my journal is now friends only...

i have no beef with e-stalkers (and frankly find it flattering), so please comment here if you'd like me to add you- but if you don't plan on ever reading what i have to say, then i really don't want you to be able to. this journal is my outlet, please respect that.

here are some poorly cropped stills from our rejected superbowl commercial (kiss my ass, i'm at work and using ms paint).

you can view the whole thing here.




the ad that wasn't rejected will be seen twice (yes, 4.8 million clams later). Once in the first quarter and once at the two minute warning in the fourth quarter. big things are in store.... and i have a feeling that bob parsons is going to get considerably richer.

i'm beginning to think the entire resource management team for the greater phoenix area needs a swift kick in the ass.

i really find it funny that the city of phoenix has demoted it's Water Services Manager Mike Gritzuk for issuing the boil water order, causing undue panic and mistrust in the SRP water quality. that looks to me like a desperate act of last minute blame shifting, trying to satisfy the public's need to point a finger at someone. what a joke.

ever so shortly after dealing with this water crisis, there are a few thousand people now without natural gas (ie heat, hot water, cooking ability). of course, the city is placing blame (perhaps correctly) on southwest gas, and i've heard a report of them filing a suit for negligence. le sigh.

this city's governing bodies are losing my respect rather quickly. it seems that they're quick to point blame and such after the fact, yet what are they doing to be proactive? what steps are they taking to ensure things of this nature don't happen in the future? none that i've seen. if they are, perhaps that's what they should publicize rather than the demotion of management on staff at the time of a crisis.

so the city of phoenix is in the throws of a water contamination problem. they're making a pretty big deal about it too. all i've been hearing since sunday is BOIL YOUR WATER OMGWTFBBQ!!!!1 they're saying it's "sediment" in the water from a storm which i think is c-r-a-p crap. speaking of crap, that's probably whats in the water. as if they'd tell you to boil all water for 5 minutes if it was just some dirt. it's poo!!!! we're drinking and bathing in sewer water! ew.

last night was entertaining to say the least. it was the bradshaw family christmas party (ben's mom's side of the family). his mom, debbie, was in charge of the nights festivities and put on quite the wholesome family event. all went on without a hitch aside from when she announced to the entire party that ben and i were among freshly engaged. i was wondering at first if she knew something i didn't... but then thought perhaps it's her not-so-subtle way of dropping hints that she'd prefer we didn't live in sin. i turned about seven shades of red, but got a giggle out of the whole thing.

after that on the way home, ben asked that we make an unexpected detour to tempe town lake and i gladly obliged. we walked through the park holding hands, admiring the christmas lights strung through the trees, just each enjoying the company of the other. i looked at him, and found myself smiling the way i did when we first met, giddy at the fact that i found someone that means so much to me. he's got my heart in his pocket (sometimes i wonder if he really knows that or not). the lake was beautiful, the lights on the bridge relfected down like a mirror and the stars were out in full force. the air was chilly but not too cold. holding him close kept me as warm as i needed. evenings like this remind me why it's so incredible to be in love.

another weekend leaves me in the throws of monday, already a foot in the door. it went by too quickly as i spent the better part of the weekend in tucson. the drive wasn't as long as i had anticipated, and a little more plain than i had imagined. other than an ostrich farm, the terrain wasn't any different than my morning drive to work. tucson had a small town feel which i hadn't really felt since driving through the farmlands of petaluma. things weren't as fast there, there were no overpasses and there were pine trees dotting the medians. the elevation is higher and i suppose that's a little more like i had imagined northern arizona, rather than southern. there were similarities, signs in spanish, the same golden-orange, pink and purple sunset across the horizon and the warm evening air that doesn't shock your senses. it has the same delicate appeal that i've come to know in my new home. tucson, amid it's slower pace, also wasn't trying to kid anyone about where it was. it was in the desert and it boasted that fact with rocky orange landscapes with cactus gardens instead of the green lawns and flowerbeds. tucson was different than scottsdale- it wasn't trying desperately to be california.
