Another short post on my current state of annoyed-ness

There's a few things bothering me right now. Two have to do with my bathroom, the other is non-bathroom related.

Light lag: the light in my bathroom does not turn on at the same moment as you flip the switch. It waits approximately three seconds before actually illuminating the room. This is slightly aggravating the first time it happens, and when it's been going on for several months, it really can get on one's nerves. However, I'd almost rather have the light off altogether, because when it's on, I can see the minute details of my shower curtain, which is the other thing that bothers me. My shower curtain is an otherwise lovely and happy looking map of the world, with one irksome flaw: no rivers. Alright, I know it's just a shower curtain, and it isn't supposed to be an exhaustive study of our world's geography, but come on! At least put in the Nile and the Amazon. Perhaps the Mississippi? Also the name of Brasilia is in a larger font than Hawaii.

My other annoyance is that about a week ago, for some reason my laptop decided it no longer wanted to load any pages with the word "blogspot" in the url. Seriously uncool. I can't figure out why it is so against the free communication of thought and also pictures; I tried clearing my history and my cache and all kinds of other things that I sort of understand, but it still refuses to cooperate. I think I need to shut down my computer for many days to give it time to think about the annoyance it has caused me. After which thought it will obviously see the folly in omitting an entire server's worth of blogs, and apologize profusely.

Arg, Arg and Double Argh!

1. My hair, upon exiting the pool around 7:30 in the evening, magically transformed itself into something curly and pretty, without me having to so much as brush it. Naturally this happens when I stay in and do nothing all evening. Beautiful hair, wasted!

2. Um, I have to work tomorrow? And the next day too?

3. (this one's the double arg) The amazingly perfect and nice house that my friend and I fell in love with, that we were going to rent and share with maybe four other girls and have a fun house of people, cannot be rented by us at this time. Why? Because we couldn't find another four girls to share it with, and the two of us can't swing the $1000 per month for much longer than two months by ourselves. I now need to find a new place, and nothing will be as wonderfully spacious and friendly as that house.

Total Awesomeness

Alright, so I'm pretty sure I'm the last person on earth to know about this amazingly wonderfully great video. Just in case I'm not the last, though, I'll pass it along to youse guys.

(Directions, for the unsavvy: Wait till the whole thing loads before you play it so you don't get weird lag and skips. Play; enjoy, giggle. Repeat indefinitely.)

Violasaint, World Traveller

As you can clearly see from this,
and this,

I am a west side type of girl. I have a strange fascination with the middle states, like Ohio, and Illinois and Indiana, and all those places that I know must be there, but as yet they are just empty holes in my experience of the world. Once I get enough money saved up, I'm going to try and do some travelling, both to the rest of this continent, and also to Europe. Beyond that, I have vague hopes of someday seeing like Tokyo and Hong Kong, and Mexico City, and some chunks of Africa maybe?

If I was a dog, but I was counting my age in people years, I think I'd be three.

Festivities included a sumtuous dinner of fondue, salad, fondue, and fondue. Fondue you want some more? Fondue you think I'm crazy? That was a ton of cheese and meat; I fondue not need any more food as long as I live!

You may ask, "how does it feel to be another year older?"
I may answer, "a lot cheesier."

To be perfectly honest, I don't feel this old. At least, I don't feel like a responsible adult- I still don't know what in the world I want to be when I grow up, and for goodness sake, I'm still working in fast food. Although today I didn't work, and wisely spent the day watching America's Next Top Model as a reward for working out for half an hour while watching Chariots of Fire.

I think I need to get myself a hobby.
