upgrade

so the ol’ notebook is working once again 🙂 one would think that i’d be blogging every five minutes like i used to. but veoh got the best of me. been watching arrested development, an awesome show. rumors of the movie based on the tv series should push through. plus, only limited commercials over at veoh (and particularly enjoying beyonce singing upgrade you over and over).

before i start blogging, i would have to do some upgrades to the blog. maybe bigger text would be nice, haha! the white-against-black text is too much to handle as it is. would have to update the links – get rid of dead links, add new ones i visit often.

we’ll see when i get around it. in the mean time, i’m finishing up season three.

vicky pollard in the city

not too many people know about little britain – one of the funniest show ever, lots of crude humor. and one of my favorite character has to be vicky pollard.
according to wikipedia, vicky is

“An exaggerated caricature of a teenaged Bristolian chav who, when challenged about something, comes up with gossip that has nothing whatsoever to do with whatever predicament she is in at the time. Vicky Pollard went to school in the first and second series. In the first series, she was accused of shoplifting, became pregnant (and swapped the baby for a Westlife CD) and was sentenced to borstal where she bit someone called Jackie (a counterpart of Vicky played by Walliams). In the second series, she stole from a supermarket and smoked on a bus. In the last series, she was hired to babysit and had a wild party in the house while the parents were away. In Little Britain Abroad she was shut in a Thai prison for smuggling drugs and her mother, Shelly Pollard (played by Dawn French), made an appearance in court saying that Vicky got into a bad crowd at the age of three. In Comic Relief does Little Britain Live, supermodel Kate Moss played Vicky’s twin sister ‘Katie Pollard’, declared that Vicky was the ‘pretty one’ and Katie was the ‘easy one’.”

for my cousin brit’s 15th birthday, her mom took her to new york city and i, of course, played tour guide. the three of us walked like we’ve never walked before. my sneakers can attest to that statement.
as part of her NYC experience, she was given a challenge – to walk around the city looking like vicky pollard. and take pictures. good times.

so this is 27. depressing. anyone aware of the club 27? members: kurt cobain and jim morrison. how uplifting.

i did have “improvements” from last year. got a new awesome job, been to amsterdam, opened a savings account AND a 401K account, joined a gym, and my dead notebook is getting fixed.
