listening to: tori, taxi ride

*rages* i am not speaking to my cd burner until he apologizes to me. suuurry megan, megan, kellie, and anyone else i told i'd burn stuff for... he's being SUCH a jerk right now. cds will burn and burn until 99%, and then stay there infinitely. unfortunately, the last percent is apparently when it closes the cd, so it won't play at all if it's not all the way finished. i've tried it at different speeds, track-at-once, disc-at-once.... *frowl* none of it works. and i have a growing pile of ruined discs. stupid cd burner.

yeah. and i'm so tired it's all i can do to sit up. so. i think i'll sleep.

renata: yeah... that woudl suck. ew. i hope i get a cool roommate.

my arm itches. *scratch scratch*

i'm so proud with my on-top-of-itness... i've been getting all my homework done in advance and junk. go me. *pats self on back*

oh, and i seem to have inadvertently become the total pet of the new psych teacher... after class today, he was like "renata, have you taken a psychology class before?" "no.. why?" "wow! you're really smart!!" *blink* i wasn't even trying to suck up. wow. *taps fingers together a la mr. burns* this should come in handy when i need college recommendation letters, especially as he has a "dr." in his name.... muwaaahahahaha. ha.

*considers* i'm hungry. but i already told my mom i wasn't, because, well, i wasn't at the time. but if i go back downstairs to get food, she'll talk to me about colleges for another 45 minutes, i just knooow it. that, or why don't i have a boyfriend yet. but that's another story.

hm. i think that's about all i have to say for now.

listening to: ani d, buildings and bridges

*flail* so okay... my bookshelf.. the shelves are held up by these stupid little metal prong things, so that you can move the shelves around and adjust their heights... well, just now i heard this loud noise... so i look over, and one side of the top shelf has fallen over, and is now resting on top of the books on the shelf beneath it. then i realize that the other side is also only supported by the books under it, i just hadn't noticed because the books on that side are taller. and then i realize that this shelf, the one that is holding up the top shelf... it doesn't have any metal things either, it's resting on the cd-rom tower on the shelf beneath it. so basically... the 3 top shelves are all supported by this one shelf. *flail* so if i don't post again... someone come save me, i've probably been crushed by a falling bookshelf.

listening to: guys and dolls, luck be a lady

so... i came home and had this sudden inexplicable urge to listen to guys and dolls. *flail* i'm so confused.

anyway. euro today was hilarious, eliz and i ended up in a discussion group with rebecca... and... ooooh my god. like. that girl is so full of herself it's just... vastly amusing. (and i don't feel bad about not liking her, because she's HORRIBLY mean to anyone who she doesn't think is as smart as she is. somehow i've made her grade, but seriously, she's SO rude to so many people. it makes me mad. who the hell does she think she is?) anyway. we had to make a list of 20 things in the category of "european culture and intellectuals", which was really vague, but you know, really easy. eliz and i had, you know, "shakespeare, bach, kafka, seurat, monet, einstein.." etc. and then out of nowhere rebecca's like "oh, there aren't any french intellectuals. at least, i never met any." (she spent like, a month or so in france.) *snicket* it's just so funny how she thinks she knows so much. but she had to ask me who seurat and kafka were. so eat it, bitch.

anyway. oh. on saturday at metropolis i saw this thing that i thought would be a perfect birthday gift for.. someone. but someone's birthday is a long way away, and i didn't have that much money with me, so i figured i'd come back later and get it... so i went back today... and it was gone! *sob* but the guy said that more of these things would come in in a few weeks. so yay.

my foot is really gross. like, it doesn't hurt that much any more.. but the skin isn't healing back together. there's like.. this very visible crack in my foot. it really creeps me out. feckin' doormat. *frowl*

aaanywho, that's about it for now..

portmanteau word: a word coined by combining two other words, encompassing the original meanings of both component parts. (a portmanteau is a suitcase that opens up into both components.) lewis carroll invented the term, explaining it as follows: "you see, it's like a portmanteau... there are two meanings packed up in one word." some portmanteau words have become commonplace in english vocabulary.

examples: the word slithy from lewis carroll's poem "jabberwocky" (1871) is made up by combining slimy and lithe, humpty dumpty explains to alice. smog, coined from smoke and fog, has become familiar today, as has chortle, a word derived from chuckle and snort. contemporary portmanteau words include spork (a spoon and fork combined into a single utensil), splurchase (a splurged-on purchase) and spanglish (a "tossed salad" of spanish and english.)

... so, why, praytell, was frowl neglected from this list? i should write an angry letter to the authors of the bedford glossary of critical and literary terms. shame on them.

listening to: rhps, sweet transvestite

i juuust watched beauty and the beast. yay! however, i noticed a disturbing time incontinuity (note: yes, i am a nerd)... the enchantress said that the rose would bloom until his 21st year. does that mean his 21st birthday, or his 21st year of being a beast? because later lumiere says something about it having been 10 years since the enchantment was placed. so if it was his 21st birthday, the beast was only 11 when that happened. and if it was the 21st year of being a beast... well... then that doesn't work at all. *flail*

and no, i have absolutely no problem with the logistics of talking furniture. but dammit, they could at least get their time sequence right.

