Hella Good

This is going to be awesome.

Je sais que tu n'aimes pas ta réalité

It’s funny that this even came to my head, considering the fact that I’m listening to the worst music ever made, at work today, but I just got a boost of excitement about the Metric Concert next week. A trillion props to Ash for grabbing us the tix.

Not only is her voice stunning, but she has the face to boot. Her album Knives don’t have your Back, breaks my heart time and time again. It’s the perfect album to throw on, for let’s say a night in at home, (preferably your boyfriends), with candles, a drink, (preferable alcoholic), with a dash of a winter storm warning in affect ….Considering tomorrows anticipated storm, I think I’ll do just that…minus one part. Amazing still.

If you’re a fan, you must be at the sound academy on Thursday.
Post thought: I think I may have pink eye. I’ve never had it before, so I’m not entirely sure, but it would be pretty awesome if I did. When I was little, a few kids would get it at school, and get to stay home all week. Knowing my luck it’s probably just irritated because I have an eyelash stuck in it, but here’s to hoping. And this will only sound weird to the people who have already had pink eye. For the others, walking around with a wicked red crazy looking eye is where it’s at.

Monday’s sex

Laurent Barnard
from the English Punk band, the Gallows.

If you like hard core punk…that’s right I said “hardcore”, you’ll totally dig these little bears..if you haven’t already checked them out that is. Gig next Tuesday.
The song in the belly of a shark is pretty bad ass, it says fuck a lot which can be fun sometimes.

Ohhhhh I have good news for once, I can officially drive on…SATURDAY..This bloody Saturday. I’m going to drive right out of this country until I don’t want to drive anymore. And the of course I’ll turn back around because I have work on Monday.

Sleep don't pacify us until daybreak sky lights up the grid we live in

i can easily write blog on Sundays. they just may not be any good.

I’ve barely had a moment to breathe this weekend. Everything was so structured. This is actually the first down time I’ve had, & I’m in no way complaining about it, nor my busy pleasurable weekend. It’s nice to be sleeping in my own personal bed tonight. Don’t get me wrong, I adore waking up to my friends’ pretty faces, but this is also nice too.
I went to a concert last night and was blown away by the amount of beautiful people in attendance. I mean it was the most attractive group of people I’ve even seen in one building ever. Both sexes, it was bizarre in a fine way. I also ran into the beautiful Claudia and Melissa which makes sense. All in all, a good night, but a late night, again because of my situation.

By the time I was in my bed it was close to 4:00 a.m. I obviously, as soon as my head hit the pillow fell fast asleep. I felt like I was dreaming all night when I woke up this morning. It happened to be the kind of dream that you weren’t entirely sure if it was real or not. I guess I was still pretty incoherent just waking up and all, but it felt soo real. I was almost disappointed when I came to terms that I was just dreaming. I guess I wanted so badly for it to be my reality. Ahh, dreams, they sure can getcha.

So now I’m tired, but as per usual can’t fall asleep. I was planning on going to see the
Teenagers tonight, but I just couldn’t bring myself to go. I mean I really don’t feel like pretending that annoying lil scenesters don’t bother me tonight. I know there will be a plethora of the shits, and I’m in the mood where they will, (and I may even) make me want to kick them. So I’ve made the executive decision to put myself to bed instead. All in all, a good decision.

I can’t even begin to tell you how tired I’m today. I ‘m a walking useless zombie, and my eyes feel like they are burning through my head. It sure doesn’t help that this morning I got eyeliner in my eye, and there is a thin layer of makeup blurring my already good for the garbage vision. Most ironic part is I got tons of sleep last night. Well wait, It could have something to do with the fact that I was bored out my tree, and I spent too long (let’s just say that), on this website called Cute Overload. I know…I’m two steps away from turning into one of those weird cat ladies.

So today’s I’ve decided to lighten things up a bit, because of the recent tragic event. Actually a whole lot. Almost child like lighting up. Like if I was a kid, this is how I would cheer peeps up. I was originally going to post pictures of really cute puppies, but I thought to myself, “how non-original of you Jessica”, so instead…..
are you kidding me?
he's an old man. I'd want this one.

I grew up with and herbet...RIP.
If you don’t want to squeeze these little guys to death (in a loving way) something is seriously wrong with you, and we shouldn’t continue to be friends, because it would just be a lie.

May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.

I’m speechless. Really.
Too young, so talented, too soon.
I didn’t know him personally, but for some reason this just doesn’t sit right.

