"I have a funny story to tell you. Actually, first, someone just said awl. hahaha. Okay, the story: Yesterday at work someone who was giving an orientation presentation to us was asking where we were from. When I said Monroe, he goes, 'Oh, so you're rich.'"

i don't know when i became a person insecure about my own style. somewhere around freshman year, but then i was cured in ireland, and it came back last year. weird. so days it's fine, but usually not when i am going on a date or buying something considered stylish. otherwise, i'm happy left at my own devices.
also, my hair is now the length of j'little's. i put it in a ponytail today and it was so bouncy. usually i hate this length on me, but it is easy to put in a bun and will be easier to straighten (cause i do that so often?). and...yah. whatever. many less dreads will form. hahaha. i celebrated the bounciness by moving my head back and forth and saying bouncy bouncy bouncy. my mom did not appreciate this.
i'm felt like myself for the first time since i got home. it came in flashes...but better than nothing.

drog went to the speedway today with malface. this is what he had to say.
"i had some guy ask me where something was in the speedway. i laughed inside, like i know where shit is! he had a gold tooth. also some guy put his arm around me. i was not pleased. i indicated such by calling him "buddy" multiple times"
i don't know why this was so funny to me.

elizabeth edwards on the daily show is being cool. i still will probably not read her book, but...props anyway.
i get acne at the weirdest times.
mocha is so good at telling time! she has been waiting for my mom to come home for like...four hours. at the door. my mom is not coming home until sunday. i wonder when mocha will figure this out.

JFK, Sco, Drog and I crashed Spreadies and Casey's party tonight. We were being loud with gin on a Thursday. Tell me what is wrong with this picture, someone.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button made me think of Mike. I think I decided I need to stop trying to change whatever the heck we were, stop trying to dislike him over it and start to embrace him as shaping who I am. He did. I wish he wouldn't be so... distant, but there is little that can be done about this.
Green Day is not a good band. East Jesus Nowhere is a great song, though. Actually, now that I think of it (stop me if it's too heinous), I think I might actually LIKE Green Day. (YIKES!)
Is it weird that I find comfort in my foot smell? I don't like it. It's just comforting. Like, "Oh yea. Things are still normal. My feet still smell like dog shit."
Oh yea, the real world does not exist!

There was this love discussion earlier that I totally missed out on. However, I (as always) have my own two cents to add. Even though Sco spurred the discussion based on the intangible qualities of love, I think that the love we dinos have is the most tangible sort of love on the market. I always wonder why romantic love relationships can't be more like friendships. We put up with a lot more shit, expect a whole lot less and are more willing to compromise when it comes to our friends. I guess it's "just not that deep". Perhaps, however, this love model is better than whatever it is we think of when we think of romantic love. All the best relationships (and I mean moms & dads and such) seem to extract this friend-love in order to sustain success, don't you think? Perhaps this romantic love thing is all just infatuation, chemical transaction and a general figment of the imagination. Maybe dino love is the only real sort of love. If this is the case, I hope that we can all someday find another dino to add to the family. If he's not dino material, ladies, something's missing!
I miss Laura. I keep thinking it is her coming down the stairs, but it's not! It's slowly settling in that she is gone. But, L. Flynn, you would be proud of how clean our house is! Haha.
Jenna and I had 1/2 of the Pinstripes over last night. They were legit. I drove one to the bus stop at 4AM when it was pouring down rain. I think it maybe messed up my car. So much street flooding.
One word: BALLER.
I think I am the best Billie Joe this Pink House has ever seen.
I promise not to be so lame in the future. AKA I will blog more often.

