Smokin’!

Seriously.

How hot is Aiyahh in this pic?

Aiyahh wears a jozjozjoz shirt

Tee hee!

This is the most skin I’ll be showing on my blog, thankyouverymuch…

If you don’t like graphic photographs, I suggest you come back another day.

If you are morbidly curious of what my back looked like after getting poked 60 times with different allergens, then click the following link.

Photo from Joz’s Allergy Test

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

If you haven’t been grossed out completely, I invite you back (har har!) tomorrow for more regularly scheduled jozjozjoz programming.

P.S. – Six hours later, my back still has welts… mostly from the pollen pokes.

you think you’re allergic!??!!??!?!

joz’s allergy results (pictures, i’m sure, to follow):

Joz’s Allergy Results. EEW!

yoshi’s allergy results (no pictures to follow. thank god.):

Yoshi’s allergy results. double EEW!

for those who can’t read that chicken scratch, a dash means no allergy, 1 is slightly allergic and 4 is very highly allergic. joz’s allergist was concerned because of the number and severity of her allergies, but i’m convinced that between the two of us and even amongst our friends, these kinds of results are pretty normal…

Itchy.

This afternoon I have an appointment with an allergist. I seem to be allergic to the world and I’m hoping the allergist will prove otherwise. Of course, if I’m really allergic to everything then I’ll have a whole other set of problems to deal with.

I’d just like to be able to avoid whatever it is that makes me Itchy, Sneezy, Splotchy, Hivey… or anything else that could be mistaken for one of the Seven Dwarves.

Unfortunately, I’ve been off antihistamines and other allergy meds since last Friday. Which means I’m a mess and I don’t feel like myself today.

More proof that I’m not myself today: I’m going to the doctor on my own volition and willingly letting them poke and prod me with about 40 needles + known allergens. *cry*

So really, the question is: Who am I and what happened to Joz?!

Oops.

I just found something that I started in 2002 but never finished…

Nuh uh, stkyrice…

WE are gonna win the $256 million, dammit!!!

No winner on 2/24/2006 in the California Lottery

Joz & Yoshi’s Retirement Plan

$212 million, bay-bee!

Joz's Special Lottery Ticket

Wish us luck tonight!

UPDATE: DOH! Oh well… Looks like we’ll have to go with Plan B… putting money into our IRAs. *sigh*

For someone who got 2 and a half hours of sleep…

…I only kind of look like a zombie.

Oh yeah. I’ve been at work since 9am this morning and I left my desk exactly once (at noon) to go to the restroom. I was gone for maybe 2 minutes tops.

When I got back, I had 3 new voicemails waiting for me. WTF?!?!

I’m so close, I can taste it…

MAYBE I will get to bed by 5:30. That means if I sleep until 7:30, I will get a whole two hours…

Let’s see how I do…

UPDATE @ 5:27a: How much does this rule?! I’LL GET TWO HOURS OF SLEEP!

“The ruby slippers of our time…”

brokebackauction.jpgTom Gregory, gay activist and partner of David Bohnett (founder of GeoCities and the David Bohnett Foundation) just spent over a hundred thousand dollars on eBay for two used shirts. Granted, they are the shirts that Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhall wore in Brokeback Mountain, but still.

Someday I’d like to know what it feels like to blow $100k on clothes I’m never going to wear.

‘Brokeback’ shirts go for $100,000

Money to go to charity

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) — Tom Gregory just spent more than $100,000 on two used cowboy shirts.

And he couldn’t be happier.

The shirts are the ones worn by the ill-fated lovers, played by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal, in Oscar front-runner “Brokeback Mountain.” The shirts that represent their relationship. The shirts that, to Gregory, represent the ongoing plight of gays for acceptance in society.

“They really are the ruby slippers of our time,” said Gregory, 45.

A longtime gay activist, Gregory plans to keep the shirts “as they were, on the hanger, entwined.”

“I would never wear them, put them on, or separate them,” he said.

Gregory logged his winning bid — $101,100.51 — just 28 seconds before the 10-day auction came to a close on Monday. [full story]

::planet out interview’s tom gregory on the purchase::

I desperately need more time.

Who do I petition to get more than 24 hours in a day?

Yay for sleep.

I’ll take what I can get.

My list of things to do is pages long.

Seriously.

Pages.

Eeek.

Crap.

A whole day went by… just like that.

I overate at dinner, but boy was it good. My fat pants are too tight right now.

Gross.

Make your own birthday hat to wear for Yoshi's birthday!

Your pictures with a proper celebratory hat are welcome!

(Thanks in advance to the Blue’s Clues people for not suing me or sending me a cease & desist because I “borrowed” your silly little template for a birthday hat. Thanks also to Tak for helping a crazy, sleep-deprived chick named jozjozjoz!)

