Hello there. Are you the man of the house? Yes? Well then let me be the first to congratulate you! You're getting all new electronics! How is this possible? Because I'm taking your current models! Hands where I can see them, first person to move will be deeply missed by their respective loved ones.

So one of my favorite things to do is make playlists on my iPod. Not just any type of playlist, because that would be dull. These are themed playlists. Such as "In event of alien attack." Or "Thou Shalt Rock Olympus." Or my personal favorite, "Consistent Failure: The Sound Track of My Life". Eventually I'll upgrade my iTunes and I'll be able to share these mixes with the world, but until I get around to that, I'll just post my favorite one. Which happens to be the soundtrack of my life. This is the third (or fourth) iteration of said soundtrack, basically because I change it everytime my iPod crashes. Hold on a sec. . .apparently I'm now being sued by Apple. Whoops. That's right boys n girls, or boyz n da hood, whichever you prefer my iPod crashes regularly. Which is both sad and mundane at the same time. Hmmm. . .anyway, here's the stuff of dreams. No wait, that's the other playlist. Here's Consistent Failure.

Last night I cut my hair. And by cut, I mean I really cut it. Its back to its natural buzzed form, which I've concluded after seeing myself with hair and without that I don't think I like. Its a conclusion based on what I've grown accustomed to seeing. Which means, I'm used to seeing myself with hair, so now I don't like seeing myself with hair. Either way, that apparently is how I get down. OR whatever. I'm trying to sound intelligent and cool and its coming off as dorky and stupid. Which is why kids, you should never try. I'm going to end this now since I don't really want to reveal how shallow I really am. I'm going to go stare at my hair in the mirror. See? I'm shallow.

I lack ambition. I should be dictator of the world and instead I'm just sitting around playing video games and eating cheez-its with canned cheese topping. Do you know how pathetic that is? Not that I'm not ruler of the world, that's just coincidental, but I'm putting cheese spread on cheese flavored crackers. . .I need a change of pace

Work week's over for me. I'm sure you're thinking, "but Javann, its only Tuesday." That's right drones, I work three days a week. Correction, three nights a week. Thirty six hours crammed into a tiny rubbermaid week. Never done it? Avoid it. It sucks. I take that back, it doesn't suck. I mean, it pays bills (sorta) and its kinda nice to be off work (sorta) and I gotta admit it does pay bills (sorta). But it hurts. Imagine all the stuff you've seen in a Target. Everything you buy (with the exception of fresh produce and sushi, that stuff gets there some other way) comes in boxes. Boxes that I have to move. If your target is between Birmingham, Atlanta or Knoxville, chances are I have touched something you've bought. Which, I know, is a really disturbing thought. That having been said, my back is hurting and I'm starting to drift into a blank stare that indicates that I need sleep. So please feel free to call me master of the universe. Sometimes even I don't understand me. . .

I like when people brag about their musical tastes being "diverse". It makes me giggle at how small their world really is. If you really were that diverse, you wouldn't brag about it. You'd just be. . .its like saying that you're not a racist at every opportunity. Well, if you're not a racist, guess what? You don't have to say it.

So, what did I just buy from iTunes? What do you mean, you don't care? Pipe down, pipsqueak and enjoy the recently bought artists widget that iTunes so lovingly provides. They even cooked me dinner.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
It's alright / to tell me / what you think / about me
I won't try / to argue / or hold it / against you
I know that / you're leaving / you must have / your reasons
the season / is calling / and your pictures / are falling down

The steps that / I retrace / the sad look / on your face
the timing / and structure / did you hear / he her?
a day late / a buck short / I'm writing / the report
on losing / and failing / when I move / I'm flailing now

And it's happened once again
I'll turn to a friend
someone that understands
sees through the master plan

But everybody's gone
and I've been here for too long
to face this on my own
well I guess this is growing up
well I guess this is growing up

And maybe / I'll see you / at a movie / sneak preview
you'll show up / and walk by / on the arm / of that guy
and I'll smile / and you'll wave / we'll pretend / it's okay
the charade / it won't last / when he's gone / I won't come back

And it'll happen once again
you'll turn to a friend
someone that understands
and sees through the master plan

But everybody's gone
and you've been there for too long
to face this on your own
well I guess this is growing up

Well, I guess this is growing up
well, I guess this is growing up
well, I guess this is growing up
well, I guess this is growing up
well, I guess this is growing up
Don't ask for explanation. Well you can ask, I won't guarantee the answers. Anyway, thanks for the time, and spit the intelligence at me.