my itouch is awesome. i downloaded a podcast this morning that was video and i watched it on my flight to baltimore. woord.
i wonder if grades have been sent home yet.
on my first flight (i'm flying southwest so there is no assigned seating) i was the last person to get on the plane cause i was e-mailing. and there were three seats on both sides of the isle, so everyone just leaves the middle seat open because in our culture we have a phobia of other people for some reason. anyway, i was like poo i'm going to have to sit in the back! lame. i shouldn't have e-mailed so much!! but there was a seat in the forth row (a window seat even!! my favorite) next to this older dude and i don't know why no one sat next to him cause he was cool. he was doing a crossword and that prompted me to do one too! yesh. and he even let me go out of the plane before him. all those people that walked by him really didn't know what was up.
i hate it when people have my alarm as their ringtone cause it just makes me hella jump every time.
baltimore is sunny right now. the sweet thing about airporsts is they have a lot of windows. i would like a room that is windows on three sides. although, my room with windows on two sides was cool. i don't understand people who keep the blinds closed all the time. i really really like natural light.
why are those half-sneakers still on the market? clog seakers. what the truck.
i just called my house to make sure someone would pick me up when i land and both my parents answered the phone. i love/hate when they do that cause it is hilarious but also corny/weird.
i have had onion breath for like...many moons.
i had a bunch of celery at buffalo wild wings the other day...i think i might be over my problem with that.
i can see someone with ryan's sneakers! aieeee! (why are those still allowed to be sold?)
what did people do in airports before cell phones?
i always want to see people i know in airports, but it hardly ever happens. only once. ooh...actually twice. once time was pamela in detroit and the other time was this kid from my high school on a flight to indianapolis (he goes to iu).
it's always so sweet to see people with red sox hats on. feels like home.
thin mints are my favorite girl scout cookie.
i don't think airplane neck pillows look very comfortable.
-Jenna: I can appreciate your love of music as my love for music, from the minute details of composition to the way the bass beats in my sternum, to the way the words seem to say things that can change you...music is the shit
-Also to Jenna: i think it's good to have a mix of serious and retarded. you can't be either all the time because if you had one but not the other you could never appreciate either one of them
-Katie: You are hilarious all the time. Why are you not here. I miss you
-To all: I love and would do anything for all of you, no questions asked. I'd defend you until I was blue in the face, which hasn't ever happened to me before, but I'm assuming it takes a really, really long time to turn blue.
-Also, I have multiple bullets points for multiple comments which is so not as cool as having an arbitrary one bullet point for one comment, but oh well, I never tried to be as cool as Jenner because that's just unreasonable and altogether unattainable for me :)

longview203: oh hi
longview203: sorry i was in the shower
longview203: i know, not something you're familiar with
longview203: let me explain, there is a giant tub and next to it is is a spout with rushing hot water out onto whoever is standing under it
longview203: most people use this bar thing called SOAP, somep people use shower gel though, i know, it can get pretty complicated
longview203: let me know if you need me to slow down
-i know nothing of love...at least not btwn me and some guy. however, i know what general love is. and i love everyone on this blog to death legit. like, i would take a bullet for any of my dinos. i love you guys so much. my mom is like, so happy i have such good friends, and i love love love how my friends will defend me, even to my mom. love it. i actually was like blah to whatever love posts were written cuz i was like 'ok this shit is too serious.' haha...ok. basically, i love my sisters...my dinos. period. i pretty much love music more than anything right now. i want to lock myself in a room and listen to it all the time. no shit. im so weird about music that i feel like i would lose friends if i told ppl the extent of how much i loved it. ok im done. night.
i love how that was a bullet point...but it was only one bullet point. yesh.

i like being serious and funny at the same time too. i was the first person my best friend from home really confided in. and she says that's because we could have a serious conversation but be laughing the whole time. and that is pretty sweet. and that is mostly how it is with you kids. when we went through shit this semester, we laughed too. t's like...you can make serious funny, but still not take away from ther serious. i have to have a serious conversation with my parents when i get home and i wish it could be funny too, but i know it won't.
i thought i was in love once, but now that i fell in love again, i don't think it was love the first time. i really feel that it was pseudolove. it was just the strongest i ever felt about someone at that point. but i think different people have different levels of love. like, what i feel is love it not necessarily what someone else feels is love. one time when i was little i asked my mom how i knew what a cramp felt like and how everyone knew that everyone felt the same pain when they said they had a cramp. and i think it's like that.
maybe there should be symptoms for love? like...that's how you tell someone is depressed, no? you have x of the amount of symptoms. i suppose no one feels the need to make love that objective, and i don't think it should be, but i'm just saying.
if someone falls out of love with you, but you still love them, how do you fall out of love? like, is it just because they hurt you, and so then you're just done?
i don't really like that bible quote from first corinthians because it is so overused, but i do appreciate it. i believe that love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves. i don't know if love never fails. maybe not - marriages and relationships just end when people fall out of love? is falling out of love the same as love failing? iiiii don't know.
there is this john denver song (haha...i know john denver is just funny). anyway, the first time i heard it this dude was playing it acoustic on a guitar and it was sweet, one of those perfect moments you look back on. but the really version is like...opera style. anyway, i really like some of the lyrics for some reason.
"perhaps love is like the ocean
full of conflict, full of pain
like a fire when it's cold outside
or thunder when it rains"
i don't know. that makes it sound so...harsh. but i think love isn't this fluffy thing, i think it requires work and patience and...other things. selflessness and stuff.
i think i have more to say, but i can't find it in my brain.
After which spreads said, "no, you have funnel vision"
After which much laughter and merriment ensued.
PS I am straight sober and have been all day. Hard to believe, I know, especially with how stupid this post is, but I swear to ungod that I am completely one hundred percent for real legit not drunk! Haha

