"I'm a nun - I'm a penguin!"

rejoice! i'm finally doing laundry! well, i did laundry 8 days ago, and i would have done laundry yesterday if i wasn't so busy. but i'm wearing overalls, and i usually only wear them when all my jeans are in the hamper (i wear all my pants twice before washing). i used to wear overalls every other day back in junior high, but now i only wear them once every few weeks. they don't seem as comfortable as they used to be. i guess that's because i'm 30 pounds heavier, and the "lumps and bumps" (as laura refers to curves) feel funny against the fabric. oh well. they were better back in the day.

last night i heard a lound crash and woke up, saw something had fallen over, and went back to sleep. this morning i found my mannequin lying on her back (her arm fell off and she had some scratches, but she was fine when i stood her back up and put the arm back on) and part of one of the beds had fallen over (my dad took apart the other bed, and one of the parts was propped against the dresser). well, i had my sword propped against the bed part, and it fell on top of it. when i was inspecting minerva for damage, i found that her bellguard (the rounded thing by the handle for those clueless to sword anatomy) was pretty bent. i bet it can be fixed easily (i'll ask one of the professors next time i fence), but still, my beloved minerva got hurt! i can still hold the sword and everything, but the bellguard just looks wrong. *sigh*

ugh, lunch was full of chemicals that my stomach doesn't like very much. and the midol is just starting to kick in. bleh. today is an "off" day, i guess. tomorrow i hope i'll be better, because it's HALLOWEEN, the day my year revolves around, and i have a busy schedule then. i have art in the morning, we're watching "blue velvet" in film class in the afternoon, and there's a costume party at the agp house before rocky horror at midnight. i also have to squeeze my little religious celebration in there sometime. i'll be sure to get to bed early tonight. if any of you see me online after 10 pm EST, harass me.

pomegranate blood

its blood is an acquired taste
each seed wrapped in a bittersweet tear
hundreds and hundreds in a thick-skinned orb
each fruit like bubble wrap waiting to be popped
piercing the flesh
its watery blood drips down your knife
ripened seeds spill from the mother fruit
taste it now
the essence of life a symbol of death
the bait for persephone’s soul
as the wheel of the year spins
the strange fruits drop
feeding the world
a taste of blood
"I'm a nun - I'm a penguin!"

what the fuck, it's 10 pm, why are sorority girls running around screaming on a wednesday night? bleh i hate the 4th floor, even if i do have a single with an awesome ceiling.

ben sat with me at dinner (dinner was depressing as usual, and it gave me heartburn), and we had an interesting talk. we talked about what we're probably going to be like when we're old and how we'd scare our daughter's boyfriends. and at the golem meeting we didn't do critiques, we colored posters and talked. emily said she wants me to get married just to see what kind of weird wedding i'd have. so i promptly asked ben to marry me. he said he'd have to get back to me on it. i like randomly proposing to people, especially if i've just met them. it always catches them off-guard. i think if i ever do get married, i'll probably either marry a midget or some really tall, skinny guy (so we can go on maury's "opposites attract" episodes). of course, 90% of guys i know are complete assholes, and the decent ones are either gay or just treat me as a friend. well, that's all right. i want someone who's intelligent, drug/alcohol/tobacco/marijuana/etc.-free, isn't guided by genitalia/hormones, and chivalrous. i really don't care about appearances or gender. just be clean and nice. and 18-24. but i can wait, i've been single all my life (except maybe 1st grade hehehe), i'm not dying from lack of romance or anything like SOME people. i'm just too shy to make a move on anyone. i drop subtle and sometimes bizarre hints, but nobody picks up on them, and if anyone is doing the same to me, i'm oblivious. yeah, proposing to ben was pretty bizarre and not very subtle, but i'm like that. it was supposed to be a joke, and he realized that. though i do kinda like him... he's very interesting. he cracks me up. and he's intelligent and kinda prudish. that's good. and if ANY of you reading this happen to know who i'm talking about (ummm, i really only know a couple people from allegheny on here, i don't know how many actually read my journal...), i wouldn't recommend telling ben unless you want to embarrass me, and even then i wouldn't recommend it unless you want a pineapple shoved up your let's-not-go-there. but i doubt anyone here would hint anything to him anyway. meanwhile, i always hide stuff like this so i never get ANYWHERE because i'm a social retard... ah well.

anyway, why does the heater always smell funny when it decides to work? and why have i been ranting about the heater in just about every post i've made this week? seriously, the heater has issues.

oh yeah, i was going to go to bed early tonight, wasn't i? i guess i should put the clean sheets on my bed and go night-night then.

night night!
