Give It Up.

Alright. I've been in Boston for three weeks and have met only 2 new people. I'm out there, but the other students in my class haven't arrived yet. That has Vavoom feeling a tad lonely.

Lucky me -- I've got all of you to keep me company.

Today I have a simple request. Leave a comment. Any comment. I want to hear about your ingrown toenails, your new cordless phone, your plans for the weekend, anything. I know many of you visit and don't leave your calling card. I need you.

I'll start with my comment about nothing. I'm a sucker for hats. I bought one yesterday that's similar to Gilligan's hat, but it's rust colored. It's a preposterous hat, but I love it and I'm wearing it all day today.

Your turn. Help me cure my loneliness. Tell me something, anything.

I replaced my boring shower head with one that has 6 settings and totally rocks.

Yesterday at work I did my jobs, as usual, but had that sinking feeling you get when you think you've forgotten something...

I ended up having to ask my boss what else he wanted me to do when I couldn't think of it myself and it turned out that the only reason I forgot what I had to do was because I actually had nothing else to do!! :-p

My boss handed me a note today with all my jobs listed on it... I'm not sure if I should have thanked him or cursed him.

Mmm, I got my vasectomy results back yesterday. I can make no more babies. I dont' have a sore throat any more and I'm eating lunch with my mom today. My wife's toe is infected and my step-son has a small rash on his skin. My daughter likes to drink milk with a packet of Equal in it. She calls it "sweet milk".

I have a rash over my entire body and I think it is getting worse. I have no idea what could be causing it.

I bought a painting and I get to pick it up today.

I'm going to make my special flax cookies, too. And have tea with my friend Christine.

Recently, a co-worker who is gay informed me that he watched an episode of Real Sex on HBO and now knows what to do with a woman should he ever find himself in bed with one....

"It helps if her hips are slightly raised," he said eagerly. "And the's about an inch and a half inside know..."

As if I don't know about my G-spot.

Speaking of which, my lover is back safely from his trip to Miami and we're getting down tonight! :)

There's something wrong with the big toenail on my left foot. I think it's fungus.

Even though I just started posting, I'm completely addicted to photoblogging. It's so tough not to post a new picture every day, but I know I should space them out. You should drop by sometime:

I also just found out The Fiancé and I may get to see snow this Christmas. The first thing I thought was “cool, I bed I could get some great shots.” Yeah, I have a problem.

I just got into work and realised I forgot something very important yesterday. Now, I need to go pee really badly! : P

I have an incredibly strange phobia of mayonnaise.

Yep, won't even allow it in my house, touching my plate, near my plate or near me.

When I was a personal care attendant myself (yes I was) I wore rubber gloves to make a sandwich for my employer because I won't touch the container. He eventually got me the squeezable kind.

The air conditioner on my car is broken, its 100 degrees with about 80% humidity here, and it will cost me $1200 I don't have to get it fixed.

I've just about finished up with our company's recent acquisition of another firm, which means I'll actually get to spend my evenings at home. I can't wait!

As for the weekend...well it's college football season, so I have no plans but to sit at home, crack open a few beers, and watch some pigskin!

My c**ksucking quasi-bf is ignoring me (again). I can't tell if it's because I'm on the rag and not putting out, or because he's just generally an a**hole. For the umpteen-millionth time, I'm swearing that I won't see him, talk to him, screw him, etc., etc.

I hate being young and emotional.

The Irish kick off the Charlie Weis era on Saturday in Pittsburgh and I certainly will be there.

Today in a parking lot I saw a sign on the ground near parked cars which read "Take Parking Class".

I got my mid year review at work today and was told that I was one of the best at my job with lots of potential. Am feeling extremely big headed today

Awight, Vavoom, you asked. So, here are a few trivia items for you to digest:

- The dollar symbol ($) is a U combined with an S (U.S.)
- Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing.
- There are two credit cards for every person in the United States.
- The slogan on New Hampshire license plates is 'Live Free or Die'. These license plates are manufactured by prisoners in the state prison in Concord.
- The straw was probably invented by Egyptian brewers to taste in-process beer without removing the fermenting ingredients which floated on the top of the container.
- David Prowse, was the guy in the Darth Vader suit in Star Wars. He spoke all of Vader's lines, and didn't know that he was going to be dubbed over by James Earl Jones until he saw the screening of the movie.
- There are only thirteen blimps in the world.
- The white part of your fingernail is called the lunula.
- Madrid is the only European capital city not situated on a river.

Be careful what you ask for. Hope you had a great day. :-)

I just got my power bill and almost fainted it was $473, damn Vegas summer!

I went to the department stores Kohls and they had a sign that said 50% off on bra's. They were originally $30, so now they are $19.99.. hmm I wonder who needs a basic math class?

I'm debating the disposal any stuffed animal given to me that say the words "hug", "love" or has hearts on it. I would rather light them on fire but that might seem angry.

Well, I was just reading an email from a Mr David Gray and wondering why the name sounded so familiar... erk.

Other than that, I've been sitting on my butt all day feeling totally useless. Isn't that weird? When I don't have time to relax, it's all I can think about, but when I have all the time in the world, I feel useless...

Go figure.

I jsut started college on Monday. Its an diffrent experiance to say the least.

I realized today that you can text message other countries, although i'm sure i'll forget that I can the second I get the bill.

And i'm getting my cast of tomorrow. Thank God, I hate casts.

Vavoom! :)

I have a head cold, my head feels like a giant balloon.

I'm stressing out on traffic since school started here in Vegas. I haven't gotten to work on time yet this week (I have new work hours, new traffic). It took me two hours to get 21 miles on Tuesday!!

We're having a family BBQ this weekend and I hope I'm well enough.

Let's see...

I'm leaving the lab early today to go "meet a friend from out of town" (actually do my fantasy football draft).

Being the only person in the chemistry building is kind of a satisfying feeling, but that's tempered by the fact that you have to get there at 6 AM to accomplish it.

Oh, and I'm trying to decide if I should go to Boston next month to watch the Head of the Charles regatta. Depends on the cost of plane tickets and other grad school scheduling matters...

Chemist: If you're coming to Boston, let me know -- we can meet up.

1. I got a raise.
2. I'm going to buy an umbrella base today for my apartment.
3. I will have dinner on my patio after work--while there is still sun out so my roommates and I can enjoy the 10 foot umbrella I bought on sale from Overstock.
4. I had the most amazing sushi experience last night at Sushi-Sushi, 326 1/2 S. Beverly Blvd. Bev Hills, CA. OMASAKE Rules!

You can buy Pepsi in bottles the same size as 12 oz cans, that way they have the wonderful plastic aftertaste.

I admit it, I am addicted to BuffaloWildWings Carribean jerk Sauce.

I still haven't seen Sky High, even though Teri, Martin and I have planned it 3 times.

What is a Vavoom anyways?

hopefully Vavoom you have found something to do in the fine city of Boston..I lived there in the Fenway area for five years and loved it. Since I am a major baseball nutjob it was great in that respect as well. I had my dental surgery and it sucks moose balls..pain or being doped up..the only two choices I currently have in life..hope that changes your show Vavoom!
