Uh-oh

My response to a recent telephone survey: "I'm sorry, but I'm not an Oregonian anymore."

I feel kind of empty inside right now.

  1. Man, I know you went sort of L.A. style when you moved down there. And I know Ph.D work takes time, but that really drives the point home doesn't it. You are Californian now. The real question now is: When is your first "cosmetic surgery" scheduled?

  2. Good question, Beau! You know, according to the one Ok! magazine I ever bought (I thought, "It's British so it must be better than People," forgetting that Limey tabloids are among the worst in the world), Britney Spears gets Botox(TM) now to keep her face from wrinkling in the first place. And nothing says "I'm a sexy bitch" quite like botulism. I suggest something totally frivolous, something that says, "Oh yeah, LA? Well I raise you one elbow crease lift!"

  3. Well, I've got an industrial in my left ear now, but I don't think that's the kind of "cosmetic surgery" you're referring to, is it?

  4. Dude, I don't even know what that means. (I'm so out of the loop...)

  5. You know the bar that some people have across the top of their ear? One of those. I think I'm going to have to be putting up an informative blog post about some of the more cromulent goings-on in my life, aren't I?

  7. Alright. Sometime in the next couple days, when I have time to collect my thoughts and take a picture or two. Right now, though, lots of code to write. Hooboy.

  8. On one hand: I can relate. I can completely relate.

    On the other hand: Whatever, pussy! At least you're in the goddamn country!

    ;-P

  10. Llama: I'm not bummed that I'm not in Oregon at the moment. After all, I lived in Oregon for a minority of my life. But even growing up overseas, I always considered myself an Oregonian. But now, after only 9 months out of the state, I've already been converted! Yargh!

    But thanks, Kristin. I miss you crazy Oregonians, too.
