the background on my laptop finally got changed. i should probably save my sweet desktop backgrounds somewhere before devious motherfuckers change them. i’m really quite upset about this. i’ll miss my cthulhu octopi. won seven games of beer pong last night with steve. it was pretty cool. i don’t usually do that well. the party at michael’s tonight features a…

i wrote three pages of poetry tonight in an attempt to create a poem my teacher might like. point a: three pages is probably the equivalent of all the poetry i had written before taking this class. point b: this is kind of a perversion of the art form, trying to conform to someone’s standards. she never really told us…

i wrote another poem just now, in my head. try this one on for size. Think of how many times you’ve fallen down the stairs.Once?Twice?Never?The answer is: not enough except replace “fallen down the stairs” with “bought vibrating buttplugs”

i wonder if it’s just winter bearing down on me, but i feel like i’ve retracted into my shell a little bit. post-dinner, i don’t really leave my room. diablo II, maps, books, sometimes homework all keep me nicely occupied right here at my desk. i might be drawn downstairs for the occasional magic game, but it’s unlikely. i think…

saturday’s party went ridiculously well considering the changes we were attempting. no beer pong, live jazz band, less of the fancy flavored shots. i was expecting a normal, low-key turn-out that would act awkward around the music and be bored without games. but no! zack’s musical friends showed up early and it all just flowed forth from there. the music…

having won at settlers three times in a row, i think it’s fair to say that i am now a dynasty. you all had best drop some mad respect before these knees. i be pimpin out wheat and ore left and right. shit knows. my teacher’s response to my poem follows as such: “no uniting trope, it’s prose. you’re telling,…

lost was pretty good, if you’re someone who likes lost and doesn’t care about being confused. nine months without a new episode was a long time, though. i remembered almost nothing. here’s that poem i wrote. i think it’s decent. maybe there’s a deeper meaning, which i suspect would make it more than decent. probably something about orca whales or…

barack obama’s president. i watched the inauguration on bet. i guess since “the man” is now black, that means that us white folks are the downtrodden and overlooked. i don’t feel any more powerful, really. just pissed. a lot. at nothing. we read our own poetry for the first time in my intro to poetry class. the teacher is an…

friday night was the best party i’ve been to in a long time, in terms of pure socializing goodness. it was a classy affair, thrown by matt’s roomies, attended by maybe 20 people. not huge by any means, but about 80% girls, so you can imagine that i felt right at home! i guess i was just excited to have…

i survived the first week of spring semester. not a huge surprise, i guess. it was a close one there for a second, since the “spring” part of the semester was almost entirely a lie. negative temperatures do not qualify as spring, i’m afraid. someone should let the dean know. or the snow miser. i invited people over to watch…
