Personally, I like nights that don't involve/end in me barricading myself into the laundry room, hyper ventilating, and playing the loudest song I can find on my ipod on repeat. But that's just me.



I just realized that the reason my certificate (and my laundry deposit check) have not arrived yet is because there is a postal strike. Der. But I heard that it's nearly over, come to me, sweet laundry deposit. Cam needs a bus pass.

reading too much into nothing

I never knew I could be this patient.

Or I have to start looking for meaning in the ludicrous amount of baking I've done.

But I prefer to think that I have hitherto untapped reserves of patience.

In the meantime, scones, butterscotch biscuits, cookies, creampuffs and pretzels (well, those are tomorrow). Possibly bread if I can conquer the breadmaker.

you always think this is a good idea

Brain, why are you such a liar? You think things like 'oh yeah! let's totally organize your closet/cabinet and your bedside-shelf-thing. A little order amongst the chaos will totally help. Except that, as per usual, the chaos is worse. The closet/cabinet does look pretty good though. Oh brain, I can't stay mad at you.

also, a poll. Would you, as a person, hold out for the job you might get that will probably pay well but is annoyingly far away and you have a 50/50 chance of actually enjoying? Or would you take the job you will get for certain that will not pay as well but you will enjoy and have enjoyed before? I am leaning towards option two, myself. And, of course, my mother thinks I should hold out for option one.


Analogous to library-fine-amnesty day or tax-amnesty day, this is the Things You Should Probably Know About Me But Forgot amnesty meme. Or alternatively, Things You Should Probably Know About Me But Never Knew. If there are things you'd feel embarrassed asking me to my face the next time you see me, or issues you've been careful not to raise because you didn't know my position on them or relationship to them, because it seems like something everyone else knows by now, just ask about it as a comment to this thread, and I'll answer it. Since it's the amnesty thread there will be zero guilt or embarrassment involved, even if it's something I might normally give you a hard time about not knowing.

In addition, if it is actually a Thing You Really Shouldn't Know About Me, I will not give you a hard time about thinking you should. I'll keep this thread unlocked unless conversations necessitate some kind of security settings.

sleep two hours, up twelve hours, sleep two hours...

by this pattern, I should be in bed at 8:30 tonight. Maybe I'll get a full nights sleep?



Augh. SEVEN DAYS UNTIL I GET TO GO HOME. (well, six at this point, I think)


by this time is seven (or six?) days I want to be at home, in my bed, being cuddled and trying not to elbow everyone who snores.

until then I am writing terrible, 14 year old worthy, emo poetry. and nothing you can do will stop me.


roughly eight days from now I will be home again, thank god.

so I can stop lying around and being mopey and wanting things I can't have because I am far away and whine whine whine.

okay, I will admit that most of the mopeyness is related to the fact that all my friends are out of school now and gone their separate ways and I don't get to see them and I HAVE NOT HAD PHYSICAL CONTACT OF ANY KIND IN FIVE DAYS. You know that 'I need hugs to get through the day because they make me happy and not mopey and annoying' thing I have? FIVE. DAYS.

So anyhow, to stop me from whining forever, I present a meme I picked up from somewhere!

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don’t blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don’t blog about, but you’d like to hear about, and I’ll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on tv, favorite type of underwear, stories I'm working on, travel, etc. (optional)Repost in your own journal so that we can all learn more about each other.

and now, some Dan Savage

"When two people marry, they're not only making a solemn vow to be there in good times and bad, in sickness and in health, but also to be complete and total whores for each other."

I have no idea how, but I am going to incorporate that into my wedding vows. Or something. Because it is beautiful and perfect. Maybe I'll bribe my best man into putting it into her speech? Maybe.
Well that was disappointing horrifying terrifying enraging awful saddening and a million other things.

I am so disappointed in my country and our electoral system.

The shock has worn away. So has the anger.

I am left with the sadness and the worst post-election nightmare I've ever had ever.

Like. It was a special kind of nightmare. The kind that are awful enough that in the back of your head you think that it couldn't possibly be real, but it feels real enough at the time.

I woke up this morning crying and afraid.

Maybe my tomorrow will be better.


in my dreams i can fly
and you can find me in the spring
