If you have not seen the new episode of the Office, drop EVERYTHING you are doing and watch it on nbc.com RIGHT NOW. Seriously. It is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

Do you ever look at the history of your Google search bar and think "What the fuck??" Here are some of my recent searches:

* methadone clinic
* hard boiled eggs
* paul newman
* frozen earth
* average number of calories per day
* wintergrass festival, tacoma
* mcsweeny
* textbooks
* stevie wonder

Looking at a list like that I think 'what was i doing that i had time to search for hard boiled eggs and stevie wonder?' But there it is.
Oh, so I got my computer back!
That is why I'm updating after about a year of not updating. Mostly I'm doing this because of you, Emily (if you're reading this) because I love reading your entries and realize i used to post a lot more frequently. I miss you! I will probably be doing a lot more posting soon because I start school on Monday. I am nervous and happy to be doing something other than working. I hate working. I hate the Gap. May it burn in hell. Okay, that is strong, but seriously, that place has sucked the life out me. Anyway, once i start school there will be papers to put off, so i'm sure i will spend a lot of time here and on facebook again, as a proper student should. I should actually be studying right now because i have an Arabic placement exam coming up on Tuesday. It's kind of a formality, but I'm still really nervous that I've forgotten everything and will mess it up. I also need to buy A LOT of things to get school started. I need a desk for my room (everything is STILL in boxes), supplies like pencils and pens and notebooks, textbooks and a school bag. (I refuse to buy a backpack). I should also get some sensible shoes for the rain and all the walking i will be doing, but let's face it, that probably won't happen. Oh, for those of you who don't know, my sister and I moved into a new apartment in downtown Seattle. We moved in in November and it's been pretty nice. It's a good size, so we're not in each other's way and it's fun to live with Brita because we get along most of the time. You should all come and see it sometime! (if you haven't already done so). Anyway, I will try to update soon, I am going to try and get some work done.
Happy New Year, everyone! May 2008 be infinitely better than 2007. Infinitely.

stop what you are doing and go watch a movie outside.
it is very, very nice.

starter kit:
you will need
-2 sleeping bags (one to put underneath you to guard against slugs and the other to actually lie in)
-1 laptop for viewing purposes
-1 extension cord that runs from your basement to the great outdoors
-1 sweatshirt
-1 wonderful movie (i suggest the shipping news )
-1 cute puppy to bribe with treats to sit with you
-1 set of headphones so you can listen without complaining neighbors
-2 nice pillows

potential hazards:
-the aforementioned slugs (small but disgusting)
-electrocution when trying to plug the computer in
-airborne insects
-waking the "parents" while gathering supplies
-being slightly afraid of your basement in the dark whilst you try to find said extension cord and sleeping bags
-copious amounts of dew (that sounds gross)

but it is all worth it. i would have slept outside but i feared for my computer's life (in case of rain)
so, what are you waiting for? get to it!

things to do:

* feed the neighbor's cat
* go show my face at anthropologie again, and basically beg to work there (see adrienne?)
* meet brita on broadway for dinner
* hopefully take some photobooth pictures with brita
* go see my uncle's band.. though i may not actually get to watch his because i want to leave early to
* go see dylan's friend's band

my uncle is in a band of all lawyers. he works at a law firm (he's not a lawyer, he's like the courier guy) and they made a band. he's really good at guitar etc. but i find the name "The Perkins-Coulee Band" depressing. Though not as depressing as "Lawyerpalooza" which is the "festival" tonight. I fear it will be old saddos with too much alcohol and overcompensation.

i was reading my old entries from last year and they seemed to be much more exciting and well, colorful. i can't decide if that aspect is a good thing or not...
lately i've been actually enjoying the sun, which is new for me. i like that it is nice out. but rain is of course, always welcome.

last night i babysat for my cousin, max. i don't like babysitting, but my aunt and uncle's house makes it all worth it. dear god it's amazing. i think they should will it to me. though, they will probably outlive me because they are two of the healthiest people i can think of. very lance armstrong. i want to live on capital hill quite badly.

okay, i am just rambling and should start being productive. so i shall.
oh! and it's rose's birthday today, so everyone who knows her should call her and tell her how much they adore her.
that is all, dear pandas.

p.s. have i ever mentioned to you how much i love brad paisley? if you have not heard of him and like country... FIND HIM

My ipod has been stolen or lost.
Either way it's like tearing out my lungs. (in other words not having music to walk around with is like trying to live without lungs. doesn't work.)
because i have this freakish capacity to feel physical attachment to music/this electronic device i am on the hunt for a new one and/or the blood of the person who took it from me. well, not blood, cause that's gross, but i would be okay with ruining their life.
why would anyone want it anyway? there's hardly any room on it, it's super old, doesn't have pictures or color or anything. it randomly shuts down and oh, most importantly, it is mine.
okay, i will stop. but all i can say is if i don't get it back/ a new one (even though they are SO freakishly expensive. and i refuse to pay for a stupid color/photo one) quite soon my life may be over.

wow. i can't believe it. i am actually leaving tomorrow. it's so surreal. saying goodbye to certain people (especially when it's hardly a good-bye at all) is very hard. but we'll all find friends at our respective destinations. i won't ask you to not forget me because that sounds so dumb, but please don't. i will not forget you. right now i honestly cannot imagine better people than some of the ones i know. so.
i just want to say that i love you all and will keep in touch. i will probably bother you to no end, but that's how it goes.

and so on and so forth.