*amuuuused*

so i was reading the archives at rockapella.com... "I've quickly become a hard-core kickboxing junkie, a coldly efficient middle-aged killing machine. Actually I suck at it, but it rewards me with an endorphin rush that feels like a mainline jet fuel injection. It also helps that, aside from the teacher, I'm the only guy in the class. "

and "So don't be looking here for any violently partisan commentary about the s***** b****** who s**** the election."

i baked a cake today! it was swirly! and then i made butterflies!*

*fine, i didn't really make butterflies. that was delirium. but i just didn't think the swirly cake was impressive enough on its own. *sob* i'm so inadequate.

hmm. so i let my mom borrow barrel fever, and she bent the cover *sniff* so i was pressing it flat with this giant astrology book somebody gave me for christmas (i have nooo idea why... but that's okay. it comes in handy for flattening things.) anyway, it's called the secret language of birthdays so i thought i'd check out the secret language of my birthday. apparently i am a "mutable air." and sarte and i have the same birthday. and i'm ruled by jupiter! *flail* yeah. but... um... this is mostly nothing like me. apparently i'm egotistical and obsessed with style, and i'm a workaholic who's hard to get along with. but, i'm intense and good with money.

hmm. "in addition, if any one of their activities assumes an addictive cast it can crowd out everything else in their life, and require higher and higher 'doses' to satsify them. this kind of activity can lead to sociopathic behavior..."

*hides box of rent playbills* i'm not obsessive.. nooo...

also, i should be a vegetarian... to keep me grounded.

i'm SO amused.

let's see... according to this, trina is very pragmatic, but needs to learn to tolerate weakness in others. miriam needs to learn not to always act on her desires, and to curb her appetite for danger. elizabeth sees herself as a "defender of the faith, preserver of tradition." and she values wit, charm, and humor. talia "appears detached and cool." and she's handy around the house! priscellie is "quick to show her displeasure with all overt forms of authority and repression." and you have a ready wit and an excellent sense of humor :) megan is quick-witted and the "master of the short, ironic, and sometimes devastating comment". and she enjoys "sensuous activities." oh, and her friends are "earthy people who, though intelligent, know how to relax and have fun." woot.

it would seem that my mom is in one of her moods today... she totally lost it a bit ago when she found out that reid ate the last little breakfast pizza thingie. she yelled at him for like five minutes about it, and then my dad came downstairs and she just sat there and bitched to him about how she wanted a breakfast pizza. and then she sort of glowered at me and asked me if i had any homework (and i was eating toast! i was innocent of stealing her breakfast pizzas!) and i said "a little", and she said "good, go get some windex and clean all the outside windows."

*blink*

oh, and chelle... at the corn festival, i kept thinking people said "porn" instead of "corn", which led to some amusing mishearings... "hey, porn is only a quarter!" "the boy scouts are selling porn!" and et cetera.

priscellie is my herd!! *points at death* look how evenly her hair is outlined! and it's all neat and wispy and such! *heart* and yeaaah, i want to hear maa music! i remember listening to one of the songs a looong time ago, but... i hadn't read the book... so... it didn't make any sense. *nod* yeah. and now your discworld art makes sense! yay!

anywho. going to go clean the windows, now... *flower*

*sigh* still bored... wheeeere is everyone? i know.. trina is in alabama, miriam is babysitting, and rob is watching chick flicks... and kellie's away message claaaaims she's "studying". right ^_~ so where are the rest of you? *flail*

anywho, priscellie.. the way u-high's scheduling works is that you're required to have 6 credits a year, and 24 to graduate. each class is 55 minutes, with a 5 minute passing period. each u-high class counts as .5 credits a semester. where it gets tricky is that we're allowed to take any 100-level (sometimes higher... it's a bit fluid) isu or heartland (community college) class we want, and those are 1 credit a semester. (also, if you have an "academic overload" you can waive pe. yay!) so my math class is at heartland, and it meets from 5-7, twice a week. *cracks knuckles* and this beautiful thing is how i have 3 free hours (4 if you count 7:00.) *purrs* and i'm graduating with... *thinks* 27 or 28 credits, i forget. yay!

Sweet and sheltered, but not just another pretty face, I've overcome some tough times, and have nowhere to go but up. Only the most hardened sociopaths -- and, well, fanatical Eppie/Marius 'shippers -- have anything bad to say about me.

Which Les Miserables Character Are You?




You're Sister Simplice!
Who you are: Fantine's caretaker.

This is your life: You are a nun who works in the infirmary in Montreuil with your counterpart, Sister Perpetue. You are well-known for never having lied in your life, but you fib for Valjean's sake without batting an eye. Go you.

Random fact: You like getting mail.

...and what Obscure Minor Character In Les Miserables are you?

soo... let's see. miriam and i went to cornfest... and... uh, ate some corn. *nod* ran into liz and tony... and stalked rob and aaron at the library. oh, and i went to acme to try to buy the wake but they only had it in hardcover... so.... no. and then.. miriam and i went to barnes and noble, and i bought tess of the d'urbervilles for lit, and also this reaaally cool beatles book for my dad (his birthday is tomorrow.) but when i got home i discovered that he already haaas it. life is so hard. anywho, then we went over to target and i got some more neosporin for my stupid foot, aaaand some hello kitty bandaids! they're SO cute! i can't wait until the next time i hurt myself so i can use one! *blink* um, yes. goooodtimes.

and then i dropped miriam back off at her car... and.. .went home. and here i am! oh, and i wrote a poem for megan. probably no one else will find this funny (maybe kait? kait, do you know the hat story? *flail*) but that's okay, because iiii do.

