Happy Birthday to Fred! Who I love, for the most part. I hope you have a great day!


Just wandered in the door, soaking like a drowned rat. I don't smell like a rat though, I don't think. I went and saw a movie with a friend. We saw Hitch, once we made it to the theater that is. Six turns around, one U-ey in the middle of the road - in the dark and rain, and directions from our friendly neighborhood McDonald's later.

It was not too bad, actually. It was cute, and sappy like all good romantic comedies are. Plus, it made me feel super crummy about being single! But only for a few minutes, that sickness has passed, I'm all better now.

After dispensing some friendly advice to my friend about her current troubles with relationships (which kind of made me feel bad for us seeing Hitch. Myself, if Imaginary Boyfriend and I were fighting, I'd go see a good slasher movie and superimpose his face over all the victims, but hey...that's just me), she dropped me off and here I am. Safe and sound, aren't you all glad?

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to bed. I've got a zillion plastic Easter Eggs to stuff and hide in the wee hours of morning before God even wakes up, and I need my bunny sleep. And why am I doing this, you wonder? Why, it's so that the cute little kiddies can scurry around all happy and giggling and steal them so I have to buy more next year find them, of course.


Ah! Figment boyfriend.
How I love thee! Your silent,
and leave the seat down.


Mucho loves to Kelly, who's had a rough couple of weeks because her job was crappy and let her go, but has pulled through like a champ. No worries hon, it'll get better. We love you!

Mucho hate to Furhead. You know what you did. Smoking! BAH! You just didn't tell me because you knew I'd kill you dead. Oh, and I will. You just wait. I will.


It's Springtime again.
See the Easter Bunny and
Take your picture now.


I know everyone is sick of this, but I really want one. So I'm pimping it again. Yes, it's that, the Free iPod offer.

I only need three two more people. Three! Two! Thanks Vince, you rock.

Yes, I know the offers you have to complete are stupid. (One of the people who did it for me did the blockbuster one, and ended up with two free months of movies and 10 free movie rentals in store out of it...their service was pretty good)

If you don't know how this works...then listen up! You follow my referral link, and sign up. Upon signing up you must complete an offer (I bought ink) and then you must have five people sign up under you and complete an offer. All I need to get the iPod is for you to complete your offer, if you want one, you have to have five people complete theirs. Evil, isn't it?

Most of the offers are stupid, but there are a couple free 30 day trials (like efax) which all you have to do is put in a debt/credit card number and then cancel it in a week or so. It won't cost you anything. Plus, the other one, Zooba is kind of neat, you sign up for books and they send them to you once a month at a flat rate per book with free shipping. I might actually do it.

Yes, the whole thing is a marketing ploy, but you get a free iPod, and I really want one. Have I mentioned that?

I am a poor college student who will be spending nearly ten hours a day on campus this next term. Please support me in giving me tunes, so that I do not go postal and staple people to death in the Student Life office.

Please, desperation is so unattractive. Don't you want me to stop begging now?


Final grades today.
Oh, the scarry horrorness,
I'm sure I got Ds.


Since the roommate is in Eugene for the next week, I have the apartment to myself. Just me, myself, and the naughty I. Do you think I'm taking full advantage of it? Of course not. Here I could be throwing wild parties, hosting orgies, or at the very least going through his stuff, but I'm not.

I'm so boring, I should be ashamed.

I'm taking advantage of it by working, oh, and doing a new layout. See? It's new. So tell me, my fantastic readers, what do you think? I pounded it out in about an hour, I just want to know if it's that obvious or not. I skipped Spring all together and went straight for Summer. Let me know what you think. Honesty is great, but lying is even better.

I don't have everything up yet. I want to add more sidebar stuff, like my playlist and whatnot, but I'm done with it for tonight.

For the record: I told you so! I told you I'd do one and I did! I'm so proud of me, someone get me a gold star.

Mucho thanks to James, who listen to me whine through 90% of getting this thing to work right. I always have the worst trouble with the dang side tables. You're a sweetie!
I've got a thing for this J-Pop/Rocky type group. I don't know why, but their songs are pretty good, even if they aren't in English. Maybe the reason I like it so much is because it is in another language and so I don't have to think about it. It could also just be because they're gosh darn catchy.

It's kind of a mix between rap and pop and a little bit of rocky feeling mixed in. It's good stuff, you can hear my two favorite songs of theirs here.

Home Made Kazoku - Thank You
Home Made Kazoku - Home Sweet Home

Yeah. I don't get it either. "Thank You" is also the second ending theme for Bleach, but I swear that doesn't have anything to do with it. Lyrics are here, what's really spiffy, is the songs aren't about shooting anyone or banging someone on your bathroom floor. It's shocking, but nice.

