12:58 am - Lots and lots of sweet pictures....
All right, so I went on a wild picture-taking spree today.Collapse )

They are not the most attractive pictures, of this I am certain...but they are pretty amusing. Hopefully you'll agree.

Oh! Before I forget...here is the new tattooCollapse )

I am getting the flu so it's difficult to think coherently. Therefore, I'm going to end this entry here. I love Warren Wilson.

current mood: sick

You think with your heart, not your head

Sweet and considerate, you are a giver

But you're tough enough not to let anyone take advantage of you!

Not so sure about the last part.

1:49 am - My breasts are in high demand!
So tonight was interesting. Through the grapevine, I discovered that I am going to acquire a famous british stalker named Jamie Oliver and that he is going to fall in love with me and give me my own cooking show that will be featured on the food network and that i will write beautiful cookbooks that will sell like hotcakes (no pun intended) and use my new-found fame and money to make a smooth transition into the literary world and my dreamy new husband, Jamie, and I will live happily ever after, riding off into the sunset on a white horse with flaring nostrils. Let me rephrase this: it was rumored that Voodoo Dougnuts was going to be having a mock wedding, which was to be filmed around 10 pm by the Food Network (we ended up being mistaken - it was the Travel Channel) and all were welcome to come by and be extras. So I powdered my nose and hopped out the door, met Alexandrea and Sonja, and arrived at our heaven-scented destination....only to stand in the cold (and I mean COLD) for two hours before giving up, purchasing a couple of donuts, and staggering to the bustop. That damned place is so small that it was only able to fit the bride and groom's realtives and close friends. what a pisser! Also, you have no idea how many times I was requested to expose my breasts for a strand of cheap, plastic beads...which, by the end of the night, I really wanted for some unknown reason. Some light flashing may have been a bit more appealing if it hadn't have been NEGATIVE FIVE MILLION DEGREES OUT! Really, who thought to have mardi gras in Febuary? Also, um, Portland? Mardi gras? Just...uh uh. Anyway, it took my toesies two and a half hours to thaw out completely. How terrifying - I thought they were going to snap off! Anyway, bottom line: voodoo doughnut talent search = a bust; mardi gras = everyone wants to see my bust.

current mood: drained

Oh. Lord. I swears, this week is going to kill me. Have so much to do. The stress is eating away at my stomach lining. And my soul. Am kind of nauseated. At least my oceanography notecard is done. Now onto some serious anthro reading.

Am being eroded by my busy work schedule (see how I apply oceanography vocab to real life!!!)

Definitely the most painfully awkward thing I've seen in quite some time.

(obviously, am too busy and important for personal pronouns and/or complete sentences.)

Oh, and also, I am a XSIG--Expressive Sentimental Intellectual GiverCollapse )

10:40 pm - A Birfday Reflection
My interview went well, methinks. Basically, the most difficult question I was asked was "what is the most recent film you've seen at our theater?" soley because my answer was utterly humiliating...."ahem..er..thephantomoftheopera...cough."

Which leads me to my birthday. So Julia and Claire came by around three twenty and we trekked down to the movie theater to see said film (don't ask me why we wanted to see it - not a one of us could give you an answer, even if we wanted to do so). It was, of course, insanely melodramatic and cheesy and that damned girl who played christine didn't close her stupid mouth once, but I enoyed it immensely...anyway, so, due to the fact that i had been in the dark, absorbed by a world filled with ruffled shirts and maniacal organ music, the fact that it was my birthday was kind of tucked into the back of my mind. Julia told me that Makenna wanted to meet us somewhere for coffee, but we had to pick her up, so we headed over the river, stopping in this strange little area that I did not recognize as anywhere near makenna's house. I thought that perhaps Julia had fallen into a black ditch of sadism and had decided to make us walk to Makenna's (I am such an idiot.) We rounded a corner and Julia started walking into a restaurant, which baffled me - "b-but...Makenna doesn't live in a restaurant!" I spotted Josef first and immediately thought, "Oh my gentle Jesus, WHAT A COINCIDENCE!!!" Then i saw Phil and Hannah and Sarah and Makenna and things started to fall into place. "SUPRISE!" So, I was thrown a suprise party at this little Cuban place called "Pambiche" (which is by far my new favorite restaurant). Afterwards, we played a viscious game of Catchphrase, Brian and Phil and i went to Coffee Time for a couple of hours, bonded...and then I was coerced into getting a Fantasy Video Membership. okay, coerced isn't really the right word...perhaps accompanied should be thrown in there somewhere in its place. Anyway, that was quite the experience. It wasn't so much the overwhelming variety of dildos/rubber vaginas/porn in general that I found so flabberghasting...but the fact that they were playing good music. Damien Rice, Rufus Wainwright...all competing with Madonna's "Like a Virgin" that was also on. That was truly shocking. Anyway, that was my birthday. It was fairly mellow, but very nice. Very very very nice. And utterly completely and totally touching. I am desperately in love with my friends. So....


current mood: thankful

10:55 pm - "He looks like the kind of fellow who would brothe..."

Unfortunately, I cannot take credit for this - Josef found it. It was going to be my icon, but exceeded some sort of limit or another (I didn't really pay much attention). I just thought, you know, that you needed to see it, because it made me giggle.

Application to University of North Carolina at Asheville is complete and sent sent sent.

Listening to "Dear Sir" reminds me how amazing Cat Power is and how much I've missed listening to her.

I have nothing to say.

EDIT: And here I thought I'd be kip!
