time time time

you know how when you go back to things you knew as a child, they can seem surprisingly small (like the drainer thing, yellow, my mother has used for macaroni since the dawn of time), or suddenly not scary (like the huge, loud fountain at cloverleaf mall in c-ville), or just rather unexiting (like the slide at the pool where I learned to swim in Petersburg). Well color me stupid, I didn't know it happened to people! I carried a silly little crush around for YEARS until last night, when it all went kaplooey. Which is good, i suppose, or would have been, had I not been super drunk. The crush got kinda chubby and he doesnt have a job and generally just reeks of loser, which I think I said to his face at some point. Golly, I'm so nice.

feb 20th is the day

the bloggy b-day. Feb 20th. 1 full year, one time around, 365 days, its hardly changed, its changed completely. Barely anyone reads this little spot on the internets, but i don't mind. its my little place to relay the funny things that come into my head, and the good things, and the bad, although you hardly know any of the bad, internets. hardly. i smile because I've done something consistently for a whole year =)

music is it

"exit music"...radiohead....still, continuously, since the very first time it touched my ears...the most esquisite, delicate, violent, amazing, incredible piece of music I've ever heard. touches a chord deep deep inside and draws tears almost every time. i can hardly believe this beautiful creation came from a person. this is what music does to me. the epitome of it.

the madness approaches.

I'm so mad at basketball right now. Louisville is 11th in their conference, Kentucky is 3rd (with a 5-5 record, ew) in theirs. So what am I going to do come March you say? Damn good question. Keep my fingers crossed until then, #1. Then I have some (limited) options for generating some kind of cheering capability. First, hometown team GW is undefeated in their conference, having dropped only 1 game overall. But really, there is so minor a connection there, entirely geographical, don't know if that will cut it. I may possibly be disowned for the following statement, but I can say, if limited to only this season, F the ACC. I will root for any ACC team besides...ahem....Clemson, Miami, UNC, or Duke. As you can see, my options are limited there as well. However, UVA wahoowa for life and all that jazz. I still represent. I could arguably get behind Villanova pre 2005-06 season. Now, oops sorry, in the same conference as U of L? Yeah, no love for you. My alma mater, GMU, is #1 in their conference (the colonial athletic association) but, yeah, we know thats not happening. Memphis from Conf USA? Yeah, I been to Memphis, you guys really don't like people from Louisville, do you? Well I do. No, before you ask, I'm not rooting for Florida or Tennessee or Georgia, well maybe Georgia, but only if you make me.

I am left with Pac 10 as a viable option. Well, nope, sorry, but I'm from the East Coast. I dig SF and all, but its just wrong when it comes down to basketball. we are...I could go snooty on ya'll, Ivy League style. Princeton perhaps. Penn more likely.

Ok, ok. We all know I'm lying. I'm gonna watch no matter what comes. But if I have to wait another year to get all up in a tizzy about one of my teams, ya'll...I don't know if I can do it.

st. valentine has brought snow!

After a winter full of 60 degree days (so not complaining) it has finally managed to snow! Real snow! I havent measured but 8 inches or more? Enough to cover the cat up to her chin which is freaking hilarious - and she loves it. The other cat is scared, but then again, she's scared of everything, so you know, thems tha breaks. So now I'm going to tromp on over to the 7-11 and get me some snow supplies, chocolate. I had the opportunity to go to a party last night, basically willingly getting trapped in a house with first drunk, then hungover people for several hours/days. Im doubting my decision not to go a little now, cause I bet they are sledding. Actually, its 10 am, I bet they are sleeping. But they will be sledding soon. OH WELL.
In other news, I've had Hey Jude in my head since Friday night. Perhaps it will go away no that I've given it the attention it has been fighting for. See, song stuck in my head, I've gone and published your good name. Now go away and bother someone else.

two thousand zero zero

While driving to work today, I was thinking about yesterday's post. Specifically the party like its 1999 part. I realized, happily, that that statement will ALWAYS have meaning for me. Years will go by, Prince will fade into history (if he can ever manage to get older, did you SEE him on SNL last week?!)and generations of people to come will never get the full reference. But it will always mean something for me, you see, because I was born in 1978. Therefore, 1999 was the year I turned 21. And yes, oh yes, I did party.

movin on uh-uup! to the east side...

There are major major developments at work. M-A-J-O-R. Very good things. Very daunting things. Very fun things. May be in a position to actually put words in print soon, do not want to jinx myself. In other news, came to the realization today that I am not presenting as a fine-tuned machine, physically wise and otherwise. I'm on a high, for many reasons. Item one...I like 2 TV shows enough to commit an entire hour to watching them. First order of business? Watch those two shows, and only those two shows, every week, and find better things to do with the rest of my time.

its a little bit sad

I've mentioned Jerry Springer in the last two posts. Who knew he was such an important part of my life? Haha. Make that three in a row. And you will NEVER SEE IT AGAIN. unless i get bored and make fun of myself by referencing one of the aforementioned posts sometimes in the future.

dream dream dream

On three seperate occasions this week I've dreamt of my parents becoming embattled in a nasty divorce, and woken up actually physically crying. My parents have been married for almost 40 years (next year) and there has been no chance of even a trial seperation since about 1986. So I'm really thinking this is not a dream to be literally interpreted. This is what dream dictionary. com has to say...

To dream of your parents could be quite an involved thing and must be sorted out by consulting the rest of your dream. By and large the dream of a father is a dream symbol of authority which this parent has held over you, it could also represent power, or strength, or discipline. A dream of a mother is usually a dream that foretells a happy conclusion concerning a love interest as a mother represents love, protection, and nourishment of the body or the spirit. If a deceased parent speaks to you in a dream you will have some very good luck. Unfortunately to dream of parents in law you will soon become involved in an embarrassing situation.

Divorce (court)
A dream of a divorce, whether you are in a courtroom or not, is a warning that you must change your ways and learn to compromise rather then demand, or your marriage is in danger of divorce. A single life of frustration is that of a woman who dreams of a divorce because of cheating lovers.

This does not help very much. Attempting to meld these thoughts to fit "parents divorcing" makes no freakin sense. Perhaps Jerry Springer is on in the middle of the night and when I fall asleep with the TV on it just gets all up in my subconscious.
