Yes, I'm Still Alive

During the past fourteen days, I've done the following:

-written three papers
-spent three hours interviewing my roommates for an upcoming paper
-spent about six hours reading backed-up readings to prepare for a midterm
-taken one midterm
-driven six hours (highway time), plus minimal city driving
-met my roommates' parents and younger sister
-seen the most amazing playground in the state
-eaten ice cream with my parents
-watched two movies (both in class)
-gotten my hair cut about five inches? maybe more, maybe less.
-received 25 emails offering me prescription drugs I don't need
-gotten angry at walgreens for not bypassing my insurance's time hold to get me the one prescription drug I do need
-made three slices of cheesy toast in the toaster oven, my new best friend

You will note that nowhere on that list have I mentioned feeling guilty about not updating my corner of the internet. This is because I've been so busy with these other 13 events (give or take sleeping, eating, and going to class and work) that I pretty much forgot it existed. As a gesture of goodwill, I'll dig through my recently taken photographs and find a good'un for you to view.

Strangely, my bestest friend of all time, Uffish Thought, has crappy taste in music. Let me rephrase that, because it's probably not true. Uffish has divergent taste from me. I have come to realize that when she suggests that I go and listen to something by such and such an artist, 7 and a half times out of ten I will not really enjoy it much at all. I've accepted this strange fact and moved on with my life.

Which is why I was so surprised the other day (ok, a month or two ago) when she told me to listen to Regina Spektor, and I listened to it, and liked it! Even more crazy is that that exact same night, I went to my sister's house to photograph her process from girl wrapped in duct tape to girl with a homemade dress form. Guess what cd was playing when I got there? Yup. How funny how that happens sometimes!

So I'm going to play the game here, and suggest some music to the internet in general, via Mimi Smartypants. Psapp, which awesomely enough, has an arcade game where you are a cat on a renegade mission to collect keyboards.
