at work some poor, utterly oblivious man was shopping with his son. they were there to buy music for the boy, who might have been eight or nine years old. and he wanted the d12 record. as i showed it to them i told the father, "this record is in no way age appropriate." then the kid picks up the g-unit album. and as the father looked at me, i just shook my head. it was hard not to laugh, since this little white kid in a soccer jersey was trying to get thugged out so hard. we finally all settle on the beastie boys, which still has the adult language but as the father told me, "i'm not prude. i remember when everyone thought the beatles were bad." to which i replied, "they were loud with long hair. these rappers are very specific."
in other music news, the new kd lang album is entitled hymns from the 49th parallel. please tell me that it bothers you as much as it bothers me. north or south kd? north or south? its not asking too much when entire hemispheres are involved.

at the store depending on your job you get access to more or less of the computer system. turns out that this is done by assigning levels to each person, and each level dictates what you can or can't do. well one of my bosses and i were going through all the stuff i should be able to do, and he upped me from a 0 to a 1 to make it possible.
so, yesterday at work i leveled up.
i also got a missed call from an area code in western kentucky, which i thought was all kinds of weird.

i saw wilco tonight, they were ok but it really just struck me as a chance for way too many people to stroke the egos of too few people. it was a text book evening though, get to the club just after they start, watch most of the set from the best seats in the house, cut out just before the end. mission accomplished.
screw big belly deli, i'm not eating there anymore. today they messed up my sandwich for a record third time, but i didn't catch it until i said, "wow, this fake turkey is way too good to be fake." so i've now been vegan for about 9 hours. what the fuck.
i'm kind of at a loss for what to do with myself for the rest of the evening. maybe dishes...we'll see.
