10 Songs from 2001 Volume 7

“Flavor of the Weak” by American Hi-Fi

This one was on the cusp. Released at the end of 2000. Missed my 2000 song list. Oops! Well it’s here now in this blog. Another music video that parodies Heavy Metal Parking Lot. Less Than Jake did before them with “All My Best Friends Are Metalheads”

“The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World

I used to love this song before I went to college. I think I like “Sweetness” or “Bleed American” better now.

“It’s Been a While” by Staind

“Fat Lip” by Sum 41

Some annoying guy I used to go to high school with would quote this song and other punk songs all the time and try to work it into conversations.

“Crawling” by Linkin Park

“Wish You Were Here” by Incubus

I love the descriptive lyrics of this song.

“Peaches and Cream” by 112

I had a friend who really liked this song. I wonder if she still likes that song?

“When it’s Over” by Sugar Ray

“Stranger in My House” by Tamia

“I’m Already There (Message From Home) by Lonestar

“My Baby” by Lil’ Romeo

McDummy — July 29, 2021

McDummy

Google gave me the wrong McDonald’s. It said it was one near me but it wasn’t. It was one far away. I didn’t want to interview I called that location a few years ago and they pranked me! I could hear them laughing on the phone. I’m like
“Oh Fuck no! I’m not going here they are rude!” My dad insisted I go. Tell me that it could have changed. Then I find out the stupid automated thing set up an appointment for a non existent interview. They tell me they can’t help me but to come on Saturday. I was on the fence. I bought some food from there then left.

I got nasty food from there. I was like fuck it! I know it’s McDonald’s and you expect them to have a margin of terribleness. But it was fucking inedible. Read their online reviews they are abysmal. I’m like “I’m not gonna work here! This place is a shit show!”

My dad insisted I go to an interview to work there. I had to tell him 3 times I did not want to do it. Now I’m just gonna ghost them. Not like I take job advice from him anymore. I think he’s mad I don’t have a job which I had to quit because of that fucked up situation with the neighbors. THAT HE MADE!

All I’m pretty much interested in now is advancing in my secret hobby and earning money to buy things for it and nothing else. That is the most important.

10 Dolls from 1991 — July 27, 2021

10 Dolls from 1991

Baby All Gone

I was upset when my mom revealed the secret of how this doll ate.

Popcorn Pretties

Mattel’s version of a Cupcake doll. You could throw these down on the floor all folded up and they “popped”. These dolls are incredibly rare now.

Suzie Snapshot

The commercial had a catchy jingle.

Blooming Babies

A Strawberry Shortcake knock off doll. Pretty obscure read more about them here.

Flip n Fancy

These dolls are kind of weird.

First Surprise Magic Nursery Baby

They could have a first tooth, a first haircut or a first ice cream cone.

Sugar & Shine Cupcakes dolls

The African American dolls in this line were called Sugar & Sparkle.

Wee Lil Miss

Cabbage Patch Kids Lullaby Baby doll

Cabbage Patch Kids Crimp’n Curl dolls

I heard these are very collectable.

College Misery — July 26, 2021

College Misery

My dad got so mad when I said I was miserable at college today. He knew it. Why does he gotta dance around the issue? him and some of my other relatives were always bugging me abut college and finishing it. College sucked! I could have been advancing at my secret hobby learning cool stuff rather than wasting time taking stupid irrelevant classes like math and poli sci. When am I even going to use those in real life or my secret hobby? Never! College was one of the biggest wastes of times in my life.

I signed up for another driving school, but the earliest appointment was he 14th and my dad is mad about that. I can’t change that. He wants me to go back to that hippie guy. But I thought he was meh.

LeVar Burton was a good Jeopardy host. I was hoping he did host another non-game show before. I was hoping there would categories relevant to him. You know like joke categories something like “Butterfly in the sky”, “I can be Anything” “Sci-fi” and “Roots”.

Killer of Dreams — July 24, 2021

Killer of Dreams

You have to have a certain level of crazy to do it or else you would not want to. Or at least that is what they say.

He was ok I guess better than my last 2 professional driving teachers. But did not let me drive for the whole session. Guy was an old hippie. He says he charges by the lesson so you can buy as many as you need. It was $100 per lesson. So if you really sucked at driving and had $2000 to spend you could buy 20 classes from him. But I only wanted one for now just like a sampler. I think I’ll go to a different driving school.

After feeling satisfied with my progress I got a Happy Meal. I had wanted a Space Jam 2 Happy Meal for a while. I got one with the milk and they put Lola on the milk bottle. I got a Road Runner toy.

The Power of Tacos — July 21, 2021

The Power of Tacos

I had to go back to the driving school. I got my refund and I bought more pies. Buying pies was the best part. I found another store near there that sold a bunch of hard to find sodas. I wanted to buy more but would not be able to carry them all.

I had a job interview for Taco Bell, but when I showed up they had no idea what I was talking about and the supervisor went on break. What jerks! I don’t want to work there. How unorganized!

I had planned to go to a job interview, but the power went out. It was out for about 3 and a half hours. The heat and boredom were driving me insane and my mom was getting mad.
