12:43 pm: OK, so if I had bothered to look, I would have noticed the music on the CG album was written and performed by Air, so it probably isn't so much of a coincidence that it sounds like Air...

Current Mood: embarrassedembarrassed
12:31 pm: I love it when things work out
I just scored an advance copy of Charlotte Gainsbourg's album at Amoeba Records on Monday and I love it! It's totally my cup of tea, electronica in the spirit of really good Air, Black Cherry era Goldfrapp. Hooray for me!

06:52 pm: Bored, bored, bored
So Christian slipped out early this morning to visit Jessica and will hopefully be home in an hour or so. I avoided the TV all day in order to avoid learning the score of the Germany-Portugal match, except to watch a Tivo suggestion called It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I'm pretty sure that this will become Christian's new favorite show. I should be doing laundry but I'm hot and bored, bored, bored. I'm contemplating going to a sports bar or pub to watch the final match tomorrow to squeeze in every last minute of my newfound love of soccer, laughing at the absurdity of the notion given my hate of sports and eveb bigger hate of sportsbars and their patrons.

09:32 am: I got all excited because one of the computers was free. I got even more excited when I saw that I had a new email. Then I saw that it wasn't from Christian, but from my mom...Then I went on live journal and not only had X not posted anything, but he hadn't replied to seahorse's query of a religious nature. Then I got worried...Then I remembered that he said he was starting work at 8 am on Friday, which apparently is today, and it is notthat time yet in California. Alas. My second to last day in Panama, but my companion/interpreter is sleeping. He went out with the ladies last night in the wee hours. I respectfully declined but can't wait to hear about their adventures. I really just don't speak any Spanish at all. And forget what you may have heard. They don't speak English. Yesterday we went to a national park which is right inside Panama City and saw some nature and beautiful views. There are many beautiful beaches here, but I stupidly managed to sunburn the HELL out of my ears (FIRST TIME EVER, with my thick hair by having my hair pulled back all day) in addition to a few other random and grossly unattractive spots such as around my belly button, some stripes on my feet for instance, so I'm inclined to stay away from equator strength sunshine for the next day and a half. Call me crazy. My biggest adventures have been trying to learn how to use that damn digital camera, running out of batteries, running out of memory just as wewere pulling our boat up to the most pristine beautiful island about the size of three house lots in the states, with one hut on it that one Kuna family lives in on it. Clear blue water and white sand beach and no memory and the manual was back in our room and no stores for the next 24 hours at least. Oh well you'll just have to take my word for it. Not a lot of Americans out here, but a LOT of Brits and Europeans. Anyway , bye for now...

11:15 pm: notes on panama keyboards are strange and forn. women don t wear shorts. at all. but they do wear really tight jeans. it s like the uniform. seriously. fried yuca is yummy. gotta go.

07:51 am: Greetings from Panama! LiveJournal is all in Spanish and this keyboard sucks as much as my typing, so bear with me. Panama is hot and humid but so far we are impressed. Just have a few minutes, we are going to go see the canal and eat Panamanian food! We went shopping today but I managed to lose xianrex s sizes so I didn t spend too much money yet!

03:56 pm: panama
I officially decided today that I am going to Panama with two coworkers in April. I've done a tiny bit of research and it sounds really cool. I also just found out some extremely dangerous information...I just read that hotels in Panama are expensive for Latin America--you should expect to pay upwards of $20 per night.

And to all you starwatchers, B.J. Honeycutt went on my flight to Oakland today (O.K. Mike Farell). And Kevin Cronin, Bruce Hall and Bryan Hitt of REO Speedwagon went on my Phoenix flight.

And the guy who lives downstairs went on my Vegas flight.

My life is so glamorous;)

09:37 am: Once again, I got less than six hours sleep, AND I woke up with a migraine as a bonus:( But, on a good note, the washing machine is working and I have staked my claim. Hah! And, I came inside and wanted some music, so I turned on the TV. Of course, MTV and VH1 are not playing videos, but Fuse is, and when I put it on that channel, the first notes of "Hysteria" by Muse started playing. Bliss.

10:17 am: ashlee simpson
I just watched SNL last night on my Tivo, oblivious to the Ashlee Simpson debacle. Did anyone else see this? I am not a cruel person by nature, so I feel sorry for her, but do you really think you should recieve millions of dollars and fame for being a singer when you can't sing? When we watched last week's show, I had commented with disgust that SNL used to choose interesting and talented musical acts after they announced Ashlee as next week's guest. Christian said they had sold out long ago. How ironic that this would be her undoing...
