Must Be Tuesday
Chatter from A to Z with a special place for Buffy, Angel and Apolo Anton Ohno.
Wednesday, March 29, 2006
In reading in my...uh, I guess a sublet newspaper? Well, it's a small edition to the Chicago Tribune called RedEye. At any rate, it's a nice little informative, gossip paper and it's free. But there was an article about blogging/bloggers. And while they focused mostly on Myspace, the gist of the article was that too many people post things on the internet thinking that they can never be found.

Uh, uh, wrong! as Freddy Kruger once put it. They had a couple of people who lost jobs because of things they'd posted. It is also more common for employers to search you out online and check you out. A cop said that he trolls the internet in search of very bad things (child porn, etc) and finds plenty of stuff, mostly by, (shocking) teens.

And that's where my rant begins because most teens post willy nilly and don't think anything of it. There was some campus type blog that I forget the name of it and they said plenty of college age kids post there because you need a college email address and password to access it, so they're safe -- for now.

Still, the cop said he's found pics of teens drinking and commiting crimes and sexually explicit material.

To step on my soapbox so to speak, I don't think anything on the internet should be used against you. You lead a dominatrix life afterwork? Should it be held against you? No. I don't agree with that.

But when you post your doings on Myspace and Blogger or Diary or whatever else, you're inviting everyone in. Still, as long as you do your job and are professional at work it should be nobody's business.

I agree that certain jobs could be a problem. If you have to have lots of client contact or be very client friendly and someone may reconize you as the woman of the Panty Fetish Freak World blog and website, then it may cause a problem. People will think differently of you and may be turned off--or on.

Say you work with children. Hmm, may not be pretty. Then again, if no one can point out a time you've been unprofessional, as in leading the 10-year-olds through the Panty Fetish site, then they shouldn't have a problem with you.

Overall, I don't agree with having to answer for posts you've made today, yesterday or 20 years ago. BUT I understand how some professions can pose a problem.

I've been tempted to post my pic, but decided against it. Mainly because I don't have any pics of me I like, but also because, what's the point? And also some things I say are personal, some aren't, but on occasion I confess because I feel the need to confess, or vent or cry or whine and it's nice knowing that the people who comment aren't in my workplace or classroom and I don't know about it. I think that would irk me.

I used to write explicit fanfiction waaaay back in the day, yes it was all Buffy and Angel. It's still out there. Some of it is good, some of it is bad, but now I realize I wouldn't want my future employers picking it up. I'm going to delete the site and move it.

I think I've talked enough so I'll get off my soapbox. I just found this article interesting, especially since I blog. I also think that if your blog is just everyday blatter chatter you have nothing to worry about. But if you talk daily about how you're skimming the books at work, well....that's another story.

Be careful fellow bloggers! You never know who's reading.

Presentation: Accomplished
Well, one presentation down 2 to go. I'm so relieved this is over. We even had to have visual aids. My presentation was on Music Therapy so I brought a sample of music to play. Everyone really liked the music, I don't think they wanted it to end. Everyone 'ohhh'd' when it stopped playing. LOL

Overall it went well, my teacher even noted that we did every point she wanted us to make. *whew* there's one group that was pretty bad and obviously she's making them do theirs again. They were supposed to go today, but they weren't ready. They're not happy about it. Oh well.

The icing on the cake? We had to turn in Reflection Papers on a 'field trip' to a hospital visit. My teacher praised the best paper and read that one outloud. And guess who's paper it was? Yep, mine. It was the only paper in class free of grammatical errors and with a nice flow. This one girl was all 'I bet that's my paper!' while she was reading it. Nope, all mine. Hee.

I'm supposed to be at work right now but I snuck off to the computer lab, but that was all the bloggety talk I have for today. I'm still coughing but it's getting better. But I'm still tired.

On a sidenote, I still can't find Apolo on the Wheaties box and I'm getting worried. He was supposed to be on the box for March and March is almost over. Now I'm going to have to scour the city of Chicago for it. I don't have time! But I want it!


