Good things!

Okay, so I had a terrible, no good, very bad morning, and then I went to bed and slept for eight hours, amazingly not being disturbed by loud neighbors who like to talk loudly in the driveway right outside our bedroom window, or screaming children at the Y daycare across the street, or the phone ringing, or anything like that. Yay sleep.

Then Bruce got home and we walked over to the college so he could sign up for this class he's taking with his friend. This is the friend who's trying to get him a job...not sure if I've mentioned that before. But Bruce's current job will not exist in May, when the firm dissolves and they no longer need a whipping boy an office boy. So Lubo is working in this office building doing networking stuff and it's a long story, but he will hopefully be in a position soon where he can hire someone, and that someone will be Bruce. I really hope this works out.

Anyway, so Lubo is taking this networking class on Saturdays at the college and Bruce wanted to take it with him, and he went last Saturday and the teacher gave him an add number, but he had to go over and see if he was still registered from when he thought about taking a class last semester. Answer: yes. So he got enrolled, then we went over and bought his book. $80. Ack. But if this helps him get this job, then it's worth it.

While waiting for Bruce at the bookstore, I drew some more John & Rodney chibis. I didn't bother to color them and they're on lined paper, but whatevs. They're cute.



Rodney was supposed to be pointing at something, but it looks like he's flipping the bird. I suppose that works, too. XD



Also, Ruth just said she thinks the tattoo machine turned Rodney into a monkey and he stole John's clothes and boxers, and the scary thing is? That's kind of what I was thinking, too. XD So maybe this angry Rodney is angry at John after getting turned back into a human, and then John is trying to kiss and make up and Rodney won't have any of it.

Yes. I think that's it. :)

And everyone liked my drawings and more people want some, so that is happy-making, too. :D

This is hilarious and the truest thing ever.

Here are five new (to me) songs that I've really been liking recently.

Beyoncé - Irreplaceable
There are a lot of Beyoncé and Destiny's Child songs that I like. I like Beyoncé's voice and the music is catchy. This song is really great, though. It just makes me want to sing and dance around, and I wish Erin was here so we could go karaoke, cause I'm sure they'd have it there.

Exile - Michi
This is the new Exile single and damn, it's good. It's a ballad and it really reminds me of a Hirai Ken song, though I can't put my finger on what.

Justin Timberlake - My Love
I missed this when I listened to his album, cause I only saved SexyBack off of that and ditched the rest. But then I heard it again Friday and really liked it, and since I downloaded it, I've had it on a small playlist and been listening to it a lot.

TegoMass - Miso Soup (English Version)
This is a new Johnny's duo made up of two of the guys from NEWS. There's a Japanese version of this song as well, but I really like the English version, which was apparently released as a single in...Sweden or somewhere. It's a ballad, but catchy. I find myself singing it all the time. Their English is pretty decent, too. I can actually understand most of what they're saying.

Gym Class Heroes - Cupid's Chokehold
OMG, so catchy. This is another one that makes me want to sing and dance around, or maybe just jump up and down a bit. I want to hear more from these guys.

I have a nice hot bowl of homemade split pea soup, and last night I had some of the new Ben & Jerry's flavor, Stephen Colbert's Americone Dream (vanilla with chunks of chocolate-coated waffle cone and caramel), which is omg so good and I kind of need to go buy more now. :)

Your interpretation of John's hair is really hilarious, man.

It makes such a great exaggerated feature. XD He's like a little raddish-headed chibi or something.

I agree with Cim on the hair, and with Ruth and you on the story behind all the chibis. They're so funny, n'aww. hi! :-))
