School started today, and I already like my classes and professors. I feel a little more comitted this year already, and I really want to make good grades. It is nice to go home to the puppy and cats, and to be able to romp around with Topper and rub his belly before I have to go to work.

Things are looking up. The kitties cuddled last night and we are working on things to make them better.


I am Audrey's mommy now.

She is tiny and we are already falling in love and attached to each other.

My big beast Emo is handling it really well, and we cuddled last night like I hadn't brought a tiny kitten into the home. I think they will be very close once they get used to each other.

Having a hard time deciding what to do and if I even want to pretend that I fit in any more. I know I do not belong with these people, I don't smoke and I don't really drink at all. I read for a while at the party Saturday, until I was convinced to down a tiny bottle of apple flavored vodka. It just made me really hot and I spent the rest of the time, the next hour or so, laying down in Patricia's bedroom thinking.

I really can't wait for school to start.

An Open Letter...

An Open Letter to Adrien Brody, Adrien Grenier, Jimmy Stewart, & Jason Schwartzman:

Dear ... Men.

If your picture appears below, please knock it off. You know what I'm talking about.
Especially you, Jason Schwartzman. ESPECIALLY YOU.

Christmas Knitting

I have finished probably 1/3 of my Christmas knitting already, and I'm still going full speed ahead with it. I have some more hats, two scarves, a pair of slippers, and some other things that haven't been decided yet. Tonight, I finished a scarf that I cast on last night. It's five feet long, thick yarn on ridiculously thick needles:

(ignore the messy bathroom in all of these...)
My other two favorites are two hats. One, is a colorful hat, that I haven't decided who to give to yet...

and the other is Tychus, from knitty, made of the required yarn in heathered gray and white, for my cousin Daniel. I hope he likes it. It should be big enough for his head, as it drowns mine a little.

In other news, Michael and I took Topper to the dog park for the first time tonight. He did very well. It makes me giggle to watch him interact with other dogs and see him running around smiling. I love that dog so much already, and we're just one month into this.

dos años

I have been thinking a lot lately, which is a good thing, as it will lead to me writing more. I got approved for a small loan through a private lender, so I don't have to work myself to death to get through school. I don't mind a little debt, as long as I can keep my sanity. I am so anxious for school to start so I can completely lose myself in classes and readings and such. I got new mary janes this weekend, and I fell in love with my puppy even more, and I fell in love with Michael all over again when I found our old ichat transcripts on his computer. It's so strange to read those old words again, two years after we first shared them. Two years August 27th. Wow.

Also, this Gnarls Barkley song is officially my favorite by them:
What did you do
What did you say
Did you walk or did you run away
Where are you now
Where have you been
Did you go alone or did you bring a friend

I need to know this cause
I notice you smiling
Out in the sun, having fun
And feeling free
And I can tell you know
How hard this life can be
But you keep on smiling for me

What went right
What went wrong
Was it the story or was it the song
Was it overnight or did it take you long
Was knowing your weakness what made you strong

Or all the above, oh how I love
To see you smiling
And oh yeah take a little pain just in case
You need something warm to embrace
To help you put on a smiling face
Put on a smiling face

Don't you go off into the new day with any doubt
Here's a summary of something that you could smile about
Say for instance my girlfriend she bugs me all the time
But the irony of it all is that she loves me all the time

I wanna be you whenever I see you smiling
Because it's easily one of the hardest things to do
Your worries and fears become your friends
And they end up smiling at you
Put on a smiling face.

New start?

new hair

I cut my hair tonight before I went out. I didn't have very much fun. I mostly got left out and noticed what idiots they are anyway.
The following statements/actions, uttered by the new girl, made me not want to know any more about her:
1. The thing about Houston is the Astros are really good. Sports anyone? Did anyone watch the world cup?
2. I'm not doing the whole school thing.
3. Using a cigarette case to actually hold cigarettes.

I am so tired of these people and I want new smart friends who will still make me laugh and not forget to call me for two weeks or greet me with "Why are you here?"
