A long look back
The result to this quiz wasn't surprising at all. My birthday's card is the Devil, and the birthday book that keeps on showing up in my life over and over again preaches at length about how my birthday is ruled by the Devil card. The only thing I wonder... I said that I was worried about others thought of me, and don't know where the ability to laugh at myself came from. Nothing I've read about that card plays into that. Whatevah. But who am I to blow against the wind, or question Cheshire215?

DEVIL
DEVIL/PAN
"the joker, worker, stabilizer"
You are gifted when it comes to protecting yourself
from judgements cast upon you by others. In
fact, you are not easily thrown by external
reality. You have the capacity to work and
play hard and to laugh at yourself. This is
the card of humour and sexuality (it is the
only card with genital symbols).
"Devil" spelled backwards is
"lived", and it is very fitting. You
live with humour and have a stable foothold on
life. Of course, you do love setting the
occasional bit of mischief into play.

So, yeah, life's been interesting. I had a little party on the 11th. We got two platters from the amazing Middle Eastern place that periol introduced me to, and two platters from my usual cheap sushi place. Tons of liquor, and I dressed up like a pirate. The toilet got messed up, so I wandered the streets of Hoboken with my roomie's siblings looking for a plunger. No plunger at any of the stores we hit, except a little mini-plunger at CVS. Luckily I took off most of the pirate garb, so I was just a colonialist looking for a plunger instead of a crazy plunger-wielding pirate. Tons of wild cards came to the party. Some kid who I slashed in high school with a comb and his girlfriend, Pete's crew including KG. The smokers hung out on the fire escape, Pete played guitar in his room, and our music selection left plenty to be desired. Everyone and their grandmother brought alcohol, leaving us with a huge collection of fine liquors. The little alcove in our living room is now full of bottles, as is the upper shelf of our freezer. I broke out the black vodka, and made tons of margaritas until we ran out of mix. The sushi flew, and a good deal of the Middle Eastern terrorist platters did as well. The chairs I got weren't destroyed, nothing spilled into the electronics, not that much of a mess at all. Great times were had by all, fun little gathering, yeah. Unfortunately, a few people who said they would show didn't. Like my best friend from grade school, ex who I saw at the memorial, two people Pete wanted to try setting me up with, etc. Oh well.


The weekend after that was windexcowboy's party. A small intimate gathering, with good scotch that redvector wasted, much to mrfantasy's chagrin. Was good to see people, was a fun time.


The next weekend runstaverun and kikibird went out with my roomie and I to check out some of the CMJ festival. We went to Arlene's Grocery, where we saw Oranger and Spiral Stairs & Kelley Stoltz. Or I think that's who we saw. The former was fairly average, until the two smokers left. The second song they played after that was amazing, as were the next couple. Out of nowhere, they got into a really awesome groove. The second band, well, drove us away really quickly. Maybe it was their desire to overuse the fog machine, maybe it was the hilarious commentary, I don't know. So all in all, we spent more time talking to the bouncers than watching the bands. Hung out with Joe Truck, who was an awesome guy. Seeing my Maiden shirt, he brought up this tattoo, and invited us to have a tattoo party at some point. Cool fella. I walked down the street to Ludlow and Stanton, to a random cart. I have a weakness. When I'm in the city, I need to hit a cart. I could never work in the city. Little did I know what I was getting into when I visited this humble cart, and I ended up dragging everyone else to visit the cart. He's got a great little blog, and I've asked for permission to set up a syn feed.


The monday after that, runstaverun, Pete, and I went to see VHS or Beta. Like I said, an absolutely amazing live act. Then came Halloween, and johnstevensaul's random raging insane party. Everclear and games and nutty times. I spewed out a few lines about fallout and shoes dropping while on the balcony, but as usual no one listens to Russell Sprague. All said and done, I had a good time. I just care for and worry about some of my friends.


And, well, other things that I've already posted about happened. Good times, like CS Halloween. Not to mention other random things, like walking behind a happy Hoboken couple on the way to work while the female tries to convince the male to read Harry Potter. The male listens, and tries to convince the female to read Lolita, explaining it and proclaiming how amazing it truly is at length. Parking with a million dollar view, loving Hoboken more and more every day, playing lots of video games, encouraging my roomie to do the same, lots of working out, good times. Friday I had to take the train to work, where an guy I remembered from my carless days took my ticket. Later, I heard another conductor making comments about a monkey or referring to someone as a monkey or something. It looked like the guy had a bloody nose, and joked about how the monkey punched him in the face and gave him the bloody nose. Odd Halloween costume. He offered elderly people M&Ms that he was feeding the stuffed chimp, and had it punch tickets. As I was departing the train, a passenger said ``Looks like someone's being creative with their costume'' to the other conductor.

He replied with, ``Looks like someone forgot to take their medication.''


AntiTrust is entertaining to watch now after reading the /. review and seeing dozens of advertisements for it on /. for weeks. Why not make Synapse open source? Hah! RMS doesn't look anything like Ryan Phillippe, ane neither does Mitnick.

Feeling: good good
Listening to: AntiTrust
