the Night Shift

Well I am on the night shift now, working 6-midnight at the Barnes & Noble at Fashion Island - very cool job very cool people so far. I am currently at everyone's favorite late night hang , the infamous Cafe Ruba, which has definitely lost it's Costa Mesa angry punk / goth edge , and while not totally mortgae bro yet, perhaps soon. Why look who is here- it's Jared ( I cannot recall his LJ name) getting caffinated so he can study astro physics or whatever he studies. There is currently an Evanesence video playing ,but a Melissa Etherige record on the sound system, and a whole table of nice looking young people smoking a hookah- they're very clean. Speaking of the Beatles, we played that new Geroge Martin Beatle thing about 20 times at work tonight, and most of it is pretty impressive- it is much better than I thought it would be so I picked up a copy- you should too. Robert Altman died? Everyone should see his very best move and one of the best American movies of the seventies- The Long Goodbye ( California Split is pretty good as well.) Ok people be good to each other and I will see you at Diedrich's on SUN ( I work Mon eve)

Gee, thanks Lauren

Jury Duty

The apotheosis of tediuim is spending 6 1/2 hours at the Santa Ana Superior Court buildingn waiting to be selected for a jury (my group was dismissed when our prospective trial was "resolved" before jury was selected. The female O.C lawyers seem to have a fashion role model in Ann Coulter ; I thought how cool it would be to have loose_joints here in OC.....

Because Nico did it

You scored as Cultural Creative. Cultural Creatives are probably the newest group to enter this realm. You are a modern thinker who tends to shy away from organized religion but still feels as if there is something greater than ourselves. You are very spiritual, even if you are not religious. Life has a meaning outside of the rational.

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

Ah, Christmas in Newport Beach! At 8:30 tonight I thought, erroneously as it turns out , that the boat parade might be wrapping up anb Hef and Hollly and Briget and Kendra are back in their stretch Hummer limo and courteously on their ways out of the harbor area, making it safe once again for us residents. Nope. At 8:30 people were standing in the middle of the Lido Bridge like Romereo's zombies, literally yelling at cars to watch out for their kids ( these people invented children you know) . Okay I can deal with that for a while so it's off to Lido Isle Starbuck's where I sat and chatted with the locals BIBLE MIKE AND THE LOOMER. Finding thid more than I really wanted, I decide to head off to Border's , but not before a guy and his blonde bitches in front of Pavillions shines a goddamn flash light in my eyes and says "HEY BUDDY SLOW THE FUCK DOWN" ( I was stopped at a stop sign) , Politely, I replied Merry Christmas to you too ASSHOLE, so he kicks my car door ( my drivers side) as hard as he can twice. God bless you too buddy. So now I am back at the Lido Starbuck's waiting for people to just go home so I can get on the island and PARK somewhere ( as of half hour ago I could find no visible parking anywhere on Lido Island. SO next time you are down this way , come to the Lido Starbucks and get a coffee from my new pal Ashley and tip her well ( unless BIBLE MIKE and THE LOOMER are here) -
