Text Messaging

For some reason it's not working on my phone, I'm not receiving any of my texts from 2 people now.

The End is Coming

Did any of you grow up in Christian families were they believed that the end was very near. You know were one day a Christian and non Christian would be seated side by side and all of a sudden God would take all the good Christians to heaven. Then their would be 7 years of torture before the end.
I haven't really gone to church much as an adult but Jon said to me yesterday, "do you remember when the end was coming." I think the Christian community used to talk about that a lot and not so much anymore, I wonder what happened.

Taking a portrait

My friend Calvin is wonderful at taking portraits of people, here's an article he wrote regarding.

Monday, September 26, 2005


Check out these pictures of Brad and Angelina with their mock family. For some reason I was very fascinated with these pics, they are both such incredible good looking people you kind of just want to stare. Both of them are kind of off too, a little weird and maybe that makes them even more attractive. Like these pictures of them hanging out like Mommy and Daddy to all these kids!!! Jennifer Anniston commented oh how Brad was insensitive to do a magazine article so soon after their divorce, and I can't help but agree.
Take another look at Angelina, she is too skinny, she kind of looks like skin and bones in one of the pictures. You kind of look at them and think they are awful people how horrible for them to be together, but at the same time you're sort of fascinated by the fact that they don't appear to care what anyone thinks and in some way that makes them even more interesting.

2 Funny Quotes regarding marriage

Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence.

If you want your spouse to listen and pay strict attention to every word you say -- talk in your sleep.
(Oh how true is this!!)

House Music

This is a new thing for me, listening to radio on the computer. This is really good background music, it has a beat but no real lyrics so you can have a conversation while it's playing. I put it on the house speakers through the radio transmitter, it will be perfect for the next house party.

I'm sick of boys

Okay I come from a house of 2 brothers who I get along with great but now that I have a very fun loving cousin it's becoming boy central. Now that they are all together they constantly speak of women. Girls they like, girls they hate, girl friends they have, girlfriends they don't have, girls they wish could have, the list goes on and on. Today their was an big discussion as to the benefit of synthetic boobs and how they are the best thing on the planet and ever guy likes them. Okay enough already I've never really felt that insecure but I think by the end of the week I'm gong to need special counseling. Help!!!
Okay I feel better I just needed to vent.

My Grandfather Melton

My Grandfather died about 5yrs ago and he was from Greece originally. Having my cousin here is an incredible reminder of him and Kostas has very similar mannerisms. It's hard to describe but the way he speaks is similar, the things he accentuates in the tone of voice, its very familiar to me somehow. I'm reminded how Europeans are unique, the things they consider important are different. Take careers and work for example, my uncle asked me how my job was and I said good, he then asked, "are you happy" we don't ask the here, it's usually oh well how much can you make if you keep doing that.

This picture pretty much sums up my night, Kostas and the elders just relaxing on Granville while Brad got completely hammer. Brad was on his own little planet along with the Bus load of drunk Trinity friends he brought along. Posted by Picasa

I have a new nickname, "The Manager"

Because I'm slightly bossy, well someone has to keep everyone in line and organized. So now my cousin is saying, "okay manager" when ever I tell him to do something. I'm going to try to be more tackful but it's hard. :)

Hurricane Rita

Quentin and I are having a wonderful sit in front of the tv and just watch the news or whatever comes on tonight and we start watching yet another hurricane. For some reason though I sat their watching for awhile and thought oh their just replaying old footage from hurricane Katrina and CNN has shortened the name to Rita. I mean I don't know what I was thinking but anyways ANOTHER FREAKING HURRICANE. Those poor people I feel terrible for them.

Mars is becoming increasingly bright until Halloween.

Why I Hate Beauty

This title caught my eye, it's basically a male complaining that the reason he's lonely and single is because he has unrealistic physical expectations of a partner. Regardless it points to the argument of comparison stating you only look as good as who's standing next to you. It's an interesting read but from a woman's perspective I don't think what seems obvious is necessarily true.