This is a trend that should be broken. Life really is precious, and we often, including myself, take advantage of our existence. I hate when I get like this, but it’s so true it hurts. It really makes me rethink a few things, and I’m sure a few others around me.
"You’re forced into, kind of, respecting yourself more. You learn more about yourself through your child, I guess. I think you also look at death differently. It’s like a Catch-22: I feel good about dying now because I feel like I’m alive in her, you know, but at the same hand, you don’t want to die because you want to be around for the rest of her life."

What a lame-o post

I’m eating an apple, and it’s gritty and it sucks. When I try to improve my eating habits why must every piece of fruit I pick up be so shitty? Last night I went to Sporting life with a friend to buy him a winter jacket…I wondered off and decided I wanted to go tanning because I’m gross looking. So I did just that. We’ll it cost me 19 bucks. WTF and of course I did it. I do sort of look like Whitney Houston today so it was worth it, but still. Then we went to Wal-Mart to buy cases of water, and I bought 9 dollar pajamas with tacky peace signs all over em. So exciting.

So today’s sort of a weird one. I woke up, looked out the window and saw nothing but white. Ugh, I can’t even tell you how bad I would’ve liked to jump right back into the sack. But I couldn’t because I still am employed until the 15th! I thankfully have a few things in February to look forward too. One being my license being reinstated in ummm, 13 days to be exact, and then on the 17th, I leave for the dirty south for eleven days with my Elise. Should be good times all around. I’m probably just got to plot my ass in the sand and absorb all the vitamin d that I have lost thus far. It should take a while. (I’m coming for you next janet, scouts honor)

Ahhh but most important I have to do the whole “find yourself a job you like” search. Yuk. I always get a weird feeling when I have to make moves like this…Plusssss the stress of moving back downtown. Job first. Yikes.

All that aside tonight is the Editors concert so I’m pretty happy to get outta the house and listen to some good music, while being in the company of my favorites. I have most of em there tonight.
Fun times please.
(I don't know, the Editors...blah)
People are fragile things, you should know by now, be careful what you put them through

Just try to comprehend that which you'll never comprehend

Really I should be sleeping right now, but because of my wild unexpected night yesterday, I dedicated today to sleeping and having really weird ass nightmares, so now I can’t fall asleep.

Ok so I’m surprised at myself for not posting about this sooner.

It all started back when I was maybe 15/16, grade 9 to be exact, and I heard my first Garbage song. No wait I may have even still been in elementary school. Gosh I was ahead of the times.

In that era, jessica was the kid wearing dr. Martins, with bright pink hair, and thought she was such a bad ass at her Catholic Academy high school in Woodbridge. (I’ll post a funny picture of the pink hair later, it’s good material I assure you.)

I could go on and on but I’ll say this….Admittedly Is still love Garbage as much as I did when I was a little punket. This band will forever be a favourite of mine no matter how cliché it is. I adore Shirley Manson and what she has to sing about. She’s pretty darn close to perfect in my books. For tonight at least.

Hells one of my tattoos is a verse from one of her songs. I won’t tell you which one of course.

I’m totally 90’s tonight.

This bitch is throwing my next party

Retarded, yet hilarious.
I’m going to bed.

She likes disco and tastes like a tear

Today is a very slow day, so I’m definitely slacking here at the employment, and on top of it all,
I have nothing interesting to say about anything.

So I’ll post a hot chick of the day, or whatever I used to call it back in the 2007 archives.

I don’t know who she is, but the photographer goes by the name hellwoman. She takes stunning portraits of some really beautiful people.

i can spell what you can't say

Last night I said goodbye to yet another good friend of mine. This one I lost to Australia. Oh and Sunday I lost Janet to a big lonely apple, or the city I know and love, New York….for the second time. If one more of my friends move away from me, I swear I’m outta here too. I’ll go to..I don’t know, Christmas Island. I swear people stay put!

Since I still don’t have a license, I’m forced to spend my lunch hour in my building’s cafeteria. One word, GROSS. I honestly have no idea what they are thinking when they decide what to make for the day. On the days when I don’t bring a lunch, I’m forced to eat a bland egg salad sandwich. So today I’m rebelling and writing this while I sit at a table that seats 8 people. I don’t even care who looks at me, and thinks “whata little twit”.

So as I sit here at my lonely table for 8 I gaze to my left only to see a hideous painting on the wall above me. Its beige, and the actually image is a faded blueish colour. It’s called “William Buffett”. Or wait, that could be the artists name, (if you would even call him that), it’s hard to tell. Anyways it’s ugly and has dried food stuck on it. Don’t you ever wonder how the food gets up there, so high? As far as I’m concerned, I think that should be the 8th wonder of the world.

