so, here i am, trying to do my homework, and i'm not sure of what's keeping me from it, exactly. is it the slightly outdated version of internet explorer having trouble with command line searches in oclc??? or is it oclc and the late hour of the night??? is there something wrong with my computer??? it was working just two weeks ago when we had to do that dewey assignment... i've been trying, though, which is better than i did earlier today, when i was:|
a) crocheting a hat for tori--it's cute and russian-looking! (but not fur.)
b) eating cheese wontons and kiwi at china star buffet while skipping class
c) kicking the asses of mac, clark, and andrew in tetris
d) playing that star wars game and occasionally winning
e) playing burnout 3
f) sleeping in, having a weird dream about walking uphill behind a lorry, then seeing it stall out and start rolling backwards towards me, then stepping out of the way and watching it roll slowly down
g) reading about making mosaics, planning bathroom floor
h) making yakisoba for lunch
i) writing long overdue thank you notes for silver ice cream scoops and food coupons
or j) ALL OF THE ABOVE
my choices go through j, which is one letter better than the fourth alphabet repetition in one of mac's sixty-some email addresses, if i remember correctly.
while waiting for the others to meet us at the chinese buffet, joey and i talked a bit about the schiavo situation. he and i have slightly different opinions, and i'd like to make a record here (that he is welcome to dispute if i misheard) of the fact that joey wants his feeding tube taken out. i, on the other hand, would rather keep my feeding tube if possible, on the off-chance of a miracle occurring. however, if i remain in a vegetative state for more than seven years, joey should feel free to marry some non-vegetative chick if he's so inclined. now that i'm dwelling on it some more (and probably thanks to the particular hour of the morning), i'm thinking, "okay, if i went to sleep tonight and didn't wake up for fifteen years or so.... why not make it a thousand so i can live in new new york with fry and leela and the gang! yeah! that's the ticket!"
the party will be in new orleans this weekend--to grandmother's house we go!
when i have more time, i'll post the books i've read so far this year. i'm at least halfway through the 2005 fifty book challenge, thanks to my young adult resources class! maybe when the semester's over... and speaking of the semester's looming end, i need to purchase my plane ticket to pittsburgh. i've been waffling over whether i should buy one or two--they're somewhat expensive, and the main reason for joey to go originally was to look at potential places to live if we were considering moving up there, but that seems to be out of the question, so now it might be prudent for me to go alone, but then i think about how hard it's going to be to leave tori, and i think, well, if i buy two tickets, at least joey will have a ticket in case i decide to take tori after all and i need him there to watch her while i'm in class, or, joey and i will have a fun little weekend together if she stays here (which really would be better for her, i think--no gross airports and no schedule flip-flops)... i think i'll just let joey decide (but we do have to buy the ticket(s) before we go to new orleans!).
anyway. goodnight!!! sweet dreams--of the future!!!!!
