Ali and I saw the movie The Hangover and we want to start a Zach Galifinakis fan club now. Without him in it, that movie would suck. We loved everything about it except for the small asian man who is funny in some movies but horribly horribly unfunny in this movie. Worst character ever. Other than that, we laughed so loud so many times. Go see it.

1) I've never seen such a delicious looking gyro. It has to be some sort of kebab sandwich on pita.
2) Is it just me and how I've watched movies like the Olivia Newton John movie Xanadu or Mannequinne with Kim Catrall and Andrew Mccarthy too many times, or does that girl look like she's actually trapped in an alternate universe that exists inside this picture and there must be a way to reach in and grab her?
I mean, I'm gonna leave this one alone because I don't want to get stuck finding her true love for her or anything, but I'm imagining that when you DO rescue her from the picture, there's a good chance she might have a voice that sounds like Fran Drescher.
Side note: I recently heard this girl talking on the phone say "has anyone ever told you that you sound like Fran Drescher?" and I thought to myself, "if anyone ever said that to me I'd be so offended." Does this seem like a thinly veiled insult to anyone else?

I think gemini and the remaining cusp and whatever is officially over. I meant to post this picture around my bday but it never happened. Apologies for quality, but not really, I took it on my iPhone. When my mom saw this she was like "omg, they have you down...that's even sort of a Heather outfit!"
Hehe. There is a reason some people call me Heather Onesie.
Doodled this yesterday. I think I want to refine it. It is pretty cool actually.
This kinda makes me want to revive my logo project that never happened last summer. It's a little embarrassing because it never happened, but it was a good idea I guess...you can see it here if you want. It is how I started this blog...If you actually read through the ramblings I think somewhere in there I mentioned that I promised to start my own blog so that I wouldn't crowd that one with stories. Hm, funny how that works out, right?

Speaking of which, [here] are the pictures Ann Hubbard took at my party. This is my favorite one. I still have to scan in the polaroids that Ali took from my bday. We made an excellent totem pole.
Holy moly. The only thing that is redeeming about this is that a "guidance notice" usually pissed your parents off enough that they call your teacher and then your teacher makes you have a meeting with them with all this let's strike a deal with extra work you can do so you can get normal grades on your final report card because you're a smart kid, you just don't do your homework.
I already feel like I will regret posting this. Maybe someday I will tell you all the story of how I almost was kept from graduating but then I came through by writing the big senior research paper I hadn't written, walked, went to my grad night where I was like the only one who didn't sneak in alcohol that wasn't explicitly a total fucking goody two shoes (but I snuck in cigarettes successfully) and then was held captive and forced to have fun there until 4 am and then not 4 hours later my dad and I boarded a plane to Providence so I could go to precollege at RISD and be one of only a handful of 18 year olds there (because it was a program for 16 to 18 year olds and clearly I don't think you had to submit your grades to go) and this is nearly half of the story about how I moved to St Louis. I don't feel like telling the rest today. Today I have dishes to do.
Wouldn't you kill your child if their highest grade was a C and they were in the 11th grade? Man. I leave you with a picture from my senior year before a really geeky an poorly planned "anti winter formal"...I wish I still had that jacket.

My favorite part is in part 3 where the girls they bring home are named Tetris and Jenga. Yes.

These pictures are making me smile right now. Stephen and Jason Peters sharing a bike and taking pictures of each other in the sunlight with Jason's gf Andrea while they were all in Salina, KS at this art fair made me wish I were hanging out with them there too. Matt said they looked super hoosiery while riding the same bike, but I think they look super cute. How did I end up with so many friends with weird facial hair?
Good thing Josh had a fan in his apartment.
Later I am working for White Flag because Fastx3 opens tonight. If you have no other plans, I better see some familiar faces up there.
Here is binge and purge on myspace.
Here they are on twitter.
AND Ashley started a blog of cute pictures [here] too.
Here's a post someone did on the store.
I am supposed to post stuff 0n both sites...I have no idea what to post on twitter...you'd think I'd be good at this blogging stuff by n0w, right? I brought a book to read (which I'll post about later bc it's the best impulse buy I ever did on a book, I'm really looking fwd to it) because I thought I'd just be sitting behind the counter with nothing to do but instead was greeted by a laptop and an internet connection. So much for being resistant to twitter...

Tomorrow: Fastx3. It's what the flyer is for. Two friends of mine got into this show, and I'll be bartending. GO. As I told my family: I notice when you don't come to things.
and because I got an email from a girl I went to college with and it sounds fun enough to post:
THURSDAY (June 25) 6:30-8:30 pm
@ The Contemporary Art Museum
Be a part of a stop-motion video-in-the-making by artist Tony Gaddis and a sweet dance party DJed by Thomas Crone of KDHX’s Silver Tray (aka best radio show is saint louis in my opinion)
*Complimentary beer, wine, and snacks will be served!
3750 Washington Blvd. 63108
SATURDAY (June 27th) 6:30-9:30 pm
@ the intersection of Market and 9th, 63102
The grand opening of CITYGARDEN!
A big 'ol area of downtown Saint Louis (That big piece of land that used to be the Gateway Mall) will now be home to a public collection of contemporary art
*There will be food, drink, live music and performing arts
*AND don't you dare miss the video installation! Curated by yours truly :)
It features 11 extremely clever and exciting international video artists.
Good friend and lovely asset to several St Louis music scenes, Dave Stone, was hospitalized for breaking his leg in two places from a fall in his South City apartment. From what I understand, he was dehydrated and super exhausted from a super long bike ride that day in the extreme heat, and in combination with that, he sometimes gets dizzy spells when he stands up too fast, so he fell somehow and hurt himself.
Anyone that rides a bike knows that this is a terrible thing to happen to someone who rides so much, because it takes six weeks for bones to heal properly. Since race season is barely started, it's a double whammy for Dave.
Bridget just told me that he was just released from surgery and they have him in the recovery room for about an hour and then they'll put him back in his room for the majority of the evening. Needless to say, I don't think the Dave Stone Trio will be playing at Mangia tonight.
If you feel compelled to show some love, call up to room 7488 of BJC, but if you plan on bringing him flowers or anything, he might get released sooner than you think, and in that case, leave a comment and I'll send your well wishes.
