We interrupt your regularly scheduled lack-of-posting to bring you this breaking news update: A few people have recently noted that they have been removed from my LJ friends page. The management would like to reassure the denizens of LiveJournal that being removed from my friends list does not mean that I hate you. It does… Continue reading on the subject of livejournal friends pages
I’ve got a date!
That might sound like a good thing, except it’s actually the date when I’ll retake the PhD Qualifier. May 17-18 (a monday) is the day. I’ve got a wedding in Philadelphia the previous weekend (May 8). Right. I’ve managed to get some studying done almost every sunday this year. I should be OK, right? Right?
On my way to campus yesterday (for a full day of heavy, exercised-related lifting; and intense, ground-breaking research), I got into an accident. Not a big accident, mind you. It was really just a little fender bender. And, it wasn’t quite a fender bender. At least, my car was fine. The other guy’s car was… Continue reading bent fenders
hamburger helper and my total lack of updates
I’ve tried blaming my lack of updates on any number of things: “writer’s block” comment spam the lunar calendar being “busy” But then, my dinner presented me with more plausible reasoning. My dinner you say? I got home today, and thought “hamburger helper!” This is partially because their cheesy enchilada is tasty, but mostly because… Continue reading hamburger helper and my total lack of updates
This is late. It is, unsurprisingly, also late. It’s a new year now. It’s two thousand and five. It’s twenty-six years after I was born. It’s (less than) four years since September 2001. It’s (less than) one year since November 2004. It is, in fact, nine days since 1 January 2005. It is, precisely: nine… Continue reading late entries
a little bad, a whole lotta good
I’ve been trying to get back into the swing of things since the election, and it’s been tough. I’m behind on the news, and having trouble catching up. I know what I want to do next, it’s just a matter of making some phonecalls, budgetting time, and getting involved. That’s not really the breaking news,… Continue reading a little bad, a whole lotta good
if i don’t laugh i’ll cry
I can’t sleep again. I’ve also, again, been following the news with an almost hawk-like intensity. It varies by week — some, I’ll stay far away. Others, I’ll be glued to it like a junky. Except, I think, that election news may be worse for your health. I don’t like where this country is headed,… Continue reading if i don’t laugh i’ll cry
A few weeks ago, I picked up some flannel sheets at Bed Bath & Beyond on clearance ($25!). It was a total impulse buy (shutup. There’s nothing wrong with impulse buys at BB&B). I put them on my bed yesterday, and they’re absolutely wonderful. I lost part of my homework assignment and had to redo… Continue reading little things
The Anti-Abortion Bus
I saw this on campus recently:
I went to the law school today to donate blood. It’s been a bit more than a year since the last time I went. I had been to India recently, and there is, they tell me a chance I might have malaria. If I don’t develop signs of malaria in the next year, I’m allowed… Continue reading Indefinite Deferral
