"friday night and going nowhere..."

"friday night and going nowhere..."
tonight's party got cancelled, so now i'm just hanging out in my pj's, working on some new stuff for the page, and writing e-mails. i'm bummed becasue i was looking forward to this party, but i guess it's for the best because today was super busy, i'm tired, and i have to work early tomorrow. i hate working the early shift.

i saw psycho ex-girlfriend about

i saw psycho ex-girlfriend about six days ago, but didn't get around to actually listening to the voicemails until last night. it was pretty freaky, and definetly funny, but i have to wonder: what kind of asshole would do this to someone who obviously has emotional and psychological issues? i mean, it's funny, but keep in mind that we're only hearing what he heard. i'd love to hear this girl's side of the story.

i'm totally addicted to this

i'm totally addicted to this italian soda... galvanina limonata soda. it's like fizzy lemonade and it's sweet but tart at the same time. i get it at trader joes and i could just drink it all day long. mmmmm. the cedrata soda is good too - also lemon but a lot sweeter. next time i head towards trader joes i think i'll also try the rasberry soda.

so, i just went to

so, i just went to buy the one book for my other class and that one was $79! and i even bought it at the book co-op! ugh.

this is insane - the

this is insane - the books for one of my classes, 15 books, was $170. one hundered and seventy dollars!!!! i figure, at least they're neat books that won't become fully useless after the quarter is over, but still, $170?? geez.

back to school tomorrow... yuck. i am not ready for vacation to be over. oh well. at least i got myself a new dress/jacket... it's suppsed to be a shirt-dress but i like it so much better as a long jacket. now i'm working on a knitted head scarf to match it. let's see if i can finish by friday so i can wear it to the party!

got a big envelope with graduation stuff in it today. it seems like only yesterday i was in high school and now i'm graduating from college?? wow. it's so incredibly expensive though... cap and gown, announcements, diploma frame, photos... i think i'll be scooting by with the bare minuimun. ;-) gotta save for my summer vacation trip!

i hate watching the oscar

i hate watching the oscar montage of all the people who have passed away in the last year. it's already a bummer to know that alec guiness or jason robards or walter matthau will naver make another movie... this is like a painful reminder.

i love lazy sundays! as

i love lazy sundays! as if sleeping in until after 12 wasn't nice enough, i'm trying out a new recipie for dinner tonight - harvest apple chicken and rice. mmmm. should be done soon, and if it's good, maybe i'll post the recipie.

this is the most beautiful

this is the most beautiful song i've heard in a long, long time. it's one of those ones that just makes your heart ache... i love the combination of the piano, violins and david gray's lovely voice. you really should listen to it, because lord knows i can't accurately describe a piece of music to save my life... but then again i'm of the school of thought that music can't really be described in words, it has to be heard to be truly appreciated and understood. so listen to this one... i promise you won't be dissapointed.

well, last night was a

well, last night was a blast! autumn and samara came over and we had a girls' night... a yummy dinner, horoscopes and fortunes, madonna and movies. it's ben a long time since i've done that. ;-)
tonight? well, since i was half asleep at work today (and still am right now), i think i'll just stay right here, scan some photos, work on my booty mix and get to bed early. mmm. bed. ;-)

my internet started acting all

my internet started acting all funky last night, and still is... i'm trying to fix it, but rrg. this sucks.

pacific ave, santa cruz, ca


all of a sudden the

all of a sudden the day is over and i didn't get nearly as much done today as i wanted to. well, i did go to the bookstore and get some new books...

i also came across a blog of someone i was talking to for a little bit last year, which is funny because i didn't know he had a blog. you can learn a lot about someone from a blog. i dunno, i guess that's why i like them. ;-)

well, it's a good thing

well, it's a good thing i went to the beach yesterday becuase today it's all grey and overcast. blaaah.

i was way excited to get my j edward orchestra cd sampler in the mail today. these guys do not dissapoint - jayson's voice has a very unique quality to it and the lyrics and harmonies are great. go check these guys out!

day trip to l.a.? now

day trip to l.a.? now this sounds cooler than cool.

i'm having tons of fun

i'm having tons of fun playing with my new pen cam, so i decided to add a new section to my blog, visuals. i'm going to try and post at least one photo every day.

side note - david gray rocks my world.

had to wait over an

had to wait over an hour in costco for my photos. i was just a tad pissed, but the photos were definetly worth it. (grin)
those photos won't be up for a few days, but you can look at my photos from translations here.

i was so tired last

i was so tired last night that i went to bed before ten. i guess that's what i get for only getting 4-5 hours of sleep two days in a row.the only downfall of going to bed really early is that i got up really early... i've been up since 8:45 and now i'm just trying to kill time before i go pick up the photos from friday night's party at the second street house.

on an unrelated note, i'm working on a mix cd over spring break - of all those funky, booty-shaking songs that you want to hear when you're at a party. i already have a few... no diggity, nothing but a g thang, baby got back, bust a move, etc. i'm looking for more. if you have any suggestions, mail me or drop me an im at ariel9779.

so, after spending tuesday night

so, after spending tuesday night at my cast party and hanging out at 99 bottles until 1am, and going to bed at 2, i was up at 6:30 so i could have breakfast and go to that hellish final yesterday. I think i did really well! i figured, if i was home i wouldn't be studying anyway, might as well go out and have fun, right?

