|Go see "Mean Girls"! It will change your life.
So whoa, it's been three months since my last update. Don't feel bad. It's not you...it's me. My tangible journal is very much the same way, with sporadic nonsensical updates every couple months.
April was probably the craziest month of my life. It started out with Matt's juggling festival, then Improvideo, then the fashion show, then the play, then the last week of school, then checkouts, then ushering for graduation. After ushering today, I headed over to the freshman dorm to do RA stuff. I'm on duty tomorrow, along with doing RA office stuff in the freshman dorm, a meeting with my RD, and checking people out. Then the seniors check out on Sunday, and I have to check out on Monday. My first day of real actual do-nothing-all-day summer will be Tuesday, I hope. Unless something pops up. Which it better not. Or I will flip out. I have penciled in some very crucial sitting around time.
As for this summer, I'm staying in New York, and so is Janet! I'm going to be a summer RA on campus. I'm also on conference staff. I have to play hotel maid--changing sheets, setting out towels, and the like. It should be a most excellent summer, especially with so many people staying in the city. We're hoping to do some quality improv, too.
I keep turning around to check the clock that's not there. I used to update my lj when I worked in the computer lab and I constantly turned around to check the time. Except here in the RA office, there is no clock behind me. Now I associate lj with turning around every 30 seconds. Hmmm. Come to think of it, turning around so much probably caused me to miss a lot of ID-less people.
That's about as condensed as it gets. Bring on my uninterrupted lazy summer...I am SO ready! Current Mood: busy

While working at the EDS Lab, I checked, rechecked, and then checked again everyone's lj in order to pass the time and avoid homework. Because I don't work at the EDS Lab anymore, I spend much less time on the computer than I used to, leading to a dearth of updates.
Now, my computer time is
1. check email
2. check Drudge Report
3. read AIM profiles
4. type up a really bad poem
I hate to report that updates aren't going to be very frequent at all anymore. I sowwy. Current Mood: busy

I got back to my room this afternoon and discovered that pieces of the bathroom ceiling had fallen onto the toilet. When Jodie and I first turned on the bathroom faucet, brown water came out of it. We flipped out and determined that it was like we were in a bad movie where a couple purchases a house only to discover what bad shape it's in. If we stayed in the bad movie, we'd have kooky adventures trying to repair it.
Where is Jodie, anyway? She was supposed to be back like fifty years ago.
A bunch of people came back to school today, so my floor is bustling. I've already been called upon to open people's doors who forgot keys and to do something about the lack of heat. I really can't do anything about the heat! I wish I had a magic heat key but I only have door keys.
I chose a Super Mario Brothers theme for the floor, and I feel pretty awesome about it. I found pictures of Mario as a frog and in the Tanooki suit. Awesome, you say? Yeah, I know.
I really don't want classes to start. I've been having too much fun doing nothing! I'm still recovering from the chaos of last semester. Current Mood: hungry

WHERE IS MY CD CASE? Yeah, ok, I know it's full of bad pop punk and cheesy oldies and oh so many Elton John's greatest hits cds...but it's my bad pop punk and cheesy oldies and Elton John's greatest hits!
Oh man, what if Lauren took it back to school with her? I will be pissed. As pissed as pissed can be. Until Lauren's theft is confirmed, however, I'm more worried than pissed. What could've happened to it? I can't go back to Pratt without my cds!
Therefore, it's settled: I can't resume packing until I've found my cd case. Current Mood: worried

When I think of different years, several defining moments come to mind:
1995--moved back to the states
1998--moved to Colorado, started high school
2000--worked at McDonald's, APUSH
2002--graduation, moved to New York
When I think of 2003, I'll think of improv and 201 and the "Bald Soprano" and 1508 and Dave, among many other things...
It was a good year.
Happy new year, everyone! Current Mood: content

I think my sister, Meagan, is a forty year old woman trapped inside an eleven year old's body.
--she covered me with a blanket when I fell asleep on the couch
--she asked for the Phil Collins CD for Christmas
--she's been doing Winsor Pilates
Hmmm... Current Mood: confused

I have a headache.
My stomach hurts.
My hair is doing a really annoying poofy thing.
I've only eaten a couple triscuits, a piece of pizza, and some Kit Kats in the past two days.
It's really nasty outside.
My American Literature final is DONE, thus making it the best day ever, and me the happiest girl alive. Current Mood: happy

