What could possibly make a snake giggle? Makes you curious, don’t it?
I’m sure that if snakes were reading this they’d all disagree. Apparently skinning them, dying them pink and putting them on shoes makes them giggle. Or at least so the brand Chinese Laundry would suggest.
Yes, you read it here, I bought another pair or shoes. Named giggle snake. I think It was the name more than anything else that drew me to them. They were cheap….er at Century 21 (no, not the realty company, the discount department store right next to Ground Zero). I’m sure my parents are cringing at the thought of me spending money on this, on THIS!! Don’t worry parents! It’s loan money! Ha ha ha! Ok, so it’s not funny. Sorry.
So here are my pink-tastic giggly snake shoes. They’re a lot of fun. They were bought to be able to dress up a casual outfit and still be walkable (note the low heel). I took them out for a spin yesterday. Well, the spin was a little too long. It was more like an all day hike. Even in my flip flops, that’ll kill me. Needless to say, my feet hurt intensely by the end of the day. BUT I think with some massaging, they can become really good walking shoes. We’ll see.
What do you guys think? People on the street stopped me to mention that they liked my shoes. That being said, they were just random guys who would probably say anything just to have interaction with a girl. But back to the shoes. Am I going over board?

I would sell my left kidney to be able to dance like these inhuman conglomerates of metal and rhythm.
Stephan sent me this link and i think it’s definitely worth posting. Seriously, who knew that robots were that agile? Now i have nothing over androids.
Anyway, check out this link and say thanks to Stephan for sending it my way.

I love places that have wireless networks available - ripe for pillaging!
I’m at the airport right now. It’s 1:11am on the Friday the 13th. This is the day i move to New York. That being said, i’m sitting in ONT airport right now cuz my flight was delayed a good 3 hours. I’m not complaining because without that delay, i would never have made it on the plane (i was very late getting to the airport) and might have also been charged an extra $50 for my box going 6.5 pounds over the weight limit (Merv, they were *way* uber picky about that weight thing!). They gave me the baggage thing because they made us wait for the flight. phew!
Security also seemed to find something very interesting in my bag. They pulled it to shreds which took a good 30 minutes for the whole process.
Whatever the case may be, i’m gonna get on a plane at 3 am! Yay Jesus! I think he was lookin’ out for me when it came to this situation.
AND now while i’m waiting, i find that there’s a wireless network available for FREE! woot! So i’ve been catching up with email/IMing and such for the past hour. I’ve been away from the internet so long - a whole TWO DAYS! I had to cancel our DSL at our house in order to transfer the charges into someone else’s name. I was almost having withdrawals.
So here i am, passing time at the airport, listening to the wretched screaming of the worm babies echo through the accoustically superb waiting lounge. Thanks to my laptop, a nice set of headphones, and Norah Jones, i’m immune. Weeee!
Aaah, so much to be thankful for.

You know those photos they take of you on rollercoasters? I’m such a sucker.
Magic Mountain is a great place. Especially for suckers like me. I love taking fun pics. Surprisingly, the best ride at Magic Mt. to do this on is Jet Stream (now renamed Splashdown). You already know where and when the picture will be taken, so you can actually prepare for it. So, that’s what we did.
Don’t you think it was worth it? ;)
Pink's - an American tradition in artery hardening

Who can resist the cholesterol-filled, heart-attack inducing goodness of a hot dog from Pink’s?
It used to be a cart selling dirty hot dogs in L.A., but thanks to over 60 years of selling the same thing in the same place, they’re now a fine establishment that sits at the corner of La Brea and Melrose. Definitely worth a try - one time won’t kill you...very quickly. Check out this picture of the Millenium Dog. It’s a jalepeno hot dog with lettuce, tomatoes, chilli, nacho cheese, onions, um, and pretty much anything else you can think of.
Plus you get good service from really happy happy people. I mean, look at this guy. “Here! Don’t get a heart attack on the premises! It’s bad for business!”
