Like the good old times.

I spent the evening hanging out with Sarah.  I was supposed to hang out with Megan but she wasn't feeling great this morning so we decided to reschedule for next week.  I picked up Sarah and we had dinner at BD's Mongolian Barbeque.  It was really good.  After dinner, we did some shopping at Borders where I picked up a couple of books.  Then we jetted to her place to catch tonight's episodes of I Love The 90's1996 & 1997.
 
Then, in typical Sarah & Trent form, we spent the next couple of hours watching MTV snacking on Cheez-Its.  First we watched Danny get voted off Road Rules: X-Treme.  Then we watched The Real World: San Diego - The Shit They Should Have Shown.  OMG, was this show AWESOME!  Sarah, Erik and I are all in agreement that The Real World: San Diego sucked major ass.  It was so boring and the people were so annoying.  We hated every second of it.  But the Shit They Should Have Shown special more than made up for the entire crappy season.  I actually liked seeing the Real Worlders without all the editing.  It was worth it all just to see Cameren keep smacking Brad in the nuts over and over and over!  You should check it out if you get a chance.  We were totally wrapped up in the show and the tape (she recorded the show from last Tuesday night) cut out before the last 10 minutes of the show.  First we howled in anger and then checked the TV schedule to learn that it reairs tomorrow at 2:30pm.  I have to watch it to the end.
 
Anyways, we had a great time hanging out together.  I love my relationship with Sarah.  We have all the good stuff now and none of the bad stuff.  Weee!  We're so in sync when we hang it's scary.  Tomorrow night she is coming to see us play kickball again and then she and I are going to the Cadieux Cafe to watch Mark play guest drums with Bloom (his brother, Michael's, band).
 
It shall rock!

I want a legal guardian too!

It's pay day (we get paid on the 15th and 30th/31st of every month) so I'm going to go out today! Thankfully, I'm feeling a little better and I haven't heard the cats hiss at one another all morning. There is a hodge-podge of news today. Whatever will I do when I have to go back to work?

In the It's about fucking time news category: Courtney Love has been put under the control of "A person who has the legal responsibility for providing the care and management of a person who is incapable, either due to age or to some other physical, mental or emotional impairment, of administering his or her own affairs" -- essentially the same legal powers, rights and duties as a parent. Um, yeah. In other Courtney news, now she's a comic book character too.

Elliott Smith's last album will be posthumously released on October 19. I don't want to say that I'm excited (because of the circumstances surrounding its release) but new Elliott Smith is always a good thing.

More NIN news; Trent will be reissuing Closure (The video collection) and The Downward Spiral (in a 2-disc set; mixed in 5.1 stereo) and has set the new album release date to "early '05".

First she worked with Fischerspooner and now Kylie teams up with the Scissor Sisters for a collabo. That little Aussie always has her fingers on the pulse of what's hot. Will it be a remix or a whole new song? Can't wait to find out! [Goss via Michael T.]

Watch your back Hilary, Lindsay gets a record deal. Erik is all about Hilary, but I really like the Lindsay songs that I've heard (from the soundtrack to Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen). Hilary and Lindsay are the new Britney and Xtina.

We all know that she's got ugly-hair-a but did you know that Xtina is going bald? Shocking isn't it?

And finally I present to you unequivocal proof that Trishelle from The Real World: Las Vegas is the trashiest skank on earth -- click HERE for photos of her nudie spread in Playboy magazine. Warning! Do not click this link at work, it is totally Not suitable for kids. And to clarify, she's not skanky because she's nude, she's skanky because she looks like she could give you an STD just by looking at her. Incidentally, if you are so inclined, you can also download other Playboy photos of various other Real World/Road Rules Women including bitchface Veronica and überugly Beth! Proceed at your own risk ... eek!

I'm going to go wash my eyes and hit the road. The day has only begun. Developing ...
