Just because (or, it's late, I'm bored, and I don't want to go to sleep yet)

So I was really bored at work this past week and my work buddy at Tribeca (my fellow intern) said I should create a Myspace page. I think Myspace is utterly ridiculous and very, very inane. But, I was bored, and she was insistent, mostly because she too was bored and wanted something to read (assuming I'd come up with something clever for my Myspace page). So now I have a myspace page. It's really lame, and I don't plan on really doing anything with it. I'm just keeping it until said buddy/fellow intern gets bored with it and then I'll take it down. I only mention this out of a interest of full disclosure, so no one thinks I'm hiding anything, I’m letting you know of my newest secret embarrassment (yes I am embarrassed, I now - albeit temporarily - have become a myspace person. Grahh!).

Luckily however, I shall not be alone in my embarrassment. Below you'll find a video of the aforementioned co-worker. As you'll notice she has a strange obsession with one of the dances from an older iPod commercial. This is actually her (I took it from her Myspace page) not some random video I found, so keep your minds out of the gutter. Don't worry though, she wears more at work.




Final note: J_ recently said that she thinks I should stop blogging about my daily adventures and devote this blog to essays/articles about pop culture and such (probably reviews of movies/comics/tv/ ect. As well). I don’t' think I really have the background to do this competently, and I said I probably wouldn't do that. Only the more I think about it, the more I wonder. I wonder how it would affect the few readers that I have if I did in fact change this blog? Would it be a change you'd all appreciate or something you'd rather not read? I can't say that I'd change my mind based on any of your thoughts, as J_ does have the most sway, I'm just curious what you all think.

All right, carry on then....

I'd be more than willing to read what ever you post buddy. I certainly think you have the knowledge and background to write about pop culture.

No comment on the MySpace thing except to say that the restaurant chain "Chili's" has a MySpace page. I think that pretty much sums up the lameness ;)

Hmmmmm....MySpace....I agree with Nonny on that....

You should post whatever you find interesting.

That's why it's your blog, right?

I, too, have a myspace page. But, I have a very good reason: I can monitor my kids' activities (I do this, ocassionally, but not often) online. Oldest's boyfriend's mom seems to be trying to recruit me as she keeps leaving comments, but I refuse to be swayed. Besides, I'm not 14, a band or business looking for more business, or able to keep up with more than one thing at a time. Blogging comes first...myspace is just something else I feel obligated to check on once or twice a month.

you just want us to know you work with a hot chick - am I right? am I right?

nonny and big pissy - It's not about being told to post something I didn't want to, and upon further discussion she wasn't saying that I should stop blogging about my daily stuff, just that I should also blog about the pop stuff, since I'm always going on about that stuff in real life.

Friday - Myspace is a pain like that, which is why I don't plan on keeping my page for very long.

Rawbean - I haven't come up with a clever url for my myspace page which is why I haven't put up a link to it. Also, said co-workers hotness is not why I put up the video - I work with hot people at Starbucks who I could picture, but they aren't funny, or embaressing like I think this one is. Though honestly, her hotness doesn't hurt.
