No college student should do the crossword puzzles in the newspaper. It's just not right.

Oh, and do yourself a favour and look at The Gashlycrumb Tinies by Edward Gorey. Now that's my kind of humour!

Staying up late, listening to the Beatles, playing Minesweeper Flags, and gnawing cold cheesecake directly out of a styrofoam container.

Who ever said college wasn't fun?

Actually, I retract my "Happy Australia Day."

And this means that today there is an entire continent full of criminals drinking without my well-wishes.

Yeah, so take that.


I assume this means that today there is an entire continent full of drunk criminals. Incredible!

Well, I'm sick. Seems odd that it would begin right after the long weekend, but what can ya do?! Maybe it was Grandma's fault. Oh well! Tonight I will spend at the Sparks', hoping to regain some semblance of health.

I watched Bridget Jones' Diary again, and marvelled both at Colin Firth's superiority over most other men and at the fact that 6 + 4 = 10. That has become the sad equation of my educational life. Wah. But alas! there is nothing for me to do about it that wouldn't require more effort than its solution is worth.

On the weekend I read Jane Austen's Persuasion and gained from it something like a kindred spirit, but not quite.

The only thing worth mentioning from today's happy things is:


And I fully agree.

Soon I shall have to ask a question of someone, and that will be extraordinarily horrible on the whole, but necessary nonetheless. And right now, I have to call the bank and get them to stop charging me for my free account. Again.

Look! All of the things to be happy about for today truly are things to be happy about!

a hot shower

starting a brand-new book

hiking a steep trail

warm pockets for cold hands

falling in love

Lovely, lovely indeed!

That said, I think I'm going to go and read a book now, while I still have the chance! Oh, glaucoma, how you haunt me. (Just kidding!)

I need to do my blasted homework for once! It's already almost midnight, and I've done diddly-squat!

If only I were less apathetic and more industrious.

Industrious like the proud Canadian beaver...

My new goal, as of today:

To become the most fearsome eBay guru to stalk the information superhighway!

Take that, beanienanna!

And today I was once again subjected to uninformed left-wing views on Iraq. The problem was that they were nestled in among religion and idealism. I hope no one was fooled.

Some of today's things:

dewy skin

a walk at twilight

happy, rumbling furnaces

a letter written on beautiful stationery

Aren't those delightfully girly and wonderful?

¡soy la Diana del mundo!

That's it, that's all. Just that and no more.

I would just like to state once again that I LOVE my little cousin Chance. I remembered him today when I listened to "Angels In Waiting" by Tammy Cochran, and I prayed desperately that my children would turn out half as sweetly, wonderfully, and adorably. Hey, a girl can dream. ;)
Today an event so momentous, so wonderful, so absolutely unprecedented occurred that I can only describe it in English.

I received a Captain Canuck comic book signed by Richard Comely in the mail from Bolton!

Blessings on eBay, for as long as it shall endure the rigors of pop culture.

There comes a point in one's life when one just needs to sleep. I have reached that point. Again.

A few of my favorite "things to be happy about" for today...

torchlight skiing

sour cream and guacamole

a tree trunk bigger than you

Lovely to contemplate, aren't they?

I would just like to vent my wrath about the evil so-called "beanienanna". The wretched individual is out-eBaying me! How many of the same blasted Darren Hayes single does one person need? For Frith's sake, just let me have one of them! That's all I want!

CURSED BEANIENANNA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hereby submit my purposely obstinant, irritating view on the matter.

Our self-deprecation about having a Eurocentric worldview stems from our Eurocentric worldview.

Think about THAT!

You know what? I just plain don't care if history is Eurocentric. Nope, I don't. So stick that in your pipe and smoke it!

The first step down the road to vermin-feceslessness has been taken. All of my things have been removed from the scene of the crime. Now I shall have to embark upon the hideous task of washing all of my clothing several times.

I must publicly thank Felisa for being so wonderful as to help me fix it all. I never could have done it all by myself. I would have gone bananas and flung myself out the window. (Which, by the way, is a distinct possibility, since the screen in that dreadful room was non-existant.) Thanks, Felisa, my marvelous dear friend. LOL

Now, I go to drink coffee and soothe my poor distraught soul.

I think I should make it my goal to exterminate all rodents. I realize that that could potentially be a very dissatisfying sort of goal. Those that you really can't attain generally are. But at least I would feel like I was making a DIFFERENCE in the world. Making it a BETTER PLACE!

Of all of the people that the vermin could have attacked, why did it have to be me? Me! The most likely person on this entire campus to suffer a mental breakdown from the whole experience!

Ironic, isn't it?

If only everyone had the mind of Douglas Adams or of Terry Pratchett.

On the other hand, perhaps randomness would then cease to be random, and common sense would be random.

Then people like me could become wealthy authors by captivating the minds of unsuspecting peasants.

And some of today's things to be happy about:

the sea shrouded in mist

the whole truth

living in snow country

I just don't know about some people...