*runs off and changes into all black*

ahem... my life is a dark pit of darkness... and that bitch megan never gave me my stuart cd... the ravens circle me, calling my name, calling me to join them... but alas, i am far too emo to do so. so i sit and i cry, cry, cry for my lost stuart cd.

woot. i'm so emo.

*swivels* well, since priscellie and *nina* posted their schedules, and they're my role models, i'll post mine too ^_^

yay! i just got the mail! *glomps priscellie* and yay bat boy! and i'm SO amused by the little pirate drawing... hee.

anywho... been reading more the kindly ones and i'm still terribly angry at that foreword. *flower* but. yeah. the corinthian really disturbs me... but... i guess he'd be a bit of a failure if he didn't. also, i realized that when this artist (*too lazy to go get the book and look*) draws him, he kiiinda looks like the new psychology teacher.... who also kinda unsettles me. but luckily, the psych teacher has eyes. so that's alright then. anyway. i'm just so amazingly impressed with how well the whole sandman series ties together. i mean each book technically does stand alone, but if you read them all in order... you really really notice how many characters and themes return. wow. (also, i keep seeing very very american gods-esque things crop up in sandman, which i think is cool. *nod*) *heaaarts neil*

this is totally the best song about a cannibal ever. well... maaybe 2nd best, if you count me and elizabeth's (elizabeth and mine? *shrug*) donner party theme song. but still... "they called him a murderer, a cannibal, a thief/ it just doesn't pay to eat anything but government inspected beef."

anyway. the dance kinda sucked, but i wasn't expecting much else... since ah... i don't like to dance... and... my foot hurts a lot when i put weight on it... and... well, such. *nod* but it was alright. steak n' shake afterwards was looooots of fun, we kept scaring the waiter. (elizabeth yelled out "INCEST IS THE BEST!" riiight as he walked by... *long pause* don't ask why we were talking about incest. it's tony's fault.)

i really freaked myself out driving home tonight.... i don't know HOW many times i've gone down this street, but for some reason tonight i was like "oh god! i'm driving down the wrong side of the street!! how long have i been doing this?!" and then.. i realized it was a one-way street. *nod*

anywho. priscellie, i heart you soo much! yay! and yeah, the picture is in my version of a doll's house, but mine is really old (i bought it used), and it has a different cover and such. and it's not on like.. glossy paper, it's on like, regular paper.. so i scanned it in, but it's kind of a weird color from the paper. heeere she is. (i didn't mess with the size at all, the one i'm using right now is, let me see... 204x375 pixels... so... *gesture* somewhere in that general size would be good.) anyway... thank you, merci, gracias, danke... er... *insert other languages and copious hearts here*

oh yeah, and tomorrow... cornfest, miriam, tony and i are meeting in front of the post office at 2:30ish... and you should too. *pokes people within poking range*

i can't decide if i like this song or not. but i think i do. *nod*

anywho. i realized that since i finished reading alll my euro books, i've fulfilled my bargain with myself and thus can continue reading sandman! yay! and um... if you haven't read the kindly ones yet... do not, under any circumstances, read the foreword. *flail*

anyway. so it's good so far, i heart it. it's a different style of art than the last 8... well i mean they were all slightly different.. but this is more... um.. *hand gesture* with the thingies... and the... lines... and... uh... *flail*... stuff. but i like it. *nod*

oh, and rob, i juuust tried to call you.. .but your family doesn't know where you are. *shrug* so anyhow, if you happen to read this, we're all *vague hand gesture to indicate "all"* going to be at the stupid dance.. prolly... around 9:30 or so. *shrug* yeah. and prolly steak n' shake (note: originally typed "stake n' shake") or somesuch afterwards. *nod*

hmm.. so... my mom just looked at the cut on my foot, and she flipped out... "renata! that needs stitches! why didn't you show me that sooner?!" "no... i don't need stitches, it's fine... *flees*" so yeah... if i get gangrene and have to have my foot amputated, well, it'll be my oooown fault.

oh yeah, and since i'm lazy and use my blog like email... priscellie, since you're home now and such... could you do me a favor? *big eyes* i think it should be fairly easy, but i'm not sure since... i don't have... graphicy software.. and.. talent... and stuff... anywho, *points at death* see how her hair is more outlined on the right side than on the left? it's cos the original picture [you can see it in the afterword of a doll's house, at least my version..]... half of her head is in front of dream, so it had an outline, but the other half was just in front of white, so whoever scanned that added a black background and an outline.. but it's different. yeah. so if sometime you had a bit of free time and could make one side more outlined or the other one less outlined, whichever's easier... that would be peachy keen ^_^ but if not, no big deal at all, just thought i'd ask. *heart*

first offfff.... happy birthday taaalia!

anywho. today was a good day ^_^ i was on time for class, and nooo spanish on fridays! *prances* lesse... pobre amanda lost her keys, so she, ashvin and i had an adventure at 1 o'clock driving over to mccormick to try to find them. (unsuccessful ~_~) but while we were waiting for the parking services guy to come break into her car to see if she locked them in it, we played some parking ramp tennis... which was good times. (ashvin is a tennis player, so he had like 4 rackets and 50000 tennis balls in his trunk). so yeah, that was fun. but i hope someone finds aman's keys and turns them in...

