2.14pm: HEY.
 
i've dropped that twitter posting thing and don't come around here much lately except to read some people's blogs, which i can mostly do via RSS now anyway. so what i'm saying is this: LJ, we're through. we had some good times back in the day.

here is: my blog (it's chocmussolini on lj), my twitter, my facebook, my million photos on flickr. please add me in one or more of those places if you want to keep in touch!

adios, 'migos.

  • 17:14 listened to dancehall on the way to the gym and reggaeton while there. caribbean hiphiphop kills two straight days of rain dead. #
  • 19:10 I'm at Marla's Caribbean Cuisine with @agent_zero. #
  • 21:14 there's a place in waseca where you can drive tanks. i have a new life goal, now that kissing the stanley cup has been checked off the list. #

  • 10:43 we decided to start the personal finance fight club. our job is to go around punching people who are about to make terrible money decisions. #
  • 13:41 the baked goods in the office, if laid out end to end, would reach des moines. it's impressive. #
  • 17:25 i'm 100 feet from the stanley cup right now. i'm going to fall over from awesome. #
  • 17:57 WE JUST KISSED THE STANLEY CUP!!! this is the greatest day ever. #
  • 21:02 i'm knitting two cashmere socks at the same time, using 2 circular needles. i may never knit a pair of items separately again. #

  • 10:29 matt's watching tractor pulls on espn. the tournament needs to start again asap. #
  • 10:36 i'm way too excited that bemidji is in the ncaa tournament. go beavers! #
  • 12:36 we have the cleanest house in the universe. i even vacuumed out the whole front porch, and now i'm going to sweep the back patio. #
  • 15:57 my parents just brought over my bike and the arbor i built in community ed woodshop. have i mentioned i'm really in love with our yard? #
  • 17:19 it's usually more like 15 or 20. #
  • 17:21 i have a mental block about replying to @twodolla, i guess. unless anyone else needs their tire patched, too, that's what it costs. #
  • 20:50 I'm at Chiang Mai Thai (3001 Hennepin Ave, Calhoun Square, Twin Cities) . #
  • 21:01 I'm at Famous Dave's BBQ & Blues (3001 Hennepin Ave) . #
  • 22:54 they played 'no woman, no cry'. i cried. someday i'll get over how awesome jamaica was. #

  • 11:16 another sioux fan's on his way to pick up tix. sadly, matt doesn't seem amenable to putting on his gophers jersey and fighting on the lawn. #
  • 12:21 i lost a surprising amount of weight this week. i'm very excited about that! #
  • 14:09 sioux vs badgers: i'm rooting for arena collapse. #
  • 16:23 we got a patio set at target! two kids from the stockroom helped us because they couldn't get over my car. love it. #
  • 17:19 i'm so in love with our yard. i haven't had this since i sold my house 5 years ago. we have a huge garden and a patio and firepit! #
  • 19:06 grilled: pineapple, red potatoes, broccoli, plantain, marinated tofu. i managed to make tofu good!! #
  • 19:49 there is one reason i'm sad i'm not at the wcha championship game: they handed out red foam rock hands. otherwise i'm very glad. #
  • 20:27 LAME #
  • 20:32 sorry, twitter, that was specially for @twodolla. she forgot to text me instead of the internet. #
  • 21:34 holy crap! the gophers were the only team able to score even a single goal on stalock. that dude is a monster. good work, junior college!! #
  • 22:23 Hey, I'm at Schooner Tavern with @agent_zero. #
  • 22:37 there's not a single hipster here. we may even be the youngest people. there's an amazing band playing. i love this place. #
  • 22:42 there's a cop telling a story about being tased. and a guy who's not in the band playing harmonica along with the band. #
  • 00:00 a hobo just rubbed up on me. #

