*beep beep*

yesterday me and Mike finally cracked, we did yoga with Mollie, instead of sitting around being lazy. later on i was craving chocolate, so we went to Loblaws, i was gonna buy some brownies under the guise of "i deserved it, i got into OCAD". when we got there Mike INSISTED we go to the bakery [i am cheap, i was going to buy the pre-packaged two-bites]. he had his heart set on a giant cake. eventually i caved when he pointed out that the cost split is about the same as the brownies. so i caved. the chick asked us what we wanted written on the cake and we were like "uuhhmmm…… *look at each other* uhmm…. just surprise us…" and she stared at us as if we were nuts. she repeated the question, we debated a bit, and decided on "just surprise us" and she was like "uhmm…" and gave us another "you are so f-ckin’ insane, what are you tripping on?" look, paused, and then headed to the back to write something. we honestly had no idea what she was going to write, if she got what we were saying.
as a reward for doing yoga and taking a step towards healthy… we bought a chocolate cake with a side of diabetes. of course all that sugar, there was an inch thick layer of icing, led to severe hyperness.
later that night, still hyper, we were sitting around and talking:
*beep beep*
Mike: *laughing* that was my watch, i haven’t been able to find it for two weeks now. but i keep hearing it beep.
Me: *also laughing* yeah i keep hearing it randomly throughout the day, i didn’t know you lost it
Mike: yep. i can even hear it when i am in the shower.
Me: hehehe, yeah i can’t hear the doorbell, but i can hear your watch while i am in the shower. hell i can hear it from just about any part of the house, beep beep, *laughs*
sidenote: as i was writing this, the watch beeped


so a few months ago me and Brent were at the bar watching a UFC fight and he kept calling it MMA and i was like "huh? man on man action?" and i giggled riotiously. and now the whole internet can read about it:
in the second paragraph. that’s me. i am the mentioned girlfriend

Das iTeam

as you know, i love TV. especially The IT Crowd, easily one of the greatest shows on TV. brought to us by the Brits. and apparenlty adored by other countries… who have tried their own take on it. there was supposed to be an American version [figures, it would be just like The Office, and the rumoured to be coming soon Little Britain], but apparently it got pulled really early. so early that i am pretty sure there isn’t even a full episode, or at least not out on the internet… yet? but then i heard that there was a german version. we just had to check it out. it sounded awesome. even with the language barrier. but things were not looking good. it got canned after one episode [evem ythough i did find an "episode 2"] and the ones i did find were impossible to download. eventually i found it using google video. thank God we did not lose much time searching or allocate bandwidth towards downloading it. what a waste.
they use the exact same story line as the british one and try to make everything look the same. but it is a paltry resemblance at most. the acting is sub-par, except for the one scene where the "Jen stand-in" panics about the boss coming to visit. other than that, Moss and Roy had barely any speaking lines, and the ones they did SUCKED, well the delivery did. it was not an issue of language barrier because it was an episode i just about know by heart, i know all the jokes and most of the lines. even the set of the IT office was rather crappy and hastily-put-together-looking.
all in all it was really crappy and i can definetly see why it got canned so quickly. but it was still worth watching. it only further reminded me of how great the IT Crowd is… and when something is that great…. you do not tinker with it.
if you do not believe me, or want to see for yourself, click:

and if  you understand German and there actually are funny jokes in there that i am missing then tell me please?

Secret Talents of the Stars

bored, and surfing the net, i chanced upon a show that intriged me: Secret Talents of the Stars. with such a great title how could i go wrong?! the show sounded awesome. and just as i was ready to watch it… the news came in. the show has been cancelled. one episode… and it gets canned. but this only further intrigued me. how could a show with such a great sounding title and assumedly a great concept behind fail so miserably so quickly? and with such a wonderful host? the guy from Family Feud, well the current host i mean. the one who does that stupid little dance every time he comes out.
first up was figure skating chick, whose name was something that sounded like Sacha Cohen. to which i immediately added Baron and got real excited, because whatever his secret talent is it must be awesome. but then they said she. and figure skating. at which point i lost interest. as it turns out her secret talent is that she is a contortionist, which just does not seem like a far stretch to me, seeing as in the figure skating clips they showed her putting her leg up to her head. in the end the contortionist show she put on did nothing more than creep me out, she could just about get her head to her crotch by bending BACKWARDS. and it was also creepy when she put her foot under her chin. and when i could see her ribs. unpleasant.
just as i was starting to realize why the show got cancelled, they brought out the next contestant: George Tekai. i lost it laughing already, for i associate him with William Shatner who doesn’t even have to do anything to make me laugh. but it got even better. as it turns out: his secret talent is country singing. there were some great lines in this bit, like: "i’m finally coming out… of my shower stall". and when the mean judge was critiquing him he said "if you do come back can you de-suckify your voice?". but getting to watch George Tekai sing "On The Road Again" and seeing the lady judge, Debbie was her name?, ask him to go on tour with her in her tour bus was worth watching.
after that was Clint Black. i still have no idea who he is, a country star of sorts? he did a comedy routine that was pretty lame. there were one or two jokes that made me laugh, but they weren’t especially clever, so he got no points with me. in the end he sucked. BUT the mean judge who hated every performance so far pulled a 180 and actually liked the comedy routine! at which point i started thinking that this indeed was scripted, which is why it failed.
and then Mya the singer, did a tap dancing routine. no matter how you slice it, tap dancing is boring. even when you are fast forwarding it. the judges kept hitting on her and calling her beautiful. beauty has NOTHING to do with talent *angry face*
after the voting, Clint moved on, but George didn’t?! and my above point was proven: tap dancing is boring and looks do NOT count as talent, Mya didn’t move on…
and the contortionist moved on. but none of that matters. the show has been cancelled.
i demand they bring it back.

reporting from the race track

in the spirit of my stories about gaming, i bring you this gem from last night’s game of Cruisin’ USA, which i have come to the conclusion that the physics of are a lot like being on ice:

 i am in first, speeding towards the finish line then blue [one of the AI racers] CRASHES INTO ME… i spin… losing control…. i stand up and start yelling, regain control…. and now i am paranoid that blue is gonna pass me… but he is nowhere to be seen…. and suddenly tries to ram me from behind but as his bumper touches mine BAM I WIN THE RACE.

crazy shit going down on US 101.
