I Love College

28 02 2009

A selection of videos to bring a smile to your face.

1. An oldie but goodie:  Weezer + Muppets – Keep Fishin’

2. I haven’t seen the movie and I’ve been told not to.  However, THIS video “Ten Chick Flick Cliches You Won’t Find in HJNTIY” is HILARIOUS. I luvs these boys.

3. So I heard this song while driving home today.   The song is so whatev and lame but weirdly growing me…  I guess it just brought me back.  I never thought I’d miss college, but now 2 years out, I guess I do.

If I could go back, I’d play more beer pong.

Remember TGIF? Damn I miss those shows. I don’t even remember what all I watched, but they were the best.  Well, I hope you all have awesome plans for the wkend! Personally, I’m hosting pre-gaming at my apt tonight (Anti-Work themed) followed by bartime.  Ah, I can just taste the whiskey now. mmmmm….  But since we have to while away the day yet, check out the meme below.


After reading about Brookem’s sordid past singing Cher karaoke, I had to try out this short Google meme myself. Especially since it teaches you so much about people. Did you know Brookem eats babies? I sure didn’t. No sirree!

If you try the meme, comment here so I know to come read yours!


Q1: Type in “[your name] needs” in the Google search.
Grace needs an orgasm.

Wow. Uh thanks? That’s a bit personal. Maybe we ought to keep that stuff to ourselves?

Q2: Type in “[your name] looks like” in Google search.
Grace looks like a pretty tough cookie and carries a gun on her hip.

Yea that’s right. Back off all of your or I’ll go all Lara Croft on your asses.

Q3: Type in “[your name] says” in Google search.
Grace says, “I talk, you listen… and leave me comments.”

That’s right. You listen. Just remember who has the gun here, ok?

Q4: Type in “[your name] wants” in Google search.
Grace wants your Danish goodies.

We’re gonna have to interpret that as treasure. Danish treasure. It fits the gun-wielding Lara Croft theme, and the idea of goodies (Ciara style) makes me slightly uncomfortable.

Q5:Type in “[your name] does” in Google search.
Grace does Audrey. *tries to*

Uh wow. So apparently I’m experiementing a bit? And failing in the attempt?

Q6: Type in “[your name] hates” in Google search.
Grace hates Halloween.

What?! No Way! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! You can dress up as random shit, get free candy (or drunk, depends on your age), and ever since I was a kid my dad would go all out with the decorations – including projecting the film Young Frankenstein on the big window in the foyer. All the neighborhood kids would take breaks from collecting candy to sit on our front lawn to watch the movie. The only better holiday: St. Paddy’s Day!

Q7: Type in “[your name] asks” in Google search.
Grace asks to go pee-pee.

Reverting to my 4yr old self.

Q8: Type in “[your name] likes ” in Google search.
Grace likes trees!!!

A lot apparently. Sure, I like ’em. Afterall, I’m allergic to at least 12 varieties and have fallen out of 3 different ones. Yea. we’ll go with that.

Q9: Type in “[your name] eats ” in Google search.
Grace eats fire.

A new undiscovered talent! Woot! And here I was concerned in high school because I couldn’t sing. Who cares?! I can eat FIRE. Screw work. I need to go back to high school and be popular.

Q10: Type in “[your name] wears ” in Google search.
Grace wears an orange jumpsuit well.

Yes. Yes I do. Thank you. Have you been looking at my facebook pictures? I did indeed where a prison orange jumpsuit when I went skydiving after graduation. (Google, I’m concerned about your facestalking. It’s a little creepy.)

Q11: Type in “[your name] was arrested for” in Google Search.
Grace was arrested for using duct tape on kids.

I’m concerned the path this meme is taking. Child abuse? Orange jumpsuits? Guns?

Q12: Type in “[your name] loves” in Google Search.
Grace loves her jeeps.

Rabbit. You mean my VW Rabbit. Although, Jeeps do look fun to drive. But no, I would never cheat on my Rabbit.

Twilight by way of the Fug Girls

19 11 2008

I’m so psyched for the Twilight movie coming out. Seriously. I practically inhaled the books (3x) and can’t wait to see what Hardwicke throws at us. However, like Brandy, I can’t help but laugh at some of the ridiculousness of the book. This leads right into the insanity that surrounds the film & its stars. That said, I just HAD to repost this.

(Fug Girls, I love you desperately for making each day a little bit funnier. Please don’t hate me for spreading your joy! Love, Grace)

Edward & Bella

Edward & Bella

ROBERT PATTINSON: Hello, my angel. [Snicker] I see you managed to get here without breaking any bones. [Chuckle]

KRISTEN STEWART: You know, we wrapped the movie a long time ago. You can break character and stop with the condescending laughter.

ROBERT: No, I can’t. It’s the hair. The unruly, slightly oily Edward hair that’s damp with the sweat of restraint and clammy lust. They won’t let me cut it, and it OWNS me. Is your dress made of sweatshirts?

KRISTEN: They haven’t said you can’t SHOWER, though. Maybe you’re just clammy because all your clothes look a tiny bit tight. And I think your shoe is untied. And, you know, the whole “you need to shower” thing.

ROBERT: God, your blood smells magical. Like sparkles and sunshine and fine wine. I must watch you sleep.

KRISTEN: Do you people see what I have had to put up with? Do you?