  • 08:07 hardest thing i've ever done? the breast cancer 3-day. second hardest? leaving matt in bed on his day off and going to work. #
  • 08:41 15/16 in one of my brackets so far. espn should totally hire me! #
  • 10:26 washington ave is aswarm with NDSU fans. usually i'd want to go beat them up, but today they're alright by me. it's their first dance! #
  • 13:31 sold our tix to the und-umd game tonight! i kind of wanted to have the dude surprise matt at the house, but i'm far too nice for that. #
  • 14:56 leaving work early to head to the gym. i'm going to put hockey on 1 tv, and basketball on 3 others. #sportsgasm #
  • 18:01 dear regulars: we're watching the sioux lose and ohio state win at home, then going out later. keep us apprised of your whereabouts. #
  • 19:27 i have very little love for UMD (junior college!), but they're putting such a beatdown on north dakota right now. so awesome. #
  • 20:38 we invented the best drink ever: appleton infused with fresh pineapple and allspice, splash of grand marnier, soda, and orange bitters. #
  • 20:53 man. choosing between the sioux debacle and titus warming the ohio state bench is seriously difficult. hurry up, hockey! #
  • 21:29 the sioux getting shut out might be my 2nd favorite final five moment ever. stalock has been incredible. um, go denver? #
  • 23:06 we've been ready to leave the house for over half an hour, but basketball is killing us. finally, some really great games. #suckitbucky #

  • 13:06 um, memphis? we need to talk. #
  • 13:20 @cgbrummond i picked them to win in one of my many brackets. good thing i have many, i guess! #

  • 18:20 Hey, I'm at The Liffey with @agent_zero. #
  • 18:45 Hey, I'm at Xcel Energy Center (175 Kellogg Blvd W, at West 7th, Twin Cities) . #
  • 19:01 waiting for the teams to be announced. have i mentioned this is my favorite thing ever?? #finalfive #
  • 20:06 kangas is gone and our 3rd guy is dressed. what happened?? #
  • 20:36 there's a sign here for liquid ice energy drink, the basis of chuck norris shots. we've only ever seen that in south dakota. #
  • 21:00 i've never heard it so loud in here. except when wheeler got that goal... #bestsportsmomentever #
  • 21:28 on the plus side, i'm going to have a hell of a lot more cash tomorrow. it's up to the last remaining minnesota team to beat the sioux! #
  • 21:41 holy crap, sore losers suck. that's just kind of ugly. #
  • 21:53 Hey, I'm at The Happy Gnome with @agent_zero. #

  • 08:07 happy birthday to @twodolla! you may be old, but you're still awesome. #
  • 12:44 yesterday, we made a list of foods depressed people eat. i still can't top 'frosting straight from the plastic jar'. i think that wins! #
  • 14:56 kellen briggs is playing for the sabres' farm team. if he's called up someday and they play the bruins, i will pass out from ex-gopher love. #
  • 17:25 time for wendys birthday happy hour! (ps: I'm at Grumpy's Downtown) #
  • 17:31 wendy's about to do a shot called the sandinista. it has sriracha in it. i don't think i spelled that right. #
  • 18:58 some really drunk dude nobody knows is buying wendy a shot. her current count is four. #
  • 19:22 shot count: 5 plus a melotini. @twodolla is going to die. #
  • 20:32 ack! the house was dark when i got home. @agent_zero is still at ryan's. i should've gone out with @fontosaurus and kate. #

  • 08:34 happy st patrick's day!! i met my boyfriend, @agent_zero, three years ago today. not coincidentally, they've been the best 3 years ever. #
  • 11:34 i have $101 in my wallet, which is completely useless to me in the pop machine. it's a great excuse to go outside and find a store, though! #
  • 17:17 i saw a girl drive up, swipe her card, and leave, just to get the discount at the gym. i think her integrity is valued at $20 a month. #
  • 18:44 Hey, I'm at Liquor Lyle's with @agent_zero. #
  • 18:53 there's a dead eddie cochran overlooking o'meshbeshers. i don't know what to think about that. #
  • 20:01 Hey, I'm at CC Club (2600 S Lyndale Ave) . #
  • 21:13 redheaded sluts at cc club for wendy's birthday in 3 hours. five of us are probably going to be sad tomorrow. #
  • 21:28 'to teabaggin some post toasties!' -someone who is not me. #

