i just wanted to say that thai kitchen's bangkok curry soup is nearly as cheap as a ramen noodle instant soup and like, twenty times tastier.

drunken LJ entry, beware [Mar. 9th, 2004|12:05 am]
[music |these are OR scrubs... oh, are they?]

smoking cigarettes inside is quite fun (my excuse is that it's nearly freezing outside).

with my newly renewed drivers license in hand, i purchased two tallboys of my very favorite old-school beer: budweiser!

boo-yeah...and this the bettina's favorite girl cameo: ahahahahah....i have entered her lj universe....oh the beer is catching up with me....we just turned the heat back on in the apartment. it was getting fucking cold in here

B again- my, that pee was refreshing.

a weekend recap (as if any of you are actually interested):

friday: a lovely and unexpected uh, get-together.
saturday: recovery and dirty dancing havana nights (don't see it)
sunday: purchase of martha stewart everyday kitchenware at k-mart and grilled steaks and veggies for dinner.

and now, rushmore while i go to bed.

i've just returned from dropping off some more applications. it seems the importance of my interview on friday has now elevated to some unattainable status. I NEED A JOB. BADLY.

in other news...

my web-savvy girlfriend has given my LJ a makeover; i'm quite pleased with the overall results. this weekend, while we were record shopping in indianapolis last weekend, we came across some promotional stickers for the new modest mouse album. my new layout is based on those stickers. (needless to say, i'm pretty impatient for the april release of the album as well.)

i got the most fabulous package in the mail on saturday, filled with beautiful songs, cards, pictures, and writing. jenna is HOTT.

sarah and i are thinking of taking a trip to texas sometime in april to figure out living arrangements for next year. ideally, this trip will cram in time with both of our families and friends. i miss mine more than i thought i would; it's comforting to know that we'll be back in the lone star state by the year's end.

things i miss about texas:
-warm weather and a healthy dose of daily sunshine
-barbeque and real mexican food
-my beautiful dogs
-lauren, mom, the extended fam, and all my friends
-shiner bock
-the beach

but hey, don't get me wrong. i like bloomington-- nothing beats getting to sleep next to my lovely lady every night, otherwise i wouldn't be here. the town has a lot to offer (although i'm not so sure employment is one of them). i'm particularly excited about the upcoming spring; i've heard about the transformation of it as trees regain their fullness, and daffodils, tulips and other assorted flowers spring up with abandon. definitely something to look forward to.

OK this LJ entry officially sucks..

my girlfriend is the best.

she bought me my trashiest guilty pleasure ever, and even cuddled and read it with me. not once did she talk shit about how it's basically a tabloid in disguise.

she rocks my socks off.

i don't even know... [Feb. 15th, 2004|01:12 am]

[music |the shins "new slang"]

it snowed a little this morning.

last night, i attended my first b-town party, which mainly consisted of scene hoes. luckily, there were a few people whose conversations actually held my esteem for awhile.

even though i'm quite aware that valentine's day is a total crock of shit and that corporate america invented it mainly to pocket more money, i wanted to make the day (somewhat) romantic to my lady.

i was planning on making her breakfast in bed; alas, we didn't wake up until noon, at which point i felt too nauceous (from last night's partying) to do anything constructive. about two hours later, i finally decided to make her a tex-mex breakfast (or should i call it brunch?) which consisted of egg + potato tacos. i like that lots of things we have done lately are reminiscent of texas.

b-money and her posse are probably dancing their asses off at this exact moment. i hope they're having fuuuuun.

my mommy sent sarah and i the cutest valentine's day package ever. never, ever would i think that i'd get a package from my mom, which basically encapsulates her happiness over sarah and i being in love.


certainly not me.

anyhow, the package had cards and jewelry for both my lady and myself, and some girl scout cookies to boot. how lovely.

i've practically eaten them all already.

Marriage is love.

shucks [Feb. 1st, 2004|01:36 pm]
[mood |highhigh]
[music |spiritualized "ladies and gentlemen we are floating in space]

i regret to inform the interested reader that my days as a bored suburban housewife are not yet over, contrary to popular belief. upon learning that my mother (whose shoes are harder to fill than i expected) is stuck in france after missing her flight, it seems that i'm stuck in this role for at least another day.

boo, i say. poor form!

at least i have some tasty treats to occupy my time until then. (tasty treats being tasty northern lights... my lady takes excellent care of me, thankyouverymuch.)

i'm not sure whether the news will affect my date of departure; i doubt that it will, as my family knows how anxious i am to get on the road already. i've got the ok to borrow lauren's cell phone for the trip (for use strictly in case of emergency, i said, at least until after nine), got my car ready to go, in the midst of packing right now...

and then i'll be off, off, off to the midwest.

i have to say, i am a bit hesitant about the drive itself. any helpful hints for long drives, or playlists made for driving would be appreciated. wish me a safe trip, folks, i'm gonna need it.

[music |the good life "off the beaten path"]

it's been surreal lately here at the homefront. i'm babysitting lauren while my mother is in europe, and frankly, playing the suburban housewife has turned me into a walking ball of neuroses the past few days.

i'm feeling all right now, though, which is nice. after a day of household chores, running errands, and working out, i fixed a leisurely dinner for my sister and myself consisting of grilled fish, baked potatoes, steamed asparagus and a caesar salad. (oh yes, and a nice bottle of chardonnay for myself. i don't usually drink white, but it goes with the fish better than red.) post-dinner, i ensured that her homework was done; now we're watching the spurs game.

i feel like such a mother. it's bizarre!

i think another reason my emotions are completely across the board right now is the fact that i am moving in one week. seven days. i feel as if i'm not completely prepared for the move, but in actuality, i am. i think it's just my nerves getting to me.

my lady has been so good to me these past couple of days. it's been tough on both of us, the way i've been busy with lauren a lot lately, but i feel it's necessary. i'd hate to leave my family on bad terms.

god, i'm really going to miss my family, more than i realized i would. and my dogs, too! the good thing is i'll be back in texas sometime during the summer, and i'm really looking forward to that, because sarah and i can both go to school and be productive at the same time.

i'm really pretty tired of doing the long-distance thing and i just can't do it anymore. lately, every day has been a battle... i can't bear to live like this much longer.

perhaps it's just my neuroses speaking. or my hormones.
