Holiday…Celebrate?

My holiday is not actually finished, but my brain is swimming right now, so I thought I’d expel some brain dross. Monday, I got out of school early because my night class was cancelled. So I sat down to work on my research. It was slow going until about 9:30. Then I fell asleep. A [...]

Paper Writing

I am still writing papers. Yes I am. I’ve been working quite diligently as of late, but I notice that the more I do work, the more I want to say, so it takes just as long as if I were distracted; it’s just a better end product. I am stressing, though, for I have [...]

First Real Snow

I awoke this morning to find- well, that my entire leg was numb and I had to walk like Frankenstein- but also that snow had actually accumulated on the ground. It’s quite pretty on the first snow, when it’s still white.

Lunachicks – FDS These gals rock like the Babes, but with more candy and beer. I saw Lunachicks in college (1996) when they opened for NOFX. Of course, we went for the ‘Chicks. My roomie and I used to always sing “FDS”, and I was very proficient in bleeping every swear word because I played [...]

Babes in Toyland – Jungle Train I dig this song so much! These girls are awesome! I’d use the word “core” but I’m not sure that term translates beyond the time/place when/where I first bought this album. I used this term c.1992-1996, often refering to things that were both awesome and badass. The urban dictionary [...]

Cultural Deviations: Food

I live in Wisconsin. I have done so all of my life except for my stint as an undergraduate in Boston. So why don’t I like bratwurst? More importantly, why am I obsessed with crab cakes and grits? Oh, and blintzes. And lox on a bagel with cream cheese.

What Does My Birth Date Mean?

Your Birthdate: November 7 You are an island. You don’t need anyone else to make you happy. And though you see yourself as a loner, people are drawn to you. Deep and sensitive, you tend to impress others with your insights. You also tend to be psychic – so listen to that inner voice! Your [...]

The Four Lads – Istanbul (Not Constantinople) I was working on my paper about Hagia Sophia today and found this song to be quite appropriate. Since the file is long gone, here is a video.

Tears for Fears – Head Over Heels Today’s song is special, because I’m including the music video. Recently I got into a conversation about the Music Man. I think the conversation probably branched off from a conversation about Robert Preston, because he’s fabulous, and I’m a huge Victor Victoria fan (oh, yeah, and The Last [...]

Party Time!

I had a get together on Saturday. It was gobs of fun. Originally planned as a candle party, it expanded beyond the limits of girly in-home sales parties. We played SceneIt, Scrabble and SoulCaliber2. We chatted and such, because we are adults now. (Scary) We partook of Chinese (which made me sick as a dog [...]

Bad Kid

I’ve done it again. It’s 5pm. I didn’t have class today, and yet I have no homework done. At least this time I can say I did the laundry, but laundry is supposed to be one of those chores you can do while you do other things. Someone needs to lock me up with only [...]
