What's your favorite type of party?

Well, mine happens to be a tea party, so Let's Tea Party! well, my favorite type of party isn't really a tea party but that was my witty segway (sp?) into a new band I just heard of today. I listen to a podcast called the Naked Scientists where they go over science info. One of the podcasts featured Geek Pop which is basically Woodstock but on a virtual stage instead of a physical one and with "geek" music instead of rock. One of the bands featured is "Let's Tea Party". They've got some pretty good songs on there. If you've got some time, stop by Geek Pop. The site is a little wonky but just go there and click on the play button for the highlights and you'll be able to hear Let's Tea Party (they're the first band featured). You can also listen to some more of them at their myspace page.

Got a spare hour and a half? You couldn't spend that time any better than by watching CJ7. Synopsis? Boy goes to prep school. Dad is poor and works his butt off at a construction site to pay for things boy wants. Boy wants robotic toy dog classmates have. Dad can't afford it. Dad goes to dump to look for toy. Picks up alien-dog. Hilarity ensues. The kid does an excellent job as an actor. Steven Chow (of Kung Fu Hustle fame) is rather mute in the role of the father. He doesn't excel but then again, the story isn't about the father. Check the movie out if you can get your hands on it. You can thank me later. Just a word of warning - it is subtitled and I wouldn't suggest watching it any other way.

Letter to rude lady who cut in front of me at Five Guys Burgers and Fries

Nothing pisses me off more than inconsiderate people. NOTHING! So here's the story:

I took today off and decided that a cheeseburger sounded good for lunch. I had to stop by Target and pick up some stuff for dinner anyways and Five Guys Burgers and Fries was close by. I walked in and waited in line like everybody else. Just before I got to the front of the line, another register opened up. Just at that moment, a lady walked in the door and walked right in front of the register that opened up. By this time I was already moving into the new register line so the person behind me moved up to the line I was previously in so I was pretty much stuck in the new line. Anyways, the lady beat me to the new line. She pulls a piece of paper out that had seven or eight orders on it (apparently, it was for her office lunch) but might as well have been Santa's list of naughty and nice children for all I cared. She gives the order to the waitress, pays for her order with a credit card and then has the nerve to ask for change for a ten dollar bill! Anyways, by the time I got to the front of the line I was already pissed but to top it all off, the waitress, who should have told the lady to go to the end of the line, had the gall to ask me if I'd like a large order of fries with my order! urgh! So, anyways, rude lady that cut in front of me, if by any chance you're reading my blog, this is what I should have said to you:

Excuse me. The line starts back there behind all those fine people you've so inconsiderately cut in front of. Now waddle back to the end of the line and wait for your turn like everybody else. Now fuck off and have a nice day.

Did I mention I have no patience for rude people?
