it's alive!
March 5, 2004

just too tired to really write anything this early. so, since i actually liked today's friday five, we'll for a little of that:

What was...

1. ...your first grade teacher's name?
Fuck if I can remember that. Pffft.

2. ...your favorite Saturday morning cartoon?
I always liked Thundercats and the Disney cartoons. Wasn’t so big into the Warner Bros. empire until I could really understand the jokes, so I must have been around 20 or so. Didn’t like Voltron, but I did like She-Ra. Then again, altogether, I really didn’t watch that much teevee when growing up. Hmph.

3. ...the name of your very first best friend?
Su-san. 1st grade, Laurelwood Elementary school in the south bay. I think I called her Susan for quite a while before she set me straight. How embarrassing.

4. ...your favorite breakfast cereal?
Nutri-grain with almonds in it and Shredded wheat. We didn’t have junk food in the house. Not that I really missed it, but when I went to my friends’ houses to spend the night, I always looked forward to the next morning when we could gorge on Coco-Puffs or Honey Grahams. After my first bowl, the sugar rush would be so bad I would want to puke. I don’t know how anyone (everyone) got through their childhoods eating sugary cereal. It just doesn’t seem like a v. good idea to me.

5. ...your favorite thing to do after school?
I always just liked to go to people’s houses. They had the siblings, the toys, and the sugary after-school snacks. I wasn’t really big on having anyone at my house, as I always thought they might be using me for something. After my mom had a little talk with me when I was around 9, I realized that the girl across the street and the carnies that lived next to her only hung out at my house so they could swim in our pool. So yeah, going to other peoples’ houses was a way to make sure I wasn't the one that was taken advantage of. Or something like that.

wake me when the day is over.


One of my co-workers used "snarf" in an email a few weeks ago and it's stuck ever since. Should I be happy about or resigned to my geekiness that I knew exactly what that was and my other co-workers didn't?

Snarf snarf!

ps - She-Ra can kick He-Man's ass any time!
