So I got my wisdom teeth removed on Monday. I am swollen and on lots of pain killers, but I still managed to drag myself out to the Cheesecake Factory last night for Chas' birthday. I couldn't eat anything but cheesecake, but that is one of the best parts of getting surgery, being able to eat chocolate mousse cheesecake for dinner. The left side of my face was really swollen (even though I got all four wisdom teeth removed, only the left side is really swollen.) Anyway, thanks to Amy and Jill for coming over and keeping me company on Monday when I got home. I will right more once I start feeling a little better.

Hello Everybody! I have been a little out of touch the past few days. Really busy. People to do, things to see. (Oops! Freudian slip!) I meant things to do, people to see. Anyway, tomorrow I get my wisdom teeth pulled (ouch!) But once I get back on my feet, I will be back to my usual talkative self. I have so much to do before I go to New York, and before I go back on tour. I am so stressed. Oh well. At least I will be on heavy narcotics for the next couple days (they really do give you good sh*t after surgery, don’t they!) I figure, the wisdom teeth will hurt, but it will be an excuse to sit and do nothing. That is the plan, sit on my ass, take some pills, and watch a bunch of movies (Thanx for loaning me all the DVDs Jill!) Anyway, bye all. Chas’ Birthday celebration is Wednesday nite, so let’s hope I am up to going out by then, and I will give you all a report on the festivities. Bye!

Some people have way too much free time. Like whoever made this webjournal. I mean, come on, a livejournal by the "Lord of the Rings" characters? Please, get yourself a life.

So, I was watching an old Margaret Cho Stand-Up routine today. She was talking about how she had sex with a woman, and this led to all sorts of confusion about her sexuality. "Am I Gay? Am I Straight?" She says. "No, I am just slutty."

So I went to Legible Leftovers and got some reading material. Picked up quite a few books. I got “Player Piano” by Kurt Vonnegut, Anne Rice’s “Cry to Heaven” (the only book by Rice I had yet to pick up), and “The Tommyknockers” by Stephen King. I’m working on my “Player Piano” now, I’ll save the other two to read next week after I get my wisdom teeth out. Ouch! Just thinking about the surgery hurts. Hopefully though, they will give me good drugs to handle the pain.
I also saw “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”. The movie wasn’t bad, but it is just another example of the book being better then the movie. For one thing, they did make a few changes. Like adding Tom Sawyer, he is not in the book, but the movie studio wanted to add a young American to the cast. Also, Mina Harker is the leader of the group in the book, not Alan Quatermain (in fact he is an Opium addict in the book). Oh well. The effects were cool. And I was suprised how much they went into the characters; in fact, they could have spent more time on the plot, and less on the characters (but given how illiterate modern movie audiences are, I guess some poeple aren’t familiar with the characters). Sean Conner does kick some ass in the fight scenes (immpressive for a man old enough to be my grandfather). Overall, everyone was good. But, I really wasn’t impressed by Peta Wilson’s Mina Harker; and after having seen “Queen of the Damned” everytime Stuart Townsend was on the screen in “League” as Dorian Grey, I kept picturing him as Lestat in those leather pants. Still want to go see “Pirates of the Carribean” and “28 Days”. I swear, I have seen more movies in the past two months then I have in the past two years. But, that is just cause I am home. Once I go back on tour, I won’t have time for the movies.
Krista is out of the hospital. She has months of physical therapy ahead of her, and she will probably set off metal detectors now that she has all that titanium in her neck. But, at least she is okay. I will see her at Tiff’s wedding next month. And speaking of the wedding, what the hell should I buy Tiff and Josh? I mean, I am the maid of honor, so getting them a bunch of dishes off their registry seems a little impersonnal. So, if anyone has any ideas for a gift. email me and let me know. Thanks.

I had a really crappy day today. A close relative of mine is in the hospital. She had to have emergency surgery an d had some vertebrae in her neck replaced. My relationship has gone to sh*t. It doesn't matter how much you love each other, life just gets in the way and f*cks everything up. Love doesn't matter when you have family, jobs, and the world in general coming between you. Oh well, I guess some things just aren't meant to be. I m glad though, that if things have to come to an end, the end this way. No fights, no tears, just parting as friends and knowing that this is the way it has to be (I am being so mature about this, it is so unlike me) Oh well. Whatever. Life happens. There are plenty of fish in the sea. Lovers are like buses, there is another one coming every few minutes. I don't know, I am sure there are other things people say in this situation, but normally when one of my relationship ends, it involves the other person screaming at me. But that is cause most of my relationships end becuase of me cheating. In fact, except this one, I think they all ended that way. Oh well. I am definately my parents child.
So, I have decided to grow my hair out long so I can do the "hair flip". I saw Charlie's Angels tonight with Jill. It is all about the hair flip. I want to be an Angel. I mean, beating up guys would be great, but what I really want is the clothes and the cars. The movie was okay, some scenes are practically soft-core porn though. The direction is horrible, the situations are completely unbelievable (the whole suspension of disbelief thing), but there are some good one-liners, lots of cameos (what is the deal with Carrie Fisher playing a nun? First it was Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and now this), but mainly, it is all about the soundtrack and the girls. This movie is basically filmed as a series of music videos, with some dialogue thrown in here and there between action scenes. Watching the movie, reminds me that I really need to work out more. If Demi Moore, who is like, my mom's age, can look that good in a bikini, then I should definately do some sit-ups. Just Giv'r.
So, I know I spend alot of time when I am bored just wasting time on the internet. And I kind of figured anybody reading this site is doing so because they have nothing better to do. So rather than read about boring little me, check out all these things you could be doing instead:
You could be helping peoplefight hungeror breast cancer
You could find out more about your life, your death, even your ex-girlfriend or that guy you just met
You could expand your mind or see that even people smarter then you have nothing better to do with their time
or you could just see someone sicker, sadder, and more pathetic then yourself.
Or when all else fails, check out some really, really strange porn or shop, shop, shop.

