feeling like a pointer sister

there's nothing more exciting for a bunch of intoxicated beasts than knowing that a bag of greasy food is on it's way. oh i'm so excited. and i just can't hide it.

i got a brand new pair of rollerskates

well, i'm temporarily back in business after the computer debacle of 2006. CompUsa most certainly took the gold in "Uselessness" last week.

so i've decided that i'd like to thank the universe for choosing me to be one of the people that completely ridiculous situations happen to. yes, it is often frustrating. yes, i often feel that people don't believe the stories i tell them because they sound mildly insane. yes, it makes me wonder how on earth i'll deal with such random nonsense when i'm elderly. but in the meantime it makes for an amusing ride, and isn't that, in big picture mode, what we're all after anyways?

one of the most recent incidences to prompt that thankfulness outburst was that whilst at dinner last night, the owner came to our table to snap photos of our dinners. move your glasses, get your forks out of the way, missy put down that shrimp -- the man needs to take some pictures! so if you're cruising up steinway street and see a pic of a nice plate of ceviche, that's my pinkie in the corner. ah, fame.

and i'm convinced that if the song "in the summertime" was piped through the streets 24 hrs a day, this world would be such a happier place. like care-a-lot, but without the cloudmobiles.

Take me downtown, I'm just looking for some tush.

I awoke this morning to a very hungover sissyphus and had a zztop dance party.

During tush, Sissy said, "We didn't drunk dial our parents last night did we?"

This is perhaps the major flaw of our existence.

more later.

Nyquil, Straight Up.

The wonderful thing about living with your sister is that there is never a short of entertainment. Despite the fact that our landlord is still holding our cable box hostage and i spent an entire sick day locked in this apartment we still have found a plethora of things to do. Our standard is, of course, opening a few bottles of wine and watching some Arrested Development (which if you don't watch, you should and then perhaps the smartest show on television will be saved. start here ---> This usually results in us hurling AD-influenced insults at each other from our respective couches. It's all fun and games until Chrissy plays the Gangy card. Honestly, aside from the total lack of warmth, pearl-wearing and teetering around with dirty martinis in hand (straight up) i do not see the similarity. That said, this evening we were able to even surpass our normal forms of entertainment. Perhaps my favorite new game is Whats-the-landlord-doing-at-our-door? Does he have our cable box? No. Did February 1st come already? OOPS! Sorry guy, we're holding out on that rent payment till we see some satellite. Or maybe we were just so consumed with revoking the existence of January2006 that neither of us noticed February sneak up on us. Sissy also started up a rousing game of Find-the-valium. Compelling, yes, but to no avail. Some other prescription medications have turned up but now it's my turn to play Hide-the-meds-from-the-panic-attack-ridden-sister-who-has-oral-surgery-tomorrow, a fun game, but exhausting nonetheless. To cope i've had to self-medicate and it seems to be working as there now appears to be two of Bear.

with merlot & nyquil for all <3>

you're too fabulous to be true!

i was called "pussycat" today -- it completely made my day. one might think that the term is demeaning, or passe, or silly even. but no - hearing it is actually a swingingly shagtastic experience. (Bear gave me that term...god knows what it really means)

speaking of fabulous, i had dinner last night at English is Italian. while the name drives me crazy (yes, haha, how ironic mr. chef, your last name is ENGLISH but you are ITALIAN!), the place was terrific. (apparently, i used the term "tasty" about 30 terms while describing dinner to missy when i got home. i didn't even know i liked the word "tasty"). the food was excellent and the the ambience was awesome...especially for it's locale, in an otherwise unexciting section of midtown (40th & 3rd). it's a great date spot, so boys take heed. i'd link to their site, but my computer is're all smart though, so i'm sure you can look it up on your own. (do we even have any readers?)

i had a few more topics i intended to address, but i'm an old lady and its nearly 11 and i've spilled wine all over my wifebeater, so its my bedtime. but i will leave you with my newest fave quote from a yet-to-be-released film:

"why do you love me?"
"because everyone else is so boring."