ROBERT: Oh, Bella. I love you. I may kill you. You don’t know.

KRISTEN: Not Bella. Kristen. Cameras are not rolling. Lord. I give you two months, tops, before all this breaks you.

ROBERT: You intoxicate me. I AM DANGER. Why do you not fear me, human?

KRISTEN: Oh, I fear you, all right. Trust.

Hilarity on Wall Street

14 10 2008

I just stumbled across the best thing since sliced bread.  Ok not quite, but check out Sad Guys on Trading Floors.  It’s literally photos of the rather expressive traders on various trading floors as they deal with the falling markets – Lol Cats style.  (If you love J-Money’s House recaps – this is almost as funny!)

It’s just about the only way to deal with the Wall Street Crisis right now. I can’t figure out how to add the pictures so go here ASAP!!!

St. Paddy’s & Ramblings

17 03 2008

It’s St. Patrick’s Day, and I’m stuck at work.  Would much rather be at home admiring the beautiful decorations I surprised roomie with this morning.  And drinking a pint.  Instead, I’ve my earl grey tea, a computer, & a shitton of work to finish before wednesday.  Love my slacking? Me too.  So I’m just gonna make notations of my random thoughts all day… Ready?  Set?  Drink! …shit, I mean Go!



Think I nearly cracked a rib reading one of the last Stuff White People Like.  Just about everything in there is cute and I can totally relate (unfortunately/fortunately?) almost every time. 

When white people aren’t working, they generally like to wear Outdoor Performance Clothes. The top suppliers of these garments and accessories include North Face…  The main reason white people like these clothes is that it allows them to believe that at any moment they could find themselves with a Thule rack on top of their car headed to a national park. It could be 4:00 p.m. on a Saturday when they might  get a call “hey man, you know what we need to do? Kayak then camping, right now. I’m on my way to get you, there is no time to change clothes.”  via Outdoor Performance Clothes


Skimming through the sites again I came across this Xanga – Pikerfromthesticks.  Gah. Remember xanga?  I had one, what, 4 years ago now?  I haven’t a clue what it was called anymore.  Xanga was fantastic if only for the fact that you could easily put up whatever the latest music or novel you’re in the middle of.  Just another random insight – before the Face and all. I’d like to think I wrote beautifully but it’s prolly no different than this blog.  However, the writing of this blog is sublime.  The background is a bit distracting, you’ve gotta highlight the text to actually read, and he hasn’t written in months.  But his descriptions are beautiful.  The words and phrasings he uses are both eloquent and real.  I just have to share:

Oh Ed…Anything But Blue…

Summer’s come and gone and fall is finally here.

2007. I couldn’t have dreamed this one in a thousand years. What a strange year. You gave me so much and very little will ever be the same. If I would have predicted summer in April, I wouldn’t have guessed this. I would be dead fucking wrong.

But lately, that’s just fine by me.

I got a place with two friends on the third floor where the skyline appears bright and luminous. Cranes outside blink their anti-aircraft lights in flashes of red all night, nearly indistinguishable from the pinkish hue that casts itself in perfectly striped lines on my bedroom walls. I work in a restaurant down the street where for the first time in my life, I am the minority and that’s just fine by me.

My life exists in a twelve block radius. I own no car or bike, but leg it through the neighborhood at the pace of life, able to take it all in. The leaves have changed and swirl around me on the street which never fails to get a smile. It makes me want to carve pumpkins.

So I started collecting records and reading in so much free time as the TV collected dust. I bought plants and posters and drank whiskey and wine until I had my fill. I kept my pack small and strong, with always enough time for everybody. I hung out in smoky jazz bars with red and blue lights, far, far away from the scene. There was a beat to my days, with the tempo turned up a bit as of late. Give me a walking bass line and snare, something I can turn the lights down low for, pull my hat over my eyes and just groove to.Then the school year started and things got busy, but part of me thought that was okay. Streamlining to a lean existence can be so satisfying sometimes.I want to take up a language. I want to play piano. I want to tend plants. I want to cook elaborate meals from scratch. I want to help whomever I can. I want to fold a thousand paper cranes, just to set them ablaze for the hell of it. I want to walk that highway 300 miles back to the north country. I want to read until I fall asleep.

The warm fuzzy feeling I get now and again is that there’s time to do these things.

So I might as well hop to it.

See you space cowboy.

Archives note England, Scotland, Norway, Belgium… Definately worth a look.  I especially love the posts from London because he so perfectly illustrates the feeling of life there.


Just joined the 20 Somethings Blogger group on last.fm!  Go us! Talk about a wonderful group for a beautiful group of writers.  Props to Deutlich for leading the charge and apparently James for the grand idea.  I did hesitate to throw myself in the ring at first.  I’m ever more aware that I am really putting myself out there on the net now.  The associations between my blog and my music page and the Face… Starts to niggle the worries that the wrong people might stumble across the blog.  But I don’t really see that happening I guess.  Those who I wouldn’t want looking at my writtings wouldn’t think to look anyway.


On one last note, I’m in love with the offset of the guitars and the vocals on Galaxies by Laura Veirs.  Listen to it here:  Galaxies 

That’s all. Have a great St. Paddy’s Day! I’ll toast you all with a Guinness tonight.  Party hard! (And don’t you dare drive home drunk tonight.)