p.s.- Didn't your parents or one of them or something help you move into your house last year?
i don't understand why people need their parents to help them move in and out. i have never had this luxury, except when i moved into college the first time. we are all over 18, it isn't that biig of a deal. i especially don't understand how people fit more in tri delta than can fit in thier car. i think these people are just inefficent packers. or stupid. no offense.

i always wonder if people are doing things because they want to do them or they think that they should/it is the right thing to do. i really...mostly do what i want. and if i put effort into something it is because i want to. and if i don't...it's cause i don't. i wonder if everyone did whatever they wanted if the world would be a better or a worse place. like...maybe there would be less self-absorbed people because people wouldn't always be doing things for them because they thought they should, and the self-absorbed people would be like...oh i'm lame, i should change my self-absorbed ways.
i get odd satisfaction out of french braiding my hair, it's pretty sweet.
i want to get drunk but i have to studyyy.
*pledge when i say go down i don't mean on a big black dick.
1. you have to be legit enough to "deal" with living in naptown for an extended period of time to be a swanger. by the way...i think that when people hate naptown that it is such a dumb thing. i mean seriously...where are you going to go and where are you going to afford to live that has the benefits of naptown? (pledge...where would you work?) ooo..."boo indiana"...fuck you. tell me a place in the midwest that is better. ill go there and judge for myself. all i know is that wisconsin is not as cool, basically because it is much colder there...and this wisconsin pride bullshit is...bullshit.
by the way...im listening to this song from some old green day album...paper lantern i think it's called...sounds like american idiot before american idiot...it's basically the song but in a demo version...GD GD!
2. you need a pink floyd tshirt...and so do i. i hear DGs outside of TD...i want to hit them. is that not panhellenic? oh no wait...it doesnt matter. ungreek rules. muahahaha...
3. yeeeesh i get it. muahaha two instead of 2. i feel like el bin lives for that t-shirt.
4. i enjoy when i go somewhere and there is a handle of vodka and then...we take it...because we are poor and homeless. haha...right sco?
5. i wish i had all my fireworks here for the 4th of july. i legit have 50 bucks worth of illegal fireworks from last 4th of july. why is it may here and july there? i know its only like a day ahead in new zealand but i'd like some explanations. im not falling for this BS. haha
6. the piece of seat on your quote wall makes me want to put something physical on my quote wall...what should i put on it? i have no clue...but when i see it i will know that it is meant for the wall.
7. don't fuck with the quote wall or the southside...just don't...
-i like when el bin says flat mate...so foreign. so awesome.
-can i just say that i hazed pledge by putting hella smoke in her mouth twice!?!?! hahahaha...she coughed. it was hilarious.
-blogging is better that tweeting bc you get more than 140 characters to speak your mind. ps. lbin why dont you have a twitter?
-what should i do with my parents tomorrow? (today) they want to do things...what should we do? i think it's odd that i havent seen my mom since new years and im like 'yo mom, whats up?' shouldnt i have missed her more? i am a "sick and twisted individual."
-why am i listening to green day? they must be legit if i'm listening to them. esp american idiot (the album)...if i think it's good...then it is GOOD.
-speaking of green day, jesus of suburbia is so GOOD. ill defend it to the death...it's good shit! god damn. i am so drunk that i thought the song ended at 5 min 24 sec. what was i thinking? haha geeeez. "o therapy can you please feel a void?" gah im an asshole.
-i love how the last stall in the td bathroom with the pledge quotes is SO popular that there wasnt TP before but now there is...basically bc someone took it in there from another stall...basically bc they wanted to read the epic pledgified toilet times.
-i wish i could tweet whenever i wanted to...cuz there would be some legit tweets happening...i wish i could remmeber them all! grrr...(el bin get a damn twitter. NOW!)
-gah longest blog ever. boo.