Are you feeling a bit of deja vu? That’s because I “recycled” this post from l year ago last year and the year before. I consider it a blessing for good things to return year after year. Although I will make a concerted effort to not repost the exact same thing next February 18th. Unless I want to make it a tradition… Who am I kidding?! IT IS A TRADITION NOW!

Perhaps…

…you are visiting in hopes of something smart, witty, and/or interesting to see.

My guess is that you’re disappointed.

The mother of all airline horror stories where someone doesn’t die.

Glad I’m not planning on flying Northwest anytime soon.

Roughly paraphrased…

“There is a stall with a broken lock. Please do not use it; you will get locked inside the stall. It will be fixed shortly. Thanks.”

Because my brain is fried…

… I resort to celebrity gossip*.

Kristy&Lloyd-Week5spin.jpgI blame the mass destruction of brain cells on sleep-deprivation coupled with a slight touch of insomnia, which I then treated at 4am on Monday morning with a dose of Skating With Celebrities. Hey, don’t judge me!

Anyway, I’ve been watching bits and pieces of this trainwreck on ice since the beginning and began rooting for Kristy Swanson & Lloyd Eisler about 3 weeks ago when her skating began to improve dramatically.

Then when I watched Week 5’s program a little “ding” went off in my head. They are SO an item! I went online to see if I could find anything, but all I saw were “rumors” that Kristy and Lloyd were dating. I saw nothing online that said that either Kristy or Lloyd were in relationships. So I thought it would be cool if there really were an item.

I told Yoshi about my suspicions. I got told that I needed to get more sleep.

Now Star Magazine is reporting that Lloyd left his wife of four years, Marcie, who is pregnant with their second child for Kristy! Here’s the snippet from the Detroit Free Press.

SEPARATED AT BIRTH?: Skating lovers had a shaky start

February 15, 2006

Star magazine is reporting that skater Lloyd Eisler and actress Kristy Swanson from the hit TV show “Skating with Celebrities” on Fox began as an awkward pair.
But by the end of the show’s taping in October, the couple had managed to salkow their way into a steamy love affair that broke up the marriage of Eisler and his very pregnant wife.

Within weeks of starting the affair, Eisler broke off his four-year marriage to Marcie, who was then eight months pregnant with their second child. Sources say that Swanson, whose credits include TV’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” forwarded Mrs. E. an e-mail that Lloyd had sent her confessing his love to her. Call her Kristy the Marriage Slayer!

According to Star, Marcie confronted Lloyd about it; she signed their separation agreement Nov. 30. Swanson and Eisler are still double-lutzing together and are expected to compete in the finals March 2.

However, on the Fox SwC Forums, Canadian fans say that Lloyd and Marcie’s separation was announced in the press in August of 2005… months before SwC even started taping.

More will be revealed…

All I knows is this: If I don’t get some sleep soon, I will be blogging about Britney and her lap baby. (Norm Mineta ROOOLZ!)

‘Incredible Hulk’ star Lou Ferrigno sworn in as LA County deputy

UPI News Service, 02/13/2006

TV’s “Incredible Hulk,” Lou Ferrigno, was sworn in Monday as a Los Angeles County reserve deputy sheriff.

Ferrigno, 53, was presented with a badge, baton and Beretta 92FS handgun, E! Onlne reported.

“I am proud to be able to do my part as part of the team and to help these brave and dedicated deputy sheriffs in keeping Los Angeles County safe for the people who live, work and visit here,” Ferrigno said in a statement.

Ferrigno will not be out on the street fighting crime, but will help recruit new classes of deputies and work with abused children.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Web site says reserve deputies put in 20 hours of service a month for an annual salary of $1.

There’s a “Hulk” joke in here, but I’ll leave it to you to come up with it.

Worse than our neighbor’s big dog who hasn’t stopped barking in an hour…

…is the woman who keeps sticking her head out the door and yelling “SHUT UP!!!! SHUT UP!!!” at it.

Wish I could be doing (almost) anything but what I’m supposed be doing right now…

Sigh.

Michelle Kwan is coming home

Stephen Munday/Getty ImagesBad news for fans of Michelle Kwan who wanted to see her capture the gold. Once the weather in the northeast clears up, Emily Hughes will be on her way to Turin.

Michelle says that she’s going to come back to the U.S. to not be a distraction.

Class, baby. Class all the way.

TURIN, Italy (AP) — Michelle Kwan’s decade-long quest for Olympic gold came to a sorrowful end Sunday when she withdrew because of an injury, taking the biggest name out of the Turin Games.

Kwan cut short her first practice of the games the day before after straining a groin muscle, and the injury worsened as the day wore on. She withdrew after Dr. Jim Moeller evaluated her early Sunday morning and recommended she not continue. [full story]

Dammit, Jim!

I need more time!
