When Will I Be Hearing Words I Want To Hear?

Buried treasure. Pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The lost city of Atlantis. My Jeff Buckley, Doves, Bob Dylan and Coldplay cds that I lost ALL IN THE SAME DAY. I have found something better than all four of these things combined. 3hive (Thank you Ms. Mac!) Dooce's husband is a part of this site, I found it when she mentioned it in an interview she gave. Bill, I think you would really like this site. It features mp3's that you can download from a shitload of different artists. I've already downloaded 16 of them since I found the site about 20 minutes ago. I can already tell I'm not going to sleep tonight. So if you want to check out some awesomeass music, go to that site. Now. That was my public service announcement for the day.

I had an interview for a job at the library on Tuesday and found out today that I didn't get it. Of course it sucks ass that I didn't get it, but I'm even madder that I don't get to call my mom and finally tell her that I got a job. How dare you take that away from me, library. I just want to make my mom proud goddamnit. Is that too much to ask? It's pretty much official that I will be going to Ireland with $7.00 in my pocket. I can't wait.

To top it all off, I'm not even drunk tonight. CAN THIS DAY GET ANY WORSE. I've already decided that tomorrow I will get a job, lose 50 pounds, AND get a boyfriend! All in 24 hours! Don't doubt me! Or I won't stop using exclamation marks!

I have a new obsession - The Cosby Show. I never really watched this show until a month or two ago, and now I watch it every night. I really don't know what else I would do without Nick at Nite. I hope there are some other Cosby show aficionados (christ it took me a long time to learn how to spell that word) because I have a question. The episode tonight was an earlier one, and there were four kids; Denise, Theo, Vanessa and Rudy. But in later episodes, isn't there another older sister, the one that gets married to Alvin and has the twins? Did she just magically appear in the later years or what? I could look this up on the internet, but you know how lazy I am. I need answers people, and I need them now.

Christ, I just read that the National Guard arrived in New Orleans tonight with orders to "shoot to kill hoodlums". Not that I blame them I guess, shit is getting scary down there. You would think (and wish) that people under these dire circumstances would come together to help each other out, but apparently that's not the case. I was watching some Dateline-20/20-Primetime Live type show yesterday, and they were interviewing some guy in Mississippi who's house was destroyed and now him, his wife and 2 kids were homeless. The guy interviewing him asked: "Do you feel any remorse about making your family move here?" As he was asking that, I'm thinking, asshole - he didn't move them here, knowing what would happen, why would you even put that thought in his mind? The guy answers, "It's the only thing I can think about. It's the father's job to provide for his family and I failed", with the saddest look on his face. Of course I started crying. Jesus Christ, how could you ask someone that question? I wanted to shoot the interviewer. But anyways, I hope things start to stablize there soon and the people start acting like decent human beings towards each other.

It's 3:30 am and I'm not even remotely tired. Goddamn you 2 1/2 hour nap. I have a long ass weekend ahead of me, so I better accomplish a thing or two, like get a job or work on my thesis paper, but we all know that won't happen. Something I can do however, is get drunk a lot. I leave you with this picture:

A moose copping a feel on my mom in Vermont. It's her lifelong dream to see a real moose, so her and my Dad are going on a "moose hunting" trip in Maine where they have a 90% or so chance of spotting one. Do they know how to have a good time or what? Happy Labor Day Weekend, bitches. Posted by Picasa

The older sister is presumably at college, where she meets Alvin, during the early years of the show. At least when she shows up that's how they explain it, if I remember correctly (yes, i am older than dirt).
Can't wait to get home and DL some sweet tunage.
Found you by GodDamned Jenn.

Hiya Katie, if you look on your box where you make your posts, there should be a little Green Globey looking button. Highlight the words you want to use as the link, click the button and paste in the URL you want to link to easy peasy!

Also, your Gilmore Girls obsession is not sad at all. I am quite jealous, you have so much to enjoy while I am living on repeats until the new season starts and my lovely husband can procure it for me! Did you see the end of season 5???? Like, OMG!! Who's pathetic now, eh? ;-)

Hello Umfufu.....your new site discovery is even better than the world pretending Christopher Columbus discovered America. You rock rock harder than stone! Keep on truckin', be good and enjoy your macromedia flash!

when my brother and I were little, our parents drove us across the whole country on a summer road trip (back in the good old days of cheap gas). Our mission was also moose hunting. My brother especially wanted to see a moose. I was a little older and understood that there were none throughout New Mexico, Utah, Arizona and so on. When we turned north in Southern California, and headed back east through Colorado and Montana, he was so mad about not being able to see a moose that he refused to look out the window when my mom spotted one in Yellowstone. That made him even more angry.

Ummm, when you go 'moose hunting' isn't that going to make seeing a 'live moose' difficult? Sorry about the library but that's a job for the secretively kinky or entirely repressed. You can do better.

When and how did you loose all those CD's in the SAME day? Were you drunk?

I'm really glad you found that site. You can start sending me music, pronto.

Sorry about the job. You'll find something though, Ma. I mean, you're Katie for fucks sake. People just don't know what they're missing.

The Cosby's are great. I see you're coming outta your cave again, Caveman Katie.

Your dad just stood there and let the moose feel your mom up?
