I am listening to a play by P.J. Wodehouse, an author that I have wished to read. Comedy, which I'm all for, of course. It's a little wierd because the guy is narrating and acting at the same time.

I am mentally exhausted from this day. All because I decided that today was the day to order my computer. Which computer? Should I pay for extra memory? Hard-drive space? the stupid extended warranty? etc.?
all this with a little 3-year-old running in and out of my room insisting "I need help!" (with the train set, that is) or "I want the ball!" or simply taking things like y-connectors, staplers, flashlights, and other random objects that are not appropriate for one of her age off my desk.

So, i ordered a macbook (and an ipod to go with it, i am afraid) ... the fact being that 4 of the 5 GB on my zen micro is full already, with very few of my actual cd's on it.

I keep getting headaches, possibly from dehydration. oops.

today I helped mrs. bonifaci clean out her freezer... basically, i spent three hours chipping ice off metal shelves while trying to keep the towels and pans in place to catch all the melting ice and water. it was.... .... ... probably comical, in retrospect. Not yet, but give it a week and i may laugh. especially considering I'm going back on wednesday. "to garden?" "no, I have another freezer in the garage" D'OH!!!

in the game of life, i found an iceberg while yachting and got rich of the ice cubes. in real life i got rich off spending the rest of my days chipping ice off freezer shelves with a plastic spatula.
"oh, the ironing is delicious"

Oh, it was nice to swim in the ocean!
I seriously can't remember the last time I went swimming. Maybe in Norway? That's pretty outrageous - that would mean it's been a year. A bit hard to imagine. I must just be forgetting when I went.
I'm really tired. I almost feel like I'm getting sick, but not really. if anything, just a cold. We'll see.

I really feel like going through all my stuff in my room... cleaning up piles and getting rid of stuff, keeping stuff, organizing, etc. But then I look at my room and get overwhelmed. "maybe later..."
Ah, my days of procrastination have truly not left me.

I'm really beginning to worry about this whole room mate business. I have really grown accustomed to having some quiet, alone time. I guess that's maybe what libraries are for?

It's hard to talk about college when it wasn't really your top choice. "Why did you pick Oberlin?" Is it too blunt to say "process of elimination"? Whatever, I know it's a good school and I know I will probably really enjoy my time there, but still, I'm sick of awkward college conversations with random adults.

And now I have to clean the dishes (grumble grumble)

just kidding, but on the otherhand and in no way kidding, it's really hot.

2 days until I find out my room mate and dorm and all, I do believe. I have an ominous feeling.

So I think I actually burned my feet on the hot, hot pavement. So that meant more foot baths and all that good stuff. It is good, ja.

I'm off to that town again, that P.T. town dealie, to go shopping with mi madre (what?! tourist!) and eat all that good food, visit old friends ... all that good stuff. And consulting a real estate agent about putting our house on the market.

our beautiful house, the one I was born in and grew up in and all that good stuff. I actually don't mind. I'm okay with it, since I've had 10 years to grow away from that life and move on and all.

Now that I think about it, I had a ton of adult "friends" when I was little. Not that they weren't my friends but... There was Pierr the renter and then friend (and book illustrator); Helga, my mom's German friend who would take me out to dinner and have game nights with me; Jack the renter who also knew some German and was really cool but then moved away; more renters... ; hmm. something to think about.

Anyway, back tomorrow.

It's amazing what a week of going to bed before 11 and getting up at 8:30 will do for you. Just in that I feel rested. Except today, of course, I got up at 12. That's how it is, that's how it is.

In any case, I was excited to get two paychecks last week... pretty big ones, too, but that won't be a regular occurence. I should be working again today...

Last night we were up in Port Townsend again. It was Elye's graduation party, since he finally officially graduated. It was much more fun than last time I was up there... Everyone was old friends and we played lawn games and ate good good food. But mama had to go to work today and I had no extra car so we made our way back home before the party was really over. Oh well.

I still want to go camping up there or a day trip or something. waterfront pizza, elevated ice cream, dogs-a-foot, sandy sandy beaches, good toy stores, lots of memories of childliness, etc. any body up for it? although I can't guarantee memories of childiness, I guess.

Sleep? [Jul. 11th, 2006|05:17 pm]
Last night was my first night sleeping at Mrs. Bonifaci's house.... It was a little strange, if only because I went to bed at a reasonable hour and got up at 8:30. So I slept a lot AND got up at a time one could call "morning".

Yay for going to see movies... Except I keep not realizing how late the showings actually are. For An Inconvenient Truth it was even later because of Jay Inslee's talk, which I really appreciated but it meant I didn't really get to talk much with my friend who was staying at our house that night... And for Pirates of the Carribean it was just a long movie.

