Welsh Corgi or not, I want a puppy so much. It's been a long time since we had a pet, and the last one I got really attached to, Tiny, I still miss sometimes. I used to think I'd be betraying her if I get a new pet, but how could I know for sure if I never get one? Plus, I need cuteness around here.

I finally got around to changing my ING delivery service to e-mail only. If that's not an accomplishment, I don't know what is.

I'm supposed to have a field trip for Filipino Studies today. In class last Wednesday, the professor gave us a rough idea of where it's going to be. "It's at the Historic Filipinotown in LA, at West Temple and [insert street name here]." She even drew us a grid of lines she called a "map" on the board to help us find our way. Not like it helped. I didn't even know such a place existed.

Anyway, she promised to upload directions and a proper map up on Blackboard. Six hours before the class was supposed to meet, no nothing has been added to the site. So I have no idea what to do and where to go. Should I call someone? I really only have contact information on a couple of people in class, and even then, I probably know more that them. Should I ditch? It would be nice to get some sleep. Then I can bum around all day and run a few errands. And maybe visit some friends.

Oh well. I'll check again in a few hours. I actually wanted to go, too. I need to learn about my peeps, yo!

Oh, and Universal Studios Halloween Haunt was fun. Lilia screamed some! And that was enough to make my night.

Celebration ticket stock being shredded. Oh joy!!!

Never in my 22 years of existence did I ever expect to watch a racially offensive, operatic, German fairy tale puppet show with references to durian and The Lion King. Nor did I actually want to. Thanks a lot,
Salzburg Marionettes.

This morning, at the admin kitchen, I had my first run-in with the OCPAC president.

Terry Dwyer: (In a very cheery, I-have-had-my-morning-coffee voice) One of these days, we're gonna have a show in the Concert Hall, a show at Segerstrom Hall, a show at Samueli, and a free outdoor show at the plaza. And there's gonna be up to 6,000 people here in one day! It would be amazing!

Me: (In a they-shut-down-the-Bristol-exit-and-I-was-late-for-work-and-I-haven't-had-coffee-and-fuck-it's-been-so-busy voice) Oh, that would be awful!

Terry Dwyer: awfully good!

Me: Oh that's right. Awfully good, awfully good! Gotta go, bye...

Dear friends,

Next time I even think about spending money frivolously, please just hit me (GENTLY!).


P.S. Guitar Hero 2, when it is released, will be considered a necessary purchase.

Heroes is actually pretty good. I think I might start watching regularly, if only I don't have to close on Mondays. The only drawback is the pixie-haired, skinny white girl who cannot act for shit. Normally, the solution would be to turn away when she is on screen. But as she spends all her time with Mohinder, who's like really really for sure totally hawwwt!!! and has a British accent, it would be kind of a stupid idea. Really, the only thing to do is to grit my teeth and suck it up. And later send her the dental bills to get my teeth fixed for the damage she caused.

Anyway. Work today? It was a'ight. Highlight of the day was Ky's throwback to one of my childhood shows: Bananas in Pajamas.

I love pockets and compartments. They are useful and decorative. And they make life so much easier!

That being said, I bought a new purse.


Stop looking at me like that.

A poll for my Filipino friends:

I consider myself a(n)...

(a) Asian
(b) Pacific Islander

If (b), why? And why are you so stupid? I don't want to repeat myself again. I already wrote about it

An article in Wikipedia on Pacific Islanders has this to say:

"Inhabitants of the Chinese, Taiwanese, Japanese, Philippine, and Indonesian islands, although technically bordering the Pacific Ocean, are not considered Pacific Islanders because such islands are not located in any of the three regions of Oceania, and are therefore classified as 'Asians'."

So there!

(P.S. Yay for October 15th!)

Chalk up the lack of new entries to things being ok. School is school, and although I've been pretty stupid in handling some aspects of it, it is not something I can't deal with. Work has been busy, but having tons of stuff to do at least makes me feel useful. I guess I've been pretty good with keeping myself calm lately. It could be my inner hippie unleashing itself or the situation I currently am involved in, but I am happy.

Watch, just by saying this, I've probably jinxed myself. Next week, things will fall apart and I will wake up a bitch-monster. Maybe then, I will have more updates.

The only good thing about this cold/sore throat/cough combination is that I am now in possession of a sexy bedroom voice. Rawr!

Everything else about it -- the light-headedness, the painful swallowing, the runny nose, the necessity for mouth breathing -- I can do without.

I am compelled to write another disgusting, period-related entry for Don, but I've run out of stories. Maybe next month.

I love good timing! I had completely forgotten what time of the month it was last night, and on my way home, I got worried that it had started and I just didn't feel it. Even more so, that I might've stained things. Hee! So I rush home, check my behind. So far so good. Run to the bathroom, and the second I sit on the toilet, the gushing began. And I was so so happy!

I actually seriously contemplated stopping by the now-24-hour Wal-Mart to buy The Little Mermaid DVD. If I had done so, I would not have made it. It's fate.
