halloween ridiculousness, parts I-III [Nov. 1st, 2005|11:42 am]

[music |neutralmilkhotel and bob dylan SIMULTANEOUSLY]

hi. i suppose marie already did 1 and 2 pretty well, and three was last night and is why it's 11:41 and i still haven't really done anything that could be mistaken for productive. but we did meet a studly cop and two pleasant young gentlemen generous with the drinks.  the bottom line:: halloween is a delicious holiday, but also a very drunk one.  and yeah, watch sticks are prety awesome.
i should go to school now.
starting with the beginning ending with the endCollapse )

transportation woes of the downtown 6 and oscar bluemner [Oct. 24th, 2005|11:34 pm]

i have decided now that i could probably live in the whitney forever. i'd sleep in the secret conference room on the fifth floor and eat all three meals in the cafe in the basement and read art books in the middle of the night and dance in the courtyard.
but on a more practical note. should i come home, or partway so, for halloween distractions and excursions (by the way what should i be?!) and see persons of great importance in my life who i've been missing for a while (and those who i saw two wkends ago too...)and also take photographs of pretty trees and colorful things (in black&white, naturally), and not be in the city during rain and messiness; or should i stay here, be a good nycares volunteer and actually attend family day at the whitney, helping scores of small children create an art exhibit, and getting a)free breakfast B)a free tshirt and c)free lunch and theoretically playing at dallin's apt thingy and other related opportunities for ridiculous. harumph.
i made eggplant parm with the bizarre addition of big round noodles. it was subpar, but what wasn't subpar was utterly relaxed essence of the monday night dinnerpartyness, and the warmfuzzywine feeling that's lingering in my legs. YUM.

there is altogether too much rain in my life right now. and probably not enough sleep, or peace of mind even.

so yesterday i got yelled at about the bible. in the middle of class. because i was trying to explain how genesis is basically creation myth/explanation for all the environmental catastrophes that could only be the work of God. And Job, similarly, is the religious reasoning behind why bad things happen to good people. Overall, the way people justified the things that went wrong in their lives--by saying that it was all just part of God's greater justice and they were too human to understand. Apparently that makes me a God-hater, hardcore. Talk about your awkward situation in a class of 25 when some kid goes off on you for not being as religious as he is. lovely.
to add insult to injury, i went to my next class only to have someone accidentally spill a full water bottle in my lap. that left me both wet and angry.
besides this, the blob came to visit last weekend, meaning we spent much more time napping, eating quiche and pumkin cognac cheescake, aimlessly wandering, and drinking ourselves silly than i had planned. the weekend was lovely, but i didn't do my homework. any of my homework. and now i'm stressed out.
i bought myself daisies on the way home to make things okay, and they are pink and orange and red and in a water glass on my desk.
i'm going to go to photo class now. i found film in the camera from probably 14 yrs ago. I am in my turtle sandbox and i have bangs and look very happy.

we have the emo-est dorm wall in the history of the world, and it's all just a big mistake

hewlett-packard, and conversations of the west are ruining my lives.
three of my favoritest mechanical/electronic devices are broken right now. my ipod, my camera, my phone. i am lost, and reverting to the internet for survival.
and despite all of the above having absorbed my time, leaving none for productive activities...
i'm rallying for jenn's bday and going to some bar. go me. oh yeah, and i'm wearing the shortest skirt ever.

i'm not as ditzy as all that makes me sound.

it's about time? [Sep. 7th, 2005|07:10 pm]
Lauren
[mood |optimistic]
[music |cooking crashes]

because i'm reinventing the art of procrastination, and because today and last week have been too lovely for me to want to open a book just yet... because phone calls from home don't make me lonely anymore (even if i don't answer them) because of free food and a gaining sense of life direction (that might be a lie)!
and because our ceiling has so many lanterns on it it looks like a circus. we bought a $20 tv, and posters from the cute boy at the seaport and pet turtles from canal street, and our sexy magnetic poetry (probe her genital button!) is in heavy rotation. we hung phallic andy warhol and ex-boyfriend's trendy paintings and christmas lights and oven mitts. i've learned that left to my own devices i will subsist more or less on grilled cheese sandwiches, avocados and applesauce. and while none of this makes much sense, probably since i was awake at 6 this morning to go to work after a frantic night of acquiring and arranging the aforementioned decorations...it's nice to live somewhere that feels like home instead of just somewhere to sleep.

don't know how to shrink it!

happy birthdays!

between inebriated lazertag and photobooths, disgruntled employees and pinatas, not to mention a good deal of cake and macncheese it's been a good week.
