OMG MAKE IT STOP!


That effing Vanessa Williams song is on...AGAIN! This is horrible. Simply horrible. I think I might vom all over the place.

AND AND AND! Freaking makeout couples everywhere. There was one on the bus in front of me last night. Gag. Gross. Puke.

I'm Standing on the Corner in Lafayette, State of Louisiana


Friday, May 23, 2008:
5 a.m.: Thanks cabbie! I feel good. Like really. For the first time in over a week now.
5:15 a.m.: Hhhmmm...Am I hearing XTC in Logan Airport? Naaaawwwwhhh! (listen harder) Oh nope! Huey Lewis & the news. What does Huey feel when he hears his own voice while waiting in the security line?
6:45 a.m.: Maybe I'll get a tattoo this weekend. Yeah! Maybe Colleen & I will get tattoos.
9:45 a.m.: Holden Caufield was really just a little asshole. And immature, irresponsible, prick. Kinda like Dean from On the Road. Edit: despite Holden having a 'change of heart' at the end, he still acts like a jerk throughout it so I'm referring to jerk Holden, not the one who actually has a conscience.
11:45 a.m.: Why is that horrible Vanessa Williams song following me around? I've heard Save the Best for last at least 3 times this week. (shiver)

Arrive in Louisiana & run across to parking lot to see my best girl:
3 DAYS OF NOT THINKING ABOUT ANYTHING BUT BOILED CRAWFISH & BLUE-SHELL CRAB, SWIMMING IN THE VERMILLION & MAKING SURE TO PUT ON SUNSCREEN.

Monday, May 26, 2008:
7:45 a.m.: Maybe I should try to get on that earlier flight. Nah. Mine leaves at 8:40.
8:25 a.m.: (loudspeaker) The 8:40 to Houston has been delayed.
8:30 a.m.: Excuse me, ticketlady, I need to get back to Boston.
Ticketlady: well, we don't know when we'll take off.
Me: Why not?
TL: Because the plane has flat tires.
Me: You don't have spares?
TL: Miss, we'll get you back to Houston as soon as we can.
11:00 a.m.: Geez! We're finally boarding, sure hope I make that 12:30 to Boston since I missed the 10:30.
12:25 p.m.: Come on legs, run run! (while running through the Houston airport)
12:40 p.m.: Phew! Made it. Wait, are those 4 small children around me?
1:00 p.m.: Well, these screaming kids certainly made up my mind on that issue for a while. Wait, what's that I hear? (kid behind me vomiting all over himself)
1:15 p.m.: Well, at least I'm not sitting next to him. Hold on, are the people next to me making out? Oh god, no. Seriously?!?!

Yes, seriously, I took an amazing trip down to Lafayette & stayed at Ma Jan's camp surrounded by strong, awesome women. We dance partied, we swam in the bay, we ate some of the best food I've eaten in quite a while & we enjoyed each others' company & stories. And then as the universe's way of telling me not to come home, an interesting sequence of events has made today the official worst travel day I've ever had. Hands down. This was worse than sitting in Luton Airport for 9 hours.

And now it's bedtime.

Ugh.


So this week is just a crabby crabby week. Yuck. I keep trying to pull myself out of this funk but that is just not happening. I feel moody, irritable & pretty much like I just want to crawl into a hole & not come out for a while.

Despite a great weekend with mom & a housewarming party coming up this Saturday & getting a higher score on the 2nd practice test I took (albeit not as high as I'd have liked), my mood is just in the crapper. Maybe it's because my sinuses are acting like total ayeholes. Maybe it's that the weather is currently reflecting more of an October than May kinda attitude. Maybe it's because I haven't gotten a full 8 hours of sleep all week. Maybe it's because 'my new roommate' fell through so now I have to keep roomie searching. Maybe it's that I'm scared to death to start real people school again & am more or less convinced that I will fail out. (not really but it's still a little scary) Ugh.

So I'll stop there before I turn completely into whiney mcwhinestrom & put myself to bed as to not infect Georgie & Henry with this terrible attitude.

Mission Find a Bathing Suit: Accomplished

Here is my new bathing suit. It doesn't take 20 lbs off of me but that's okay. That's why I'll also take my tried & true Speedo with me to LA. I ordered it off of the interwebs. Man, I love the interwebs. The top fits really well & since I don't like my hips & thighs nothing will make me feel happy about any bottoms. That's why god invented shorts & skirts.















Here's a picture from the bridge on my walk home from work.










And here's a picture of one of the stoplights in Harvard Square.

See! Told ya I'd get along to posting pictures, albeit 5 months later than promised.



p.s. One more thing to add to my plate: Guess who's getting pointe shoes in a month!