anywho. so at 2pm it was just amanda and i, and we were bored and didn't feel like doing homework... so we invented this game. we set up a wall (er.. a water bottle, an empty dr. pepper can, a bottle of lotion, and amanda's purse) and the object was to flip the bottle lid over the wall. it was actually a whoooole lotta fun, and we were being really loud, as is to be expected. so then these 4 freshman boys come over and are like "what are you guys doing?" "it's a game! it's fun!" "what are you guys? *disdainful voice* sophomores?" "aaactually, we're seniors." "*annoying boys make more comments and walk away*" amanda: "god, i really hate annoying cocky freshman boys, don't you?" "yes, yes i do!" lol.

well, we were amused.

i'm so tired. amanda coerced me into agreeing to go to the stupid back to school dance tonight. (she's on student senate, so she has to go, so she bullies all her friends into going too. damn her.)

i'm going to do some laundry, and take a nap maybe, and... junk. *nod*

annendum to last post: i remembered the thing i was supposed to do... bring ms. scott's ronald reagan paper dolls ^_^

yeah. oh, and i realized how impressively calm i was about being half an hour late for class. like.. if that had happened freshman year, i would have FLIPPED out. but now i was just like "... meh." i'm not sure if it's good that i'm less stressed out, or bad that i'm more of a slacker. hmm. anywho, that's all. *nod*

listening to: beatles, hey jude

owie. kickboxing made my foot sad. *pats foot* aaanywho. this morning my alarm completely failed to go off, so i woke up around 8:45... my first class is at 9... and i have a half hour drive... so... you do the math.

yeah, go me. fortunately, it's thetard, and... yeah, she doesn't care. and apparently all i missed was a discussion on the irony of the cask of montillado. which... yeah.

*flail* i told my mom about the house on the rock, and she was like "oh, yeah, you've been there!" *flail* but apparently i was really little. (dammit, ths is like when i was little, and i wanted to go to disney world really badly, and my parents were like "you've already BEEN there!" and i was like "i was like 3 months old! that doesn't COUNT!") anywho. yeah, and she said we were thinking about going up to wisconsin next weekend (my grandparents have a summer cabin up there) and we could go! yay!

crap. there was something i had to do when i got home, and i was going to write it on my hand, but then i was like "naaah, i'll remember!" but.. now i don't. *thiiinks*

*thinks some more*

nothing homework related, i don't think...oh wait, maybe i just needed to remember to mail megan's sweatshirt. (which i did! *hearts to megan*) hmm. oh well.

*gasp!*

Will Alan Cumming and Natasha Richardson return to Cabaret? Broadway.com has learned that plans are afoot to bring the stars back to the revival for a brief limited engagement for the production to be filmed for television.

dude, that would rock my face off.

oh, and i heart priscellie ^_^

listening to: ani d, worthy

an update in the ongoing stupidity of renata:

so i go to do my spanish homework and realize i don't have my book. "okay," i said to myself. "i bet it's in the car. i'll just run outside barefoot and look." so i do... but i step on our doormat on the way out. our doormat, which i had previously thought to be made of woven plastic, actually seems to be made of some sort of friggen RAZOR material, and it takes off a good 2 inches or so of skin on the ball of my foot.

owie.

(oh, and rob, an update on the blood: it started leaking through the bandaids, so i had to change them >_<)

anywho. in other news, megan went to the house on the rock!! *flail* the house on the rock!! and she saw the carosel! and the "drunkard's dream"! and she bought me a floaty pen! *flail flail* (if you don't understand how cool this is... go read american gods by neil gaiman riiiiight now.)

*flail* anywho.. yeah. i so need to go. i knew it was in the midwest someplace, of course, since... it... says so in the book... but.. it never ocurred to me to actually like.. find it. yeah. it's in wisconsin. *nod* i so need to go there sometime.

but for now i just need to go to sleep.

listening to: dar williams, teenagers, kick our butts

taking a break from my (boring squared) euro readings to point this out: "If records are accurate, enormous quanities of ale were consumed. A monastery in the twelfth century records a daily allotment to the monks of three gallons a day, far above the weekend consumption of many present-day college students." this brings three things to my mind: 1. wouldn't "drunk monks" be a good name for a band? 2. i'm amused that college students are the unit for measurement of alcoholic consumption. and 3. more than most college students? meaning there are, indeed, some that drink more than 3 gallons a day? *flail* that's a lot! think about it! it's mind boggling!

dude, friggen ow... when i got gas on my way home, i decided to clean out my car, cos it was getting gross... so like, i was sort of crouching down on the ground so i could pick all the junk off the floor, and then i stood up and totally whacked my thigh on the bottom of the door... already there's this big swollen slash on my leg. it's totally going to leave the bruise from hell. say it with me: life's so hard.

anywho. megan! remember those grey and pink sweatshirts at aeropostale that we both liked a lot but were too cheap to buy at full price? they were on sale today ^_^ $15 off! yay! so i got one. aand this really comfy (i like the word comfy. comfy comfy comfy) sweater at old navy. and they both have hoods, so i can scare jenny! (jenny is afraid of people wearing hoods. we all enjoy exploiting this because we're bad people.)

anyway... i still have one more book to read for euro... and a paper to write about it... so... i'm gonna go... do that. yeah.

