Long Hiatus. [Feb. 4th, 2007|12:46 pm]

So, I've decided to start up this blog again. Part of me misses writing in the battered up notebook I carried all over Madrid, and part of me needs a new form of procrastination since Renee and I took a stand against facebook-addiction and locked eachother out of our accounts :-P.

When I went to take a shower this morning, the hot water went brrmmppp, and then stopped completely. Thus, unshowered me is currently curled up in a chair, full of delivery pizza, wearing a million layers of clothing. It is hella cold outside. I wanted to meet Byron downtown this afternoon, but it's just not happening. Last night, in the glorious -10 degree weather, or whatever it was, I walked a paltry 5 minutes, and then my fingers were too numb to punch in the house key code. So I got out my phone to call someone. Yep, fingers too numb for that too. Finally, I pressed my whole hand against the doorbell (forget about this fingers business), and rang it obnoxiously about 20 times till someone from the 3rd floor heard it and let me in :).

I'm contemplating skipping Latin practice to watch the Superbowl. I could care less about the football part, but there'll be food and commercials and good company and heat! All good things. Besides, it's just the lesson, so we wouldn't have time to go over any routines anyway. On the other hand, cha cha is seriously scary. Oh well, I don't think I'm going. I'll fiddle around with stuff in my room and then go to practice tomorrow night. Saturdays are always so draining - 2 hours practice, 2 hour lesson downtown. Dance is fun and all, but you hit a saturation point. It's too bad things can't be spread out a little more evenly over the course of the week.

In other news, there's a midterm tomorrow in Personality and I haven't studied yet, but am surprisingly calm. Prof. McAdams made it sound a little scary in class,("On the essays, write everything you know about the topic - any dates, names, specific studies - just write it down. It's quantity over quality, folks.") Yikes. I'll read through my notes, go over the books a bit, and take that sucker.

Wow, this is pretty long. Not sure if I'll make this friends-only or private entirely - although it might not matter, because I'm not sure if anyone is still reading this thing! Hasta luego, folks.

Some things just take you back. [Nov. 21st, 2006|05:01 am]

"What was it like? Time was condensed. If you held hands with a boy for 4 days it was like you were going out forever. Friendships were forged in a minute and love was intense. If you said something funny or profound, everyone who heard it held onto it and and it was repeated and memorized and quoted... as though the moment could be preserved and we could hold onto it forever and take comfort in it when we left. And when we did leave, it was heartbreak and you didn't know how you would survive. But inevitably you did."

Another page not found message [Sep. 19th, 2006|10:47 am]

I'm sorry, you've reached a page that I cannot find. I'm really sorry about this. It's kind of embarassing. Here you are, the user, trying to get to a page on LiveJournal and I can't even serve it to you. What does that say about me? I'm just a webserver. My sole purpose in life is to serve you webpages and I can't even do that! I suck. Please don't be mad, I'll try harder. I promise! Who am I kidding? You're probably all like, "Man, LiveJournal's webserver sucks. It can't even get me where I want to go." I'm really sorry. Maybe it's my CPU...no that's ok...how bout my hard drives? Maybe. Where's my admin? I can't run self-diagnostics on myself. It's so boring in this datacenter. It's the same thing everyday. Oh man, I'm so lonely. I'm really sorry about rambling about myself, I'm selfish. I think I'm going to go cut my ethernet cables. I hope you get to the page you're looking for...goodbye cruel world!

So this is what happens when you type the wrong address into LJ [Aug. 26th, 2006|03:05 pm]

LiveJournal Admin: Sir! We have reports that someone is trying to access a page that doesn't exist!
LiveJournal Captain: Impossible! How can that be?
LiveJournal Admin: Sir, I don't know. Maybe they typed in the URL wrong or maybe we're suffering from a critical system failure.
LiveJournal Captain: Unacceptable! Redirect them to a 404 page and make it snappy!

Really. Freakin'. Tired. [May. 3rd, 2006|12:19 am]

Ever since I dropped my Tuesday/Thursday class, I've refused to do any work on Monday or Wednesday nights because hey - why do work in advance? This leaves me frolicking on Mondays and Wednesdays and going crazy on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays (today included). Here are some amusing band names I came up with today while perusing the Spanish-English dictionary: Belligerent Beefeaters, Lamplight Lasagna, Quizical Pantsuit. Needless to say, my Spanish presentation still isn't finished :-P.

On Saturday, Guist, Renee, Sam and I got to be zombies for a Niteskool music video. Twas awesome. We met numerous sketchy fellows while hanging around the sketchy warehouse in Cicero where we were filming. We also scared a poor little chihuahua half to death.

I can't for the life of me figure out why I'm still awake. Tomorrow morning's going to be painful...
