I can't wait until Turkey Run State Park time.
One more freaking week.

We use the guillotine in this country. I have always imagined that the blade, coming down, causes no more than a slight tickling sensation on the back of the neck. It is only a guess, of course. I hope none of you ever finds out for certain.

Oh my.
Wednesday is an..
...Oh my.

Saturday night is looking good though. Indian food here I come! I haven't had it since Nishant and I made it in the end of August!

It's that time of year again...

Time to dance the Time Warp again!

Rocky Horror Picture Show always cracks me up. It's so cheesy, so silly, so sexual, it's hilarious.
It is one of those movies that some people take very seriously (seen anyone with pink hair lately? or maybe brilliant red?) and they pretend the whole year 'round that they are part of a time warp that no one could possibly understand or acknowledge. They are their own creatures that go bump in the night. They live on planet Mars and mostly go to I.U. (though occasionally I'll see one running after a bus on campus, normally they don't catch the bus because the bus driver is scared of them).
Then there are those that are healthlier about it. We don't dye our hair wacky colors and we don't dress in black, and once a year we sit down and watch the movie Rocky Horror Picture show, usually around the time of Halloween because its socially acceptable to watch any freaky thing that time of year. We enjoy it once and then go return the rental so it can sit on the shelf until next year.
There are some who are in between A and B. Some who will dress up once a year, but not year round, or those who go to the Union to watch it but don't watch it again until next year. Those people kind of push the line but never really cross it.

I find I'm type B. I'm just going to sit down watch it once, enjoy laughing at it, and put it back on the shelf.

The scariest thing: Because it is such a widely popular movie, and has been for over 25 years.... My parents are at home doing the same..... Isn't that a scary thought?

And then there she was
In platform double suede
Yeah there she was
Like disco lemonade
I smell sex and candy here
Who's that lounging in my chair
Who's that casting devious stares
In my direction
Mama this surely is a dream


I think they should make a romance movie where the two actors would wake up make love and then eat tons of Godiva chocolate. Wouldn't that be the most romantic thing in the world? Just eating Godiva is so romantic. Forget making love. How about this, the guy wakes up scoops Godiva ice cream for the girl, then shaves Godiva chocolate all over the ice cream and then serves it to the girl in bed.
Damn that is romantic.

Today after work I'm going to go see Ravi Shankar at Loeb Playhouse. This is the first time I've ever seen him and I'm incredibly excited. This is also a SOLD OUT show of Convocations which has some people amazed. The sad thing is, most people can't appreciate good music. They appreciate those who make a statement, or those who sell out and make music only to impress others. They can't just appreciate something that has talent. Ravi Shankar is 84 years old, and he has mentored such people as The Beatles, he has a daughter who is famous in Indian classical (Anoushka) and a daughter who is famous in America (Nora Jones). And people actually question why the show is sold out?

I got 4 free tickets to STOMP today.
Yes 4.
VERY good seats too.
Comp tickets.
Up front.
So you can see sweat from the performers.
What did I do.
I studied East Asia.
Why?
Because I have a test tomorrow.
Where did the tickets go?
My brother took 3 lovely guests to see STOMP.
I better get an A on this test.

Last night I was very ill. I had to call in sick to work (something I hate) and I had to miss one of my classes. When it came to dinner I was a little bit hungry so Nishant tried to fix dinner, but everything he offered I felt ill again. So he went to the store just to get me things to eat. While I was waiting at the apartment thinking that this was really sweet of him... he came back and not only had groceries, he had Jersey Girl too (a movie I have wanted to see for awhile). So we spent the evening together watching the movie and eating rice and mushrooms.
He can be very romantic even when I'm sick.

Last nite she said "Oh baby don't feel so down"

Another broke Saturday night.
While this might sound horrific to those bar-hopping freaks, to me it sounds wonderful. It requires me to stay home, it requires me to study, and it allows me time with the one person who makes my horrible problems disappear.
We started out talking about guitar techniques and then he started playing some of the songs we were talking about (on his guitar and on the laptop). Then we started dancing to the music.
It was nice to have my money problems slip away,
it was nice to have my school tests forgotten,
it was nice that it was just me and him,
in our room,
with Joe Pass playing Autumn Leaves in the background.

Our new pet.

So my mom e-mails me with this horrific story of our cat Frogger.

