Everything's rolling... badly.

Well, astronomy's a night class, and so I can't take Intro to Writing Creative Non-Fiction, which is a night class, because I CANNOT bag out of astronomy. (I'm not yelling at you - I'm reminding myself.) The apartment is small and not smashingly kept up, but those factors make nobody want it, which drives the price down, down, down. So we'll probably take it. The realtor will let us have a dog, so it's pretty much a go unless we find something else *really* soon. I keep getting bad grades on these philosophy things - test essays. I can't really figure out why. Maybe doing the reading and paying attention all the time would help. Should probably keep in mind that these are the grades I'm going to need to apply to grad school with. Rrr.

Sweet, dog.

I have a counter now. Yes, blog*spot probably somehow provides me with that information, but I don't know how to get to it, because I didn't start the blog on blog*spot, I moved it, and it won't let me start an account over there because I've already got the one I want at blogger... anyhow. Thanks to for providing me with this. La.

Huh. Before today,

I hadn't even thought of the words "sushi" and "porn" together, but now I'm sad that I didn't get the domain name first.

Can browsers have bad attention spans? I think mine does. For example:

*knock, knock, knock* [reflection of my face in screen] hello?
"wh... what?" [i.e. turns to see what's bothering it]
"i asked you to run an advising report for my english major."
"huh? when? i don't remember that." [i.e. frowns.]
"well, just do it now, okay?"
"yeah, yeah, i'm on it."

And so forth. Jeez.

Okay, so I'm hopping on the bandwagon

and admitting that I really enjoy looking at the drawings at exploding dog. And looking around the internet, being led by the nose from one funny cool thing to the next, I realize two things. 1) I am not nearly as funny or cool as a lot of people. In fact, my funniness and coolness combined would not equal either the funniness or coolness alone of many, many people. 2) I'm not even friends with many people who are more funny or cool than I, and if I knew these people, they would probably shun me for my general lack of coolness. A couple of the funny/cool things that I've found?

the glory that is retail, and
water for the blind.

Thank you to these people for helping me to kill the time until my next class.

Stay tuned

as I take the shirt underneath off and leave the top one on. Whoo, child of the '90s tricks.

Blogger hasn't let me publish for a while. I gave it a couple gems, which it chewed up and swallowed. Nevermore, I guess. I can't remember what they said.

It rained all night, and got really cold. Because the windows were open, I'm probably never going to be able to go a whole day without blowing my nose 63 times for the rest of my life. I closed them around 6:15am, so it probably helped, but the damage was for the most part done. Big week this week. No so much for me as for my other, but it's all the same.

Aaaah, shalom and good evening to you, my worthy friends.

The minor stroke mentioned for April 25th turned out to be major. Consequently, I spent from about last Wednesday morning to about yesterday morning (early early yesterday morning) in Florida, attending a bedside and then a funeral. I won't go into details simply because I don't feel like it, but that should explain my absence.

So here I am. If only I'd returned home on a Thursday, I could be back into the swing of things by the time the next Monday would roll around. But this whole "normal week" thing is killing me.