[which reminds me, "my car" is now actually my car, because my mom got sick of sharing and went out and got a new.. well, new in 1991... car for herself. yay!] um... and... they stopped making the kind of mechanical pencils i like! and... my toe hurts!

i heart matt.

random thought: does anyone else think it's funny that meat loaf played eddie in the movie, and they ate eddie... and you eat meatloaf! *flail flail*

*cough*

yes.

anywho. saw forever plaid again. it's SO funny. and everyone in it is sooo good. *frowl* i'm so jealous of people who are good at stuff.

my mom's in a really evil mood. frumble. so my last day before school starts is going to be spent cleaning. *frowl* the thing that kind of upsets me about my mom sometimes... is like... okay. she's ALWAYS on about how dirty the house is. but she never cleans. at all. in fact she doesn't do anything except make jewelry. and okay, fine, that's her right. but it seems to me that since she's not working (she's a teacher) and it upsets her that much that the house is dirty.. maybe she could clean a little bit too. or do the laundry. or cook dinner maybe. or.. oh well. i guess i shouldn't complain.

*flail flail* my aim logo thing in the taskbar.. it's flashing with a mailbox! *flail* what? i don't have a netscape email address! and i don't want one! which reminds me, i got this letter (in the mail. not email) that's like.. "your domain FROWL.ORG expires in FEBRUARY!" and it wanted me to move it to some other host.. and it was like "get a 3 PAGE WEBSITE" lol. "hmm, okay, who needs 100 megs? a 3-page website! that's a fabulous offer! where do i sign up?!"

You are 43% geek
You are a geek liaison, which means you go both ways. You can hang out with normal people or you can hang out with geeks which means you often have geeks as friends and/or have a job where you have to mediate between geeks and normal people. This is an important role and one of which you should be proud. In fact, you can make a good deal of money as a translator.

Normal: Tell our geek we need him to work this weekend.


You [to Geek]: We need more than that, Scotty. You'll have to stay until you can squeeze more outta them engines!


Geek [to You]: I'm givin' her all she's got, Captain, but we need more dilithium crystals!


You [to Normal]: He wants to know if he gets overtime.

mmmm, my pajamas smell like trina's house now. *sniff* mmm.

(trina's house always smells pleasantly of curry, and it's impossible to spend any length of time there without coming away smelling faintly of it. it's a familar smell to me. it makes me wonder if other people smell like my house when they leave it, and if so, what does my house smell like?)

btw, kellie, i hope your party is progressing nicely ^_^ i wanted to come... but little sleep and dealing with uhigh put me in a mood best suited for skulking about my house in curry-scented pajamas, and not for being allowed near other human beings.

so now i think i'm off to the coffeehouse to.. drink coffee and read some european history until my appointment with jd at 4:15.

and then i called miriam... and she was like "come over!" so i did, but she wasn't there. so i talked to her mom for awhile, and then miriam showed up. and.. we went to target, and the post office. and then we decided to see a movie... so we called talia.. and she was going to come with us and we were like "yay!" but then she changed her mind and we were like "aww!" and wow this is a really long sentence. *pause*

so um yeah. we saw road to perdition and it was really good. hella depressing, but good. and beaaaautiful. and then we went to liz's house and ended up swimming with tj, rob, megan, tony... some other chick. well, and liz. it was fun. *nod* except rob needs to keep his hands where i can see them ^_~

listening to: dar williams, are you out there?

random amusing quote: "oh, i'm all talk"
"yeah, you never follow through with anything"
"are you implying that i never follow through with anything?? i'll kill you!"
"no, you won't"
".. yeah, you're right. but i should!"

i hate my burner >_< i tried to burn a mix cd for kait today, and 4 times it gave me output errors at assorted points of completion... *frowl* and then just now it locked up twice while i was trying to get the cd out of the drive. it just wouldn't open. and then i tried to play it, and it locked up. *frowl* but.. i'll try again. because i heart kait ^_^

ooh, and i found these random shoes in my closet that i forgot i had, and they still fit, so it's like new shoes! for free! adn then today i bought spongebob laces for them, and they're SO cool. here, observe:

note my pasty, pasty ankle

um. and my brother came in my room to ask a question... and i answered it... and then i put a plastic bag on my head and announced "i am the pope." it amused me so i took a picture of that too. i was holding a wand too, but it wasn't in the frame of the photo, and i didn't feel like taking another one. *nod*



yeah. um. i need a hobby.

listening to: paul simon, call me al

i heart kait and kait hearts me ^_^ *mwah!*

woohoo, last night i put a random bunch of playbills i found in my bottom drawer on ebay for $5, and someone already bid on it!! people never bid on the first day of the auction! *dances* so now not only do i have fewer playbills.. i'll have $5! (btw: if anyone wants any rent, les miz, or lion king playbills... just let me know and i'll hook you up ^_^)

i had something else to say. but it probably wasn't important.

listening to: lloyd cole, rattlesnakes

you know how when you don't know what music you want to listen to so you just set winamp on random and keep hitting "next" until something feels right? i just did that for about 2 minutes straight and settled on lloyd cole. how very random.

anyway. my head hurts. i've been reading candide and it's so fucked up. i mean really. the plot is so absurdly contrived that it's almost monty-python-esque at times. and i mean i understand that you're supposed to read it for the social commentary and the philosophical content... but dude, would it have killed him to make it make sense?

i heart megan. and you should too.

hmm, i just realized something... in the original rattlesnakes, he sings "she's obvious despite herself" but tori sings "she's oblivious despite herself". okay, i'm a geek. *swivel* i think "obvious" makes more sense in the context... but that's okay, i still like tori's version better.

