Your Top 5's for the week

1) your Boy is Back (at work)[/b] - so I'm not sure how much detail I gave the board about this, but I had to leave my previous job about a month ago after a combination of issues came up (school intereference, fathers health, Hollywood typical bullshit, etc.) Burned some bridges with my leaving and went into a 2 week long panic attack about "never working in this town again". Well now its all back on track. got the call earlier this week and I begin work on a new show starting Sunday.

2) Girls, Girls Girls[/b] ...I do adore. shit goes in streaks and right now I can't complain. I'm telling you there is no better way to go to sleep than to have a beautiful girl whisper "good night" into your ear.

3) Anthony Pearson[/b] - Ain't seen dude since his recent move but during my little work stoppage AP has shined through as a true friend. I couldn't begin writing all the positive shit he's done for my down & out self over the last few weeks but its all appreciated and I'm glad to have a friend like that in my life.

4) Upcoming project that you all will be clowing me for for days years[/b] - can't talk too much on it yet. But trust me y'all will definitly get a kick out of it.

5) Reversed the Racism [/b] - I've had this film professor that has dropped little bits of anti-semitism on me all semester. (Blaming "those people" for Mel Gibson not getting a Best picture nod for The Passion, calling me in class by other Jewish last names) But somehow it's all ended not only that but she now is helping me get future jobs in Hollywood. I now have her to thank for getting me an internship at ABC which, hopefully, could springboard into something very huge.

Bonus Beat) Star Wars [/b] - went in expecting to not like it, walked out loving it. Great science fiction happy Hollywood stuff that everyone needs to enjoy once in a while.

fuck a bottom 5 its Friday...keep it upbeat!

    1. Graduation - Yesterday was a most beautiful Thursday in Philadelphia and I was proud to cross the stage with plenty of family to witness it, including both sets of Grandparents. Grad school has been the most challenging and rewarding thing I've gone through but I'm SO glad it's over.



    2. Meeting the parents - My girl met my moms for the first time the other day. She came over and hung out for pizza and to catch the Pistons game. I sat at the table with a 'happy lump' in my throat watching them go back and forth talking about anything and everything! Couldn't even get a word in besides the occasional smart remark. Really glad that went over as well as it did.



    3. J.O.B. - I'm a few days away from Human Resources processing the application for my first full-time job and am expecting an offer, likely on Monday.



    4. A.P.T. - After the severely depressing apartment tour I went on a couple days ago, I was elated to get a call back from a girl who's moving out of a DOPE crib that I've had my eye and hopes on. If all goes well, I'll be living fat city real soon.



    5. Being alive - healthy, happy and loved. Couldn't ask for much more than that.

    BONUS ???[/b]



    I had a beer with my Grandfather for the first time. We snuck off from the rest of the family at the Reading Terminal Market to the pub. I had to introduce him to Lager, since it was only his second trip to Illadelph. Felt a bit like two kings at the royal table just shooting the shit together. Apparently, he's not too fond of crabs either.

    Hey,

    Here are the "plus" fives for the week:

    1. Wifey and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary.

    2. A "tough" semester is OOOOOOOOOOOVER!!!!!

    3. I finally finished a first draft of a paper on a new research topic for me (i.e., required lots of preparatory reading).

    4. A former advisor offered me a job (which I declined because the university is in the deep South). This is flattering and a good omen for next year's job search (i.e., I hate Milwaukee).

    5. I'm continuing to drop weight (Yeeeeeeaaaaa!!!!!).

    Peace,

    Big Stacks from Kakalak

    2) Family BBQ tomorrow. Will get to see some folks I haven't seen in a minute.

    3) This will be my first weekend off from work in a few weeks & lotusland is visiting town. It'll be cool to meet dude. I see Pakoras & Nan coming...

    4) There's a good vibe @ work right now; my staff are cool & things are beginning to come together.

    5) Its sunny & warm out! Summer's coming!


    The Doo Doo

    1) There are only 24 hours in a day. It ain't enough right now.

    2) My back is bothering me. This is the weekend I finally sign up for yoga.

    3) Women.

    4) Dudes on ebay who don't know how to grade records.

    5) I gotta do laundry. I went to a meeting today in track pants...

    2 this fucking mixtape I have to turn in next week - they want hip-hop, reggaeton, bhangra and rock and mash-ups but it all has to fit the theme of prison injustice and immigration discrimination. it's a tall order.
    3 my crazy mom and her various mental illnesses/addictions. it's a lot easier to deal with when I'm a thousand miles away
    4 construction on my street and remodelling in my building means it is loud as hell all day here
    5 my friend's apartment building was condemned so she is homeless. she can sleep on our couch as long as she wants but I don't love it when her dog shits on our floor.