My only compliant other than the ugg picture, is that I still don’t have internet connection at home. I spoke to Bell Sympatico and they said it would be up and running by Wednesday, because they are installing new equipment. Excuse me? Do you think that you are a little fly by night company that can just do that to me? I mean I have questions. I have them all the time, more and more pop into my head as the hours pass. If I don’t have access to the google engine how am I suppose to find my answers? I’ll admit taking the internet away from me is a cruel cruel action, than can permanently do some serious damage. Like last night for example, I really wanted to read up on (jog my memory), the richter scale, but I couldn’t do so because I was rejected. So today I’m that much stupider. A complaint letter is in the making. Word of the day please: Stupider.

p.s has anyone seen the new Pepto Bismol auditions commercial? Hilarious, I wish that was my mother.
I leave you with this.
They are rude, crude, with lyrics like…

“She’s a cheerleader, she’s a virgin, and she’s really tanAs she stepped out of her massive carI could only notice she was more than fuckable”

or just really rad ones like this….
“I came face to face with my step-cousin or whatever, who cares?Anyway, he was wearing skinny jeans, had funky hairAnd the cutest British accent everStraight away, I could tell he was rockerFrom his sexy attitude and the way he looked at meMmmmmm, he is totally awesome”

That’s right, THE TEENAGERS are coming to the Social on January 27, 2008. I’ll be in attendance for that one fur-sure.

I love girls, they’re such assholes.

Give a hipster a chance…ok don’t, but give these ones one.

Human Tetris II

Thanks Laura. Nothing can make me happier than this.

it's the way you talk in twos, and it's whatever I fell through.

Yesterday was a sour day.
I had my second court date, and needless to say it did not go very well. The Crown we had was inexperienced, and did not read over the disclosure before she started, which made things extremely shit for my end. Without getting into it deeply, the officer said in his notes that he submitted to court that I said and I quote “there is no way I’m talking that test”. I think what upsets me the most is how people can be so vindictive and have no shame about their ruthless actions. Why on earth would he blatantly lie like that? I just don’t understand people’s motives. He is ruining an innocent person’s life, and he has no shame in doing so. Situations, and people like this really give me little faith in the world. I’m soo sick of sounding bitter, but common. I still get my license back in a few weeks, but I still can’t seem to be satisfied with just that.
Screw that I’m going to the beach with my best dude friends ever.
I’m going to try to happier today. This weekend is going to be a busy one, and one I rather look forward to. I’ll be in the city till Sunday it looks like.

I have nothing to leave you with expect some advice. When I’m down in the dumps, I put on happy music, and happy music to me is Tom Vek. Now I just lied, I’m such a dirty little liar. I listen to Tom Vek when I'm bright and shiny. I don’t even know what I’m saying, so just figure him out for yourself. Lovesss.

Some Poetry-cause i'm deep like that

I want a lover I don't have to love
I want a boy who's so drunk he doesn't talk
Where's the kid with the chemicals?
I've got a hunger and I can't seem to get full
I need some meaning I can memorize
The kind I have always seems to slip my mind

Know the song?
Personally I want the same things…..minus the drug part.
Hint: Bettie Serveert did a cover of the song. Indisputably the original is the hottest ever.
Download both though.

Fill these spaces up with days

I had a hard time finding a picture for this band, because most/all of them look like they can be used for a Lilith Fair add. Yikes. Thanks but no thanks. Seriously google image search their ass. They’re not a new band or anything, I just have plenty of free time at work today, and want to share my bounty. (Lisa & Laura, you will like them). They are totally the girls you would see riding their bikes around Kensington Market.

Anyways this one is for the chicks, and maybe some of my dude friends, depending. I’m going to go ahead and suggest giving them a download to see for yourself. It’s excellent breakup music. If you enjoy MAZZY STAR,(xoxoxo) this will tweak your interest too.

Don’t make a sound
If you fall

You remind me of the babe, What babe? babe with the power, What power? power of voodoo

Is it weird that I wish I had two different colored eyes? Kinda like Bowie’s, or kate's or kitty's here. How crazy does his look? I would like that for myself. I wish there was such thing as eye transplants, that only I knew about it. I would choose one violet, and one blue with a speck of red, but only in one…the violet one. Hot.

I’m quitting my job in less than 4 hours!!!!!! My heart is pounding, but I’m a bull so I can do this..??..right??

Jessica’s Suggestions

Be in the know. No?

Vampire Weekend
Black Lips

Sea Wolf

My fav: Winter Windows


My fav: Don’t you Evah, I turn my Camera on
xxxxx-You can also try a band called, Rogue Wave, the song Lake Michigan-xxxxx


I just realized in less than a month I will somewhat have a little part of my life back. My driver’s licence. That will be one piece to my so called puzzle of life. Stoked a bit.