*yaaawn* i am SO tired. i don't know why. well. i mean i guess it's because i went kickboxing today and i didn't sleep well last night and i'm iron-deficient and it's 12:30 am. but i mean aside from that i don't know why i'm tired. right.

listening to: talking heads, and she was (*pokes megan*)

hmm. so. those of you who have ever called my cell phone probably know that the odds are astronomically high that i will not answer it, but will call you back 30 seconds later and ask you, slightly frantically, if you just called me. this is partially because i never hear the phone in time, partially because i can never find it in time, and partially because my cell phone is satan. (yeah, i always pictured him as being more demony, or maybe more roblike... but nope, he's my cell phone.)

(yes, i am going somewhere with this. kinda.) so anyway, i missed a call, but it said i had a new voice mail, so i checked it. turned out i actually had 2 voicemails... the first one was about 5 minutes long, and proved to be a fuzzy version of "electric blues" from hair followed by about half of "everybody wants to rule the world." this confused me a lot at first... but then i realized that those songs are both on one of my cartapes... so i must have somehow... left myself a voicemail while driving. *blink*

go me!

listening to: mst3k, godzilla genealogy bop

i LOVE the godzilla genealogy bop. "... and their firstborn was godzuki, and now we begin to sing! godzuki went to hollywood, an agent to the stars! he had an affair with lorna luft and smoked those big cigars..." [note: i wasn't sure how to spell 'godzuki', so i asked rob,but he wasn't sure either, but he thought it was 'godzookie'... but i liked 'godzuki' better. of course i could have avoided this whole mess by quoting a line that didn't involve godzuki. but, too late now.]

anyway. before i got distracted by the godzilla genealogy bop, i was going to post that i sorta worked on the thespian website layout. actually, it's a lot like this one.. but... without death. and different colors. *blink* ah well. all my layouts look pretty much alike. but with different colors. so. um. yes.

*swivel* i'm tired.

listening to: beauty and the beast, me

random amusing quote: "actually, my name used to be lola. i ran, and i ran, and then i got tired and changed my name to trina."

excuse me for a moment. i believe i feel a rant coming on.

ah, the female body. so well designed for certain things... child bearing, for one.

however, for other things, it's just.. not so good. jumping jacks. jogging. the like. particularly females with ta-tas over a certain size. so then you wear a sports bra and try to smoosh them in. this is all well and good, but after a certain point there's just so much smooshing you can do.

it would do well for oh, kickboxing instructors and the like to keep such things in mind.

that is all.

I'm Death!
Which Member of the Endless Are You?

yay! i think maybe i took this once before, a longish time ago... but... i found it again today. yes. yay death ^_^ (and i didn't cheat at allll! i was actually thinking i'd probably end up as delirium.. but nope!)

so. *swivels* i could sweeear megan told me to go to registration to sell tickets for forever plaid from 12-2 but appaaaarently it was really 10-2. not like it matters, since about 2 people bought them. anyway. then i went to best buy and bought some new blank cds, and talia, i finally got the tori cd to burn ^_^ yay!

listening to: the boomtown rats, i don't like mondays

random amusing quote: "did she just say 'let's get kinky?'"
"um, or 'let's get KICKY'..."

okay so this morning i started reading brief lives... ooooh my goodness it's so goooood. definitely the best sandman book so far. and um. that's really good. i heart delirium. "what's the name of the word for the precise moment when you realize that you've actually forgotten how it felt to make love to somebody you really liked a long time ago?" "there isn't one." "oh. i thought maybe there was." and i really like the way all her speech bubbles are rainbow-y. what can i say... simple joys ^_^

over the weekend my grandmother gave me a large sum of money, which i promptly went out and spent a majority of on books ^_^ i bought... worlds' end and the kindly ones (sandman viii and ix), men at arms, and after the black death. (er, that last one is for euro. in case you couldn't tell.)

i have a big bruise on my knee. i'm not sure where it came from. i probably ran into a table. that's where the bruises on my hip and shin came from, anyway.

listening to: beatles, she's leaving home

i had this really weird, complicated dream last night... i don't remember all of it... but there was this guy... and for some reason dr. romance [note: a frightening teacher from metcalf, and yes, that's his real name. dr. tom romance.] was trying to kill him. so my friends and i were trying to save him... and, okay, this is weird... the guy had a pool in his backyard, and dr. romance kept ranting about how he was going to "cloud his brain with chlorine" but somehow we knew what he meant. and it didn't really involve the pool. so naturally, we decided to throw a couch through his window and apparently that would solve everything. and i guess it did.

so then dr. romance runs out and gives this cartoonish monologue about us foiling his plans (although luckily, i don't believe the phrase "meddling kids" was used) so we all run off to our cars and drive away... except i was like, running in slow motion, and dr. romance almost caught me... but i made it to jenny's car, and we were trying to get away... but she drove the wrong way... and then, i'm not sure if the guy lived at chuck e. cheese or if the dream just moved... but either way we were driving around a chuck e. cheese parking lot trying to escape. (this is fitting, as jenny works at chuck e. cheese.) but this was a crazy parking lot... there were 4 sections, and like.. you had to drive over grass to get between them... and then the whole place was surrounded by a moat, but an empty moat... and the only way out was over this drawbridge... i woke up right around here, so i'm not sure if we ever made it over the stupid drawbridge or not.

yeah. *swivel* anyway, and then i was bored so i actually clicked on excite's little free astrology report thingie... and um, it was actually pretty fecking accurate. which sort of disturbs me. does this mean that everyone who was born on the afternoon of june 21, 1985 is like me? *flail* anyway... if you're also bored and want to read mine... click here.

