I Confess!

I totally forgot to post a confessions thread on Friday, as I was so busy having a birthday!

Anyone else want to confess?

    1) My left butt muscle still hurts from bowling. Lame.
    2) Remind me why sangria isn’t the answer to all life’s problems, again? Because that was good.
    3) I don’t really care that my house is messy. Normally, I do care. Now, the best I can muster is some mild concern that I should care.

    4) Also, I did tell a story involving the words “Grant” and “vagina” on your birthday. That’s probably not in the best of all taste.

    5) Also, “Fitz” and “Cinnamon Bun”.

    You slay me. Was Grant telling a vagina how he was talking to Spider Robinson the other day? I don’t think I can even formulate a theory about Fitz and the cinnamon bun.

    Sangria is a vacation from life. You can’t have your whole life on vacation.

    My thighs still hurt from bowling. Also lame.

    I assumed Grant fitz a cinnamon bun in someone’s vagina. That fitz, right?

    My confessions:
    1) While Norwegian cookie-monster death metal does exist, and while I love the idea of it, the music itself doesn’t actually do much for me. I confess to comic exaggeration.
    2) That said, the wrongness of this will burn a hole in your brain:
    3) I am sick and would sell my soul to go to bed right now, do not pass GO, do not collect $200.
    4) One of the big drawbacks to being an atheist is that I have no soul to sell. That’s why I’m not in bed. Yeah.

    Rachel: It’s not Hurratorpedo, is it? Their cover of “Total Eclipse of the Heart” is half Stomp, half Muppet Show, and half not good with fractions (kid-friendly, even if there’s some intentional skinny-dude butt crack involved):


    1) I have a week off work still, and should be selling stuff on Craigslist, but I don’t wanna have to leave the West End to do the deal on anything, so it kinda holds me back when it comes to closing. Anyone wanna buy a cheap (oldish) laptop?

    2) I’m supposed to do two podcasts tomorrow, and haven’t planned more than two songs thus far. Plugging stuff in for the show? 15 minutes. Getting a playlist together? 1hr.

    3) Thanks to the previous comments, I now have a mangled version of Grace Jones’ “Pull Up To the Bumper, Baby” in my head, with lyrics regarding baked goods. No, I’m not sharing.

    4) Tate’s eating spaghetti for dinner tonight, and I took his shirt off so I could just wipe HIM down instead of having to wash a sauced sweater.

    5) I just giggled out loud (GOL?) when I said “wash a sauced sweater” to myself, quietly.

    John – no, no, it’s honest-to-dog Norwegian cookie-monster death metal, accompanying… er… I can’t even say it, it’s so wrong.

    In re: old, cheap laptop—How old? How cheap?
    (MonkeyPants is the new Marrakesh! I’m selling cinnamon and slave girls!)

    I laughed all the way through the A and E documentary “Jesus Camp.”

    I FOUND THE IMPORTANT IMMIGRATION DOCUMENT last week while I was packing to go to my uncle’s funeral. It was in one of the first boxes I shouuld’ve searched, but somehow I neglected to. Its loss has cost us hundreds of dollars and countless hours of angst.
    Somehow I feel worse having found it, now that it’s been replaced and everything’s taken care of, than when I realized we’d lost it.

    For my own finding of Tom Waits vs. The Muppets (no, not really, but close), see http://www.geckotemple.com/blog and find the flash audio player thing.

    Cheap: like borscht? Also somewhat fast list borscht. Decent little browsing/blogging laptop. About five/six years old, I suspect. Would have to read it’s underbelly to find out.

    Waaah! Those videos truly embody the richness of the internet! I think I might have to take up Bollywood dancing. And in the Hurratorpedo video, I’m pretty sure that is my old stove, front and center.

    Stephanie, I just googled Jesus Camp. It sounds pretty scary.

    Elswhere, that’s Murphy’s Law in action, right there. I’m sorry that happened. I know that bad feeling of which you speak. It’s the “If only I wasn’t such an idiot, this wouldn’t have happened” feeling, for me.

    I haven’t actually cooked a meal since Thanksgiving dinner.

  13. By Liz, October 15, 2007 @ 11:03 pm

    John- awesome!

    Beth- awesome, also. Sometimes you need a break, even if it’s your thing.

    No, no. Grant was being Grant after Ripley was born, and asked me in all seriousness whether my vagina was all big now.

  15. By Arwen, October 16, 2007 @ 12:12 am

    The Fitz/Cinnamon Bun will just have to stay mysterious, for reasons of mystery.

  16. By John, October 16, 2007 @ 10:38 am

    I think Grant could be central to a reality TV show, if Fox could find a catchy way to encapsulate the phrase “Oh my god did he just say what I think he just said?”

  17. By Liz, October 16, 2007 @ 10:56 am

    (smacks head) Of course, Arwen. There’s my famous ability to forget things, even shocking ones. It’s like an X-Men power, only sucky.

    John, if Grant’s name was “Whaaat?!??” the show could be eponymous.

    I would love to see a reality show staged as a party, full of boring normals where Grant is the secret bizarro party guest. The first person who DOESN’T give him a WTF-slap and manages a (5 minute? 10 minute?) conversation wins a date with him. And another beer. And the picture of his ass that is still in my house.

    That counts as a confession, right?

  19. By Liz, October 17, 2007 @ 9:40 pm

    Sarah, that counts. You should probably pitch that to some TV exacs, too.

  20. By sarah, October 18, 2007 @ 3:29 pm

    Now I want all of you to confess to how many times you’ve seen Grant this week, operating by the standard “say his name three times and he appears” rule.

    I confess that I would cheerfully watch that show.

    Or one where all you have to do is fit him out with a wee little camera and microphone and just plain let him talk to people. As long as I’m not one of the people.

  21. By cheesefairy, October 19, 2007 @ 11:03 am

    wow, I don’t think anyone’s ever confused me with sarah on the INTERNET before. sweet! 🙂

  22. By Liz, October 19, 2007 @ 1:33 pm

    Waaah, because your names are so similar!