Friday, March 16, 2001

YAY! i just finished the

YAY! i just finished the second part of my senior comprehensive. it went well, but now i have to go to work. more on this later!

i really, really hate the

i really, really hate the books i'm studying for my senior exit exam tomorrow.
masked performance
, the dictionary of theater anthropology, history of the bauhaus, commedia dell'arte... i mean, they're all interesting things, but the books are so *boring*.....

study groups are fun, but

study groups are fun, but almost always dissolve into random, mildly hysterical conversations having NOTHING to do with the subject you're supposed to be studying. tonight was no exception, although we did get a lot done... all the hard questions, which is what matters, right?

uuugh, today was a long day. sleep time.

wheeee! phish-libs!

wheeee! phish-libs!

so, i'm trying to decide

so, i'm trying to decide whether or not i should get my own domain. i'm doing a bunch of research and it's all very confusing... and rather expensive!! anyway, i was thinking maybe would be good.
get it?? bug... net... ok, i know. bad joke. ;-)

holy moly - i'm actually

holy moly - i'm actually up on time for my 8 am class today! i think this is some sort of miracle....

i'm totally enamored with destiny's

i'm totally enamored with destiny's child. i bought their most recent album a few weeks ago, and then yesterday i watched mtv making the video for their next single, survivor. dude, these girls totally rock!! not to mention they have really cool outfits. ;-)

ok, once again i'm trying

ok, once again i'm trying out netscape 6. i can't figure out why it's won't automatically import all my stuff.... it did last time. now it won't let me get mail and i'm annoyed again and this close from deleting it again. blah. this blows.

wow, it's really easy to

wow, it's really easy to get sucked into emode if you don't pay attention. at least the results of their tests are somewhat accurate... let's see... my flavor is peppermint, i'm a golden retreiver, i'm a subtle flirt, and my super power is time travel. fun!

so, i just watched bittersweet

so, i just watched bittersweet motel for the first time, and, wow, it was just what i needed for my phish withdrawal. although i do tend to agree with what's been said about the movie - too much of trey, not enough of the other guys, and the fan interveiws were totally lame. on the whole, though, i loved it. page was really high in the mix and that was nice.

there is nothing like the

there is nothing like the first cherry slurpee of the season. wish you were here to share it with me, d...

i am very, very excited

i am very, very excited about the mockingbird foundation phish tribute album. i mean, check this out...

"contributors include michael ray and cosmic krewe, merl saunders and his funky friends, little feat, jimmy buffett, arlo guthrie and xaviar, gordon stone trio (with russ lawton, from the trey solo tour), amfibian (featuring tom marshall), son seals and rebecca stone, dj logic with john scofield, the tom tom club, the boredoms, lake trout, hot tuna, and fred (the international champion barbershop quartet), plus members of los lobos, the grateful dead, jefferson airplane, pavement, and more!"

actually, you can go to the dj logic page and listen to his rendition of cars, trucks, buses, which is spectacular!!

on top of the fact that it has an amazing lineup, all the proceeds go to charity. coool.

oooh, having a dinner party

oooh, having a dinner party tonight! i can't wait... i love having people over. look out martha stewart!

there is just something so

there is just something so wonderful about a freshly made bed with new sheets and a soft-as-silk duvet cover. it's calling to me... i'm not sure if i can resist much longer. :-)

what a nice way to

what a nice way to spend an afternoon.... a walk downtown, a jamba juice and a sandwich from zoccoli's for lunch, and watching the first episode of the lone gunmen. if only i didn't have to go to class again...

a discovery was made tonight....

a discovery was made tonight.... anime is better than sleep. I'm not a particular fan of anime, but the vision of escaflowne is awesome. i'm hooked... i have to see the rest!!

i've been having really bizarre

i've been having really bizarre dreams lately. not bizarre in the sense that strange things happen, actually, the stuff that happens is usually fairly normal. it's the people in my dreams that are strange. for example, last night: two guys from high school that i haven't seen since high school, a girl i lived next door to over 10 years ago, my two best friends, a few people from the show i'm working on right now, and my godmother, of all people. it's such a bizarre combination that i can't even begin to figure out what it means.

i really hope that whoever

i really hope that whoever decided that slinging hay all over the mainstage someday can understand how i'm feeling right now. for some reason, last night, instead of just making me sniffly, the hay decided to inflict me with the worst asthma i've ever had in my life. normally i just get it when i've been running to the bus stop or whatnot (hence the title exercise-induced asthma) but right now every breath takes effort and i'm terrified that i'm going to have an asthma attack or something. stupid fucking hay.

so, i'm learning how to

so, i'm learning how to knit. i feel all domestic.... but i have an obsession with scarves and i can't stand to buy them at the mall. why, you ask? because a scarf that costs $42 at the gap i could make for no more than $6. rip-off, anyone?