  • 08:05 i shouldn't listen to reggae on the way to work. my roll does not need to be slowed on a monday morning. #
  • 13:33 the strib/wcco needs to upgrade their bracket-building technology by several years. radio buttons? javascript? really? #
  • 15:04 there's a car flipped on its side on the corner of 5th ave and 3rd street. crazy. we can see it from here! #
  • 16:35 i only have to stay late at work about once every 6 months, but it makes me crabby every time. particularly when it's almost 70 outside. #
  • 20:38 going to pre-bowl with our team, since we can't make it thursday. also, twitter's sms is screwed up AGAIN. #overrated #
  • 20:56 Hey, I'm at AMF Southtown Lanes with @agent_zero. #
  • 22:19 i bowled 118, 138, 117. i'm such a pro now! also, 'the final countdown' came on during the 10th frame in our last game. #

  • 12:40 now that it's nice enough to be in the outdoors, i'm kind of disappointed in every meal that wasn't charred on the grill. #
  • 14:36 like the entire rest of minneapolis, we were out walking along the creek. it's so gorgeous out! #
  • 17:29 the gophers made the ncaa tournament!! i have to go fill out my 250 brackets shortly. #
  • 18:44 grill status: full. sweet potato quesadilla, bread, steak, rum-soaked pineapple. we're eating the salsa matt made on the grill earlier. #

  • 11:12 ok, @foursquare (the thing that sends 'hey, i'm at ___ with ___') is even better than dodgeball. love it. #
  • 12:08 they just ran a commercial for warroad during the high school hockey tournament. 'want to have frostbite 300 days a year? move here!' #
  • 12:29 congrats to pete and christa! they had a baby this morning! #
  • 14:53 blake wheeler's high school won the state title... hopefully his college will fare as well tonight! #

  • 17:59 baking french bread and waiting for my sister to show up with victory cake. after that: hockey!!! #
  • 20:35 2nd intermission means we're going the stanky legg again. you guys need to catch up. #
  • 21:16 we're going to the final five!!!! #
  • 21:21 pete and christa had a baby, andy and kristin got engaged, and the gophers earned a spot in the final five. today is fucking awesome. #
  • 22:20 going to a party to celebrate the engagement. and pi day. and steak and a blowjob day, though possibly not in public. we'll see. #
  • 22:57 i was kissed by a girl within 10 minutes of arriving at the party. win. #

  • 08:35 i heard 'push it' on the way to work . today can be nothing less than awesome. also: HOCKEY!!!! #gogophers #
  • 09:48 overnight, all the flights to san juan on nwa switched to delta. and went up $50. nice work, guys. #
  • 11:10 as unlikely as it is: go (basketball) gophers! also, is foursquare the new dodgeball? i will seriously be so happy. #
  • 11:12 oh my god, it IS dodgeball. sad, abandoned dodgeball users, go here! playfoursquare.com/ #
  • 16:07 weekend!! i'm going to the gym to get all the healthiness over and done with. #
  • 17:47 we're grilling. i'm in flipflops. i love 40-degree summer in minnesota. #
  • 18:47 preparing for the game. we decided to not watch in public, because one or both of us could get in a bar fight. go gophers!!! #
  • 20:25 my phone thinks 'hat trick' and 'gay truck' are the same. that could cause problems. #
  • 20:47 massive personal failure: not making a video of @agent_zero doing the stanky legg. i almost had a stroke from laughing. #
  • 21:20 gophers win! ...my nerves can't take this. #
  • 21:55 um, element closed? the place that used to be foundation? where do you go to dance to hiphop now? #
  • 22:37 Hey, I'm at Kieran's Irish Pub with @agent_zero. #
  • 23:05 we've been out for less than an hour and i already have too many stories. like stately wayne manor. and our favorite cop in minneapolis. #
  • 23:27 matt thinks i should drink free at all irish bars by virtue of having a joyce quote tattooed on my chest. i like this idea. #

  • 09:11 the gophers playoff broadcast schedule has become 10 times more confusing. channel 210 magically appears at 7pm? is it free or not? #
  • 11:47 anyone know how to make a conditional signature in gmail? like, one that will only display if you email from a particular address? #
  • 13:02 the gophers are about to beat northwestern. they'll play michigan state tomorrow. and, uh... that's going to be rough! #
  • 17:45 i worked my legs a little too hard at the gym, and now they're gummy. if i suck (more than usual) at bowling, that's my excuse! #
  • 19:08 there are now 6 people at bowling with worse averages than mine. this is a big deal! #
  • 21:22 i think i bowled my best series ever tonight. now we have to go win trivia! #
  • 00:34 this is a momentous day: we did not win. neither did our rivals, who are sitting here with us. first time we've ever had to pay our tab! #

