I’m still here. Haven’t been abducted by the aliens yet. That’s for another day.

I spent the last week on writing hiatus mostly due to sitting on babies for 7 dollars an hour.

1. Babysat an 11 month old for 3 hours every day (9am-12pm) for a week which takes a lot out of you. Especially waking up at 8am on a summer sleep schedule.

2. On Friday I babysat the 11 month old and my sister babysat a 2 1/2 year old. We were at the same place so we sat on our charges together. It was like real life nanny bonding. Chatting at the park while watching our respective charges amongst the other outsourced babysitters and young mothers (and the rare father), I felt like a bonafide Nanny. Only I wasn’t from another country and the money I made was for my plane ticket for Thanksgiving not a motel and food for the week.

I walk into the medical district and my skin loses the tan I got from swimming, the slight brownish Filipino pallor I stole from my father, and any dirt that might hide the sudden glaring white that has taken up residence as my face. Doctor visits mean sitting on a papered table (depending on the type of visit, it may be a stirruped table), naked and freezing, while your doctor pulls on latex gloves and decides which part of your body to attack with pokes and prods first. And at the end of the visit, the reward is occasionally a stick in the arm with a needle or two.

I had a gynocologist appointment today to refill my birth control pills before I go off to college. My gynocologist is young, pretty, and nice. I’m just not to fond of her hands. I KNOW where they’ve been. Continue Reading Alright, doc, keep your hands where i can see them!…

The Guild and Dr. Horrible….in your pants.

10 online episodes each about 4 minutes. Written by Felicia Day, a Dr. Horrible’s Sing A Long Blog star, The Guild is a complete YouTube lowrent broadcast (with great production quality for a YouTube vid). It centers around six online gaming addicts (presumably to a World of Warcraftesque game) who are all in the same online Guild. The main character, Codex (Day), begins each ep with a vlog mini monologue. Two of Day’s costars she knew previously from improv. The rest of the cast was gathered via casting directer. My favorite character is the neglegent mother, Clara, whose priorities align themselves GAME > life. Episode One begins when Codex finds that her guildmate whom she has been flirting with online is on her doorstep in the (as he calls it) “physical realm”. He did some sketchy internet stalking and found out everything about Codex. “Isn’t that cool?” codex: “yeah. um no, no not really. … You’re in my house….Why are you…here?” Gets funnier every ep.

I have never seen Firefly, but I’ve heard a lot about the “best show to ever to be so prematurely canceled”. I plan on buying the DVD. I never saw an entire season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the cult favorite. Both are Whedon brother creations.

I have seen How I Met Your Mother with supporting actor Neil Patrick Harris as an AWE – wait for it wait for it – SOME character. Continue Reading Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog…