I just got home from Elise’s cottage, and I must say that it’s becoming one of my favourite places to be. She has even suggested that I keep my board up there, since I most likely will only be boarding with her. Um yey. I certainly cannot argue with that, it just wouldn’t be right. We spent most of the weekend watching most of seasons one and two of arrested development, and I can’t even tell you how brilliant that show is. What a gem. I can’t believe they got rid of it. Jessica Walter is hilarious!

Now looking back on today, I’ve decided that my snowboarding abilities are not up to par with what I know I’m capable of. So Elise has suggested that I ask her brother to come with us next time and give me an extensive lesson, since he’s a wicked boarder. Instead of paying him, she recommended that I just buy him and ounce of weed. Deal. Lessons for drugs, more than fair enough.

On an entirely different note, most of you know how much I loathe the lawyer I work for. We constantly butt heads, and after two long years, I’ve decided that the best thing to do for myself is leave his ass. I’ve decided to quit either late next week, or early the following week. I’ll give him a months notice, because I’m pretty awesome like that, and I know how desperate he will be. Nothing makes me happier. I detest quitting jobs. I get so red, and hot, and awkward. I need to read my lines off cue cards or something. Anyways I think I need some time to figure things out, before I jump back into something. Before anything I need a vacation, and preferably as soon as possible. Something super cheap, like a thousand bucks. All I require is a clean beach, clear water, and a colourful umbrella in my drink. Problem is no one wants to come. (Janet I’m still hopeful for you) waiting….

Its 10:00, and I’m already in bed. As I swallow i feel my throat try to tell me something. Something along the lines of “your going to be sick soon, and I’m going to hurt you”. Yes something is definitely brewing, and I’ve been so carefully, being antisocial and all, so this in fact would not happen to me.

Elise’s bros decided to put dog food in her snowboarding boot a while back when they must have been upset with her. We discovered it today. A reason why I wish I had a brother.
Never play a game with me. I cheat. In this case taking more letters, and looking at them first. I’m sorry if you read this “hermano”.

This is what I got to hang out with today. “Tripper”

I wish I had a cure for the way people are

A very serious situation occurred the day before a few friends and mine were going to take off to Montreal this weekend. Considering the circumstances, it was decided that we stay back, and with valid reason. Basically that meant that NYE 2008 was a crock of nothing but shit. I can’t say that the whole weekend was bad though. Friday we went frolicking around the city to various places, and Saturday I ended up at Sneaky Dee’s, painting my nails and drinking cheap, but surprisingly wicked tasting wine. Who woulda thunk?

New Years Eve started off pretty rad. We crashed Janet’s brother’s party, and drank as much as we could consume before we left, because we knew that getting a drink at the bar would be next to impossible when we got there, and most importantly we agreed that getting through our night would be a lot easier if we were slightly in the bag. Then we danced around to New Order pretending that we were living in the 80’s. Inevitably we had to leave to go to the bar. The “wrong bar” that is. Ha, pun intended. As soon as we all arrived there, we were instantly sober. I mean all our hard work went to shit, out of nowhere. Needless to stay we had to play catch up to all the others around us. To make a longgg story short, as soon as the clock rung 12, everyone pretty much bailed. I was also ready to skedaddle, but Janet lost her purse. We must have looked under every jacket in that bar, and nuttin. Before we knew it we were standing on the street in the blowing snow, freezing and confused. Obviously we were over the night. Soooo over it. We decided to pack it in, and go our separate ways.

IT was close to impossible to find a cab in the city last night, which made things even more fun for me. Instead of standing on the street with fifty other people trying to hail a cab, I decided to walk back to Laura’s. She had the right idea and bailed early. Some nights just can’t be turned around y’know? Or maybe were so over it to even try any longer.

BY the time I arrived at Laura’s condo I was soaked head to toe. My hair was dripping and my eye makeup was streaming down my face. Needless to stay I was enraged. But the remainder of the night was a pleasure. Snuggling (defrosting) on the coach with Laura and tom, watching Austin Powers and eating pizza that made us usual. A special thanks to Laura for providing me with warm clothes, food, and shelter. Ahh and that was that. I have come to the conclusion that I’m just not cut out for nights like that anymore. 2009, is going to be mighty different I tell ya. I’ll either be in Australia visiting my mike, or at home with a bottle of wine, and a good movie. I hope everyone else had an amazing one.

The end. Thank goodness.
Here's to 2008!!!!!
Thanks to everyone who made 2007 a little easier for me!
