Why do they think I am Indian or Asian? LOL. I tried it with 4 different pictures and I keep coming up the same … very strange! =)

Here is attempt 4 (even with my worst washed out photo I still am asian!)

I guess my Polish powers are wearing off? … caluski 😉

More attempts …

Apparently I look like Angelina Jolie in this one! (That’s hot)

 

Me and myself July 29, 2007

Filed under: Personal,Strange Observations — pixystixy @ 11:55 am

One thing that I have realized about myself is the fact that I am very different from almost everyone else I know.  I feel like I am not as needy or as demanding as most people and I sometimes think to myself that everything is kind of out of control in the world around me and I can’t help but feel hopeless in just watching everything crumble around me.

I am very much a control freak.  I have a lot of theories in my head about how things have to be done in order to be considered finished correctly.  There is always an order, and a system and everything always falls into place.  Yes, if something doesn’t work it drives me insane and I become useless trying to figure out why it did not work.  I seriously am crazy like that, but at least no one else gets involved in my temporary insanity.  I do pretty well on my own because I am very independent and it is one of my pet peeves when people try to get involved in helping me out.

I think I need to refocus myself on getting out of these habits again.  I need to feel like it is all right to just leave things alone.  Even if it will make me go crazy and I will feel like I am contributing to the world’s chaos I think I have to.  At least then I will be a part of something bigger than myself?

 

What a week.

Since I made a bad choice tonight and got all hopped up on frigging caffeine I am at the beginning of what seems to be a long, downward spiral towards a sleepless and restless night. I was thinking about a lot of events that happened to me this week. I am not a drama queen by any means. I hate dramatics. If I wanted entertainment I would watch TV.

For instance, on Thursday night, someone called me and told me that there was a strong possibility that they were going to jail, and if they did end up there, I was going to be their one phone call and it was imperative that I answer my cell phone at that time. Now, most people would probably want to know details about this. I really didn’t care. I just wanted to be left alone. I don’t want that kind of responsibility! Seriously, that sucks when people go to jail but I don’t want to be known as the girl who blew everything because I missed a phone call. I always miss phone calls. I am the first to admit that I am flaky and unreliable when it comes to answering my cell phone. Apparently this person has not been thrown in jail, or they had called someone else knowing that I would probably forget my cell phone in my car for hours on end. I don’t know.

One good thing did happen this week, however. I did get to see The Simpsons Movie on Friday and it was brilliant. The last few seasons of the TV show haven’t been very good in my opinion but the movie definitely was fun. I recommend seeing that before seeing I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. Chuck and Larry was definitely a let down for me but that’s another story I suppose.

Anyway … that is my random, tired yet over caffeinated babble. Enjoy.

Note to Self: Set more unobtainable goals … July 19, 2007

Filed under: Lists — pixystixy @ 6:36 pm

Here are some goals I want to reach by the end of the year:

1)  Lose ten pounds – not sure why, it just seems like a good idea

2)  Keep contributing to my savings account so one day I can buy a house

3)  Stay the way I am right now:  Upbeat, Charming and Amazing

I will have to keep reminding myself of these goals … I really want to do something special for myself next year.  I think I can make it out of my small rut I got myself into.  I feel good about life.  🙂

 

The Two Things I’ve Learned this Weekend July 15, 2007

Filed under: Humor,Movies — pixystixy @ 9:30 am

I have had a very productive weekend and I have learned quite a few things, but only two of them really matter so I wanted to share them with the world.

IMPORTANT THING I LEARNED (#1)

If someone is going to go out on an all night binge drinking spree, it is good to have a plan when you come home. Since I didn’t feel drunk until I laid down in bed and attempted using the computer (and I am still convinced that it was the brightness of the screen in the darkness of the room that made me sick) one should have a garbage receptical nearby just in case one has to get sick in a hurry.

IMPORTANT THING I LEARNED (#2)

The newest Harry Potter movie (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) was exactly how I imagined it would be. This made me slightly irritated. Definitely see Transformers before you see this movie … Transformers was way better, and I consider myself a Harry Potter fan for the most part.

Oh well, just keep it all in mind that even long, drunken weekends can be learning experiences and I am glad I could get all of that out there.

 

Happy 4th of July July 4, 2007

Filed under: Arizona,Humor,Tucson — pixystixy @ 2:39 am

I love America, thank you for the random day off in the middle of the week and thank you for making me an accessory to a crime for smuggling illegal contraband into Arizona and thank you for the lovely hotdogs.

God bless America and the exciting week it has already brought to me.

Now let us celebrate by blowing up said illegal contraband and quite possibly starting a brushfire or losing a limb.

…that was a joke… no one will blow anything up until MUCH later today.

 

In-N-Out Burger is like mana from heaven July 2, 2007

Filed under: Arizona,Humor,Strange Observations,The "Feeler" theory,Tucson — pixystixy @ 2:24 pm

The best thing about living in Tucson now is that we have a brand new In-N-Out Burger finally.  Every day I go to work, I imagine that lovely red and yellow sign just a block away.  After eating my wonderful burger and fries I feel like a new person.  I feel like I can rebuild homes for the homeless and douse burning wildfires single-handedly.  I think I can find the cure for cancer.

