I'm very indecisive. I'm not sure how much longer I'll keep this particular LJ up and running.

Im reverting to a formerly private LJ name I've had for a while now, and you're welcome to read it.

Never gargle with Listerine if you think it makes a funny noise. [15 Feb 2005|12:51pm]
[ mood | calm ]

Yesterday was crazy. I was *still* sick, so I skipped my two classes and slept in. I went to see the nurse and she gave me a strep test, which turned up negative (thank God), and she told me the most important thing for me to do was to make myself comfortable. I asked her if that was not the exact same thing they tell cancer patients who are dying. She looked at me like I was an asshole...I suppose my sense of humor wasn't exactly appreciated.

Ellen offered to take me to Wal-Mart to pick up various "comfort" things...i.e. lozenges, throat spray, and Chex Mix. I also picked up Listerine, which is what the nurse told me to gargle with if I didn't want to with salt water...

...So last night before I went to bed I went to the bathroom to gargle. Kelsey was in there with me. I started to gargle, and I realized that the noise it made was really funny (glurg glurg glurg) so I started to laugh- TERRIBLE idea. I spit Listerine all over the mirror (those of you who live on CD 1st floor, smell the mirror - it's minty fresh now), and Kelsey started laughing so hard that when she threw her head back, it hit the paper towel dispenser, which only made ME laugh harder. Jess walked in to see the wet mirror, Kelsey holding her head, and the both of us laughing.

I felt a lot better when I went to bed, but that didn't last long. My throat started hurting again, I couldn't sleep, and I just generally felt like shit, so I called my aunt. I know, stupid idea. She may not love or even like me, but she's family and she offered to let me come over to her house. Her housekeeper (and my good friend) Pauline took care of me all morning, God bless her. She even made breakfast.

I had an epiphany this morning. I know why I've been sick so long...my sickness has been exacerbated by my allergies, and just when I think I'm well I'm not. Oh well...I'll be back in the dorms tonight (and at the Zeta meeting), and even if I'm on my deathbed tomorrow morning, I'm going to class.

Well, ya got to think with a girl like that any love at all is better than nothin'. [12 Feb 2005|02:00am]

Recap:

Last night
I ate baklava out of a cup (i.e. all they had in the Cellar in which to place it) with Erin as we talked about guys and our past relationships and we watched White Chicks...yeah, it was stupid, but hanging out with Erin is always fun. I was in bed by around 1:30.

Tonight
Kacey, Ellen, Kelsey, and I went to the art opening on campus to score some free food and a cultural credit before heading to Sonic (I practically insisted that we go because they have sweetheart shakes this time of year and I hadn't had one yet and they're going to stop selling them the day after V-day), where we got some amazingly good food (i.e. shakes and tots), with the exception of Kelsey, who got some chili-cheese thingy that had onions in it. She bitched about those onions for a long time, and for some reason it was really quite funny. Nothing really spectacular happened (with the exception of Kacey breaking the Oh Shit! handle in the back of Ellen's car; ask her about that!), but there was much randomness and we all laughed so hard that we cried. (Our eye makeup, however, was still blissfully intact.) I think tonight was one of those you-had-to-have-been-there-to-appreciate-the-humor sort of things. We also went to Wal-Mart, where I bought some very sexy pink lounge pants, which I promptly put on when we got back. Kacey and El came into my room and we watched The Notebook. It was pretty good. Afterwards El and I decided that we weren't tired, and we were hungry, so we went (El in her pajama pants and me in my newly-acquired pink lounge pants [and my glasses!]) to IHOP, the one off of Lakeshore, but it was crazily crowded so we road-tripped it down to ghetto Irondale. They were out of the Swedish Crepes I love so much (daaaaaamn), but I did have some decent strawberry pancakes, and El and I talked about guys, former best friends, high school, and other random things. On the way back we started talking about Matchbox 20 (I dunno how we got on that topic), so we busted out some classic MB20 (Yourself or Someone Like You, only one of my fave CDs EVER) and talked about that and sang along to it. Neither of us like the new-school MB20, but the old-school MB20 (and Tabitha's Secret, i.e. the band before they were known as MB20). We have crazy things in common...El is awesome. All in all, it was a GREAT night, I'm tired, and I've only been back for like 15 minutes so I should probably go brush my teeth and go to bed. I have to take Kelsey by the bank tomorrow (before noon, when they close)...yay, fun times.

I love you all. Oh, and Kacey, if it's possible, I like you even more every time we hang out. And to everybody...I know it sounds like I've been kissing a lot of ass lately, but this is really how I feel. Y'all are awesome.

Last night was AWESOME. [27 Jan 2005|01:21pm]
[ mood | loved ]

I feel so loved by the girls on my hall.

