Whew. Darned if that weren't a pretty crazy past couple of days. Mostly it consisted of bunches of running around for the Jars of Clay concert. I helped out a lot with Caleb's running around, making backstage passes and setting up stage...it was a lot of fun. We even got to eat in the Green Room after Jars finished, and let me tell you--they had some reaaaally good cheesecake. It was a long night, I must say. One cool thing is that because they had to fly Jars in from Nova Scotia, they didn't have most of their equiptment. This is good because they ended up borrowing drums from Drew (Gunsmoke Dialogue's drummer) and an amp from Cameron. They even put all new heads on Drew's drums and signed them and everything. We were pretty happy about that.

So I'm feeling much better than when I last posted, except that I'm still just as busy. I'm now pretty much in charge of re-designing the Student Life section of the Liberty website. Which is going to be a pretty big responsibility, but I'm happy about it. It should give me some extra hours and I'm excited to make the page look better (it's pretty sad right now).

At the moment I'm (finally) burning more of my cd's on to Caleb's laptop. It's taking awhile because I have a lot of mix cds that I have to go through and individually name each song...good thing I'm working. Meaning, getting paid to do this. I love my job. Well, I also hate my job when the clubhouse is filled with freshman watching the Yankees. Blech. I've discovered that I just really don't like sports. I can handle a hockey game now and then for about 15 minutes, but beyond that...nope. Can't do it.

I'm lucky my boyfriend feels pretty much the same way. Speaking of boyfriends, Gunsmoke Dialogue is playing a show tomorrow night: four bands for four bucks, the Candler's Mountain Drowsy Poet. I'm not sure on the time, but I think it starts around seven or so. Cameron should have the details. You should go, it will be a good show.

I might as well wrap it up, I should probably look like I'm doing...well, something. I'm sure I can figure it out. Hasta!


Day 6 of Being Sick. I was being so annoying with my coughing and sniffing last night that Cameron told me, "Seriously, you need to go buy some Sudafed or something! Geez!"

My sad reply?
"Sudafed? Thad cosds mondey! I can'd buy medicine! I'll get betder in a couple days. Yeah. I will." [This is the dialect of a person who is slightly stuffed up but not quite enough so that all of her T's turn into D's. Just some.]

So here I am, still with my sad cold and with a definite longing for a raspberry mocha. Which I think I am just going to break down and buy.

We didn't have my Gourmet Cooking class today. Which was nice, but bad too because I was looking forward to eating food. A definite benefit of a cooking class that occurs around lunchtime is that you can usually fill up at least your lunch-food quota during class. So instead I went to the library and read a graphic design book and listened to Jack Johnson.

Yesterday I got Sabrina Ward Harrison's third book in the mail. It's just as beautifully lush and enjoyable as the first. I've already halfway devoured it, and it makes me want to go to the Art Box downtown and buy paints.

I'm letting my friend Amber steal this computer, since the lab is way too small for its student population. Oh, and link of the day: midwest is best. Bad site design, but beautiful content. Enjoy!


It's been quite a while, no? I apologize. I have been, for lack of a better word, incapacitated. In a time sense, at least. I was in Baltimore last Saturday (art museum and the like, I'll post pictures later), I had to write a paper this week, I made a flier for open mic and two brochures for a friend of mine that amounted to at least 30 or so hours in the computer lab. After some of which, at 2am in the morning, I left the lab to discover that I had locked my keys in my car. Oh yes. This resulted in an ordeal in which 1) I now loathe the LUPD and their selfish ways 2) I'm really glad I have a boyfriend who loves me enough to come pick me up at 2:30 in the morning 3) I had to miss my morning class because my apartment (containing my books and clothes and such) was locked, unopenable since my key was on my keychain...in my car's ignition 4) I know the operators at the AAA call center much better than I'd care to. Thankfully, that's all over with, and after I stop venting into this keyboard, I'll finish up my paper, turn it in next class, and then be solidly done with all that's needed doing this week.

I might even go watch a movie.

It doesn't help that I feel terrible right now--I'm being haunted by the whole throat, nose, headcold ordeal. It's one of those days where I wish I could collapse in the middle of the floor, legs flung out, arms outstretched on either side, head limply falling to the left floor tiles. And then I would just lay there, until one of the computer lab drones came and told me that what I was doing wasn't permissible, a fire hazard, etc. They'd be lucky that it's a nasty tiled floor, for if it was carpeted in here I would never leave. Hypothetically. Of course.

My flash-learning has taken a bit of a backseat to all of the craziness this week, but I'm working on getting back to speed. I want so badly to transform this site into a much cooler one with all the lovely flash excitement. I'm just not inspired by a theme as of yet.

Alright, enough of me. My paper awaits, and impatiently at that. Enjoy your fridays and do some sitting around. It's good for you.
