Resolutions 09

It's 10am on January 30th. I'm already $2.03 over my February drinking budget. ($1.65 over in Jan). While not entirely my fault - these tend to be the result of picking up group tabs - I may have under-budgeted for alcohol...

I'm pretty sure my roommate's don't stop having fun when I'm not around. This makes it difficult to get things done. I yelled in to Liz this evening about the "cleanliness" of her bathroom. She was talking to her parents on Skype. Apparently her father appreciates my sense of humor but Bill's right. I should stop talking about poop.

PS I love you...

I found a card that is funny and have a person in mind to send it to. But I can't figure out how to sign it.
less than "love"
more than "sincerely"
hearts and xo's seem foolish

Why is there no middle ground of affection in signatures?? Post suggestions in comments...

Collected Links

Porn Industry needs a bail out because apparently congress has "a responsibility to restore sexual health" to America. Thru porn. No thanks. Admittedly a clever publicity stunt, and perhaps some cultural satire. None the less, these men make me feel ill about the state of the world.

Walmart taking over an animated chart of the US Walmart explosion.

Interesting article on a capitalist movementaway from ownership and towards access, where we will no longer own, but pay to have access to "communal" digital commodities. I may be verging on radical enough to disagree with the theoretical concept of ownership - especially as it mutates to include people and relationships as property - but see what you think.

Finally, you may be aware of my issues with the marketing scheme of Gardasil brand vaccine, and the larger issue of contraception and STI protection being primarily the responsibility of the woman. Apparently there's now a request into the FDA to make the vaccine approved for men. I'll be interested to see what kind of cancer they use in that commercial. I sense that penile, anal or throat cancer are going to be less tasteful than cervical cancer. Think they'll come right out and say it stops warts???

Friday night pattycake

matching hats
drying the drool

It was Friday night and we're young and single. So we went cosmic bowling at the place attached to the strip joint. They wouldn't let us drink in the candlepin lanes because that's the family friendly space.

Made a visit to Salt Hill, helped a lady find her black shirt.

But I have to say, by far the highlight of the night, for me at least, was sitting in our laundry room/bathroom on the floor playing patty cake, trying to remember the words to Miss Susie, and throwing back some Pepto.

miss susie had a steamboat
the steamboat had a bell
miss susie went to heaven
the steamboat went to
hello operater
give me number nine
if you dissconect me
ill cut off your
behind the frigerator
there was a peice of glass
miss susie sat upon it and broke her big fat
ask me no more questions
tell me no more lies
the boys were in the bathroom
zipping up there
flys are in the meadow
and the bees r in there hives.
miss susie and her boyfriend
were kissing in the
d.a.r.k d.a.r.k.
dark dark dark
darker than the ocean
darker than the sea
darker then the underwear
my mother gave to me
