Random Things About Me

1. If I had any sort of scientific leaning, I would get the hell out of library school and study epidemiology. I discovered last year that I LOVE reading about epidemics and diseases, and I feel that epidemiology is actually this really fascinating mixture of science, anthropology, and history. Last night, Heather came over and she, Lorien, and I were talking about Things We Do Other Than Go To School and we discovered that Heather and I share a love of books about epidemics. Weird, huh?

2. I love Death Cab for Cutie. I know, with all of the OC exposure that they've gotten, they're no longer quite as cool as they used to be, but seriously, you guys, they're fucking awesome. Ben Gibbard has such a nice voice and I think that the songs' lyrics are pretty good. (P.S.--I love The Postal Service, too.)

WARNING (FOR AUNDRA): OC SPOILER AHEAD
3. I think I care too much about the characters on The OC. We watched the new episode last night, and I found myself getting upset with Seth for being a stupid bastard about Summer (Seth, baby, even though I'm upset with the things you do sometimes, that doesn't mean that I no longer love you. But really, man, stop being a douche bag.), and I have never been prouder of Marissa than when she a) stopped that girl from getting gang raped and b) finally went home to her mom. Ryan needs to learn that sometimes it doesn't matter what other people think, and if attending your high school graduation in a trashy dress will make your mom happy, then you need to fucking suck it up.

Dad, you might not want to read this next one.
4. I am the (not so) proud owner of some really weird porn, through no fault of my own. I was trying to get last week's episode of The OC that I missed (do you see what I go through for you, Lorien?) and ended up getting this very strange movie featuring people having sex in some kind of graveyard, or maybe it features dead people having sex. I'm not really sure, as I haven't watched it, but the scenery seemed very gothic and dark, and I thought I saw a coffin. Note: Even though I didn't mean to acquire this porn, I'm pretty sure I'll end up watching it before I delete it.

5. I got a blender yesterday and I'm a bit too excited about it. I am just ecstatic about being able to make smoothies, margaritas, and hummus (not to be consumed together, I suppose). It's part of my Summer Plan, which consists of: fixing up the deck so that we have some shade on one side and pretty flowers and veggie plants on the other side, getting a CD player for the kitchen/deck and rigging it up so that we can attach our iPods to it, and drinking copious amounts of blended alcoholic beverages including, but not limited to, margaritas and pina coladas. I'm such a sucker for artificial pineapple flavor. Now all I need to do is find a way for Lorien to stay here this summer and I'll be set. Party's at my house!

  • I agree. If I leave, I will be missing out on all the fun. Our blender is so cool. I had such a wonderful smoothie for breakfast that I want another one (but then it might not be so special...what shall I do?).

  • This is why we are friends, Tasha...because it is hard to find people that don't think it is weird that you like to read about diseases. I am glad we found each other.

  • Dude you need to bring this disease thing up with my mom. Really, who else can talk about poop and other things in that nature while having dinner.
    Anyways, I did watch the OC as it actually aired this time so there was no spoiler... but the porn... dude ZOMBIE PORN (I had a roommate who was fearful of zombies {not you}). And don't worry i've already ordered your b-day gift.
