I was so mad at my cheeks for being red. What a bunch of traitors.

I'm going blonde on monday.

Well, as blonde as she can get me in one appointment after two years of black over black over black.

it's baptism by fire, really.
i've been waiting to use that phrase for years.

it is nice to have a reason to shave my legs. even if it isn't the reason i was hoping for. i'm not going to describe my new job because i can't figure out a way to make trying on clothes for a living not sound glamorous. and i want to be able to complain a little.

there's also a reason to think twice before eating that third piece of cake, and make sure i smell good, my eyebrows are plucked. maybe all i needed for the last six years was to be stared at for a living.

the real reason i took this job is because rand called me a model. i defy you to find a girl who can turn down a job as a "model."

but honestly, did i have to wear my warning sign orange shirt for security badge picture day? honestly?


my wish is that this job will cause me to lose weight, which will cause me to get fired... which will open up countless career options just when i'm ready with my new confidence!

yeah. i don't think it'll happen either. but it's nice to dream. and have a reason to shave my legs.

the worst thing about working the overnight is that when i get home the hallways always reek of stale coffee and cheap aftershave.

i think we should bring back the prefix "schm" when brushing something off. for example "should i pay my bills? oh, bills schmills" or "headline schmedline" or "television schmelevision"

last night during a particularly dull roseanne re-run on nick-at-night i found a south pier inn pen jammed into my ponytail and proceeded to draw an entire neighborhood on my stomach. complete with fences, pets, and cars in driveways.
i continued down my right leg with an ocean scene. fish, boats, and happy fishermen.

blue ink washes off skin surprisingly well.

the preface to 'welcome to the monkey house' is quite possibly the greatest 3 pages in publishing history.

a close second is the preface to 'sex, drugs, and cocoa puffs'

um...instead of doing work tonight, i decided to do some online shopping. after a spree on amazon, i went off to the buckle, delias, urban outfitters, wet seal....

i bought three outfits for the bte concert

AND I STILL NEED A REALLY THICK PASTEL COLORED BELT, if anyone can think where i can get one.

but it has to be cheap since i officially spent all my spanish class refund money.

$600. online. in three days. my mailbox is going to be the most happenin place in town.

the other day, my sister was making fun of me because my password is super long and i am all "whatever, my password is spectacular. nobody will crack my code."

and she goes, "yeah right. its probably 'ilovejohnhampson' or something."

and she is so close.

on the way to work today i realized that in 'bad medicine' bon jovi is saying "come on lets play doctor, baby, cure my disease."

thats the best hair metal lyric EVER. it sounds like david lee roth wrote it.

i wish every day was metal day.

i miss mail. mail used to be the one beam shining through my own personal raincloud. now, on the rare occasion that the rickety mailbox manages to cough up anything, its only soggy bills or advertisements addressed to "current resident."

after english my neck always hurts.

i usually spend the entire class (in the front row) staring straight down at my desk. my head is parallell with the surface. my nose, if i were shorter, would leave an imprint on the veneer.

i do this because i dont want him to see me roll my eyes. or cross them, which is my 'that kid is SO dumb' face. or just my bored face in general.

although it just occurred to me that displaying the top of my head might be just as rude.

so, today while i counted the seconds, i hear him say "blablabla...and what did marx say about religion-" and without even thinking (or rasing my head), i interrupted (in a completel monotone voice) with "religion is the opiate of the masses." which is all the things he hates. 1. being interrupted. 2. students who dont raise thier hands. 3. when someone happens to know the obscure reference he is about to dazzle us with.

and it really bugged me too, because i was going to put that in my paper so i sounded smart, but now it is just going to look like he gave me the idea.