  • 16:14 just got free tix to the wolves game, courtesy of @suzi109, by way of @twodolla. suzi, quit twittering from the beach! #
  • 18:51 the douchetree's playing 'no woman, no cry'. i may, in fact, cry. also, midget leprechaun wrestling on st patrick's day. #
  • 19:18 dear @suzi109, i can actually see k-love's face from here. whoa. #
  • 22:24 we just left a bar as lita ford came on. that might be a good choice, or the biggest mistake ever. #

  • 09:34 i've joined my first of approximately 400 bracket competitions. hopefully my performance here will make up for my 6 losses on espn streak. #
  • 13:18 guys. i'm going to see tim howard in june. i'm pretty sure only 4 of you will know who that is. sorry. #
  • 16:09 please note that this snow isn't flakes. it looks like tiny hairs. #
  • 17:21 arrived home to find a present waiting from the @wienermobile. thanks, guys!! tinyurl.com/akr4ot #

  • 12:39 divorcey the wife is back! i even had to talk to her this time, since my coworker's at lunch. at least she's not crying today. #workdrama #
  • 15:10 one of the boys here has amazingly bad b.o., to the point where i was smelling myself to be sure it wasn't me. ew. #
  • 17:05 i hit myself on the lip while lifting. don't ask. it's swelling in a very sexy way! #
  • 17:40 on our way to the casino to hang out with matt's parents, who are driving back from the gulf coast. we haven't seen them in a while! #

  • 11:23 i can say 'backdoor' in hockey seriously, but in basketball it cracks me up every time. go tall gophers!! #
  • 15:29 i wonder if our neighbors consider spending the night elsewhere when they see us carrying in multiple bags from the liquor store. #
  • 17:29 man, it's been a rough day for minnesotan sports. hoping the gophers can turn it around for once. home ice is still up for grabs! #
  • 19:27 tech's ice has ufos on it. 'a frigid place gets a blast from space.' #
  • 19:38 dear gophers, please continue with the winning. nobody wants to begin a party crabby. #
  • 21:50 first important question of the night (from @fontosaurus): where do you crucify R2-D2? #
  • 04:35 gophers win!! home ice! now it's time for shenanigans to commence. #
  • 06:21 the men of the party have consumed tonic wine from jamaica. there if much in the way of vigor and possibly pregnancy. #

  • 08:03 guy in the elevator just guessed that i worked for the software company, not the lawyers, because i look "smart, but not devious". hahaha! #
  • 09:12 we decided to have an impromptu party at our house tomorrow night. it's ok to leave work to go to the liquor store, right? #
  • 09:40 citigroup trading at $1. i couldn't resist buying. sorry, emergency fund! #
  • 11:30 i swear i'm making a list of friends to remember to invite to parties. maybe like a bulk email list. i always forget at least a couple. #
  • 12:20 it's 41 outside. mary and i are going to find us some sol y comida! #
  • 17:00 talking on the phone at the gym: 10% social ineptitude + 90% disregard for others, or just 100% douchepipery? #
  • 17:46 listen, gophers. please do this!! #skiumah #
  • 19:29 this game is going to give me an aneurysm. 4-4 after the 2nd. gophers scored 2 goals in the last 30 seconds of the period. #
  • 20:05 the tech band was just playing "motherfuckin' p.i.m.p." i love them way more than the team they'e supporting. #
  • 20:34 sometimes being a fan is painful. i have faith til the end! and now... we're going to go meet people at the dragon of the south. #
  • 00:10 dodgeball just officially shut down. the nerd in me is really sad, re: actual social app for people who go out and know people. lame. #
  • 04:18 'i love this bar' was playing when we came in. the bartender is amazing. there are pulltabs everywhere. i do indeed love this bar. #
  • 05:20 we're following doran to a place named zeke's. which may be code for murder. we'll find out. #
