Not looking forward to going to the stupid diet class tonight. I probably gained weight because I had a cold for several days and therefore could not exercise as much as I usually do, plus that jerky guy started coming back on Mondays so I think I may switch to another day after tonight.

Had a really nice time at the movies last night and at my favorite cafe today (except the latter was super crowded). Oliver says he can't go to the live MST show because he has to work those days.

Just had a big cup of oolong tea, looking forward to MST night tonight. Apparently there's going to be a live MST3K show in SF on 1/31 and 2/1 (my birthday!) but I'm not sure if I can go or not. The website for that theater is really screwed up and I can't buy a ticket online because there are big surcharges for using it plus weird shit like having one ticket cost more than two. I'm considering just cutting out the middleman and going over to the theater day after tomorrow but I will talk to Oliver tonight and see if he has any thoughts on this.

here's a meme:


Get out your iPod and prepare to be amazed by the power of music to predict what you will, or should, do in the new year. Shuffle your playlist and set your controls for random play. Let it play a new, randomly selected song for each question and write down the title as your answer. Don't pick and choose — take the first song it gives you!









1. So, how would you best describe 2019?
Because-the Beatles

2. What should your new year's resolutions deal with?
Sun King-the Beatles

3. What's in store for you this spring?
Braided Hair-1 Giant Leap featuring Speech, Neneh Cherry and Ulali (my hair doesn't braid well at all)
4. This summer?
Cogele el Gusto-Chico Alvarez (Google translate tells me this means "take the taste" in Spanish. Maybe I'll try some food I've never had before?)

5. This winter?
Shining Star-Earth, Wind and Fire

6. What about this year's holiday?
Cajuina-Caetano Veloso (Cajuina is a cashew apple drink popular in Brazil. I wouldn't at all mind visiting Brazil on vacation)

7. Will you find true love this year?
True Faith-New Order (I'm an atheist so I'm kind of side eyeing this....)

8. If you do, what will be "your song" with your new love?
Sister Morphine-the Rolling Stones (oh god, haha)

9. How will things go with your friends this year?
We Are the Dead-David Bowie (oh shit)

10. What will you worry about this year?
Let's Spend the Night Together-David Bowie

11. What will be a pleasant surprise this year?
Spazz-the Elastic Band (what?)


12. What will cause you problems this year?
Born in Chicago-the Paul Butterfield Blues Band (most of these make no sense)

13. How will school be this year?
Raspberry Beret-Prince (I'm not in bloody school)

14. How will things go at work?
Here Comes My Girl-Tom Petty (huh??)

15. Will you get rich this year?
Bouba (Cool)-Dady Mimbo (my source material on this song says Dady Mimbo is from Cameroon and "the song warns the listener to be cautious of foreigners who come bearing false promises". I don't understand any African languages and just liked the way the song sounded)

I've had a cold for a few days but it's getting better. I had one last month too. It's annoying. I never used to get colds, now I get them all the time.
