121107- Untitled like that D’angelo song...

For some reason I've been inspired to post.

- Ever think of onions? Like why are white, yellow and red all the standard onion shape, but green onions are just long stems? I mean red, green and yellow bell peppers have the same shape, as with different colored grapes. That's totally a wrench in the notion that a chick has an onion booty, because you very well can be talking about a green onion booty.

- Speaking of onion booties, I like Kim Kardashian. Then I had my KK theory, which is this: a chick is hotter if her initials are KK. A few examples are Kim Kardashian, sister Kourtney Kardashian [but not sister Khloe Kardashian], Kira Kener, Kristin Kreuk, Kelly Kapowski, etc. I work with a couple KK's but just have email contact with them and have no idea what they look like, but chances are they're attractive.

- So at work, its self-evaluation time. Doing these self-performance reviews is kinda tricky. If its all positive then they might think yeah right. Then if its bad they might think damn he's wack, he says so himself! I might inflate my ego a bit and go with the former though. Oh yeah during the last two peer reviews I've had, I was rated the highest in my whole group woohoo. I haven't got any raises or promotions, so I guess it doesn't matter haha.

- You know how sale prices are always a certain percentage off? Like I'm staring at a nike coupon that says 20% off your purchase. I wonder if it would have the same effect if you put "pay only 80% of your amount!" Well duh guys, I know it's the same monetary effect, but I'm thinking moreso of the psychological psyche. Like our minds are ingrained to think bigger is better, so if they see the 80% amount, they would be more inclined to use the coupon? When I shop with G and she gets all excited about getting something for say 30% off, and I just say "no you didn't save 30%, you just paid 70% of the price. If you really saved something you'd have more money in your pocket than you did before you bought it." Man I'm such a dream shatterer.

- I had a dream the other day that I scored a 14 on the first part of my exam, which would be totally fine if it was out of 15. But its out of 100, and realistically I think I did slightly better than that. And FYI I'ma only share my score if I pass.

- You are looking at the proud owner of http://www.reegsta.com. Yeah right now its not live [I just pushed the "purchase domain" button mere moments ago], but its about to take over. I mean it has the "consonant-repeating-vowel-G" structure that google has, so don't think it's a coincidence. [FYI it took me like 5 tries to spell consonant correctly.] My ticker symbol can be REEG [that's not taken either]. The more I think about it, this blog area on MySpace is just temporary. I kinda did it backwards, as I had/have my blogspot and now I'm doing it here. Kind of like how Kim Kardashian did her video with Brandy's lil bro [I told myself I can't say his name anymore], then her pictorial spread. Anyway I'm hoping for a launch date of 010108, so that probably means it'll be live sometime next summer.

- So on my Christmas wishlist are golf items, since my clubs and bag are way crusty. That's not the reason I suck though, since a carpenter never blames his tools. I'm tryna revert back to things that I use to enjoy doing, but for some reason or the other just stopped: playing ball, playing golf, blogging, selling crap on ebay, wearing certain shoes, listening to certain artists…just keepin it real reegsta really.

- People generally think I'ma nice dude, but its like I have a different persona at work. You know sometimes when you meet someone, you're all nice initially and they gradually lose points. With me, you'll start at 0 and try to build your way up. Like we had this new cat start today, and I notice he was in a file that I used. I told him to exit, but I didn't really need to. He then emailed a group of us asking if anyone was down for lunch, and I ignored it. I don't know, maybe subconsciously I see new coworkers as my competition, and I just want to annihilate them. Its probably the Starbury in me.

- So it was an experimental weekend in Tahoe, as I snowboarded the blues for the first time! Yeah I'm still very amatuerish [I mean, I wore sunglasses bleh], but it was fun nonetheless. The weather was pretty insane, as the snow was coming down hard and there was like zero visibility, but that made it even better. Plus just the overall weekend chilling in the cabin with the homies is always a fun experience. Can't wait til I go back again!

- My two axioms/adages/maxims that I live by: don't sweat the small stuff and what I eat don't make you [poop].

- Lastly, congrats Eric and Kini on your engagement! I do get an assist because I did introduce them to each other, even though both forgot the time. And another assist for living with Eric at the time when Kini visited me during that one Valentine's day and Eric told her to go to that one spot in K-Town where he used to promote. On and off the court, I rack assists up like Jose Calderon.