Lyrics - Home Sweet Home
Lyrics - Thank You

Download to your hearts content, yo. I'll leave them up for a couple of days.
I hit the two button on my phone. Speed dial, it's a marvelous invention. I know his number by heart, but laziness and I are bosom buddies. It's easier to just push one button, then poke at ten of them. I had to sit on my hands though, because they were so cold I was shaking. I decided, as the phone was happily ringing in my ear, that luck was on my side. Nine times out of ten, he doesn't answer his phone. Maybe I would get lucky, and he wouldn't answer this time either.

I didn't want to be the one to do this.

With each ring I became more and more anxious. Was he going to answer? I wasn't going to cry - I had already cried about it once, and I wasn't going to again. Besides, you can't tell someone something like this while you're crying. I had to be supportive. It was a rule, some kind of unspoken best-friend law. I had my cry for the day, one cry is all you get. Any more garners you a beating, and not the kind you enjoy.

I wondered to myself, if he would be terribly offended if I just hung up if he answered? I know I had to tell him, but did it have to be today? Couldn't it be when he was 90, and in the hospital with Botchulism because he won't stop eating dented cans of crap he finds in his cellar? "By the way..." I would say, slyly slipping it in while I sat next to his bed and avoided looking at the beef bouillon Jell-O wiggle on the side table. "I never told you but..."

His voice mail picked up, and I jumped.

"Um...it's me." I said, trying hard to be very even. See, I'm not too bad of an actress, it almost sounded normal. "Give me a call when you can."

I hit the end button, and cried. He hasn't called me back. All I can do now is wait.


Bad news really sucks.
I hate making people sad,
Do it for me, ok?


Alright. I want to go see Ring 2. I don't want to go alone, because going alone to the movies is a bit on the pathetic side. No offense to those of you who are more comfortable as a person then I am, and can go to the movies by yourself. I'm just not that secure. Nobody I've asked will go with me because they "Don't like scary movies".

I'm friends with a bunch of chickens.

Someone want to go with me? I've already seen the Japanese one, but I want to see the American version. C'mon. It can't be that scary. I'll be your best friend. I'll give you a cookie! Please? Pretty please? You know you wanna.

By the way, the graphics aren't loading because I'm a Mook and forgot to renew Brighterskyte.com on time. It's just one more reason why I need to do a new layout, or hire an extremely cute personal assistant in tight jeans. Whichever.


Today is Monday.
I didn't go anywhere,
The joys of Spring Break.


Only one more day to go, and the term is completely fin. I managed to finish all my papers, and I even got in a few minutes of studying at the study group today. It was a heck of a lot of fun, but not very productive. There were only four of us there, but the other three there were the three funnest people in the class anyhow, so it was all good. I lent out my notes, it's good to know that I'm useful for something. Most of the rest of the time was spent talking about sex or cats, because when you get down to it, isn't that all there really is?

I'm so fried with this term that I can't even remember if my mentoring class assigned a responsive reading essay for the last week of term - which was last week. Since I have until tomorrow to figure it out, I guess I'm going to have to go sheepishly track down my professor and tell him I finally blew the last marble to bitty-bits, and see if there was one.

The Zoo final is tomorrow. I feel much more comfortable with the information that's (supposedly) covered on this exam then the last one. I haven't spoken of the last exam on here, because there is shame, and you really don't want me to drudge up shame do you? It won't be flattering to either of us.

I'm totally done and ready for a break. A whole week of not having to trample back and forth from campus. I promise, I'll change the layout and stop whining. I've been super whine girl lately and it's starting to even get on my nerves.

So, how about you? How are all of you doing? Good? Almost good? Poor? Tell me all about it wouldja? My comments are lonely, and I know I have more then five readers, and that's not even counting the ones I've made up. Of course, I know my posts have been lacking lately, so the no comment thing is my own fault. I'll get my sense of humor back someday, honest.


Spitting is nasty.
Flying drops of saliva,
Riddled with germies.


In the post below, I am just kidding, by the way. The girls on the SL&CS Team are fantastic. They're a very caring, helpful, and extremely hysterical group to work with, and I very much enjoy being a part of their team.

This is the first time I've actually worked at a place this long, and have yet to completely dislike it by this time, and I'm seriously easy going. Your workplace has to be pretty darn bad to have me not want to work there.
Spring break is soon. Since I only have one final (and two final papers all due on Wednesday) I really don't have to worry about rushing around to finals. I will be doing work study trying to work in about 30 hours next week, but it's running the Book Exchange.

