Month: August 2005


I can’t change my font colour though, weird.

According to Officer Garcia, the way you say “Freeze!” in Spanish is “¡Se hace hielo!” (make yourself ice)lol.

Dangle: He always gets a shvitz. I’ve never had a shvitz.
Junior: What’s a shvitz?
Dangle: It’s like a Jew sauna.

I had dinner with a couple Delts (as in Delta Tau Delta, as in the fraternity David Schwimmer was in) the other day. They were really nice. They told me I should stop by the house sometime and hang out.

Susan and I went to the boys’ soccer game yesterday because I wanted to see Casey play. I had the same predicament I was in last week…I thought the guy I saw was him, but I wasn’t sure. But I’ll be darned if I do that AGAIN so I just said “Casey!” and it was him. He doesn’t play anymore, because of his back, but he’s a coach now. Cool. I still hate soccer and I still say it’s against my religion lol. The other team was VICIOUS. They just kept kicking and punching our guys and NONE of them were taken out, they just kept on getting cautions. One guy even got two of them [in the first period]. But a bunch of our guys had to be taken out since they had been punched or kicked. It was like watching a freaking hockey game. Holy cow. And I found out the other team was from a Christian school. Yeesh.

There was one day last week where we were let out of Theories of Personality 10 minutes early because our professor didn’t like the way the desks in his next class were arranged so he wanted to leave early to go fix them. It was a 50 minute class. And it’s a psych class, so it started late too. Hooray for 35 minutes of instruction!

Last night I went to DQ with Susan, Christy, and Mike who is from Crete and hates Mr Neubauer (I had to ask haha). Then Christy and I decided we were going to watch the first season of Reno, so we went to Family Video (it’s hard to boycott when it’s the only video store in town…but I found out today there are five video stores in Mattoon) and they don’t carry it. Another reason to love them. So then Christy and I spent literally an hour trying to decide what to watch. We finally decided on Pretty in Pink, since neither of us had seen it before. Susan said she had homework to do but I KNEW she was going to wind up watching it with us, and I was right lol. We were all very disappointed with the movie.

I have a four day weekend this weekend. I think four days is too long, so I vote we get rid of [this coming] Saturday.

So I got a call today from someone on the University Board because they wanted to interview me for the position of comedy coordinator…and THEN he realised it said I have a class on Tuesday nights so he said they can’t interview me, but they would keep my application on hand for next semester. Blah. On the application I had to list a new and creative idea I would bring and Jenni Stukin gave me a wonderful idea that I molded into my own (but of course will give her credit) and I am posting it on here, so if they steal it, I can take them to court lol. We would have a contest for people to submit sitcom scripts and the winner would assemble a team of writers and we would cast it and perform a weekly sit come either at 7th Street Underground or get it on WEIU. Good idea.

So my Social Work class seems to be getting in the way of everything, including our next floor meeting, and I don’t get to vote on floor rules because of it. Well here’s the thing (about how pathetic I am lol), they only offer that class on Tuesday and Thursday nights (once a week). So it was either take it on Tuesday nights this semester and miss Reno 911 (we have no VCR), take it on Thursday nights this semester and miss The OC, take it on Tuesday nights next semester and miss American Idol, or take it on Thursday nights next semester and miss The OC. I opted to take it on Tuesday nights this semester, because Reno is the only show that will be on again later that night. And it turns out the season finale is next week. So that is why I can’t switch my Social Work class to make way for the U Board. Oh well. It’s their loss.

Does this mean I can change my colours now?

See, the people with Premium are getting ripped off, because they are giving all the Premium stuff to us now too. They’re even going to have free picture hosting in the near future. Sooo glad I never gave in to that.

Fey to sit out ‘SNL’ with baby this fall but will suit up soon

August 1, 2005

Fear not, Tina Fey fans. The “Weekend Update” co-anchor said she’ll be gone from “Saturday Night Live” this fall, but not for good.

Dismissing speculation that she might call it quits to concentrate on motherhood, Fey said over the weekend that she only intends to sit out a few weeks — “as few as I can.”

Her first child is due in early September, not long before “SNL” begins its 31st season. “I’m sure I’m gonna crawl back in as soon as I’m capable,” said Fey, who also heads the show’s writing staff.

“Update” co-anchor Amy Poehler isn’t sure who, if anyone, will fill in on the fake news desk. “I think it’ll just be a few weeks of figuring that out and seeing what works for everybody,” she says.

Meanwhile, Fey reports that pregnancy is going well, and she’s still working on a sitcom, “Friday Night Bits,” she’d like to star in and produce for NBC. The pilot will be shot “as soon as I look normal — if I ever look normal again.”

My answer to “What to do with Bin Laden?” Well, this sounds good to me. It would be true poetic justice:

Killing him will only create a martyr. Holding him prisoner will inspire his comrades to take hostages to demand his release. Therefore, I suggest we do neither.

Let the Secret Service, Navy Seals, or whomever covertly capture him, fly him to an undisclosed hospital, and have surgeons quickly perform a complete sex change operation.

Then we return “her” to Afghanistan to live as a woman under the Taliban.

Anthony Agnoli called me the other day to hang out. Aww. Yeah sure wait til after I leave to call ha.

I didn’t buy a dorm t-shirt when I got here, but I wanted to buy a floor shirt. Well our floor shirts say “I gave my word to stop at third. Taylor 3N keeping abstinence alive in 2005.” That’s not what abstinence is and that bothers me that that was approved as a shirt. So much for buying a floor shirt.

The problem with living in Taylor Hall is that I CONSTANTLY have “Taylor the Latte Boy” stuck in my head. Okay, so I don’t have a problem with having John Tartaglia’s voice stuck in my head lol.

You Passed the US Citizenship Test

Congratulations – you got 7 out of 10 correct!

You Are Likely A Forth Born

At your darkest moments, you feel angry.
At work and school, you do best when your analyzing.
When you love someone, you tend to be very giving.

In friendship, you don’t take the initiative in reaching out.
Your ideal jobs are: factory jobs, comedy, and dentistry.
You will leave your mark on the world with your own personal philosophy.

Dear Eastern Illinois University:

Thank you for the wonderful T3 internet, even if it signs everyone off in the middle of the night. Now please take down the firewall so I can download from Limewire.
