An email to Jordan.

Hey Jay Jay! hehehe

Sounds like you’re having a blast over there in Melbourne. You lucky bastard, you. Don’t forget to buy lots of crap that you’re never going to use and a souvenir for yourself that actually has MELBOURNE written on it. You need proof that you actually went. For all you know, I could be in Zimbabwe watching some psycho cheetah attack a poor and helpless gazelle in the African plains, sipping tea and talking with the natives. Did you know that there’s a tribe in Africa whose people have only two toes? They have these weird feet that sort of end in a V shape. Uber weird, I’m telling you.

Anyway, I have some bad news. I have misplaced your lyrics. I would like to say that I’ve been working on them but I haven’t because I’ve been lazy. I could lie to you and tell you that I’ve been hard at work planning this gig of ours, but lying isn’t nice. And you’d probably KNOW that I’m lying because, well, come on… JEN??? WORKING ON TAFE SHIT???? “I don’t think so,” says the world. Jen + tafe work = a bad headache and a stream of blood pouring from Scott’s head. We’re like water and oil, we are. (eerr… I’m talking about tafe work and me.. not Scott and me.)

I’ve gone way off track. Like I said, I’ve misplaced your lyrics because I suck… but it’s ok.. I really need some more input from you or something. If you can sort of get some melodies into your head and onto a tape it would be easier for Rob and I to try to get an idea of what you want.

Ok.. I’m going now. I need to work on my website.
Check it out by the way.. it’s a brand spanking new one – http://ua.net

Take care!!

24- all day long.

Phew what a DAY.

I am lucky enough to have Foxtel and Zehra and I have been watching 24 all day. It started last night at around 10pm and I watched 5 episodes but at around 2:30am I got tired and headed to bed. I woke up at around 11am and went downstairs and continued watching. Zehra had fallen asleep at 9am and woke up when I sat down. So she debriefed me on what I had missed and then we both continued watching.

I was interrupted from my 24-fest by Adam, who came over because I promised him I’d go out and buy a guitar with him. So we quickly went out and he bought an Epiphone acoustic for $309 – a bloody bargain, I tell you!!! He’s so proud of it.

When we got back to my place, Adam helped me drill holes into my wall to stick up my awesome cd rack. I tell you something… Adam is NO handyman. Sorry Ads. lol If I hadn’t come to help him, I think my whole wall would have collapsed.

After, we watched the rest of 24 and JUST finished about 30 minutes ago. That is.. one of the best damn series I have ever seen.

It’s been a good day.

We were supposed to go to church yesterday because it was Good Friday… but we all thought it was in the evening… but when we got there, the only thing that was happening was Youth, and I was in no mood to have to face SKYE. (*groan*) So we didn’t end up going. I feel really guilty about it now. It just didn’t end up FEELING like Good Friday because we didn’t end up going. Not good.

Dad woke me up this morning. He called me while he was driving on the freeway in Jakarta. I love it when he calls in to check in on me. He always calls when he’s on the freeway. I think it may be because when we’re all in the car in Jakarta, everyone’s usually asleep and I’m the one that stays awake and keeps him company. I miss him so much.

Anyway, it’s been a pretty uneventful day. And I tell you, after watching what Jack Bauer went through in 24, I am DAMN GLAD it was uneventful.

FINISHED!!

Yay! I’ve finally finished the site! Everything is working – I think – except for any links going to ua.net or music.ua.net since I haven’t started building those sites yet.

Ugh.. I am SO relieved to be finished with this one. Now all I have to worry about is actually WRITING in it! I’m doing a pretty good job so far…

By the way, H A P P Y | G O O D | F R I D A Y.

Tricky Questions.

I was wandering around, checking out blogs yesterday and I came across this site and these awesome facts:

Question 1:

If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids already, three who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?

Read the next question before looking at the answer for this one.

Question 2:

It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts. Here are the facts about the three leading candidates.

Candidate A – Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologists. He’s had two Mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B – He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

Candidate C – He is a decorated war hero. He’s a vegetarian, doesn’t smoke, drinks an occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.

Which of these candidates would be your choice? Decide first, no peeking, then scroll down for the answer.

ANSWERS:

Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Candidate B is Winston Churchill.

Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

And, by the way, the answer to the abortion question: If you said yes, you just killed Beethoven.

Pretty interesting isn’t it? Makes a person think before judging someone.

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember: Amateurs built the ark Professionals built the Titanic.

Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 500 employees and has the following statistics:

* 29 have been accused of spousal abuse
* 7 have been arrested for fraud
* 19 have been accused of writing bad checks
* 117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses
* 3 have done time for assault
* 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
* 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
* 8 have been arrested for shoplifting
* 21 are currently defendants in lawsuits
* 84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year

Can you guess which organization this is?

Give up yet?

It’s the 535 members of the United States Congress. The same group of idiots that crank out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in line.

Interesting huh?

“She could be a real dog”

Well, I watched You’ve Got Mail tonight. Man, I love that film. Maybe it’s because I – unlike so many others – get internet relationships.

Anyway… Les and I were going to go on a bit of a Mraz stakeout (or search, rather) because Kat never got back to me, which I’m pretty pissed off about… Oh well.. can’t do anything about it now. Well, not with the help of Kat anyway.

So.. I’m bored.. and I have a headache… and I can’t be bothered really doing anything. Not the best combination if you ask me. Although I can definitely think of some worse combinations…

For example:
A KKK member in the middle of Harlem;
N in a pool of sharks;
Jen in a pool of Ns;
Orange Juice and milk;
Toothpaste and orange juice;
Jennifer Love Hewitt and John Mayer;
Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton.

