This blog is dead like Michael Jackson's career, fools!
Don't make me force y'all into typing.
You know I'm not above gratuitous violence.
In fact, I'm below gratuitous violence, but I digress...

|engwacoiriel||09:23 am - a little addendum. . .|
To further answer my query from yesterday:
For my hometown, I'd not only take you up into the mountains of course (not that it's not like you can't see them from miles away, but driving through them is an amazing experience), but I'd also take you to Pearl Street. Pearl Street is this pedestrian mall that runs through the middle of old town Boulder. Allegedly, it was named after a prostitute, but that's only a rumor: no one knows for certain. It's full of neat, old brick buildings, though, and quaint little shops, and it's where all the hippies and beatniks and Buddhist visionaries bide most of their time. I'd take you first to Pennylane Coffeehouse, home of the unemployed, dread-locked Allen GInsburg-wanna be's. It smells strongly of pot and strange spices, and has got these weird Andy Warhol-esque collages and sculptures all over the walls. Then we'd drop into the Boulder Theater, this old brick theater that reeks permanently of very strong beer; all the college kids go there for concerts, and they show Rocky Horror there frequently. After that, we'd walk by the Courthouse--it's ironic, because all the potheads hang out and strum their banjos and play cards right in front of the courthouse, LOL--and dip into a store called Where the Buffalo Roam. They sell all these funny shirts and bumper stickers: you know, like the "Pimpercrombie and Bitch Shirt" or "UPS: Universal Porno Service," etc. They've also got funny glasses and boas and bubble chairs and suchlike. And after that, we'd go to my very favorite place on Pearl STreet, the Trident. Half of it is a used bookstore, and the other half is a dim, brick-walled cafe, where you always see the same guy with the black wire-rimmed glasses and the long blond sideburns making cappuccinos, and the people sitting at the tables near you write in home-made notebooks or have conversations about German Marxist poetry and the Dada movement. And it's right next to Urban Outfitters, and we would visit there too, since I guess most of you don't have Urban where you live and you seemed so amazed by it in NYC. It was funny to me: I took so much of Boulder for granted. I was incredulous that in your respective hometowns you didn't have Urban, or The Onion. I guess Boulder doesn't suck as much as I thought it did. It's apparently a very popular vacation spot, as a matter of fact, though probably more for the skiing than anything else, since our Rockies have got the best skiing outside of the Swiss Alps.
And then I might take you guys on a tour of The Hill, the little area of shops were all the college kids at University of Colorado (CU) spend their time. Lots of little bars, and used CD and video stores, and cheap but yummy Chinese.
And I'd take Kelly to Video Station, this huge two-story Indie videostore, with all kinds of foreign things and bootleg DVDS, etc, LOL.
That's all for now folks.

|engwacoiriel||08:09 am - question for you all:|
If you could name one thing about your hometown that you would love to show to the rest of the Brothel, be it because it's interesting, amusing, beautiful, something you're proud of, whatever!, what would it be?
(For me, it would be the Rocky Mountains. Beyond any doubt.)
Oh, and I think it's so cute and awesome that Raggedy Andy and Dirty Suze are still together! Hee.

|_citylove_||04:20 pm - "i'm so tired i have to kill my pants off!"|
Wow, this is the first school day in weeks that I've been home before 6 or 7 and I'm reveling in it - and, by reveling, I mean dancing around in my leisure-suit-esque pants (you know what I'm talking about, Pam!) to Billy Joel and posting here. I'm so glad that technology finally kicked its lazy ass in gear and actually let me join the brothel community.
What's new in everyone's lives?
A quick update on mine:
- surviving school (barely) because I have the most pronounced case of senioritis ever
- watching Real World Road Rules challenge The Inferno (did ya see it, Pam? it was crazy shiz, I swear)
- going to to Great Neck again on the 27th of this month for a weekend, so already starting the countdown for that
- desperately in search of both a white graduation dres (my school doesn't do cap and gown) and a prom dress (probably going with Andy, just have to keep running all the plans through his mother)
- practicing Phantom of the Opera music for my choir's spring concert and our fabulous trip to NYC which is March 12-14 (also taking Andy with me to Phantom of the Opera... gotta get some culture for the boy)
- and, as always, hoping to recieve any kind of word from my colleges (I have NO patience, this process is complete HELL for me)
...and, that's just the (not so) interesting shit I've been able to dig up out of my day.
oh - and the subject of the post was the greatest thing said to me today, and I must credit it to Ethan, my AP Lit teacher's 5-year-old son! I was dying when he told me that.
I love you all, but I am going to get myself some Chick-fil-a for dinner now. peace out.

Hannah gave me mod-type status.
So I added more interests.
Because I am too bored to be "constructive" with my "editing powers."
Han, am I supposed to make this community all pretty-like?
Can I wait until I have my laptop back?
I will, though, maybe this weekendish - if I have time, which I'm sure I'll have in great supply - with or without the laptop.

This was a great idea, Hannah. The Brothel is back! Yay! :)
I love the info page. "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the summer of giggles, it was the summer of perversions." *laughs*
