Don't judge me based on what I say

I have a lot on my plate this week. If my workload continues to be as crazy in the following weeks to come, the chances of me forming coherent sentences on this blog will go down by 87.9%. (Trust me, this number is absolutely correct. I took statistics and calculus, you know. If anyone knows about this kind of stuff, it's me. Unless you read this entry, then you know I'm lying when I say you can quote any calculations I make.)

Anyways I shouldn't be allowed to talk anymore (this is what my "friend" suggests to me everyday, and now I'm starting to agree with him), because everytime I do, it's always about how I don't like the weather or how sick I am or how layering clothes has me feeling smothered. Where did this feeling come from? I used to love wearing coats, boots, scarves and multiple layers. Now clothes make me feel claustrophobic. This is coming from someone who is completely, completely fashion obsessed. WHAT is happening to me? It's like I've become possessed by some nudist cult or something. I should be murdered.

Today's songs are The Teenagers - Love No and The Black Ghosts - Face

Coming up with plausible excuses is one of my many, many useful talents.

"I'm sick."

This will always, always be my favorite excuse for anything. Why were you late? Because I'm sick. How come you're taking your shitty moodiness out on me? I'm sick. I thought you said you were going to help me with so and so today. Sorry, I can't. I'm sick. You're being highly annoying right now. Don't talk to me like that, I'm sick, you don't even know what I'm going through right now, asshole!

Et cetera, et cetera.

Then if people tell you you're "being ridiculous," you can say to them, "Well, duh, that's because I'm sick." Trust me, people will leave you alone after this.

Another good one is "I fell down the stairs." No one really uses this one a lot and it's more specific than "I hurt myself", so it's believable. Or "I have food poisoning" which is a step higher than the general "I'm sick." You see, I put a lot of thought into these kinds of things.

Of course, I am actually sick. That's why I haven't been blogging as much lately. (See? It's perfect). But really, I'm actually sick. I've barely gotten any sleep lately because I've been coughing my head off at night. I feel terrible, I have no appetite, and I'm always in a bad mood as a result. Not a happy camper. I'm also taking three different kinds of meds, all to no avail. And I didn't go to class today either, of course. Take pity on the sick girl.

I would seriously give up three years of my life, if it means that I will live the remaining years of my life untouched by sickness. I think if I add up the days and days I've spent sick in bed and suffering from coughs and cold, it would span for months and months.

Songs today are MK Ultra, Undisclosed Desires, and I Belong to You off the new Muse album, The Resistance. You can download the entire album here. Enjoy.

Happy Thursday everyone.

"Bros before hoes." Why? Because your bros are always there for you. They have got your back after your ho rips yours heart out for no good reason. And you are nothing but great to your ho, and you told her that she was the only ho for you, and that she was better than all the other hoes in the world... and then... and then suddenly she's not yo' ho' no mo'.

Yay I flashed bunch of total strangers today

Way way way too hot today. Should have worn less clothes. We're having better weather in September than we did back in July, it's ridiculous.

Speaking of less clothes, I think I might've flashed everyone at the train station today and gave everyone a great view of my ass...skirt kinda-might've-probably rode up an extraordinary amount while I was walking up the train steps. You're welcome Calgary.

I wasn't even the slightest embarrassed as these types of things happen to me a lot. I also have a habit of reaching out for poles that don't exist when I lose my balance on the train. And then I try to play it off cool but that doesn't work either.

I think I've lost the ability to be embarrassed. No, probably not.

Okay, that's all. This blog is becoming more and more about my dumb, ditzy self and less and less about my real self...which isn't really all that dumb and ditzy. Going to take a shower (hot water isn't running for some reason today so I'm reduced to showering in freezing ice cold water) and then some reading. Here's a picture of an extremely yummy looking grilled cheese sandwich:

Song today is Empire of the Sun - We Are the People

"If I could make the world as pure and strange as what I see, I'd put you in the mirror I put in front of me."

My needs are important (obviously) / The trapeze swinger

Lately, my life has been all about trying to figure out my schedule for school and it's not working very well as every single class I am trying to get into is completely full and no one seems to be dropping anything.

Hello? People? Don't you realize that my needs are extremely important? I demand you appease my wishes and drop that accounting class so I can take your spot! I will bake you cookies. I can't promise that they will be the greatest cookies ever though.

I have been at the computer CONSTANTLY checking for open classes on PeopleSoft, refreshing the page every 5 minutes. The only time I stepped away from the computer was for food, to quickly dye my hair (running downstairs shortly afterwards with my shower cap on to keep guard of my class) and for food.

And (while we're on the subject of things that drive me crazy) can someone tell me WHAT is with all the concerts this year?! I am broke and yet all these bands keep coming to town to taunt me. I have been practicing a lot of self control lately. WTF METRIC WTF...why couldn't you come at a time when I had money?

Also, I've been on edge a lot lately, and although irritating, none of the above has anything to do with it. Little things drive me up the wall, and I feel terrible for snapping at people who happen to be within my vicinity when my aggravation strikes. Either I turn into some super bitch or I refuse to talk at all. I think it might be because of myself than anybody else. I'm hoping that it will pass within the next few days.

Yikes. Run for cover people. This post has been all about ME and what I NEED and what needs to be changed in order to accommodate MY wishes. (I am not like this usually, I promise).

Some more food pictures...breakfast edition:

Song today is Iron & Wine - The Trapeze Swinger

Feeling down in the dumps. Things are going kind of weird for me right now. Not sure where this is coming from and why. More to come later.

All my dreams have come true at last

*You're allowed to skip everything I've written and just drool at the pictures.

Someone has answered my prayers. Coldstone Creamery has come to Calgary! I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me when we drove by the sign that read NEW! COLDSTONE CREAMERY (or something along the lines of that...I can't really remember for I was way too excited). If I was the one driving, a U-turn would have been made. Apparently, they've opened branches in three Tim Horton locations. THREE! That's like, triple the goody goodness.

I had it on Sunday, and I already know we're going to have a great relationship. The best of the best. Nothing can come between me and my ice cream.

I want it now. NOW. NOW.

All of this would look even better in my belly. so good. Here's the full creation menu.

PS. I can't believe it's already September. This is my last week of freedom before school starts up again and my schedule's not even done. Let me weep. Summer is over.

Song today is Norah Jones - Come Away With Me
