Cool Mom and Is-something from Battle of The Bones

My enthusiasm for the blog is waining. Can you tell? I'm just in such a different frame of mind these days. I used to desperately, hopelessly, need a relationship in order to feel complete. I had the sudden realization that I'm totally complete without a significant other, and really, relationships, or the pursuit of relationships, has been the bane of my existence. These days, when I consider women 'in that way' it's from a very different perspective than before. I'm just sort of like 'She might be fun to hang out with or do it with' but I'm not concerned with getting any further than that, and really, I'd rather not get any further than that.

This weekend, I went up to Central Point, OR to volunteer at the Battle of the Bones, a barbecue festival. I volunteered to be part of the 'kidz zone,' a position that consisted of enforcing a no shoes policy in the bounce house and asking kids trivia questions for prizes. I enjoyed the trivia part more, because it allowed me to interact with the kids, instead of just sitting by a bounce house entrance (Which looks sort of like a vagina) and watching kids play. During my volunteer time at BOB, I met two women whom I was attracted to.

The first was a cool mom. Her son (who was about four) was wearing a shirt that said 'I Am A Rock Star' so I asked him what his favorite band was. He said The Killers, and I said 'Cool! They covered a song by my favorite band, Joy Division!' and his mom was really into the whole conversation, talking about music he liked and all. I enjoyed spending time with her a lot. At one point in my life I might have been depressed that I didn't get intimately involved with her. Now I'm totally happy that I got to spend time with an awesome person, and while I'm sure she looked pretty stunning in her underwear, just hanging out with her was nice too.

The second woman I met was working at the booth for some science museum in Ashland, OR. She was a really scrawny nerdy looking woman, and the first day of BOB, I told her that the science booth was really awesome (which it was) and she gave me a pitch about the museum and that was that. I was sort of depressed, really, because I felt like I hadn't come across as a cool dude to her. Then I remembered something one of my head doctors once told me, that emotions are rather fleeting, and as long as you don't try to over analyze them and worry about them, they typically go away after a short while. That made me feel a little better. Also, I put the whole thing in perspective. I've talked about my ex-girlfriend, Lauren, now and then. Lauren was a really nerdy woman, and not in a way that made her interesting. There's two types of nerds&#151 those who embrace being different, and those who embrace being normal. Lauren definitely tried as hard as she could to be as normal as she could be. She didn't see any value in being unique, and that's why she didn't understand why I did the things I did. The girl at the science booth was probably in the same boat, and that meant she would be fun to hang out with sometimes, and she probably looked really stunning in her underwear, but if she didn't realize how cool I was there's nothing lost in that.
I went to talk to her the next day, because there weren't any kids who wanted to use the bounce house, and it couldn't hurt anything. Her name started with 'Is' but I can't remember the rest. It was a common name. It wasn't like 'Island' or something weird, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was. Anyway, she lived in Ashland and worked at the science museum and I asked her if I could call her sometimes and she said she was 'attached' which I thought was a sort of funny way of putting it. It made me wonder if she was saying she was 'attached' because she just found my uniqueness totally unattractive. It might have been the moustache. I have a big ol' Lemmy moustache right now, and as cool as it looks, it turns off pretty much any woman who aspires to be totally normal. I did shave for the sake of a woman once (Lauren) and believe me, I wish I hadn't. I've dated woman before and I've grown facial hair before, and if I can't have both, sorry women, I'm keeping the Lemmy.

Toni Lynn Bishop

So when I was in high school, there was a woman who helped out the Berean youth group. Her name was Toni Lynn Bishop. She was very pretty, and she sort of looked like Parker Posey, only differenter. Anyway, I wouldn't say I had a crush on her, per se, but I did think she was a fox.

Last night, I ran into her at a party. She's married with children now, and hot damn is she still a good looking woman.

Whitney pt. 2

So I was talking to Corinna, who is the woman who introduced me to Whitney. Corinna was my first girlfriend when I was a frosh in high school. We don't really see each-other in that way anymore.