Until later guys

Back from the Dead
I'm feeling much better. Unfortunetly, I'm coughing more. Siiiiigh! Anyway, I slept as long as physically possible today. Which was only until about 10:45am and believe me, I've slept until 12pm so that's nothing. I still feel really worn out though and not looking forward to the week. Ugh.

It's only a few days until April and that's when the countdown will really start. The Wizard of Oz hour glass will finally be flipped. It'll be time to really get papers done and stop putting them off. I'm not looking forward to April.

I'm going to redo my resume and start sending them out like mad. That's why graduation is both happy and sad. Though, I'd rather be working than going to school. I'm tired of school. But it's going to be scary to actually finally have school behind me (for the time being) and only working in front of me. I'm conflicted about how I feel, but I am looking forward to working.

I'm also looking forward to reading something other than textbooks. My first pick is by Laurell K. Hamilton. Yes, it has vampires in it. And while her books have been sucking lately I'm still invested in the series. How's that for commitment? heh. Her sex scenes are spectactular. Seriously. If you don't mind sex between a human and/or a vampire or werewolf or wereleopard you're in luck. Not that I only like her books for the sex scenes. But the thing is lately those are the only interesting parts of the books anymore. And despite the lack of story, horrid typos, stupid plot and Anita's convoluted personal life, I still read, because I've read the previous 10 books, so what's one more?

The End

Cough, Sniff

Wouldn't you know that as soon as I have to do my presentation I get sick? Yes, my throat hurts, my nose is dripping, I'm tired and I have a slight cough. Arrrgh! I plan on staying in bed as much as possible tommorow, but I have work to do. I still have a 10 page paper to write/type and a 5-8 page paper that I haven't even started on.

I haven't even had the energy to stop by my favorite blogs. Miss you guys! Anyway, *cough* I'm going to lay down now. I managed to check out some Apolo pics, tee hee. But they didn't give me any energy. However, I ordered a back issue of Cosmo that Apolo was in and it came today. Whee!

I've been taking Dayquil tablets. I hope they help. I DON'T HAVE TIME TO BE SICK!

Until later guys...

Death is your gift
Okay that blog title is from a Buffy episode, of course. Basically I'm griping about all the deaths of major characters on TV shows lately. If you haven't heard the news, I watch a lot of TV. And I'm miffed that major characters are getting the ax. When I write I just can't bring myself to kill a major character.

Just can't do it. I specifically put in characters just to kill them off, then they have no significance to me, I don't have any attachment. I create them to kill and I set it up so that my readers are supposed to have an attachment then--off with their heads.

From 24 to The Shield I'm aghast. Is this the new thing? What's up with that. I'm dissapointed. :(

I cut my first class today. And on my way to work in the same building I walked right past my teacher and like 5 classmates. D'oh! That's what I get for cutting. I was barely able to stay awake for my last one. Hmm, must be all that late night Resident Evil. Kidding. I'm going to start going to bed earlier. This is not working.

I feel like I'm falling behind again with papers, papers, papers. I took graduation pictures today so I feel like the end is near.

When I ask you! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeen!!!!?? Sigh and Zzzzzzz.

'Spring' called, she said she'd be late

It was like 2000 degrees below zero here today. Seriously, it was really cold. I needed gloves and wearing gloves is a last resort with me. They're the last thing I put on, it'll have to be really cold.

I missed Scrubs again. I need Tivo! I'm going to take graduation pictures tommorow--I think. I need to read the mailed info again. Should be a nice memento,though. lol

My presentation got pushed to next Tuesday because some others ran over and she's going to let some other people go Thursday. Actually, I'm not mad. It'll give me more time to work on it.

I was cold and sleepy today and had to work until 4 and not 3 like I thought, so I wasn't too happy. But it was okay. Then I had to go vote afterschool. So, I was so happy to get home. The treat to make me feel better? I went to my favorite Apolo site and discovered she had posted 8 or 9 downloads of Apolo interviews and racing competitons. Sweet! What a nice way to warm up. heh.

Well, I finished my test for my online class. Got 94 out of 100. Little bitter since I changed one answer from a right answer to a wrong answer! *grumble* but it's still an A. I also figured out what I'm going to do for my presentation on Thursday and I got like, 4 pages written long hand for a paper.

