Not sure what I think of the rest of the album — “Way To Normal” — just yet. Ben Folds is best when he’s writing straight up keyboard-pop songs and not slowing down, which is why “You Don’t Know Me” works so damn well.

i would like to travel to Austrailia just to visit this amazing Marie Antoinette inspired hair salon that comes adorn with beautiful antique decor as well as fresh cupcakes!  yummy!  what a combo!

what would be even MORE AMAZING is if they were sprinkles cupcakes.  although i have never actually tasted them, i know they must be amazing.  (at least the GND think they are!)  i really need to visit their shop, which they just open in Palo Alto.

this hair salon & cup cake talk makes me want to watch Marie Antoinette all over again.  the scene wear Kirsten Dunst goes crazy over shoes, cupcakes, and other scrumptious treats is like a girl’s dream come true!

i guess she’s going public September 24, 2008

it’s been a rumor for some while now.  Hugh Hefner and Holly Madison keep on denying it, but the fact remains the same: Holly and Criss Angel are an item.  they were spotted openly kissing and dancing in Vegas.  WHY??!?!?!??!  Holly was Hef’s number one girlfriend & he was her “Puffin.”

that makes me a big grossed out.  i wish she would choose someone who isn’t a scumbag.  i mean come on, he’s an illusionist?  really?  and what about GND (Girls Next Door)????  i know Hef advised that the girls will be receiving their own shows, but dammit!  it’s not the same.  grrrr….

i loved the Portal and really enjoyed watching pk play it.  it’s like a giant puzzle, which are the types of games that i like to play, and i felt that i could lend my problem solvin’ skills every once in awhile.  plus, i mean, the song at the end is SO CATCHY!  it’s even in Rock Band!  i love it.

i watch the new trailer for the next game.  it looks interesting.  i can’t wait to see it for reals.  and wondering if we will get another sweet tune at the end…

as an avid & obsessed fan of GND (Girls Next Door), i was shocked, upset, and down right broken hearted when i heard the rumors of Holly leaving the mansion for a dirty ol’ scumbag named Criss Angel.  well, rumors have  been denied and i couldn’t be more overjoyed.  can’t wait for that season 5!  also, apparently hef wants the girls to have their own spinoffs!!!  OMG?!?!?!!  a show solely dedicated to Ms. Madison!  i would be overjoyed.  and would bridget get her own DIY, martha stewert-esque show????  the possibilities are endless!

Turns out I suffer from…Telephonophobia? September 17, 2008

For a long, long time I’ve experienced mild-to-annoying factors of stress when faced with the prospect of using a telephone. It happens most often when someone is calling me, especially so if I don’t know who they are. Whereas other people don’t answer unknown calls out of principle, I do it because it causes me a relatively mild panic attack.

I always thought it was a result of my mostly defeated social anxieties, but it’s actually…telephonophobia.

Telephonophobia is the fear of telephones. I’m not talking about that actual telephone itself, I am referring to making and receiving phone calls. Social anxiety is a fear of being judged by others, as well as fearing social situations. Those suffering social anxiety may also have telephonophobia which is the fear of telephones.

The symptoms have never stopped me from doing my job, but I’d joked to Katie that perhaps it was actually a phobia others shared. Turns out it is. I never knew I had an obscure phobia! You learn something new every day.
