I just heard Betty White say "cock ring" while speaking at the roast of William Shatner on Comedy Central. Guess that's one more memory I can start to repress...

An excerpt from my plane ride home this morning:

(Flight attendant approaches me because I'm sitting in an exit row)

Me: Good morning!
Awesome Flight Attendant: What's shakin?
Me: I'm just gettin' my groove on
AFA: You fly much?
Me: Sort of I guess...
AFA: Well if shit hits the fan can you lend a brother a hand?
Me: I suppose so...
AFA: Word

2:42 am - Many apologies lj
I've realized over the past few days that I haven't done real justice to an lj entry in several months. I suppose I should feel really guilty about that, but the way I see it, I've just been saving everything up to do one slammin' update.

For the moment (at least for the next week) I have two jobs. I work on campus at AU (obvy) as well as Barnes and Noble in Georgetown. I've been working at b&n for about a month now and it's going about as well as work can go. My dear friend/roommate Helena helped me out with getting the job and has been showing me the ropes for the past couple of weeks. Side note: If you ever ask me to make you a frappuccino I'll straight up murder your ass.

I now live in an apartment! Despite the fact that it's completely furnished from IKEA (possibly the best place ever), I consider it to be my first real person room. Moving out of the dorms did, however, evoke strong emotions and memories of assassins games and terrifying ra's. But despite all of these things I'm still pumped to be living in somewhere that is not the dorms.

Along with my shiny new apartment is a shiny new cat named Jack. Jack is a jackass. While cute and snugly at times, Jack's behavior mostly consists of trying to mess up/burrow into/ claw to death whatever you happen to be doing at the time. And because he's not afraid of water, there's little that Helena and I can do to discourage him from this destructive behavior. If anyone has any suggestions we would be truly greatful

That's pretty much the major points for now. I'm going to go back to sitting here at the desk and protecting McDowell from, well, nothing at all. That's just how awesome this job is.

So I know that I made this entry in January, but I thought I'd do it again now that I'm back:
If you KNOW that you haven't given me your cell number since my phone broke in January, I need it.

My ability to tie together a coherent lj entry is stunted, mostly because of jet lag, so I feel a +/- entry is in order:

(-/+)After four months of basically sitting on my ass and doing nothing, I'm back in the United States. Reverse culture shock is a very strange thing, especially when a Starbucks woman hands you a new ten dollar bill (that nobody told you about) and you proceed to have a breakdown over your iced chai latte.

(-)My room is an absolute mess, which is a little weird since I'm living out of suitcases until my parents get here with all of my crap on Saturday. Because of that, I can't really clean, or for that matter, put anything anywhere because I don't have any of my handy dandy Container Store things :-(

(+)I've been blessed with American television once again. Seriously, you don't realize how magnificent is really is until it's gone. I watched My Super Sweet 16 today for about 5 hours.

current mood: jetlagged

11:56 am - Madrid Awards 06'
So I won't be home for another two weeks. But it's time to recognize people who, because of them being awesome, now top my list of awesome people.

(In no particular order)

Jess Barnthouse: Send me a very unexpected postcard that made my day!

Franky Orr: Aside being dead sexy and already pretty much being my favorite person ever, sent me two wonderful care packages! (One of them had nerd rope)

Meg Rowland: Actually got on a plane, and spent her spring break with me! (and brought Dick with her)

To these three people, a mountain of thanks! Your prizes will all be different, but you'll have to talk to me to find out what they are.

current mood: sleepy

2:25 pm - School is hard
So I was going to start writing the three papers I have to write in the next 2 days.

I haven't yet.

But in my defense, I just discovered that there is a Strong Bad video podcast.

5:49 pm - Thanks a lot, Jesus
So I´m extremely bored, sitting in an internet cafe, and being overcharged. So I figured that I´d at least update to say I accomplished something today.

We got back from Morocco like two weeks ago, which was amazing. Except that everyone got constipated, which I guess is what we get for traveling to a third world country. This week is our spring break (aka Holy Week) and so we went to Ibiza for the first part of it, and now all we´re doing is hanging around Madrid. Where there is NOBODY and EVERYTHING is closed. My activities for the past three days have consisted of waking up, reading, eating, reading some more, watching CNN International, reading, eating dinner, reading, and then going to bed. I´ve never wanted to have work to do more in my entire life. However tonight Jason Sliverman´s señora has invited some of us over to her house for a Sex and the City pizza party, which is amazing/I hope it´s in english.

I randomly got pink eye two days ago, which seems to have thrown me for a loop. I didn´t have my contact case or solution with me, so my señora had to boil shot glasses and put mineral water in them for storage until the contact store opens on Tuesday. Then I had to go to the pharmacy for medicine. That wouldn´t have been so bad if "pink eye" was what this disease was called in spanish. No no, that would have just been TOO easy. But eventually I got my point across and I have eye drops that are doing something (hopefully).

On a more positive note, I sense the summer getting closer and closer. In just a little over a month from right now, I will make my glorious return to the United States and precede to have the most bangin´summer ever had. You guys better get ready.

12:06 pm - Ramblings...
Today, in an effort to make facebook less creepy for me, I unfriended everyone I actually don't know. Although I felt really bitchy while I was doing it, I reminded myself that it isn't emotionally healthy to have internet friendships with people who, as far as I'm concerned, don't exist. So to any of you who are at the brunt of my "unfriend-a-thon", I'm truly sorry.

Last night I was going through my pictures and I found one that I mean to post and rant about. Two weeks ago, we went to Córdoba in southern Spain. In Córdoba, there is a cathedral, which used to be a mosque, which used to be a church. In other words, a house of a very confused God. Anywho, we were walking to the mosque, when we saw this:

There was, I shit you not, a mosque Burger King

Now I'm all about free markets and capitalism, but even I think this is going a little far.

current mood: bitchy
