“Then your two years in Paris may be regarded as so much wasted time?” “I don’t know about that. I had a very jolly two years, and I learned one or two useful things.” “What?” Philip reflected for an instant, and his answer was not devoid of a gentle desire to annoy. “I learned to look at hands, which I’d never looked at before. And...
When I buy coffee at school, I usually get a size small. I don’t need the extra calories, and rarely do I end up wishing I had purchased a larger size. It’s really the right amount. Still, every once in a while, when I feel that I really deserve it or require it, I’ll get a medium. And while I never have a problem with my size small coffees, the mediums always taste like...

5 Things My Roommate Does That I Just Don't Get:
1. Always has the TV on, regardless of what she is doing (this includes sleeping). 2. Instead of laughing, snorts. It sounds like farting. 3. Never opens/shuts the windows or blinds. She just leaves them the way they are, regardless of the time or temperature. 4. Never locks the door at night. 5. Watches the Country Music Channel.

Whoa this is awesome, and will have to make up for the fact that I will not be carving a real pumpkin this year.

Me: and then what
Ellen: then he said "if i had a dollar for everytime i've seen someone do that, i wouldn't be here. " to which i thought "um, why... you wouldn't need a dentist ??"
Ellen: but then he continued, "i would be in tahiti."
My roommate is driving me crazy. All she ever does is watch tv. It’s the most ridiculous thing ever.
Palin may have spent a ridiculous amount of the RNP’s money on her wardrobe, but there hasn’t been a single moment throughout this entire campaign that I’ve looked at her and thought she was well dressed.

My dream life...
I wish I could just live in an Anthropologie. I could sleep among their fine linens and wear their splendid dresses and bathe with their tasty tasty soaps. The only downside is that I would have to rely on the sales ladies for food. EDIT: Not that I meant I would eat the sales ladies - I meant they’d have to share whatever they brought in to eat with me. I am not a cannibal.

Buzzed for the first time in weeks… I feel good for the first time all week. This has been a shitty week. I need to get my hands on wine or something for next weekend. I can’t let this trend contintue.

Where Am I?
It’s remarkable the way the brain is able to communicate with the body, and vice versa. I used to really debate with myself about whether or not I believed in a soul, and though it’s been over a few years since I decided I did not, I was finally able to find some satisfaction in that answer. The way the brain works is beautiful. My mind is my body. PS. Check out this episode of...
I’m going to try and wear a dress one day a week. I only wish I didn’t have lab on Tuesdays and Thursdays (where long pants are required). As of now I have 4 dresses that are workable in cold weather. And while I’m interested in buying more, at the same time I’m afraid that when winter comes around I’ll give up and have wasted a lot of money. Hmm.
