Lion King

How hard can it be to find one person to go to a show with?

Well. I mean when one has 22 tickets, and you only have one additional ticket left. how hard can that be? expcept for the fact that I've already tapped all of my friends. Hmm. is it a bad thing when you only have 22 friends including their immediate family members and siginificant others?

Ah. well if anyone out there is interested in (1) Lion King ticket for this saturday night, let me know!

Shane Cooper's Birthday

Oooh. Tomorrow (2.03.2004) will be Shane Cooper's birthday.
Who is Shane Cooper? He was my best friend in the first grade who I thought was the coolest person in the world because he had a Dodger Blue Digital Watch (My parents didn't give me the $4.95 plus one stamp to be a member of the Blue Crew) -- Its amazing what you remember after all of these years...

Anyways (for those of you who are curious) - sometime after the third grade, Shane discovered girls... and well... I believe that he had better things to do than hang out with me after that point in time...

Sex and The City

Hmm. I vaguelly remember learning in a marketing class that Sex Sells. Either that or Death Sells. But I'm pretty sure that it's sex that sells - afterall, when was the last time that you saw a skeleton in a cigarette add instead of the usual ultra attractive -- you'll never see me smoking one of these things -- but so long as you think that you'll get someone like me by smoking these things -- super models, I'll go ahead and choose choice "A" (and as with any multiple choice test that I take) proceed to put a question mark next to the question number, as a reminder for me to go back and check this question later on in the test... [I have often found that you can answer a suprising large number of questions in a test by just looking at other questions that are asked during the test - e.g. if one question asks what is the legal speed limit in California, and another question asks whether or not it is wreckless to drive above 65 m.p.h - its a pretty safe bet to say that the speed limit in California is indeed 65 m.p.h.]

-- But Anyways, I digress --

So. Sex in the City. My new roommate (Hi Evelyn!) and I have become addicted to it. (hmm. that phrase gets a question mark next to it as well). I personally love the stream-of-consciousness portion of it. And - well - to be perfectly honest, I wish that I was able to generate those one line zingers that Sara Jessica Parker is always able to come up with in the middle of the episode...

(I bet that's not what you were expecting me to say)

Anyways, I truly do love the one line questions that seem to be the focal point of the show... Like: "what if we just keep on dating the same person over and over again, just with a new face and name"...

Alas, I'm an engineer, and the best that I am able to come up with is: if a=b, and b=c, doesn't a=c... (and I had to borrow that one).

So - I find myself in Arkansas right now. visiting friends... and taking along my trusty laptop --> the sad part about it all is that I have had more "social" interaction with this laptop and e-mail than with just about anything else... (I knew that there was a reason people were warning me about getting a laptop). Its three a.m. here... and no offense to the people who actually live here (as opposed to the crazy people who choose Arkansas as a vacation destination), it doesn't seem to matter what time of day it is here... If New York City is the city that never sleeps... well... Arkansas seems to be the state that is making up for all of that lost sleep time... (I guess that was a little mean)... But I do have a funny story out of all of this (well - maybe this too is a little mean)... I went to Warm Springs yesterday to go to the horse races (apparently, Clinton's boyhood town is little more then some warm springs, a HoJo, and a horce racing track), and I was mesmerized by the sheer number of people cheering at the track... for each horse's number... Now I may not be a vet, but I'm pretty sure that even if horses knew their names, the wouldn't know which number they were entered in as in the race... (ok, that was mean).

In other news... well... there really isn't a whole bunch. I'm going to see the Lion King (again!) on 2/21 in SF, and that's looking to be really (really) fun... I guess anytime you can arrange for 21 of your friends to go along with you - well that has to be fun... or incredibly hard to organize...

Anyways... its getting late... but I promise (to who?... hmm... to many questions) that I will post more often... till then, I'll leave you with a Sex and the City quote...

"Carrie: Modelizers are obsessed not with women but with models, who in most cities are safely confined to billboards and magazines, but in Manhattan actually run wild on the streets, turning the city into a virtual model country safari where men can pet the creatures in their natural habitat."
