31: Mornings After

Things to know about me, if you and I go out:

1. The more I drink, the more I drop things. Do not trust what is normally fine motor control.
a. Large glass of saucy Brit guy's beer, two hours into the Hungarian feast/champagne buffet
b. last night, ALLLLL the things i dropped all over other people's shoes

2. I have an overwhelming tendency to take guy's stuff. Not necessarily people I like, just random shit.
a. Jake's (very large) Southie hat
b. Bob's scarf

3. I drunk text. And drunk call.
a. see Rachel
b. see anyone

4. I lose things.
a. so many earrings. so many!

5. I'd like to think I get fairly generous.

6. I also assume whatever male I'm with will pay for the drinks I keep ordering.

7. I depend a lot on my charm to get what I want
a. New Year's--> friend of Shane's
b. last night, completely blowing off the bouncer at Paul's by telling him 'I'm not going to show you my ID, but I'm 21. Do you want to know my birthday?' and then I *think* I just walked right in

8. I usually remain fairly wise-acrey. I guess the years of Bugs Bunny and Looney Toons means I'll never be able to turn it off. Ever.

9. (Amended) I love a drunken debate. The less I know on the subject, the better.
a. riling someone on the Patriots last night? I don't even know the QB's NAME!
b. Six Nations. Ireland v. Wales
Hangover Cures:

1. Lush related
Mask of Magnaminty, Too Drunk to Fuck Emotibomb, anything citrusy

2. Non-Lush related
(in no particular order) Modest Mouse, orange juice, coffee, water, Patrick Watson, lots of showers, toast, eggs, flinging myself upon someone to regale them stories of my night and have them pat my head, naps, a comfy pair of jeans (better than sweatpants)

So my computer seems to have heard all those threats I've been making against it, and decided to make a last ditch effort for freedom by regurgitating all the music I lost two years ago. Awesome is re-finding a shit ton of Sufjan Stevens and music I *did* purposely delete, though not sure why. Less awesome is all this 90s music by the Spice Girls and Brandy I needed for the 90s Trivia Day.

While an admiral gesture sir, one that is well appreciated, you're still going to be replaced, once I dredge up the necessary funds.

27: The One Who Talks To Himself on Trains

I'm in the middle of an experience not unlike Cindy on the bus up to New Hampshire- my inability to look away from another leaves me giving out my real phone number or not ignoring the calls. It's like walking past a box of puppies or someone sleeping on a grate, something inside me starts to curl and I can't go on with out nursing that feeling, coming back to it and letting all the other small emotional catastrophes around come back and join it.

Granted, I seemed to have scared away this one with honesty, but it doesn't mean the feeling- the pity, the desire to do something, to give at honest most companionship- has left.

Danger do not go Will Robinson! Danger! Danger!

My computer has been on the fritz lately. Further reason to just, you know, save up cash and buy a new one. Especially when this one starts sending up flares that say 'hey. you know how your battery works well know? well soon, it won't. you're going to have to buy a new one. thanks! ttyl!'

While I appreciate the warning, seriously? SERIOUSLY? I've had this computer less than three years and already, I've almost filled the C: Drive, it refuses to load anti-virus software, and now the battery is going to shit out? No. I say no. Good day to you sir. I say good day.

25: Eggs

I've been making omlettes and eggs like no one's business lately. It may have something to do with having work mid afternoon, so every day is brunch day, or the fact that I really enjoy making perfect eggs, even if that's much more than i love actually consuming them. That bit kind of grosses me out.

I've been planning for Children's Crusade, and by planning, I don't actually mean writing out recipes. Things I'd like to try making (possibly baking (right? right? i'm a gonna try baking sumphfing?) ). I'm excited to see how it might grow, and hopefully I can stop writing awkward Facebook messages that revolve around people giving my poor depleted bank account moneys.

Mmmm cooking. It brings me joy.

24: Resolutionaries

I've never been much of a New Year's girl, when it comes to the whole 'new year, new you' concept. Sure, like anyone I think it'd be nice to be more in shape, or drink less, or procrastinate less, but I never hold too tight to them. Maybe it's a nice by-product of the Mentalism. There are things I would like to do- write more, actually be proactive about homework instead of struggling through essays while hungover or debating how to blur a deadline, and to be more active on campus. Sure it's great being that girl with short hair and big earrings, but sometimes I'd like to do more, even if I'm not expecting BU Central-esque adventures, but that's ok.
