I never thought that there would be anything better than being young and drunk and listening to a Red Hot Chili Peppers album with your best friend.  The summer of love- doing naughty things with boys, falling in love with girls.  

But I think I have found it.  Californication. The Showtime Series.  There is something seriously refreshing about watching someone who is more fucked-up and depressed then you are.  I'd say it's down right spiritual.  

Course,  it could be this serious downer high I'm on.  I think for most people depression doesn't work.  For me, I get incredible skinny, and I feel like myself.  A great big hollow tree trunk.  If I wasn't so painfully tired all day I might actually get things done.  Here it is 1:30 and I am on some kinda low-blood-sugar-rush.  

I wish I had a million cigarettes and fifth a gin, a glass of orange juice and some strange.  

Maybe I'll just drink a beer and go to bed.

Yellow and Green

I made a purse.

The earth made some vegetables.

I'm studying for my GRE this week and next in order to take the horrible test.  I would rather have a sharp stick in the eye.  

That is usually how these things go for me.  Utter Misery.

Kyle and I received some very bad news on Sunday.  Kyle's dad, Stephen, has a mass over his kidney near his lymph node that is malignant.  The tissue they biopsied was too inflamed to tell what kind of cancer it is, but the doctors are leaning towards lymphoma.  He also has nodules on his lungs that will be biopsied this week.  

Why are the good people always the people who get sick?  It just isn't fair.

I really don't have anything to say

So I'll babble. Maybe I'll think of something.

I cleaned my house this week. Not that it took the whole week- just a couple of days. When you have two shedding, slobbering beasts your house gets dirty incredibly fast.

I bought fabric to make a tote bag type purse. I can't find a yellow pre-fab purse that I like. What the fuck? I also want some yellow flats. I also wants lots of extra time and money. (I thought I would add that just in case someone important is listening.)

I watched the whole third season of Weeds in two days. Getting good use out of the cable anyways.

Next up The L Word.

I think I will watch it while trying to make my purse. I'll take before and afters.

I have seen so many birds this spring. The blue jays are especially thick. I saw a white, kind-of on the orange-y red side, grackle.

Our tomato plant took a beating last night with the storms. Can't complain though cause the house is still standing.

I'm finally done with school. I thought it would never end. What is it about unpleasant things that makes time drag. Whatever it is, it blows. Good news people: as of 11 o'clock today I will never, and I mean never, have to diagram another sentence as long as I live. It brightens my day just thinking about it.

Along with finishing school I also finished the beast of a project I had going known as a Kyle's sister's scrapbook.

Look at the pictures. Here are my three favorites.

Today Kyle and I went walking in the community center trail in out neighborhood. By the pond we saw a momma duck and her 5 little, teeny ducklings. It was the cutest. There was a little rock wall they were trying to jump over to get to a small reservoir. They were having a little bit of trouble, but they all finally made it.

Remember that Criminology test I thought I cut a little close? I needed an 86 or something I thought I may have gotten a 87. Turns out I made 98.57 (why .57? I have no idea). I hit that one out of the park. BIG FAT A.

My luck day

Kyle finally caved and got cable. Can you believe it? He is adamantly against all things television. The things he does for me. I know the real reason we got cable, but don't tell him I know. He wanted a fiber-optic internet connection and you have to get cable in order to upgrade your internet connection. So he plays like it is all for me. So that I can watch the new season of Dexter. Along with Showtime, IFC, Sundance, Encore, and a Oldies Music station I have remote access DVR. I can tell my DVR what to record from a computer far away. That is so damned exciting I can hardly contain myself.

Think of it: Weeds (Mary-Louise Parker is my favorite), Dexter, The L Word, I hear Californication is good, the same for This American Life.

You have to go to the Showtime website to see Mary-Louise Parker decked out in a pin-up style bathing suit. She is adorable. There is a changing picture right on the main page. She is the second picture. Ira Glass is the third picture.
