- " go check it out, it's still fresh and liquid"
- "For further explanation, the turd is roughly the size of a small squirrel."
- " a SQUIRREL??? that whole f*&%ing thing is the size of a squirrel!!"
- "Given the dispersion and probably trajectory of the stuff, I think it had to be a larger animal. Small animals just don't have that much spray factor."
- "there was a LOT of this poop"
- "very liquidy"
too good/bad to be true.

- handsome (makes no sense)
- mushroom (same)
- awry (as a kid, i read this as awe-ree)
- corps (always read this wrong in my head)
trough and lozenge tie for the worst word ever award.
do you know who she is? (hint: she is not me 4 years from now.) i don't know what her name is, but on pcgamess.com, it says she's one of the best professional starcraft players in korea, which probably means she's one the best in the entire universe. now i just need to find a country where they live and breathe 'alchemy' on yahoo games. and since we all know that i'm the alchemy champion (board cleared in 1:19, impressive i know), i would easily become an obsession there!
on saturday, blizzard entertainment officially announced the current development of starcraft 2 at thier worldwide invitational held in seoul (obviously). according to the AP, an estimated 35% of south korea's population is considered "gamers," many of them very familiar with starcraft and several of them now dead from game-addiction/overplaying (i'm totally serious). here is a brief timeline of what to expect from now:
- may 2007: blizzard announces starcraft 2 in seoul. south korea implodes with joy. blizzard does not announce specific release date.
- june 2007: korean government funds project to create time machine to teleport koreans into future, find out release date, and possibly procure a copy of starcraft 2.
- later 2007: mission fails. several koreans killed in the attempt. handful of anxiety/depression suicides also occur from failure to wait until next year. national holiday instituted to commemorate dead.
- sometime 2008: blizzard finally announces release date and price. koreans implode with more joy. release date is instituted as national holiday called "starcraft 2 release date."
- shortly after in 2008: starcraft 2 released. koreans implode even with more joy. seoul hosts starcraft parade on this glorious holiday.
- later 2008: consequential deaths follow from game-addiction. tragic news for the country.
- 2009: 8 year old korean boy hailed as new starcraft champion and prodigy. koreans elect him as president. south korea renamed to "terran confederacy" (or something like it).
- 2013: starcraft prodigy-king-president dies from game-addiction. koreans mourn, institute new holiday in his name.
am i going anywhere with this? i have a 20 page paper to write on farm subsidies due in 2 days or something. i'm just going to draw 20 pictures of cows and pigs and turn that in.

Only one top gerbil? Gnaw, they're all Best In Show.
"It's the equivalent to the Westminster Kennel Club in there!" Judith Block from New York City said about the American Gerbil Society's 6th annual New England Gerbil Show. More than 200 people and their 77 show-gerbils squeezed, scurried and gnawed their way through the crowded Lexington Room of the Bedford Best Western last Saturday.
Braving bad weather and even worse directions, the Blocks
made it to the hotel on Thursday. It was worth it - they picked up their brand
new 11-week-old Gerbil pups, Pete and Guthrie.
Block says her special gerbil was Phoebe. "She would chew cardboard into sculptures," she said. "She had an artistic soul."
Amateur gerbilists took part in Pet Class competitions. Best Gnawer, Most Adventurous and Cutest Face were only some of the categories open to these gerbil competitors.
Tracy Kukkonen's Mochi took first place in Most Adventurous.
"He climbs on everything," Kukkonen said.
By the end of the day, Renee and Tom Arena and their son Justin Salmons from Waltham were on edge. It was a nail-biter as Buffy defended her crown for Best White Belly, while Blackie competed for the first time in the Best Color category.
It was looking grim for Blackie. Judges discovered a minor eye injury.
"They're in there splitting whiskers," Arena said.
In the end, Blackie took second place in her category. The Blocks pup, Pete, took third in the Spotted category. Block wasn't upset that Guthrie didn't place.
"All my children are special," she said.

- find a band who is touring the country on the road, playing a show in boston soon, and returning to california in a couple weeks.
so, yesterday morning i parted with oscar eliot and he is currently traveling across the county on the pretty girls make graves final tour with moonrats. today, he's in nyc and if he's like me, he should be having a blast. by the time we're reunited again, he will be the most well-traveled gerbil in the world. i'm so proud of him.
- 2 dresses
- 2 tops
- 4 sunglasses
the sunglasses were non-designer, so don't freak out.
- minimum age requirement was 17. i turned 17 senior year and this only gave me 1 year to even possibly take advantage of this marvelous opportunity. lame.
- minimum weight was something like 95-100 lbs. in high school, i always hovered around the high-80s (dairy-free, pescatarian diets really did something). i was planning on gaining weight in college anyway, so i thought i could finally get my juice box and humanitarian sticker then. i was over the detentions and extra credit, and their shirts were always too big for me anyway.
- sounds crazy, but i think drawing blood into a tube is totally fun. although getting shots are a different story.
then, in college, red cross raised the minumum weight to 110 lbs.! i'm a steady low 90 and the only time i would ever hit 110 is when im pregnant. and apparently, red cross doesn't think its a good idea to donate blood when there's another person growing inside of you. so, it looks like i'm never going to be able to swagger around with one of those stickers. bummer.