The wonderful thing about this new found emotion of sheer, powerful motivation is that I look at my pile of work after I finish this glorious meal and I immediately abandon all hope that this emotion will stick around.  If I didn’t feel discouraged after that then my feeler theory wouldn’t hold up.  Although the delicious morsels that is In-N-Out burger does mess with my mind, I still love it.

Yes, I do love In-N-Out burger.  And yes, I would marry it … if it was legal to do that sort of thing in Arizona.

 

Damn the “MySpace” and its evil tyranny! June 27, 2007

Filed under: Humor,Newest Entries,The MySpace Disease — pixystixy @ 12:46 am

Yes. I logged into the MySpace again today. #$%&!

I still hold firm that this disgustingly, guilty pleasure has been sucking the very last strands of reality that my generation has been holding onto. I seriously just need to turn off those awful email notifications that taunt me into logging in. The always tempt me by proclaiming that “<3 Jamie <3” wants to be my friend or “DaViD” has sent me a message.

If curiosity really did kill the cat, then thank God (or gods if you prefer or thank your mom if you’re not religious) because I would have been killed next if I didn’t attempt so much to withhold from signing into the devious web page.

I think Tom was onto something. The MySpace is like cocaine for the internet. Oh, what would we do if they ever started charging to use that stupid page? … I know what I would do … buy stock. Lots and lots of stock. I am on to you, MySpace people … you may be crafty but I am craftier. 🙂

 

The Disinformation of “family jewels” from the CIA June 26, 2007

Filed under: News,Uncategorized — pixystixy @ 5:51 pm

A glimpse into the CIA’s ‘family jewels’

The Associated Press

Published: June 26, 2007

 

WASHINGTON: The Central Intelligence Agency released hundreds of pages of internal reports Tuesday detailing assassination plots against foreign leaders like Fidel Castro and the secret testing of mind-and-behavior altering drugs like LSD on unwitting U.S. citizens.

The documents also provided information on tapping journalists’ phones, spying on demonstrators who supported civil rights or opposed the Vietnam War, opening private mail between the United States and the Soviet Union or China, and breaking into the homes of former CIA employees and others.

Inside the Central Intelligence Agency, the documents were referred to as the “skeletons.” But another name quickly caught on and stuck: “Family jewels.”

The 693 pages, mostly drawn from the memories of active CIA officers in 1973, were turned over at that time to three different investigative panels: President Gerald Ford’s Rockefeller Commission, the Senate’s Church Committee and the House’s Pike Committee.

The panels spent years investigating and amplifying on these documents. And their public reports in the mid-1970s filled tens of thousands of pages. The scandal sullied the reputation of the intelligence community and led to new rules for the CIA, the FBI and other spy agencies and new permanent committees in Congress to oversee them.

Among the more famous misdeeds was the Castro plot in 1960. In August that year, the CIA recruited a former FBI agent, Robert Maheu, to approach a Chicago mobster, John Roselli, and pass himself off as the representative of international corporations who wanted Castro killed. Roselli introduced Maheu to “Sam Gold” and “Joe,” who were actually Sam Giancana, Al Capone’s successor in Chicago, and Santo Trafficante Jr., the mob boss in Florida.

The CIA gave them six poison pills, and they tried unsuccessfully for several months to have several people put them in the Cuban leader’s food.

This particular plot was dropped after the failed CIA-sponsored invasion of Cuba at the Bay of Pigs, but other plots continued against Castro. Details of this plot first appeared in Jack Anderson’s newspaper column in 1971.

Last week, the director of Central Intelligence, Michael Hayden, told a conference of historians that “the documents provide a glimpse of a very different time and a very different agency.”

A CIA spokesman, George Little, said Hayden has been declassifying historic documents as a way of demonstrating the CIA’s accountability. “The collection was reviewed exhaustively by the Rockefeller Commission and congressional committees in the 1970s,” he said. “Moreover, many of the documents have been released to the public on prior occasions.”

These documents were also one of the products of the Watergate scandal that led to President Richard Nixon’s resignation.

The CIA director under Nixon, James Schlesinger, was angered to read in the newspapers that the CIA had provided support to the former CIA agents E. Howard Hunt and James McCord, who were convicted in the Watergate break-in.

Hunt had worked for a secret “plumbers’ unit” in Nixon’s White House. The unit, originally set up to investigate and end leaks of classified information, ultimately engaged in a wide range of misconduct.

In May 1973, Schlesinger ordered “all senior operating officials of this agency to report to me immediately on any activities now going on, or that have gone on the past, which might be construed to be outside the legislative charter of this agency.” The law establishing the CIA barred it from conducting spying inside the United States.

The result was the 693 pages of memos that arrived after Schlesinger had moved to the Pentagon and been replaced as CIA chief by William Colby. Colby ultimately reported the contents to the Justice Department.

“These are the top CIA officers all going into the confessional and saying, ‘Forgive me, father, for I have sinned,’ ” said Thomas Blanton, director of the private National Security Archive, which had requested release of the documents under the Freedom of Information Act.