If you go to CCC, don't take your books to the Bookstore! Take them to the Book Exchange near Student Life. You can set your own prices, which means you can make more money off your books. Plus, I believe we accept books that the Bookstore won't buy back. We're running for the next two weeks, so stop by, ok? Oh, and we're so much more fun then the overpriced Bookstore people are!

I don't mean that actually, yes we're fun, but I like the Bookstore people. Don't tell the CL&CS Team though, they've got a little rivalry going on. I've seen them eye the Bookstores advertisements. I've seen the way they've slyly shoved the table-tents on to the floor and stepped on them with a little gleeful dance. Or the way they cover the Bookstores advertisements on the bulletin boards with ours after poking a million tiny manic pinholes in their posters. I've seen our door hangers torn in half and tossed on the dirty dirt, or the way our flyers mysteriously vanished from the information desk. There is some serious competition going on there, I may get tarred and feathered for my little confession.

Since I'm going to be having so much free time (nearly two weeks with no classes! Huzzah!), making a new layout for this blog is going to be on the top of my "Things to do to Waste Time" list. Right up there with bowling and getting my nails done. Seriously superficial, but I've never had them done before, and some people have the prettiest nails. Since I've never gotten them done before, I know nothing about it. What kinds are the best to get? What colors? Anyone?
It has been so lovely outside this week. I guess wearing my capris during frosty mornings as a plea for Spring and freezing my legs solid finally paid off, it's supposed to be 75 today! It's actually nearly unheard of here in Oregon in March. Normally, we're in the 30-40 range, sometimes we even have snow. I prefer this over the snow anyday. Hear that snow? I don't want you this year, stay away.

I've been keeping my windows open, since it's so great out. It's not even cold when I get up in the morning, it's just pleasantly cool. This is perfect spring camping weather, anyone want to go camping? I promise not to let you get mauled by a bear. I'll bring the marshmallows. You bring the cute park rangers. Three or so, if it's no trouble.

Even the birds are happy, they're out twittering in the trees near my window. I've also been hearing an owl hoot, maybe he's a confused owl? Or maybe he's just enjoying the sunshine as well.

The only drawback to this lov-a-lee weather, is that if it stays this nice after the next term starts, I'm going to be sorely distracted from my studies and work. In fact, I'm going to be extremely tempted to play hooky. Every day. I won't, I promise, but I'll be really, really tempted. I might even whine about it, which we don't need any more of. Maybe my instructors will have classes outside? That would be spiffy.

That inspires me. I've got YCC in a little over two hours. I think perhaps we'll have our class outside today. Take out some chalk, the hula hoops, some balls...yeah. Come play, it'll be fun. Hopefully they haven't started construction on the back parking lot yet, if they have, we can't go outside, since the grass is right past the construction site.

Keep your fingers crossed, and have a fantastic day!


Finals in three days.
Oh, such lovely spring weather,
So hard to focus.


Today is the last day of classes. Not counting the one final I have this coming finals week, but that doesn't count, because it's not a class. See? In honor of it being the last day of classes, and sunny, I made up this little song.

It's the last day of classes, so I'll sing this song.
I could do a dance, but it would be really wrong.
I don't have to do squat,
For the next two weeeks.
Because it's the last day of classseeeess!

Fantastic, hu? Yep. I sang it in the shower. My roommate is thrilled, I'm sure.

Buckets of fun isn't it? 20 credits, and I've been asked to join two more classes, but in order to do that I mess up the delicate balance of not having any classes until 10:30, save Thursdays. I worked hard to make sure I didn't have morning classes, because I'm tired of being on campus between 7 and 8 AM every day.

I'm going to miss some of the ECE girls though. As you can see, there are no ECE classes. I was told yesterday in a student forum meeting that the program is pretty much secure now, (yay!) I just couldn't work in any other classes but Child Learning Experiences, and I'm not sure I want that as an 8 AM class.

I also have no fun classes. Technically, I find Zoology to be a blast, but I mean a fun worthless class. Everyone else is taking pottery or drawing or bowling (yes, I was jealous) so I really want to slip one in, but I just don't think I can. Plus, I already owe nearly 300 dollars more then I normally do for tuition, and so...I'm thinking no. I can't afford it. Dangit anyway, I wanted to take pottery.


Time to brush my hair.
It's the last day of classes,
Don't want to look mussed.


Helens erupted again about 12 minutes ago, and it's so clear you can see the plume from my balcony. How cool is that?

You can watch the Smith Tower Cam here. It's got a fantastic view.
