturally you should be fine...so i tend to not stress. ironic how i am stressing now. but i did spend all morning painting my toenails and my nails and grooming myself...

tonight is ram night and it will be the last ram for this year for my awesome compadre who will soon be partaking on a journey in one of the asiatic islands. so nerve wrecking and sad. for now it is. i am happy for them of course.

highlights of my weekend

it was an excellent weekend indeed.

+watch hot fuzz. it was such such such a funny movie. hahaha. it is by the same director who directed shaun of the dead. i am glad i skipped spider man 3 to watch hot fuzz instead.
+i bought a t-shirt from uwaijimaya. on it is a character from spirited away, the little black fuzzy thing and some japanese character on it. such a cute shirt.
+i tried a new ramen place in china town (not the fui-ji chinese ramen). owned by japanese and up to par. it was excellent. the only down side is that they don't have gyoza!!! i love my gyozas!!!
+i bought a beautiful tea cup. and finally found mint tea that i'd like.
+and of course hanging with my bf.

i don't like to talk politics on my journal, but i would like to advise a certain someone to watch the vulgar language when speaking of the opposing candidate in france. even though she is not up to par, there is no reason to call someone a retarded bitch. true, i did call george w. bush a dumbass...but that's because he IS. he can't even speak proper english. the other word is derogatory not only in general but to all women and i am appalled that someone would go to such lengths to use such degrading words. you can disagree with me, but it is still out of line. it is harsh and unnecessary. with that said, i wish france and monsieur sarkozy with ALL the luck.

ok, i guess i really need to go study now.

funny phrases for the evening (sorry for non-french speakers)

"oui, je lift des weights des fois." me
franglais at its best. LOL.

"laissez les bons temps rouler." monika
can this even be translated in french from the american phrase "let the good times roll"? it does sound hella funny though.

ah, l'inspiration!!

also i am imprisoning myself tonight to study for my french cinema midterm. unfortunately the busiest weekend appears to be also the weekend where most friends have asked me to hang out with them. O o

too much going on, with too little time to write

so there is too much going on, excitement, newness in my life right now that i hardly find the time to breathe, and to write, quel vie!!!

**edit: i will write a revised version on the offer from the nintendo of america for french customer representative relations later.