if you say anything about richard gere or anus, i will smash you.
here are my ideas so far:
- wear a big coat/jacket with an oversized inside pocket and without a shirt underneath. that way, when they say "take off your coat, miss," i can say, "i'm naked under, do i need to prove it to you?"
- put him in a small custom made drawstring pouch and tie the laces around my leg. and wear a poofy 19th century petticoat.
- feed him nyquil (without killing him) and put him in the pocket of my hoodie.

irene, i found your comment to be extremely offensive. how can you disparage an entire race like that? in the future, please use the correct terminology: orientals is preferable, though chinamen is also acceptable.

BTW, you won't guess who dropped by literally FIVE minutes after you guys left... Rachel Ray! they shot another judging scene with her and the head HUDS dude. guess it pays to stick around.

according to the weekly forecast, it looks like i'll be responsible on saturday.
Wednesday, April 18, 2007
- 3 t-shirts
- 2 dress shirts
- 2 bags
- 2 necklaces
- denim miniskirt
- gray snakeskin belt
- red watch (i don't even wear watches!)
- pair of blue suede boots
- pair of boyshort undies
that is 16 new things i don't really need. someone needs to take my credit card, shred it, and throw the debris in the charles.
and i lost the school's camera from the VES dept, as well as the flash attachment. i also lost my keys. and i broke my sunglasses, found a tear in my new dress, and i am still missing my glasses.
i blame it on the weather.

on a more realistic note, today was my turn in history of harvard section to give a presentation. of course, the topic i chose was on serial killers and homicides at harvard. my 5 minute limit presentation actually became a 10 minute presentation because it was that awesome. i also left everyone frightened...i think half of them think i'm sort of a freak. in case anyone is curious, here are the 4 cases i covered:
- murder of dr. parkman by colleague dr. webster at the medical school in 1849. webster dismembered his corpse and hid all body parts in his chem lab.
- murder of dunster student trang ho by her roommate sinedu tadesse in 1995. tadesse stabbed ho 45 times. this was a wake-up call to harvard's terrible mental health services since tadesse frequently sought psychiatric care and never received it.
- psychologist dr. henry murray's stress/torture experiments on ted kaczynski (unabomber). also, harvard's strange gen ed curriculum that disillusioned young kaczynski's view of the world.
- grad student alexander pring-wilson stabbed a kid to death in front of pizza ring 3 years ago. yawn.
today, i got my final email reminder saying that if i don't come to the core office to fill out my language citation/foreign cultures exemption application within the next two hours, i WILL NOT graduate. i'm going to wait for another hour and see if they send me another email.
just kidding, i'm going to urban outfitters and then i'll remember to drop by there before they close sometime.

- i was at stevie wonder/james earl jones/reverend gomes' house. (i can't remember who it was specifically.)
- i bought 2 pairs of really awesome boots and another pair of distressed brown leather oxfords all for less than $50.
- i went to paris, but it was in mexico.
- my TF sent me an email saying that i didn't have to worry about my assignments for the day and told me to enjoy my vacation.
so, moral of the story: don't confuse your dreams for reality!

- berry kix
- corn pops
- captain crunch (regular)
- frosted flakes
- team cheerios
- lucky charms
- cookie crisp (although this has become worse over the years)
- waffle crisp
honey bunches of oats and apple jacks are also good, but they didn't make the top 10 cut.
i generally dislike most commercials (eg: head on, burger king, dewarism, etc.) and i don't know if many of you have seen the one for acuvue contact lenses for astigmatism, but if it wasn't for those blonde twins, then i really wouldn't be so excited every time it came on. if i didn't already have astigmatism, i would still buy anything they would sell. if they tried selling me dead animals i would probably buy a million bags of them.
"which one has the astigmatism?"
i don't care, i'm just sad that there's only two of you.
i logged onto amazon today to view the package tracker and this is what i read.

SPRINGFIELD MA US
Estimated arrival: April 19, 2007
APRIL 19?! apparently, my camera is walking itself from springfield to cambridge. 2 more weeks is way too long.
- my retainers
- my glasses
- my inhaler
- a value pack bottle of lactaid
- a value pack bottle of generic claritin
i really am in need of all these items! please, if you find any of these floating around your common room or wherever, let me know. my nerd level is slowly suffering! being cool is so hard. i don't think i can handle this much longer.
(i'm being really serious though, i actually need to find those things.)
and an awesome awesome site:
speaking of websites and...the internet...and hence, myspace? it seems that every band i had some ties with is becoming rather big! hellogoodbye w/drive-thru, melee w/warner bros., takota w/def jam, chester french on perezhilton.com, bleeding through in the last kiss, etc.
so, if you're in a band, just play at one of the following places:
- my senior prom
- my 19th birthday party (which i didn't really attend because i was in the hospital)
- my freshman dorm room
- lunchtime at my high school
...and you'll be huge!
