Short Attention Span Theatre

This one is for Kate.

So today, I came across a web-based drama called Prom Queen. Produced by Michael Eisner's new company (yes, that Michael Eisner), this is the first funded piece of daily episodic online video that actually does what other online soaps try to do - bring the teen drama to the web. Okay, so the teen drama is already there, but in moving, fictional, picture form.

What's more interesting is the non-video aspects of the project - forums, contests, a MySpace page, sponsorship by a big-name, forthcoming movie release, episode tagging, direct access to all past episodes, and the ability for sadsack bloggers like me to embed them in their own pages. Like the collection of the first week that you see below.

Too bad the story is kind of sucky.

Did I Wear Too Many Monkeys Today?

Outfit, head to toe.

Around neck:

This dress, hemmed to the knee:

Art Makes My Heart Go Pitter-Pat

I'm adding to my contemporary art crush harem. The current line-up:

And the new kid...Emily Martin.

It's been killing me to not talk about her dreamy prints, but I had to wait, you see, as I was sending a print of her piece Heidi, to a friend as a birthday gift.

So here're a few samples of her work. Love. LOVE.

I Mark Time in Haircuts

In almost a whole haircut from now, I will be in Manhattan, shopping and eating and spending time with lovely people. Without a conference to attend to take away from my time striding around the city.

I feel like this is going to be the summer of traveling for fun. That means I'm watching you, Chicago and Vancouver. And I'm coming to get you.

Not like that paragraph wasn't creepy or anything.

In randomness, as if I need proof of my shortness, I bought a pair of cropped pants this weekend. And had to shorten them by two inches so that they'd actually look cropped on me, like they're supposed to.

I sometimes forget about the actual fact of my size. Apparently, I do need proof of my shortness.

The end.

I Am At Fault

I need to stop talking about clever network TV shows, as they tend to get cancelled. Case in point: Andy Barker, PI.

The last two episodes air tonight.

Sick Room or Office Space?

Current illness count on my team at work: 7/9. Those two non-ill people? Amoungst them, me.

In order to bring up the energy in the room, I have fallen back into the role of manically energetic fool. Today, when I came to the conclusion that it's more then possible to do an impression of a database. Especially when you imbue that database with the personality of Frankenstein. And I just couldn't hold back.


The things I do for these people.

Because I Want To Have A Good Day

I will think good thoughts, and not post all of the ranting complaints that are in my head.

Instead, I will show you this, from Darling Shoppe:

I feel like there should be more leaping high-fives. And, perhaps, cricket impressions.

But that's just between you and me.

Menagerie, Around My Neck

My latest animal-based jewellery acquisition arrived today. Since no one else seems to be on board with buying me a pony, I up and got one for myself. And then I thought I might as well confess my animal necklace collection crime. Via photographs.

Random Facts and a Rumour - Me In The Office

I have been known to do The Robot in the middle of the office. I did not need an instructional video to learn how to pop and lock.

I have been known to do a gorilla impression in the middle of the office.

Rumour: An impression of a gorilla doing the robot is in the works. This, I can neither confirm or deny.

Thank God For Extended Warranties

Because my car is having more wiper mechanism problems. And the part will take 3 - 5 days to come in. And my warranty? It covers car rental.

So I'm in a rental car for the next wee bit. It's like being on a holiday in a strange city. Except without the holiday. And the strange city.

I don't know what else to say - I've been running about like a mad woman with the car and the dealership and the rental place. Hence, the incoherance. I'll be more amusing tomorrow. Promise.

PS: It's NOT a PT Cruiser.