Some good combinations:
Jen in a pool of John Mayers;
Jen in a pool of Jason Mrazes;
Jen in a pool;
Jen + a record deal;
Jen + touring the US.

Sunday Seven

April 28, 2002
Sunday Se7en!!! lol

1. What are your hobbies? Umm.. webdesigning, Yahoo!ing, playing my guitar, listening to music… um.. watching tv… basically anything that’s unproductive. lol

2. Do you collect anything? If so, what? Well, not really.. but I always take those free postcards from cafes.. I have a bag full of them.

3. Is there a hobby you’re interested in, but just don’t have the time/money to do? I’ve always wanted to take up golf.. hmm.. that’s it really…

4. Have you ever turned a hobby into a moneymaking opportunity? Not really. I guess you could say my music is my attempt to make money. Haven’t made any yet though. Donations anyone??

5. Besides web-related stuff (burbs, rings, etc.), what clubs do you belong to? Erm… None, really. I don’t really know *haha*. Silly me.

6. What kind of club would you NEVER ever join? Um… anything that has the word ‘trek’ in it.

7. Have you ever been in a club that you are really embarassed about? Um… not really. I was a pretty boring kid… I wasn’t in Brownies.. or the girl guides…

Waterfalls
by TLC

A lonely mother gazing out of her window
Staring at a son that she just can’t touch
If at any time he’s in a jam
She’ll be by his side
But he doesn’t realize he hurts her so much
But all the praying just ain’t helping
At all ’cause he can’t seem to keep
His self out of trouble
So he goes out and he makes his money
The best way he knows how
Another body laying cold in the gutter
Listen to me

Chorus:
Don’t go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that
You’re used to
I know that you’re gonna have it your way
Or nothing at all
But I think you’re moving too fast

Little precious has a natural obsession
For temptation but he just can’t see
She gives him loving that his body can’t handle
But all he can say is baby it’s good to me
One day he goes and takes a glimpse
In the mirror
But he doesn’t recognize his own face
His health is fading and he doesn’t know why
3 letters took him to his final resting place
Y’all don’t hear me

Chorus

I seen a rainbow yesterday
But too many storms have come and gone
Leavin’ a trace of not one God-given ray
Is it because my life is ten shades of grey
I pray all ten fade away
Seldom praise Him for the sunny days

And like His promise is true
Only my faith can undo
The many chances I blew
To bring my life to anew
Clear blue and unconditional skies
Have dried the tears from my eyes
No more lonely cries
My only bleedin’ hope
Is for the folk who can’t cope
Wit such an endurin’ pain
That it keeps ’em in the pourin’ rain
Who’s to blame
For tootin’ caine in your own vein
What a shame
You shoot and aim for someone else’s brain
You claim the insane
And name this day and time
For fallin’ prey to crime
I say the system got you victim to your own mind

Dreams are hopeless aspirations
In hopes of comin’ true
Believe in yourself
The rest is up to me and you

Catching Up.

Nothing much has been happening these last few days. So here’s a few of the highlights that I can think of:

§ On Wednesday a took Vanina to get her tongue pierced at Steel Candy. Such a brave girl… lol. She even got a discount because I took her there!

§ I’ve been practicing with the band a few times a week. We have a gig coming up and we’re SO not ready. So much more practice needed! aargh!

§ On Sunday night, Ruth had her birthday bash at the OBH. It’s this bar that all the country folk go to. It wasn’t bad actually. There were so many people from highschool there and it was great catching up with them all again. After the bar, we were supposed to meet at Club Bayview but we rocked up early, and it was completely empty. So Les, Sandy and I went to Oriels instead.

§ My dog, Jaxon, died yesterday morning in Indonesia. 🙁 We don’t know what he died of, but he’s always been a weak dog. *sigh* So sad…

Don’t Let Me Get Me

I never win 1st place
I don’t support the team
I can’t take direction
And my socks are never clean
Teachers dated me
My parents hated me
I was always in a fight
‘Cause I can’t do nothing right

Everyday I fight a war against the mirror
Can’t take the person staring back at me

I’m a hazard to myself
Don’t let me get me
I’m my own worst enemy
It’s bad when you annoy yourself
So irritating
Don’t want to be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else

LA told me
You’ll be a pop star
All you have to change
Is everything you are
Tired of being compared
To damn Britney Spears
She’s so pretty
That just ain’t me

So doctor doctor won’t you please prescribe me something

@-^—

I’m feeling very alone right now…

No one’s online, no one’s around.. I don’t know whether it’s a good thing.. or a bad thing.

The past 10 days have been… ‘uncalled for’ is the only phrase I can think of. A lot of shit happened that I didn’t need.

I’m still unsure about how I’m feeling right now. I can’t make my mind up. Am I happy or sad? I hate feeling indifferent.

Ow

Well, I got my labret pierced yesterday. I was really nervous, and it frickin’ hurt like hell… but it’s ok now. It just feels a little uncomfortable, and I’m definitely not used to it yet.

Hmm.. besides that, nothing much has happened. I went to see Sandy for the first time in WEEKS right after i got the labret done… she was always telling me NOT to get it, but she was actually rather impressed with it. So yay.

Now, all I have to do, is tell my ‘rents.

Les dragged me to this get together at an old school friend’s house. Shyeah right… get together.. now THAT was an understatement. 5 people watching ‘Stepmom’. I didn’t even hang out with the other 3 people when we were in school!

We left early, making a stupid excuse about having another thing with a different friend… we came back to my place and cooked fried rice! lol…
