and you thought you had a bad day.

to be honest I was a bit stressed that all my books wouldn't come in on time
especially the odyssey which omg I have to read six sections of by next monday and a bunch of chapters from the book about
orality and literacy
both of which I am quite good at
I know everyone loves what they're taking in school or at least likes it to some extent
because why else would they take it
but I seriously love being a rhetoric student because language and communication is so, so
and fascinating and weird and I come out of my classes all jazzed up about it
which I guess makes me into one of those over-zealous students I used to make fun of
(and still kinda do)
I'm a keener
I've gotta start making better binder covers

but if we did it'd be nice to be serenaded by some random guy who will sing us tenacious d songs and then post the super cute video on the internet.
and we'll sing along, obvs.
- by adminI try to do it every day, at least once a day.
I've made great friends, connections, and opportunities as a result of my little slice of The Internet.
honestly, I'm not sure what I'd do without it.
but the U.S. Congress is in the process of trying to push forward legislation that would not only affect me and my blog, but the entire Internet as we know it, which is completely unacceptable.
there are lots of great sites that are blacked-out today in protest of the two pieces of legislation, SOPA and PIPA
and lots more
and for the rest of the day, I'll be joining the protest and not posting anything further on my blog.
it's not much, but it's a start.
so get yourself educated and if you're in the US, write your member of Congress asking them to vote against the bill. if you're a non-US citizen like me, you can petition the state department.
don't let the foolish actions of a few destroy something that is important to so many.
- by adminnobody needs to read more of those
so instead I've found some cool stuff to leave you with as I sign off on 2011 and look towards 2012
and some videos:
Okay, it's time to start partying. See you kids in 2012!
Happy New Year everyone!
- by adminyeah I try not to, either
those were much darker days, without 4chan and reddit and 2 girls 1 cup
okay maybe we could do without that last one
last night we watched a flick called 'Streets of Fire'
with hot 18yr old Diane Lane & Willem Dafoe in leather overalls
and 80s power ballads
which we fist-pumped & lip-synced to from the couch
and afterward Tyrone was all like
"hey wanna see something weird?"
and told me that when he was a kid he was watching Inspector Gadget
and his sister put on a Bonnie Tyler LP
and they matched up
and thanks to the magic of The Internet
I can show you
what Tyrone and his sister discovered
before The Internet.
so mute & watch this:
- by adminas of 5pm I'm off work until next Tuesday (see you next Tuesday har har) which means I'll be attempting to make my time at the gym match up with the amount of eating, lazing around and holiday boozing I'll be doing. T'isn't the season for self-restraint, it's not often anyone makes me dinner any more.
basically I want this to be me right down to the silly hat and gingerbread
going last-minute shopping with Ty tonight which is going to be scary. we're going to Toys R Us to get stuff for his nieces & nephew and I'm getting a headache just thinking of the screeching pre-Christmas kids losing their minds in that store. you'll probably find me hiding out in the infants section caressing a toy that makes some sort of soothing sound.
okay that's not true. I don't really mind going at all except that I'd rather be sitting in my warm living room under the glow of our (real!!!) Christmas tree sipping a strong beverage watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, or, preferably, Drunk History Christmas with Ryan Gosling, Jim Carrey and Eva Mendes
if I could just have this forever I'd be such a happy lady
happy (almost) holidays!
- by adminbut when they've been repressing an entire country their whole lives
being the butt of so many jokes already
does that make it okay?
I guess so.
My fav Kim Jong-Il joke since he died on Saturday is Kim Jong-Il dropping the base
too bad the self-described 'internet expert probably never even knew of the hilarious memes that his bizarre onesie-clad self spawned
