Loan Me $50

I realized I don’t have any money. I barely have enough to scrape by through the next month, and I’ve already made some foolish purchases, so technically I’m in the hole some. Hopefully I can get a temp job for the bizarre four-week mid-January-to-mid-February break. If not, I’m screwed. I may have to—shudder—borrow money from my parents. Or—double shudder—get a real (well, semi-real…) job again.

‘Tis the Season…FOR PAIN!

Christmas was about as thrilling as Parts: The Clonus Horror, but I have some neat-o toys to play with. And Woody Allen DVDs out the wazoo. And a sorely needed new stereo. And I blew some Christmas c@$h on Buffy season 2…seasons 1 and 3 soon to follow, but I needed to order 2 ASAP because a friend of mine sent me a 10% off Amazon dealie for it. Niiiiiiiiice.

And it snowed. Cool.

A few days ago, I wrote the first two chapters of the novel I’ve been not really planning for the last month. I planned to write a big, long post about it, and then I stopped caring, so I scrapped that idea.

And unless I get another desperate person at the door tonight, I’ll probably be watching It’s a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story.

What a Fun Life I Lead

I went to see Adaptation tonight with Lucy. As I suspected, it was fantastic. Far superior to Being John Malkovich, which is kinda saying something. And I’m hearing that his next two scripts that are in the works—Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, which I believe is coming out soon, and Enternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind—are even better. My God, Kaufman’s on a roll.

And Then There Was FUN!

Today sort of zipped by. I guess it was because, abnormally, I had my voice lesson today at noon (as opposed to Fridays at 2:30), and then I went to go get a haircut. Or maybe it was the ten hours of Vice City. Who knows?

This Week in Compliments

I don’t know how in the fuck it’s come to this—from being the most hated person in Fiction Writing to the most beloved in six short weeks. Well, maybe I’m exaggerating about being the most beloved, but I’m definitely more well-liked now than I was previously. My absurd satire of genres and other people’s work sort of dissolved a few weeks ago, when we were assigned to write from the perspective of what’s called an “opposite character.” Now, in case you don’t have a firm grasp of the English language, the “opposite character” is a character that is the opposite of you. Complex, ain’t it?

We Don’t Need Your Education, We Don’t Need Your Thought Control!

I’ve been thinking about college lately. Maybe it was the sudden desire to change majors (again), maybe it’s the disillusionment with the quality (or lack thereof) of my education so far, maybe it was the sudden compulsion to choose to go to a different school and pursue a “real” major. Whatever it was, I’m sick of it, and I no longer want to go.