I always dread when people come to me with their computer problems, because I, 99% of the time, cannot help them. I often say, "I'm a writing major. All I know is Word."
So get this...one of my favorite EDS Lab guys came to the desk and goes, "I have a question." My face scrunched up in an "Uh oh" look and I said, "I'll try to help you." (Emphasis on try.) He goes, "I'm using Word" (my face brightened up) "and when I insert things, the letters type over what I just wrote." I was all over that! It was the insert button! THE INSERT BUTTON! I know everything there is to know about that blasted key! I told him about the insert button and pointed it out on the keyboard. "Just click on it once."
As he was leaving to go back to his computer, I said, "Wow, I actually helped someone. I can't believe I was actually able to help someone." He laughed and I swooned.
A couple years ago, I saw a TV special called "Holiday at the White House," or something like that. Bush called for his dog, Barney, to come to him and the darling little dog trotted into the room. We thought the puppy would jump into Bush's arms but he ran right by him. SO CUTE!
I remembered this about two seconds ago while reading an article on the Drudge Report about a Barney Christmas video making the rounds at children's hospitals. Some of my favorite lines:
"'Barney Reloaded' provides a dog's eye view of the White House at Christmas. Various Bush administration officials and White House workers are shown imploring Barney to work rather than play."
"In one scene, Barney is shown playing cards with former Bush spokesman Ari Fleischer. Andy Card walks in and scolds him, 'Barney, I told you no games until the decorations were done!'"
"Laura Bush kept mum about what she plans to give the president for Christmas. Asked by Ahbrea Ross, 11, of Capital Heights, Maryland, she said, 'We can't tell. He might see us on TV.'"
This last line especially makes my eyes tear a little. It's either because it's insanely cute or because I'm really tired, and the littlest things make me want to cry.
I tried to go to www.whitehouse.gov to see the video, but alas, computers fail me yet again.
I want a dog just like Barney! Current Mood: touched
In the city, Ryan and I recited lines from "Rejected": My spoon is too big, I'm a banana, Do you want to see a movie?, I am the queen of France, etc. We got to the, "Life is good!" quote and said it over and over as a woman in a wheelchair, who also had an eyepatch, rolled by us. What are the chances?? Wheelchair AND eyepatch?? Ryan thinks the woman thought we were mocking her. If that's the case, we're going straight to hell. Current Mood: nervous

There's an unattended NutriGrain bar with one bite out of it on the printer table and I'm totally eyeing it.
I am a disgusting human being.
I am George Costanza. Current Mood: hungry

Drinking unlimited soda and eating unlimited food, going up to what you think is your table and chugging water from what you think is your glass only to discover you went to the wrong table and drank from someone else's glass, wearing tennis shoes with a fancy dress, dancing and not caring how crazy you look, singing so loudly that your throat hurts, keeling over with laughter, walking through the gentle and enchanting snowfall...all in the company of amazing friends...
I had so much fun at the Winter Ball. Current Mood: happy

Some kid keeps printing really big pictures of Jackie Chan and I'm thinking that's gotta stop.
(Ok, it doesn't really have to stop. Actually, I'd prefer it not stop, because I think it's pretty awesome. I just wanted to throw an "Emperor's New Groove" quote in there.) Current Mood: amused

It appears as if Ralph Ellison's 'The Invisible Man' is, in fact, invisible, for it doesn't exist ANYWHERE. Every copy was checked out at the Pratt library. It was sold out in the bookstore. Matt even drove me to the nearby Brooklyn Public Library, and it wasn't there (which isn't too surprising considering I own more books than that horribly lame library).
As I was flipping out in Matt's car, 'American Pie' came on the radio. Matt and I sat in his car in the parking lot and waited until the song ended, singing as awesomely and as loudly as we could.
I love when songs are so good that I have to sit in the car and wait for them to finish. Current Mood: sleepy

Another fabulous Thanksgiving has passed. I got back to the room to discover that Jodie and Sean had put tape from one headboard to the other so as to create a tape cave on my bed. It's really elaborate. The Prank War continues. If anyone has ideas on how to get Jodie back, please email me asap.
Thanksgiving was amazingly awesome. The Kelloggs rock my face! I always love going to Maryland. Some highlights:
--so much delicious food! I ate so much cranberry sauce and wouldn't mind eating some more.
--seeing and quoting 'Elf' the whole time
--IMDBing everything and discovering 'Da Hip Hop Witch'
--the movies: School of Rock, Dirty Dancing, Corky Romano, A Mighty Wind, Ghost World, Harry and the Hendersons, UHF...
--lunch in Annapolis with Brandie, Janet, Libby
--laughing with my awesome friends. I love them so much! I laughed the hardest at Brandie's Leftovers Party when we watched the 'Cher in Concert' dvd and played "Marry, F***, Kill" (Baloo, The Country Bears, Brother Bear?)
Only three weeks until Christmas break! I hope finals and the plethora of papers don't kill me. Current Mood: thankful
|Tuesday, November 25th, 2003|
Yes! Yes! I did it! Granted, I didn't do it very well, but my revision is DONE!
I'll be hanging out with Janet and Libby around this time tomorrow. And then Thanksgiving! And I'm not going to think about a single paper (and there are many) until I get back on Sunday night.
As for now, it's time to sit back, watch the "Real World" marathon, and drift off into a beautiful nap. Current Mood: peaceful
|Sunday, November 23rd, 2003|
In the bathroom stall, someone wrote, "What ever happened to revolution for the hell of it?"
Another person responded, "There has never been revolution for the hell of it." Current Mood: amused
Two days of school until Thanksgiving break seems like so much. Current Mood: lazy

The weather was perfect today. New York City is perfect.
I'm going to be an RA next semester for the fraternity floor (7th floor pride!) This morning, I went to the RD's room to discuss RA stuff and almost had a heart attack when I saw the view of Manhattan that she has from her window.
Forum was actually informative. Weird...slash awesome.
I ran into Andy and Laura.
Matt and I went to Washington and Dekalb to spy on the filming of 'Sex and the City.' We ended up talking to one of the grips for about half an hour. After a while, I realized that everything I said had to do with their awesome food table. I thought, "Shut up, Lindsay! Shut up! For the love, stop talking about the food!" But alas, I did not. I believe one of the things I said was, "I want to get into television just for the food tables!"
We went to Mike's Diner. Matt had the chicken melt and I had the gyro platter.
Jodie, Matt, and I then watched 'Wet Hot American Summer.' SOOOOO GOOD! IMDB rating is 6.2 (it should be much higher in my opinion).
There should be more days like today. Current Mood: content