All this and I still managed to play Resident Evil until 3am last night. heh, heh. Well, actually I played the same damn scene about 300+ times. I just couldn't kill the enemies. That is until I found a cheat on the internet. Ahhh, who doesn't love the internet? Especially at three in the morning. hee.

I even found a gamer website called Stuckgamer (how ironic is that?) that showcases video walkthroughs. Yep, you can watch someone play and see what to do. The future is now! I'm a gamer for life, can't help it. ;)

In a sidebar, I still can't find Apolo on the Wheaties box. No sightings yet. :(

I plan on watching The Sopranos tonight as well as The Simpsons. I love new episodes. But I've been missing Scrubs. Does anyone watch Scrubs? They're so funny. I want them on DVD.

I also watch a lot of Deal or No Deal and I'd like to go on that stupidly addictive show. But what irritates me is how people pick the cases. I know you're just picking numbers but still, wouldn't you be nervous? I've seen a show where the lady picked that stupid .01 case, but of course she doesn't know it. And she's real quick to pick, yelling, "Number 23!" "Number 11!" and she's all "I came here for a million dollars! No deal! No way!"

Whatever. I say take the money and run. Granted, I'd play as long as I could to get the banker to offer me at least 100,000 or more. Hell, at least between 60k and 80k. I'm straight with that. I'm not greedy. Because greedy gets you that $5 that one lady walked away with. I'd feel so stupid. Can you imagine walking away with over 100 grand just for picking some stupid suitcases? Didn't think so.

Hope everyone had a nice weekend!

Crush or Crazy?
I watched Jeopardy today after a really long time and I realized that I know nothing. LOL. The big brains on that show blew me away.

Now, on to todays top story...

A couple of blogs got me thinking this week. First from Diva and then from Shannon. I'm gonna go with talking about Shannon because it correlates with my own ongoing attraction to a certain speed skater.

Shannon talked about crushes and what makes a crush, and do you still get crushes, and an overall crush theme. Well, I thought waaaaay back to grammar school when I had a crush on, dare I say his name? Larry. Yes, he was tall and cute with dark hair and his best friend was THE hot guy. So they were a 'terrific twosome' if you will. I don't know why I set my sights on Larry when all the other girls wanted Shawn, his friend.

Anyway, I had a hard crush on this guy and back in 8th grade. You remember how you lined up for everything? Well, I just remember being lined up outside the classroom his class was in and not being able to wait for them to come out and pass us. I barely contained my girlish glee along with all the other girls waiting for a glimpse of "the two."

Then, lo and behold, I was on my way to McDonald's one day afterschool and there he was headed there too. He smiled at me, struck up a conversation (well, we did know each other, we were classmates) and we ended up eating together. Best day of my life? At the time yes. Nothing came of it, but it was cool that he hung out with me. He had no idea I was crushing on him so I don't consider our pseudodate a pity date. Just a nice, distant memory.

Fast forward and I've had several crushes since then. One led to a two year relationship, others never amounted to anything. But, I have a very obsessive spirit. I know, you're shocked :) but when I latch onto something, it starts out a crush, or just liking it, and then BOOM! it's all I think about.

My first real total obsession, crazy, that's-all-I-think-about wasn't even a person. Not a man, not even a woman but a TV show. Yes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. When that show premiered I was still watching Beverly, Hills 90210 and wasn't that into it but watched it anyway.

Soon, I taped it, grew to love it, watched it everyday, trolled the internet for info. Bought everything I could afford and begged others to get me stuff when I couldn't. It was a total obsession and I couldn't get enough Buffy, Buffy, Buffy.

I remember loving the show in the beginning because when Buffy came to Sunnydale she wasn't popular or the prettiest and she became friends with Willow, over Cordelia. Willow, shy and dorky Yep. I could identify with Willow--and the entire "Scooby Gang." They had a small clique, weren't popular, often had awkward encounters with the opposite sex and had a fierce friendship. I loved it! A TV show changed my life. Years later I'm still immersed in Buffy. Later they got more fashion conscious, Willow turned gay, they all had several destructive sexual relationship and went down shame spirals in their lives.

