After These Messages, We’ll Be Right Back

I know a number of you are eagerly awaiting the next installment in the 2008 saga. Thanks to everyone for your support and encouragement; I appreciate it very, very much. I am doing okay these days and I’m trying to stay positive and focused. Stay tuned and the rest of the story will be up soon.

To entertain you while you’re waiting, check out this video from Improv Everywhere. They are a NYC-based group that stages fascinating, fun events designed to get attention. Recently they did a “freeze frame” in Grand Central Station.

Now all I want to know is, who’s up for a Long Beach branch of this group? Anyone?

Baby vs. Pomeranian

I found this video, “Ready-Set-Bumbo”, today on Yahoo. Very, very funny stuff.

And for the record, Bumbo is the brand name of the baby’s chair. I will post Part II next.

Quiz Fun

I always enjoy taking little personality quizzes, whether in magazines or online. While frequently I alter my answers in order to get a more favorable outcome, I’m trying harder to answer more honestly. My friend Violet posted some of these quizzes on her blog, so here’s a few that I took, along with my typical smart-ass responses.

On Whether Moxie Has Been Assimilated into the Southern California Borg:

You’re fairly Californian. Unless you’re really from California, you should be stoked!
You Are 44% California

I’m glad this wasn’t over 50%, because I am soooo over this L.A. thing. Been here since 2000, so I guess this is my 7-year itch. And I hate being itchy.

On Whether or Not Moxie is Primed for World Domination:

You Are Not Destined to Rule the World

You are destined for something else…
Like inventing a new type of cupcake.
You just don’t have the stomach for brutality.
But watch out – because many people do!

Yeah, right. More like y’all ain’t ready for me. Everyone knows that I am supposed to rule the world. Except maybe Karl Rove. And Jesus. Oh, and Scooter Libby.

On How Much Moxie Knows about 80s Music:

You Scored 65% Correct

You are a solid child of the 80s
You’d never confuse Tiffany from Debbie
And while you may not know Prince’s first #1 hit
You know every word to Little Red Corvette

Only 65% correct? Man, I am slipping in my old age.

On What City Moxie Would Be:

You Are New York

Cosmopolitan and sophisticated, you enjoy the newest in food, art, and culture.
You also appreciate a good amount of grit – and very little shocks you.
You’re competitive, driven, and very likely to succeed.

Famous people from New York: Sarah Michelle Gellar, Tupac Shakur, Woody Allen

I love New York, so this makes perfect sense. Didya hear that Xanadu the Musical is opening on Broadway next month? I am so there!

On Moxie’s Pop Princess Alterego:

Your Inner Pop Princess Is Shakira

“Baby I would climb the Andes solely
To count the freckles on your body
Never could imagine there were only
Too many ways to love somebody”

You’re more a poet than a pop star.

Oh, lord. Well, my hips really don’t lie, and neither does my ass. My left pinky toe, though, he’s a shady little bastard.
