Fortune says "Among the lucky, you are the chosen one." This was my fortune from our Friday night beer, Chinese, and Battlestar. I can has a destiny?

Ok, I think I have finally figured out how to Twitter. Want to follow me? or just username: devilgrrl

Same as before, I just changed it to reflect my LJ name.

I have about 2 minutes before I need to pack up and go to class. Classes are decent so far, though my financial aid is still hinky. I do miss my bed a lot, though. My day is basically running from 7:30ish to 21:30ish on good days. I've basically given up on any semblance of a social life this semester.

And that's all the time I have. I'm off to fill my water bottle and go to 2D design.

Things that are good today: easy parking at school, financial aid stuff is done, extra hours at work today, a nice paycheque, the super nice girls at Providence Lush, Cambodian food with my husband, and finding the Coffee Exchange and Wickenden Street finally.

What made you guys happy today?

Your Issue Profile: 80% Obama, 20% McCain

When it comes to the issues, you agree with Obama on almost everything.

Surprised? Probably not. You've had your eye on Obama for a while.

In fact, you're likely already a strong Obama supporter.

You know where your vote is going this November.

I think it's officially summer. It was so obscenely hot in here that I just turned the AC back on, electrical cost be damned. Not that I can sleep anyway.

I ended up sleeping literally all of the day. I woke up at 2, didn't feel great, so I lay back down on the couch and when I woke up again, it was 7, in the midst of a really interesting dream about the ocean. I should not fall asleep watching things on sinking ships on the Travel Channel.

I made real iced tea to have around the house. It's kind of novel. Usually we have diet Pepsi (mine) or Crystal Lite (Steven's), so this is a nice change for both of us. Plus it's probably better for me than diet soda. We have eleventy billion different kinds of tea, so I think we shall be in for a run of flavoured teas.

I need to get a new container for my iced teas. There's a Target run in my future.

Teen charged in dad's slaying

EDIT: More Congdon Confessed.

That was my old next door neighbour! I used to babysite for the kid in the photo. Bernie and Pam were responsible for teaching me about gardening. I was always over there as a kid. I just saw Bernie a few years ago. My sister called to tell me about this today because, obviously, she knew him too.

I think the last murder in Chittenden was like 30 years ago, when someone found a foot and half a leg in a hiking boot up to the New Boston Road. Wonder if this'll make the news down here.

I redid my layout because I was tired of seeing penguins all the time. Now: cephalopods! The head bones of their close cousins are what we give to parakeets to keep their evil little beaks all sharp and such. And now I get to pay bills and keep avoiding laundry, cleaning, and art in that order.

It feels good to have art to avoid though.

Hey FList. I have a question for you. What fictional, female character do you most empathise with and why?

So, how come we can perfect this, but we can't make breast implants safer? And why is this even necessary?

Not another thing I usually do, but please take a look at the following link and if possible, sign the petition:

Towson Uni suspended an orthodox Jewish officer for refusing to work on Shabbat or on Rosh Hashana. They are looking to collect 1,000 signatures by Friday. Anyhow, much appreciated if anyone would like to sign.

Here's a partial list of things that I should be doing:
  • Cleaning the bathroom instead of falling asleep on the couch
  • Compiling a list of addresses for the wedding invites that are going out in about a month.
  • Addressing said invites.
  • Maintaining a more effective sobriety
  • Knitting
  • Not plotting Steven's death for vacuuming since he's the only one of us motivated enough to be cleaning
  • Getting the groceries and Wal*Mart strata from the car.
  • Wasting time on the interwebz
  • Contemplating buying more books when I haven't even finished reading the ones I have.
  • Rooting out songs I don't want on my MP3 player
  • Not being bitter about things I can't control
  • Paying bills

Here's what I'm actually doing:

  • Reading ElJay
  • Being half asleep on the couch, lazy, and halfway through some bastard rum cooler
  • Listening to both Michael Buble and Steven sing Home
  • Waiting for house guests.

I suck.

This one goes along with having the dumb. Brainworms are worse than the dumb.

Since I have become housebound (I prefer "domestic diva" over "housewife") I have had the spare time to enter lots and lots of contests. I never win anything because I am terribly unlucky. Nevertheless, it gives me something to do while I am home. So, the other day, when I got notice for a package from UPS, I couldn't possibly imagine what it was.

Turns out I won a Lemony Snicket contest from our local theatre. I have not seen this movie, I have not read the book, and what's more, I probably won't see the movie until it comes out on DVD. The 5 lb. box contained a tee shirt (sz.large), an adjustable hat, some lobby cards, and a pair of pewter bookends.

Ooh, potato is done.

So, yea. Evidently, I only win contests I have no use for.

We had chicken piccata for dinner tonight, sans capers, and asparagus. It was really, really good, despites a few (smoky) mishaps. Steven's offering to actually make it a couple more times to perfect it. I'm good to go. It was really, amazingly good.

I'm going to eat my potato and wait for the drugs to kick in. Damn knee.

My mom called me today to let me know that my old anatomy and physiology teacher was found dead in his home today. From what rumours say, it appears he OD'ed on prescription drugs.

I just saw him the other day, when I was talking to a friend of mine and waiting on Steven. He didn't look good, but then again, he's always looked kind of sick. He missed most of my junior year because his leukemia came out of remission. It's kind of odd to think of him as dead.

However, I can't say I feel bad. He was never anything more than an asshole to me and a lot of other people. I do feel bad for his family, because he wasn't very old, but I still can't help thinking that he did get what was coming to him.

Laura, you know who I'm talking amount. Isn't there a lot of irony about this?