In other words, I couldn't identify with them so much anymore. Still, I love that show and will until the end. And it's still the core meaning of the show that keeps me obsessed.

Now, I wouldn't say Apolo is a new obsession. I've enjoyed him ever since 2002. I kept up with him during his other races and progress updates only by internet. It was the only way. But when the Winter Olympics roll around I get visuals! I get exciting races! I get real, live Apolo and my obsession flares up like a long, dormant dose of the herpes virus.

I just don't think I have a crush on him, but that I'm obsessed. I've been watching my Olympic tapes every day, and even with meeting other guys, I'm still all about Apolo. Not that I'm foregoing relationships because of him. (not that there are any relationships to speak of) but I think about him everyday, and spend hours at his fan websites. The recent Olympics just made it worse. When these 4 years roll around I realize how much I missed seeing his face and seeing him in action.

What attracts me to him is not just physical, but everything. He seems very cool and laid back. I like his voice, his eyes, his lips; I love the way he skates, his smile. I like the way he laughs and the way he takes things in stride. I think he's funny and very, very nice to his fans, and just a generally friendly, generous, likable person. I like all the interesting facts about his life and his life at the OTC (Olympic Training Center) especially his clashes with the federation and staff/coach changes. I just think he's great.

I'm sure no one would think a black chick would be so obsessive over Buffy and Apolo Anton Ohno. Well, there it is. LOL. That's what I get for reading those blogs, made me open up. I guess the overall theme of this post is that every now and then I realize my obsessions. My sister doesn't have any. I can't think of a single thing she obsesses over. Things come and go with her.

Me? I'll want to be buried with my Buffy DVD's. ROTFL! Yes, it's that bad.

(I hope no potential husbands read this. heh)

Ain't nothing going on but the blog
Taking a cue from Diva I have to say I haven't had anything to blog about, thus the no blogging.

I took a midterm today and after the test she asked us if we wanted to look at the answer key. *Eeep!* I was like okay, and I got maybe 5-8 wrong out of 40. I didn't look too hard but I hope there's no more than that. Whew. Post-test I felt free and decided to blog even though I have nothing to say.

I'm deciding if I want to go ahead and volunteer at the hospital. I have an appointment for next week. I'm working at school now and I don't know about the time thing. I don't think I can do both, even if I volunteer for 2 or 4 hours a week. I think I'll cancel the appointment.

Ahh well, when I'm not blogging, playing Resident Evil or reading/watching Apolo I'm studying/school work. Wow, my exciting life. LOL.

Actually, I'm hoping for more excitement after I graduate. The thought of no more papers, studying and reading text books (for a while anyway) gives me a happy! Squee! I think I'm going to go back to my first love--animals, and train as a Vet Tech. The math scares me though.

I'd also like to get back to working on my novel. Hell, I just want to finish it let alone struggling to get it published. I'd like a job where I'm not bringing work home so that I can write.

Writing is my first passion, then animals. I just love to immerse myself in a world and characters I've created. I want to be like Paul Shelden (the character in Misery) who goes up to the solace of his winter cabin to write. (uh, without the ankle breaking) I'd love to do that. Or Johnny Depp's character in Secret Window. (uh, without the psychotic duel personality) Isolated from civilization for a while. Sigh.

Someday maybe, someday.

Wishin' and Hopin'
It was a bee-u-t-ful 50 degrees here. Okay, you could have worn a hat if you wanted and you still needed your jacket zipped up, but it was better than it was. The sun was out!

I've been playing Resident Evil some more and my thumbs hurt now. LOL. I still love that game though. I went out with some friends since my spring break is coming to an end. Sniff. I need another spring break in April. Ah well, at least I'll be graduating.

In other news, I'm seriously considering going to the Winter Olympics in 2010. Yes, I'm obsessed, you didn't know? Actually, I enjoyed the Olympics waaaaay before my boyfriend Apolo came on the scene. I doubt he'll be competing again in 4 years, but I'd still like to go to the Olympics nonetheless. But to see him skate in person, that would be so awesome. I wouldn't be able to stand it. Short Track is so exciting! God, I love him. *swoon*

I'm actually trying to find out just how much tickets and events would be. I just want a range. On Olympic sites I've been seeing pricing and ticketing info won't be available until late 2008. It's in Vancouver and I'm in Chicago, it wouldn't be major travelling for me to get there, not like this year in Italy. Italy! Sigh.

