My Morning Jacket

April 1, 2012

   I attended a concert last Friday at the Greek Theater in Berkeley.  Safe to say, my favorite band right now: My Morning Jacket.  I couldn't tell you who the opening act was… I was too busy texting somebody with a 707 number was going to buy my extra ticket.  Blue hat, if you are reading this, thanks for paying me back – That made things pretty worthwhile!

Let me first describe the ambiance of the evening.  It was misty and foggy.. felt like rain when I biked there from Oakland. I parked my bike in some wet bushes by a Berkeley dorm.  I paraded through the line of people through the bag check (blunt hidden in wallet) and into the GA show.   The Greek was pretty cool.  LOVED the fact that it was GA and I could get a good seat (standing spot). The Eucalyptus lining the "arena?" added that touch of authenticness needed for a night show in Berkeley.  Before I knew it MMJ was on -felt like I didnt even have to wait for anything.  I was not prepared… I let 2 songs pass before I opened my ziplock baggie with my Grape-a-licious blunt.  Others around me were lighting bowls and dancing, as Berkeley-ians do.  No one expected it when I lit up my Chronic.  It took me a minute to get through it (or almost all the way thru.)  Pretty soon I was in my element and the show was getting good.

Dancing. Guitars. The bass player was clever to watch. the drummer was off the hook.  Their slow jams put me into a stoner trance. Best songs: Touch Me I'm going to scream Pt. 2, Highly Suspicious (live was unexpected and highly enjoyable), Sec Walken and Smokin' from Shootin. Also everything that they played from "Tennesse Fire" was awesome too bc that album is ridiculously TIGHT.

Next time this band comes to town, I recommend checking them out. It was for sure a quality show, a treat for a MMJ fan.




Webisodes suck

Today I came home from work full of energy.  I biked home from Rockridge, usual scene.  BARTed it.  Gotta do it again tomorrow for the last day of the week.  Do-able. I’m going to wake up earlier to make things easier on myself.  6 Am.  Anyway, I came home, went to the pool and tried out my new “face mask” goggles, or Hancock glasses as I classify them.  They are cool…although a little bit of water leaked in today.  I am going to have to tighten them.  Came home and got the internet working again.  Dylan ordered Indian food, we fired up the vaporizer and then he started watching a Dr. Phil special on a cult family.  Instead, I got things popping in my bedroom and now I’m writing this blog. 

I would love some ice cream… I even had a scoop during lunch today. Jamoca Almond Fudge from Baskin Robbins.


I titled this “Webisodes” suck bc I tried to watch the office online and it only showed a short clip when it said it would be a full episode.

all over the place

Hello,  It’s been a while.  Im sitting in my chair at work slouced almost to the floor. I would love to take a nap on my desk right now but am afraid I’ll fall completely asleep.

I met a new guy and we had some fun together the other night playing Rock Band. & we went out for pizza and salad at Jupiter, one of my fave restaurants.  Our pizza was so tasty.

I just took a 5 min nap on my desk… wow will I make it to 5 tonight? Its 3 pm now. Yowzer.. I think I might step outside and make a phone call to wake myself up a little bit.

February 8, 2008

Good Morning,

It is Friday – Well the week has been fun for me. I began training someone who is taking over my position at work.  It is ok. I’ve been telling people I’m being promoted, which I hope will actually happen.  I no longer am tied to the front desk and phone- so I can run around the training grounds now.

I’ve been eating lunch with Academy 41 which was fun earlier this week, but I do not want to go there today- I am sick of “the chase” bc I have been exchanging glances, light conversation and getting rides home from one recruit in particular. I made him brownies today and am including a note with my phone number on it. If he doesn’t have the idea already that I am interested, he will now.   He is getting the brownies because he did me a rather big favor of digging up a bunch of his binders from training and let me borrow them to make copies.  I am a little nervous to give him the brownies, but there it is simply a thank you gesture and I have my choices are limited in how I want him to know I want to go out with him.

I have butterflies in my stomach.. .gaah I am nervous!!! Gee What Happened, I thought I was chill.


My fantasy world is not meeting my expectations in reality. 

First disappointment; Men.. In General and specific cases,

My new dude sucks at calling. Granted he is busy but I’d rather not be the one who calls all the time.  I don’t know if he has time for my hopes of him falling in love with me… I don’t see that happening if we hang out so sparsely. No complaints on When we hang out. We click, there is a spark and I like him a lot! But it’s just he’s a Gemini and doesn’t do well at keeping in touch.

Second disappointment, and we all saw this coming was my crush at work, YOSH, quote, “has a girlfriend and is in love”. Found this out from a reliable source.. Well whatever! There goes my daydreaming of dating a hot firefighter (one as hot as he is anyway!) But since Love doesn’t last— yeah I’m saying that— all is not lost. Maybe when I leave here in ____ time ?? I will still slip my business card in an inter-departmental mail envelope and ask him out. Or not! Bc he is 22 and will probably break my heart anyway.

I can’t help but be depressed. I’ll be gorging myself on Valentine’s day with treats bc I think I deserve to be spoiled and I just have to do it myself this year.

Student loans have just become a new part of my life.  First letter I see and there is allready a late fee (Typical). Dealing with this shit is time-consuming. I’ve wasted a good amount of minutes on the phone with SallieMae, even though my account is Online! Sure you can do it online hassle free, but there are things there that you would never know to do unless you called and had somebody tell you.  You’d think if you signed up for AUTO-DEBIT, where they deduct from your checking account automatically on a monthly basis that you wouldnt have to make a manual payment for the first time.  Well, you do! So I done did it just a minute ago.  This is just the start of the next 10 years of life where this will be deducted from me! If I had known this was going to come up on me like this, would I have even gone to college???? hmmmmmmmmm….

I’m just putting $ into perspective here. My monthly payment is a round trip fare from Oakland to Boston.  I could go there every month, but no I think I’ll continue paying off my loans instead 😛 

 Aside from loans, I also have Rent and bills to pay. Groceries to buy and so on….

 In my other worlds,

love life is weiiirdddd… I met a dude who is supah cool who I like ALOT! This hasn’t happened in a while and we’ve gone out two times. He is a supaaaaaaaah cutie!!!

secondly an anonymous firefighter was asking about me and says I’m cute.. who could it be..

Thirdly, the guy I sweat big time is across the street at this very moment and he smiled at me today 🙂 I haven’t seem him in months but he is still supah HOT!

This is what I don’t like to do at work:

-Accounting, bills

-Managing bosses credit card

-dealing with IT

-reading fine print so it gives me a headache

I also don’t like being scolded by my landlady bc she hasn’t received my roommates’ rent checks which were dropped in the mail a week and a half ago! Wtf is going on?!!?


January 9, 2008

People need to stop:

Asking me if I have a car yet,

 Asking me if I’m “permanent,”

liking me if I do not like them (romantically),

bugging me,

asking me to do 10 million things,

jerking me around on the phone
