|10:14 pm - hey look, i'm back on lj!|
I guess we'll see how long this lasts. I haven't looked at my friends page yet. Does anyone still read these? Here's a bunch of random things, in list form:
-William H. Macy shovels well. He shovels VERY well
-SPOON on NEW YEAR'S EVE
-TOTALLY obsessed with MIA and Black Kids lately.
-Finally got signed up for a radio show for this year. I'll be on Mondays at midnight, just like last year. There's only one Monday left before break, so I'll probably just wait and start doing it second semester
-Last night Steve was talking to me about how he might shave his head over break and freak everyone out when he came back. Then later, he said he was going to take a shower, but actually went and cut his hair real short! Awesome!
-Don't freeze cream cheese. Takes forever to thaw, and if you try to eat it too soon, it's got a really gross texture. I want to make dip!
-I can definitely see how MIA would be really annoying to a lot of people. Fortunately, I can't get enough.
-Listening to MIA really makes me want Indian food
-I know, she's Sri Lankan, but it just makes me want Indian food anyway, ok?
-Hahaha Steve just walked by and was dancing. He doesn't really seem like the type to like MIA, but he's totally dancing right now
-Wizard People, Dear Reader is just about the funniest thing I've ever seen, I think. I plan to try and get a bunch of people together over break to watch that, if anyone is interested.
EDIT: I am reposting this entry, having recently changed my settings to let people on facebook know that I've made an entry on lj.

|05:30 pm - my moment of yuletide empathy|
In the spirit of Christmas (which I LOVE) I just wanna say that I actually feel pretty sorry for Bush right now. Bear in mind, please, that there are many ways to feel sorry. One way is the one where you feel sorry for someone who you know did all they could to avoid something and yet it still happened and it sucks because it's not the least bit their fault.
A much more applicable way to feel sorry for someone is the way in which you feel bad because even though they probably could have done a lot of things better/differently, it still sucks that they have to deal with the things they do. Anyway, my point is just that I feel bad for Bush right now cause he's got a lot to think about this Christmas. Obviously he had quite a long time to start listening to other people about Iraq, and yes, if he had done so then it's possible that there would be a lot less crisis and bloodshed on his mind these days, but I still feel bad for the guy.
That said, I'm glad to see that there will start to be some changes 'round here. I mean there. Whatever.

|03:31 am - college news|
Ok so the college news is this:
-i am at college and halfway through my first course, religions of the world. go block plan!!!
-feelings are boring, kissing is awesome
-"SexyBack" is the official song of my freshman class
-my laptop's memory is somehow full already. wtf???
-i will be co-hosting a radio show every thursday night on 89.7 KRNL radio. what will we play? you'll just have to listen in, sir! i'll put a link to the stream on here later
-more or less everyone here is awesome
-last week i had a slumber party
-having access to the radio station's music library is friggin' sweet
-today was the first orchestra rehearsal. i am 3rd chair viola out of 6. i think that's pretty good since i'm the only new violist in the section
-tomorrow night my roommate is going off campus. this means that i will be able to sleep naked for once (that has been the toughest change in college life). I'm also gonna turn on both of our fans and have the windows wide open so i can use all of my blankets. i love being cozy.
-there is a sweet coffee shop in town with lots of cool teas
-today in my school mailbox i got a random, anonymous card that says "stand back, your coolness is blowing me away." Weird.
-this weekend i am going to see Barack Obama. Sweet.
That being said, I MISS ALL YALL! I hope everyone is having a good year so far.
