I think I lost an earring.

I miss our cable.

It all started when Cassie knocked on my door and said, "The man in the truck outside just took our cable." Now, readers, you have to understand that this wasn't a huge surprise since we haven't paid for cable since we moved in because we never signed up for it. Cassie left for work and I went on with my TV-free day. The boys came home and I informed them of our new Cable-less situation. (Doug did NOT take it well at all.) We were all simply ruined over the news that we have to actually converse with each other now because that mean man took the buffer that was TV. I went to work. I came home. I listened to Doug yell some more, then I got on the internet to see what our options were. Long story, short: Starting the 9th, we're paying for cable.

Deanna and I played in the rain last night. It was totally awesome. We were sitting in my apartment and we heard laughter and debauchery outside. We looked out the window and Adal, Katie, and Big Scott were playing splashing around the puddles in the pouring rain. We immediatly jumped up and ran outside. We played in the rain and got soaked. It was so much fun.

Fahrenheit 9/11

Cheered by supporters, Michael Moore previewed his Bush-bashing documentary, "Fahrenheit 9/11," before a mostly Democratic audience in the nation's capital Wednesday night. Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe said he thought the film would play an important role in this election year. (What a coincidence! A movie about George W. Bush released before the election! Terry McAuliffe should be elected Vice President...of Obvious Town!)

The two-hour film depicts President Bush as lazy and oblivious to warnings in the summer of 2001 that al-Qaida was poised to strike. It also accuses the administration of manipulating the Sept. 11 attacks and fanning terrorism fears to win support for the Iraq war.

Dozens of fans greeted Moore outside the theater with applause and shouts of "Go Michael!" Moore, a fervent Bush critic, said he hopes the movie will get people to the ballot box in November. (Because if they go in October, it won't mean as much! Haha, I kill myself.)

-Seriously, go see the movie. It's still at the Normal Theatre. Four Dollars, I think you can afford it.

I've been waiting for that to happen.

Scene: During a very drunken Roommate Night; Cassie, Doug, Laurie, and Adam sit in thier living room asking each other "Would you Rather..." questions.
Laurie: Okay, guys; I've got a good one. For a year, Would you rather constantly have the hiccups or bang your bunny phone every 10 minutes?
Cassie: (Not even trying to control her laughter) I'd have to go with the Bunny Phone. HaHa. (Doug and Cassie start doing impressions of a bunny phone.)
Laurie:Oh, Damn, It really says Funny Bone.
Adam: (Sluring his words.) Guys, I think Laurie's drunk.

I got a kick out of this and I thought you guys might too. This is Ken's actual description of finals:

Ah, finals week. How can I possibly describe my feelings towards finals week?

Perhaps with a metaphor. Finals week is like having a tiny fairy fly around your head, screaming all the time.


And once other fairies hear the first fairy screaming, they swoop down and start screaming too.


Once you've got 20 or so of them swirling around your head and screaming at you, that's when a shark comes and eats you.

Wow. Just wow. Walking into the boys apartment with all of those candles burning and beautiful flowers in the room completely swept me off my feet. By far the best Mock Prom experience to date.

Readers, Please don't tar and feather me. I tried to post a Friday Five this week. I was really ambitious; I went to the site and, much to my dismay, this was the message that awaited me: "None this week!"
-No explanation, no signs of remorse. They even appear to be excited about the lack of a Friday Five. Why would they use an explanation point?

