uh-oh spaghetti-o's. haven't visited here since i started my new career in the world of 'data entry' (we in the industry call it DE) and it seems like while i've been away the shit has hit the fan. er... so is Emo really that bad? (or, Mars, are you suffering from serious diet-coke withdrawals?) he deserves at least another perspective. like. he's not THAT bad. so here is...

my case for Emo


  1. last week i only saw him TWICE (last housemate of mine LIVED on couch and drove me crazy with his eternal 'BEINGNESS of around me' all the time)

  2. one of the times i saw Emo he was dancing around in the kitchen cooking his two minute noodles while wearing an orange wig. cute, heh?
  3. he somehow manages to be sincere and shallow at the same time. like he's big on not being materialistic, however he hasn't quite worked out that by not owning anything he has to then take from everyone else (ie food, our house). but he's only first year philosophy, so i reckon but the time he gets to second year he'll have worked out the flaws in his zen.

  4. he says i have a cool cd collection (it's easier to admire when it's alphabetical)

  5. he is easy to talk to and doesn't seem judgemental at all

  6. he is very young and from the country

  7. what he does in his room (and in his bottles) is up to him, and as far as the rest of the house goes his presence isn't felt that much (Mars, i know you disagree here but he doesn't smell that bad and i told him to only use my plates and cutlery)


this is not permanent. he is just staying here until he finds somewhere else, and i WILL get on his case eventually. when you are overseas Mars it will be uni holidays so i'll encourage him to leave then (that's if he doesn't leave earlier... he might actually hate it here. we do have a website that currently focuses on bitching about him a lot and i'm sure his badly tuned zen must be picking up some of this around that house.)

so that’s my case. Emo’s okay. and i’ve got a quota of 2500 pieces of data per week to be thinking about…

Emo sounds like a new-age hippie

is emo the new hippy???

i like emo. i'd probably give him a hug, lounge about all day giggling constantly and then spoon him at night

Adam said...

Whoa! You must certainly love data! I think you want to marry data!!

Mars said...

Kiki, you TRAITOR. We are no longer friends. Go hug Emo you fucking... Emo LOVER.

Dot loves Emo. And data.

kiki said...

Mars, you are still foremost in my (innarweb) thoughts. Emo is just a passing faze that everybody seems to be jumping on...

give it a few months, i hate to say it but maybe even years, and Emo's will be a thing of the past...

enjoy the pasty skin and skinny frame while they are still in fashion i say

so where you going on your trip? and for how long? - i know this cool chick in NYC if you need accom.

Mars said...

Emo is coming between me and everyone! First me and Dot, and now me and Kiki.. HE'S EVIL i tells ya..

Keith, leaving on the 27th yo.. pretty sorted for accomodation (thanks for the offer of [presumably] petra's couch though!) Will only be away for 4 weeks, but i am looking forward to the break, as i'm sure you can tell.

Why are you online? You should be at work or uni or somefink! (nice day for it, huh?)

Steph said...

Ah the case for and against.
Now, I reckon you should put it to a vote.
Teh intarweb is always right.

kiki said...

mars, i am at work. been here since 7-fucking-am. kinda busy, kinda not.

just cruising my 'favourite' blogs every now-and-then

and never fear, i'd choose you over an emo any day of the week. i'd choose anything over an emo, probably even steph...

you still didn't say where you were going in the states???

Mars said...

You're right, the internerd is always right Steph.. so what say you? In or out?
Vote 1300 DOT to evict Dot
Vote 1300 MARS to evict Mars
Vote 1300 EMO to evict Emo

Keeks, that's cause i'm not exactly sure where i'm going. Definitely got a week in NY at the start and definitely end with a week in San Fran. Not too sure where in between exactly. DC, New Orleans, San Anotnio, Vagas, LA and that's about it i think.

You been all those places?

kiki said...

vegas, la, san fran and nyc of those listed

all pretty rad places if you ask me, 'cept i wasn't too fond of Vegas. just casinos and strip joints, but it's (relatively) close to the grand canyon - and that is a must see, so go to vegas

san fran is wikkid. very cool city, as is new york, always something going on

1300 EMO

kiki said...

if you're going to new york, you may as well chuck Boston in there too, only a 3.5 hour bus ride ($US25 one way)

Mars said...

Yeah, originally we had Boston on the list of places to go, but we thought that we'd probably rather have the time in NY. If we were going to Boston then there was only going to be 4 full days in NY and i don't think that's really enough. I would love to have gone to there though, seeing as Rob and Amber (TM) were my all time favourite Survivors and all...

Mars said...

Oh, and i went to try and get the Requium of a Dream movie and they don't have it at my video shop. So i got Transamerica instead.

kiki said...

why are you going to San Antonio?? do you have family there or something??

i'd drop that off the list and get to Boston

you referred to 'we..'
who makes up the posse 'we'?

Mars said...

I am going with my friend who lives in Ireland. We are meeting in NY - haven't seen her for about 3 years so it should be good. Going to San Antonio cause it's on the way to Vegas and Grand Canyon and stuff. No family there.. all my fam lives in Victoria, every last one of 'em would you believe?

Have you got all the details yet?!

Transamerica was good. I recommend it.

kiki said...

i believe that

and now i'm content with my knowledge of 'The Mars'

Mars said...

Sweet. I am now going to lay out on the banana lounge and try to forget that i exist for atleast the next 1 hour, or until the sun goes away.

Dave Mack said...

Well, no matter how nice emo maybe in your eyes, Dot.

HE IS STILL AN EMO! and thus deserves abuse and ridcule.

Enny said...

I saw all the comments and thought it musta been rife with argument in here!

But no, jus travelogues ;o)

1300 EMO!

Chesty LaRue said...

1300 Emo.

Absolutely evict him. Absolutely.

Don't know why I feel this way ... but I do.

Adam said...

1300 DOT


I'm voting for the house I want to watch.

Dot said...

i hate Adam.

kiki said...

yeah

adam's a fag

Enny said...

1300 ADAM!

Emo said...

1300 Mars

Mars said...

AY!

Adam said...

1300 hate.

This house has not enough sweet, sweet lovin'. I think you all need to get trashed together in a spa.

i said...

We are having a similar situation in our share house at the moment..

we told him to leave. but for some reason he hasn't left yet.. but no-one wants to bring it up again!! gah!

one thing i have noticed though.. is when your not happy with a housemate.. EVERYTHING they do is noticed. even if one of the other housemates who is not in the bad books does the same thing.. BAD HOUSEMATE CANNOT DO SOMETHING WITHOUT BEING NOTICED!! :P

best of luck with emo!

i.

Mars said...

iain, you are very correct with what you say about noticing EVERY little movement the problem housemate makes. this kid is just existing, the only way he knows how.. but his very presence annoys me. he just keeps COMPLETELY different hours to normal, and unfortunately (for me) has no idea how mental i am being driven! etc.
