You can totally sing 'America the Beautiful' to the tune of 'Auld Lang Syne'. Go on, try it!

It works with 'Kingsfold' too. Gah, I wish I had my hymnal. I could play this game all day!

I also wish I had a pipe organ in the living room, but hey.

I've begun reading Dracula again. I hope to finish it this time.

I did not know that Béla Lugosi was buried in his costume. Or that Lugoj is a place.

Seeing words with 'j's on the ends of them makes me curious about Slovenia.

i'd better be off before this gets any more random.

I just dropped 'Theme in 20th cent. American Lit. for Spanish.

Not Spanish 101. Spanish 102.

In addition to Third sem Arabic and Yoruba, respectively.

Masochist? Moron? You make the call. I just want my BA and my ESL certificate, dammit.

Plus I already have the books.

Kiyota sensee (and the other sensees for that matter) and just starting to learn our names, since we now have tare and your name goes on your tare, you get the idea. Yesterday he says "Tia...that's not an Anglicized name. Where are you from?" (which I found charming for some reason), and to which I truthfully replied "Milwaukee," at which he said "Oh", and smiled.

In retrospect I guess I could have explained that I was named after a species of liquor, which is probably the kind of explanation we was looking for, just not worded that way. The words just weren't handy at that moment. Oh well. Adds an air of mystery to my persona. Like Greta Garbo. Or Yul Brynner. But blacker.

If I ever shave my head, I'm going to sing "A Puzzlement" and "Shall We Dance?" on a loop until it grows back. Oh who am I kidding? I've had the whole score memorized since I was 12.

"I will loooooooooove being looooooooove byyyyyyyy youuuuuuuuuu..."

mkpoet is on the futon, propped up, course reader and highlighter in lap, dozing adorably.

I'm soooo tempted to sneak up and declare, "I am Skeletor, bow down to my awesome red power!!!"

But that would be cruel.

And she might kill me.

*sigh* Sleep on, my pretty. WHILE YOU CAN.

I think I'm coming down with something.

My lower limbs are all achy. And it's not a "You've been exercising too much" achy. It's a "This is your body fighting infection" achy.

I've been sleeping a lot. I'm tired all the time.

Really, really don't want to go to kendo. But it's only day two of using body armor and I should sure use the practice, since it's so ritualised.

Nothing like being hit on the head with a wooden sword to cure a fever. Gah.

Today in Zoology I learned some fun facts. Among them:

- 137 species go extinct every day (and my precious bonobos are endangered! Noooo! Those apes hold the mystery to life itself!)
- 2.4 acres of forest are lost every second
- based on the resources used by humans, there should only be 100,000 of us on the planet.

And in Women's Studies, the moral of the story was:

- doctors are drug pushers!

Now, understand, I'm Ms. Grain of Salt and now that I've heard these shocking things (some of which I've been hearing before), I want to know who's saying them and what's their source and who's their source's daddy and so forth.

That being said, if anyone needs me, I'll be practising subsistence agriculture in the Yucatân jungle from now until the end times.

I thoroughly enjoyed Batman Begins. It had much more flesh and bone than its predecessors. Hooray for life!