Happy St. Pat's Day! To commemorate this occasion, I've decided to share some of my favorite quotes about the Irish:

-"I'm so glad I'm fuckin' Irish" -Colin Farrell

-"In order to find his equal, an Irishman is forced to talk to God." -Stephen Braveheart

-"May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow, and may trouble avoid you wherever you go."-Irish Blessing

-"Give an Irishman lager for a month, and he's a dead man. An Irishman is lined with copper, and the beer corrodes it. But whiskey polishes the copper and is the saving of him." -Mark Twain

-"God invented whiskey so the Irish wouldn't rule the world." -Anonymous

-"Maybe it's bred in the bone, but the sound of pipes is a little bit of heaven to some of us." -Nancy O'Keeefe

-"St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time - a day to begin transforming winter's dreams into summer's magic." -Adrienne Cook

-"The curse of the Irish is not that they don't know the words to a song -- it's that they know them all." -Susan Dooley

-"This [the Irish] is one race of people for whom psychoanalysis is of no use whatsoever." -Sigmund Freud

You guys, seriously, go see the play, "Crowns". It's really good.

(P.S. - I hope you're reading this:

So, after my attempt to give up murder for Lent last year was unsuccessful, I decided to be a bit more practical this year. I'm learning from my mistakes. (I knew it would be too hard to give up murder cold turkey.) So, this Lenten season, I'm taking a cue from one Christy O'Connor. For Lent this year, I need your help. I'm trying to get to bed before 1:00 every weeknight (weekend nights excluded). Here's where you come in:
a) Don't keep me up, if you can help it
b) If you see me online or awake in general, yell at me.

My brother thinks it's funny that I have an away message saved on my computer that says "I love you." That's not what he finds funny though. He laughs because it's titled Boca Burgers.

Sunday, February 08, 2004

I liked being down there this weekend.
-Leslie, Lindsey, Jared, and others: Sorry I didn't get to see you. I just couldn't make it to TED. I think I may come down for the night on Friday to see Deanna talk about Vaginas.
-Jon: *sigh*
-Deanna: Chew your food, honey.

This is going to be SUCH a long week.

You should be dating a Leo.
July 23 - August 22
This mate is honest and loyal, with a sunny disposition. Though this lion has the tendency to be arrogant, sulky or smug, he/she is unrestrained in bed.
What Zodiac Sign Are You Attracted To?
brought to you by Quizilla

-Alright, a Leo. After reading this, I decided to see how well Leos and Libras go together while I was reading my horoscope. Here's what it said:

:Leo and Libra have a successful relationship because each of them can appreciate and benefit from the attributes of the other. As a combination, Leo and Libra are well-balanced. Libra is charming and cultural, and has good manners which offset Leo's direct and acerbic personality. Leo can help their partners to make decisions more easily and act on them, and they can teach the art of spontaneity. Leo is ruled by The Sun and Libra is ruled by the Planet Venus. The two Signs coming together form the basic foundation of relationships -- warmth and passion. The Sun and Venus go well together. The sun is a masculine energy and Venus a feminine, so this relationship is a good balance of charged energies. Venus is about beauty of romance, and The Sun is about sustaining life and propagating light. This couple is resilient and can fortify one another for a long time. Each partner brings to the relationship what the other is missing, so theirs is a highly compatible relationship.

We all know that the Yankees lost the World Series. But there's another group of nine men in pinstripe suits...well, eight men and one woman...who are also struggling in a losing battle of their own. I'm talking of course about the democratic presidential hopefuls that are heading to Iowa this week for the first caucus of this election on January 19th.
I haven't recapped any political action lately, so I thought I'd give you all a heads up.
-Carol Mosely Braun dropped out of the race, but she is throwing her political support to Howard Dean. Despite the fact that people question Dean because of his lack of minority board members while he was Gov. of Vermont. Her endorsement provides an opportunity for the media to move the news out of "how many minorities did Dean have in his inner circle" to "what exactly are the Democrats going to do to defeat George Bush." I'm sorry the only woman in the field had to bow out so early.
-In what appears to be the making of an amazing political "back from the dead" story, John Kerry continues to move ahead in Iowa. Many insiders say it looks like Iowa is going to be a 4-way tie between Kerry, Dean, Gephardt, and Edwards.
-George W. Bush is launching a shuttle to Mars. Which, to me, means that he has lost all hope of saving Earth and has decided to move on.
