"That's Hot"

Work was not fun. It wasn't really work but more like an assessment of work to come. I have a bazillion things to do once school starts up again. I'm not going to bore you with the details right now. I'm sure I'll be bitching soon enough when work officially begins.

After I was done at ULS I went to Barbarella for my haircut. I decided that I want to keep the length of my hair and just get it thinned out. So Sandra (who is featured in a great ARTICLE on Hamtramck) fixed my tips and thinned out my hair. She loved the way it looked, I did too. I invited both her and Julie (lead singer of The Fondas, who works with Sandra at Barbarella) to our housewarming party so hopefully they can make it.

Anyways, after I got home I crashed for a bit. I stayed up late last night and had to get up early today so I was in need of a nappy-wappy. Erik had plans to hang out with Kirsten tonight so I only got to see him for a little bit before he had to go out.

While perusing the various topics at Say Hey! I came across a post by a user named Arch Dandy (he has a livejournal HERE). He found a high quality MP3 of Marilyn Manson's cover of Depeche Mode's Personal Jesus. You can download the track by right-clicking HERE (the link will be up for 7 days so get it while you can). I think the cover is just O.K. It's a pretty standard cover. I was expecting Marilyn Manson to really change it up and make it their own (it does have Marilyn Manson elements to it) but they just didn't do anything new and fresh with the song. Eh, it's O.K. The MM Greatest Hits cd Lest We Forget is released on September 28th. Here is the tracklist:

1. The Love Song
2. Personal Jesus
4. The Fight Song
5. Tainted Love
6. The Dope Show
7. This Is The New Shit
8. Disposable Teens
9. Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)
10. Lunchbox
11. Tourniquet
12. Rock Is Dead
13. Get Your Gunn
14. The Nobodies
15. Long Hard Road Out Of Hell
16. The Beautiful People
17. The Reflecting God

You can pre-order your copy HERE.

Tonight I got caught up watching the Simple Life 2 marathon on Fox. Hahahah! I have only seen a few episodes from the first season and none of the episodes from this second season and Oh.My.God is it hilarious! Shane has always been raving about how much he loves Paris Hilton (and I'm always reading about how MK at is a fan) and now I know why. On the show, Paris is the calmer one compared to Nicole Richie. They are so funny to watch. And I love the sound effects (I think the "boing" is my favorite one). I'm not sure when it happened but I've slowly grown more fond of Paris Hilton. She used to annoy me but now I find her one "sexy bitch". I never even had an opinion on Nicole but she's pretty damn funny. I loved it when the girls stayed with the very religous Cash family who kept chiding them for their foul language. As the girls were driving away, and after the family prayed for them, Nicole yells out "You guys fucking rock!" I swear, I about fell to the floor in hysterics. I have to admit, though, that the season finale was kind of anti-climactic. They finished their road trip and that was that. I can't believe that I'm about to say this but I hope they do a Simple Life 3. Not sure what they would do but I think I'd like to see more.

All I can say is that I "loves it!"

Tomorrow I have to do the morning thing at work again and I might visit my parents in the afternoon. Erik and I are meeting up with the gang to celebrate Andy's birthday tomorrow night so that should be a blast. So, for tonight, I'm audi.
