a whole new world

Things I've Learned Since 5/5/05 :

1. my laptop needs a janaza. even though it was missing the "T" key, it was good to me. it put up with my abuse for 3 years. i cant even say that about many people. i loved you, laptop.

2. i'm fickle when it comes to love. i cant help but shake my ghettobooty when i think about the new laptop i might get. (sidenote: i love technology, but not as much as you, you see. but i still love techonology.)

3. post 1st-amendment final adrenaline rushes can cause heart attacks.

4. i thought i would completely crash out after my last final, but instead, i stared at my ceiling thinking about how my blood vessells were hurting until lulu and T$ picked me up at 8am.

5. i fall into the category of people who can sleep in a car during a roadtrip.

6. truck drivers are my mehrem.

7. univ of chicago needs random tanning booths placed every 50 feet so people can at least pretend theyve seen the sun before.

8. if i had gone to an ivy for undergrad, i would have been forced to crush on the construction workers.

9. i wish i knew kip so i could crush on him instead.

10. our love is the real thing.

11. eating sushi and looking through a window that only lets you see the shoes of people walking outside is interesting.

12. lulu is cooler than ice cream and pancakes.

13. question for lulu: would you be scared of spider man too? bc i do want you to be at my wedding.

14. i always thought that i liked window shopping at expensive, yuppy stores. i dont. they make me the kind of sleepy where you feel like throwing pancakes and cheap generic syrup at the sales women.

15. i like to shop where drag queens shop.

16. i like lala's new shoes.

17. i am really starting to enjoy the color yellow.

18. diners that leak on your friend's head and have a million pieces of gum stuck to the underside of the table you're sitting at probably arent a good place to host a party.

19. lala definitely has what it takes to be an amazing photographer. she knows how to get up close and really understand her subject, especially when its herself at a hispanic prebsytarian church.

20. greektown does not exist.

21. T$ should look into becoming a professional tour guide when shes taking a break from saving the world.

22. never follow the advice of some people on where to smoke sheesha.

23. i still am in search of my elusive ice cream and pancakes meal. :(

24. i only like people for what theyre wearing.

25. what i learned at the nawawi conference: connect with people or something.

26. i have a new theory about bowling. people would be able to bowl over 45 if the shoes were more attractive.

27. screaming for no reason whatsoever is pure joy.

28. oprah's car has a beeping alarm.

29. sammy sosa rides a vespa.

30. theres no place like devon to stalk a guy in a turquoise shirt carrying a purse.

31. i love the lake but not when its cold.

32. hijabis + karaoke + toddy frog's (i forget the name) = awesomeness.

33. its nice to be in the protection of 3 amazing superheros.

34. some people are so beautifully imperfect - theyre perfect.

35. i am indescribably lucky to have access to good people.

36. intensity is breathtaking.

37. everyone should watch kingdom of heaven.

38. i want a better conscience.

39. i will really miss this place.

40. i need to thank everyone ive loved in my life. i love you all. intensely.

41. music is amazing. again.


salam bombay

first amendment. take home final from hell. coming soon. i feel like a melting popsicle.

for some reason, even though i havent heard it recently or anything, i cant get the words to karma chameleon out of my head. i wonder if my esteemed 1st A professor ever had a boy george phase. actually, anyone who ever so effortlessly manages to slip in the fact that he clerked for justice blackmun into every 3rd sentence in a conversation about whether target is better than walmart probably had a boy george phase. how else did he manage to turn into such a hero?

anyhow, speaking of heroes/80s pop stars/chronic gender identity confusion:

David Hasselhoff, after accepting the Bollywood Movie Award for international star of the year in a ceremony in Atlantic City over the weekend: "I'm proud of shows like 'Baywatch' and 'Knight Rider' because it's about saving lives, not taking lives. It's entertainment, it's tongue in cheek, it brings the world together. I think it's responsible for a lot of world peace." (Reuters)

bollywood & sexy sexy david hasselhoff. sometimes, the good guys really do win.
