i finally finished my boring 1500 word analytical paper comparing several assigned works, one if which was Don Quixote. thank you, monica, for giving me the inspiration to move on with it:

“knights used to have metal penises. that’s where we got the term ‘lubrication’ – because they had to oil them up…”

“when you go to medeival times they don’t give you forks or knives to eat with…”

Don Quixote and A Thousand and One Nights were really bad movies. i don’t think there’s a movie of that other one, but if there was, it would probably suck, too…”

dad calls me to tell me that he thinks grandma had a stroke and is in the hospital and could i call his sister leslie (since they don’t speak to eachother) and find out which hospital she’s in. i get this in a message. i call leslie immediately, and she, exhausted, tells me that grandma had a “mini-stroke” (sounds cute, don’t it?) but is okay and now at home. so i don’t call dad back. he lives next door to them for god’s sake. retarded. i feel guilty.

aaron quits his job at the flower company and is working at i love video where they’ve cleared my late fees and now give me free movies for life. his hours are at night, when i get home from work. it will take some getting used to. maybe i’ll actually get some work done. i miss him already. but it’ll be a fine change.

i can never get myself to sit down to complete my coursework, because there is always something more interesting to be doing. like anything else besides that. and i feel guilty.

i am not going to the family reunion. i’m not going because i don’t want to put up with the inevitable bullshit, and if it is at it’s best, spend a week with a bunch of strangers i’m related to. i feel guilty. they’ll write me out of their wills. blacklist me from their inheritance receiving.


my behind.

i’m so behind. i am not going to be able to catch everyone up on everything. i’m working lots, procrastinating in my studies, and having fun.

i uploaded some photos from a couple of months ago:

My flickr.

love all of you. send me love letters.

mucho besos y queso.

i’ve been awake for 8 hours all weekend. i’ve been sick. i hoped it wouldn’t happen. the government has something to do with this, i just know it. everyone at my job has been out sick and everyone at aaron’s job has been out sick. i went out this morning for kolaches and everyone had the same red nose as me. everyone’s combating this plague. i’ve been fighting a cough for about a week, but didn’t think much of it. power of positive thinking and all that. then, on friday, i left early to go see barak obama speak at auditorium shores. i will upload photos of this event later (quick highlight: aaron neville’s brother and sister sing “i don’t think you’re ready for obama, i don’t think you’re ready for obama, i don’t think you’re ready for this; obama’s too suavalicious for ya, babe” – i’m not lying; my friend cici was the interpreter for the speech and i was so proud of her, up there in front of 20, 000 people speaking to the deaf! cici rules!; it rained and i think this is what finally did me in).

so, i’ve been inside for about 48 hours now. just watched david lynch on klru/pbs’ texas monthly. i like his weird hand tick. according to louisa, he has a daily l.a. weather diary, i don’t know where this is. i did, however, find his new movie inland empire‘s italian trailer.

nothing to do but homework, eat chicken noodle soup, forego the parties and watch the oscar’s at home.