Frogger (who is in-love with Nishant) likes crickets. She likes crickets so much that she will catch them outside and then bring them in and play with them in the house. This frustrates my mom because she is the one that has to vacuum bits and pieces of crickets all the time.
Yesterday my mom walked into the living room to see Frogger crouched down peering underneth a rug in out house. My mom assumed it was another cricket so she walks over and pulls back the rug, only to find a snake.

Most people right now are shuddering or thinking to themselves, "I'd be screaming and running if that happened to me." I thought that, my mom thought to put the rug aside and walk into the kitchen to get a jar to put the snake in.
She has now named the snake "Cricket" and I think she is going to keep it.
Below are pictures of our new family pet. *shudder*

I asked Nishant to marry me.
He said no, I didn't have a ring, and he said he felt cheap that I would just ask like that with no ring and not getting down on one knee and all that.
Sigh.
I'm just such an asshole.



I can't help but want a dog. I actually thought about asking Nishant if we could drive out to the pet store to look at them. I just want to look at them. How pathetic is that? Thank goodness our apartment cat Leo is sort of dog-like. He has a lot of personality and attacks almost anything that moves. I guess that would make him a guard cat.

It's sad how black and white people can be.
If someone isn't doing something your way, then its obviously the wrong way.
What a sad thought.
That makes you the end all be all benevolent being.
I think that is unfair.
Why not think, if they are doing it different, I wonder why?
I've had friends in the past who have shown each side to this argument.
One friend (because of religion) could not wear jeans, could only wear skirts. Did that mean that I was going to hell? No, she said, "Just because you aren't in the same way of life as me, doesn't mean that you are a bad person."
What a nice thought, there ARE different people in this world!
Second friend, had very strict parents, and when she found out that my parents let me drink wine and such underage and in High School no less, she went nuts on me. She said, "Do you know how horrible your parents are for letting you drink underage!"
Tell me, if I didn't get hurt and I didn't get sick, what was the harm in it? If anything it helped because I lost my curiosity to go out and try alcohol in a different setting. How does that make me worse?
Maybe for those of you out there, who are black and white, try to look at the gray area. Maybe think to yourself, "I'm not 100% right all the time, I am wrong occasionally" Believe me, it might open a lovely world where you don't that to run on constant fear that you might be wrong sometime in the future. Just admit your wrong sometimes now, and you won't worry so much about the future.

And I admit, this post could have several flaws to it.

Have a great day!

Going strong today from 7:30 am till 5 pm.
I'm actually getting use to the idea of waking up at 6:30 everyday. I am enjoying it. Isn't that scary?
My new Convos job is incredible. Steady hours, good pay, and all I do is homework, surf the internet, and design webpages for them. It can't get much better.
I still can keep my B&N job too, only on weekends, but still that is a nice bonus too. There is one more option I've found which is a job that pays 8.75 and hour and would only need me on Tuesdays and Saturdays... if I get that, say goodbye to B&N!
Life is on the up and up.
Nishant is so cute, he talks in his sleep sometimes, and last night he asked if I had fed the dog. Haha.. i wish we had our dogs already :)

Oprah = Confucius

Who was Confucius? Anyone know? I always like to think of Confucius as an ancient Oprah.


History this year is going to be interesting. (History 240 - East Asia)


I finally got my room together! Internet working, silk curtains hung, clothes upacked, decorations hung and my masterpiece, my bed, put together. My bed is gorgeous, my dad and I spent all summer working on it together and I've never been so happy with furniture. It is Ash wood with a dark stain on it, it's absolutely gorgeous, I'll show you a picture sometime soon.

Leo (our apartment cat) is awesome. A complete lover who enjoys silk curtains as much as I do. He enjoys sleeping under them, I think he likes the silk just slightly touching his fur. :) He too, loves my bed, he sometimes is let out of Katie's room and then makes a b-line for my room. Ah.. its nice to have my tastes appreciated by someone so perceptive. haha!

I saw Annette last night! I was so happy!
We talked for 2 hours straight (lots of months to catch up on), and then Nishant came and we made plans to get together next weekend sometime. :-D
I love Nishant to death, but I needed the female "Oh my god, are you serious?" comments. He understood (not that he had a choice ;)) and I excitedly tried to summarize 2 hours of conversation to 10 minutes so he wouldn't suffer. haha. I wouldn't have wanted to hear every little detail of 2 hours of conversation either, but I have a hard time telling the gist of things, I'm female, I pay attention to detail. ;)
Anyway,
I missed Annette's complete and utter understanding of my world. It was nice to talk to her at last.