I read some movie reviews for The Pirates - one that said it was really bad and one that said it was really good. I could see both of their perspectives. That's why I am bad at determining whether I like movies or not. I think I liked the first Pirates movie better, since I thought the Davy Jones stuff was a bit overdramatic, him playing his organ and all. This movie made me feel really giddy though - I was a little embarassed. I kept giggling at really silly slapstick stuff. But hey, that's good once in a while. ^__^

Today our friends who moved to Atlanta came to visit for a breakfast/brunch... We ate so much food and it was really fun to see them. It did mean that I was playing with the three-year-old daughter a bunch, but it was fun to see her again, so what the heck. Plus, since I've seen her last she grew up a lot - much more reasoning skills and she talks much more, too. As I said, it was fun.

Italy won the World Cup!!! I think it was good because this one French player did a really dirty/mean thing to an Italian player when they were in a time out. They must have been bantering each other or something, but he turned around and head butted him in the chest. It was really shocking. The ref didn't see it but the people in the stands were going nuts and the linesmen saw it so he got kicked out. That's just so... dirty. I don't know. I think you should respect the game more than that if you're at that level. We watched the overtime and shootout. It was really close... Exciting!

Yesterday was my second time at the rotary auction. I wasn't very ambitious... I went to the book/game/cds section, in the gym, and that's about it. But I got a Japanese dictionary (not japanese-english, mind you.. just japanese), Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, a kid's vocab book in German (hoorah) and a Janosch story on CD (also in German, but the cutest, funniest thing in the world!!)... mi madre got a fruit cookbook. She said going to the auction was her gift to me because she hates it so much; "sensory overload! sensory overload!"

But I think I can actually decipher some things in the dictionary. As in, the words are not in kanji so I can read them, and then it generally describes them in more basic words, or in context. So I can get some of it. Maybe.

Last night I went to Improv for my mom's friend's birthday. She illustrates childrens books (they're really cool) and she used to be my cool adult friend when I was little. So it was interesting.

So I reacted to my polio vaccine - a big red itchy splotch on my arm, still today, and I think that's why I was feeling "under the weather..." Headache and tiredness and whatnot.

ROom Is SOOOOooooOooo dirty. And that's all. Oh, but I actually discovered a nice tanktop I had forgotten about because of my lack of laundry.

Yuck [Jun. 30th, 2006|06:48 pm]
I feel under the weather. Like an umbrella. Or a balloon. Or the entire planet (minus that bit that is over the weather)...


In other news, I've completely run out of laundry and I feel like I'm living out of a box.

My mom wanted to go out to dinner.. To the pub. I asked if I could go there, being under 21 and all. She said yes. She was wrong. We ended up going to Doc's Marina Grill and I saw Kelsey Devereaux on her first night of waitressing!
...I don't think I could ever be a waitress. Also saw Jacob Friemark, Erin Clune, and some other people who graduated a while ago whose names elude me.

Yay for diploma!

I did so much paper work and shit today. Stupid college. It was interesting to do the student loan interview thingies online... meaning I have to read a bunch of stuff and answer multiple choice questions to make sure I read it. Very funny... like doing SAT practice or something. But actually the SAT/WASL reading stuff is usually pretty interesting. Until they ask "how is the author feeling as they are writing this?" and "what did the author most likely have for lunch?"

ahh... standardized testing. hats off to you.

[Current Location |In the cool house, out of the hot sun]

So I got lotsa user pics and I like them. Yay! Makes me happy. I think my favorite one right now is giraffe-in-boat. But maybe I should try some of the others? Later.

So, my time in the land of sendtown ports was a little strange. Boring, for one... I spent a lot of time reading and watching really bad movies. Elye is sick with fever and such so he was laying on couch and sleeping a lot of the time.

But also, there were some girlies that visited while I was there and wanted to have a "naked hot-tub party". Not my thing, not with childhood friend. no no no. But that didn't happen, so awkwardness somewhat averted.

Also, I went to pick strawberries with Sylvie (Elye's mom) and some of their neighbors who I also know pretty well. It was fun. SOOOO many strawberries. and organic, too. yay. Now I'm back. but I stayed up too late last night, resulting in sleeping really late. yuck.

Summertime! [Jun. 23rd, 2006|12:08 pm]
And the living is easy...

I worked six hours in the last two days... actually much less than I would have liked. But yesterday me mummy made me come in to Seattle to kick off the college shopping. I got a... hamper. And a nailbrush. Almost an alarm clock, but no. Oh, and two black cups for the tea drinking, ja.

Then to the symphony (sooooo sleepy)
apparently it was MAHLER and BRAHMS. or something. I'm not so sure on the brahms.

Then home. Then read Ranma... damn that addictive substance. I braved the library YA section, though. I'm sure I will never step inside that enclosed area, but I can access the outside shelves, if only quickly and discreetly.

Also checked out "Art of Howl's Castle" which was pretty cool.. in the back there is a script of the whole movie. Sadly, it's the English version, with stupid Billy Crystal etc. etc. pardon my resentment.

Today is up to The Port of the Sent Town to see the Elye kid who went missing for over a year. And is now back with a broken ankle? Except maybe not broken, but just badly injured? We'll see. Oh yeah, and to say goodbye to Chusana, who replaced Elye in the Bliss household. I wonder if german exchange student Julie already went home. That would be sad, but I guess she has and I don't know what I would do about it anyway.
ha! a legit post.
