john mayer

so, ever since buying his album at target almost a week ago, i've become ridiculously obsessed with john mayer. holy moly, this guy is absolutely amazing. i've been listening to the album on repeat for days, and i think 3x5 is one of the most beautiful songs i've ever heard.
seriously, i could write a million eloquent words but they couldn't compare to just listening to his music. go buy the cd. if you doubt me, listen to the clips on his website. then go get the cd.

go now.

so, 26 hits today. either i'm really popular, or blogsnob really works. i'd tend to go with the latter.

hey everyone, welcome to! i've been working my butt off on this site for weeks, and i'm so happy to have finally finished it! ;-)
so take a look around, and please please please let me know if you find any broken links, missing images, etc. i've been looking at this for so long that those things are just slipping past me. (it's like when you're writing a paper... at some point you just stop seeing the typos!)

oh, and don't forget to leave comments! i love comments!

i guess that makes <i>me</i> the weakest link.

dammit dammit dammit dammit dammit!

i forgot to watch the weakest link tonight.

i don't normally watch that pathetic show (the host pisses me off), but mr. wil wheaton was on it and i wanted to see how he did.

friday five

friday five:

1. What was the last book you read? Did you enjoy it? well, right now i'm reading anna karinena by tolstoy, and i'm loving it! the last book i finished was a heartbreaking work of staggering genius by dave eggers and i totally enjoyed it - he has a really unique style or writing that i really liked.

2. What's your most favorite book of all time? god, what a hard question!! i think i'd have to go with the bridge across forever by richard bach. love that book.

3. What's the worst book you've ever read? A portrait of the artist as a young man, by james joyce. reading that book was worse than getting your teeth pulled, it was so bad.

4. What book that you've read would you most like to see adapted into a movie? probably she's come undone by wally lamb.

5. How do you plan to spend your weekend? hanging with friends, writing papers, working, doing homework. oh, and maybe a little shopping.

happy thanksgiving everyone!

i've just returned from my annual family thanksgiving... dinner at the beach. it's non-traditional and a little weird, but always ends up being fun.
the best thing about thanksgiving is that we eat early... like, at 3 pm. this is good because right about when er starts, i'll hop up and make myself a hot turkey sandwich... the only appropriate way to end thanksgiving.
and becasue i'm a dork, here are the things i'm thankful for.

- my family. they're slightly dysfunctional, but what family isn't? they are great and they really take care of me. i love them.

- my housemate. before she moved in, i had a pretty lousy track record... only one of the four previous housemates/roomies was a tolerable human being. i've very very thankful that i live with someone that i can stand. and i like her too! ;-)

- the internet. sometimes i take it for granted, but it really is one of the coolest things ever.

- broadband. this makes the internet coolness level rise about 100 times.

- school. i may be bitching about finals in a few days, but i know i'm really lucky to have a college education.

- friends. i'm lucky, because my friends tend to stick around for a long time (case in point - me and donna have been best friends since 1993.) the new friends (hi debbie) are wonderful, and i hope they will soon join the crowd of 'old friends'.

- music. i love live music. i love that i get to go see live music on a regular basis. i miss phish, but i'm thankful that i got to see them 11 times... and hopefully i'll see them again in the near future.

- freedom of speech. not to get jingoistic, but i am very thankful for the fact that i can sit here in front of this here computer and write whatever the hell i want and put it up for people to read. even with all it's flaws, america is a pretty fucking cool place, and i'm glad i live here.

ok, that's enough of that. time to go set up my christmas tree and watch friends. ;-) hope everyone had a great day!

this past weekend was apperently

this past weekend was apperently the my quarterly "support the arts" weekend.
friday i drove to oakland with debbie and john to see dark star orchestra. we left the concert at 1:30 am only to dicover that my car has been locked into a parking garage. thank goodness for jared and chris (two of the most awesome guys ever).
saturday i went to see a show up on campus that i did publicity design for, then i went directly to the catalyst to see the disco biscuits. i've missed them the last three times they've played here, and i don't think i'll be doing that again. i was nearly falling over from exhaustion and i couldn't bring myself to leave before the show was over. it was that good. ;-)
sunday i got to see ssc's winter show, gretel and hansel. it was a great show... and i even got to see part of it again today (the author is one of my professors, and she took us all to see the school show that was happeneing at the same time as our class.
needless to say, after that weekend, i'm really looking forward to a fairly laid back holiday. yay for thanksgiving... no school and some damn good food. ;-)

yet another late night working

yet another late night working on my play. you'd think i'd learn by now that waiting until the last minute on stuff like this is such a bad bad bad idea.

i checked out colergenics tonight

i checked out colergenics tonight (thanks to lovely lowercase laura for the link) and i am amazed.

You are longing for some love and affection at this time ... not that you have been deprived of tender loving care ... but there are times when everyone needs to try something new or to go "somewhere" else to perhaps experience that little extra "understanding" ...
Being impulsive and irritable, your desires and needs are paramount. You do things with insufficient thought - with little regard to the consequences that may follow. As a consequence of this attitude, you may be experiencing stress and conflict.
The present situation, not of your making, is forcing you to compromise. You will have to hold back and forgo some of your hopes, dreams and aspirations...
You are pretending that the situation around you doesn't matter, but the effort of trying to conceal your emotions and anxieties is resulting in untold stress. The existing situation is disagreeable. You feel unwanted and lonely and you would really like to associate with someone whose ideals are as high as your own. You want to be above the standard of mediocrity... and this need to be needed and that need to need has almost become an obsession. You are trying to magnify the need into a compelling urge. You would really like to tell the world how great you are.. but no.. you are holding back because you feel that your peers may treat you with contempt. This is a great pity because you have in fact a unique quality of character but the continual restraint that you impose on yourself make you suppress this need for others and you pretend you don't really care. You treat those who criticise you with contempt. However, to be honest ... beneath this assumption of indifference you really long for the approval and esteem of others.
You are greatly impressed by individuality and have interest in people who have outstanding qualities. You try to imitate those people that you admire and their characteristics, hoping that you will be able to display similar qualities in your own personality.

mmm, nothing like procrastinating. really,

mmm, nothing like procrastinating. really, i like staying up late to work on my script! it gives me a chance to munch on pomegranite seeds... no one around to watch me. seriously, because eating pomegranite seeds is messy business.
south park tonight was horrible. wonderfully, delightfully, hysterically horrible. i love that damn show.

... working on a new

... working on a new site, so if i'm not around for a little while longer, that's why.

wow, had i known about

wow, had i known about nanowrimo about a week ago, i would have probably signed myself up.
it's a good thing i didn't know about it, though, because signing up would have been a really dumb idea, since i really should be working on my play, and not a novel.
i guess i've always thought the idea of writing a novel was really fun... i've just never been very motivated. being in a sort of contest, writing a novel in a month is probably what it would take. ah well... i'll just have to remember this for next year. ;-)

so, i'm thinking about getting myself a domain name... finally!
those of you who have domains... what registrar did you use? are they all the same? should i just go for the cheapest one? any other good suggestions? leave me a comment - advice would be greatly appreciated.