While I want to go, I know Apolo competing would make it sooo sweet. If I find out he's not competing it will probably dampen my spirits and I probably wouldn't end up going, but I'd have to see. I think it would be cool either way. I wish there was another up and coming Apolo for the mens Short Track U.S. team. Without Apolo the U.S. won't make it on the map in Short Track. He's it. We need another great Short Track skater to take his place. I don't see one in the distance though.

Hey, stop your laughing and pointing! I can't help it okay? I'll be the one you see with a sign chanting USA! USA! heh. I'm in the minority because this year everyone seemed to be watching Dancing with the Stars. Oh well.

Wanna go to bed?

Well, as far as my post title is concerned, don't answer that unless you're Apolo. Heh. Anyway, I was talking to my sister one day and I said one of my favorite things to do is sleep. LOL. She was like "I don't like actually sleeping, but hanging out in bed is a definite plus."

Well, I like lounging in pajamas and actually sleeping. I think it's because I like to daydream and that's when I come up with writing ideas and whatnot. I daydream and end up falling asleep I guess. I don't know. Anyway, my sister is more of a fan of pajamas than me, but from hanging around with her I've found a few sets I really like. She clued me in on Nick and Nora whose prices range from $49.00 to over $100. They're sold at Target at much lower prices. My pajamas cost $24.99 but they also start at $19.99. Anyway, those Monkey Pajamas are the ones I have. No, that's not me in the picture. I didn't think to post a pic of me in my jammies.

Actually, they're pretty worn so I wouldn't want to post a pic of me in them anyway. I really like Monkey's. My sister teases me. I once eyed some monkey candelabrum and she was like "Everything you're looking at has monkey's on them. Do you realize that?" Heh.

Here is another pair I want. Mmm, fatty goodies.

Being a pimp just got easier

Well, I must say I enjoyed the Oscars. I watched pretty much from start to finish, and it went down smooth, with maybe a couple of chunky swallows along the way.

I think it's great that we've FINALLY come to the point where rappers can not only perform at the Oscars, but win. Congrats to 3-6 Mafia for their win with the song "It's hard out here for a Pimp." LOL, that was great.

Moving on, here's my opinions for the night:

Best Things:

The "Political slander" campaign spoofs. Those were hilarius! genuinely funny and lightened the mood.
Jon Stewart
Plenty of short Oscar speeches, with the exception of Reese Witherspoon, but she gets cut slake since she won Best Actress (plus, I'm a big fan)
The musical numbers; they were all entertaining and went quickly
Montages; I love montages and felt they were a perfect way to sum up what the Academy Awards is about: the celebration of cinema. Great clips, emotional moments, made you love movies all over again.
Isack Pearlman playing his violin over the movie clips.
Will Ferrel and Steve Carell
3-6 Mafia winning and being really excited, happy and shocked.

Worst Things:

Sorry, didn't find Ben Stiller all that funny
The 'background' music played over the acceptance speeches. A bit distracting, it was like the band didn't want them to talk at all.
The band cutting off acceptance speeches, and Best Picture no less! Tacky and rude!

Overall I found the show to work. Brokeback Mountain didn't win, but that's okay. I didn't expect it too, but other than that and 'It's hard out here for a Pimp' I didn't see any other surprises.

I knew Phillip Seymore Hoffman would win for Capote, mainly because it was rumored forever, but because he's so great. All the time he's great. So is Reese.

People I want to see win an Oscar:

Matt Dillon (he's been a wonderful actor for many years, I've loved him ever since The Outsiders.)
Terrence Howard/ Hustle and Flow
Heath Ledger/Brokeback Mountain
Jake Gyllenhaal/Brokeback Mountain

I hope to see them back in the nominee seat soon.

And the winner is...

