it's known that i'm a people watcher

...and by people watching, i mean i will stare a stranger down... to the death.
this morning on my way to work, i was particularly fascinated by this smart-jewishy-looking guy who was wearing MIT sweatpants and consistently twitching in a tourette's kind of way.
suddenly the train stopped between stations.
oh shit. i'm going to be late for work.
i imagined being stuck here on the subway.
and not being able to get out.
until the autistic-math-genius-twitcher used his algebraic-savant-skills and came up with an unlikely, but successful escape plan.
i felt better about being on the train.
then it started moving and i was only 5 minutes late to work this morning.

for someone who is so fastidious about dress

... i'm rather messy about about keeping my spaces neat and tidy. i would like to say that i'm only messy, not dirty, not leaving used plates on tabletops or in the sink for days on end... but that wouldn't be true.
i recently had over a friend who had never been to my apartment before.
"why is there a robot lying on the floor?"
"oh that's not a robot", i told him. "that's a fan... that broke... and fell over. sometime between thanksgiving and christmas. i just haven't gotten around to picking it up and throwing it away."
i think that's one of the reasons that i don't like christmas decorations. if i had put them up, they would still be up by march.

this is a little belated

for chistmas i had dinner with my little brother at my friend juliet's apartment. also there were her sister and her mother.
her mom was, as they say "a hoot". we were discussing the most important and relevant current events, when the subject of angelina jolie came up.
"well as far as i'm concerned all of their children are illegitimate." said mrs. totten with a straight face.

mickey rourke

... is kind of nutjob. and that's an understatement. i mean first he was hot with 9 1/2 weeks, and then he was hot with all that boxing stuff. then he was not hot with all the boxing injuries, and then he was not hot with that bad face lift.
now he dresses like if william shatner was a clown... and carried an elderly chihuahua with him.
but i do want to see the wrestler.

one of the things i do like

... is "everybody loves raymond". i'm probably one of the only "young people" in the world that actually likes this show. everything about it is enjoyable to me except for the fact that in real life patricia heaton is a republican.
she voted for mccain.
like my dad.
i guess next time i see her i'll just have to avoid that as a topic of conversation.
