ought to be cleaning

Just what does eminem mean when he says "two trailer park girls go 'round the outside"?

I'm so naive. I'm also a bitter, bitter person. Most of you know I have a passionate enjoyment of Trading Spaces. It comes on at 4pm. I just have to remember to NEVER, EVER, EVER turn to TLC prior to the moment of 4pm. Becuase the show that's on before it is "The Wedding Story". "The Wedding Story" makes me want to vomit. Even just seeing it for 5 seconds. Vomit. I think that speaks to my bitterness, but really it also speaks to the fact that that show is nauseating.

Yesterday I played tennis, and my knees hurt. I'm really hoping that I didn't actually damage them in the accident and not know it. Then later Pam made dinner, and it was really good. I'm really happy about this home-cooked food trend in my life lately. Did I mention that I made my mom and dad dinner last weekend? Yay.

Car's still in the shop getting tons of work. Sigh. I just can't wait to have it all set and registered and I can drive, drive, drive it. Yesterday while I was in the McDonald's getting lunch waiting for it to be inspected, there was this guy with a huge mole on his face. But NOT ONLY was it a huge scary mole, but he had a whole set of long hair growing out of it. And when I say long, I mean like 6 inches long. I almost didn't eat. But I was really hungry. I guess if he wants to cultivate his mole hair, who am I to complain?

Ack. Coughing fit. Must recover and call Becki. I might go to Portland later this summer.

Oh yeah, one last thing: I have this huge desire to move to england. But I hear Ireland is easier to get a job in. Sigh. I could always try to join the Air Force like dad said. But then I'd probably end up in Japan or some shit.

Also, last night: wonderful phone conversation. This morning: awful phone conversation. Figures!!

Being bitter is ok. Just let it pass with time. Breakups do that to you.

Wow. England. I'd hate to see you move so far away, after having just met you.
Hope you get another good phone call to up the average.

England is such a total pipe dream...

And I did get a really awesome phone call later to tip the balance. :)

Well, worse things could happen to you than being stationed in Japan. I think. Maybe....

Ok. I take it back. Japan sucks!

If the people I knew who loved Japan and would like to go live there for a long time could trade places with the people I know who actually have to live there, it would be perfect. :-/

Well, on the one hand, eminem could be sort of invoking the spirit of Marshall MacLuhan, who had a goofy-ass semi-hit with his "Buffalo Gals Go 'Round The Outside" dance ditty. MacLuhan, pioneer of punk, was the brain behind the Sex Pistols, Bow Wow Wow, and the whole "global village" idea. Eminem may be making a sly statement about media manipulation, personal promotion, and "any publicity is good publicity."

Or, and I really suspect this is the case, he might be talking out his ass.

Hope you're having fun at Star Wars tonight. It was a groovy flick.

Meercat, you crack me up!

Upon hearing this, I am struck with the possibility that Eminem may be actually going the sly direction... His real name being Marshall Mathers. And odd Marshall-Marshall connection? A smart Eminem (Eminem = M and M = Marshall Mathers)? Wiggy.

Dude, he can't be that smart. Can he? I mean, I guess he /could/. He's certainly /clever/ about certain things. Weird.
May. 18th, 2002 12:43 pm (UTC)
Dang, that was the best answer I could have hoped for for a question that could have easily been interpreted as rhetorical. :) I thought maybe he meant something sexual or something and I was just too naive to get it.

Car crash soreness?
I was sore off and on for weeks after my accident, it went away. I wouldn't worry too much about a few aches and pains unless they show no signs of improving.

Re: Car crash soreness?
Thanks - I think you are right. There's no big deal. Knees feel fine now!
