still funny

so, i'm giving james some advice for shopping for senior spring classes and when we get to talking about social psychology, i remember this bit. my social psychology professor was a visiting professor from U of A. sure, whatever, maybe i'm making judgements, but a couple weeks into the semester, she asked the class (mostly psych concentrators) this --

prof: has anyone in this room ever heard of the word "stigma"? raise your hand if you have.
(everyone raises hand)
prof: oh, wow! okay, do any of you know what it means?
(everyone raises hand again)
prof: whew, that is amazing! i am so impressed!

NYPD spokesman said that Ledger had an appointment for a massage at the Manhattan apartment that is believed to be his home. The housekeeper who went to let Ledger know the masseuse was there, and found him dead at 3:26 p.m, Browne said.
The Australian-born actor was an Oscar nominee for his role in "Brokeback Mountain" and has numerous other screen credits.

predicament: emoticon punctuation

when using an emoticon at the end of a sentence, do you still use proper punctuation before preceding on to the next sentence? do you just assume that you cannot use an emoticon in the middle of a sentence in between clauses?

  • i'm so fat :). do you like churros :p?
  • my cat hates me :/, but my hamster hates me even more :(.
  • lean pockets make the world the move faster =o)!

and in the case of an ellipses, it could get really confusing. i mean, are you crying or what??

  • carson daly sucks =(...ryan seacrest might be worse.

do not tell me that asian emoticons are the solution to the problem because they are vertical. as far as i'm concerned, ^_^ can go screw themselves.

also, i would've used the word conundrum instead of predicament in the title because i think it's more appropriate, but that would be so "garden state-y" of me!

i still ♥ the 90s

don't get me wrong, i understand that the 90s was a complete debacle for retail fashion. baggy jeans, attitude tees, sketchers, and the worst: mini-backpacks. but besides that, it was gold for tv shows. as em posted on my facebook,

naturally, for christmas, she got me this awesome blue barracudas shirt with this insignia:
now, if you're smart, you should know that the blue barracudas was the coolest team. the green monkeys were alright, but as long as you weren't the purple parrots, you still had an okay chance of winning.

p.s. alex mack was sooo hot!
UPDATE: i just found out that i have 2 copies of wayside school is falling down, which is #2 of the sideways stories from wayside school series. hardcore!

  • june: moved to la
  • july: started work at american apparel offices
  • aug: went tanning
  • sept: turned 22
  • oct: bought some cute shoes
  • nov:
