1) Post a list of five things you currently love/like, and five things you currently hate/dislike.
2) They can be people, places, things, ideas, whatever.
3) Tag five people to do this


Love/like:

1. Red wine, especially chianti.
2. Barack Obama. I think my cynicism is starting to crack.
3. D&D - I'm not sure if it's the game (nerdy, I know, and I own it) or the people I play with, but I'm really starting to like it.
4. Pushing Daisies (season premiere October 1!! *excited*)
5. Anderson Cooper :)

Hate/dislike

1. Waiting to hear if I got a job or not, especially when other (although lesser) money-earning opportunities depend upon a quick decision. Also, job-giving people who wait until five days before classes start to ask, "Oh, by the way, can you teach this semester?" Where were you in July?!?!
2. Not having all my stuff at one house.
3. Residents who yank on the door handle and rattle the door when they know damn good and well that the door is locked and that they need to use their swipe card to get in, or residents who, having forgotten their swipe card, knock on the door and expect me to walk down the hall instead of walking around the building themselves to the front door which I can open for them without having to abandon the desk (and there one goes now, as if on cue *points gnarled finger* Damn kids!).
4. Ants.
5. TV shows about the pregnancy/birthing process. Now that Natalie's being induced tomorrow, my hope is that the experience will be enough and that I will never have to sit through another one of these shows.

Re: So You Think You Can Dance...What the...? )

I'm going home this weekend to see my parents. Then they're coming here next week to help Tammy move into her new apartment before she goes to China on the 4th. So I'm going to get a lot of Mom and Dad time over the next week.

Dr. James Wilson
60% Eccentricity, 25% Confidence, 60% Kindness
Congratulations, you're Dr. James Wilson! You've got the tough role of being the conscience and best friend to Dr. Greg House, which proves that you must be secretly (or openly) insane. You're always a good person for providing advice, witty remarks, free lunches, lectures, and (wanted or unwanted) psychoanalysis. You are about as confident as the average person, but you have some big issues with yourself, and may have problems living up to the ideals you have in your head. You do really care about other people, though, even if you sometimes express that caring by trying to get into their pants.




My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

Dear Victoria's Secret Employee-in-Training,

I know you're new here. So let me explain something.

I visit your store at least once a month. I also work a desk job where I can spend a lot of time on the VS website. And you look about 18, which means that I've been a faithful customer of your company since you were in kindergarten. So I don't really need a lot of assistance from you.

What I do need is for you to listen to me when I smile, appreciative of the polite acknowledgment that you gave me when I walked in the door, and say, "No thanks - I'm just looking." Just step back, let me do my thing, and keep an eye out for when I do find something so that you can swoop in like a superhero and do that whisk-everything-I'm-holding-away-to-the-cash-register-so-that-I-don't-have-to-be-bothered-carrying-it thing that I love so much.

What I do NOT need is for you to help me find the style or size I want. I have so much VS underwear at home that I could probably go two months and never wear the same pair twice. I know the company and the product - I know what I like, and I know what fits. Do not - I repeat - DO NOT look me up and down, raise one eyebrow, and say, "Maybe we should try a different size."

Unless, of course, by "different size" you mean a smaller one. Because, although I will politely decline the suggestion and buy the size that I know actually fits, I must confess that, when I am in the mood to spend money, kissing my ass will get you everywhere. That small dose of flattery, empty as you and I know it to be, can really up your commission.

But right now, I wouldn't so much as buy lip gloss from you, thanks to your lackluster customer service. So here's hoping that you've learned your lesson. Maybe next month you'll do better.

love,
coffeesnob

*sheepish look; shuffling feet*

I'm here. I have neglected the returning of phone calls, canceled dinner plans, and generally been a royal flake. This semester is kicking my ass.

As far as lj goes, I've been lurking sporadically, but I've not really had much to say. I did take a break from running around like a chicken with its head cut off to go to the arts and jazz festival this weekend, where I bought a really nifty hair ornament (ornament for the hair, not made of hair - just wanted to clarify), I stood in line for an eternity to wait for fried pickles, I listened to Brave Combo, and it was decided that I need to marry a man who dances. I can accept that.

My last Tuesday/Thursday class met yesterday. I know that I still have to meet for finals and finish grades, but the end-of-school euphoria (and subsequent impending slothdom) is already setting in. I have never been so ready for summer in my life.

Yay House! As much as I love that show, I just don't have anything to say about it usually.

Gilmore Girls, on the other hand... )

-----------
Not quite sure how I feel about this...but ok.






Which Western feminist icon are you?




You are Angela Davis! You were the THIRD WOMYN IN HISTORY to appear on the FBI's Most Wanted List. You are a communinist, black power-lovin' lady who shook up the United States when you refused to lie down quietly to oppression. You WENT TO JAIL! Wow. You kick so much more ass than Foxxy Brown.