The Oscars are tonight. Does anyone care? *ignores crickets chirping* I mean besides the nominees. I sorta care. I'm pulling for Brokeback Mountain to win. No, I still didn't get a chance to see it and that totally sucks because every time I wanted to go I started feeling guilty that I should have been doing school work instead.

Anyway, there's been a lot of Oscar talk and over hype of celebrities and I just don't feel the same way I did years ago about the Oscars. I used to feel some sort of excitment, don't know why, but I actually looked forward to looking at it.

I think because several years ago I started to see the Academy Awards in a new light. Mainly with Brokeback Mountain it made me think about it again. I think it was Bill Maher that said that Brokeback Mountain is not a "gay cowboy" movie. Again, I havent's seen it but thankfully I was able to read the short story it's based on and, like Bill stated, the characters, Jack and Ennis, don't spent an awful lot of time 'being gay.'

Their "fishing trips" took them away from prying eyes to a place where they could be together. Yes they had a homosexual relationship, and they loved each other and they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together but the movie spans 20 years, through marriages and children of both characters.

It's a love story, it's a drama, it's about two men who are in love with each other but just can't make it work. I think the movie deserves more than to just be called a 'gay cowboy' movie. And while I praise it I don't like the fact that a movie like this wouldn't get praised had it been an Independent film without known stars or the fact that so many people are fascinated with two men kissing.

Two men kissing? On screen? So what?

While the Academy has moved forward, finally honoring a black man and woman with Best Actor and Actress, something that hasn't been done in over 40 years, there are some things that just won't change.

Such as the fact that if you have some sort of affliction, trauma, disadvantage, emotional breakdown or deal with weighty subject matter, your chances of winning are very good.

Yes, Lord of the Rings slipped in there, but that's an exception.

When an actor or actress has to overcome something, we all know they're a shoe-in for Oscar to perk up his golden ears. Examples include:

Forrest Gump
My Left Foot
A Beautiful Mind
Schindler's List
Rain Man

Not to say they weren't deserving, but you know what I'm trying to say. I'm one to say that 85% of the time I agree with the best picture winner, it's the other 15% where I feel other movies are overlooked because the basic requirements weren't met.

Spring Break
Since I have about 18 seconds to spare away from school this week, I decided to tool around with my blog. Don't ask me how long this will stay like this as this template is A WHOLE lot more work than blogger. Blogger was 1-2-3. This one is 1-49.

I can't get my profile name to show for some reason and I'm still working bugs out. I will no doubt be changing it again when I get the chance. Definetly to something simpler. I guess by the time I get tired of this look I'll be ready to do something else. ;)

Ahh well, that's how it usually goes. Anyway, I shall spend a couple of days unwinding before I go right back to the books because, dammit, I can't even enjoy Spring Break. *grumble* (not that it was going to be Gunngirl gone wild or anything, but you know)

Oh, and in my neverending Apolo news he was on Jay Leno last night and Ellen today. He's so sweet and such a hottie. Ellen tried to get him to shave off his soul patch. heh. I don't think so, Ellen. He's pretty shy I think, but he's definetly warmed up to interviewing.

Did you guys know I love Apolo? Yes? Oh, well I was just letting you know in case you didn't know. *hee*

Have a nice weekend everyone!

Good morning, breakfast is ready!

Beadinggal beat me to the news announcement, but in my Apolo news he's going to be on the Wheaties box. This will be the one and only time I have ever and will ever buy Wheaties. Mmm, breakfast with Apolo, sounds good to me.

Also, it's been discovered that more people know about The Simpsons than First Amendment rights. Hmmm, I say that's about right. In the article it said that people can name 2 or more Simpsons characters but can't name 2 or more First Amendments. Well, is it more important to know that Homer almost had an affari with Lurleen Lumpkin or that Sideshow Bob tried to kill Bart 5 times than it is that we have the right to free speech and freedom of press? No? Yeah, it's not more important. LOL. But it's the truth.

I can name all the part of the First Amendment. That's the Amendment that guarantees freedom of speech, religion, the right to worship Apolo Anton Ohno, to love Chicago Pizza over NY pizza, and to play Resident Evil for hours on end.

So, I think I made my point.
