Tarsems The Fall

Tarsem's The Fall

Lately I’ve been given to stress, anxiety, fatigue. But here’s the thing. I’m so happy right now. I’m doing things I want to do, I’m in love, my friends are amazing, I am so busy doing really fun things. SO. I am going to be more positive and reprogram my thinking. I have so much to be grateful for… I just need to think about that the first thing in the morning to set the tone for my whole day.

That said, HOLY SHIT, have you seen The Fall? It’s my new favorite movie! It’s like visual crack. Not that I know anything about crack. But seriously, it’s gorgeous. (I mean, no matter what you thought about The Cell, you can’t say it wasn’t neat to look at… Same guy.) More importantly, I love the story and the child Tarsem cast in the main role is AMAZING. She is the most adorable little Russian girl, and seems to just be genuinely happy, doesn’t seem to be acting. Anyway, rent this movie. Heart.

Tonight I’m going to see Gnarls Barkley! And then tomorrow night I am going to see the Butthole Surfers and/or Hot Chip. I am actually really pleased about not going to ACL this year and just going to the off-Zilker shows.

Oh, quick brag about niece: I sent her a letter and asked her what her favorite animal is (she is two years old) and my sister said, “When I asked her what her favorite animal was, she first said a panda bear, then she said Saint Juliana.” Aw, I love you Juliana!


Assault by FARTING September 25, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — slova @ 4:21 pm


A man is being charged with assault and battery because he FARTED on a POLICE OFFICER.  This is the BEST news I have heard in awhile!  Second only to Emily’s recent post of a woman claiming “Rape by Deception.”  Which, by the way, is actually pretty disturbing. See my comment on her blog.

In other news, I received my first Russian exam result of the semester yesterday: A-! Ура!

And for the record, Aaron has completely endeared me to the phrase “taking the fart train to grease town.”  (Which was recently celebrated by a visit to Players.)

So tired of being so tired...

"So tired of being so tired..."


i am so tired. too tired to study. too tired to complete work tasks. too tired to do the dishes. too tired finish art projects. too tired to complete any one thing and yet trying to multi-task through all. i’m exhausted. i am not sure what’s wrong with me. i am taking my daily vitamins, going to the gym and getting to bed at a decent hour.  my school load is lighter than it has been in recent semesters. i am going to up my gym visits and lighten up on the caffiene. hopefully that will help, because each morning i wake up completely unsatisfied with the sleep i’ve had the night before, and i drag throughout the day fatigued and longing for nap-time. what’s wrong with me?

i will update this blog soon with actual things. it’s on my list. my every-growing, mother-hucking list.
