The Power of the Babysitter

So, my cousin is on her sec­ond year now at UCB. I have been assigned to be the Paci­fier and look over her by my aunt. I just want to share how’s it going, and show a lit­tle bit of what Jedi power I have. Here’s a lit­tle some­thing that just occurred a while ago when I was ready to go to bed. I was about to close down IM when I saw her login and just decided to say the following…

[00:22] me: go to sleep
[00:22] me: gnite
[00:22] me: lates

Mistaken Identity

So, it was a busy Mon­day morn­ing. Lots of stuff to do and get done before I head on out for LA this upcom­ing Fri­day night. Not to men­tion, what a looong drive it’ll be as I’m going with the one, the only… Ms. Jenn V. (soon to be “G”).

Mean­while Cy IMed me about some funny, ran­dom thoughts. This is what ensued (I’ll hide the iden­tity of the per­son being talked about till I get their (i.e. “Y”) okay haha):

[11:27] cy: hey
[11:27] cy: is “Y” a lesbian?
[11:27] me: haha what?
[11:27] me: haha
[11:28] me: fun­ni­est shit i’ve ever heard come out from you haha
[11:28] cy: cause i’m look­ing at her myspace
[11:28] cy: and it says ‘in a relationship”
[11:28] cy: and the only pic i see is her hold her friends leg really close
[11:28] me: w/ a dude named “X”
[11:28] me: haha
[11:28] cy: like a lez
[11:28] cy: *pasted the URL of the photo*
[11:29] me: oh man
[11:29] me: haha

[11:29] cy: LAWL

[11:36] cy: so i’m all out of the loop
[11:36] cy: and since i’m not oppsed to the gays… hey, any­one could be any­one you know? LOL

Cat, Kancho and Japan

So, Joe­mama had to back out of our Japan Dis­cov­ery Tour in Novem­ber. How­ever, we were for­tunte enough to have Cat come along and join in on the fun. Mean­while, I guess she was talk­ing to Ryan about it and I guess they had a con­ver­sa­tion about “kan­cho”. She didn’t know what it was… till now:

[15:06] cat: ryan said i can’t play kanchu? w/the big boys yet
[15:06] me: haha
[15:06] cat: what’s it called?
[15:06] me: kancho
[15:06] cat: oh yeah, i’m gonna look that up right now
… (sec­onds later)
[15:07] cat: ewww! i don’t want to play, i just looked it up on wikipedia!

The 70–200 Conversation

So, I haven’t done one of these in a while. I was con­vers­ing with Juan about what gear to pack for my Big Island trip next week. Com­ing up with at least these: 

  • 20D + SD400
  • 17–35/2.8–4
  • 28–75/2.8
  • bat­ter­ies + chargers

He then sug­gested to bring the 70–200 as well. Now, for those non-shutterbug geeks, this lens is huge and heavy but it packs a wallop.

Any­ways, here’s how it ended:

juan: (-) addi­tional weight w/ the above pack
juan: ?!?!?!?!?!?
juan: what good is work­ing out if you can’t carry an extra 10 pounds?!
juan: wuss
juan: I’ll fight you

Money-matters

While talk­ing about ING Direct’s increased inter­est rate (i.e. 3.3% from 3.0%):

me (10:43:26 PM): didn’t you want my finan­cial advisor’s con­tact info?
juan (10:44:38 PM): im good for now, i want to start sav­ing some money before investing
me (10:45:02 PM): ummm thats an oxymoron
