A text chat about Forgetting Sarah Marshall went like this:

C:  All of the manhood shots were a bit much.
M:  Gratuitous penis shots? That's new. I'm sure you really minded...
C:  Maybe that's why I forget Sarah Marshall. Too distracted by all of the "Marshall" in the movie.
M:  It really shouldn't be that shocking with all of the boobs in movies and TV these days.
C:  But it's not like you can impregnate someone with boobs.

The emphasis on the word "boobs" did not come through in type.

Footnote: I love how they don't even mention his "Forgetting" role in Jason Segel's CBS bio and he not only starred, but wrote it!

St. Patrick's Day Limerick

In the manner of tradition, a St. Patty's Day Limerick!

On-the-Job Travels:
This year I’ve traveled the nation
Out West to Grand Central Station
Places on the lists
Of recommended trips
But I go to Detroit for vacation!

Wrestlemania... The trip begins in T-14 days.

Food for Thought

There are six of us and twelve 2-for-1 pints on the table.

We're discussing movies and Brokeback Mountain makes its way to topic-of-the-quarter-hour. Everyone's seen it, but me. Overall, nobody was impressed. Not particularly bothered, but none left the film a changed person. The only other girl at the table said she was turned off by the man's relationship with the woman. He's gay, but is pursuing and being physical with this woman and his feelings and passion seem genuine. She questioned how a person could really want both so severely. A rational discussion about bisexuality ensues. The guy to my right said, "I like women. It's not like I could just like to be with men sometimes without being gay." To which I said, "I'm not a vegetarian, but sometimes I eat only vegetables."

Conversation has the tendency to eventually turn to sports. Because that's what I do.

What I have a hard time explaining is how the following statement has been made by two different people, in very different settings:

"You're like all of the Spice Girls rolled up into one!"

The jury is still out on whether or not that's actually a compliment or not.

Cari-ism #654

Thought for the day:

"What you don't remember, didn't kill you"

Friday, March 25, 2005


In all of this, I finally found the meaning!

I feel much better now.

Although, I find definition 2 a bit disconcerting. I am short, but chubby? I do run and I guess, try to run fast, and I live in Minneapolis. WTH? Kind of scary.

Feeling Guilty

For not knowing where my feet are. And it freaks me out so I just put 'em down in places that I shouldn't.

My Brain Cells Say A Collective

There once was a chap named Dean
Oh how he wanted his beer green
So he waited all year
'Til green turned his beer
Now he's green too so it seems

Drive safe everyone - Ride any city bus for FREE!! (from 6pm to 3am)

O' Happy Day

From Korea to the U.S.
She flew in on an Airbus
Swedish her Dad is
But she arrived on St. Patty's
And so she thought herself Irish!

I really need to work on my limerick skills.

Today we celebrate all that is GREEN.
The luck o' the Irish, shamrocks, and green beer. You really can't go wrong.

Today also makes me feel patriotic and humbled; thankful to be here. 26 years ago today, I was on a plane, sleeping soundly while my life changed forever. I've always been lucky. I have parents who loved my every step, friends who have been and will be forever, a great career, shelter, food. Choices. Being the only Korean-Swede-but-Irish-by-default, is just an extra perk.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Have Fun.
Be Safe.

Fuzzy Logic

The parking lot at the Fridley Northwest Athletic Club is always a zoo, but especially if I go after work. I love how people fight over close parking spots at the health club.

It's 58 degrees, the sun is shining and you're going to work out - is it really that important to nab that spot which is 3 places closer than one that wouldn't inconvenience 4 other drivers?

Reason #137 to Let Them Figure Things Out on Their Own

This by my adorable 4 year old 2nd cousin Alex. She's smarter than she may ever know.

Alex very excited: Hey Daddy, I know what little girls are made of!
Daddy: Really!? What?
Alex with conviction: Sugar and Spice and everything nice.
Daddy: That's right!
Alex perplexed: I wonder what little boys are made of...
Daddy: <shrugs his shoulders> Hmmm...
Alex with delight: I know I know!! They're made of sugar and spice <pause> and wood.

Food for Thought

I wrote something in an e-mail to Lisa Lutz that I thought might actually be worth repeating...

You're paving your own road so draw the lines wherever you damn well please.

Have a problem? Need unprofessional advice? Ask Lutz.

A Child's Insight

My cousin Heather is expecting and her youngest daughter Alex (3 yrs) was excited to hear the news.

Her response was an enthusiastic, "Yah! If it's a girl, we can call her 'Pumpkin' and if it's a boy, we'll call him 'Pumpkinhead'."

Do you suppose she understands her wisdom?

John Madden is Not My Hero

While you can't always count on the Rams to score a touchdown, you can always count on Madden saying things that make you go hmmm. The most recent favorite: After a Rams lineman drew the Patriots off-sides (i.e. false start), Madden quips: "Once you put your hand down there, you can't have that little wiggle" Little wiggle. That's funny!

Mmm... Cookies

Added the Neiman Marcus cookie recipe.
Vikes lost to Detroit on Sunday - they had a win coming. Vegas odds for a team going 0-14 is 5,000 to 1! At least Moss scored twice - my fantasy team put up some serious numbers. Rhodes 2 TDs, Moss 2 TDs, Holmes 1 TD, Pollard 1 TD. Fiedler got NEGATIVE points!!!! Only 149 passing yds and 3, yes 3, interceptions! I would have been better off starting Culpepper who sat the whole game!! I've got 72.7 points as of now. If I win (and I should), I've beaten both of my division leaders in the past 2 weeks. I'm not in the playoffs because I lost to the 3rd sead by LESS than ONE point! Yes, I'm a little frustrated. But at least I'm collecting some money - we get $10 if we are the top scorer of the week (which I have been the past 2 weeks darn it!) Yeah yeah, enough crabbing about football!
Thought for the day: The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
