    All this new stuff...all this change to get used to...I don't know what to do at all.




    I'm terribly confused...I may go hide under a pile of old coats for a few hours.


    Before I turn into a whimpering ball, covered in old laundry...how is everybody doing?


    My busy summer has ended, and my much, much busier second-to-last semester has begun...fun, fun, fun...and by fun, of course, I mean not fun.

    Huh...time has again begun slipping...I need to go eat and shower and stuff...but I'll be back...you can't get rid of me.

    Actually, what with all the registration and whatnot, you probably could get rid of me, tallman. It's a sobering thought that if I don't remain within acceptable limits, you'll no doubt replace me with a newer, more obedient foucualt. I know you've had one ready to go for a while...though my sources tell me, it's still kind of buggy, so at least I have that in my favor.

    Yeah, I know, it's overwhelming, isn't it? So many things to do, so little time...

    I'm doing well, thanks for asking:) I mentioned on the other board that I got a promotion, which was nice, but also a bit overwhelming, especially in that the position hasn't stabilized at all because my team isn't yet complete (and everyone keeps going on vacation!) Anyway, quite busy, but in a good way.

    I went to a friend's wedding last weekend. Quite a posh affair. It was at a place called the Pleasantville Chateau, which apparently has quite a good reputation. Food and grounds were exceptional. The wedding must have cost a fortune. I got pretty drunk. I even danced.

    Let's see, what else? Lots of reading and movie watching of late. First, I finished Vernor Vinge's A Deepness in the Sky. I enjoyed the novel, but I thought the end was a little odd. It worked out, but it was a little contrived. It's worth a read, but I hear one of his other books is better (and I liked this one enough that I'll probably read that other one).

    Watched all 5 movies in The Yakuza Papers: Battles Without Honor & Humanity. Excellent Japanese gangster films, if a little downbeat. Very violent, and paints a less than savory depiction of post-war Japan and it's economic recovery. Also very confusing, as there are a ton of characters and families, each with their own strange, complex web of connections between each other. Plus, a large number of characters are killed barely after they're introduced. You'll probably be hearing more about this on the blog at one point or another. Perhaps I'll actually do a review (I know, mentioning that I'll do a review is the kiss of death here at kaedring, but still)

    Well, that's all for now. Good hearing from you foucault:)

    How's everyone else?

    Just hearing foucault talk about starting his new semester makes me cringe. I guess I'm not ready to go to grad school. Good thing I got me a job.

    I'm itching the paint the walls in our new apartment. We have to have some color or I'll die of blahness.

    I'm attempting to repaint my dresser. My family had this thing for a long time, possibly from before I was born, I don't know. As kids, my siblings and I scratched it up, put a sticker on it, and it's just outdated anyway.

    So, I took off the old, ugly hardware, plugged up some holes and scratches, then I have to sand off the old paint (or at least some of it), put on new paint, and attach new knobs.
    I like hands-on projects.

    Last month, my boyfriend and I would eat out at a resaurant every Friday night because after 4 years of having no disposable income we just had to treat ourselves. Oh man did I eat some good food.
    One restaurant called North by Northwest had delicious roasted red bell pepper mashed potatoes, garlic fries, a "field greens" salad (apples, caramelized walnuts, crumbled bleu cheese with aged sherry vinaigrette), and grilled vegetable pizza (grilled bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, zucchini and eggplant over basil pesto, topped with feta and mozzarella cheese -- the crust was soooo good). I'm salivating just thinking about it.
    I had delicious fries, veggie kabobs, and a chocolate milkshake at The Shady Grove.
    Must go back....

    I recently bought an <a href="http://www.chocolatebar.com/">Endangered Species Chocolate Bar</a> from my local grocer. I got the Black Rhino Bar, which is dark chocolate with hazelnut toffee. It is oh-so delicious.

    And, I still managed to lose weight and tone up! Muhahahaha!
    I haven't been to the gym in a week and a half, but I was moving into a new apartment with 5 flights of stairs in the hot sun, so I still got a workout.

    We're in the market for a new TV. And entertainment center. And sofa. And many other things. I knew this was going to happen once we had disposable income. Must control spending...must not be materialistic and petty...must resist pretty electronics...

    GAH!

    You should be able to make it so that html is the default way of posting. Maybe it's something I can set...

    Also, are you able to edit your own posts? I can, but that may just be because I'm the admin...

    Good food is good. Those meals sound quite nice. I've had a couple of really great meals lately too...