So I was talking to her, and I mentioned that I kind of wanted to get with Whitney, and Corinna said that she is sort of not in a good place to start dating right now. I'm glad Corinna said something, because I don't want that kind of drama in my life.

You know what causes drama in relationships. People think that they're broken, and they think that love and affection is the only thing that can fix them, but it's only going to make the problem worse. If you feel broken, the only thing that can fix you is yourself, and the first step is to realize that you were never broken in the first place. Real talk.

I've been sort of not excited about doing this blog, because I just launched a music blog and I've been sort of caught up in that. Also, I've been feeling super lethargic these days. I'm not totally sure what the deal is, but I'm going to hopefully change that soon. Finally, I'm not sure that I mentioned this, but I've been way less interested in romantic endeavors that I've been in the past. Like, at this point, I really don't want a girlfriend. All of a sudden that just doesn't sound like fun at all.

Anyway, I met this girl named Whitney the other night when I went to a bar with my ex-girlfriend from high school and her friends. It turns out I met Whitney real briefly before when I was on the snowboard team in high school. I wound up spending the night in a tent outside her house, and I reflected on the idea that I was just attracted enough to her to make a no strings attached type of relationship really awesome sounding. When I got up the next morning, I said goodbye to her, and I didn't see it anymore. Maybe my hormones are messing up or something. I just haven't been interested in much of anything having to do with women.

Cute Staff Member at Kidder Creek Camp

There's an evangelical Christian summer camp that is operated kind of near where I've been staying with my parents. My father suggested that I apply there, and I really didn't want to, because working with a bunch of born again kids sounds pretty awful, but I decided I would at least give them a resume. When I showed up, there was a really adorable young woman with a ton of freckles working on a laptop outside the main office. She was also friendly and helpful. Now I sort of want to work there.

Jennifer Connelly

I forgot to mention, that I watched Ang Lee's Hulk (2003) and I thought that Jennifer Connelly was really cute in that. She sort of creeps me out though, because I grew up with Labyrinth (1986) and that scene where she's yelling at the baby in the thunder storm always scared the crap out of me. But I'm not scared of that scene anymore.

As long as I have the light on.

Stephanie Sanditz

In case you haven't noticed yet, I watch a fuck of a lot of television. This afternoon, I finished watching the first season of Strangers With Candy, and in the last episode Stephanie Sanditz plays a stoner who is really cute. It sort of made me wish I had a girlfriend who was a stoner. That's not an easy thing to make me wish for, so in conclusion, she was cute enough to make me wish for something that I really don't want.


Also, when I was looking for a picture of Stephanie Sanditz, I found a picture of Kristen Schaal, and she's really cute too. She could play a stoner I'd want to date.

Tamara Feldman

I've be watching Smallville with my father. We're on the second season. There's an episode where a woman named Tamara Feldman plays a girl with a lot of stereotypical Native American jewlery and flirts it up big time with Clark Kent. She's hot.

Here's a small picture of her from the episode. She sort of looks like the Tomb Raider.


And here's a picture of her that's actually large enough so that you can see what she looks like.

Woman From A Best Buy Picture

I'm unemployed. I was reading this article on big box companies that are hiring, and I found the woman in the picture from Best Buy to be good looking.


I actually worked at Best Buy for about six months. I've tried applying there a couple of times since. They don't call back, and maybe it's just as well. In spite of all the pretty girls who work at Best Buy, the job wasn't that exciting.

Illeana Douglas

I'm watching the third season of Arrested Development and I thought that Justine Bateman, who played Nellie, looked like a goyum Illeana Douglas. Then I was thinking about it, and I realized that Illeana Douglas is actually a very good looking woman.


She was really good in To Die For (1995). Did you ever see that one? Also, a quick Google search suggests that Douglas is only 1/8 Jewish. That's what I get for doing racial profiling.
