Dirty on Purpose is the new Bishop Allen

I've discovered this band Dirty on Purpose

I'm now obsessed with them. Sorry Bishop Allen, it had to end at some point.

Also I just returned from vacation. It was awesome and sucked.

I was the victim of a mugging attempt on the subway platform. That was fun. I was totally freaked out. It helped a lot that the construction workers also waiting for the train did nothing to help me. The one good thing that came of it was when I broke down crying at the Jetblue check in counter they held the plane for me and made sure my bags got on the plane too.

It also sucked that my aunt is neurotic and had rules about everything. certain color napkins had to be used. I didn't really obey the rules and it didn't make her happy. Oh well. Also no one was into drinking. Also my ex text messaged me all weekend. Also I got my period. None of that was fun.

What was fun was my 13 yr old cousin thinks I'm fantastic. I knew some day I'd be someone's role model. his mother is a little worried that he chose me to hang out with the whole time.

Seeing all my cousins and their families made me realize that I'm done with the whole single thing. I want a family and a house now with little babies. Also I'm pretty sure I'm over New York and the muggers who live here.

Disclaimer: I may change my mind on all of that tomorrow.

I'm furious

The saga continues:

So as you may have read it was brought to my attention that during the two years of employment at my current company I have yet to be paid over time. So I email a few people and they assure my no worries, it'll all be taken care of. So I'm amiable about the situation, people make mistakes. Granted this is a huge mistake that someone made I'm willing to look at it like "oh well, i'll get a huge paycheck, sweet". So I wait and this is where you read my last journal with the link above. I got 11.6 hours. Well I calculated at least 16.6, not including the past year and a half. So at a MINIMUM I'm supposed to get an additional 5 hours in this weeks paycheck. So when paychecks arrive today I tear mine open to realize that #1- I did not get paid for the 5 hours, not to mention the ton of hours from the past 1.5 years and #2- They just added to 5 hours on to my time worked, like it was on last weeks paycheck. WTF??

I'm fuming. At this point my view is someone majorly f'd up by setting me up wrong in the system. I was ok and willing to let it slide as long as I was compensated and compensated in a timely manner. None of that is happening. Now I'm getting HR involved to get to the bottom of this.

Dont have a blog if

your ex reads it and can track down your up coming vacations. it can only lead to no good.

ugh.. no crying on vacations. there has to be a rule about that.

hook ups yes, slutting it up a bit yes, crying over ex boys no.

Celebrity look a like

We all know of my celebrity interest (that's code for im a little bit too interested in any thing trashy and celebrity). In any case when I discovered My heritage face recognition I was sold. What it does is scan your face and then tells you what male and female celebrity you resemble. Now let's face it (no pun intended), this program is 100% useless. Have you ever been like "Gosh I wish my computer would let me know what celebrity I look like because I can't figure it out myself". No. And if you answered yes to that email me because we may be soul mates. In any case I apparently resemble both:

Jessy McCartney/Who I resemble if I was a boy with highlights and looking to be in a boy band

Jessy McCartney/Who I resemble if I was a boy and 14 yrs old and trying to be sexy

Selma Blair/Who I resemble if I was hot and had black hair

Selma Blair with bff Sarah Michelle Gellar/Who I'd resemble if I had a friend who looked like Sarah Michelle Gellar. But I can't stand the 3 name celebrity thing so in reality Id never be friends with Sarah Michelle Gellar.

I have no will power

My office make out partner was in the office yesterday. I had decided that our shenanigans were going to end. However that plan didn't seem to work out quite like I envisioned it. It went something like this:

office boy: so im still slutty and i don't want you to think im a jerk because im not.

moi: blah you're only 10% jerk and 90% irresistible.

office boy: ok so lets meet in the supply room and cop a feel. Ok?

moi: awesome, i'll meet you in there.

us in supply room groping at each other like a bad spanish soap opera.

ugh. but secretly i love it, i can't help it.

This is so odd

Putin kissed boy 'like a kitten'

MOSCOW, Russia (Reuters) -- Vladimir Putin's decision to stop a small boy as he walked through the Kremlin and kiss his stomach was prompted by a desire to "touch him like a kitten," the Russian president said on Thursday.

The five-year-old boy, identified as Nikita Konkin by the press, was clearly stunned by the kiss and speculation over Putin's motivation has run wild in the week since it happened.

Curious Internet users propelled the issue to the top of a list of questions put to Putin in an interactive Web cast.

"People came up and I began talking to them, among them this little boy. He seemed to me very independent, sure of himself and at the same time defenseless so to speak, an innocent boy and a very nice little boy," Putin told the Web cast.

"I tell you honestly, I just wanted to touch him like a kitten and that desire of mine ended in that act."

The Izvestia daily, which tracked down Nikita, discovered that he had refused to wash after that kiss.

"I just liked him and he liked me very much. I want to be president myself," the five-year-old told the paper.

Putin was shown by state television chatting to graduates of military academies before he took a walk through one of the Kremlin's courtyards, often full of tourists.

He stopped and spoke to Nikita who turned away shyly. "What is your name?" Putin asked, kneeling down in front of the fair-haired boy and holding him by the waist.

"Nikita," the clearly shocked boy answered, looking from side to side.

Putin then lifted the boy's shirt and kissed him on his stomach. The Russian president then patted the boy on the head and walked off through a crowd of astonished tourists.

I don't know about you but this smells weirdly of child molester to me. I'm getting the shivers just thinking about it.

Funniest sentence of the day

Yeah, for a scientist, I have a strange level of comfort with magic.

Statement made by co worker who is not a scientist.

Bad Choices

This weekend I sat and pondered over my bad choices I've made recently. I figure since I'm in the office I'll list them in a bullet pointed manner.

  • Deciding not to get tickets to Belle and Sebastian on the 4th. Most of the people I like to hang out with (and some that I don't) got tickets to the free show. I was anti free show. I thought it would suck and be crowded. However what I failed to realize is if everyone is at the show no one would be around to hang out.

  • I let office make out boy read my blog. Yeah I have no explaination for why I let that happen.

  • Taking two hours out of my life to watch "me you and everyone we know". I'll never get those hours back. Now I know why I don't like movies much. I could have been reading a book instead.

  • Watching the Project Runway marathon. Do I really need to watch gay type drama on TV. I don't get enough in real life?

I'm just going to hit the reset button on this week.

On a more upbeat note I have vacations galore coming up! I can't wait to sit on the beach and read and read and read.
