Month: February 2011

i like days like this where i have something to focus on. i know it’s just watching four movies before the oscars, which isn’t really furthering my career or anything, but i feel like i’m getting something done. structure. i should plan out days like this more often. one day i’ll finish a book, one day i’ll beat a video…

attended my first hockey game ever last night. it was very much like what you see on tv, i guess, just from a lower angle and with fewer stunning moves (college players). my favorite part was the train horn that went off when msu scored. i need a train horn. also, hockey games seem long. like 1.5 games of basketball.…

one of my favorite parts of drinking (perhaps my most favorite at this point in time), is when i get drunk enough to be able to belligerently expel a wide range of accents and emily laughs practically until she pees. it doesn’t take too much alcohol for either of us, fortunately, but it does take volume for me, and perhaps…

i finished reading y: the last man here in the barnes and nobles basement and, i have to say, this was the first comic book/graphic novel series that i’ve read that actually made me tear up a little besides maybe blankets. but blankets was good in a literary way, real and fulfilling in a solid, lunch-like way. y, on the…

phone interview morphed into a potential pen-and-paper exam as soon as epic is able to find a proctor in east lansing. level up! i really haven’t applied to very many more places in the past two weeks, but i did finally get around to google. that’d be nice simply because it’s in ann arbor and i wouldn’t feel so detached…

there seems to be a general television trend towards heros/anti-heros with vast brain capacity, but limited ability to “feel.” house probably started it all off, but the procedurals picked it up soon after. finally, though, a worthy candidate for “smartest and most socially awkward” seems to have arrived. i watched the 3 episode run of bbc’s sherlock over the past…

the district courtroom of east lansing looks much more like a church than anything else. visitors/rubberneckers sit in several rows of benches, otherwise known as pews. there are several tables loaded with possibly religious detritus. up at the front there’s a pulpit type thing for the judge/priest. and off to the side is a box for the jury/choir. if i…

we had a snowpocalypse tuesday night. msu called a wednesday snow day at 4 goddamn pm the day before, which was patently absurd. people were lining up to buy kegs within minutes of the announcement hitting the airwaves. 10-16 inches of snow was being called for, which realistically isn’t that bad without the addition of strong winds. i guess chicago…