Yesterday afternoon, Ellen, Kim, Jess, and I went to see In Good Company and out to eat at Chick-fil-A. When we got back, I was really tired even though it was only about 7:00. I went back to my room and started While You Were Sleeping. The beginning credits were on when my friend Britney knocked on the door, laptop in hand. She asked if she could come in and work on a paper, so I agreed. We listened to country music and giggled while she wrote about Islam culture. I named her paper - "From Muhammad to Madonna" - it was about the differences between our culture and theirs. After a while Britney's roommate, Kelsey, came in and we started talking about guys and what we were like in high school. It was awesome, but I started getting hungry again, so I wanted to go to The Cellar to get a Snickers. Ellen and Kelsey offered to come, but Kelsey was like, "I'm going to upstage you." (I was wearing a light green shirt and black sweatpants - i.e. my trademark on laundry day and El was wearing an old shirt and sweatpants; Kelsey was looking gorgeous, of course.) So El and I pretended to get mad and decided to tickle Kelsey and then pick her up. I was supposed to get her arms, but I was laughing so hard that I couldn't pick her up and she fell - smack - on the carpet. Ouch. I felt bad, but we were all laughing soooooooooooooooo hard...

Post-chocolate intake:

My friend Jess decided to download AIM on her computer. I got this idea that I wanted to be the first person to send her an IM, so I ran back into my room (right across the hall), sent one, and then ran back into hers. I ran and jumped on her bed, which I thought was flush with the wall. It wasn't. The thing moved like a foot and went FWUMP against the wall, and it scared the hell out of me!!!! She and I started laughing and I fell off the bed (brillant, Kelsey and I BOTH now have ass bruises...).

Forty-five minutes later, we were listening to Gavin DeGraw and I was randomly dancing, on an obvious chocolate high. I called Brittany...it was like a drunk dial except I was just hyper. I still had several people in my room, so I decided to check my facebook. It said that my friend Matt was "in a relationship," and I was like, why didn't he tell me? So I ran to his room (our dorms are connected)...anyway, NEVER run barefoot in a guy's dorm. I stepped in something wet and had to pour Germ-X on my feet and rub them together. Anyway, Matt wasn't there so I called his cell phone. It was 12:15 a.m., and he answered. He's not dating anyone...facebook is wrong. I didn't feel stupid, though, I still felt reallyyyyyy hyper. I started dancing around and singing to Gavin, and Ellen started IMing people on my computer saying things like, "I'm a slut" and "I've had sex with Daniel many different times; we very much enjoy the kama sutra." Hahahahaha. I wanted to go tell my friend Britney that Ellen was doing that, but El grabbed my wrist and held me. Then I realized that I really had to pee (which happens when I laugh too hard...seriously!). I ran to the bathroom, and Ellen caught up with me, and we collapsed right outside the bathroom laughing, and then I had to get up really quickly to pee.

Brian, I'm sorry if you witnessed anything too crazy last night.

Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart... [26 Jan 2005|07:56am]
[ mood | accomplished ]

Naught be all else to me, save that thou art.

Pedro rocked my socks off last night. Shannon, you're the best non-Daniel concert buddy ever...and you know why. ;)

The first song they played was "Of Minor Prophets and Their Prostitute Wives," which is the first song I heard by Pedro, and upon listening to it I realized that I loved them. So...yay! And they played "Rapture" and this guy beside me was singing, it was so cute. It was the only song I noticed him singing...probably because it was about sex. But hey.

Oh my sweet rapture, I hear Jesus and the angels singing...

Oh! I didn't tell y'all that I went out to dinner with Ellen, Kacey, Kelsey, Emily, and Kate at New York Pizza. I love my fellow Cullen Daniel 1st floor girls...y'all make me smile. :)

I saw one of the girls from my Interim at the concert. She looked right at me, and I wasn't sure if I should smile or wave or whatever because I don't even know her, but she just gave me a weird look and turned around.

Shannon and I both bought t-shirts, and we look really hot in them. I just thought you should know. I also bought an out-of-print Pedro CD. The only real reason I bought it is that it has "Be Thou My Vision" on it...that's my favorite hymn, and I knew I would enjoy Pedro's rendition of it. I was right. After Shannon and I got back (and had our little picnic of Wendy's on my floor) and she left the room, I played it. It was beautiful. (By the way, no, Pedro is NOT a "Christian" band, though they do sing about God quite a bit...)

I have only one more thing to say about Shannon, haha, so here goes...we talked A LOT last night. Thank you sooo much. I really felt like you cared about what I was saying, and that means more to me than I can tell you. She told me that I have too much drama in my life, and she's so right. So, to someone who needs to hear this, I'm tired of competing for your friendship. I give up. I hate that I'm "giving up" in a sense, and losing your friendship, but I get to keep my sanity. (Oh, and a Pedro song comes to mind here..."Second Best," anyone???)

Brian, thanks for indulging me in a little conversation last night/early this morning. I appreciate that.
