i just got home from the gym, and aside from the normal post-exercise euphoria, i'm so damn thrilled: i ran for 12 minutes straight with nary a bit of knee pain. i have 'patellofemoral pain' which is essentially a kneecap tracking problem. this guy explains it very, very well (thanks, emmie!). about 5 years ago i went to physical therapy for it and it completely alleviated the problem, but i haven't exactly kept up on the prescribed exercises since then. over the past few months it's come and gone but tonight was most definitely a milestone.

"ScienceDaily (Sep. 22, 2008) — When it comes to sex roles in society, what you think may affect what you earn. A new study has found that men who believe in traditional roles for women earn more money than men who don't, and women with more egalitarian views don't make much more than women with a more traditional outlook."

if anyone finds $45 on the street on santa clara between webster and park, i miss it and would love to be reunited with it.

stupid ID and cards in my pocket pushing it out of the wee pocket that's supposed to be more secure. way to ruin an otherwise great night of bicycling and hanging out.


um, ew.

if i was a stripper, in another life or something, my performance song would definitely be "secret skin (sex & salvation)" by pig vs. kmfdm.

i'm in sacramento right now, my dad's cousin had a 30th anniversary party. Let me just say, it's awesome when your 85 year-old grand-aunt, on the topic of gay marriage, exclaims, "who cares? They're not hurting anyone." there was something else quoteworthy but I've had a bunch of wine (it's not even dark out yet!) and I've forgotten whatever it was!

is usually pretty fantastic... but there's a subsection I wasn't aware of until a friend sent me a link to it today. these are awesome:

i know i'm not the only person who's ever felt this way... but, sometimes, it just gets so hard to remember that i have friends and family who love me, when i'm feeling as disconnected as i am right now. it usually doesn't even happen for any good reason; say, going a day (OHNOES a whole day) without talking to the people closest/most important to me. i start to wonder how important i really am in their lives, or other similarly senseless ideas along those lines. i'm normally a very secure person, but i still go through small bouts like this every so often. thankfully they tend to be brief. i think social traumas during my formative years are in no small way responsible for these episodes.

somewhat related, it's times like this that my envy for those of you in secure, happy relationships is strongest. i really, truly believe & agree with georges sand that "[t]here is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved." i completely and utterly buy into the idea that if you have that sort of foundation in your life, you can achieve/overcome anything. basically, the thing i want most out of life is someone who will love me wholly who i can love the same in return, who i can trust completely and who would never choose to do anything that would hurt me, with whom communication will always be open and free... to be the last thought on the other person's mind before falling asleep and the first thought upon waking up, and vice versa. why am i such a hopeless romantic? also, how did i end up such a stalwart optimist, even despite the ways in which i've been lied to or had my trust broken? it's kind of amazing.

i wasn't sure whether to lock this entry for comments, or to make it friends-only, but, eh....fuckit.

due to no small influence of alcohol, i'm doing something with my facebook profile. i've had it since beta or so when they were only letting college students or whatever join. add me! i don't know how to link to it to get you to add me, but, basically, if you know me you should be able to find me.

also, i've realized there are a number of you whom i feel i should have contact information for, but i don't. comment pls & gimme your cell # and i'll give you mine. comments are screened!

the end!

I'd heard a of a study recently (within the last 6+ months?) that described effects of the birth control pill on genetic compatibility checks that people do essentially when swapping spit. It had posited - in a wild overextension of the study's conclusions, if you ask me - that divorce rates >50% could potentially be correlated with the fact that ~50% of women are taking birth control pills when entering into a new relationship. I've been meaning to look for that report again, and lo and behold there's a new one in a similar vein released today by livescience.com:http://news.yahoo.com/s/livescience/20080813/sc_livescience/thepillmakeswomenpickbadmates;_ylt=AgJhcmPXlRsQTFfDU9Xidwys0NUE

i'm post-tastic today.

great america a few weekends ago got postponed. it's rescheduled for this saturday! i highly encourage you to join us if you've been feeling like visiting ye olde america of greatness lately. so far it's me, my sister, teresa, jeff, and a few other people who are for sure going. COME JOIN US. :D my sister and i will likely be getting there between 1-2pm and leaving between 5-7pm as we've got a bunch of other things going on that day, but feel free to get there earlier and meet up with us in the afternoon if you'd like. i'd be tickled pink! email/message me if you need my cell phone #.

and, on a related note, the reason that my sister and i aren't staying too late at the park that evening is because i'm taking her out that night for her birthday. we're either going to bootie at the dna or to ruby skye. signs are leaning towards bootie but it's still pretty up in the air. come out and buy her a birthday drink! :)

here's an interesting, albeit short, article if you're interested in mammalian (reproductive) behavior, endocrinology, and comparative evolutionary biology: http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2006-08/ns-tsl080206.php

there's a better quality version on imdb.com but you have to watch an ad first.

mmm. goosebumps.

is it normal work-culture to split lunch costs according to the number of people there? twice this week i've encountered situations where people (sometimes myself, sometimes not) end up having to pay waaaaaaaay more for their meal than they should have because one or two other people order a huge amount of food. example: just went to pizza with 7 other people, 2 of whom each ordered an entire medium pizza. sorry, dudes, but i don't think it's fair for me to pay $17 to split the bill 7 ways (one person was treated to lunch) so i can contribute to your heineken & medium meat pizza when i only had water and a personal vegetarian pizza without any cheese.

and now, from mystery men:
"all i'm saying is that when we split the bill three ways the steak-eater picks the pocket of the salad man."

(cross posted w/ myspace...i don't know if that's good or bad or neither)

want to go to great america?

how about this sunday, 7/27!?!

be there, or be...somewhere else!

there's a number of us going; message me/post if you're interested in meeting up and need my contact info.

PS: tickets are expensive at the gate ($51.99) but cheaper if you buy them online ($39.99-$44.99) depending on how much in advance you purchase them:
to get the cheaper price i believe you have to buy them no later than Thursday.

this evening my sister was perusing on demand movie choices. having chosen the pirates of penzance and deciding that was a poor choice within about 5 minutes of starting the movie, she left it up to me to pick something for her, the only stipulation being that it not be a depressing/dark movie. while scrolling through the free movie choices, i asked her if she'd ever seen the iron giant. to my shock and dismay, she replied in the negative! so, clearly i had to remedy this!

it just finished about 20 minutes ago, and i think my nose is finally becoming unstuffed.

god i fucking love that movie. everytime i watch it, it makes me cry like a baby. I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. sigh.
