Wow, what a summer. After I get back from work tonight (and before I leave for my long diving weekend in Key West!) I'll post something substantial.

Would anyone be interested in going to Bonnaroo with me? Roadtrip to Tennessee for an amazing 4-day music and arts festival? I realllly want to go

Time for a half-hearted update!

1. Famous Dave's - After firing four people, three of them bartenders, I picked up some shifts at the bar. Now I serve tables 0 times a week and tend bar 4-5 times a week. This could potentially be a better way to make more money depending on whether or not the higher powers give me a section in the dining room. Tonight I tended bar with Mike, my manager's boyfriend from another store, and we did pretty well. Also, because she thinks he's the best bartender ever, she gave the saturday night bar it's section in the dining room back! As a result, we made 200% more than we usually make. I worked a wednesday shift and left with $160, a slow friday and made $150, and another $100 for approximately 4 hours of work tonight. I can't complain. The only problem is time management- I need more time to study, but I need money to live in my apartment, so balancing the time spent at work with time I should have studied is a tough opportunity cost.

2. My apartment - Although my housemates are really cool girls, I can't wait to move into my room at baby prosper next semester. I'll actually have room for a desk, believe it or not! And other assorted furnitures! I can't wait. I live in the corner of a room right now with one free-standing closet. And a shelf. I ran out of room for my stuff, and I didn't even bring much from home. Oh well, next semester will be better. I can actually live in more than a space bigger than my bed!

I actually forgot everything I wanted to say/update, so once I remember I'll edit the post.

I need to make an update, but I really don't have the energy to write out a coherent entry. I'll just casually put this out there: I rode a bus for 2.5 hours today and went a total distance of one mile before I decided to walk home during the ice storm. Missed my fitness classes and lost out on some serious study time. Didn't make me very happy. Also, I got iced in the face for 20 minutes walking down George Street.

I need to rant on how Valentine's Day is becoming increasingly worse each year, but I'll save that until I give this year a last chance

EDIT: Valentine's day is becoming exponentially worse each year.

i like boys that like their mothers
and i have a thing for brothers
but they always wait 'til we're under the covers
to say I'm sure glad we're not lovers

you're so nice and you're so smart
you're such a good friend i have to break your heart
tell you that i love you then I'll tear your world apart
just pretend i didn't tear your world apart

I've got about 5 hours of homework to do, so since I'll be awake anyway, I figured I'd post.

I'm at a terrible crossroads and I need to do something out of my comfort zone soon. I'm definitely not excited for it.

In other news, I woke up in an extremely good mood this morning. The weather supplemented my good mood, and I have a relatively awesome day at work. I basically did no work and made 116. Go Giants!

Classes resume tomorrow. Gotta remember to go to work and request off for the weekend of the 20th, I have Philmun. Also, I think I might go to GTown for my birthday and throw a party at my apartment the following weekend, so you're all invited.

Come with me
My love
To the sea
The sea of love

I wanna tell you
How much
I love you

Gotta love Juno. It all makes so much sense.

Between class blues

So my econ class and bio class are in the same room in Hickman, twenty minutes apart. My econ prof likes to end class twenty minute early, which gives me a large amount of time to get things done, but not enough time to wander around campus in search of food (for non RU students, Hickman is on douglass, not college ave.) I have two viable solutions. 1: bring my math textbook and get some studying done. 2: surf online (and do things like post on here) on my iPod, since I'm way too overprotective of my precious Natalie (my laptop). Since I forgot my math textbook, I've already chosen today's means of wasting time. However, if anyone else has some good ideas, let me know; sitting in this room from 2:15 until 5:15 is nowhere near as fun as it sounds.

My dad was in the ER for a possible herniated disk in his back, but we won't know for sure until the MRI comes back. I'm worried. Also, my great uncle passed away on Tuesday, and I wish I could make it to the funeral, but considering he lives in England a d school just started it's not really viable. Consequently, I feel like a terrible human being. I missed my grandfathers funeral in 1997 and now I'm missing my grandfathers brother's funeral.

Class is starting (thank god.) Bye.

You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch!

Ok I'm sorry Elvis, but this is the best Christmas song ever.

You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch.
You really are a heel.
You're as cuddly as a cactus,
You're as charming as an eel.
Mr. Grinch.

You're a bad banana
With a greasy black peel.

You're a monster, Mr. Grinch.
Your heart's an empty hole.
Your brain is full of spiders,
You've got garlic in your soul.
Mr. Grinch.

I wouldn't touch you, with a
thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole.

You're a vile one, Mr. Grinch.
You have termites in your smile.
You have all the tender sweetness
Of a seasick crocodile.
Mr. Grinch.

Given the choice between the two of you
I'd take the seasick crocodile.

You're a foul one, Mr. Grinch.
You're a nasty, wasty skunk.
Your heart is full of unwashed socks
Your soul is full of gunk.
Mr. Grinch.

The three words that best describe you,
are, and I quote: "Stink. Stank. Stunk."

You're a rotter, Mr. Grinch.
You're the king of sinful sots.
Your heart's a dead tomato splotch
With moldy purple spots,
Mr. Grinch.

Your soul is an appalling dump heap overflowing
with the most disgraceful assortment of deplorable
rubbish imaginable,
Mangled up in tangled up knots.

You nauseate me, Mr. Grinch.
With a nauseous super-naus.
You're a crooked jerky jockey
And you drive a crooked horse.
Mr. Grinch.

You're a three decker sauerkraut and toadstool sandwich
With arsenic sauce!

somewhere only we know

It's only been 3 days at Macy's and I'm already feeling exhausted. Friday I worked 8-2 at Macy's, 5-11 at Dave's. Tonight (Saturday night) I worked 8-2 at Macy's and 5-12 at Dave's. Tomorrow is 3-11 at Dave's. I have two finals on Monday and my last final on Tuesday. I've forgotten what a good night's sleep is like, and my physical fatigue levels are getting ridiculous. I don't even want to tap into the bottle of wine I just opened, and I LOVE white zinfandel.

I need to knit a scarf for my grandmother and wrap Christmas presents, but I'm just too tired. Maybe I'll wake up early and do everything that needs to be done in the morning.


Also, LJ wanted to change the word "zinfandel" into infanticide, which is really intelligent if you think about it. Subliminal messaging?