Why do famous people always die in threes? Katherine Hepburn, Barry White, and Buddy Ebsen. While I wasn't really a huge fan of any of them, they were talented each in their own way. But enough about death, now it is time for a laugh at Son of A Bush's expense (which really isn't that hard, in fact, it seems to be getting easier and easier to make fun of our president.
Okay, so I am stealing this from Chas, who stole this from THIS MODERN WORLD, but here is what EVERYONE needs to do:
1) Pay a visit to Google.

2) Type in (without using any quotes): weapons of mass destruction

3) Click the "I'm Feeling Lucky" icon.

You'll see why. Just go...
Went and saw "Legally Blonde 2:Red, White and Blonde" tonight with mom. Boy, is that a stupid movie. Had a few good one liners, but definately a movie that can wait till video, or even wait till it's on cable. Made me glad mom paid for it and not me. Got the rest of my Bahamas pictures developed, I would put one on this blog, but I am just not that techno-savvy. Oh well. Maybe I need to date a computer geek so he can do it for me. But then, that would involve me having to date a computer geek, so maybe that is not such a good idea. This weekend I am going to go see HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH at Parliament House. For all of you in Orlando, I highly reccommend you go see this show. It is Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30. While I haven't seen this particular production, it is a great movie, was a great off-broadway show, and I have only heard good things about it. Hope to see you there!

Men are like a fine wine. They all start out like grapes, and it's our job to stomp on them and keep them in the dark where they will mature into something you'd want to have dinner with.

Here are some funny qoutes (since I myself, having nothing to say today):
---A lot of guys think the larger a woman's breasts are, the less intelligent she is. I don't think it works like that. I think it's the
opposite. I think the larger a woman's breasts are, the less intelligent men become. Anita Wise
---I wanted to be the first woman to burn her bra, but it would have taken the fire department four days to put it out. Dolly Parton
---I tell women, go and masturbate! Get loads of kinky books and masturbate every day! They do it from the age of nine! Bjork
---Cinderella lied to us. There should be a Betty Ford Center where they deprogram you by putting you in an electric chair, play Some Day My Prince Will Come and hit you and go 'Nobody's coming, nobody's coming, nobody's coming... Judy Carter
---The closest I've ever come to saying "no" is "Not now, we're landing." Ted Danson
---There is nothing safe about sex. There never will be.
Norman Mailer
---So why can't they make tampons that are "ribbed for my pleasure"? Jenni Elion
---Never before have I encountered such corrupt and foul-minded perversity! Have you ever considered a career in the Church? Rowan Atkinson
---The Bible contains 6 admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision. Lynn Lavner
---The only thing about masturbation to be ashamed of is doing it badly. Sigmund Freud
Anyway, as you can see, someone with boredom and a computer can find all sorts of crap.

Lake Mary, FL...So, I went and saw Terminator 3 last night. Does anyone else notice that the Terminator trilogy is a prequel to the Matrix trilogy? I mean, in Terminator, the humans fight the machines to keep them from taking over. In the Matrix, the humans fight the machines to regain control. So basically, the one is a prequel for the other. Even the shots in the terminator of "after the attack" have that dark, gray look like the Matrix has. Oh well. Terminator was a dissappointed though. The first two films had more character development and more depth to the plot. Also, the first two talked about the whole "paradox of time travel" thing. This movie was all special effects, fight scenes, and chase scenes. But it was worth seeing just to see Arnold Schwarzenegger (I have no idea if I spelled that right) say "Talk to the Hand".
This is a summer with lots of movies. Still waiting to see "Legally Blonde 2", "Pirates of the Carribbean" (Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom dressed as pirates, Yummmm!", and "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" (even though they are changing it, Mina Harker is the leader in the book, not Allan Quatermain). I saw Hulk a few days ago, really bad movie, but it is worth seeing just for the five seconds that Stan Lee is on the screen. (Boy, am I a comic book geek or what?)