listening to: sarah mclachlan, adia

*frowl* so i thought to myself, "self, i think i'm in the mood to listen to some sarah mclachlan." "luckily for us, self, i have two sarah mclachlan cds over in that stack!" i successfully located both cds, and put mirrorball into the computer. then i realize it's one of those fecking enhanced cds that my computer refuses to acknowledge at all.. it won't play the enhancements, it won't recognize it as a music cd, it reads it as a blank disc. stupid computer. so i said "okay, self, we'll just listen to surfacing instead!" unfortunately... surfacing is also an enhanced cd. life's so hard. sooo i had to break out my discman.

i just wanted to rant about that. damn artists and their need for enhancing cds, damn them.

ooooh! and ani's nebulously-named 9-11 poem is apparently officially titled "self evident" and it's going to be on her new cd so much shouting, so much laughter! [so much shouting/so much laughter/ last night's underwear in my back pocket/ sure sign of the morning after/ take me home/ take me home and leave me there/ think i'm gonna cry/ don't know why/ think i'm gonna sing myself/ a lullabye...]

*fidgets* sorry about that... i got all caught up in the moment ^_^ anyway.. woohoo, and it's going to have dilate and tamburitza lengua and my iq and loom and revelling.. and.. actually, i hate revelling... but... still, yay! *is highly anticipatory*

there are a bunch of ladybugs on my ceiling. i keep threatening to kick them, but so far they seem highly non-threatened. it's a standoff. *frowl* well... as long as they stay on the ceiling... i'll be alright. *glances suspiciously upwards* but i'm WATCHING you guys, you HEAR me? *shakes fist*

listening to: cree summer, revelation sunshine

oh my goodness... i decided to clean up my room, since it was getting... a bit out of hand. but first, i had to clean out my desk so i'd have a place to put all the junk that's on the floor.. i found some neato stuff, let me tell you... a bunch of old copies of x-files magazine (yes, i used to buy txf magazine)... '98, wow. that's... 4 years ago. an earnest script... oops. a 1999 interview with heather headley, in which she discusses her fondness for divorce court. an unopened package of jelly beans, whose taste has not been affected by age ^_^ (oh, shut up, you know you'd have eaten them too.) about 53 kabillion rent playbills. seriously, what did i think i was going to do with these? i wonder if i could sell them on ebay? *ponders*

oooh, some old logo drawings! logo! yay! check these out:





sadly, this continues to be the pinnacle of my artistic ability.

this one is more puzzling... as i recall, it was a japanese class... yet apparently they taught us how to write "capital city of china"...so.. was i a moron who wrote "china" instead of "japan"? or did the teacher of the class have weird priorities? (talia?)



(by the way, these are dated 1992, which would make me 7. yeep.)

intriguing. anyhow, i'm going to go.. shove all this stuff back into a drawer...

trina: superman looks pretty dumb next to batman
renata: very.
renata: oh. the rest of that sentence was supposed to be "tommy lee jones"
trina: so the black man is evil?
renata: well, when he's black, he's good
renata: it's only when he's tommy lee jones that he's evil
trina: okay, i can deal with that
renata: yeah
trina: i got the coolest garbage bags

listening to: idina menzel, all hail the queen

i just went biking and i'm sooo gross and sweatylike. ew. and there's a whooole box of krispy kreme donuts downstairs and i want one but i'm not hungry at all. so i'm just like.. sitting here waiting to be hungry so i can eat one. lol.

i've had winamp on random for awhile, so i think i'm going to steal a page from the book of *nina* and keep a list of the amusing randomity ^_^

idina menzel - all hail the queen (live)
matt caplan - wither (live)
barenaked ladies - god rest ye merry gentlemen (it's so disconcerting to listen to christmas music in august...)
cake - short skirt, long jacket
tori - song for eric
beauty and the beast - belle
tori - cornflake girl (live)
s club 7 - bring it all back
pajama party - can't live without it
soul coughing - super bonbon
mst3k - 1998 academy of robots choice awards special
tori - assholes are cheap today

anyway. so this morning we went to the museum of lithuanian history. so random. but it was actually really interesting. i mean before this morning the only thing i knew about lithuania was that they speak lithuanian and it's over in europe someplace. and now... i know.. um... some other things. *nod*

oh, and freaks was really interesting. it turned out to be closing night, which was cool. it was in one of those very-chicago-tiny-little-theatres... i think it maaybe held 60 people. but yeah, it was cool. it cut back and forth between the past in a freakshow, and the present (ish) with the main character in a mental home.. and he ranted about freaks in general. and yeah, i liked it. of course, my oh-so-anal-retentive grandfather's comments on the show were "you know, i bet there were an illegal amount of people in that room" and "i don't think they should call it a circus." *blink* riiiight then.

it's dark in my room. but the light switch is alllll the way over there. *gestures to show how far away it is* i'll wait until i get hungry and go get a donut, and i'll turn the light on on my way back in my room! it'll kill two birds with one stone! *swivel* no, actually, i'm going to go turn it on now. so much for my inspired laziness. *sigh*

eew, thetard wants to do footloose for the musical. *shudder* i object strongly to footloose. i'd rather do friggen cinderella than footloose. *consider* well, maybe not. but i view the two with equal distaste.

incidentally, i have a confession to make... i heart steve irwin. i have a deep desire to go see the crocodile hunter movie. *sigh* i think it's mostly his accent. and i love his boundless enthusiasm. like how he's practically orgasmic when he finds a rusty monitor. aww. he's so cute. anywho. i'm... just going to publish this.. and yes.

