Did someone say Friday? I'm sure someone, somewhere did at some point (If you didn't get that, don't worry, only a select few will.) Yes, it is Friday, which can only mean one thing, The Friday Five:

1. What is one thing you don't like about your body?
-I do NOT like my hips. They are "child-bearing" hips and I am sure that in the future that will be something I am grateful for, but now, they just make my butt and thighs look bigger.

2. What are two things you love about your body?
-I LOVE LOVE LOVE my hair. I used to absolutly hate being a redhead because it made me different from everyone else, now I love being a redhead because being different
is Great!

3. What are three things you want to change about your home?
-Well, my temporary residence is in Watterson Hall. Things I would change about Watterson:
1) My weirdo neighbors
2) The Crappy Elavators
3) "The Watterson Effect"

4. What are four books you want to read this year?
-Well, I just bought about 20 scripts that I had never read (I have seen some though), so I will probably start with those. Also, my favorite of all time, a book that I have read time and time again and will continue to read, The Great Gatsby.

5. What are five promises you have kept to yourself?
-One:I made myself a promise to be true, not just to myself, but to others; so far, so good.
Two:I have not let one horrible guy ruin my opinion of guys forever.
Um, Three:I have associated myself with more theatre majors, don't ask me why this was such a huge battle for me last semester, but it was.
Four:I have bonded with my family.
Five:I haven't had a major freakout about stress this semester.

-"It is wonderful to be here in the great state of Chicago"
People thought that Dan Quayle was dumb and made fun of him. If only we had known the wonders of G W.

Last night, MacGyver was once again in the Middle East, kicking the asses of "vengeful tribesmen" who were attacking a train full of passengers. If only people would turn to MacGyver, we would have been forewarned of the evil plans of the terrorists. I sure hope that tonight he will blow up Osama bin Laden's cave with a toothpick and some hair.

I loved this joke, I thought it was hysterical:
Two bored casino dealers were waiting at a craps table. A very attractive blonde woman arrived and bet twenty thousand dollars on a single roll of the dice. She said, "I hope you don't mind, but I feel much luckier when I'm completely nude." With that she stripped from her neck down, rolled the dice and yelled, "Mama needs new clothes!" Then she hollered..."YES! YES! I WON! I WON!" She jumped up and down and hugged each of the dealers. She then picked up all the money and clothes and quickly departed. The dealers just stared at each other dumbfounded. Finally, one of them asked, "What did she roll?" The other answered, "I don't know, I thought YOU were watching!"
Moral: Not all blondes are dumb, but all men are men.

I'm so tired right now, it's ridiculous! It's been a really long, draining day. "Well, Laurie, if you're so tired, you should take a nap." Thank you for the advice, reader, but I can't take a nap because I have to go to my psych lecture. Possibly the most boring class in the world. But it's alright because tomorrow I have no horribly bad classes. Theatre Ed, which is full of wonderfully fantastic people, and French. My teacher's very amusing, well he tries to be anyways. I signed up for my hours for Stagecraft today. I'm working on Forum! It should be fun though, great cast and crew, so I'll be surround by people that I thoroughly enjoy.

Did you know that Skippy has trademarked the phrase, "Super Chunk?" Ew.

-"Loving Chicago is like loving a woman with a broken nose, you may find lovlier lovlies, but never a lovely so real."
-Nelson Algren

I decided to be lazy with my entry today. I am just going to quote some quotes that I found humerous, insperational, or touching. Here goes:
-"Twenty years from now you will be more dissappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade wind in your sails. Explore. Dream." ~Mark Twain

-"Nothing's final until you're dead. And even then I'm sure God negotiates." ~Ever After

-"Wherever you are, act like that's the place to be. Isn't this GREAT?!?" ~Fast Times at Ridgemont High

-"The truth is more important than the facts." ~Frank Lloyd Wright

-"It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

-"No one lasts forever being an asshole. Sure you get things, but only because you stepped on people. I'd rather have people admire me than fear me. I know those words are extreme, but it's like the difference between a super hero and a super villain. They're both powerful, but everyone likes and supports the hero." ~Swizzle Tree

-"Well, there are some things a man just can't run away from." ~Stagecoach
