I Guess It's Nobody's Fault Now But My Own

My thoughts have been few and far between lately. Had no real inspiration to write, but I'm awfully bored right now, so seems as good a time to write as ever. Well, first things first, today is mine and Corey's 10 month wedding anniversary. I can't believe it's already been 10 months. Been a great 10 months, I love Corey and I am so happy I never have to go through sheva brachos again -- well, until our future children get married, but then the focus won't be all on me and the Core-inator. Yeah, I mixed Corey with Terminator. I'm awesome like that.

Besides for loving Corey, I also love music. It is awesome.

I had a dream last night that Barak Obama and Sherry Palmer (the biz-nitch from '24') were married... and he was cheating on her. Seems pretty realistic to me... the marriage part, not the cheating on his wife part though. I don't hit that low.

Mayonnaise sandwiches are awesome. Put some Miracle Whip Lite on two pieces of toast and stick a piece of American cheese or two in the middle. I've been eating these sandwiches since I was about 6 and I still love them as much today as I did then. Oh, and Miracle Whip Lite is the only mayo worth eating. That is your fact for the day. Spread it.

My Lack Of Music Will Be Over Soon Enough and I'll Start Using Lyrics In My Title Again

Now, I am not a fan of any of the 3 people mentioned in this video, but this is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. Talk about propaganda (wait, is that even the right word here? I don't know. It's finals week. My brain don't work so good.) Anyway, like I said, this video is ridiculous so please don't think that these are my opinions. And though this is ridiculous, it is also absolutely hilarious. Enjoy!


An Idea.

I had an idea a few months ago and decided to write it down before someone else thinks of it.

A new ad campaign to get young people to get their clothes checked for shatnez:
Shatnez is not the Shiz-nit.
Get Checked.


Save a Calf, Eat A Midget

Most of the blogs I read tend to write about serious stuff. Even when it's done in a satirical fashion, there is still an underlying seriousness. So, for anyone who just needs a laugh -- not that more than a couple of people actually read my blog anymore -- here is my favorite comic from one of the weirdest comic strips I've come across. Enjoy!

I Don't Know What's Left To Say

I'm supposed to be writing a 4000 word paper for my metaphysics class right now. Instead, I have decided to write a bunch of random thoughts down in my blog.
In no particular order:
1. The sight of Barak Obama really bothers me. Maybe its because I disagree with his politics, but I think its probably something else. When I was about 12 or 13 years old the sight of Minnie Driver really bothered me. Still not sure why that is, but I have a feeling it is the same reason seeing Obama bothers me.

2. If you don't put down, mock, etc. yeshivish people in your post, you are guaranteed no more than 5 comments (unless of course, you get 3 comments and reply to each separately. Then you'll have 6. woo. hoo.)

3. I was on the phone with my mom the other day and we were talking about when my husband and I finally get our of here (aka New York). My mom said, "You're probably going to miss being around a lot of Jews though." I immediately said, "No" to which my mom replied, "Why?" "Because they're frum on the outside, not on the inside." (Hey, maybe I'll get more than 5 comments for saying that...)

4. Last night I had a dream I went to L.A. with one of my friends to interview musicians.

5. My husband and I are nearly finished with the entire series of The X-Files. We're a few episodes into the 8th season (out of 9 seasons). Just in time for the movie coming out on July 25th!

You're Too Funny To Be So Heavenly

Registered for Fall 2008 and my last semester as a college student! WOOHOO! As of late December 2008/early January 2009 (depending on when my grades get in) I will have a BA in philosophy. So useful! Anyway, here's my schedule for this coming fall semester:

Hebrew Prophets in English: 1:10-2:25pm
Philosophical Psychology: 2:45-4:00pm

Asian American Literature: 9:45-11:00am
Revolutions in Modern Philosophy: 11:10-12:25pm

Why am I taking an Asian American Lit class and two classes on Friday? Well, I need one last "pluralism and diversity core" which Asian American Lit satisfies. Plus, a friend of mine is taking it this semester and she said it's very easy. And I'm taking two classes on Friday because Revolutions in Modern Philosophy is a core part of my major and they only offer one section every 3rd semester. Stupid, no? So I'm stuck with class on Friday, but I don't mind since I probably won't be working after June. My boss informed me the other day that they're making budget cuts and they're probably going to have to let me go. Doesn't bother me all that much though. I didn't want to work during the summer and I would only be able to work one day a week next semester anyway.
So, to those of you in college, what are you taking next semester?

They'll Never Understand What It's Like To Be A Kid Today

I read about a dozen different blogs on a regular basis. When I have nothing to do I'll look at the other comments on my favorite blogs and go to the commentors' blogs and read those blogs. Today I just happened to come across a teenagers blog since their screen name somewhat interested me. This kid was complaining about his family during the seder. He was talking about how he was so excited for the 4 cups because he got to drink alcohol and how he wishes he could drink more. I know that not all teens are like this. When I was a teen I loved the seders with my family as much as I do now, though that alcohol thing I could definitely relate with at the time. But that's just the thing, it was at the time. I can't relate with that anymore. Drinking alcohol just doesn't have that appeal anymore. I drank only grape juice this year and after the second cup I started feeling sick to my stomach. After not having eaten since lunch, then drinking this super-sugary grape juice, my "old" stomach just can't handle it anymore. It's weird. I was a teenager less than 3 years ago and so much has changed in that time. I'm somewhat of a grown up now. I don't have the same issues as even a 19 year old has. Even a married 19 year old, I doubt I have the same issues as. I'm not trying to be an age-ist. I'm not looking down on teenagers. Just saying that I used to feel very close to other teens and now, we have almost nothing in common. When did this all change? When did I become an adult? When did I stop being a teen and stop blaming the "old" people for my problems?
