Roman's over, but we're not playing UT, everyone's just kind of doing their own thing, which is cool. I like that we can all hang out like this. My hands feel funny, and I'm trying to figure out whether that's lack of sleep, or what. I think it is, because they were doing this the other day, too. I didn't get as much done today as I would have liked...wanted to play outside, too. It was deceptively bright and sunny, but SOOOO COLD. I'm completely useless when I'm cold...I just curl up and whimper.
When we went to Rice 'n' Spice earlier, we got four things: Hello Panda (which I'd had before, but Chris hadn't), Calpico Soda (strawberry), Ramune soda, and these strawberry-chocolate things that don't have any discernable english name.
The Hello Panda is good...they're cookies filled with soft chocolate, and quite tasty, but nothing really unusual.
The Calpico soda was good, too...we were wary of it, because it claims to be a "fermented milk soft drink" which we think is a translation error...the ingredients list the milk part as "dry milk (treated with a lactic acid culture)" so the translation probably had something to do with that. Anyway, it's quite good...tastes like a normal strawberry soda, but creamier. Very nice.
Next on the list is Ramune soda, which I am now in love with because
A. They taste good, and
B. The have fun bottles!
The stopper is essentially a marble that you push into the bottle in order to drink out of it. The soda itself tastes...interesting. It reminded Chris and me of Bicardi Silver, minus the alcohol. Sort of. Good. Very good. I will be buying this drink often, I know.
The last thing we tried were these weird chocolate-strawberry things, which I really liked, but Chris wan't so hot on. They tasted like...well, they were chocolate and strawberry, what more can I say? Apparently they were made by Meiji, the same company that made Hello Panda. Good times.
Anyway, it's 3:30 in the fucking morning. Thought you'd all like to know.
I've been kind of snappy today...Chris keeps getting frustrated at things, and yelling at them, which makes me frustrated because half the time it's not really a big deal and I think he should be more patient...but I know that's hard for him sometimes, and I shouldn't get annoyed...but that's hard sometimes, too. Ah, well.
I think we're going to try to clean tonight...sometime. Whee! Insanity!
Gah, I'm so tired already...not sure how long I'll last.
My fingers feel FUNNYYYYYYY!
We just went to Rice 'n' Spice! Now we have snacks and tasty drinks! HOORAY!
Ramune Soda is sooooooo good!
So much to doooo!
I think I might not sleep tonight...and I just got up. Coffee! Where's my coffee??
Well, I ditched class because I like sleep too much...silly, I know. I'm going to go work on homework after this post though, so I won't be in TOO much trouble.
Anyway, I found this page, which is good fun. My nation is called Cthulaintha, and Chris's is Weaselasia, and we're located in a region called The Happy Land of Pudding. Woo! I'm an Empress! ph34r m3!
Anyway, it is now time to do homework. And clean. Ye gods, our house is messy.
We have chocolate bunnies! Courtesy of Chris's parents.
By the way
Man, I hate it when people call things "gay"...it's just ignorant and lame.
Stupid chat people. Get a bigger vocabulary.
No class today!
Yep, no class today (unless you count Math Lab, and I still haven't got all that crap figured out...so confusing!). Got an e-mail from mom which was spiffy and...well, today's just off to a good start. The weather's nice, and things are just good. I'm going to clean and do laundry today, but I think I'm going to go outside, sit in the sun, and draw first. It's so nice out!
Roman and Kami came over and played Unreal with us last night, which was fun...It's fun teaching Kami how to play.
One thing I HAVE to do today is go get Chris's present...his birthday was yesterday, and I just didn't have time to go get it...He says he doesn't care (He doesn't even like his birthday, especially the attention it forces on him), but I still want to do something for him, or I'll feel like the world's worst girlfriend.
Time to go outside and do stuff!
Feeling extra spacey, ever since I got home. I'm supposed to be reading my homework for Fiction, but I just don't feel like it.
Had some fun conversations in color...one with Asia (spelling?) about Christianity (though I tried not to rant too much because I didn't want to offend her), one with the guy down the table from me about religion some more (apparently he's read "Holy Blood, Holy Grail" too, so that was cool) and also one with Stephanie about sexuality, which was really cool. Come to think of it, I didn't do shit in color ^_^ ...but of course, classes like that are the most fun.
Still feeling spacey...Yiiii! I have to read my homework! It's 6:15 already! Class at 7! o_O
I read Art Spiegelman's Maus today, for the first time. I found it at the library and remembered a friend telling me about it years ago, so I checked it out. I read it and loved it...it's such an incredibly well-presented story, and it's...it's just wonderful, in a horribly sad and painful way, but wonderful. Go buy it or read it or something.
Afterwards I was just thinking about how sad the world can be sometimes (Neil Gaiman's stuff does this to me too). The Chris came home and I sort of put it all out of my head and did homework for awhile, and then Chris cooked some clam chowder and I went to make some toast.
Now this bread we have isn't even a week old and it's got mold growing all over the bottom and sides already...and I mean, we JUST bought this bread! We got the cheap kind, because we're poor college students, and we can do that, but still, it shouldn't be moldy already. It pisses me off.
So here I am, going through this bag of moldy bread and trying to salvage some of it so I can make toast, and *BAM*: I look down at the trash can, and think "If I were in Auschwitz this would have fed me for a week."
It just hit me, like that, and I felt like the biggest fucking ingrate in the whole world. I know that I probably waste less than the "average American," but it made me think of how much we DO waste, how much we AREN'T grateful for...when we have so much. I felt like a big fucking waste, and I just started crying uncontrollably...Then Chris came in and gave me a hug, and then I stopped and he went and read his book again.
And now I'm sitting here, feeling like shit and eating toast.
I have homework to do. I don't want to. It feels like the smallest thing in the world right now.
...and so do I, but I'm almost used to that.