*long pause* where was i...? oh. greek food. so anyway, yeah, i managed to burn my thumb pretty bad on the saganaki (yeah, who'd imagine that flaming cheese would be so hot? *sniff*) but i was too embarrassed to admit it so the whole evening i kept clandestinely sticking my thumb in my water glass. yeah, i'm a nerd.

so yeah. we went to a flea market today... i bought a present for megan for 10 cents ^_^ aand a whole book of lion king postcards for 50 cents! yay!

listening to: moulin rouge, like a virgin [note: originally typed "virginia"]

i had this weeeeird dream last night... well, let me back up... i couldn't sleep, so i grabbed dream country (sandman III) and started to re-read it [i heart "a midsummer night's dream" SO much]... and then i did finally fall asleep, and i dreamed that priscellie and i were driving someplace, but i don't remember why or where anymore... anyway, so then my tire goes flat. so i pull over to the side of the road, and there's flailing and such, but luckily the first car that drives by pulls over to help. yay! so we [priscellie and i] walk over to the guy and at the same time we both realize he looks really familiar... we sort of glance at each other to confirm it... and then we both come to the really happy realization that the guy in the car is neil gaiman. lol. [and he had an accent in my dream too!] so, he helps us change the tire, and we thank him, and then i'm like "erm... are you.. nail gaiman?" and he laughed and said yes.. so then i think we both started gushing for a bit ^_^ and then i woke up... it was about 5am, so i wrote myself a note about the dream so as not to forget it, and then i rolled over and went back to sleep.

and then i dreamed that i was telling rob [why do i keep dreaming about rob?? well, okay, 2 dreams... but still!] all about priscellie and my's neil adventure, and then when i got to the end of the story i was like "wait, actually, i think that was a dream... i don't think it really happened..." and rob laughed at me >_<

listening to: tori, cornflake girl

random amusing quote: "i'm glad i'm not a shark.."
"yeah... but at least they're really pointy!"

hi, i'm renata and i'm really sweaty. ew. trina stood me up for kickboxing *sniffle* so it was just me and this other girl (lee or ling or leah or something...) and the instructor, and this random guy who was also instructing. *blink* sooo, dawn (one of the non-bitchy instructors! yay!) is like "since there's only 2 of you, let's do power!" nooo.... but it was actually a lot of fun. and the random guy actually helped me suck less instead of just letting me know i suck! yaay! but yeah.. and like... they keep the boxing side of the place at 80 degrees. sooo hot. the karate side is so much cooler. literally. *frowl*

anywho, so i go back out to my car and realize that it smells like rancid milk. ew. since i had to make a wal-mart run anyhow for my mom, i added "buy air freshener" to my mental list of things to do and AHHH there's a LADYBUG on my SPEAKER... AHH it just flew onto the MONITOR... *flail* oh dear... i tried to flick it away but now it's just crawling around on my desk... well... as long as i can't see it.. or feel it... *blink*

anyway.. so air freshener. i almost got this really cool shiny moon air freshener, but then i realized it smelled worse than rancid milk. so i got an aromatherapy stress-relief one, which relieved my stress over the fact that my car smelled bad. and then i decided that a popsicle would vastly improve the quality of my life. *nod* so i bought a box of these starbucks java fudge popsicles... they are the world's greatest food on a stick. i swear. it's like.. a fudgsicle.. dipped in frappucino and frozen.. and... *drools* soooo good. seriously, i'm all homer simpsony just thinking about them.

oooh, exciting quiz ^_^





Which Ani DiFranco Album Are You?

Brought to you by Tracie


You are little plastic castle. You're somewhat of an upbeat little creature. Sure, you have your moments of depression and loneliness, but in the end you always know you have your friends to back you up. And, that is something you've been blessed with: good friends.

i love lpc! oh god, i'm waaay too obsessed with tori... i just noticed that the person who made the quiz's livejournal name is "mentalyoga" so i immediately started mentally singing "well hey do you do judo when they surround you? a little mental yoga and they disappear..." (from "purple people" ^_^) and i didn't even realize what i was doing for a second... *sigh*

listening to: tori, icicle

hmmm...

(so yeah, i'm bored and taking emode tests... *sigh*)

An Aquarius!
It's sooo you!

The planets are very complex. Maybe your astrologer will disagree, and maybe a few tendencies will vary, but overall you're an AQUARIUS. As an air sign, you're a great communicator and an independent thinker. Besides which, you've got an incredibly popular side -- people can't resist that inviting personality and your altruistic ways. You are ambitious and creative, but you also have a tendency to be inflexible when it comes to your views. Although you may be a great and giving friend, you tend to shy away from romantic relationships. Your sign -- the water-bearer -- indicates that you give off a special energy that others receive as a gift. You are definitely a people person, and you want everyone to be happy. You also have an analytical edge that comes out in your progressive thinking. In addition to all of these redeeming qualities, you are most commonly known for being the friendliest sign in the zodiac.

*blink* i don't think i'm that friendly... am i? i always thought i was sort of an unintentional (well, usually) bitch. (for the record, i'm really a gemini/cancer cusp... but i think i lean more towards gemini... split personality and all ^_^)

bleah.
