Bite my ass, Cingular Wireless
The cell phone industry is a fucking racket. We're looking around the house for pawnable items thanks to recent overage charges and roaming charges from my trip to Ohio.
I won't tell you how much our collective bill is, but rest assured that it is totally unmanageable.
My general mood continues to decline.

all apologies
I'm still around. Just dreadfully uninteresting these days so I'm sparing you all. Had drinks (early) with some friends that, for the life of me, I don't know why I don't spend more time with. My Friday has started well, although a couple of drinks in I think I said the "f" word on the phone with my mom. No, I definitely said it. And I said it like this, "they fucked me over" which is very unladylike when talking to one's mom.

I'm waiting for BG so that we can go to a party but I think I need to wash my face and put on a little make-up since I've been picking at my stress related pimple on my chin for the past 15 minutes. (dad, don't tell mom! yes, I know you read this every day...)

Since I have little else to say, I will leave you with an excerpt from a published collection of my friend DHH's work titled "Pete Hoffman Days"
Q: What do John Q. Public and a piano have in common?
A: They are both grand, upright and square.

Not so cute in costume. Very cute.

Garden State and Open Water are finally in theatres here.

I'm going to Hong Kong for X-mas and New Year's!!!!!!! A co-worker invited me yesterday; so, I said "why not?" I'll be there for 10 days, including one day on the plane. Her boyfriend lives there, which means we'll have a good tour guide. She asked me if it would be ok if we went to concerts featuring Chinese superstars. Uh, yeah I don't I'll have a problem with that AT ALL. The shopping will be great too. I've needed a vacation for awhile, but I didn't expect going to another continent.

Heaven, I'm in Heaven
The Hottie Aussie returns! He's entering the Ph. d program with me. To refresh your memory: "In my morning class of nine graduates including two law students, there's silence, except from me and the hottie Aussie next to me." This was in reference to the post about the Kitty Genovese Syndrome within the classroom.
I'm determined to start my 25th year off right. Too bad there are 92 criminology graduates--60 of those are female. I went to a beginning of the year social this evening and let's just say that the competition is fierce.

"are you gonna post?" he asks.
Big Gray* is back from his brief, albeit rewarding trip to FLA to visit The Agent. He bought me a really cool "folding" lamp- for those who don't have room for ordinary lamps...
I spent the weekend freaking out about my new "class", went to a wedding reception for an indie rock icon, consoled a good friend on the the loss of his dog**, laundry, and sleeping sprawled out on the bed.
Upon BG's return, I announced that we need a bigger bed. His reply: "you're crazy."

*He has an interview at my school tomorrow. Working together might be a good thing, or we might freak out and eat each other. Hey, a job's a job.
**Rollins Benson, one of the top five dogs to ever roam the earth, passed away on Saturday. Wherever dogs go when they die, I'm sure they are in good company.
Let's pour one out for Rolly. We loved him.

Love the Redundancy
Is there any reason why vegetable broth wouldn't be vegetarian? The Swanson company advertises "Vegetarian Vegetable Broth". Are we such a carnivorous nation that we cannot fully comprehend the word "vegetable"?
